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.

My wife and I came here to celebrate our tenth year anniversary. The room is small, but we expected that after reading the reviews and looking at the photos. It did not matter anyway because we did not go there to stay in a room. The home is right on the beach; we could walk barefoot from our room to the sand and water. We also walked to dinner, Waimea Bay (great for watching other tourists cliff jump, belly flop, etc) and good snorkeling at Shark's Reef and Three Tables, all of which was within a modest walk (mile or less). Christina and her family lived in their home and were present, but they left us alone and were gracious and friendly.

We stayed away from Honolulu to avoid the City and the traffic. We spent most of our time along the North Shore and along the northeast coast, where we found ample activities-shark tour, kayak tour, hiking, more snorkeling, Polynesian Cultural Center, and more. We bought our own snorkeling gear for $35 at the local Foodland (less than a mile walk) because we wanted fins and wanted to avoid being concerned with damaging the mask and snorkel in the room. Since Kanehameha Hwy is basically the only road through most of the nearby areas, traffic can get busy, especially when kids' school started/ended or much of the day through or near the town of Haleiwa due to tourist, so we avoided that area except when needed.

While walking was great during the day, my wife and I did not feel too safe at night walking along the nearby path because of a few homeless characters around and because the walking path is quite dark due to the heavy tree cover and lack of light. I got the impression that you would find similar characters in about any neighborhood on the island unless you are in a gated community or isolated resort (such as the nearby Turtle Bay Resort and the the adjacent Kulimia Cove, which had an unnaturally clean and manicured feel and which is nice if you that is what you prefer. By the way, Kulimia Cove is great snorkeling for beginners due to the protection from waves and gentle-sloped, sandy approach). Otherwise, we felt safe, including in our room, at the beach and walking around during the day.

We had a great time and would recommend this room to any couple interested in the North Shore area.

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!
