2 miles north to Turtle Bay Resort, 7 miles west to Haleiwa. Ted's Bakery (world famous, is 1/2 mile away) Foodland super market< 3 miles on a great bike path. A couple of small eateries and food trucks close. We go to the health food store in Haleiwa almost daily, open markets on thurs. and sat. close by and if you want to carpool, hop in!
Set on 2 acres of tropical gardens, with fruit trees and flowers everywhere. The rear deck is shaded by a huge Banyan and Mango, perfect spot to watch the waves roll in at Sunset Beach. There is an upstairs bedroom with a small office looking out over the ocean. Wireless internet, cable, and kitchenette with everything (except an oven) you need for meal prep. A communal yoga deck is situated next to the main house that we love to share with travelers who are interested in practicing with us.

We have friends who are the best instructors around if you need lessons. We are avid surfers, (tow, kite, sup too!) yogis, and vegetarian for the most part. We like to keep it as peaceful as we can up here for our guests and ourselves. The experience has been incredible for many, we are great hosts with years of experience to get you dialed in on the North Shore. If this all sounds good we look forward to hearing from you. Aloha

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • My wife and I live on island and wanted to have a very short staycation on the north shore. I saw this and John's other listings on here and knew we would have to stay here. The place was so surreal because you're up in the jungle. There are cool little geckos running around eating the bugs. There is WiFi so at night we got to watch some Netflix to unwind after spending hours at the beach and running around north shore. John was so friendly and would respond to e-mails promptly. Will come again for sure!!

  • Great location, right down the road from Sunset Beach. Stayed two nights and it was perfect for checking out all of the different beaches in the area, including sunset, pipeline, and Waimea bay.

    The cabin was one of a kind, overlooking the beach from the side of the mountain. Comfortable and secluded.

    Bikes and boards were readily available, I personally didn't take advantage of the boards but that was after watching the intensity of the ocean on the North Shore in Winter.

  • This place is just SO COOL! Amazing location and great people! Highly Recommend for all you real surfers and wannabees (like us). The view over Sunset Beach is worth the price alone! John and all are just the best peeps you will ever meet and provide all the gear you will need plus instruction and lessons from top North Shore Gurus! John's description is spot on as are the photos. You do need to be reasonably active but I guarantee you will be jogging up the steps by the end!

  • John's place was so enjoyable. It gave us the chance to experience the north shore in relaxed local style. You can actually check the surf from bed!! The food tastes so good at the nearby cafe's - Tom's Bakery, The Beet Box Cafe bus etc . Or maybe the food just tastes better on the north shore (especially after a surf).
    The cabin was basic but had everything we needed and the setting was superb. The mosaiced shower with a view of Sunset Beach was great.
    The best way to soak up the north shore vibe is by borrowing one of John's beach cruiser bikes (there were 3 functioning bikes for my husband, my daughter and I), there is bike track all the way from Sunset to Haliewa. We were able to borrow some snorkelling gear to check out Shark's Cove (actually lots of fish to see there) and we were also able to borrow a couple of older foam surfboards to take to the local breaks. John and his son and others were helpful with the little things that we needed here and there and were very approachable. Great place.

  • Great place to be. Close to Sunset Beach, nice views. Friendly hosts. Steep steps. I would certainly come back.

  • Definitely the best place at North Shore to stay! We loved the lush garden, the sounds of the giant waves at night and the birds at down, early morning coffee at the balcony.. Thank you John!

  • This place is amazing. There is no other location like it (we think) in Sunset Beach. Set on the side of a hill, the views from the cabin to Sunset Beach were amazing. The walk up the stairs referred to in the description were not a problem for us. Be prepared for a very natural and open style of accommodation. John and his son's were very helpful and generous in what they made available for us to use (bikes, snorkels, surf boards, SUP's). This place was so refreshing after being in Waikiki for a few nights prior, and we were sad to leave.

  • Epic vacation in large part due to lodging. Would never stay anywhere else. Only complaint was having to leave! Friendly, quiet, clean, private, helpful people, close to the beach.

  • My husband and I stayed in the Surf Cabin above Sunset Beach for 5 nights last week. We LOVED our stay. The location and ambiance is perfect. The grounds of John's home and 3 rentals is gorgeous and very secluded, each rental is isolated from the others. It's an amazing place with the feel of tree houses. John, the others there and the 2 dogs definitely have the ALOHA spirit - they were very welcoming and hospitable. John even helped us with our luggage up the steep stair way to our cabin. On our second day we needed something and within minutes it was provided to us. In the room there was a Guest Book that people had written their experiences along with their recommended suggestions for things to do and places to eat in the area. Sunset Beach is wonderful and just down the hill - takes 3-5 minutes to walk there. The bike and walking path are all along the beach which makes it a fabulous location to stay on the North Shore. The surf cabin has most everything you need. Kitchen items to do basic meals (no oven or stove but a 2 burner hot plate which worked great), dish towels, plush bath and beach towels, soap (no shampoo or conditioner - we brought some from the hotel we stayed at in Waikiki), a hair dryer, a desk, GREAT wi-fi, 2 little decks to sit on to enjoy the views including checking out the waves, bikes, surf boards, even tow-in equipment, etc., etc. John has lived and been a part of and surfed the North Shore for 30+ years. He is definitely a part of surfdom. So if you want to experience a true North Shore surfer lifestyle, with all the water toys you can imagine, this is the place for you!! The only down-side was that the time went WAY too fast. We wished we had booked the surf cabin for 7-10 days!! Thank you, John, for sharing a part of your life with us. :)))))))))

30+ year North Shore vet and crew love to share local knowledge with guests. We overlook the most beautiful ocean and love to get in it everyday! From white water first timers to big wave tow ins, kite surf, stand up paddle and traditional surfing, we do it all. The focus is fun and we will put you in the right place to maximize yours. We eat mostly vegetarian and organic, and a lot of our food we grow on the property. Yoga is a focal point for us, and if you care to join in we are all inclusive... novice first timers and seasoned yogis alike! The communal yoga deck overlooks the surf at Sunset Beach and has been the venue for some wonderful practice for our guests that have visited and ourselves as well. We enjoy inspiring and being inspired by the friends we make up here. There are a couple of other bungalows on the property that are inhabited by like minded people, we always welcome you to join us, but are very respectful of your privacy.
