Great property, wonderful host, better than advertised

  • 5 of 5

Believe all the positive reviews you read about this property, then book it and prepare for an authentic, memorable stay at the heart of Oahu's North Shore. As owner of this studio apt, Larry is a local surf legend who personifies the aloha spirit: friendly, laid-back, helpful and makes a great espresso. The only downside of this truly outstanding rental property is a bit of highway noise, which is forgivable and nothing more than a minor annoyance in the grand scheme of things because you're just a short walk away from Velzyland, Sunset beach and Ted's Bakery, and a short bike or car ride to nearby famed locales including Pipeline, Pupukea, Haleiwa, Waimea Bay, Turtle Bay, and everything else the 7-mile Miracle has to offer. The studio is very roomy, well equipped with all amenities (wifi, two-person jacuzzi tub, huge walk-in closet, fridge, hotplate, dishes, glasses, cutlery, tv/dvd, etc. etc.), and it's spotlessly clean. You'll look like a local pedalling around on Larry's bikes, and you'll put his snorkel gear to good use at nearby Shark's Cove. The furnished deck overlooking a secured backyard (which includes a hot-water outdoor shower that's great following sandy beach visits) is a relaxing spot to enjoy your morning coffee and evening cocktails. Something most other reviews fail to mention is just how tremendously friendly the North Shore locals are; they make you wonder why anyone would travel all the way to Hawaii and then choose to stay only in Waikiki. Get thee to the North Shore. Larry promised my wife and I "an epic vacation" for our 25th anniversary, and his little piece of paradise delivered. Mahalo, Larry!

Clean and fully stocked

Great little get away on the north shore. Bikes and beach gear are terrific. Only complaint is the Hwy noise but otherwise it's great. Larry and Hanna are endlessly helpful.

beautiful accom, awesome location, everything u need!

  • 5 of 5

Larry and Daniella have the most wonderful place to stay. Spotlessly clean, plenty of room, nice functional kitchen, amazing spa bath and bathroom, walk in wardrobe and cool lanai . The yard is great too with a hot shower, place to store boards and chill out. A barbque to use and just across the road from the most gorgeous Velzyland Beach and close to all the North Shore!. Its private and totally safe and just up the road from the food trucks and Turtle Bay Resort ( sunset drinks and Hawaiian music and dancing!),,we couldn't speak more highly of the place!

Nice studio apartment, but not for everyone

  • 3 of 5

Pros: Daniela is a very kind host who is willing to do anything to make your stay more comfortable. The outdoor shower is excellent. The kitchen and bathroom are very nice as well. This studio apartment is clean and well decorated. The lanai has nice chairs and a partial ocean view. The location is a short walk from the beach and a short drive from all of the North Shore attractions. Bikes, boards, chairs, and other beach gear are available for you to use.

Cons: The main highway is between this apartment and the beach. I was awoken several times at night by loud vehicles. I was unable to close the windows because the apartment was very warm that night (I stayed here in late June and it was near 90 degrees that day). The studio does have a good air conditioner, but it wasn't able to keep the apartment cool enough for my liking (I'm from Utah and am used to 90+ degree temps).

It is also worth mentioning that the bed is very firm. My back was somewhat sore in the morning. Daniela offered a foam pad for the bed and even offered to let us use her own air conditioner to cool the place down. I chose to check out and find another place, and Daniela was kind enough to refund the remainder of the nights.

Overall, the place is nice and Daniela couldn't have been more kind and accomodating. She went out of her way to get the apartment cleaned and ready for us with only a few hours notice. I was being picky because I was on my honeymoon and wanted a more comfortable stay. Although I wouldn't recommend this place for honeymooners, it is a great place to stay for anybody else looking for some fun on Oahu's beautiful North Shore.

We spent a week at Daniela and Larry's studio and could not have asked for more! The studio is in a great location to explore the North Shore and provides everything you could possibly need. It actually seems larger than it appears in the pictures and has a spacious walk-in closet that easily held our luggage and served as a changing room. The studio is tastefully furnished with comfortable furniture (I slept like a baby the entire time we were there) and has a well stocked kitchen in terms of dishes, glasses, cookware, etc. There were plenty of extra towels and sheets and even a couple of ponchos in the event it was raining. It also has a great lanai with two comfy chairs and a cafe table which is perfect for your morning coffee or an evening drink or dinner. I also want to stress how clean the studio was; it was spotless, kitchen, floors, bathroom everything and no bugs. This was very important to me as I am a clean freak and have left places before if they didn't meet my standards.

The beach is a quick walk across the street and was the perfect place for a walk or to watch the sunset or the surfers. There are also beach supplies you can use while you're there which is very convenient. We just tossed the stuff in the back of the rental car on Monday and took it everywhere we went. The studio is also within walking distance to Ted's Bakery, which quickly turned into a morning routine for us. I highly recommend the glazers, so yummy. It is also a short drive to Shark's Cove (snorkeling) and Shark's Cove Grill which had great food.

We had a fantastic stay and Daniela and Larry were great! Their hospitality can't be beat! Daniela was very prompt to reply to our initial inquiry and kept in contact with us through the day of our check-in. Once there, they are around if you need anything but otherwise you wouldn't know they were there. We would absolutely stay at their studio again and highly recommend this studio to anyone looking for a great place to stay in the North Shore! Go ahead and book; you won't be sorry!
