From the moment we stepped foot into this lovely home, we were in awe! I have never felt so at home as I have here. There is something very spiritual and inspiring about the Hau Tree and the beautiful location. We have found our Paradise on Earth! Mahalo for sharing with us your home. Our memories will last forever

Relaxing Vacation: It is hard not to relax in a place this beautiful. I've never been to Hawaii before - and what an amazing place to spend my first adventure. I saw some unbelievable surfing and I so much enjoyed the little blue lagoon. We'll be back

A perfect vacation get-away

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our week at the Hau Tree Beach House in October. I can't think of anything that would have made our stay better, except maybe a turtle or two on the beach, but there was a protected sea turtle area several beaches down. The October surf was starting to attract surfers - we watched them all day long from the porch right over the beach, where we also ate all our meals, including candle lit dinners. We swam & snorkeled in the little bay in front, protected by a reef. Snorkeling was OK, not great.

As opposed to the previous unhappy reviewer, we found the place very clean, nicely stocked with food staples & linens. Things were simple - what you'd expect at a family beach cottage. The caretaker was discreet when he used the laundry, entering from the outside door, keeping the door locked into our cottage. We finally found the Wi-Fi -(house to the left), but til then, went to the Coffee Gallery in Haleiwa. The Farmer's Market in Haleiwa (Sunday?) gave us ample local foods. Two large grocery stores supplied the rest.

We loved the low-key atmosphere - no condos, hotels or high rises (except Turtle Bay Resort 1/2 hr away - gated community with fancy restaurant). There were a number of local hikes and gardens, as well as famous surfing areas. Local restaurants were OK - nothing special, but nice to get out.

I'd recommend this as a quiet get-away, or for small families. The swimming area was protected - great for little kids. Less than an hour from the airport, it will be easy to return to! Mahalo!

Very Special

  • 5 of 5

Our family was on island for a week for a very special and personal reason. Staying at the Hau Tree beach house was the perfect place for us. Communication with the owner, Trish, was excellent. She was very helpful and accommodating with our family situation. The house was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed from appliances to towels. The location was great and was literally just a few feet from the ocean. You basically had a private beach. Close to everything. I would recommend this rental to anyone. We would stay here again, for sure.

Dream Holiday Spot

  • 5 of 5

Amazing location, the best we've ever stayed. Waves were huge for our entire stay, which made sitting and watching the surf fantastic. Beds were comfortable, kitchen had everything we needed, Weber char grill was great for cooking steaks that we ate under the Hau tree. Close to everything on the North Shore. Great to get out of the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. Communication was great. Would love to stay here again.

You can't get too much closer to the beach

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a great location and is a perfect spot for a couple or small family. I have rented a lot from VRBO and Air BNB and Trish is one of the most gracious and helpful host's we have dealt with. After rushing all day , a long flight, very late arrival and after stopping at the store and buying a bottle of wine it was great to just chill on the porch and listen to the ocean. Bring binoculars, there are quite a few surfers to watch at various time. Trish also let us stay late on our check out date so we could hang at the beach instead of aimlessly wonder around and kill time until our 11:00 flight. Very much appreciated, especially with a 6 year old. We will be back....

The photos really don't do it justice. Loved it..

  • 5 of 5

OMG this place is like heaven on earth. We stayed there Sept and Oct 2014 and its my goal in life to get back ASAP. Very comfy with my family of 4 and loved surfing everyday, showers under the sunset and swimming with Turtles and Sea Horses right out the front. The family were very easy to deal with and the value was dope..
