Guestbook comments from the owner

The condo was very clean and comfortable, the view from the lanai was spectacular and the location right on the beach was unbeatable - we loved sitting on the deck drinking in the ocean, walking on the beach, and swimming and snorkeling in the water right out front ... and the personal encounters with the sea turtles were the highlight of our visit!

Haleiwa Surf- Amazing Unit!

This unit has an incredible view! The sound of the surf and the cool ocean breeze was

very calming and tranquil! A great place to relax after our days of adventure and sightseeing! Also, this unit was very clean and comfortable. Craig made sure we had everything we needed to make our stay memorable! I would highly recommend this unit! Wish we could have stayed longer!!!

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our time on the North Shore at Craig's Haleiwa Surf condo. He was a generous and gracious host and went out of his way to accommodate us. We definitely hope to be back and in the meantime whole heartedly recommend this unit.

Chilled out beach front

  • 5 of 5

This was just what we were needing after 2 weeks of exploring Hawaii. The condo was really clean and comfortable and the location could not have been better. Really handy having the basics provided. Condiments and seasonings and even Laundry detergent. Craig was really personable and communication was top notch and easy. We spent most of our time on the Lanai watching the water. Very relaxing. The pushbikes were great to just duck into town as well. We are hoping to come back here in winter for the big waves and to catch up for a beer with Craig. Very cool .

Wonderful place for the family!

  • 5 of 5

Craig met us at the condo and was super helpful with recommendations for local restaurants, swimming and things for the kids to do. The condo was well stocked with the basics including fresh coffee grounds so we could have coffee on the lanai the first morning without having to go shopping first. The kids loved being able to swim at any time of the day and they really enjoyed our stay here. The other residents of the complex were helpful and friendly and Hale'iwa is a wonderful little town. The condo is close enough to easily walk to the shops in town and there is plenty to do nearby. We can't wait to come back and we will try to get Craig's condo again when we do!

Beach life at its best!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was tidy and well-equipped. Oh, and right on the beach with a nice lanai with a beautiful view of the waves. Access to town is an easy walk and Craig was quick to offer good advice about restaurants, amenities and recreation opportunities. The beach in front of the condo complex offers calm waters that are perfect for swimming and snorkeling right off the sand, with turtles and monk seals too. When we visit the North Shore next we'll definitely consider staying here again.

Our family of five loved the fact that we could walk right out and literally swim with the fish and turtle. Craig was a delight and made us feel right at home. Haleiwa is one of our favorite towns and I can't wait to come back. Mahalo Craig!

This unit is among very few in the building that is an end unit in the ocean front building. This adds to the comfort of the usual trade winds as well as the direct view of the ocean. It is not unusual to see whales,dolphins,turtles and occasionally a Monk seal right off the lanai.
