We loved this vacation rental, and spectacular location in Waialua. The beach is especially private, we saw tonnes of turtles, whales, and some great snorkeling on Mokuleia beach, even right in front of the Aweoweo Beach Park..There is a large reef break 500 yards out, so it's always safe to swim in, especially with kids.
The birds were great to wake up to, and we loved to walk along Crozier road- a single lane, which you can then hook back to the beach, then walk back to the condo.
The description of the suite is accurate, with well equipped kitchen. The bed in the master bedroom was OK, a new box spring would help ( we put the bed on the floor). The futon bed in the living room was great for our kids. The bathroom was OK, appreciated the washer/dryer.
Karen quickly responded to email, and we would definitely recommend this to friends as a reasonable priced vacation rental in wonderful area of Oahu.
We traveled Oahu without a car, and the bus stops directly in front of the condo. We came from Honolulu, then easily went back and forth to Haliewa.
Close to Haliewa for shopping, but far enough away from all the tourists to give you a more authentic Hawaiian vacation and experience.
We also met some very friendly locals, who gave us some great turtle seeing suggestions, hikes, advice about surfing lessons.
- Buttons Surf School
- Jerry's Pizza in Waialua is the BEST pizza on Oahu
- The best turtle spot is to look for the house with the red roof, ( to the right of the beach park), then go about 30 ft out- there is a 'cleaning' rock where the fish hide in, the turtles then go there and have the fish clean them..we saw turtles there every time...
All in a all a very positive experience. :-)
