Wonderful piece of Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I ( me, my husband, 12 y/o son, 18 y/o daughter) had a WONDERFUL 3-night stay in Haleiwa before our cruise! We arrived late afternoon, due to our scenic drive the LONG way around the island. The home is situated in a small, quiet, neighborhood, away from hotels and condos, and other "touristy" areas, but close enough to groceries and other necessities, as well as some of the best beaches and hiking areas. Everything was clean and welcoming, and Donna made us feel at home shortly after our arrival.

Both bedrooms were comfy. Our children particularly liked the two twin beds. As much as they love each other, having their OWN bed was a nice touch, and most of even the nicest hotels don't offer that. The bathroom was spotless, as was the kitchen, which had everything we needed to make meals anytime we chose. Donna included a "Member" card for the local grocery store, so we saved money buying what we needed to prepare breakfast, snacks, and even a couple of "dinners". The grill on the patio worked wonderfully, and we dined on the lanai one evening. LOVED having the use of a washer and dryer. Nice to be able to repack for our cruise with clean clothes.

We had rented a car and spent most of the day time hours out and about, and loved how close we were to everything. Polynesian Cultural Center: 20 minutes, Pearl Harbor: 30 minutes, Waimea Bay and Waimea Valley: 5 minutes, grocery store: 10 minutes, Sharks Cove (amazing snorkeling!): 10 minutes. Across from Sharks Cove were food trucks, GREAT fish tacos. Notebook on the table with info. on just about everything. Pick a direction, you'll find something to do without having to go far, without the rush of the city. So peaceful. We really didn't want to leave :)

Big bin of beach stuff on the side of the lanai: boogie boards, snorkel stuff, fins, chairs, and other assorted "beachy stuff", nice touch. Also had beach mats in the house.

Two days into our stay, the top floor guests arrived. We shared some hellos and friendly chatter, but other than that, we hardly noticed they were there. Meaning: no stomping or conversations coming through the ceiling.

We STRONGLY recommend this rental to anyone who is looking for time in Hawaii away from the city traffic and touristy stuff. This place is comfy, clean, and in a great location. Donna is a delightful hostess, and so knowledgeable about the area. When we come back to Oahu we will definitely try to book here again!

Relaxing and beautiful!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed from March 20th thru April 3rd. Donna is very welcoming and helpful. The vacation home is located in a very quiet neighborhood, which is so nice when relaxing on the lanai and listening to the ocean (which I did every morning and evening😁) My son is in the Army and stationed in Hawaii, so we had our own personal tour guide, but Donna is extremely knowledgeable about places to hike and any other attractions you might be interested in on the island. Also having a beach to walk to is GREAT!!! Since parking is usually hard to find! If my family and I were to come back to the island again, we would definitely stay here again. Thanks again Donna.

From your Michigan family!!!!

Our home is built on a lava outcrop on the south side of Waimea Bay. Near by is an ancient Hawaiian Heiau. Waimea Valley is a very special place with a long history of a thriving Hawaiian community.

During summer months Waimea Bay beach is a peaceful ocean playground. Relaxing along the aqua blue water and sandy beach of Waimea Bay will be a treasured experience.

During the winter months Waimea Bay has some of the largest surfing waves on Earth. This break is where the famous invitation only Eddie Aikau surf contest is held. The first place purse is $55,000 which goes to the surfer who has the highest points. In order for the contest to be held Waimea Bay needs to be breaking at minimum of 20 feet.

Other Activities: Hunting for Sea shells.

Golf: The Turtle Bay Hilton 15 minutes north of our unit features a Arnold Palmer course. This course is located along a beauitful beach.
