Aloha, My Hawaiian modern studio apartment is Located at the heart of the world-famous North Shore and the mecca of surfing.
This studio is a downstairs unit with a seperate entrance. Very spacious with a comfortable Queen size sleigh bed, clean linens and towels, satellite tv, wireless internet access, use of washer and dryer, kitchen includes refridgerator, glass top stove range and kitchen utensils. The bathroom is remodeled with a beautiful tropical private outdoor shower. Relax on the hammok in the lush green garden. free street parking infront of home in a very safe neighborhood.
Just down the road is Sunset Point, the most spectacular, white-sand beach and surf break on the planet, just a 5 minute stroll. "Sunset" is the second Jewel of the Triple Crown of Surfing and home to several contests in the winter months. "Kammie Land" and "Rocky Point" and the world-famous "Backyards" is directly infront with surfing and windsurfing spots. These world-class surfing breaks are consistently rideable during the winter months (October through March), while the calm serene summers (April through September) generally provide Sunset Beach with calm, crystal-clear water for swimming, skin-diving, scuba, and kayaking.
"Mothers Beach" or "Shores" is where children can enjoy a wonderful swimming area protected by the sunset reef while tiny shore-break waves caress the clean, white-sand beach.
Thanks to the refreshing tradewinds that blow out to sea, summer temperatures rarely exceed 85 degrees F while year-round water temperatures range comfortably between 75-80 degrees F.
There is fantastic sailing, windsurfing, kite surfing, whale watching, snorkeling, shell collecting, and beachcombing on miles of expansive, white-sand beaches. Hiking, mountain biking, and equestrian trails are found in the Koolau Mountains.
Turtle Bay Resort just 15 min drive has a world famous golf course.
Bicycles (beach cruisers) are available to take a stroll on one of the most greenest and calming bike paths that starts at V-land and ends at three tables beach. Three golf courses, fabulous restaurants, entertainment, and world-class shopping in the famous town of Haleiwa are only a ten-minute drive away.
this Unit is on the mountain side of Kamehameha hwy, and just across the street with a one minute walk to the beach

Pretty private studio with separate entrance, outdoor shower and kitchen. Great beaches close by. The room was very clean, I really liked the outdoor shower. Good WiFi. We used the bikes once, not in the best shape, but great for a short drive to the beaches. Haleiwa with its restaurants is about 25 min drive. Walking distance to Ted's bakery which is good for coffee and breakfast.
Ayesha was very friendly and responsive to my texts confirming our reservations, date and address. Very nice little studio with shower and restroom. No complaints whatsoever!
Ayesha is a fantastic hostess. The studio was well maintained and was plenty of space for my girlfriend and I. The location couldn't be better. We went for breakfast at Ted's each morning, and had easy access to the incredible beaches and other attractions of the North Shore.
Cute and comfy little place. You get your own private entrance to bedroom, bathroom, and outdoor shower. The outdoor shower is awesome and very private. Access to amenities including beach stuff, bikes, washer/dryer, etc. Short walk to Sunset Beach, which as its name suggests is a great place to watch the sunset. We spent most of our beach time at Papa'iloa Beach, which is a beautiful beach only about a 10-15 minute drive away. Like others have said, the toilet set up is a little difficult but we managed just fine. Overall, we had a great time and definitely recommend staying here if you're heading to the North Shore!
Nice private studio with separate entrance, outdoor shower and kitchen in great location. Just on the other side of the highway from some of the best beaches on the North Shore. Walking distance to Ted's bakery which is great for coffee and breakfast, lunch etc...
Friendly host who gives you space and privacy.
Unsere Gastgeberin war freundlich und das Zimmer war sauber. Auch die Außendusche hatte ihren Charme. Es ist nah am Sunset Beach gelegen (einer der schönsten Strände Oahus) und in der Nähe ist auch Teds Bakery. Es ist sehr empfehlenswert ein Auto zu mieten, da es sonst in der direkten Umgebung nichts gibt.
Negative Aspekte die dafür gesorgt haben, dass unser Aufenthalt nicht perfekt war.
- Kleiderschrank hat gefehlt
- Abgeschlossener Mülleimer (wegen Kakerlaken)
- Laut vom Apartment über uns (Schritte/Bewegungen, keine Stimmen)
- Die Fahrräder waren im schlechten Zustand
Alles in Allem eine durchschnittliche Unterkunft wo es kleine Sachen zu bemängeln gab.
Great location, great accommodation, loved it here! Can't wait to return again! Mahalo!
Alisha was friendly on our arrival. The room is a good size, but lacks some basics. The kitchen didn't have a sink, limited kitchen items available, so was difficult to prepare food, had to improvise a fair amount. Needs a bin with a lid, cockroaches found the open bin quickly. Shower outside is a nice touch. Toilet is a bit odd, raised on a foot high platform, takes a bit of manoeuvring to hop on. The 'lush green garden' is slightly ambitious, more of a front yard, with a lot of kids toys and gear, didn't see a hammock sadly. Bikes available to use. A room above the room is quite noisy, not sure if it is a rented room or not but every footstep can be heard. Bed is super soft. Wifi available but weak and temperamental. Choice is limited in the area, previously stayed at another property, which was significantly nicer. Shame, had hoped for more for the price.
Had a great 3 night stay! Ayesha is very communicative and a great host.
The apartment itself is one of two rental units connected to Ayesha's house. Each one has a separate entrance, but you do enter through the same yard and pass Ayesha's house in front. The yard is in a bit of disarray with kids toys, bikes, and beach equipment. Basically it looks like a family lives there - which they do - so just know that it does not feel super private.
However Ayesha and her husband have done a really nice job with the actual rental unit. Nice, clean, modern. The outdoor shower is awesome! The toilet is a little odd since it is located on a elevated surface above and next to the sink - I'm still not really sure of the best way to use it ;-) The room does get a bit warm, but there is a fan.
Location is great. Walk across the street and down a short road and you are on the northern tip on Sunset beach. Drive 2 mins, or bike 5 mins, and you are at the main Sunset beach entrance. As others have mentioned, there is a really nice bike path that winds all the way down to Waimea bay (about 20 mins). Also - Ted's bakery is a 1 min walk - delicious!
All in all a great stay - thanks Ayesha!
Outside shower is the best! The bike trail straight across the street lines the beautiful beaches and is definitely worth a ride. (Ayesha provides really good bikes too) Teds bakery is a walk around the corner for morning coffee and pastries and really good spam and eggs! Ayesha is super considerate and thorough in communication which is always a plus. Good North Shore stay.
