All the furnishings and linens are kept very clean for your comfort. Ke Iki is known for its shelling and snorkeling.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just purchased a new refrigerator so I hope the noise issue is mute. I appreciate it when my guests tell me verbally or by note if something is unsatisfactory.

Mahalo to all my guests for their recommendations.

2nd honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I got to enjoy this wonderful studio on our recent stay. The pictures don't do it justice at all! The room was stocked and clean. Bed was extremely comfortable. Tina and her family were very accommodating and friendly. Loved the outdoor shower and watching the sunset from the relaxing lounge chairs. Also it was really accessible to everything we needed (shopping, food, etc) We'd definitely stay there again and recommend to any of our friends coming to Oahu. Mahalo again to Tina

Relaxing, amazing views

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I made sure to watch the sunset from those chairs 6/7 nights with wine/beer. I loved the view! The room was comfortable. The bed was great to sleep in, and I usually am a little picky. Everything we needed to relax. Walking distance to a lot. Beautiful beach and the hosts were wonderful. Thank you!

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 9 days here and it was perfect for our needs. It was our first trip to the North Shore and we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Very quiet and laid back, with the beach just steps away. Plenty of food and activity options very close. We can't wait to come back!

My husband and I Went here for our 25 Year Anniversary and it was spectacular. It was so quiet but yet so close to so much stuff. Such as Shark's Cove, Waimea Bay, Sunset Beach, food trucks galore, grocery store and Ted's Bakery. The place had everything you needed studio, kitchen, beach towels, beach cruisers, snorlkeling gear and much more. Super clean which is a must for me. There is also lawn chairs available to watch the sunrise/sunset that were so beautiful. The owners were super friendly and really helpful for suggestions where to eat and really kind. I felt right at home. I would definitely stay here again when we go back and recommend to my friends.

Perfect Location

  • 4 of 5

My partner and I stayed here for four nights at the beginning of our Hawaii trip. It was the perfect location for our North Shore stay. Beautiful backyard right on the beach which was perfect for watching the surf and relaxing with a few wines. Tina was very helpful when we needer her but also kept to herself which made it feel like we had the whole place to ourselves. We will definitely stay again!

We went to Christine's for our honeymoon, and it was like living in paradise. Everything was beautiful. The weather, the room, the people. We enjoyed everything they had to offer. There was nothing we wanted for. The room was very clean, we were able to cook if we wanted and we had everything our hearts desired. We were also able to use their swim gear and their bikes. I would definitely go back and tell anyone who is interested to go and stay there. We didn't want to leave. We are very happy with everything they offered. Thank you for a wonderful trip.
