Guestbook comments from the owner

We had the best stay...The house was just perfect...There were so many turtles and fish in front of the house and the ocean was like a lake. I spent most of my time on the deck relaxing and watching the ocean.

Great Property in a Magical Place

  • 5 of 5

The home was exactly what our Group of 6 needed. Everything was exactly as we had read, and communication with the owners was easy & clear. The house was spotless, & had all of the amenities we could think of. The location was just minutes from some of the best North Shore dive & snorkel spots. The Elevated patio was a treat, and we spent many evenings there enjoying the sunset. We would absolutely recommend this to friends & would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Great location on North Shore!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week in July 2011. The beach house comfortably accommodated my husband and me, my 80 year old mother, and my 2 college-aged kids. The house has fans in every room, which we used every evening. A/C would have been nice, but we got along ok without it. We enjoyed watching the sunsets over the ocean from the porch perched up on the roof of the house. The location was perfect for us. It is a 5 minute walk to Shark's Cove (perfect for scuba divers and beginner snorkelers in summer). If you walk down the bike path 5 minutes in the other direction, you will find a secret sandy beach with public access but no public parking. Restaurants, dive shops, etc. are about a 10 minute drive away, in Hale'iwa. The owners are friendly and nice to work with.
