About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2

This recently remodeled studio is nestled between two studio apartments, overlooking a large yard and enjoys amazing sunset and ocean views.

The studio has a new contemporary full kitchen, queen size bed, is nicely furnished and has a private covered outdoor shower. The owner occupied property is perfect for an individual or couple looking for an authentic North Shore experience. Three dogs and some cats reside on the property making this studio ideal for animal lovers.

Sometimes guests will hear the shower being turned on from the adjoining studio but the comfortable and peaceful surroundings far outweigh the the occasional neighbor activities.

Three night stays available only if the dates back up to another reservation, please ask for more information if needed.

About Nicole Puakea

I grew up on the North Shore and bought my family home 17 years ago. I love living on the North Shore, but also spend time in Honolulu working as a designer during the week.

Nicole Puakea purchased this studio in 1997

Great location on the North Shore!

  • 5 of 5

It was a little hard to find in the dark on the first night but much easier after that. We were surprised to see ocean when we went outside the first morning. This location is a short drive (down the hill) to a coffee shop, grocery store, the beach, food trucks, and lots of friendly people. The house is not air conditioned but does have ceiling fans. We had a small problem with ants in the bathroom. I rated it high for the location being close but far enough away that you don't have road noise. Very quiet.

This is a reason why I hate to use VRBO. The owner does not respond to emails or messages. It has been well over a month and I have not received any security deposit back. She does not answer any calls. Do yourself a favor and stay somewhere else to save yourself the head ache.

More than impressed...

  • 5 of 5

Loved it! A real hidden gem, peaceful with the magical touch of a tropical outdoor shower to finish the day -relaxing!

Had everything we needed. Would recommend and stay again. The owner was so easy to deal with and always available.
