The minute you enter the property taking in the incredible view that is now your backyard, you breathe in the salt air and instantly you decompress. You are now on vacation. Nothing will compare to your first morning when you step outside to watch the sun rise. It is a memory that will last forever.

On your own piece of paradise, you are 25 feet from the ocean, a sandy beach with easy access for swimming, snorkeling, fishing or walking on the beach.

Aloha 2017

  • 4 of 5

The home was beautiful, this was our second time staying at Good Vibrations. We were sad that Mother nature brought rising water & took the beach from the back yard with her. There are human size sand bags protection the property - During our stay more bags were brought in to protect the property - Marie was very kind in compensating us for the loss of the back yard (our serenity spot) for a few days while work was preformed. It is very difficult to get to the beach & - the beach access trail 2 homes down has the same issue ( but very rocky - be careful.).The weather was amazing- crossed a few more things off my bucket list visiting The Valley of the temples, Margarita at Cholos' in Haleiwa, Finding glass floats on the shore in Hauula down from the house- We picked up a lot of trash on the beach -high surf. Adding the air conditioning in the bedroom was a bonus- Thank you for sharing your piece of Paradise with us. May 2-11-2017.

Comfortable home right on the beach, but difficult to get down to the water

  • 4 of 5

The property was clean and well cared for. It was nicely outfitted with soaps which was really handy for doing laundry and bathing the kids. AC units kept the bedrooms quite comfortable. The main portion of the home is too hot to enjoy during the day, but we were out and about anyway so this didn't matter. As other reviews mentioned, the house is right on the road. The noise didn't bother us, but we were in constant fear our kids would get out on the road so we kept the gate closed (as the owner recommends anyway). One item of note we didn't read in other reviews is that there are erosion control bags at the beachfront for this property. We were able to get down to the water and walk along the beach, but these erosion bags made that difficult. We sat out on the lawn every evening though and these bags are easy to look past at the amazing views.

Celebration on the beach

  • 5 of 5

After spending several days in Waikiki, this place was the rest and relaxation everyone needed. Seriously right on the beach. See the sun rise everyday and the stars everynight. Everyone including the kids had a fantastic time. The Northshore and East shore rock!!! This home is perfectly situated.

Great getaway on the North Shore

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Cozy at Punaluu. Marie was kind enough to stock the refrigerator since we were coming in late on Christmas day. We found the house easily and had all the necessary information to get in. The house is beautiful and the kitchen is stocked with everything you need to make a meal. The living room is comfortable and overlooks the ocean. Marie provides soap, shampoo and conditioner in the bathroom so you don't need to worry about bringing those items and there were an abundance of beach towels to use during your stay. It was great to have access to a washer and dryer to make for easier/lighter packing. We would love to stay again and would recommend this property to anyone wanting to stay away from the all the tourists around Waikiki. Marie is very responsive if you have any questions.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect location for our vacation! We have triplet 13 yr olds and a 10 yr old. Even though there is wifi and a tv we never used them! We had the beach to ourselves and played dominos nonstop! We wanted away from the commercial side of the island and loved every minute! The amenities at the house are top notch. We wanted for nothing! Marie was gracious and wonderful! When I return I will not hesitate to use her property again!

A true hidden gem!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 6 adults had such an amazing experience at the Good Vibrations Beachfront house. The location itself is wonderful - it's a short drive to food trucks and the Polynesian Cultural Center, an easy 1 hour drive to Honolulu, and most importantly it's right on the beach! Every morning we woke up couldn't believe how lucky we were to be waking up in such a serene and beautiful place.

We were pleasantly surprised to find the house is amply stocked with almost everything you could possibly need: beach towels, cooking utensils, shampoo and conditioner, an iPod dock, boat shoes, etc. It truly made the house feel like a home.

Marie's communication was wonderful. She communicated well with us during booking, before arrival, and during our stay.

Some reviewers have complained about road noise. I understand this complaint because we could hear road noise (especially within the two bedrooms facing the road, which are the rooms with full size beds), but it really wasn't a problem for us. In our group of 6, no one had any issues with the road noise. You can definitely hear the cars on the road at night, but that didn't keep us from enjoying our stay. I'd say that if you think it will be an issue for you then you might want to take it into consideration, but it wasn't an issue at all for us.

We absolutely loved our stay here, and we kept saying that we felt like we found a hidden gem. It's an incredible property, and we definitely hope to return again. In fact, we are talking about visiting Oahu again (versus another island) just so we can stay at this beach house again! That's how amazing it is!

Thank you, Marie, for sharing this beautiful home with us!
