Fabulous Stay

  • 4 of 5

We spent 5 nights at Thomas' house! This simple, no-nonsense, home was the perfect location across from the beach (with many beach toys for our use). Clean, comfy, and basically stocked it suited our needs for the most part. Close to the PCC and other North Shore attractions we found that we didn't need to venture out much. As we were there in the winter months, we didn't need the AC but found the fans in the bedrooms sufficient. Use of the washer and dryer was a huge plus, as well as the ample towels (could use some hand towels and washcloths) and iron and ironing board.

Some attention could be given to the home. The doors to bathrooms stick terribly, the front windows don't open, the kitchen table is too small to accommodate a full house (and too high for littles), the minimal cookware is due to be replaced, and the fridge is rusting and has a difficult time closing.

As way of suggestions: The bed in the back room could use a foam topper and all the pillows are in dyer need of replacement. The couch could use a through cleaning. A clothes line in the side yard would cut down on dryer usage even if its just for towels, and a gate (similar to your neighbors) would make the property prime for letting young children out of the house to chase the chickens and play in the side yard.

As for the chickens and road noise, we appreciate the earlier reviews. We came prepared with a white noise machine and slept perfectly! Thomas was a gracious host, even accommodating some of our party that had to stay longer. We had a couple of communication hiccups, but he was very prompt on answering my texts. He even let us know when one of the local monk seal was in town, as well as great followup after we left.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hale Wila, and the North Shore. For the price, and location, this property delivered.

Loved being able to be with my family outside in the patio area and enjoying the beach across the street. Very accessible to places yet peaceful and quiet for our family. Thank you.

Quaint home with feel of being native

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. This was our second visit to Hawaii with our first staying in Honolulu. For this trip we wanted to feel more like locals and not tourists. The home is simple, and quaint. There's a beach in front of you (across the street) and a mountain behind. The neighbors were quiet. This is the "country" so we had chickens and roosters bustling around. Because there is no central AC, we kept the windows open so you do hear the roosters start up very early from 2 of the bedrooms. There is an AC window unit in the living room making it very pleasant to watch tv. There were several beach chairs on hand and lots of towels. Loved having a full size washer and dryer available. Again, we wanted to feel like locals, where living is simple and this was the perfect place for it.

Comfortable house and SO close to the beach!!

  • 4 of 5

Our family had such a great time staying in this rental. It was clean and comfortable, and we had plenty of room to relax. The ocean was just across the street and so convenient, and we spent a lot of time there. The kitchen was nice and roomy and clean - could have used a little bigger table, but we made it work. The bedrooms were comfortable and the ceiling fans in each one helped so very much, since we happened to be there when the weather was a little bit on the hot side. The little AC unit in the front room helped to keep the front part of the house comfortable and to cool the house down at night, but another one in the back of the house would have been very helpful since the bedrooms were quite warm by evening time. We enjoyed very much being up on the north shore which is so beautiful and out of the busyness of the city. We were close to grocery stores and lots of places to eat good food. We had a great time snorkeling in Sharks Cove which was about 30 minutes away and spending a day at the Polynesian Cultural Center which was very close. Overall, we just really had a great time and I would stay there again, and also recommend it to my friends.

we loved Hale Wila

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (group of 8 and a baby) stayed at Thomas' amazing Will house from Feb 26 to Mar 2.

First off, the property itself. The house was amaxing! Clean, convenient, and very large. Every room is equipped with a ceiling fan which helped us stay cool when I got humid. The kitchen was stocked with enough plates, glasses and silverware for my entire family (and then some). Basic pots, pans and seasonings made cooking effortless. There are 2 houses on the property which i thought would have been a drag. While we were there, a family was in the front house yet we had complete privacy. Not a drag at all! Between the houses is a carport and a charcoal bbq. There is also a picnic table, which was nice for a Hawaiian evening bbq. The house has a "jungle" in the back that was absolutely beautiful. Across the street is a serine sandy beach. Calm waves, powdery sand and palm trees are literally 75 steps away. Grocery store is a very short drive or even walking distance, which was nice.

Now to address the negative comments that was previously written about this property... NO, there were no worms in the house. There was NO damp smell. YES, you are by a major highway...but anywhere you go that is in close proximity to the beach is going to be off the highway. Noise wasn't out of the ordinary from passing vehicles. YES, there are roosters...a lot of them. If you have never been to Oahu, please know that chickens and roosters are wild and will be everywhere you turn.

Thomas was always available for questions prior and during our stay. All in all, I would suggest to anyone I know that is visiting Oahu to stay at Hale Wila.

I hope you will keep me in mind when you and your family make it back to our beautiful island and beaches. Mahalo Nui Loa! (Thank you very much!) Thomas
