Everything was exactly as described - really incredible. The house itself was amazing, really relaxed and spacious. We were celebrating our honeymoon and so the location in the North Shore right next to Pipeline was awesome. Wonderful food trucks within a short stroll featuring acai bowls and thai food.
I can't recommend this place enough if you are looking for a relaxing stay.
Meleana made everything really easy with clear instructions in her welcome email about how to access the house.
The only way you are getting a better location on the North Shore is if you are a professional surfer staying at your sponsor's house. The Meleana was a great host and the house is very welcoming. We can not wait to visit again!
The listing was exactly as described. It was very charming and the location is beautiful.

This is a surfer's PARADISE! Literally a 10 minute walk...through an organic farm....to Sunset Beach. Great local food trucks within 5 minute walk and other local restaurants and shops within 10-15 minute drive. I loved how quiet, secluded and special this place is. If you are considering staying on the North Shore and want a quiet, stunningly beautiful and relaxing place to stay, this is your place. Highly recommend.
This place was PERFECT. It was just as promised, checking in/out was a breeze. The kitchen has everything you need. There is a dishwasher, huge nice fridge, stove, microwave and washer/dryer, coffee maker, rice cooker. There was even a hairdryer in the bathroom (though I didn't need to use it). The Lodge is nestled into the side of the mountain with big windows all around it and I laid in bed listening the rain and singing geckos and birds every night and it was just magical. Everything was perfectly private. I could have sat on the terrace and just watched the swells on the horizon for days. The location is great - you could easily walk to both Pipeline and Sunset, or use one of the bikes available. There are a couple of food trucks at the end of the drive if you want food and don't want to get in your car as well. I was by myself and so just made use of the top floor, and it felt both private and very safe. There was a cat who left me gifts on the terrace every morning, which I thought was awesome (I have no idea if this cat actually belongs to the home but we were friends). The place was impeccably clean, and with the ceiling fans and large windows around it was always very pleasant inside. There isn't great cell reception inside, but there is a landline phone and wifi so its not really an issue. I like to visit North Shore often and I think I will definitely always try to stay at the Lodge!
Breathtaking location. When you step onto the deck overlooking the banzai pipeline you'll never want to leave. The house is perfect. Has everything you could possibly want. Usually we are exploring the region quite a bit but once we saw this place we just wanted to sit, relax and watch the crazy surfers! Would highly recommend it to anyone that loves staying at prime beach locales. Try the Thai food truck 2 blocks away. Best Pad Thai we've ever had bar none. Only downside the entire trip was the hurricane related weather but what can you do... Welcome to the tropics! ;-)
We spent 3 nights at Meleana's property. the kitchen is great and the view even better! our host was great, we'd definitely go back.
Mele is one of the most dedicated people that I know in everything that she puts her mind to. Her properties are beautiful and a stay at one of Mele's properties supports a greater cause here on the North Shore of Oahu. She is a leader with a mission, an educator in the community and has set so many examples for all to learn from. I highly recommend a stay at one of her properties, you will leave a better person :)
