About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

Aloha and Welcome!!! Come be our guests.

Our place is nice. big and roomy and super comfortable This rental is the whole upstairs portion of our home.

We live downstairs. Private entrance into the upstairs portion of our two story house. shared washer and dryer. Squeaky clean, new tile floor. Large carpeted bedrooms. TV with CD/DVD. Three big bamboo king sized beds. Teak-wood tables, chairs, dressers and desks. covered wrap around lanai. We don't have AC but I would say that more than 95% of the homes here in Hawaii don't have AC either. The main places that do have AC are hotel rooms and condos, rentals that aren't well ventilated. We normally have cool trade winds and in the house we have plenty of ceiling fans and stand alone room fans .

Unbeatable location... one block to the 'Backyard Beach' (surfing/windsurfing) and 2 blocks to the 'Mother's Beach' (swimming or surfing, great for kids) a (150 yards). Across the street to breakfast at Ted's Bakery. Bike path starts here. Perfect for biking or jogging. Super safe for Kids. Completely gated property. This neighborhood is very quiet and family oriented so in order to be respectful of our neighbors, guests need to be quiet after 10 pm. If you're into partying and having late dinner parties and such or you are on the college Spring Break program, this place is not for you. We have room for one car to park inside our lockable gate but additional vehicles will need to park outside on the street. small lotus bowl/fishpond , Bali style gazebo in the backyard...... 5 minutes drive North is Turtle Bay Hilton Resort. World famous Sunset Beach is 30 second drive away or within walking distance. Banzai Pipeline is about 2 minutes drive away. 5 minutes drive south is Waimea Bay which is great for swimming, snorkeling and sometimes whale and dolphin watching. (Even sea turtles too.)

North Shore is the heaven for surfers and families alike. The locals also call it the '7 Mile Miracle'. Usually surf is big in the winter time and calm in the summer time.

To experience the true North Shore spirit, Sunset Beach is the right destination. For surfers and non surfers, you'll feel right at home. Mother's Beach just a block away and is the North Shore's best kept secret with it's tree shaded picnic tables and soft sand bottom swimming area. Backyards is another 'Secret Spot' tucked away from the regular tourist traffic so that you'll always find an uncrowded perfect surf/swimming location.

I personally guarantee you'll love our place. Mahalo!!!

Super sweet spot

  • 5 of 5

Very spacious in a fantastic location. You may not have ocean views but the beach is a 2min walk and you have nice views to the mountains. Famous breaks like Sunsets and Pipeline are a short walk away. Secure parking and a great neighbourhood, every one is incredibly friendly. Bill and family are super nice people. Would absolutely recommend this as a great stay.

Stayed 10 nights at this wonderful home, my family enjoyed the location, beaches were 3-5 min walk down the street. Teds Bakery was around the corner from the home. My Kids and grandkids rode the bikes to the beach. The home had everything we needed. I know we will stay here again. Bill and Reba were helpful and kind. Thank you, Mahalo

Beach time with daughters!

  • 5 of 5

Tonight is the last night of our 12 night stay here, and we have had a wonderful time!

Bill and Reba are gracious and friendly hosts. It is a great location, less than a 3 minute walk to the beach, where we watched beautiful sunsets. Exceptionally clean and comfortable, we look forward to our return. Mahalo!

Fabulous Christmas Vacation - Great Home!

  • 5 of 5

This home has it all! Our family of 5 adults rented for 10 days beginning on Christmas Day. The location is perfect - a short 3 minute walk to Ted's Bakery, bike trail, and private beach. Home was very clean and spacious. Very nicely appointed kitchen. A wonderful complement to the home and location were the outdoor "accessories" that made our stay so relaxing and fun - 4 bicycles, boogy boards, snorkel equipment, outdoor grill, outdoor shower, etc. No air-conditioning but there are ceiling fans in every room and the upstairs location provided ample cross breezes for comfortable living. The owners live on the premise and are very nice and accessible should one need anything at all. We will definitely stay here again.

New extended family..great place also

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic home to stay in!! There was plenty of room for 6 with room to spare. Everything was clean, accessible, well stocked, and lots of chairs, umbrellas etc provided for your use. The breezes were amazing and the evenings comfortable. The kitchen was great, it had everything we needed. The beds were comfortable and the master shower was great. Bill and Reba, and their kids make you feel like family..and because of that we have made a heart connection with this family that I hope others will get to experience. I can honestly say that because of that connection with this family, we are finally going to buy and build on Oahu!! Thank you Bill and Reba for the fantastic vacation you helped us to have!!! Can't wait to stay again while we build our house!!!
