The North Shore of Oahu seemed the perfect choice after 22 years of living aboard, raising two children and sailing a sailboat throughout Mexico, the South Pacific and the Pacific Northwest. My husband and son both avid surfers had to live in the '7 Mile Miracle' and be within walking distance to the surf. I myself love to kayak, paddle outrigger canoe, snorkel and swim. The North Shore is the perfect playground for us to enjoy the ocean that we love.
Judy Knutson purchased this apartment in 2002
We decided to buy and settle on the North Shore to be close to the ocean and the surf. California was just to busy and hectic so in 1985 we set sail for a more quiet lifestyle. After first arriving in Hawaii we lived for many years in Honolulu but the city life was just not for us we had to get away from all the high rise hotels so we moved to the 'country'. We love the simple, quiet country living that the North Shore provides with no high raise hotels and big box stores. Life is good on the North Shore.
What I love most about our location is waking up to the sound of the birds and the falling asleep at night to the gentle trade winds and the sound of 'quiet'. I love the fragrant tropical flowers that I have grown and that are now abundant since we first bought the property. The fragrances of the puakenikeni, plumeria, gardenia, white ginger and trumpet flower are so intoxicating especially after a light tropical rain shower. The mornings and evenings just before sunset are my favorite times to be outside whether working in the yard, riding my bike or going for a refreshing swim at Sunset Beach or Waimea Bay. During the warmer times of the day I find a cool place to sit back with a book. It is so pleasant while reading to be cooled by the gentle trades and serenaded by the birds. I love that our bungalow home is on a safe quiet street perched on the hillside overlooking the ocean and away from the two lane highway and foot traffic that living at or on the beach can have, but yet it is just a short walk down our driveway and street to the beach.
Thank you so much for all the tips for the North Shore and all the extra things you provided for us. We made good use of the snorkel gear! We hope to be back very soon. Mahalo!
Everything you need to have a great time on the north shore of Oahu.
Judy and Marc are excellent host.
The apartment was beautiful and had everything you need to enjoy your time relaxing in between adventures.
If you ask Marc nicely he may even get you a fresh coconut ;)
Highly recommended for anyone looking for a great affordable apartment on the north shore.
This is the best place on the island that my family and I could have vacationed. It is on the most beautiful area of the island (north shore/ sunset beach). It is close to all the best scenery. Me, my girlfriend, and our 11-year old daughter were all very comfortable in this bungalow. There is a cozy pull-out futon couch and a queen-size bed. This apartment is adjacent to another apartment (also managed by Judy & Mark). Both Judy and Mark live upstairs. These apartments are quiet, peaceful, and have beautiful scenery (with ocean view). No one bothers you, although, most of the time you probably will only be there just to sleep anyway. Our family rented a car for the month and we were out of the house as much as possible! But it was nice to know that we had a safe and cozy place to go and sleep at night. Judy and Mark are very nice, knowledgeable, and helpful. If you have any questions or concerns they are there to assist. The pictures listed for this VRBO are accurate. This is where you want to stay to have the full Hawaiian experience. Thanks Mark and Judy!
My husband and I stayed in this cute little bungalow for just over a week in February and it was perfect for the two of us! We loved every minute of our stay. Judy and Mark were very pleasant and kept us updated with the events going on and popular places around town. We happened to be there for the Eddie, which was incredible! We had access to bikes, laundry, a cooler and ice packs, snorkel gear, towels, and several other things which made our trip more affordable. We would definitely stay here again! Thanks for a wonderful experience!
Excellent couple is there to help you for perfect holiday.
Close to everywhere. Teds bakery included. Good stuff to chose from.
Bikes and other beach necessities are really makes your holiday even better.
Thank you Knotson family.
Had such an amazing stay at Judy and Mark's. The bungalow was beautiful and it's in a great location. It is clean, neat and a great size. 3 of us stayed there very comfortably! They have bikes that you can use which made getting around very easy, as we traveled without a car. Close to the ocean and many great attractions, hiking, waimea bay, sharks cove, sunset beach, and a short bus ride to turtle bay, to name a few! Judy was a pleasure to deal with and made everything very easy! I would stay here again in a heartbeat if i return to Oahu! Mahalo for the fantastic stay :)
Had such a blast last time I stayed at Judy and Mark's vacation rental, I had to come again. Stayed both times in the unit with queen size bed, it was perfect for the single traveler! Fully furnished, like being at home! Just a walk down to an awesome surfing area and just up road from the Pipeline!! Great bike path along road. I think I might have to bo back for a 3rd visit!! You might want to schedule before I book for maybe a super long time. j
kite surfing, diving with sharks in shark cages, whale watching -seasonal (December-March), sky diving
