I stayed with my family from England, mom, brother and sister in law for 2 weeks in April,
The house is very comfortable and clean, air conditioned, very comfy beds, big flat screen TV with cable and high speed internet. It has an open floor plan in the kitchen/living room with everything you need. (They had a tea pot for the stove top but it would be great to add an electric style tea kettle for guests like us from England!)
It has a really lovely deck, that's perfect to sit out on with a book and a glass of vino, there's also a hot tub on the deck too which was really nice to have. There's also a hammock in the front garden, if you want to catch some shade.
The house is in a small gated community with only a few other houses. Access is via convenient key code so no keys to carry and nice and secure.
The house couldn't be in a better location, just off the ocean side of the main road that goes along the North Shore and literally a 2 minute walk from the house to the beach. The beach is super quiet but totally safe and regularly patrolled by the lifeguard on a quad bike.
The water was warm, and we were lucky to see a big swell while there. I've never seen bigger waves in my life than we did here one night while enjoying a sunset! There are also some volcanic tide pools nearby to check out the tiny crabs and other types of fish swimming around.
They also provide lots of other extras which where useful, beach cruiser bikes, boogie boards, beach chairs, and some snorkeling equipment, which came in handy as there is a cove very close by where you can snorkel.
Location-wise, there are a lot of different gourmet food trucks where you can try local delicacies. We liked the Hawaiian style garlic shrimp and the local caught fish tacos were also very good. A bit further on from the food stands there is a supermarket called Food Land, make sure that you write down the house home phone # as you will get up to 30% off at the store with it!
Tim also provides a book with things to see and do, I highly recommend the botanical gardens at Waimea Bay, lots of movies and TV shows were filmed there like LOST. We also loved Kualoa Ranch, we did the 90 minute jungle tour in a 4x4 Jeep and saw the sets from Jurassic World and the new Jumanji movie. Very cool!
We finished off our trip with a luau at the Polynesian center, I'd highly recommend doing this... it made for a great day, great food and entertainment.
We had a great vacation, and made a lot of memories, the house was great, Tim was very helpful with any questions we had.
Would definitely stay here again A+++
Loved this place, my wife and I did not want to leave and cannot wait to go back next year. Peaceful, relaxing and plenty to do.
Staying at this home was wonderful. It is in a fantastic location and has been looked after wonderfully. It has many utensils and so many other nice touches that are thought of that you don't usually get at other places. This is not a party house but a home that is to be respected and looked after. I stayed here with family and it was perfect. We all look on our stay here very fondly and dream of coming again one day soon.
This Rental was Awesome with everything you need to help you feel right at home.
Excellent location as it is walking distance to some of the best surf spots in the world and one of the most beautiful beaches. I usually go to Kauai for the beaches and slower pace vacation and was definitely impressed with this place. Nearby is Foodland and excellent food trucks to grab a quick and delicious meal. Right down the street is Sharks cove which has excellent snorkelling. House is stocked with allot of beach gear,masks,snorkels,boogie boards,and 4 cruiser bikes. I found the bikes the best way to get around the north shore from Sharks cove all the way to Sunset Beach and beyond on the great bike path. Also there is a really nice washer dryer and new appliances. The Jacuzzi after along day with a cold beverage was nice!
Would highly recommend this house to families, couples or anyone wanting to enjoy the North Shore.
This unbelievable rental was impeccably stocked and an overall delight to stay at. Highly recommending this place was be an understatement. Everything that was promised in the reviews delivered and then some. Close to the beach, close to shopping center and a beautiful neighborhood. Owners are always quick to answer any request you may have. Highly recommend staying here over anywhere in Waikiki.
This beach house was close to many beaches and shops. There are plenty of places to eat or a grocery store very close by. The house was stocked very well and was very clean. We had a great time relaxing in the hot tub and even grilled burgers. I would recommend this beach house to anyone that would like a home away from home.
The property was just as described. The rooms were really nice and all the amenities we could have asked for were available: bikes, boogey boards, snorkling equipment, the hot tub, etc. We were really close to a gorgeous and less traveled beach as well as just down the street from a nice snorkling cove, the grocery store and food trucks (so much fun). It was great.
