  • Beautiful location, awesome house, perfect getaway

    "From the moment we arrived we were in love with the house and location-it had everything we needed! There were 3 families that stayed here….6 adults and 5 children all under the age of four. We all fit comfortably. The kids loved playing in the backyard and the ocean wall was tall enough that we didn't have to worry about them falling off. However, we still made sure to watch closely so they didn't climb up but it wasn't a big concern as I had thought it might be. The house was well stocked and even had a highchair and portable crib. Also had lots of great games, snorkel gear, fishing pools, and binoculars! The only thing that would've been nice was to have some blackout curtains for the bedrooms. We couldn't swim directly in front of the house because there wasn't enough beach but the view was beautiful and we loved listening to the ocean! There was an awesome beach just a couple hundred yards down the road that we went to almost every day...evening time at this beach was magical! It was always quit and we saw lots of turtles, some stingrays, and even a seal. Haleiwa was only about a 10-15 minute drive from the house. We loved the Waialua Bakery there! You must go...they make all the food from scratch and grow most of the fruits and vegetables on their local family farm. Ice-cream sandwiches and smoothies are amazing, as well as,the sandwiches! Great prices too! We also rented some kayaks in Haleiwa from Tropical Rush to go up the river. I'd also recommend doing this during the evening as you're more likely to see turtles and the weather is cooler, afterwards they give you free shaved ice which is really yummy. (Don't waste your time standing in line for a shaved ice at Motsomotos) This trip was absolutely amazing and The Hawaii house was perfect for the quiet and relaxed trip we were hoping to have! Loved the beautiful location we'll be back for sure!"

  • Quiet condo with amazing view!

    "Peter's condo was perfect for our stay on Oahu. We really wanted to be away from the hustle and bustle of Honolulu, and staying at The Colony was just that! We really enjoyed our peaceful mornings and evenings on the lanai watching the sun rise and set. We spent a lot of time in Hale'iwa, only 10-15 minutes away, so our "base camp" was very close. The condo was very clean when we arrived and had everything that we needed. Thanks again Peter for an enjoyable stay!"

  • Great property, great location, "real Oahu"

    "We had a lovely time near the northwestern tip of Oahu. The area is convenient to everywhere on the island by vehicle (45 mins to 1 hr), with a relaxing drive through the agricultural part of the island, hitting only a little traffic on the way to Honolulu or elsewhere SW/SE. The ocean out the back door, beaches just down the road, mountains on the other side of the street, seeing sunrise/sunsets both from your backyard --it all made for an amazing stay. The property was in great shape, clean, as listed, and was plenty of room for our party of six. It was warm inside after coming back in the afternoons, but as soon as the oceanside doors were open, the house was instantly cool again. The kids even got a little cold at night, so heat isn't a problem, although the humidity takes a few days to get used to. Plenty of extra amenities made the trip easier: beach towels, boogie boards, cooler--these definitely came in handy. Kitchen was well-stocked (even a blender for smoothies/milkshakes when we weren't eating shave ice). Large DVD selection if you want to spend time indoors (this is Hawaii). The kids would have liked a backyard beach, but still amazing views. Front fence helped with privacy and car noise from semi-busy road. Area felt safe with two kids camps nearby. Great hikes 2 & 3 miles away, quickly rising to amazing ocean views in the mountainous state park across the road and a 2.5 mi hike that gives amazing sunrise views from the absolute northwest tip of the island. Each of these trailheads is accessible by car in 5 mins--some of the premier hikes on the island. For hang-gliding or sky-diving, the airfield across the street is where many go on the island for this--staying here avoids the hour drive from Waikiki. The North Shore was 30 minutes away, Waikiki 50 mins with traffic, Turtle Bay (snorkeling), Turtle Beach (sea turtles) 25-30 mins away on the north shore. Oceanfront horseback riding & polo 1/2 mile south. Beautiful ocean sunsets anywhere along the road 1-3 miles north to the tip if you aren't satisfied with the one out your back door. Plan ahead for groceries: 22 mins to Foodland, but Costco right off H2N is 30 mins away (cheapest gas in Oahu). For those seeking the "real local" experience, with activities that won't be packed with busloads of tourists getting dumped off with you, this is the place to stay to hit those remote stops. We'd stay here again when we're in Oahu, and recommend others stay here."

  • Magical stay

    "We stayed here for a month with our two little boys. We had been planning this trip forever. We have stayed in Hawaii many times before, and this was by far the best. If you want a fancy house...this isn't it. It's an old house. Some peeling paint...rusty original bedroom doorknobs..old furniture....etc. but we LOVED it. Coming "home" each day was the best part. It is EXACTLY as advertised: right on the sand. Super private beach. Charming, authentic, local residential street. Very clean. We went to bed each night listening to the ocean. Tons and tons of turtles every single day. The house next door to the right was empty the whole month except for 2 days...we were told it's been owned by same family we felt like we had a VERY private backyard space and made it even quieter at night. The property manager, Robert, was always available and quick to tend to any needs. Outdoor shower, deck, beach chairs, large table to eat dinner outside, laundry room, view of ocean. 10 minutes max drive to Haleiwa, our fave town. Local Coffee shop right down the street Brew & Foam highly recommended. Great house!!!!"
