A fun spot in a North Shore neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

We had a good time here in Oahu. The location is good and it's on a cul de sac so there's no through traffic. Nice deck out back to sit on and have coffee and a nice supply of beach stuff to use, the beach is close. We were here only three days but it was close to all the things we wanted to do.

Great vacation home on North Shore in Oahu

  • 5 of 5

This place was fantastic! Comfortable king size beds, spacious rooms, lanai on 3 sides of the house with access from each of the 2 bedrooms, BBQ, lots of skylights that provide tons of natural light, large kitchen very well equipped (even has a rice cooker & garlic press!), large dining room table, good sized living room, 2 bathrooms (1 is an ensuite), plenty of towels, washer & dryer & lots of toys. This was our first time visiting Oahu & we are so glad we decided to stay here. The North Shore is way more quiet, laid back & I would say authentic Hawaiian vs the bustling city of Waikiki. Easy walk to a couple of great beaches & Ted's bakery for some yummy goodies. From here it was an easy drive to some of the famous attractions such as Waimea Valley, Dole Pinapple Plantation, Polynesian Cultural Centre and many more. Watching the surfers at Sunset Beach in the crazy waves was a highlight as well. All four of us that stayed here loved this place. There are people that live downstairs but they were friendly. Mahalo Aris - you have a great place & we enjoyed it very much!🤙

Wonderful Week on the North Shore!

  • 5 of 5

My son and I stayed here for a week with a friend and her son. We loved the location to the beaches, the food and the market. The home comes well equipped! The owner did a great job of anticipating the needs of travelers and outfitted the place so that the only purchases needed was food to fill the fridge which already contained some basic condiments. We really enjoyed our stay here! It was peaceful and relaxing - just what we wanted. On our next visit to the North Shore, we will definitely want to rent this house again! Thanks, Aris, for sharing your home with us and for making our Hawaii vacation a very memorable one!

Beautiful, but privacy challenges

  • 3 of 5

This is a beautiful home in a wonderful location. It's an easy walk or bike ride to many attractions (beaches, surfing, Teds) and a short drive to many others. Unfortunately, it wasn't the right property for us and I wish I'd seen these details in a review before booking, so I'm providing them here for others. Both bathrooms have large windows in the showers. These are clear glass windows with no curtains or coverings of any kind. Both windows face a neighbors house which also has windows facing this home. So for both bathrooms, if you take a shower, you will be in full view of the neighbor. In one of the bathrooms, the same will be true when you are on the toilet. For many, this may not be an issue, but it was for us. Also, all of the doors into the home are sliding glass doors that can only be locked from the inside. One of those doors opens to a landing at the top of the stairs and there's a normal door with a normal lock at the bottom of the stairs, so this is the sliding glass door that's left unlocked when you leave. We didn't feel completely secure with only those sliding doors. (To be fair, it would take some work for someone to get in, but we still were slightly uncomfortable.) Many visitors will read this review and say we're old fogeys that need to relax and enjoy beautiful Hawaii and in some respects you are right. But if there are other travelers who may be old fogeys like us and who have concerns like us, I wanted to make sure this was reflected in one of the reviews here so that you would choose a different property and leave this one to those that will truly enjoy it for all that it has to offer.

Owner's Response: The bathroom windows are 18 inches by 24 inches, and they are 6 feet above the floor. Privacy is not an issue. The sliding glass doors have locks and are accessible only from the lanai. A deadbolt lock and a doorknob lock prevent intry to the stairway up to the lanai. Additionally, the house has motion detector spotlight outside along with video cameras. Security is not an issue. No other renter has ever raised these issues...because they are not real issues.

Why would you ever stay in a hotel???!!!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome home. Clean, up to date, very short walk to the beach. We loved our stay at this home. North shore has few options - expensive resort or super cool residence. We quit staying at hotels about10 years ago. This place was perfect for our family and the way we like to travel.
