Sports & Adventure Activities
Comfortable and good location
Overall, my family had a pleasant stay here. There was plenty of room and the location was excellent. The rooms have a cozy feel and the wrap-around porch would have been lovely had it not rained every day! Additionally, I was pleased that I didn't find the infestation of roaches that my other rental in Waikiki had! We were also pleased to have the washer and dryer in the unit. The couches were very comfortable and we were glad to have many guide books about Oahu on hand. On the negative side: the place could use a little maintenance: many light bulbs were burnt out, the kitchen faucet was not secured to the sink, the hairdryer broke (replaced by another old but functional one) and there was quite a bit of items in the house that might be useful to some renters, but made the house seem a little junky (cleaning supplies, open bottles of water in the refrigerator, etc.) Also many of the towels provided were rather stained. In addition, the information packet given to use needed to be updated. Some renters may be disturbed at night on occasion by dogs barking in the neighborhood (the barking didn't usually last more than a minute, however).
Great beachy location
Couldn't beat the location, 2 houses off the beach, walking distance to Ted's and all the other great parts of the 7 Mile Miracle. We were only there for 3 nights but were able to soak in the best of the North Shore and even watch the Super Bowl! John was downstairs and is extremely helpful to anything you may need. Seems that there may be a little ant/bug problem but nothing a little spray cannot fix. Mahalo!
Hawaiian feel and central location to surfing
Adequately suited for a family and friends situated close to surfing and shops. Bathroom and ensuite is very convenient and the supply of ample beach equipment enhances the stay.
Great location for a local experience
Two couples shared the house and were pleased with our choice. The king beds and bedding are very comfortable and we slept well. The couch is getting worn and not that comfortable. There were plenty of supplies and kitchen items, but we had to search quite a bit. The house was clean, but could use some kitchen and closet organization so it's easier to see what's available to use. Only one washcloth available. We were there when the false missle alert was received. Manager John was all about making sure we were safe and taking cover. We really appreciated his concern for our safety! We enjoyed the neighborhood, which was pretty quiet most of the time, and family-oriented. And we appreciated the short walk to the beach at either end of the block. Thanks for your hospitality and Aloha!
Great place to stay. HSH is clean, spacious, comfortable and has everything you need for your stay!
We so enjoyed our stay at HSH! The kitchen, dining and living area is large and spacious with adjacent lanai great for morning coffee/juice. We had everything we needed to cook or grill! Very comfortable queen size beds (slept like a baby!) in both bedrooms with 2 bathrooms made it great for us and another couple! Location was great for us with quick walk access to beach for beautiful sunsets! Short trips to Sunset Beach, Waimea Bay, Foodland, Teds Bakery were our faves! Close to Haleiwa town and food trucks but also far enough up road to take Kamehameha Highway around to Kailua and Lanikai! Two of our other favorite beaches. Rental is equipped with beach chairs, umbrella, towels, boogie boards and snorkel gear for trips to the beach. Alexis and John, who manage the property and live downstairs, were so nice and available in person or by phone anytime. Thank Aris, for a wonderful place to stay in our favorite travel destination!
Thank you, Eileen. So glad you enjoyed your stay. Just one small point: the beds are both king size, not queens. Thanks for the glowing review.
Away from It All
We had a short stay but it was perfect, house had everything we needed and everything elese was close by. The AC was nice to have in the summer. We will stay at this Property again.
