Interaction with Guests
I live on property as well but will give you as much privacy as you need. You will feel as if you have the property all to yourself most of the time.
Living on the North Shore has always been a dream of mine. From the perfect surf, beautiful scenery and smiling faces of aloha this place is the center of the universe for me. I invite you to sample it for yourself.
There is a public bus (#55) that circles the entire island for $2.50 with a stop right out front. There are no taxis. Rental car is highly recommended with plenty of street parking out front of the property
Other Things to Note
Update: as of March 31st the property next door is undergoing major renovations. We apologize for this noisy process but it is out of our control. I have been assured by the owner that most of the loud work will be completed by mid July. Please ask if you have any specific questions.
I have worked extra hard to provide clean comfortable and aesthetically pleasing accommodations. I just ask that you respect the property and the neighbors. Mahalo for your kokua!!
We really enjoyed our stay here. The location is perfect, a few steps to the beach, close to shops and food trucks and conveniently placed for exploring the North Shore and beyond. Wayne is a great host. Attentive but not intrusive and very quick to respond to requests and questions. The accommodation was very clean and furnished to a high standard with the living space bright and airy. Other reviews have quite rightly mentioned the construction next door. Yes they start early but are usually done by 3pm. It didn't really affect us negatively. We even got to know a few of the neighbours over a sundowner at the edge of the 'garden' overlooking the beach. We can highly recommend Wayne's place and would also stay there again.
We had a great time on the North Shore.Wayne's place is ideally located and we found it easily as Wayne had given his contact details.We got around on buses and it was so easy with a bus stop very close by to get to the shops and Haleiwa. The only problem is that there is a house being constructed next door and until it is finished it will mean builders arriving at 7am and working within metres of the studio. We were fortunate that we stayed over the weekend and had no problem until Monday morning when the builders arrived. Unfortunately, this situation is out of Wayne's control but in the interest of positive traveler experience, you should be aware that both the immediate construction and possible privacy issues once it's finished, might need to be considered before booking. I'm sure Wayne will provide answers to any questions you may have and I sincerely wish Wayne all the best as he is a nice guy and is well intentioned.
Lynn, my sincere apologies about the construction. It has been more disruptive than any of my neighbors had imagined and yes they start early. I will make a note on the front of this listing about the construction and will not penalize anyone wishing to cancel. That being said, I did have a conversation with the owner this morning and was assured that the framing and other outside work should be completed by July. Inside trim work and landscaping will continue till October, but this should not be noisy as it is now.
The view from the landing and window will not be obstructed upon completion. As for privacy issues, once construction is complete I will do my best to maximize privacy while still keeping the open airy space so many people love and return for. Ill also update photos on the listing so future guests can decide if the space is right for them. Mahalo for your kokua!!
This studio was absolutely perfect for my boyfriend and I who stayed for six nights. Beautiful Rocky Point is your front yard and you can see the ocean from your window. The unit is on the second floor so it provides a nice little view and a great ocean breeze. It was awesome to have a full size fridge as I personally don't like eating out for every meal. There was a plug in portable stove so we could cook eggs, bacon, etc. This is the ideal spot for vacationers who are looking for a relaxing stay on the North Shore. It's located just minutes away from the famous Pipeline, Waimea, and Sunset Beach. Great choice for couples!
Great house and ver prompt contact and emails from Wayne. Cant wait to go back!
The Studio apartment was very nice and included all the necessary amenities to make our stay comfortable. My girlfriend and I basically cooked all our meals and we had everything at hand to easily do so. The location itself was perfect! The apartment is right next to a vacant all grass lot, which felt good as it gave us a little space. We had the beach almost to ourselves and parking was easy. The only time we saw people is when the surf was good, and even then it was never very crowded. I will definitely be back in the future!
Wayne's studio was a great place to stay on the North Shore and I would happily recommend it to a friend. Everything functioned as promised and the studio is only 100 meters from the Ocean (a nice two minute walk.)
In terms of being away from the city, there were plenty of food trucks and restaurants within walking distance. Not to mention all of the beautiful beaches... which were plentiful.
Wayne was quick to respond to texts when we had questions. While we never actually met Wayne, check-in was easy and check-out just as simple.
