About W. Lela

We live on Oahu, so we are able to meet the needs of our guests. Moved to Hawaii ten years ago, and never looked back.

I can help recommend many places to see and things to do in Oahu. Aloha ! ~

W. Lela purchased this house in 2007

Why W. Lela chose Haleiwa

We are avid surfers & our family loves everything about the islands !

What makes this house unique

Home is on a large lot (over 24,000 sq ft) at End of a private road. This ensures that you hear no road noise, and it offers lots of privacy.

Very secure location, and best part is that we are 5 minutes to Haleiwa Town, 5 minutes to Waimea Bay and Waimea Valley.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What an incredibly beautiful location this is! The front door opens right to the ocean, and waking up to this is amazing. The host was very good with communication. Use of the snorkel gear and boogie boards was very nice. I will say that the condition kitchenette wasn't the best I've seen, but the location and amenities definitely made up for this.

We would happily stay here again!

Adorable surf studio in FANTASTIC location!

  • 5 of 5

We live on the mainland, but Hawaii is our "second home." We usually stay with family when visiting the islands, but this time we wanted to stay in Haleiwa, our favorite place on Oahu. This studio really surpassed our expectations and was worth every penny of the (VERY moderate-for-its-superb-location) price! The unit is separate from the main building, totally private, and literally right on the ocean on Oahu's North Shore. We were able to go for early walks on the beach every morning and fall asleep to the sounds of the ocean every night - what more could you ask for?

The studio is actually quite sizeable and easily would accommodate two or three guests comfortably. There is a nice living area in addition to the bedroom. Is it Turtle Bay? No, but who wants that anyway? And for this location, you cannot beat the price. Believe me, I've looked! Staying here, we felt like locals, not tourists holed up in high rise. The owners kept in contact and were very responsive, kind, and helpful. I wholeheartedly recommend to anyone who loves the North Shore and wants to experience real Hawaii. We will certainly be renting again.

The property is just as depicted - right on the beach and very private!

  • 5 of 5

This property was exactly what I was hoping for! Quiet with nothing between the lanai and the beach that is a few yards away. In December the waves are very intense so swimming/boogie boarding was beyond our swimming skills. We watched surfers each day.

The bed is very comfortable - we slept GREAT! Everything was clean and we had all that we needed to make a few very simple meals vs eating out all the time.

Leland was a kind host. We would recommend this place if you are looking for a serine, quiet getaway.

Converted garage. Outstanding location

  • 2 of 5

After adjusting to the initial shock of just how rustic our "cottage" was my wife and I settled in to a decent 2 weeks. While we had planned on utilizing the grill it was pretty weather worn and we thought better of it. In the shared kitchen area the only thing we used the entire time was the refrigerator and the blender. Considering we had planned to cut some costs by preparing a couple of meals that didn't work out and we ended up adding cost by having every meal out. We did try to have dinner sent in on our anniversary only to be told the day of that the owner had planned a family and friend get together and would be there most of the day. They offered us to stay for the day and being good sports we thought we would try. It became evident the younger people were very comfortable just moving right into our space and we found it necessary to leave. This was unfortunate as instead of enjoying a relaxing day at the beach for our anniversary we were forced into holiday traffic and a crowded restaurant. They initially offered a voucher for our inconvenience but when we decided to try to stick it out the offer went away so we were left to our own. We were also unfortunate enough to have chain smokers stay in the adjacent upstairs rental and endured that for several days. So a good portion of your stay depends on the other renters on the property and there are 4 seperate rentals all on the same property. The beach is beautiful and was by far the highlight of the stay. It is quiet and offers the very best of Hawaii right out your back door. So as long as you are prepared to compromise on the accommodations the beach will be everything you wish for.

Owner's Response: Hi Charles, the offer still stands for the voucher to cover your dinner, we are very sorry that you were affected by the BBQ event held on memorial day. As for the grill, we take these comments seriously and have already purchases a replacement grill from Lowe's. The kitchenette space is functional, it's not very large but there is a full size Fridge, microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker, blender, sink, all dish-ware included. It's not meant to be a full kitchen, but most guests find it very convenient to have access to these items during their stay. We do not have four rentals on the property, there is the main Beach House which is the primary structure on our lot, and the detached Studio which you rented. Our goal is to offer a highly satisfactory experience to all our guests, should you return I will be happy to offer a free Night stay. Thank You and Aloha ~

Location, Location! Awesome surf break views.

  • 5 of 5

This little apartment it literally a quickly finished out garage, but let me tell you, for the price and the amazing location, it's perfect. You wake up every morning looking at the rightover and leftover surf breaks and have your own large private patio for meals and just hanging out.

Owner is extremely nice and knowledgeable about the area. Would definitely come stay here again!

Breathtaking Views!

  • 4 of 5

This property is on the most breathtaking piece of land. It's quiet and secluded. There are 2 other rentals on the property. However, you remain private. Unless you want to interact with the other guests, there is no need to. One caveat - it is more shabby than chic. This is not luxury living. While you're not exactly roughing it, the room itself is clean and comfortable, I wouldn't exactly call the "kitchen" a "kitchen". It has a full size refrigerator, microwave, hotplate, coffee pot, crockpot, blender and grill - All in the garage part of the "unit". However, with a little imagination and ingenuity we were able to cook what we wanted. It was an adventure. All in all, we had one of the best vacations ever in one of the most beautiful spots on the planet. The owners are incredibly nice and accommodating and went out of their way to assure that our stay was all we wanted it to be. We highly recommend this property to all couples! ~ Ronald and Dawn Willard
