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!

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.

Great location and view. Clean and comfortable condo.

  • 5 of 5

Since we had a wedding to attend during the weekend we searched for a place for our family of five to hang out in Haleiwa. Craig was very responsive and accommodating and allowed us to use his place for 4 days/3 nights on the holiday weekend. It is an older building but has a perfect ocean view and the unit is nicely renovated. Everything was clean and it had just what we needed to relax for the weekend. Craig was friendly and available but not overbearing. Mahalo!!!

Enjoyed Haleiwa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 4 nights and enjoyed Haleiwa, beach park nearby , Sunset beach, shopping malls where we can easily approach by car from this condo. The view from lanai was amazing, and we could see almost everyday turtles were swimming. We really appreciate Craig's hospitality and kind preliminary information. We will come back again to this condo if any chance.

Great trip

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Craig for a wonderful stay at your condo. We had a great time. We swam with the turtles every day right out in front of the place. The town is so quaint! The restaurants are really good and it was fun just biking around town. Thanks for all the extras also. It was great meeting you!

We stayed at Craigs place for the last 6 days of our trip and absolutely loved it.The condo was spacious for the 3 of us would have been fine with 4 as well. It was equipped with everything we needed. I really appreciated the view from the lanai and the fact that the beach was just steps away. I liked that the restaurants and shops were a short 5 minute drive or a 10- 15 walk. We were able to swim with turtles right from the beach in front of condo. Loved it and would definitely stay again. Not to mention Craig was also very accommodating.

Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

The location is amazing. You can walk downstairs to the beach, walk a few minutes to downtown, or drive anywhere you need in a few minutes. The kitchen is small, but perfect for people who prefer to make their own breakfast instead of going out for it every day. There is a full-sized fridge and oven, which is better than a lot of rentals. We didn't use the futon for sleeping, but if you had somebody sleeping on it, be aware that they'd have to walk through the bedroom to get to the bathroom. The complex is quiet and has a small laundry facility.

Haleiwa Surf Holiday Stay

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I stayed for three nights over the Christmas holiday and were looking for a nice place on the north with a view to relax. This place delivered and was exactly as advertised. We spent a lot of time on the balcony which has a great view and very close to the bench. There were lots of beach chairs and equipment in the unit which was appreciated. The kitchen had everything we needed as we did not plan to eat out much. The unit and the property were clean and well maintained. We used the community grills two of the nights and found it as a great place to meet people as well.

Craig was a wonderful host and provided insight on where/when to grocery shop and even suggested where to go to watch some surfing Christmas morning.

Overall, we had a great time and would highly recommend this unit to others.
