We knew we wanted to stay away from the tourist filled attractions of Waikiki, but we had no idea this place would be so awesome!!! Being from south texas I was worried about no AC, but the fans and screened windows were awesome. I was never hot or sweating, even in the night. The cooler temperatures up on the mountain also make it very comfortable and relaxing. This place has top of the line appliances, a fully stocked kitchen for cooking, a keurig, a great vanity, and a super cool outdoor shower. Some said the shower needed a door or curtain, but I stayed there for two weeks and came to love the privacy and scenic views while taking a shower! plus you can see inside too. There were no bugs in the shower or anything like that. Aside from the inside, the location was perfect. we spent the majority of our time on the North Shore, at the shops in Haleiwa (Surf n Sea in Haleiwa is a MUST for surfers or beach lovers), or just hanging out on the awesome beaches like Waimea Bay and Sunset beach. We scarcely went into honolulu. There is a grocery store and coffee shop just down the road from the cabin, so everything you need is in reach. Not to mention the food trucks! all of them are amazing choices for lunch and dinner. The neighborhood is safe and beautiful. In the mornings my fiance and I would wake up and make breakfast, then go for a run around the mountain, come home and head to the beach!! Nicole has Snorkel gear as well for playing at the beach. Netflix comes with the room which was amazing. Good WIFI connection. and cute little goats! Lastly, the view from the cabin is Stunning! you can wake up every morning and look out at Waimea Bay! I hope you all love it as much as we did!!
I booked this vacation rental last year and it was everything we were looking for in a rental!! The location was amazing wonderful view of the North Shore. Perfect for 2 and a small child, they have a grassy area to run around in front and so close to the beach, grocery store, coffee shop, and away from the congestion of the city. It's the perfect getaway spot. Quiet and cool tucked away in the valley. Also lots of historic sites nearby, and hiking. We had wifi and tv available, towels, full kitchen where I did some of my best cooking haha. It was really wonderful staying here cant wait to come back!! Owner had great communication and also helped mail something to us that we left in the studio. Thank again!
We couldn't have asked for more. Clean, friendly, gorgeous experience with Nicole and her tenants. I'd recommend this place for anyone who really wants to relax, and just generally be in a very special feeling environment.
Nicole was awesome in communicating with us, the place is fitted out beautifully and it was peaceful. We had to be a little organised as everything was a short drive away but it was peaceful. It does have an outside shower which was convenient for sandy wash off's but thought the curtain on the shower outer doorway to the back yard could be replaced with a actual door for a better feeling of privacy.
Really close to the North shore but away enough to be very quiet and peaceful.
A great place to stay if you are on a budget! It's a Studio, new very clean with fully equipped kitchen. We had a couple of surprises. There are native chickens all over Oahu! Your morning wake up call from a rooster can come anytime early morning. Also almost nobody has Air Conditioning! Windows and fans do the trick. In fact the 2 ceiling fans in the unit are remote controlled with temperature control.
We really enjoyed the private outdoor shower after a day at the beach with the supplied snorkel mask and fins. It's also only 5 minute away from Shark Cove. A great place to try your snorkeling skills.
