About the property

Immaculate 1 BR/1BA Private Guest Home at Ke Iki Beach, North Shore! Sleeps 2-3

Aloha and welcome to our Newly Remodeled in 2018 (New pics coming Soon!)Non-Smoking, WIFI, Air Conditioned private one bedroom cottage/guest home in the prestigious, highly coveted Sunset Neighborhood/ Ke Iki beach community! Immaculate, meticulously maintained and managed with every detail. We have been in business for 14 years with a 25% return business and have well over 200 5 star reviews among our various marketing platforms! * Please note we have a 3-5 Night minimum unless less days are available and requesting dates that are same day check in /check out as a previous reservation increases your odds of acceptance.

The location is as good as it gets on the North Shore, hands down!!! Located in a private, secure, gated community in the very heart of the north shore surfing beach area between Waimea Bay & Pipeline whilst tucked away in a lush tropical neighborhood setting on the beach side of Kamehameha HWY. At the top of the driveway is a 2 mile bike path (2 bikes included) which parallels the ocean on one side and a breath taking, romantic beach less then a 2 minute walk on the other side of the home. Sharks Cove Marine Life Park (snorkeling/diving), Food Trucks, Coffee Bean & Tea and Foodland Grocery are all within a 10-15 minute walk. Spend your time relaxing instead of sitting in traffic trying to get around! All surf contests are a short walk or bike ride from the cottage. Don't be fooled by other properties stretching the truth on their North Shore/Beach location, this is "EXACTLY" where you want to be. *Please note, previous guests have wished they stayed up here in one location and done day trips to the other parts of the island given it's only one hour from one side to the other vs. checking in/out with other accommodations. Once your here, it's hard to leave! :)

Traditional Hawaii meets contemporary living in this professionally decorated, vacation retreat with art work from local surf photographer Dave Homcy, Al Furtado and Jocelyn Ching. Relax in a quiet air conditioning surrounded by elegant teak furnishings from Indonesia, cherry wood kitchen cabinets, vaulted ceilings, and a slate bathroom with vessel stone sink/waterfall faucet , Jacuzzi® bathtub and Washlet/Bidet. Enjoy a 4K 43" LCD SMART HDTV with High Def Cable TV/Movie channels , Blu-Ray DVD, & BOSE Home Theater System! Listen to your favorite music using Bluetooth from your Tablet, Ipod or Smartphone! Large windows throughout the cottage bring in natural light on the first floor. Each window is surrounded with exotic palms/ bamboo, tropical plants offering privacy from surrounding neighbors and a perfect setting for breakfast in the morning as the sun comes up. In 2018 we rebuilt the deck with stainless steel/Brazilian walnut railings for an elegant finish. A full size stainless steel BBQ with seating for 4 and mauka (mountain) views allows you to eat outside if you prefer and listen to the pounding surf during winter months. Also in 2018 we added a hand carved Indonesian King sized bed frame/new mattress and put in a Lava Rock Hot/Cold outdoor shower to knock off the sand after a hard day at the beach.

About Ke Iki Beach Hale

Both my wife and I are well seasoned travelers with over 25 years experience in the hospitality business. I was born on the mainland and moved to Oahu after working at the ski resorts in Colorado, however have lived on the islands for 25 plus years. My wife is born and raised on Oahu.

Ke Iki Beach Hale purchased this cottage in 17

Why Ke Iki Beach Hale chose Haleiwa

Both of us are surfers and why we choose to live on the North Shore, however started the business because we enjoy meeting people from all over the world that love to travel and share similar interests.

Although we have a self check in system I try and greet the guests upon check in and offer some suggestions to make their first 24 hours are a thoughtless one and to ensure they have everything they need. Once settled in we are available if you need anything, however we give you full privacy to enjoy your vacation.

I'm very involved with the running of the property in between guests making sure it's in top shape and working order. I have 14 years experience in property management and over 20 years in hospitality. I try and get ahead of things before they happen to make sure your stay runs flawlessly, so you can just relax. :)

What makes this cottage unique

Frankly, it's a dream location and we are thankful to have had the option to buy the home after renting it for many years. Most days the beauty is simply surreal. Almost every morning starts with a rainbow over the ocean, then surf the day away and end it with a beautiful sunset. Why live anywhere else....

This is the place

  • 5 of 5

Our main purpose was to relax and learn to surf. At first we were not very focused on the house, because we were not expecting to spend much time on it (only to sleep). But then we arrived to this cottage and fall in love... with her and with each other again :) The place is wonderfull, you have everything you need inside and outside... and you will stay in the famous "7 mile miracle" of surf. Use your bikes and explore all the beaches near the cottage, but if you don't want to exercise than just walk 2 minutes and relax on the beautifull beach a few meters away from the house. Lovely small town Hale'iwa is just 10 minutes drive but again if you don't want go that much far, you have it all just walking distance from the house: Foodland, Starbucks and some nice small restaurants. Last but not least, Anna and Aaron were great and gave us the tips we needed when we asked for it.

We hope to visit you again soon...

Simply amazing

  • 5 of 5

Can’t say enough good things about this north shore gem. The location was just perfect for us. The unit was super clean and cozy. Aaron was very helpful and made us feel right at home. The beach is sooo close and shark’s cove is walking distance. I will definitely return. Thank you Aaron and Anna.

Perfect for two

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week in this cottage, which was perfectly located and very close to the most beautiful beach. The North Shore waves were something that we will never forget, neither the world best surfers, who we saw practising right in front of us. The house was equipped to perfection, very cosy and functional. And Aaron was a very friendly host. We will definitely recommend Aaron’s house to everybody. It was also easy to drive around, and even Waikiki and Honolulu were not too far for a day trip, but The North Shore was a much more interesting area to stay.

Very cute, great location, very nice folks!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the apartment. About a 5 minute walk to the beach, 10 minutes to Shark’s cove snorkeling and food carts and groceries. Location was awesome! Home is nicely furnished with nice cooking pots, pans, utensils, coffee maker, washer, dryer, etc. Need to bring all food, shampoo with you. Nice seasonings there for you. The upstairs bedroom is tent like, with the fan running, very comfortable. We enjoyed the easy bicycle ride to watch the Pipeline surfing and reading there great table top books on the area. Aaron was very helpful from booking to beckoning us good bye!

Amazing place, great location, excellent host, truly enjoyed my time!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage has been recently updated and has all the amenities you could need. It was very clean and open, surrounded by tropical foliage. Aaron was very responsive and easy to communicate with. The location was great; the beach is right around the corner and you can hear the waves from the lanai. It is located in close proximity to a grocery store and food trucks. An excellent place to snorkel is Shark's Cove which is very close to cottage. The bikes and the grill were very convenient. Highly recommend this place to anybody looking to relax and enjoy the North Shore.

Located in the very heart of the 7 mile miracle of surfing/north shore beaches. Enjoy world class surfing, big wave tow surfing, diving, snorkeling, tide pools, whale watching, and awe-inspiring sunsets, basketball courts, tennis courts. Still want more?!! Just a short 15-20 minute drive along the coast will bring you to Turtle Bay Resort and Spa. Play a round of golf on one of two professional grade golf courses (home of the Senior PGA tournament) or spend a soothing afternoon at the spa and fine dining after. Have too many drinks? Just jump on "The Bus" back and it will drop you off within half a block of the cottage. Easy.
