Perfect holiday home for us
We have stayed on the North Shore a number of times, and decided we wanted to be in Haleiwa, close to the beach, and walking distance from the town. This little house was perfect. Opposite the beach park, it was about a minutes walk to the beach, and a two minute walk to the main shopping street. The house was well equipped with a great kitchen, comfortable beds and plenty of room for 2 adults, 2 teenagers. Just what we were hoping for. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.
Small clean house at the boat harbor next to Haleiwa Ali Beach park. Great town, great beach.
Haleiwa is a good base for visiting the north shore. Haleiwa Town has shops, restaurants, groceries. The house is clean and well stocked. Location is walkable to beach park, puaena point, businesses. Earl next door takes care of any issues on site.
Perfect Vacation for families!!
We just returned from our vacation in Hawaii and it was one of the most amazing experiences ever!! The Haleiwa house was not only located perfectly for us but the house was also perfect for us too!!
It was clean and had everything we needed - the kids loved it and so did I!! The kitchen was well stocked, the living room very relaxing and the bedrooms very comfortable. The only thing that could be improved upon would be a newer TV in the living room!
Wendy was just a phone call away and the neighbor was super friendly!!
We will definately be back and are looking forward to our next visit!
Feeling Cheated! House misrepresented.
My daughter and I were looking forward to a girl’s week in Haleiwa. Upon arrival we were very disappointed in the Haleiwa house. The HomeAway website and photos, totally misrepresented the property. While we were expecting a quaint cottage by the harbor instead, we found a home with much deferred maintenance and the need for a serious cleaning.
If you are planning to visit Haleiwa and are looking for a cute, quaint place to stay this is not it. We understand that older homes have their own character however, the things we found were beyond the character of an old home.
What we found:
- The house had an old and musty smell which required 4 bottles of Febreeze to remove
- Window air conditioners were held in place with masking tape
- Electric outlets held in place with masking tape
- No locks on multiple windows and back sliding door
- Bathtub with black mold growing around rim
- Bed linens frayed and pillows stained (we purchased our own pillow cases)
- Patio furniture broken and covers moldy and torn
- Holes in the front deck from rotting wood, where a child or elderly person could easily trip or get hurt
- Back steps and railing rotten and dangerous
- TV’s old, DVD player broken, no working remotes
- Window shades were filthy
- Bugs and spiders painted into the wall
- Spider webs and built up dirt in cracks and corners
- The one and only smoke detector was found on the ground covered in dust
- Bathroom and Kitchen closets with garbage and discarded ant traps
The one positive for this house was the location and neighbor was a very nice man.
If the home owner or rental agent is interested, we have photos documenting the condition of the house.
I would not recommend this property.
I was very suprised and shocked when we received this review. If only this guest had contacted me and expressed her concerns - I would have dealt with these matters.
Since her visit and as part of our regularly scheduled maintenance, the windows have been cleaned (they are hard to keep clean in the rainy/winter season as the storms usually come in onshore), the back steps & deck have been repaired, the bathroom rechaulked and the sheets and beddings have been replaced.
When the house is closed up between rentals, it does get a little stuffy, but once you open the doors and windows there is a lovely cross breeze which airs out the house nicely!
We have a wonderful cleaner who takes great pride in her work and I also do a walk through after every rental. The house is always in good clean condition before every rental.
I will agree that the TVs do need to replaced and this is something I am working with the owner on. Hopefully, we'll have a new TV in the living in the next month or two.
The house is fairly represented on the website, with photos we have taken ourselves and we stand proudly behind our quaint house!!
Renters can call/text/email me anytime and I will address any concerns they have in a timely and efficient manner.
Lovely Place to Chill Out
We had a lovely stay in Haleiwa -the house was very comfortable and the location perfect. Sitting on the porch every day watching the boats at the Marina. The town for shops, bank, hardware, supermarket and restaurants only a short 10 min flat walk. Bay beach and surf beach across the road - I literally swam in the bay beach with green turtles rocking up on the shore only a few metres away-no need to do a tour for this (FREE!!!) Earl next door came by to check on us and kindly dropped off mangos and bananas from his backyard plus also took down a couple of coconuts and opened them for us. Wendy our contact was extremely helpful even after I bombarded her with many questions and concerns when we were booking this place from Australia- ALL GOOD - no worries future guests.. we found a nice restaurant down on the corner called "Haleiwa Joes" nice food and great entertainment (a little pricey) but who cares your on Holiday in Hawaii - Have a Mai Tai and let your cares float away. The only small thing is the twin beds in 2nd bedroom - not the size for a growing 14yr old teenager (my mistake) Aloha and Mahalo (thank you)
Beautiful place, beautiful location, beautiful island.
Love this island every time we come back. Such a beautiful place, almost didn't go home after our holiday...
We stayed for a total of 11 nights. Had up to 6 people staying in the place at one time (Wendy was very accommodating), though most of the time it was less than that. Even with 6, it still felt very roomy. Fully equipped kitchen and living room, including a coffee maker that was integral to some mornings. :)
Super close to everything "downtown" Haleiwa, 10 minute walk max to most of the stores. But also not too busy since you're off the main road. There was a bit of traffic in front of the house, but nothing that bothered us (we are city folk though). Lots of great coffee places, restaurants, surf shops etc in Haleiwa. It is a bit touristy, but it's hard to escape that. You face the harbor, cool to see all the boats going in and out. And a 30 second walk to the beach, which was probably the best part. Great for surfing, lots of locals that go there, does get a bit busy when the wave's good. There's a nice park there too, picnics or sports or anything else that suits your fancy.
Lots of great hikes around as well, we did several. One out by the NW airport (gliding was also really cool!), bunch around the east coast, and a bunch more down in the SE quadrant of the island. There is a bit of driving involved, but you can make a day out of the trips, just avoid rush hour times. Can also recommend Hanauma Bay for snorkeling, or even scuba if you have your own gear / rent some.
After every day it was always nice coming back to this awesome house though, it did feel very much like a home away from home. Cook up some dinner or head into Haleiwa for dinner, relax around the house after a "hard" days work, and pass out in comfy beds, ready to wake up and repeat the next day.
One small note though, and you get this wherever you stay on the North Shore, there's a lot of feral roosters. And they start early. Best to bring earplugs. ;)
