The place was perfect - just what I expected. Blocks from the beach with everything we needed.
We stayed at the studio for 3 weeks in December. This was our first Airbnb booking and our first time on the North Shore. Janna was great, she replied promptly to all my questions and came to meet us after we had arrived. The studio was perfect, it had everything we needed to live basically but comfortably. Small fridge, skillet, French press, microwave, mini-oven, kettle, towels, dishes, fast wifi, laundry, tv, lovely outside area. The bed was really comfortable, the place was clean, shower was great. Location is awesome, just a few meters to backyards next to Sunset Beach. You wake up to the sounds of the waves crashing. 10mins cycle to Foodland, or a 5min drive. 5 mins cycle to Pipeline. The owners of the property were great, friendly and helpful as well. I highly recommend the studio! Only cons: if people are renting the upstairs section the walking on wooden floors sound travels quite a bit so if you are bothered by noise then you may be annoyed. But with the beautiful North Shore on your doorstep you wont be spending much time inside anyway! Travelled as a couple in Dec 2013.
Great apartment in a great location. Exactly as advertised and made for an excellent stay.
Janna was away when I arrived but she set me up with Mark and Rachelle to give me access to the studio. Mark and Rachelle are awesome! Great hosts. The studio was very clean. The location is really great too. It's off Kam Highway so it's in a quiet neighborhood....you can even hear the surf rolling in as you lay in bed. Another plus is Ted's Bakery is very close and they have the most amazing glazed donuts ever! Beach access is just across the street too. Very very convenient.
Absolutely amazing spot. Absolutely amazing. We had such a good time soaking in the sun and getting in the surf. Our hosts were two top notch people, and their little apartment was a direct reflection of that. They even went to the extent of driving us out to a little bay where we got to see turtles and an absolutely gorgeous sunset.
The apartment is small and simple, easy to maintain - just what the North Shore lifestyle calls for. We'll be grabbing this place again when we come back to the North Shore.
We had a very good time at the Sunset Beach Studio. We really enjoyed its location which is very close to the beach. The studio is well-equipped and we didn't miss anything during our 6 day stay. Janna told us in advance that she would not be there and gave us the contact details of the cleaning woman instead. It was perfectly explained how to get to the house and into the studio. Thanks!
Great place to stay right next to the beach. The sunset studio is perfectly located right next to sunset beach (just a short walk) and is in a very quiet neighborhood. We enjoyed this stay very much. It's perfectly located to explore Oahu's north shore. The studio provides all you need and is very clean and has a comfortable bed. Janna is also very helpful and gave us some good recommendations for hiking. Would definetely come back !
Janna was a good host.
The place is very nice clean, comfortable and the localization close to Sunset Beach is perfect !
The area is so peaceful....
Nice, clean little studio. Great location. But the noise from the upstairs apartment ruined our stay. We didn't spend much time inside the studio at all but the little time we did, we could hear every word said, every move that was made. The walking made it sound like a family of elephants was staying above us. We were instructed to not park in the driveway as that was for the upstairs apartment. We were told not to slam the door to annoy the upstairs apartment. Fair enough, they paid more than us. But it seems a little ridiculous in comparison to the noise they were making. And their cars parked in the driveway would block the access to our doors. The place would be pretty good if it wasn't for that noisy upstairs apartment!
Apart from all that, we were left simple instructions that allowed our stay there to be easy and simple. And the place was very clean!
Janna gave very quick and thoughtful responses to our questions and concerns.
Janna and Orion,
A nice couple ..
They left the house impeccable, come back whenever you want, :-)
I would advise this couple ...
Lots of love
Janna gave me good tips to improve some details in the apartment! All done. Treated the apartment in a perfect way!
