This is Hawaii and the North Shore as its best.
We had such a lovely time. The house is equipped with every amenity. The pictures depict the property accurately. It was the most relaxing vacation I have had in a long time. Would definitely stay again.
This was the most amazing rental house I could have ever imagined. It had everything!!! It reminded me of something I would have seen on TV. My family and I didn't want to leave. We will definitely come back here!!!!
This is an amazing property and worth every penny! From the view of the whales splashing off the coast to the peaceful haven of the pool and gardens this home offered unique details we've seldom experienced in a rental. Safely tucked away on a hill on the North Shore we had easy access to most any activity you could imagine as well as a peaceful getaway from the masses. A perfect combination of convenience and luxury!
Family from New York and the UK spent a fabulous 8 nights at this property. It has everything you could ever want in a vacation rental and we were in awe of the grounds and the pool and spa area. My parents from the UK said it was the best vacation they had ever been on. Close to the shops and restaurants and North Shore is 5 minute drive.
Don't be put off by the rating, It was worth the money as far as I was concerned and what you'd pay for this kind of accommodation with a resort, because this IS a resort and as a friend put it, a destination in itself. The photos were accurate and it's a spectacular place to stay. The photos do it justice, the grounds are immaculate and the huge windows offer a spectacular view. The furnishings and appointments are high end. I LOVED this place but there were a couple of issues which I found disappointing and I have no doubt that these will be taken care of and this will be a five star accommodation. The two issues which were probematic:
1) The refrigerator needs replacing. It didn't keep things cold enough... I don't want to have to put ice cubes in my milk and the gaskets on the fridge need replacing at the very least. That being said, when I mentioned it to Gary, the owner, he said another fridge is on the way. That being the case, we're up to four stars.
2) The lighting in the pool area. The only lighting comes from the pool house at this point. There are three lights in the pool and one in the hot tub which don't function. This was the greatest disappointment for me as we're out doing things through the day so the pool would be used at night. There were a couple of tiki torches by the hot tub which could make a difference.. but they had no tiki. There was no wick in one instance and no tiki can in the other.
To be fair, Gary wasn't made aware of the lighting issue as it only came up on the last couple of nights of our stay and when the fridge issue was mentioned he said one was on order. On to the positives.
This truly is resort living in a private home. We made use of the pool during the day and with the waterfall and hot tub? Wow. The location is perfect, centrally located to everything on the North Shore
and I'd definitely rent again because it *is* so opulent and comfortable and roomy. Hey, I challenge you to find a resort in which you'd find a baby grand piano in your place for your use. It's a *beautiful* home and well worth the money. Ellen the caretaker was always available to address any concerns.
Again, don't let the rating put you off as it was based purely on the points I mentioned and I have no doubt that they'll be addressed. Just ask prior to booking if you feel they may be an issue.
My family and I just returned from our amazing 10-day vacation in Oahu, Hawaii! When we weren't busy touring Oahu and soaking up the sun on the North Shore beaches, we were relaxing in our very own luxury vacation home where the sunsets and sunrises were absolutely breathtaking. So glad we decided to rent this home on Pupukea Hill vs. a vacation rental on the beach. My boys can't stop talking about the awesome time they had adventuring through the 1-acre kid paradise (amazing swimming pool, hot tub, fruit orchard, tree house, and on and on), and we can’t stop talking about how relaxing it was to stay away from all the hustle and bustle of the beach rentals. This beautiful home truly made our amazing vacation even better!
The property is a world of its own on a hilltop overlooking the North Shore, and is 5 minutes from world class surfing, snorkeling, swimming, windsurfing, kiteboarding, kayaking, and beachcombing.
