This is the place

  • 5 of 5

Our main purpose was to relax and learn to surf. At first we were not very focused on the house, because we were not expecting to spend much time on it (only to sleep). But then we arrived to this cottage and fall in love... with her and with each other again :) The place is wonderfull, you have everything you need inside and outside... and you will stay in the famous "7 mile miracle" of surf. Use your bikes and explore all the beaches near the cottage, but if you don't want to exercise than just walk 2 minutes and relax on the beautifull beach a few meters away from the house. Lovely small town Hale'iwa is just 10 minutes drive but again if you don't want go that much far, you have it all just walking distance from the house: Foodland, Starbucks and some nice small restaurants. Last but not least, Anna and Aaron were great and gave us the tips we needed when we asked for it.

We hope to visit you again soon...

Nice stay!

  • 4 of 5

Aaron was great to deal with. Always very quick to respond before arrival and very available as he lives next door. The house was very clean with modern furnishings and amenities. Our 13 yr old daughter slept comfortably on the extra deep couch in the main room. The washer and dryer and a/c were great perks. One small thing: if you're very tall, the loft's angled ceilings are a bit of a hazzard. We tall types hit our heads numerous times and tended to walk bent over while we were up there. Luckily, most of the time up there was spend sleeping. :)

Perfect landing for a chilled beach holiday

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic beach home feeling at this place hosted by Aaron & Anna.

Well thought out (night light for stairs), clean & organised with everything needed at our fingertips. From beach towels to DVDs, fans, & blankets. Clear communication and instructions provided.

Anna came around with an umbrella for us to use.. let me know re nearby yoga classes.. warm and lovely to feel welcomed.

Sunset beach is a few minutes walk away.. crystal clear water & incredible sand.. pristine & perfect for a relaxing time.

Location also a great base for driving around the island & exploring other beaches and areas.

Although the kitchen equipment is all there including a bbq on the balcony, we chose to walk to the food trucks located a few minutes away. Ample choice but the Thai was outstanding. Food land supermarket is also within walking distance so anything needed is really convenient.

Recommend staying here and would definitely come back. Enjoyed every moment. Mahalo🏝

Great experience with this cottage rental

  • 5 of 5

This was a first visit to North Shore Oahu so there was a lot to take in. But having stayed at many other rentals off the mainland, this one was very nice for us. It's located close to many things that will take a car plus many beach trips we did well with the bikes and when we were lazy it was short walk to Foodland, nearby foodtrucks and a great stretch of beach that was not very crowded at all, mostly locals.

The home itself is very well equipped and we were able to use the TV without hassle, make meals, BBQ, wash clothes and relax after a long day sightseeing. Aaron was always available and reachable throughout our stay and yet it also felt like we had the property to ourselves. He also gave great advice on spots to see, places to eat. One suggestion was Haleiwa Joe's in Haleiwa. We might have passed this one up since it looked too popular from the reviews. But it was by far our favorite place. The apps and entrees were incredible, the drinks (try the "moe"rita, passionfruit margarita) were unusually tasty and the views from our table of the harbor were truly memorable. Service, like most we found throughout our visit, was over the top whether we were at a 4star restaurant or a food truck, "mahalo" is not just a word. One last note on the property, it felt extremely secure with a private gate and a remote and not visible from the street.

Without repeating what many others have said, it is true this place does look too good to be true. But it's for real and anyone who is ready for a north shore vacation will truly enjoy the comfort of a private home in paradise. Probably the only thing we didn't expect about this trip, but had nothing to do with this cottage, was how necessary our car was for what we wanted to do. The beaches are all so different, some very swimmable and others very dangerous. So it takes a little trial and error to find the beaches that work for you. Plus, we found driving to Lanikai for snorkeling/kayaying/hiking, Kailua for the beach and a fantastic fresh poke shop (Hibachi's) and other areas closer to Honolulu was very necessary. We didn't spend one minute at Waikiki or Honolulu other than the airport and had a great time exploring using Yelp and locals as our guides.

Thank you Aaron and Anna for a truly memorable visit to your beautiful home.

はじめてのバケーションレンタルで大当たり!

  • 5 of 5

今から丁度20年前に友人とはじめてこの地を訪れて以来ずっと、いつかノースショアでバケーションレンタルをしてみたいと思っていましたが、今回、夫の54歳の誕生祝いを口実に計画した旅行で、幸運にもアーロンとアンナのコテージに滞在できる機会に恵まれ、短期間でしたが念願のステイが実現しました。インターネットのお陰ともいえると思います。

コテージまでの道順や、ゲートとコテージの施錠等に関する案内は、オーナーからチェックインの1週間程前に案内されたものにわかりやすく記載されていました。

コテージへ通じるゲートは、Kamehameha Hwy 沿いにはなく、Kam Hwyに並行して海側を走るKe iki Rd 沿いにあります。ゲートを通過して左側2軒目がアーロンのコテージです。コテージの前には十分なスペースのゲスト専用駐車場が用意されています。

コテージのあるKe iki 地区は、一日中とても静かです。

Ke ikiビーチまで徒歩1分、サンセットビーチまでも近く、Ke iki 地区から徒歩や自転車で移動できる道が通っています。Foodlandがコテージから徒歩数分のところにあるのは非常に便利。ハレイワタウンや、最寄りのゴルフ場までもいずれも車で10分程度と、立地面で申し分なし。

コテージに一歩足を踏み入れると、オーナーに歓迎されていることがすぐに伝わってきます。

室内は、オーナーのセンスで美しく整えられています。

私達は日本から持ち込んだスリッパを使っていましたが、床はとても綺麗なので裸足で過ごすのも気持ちいいと思います。

建物1階部分はガレージ、コテージ入口は外階段を上がった2階にあるため風通しよく、室内はサラっと乾いています。

窓の数が十分あるので部屋の中はとても明るいです。窓に取り付けられた可動式のシェードが強い日差しや視線を遮るのと同時に、冷房効果も高めています。

シャワー使用後の湿気を逃がすために、バスルームにある小窓をしばらく開けていましたが、網戸もしっかり張られていたので、室内に虫が入ってくる心配はありません。

照明は、部屋のどの位置も明るすぎず暗すぎず、適度に調整されています。

エアコンの効きもしっかりしていますが、吹き出し口からの風が直接あたらないよう考えられた位置に取り付けられています。エアコンから出る冷たい風をシーリングファンが部屋全体に拡散し、エアコンとの併用効果を発揮しています。

快適と感じられるところは、実際は配慮ある計算がなされていることが多いように思います。

このコテージのバスルームには、ウォシュレットが装備されていることにも驚きました。

ハワイに限らず海外宿泊施設では、極一部のホテルのしかも限られた部屋にしかウォシュレットは備わっていないのが普通です。日本人観光客の多いオアフでさえ、ハレクラニや、最近日本のOkuraがオーナーになってから全室に装備されたカハラホテルなど、他にも徐々に増えてはきていますが、全体からするとまだほんの一部だそうです。

Wi-Fiが快適に使用できたのは大きかったです。

スマホは当然、仕事上ノートパソコンも持ち込みますが、今回、旅行用タブレットの代わりにと新規調達しておいた6インチスマホを、出発前のドタバタで未開封のまま持ちこんだので、SIMのアクティベート以前に、初期設定が必要でした。

まったくの余談ですが、2016年2月現在、Nexus6P×READY SIMの相性バッチリです。通話利用時におやっ?と思う動作があり、100%の再現性がありましたが、わかっていれば対応には困らない程度のものです。日本との通話はもっぱら別のスマホを利用していたので、支障ありませんでした。READY SIMはオアフのほぼ全域をカバーしていると思います。

過去、Verizonで何度か苦労した経験のあるアクティベートですが、READY SIMは評判通り簡単で30分もかからないくらいです。夫の方は、かつての職業がシステムだったというのもあるかもしれませんが、空港から直接レンタカーでハレイワに到着後、私がちょっと目を離した隙に終えてしまっていました。

話しが飛びましたが、コテージは設備面で必要なものは全て揃っています。

バスルームやキッチン周りに備え付けの消耗品も十分です。

コテージのオーナー兼管理人のアーロンとアンナは、コテージに隣接する母屋にお住まいです。彼らのサポートは大変心強いです。親しみやすく、とても心地よい絶妙な距離感で細やかな気配りをしてくださいます。

清潔、機能的で、コテージ内部は細部までメンテナンスが行き届いています。

セキュリティ、全ての設備とそのコンディション、サービス、総合的に質の高さを実現・維持できているのは、このコテージがオーナーによる直接管理だからではないかと思います。

コテージに関する評価は文句なしの星5つにしましたが、アーロンとアンナの真のホスピタリティーと、アーロンの話す日本語に、出来ることならもう1つ星を追加して、星6つにしたいところです。

私たち夫婦は一緒に過去5度ノースショアを訪れ、このエリアにある大型ホテルに滞在したこともあり、とても快適でしたが、このコテージのなんともしっくり落ち着く感は、他では得られないと思います。言葉で表現するのは難しいのですが、滞在してみるとわかると思います。

はじめてのバケーションレンタルの利用で、このコテージに出会えたのはとてもラッキーでした。

リピーターはもちろん、ノースショアははじめてという方にも、また、英語を流暢に操る人も、私のようにそうでない人にも、是非お勧めしたいコテージです。

Mahalo Aaron and Anna!

Private Sunset Beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 10 days, the cottage was just as advertised, immaculate clean and all the amenities you need for a fabulous vacation on the North Shore.

Aaron and Anna the owners live right next door, they are available for your questions or if you need anything, wonderful friendly hosts. Just look at the photos, read the descriptions and amenities, everything is exactly as described.... Fully equipped kitchen, beautiful bathroom, comfortable bed, bikes, coolers, beach chairs, beach towels, laundry, everything you need for a great getaway. Many famous beaches are a few minutes walk or a short bike ride away. Owners are happy to chat and help with directions, advise on places to go, things to see. If we ever get back to North Shore we would happily stay here again. Thank you Aaron and Anna for sharing your beautiful cottage.

Spend a day or two in Waikiki if you must, but don't miss the beaches and waves of the North Shore. We got to see three amazing days of the Pipeline Masters surf contest!
