"I searched for four months on VRBO for a home on the beach in the North Shore for spring break. There were 6 of us total (70-year old mom, three teen girls, myself and my husband). I read the reviews on this home and looked carefully at the pictures, considered the price and after MUCH research and consideration, I ended up booking this particular home. Upon arriving home last night after 7 days at this home I can say WITHOUT A DOUBT, this home was THE BEST CHOICE for our vacation on the North Shore!! It was our very first time on the North Shore so I was flying blind in terms of what Haleiwa was like, what food trucks were like, sharks cove etc etc. Here is what I will tell you right off the bat- this home is in an IDEAL LOCATION. It is a short (but beautiful!) 15 minute ride into the most CHARMING AND BEAUTIFUL little town of Haleiwa where you can shop and dine and eat shave ice (Matsumoto's!) and feast on 26-oz Prime Rib at Haleiwa Joes on the bay. You can eat at Bo's, Thai places, New York Spaghetti and Pizza Place, Bonzai Sushi and much more!! But that's if you want to drive into town....if you want to hang out closer to the house then take a five minute drive to the food trucks (right across the street from Sharks Cove).... THEY ARE THE BOMB!!!!!! They are soooo beautifully set up! They have cafe lights and picnic tables under white tents and fake green grass and music playing and even a big screen set up playing movies and videos of local surfers on the island catching waves right on the beach your home is on!!! FABULOUS!!!!!!! Now the home itself: first of all the pictures don't do it justice. It is beautiful!!!! There are four bedrooms and EACH BEDROOM has its OWN AIR CONDITIONING UNIT!!!! THIS MADE FOR THE MOST COMFORTABLE SLEEP FOR ALL OF US!!! The beds are also VERY comfortable!!! The furniture is in great shape and also very comfy for all 6 of us to hang out on and watch tv! Both TV's are new flat screens and the wifi in the house is fast!! You can NOT beat being on the beach. Although the waves were still too strong for us to swim in the ocean right outside the house, that didn't adversely impact our enjoyment of being on the beach and being down there EVERY DAY watching the local surfers do their thing! Just so you know, the water heater is small so take turns with showers and the ocean side sliding doors on the upper deck don't slide well due to the salt air corroding the metal. These were minor things that did not matter to us in the least"
