BEAUTIFUL HAWAIIAN GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
The house was truly cozy and comfortable! Tish was waiting for us as soon as we got there (even though we had missed one of our flights due to a delay on a previous connection). She is so warm and friendly! My friends and I could not have asked for a warmer welcoming even though we were exhausted!

The house was spotless and exactly as the photos indicated. The artwork inside the house is beautiful and all by the owners! The house was easy to locate and in a friendly area. It has easy access to all the home amenities but with breathtaking views of Hawaii. You get to see the breathtaking sunrise off over the ocean of the deck each morning and when you go done to your car you see the mountains.

Tish is available for any advice or questions that you may have. She has wonderful advice for food and shopping there on the North Shore. The house has easy access to the beaches, Polynesian Cultural Center and Dole Plantation to name a few. Bus service is close to the house if you would rather take the bus instead of driving.

I would highly recommend this house and the owners for any stay in Oahu! They are truly wonderful and I can't wait to go back!!

DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH

  • 4 of 5
We arrived to a beautiful day and a lovely deck area. Tish was waiting for us. The rental itself has everything you need except a grill. It is in a wonderful location oceanfront. Some of the trees out by the deck could use a trimming to get a full view of the beautiful ocean. The inside could use new carpeting in the bedrooms. Also some updated curtains to make it feel more welcoming. The beds were very comfortable. When the windows are open at night there is traffic noise because it is close to the road. This is truly a diamond in the rough because with a little bit of paint (bright happy colors) and updating it could be so much more than it is. The location is to die for! We had a great time and did a lot of sightseeing all around the island. It takes approx. 1 1/2 hours to get to Waikiki and Germaine's luau due to traffic in the southern area. Waikiki has a lot of homeless people right on the main tourist area along the street that runs right next to the ocean and also the parks. The best place to stay if you want the feel of how Hawaiian's live is right here at Tish's gem. We would stay here again and it is only with love that we suggest updates!

UNBELIEVABLE, AMAZING, BREATH-TAKING

  • 5 of 5
WOW! There are no other words to describe! The house was in immaculate condition upon arrival; it was so cozy, just like we lived there! The view every morning was absolutely gorgeous; we watched the sunrise every morning! The water was literally steps away. We could not have possibly asked for a better location. This was without a doubt the most pleasant vacation we have ever been on. It was me, my wife, my mother, and mother in law. The rooms were spacious and comfortable! The paintings in the rooms were so welcoming and soothing. The owners were so incredibly helpful and accommodating. They told us all the best places to eat! I would recommend this specific property to any and all my friends and family visiting the north shore; there is simply no other reason to look anywhere else. We can't wait to go back!

GORGEOUS HAWAIIAN HOME

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at this home was absolutely wonderful. The home is located in the country but the drive to town is only about 40 minutes! The home is in a great location if you are looking for something more realistic of life in Hawaii. We went to the North Shore which was great as it was only about 30 minutes away from the house. As many people know, the North Shore is great for its beaches, surf culture, and shops. We went to Matsumoto's shave ice and it was delicious. There is also the Dole plantation out on the North Shore which was really neat. We did the maze which was so fun. We also spent a couple days in town in Waikiki and at Ala Moana mall. We loved returning to the country after a long day of fun in town. We did also spend a couple days at the home relaxing. The ocean right out back is great for snorkeling and the reef made us feel safe. Tish was also so wonderful and hospitable. She always made sure we were happy and comfortable. We would love to come back and stay at this home again!

AMAZING TIME IN HAWAII

  • 5 of 5
We were in Hawaii for 10 days and I rented this house for 7 of those days. We had an amazing time.

- Went with 6 people total so we split the total cost 6ways and it ended up cheaper than beach side hotel in waikiki.
- House is nice and clean, had everything you need, cups, plates, coffee maker, the rooms were nice and the patio view is amazing.
- Tish is super nice and gave us everything we needed
- We bought a bunch of seafood and did a BBQ one night outside on the patio, it was really nice. We hung out in that patio every night it's really nice.
- Wake up early to catch sunrise, one of the pluses for being on the east shore with unobstructed view of the horizon.
- House even had extra things that the previous renters had left behind like soy sauce, spices, coffee, detergent, etc. it's cool to see other renters leaving these behind for the next people. we did the same with a few things like bottled water, honey, more detergent.

Would definitely rent this house again, maybe next year when I bring my family.

Things to think about:

- It's about 45mins to 1hr from Waikiki depending on traffic, so plan your trip accordingly (waikiki sucks anyways, 2 days in waikiki out of 10day trip was good enough for me)
- PLAN, PLAN, PLAN your trip. Be efficient, especially when renting a house at this location. I planned one day for north shore (sharks cove, shrimp truck, waimea falls, waimea beach), then another day for PCC luau, turtle beach, shrimp trucks, then another day in kailua area, etc. Do this so that you dont waste time driving back and forth.. since 30min-1hr drive can easily eat away your day.

Overall our Hawaii trip was amazing and we did everything we planned to do and more, without rushing from places to places. This house is amazing and there's a reason why it's always booked.

Mahalo to Tish and Lance they were awesome hosts.

Map

Car: recommended

Hauula was a small fishing village on the northeastern coast of Oahu, with most homes designed and used as beach houses. Today, it is known as a weekend hideaway for city folks as well as a local artists' community. Since we are located at the coastal area, all sorts of ocean activities such as swimming, diving, snorkeling, fishing and surfing make your stay filled with fun. You may also want to take a scenic drive up the North along Kamehameha Hwy. The Polynesian Cultural Center, Turtle Bay Resort and Golf Course, Sunset Beach, Waimea Beach, and historic Haleiwa Town are within 5 to 30 minutes drive. Grocery stores are 2-4 miles away. Hauula Loop Trail is a little known yet excellent hiking spot nearby.
