I just got back from a fantastic holiday on the North Shore. The pictures for the cottage do not do it justice at all - the views are even more amazing in person. I was initially concerned that the lack of air conditioning would be a problem, but the constant ocean breeze kept the temp very comfortable. The apartment was very clean, and fully equipped with dishes, towels, tp,etc. Other than a few very mellow geckos and a couple of ants, there were no unwelcome critters sharing the space. The location is absolutely peaceful and perfect - you almost feel as though you have your own private beach. If there is a prettier spot on Oahu I have yet to see it. I would definitely rent here again. THANK YOU, WENDY!
