My husband and I were absolutely blessed to have the opportunity to live in this amazing home for 7 months. Thank you Richard for letting us stay in your wonderful, beautiful home , and Thank you Michaelene for making the process so smooth and easy.
We loved every minute!!!! We would like to come back to Hawaii for another visit, and without a doubt, this rental would be the only place we would want to stay.
As far as the Sea wall goes...We Loved it!!! It was like getting rocked to sleep, every night. We still miss the sound of the water lapping up against the sea wall.
From December-March, we were able to watch Whales breaching and showing off, from inside the house, and from the back deck. It was AMAZING, and incredible. We saw turtles floating by everyday, and even got to see a monk seal float leisurely by one day. We were able to witness the most beautiful and stunning Sunrises and Sunsets.
Also, it was fun to watch the Skydivers right above the house. Which, by the way, if you are interested in Skydiving (recommend Pacific Skydiving )..you can just walk across the street to Dillingham Airfield (so easy). If you want to take a Glider it is about a 1/2 mile further. Again, so easy. Also, check out the blue Food truck (HoloHolo), at the airfield. The food is wonderful, and we LOVED the Acai Bowls (yummy!!!).
Our Favorite restaurant was only 5-10 minutes away, in Haleiwa......"Opal Thai" (The BEST thai food we have ever had). Opal (the owner) asks you a series of questions on your likes and dislikes, and then he orders for you. It will be a pleasant surprise! Opal Thai's restaurant was rated #1 on the island of Oahu (highly recommend).
If you want to swim with the sharks ..'Hawaii Shark Encounters'. (Haleiwa 10-15 minutes away)
If you want a beautiful Sunset cruise..'North Shore Catamaran charters' (Haleiwa 10-15 minutes away).
Check out the Soap factory and Coffee Mill in Waialua (5-7 min way).
If you want to go horse back riding on the Beach, oahuhorsebackrides.com
(You have to make a reservation or call, as they do not take last minute guests). They are located at the Hawaii Polo Club, which is about a 2 minute drive from the house.
I loved that everything really was so close to this vacation rental.
I agree with the previous review.........It is actually hard to leave the house. It is so relaxing and incredible to just hang out at the house. Thanks again Richard and Michaelene for everything!!
