Very private and quiet location. Central to all the fun on the North Shore. If you're looking for a comfortable place to relax after fun in the sun, this is for you! This is where the locals live!
Live like the locals! We love our small community and everything it offers.
We wanted to say thank you so much for this lovely week here in Waialua! We enjoyed it so much to have our own home for a week. You were great hosts and thank you very much. We hope to see you again.
For a pricey cleaning fee, the place should be better cleaned. If it had a deep cleaning, I would have felt more comfortable. Not exactly as it looks in the photos- needs some love. Disappointing, and not as private as we would have liked. The best feature of the place was our friendly host and his adorable son. They loaned us some of their personal snorkeling gear and we enjoyed their conversation immensely.

Definitely met our needs with being away from the tourist life. The location isn't to far from recreational activities.
We were welcomed and treated like family. We had great trade winds so it wasn't too hot as there is no a/c but we didn't need it. Had our own private entrance which was nice.
Having a local farmers market was a huge plus.
We throughly enjoyed our time and conversations with the family and look forward to coming back!!
Fantastic place to stay for a few days. Great location near Haleiwa and easy to find/get to. I found the bed comfortable, big bathroom, stocked kitchen to cook morning breakfast eggs. Great to have off street parking and easy/private access to the studio. Recommended and will acquire again on my next trip to the island.
Coming off of a long journey, this quiet bungalow was a perfect place to unwind. The owners (Pura and Hank) were gracious and welcoming, and very conscious of our privacy. It was a 2 minute walk to a beach which was very sparsely used, and seemingly mostly by locals. We felt very comfortable coming and going at our leisure. We rented a car, and the parking situation was perfect with a spot right next to the back entrance for guest use. We didn't cook, but there was a well stocked kitchen if we had decided to do some cooking. We chose to take advantage of the myriad of dining options in Haleiwa (about a 7 minute drive). If you are looking to stay in a serene place away from the bustle of Honolulu, this place is great.
Be patient and read.This is a true story, even if it seems to be a nightmare. It happens from 01/25 to 02/8 2016
Day 1: we arrive in Waialua after a 22 hours trip from Italy at 8 p.m. We call Pura and she tell us nobody is home. She is in LA and Hank is flying back (unfortunately Hank’s mom is gone and they went to her funeral). We tell her we’ll wait for him to come home, but she answer that our place is already occupied because she made a mistake about the booking and she offer us to go to a beautiful hotel in Laie.
Day 2 : in the late afternoon we come back to Waialua and we meet Hank. He kindly shows us home. Outside is almost dark and inside the lights are very low, but everything seems to be ok. There’s no closet, so you can’t hang anything.
We try to connect to internet but we can’t find any info about wifi, we text Hank and he answers he doesn’t know, we should ask to Pura. So we text her but she doesn’t answer us.
Day 3 : We ask again about wifi in the morning but Pura doesn’t answer us. We spend all day outside and in the evening, just before to go to sleep, an awful scary giant spider comes out from a picture hanging on a wall of the bedroom. One of us is arachnophobic and the spider is big like a tennis ball: we are in a panic! After about 2 hours we finally kill it, but we can’t sleep all night, thinking about haw many giant spiders can live there with us.
This is a private home in a quite area. The beach is just steps out the back gate. Central to all of the North Shore's famous beaches and surf spots.
