This clean, well equipped apartment was perfect for our low key week on the North Shore. Waimea beach is a quarter mile walk away and is a lovely, clean, life guarded beach across the street from the Waimea Valley Botanical Gardens (a must and there's a farmers market there on Thursdays). Three Tables beach is an even shorter distance, good for snorkeling, and was perfect for sunset swims or before breakfast. Near to the grocery, coffee shop, shave ice stand, and excellent food truck called "The Galley". The apartment has an outdoor shower, bikes, etc. The owner is very easy to make arrangements with and was responsive and warm, but gave us our privacy too! We recommend this place if you want a sweet private spot. P.s. We chose to rent an economy car and the drive from the airport was 50 minutes. Then we had it to explore the east side of the island, too. Well worth it.
