About the property

1 Bedroom, Kitchenette, 1 full bath, outdoor shower, sleeps 2

Nestled in the quite fishing town of Hau’ula, this 1 bedroom is the perfect getaway for a couple. This newly remodeled rental, with it’s own private yard and beach has everything you need. It’s a 5 minute drive to the Polynesian Culture center and a 15 minute drive to the heart of North Shore where the big waves are. But in front our our place is all reef where you can snorkel right outside the door. This is where the locals come for the weekend to get away from it all.

This is the side of the island for sunrises. Chances are you can take a beach walk in the morning and only see a soul or two.

We are local kamaaina. We are not investors from outside the islands. We can give you lots of local tips and help you plan a wonderful vacation. Find out where the best beaches are, spectacular hiking trails to waterfalls, local art and crafts shows, nearest farmer's market to buy fresh fruits and vegetables, the best restaurants where locals eat.

There’s lots of local farms nearby selling fresh organic fruits and vegetables, Tiki carvers on the road selling their craft and a world renowned golf course (Turtle Bay Resort) only minutes away.

Quiet and Cozy Paradise

  • 4 of 5

My fiancee and I stayed here for 8 nights the last week of February. It was perfect for 2 people, anymore than that would be too cramped. The kitchen is perfect for cooking simple meals, was great to have a BBQ. Loved the location as we prefer the vibe of the North Shore. The property owner was prompt with replies and gave us some great tips. We loved that it's right on the ocean. Would definitely book again.

It made our trip amazing

  • 5 of 5

We loved it. It was perfect for just the two of us! The views were awesome. I loved the hammock and outside shower. Would definitely stay here again. It was nothing fancy but felt like our home away from home, not just like we were tourists

On The Water

  • 5 of 5

Great view, right on the water. The weather unfortunately didn't cooperate while we were there, but it would have been really easy to swim/snorkel and paddle just outside the place. The place was quiet at night and felt private. Reiko was very responsive with any questions we had. The kitchen was simple, but enough to get the job done. Thank you.

A quiet corner of North Shore to relax in

  • 5 of 5

This property is very beautiful, quiet, and more than enough space for two. The yard and sandy deck above the water has some privacy and perfect for sunrises or sunsets although it can get windy in the winter.

It is only a short drive from all the main north shore beaches and towns and a relatively quick drive to all points south, traffic permitting.

We had no trouble checking in and out or communicating with our hosts although we did not meet them in person. We did meet their lovely grey cat that welcomed us home every evening.

I would love to stay here again someday.

The view makes the stay...

  • 3 of 5

The space was adequate for the two of us but its actually looks smaller than the pictures convey. Although the hosts and property manager were aware of our arrival date, it was disappointing to walk into the muggy space and to plug in and turn on all appliances (refrigerator, tv and air conditioner). A nice welcome touch would have been to have these appliances turned on already (not the television).

Although there was a property manager that you can contact, we were not able to reach him via cell phone. We did not realize until towards the end of our stay that he actually resided in the front house. We had to contact the owner via email and because of her job, responses took a day to be answered. There was an ant problem along the window sill and kitchen sink area. The window sill problem was addressed a day later after I notified the owner and I didn't even bother reporting the kitchen sink problem as it would take yet another day to be addressed. The two bowls that were provided; one had a crack in it and I cut my finger on it. It would have been appreciated to have adequate supplies for the two of us instead of "just enough". We needed access to the washer and dryer (which we were informed was available to us) but the door was locked and we had to wait for the property manager to be contacted to open the door. A day later the door was open and we were able to do one load. When we went to do another load the next night, there was laundry in the wash and dryer (which was already done but had not been removed) and to be respectful, we did not want to touch someone else's laundry.

The last time we needed to use the laundry facilities, the front entrance gate was locked and we were not able to get into the yard to access the laundry facilities. When we tried the property manager, he answered and was not pleased that he was being troubled. Sadly my understanding of a property manager who states that he is kama'aina (local) did not display the aloha spirit we were looking for. Apologies if our menial requests put you out.

The best thing going for this place is the backyard view, but there is no access to the beach from there. There is access to the waters for snorkeling (and yes there were honu (turtles) in the area which was a nice touch, and even though you have that small backyard to sit and and lounge, the access to the waters is shared by other properties. We wanted to LOVE this place but it fell short
