  • Possibly the best (and most unique) place to stay on the North Shore

    "After a lot of searching for a vacation place, we stumbled across the Crown Jewel of Kawela Bay. It seemed almost too good to be true -- a big home on a private bay, decked out with everything we needed to have fun. So much so, in fact, that a few in our party breathed a sigh of relief when we showed up and it was real... and even better than we imagined. The house is beautiful and easily slept 11 adults + 3 children at our peak occupancy. Although the house itself is old and has lots of characters, its fitted with modern appliances and comforts that make it almost too easy to stay there. A far stretch from the camping we used to do! But the best part of this place is truly the location. Kawela Bay is very unique on the North Shore. While most beaches are getting pounded by waves during peak seasons, the beaches of Kawela Bay remain calm enough for snorkeling, standup paddle boarding, and kayaking. It's so calm that every morning you'll see some folks from Turtle Bay coming over to Kawela Bay, because their own bay is too rough for beginners. When want to leave the gentle waves of the beach and surf, though, you just paddle to the back left (or right, if you prefer) of the bay and can catch some very consistent, non-intimidating waves for beginners to sharpen their skills and intermediates to have some fun. Want something bigger? Just paddle out a bit more and you'll catch some great waves breaking on days with a bigger swell. I could go on for a long time about what we liked, but I'm going to stop. Instead, to provide some balance, I'll offer a few criticisms: (1) I had to do some work on my computer when I first got their, but it was hard to do because the view from inside the dining room is too distracting, (2) Sometimes a big wave would wake me up in the master bedroom, and (3) I ate too much because I love BBQ food and the BBQ was awesome."

  • Wonderful! Amazing! Astounding!

    "We visited Oahu last month, we got villa 205 for my Mother-in-law and Father-in-law. They absolutely loved it! We were able to get the room next to them which was also amazing. They were absolutely blown away by the place. It was perfect for them. They enjoyed getting up early every morning and enjoying their coffee on the deck with a gorgeous ocean view and the wonderful sounds of the ocean. My wife and I will be back and we will stay in this villa if it's available when we go. The room and the amenities were top notch. It is a great spot on the the north shore. Wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else! Chad Holderle"

  • 40th Anniversary

    "We sure enjoyed our time! This is a cute little bungalow, right on the ocean! Great views, lovely ocean breeze, very relaxing. Loved having morning coffee on the covered porch, watching the waves roll in. Glad it had air conditioning, because we sure needed it in June. House cooled off quickly upon returning from day excursions. We loved it! Everything was as described and we had no trouble with anything. Make sure you rent a car to get around the island."
