Condo, 1 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 2 Sleeps

Paradise awaits at this completely renovated beachfront condo in the famous North Shore!

This private, top floor condominium has direct view of the private beach and ocean in front. The

condo is in the front building of the complex, allowing for beautiful ocean and sunset views. You can watch the sunsets from the front room or the breezy lanai. With Hawaiiana and Balinese decor, you'll definitely feel that you are living in the luxurious tropics. The condo has warm colors and bamboo flooring throughout

The condo has one bedroom and two bathrooms. Everything has been completely remodeled with entirely new kitchen and bathrooms. The living area has a new inter-spring, queen-sized futon as well as a comfortable chair. There is a large flat screen T.V. with cable. Secured, high speed wifi is provided. The kitchen has new cherry cabinets, granite counters & new appliances/ fixtures. The counter extends into a bar area with two stools. The kitchen is fully-stocked with everything you’ll need to make and serve meals.

The master bedroom has a queen size bed and its own attached full bath. There is another full bathroom, off the hallway, closer to the living area. Both bathrooms have floor-to-ceiling tile with

a spa-like feel. High-end fixtures and cabinets compliment the clean, contemporary design. Warm colors and bamboo floor create a relaxing ambiance. The condo is professionally cleaned and updated often with fresh, high-quality linens.

Most visitors find little reason to leave the Condo, as its beach and swimming area provide ideal snorkeling, turtle and whale watching. With reef protection, swimming is generally good year round. The beach is uncrowded, providing its visitors a quiet, relaxing experience. There are communal grills and picnic tables on the grassy area in front of the building. There is also a coin-operated laundry room on the premises. Beach chairs, boogie boards & snorkeling equipment are included.

The well-known surf town of Haleiwa is less than a half-mile away. There you'll find a number of quaint restaurant and shoppingoptions. The famous 7 Mile Stretch of surfing begins in Haleiwa with several surfing spots within walking distance from the condo. Wonderful drives & hikes surround the area. Surf lessons, stand-up-paddle (SUP) and kayak rentals are nearby as well. Honolulu is a 30-40 minute drive from the condo.

This spot is for the traveler who wants to see the 'real' Hawaii... away from the tourist traps and concrete. Whether watching world-class surfing, hiking or swimming, or just relaxing is your thing...

you've found the right spot!

I highly recommend this Condo. We truly enjoyed

our stay. We spent our mornings having coffee on

the beach, our afternoons swimming and watching

the turtles (which their was plenty to watch) from

the beach. To end our day we had Sunset Cocktails

at the picnic tables which was great. If you have a

chance to stay at Haleiwa Surf this is a great Condo

to do so.

Haleiwa North Shore Oahu

Nice but underwhelmed

  • of 5
Seventh trip to Hawaii but our first trip to Oahu and we knew we didn’t want to be too close to Honolulu so I looked for a condo on the North Shore. It’s hard for me to rate this condo because other than the stellar beaches of the North Shore, I much prefer the other islands. However, if you are looking for a condo near the North Shore surf action, this one is very well located and within walking distance of town that has a few restaurants and food trucks.
What I really liked about this unit was that it was directly beach front. We made use several times of the beach—walking it or just hanging out and it was nice to have it right in front of our condo.
On the negative, the bedroom is in the front of the unit where the walkway and (more annoyingly) the lights are. This unit does not have air conditioning so the windows need to stay open but the light from the outside made it difficult to sleep on the queen size bed. To her credit, when I mentioned this to the owner, she came out twice—once to remove the bulb by the window and the next time to put in some room darkening curtains. By this time, we had decided just to sleep on the futon in the living room as it was cooler, darker and we could listen to the waves. However, at times I was struck by the fact that I was paying $200/night to make up and sleep on a futon each night. A few other things were frustrating—no dishwasher, no icemaker, no oven and a few lamps that had electrical shorts.
In the end, I was less than thrilled but yes, I would stay there again thanks to the quick response of the owner. I’m not sure how this fairs with other units in the area for a similar price point. I guess I just expected more.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review on my property and the 4 star rating. I appreciate the positive comments regarding my responsiveness. I live on the North Shore and work full-time on my properties. I appreciate it when guests contact me during their stay so that I can do whatever I can to make their stay more enjoyable. Since your visit, the outside corridor light has been replaced with a lower voltage light. The Association is also working on lowering the lights to just light the walkway (not the corridor). Some lighting is necessary to ensure safety when walking at night. I think the room-darkening curtains I put up during your stay should also make a huge difference. But I must say, many of my repeat guests and family love to also sleep on the futon in the living room. It is a very comfortable, inter-spring futon (10 inches thick) and its hard to beat sleeping 30 feet from the waves. At least you have options! I would like to clarify a couple points you made for future guests. The town feels quaint, but there are a lot of shopping and eating options. My condo has a state-of-the-art, built-in Microwave/ Convection Oven. I've baked with it many times and it works wonderfully. I'm not sure about the electrical comment. Perhaps this had to do with the weather during your stay....or something else happening at the complex. Lastly, I think my condo is an amazing value for $195/night. I travel extensively and have never found a spot, right on the beach, upgraded like my condo for under $300/night. I hope you find this response fair and continue to visit and enjoy these beautiful islands!

The condo is exactly what the description and pictures show. Very clean and well renovated. Quiet environement with only the sound of the waves both day and night.. very relaxing! Amazing beach for snorkelling and walking. We walked for morning coffee to town center Coffee Gallery (15-20min) and jogged to next door Kaiaka Bay Beach Park... Also close by car to world renowned beaches!! Mahalo Jill for everything! David Doucette

Too Many Negatives

  • of 5
First of all, l wanted to believe all the nice things I'd read here, but the owner's communications and refusals to give me the address so I could pass it on to my wedding photographer was my first clue that there was going to be issues. Having no warm water at the condo was just unacceptable. Paying cleaning fees to clean the condo ourselves is a joke. The property itself is gorgeous and in a great location. Maybe find another unit to stay in?

Owner's Response: Well, every once in awhile a Guest Review takes you by surprise. I reviewed all of my correspondence with this guest and did not find the emails she was referring to. I asked that she forwarded those to me and we found out that she had emailed them to noreply@vrbo.com. The requests never got to me. I also confirmed with my current guest (who arrived the day after this guest left) that the condo was very clean and had hot water. I pride myself in my responsiveness. I never received one phone call from the guest either before or after arriving at the condo. I can't imagine not calling an Owner if there wasn't hot water. Lastly, I have the best cleaner on the North Shore. He takes so much pride in every cleaning he does. I have managed my own properties for over 15 years with care and thoughtfulness. Please know that this review is completely inaccurate. I think the other positive reviews tell the real story.

Wonderful, relaxing stay

  • of 5
We enjoyed four stunning days in the North Shore and would stay here again in a heartbeat. The condo is lovely, clean, convenient and right on the beach. I cannot say enough about how relaxing the setting is, with the sound of waves lulling you to sleep each night. And if you like to snorkel, there are many turtles to meet just 3 feet underwater just steps away!

Great spot for the North Shore

  • 5 of 5
This is a great location if you're planning to spend time in the North Shore, you can pretty much walk to Haleiwa if you'd like to check out the stores and restaurants, or just bring some food in and enjoy it on the balcony overlooking the ocean. It's a great spot for snorkeling, I accidentally almost ran into Slowpoke (I call him that), he's the biggest of 2 turtles that was hanging out every day right at the front of the house. The other guy Speedy is a little smaller and is probably Slowpoke's offspring.

This is a good spot to go during the windy months, since there's no AC, but when we were there, the breeze would keep the bedroom side cool and the fans were helpful. The bathrooms looked pretty new, the two beach chairs which you can use is perfect for when you just want to hang out by the beach.

There's a lot of utensils in the kitchen and the flooring is just right for you to walk on without having to bring in any shoes. The hallways do carry sound, so the neighbors know to try to stick to the quiet time of 10pm to 8am, or something like that. It was a good place to start our trip.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I think other travelers will appreciate the detailed information. Please note that your visit was during one of the warmest temps here on the island. The fans keep the bedroom and rest of the condo cool year-round. I hope you can make it back to the islands again soon. Safe travels & Aloha.

A great place!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for 3 weeks and absolutely loved every day. This unit is about 30' from the beach, water is warm and clear with great snorkeling as soon as you get in the water. We found the condo to be clean, very attractively decorated with every utensil you need in the kitchen. Owner Jill Paulin is great to deal with, very accommodating and friendly. We hope to return soon. Other people staying at the site are from all over the world, casual and friendly but certainly not overbearing. This place definitely has the aloha spirit!
