WOW! My (now) fiance and I just recently got back from our 10 day Hawaiian vacay and really cannot say enough about this spot and Tish. We were looking for somewhere romantic and private, and could not have picked a better spot. Aside from Tish's hospitality, the property was super clean, private, peaceful, and the VIEW!! Although we spent most of our time laying on the beach or out exploring the island, we loved being able to watch the beautiful sunsets right from patio and listen to the ocean at night. 5 stars just isn't enough for this place. This is where my fiance and I plan on getting married, and we will most definitely be renting from Tish again when we come back :)!!!

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. It was amazing! Everything is in great condition and it was so convenient to have the kitchen, washer and dryer. The owner is just lovely! Very helpful and available throughout our stay. There is a AC unit in the bedroom and ceiling fans. We didn’t ever turn the AC on, just kept the windows open with the fan on (November trip). We love the north shore and this is the perfect location.

The place is very clean. We were close to eateries. We really enjoyed relaxing at the place and listening to the ocean. The bed was very comfortable. We could enjoy the view from the living room couches. We needed a quiet weekend and we got it!!

Amazing Honeymoon Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! We had such an amazing time in Hawaii at this spot! Tish outdid herself with her hospitality. We were in Hawaii for two weeks & loved every minute of it!! This was the best spot to stay at!! Not to far from North Shore which was one of our favorite spots!! We loved coming back to enjoy all the peace quiet! Every time we came back to the home we spotted sea turtles, an octopus, & a whole bunch of colorful fish! Definitely worth the price & worth the stay! We pretty much did it all while we were in Oahu. From swimming with sharks in Haleiwa, snorkeled in Hanauma Bay, drove up to Waikiki for a catamaran boat ride, Germaine's luau, Turtle Bay, Lanai Kai, Sharks Cove, Dole Plantation, Pearl Harbor. We had a blast! Thanks so much to Lance & Tish for everything!! Highly recommend this rental. Tish was there for us anytime that we needed her and we listened to all the spots she told us to go! We can't wait to go back!!

Little Cottage on the Water

  • 4 of 5

We arrived on Thanksgiving Day for my brother's wedding that weekend. We were so excited about our trip - first time to Hawaii - and Tish was great to work with! She share our enthusiasm and offered helpful information. Both Tish and Lance were very accommodating, making us feel welcomed. The home is right on the water and I enjoyed watching the sunrise very day. The home was clean and equipped with all the essentials. The bed was very comfortable. The location was perfect for us. We travelled all around the island and enjoyed many of the sights while we were there. The sliding door is difficult to move at times so we bought some WD-40 and that did the trick! It is not the owners fault; the seawater splashes up on really windy days. There was a family of four that came later in the week and stayed at the other upstairs apartment and we all shared the yard. I only mention this because I was not aware there was an apartment on the property that would be rented out. I thought we would have the home to ourselves. They were nice and it didn't bother us because we didn't spend time outside too much since it rained most of the time. Overall I would recommend this home. The location is great. It is clean and comfortable. Owners are wonderful to work with.

Lovely back yard, lovely view.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for a week in this rental. This unit was quite large. The best thing about this property is the back yard. Right on the water. Wonderful views. There is no beach, but you don't need one. We were glad there was no beach as it added privacy. There is a nice little beach a block down the road if you need one.

The free internet was great. Strong and fast in the apartment but there was no reception when you walked out the door into the back yard. Not a big deal.

The floors need a good cleaning. They were filthy. Sweeping is not enough. The couches had lots of sand in them. There were also a few maintenance issues. The screen door would not close completely and bugs got in at night and bit us up quite badly. After that my husband found a broom handle that he propped in the screen door. We had trouble locking the patio door as it was so old and worn. The outdoor shower did not work. One of the loungers in the back yard only had one arm. Minor things but it would be nice to have them fixed.

When it rains water comes in thru the front patio terribly. This just can't be helped. It rained several times a day, every day we were there. The weather here is not like Waikiki.

Be aware that this is a shared property. There is a 3 bedroom apartment upstairs and behind this unit that you have to share the back yard with. This is not mentioned anywhere in the write up for the rental. For the first 4 days we had complete quiet and privacy. Then the family of 7 arrived in the apartment behind us. They were pretty nice people but there was no more peace, privacy or quiet. 7 people in that small back yard with us, with kids running around screaming is not what we were looking for. At night the kids walking/jumping on the floor above us was loud and disturbing.

We only had to use the air conditioning in the bedroom one night to get away from the bugs. There is really good air flow that air conditioning is really not needed,

The snorkeling in front of the rental wasn't very good. However, there were lots of huge sea turtles which we loved to watch.

There was a Foodland, McDonalds and Dominos right up the road. The polynesian cultural center is also close by. If you want wine or any kind of alcohol you have to go way out of town. Nothing in that area sells alcohol because of the Mormon influence.

Tish and Lance were very nice and welcoming. They even let us check in early.

Car: recommended

We are located 45 minutes from the airport in the rural town of Hauula. Houses here were designed as beach homes for city folks who would enjoy spending time in the country to unwind their busy lives. Today, Hauula is still a popular getaway place for local people to come and relax themselves on the beaches all along this side of the island.

The Polynesian Cultural Center, the Mormon Temple and grocery stores are 6 minutes away. Kualoa Ranch to the south and Turtle Bay Resort to the north are 15 minutes from us. Sunset Beach, Waimea Beach, and Pipeline to the north and Valley of the Temples to the south are 25 minutes drive respectively.
