Spent four nights at the studio in February and it was awesome. The location is perfect, beach front with access to all of the north shore beaches. Mike was as nice as they come. Very chill, feels like you are living with the locals in a standard neighborhood. Would recommend to all.
We stayed for 6 nights in this wonderful studio suite. It's much larger then it appears in the photos. Ample space for two people , fully equipped and the best part is its on the beach. Located steps to world famous surf breaks at sunset beach and 2 minute drive from pipeline .
Very quite yet minutes away from all the action.
Mike the owner was extremely helpful and kind, we thank him for sharing his beautiful home with us!
We highly recommend booking this studio and we will be back for sure again.

My husband and I stayed here in October for five nights on our 25th anniversary trip to Hawaii - It truly is a great little find! The studio was alot roomier than we had expected and the bathroom is amazing. Loved having basically our own private beach - great for sunbathing, watching surfers or walking. Having access to bikes was great, we rode to Ted's Bakery and down to some of the other beaches to watch the surfers, it was nice being close to Haleiwa but not being right in the middle of the busy little town. Mike was there during our stay and was more than happy to recommend places to go and places to eat. When our inter-island flight to Maui was cancelled due to Hurricane Ana he was so accommodating and we stayed an additional night.
Okay unfortunately I have a couple of things that I feel would have made the entire stay even better - since it was our first time to Hawaii I don't know if the hurricane changed the weather, but it was quite humid and there aren't any ceiling fans - only a small box fan. Ceiling fans would make this studio perfect! Although the bathroom is beautiful, again a good fan would have taken the moisture out and not made it so damp. I would have loved a change of bath towels during our stay. And yes, as another reviewer said - needs better shades, I felt that in the evening there really wasn't much privacy.
All in all it truly is a great little slice of heaven!
What a great studio on the beach. We stayed here for 6 nights and let me say, pictures truly do not do this place justice. Although it says studio, it really felt more like a one bedroom. The layout was AWESOME!! Situated right at Backyards beach, the whole place feels very private and separated from the rest of the North Shore circus. That said, beware that if its winter time and the waves are HUGE, this house serves as a launch ramp for many of jet skis used to tow surfers into the nearby outer reefs... So expect to be awakened by the sounds of jet skis firing and surfboards getting waxed well before grey light.
We were happy to get around on the two beach cruisers provided by Mike. Teds bakery was just down the street and Foodland just a little further if you need any groceries. The studio came equipped with ample cook ware, however, a better hot plate and larger pan would have certainly been appreciated. My only real critique about the place were the blinds. They were completely see through from the outside looking in at night... Which could made for a few awkward moments. Additionally, the cable to the TV did not work. Not that we were going to watch much TV anyways.
All in all, great little place, but for $250/night, just a couple little extras would have made a big difference! 4 stars.
Superb location with walking (or paddling distance to some great surf beaches). Great unit and a great way to chill out or get amongst the awesome activities that the north shore offers.
Also comfy bed :)
Highly recommend and can't wait to return one day
Apologies for my delayed review! We stayed at this lovely studio for 4 nights in 2013 for a quick birthday getaway! It could not have been a better location right on the BEACH! The grounds are lovely, with a fabulous herb garden & plenty of yard space! Had a great time hanging out with Mike's girlfriend & their dog Mana at the beach & around the house! We rode bike's, ate at Ted's Bakery & had an overall amazing few days! This place is a gem & I cannot wait to come back this year for another stay! Maholo!
Very private beach 25 steps from your front door,
