My wife and I spent one week at this condo. It is exactly as described and shown in the pics. The unit was very clean and nicely remodeled. We had no complaints. You will feel like a resident of the north shore. It's about a mile from downtown Haleiwa, in a relatively quiet area. We spent 2 or 3 days on the beach there (snorkeling was great - sea turtles, lots of fish, and not crowded). There are several locals that walk the beach in the morning and are very friendly. The other days we went to Sunset beach, Waimea Bay, Sharks Cove, and a few other spots on the North Shore (all a within a short drive with lots of scenery). If you're going to dinner in Haleiwa, go early. Certain restaurants close at 6pm, but there are several that stay open later. The condo has a coffee maker, buy some coffee from the Coffee gallery too (freshly ground and grown on one of the islands), rent a paddleboard (they will deliver to the condo). Stay away from Honolulu (too much traffic!!!). The condo has 2 nice beach chairs, umbrella, and a cooler. Shower has great water pressure and you can open the louvers on both ends of the condo and get a nice breeze. FYI, Matsumoto's is worth the wait! I could go on, but go experience it and see for yourself.
