An ideal place!
There is not much more to say about this property than what has been highlighted by other guests. Our stay was memorable for many reasons, but much for the room, serenity and space offered by this home. Aris, with Alexis and John, have created a lovely and low-key place for families or couples to rest, unwind and enjoy the magical vibe of the North Shore. We traveled with our adult kids (21 & 19) who both had their own room (paid for the extra room downstairs...so well worth it!) and all of us commented how much privacy and space we all felt. The house was incredibly well-appointed with good quality linens, towels, housewares, appliances, outdoor grill, etc. (A couple of larger chefs knives would have been helpful...but, nothing to hold anyone back from preparing meals here). Also included were all the "beach" things that you might need including masks, snorkels, fins, body boards, beach chairs, mats, ice chests, etc. The 3 minute walk to the beach each morning with my coffee in-hand is the ritual I miss the most (or most look forward to on my return here!) as I now sit in a cold Seattle winter. Right at our figurative doorstep we had Sunset Beach, Back Yards and V-Land as the setting for the start of our day, the middle of our day and the end of our days watching EPIC sunsets.
Don't miss Haleiwa Joe's for dinner (some of the best Ono I have eaten and a crab/avocado salad my wife and daughter enjoyed); Sharks Cove grill for super casual dinner/lunch al fresco; Ted's Bakery for good eggs breakfasts and even better pastry and pie (almond cinnamon Danish pastry...have one...or six... for me, please!); good, albeit somewhat pricey fruit can be had at a multi-vendor fruit stand two miles east toward Turtle Bay. If you want to prepare you own meals, Foodland has just about all that anyone needs. But, if you are there on a Thursday, visit the Farmers Market at Waimea Falls Park. Good produce, Molokai beef and fresh fish, along with other prepared foods and artisan works. In Haleiwa, visit VJs Butcher Block for other grassfed beef, lamb, game and fish...Kyle is a good guy to speak with if you love to talk meat!
While it might be tempting, don't hunt down the roosters living next door. After that first night, you will come to love them, as you will the geckos all about :)
Don't hesitate to rent this place...it is lovely and its owners are simply wonderful and very east to do business with.
