Recent North Shore Oahu reviews

  • Great property

    "This is a great property and location, and Bitsy was very easy to work with. Our teenage kids enjoyed having the loft to themselves, the washer/dryer came in handy, and the beach and snorkeling equipment was quite useful. My only "complaint" was 1-2 burned-out lightbulbs that needed to be replaced, but everything else was ideal. I would definitely recommend it without hesitation."

  • An authentic old Hawaiian atmosphere right here on Oahu.

    "Traditional Hawaiian house with huge deck, enclosed back yard, quiet neighborhood. 3 bedrooms, but only one small bathroom. Five bicycles to ride on awesome trails to many beaches. Kitchen small, no dishwasher. Second shower is outdoors and awesome. North shore surfing and gigantic waves lived up to their reputation, yet there were several protected beaches to boogie board and snorkel. Deck closet had much beach equipment for our use: umbrellas, boogie boards, snorkel masks etc. This house is definitely not condo chic, but very relaxing and comfortable. We'll be back!"

  • Location! Location! Location!

    "This was our third trip to the North Shore and by far our favorite home to stay in. Jamie was both accommodating and made us feel assured that everything for our stay was taken care of. Waialua Retreat is a treasure. The perfect location to explore and relax. It's far enough from the crowds to have your own private family vacation but close enough to activities, great food and entertainment. The house is beautiful and when you walk out the back door your a handful of steps from the beach! We made good use of the kayaks, jacuzzi and beach supplies. There's everything a family needs to enjoy Oahu. Can't wait for our next stay."

  • Wonderful location and gorgeous condo, a bit noisy

    "LOCATION: perfect. Right on a beach great for snorkeling/swimming and turtle watching, with easy access to surfing spots throughout Haleiwa. Far enough from town to feel remote, not touristy, with beautiful surrounding parks and adjacent beaches. Didn't perceive any safety issues. CONDO: gorgeous. Impeccably clean (and I'm fussy!) with high end decor and great kitchen stuff. We cooked every meal in the condo. Soft sheets and plenty of fluffy towels. They were so kind to leave snorkel masks (clean!), beach chairs and dedicated beach towels. SMALL CRITICISMS: the bedroom adjoins the parking lot and has no ocean view, so we made up the comfortable futon in the living room. It was great for the two of us, but might be a bit uncomfortable for larger groups. The bathroom in the bedroom was small but lovely. The 2nd bath was somewhat small but easily usable and, again, beautifully remodeled. NOT A PROBLEM: no air conditioning. We loved the breezy December temperature and used fans for total comfort. The screen door onto the patio doesn't lock (neither does the back bedroom door), but we didn't tell the owners while we were there, so not a legit complaint. We felt safe, though it was a bit disconcerting to have a couple of residents walk by right outside the unit, which is ground floor. Not a big deal. MAJOR ISSUE: the parking lot noise made it impossible to sleep in the adjacent bedroom. People weren't loud partiers, but with windows open, every footstep and car could be heard. We slept in the living room facing the ocean, and were "serenaded" by a crowing rooster every morning from 4:30 - 5:30 am and occasionally at other times. We're early risers, so not a huge deal, but expect to be awakened by the pretty rooster immediately outside the ground floor unit behind a chain link fence. The chickens weren't a problem, nor were the many beautiful wild birds. We could, however, hear every neighbor as they moved furniture (probably futons converted to beds at night). OWNERS: lovely. Never intrusive, always immediately responsive. They seem to take real pride in maintaining this unit and accommodating guest needs. This is worth an extra star! Overall, for our needs, we may try to find a quieter spot, maybe a house. But this condo is a great value for the location and how beautiful and well maintained it is."
