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!

Amazing location and very private.

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable, spacious, cozy, clean and 3 minute walk to the beach. Quite street with friendly neighbors and private back yard backing up to the mountain slope. House had everything we could ask for and we felt comfortable, secluded and connected to everything at the same time. Perfect spot to get away from tourist crowds and enjoy the real Hawaii. accommodating and thoughtful host made it all even better. Coming back next year.

  • 5 of 5

Close to Foodland and awesome food trucks, walk to Three Tables to snorkel and enjoy sunsets. Outdoor shower on patio was great. Place was clean and comfortable. Owners were quiet and gave us our space which we liked. Close to beaches for turtles and snorkeling for me. Loved it and would return. No negatives from me or my wife. Mahalo!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

The space was exactly what we expected. They even had an updated couch from the pictures. The bed was super comfy, kitchen was complete with dishes, we had bikes, beach gear, etc. I would have liked a few more hooks in the bathroom, but they provided a drying rack outside, which worked good too.

The location is on a quiet cul du sac, but a short walk to the beach, foodland and food trucks. We loved the bikes! I would recommend this rental for sure!

very nice property, very nice neighborhood and very tranquil

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with the property. It is 2 short blocks to the beach. It is in a very nice neighborhood. Kiley is very accommodating. She is there if you need her but gives you complete privacy. Everything you need is there and only a few blocks from grocery store. Wish we could have stayed much longer. Mahalo

This is Aloha Living: North Shore Gem

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a quiet place close to the North Shore spots. We found it. This cozy, clean studio is situated in a lovely residential neighborhood within walking distance to wave & surfer watching, snorkeling, the bike path, and eats. Shark's Cove for snorkeling had me gasping and oohing underwater with all the underwater life! I ran everyday because I could--mist or shine. (The bike path also offers some shade on sunny days.) The owners made themselves available if we had questions, but they gave us our privacy, which is a plus! Also, we loved being able to do our own cooking after picking up items from Foodland; there are food trucks nearby too, if you want options. We were so grateful for bikes, snorkeling gear, beach chairs, paddle board access, etc., which gave us choices for activities without having to rent. We also walked to Waimea Bay and Valley easily. I find this studio, our hosts, and the neighborhood perfect. I would recommend this space for a duo looking to be out of the hustle and bustle of the city and for those looking to slow their pace down. Great neighborhood. A great space if you're looking to read/write and be outside. Mahalo, Kiley, for making our first stay on O'ahu & in Hawaii perfect!! I hope to be back sooner than later! Aloha!

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.
