A group of us rented this house for a vacation. We had members from our group from Alaska, Canada and California. If you are familiar with the North Shore, the house is located on the Northwest side of the island by the Dillingham airfield. If you are not familiar, google the airfield and you will find the general location of the House. I have stayed on the North Shore for years but never with a large group. With most never having been to Hawaii or staying on the beach they loved they ability to swim at will. There is tons of snorkel gear and body boards at the house. We went swimming, snorkeling, boarding every day, sometimes 5 times a day. The ability to wash laundry is huge. There are plenty of towels and beach towels and the kitchen has whatever you need to cook whatever you want. Going out to eat is fun, but cooking meals at the house is convenient and economical. This house and vacation definitely deserves a five star rating. If you are looking for a great place to vacation away from the urban mess of Waikiki beach and the south shores, this is certainly it. I appreciate the hospitality of the owners for allowing us to stay in their wonderful home. I also appreciate the kindness of their property manager. This was a great vacation. Please don't hesitate to book this wonderful house. Mahalo!!!!!
