If I could I would give more stars! Grazie Marie!

Perfect stay! Marie welcomed us with fresh fruit from her beautiful garden. We are so glad we chose this location, in the North Shore, super close to Sunset beach (so beautiful!) and Ted’s Bakery (so good!). We had a great time and Marie gave us also suggestions for local beaches to visit and places where to eat. The studio was perfect and clean, free parking always available in front of the house, great hospitality, a wonderful garden...we could not have asked for a better place to stay. Mahalo Marie, we will certainly be back!

If you are planning a trip to Oahu,HI. And wanting to stay at the North Shore I would highly recommend this property to anyone. It’s within walking distance to the famous Banzai Pipeline Beach and Ted’s Bakery. Also, it’s 20 minutes from the Historic Town Haleiwa. The Town Haleiwa stores and restaurants to offer you. When we arrived at the property Maria made us a fresh fruit plate. Also, she was very knowledgeable of beaches,Local restaurants, and site seeing’s.Maria made sure that we had everything that we needed.It was a great experience staying at her property. On our next trip back to the North Shore my wife and I are definitely going to stay at her property..

Wonderful!!! We loved every second of our vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for six nights (Sept 28-Oct 4). We could not have asked for a better place to stay! The rental is extremely clean and everything has been meticulously thought of for your comfort. It has a private entrance looking upon the back yard filled with fruit trees. It's very quiet with no street noise. We slept very well using the fans to keep it cool. No issue with not having AC whatsoever. The sheets on the bed were very soft and comfortable. The pillows were very comfortable. Nightstands on each side. There is a full sized fridge and a kitchenette that is loaded with anything you would possibly need! The bathroom is huge! Tons of towels and even shampoo/conditioner/ body wash included. The living area is very comfortable and spacious. There are beach towels, beach blanket, cooler, beach bags, boogie board, umbrella and beach chairs provided. Now for the hospitality!! Marie is an absolute delight! She greeted us when we arrived and invited us to join her and the other renters for dinner. It was a wonderful evening of laughter and good food. I learned about her many different fruit trees and was able to walk the property with her. She made us an amazing fruit platter that we enjoyed the next day for breakfast. Marie and Alec embrace the aloha spirit and make you feel like beloved family (they call it 'ohaha in Hawaiian- meaning family). We are so very thankful we found this rental. Made for an amazing vacation!!
