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.
Hank, Pura and their son where very nice people, helping with whatever needed. They arranged so we could check in early on short notice.
The unit is small (for our family of 4), but more than enough for a couple. The standard was good, especially for a reasonable price. And it comes with a cozy backyard which we basically had for ourselves.
It's located about 2 minutes from the beach, which at times we had all to ourselves. Turtle sightings (in the water) on a daily basis. Descent beach for miles and miles, but limited swimming due to rocks in water. No surfing, but boogie boarding no problem.
But fear not, the unit is close (preferably by car) to cool North shore towns and great beaches for whatever activities one prefers.
Historic town of Haleiwa is right around the corner, with beach, restaurants, unique north shore stores and a great selection of various food trucks.
You get good value for what you pay, and the hosts are great. We all enjoyed our stay, and are happy we spent time in this part of the island for a different experience.
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.

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.
