There are so many awesome things to do on the North Shore! Waimea Valley is just breath taking with all it's flora and historical significance . . . hiking the valley is a treat! The bay is just as amazing with it's turquoise blue waters in summer and giant swells during the winter. Green Sea Turtles love our beach and can be seen and swam with all day long.

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay with Susan & Betsy. The location was great! We snorkled with giant sea turtles right out in front of their place. They had everything we needed & their rental was spacious & comfortable.
Great North Shore apartment. Very clean house and great host. Short walk to beach shops and restaurants. I would definitely stay here again.
We had a wonderful stay at Surfers & Writers Paradise in Haleiwa. Awesome hosts, location and rooms! We were only there for 1 night but I wish we could have stayed much longer! We would love to stay again.
This was a nice place in a GREAT location. Nothing fancy, but you can't beat walking distance to the beach, parks, and shopping/dining/entertainment in Haleiwa Town.
The apartment had everything we needed and plenty roomy.
We would definitely book again in the future.
The apartment was exceptionally clean, nicely decorated and private. Excellent location within walking distance of Haleiwa Joe's which was delicious. Quiet, residential neighborhood. The hosts greeted us and were available for friendly tips if we wanted them. There's a beautiful beach accessible through the back of the property. Boogie boards, bikes available for use. Recommended!
what a fantastic holiday location. Susan was a fantastic host who told us where the best local hangouts were - all within walking distance. The beach was just behind the house through a spare allotment and it was just pristine .
Betsy & her place were wonderful! In Oahu, sometimes the touristy nature & flashy name brand stores can get in the way of experiencing the true aloha spirit of the islands but the North Shore is true paradise. Even though you can easily drive to Waikiki from the condo, you feel far removed from the hustle & bustle. We had 3 adults in our party & each had our own space. The day bed in the living room is large enough for an adult. We throughly enjoyed our stay & made use of the full kitchen almost every day. The beach behind the house is wonderful and secluded. Everything was as described and pictured. Some earlier reviews were way to harsh in my opinion. If you want perfection, stay at a hotel. Yes, there is a "lived in factor" when you stay at a rental home but I never felt anything was dirty or unkept. Hawaii is a high humidity state with salt water in the air so things get a little rusty or worn faster than other areas of the world. We found this place to be an exceptional value & would not hesitate to return. The beds were comfortable & the shower hot & had good pressure. Also, the beach chairs & cooler came in handy. Plus, Betsy is the sweetest host & very accommodating!
