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...

Relaxed and easy stay minutes walk away from the beach, few minutes bike ride away from the supermarket, the home is well set up for 2 people with all the amenities you need for a worry free stay. Owners Aaron and Anna are happy to answer questions for you. Look forward to going back one day. Cheers Matt
I stayed at Aaron's rental during a 6 week stay on the North Shore. The rental was clean, quiet and best part was how Aaron treated you. He made sure that every detail was taken care of - beach towels, chairs, coolers and bikes. Great location to Hale'iwa, Waimea and Turtle Bay. Food carts everywhere - plenty within walking distance. Teds bakery for great food and pastries, Foodland and a coffee shop. The rental is gated and beach access is only 2 doors away to a huge expanse of sand, ocean and great tide pools. Highly recommend this spot. Thanks Aaron!
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. :)
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🏝
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.
