About the property

Secure large 1 bedroom 1 bath fully self contained apartment with ocean views

Awaken to the cheerful songs of birds, gentle trade winds, and views of the ocean. This charming 1-bedroom apartment is nestled on a hill above the famed Velzyland surf break, a short walk to secluded beaches. This is the place for you to experience the country feel that the North Shore has to offer. Enjoy ocean views in a tropical setting cooled by the trade winds. This affordable, clean apartment is fully furnished with all the amenities of home for a hassle and worry free stay.

Unlike hotels and many rentals ALL the bedding is laundered after each guest; mattress pad, blankets, bed spread/quilt, the two pillow case protectors on each pillow and of course all the sheets and pillow cases.

The apartment is located downstairs from the owner’s upstairs residence and adjacent to vrbo 253357 and can be rented as 2 bedroom; a great option for families with teenagers or couples travelling together. Parking is in private driveway off the street in front of the unit providing extra convenience and security. For more information use +1 808 223-1188.

Bikes (2-4) are available for you to explore the tropical bike path leading you to world-famous surf breaks, beaches and reefs. Along the way, enjoy outdoor food truck restaurants, The Coffee Bean and deli at the nearby grocery store. You won't want to miss the short walk to famous Ted's Bakery for their delicious pies, cakes and pastries. Snorkel gear is available for you explore the underwater splendor of nearby reefs; Sharks Cove and Three Tables.

Shops, restaurants and artist galleries are located nearby in historic Haleiwa. Sailing and whale watching tours are available at Haleiwa Boat Harbor and for the more adventurous; diving with the sharks! Rent a kayak to explore the shoreline or learn to surf or paddle board. It's just a 5-minute drive to Turtle Bay Resort with the Arnold Palmer designed golf course and horseback riding. Visit the nearby Polynesian Cultural Center or Waimea Falls Botanical Gardens or try the new Zip Line just down the road or maybe the glider planes or tandem parachute jumping at nearby Dillingham Air Field. Whether you want to just relax at the beach or enjoy the many attractions available, staying on the North Shore provides a departure from crowded and hectic Honolulu/Waikiki, yet close enough to spend the day there. The affordability of this charming, clean apartment allows for extended stays to fully enjoy all that the North Shore and Oahu has to offer so you can splurge on shopping, dinning, and other activities.

About Judy Knutson

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

Why Judy Knutson chose Haleiwa

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 makes this apartment unique

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 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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!

A great place

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much to Judy and her husband. We (2 children and I) stayed one week and had great time. Judy and Mark are very kind and advise very well for visiting. The home is quite, very comfortable with a new kitchen.

All we needed was close : Supermarket, small outside restaurants, beautiful snorkeling beaches at 5 to 10 min drive. I recommand and will return there if I come back to Oah'u.

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 where you want to stay!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

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!

Beautiful and affordable accommodation!!!

  • 5 of 5

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 :)
