About the property

Sunny studio perfect for two!

Nestled in a tranquil Mokuleia neighborhood, this newly remodeled and fully furnished studio duplex is in a great location to enjoy Hawaii's best coastline. This is the perfect spot for travelers who want their own private space while allowing them to use the rest of their budget to seek out all the adventures Hawaii has to offer. The studio has air-conditioning, a full kitchen, laundry facilities, queen-sized comfortable bed, a spacious bathroom and an outdoor seating area for you to enjoy food or drinks.

Only a couple minutes walk away from an exclusive secluded beach, this home offers highly preferred access to the North Shore's best surfing, kayaking, snorkeling, diving, and fishing. A short drive will bring you to horse-back riding, glider rides, skydiving, hiking, and mountain biking. A bicycle path connects your home to convenient shopping and to historical Waialua/Haleiwa town (about a 20 minute ride). We have two beach-cruiser type bicycles for you to use free of charge if you want to take advantage of the leisurely lifestyle and avoid some of the parking hassles that can be associated with popular beaches. Also provided for your use are masks & snorkels, beach chairs and mats and surfboards. We want you to use your precious vacation time for your vacation, not to seek all these things out!

In addition to the great snorkeling at the beach nearby, there are also great waves for surfers, kayakers and body-boarders. Four surf breaks offer waves most times of the year - Silva Channels, Rodgers, Glass Doors, and Fujis are all within walking and paddling distance and visible from the beach access.

Our house is connected to the studio, however, you have a very private entrance on the opposite side of the house of our own entrance. Our driveway is also separate. You have guaranteed off-street parking and a secluded walkway to your door. You might hear some of our activities but we are generally quiet and are very respectful with our guests. We are also around a bit, and will enthusiastically give you tips and ideas for what to do and where to explore if you need it. But if you don't need anything from us, then you can easily go your entire stay without seeing us.

Our neighborhood is like that of a quiet country beach town. Small families, quiet residents, and acres of farmland all nestled up to a beautiful beach with clear turquoise waters. You can enjoy a stroll on the beach while watching the sunset, turtles, passing whales and occasional monk seals. In the summer months, perfect for snorkeling, surfing and swimming. In the winter months it is one of the surf meccas of the world with huge waves up to 30 feet, surf contests, and incredible surfers from around the world.

We are just out of range of buses, but we do have bikes you can use so you can live like a local. Haleiwa town, with great restaurants and boutiques is about a 20 minute bike ride away (all flat). Our beautiful beach is about a 2 minute walk. But in Hawaii is it definitely best to have a car as our public transportation system is not that good.

The start of the bike path is a mile away but you can ride along our quiet neighbor street to get there. Once on the bike path you will be able to access the quaint Haleiwa shops, cafes, restaurants, surf contests and beaches that stretch for miles along the coastline. For reference, Waimea Bay is about a 20 minute car ride, to get to Waikiki/Honolulu area is about 45 minutes.

About Scott Davis

Our names are Scott and Suzi and we are an active family of three. We've been living on this street for over 20 years and love it still so much that we decided to raise our family here. We surf, swim, snorkel, hike, fly at Dillingham Airfield, bike ride, etc. We love to be outside and we met out surfing in front of our house. We are happy to share this beautiful island with anyone who wants to experience it. We live on the property and are happy to answer questions about local spots, lend you sports gear, and generally be helpful. Or you could go your entire stay without seeing us at all, if privacy is what you prefer.

Scott Davis purchased this studio in 1988

Why Scott Davis chose Waialua

Suzi grew up on this property, and it is situated directly across the street from the beach, giving you access to a private, secluded beach brimming with turtles, beautiful coral reef and wildlife. There is hardly ever anyone on the beach, except for a few surfers paddling out to catch epic waves. We also love the neighborhood, the people who live here, and the community. This is where you come to experience true paradise.

What makes this studio unique

The benefits to this property are its proximity to the beach (such a short walk!) while still being affordable, making it possible to stay within a budget and enjoy this private neighborhood. It's far enough away from the North Shore tourist bustle to relax on your own without the crowds, while just being a short drive away to enjoy the surf contests, festivals, shopping and Hawaiian events in Haleiwa.

Quiet, Easy to get to, close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

We arrived after noon and were welcome to check in early. It's a small room and will almost be a crowd with two people. It's cozy. We enjoyed the location but didn't use all the amenities that were offered. I rode a bike into town and back. We'd come back for sure!

Great location, felt like a local

  • 5 of 5

The studio is tidy and well equipped with everything we needed to cook meals and be super comfy.

The street is gorgeous, the beach down the road beautiful.

Loved being able to use the bikes, we rode into Haleiwa- a longer but east ride to view the surf comp.

We also loved the snorkels and appreciated early check in.

Close enough to everything on the north shore, but far enough away to feel like you’re enjoying a secret.

My husband and I loved our stay at Anna Banna. It had everything we needed and was a great get away from the city.

Had a great stay in the north shore at Anna Bananas.

  • 4 of 5

Location was amazing. Easy to get into town and to different beaches. Quiet location and very comfy bed. Place is big enough for 2 people would be crowded with more then that. The room has everything you need and fun things for the beach. Love having an outdoor shower.

Had a great stay and would come back!!
