|Minimum Stay||4 nights|
This ground floor, one bedroom, two bath oceanfront condo. It is the perfect setting for the vacationer who would like to experience the feel of laidback Hawaii. Our condo is located just down the beach from some of the world’s most famous surfing beaches on the North Shore of Oahu. In the winter months ( October to March), the North Shores Waves can reach 30 - 40 feet at times, with all of the champion surfers holding their contests here. During the winter months, whale watching can be enjoyed from our beach when the Alaskan Humpbacks put on a show in our waters. In the summer months ( April to September), you can enjoy the calm, warm waters with your favorite water sport. The sandy beach in our backyard is wonderfully uncrowded and is protected by three coral reefs which makes for nice swimming, diving, and snorkeling. We provide everything you'll need to make your stay comfortable, including all beach accessories, and wireless internet.
If you want the nightlife of Waikiki, this is not for you as quiet hours are from 10 pm to 8 am and this is strictly enforced by the on-site resident manager. We live on-site in another condominium and will be able to assist you during your stay.
Thanks so much for making our stay so enjoyable. You were the perfect host ensuring that we had everything we needed. The location of your condo couldn't have been better. The grandkids loved being so close to the beach. The oldest will remember this time here for a long time.
With many thanks,
Bill and Iris
PS Your restaurant, Spagettini, is great!
May 2007. Great condo! Perfect location. We didn't want to leave. I miss drinking my morning coffee on the beach and seeing the turtles swimming. Bob & Suzanne are really great and the food at Spaghettini's was awesome! We would highly recommend staying here!
LOCATION: perfect. Right on a beach great for snorkeling/swimming and turtle watching, with easy access to surfing spots throughout Haleiwa. Far enough from town to feel remote, not touristy, with beautiful surrounding parks and adjacent beaches. Didn't perceive any safety issues.
CONDO: gorgeous. Impeccably clean (and I'm fussy!) with high end decor and great kitchen stuff. We cooked every meal in the condo. Soft sheets and plenty of fluffy towels. They were so kind to leave snorkel masks (clean!), beach chairs and dedicated beach towels.
SMALL CRITICISMS: the bedroom adjoins the parking lot and has no ocean view, so we made up the comfortable futon in the living room. It was great for the two of us, but might be a bit uncomfortable for larger groups. The bathroom in the bedroom was small but lovely. The 2nd bath was somewhat small but easily usable and, again, beautifully remodeled.
NOT A PROBLEM: no air conditioning. We loved the breezy December temperature and used fans for total comfort. The screen door onto the patio doesn't lock (neither does the back bedroom door), but we didn't tell the owners while we were there, so not a legit complaint. We felt safe, though it was a bit disconcerting to have a couple of residents walk by right outside the unit, which is ground floor. Not a big deal.
MAJOR ISSUE: the parking lot noise made it impossible to sleep in the adjacent bedroom. People weren't loud partiers, but with windows open, every footstep and car could be heard. We slept in the living room facing the ocean, and were "serenaded" by a crowing rooster every morning from 4:30 - 5:30 am and occasionally at other times. We're early risers, so not a huge deal, but expect to be awakened by the pretty rooster immediately outside the ground floor unit behind a chain link fence. The chickens weren't a problem, nor were the many beautiful wild birds. We could, however, hear every neighbor as they moved furniture (probably futons converted to beds at night).
OWNERS: lovely. Never intrusive, always immediately responsive. They seem to take real pride in maintaining this unit and accommodating guest needs. This is worth an extra star!
Overall, for our needs, we may try to find a quieter spot, maybe a house. But this condo is a great value for the location and how beautiful and well maintained it is.
Mahalo Suzanne & Bob , your place was perfect and everything I hoped it would be. We enjoyed the peace and quiet at this condo. I've been coming to the islands for the last 9 years and I have never encountered so many turtles , as I did at the beach right in front of the condo. We will be back !!!
Aloha Bob & Suz!
My son & I had a wonderful time at the condo. It was perfect, just steps to the beautiful beach. The snorkeling was great. The condo was comfortable and clean, we had everything we needed. The whale watching trip was the icing on the cake...awesome! We couldn't have asked for more! We hope to return!
As usual, our stay was amazing. The remodeled unit is beautiful. The walls of the lightest blue, is very soothing & homey. The new updated kitchen is gorgeous & it let's you view to the outside. This is our 7th year coming & we feel like we are coming home to family.
Suzanne; in April it will be 2 years since we were there and are looking at coming back this March/April. I love your reno's. They look fantastic! We will be in touch for another great stay. This will be our 4th time at your condo and looking forward to it.
We are located within walking distance, just one mile, from Haleiwa town where there are all the retail shops, supermarkets, & restaurants you need to make your trip complete. Haleiwa is known as the Surf Capital of the world.
