We loved staying at this sensational home on the North Shore of Oahu. It's situated directly on the most beautiful stretch of private beach. We spent every morning waking up and walking 5 steps into the sand.
The home is expansive. Extremely lush and luxurious. There were 8 of us. Including 2 babies. We all had our own private space (and ensuites) to escape if needed.
A few things: The sliding doors were cumbersome. They need a major repair. It's a shame because they are beautiful wood. We were told we couldn't use the "spa" buttons on our bath tubs, because people had "abused" them in the past...(?) Also, there was a jacuzzi next to the pool - we were told we could turn the heat on - I did ask politely - and I was told we could use it but they would charge by the gallon of gas used. We ended having to pay the caretaker $60 cash at the end. He came and collected this on the last night. This should've just come out of the $1000 deposit that we initially put down (?!) Odd. But, those things certainly didn't spoil our stay. We didn't let them.
Aside from a few blemishes here and there (fixtures & fittings needed a makeover) - and the terribly dated TV set up...this should be an LED screen, at least... we absolutely LOVED our stay.
The kitchen is fabulous.
Many wonderful memories were made during that week.
That location. Oh, that location! Heaven.
Beautiful private beach! Everything was great! I would definitely stay here again. Aloha!
I was in Oahu with ten friends and had a horrendous experience at the Turtle Bay Resort so we were looking for something awesome and immediate. Jimmy got back to me right away and helped me get into the house by that same night. His caretaker, Dusty, is AMAZING and always there if you need anything. The house is right on the beach, very private and beautiful. Very positive experience overall!
My family and I had a great experience at this beach house. The owner was friendly and returned emails quickly. The caretaker, Dusty was very friendly and helpful himself. The house is located on a gorgeous white sand beach! It's also very secluded. I think I seen one or two people walk past the whole time I was there! Amazing!
I highly recommend this place for big parties /family traveling together.
We (2 adults and 3 young boys) all loved staying right on this spectacular beach. Great waves and nice sand for building. We all enjoyed the boogie boards. Good access to the sights of the North shore which we visited each day. Nice cottage- not fancy but nicely renovated, clean, with lots of space, a good kitchen and washing machine.
To be at one with nature and be comfortable in beautiful surroundings is what we wanted and exactly what we got. Couldn't be more perfect.
The house was beautiful. Very close to the beach (less than a 2min walk). The nearby beach was somewhat private. Great place to take the family for a more relaxing trip, if you have already done all the popular tourist activities. I definitely would stay here again!
Lovely home! We spend Thanksgiving in this wonderful house and had an incredible time! The kitchen is lovely and like it says, the house is very private. We couldn't ask for a better place to stay. James is a great host!
I had a wonderful time at that place! The house is so great, exactly like on the pictures. I loved North Shore! All the famous surfbreaks are just down the road within 5 miles.
Haleiwa is a 5 min drive and is a super cute little town with lots of coffee places and surf shops for sure.
If you are into running, there are lots of beautiful trails to explore.
I can highly recommend tha place!!!
When I come back to Oahu,and I'm quite sure I will, I would definitly book again!
We were delighted with the very pleasant experience staying at James' house. James is a great host, very friendly and laid back, its a lovely neighbourhood up the back of the valley, the room was clean and tidy. Thank you James and we hope to see you in Singapore !
James is a laid back and friendly guy. He's been in Hawaii for more than 10 years and knows great trails for hiking, beaches for long swims and always seems to know about the newest restaurants in town. He is a triathlete; he is always out and about running, biking, etc. He recently remodeled his home, he keeps it clean and organized. The house is airy, a nice breeze from the mountains comes down and its on a quite street. I would recommend his home as a place to experience Hawaii in an intimate, relaxing and fun way!
