Spacious 8' x 10' Private Room in 3 bed/1 bath house. Located in central Haleiwa town and world famous north shore beaches (Haleiwa Beach Park, Waimea Bay, Pipeline, Sunset Beach, etc.). 10 min drive to Schofield.
Experience Hawaii country life and common conveniences all in one spot. We are very centrally located in Haleiwa town off the main highway, everything is literally walking distance. We are steps away from world famous Matsumoto's and Haleiwa Beach Park, public busses, SUP rentals and Rainbow Bridge where you can go for a kayak ride or SUP, restaurants, markets, drug store - all within walking distance.
There is a bus stop steps away from the house.
You really wouldn't even need a car to get around where we are located. If you would prefer not to rent a car, we can offer airport pick up and/or drop off for $50 one way. This offer is dependent on our availability, please check with us first.
The North Shore is a more peaceful and tranquil paradise away from loud and busy Waikiki for a true local experience. Waikiki is but a 45 min. drive away. Please keep in mind that because we are off the main road there may be a lot of daytime noise and traffic from construction or cars but night times are usually quiet. However this still would not compare to city noise.
*Note (11/2013): There is some construction going on diagonal from the house. It usually begins at 7:30 am and they usually finish by 3pm. It can be loud some weeks and others weeks not so much. This hasn't affected any guests so far (or even us), we just want to be upfront.
*Queen size bed with clean linen (sheets & towels)
*Air Conditioner in room
*TV with dvd player in room
*Fresh cup of Cafe/espresso every morning (self service)
*Use of kitchen, pots, pans, all appliances (espresso machine, fridge, microwave, range and oven) to prepare and cook your own meals if you wanted to.
*Limited use of washer and dryer (limited to 1x/week)
*Enclosed outdoor shower (hot and cold water) for use after beach.
*Use of outdoor space/yard and fire pit for relaxing. (Please arrange with us first. We do not allow a bunch of your friends over to party.)
*Use of foam surfboard, body boards, beach chairs, some snorkel gear. (Please ask which ones are available for use.)
Surf & body boarding lessons available by request.
Must be dog friendly. We have a cat as well but she stays outside as Jen has cat allergies.
We are a laid back couple who both work full-time. We are usually gone during the days so you would have the house to yourself most days. We both are able to work from home sometimes so we may be around and home with the baby. We just ask that you clean up after yourself. We work a lot but love to have home cooked meals whenever we can. If you are around, you are welcome to join us for dinner; however, we don't guarantee any meals though. We are a somewhat social couple so sometimes have friends come by to hang out with us during the day.
We've just recently welcomed a baby girl to our family in July. She is a pretty mellow and happy baby and rarely has any "bad" nights. But please be aware that she is still a baby so she may cry, whine, talk loudly and we as well may be goo-ing and ga-ing at any time of the day.

Rod, Jen, Emmy and Lucy were awesome! Very mellow family with good vibes all around. Their baby Emmy didn't disturb us at all and their dog Lucy is amazing. Their place is very central in Haleiwa; everything is within a 5-10 minute walk from their place (coffee, board rentals, bars, restaurants, and Haleiwa beach). The house is very nicely decorated and clean, the bedroom is nice w/ A/C and the bed is comfy! Definitely recommend their spot to others :)
Staying at Rod and Jen's home made my short time in Haleiwa especially enjoyable. You feel welcome from the start and they are friendly and happy to talk and share information about the area or chat. The location is prime for walking to several different beach parks, the bus stop is right across the street, and you can easily walk to the restaurants and many shops. Last I would be remiss if I didn't mention how much I enjoyed the daily smiles from their baby daughter and always being greeted by Lucy (a very friendly and well-behaved dog) when I returned "home" each day. I would definitely stay here again. Mahalo, Rod and Jen!
Jen and Rod's place was the perfect starting point to explore the sights of the North Shore. Their place is right in the middle of Haleiwa - you can walk everywhere or easily jump on the bus/car to go beyond town.
The hosts are friendly and easy going, me and my travel companion enjoyed talking to them and meeting their super cute and well behaved kid, Emi. Their dog Lucy is also adorable.
Jen and Rod will provide you with bath and beach towels, we were able to borrow their sun umbrella and some other beach equipment. The morning coffee was superb and it was also nice being able to use their kitchen to prepare breakfast.
Jen, Rod, their adorable daughter plus Lucy the dog and Coco the cat were the best hosts one could ask for. Their house is perfectly situated in the center - everything's within less than five minutes walk. Jen answered right away to our last minute booking and made sure we got all the necessary info. Could not have asked for anything more! thanks for having us!! I'll be back:)
Great location, wonderful and accommodating hosts! Love this spot.
Rod and Jen were a wonderful couple. They were accommodating and really went the extra mile for us! We were provided with clean bedding, extra towels, and even a parking spot in their driveway! The house was super cute and really felt like home. Our stay was very pleasant, and we would recommend them to anyone looking for a place in Haleiwa.
We spent at Rod, Jen & little Lucy apt three days. We had a very good time there. The apartment was very clean and they were very nice with us. The apartment is in a perfect position to go to surf and to have dinner or a drink out. We wish we can come back sooner or later.
We really enjoyed our stay in Haleiwa at Rod and Jen. They are very nice and kind people, they share all the info you need and are very helpful. Their little daughter Amy is very cute and very quiet for so little baby. Dog Lucy is excellent.
Room was nice, also bathroom and the kitchen (shared with hosts). Regarding the location - it is perfect. If you want to stay on north shore, Haleiwa is the best place to choose, since it is the only little town, where are also shops and restaurants. Haleiwa has it own very nice beaches, but also all other beaches, like Waimea, Banzai popeline, turtle bay, .... are easily reachable by bus, which has the stop almost infront the Rod and Jen's house. We loved our stay there!
Rod & Jen is a very cute couple, same for their little Girl Emmy and their dog Lucy.
They have a nice small house in the heart of the small town of Haleiwa, perfect place to stay in the North Shore Oah'u.
Extremely clean and comfy, i enjoyed the room. It might be small if you're more than one and with a lot of carry on.
You definetely live with them, and share the bathroom with them, but you have your privacy in your room.
So if you're a traveller that loves to have it's liberty, try a entire appartment.
If you love to talk with your hosts, this is the place !
Guys, you're more than welcome in Paris anytime.
AMAZING! Rod & Jen are the best! Their home is in a great location in town, and the home is exactly that!! A great home! Lucy the family dog even makes you feel at home and greets you with a wagging tale! She is also one if the best trained dogs I have seen! Their baby is adorable and never cried once!! ;) I guess even children in Hawaii know their in paradise! We would stay with them again!
