Welcome to paradise! For your Hawaii vacation, you need a comfortable home. All bedding is brand new Sealy posturpedic pillow top.A/C has been installed in each room. Let others battle the crowds at the overpriced hotels while you relax at a beautifully remodeled,ecologically friendly duplex. With solar panels, solar water heater, bamboo and tile floors, and recycling opportunities, you will minimize your carbon footprint while staying in Hawaii.
It is just about a one-minute walk to the quiet beach park ideal for families with small children. Snorkel in the summer and early fall, or surf the big waves in the winter and early spring. Soaring, whale watching, kite surfing and much more are available on the North Shore of Oahu.
I look forward to meeting you and sharing my little piece of paradise. Please feel free to call or e-mail me if you have any questions. My family have been owner/operators of several guest houses, small hotels and motels since 1945.
I am a medical professional by day and an avid surfer and triathlete in my free time. My family has owned and operated hotels, motels and bed and breakfast properties since 1945. My summer job growing up was always within the family business, So it is in my nature to provide clean, comfortable accommodations for tourists in this beautiful place I get to call home.
It is away from most of the crowds on the north shore but close enough to check the surf by car every morning at the Banzai pipeline. The coastline out front is magnificient and the space is clean, bright, cheery and very affordable.
Washer and dryer onsite, plenty of parking, feel like you are living in a local neighborhood. Way better than joining all of the tourists at Turtle bay or on tour buses from Waikiki
This property is not legal to rent for less than 30 days. Please contact me with questions.

Property is just as described! Clean, functional, everything worked perfectly. Location is very good. Beach is two blocks away and when we went on February there were plenty of turtles, we snorkeled..... it was really nice! No need of air conditioner at all on Feb. There is a little park just beside the beach so kids spent some time there too. Beach is nice and pretty quiet for North shore, our kids (from 6,7,9 and 11) enjoyed a lot!!!
Wayne was always available and helpful. He has a folder in the property with plenty of useful information. Thanks Wayne!
Best area of the house is the lanai, we had breakfast and dinner there everyday!. BBQ worked perfectly and we enjoyed the nice breeze at night.
Property has a nice garden with a hose outside, great to get rid of the sand before going inside the house.
We'd recommend this property and would go there again.
Thank you, Wayne, for a great stay in your place.
For everyone else considering a place to stay on Oahu, this is our experience from this property.
It's on the second floor, as are almost all building in the area. Ground floors are mostly reserved for heavy rains or storm flooding, I assume. So just be prepared to walk up and down a few stairs when you enter or leave this property.
The building is a little older but it's in quite good condition, with new appliances, flooring, paint, etc.
All the towels, soap, shampoo, dishes, towels and other things we needed were all available. Thank you! Even some beach chairs, umbrellas and other items have been left by previous visitors, so they were also available downstairs. Very much appreciated!
Parking was great. Off street, and partly shaded.
The yard was super, as we collected limes off the grass daily to go into our salads and drinks. Wayne hadn't mentioned anything about this, but we assumed it would be alright, as the tree was full and the limes were laying all over the grass from being over-ripe. Hope you don't mind.
The beds are comfortable but very, very soft. I prefer a firmer bed so it took a little time to get comfortable, but that's my preference.
Perhaps the best part of the property is the large deck with table, chairs and BBQ. We spent almost every morning, as well as many afternoons and evenings on the deck. My advice: when looking for a property to rent, pay attention to the patio or deck that you'll be getting! Some properties have small or poor patios and, even though the rest of the property might look great, you're going to want to spend lots of time outdoors.
I think this is possible one of the best little neighbourhoods anywhere on the north shore for swimming, as there is a reef a fair way out in the ocean and the water is quite a bit calmer when it hits the sandy beach. Perfect for lots of relaxed swimming or with children. We travelled around the island and many of the other beaches were rocky or had huge, rough waves right to the beach, so we felt really lucky that our beach was so nice. There is a beach-front park a 2-minute walk from the house, so it was just perfect.
The whole North shore was also nice. We slowly found out where to buy local fruit, bread, pastries and so on. Yes, the island is expensive compared to the mainland, but local fruit is quite a bit cheaper to help compensate.
I'd definitely recommend this property
Would like to have had access to more towels sinc no washers but Wayne offers to give more just didn't want to bother him
Good communication was provided by the owner who went to above and beyond to provide a great experience. We ate out in Halewia ( 5 minute drive ) at the Mexican Restaurant ,only one , and also at the food vans , which afforded lots of choices. Fortunately we arrived on the first day of a huge swell and were able to stand on the beach and see Pipeline surfed in all it's glory. Renting bicycles was a fun way to explore the local area along with the must drive along the North Shore. I would highly recommend this property , my only dislike was having to leave.
We enjoyed our stay at this property with our 2 toddlers and my parents. The unit was exactly as described, clean, well kept, had a nice updated kitchen & outdoor grill, and was nicer than we had expected for the price. We were there in August when it was super hot so sometimes it took the A/C awhile to cool down the unit but from what I hear, many locals don't even use/have A/C. It's hard to hear the TV over the A/C but nothing you can't live with. Wayne was an excellent host and promptly fixed a light and the wifi when it wasn't working. Great location close to the beach (2 short blocks away) and we really loved staying on the North Shore. There were so many great places to eat in the nearby town of Haleiwa including the famous Matsumoto Shave Ice. The only downside was having to share the washer/dryer. Since it is a duplex, there is a unit next door that was also being rented out and we weren't able to do laundry when we were expecting to as they got to the machines first. There are a lot of beach toys/equipment to borrow (and we left 2 umbrellas as well :)) as well as condiments in the kitchen, and good shampoo/conditioner in the bathroom. Overall, would highly recommend staying here!
We loved staying here! The AC units are noisy, but that's our only complaint! We loved being just a quick walk away from a gorgeous beach. The unit was stocked with many amenities! Shampoo, soap, towels, fridge had plenty of condiments, well stocked kitchen. The beds were comfy. We'd stay here again.
