About Kiley

While we grew up on opposite sides of the country, we met and fell in love on the north shore. This property gives us everything we look for, a quiet slice tropical paradise just steps away from any adventure we may want. Whether we are enjoying fresh smoothies made from our papaya grove or cocktails made from our calamansi tree, life is as good as it gets on the North Shore.

What makes this studio unique

Falling asleep to the sounds of the ocean and waking up to the birds chirping and the scent of jasmine in the air are just a few of our favorite aspects of our slice of tropical paradise. Walking thru our jungle like backyard you will discover all sorts of native plants from an assortment hibiscus and ginger to lilikoi and bromiliads. You will also find some of our fun masks collected from our travels growing into the banyan trees.

Guestbook comments from the owner

As I searched VRBO, I felt unsure about exactly where to stay on the North Shore. However, the owners (Kiley & John) were prompt and responsive to my questions about their VRBO rental. (That was my first good sign.) Their ad said they were close to the beach, but booking online makes it kind of hard to know exactly how close "close" is. So I looked it up on Google Maps which proved it. (Second good sign.)

When I read that beach cruisers (bikes), paddleboards, boogie boards, snorkel gear, etc. are included (third good sign), I booked my weekend right away! At that point, it didn't matter much to me what the place looked like inside or outside; what mattered was that everything I was interested in doing would be provided.

For me (a Realtor), the photos at the time didn't portray how bright, sunny and charming this downstairs studio cottage is. But again, that didn't matter because I saw value in having all things beach included, and my professional eye was able to piece together the layout of the home.

I arrived and quickly noticed Kiley's touches of comfort. I was greeted by a letter with the house rules (quiet hours 9 pm - 8 am was my favorite one as they live in a quiet cul-de-sac); there were also cookies, nuts & coffee, clean linens and plenty of towels (bath & beach), and pillows & blankets.

The bathroom has a clean bathtub/shower which I thought would be good for parents traveling with children. However, it IS a studio style home (condo in my view) with an open concept floorplan, so that's something to bear in mind if you desire a private bedroom away from the kids.

There are a couple of things that (outside quiet hours) were audible: next door neighbors having band practice during the day on Sunday and footsteps from the visiting couple upstairs. Neither annoyed me personally because I was so happy about all the good things that this place had to offer. Plus, I was so happy to be in Hawaii.

Positive notables: A/C and a ceiling fan inside, the patio/lanai with a table & chairs, parking in their driveway, being 300 or so footsteps to the sand, clean and lovely inside and out, nice neighborhood with friendly neighbors, comfortable queen size bed, iPod dock/stereo, spacious closet, and lots of natural light from several windows.

I am looking forward to my next visit to Waimea/Haleiwa/North Shore and I will definitely call Kiley & John again to stay in their sunny and comfy rental!

Aloha & Mahalo!

The location was awesome. Walking / biking distance from Waimea to Pipeline.

The grocery store (Foodland) is only a 5 minute walk for all your needs.

great stay in local neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We loved the neighborhood location. Great, clean studio apartment with necessary amenities as well as some extras! A very short walk from 3 beautiful beaches! We enjoyed paddling with the turtles at Three Tables, snorkeling at Sharks Cove, and relaxing on the nearly-private, smaller side of Waimea Bay. The August air was very hot, but the water was a perfect 80 degrees and lake-like calm. And Kiley was a fabulous host.

Awesome rental! Loved our stay in this perfect little studio!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay on the north shore in this awesome little studio! Perfect location as you're less than a 5 minute walk to the closest beach. Having access to the paddle boards, beach chairs, snorkel gear, pedal bikes and boogey boards was a very nice feature and were used often. Also, the food trucks and foodland were within a 5 minute walk as well which was super convenient! Kiley was awesome and super accommodating! Made everything really easy, from checking into the studio, clean up and checking out. Loved our stay here and would recommend it anyone staying on the north shore!

Within walking distance of the beach, the grocery store, and several delicious food options.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for our first trip to Hawaii, and we were very satisfied with our choice! Kiley and John were very accommodating and have really thought of everything you might need while visiting. We were glad we were able to cook some of our own meals. It was really nice to be able to use the bikes, beach chairs and towels, boogie boards, and snorkel gear...we didn't have to worry about anything because they had it all available for us to use. The only thing I wish we would have had is a beach umbrella, or something to keep us shaded during the hot afternoon hours. Other than that, our stay was amazing and we would recommend this place to any couple visiting the North Shore!!

3-Tables and Waimea Bay
Car: recommended

This north shore getaway is tucked into the heart of Haleiwa around the corner from Waimea Bay, across the street from 3-Tables, and a block away from a local grocery store and coffee shop. The north shore bike path (located just across the street) provides a safe and fun avenue for you to walk, run, or bike to see many of the famous north shore surf breaks and beaches. Whether you are looking for a spot just steps away from some of the finest beaches in the world, underwater adventures, surfing, hiking, golf, horseback riding, or eating and shopping your way thru the days, Haleiwa has it all. Historic Haleiwa, just 5 miles down the road, is filled with restaurants and unique local shops. Enjoy feasting on Matsumoto Shave Ice while perusing Local Art Galleries and Boutiques. Save your appetites for diverse dining from Kua ‘Aina burger to Bonzai Sushi. Looking for an adventure? Haleiwa Marina offers Shark Diving with North Shore Shark Adventure Tours as well as Deep Sea Fishing. While we have snorkel gear and paddle boards at the house for your enjoyment, if you are feeling like a deeper adventure, Deep Ecology is a local PADI Dive Center that offers certification and boat tours and Surf and Sea offers surf and paddle board lessons to perfect your technique. Of course, Pipeline, Sunset Beach, Chuns, and Waimea Bay surf breaks are all just minutes away and offer some of the finest surfing in the world, they also have some of the best sea glass hunting! Dillingham Airfield is only 15 miles away and offers skydiving. Or if golf is calling you, Turtle Bay Golf Course is just 7-miles away that also offers a world class spa and exercise facility as well as several dining possibilities.
