We stayed here for 4 nights on our trip to the North Shore. This house is the perfect place to explore the North Shore from. Pias instructions are easy to follow and the house was easy to find. Be warned you will need a car. The house is clean and quirky. It has everything you need for cooking and there's a large grocery store 5 minutes up the road for all the supplies you could ever want. The House is literally right on the beach and there are beaches and coves all along the shoreline to be explored. Pia gives great advice on the best places to find turtles and places to go snorkling. We were left to our own devices but she was nearby if we had any questions. Crispy Grindz food truck up the road was awesome for food. Snorkling in sharks cove was very cool. We spent a lot of time sitting on turtle beach but no turtles to be seen, Pia will direct you to the best beach to see them on, there we saw loads. The North Shore is very relaxed and quiet after dark. Its the perfect place to unwind and spend your days exploring the beautiful surroundings there's beauty spot after beauty spot to be discovered. We will be returning.
Pia was very welcoming and hospitable! We wanted a vacation away from other tourists, and it felt so nice to be in a location on the beach And the only people you run into are locals. The neighbors are all surfers and fun to talk to. Very comfortable home - a fun surfer flat, and Pia was perfect in making sure we had everything we needed but also giving us space.
The perfect place for us to relax after busy L.A. and Waikiki.
Pia is a great and very helpful host.
She had loads of tipps what to do on the north shore, we could use one of her surfboards to catch some waves and she also nursed one of us after a little accident.
The location of the studio is unbeatable, just a few steps and you are at world famous sunset beach. Just a short drive to a lot of other great beaches and surf spots.
Definitely check out the food from the various food trucks!
Pia is wonderful and helpful. The place is humble and homely with paradise at the doorstep.
Perfect escape frome the busy streets of Honolulu. Would definitely recommend.
A car is pretty important this end of the island and there are plenty of great food options near by (just ask Pia).
Hope to return
Pia was a great host. We couldn't find the place at first, so she came out looking for us. She also gave us tons of tipps and ideas of things to do. Her place was amazing. Just up on the most beautiful beach we have ever seen. And we totally fell in loce with the housecat orange
The location right on the beach was fantastic. Pia was a most helpful and gracious host. She gave us great tips on where to go and checked in with us to make sure all was well. The community is very friendly and safe. The bed is a bit on the small side but very comfortable. We very much felt like we had a local experience rather than a touristy one which is exactly what we were looking for. We enjoyed making friends with Orange our adopted porch kitty. Thank you!!!
My husband and I stayed with our 9 yrs old son at Pia's place for 3 days.
We arrived very late at night as our flight was delayed and Pia was very kind and understanding.
The place feels like a beach cottage for surfers with artistic accents and Pia did a good job with the decorations and colors. If you are looking for luxury this place is not for you as Pia'a mentioned also.
My son felt sorry for leaving Orange,
thank you Pia for being such a great host!

About the Host, Pia
I am Swedish and have lived and worked in US half of my 53y life.
I moved to Hawaii for love of my now husband and for the Beauty of this land.
The first impression of the nature I now live in has profoundly changed me.
We are avid hikers,snorklers,surfers and (website hidden) real passion is in Gardening and Horseback riding.Our lifestyle is very quiet,tranquil and peaceful.
I have lived in Big Cities,N.Y. Chicago,Miami,Barcelona,Stockholm and my husband is from Paris...when i get back to "Them",for work or family that I love...I always miss it, here BEAUTIFUL HAWAII.
My many friends through life (in Many places) have nicknamed me International Hostess.I love cooking and getting people together.
I will guide my guests to the best foods,hikes and sights to see on this Island and make sure their visit will be an unforgettable one...AND TO COME BACK AGAIN!!
