I know the ins and outs of hospitality and food and beverage and guest services.

I like to think I know what the guests will want before they know they need it.

I hope you book with us and have a wonderful experience with us.

Donna purchased this house in 2004

What makes this house unique

Waimea Bay has some of the most beautiful beaches on the island of Oahu. It is great for snorkeling in the non-winter months. Jump rock is great fun for the brave. The water is so clear and beautiful. The beach is very large and most of the bay is a sand bottom. Waimea Bay has a peaceful country feel.

House History: the home was originally owned by the late Pro surfer Mark Foo.

Great

  • 5 of 5

Right from the driveway this property oozes Hawaii living.

The location is great, plenty of space inside and out.

Donna (owner) was great, helpful but not imposing. My family all had a great stay.

Thank you.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This home was the most perfect location centered on the north shore. Donna was super helpful and full of ideas for exploring the area. The house was comfortable and nice but lets be honest, nobody comes to Hawaii to sit inside. Loved the short little path that leads to overlooking waimea bay. The only complaint would be that we couldn't watch movies at night due to a slow internet, but with that being said it was actually a nice break from the good ole tv. We had a lovely time and most definitely would stay here again.

Owner's Response: Aloha and thank you so much for your 5 Star Review! You all were coming and going and seeing the wonderful island and all it has to offer. I'm glad I was of assistance in that. As for movies, we have cable so I'm really not too sure about. If you were watching on Netflix of something like that which requires internet, that is out of my control. We do provide up to date routers for our internet but again that is out of my control if something is going on, on their end. I apologise for any inconvenience. Do come back and stay with us again and bring the entire family!

Our home is built on a lava outcrop on the south side of Waimea Bay. Near by is an ancient Hawaiian Heiau. Waimea Valley is a very special place with a long history of a thriving Hawaiian community.

During summer months Waimea Bay beach is a peaceful ocean playground. Relaxing along the aqua blue water and sandy beach of Waimea Bay will be a treasured experience.

During the winter months Waimea Bay has some of the largest surfing waves on Earth. This break is where the famous invitation only Eddie Aikau surf contest is held. The first place purse is $55,000 which goes to the surfer who has the highest points. In order for the contest to be held Waimea Bay needs to be breaking at minimum of 20 feet.

Other Activities: Hunting for Sea shells.

Golf: The Turtle Bay Hilton 15 minutes north of our unit features a Arnold Palmer course. This course is located along a beauitful beach.
