Haleiwa Studio Rental Photos and Description

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

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.

Nicole's studio was perfect. It was just minutes away from the beach, the foodtrucks, and the local market at the bottom of the hill. The property is accurately described through the pictures, and even better in person. The view of the sunset from the property is just gorgeous. Kitchen was great. Definitely the best place to rent for a great retreat! Nicole was so accommodating and great. I would highly recommend anyone's stay in the North Shore here.

Nice, quiet stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a nice quiet stay at the studio. it was easier to find on GPS, close to some of the excellent surfing beaches on North Shore. Groceries and food options were very close, just down the hill.

Studio itself is nice and cozy with kitchen well appointed for 2 people. We liked the enclosed outdoor shower with plenty of hot water for a decent shower at the end of the day at the beaches.

Just like it is listed, it is suitable for couples (2 people), but not for kids. Overall if you are looking for a quiet time on north shore, close to the beaches but away from the hustle bustle, then this is a good place to stay. Good views of the ocean from the property.

Cons: It is on a hill, so you have to drive down to the beaches (they are about 2 miles away). You absolutely need a car.

It is in a quiet residential neighborhood, so if you are a party animal, this is not the place for you.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

This is in a great location for exploring the North Shore. It was super handy having a full kitchen and a super market just down the road. Everything was very clean and the view was nice. It was great that there were beach towels to use as well. Overall a very comfortable stay :)
