I am a practicing Doctor of Acupuncture. My wife owned the first and longest opened boutique of Haleiwa. We just closed it after 47 years! Speaks Spanish, French, German and English. We have lived in Hawaii for over 40 years. Our favorite mottos: Beauty is Love made manifest and To thine own Self be true.
Why Rick chose Haleiwa
The open floor plan gives you room to breathe. No small, boxy rooms, plenty of space and beautiful view. Large deluxe bed, additional bed in TV room, an acre and half of green lawn, no crowds or traffic passing by and cool Hawaiian breezes at night to refresh you and caress you.

April 2019 visit
We found Inga and Rick's guest home to be precisely as described, and their accommodation to our arrival/departure schedules was very much appreciated. The spacious VRBO is well maintained and fully appointed with appliances, basic supplies, beach gear, and conveniences to make relaxing easy. Owners Rick and Inga were terrific hosts, and they made sure we had everything needed for an enjoyable week on our 50th anniversary. We never needed to use the air conditioning as several ceiling fans and louvered windows allowed good air circulation during day and night. We were delighted to discover that the guest home was outrageously quiet compared to closer to North Shore and Turtle Bay, where we had stayed the prior week. We would highly recommend this VRBO for its location, relative seclusion, and accommodating hosts.
Really nicely appointed open space guest house next to the owners home (Rick and Inge) but very private. Completely private lot surrounded by thick natural hedges and vegetation with a open and closing front drive in gate. It was a wonderfully peaceful sanctuary after tackling the bustle and insanity of the North Shore! The house is very well appointed with everything you can need (except food of course) and Rick and Inge were perfect hosts who were very hospital, kind and respectful of our privacy. We loved our stay there.
Beautifully built and creatively appointed, the large private cottage sits in a neighborhood removed from the busy North Shore. A lovely place for a quiet couple who want a retreat. Bird watching is wonderful and the hot/cold outdoor shower is an added perk. For those who love cooking, the kitchen is complete and well equipped. Foodland Market is close by.
Terrific place to style to immerse yourself in the North Shore way of life!
Location: Terrific distance from all North Shore spots and Foodland Shopping. Property is up against a valley on back boundary and located on a street that dead ends. Very Quiet and convenient.
Condition: Very clean and very nicely decorated. Flooring, cabinets, countertops are very nice and in great condition. Drawers have self closers-which keeps noise down for the early riser.
Amenities: Bed is terrific. Washroom is great. Outside shower stall is really nice for returns from beach....although it is private enough you could just take the daily shower out there and be secluded. Kitchen has all you might need for cooking. Beach chairs, umbrellas, ice chest, boogie boards etc provided for days on the beach.
Rick was very helpful and responsive before and during our stay.
Romantic and close to beaches
Hopefully to come back again and again
