Four adults and four teens shared this beautiful home for 7 nights. The house is easy to find and conveniently located to shopping, snorkeling,restaurants, etc. The kitchen had all we needed when we wanted to eat in and the beds and linens were very comfortable.
Air conditioning in the bedrooms was welcome for sleeping. The downstairs was kept cool by keeping the doors open with the ocean breeze. The house is well maintained with a set of towels laid out on each bed welcoming us (including a beach towel for each of us).
We loved the convenience of a sandy beach right in our backyard and also a large grassy area that hosted some awesome croquet matches. You could sit along the back of the grassy area and not get sandy while enjoying watching the surf lap against the beach.
The owner was responsive to my texts and questions and did check in but not in an intruding way. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a relaxing get away. We stayed here after four nights in Honolulu so we were ready to relax. The home is close enough to the North Shore shops and dining.....but not too close.
TO DO: I would highly recommend the Polynesian Cultural Center, snorkeling at Hale'ewa Alli'i Beach Park in the afternoon (if you want to see Seat Turtles up close and in person), snorkeling at Sharks Cove, and North Shore Surf Girls surf lessons.
TO EAT: North Shore Taco's (PORK TACO's!!), Naughty Bits Garlic Shrimp, and Papa Ole's.
