Fantastic location, clean, comfy beds. Loved the screened in room and lanai. Didn't even use the kitchen because there were so many great places to eat in Haleiwa.

Betsy's place was very clean, comfortable, and nicely furnished. It was about as close as you can get to the beach without paying "on the beach" prices -- 140 steps from the back gate. We snorkeled with sea turtles every day, and the fish were beautiful as well! The beach isn't "groomed" like many of the more pristine beaches on the island, but the fact that there were rarely more than a dozen other people on a pretty vast beach at any given time made up for this. The waves in August were much too small for boogie boarding, but nice for floating and snorkeling. Be sure to ask for extra fans, as there is no air conditioning and the ceiling fans do very little to move air. We were a bit disappointed that the grill was "communal" and not on the deck, but rather below in the yard, outside the studio rental. It was a small Weber charcoal grill, so a bit small to cook dinner for 4. There was no cooler provided, which would have been handy a few days we ventured out. A maintenance man came to replace window hardware during our stay, which we found a bit intrusive and inconvenient -- he was perfectly nice, but we didn't feel comfortable leaving the place with all our belongings while he was working. While necessary maintenance was addressed in the terms of the rental, this work was not "necessary". The windows were functional before the work. We were awakened multiple times every night by nearby dogs howling and barking. There's a very close neighbor with at least 4 or 5 dogs that seem to howl and bark at the slightest disturbance. Given the heat, it's necessary to sleep with windows open, so you really can't avoid the outside noise. All this said, I'll reiterate that Betsy's place was clean and comfortable, and situated in great proximity to a lovely, quiet beach where you're sure to see turtles every day. Haleiwa is a fantastic little town with great food and fun shops. It's a town we would happily stay in again!

Residential neighborhood. Close quarters, host lives in building and you get a section of it. So you share your vacation with others.

Betsy's place is very close to downtown Haleiwa yet it is located in a residential area right by the beach. Everything in the house was well equipped from mattress to coffeemaker to dishwasher. I was particularly impressed with firm mattress, as I have a back problem. The trip was to celebrate my mother's 70th birthday with my family and staying at Betsy's place was a great decision. Thank you, Betsy and Susan!

Talk about a great location! Steps from the beach, and a short walk to the great coffee, food, shopping and scenery of Haleiwa. We had a great time on the North Shore, and it was in no small part to Betsy's beautiful home. Communication was great, check-in was wonderful, the place has everything you'd need, and Betsy was a wonderful source of information about the area. We would DEFINITELY try to book this place again when we venture back.

Lovely location just steps across an empty lot to a lovely quiet sandy swimming beach. I saw my first ever sea turtle right there. Luckily we were staying just when the Jodo mission had its annual bon dance which was particularly spectacular. Easily walkable into town which has all the food and supplies you could need. I just wish we could have stayed longer ❤️

Nice two bedroom, very short walk out the back of the property to the beautiful sandy beach and approx. a mile walk into the historic surfing town Haleiwa. We got to see a seal on the beach sunning itself a couple of days and always saw sea turtles swimming near the beach. The beds were comfortable, nice pillows and bed linens. The bathroom newly remodeled. Ceiling fans in both bedrooms and portable tower fans as well. The rental was very clean. My daughter is in the Army stationed at Schofield Barracks so she also had a car, only allowed to park one car on the property so parking on the street was doable but not optimal. We would definitely stay again. Betsy was easy to reach and very responsive.

Aloha . . . you'll never believe it until you see it; because, as we're always told, "The pictures just don't do it justice!"
