Great North Shore Location!

We loved the property. It is even nicer than you would expect from the pictures! Clean and comfy!

Warm welcome and everything we needed. Used the bikes and washer and dryer too! Nice bike path right up the road. Walking / biking, close to beaches and Teds Bakery.

Fantastic home! Fantastic location! Fantastic owners!

This rental property is very nice. It is well equipped with everything you need to enjoy your stay and have a wonderful time. The location is perfect and the opportunity to be close to the beautiful beach if you are looking for a great North Shore experience. The owners are extremely helpful, they are wonderful people! There are many upgrades on this property that will set you apart from most places. This property is very well maintained. This is our third trip to the island and our first time staying here. We will stay here every time we come back to this beautiful island. I would definitely recommend this property to all of my family and friends! Love it!

A Welcoming, Comfortable, Private North Shore Getaway

This is a fantastic property owned and managed by two awesome people! We spoke with the owner almost daily to learn more about the area and get some recommendations. The space was perfect for my wife and I to relax. The location is nicely situated close to surf, beach and amenities yet private and quiet if you need a little R & R out of the sun. We especially enjoyed Waimea Valley Botanical Gardens and Waterfall which is only a few miles away. Overall, highly recommended. Mahalo!

Great location!

My wife and I stayed here for four nights. When we booked our stay I was a little nervous about access to the beach but it ended up being the perfect location. The beach was less than 100 yards away on a private pathway from the cottage. The best part is that once you reach the beach you can turn right to access to beautiful sandy beach or to great tide pools and snorkeling which is the best of both worlds for us.

The place was clean, new, easily accessible, and overall a great place to stay. We would definitely stay here again in the future.

Awesome spot and hosts!

This north shore rental is amazing. The owner really makes sure you have everything you need to enjoy your stay. The bikes are wonderful since there is an awesome bike path just out the door. The location can not be beat. Walking distance to Foodland, great snorkeling and some beautiful waves. The place itself is really well done, and super clean and comfortable. I would definitely stay here again!

WONDERFUL!

We stayed at the Ke Iki Beach Cottage for 3 nights. The property is in a great location and is beautiful! Host is wonderful and goes the extra mile to ensure you have a great stay. A short walk from the beach, food trucks, and shopping. I highly recommend you stop looking and stay here!

Simply amazing

Can not say enough good things about this north shore gem. The location was perfect for us. The unit was super clean and cozy. The owner was very helpful and made us feel right at home. The beach is sooo close and shark's cove is walking distance. I will definitely return. Thank you!!!

Perfect for two

We had a fantastic week in this cottage, which was perfectly located close to the most beautiful beach. The North Shore waves were something that we will never forget, neither the world best surfers, who we saw practicing right in front of us. The house was equipped to perfection, very cozy and functional. And the owner was a very friendly host. We will definitely recommend his house to everybody. It was also easy to drive around, and even Waikiki and Honolulu were not too far off, but the North Shore was a lot of interesting area to stay.

最高のレントハウスです!


ハネムーンで数泊お世話になりました。keikiビーチまで徒歩1分程度で、ロケーションが最高です!近くにはスーパーやフードワゴンもあるので食事にも困りませんでした。また、オーナーさんがとても親切で、日本語も少し話せるので、頼りになります。自転車やシュノーケルグッズなども貸していただけました。お部屋も広く、清潔で、キッチンには調理グッズや調味料も揃っています。コーヒーが好きな私たちにとってはミルやフレンチプレスが準備されていたのも嬉しかったです。またノースに行く機会があれば、宿泊したいと思います。ありがとうございました。

Wonderful Experience at Ke Iki Beach Cottage! A+

This cottage is really lovely. Decorated with simple and tasteful tropical elegance in their furnishings with all the comforts of home in this well appointed one bedroom unit. You can tell the proprietor's have put enormous time and attention to detail in their vacation rental. Well situated on the North Shore and close enough to all that the NS has to offer, beaches, surfing, biking and exploring the historic town of Haleiwa, yet tucked away on a quiet road. Host was extremely friendly and helpful in suggestions of places to check out while we acquainted ourselves to the area. Parking on site, use of bikes, beach towels, hair dryer and the kitchen stocked with all the necessary appliances. Our only regret was our time was too short at Ke Iki Hale Cottage! Mahalo!

Everything listed by VRBO was delivered as promised.

It was a sister vacation and we couldn’t be more pleased with our stay at the cottage. Everything was as advertised - modern updates throughout, the latest technology, easy access to the beach, grocery market, and coffee shops. Personally, the location was perfect for visiting my grandson and new great-granddaughter located at the Schofield barracks just a 15 minute drive away. It was also ideal for touring Dole Pineapple and the Polynesian Cultural Center. The Hale’iwa community, was an enjoyable discovery just a short drive away. It offered touches of Hawaiian culture and history but also shopping and great restaurants. The entire stay was relaxing in the comfort and security of the cottage yet offered more than the beautiful beaches only a few minutes from the door. Our host greeted us warmly upon arrival and was very kind and accessible during our stay. No doubt I will recommend the cottage to anyone visiting Hawaii for the first time or for a return visit. This location can be as intimate or busy as you want. We felt at home and know you will too. Mahalo for a great stay! Rose Anne and Junella

Simply 5 Star in every way!

Please read all of the other reviews on this place. Its simply fantastic. Not really sure what else I can say that hasnt been said before about this place. Close to everything you could even imagine wanting to do on the north shore. Onwer was fantastic, and though we didnt have any issues or need assistance, he seemed eager to make our stay as comfortable as possible if any issues were to arise. Oahu was never really on the bucket list but after visiting and getting the opportunity to stay at this place, we are considering making this a yearly trip!

Peaceful retreat close to nature and beaches

This home was very well maintained, clean, safe, surrounded by lush beautiful foliage, and within walking or biking distance to most activities in the area. The beach close to the unit (literally less than a 2 minute walk), in either direction, is amazing. Close to snorkelling, food trucks, beaches, bike trails, botanical gardens, and more. The villa had a comfy bed, well-appointed kitchen, nice bathroom, lovely deck, and bikes! It was clear to us that the owners take pride in their property and want guests to feel at home. No complaints :)

LuAnne B

Very cute, great location, very nice folks!

We enjoyed the apartment. About a 5 minute walk to the beach, 10 minutes to Shark’s cove snorkeling and food carts and groceries. Location was awesome! Home is nicely furnished with nice cooking pots, pans, utensils, coffee maker, washer, dryer, etc. Need to bring all food, shampoo with you. Nice seasonings there for you. The upstairs bedroom is tent like, with the fan running, very comfortable. We enjoyed the easy bicycle ride to watch the Pipeline surfing and reading there great table top books on the area. Owner was very helpful from booking to beckoning us good bye!

Luis B

Amazing place, great location, excellent host, truly enjoyed my time!

The cottage has been recently updated and has all the amenities you could need. It was very clean and open, surrounded by tropical foliage. Owner was very responsive and easy to communicate with. The location was great; the beach is right around the corner and you can hear the waves from the lanai. It is located in close proximity to a grocery store and food trucks. An excellent place to snorkel is Shark's Cove which is very close to cottage. The bikes and the grill were very convenient. Highly recommend this place to anybody looking to relax and enjoy the North Shore.

Holly W

Very nice and new well maintained

The guesthouse was nicely done and brand new.The property was lushly landscaped and very pretty. very clean and the owner was good about responding to our request. Has all the amenities bikes, beach chairs,etc. I highly recommend this property!

Perfect North Shore rental!

This is one of the best places we have rented in 10 plus years of renting condos & villas all over Hawaii. The owners really made the trip for us. They were prompt, welcoming & professional and have this place in tip top shape. It was absolutely spotless. So clean & comfy (and I’m a neat freak). We never even had one bug, ant or mosquito in the house which is almost unheard of in this climate. The windows and screens all work. Rental is behind a locked gate you drive through and the owners live in the main house next door. We stayed 6 nights and just fell in love with the place. We could have easily stayed another week or two. It’s perfect for couples & has all the amenities necessary. Kitchen and bathrooms are fully stocked and beautiful. Bedroom is upstairs in a breezy loft, the bed is new and super comfy. We slept so well each night up there, felt like we were in a high end tree house. Gorgeous landscapes and foliage out each window. The lanai is new & perfect to enjoy a meal on & enjoy the trade winds. New gas grill. New washer/dryer and to top it off brand new beach cruisers which we really enjoyed riding on the bike path that goes by all the top beaches up the North Shore. The walk to the best beach was a couple mins & we spent most our time there. We enjoyed watching all the pro surfers & being walking distance to grocery store & food-trucks was a bonus. All the pictures are accurate and it’s a top notch rental tucked away from road & traffic. Great hosts & we hope to return asap.

Relaxed and Enjoyable Stay Cozy Home

Relaxed and easy stay minutes walk away from the beach, few minutes bike ride away from the supermarket, the home is well set up for 2 people with all the amenities you need for a worry free stay. Owners are happy to answer questions for you. Look forward to going back one day. Cheers Matt

North Shore Gem!

I stayed at this rental during a 6 week stay on the North Shore. The rental was clean, quiet and best part was how the owner treated you. He made sure that every detail was taken care of - beach towels, chairs, coolers and bikes. Great location to Hale'iwa, Waimea and Turtle Bay. Food carts everywhere - plenty within walking distance. Teds bakery for great food and pastries, Foodland and a coffee shop. The rental is gated and beach access is only 2 doors away to a huge expanse of sand, ocean and great tide pools. Highly recommend this spot. Thanks for everything!

Perfect landing for a chilled beach holiday

Fantastic beach home feeling at this place hosted by perfect owners. Well thought out (night light for stairs), clean & organised with everything needed at our fingertips. From beach towels to DVDs, fans, & blankets. Clear communication and instructions provided. Owner came around with an umbrella for us to use.. let me know re nearby yoga classes.. warm and lovely to feel welcomed. Sunset beach is a few minutes walk away.. crystal clear water & incredible sand.. pristine & perfect for a relaxing time. Location also a great base for driving around the island & exploring other beaches and areas. Although the kitchen equipment is all there including a bbq on the balcony, we chose to walk to the food trucks located a few minutes away. Ample choice but the Thai was outstanding. Food land supermarket is also within walking distance so anything needed is really convenient. Recommend staying here and would definitely come back. Enjoyed every moment. Mahalo🏝

Great experience with this cottage rental!

This was a first visit to North Shore Oahu so there was a lot to take in. But having stayed at many other rentals off the mainland, this one was very nice for us. It's located close to many things that will take a car plus many beach trips we did well with the bikes and when we were lazy it was short walk to Foodland, nearby foodtrucks and a great stretch of beach that was not very crowded at all, mostly locals. The home itself is very well equipped and we were able to use the TV without hassle, make meals, BBQ, wash clothes and relax after a long day sightseeing. Aaron was always available and reachable throughout our stay and yet it also felt like we had the property to ourselves. He also gave great advice on spots to see, places to eat. One suggestion was Haleiwa Joe's in Haleiwa. We might have passed this one up since it looked too popular from the reviews. But it was by far our favorite place. The apps and entrees were incredible, the drinks (try the "moe"rita, passionfruit margarita) were unusually tasty and the views from our table of the harbor were truly memorable. Service, like most we found throughout our visit, was over the top whether we were at a 4star restaurant or a food truck, "mahalo" is not just a word. One last note on the property, it felt extremely secure with a private gate and a remote and not visible from the street. Without repeating what many others have said, it is true this place does look too good to be true. But it's for real and anyone who is ready for a north shore vacation will truly enjoy the comfort of a private home in paradise. Probably the only thing we didn't expect about this trip, but had nothing to do with this cottage, was how necessary our car was for what we wanted to do. The beaches are all so different, some very swimmable and others very dangerous. So it takes a little trial and error to find the beaches that work for you. Plus, we found driving to Lanikai for snorkeling/kayaying/hiking, Kailua for the beach and a fantastic fresh poke shop (Hibachi's) and other areas closer to Honolulu was very necessary. We didn't spend one minute at Waikiki or Honolulu other than the airport and had a great time exploring using Yelp and locals as our guides. Thank you Aaron and Anna for a truly memorable visit to your beautiful home.

はじめてのバケーションレンタルで大当たり!

今から丁度20年前に友人とはじめてこの地を訪れて以来ずっと、いつかノースショアでバケーションレンタルをしてみたいと思っていましたが、今回、夫の54歳の誕生祝いを口実に計画した旅行で、幸運にもアーロンとアンナのコテージに滞在できる機会に恵まれ、短期間でしたが念願のステイが実現しました。インターネットのお陰ともいえると思います。 コテージまでの道順や、ゲートとコテージの施錠等に関する案内は、オーナーからチェックインの1週間程前に案内されたものにわかりやすく記載されていました。 コテージへ通じるゲートは、Kamehameha Hwy 沿いにはなく、Kam Hwyに並行して海側を走るKe iki Rd 沿いにあります。ゲートを通過して左側2軒目がアーロンのコテージです。コテージの前には十分なスペースのゲスト専用駐車場が用意されています。 コテージのあるKe iki 地区は、一日中とても静かです。 Ke ikiビーチまで徒歩1分、サンセットビーチまでも近く、Ke iki 地区から徒歩や自転車で移動できる道が通っています。Foodlandがコテージから徒歩数分のところにあるのは非常に便利。ハレイワタウンや、最寄りのゴルフ場までもいずれも車で10分程度と、立地面で申し分なし。 コテージに一歩足を踏み入れると、オーナーに歓迎されていることがすぐに伝わってきます。 室内は、オーナーのセンスで美しく整えられています。 私達は日本から持ち込んだスリッパを使っていましたが、床はとても綺麗なので裸足で過ごすのも気持ちいいと思います。 建物1階部分はガレージ、コテージ入口は外階段を上がった2階にあるため風通しよく、室内はサラっと乾いています。 窓の数が十分あるので部屋の中はとても明るいです。窓に取り付けられた可動式のシェードが強い日差しや視線を遮るのと同時に、冷房効果も高めています。 シャワー使用後の湿気を逃がすために、バスルームにある小窓をしばらく開けていましたが、網戸もしっかり張られていたので、室内に虫が入ってくる心配はありません。 照明は、部屋のどの位置も明るすぎず暗すぎず、適度に調整されています。 エアコンの効きもしっかりしていますが、吹き出し口からの風が直接あたらないよう考えられた位置に取り付けられています。エアコンから出る冷たい風をシーリングファンが部屋全体に拡散し、エアコンとの併用効果を発揮しています。 快適と感じられるところは、実際は配慮ある計算がなされていることが多いように思います。 このコテージのバスルームには、ウォシュレットが装備されていることにも驚きました。 ハワイに限らず海外宿泊施設では、極一部のホテルのしかも限られた部屋にしかウォシュレットは備わっていないのが普通です。日本人観光客の多いオアフでさえ、ハレクラニや、最近日本のOkuraがオーナーになってから全室に装備されたカハラホテルなど、他にも徐々に増えてはきていますが、全体からするとまだほんの一部だそうです。 Wi-Fiが快適に使用できたのは大きかったです。 スマホは当然、仕事上ノートパソコンも持ち込みますが、今回、旅行用タブレットの代わりにと新規調達しておいた6インチスマホを、出発前のドタバタで未開封のまま持ちこんだので、SIMのアクティベート以前に、初期設定が必要でした。 まったくの余談ですが、2016年2月現在、Nexus6P×READY SIMの相性バッチリです。通話利用時におやっ?と思う動作があり、100%の再現性がありましたが、わかっていれば対応には困らない程度のものです。日本との通話はもっぱら別のスマホを利用していたので、支障ありませんでした。READY SIMはオアフのほぼ全域をカバーしていると思います。 過去、Verizonで何度か苦労した経験のあるアクティベートですが、READY SIMは評判通り簡単で30分もかからないくらいです。夫の方は、かつての職業がシステムだったというのもあるかもしれませんが、空港から直接レンタカーでハレイワに到着後、私がちょっと目を離した隙に終えてしまっていました。 話しが飛びましたが、コテージは設備面で必要なものは全て揃っています。 バスルームやキッチン周りに備え付けの消耗品も十分です。 コテージのオーナー兼管理人のアーロンとアンナは、コテージに隣接する母屋にお住まいです。彼らのサポートは大変心強いです。親しみやすく、とても心地よい絶妙な距離感で細やかな気配りをしてくださいます。 清潔、機能的で、コテージ内部は細部までメンテナンスが行き届いています。 セキュリティ、全ての設備とそのコンディション、サービス、総合的に質の高さを実現・維持できているのは、このコテージがオーナーによる直接管理だからではないかと思います。 コテージに関する評価は文句なしの星5つにしましたが、アーロンとアンナの真のホスピタリティーと、アーロンの話す日本語に、出来ることならもう1つ星を追加して、星6つにしたいところです。 私たち夫婦は一緒に過去5度ノースショアを訪れ、このエリアにある大型ホテルに滞在したこともあり、とても快適でしたが、このコテージのなんともしっくり落ち着く感は、他では得られないと思います。言葉で表現するのは難しいのですが、滞在してみるとわかると思います。 はじめてのバケーションレンタルの利用で、このコテージに出会えたのはとてもラッキーでした。 リピーターはもちろん、ノースショアははじめてという方にも、また、英語を流暢に操る人も、私のようにそうでない人にも、是非お勧めしたいコテージです。 Mahalo !

Private Sunset Beach cottage

We stayed for 10 days, the cottage was just as advertised, immaculate clean and all the amenities you need for a fabulous vacation on the North Shore. The owners live right next door, they are available for your questions or if you need anything, wonderful friendly hosts. Just look at the photos, read the descriptions and amenities, everything is exactly as described.... Fully equipped kitchen, beautiful bathroom, comfortable bed, bikes, coolers, beach chairs, beach towels, laundry, everything you need for a great getaway. Many famous beaches are a few minutes walk or a short bike ride away. Owners are happy to chat and help with directions, advise on places to go, things to see. If we ever get back to North Shore we would happily stay here again. Thank you for sharing your beautiful cottage. Spend a day or two in Waikiki if you must, but don't miss the beaches and waves of the North Shore. We got to see three amazing days of the Pipeline Masters surf contest!

Everything we expected and MORE!



Perfect location for watching the Pipeline Masters Competition! The house is clean and comfortable and was full of the "little things" that made this a true home away from home. Thank you!!!

Awesome accommodations!

We LOVED our stay at Ke'iki Beach hale. It was as advertised, in a very comfortable, secure & safe, quiet setting. The amenities were top-notch and everything we could possibly need (except more time!) was provided. We enjoyed the area and looked forward to our morning walks along the beautiful North Shore beaches as well as catching spectacular sunsets each evening. The beach was literally a 2-minute walk away from the rental and we found ourselves mesmerized daily by the winter wave action! The owner was a great host, friendly and hospitable. We very much enjoyed visiting with him.  Would definitely stay here again should we find ourselves blessed to return to the island in the future!

Just What I needed

I have wanted to come to Hawaii since I was a young boy (9yrs) I am now 56. This place was perfect in every way but you do need a car. Owner was the perfect host and a great source of information and help. He was great just talking to about the island and his experiences or just to spend sometime talking about anything. The property was really clean and met everything we needed as described. Just sitting on the decking either first thing in the morning or as the sun goes down listening to the birds which are in touching distance just great. There is a foodland within walking distance that supplies everything. There is also a great shrimp van called the Green Elephant give that a go. A short drive to Halwiea about 10 mins in a car or Bus ride, you must try Uncle Bo's love the Shrimp Taco's open from 3:00pm - 9:00pm went the third time got our drinks free wow. If I come back again I will be staying here again. Many thanks! Aloha.

Best Spot on the North Shore!


This rental is in an excellent location and soooooo clean! The place is well equipped so no need to bring anything besides clothes and food. There are beach towels, coolers, bikes, grill etc. We loved being walking distance to Sharks Cove, Foodland (for groceries), and Ke'iki Beach is steps away...so close you can hear the waves! It's only a short bike ride to Sunset Beach as well.  Great host and made sure everything was perfect. The owners are right next door for any needs but still give plenty of space and the rental is very private! Loved that the road is gated so we did not have to worry so much about theft (unfortunately an issue across most of the island). This was a great feature and made us feel secure. Be sure to catch the beautiful sunsets nightly on the beach! Thanks so much! We'll be back again!

Diamond in the Rough


Perfect. Everything about this property is ideal for a frequent traveler like myself: well-furnished, super-clean, privacy, attention to all details that ensures easy use and access, security, and great location - including easy access and short walking distance (just 2 minutes) to quiet beach space. Owners have created a unique environment and space that allows one to really enjoy and appreciate the North Shore experience. They put a lot of thought and effort in this place to make it seem like your home away from home. It shows. Can't wait to get back..

Trip home

perfect stay!

Our trip was ABSOLUTELY amazing! Owners were such wonderful hosts greeting is the day we arrived and fusing us throughout trip with great things to do and help with anything and everything. This cottage is in a wonderful location walking distance to some amazing spots to watch the sunset and enjoy a quiet beach. The grocery store right down the street along with a coffee shop was great! We especially enjoyed the bike trail. Already looking forward to the next trip back to this awesome cottage that was such a great experience as we celebrated my nieces graduation. Thank you for a terrific stay!

Perfect location, lovely property

The property is perfectly located for a vacation based on the North Shore. Shark Cove and Sunset Beach are a short walk away. The bike path runs past the access to the property and the beach cruiser bikes available to borrow allow guests easy access to the beach further up the coast. A local supermarket is within walking distance, as are a few small independently run food outlets with casual seating facing the beach. There are also a couple of small outlets selling clothes/beach shoes and renting bikes and surf boards. There is a bakery a short cycle down the bike path that also does breakfast. The rental property is one of 4 properties behind a code accessed gate - so is private and quiet. We found the property to be as described and was clean and well maintained. There was more than enough crockery and cutlery and a supply of condiments, washing up liquid , foil and other such things which can cost a lot to buy for a short stay. The washing machine and tumble dryer allowed us to take home clean laundry which was a bonus! The beach chairs and beach towels provided allowed us to have a comfortable stay at the beach. The owners made us feel very welcome and were happy to show us around the property on arrival and advise us on local things to do during our stay. I would definitely recommend this property to others and would love to be able to return sometime in the future.

Clean cosy nice relax and enjoyable beach house

Its a great place to spend your holiday when you are at north shore, the beach house have got everything (cooking, eating, BBQ and even laundry) you need its the most complete vacation house we have stayed so far. The owner greeted us with the warm Aloha (welcome) when we arrive, he is a very nice guy if you need anything he be glad to help. There a car pouch inside for you to park your rental vehicle but the 2 way small lane you need to careful when entering and exiting the premise. There are beach chairs and quick outdoor showers available for us to rinse of the sands from the beach which is just a short 1 minute walk behind the house from the main gate before going up the house too. The beach has nice clear water and wave for you to enjoy and sunbath. We'll definitely choose to stay here again if we go back to north shore :D Mahalo couple from Singapore

Great stay!

My new husband and I had a great stay at this beach cottage. On our honeymoon and even during my birthday. This cottage had great amount of amenities that saved us money on renting bikes, snorkel gear, and some expensive eating out. We still ate out some but had everything for a full kitchen and grill. Grocery store close by. Great beach location located between sunset beach and shark cove, with a nice beach around the corner and down the street, not a far walk. Teds bakery was delicious for any time of the day, two miles north of location. Whenever we decide to come back to hawaii we hope to stay here again!

Yvonne G

Great place!

Lovely place next to an excellent beach. Within walking distance to Pipeline and Sunset beach. Hosts are very friendly and helpful!

More than expected!!

Thank you for a trip Josie and I will not forget. You were quick to answer our questions from the initial contact through to the day we arrived. The house is amazing and had everything we needed and more. We loved having "our own place" to stay while in paradise! We hope to be back sooner than later! Thank you thank you thank you!!! -Troy

North Shore Gem!!!

Owners were just wonderful!! The property was BEAUTIFUL, looked exactly like the pictures. It was closed to everything we could need and had a wonderful time!! We look forward to going back!! Mahalo!!

Absolutely Incredible! Met all our needs!

We were lacking for nothing. The flora was spectacular. Very well maintained property!

An Exceptional Stay!



The owners deserve every five star rating, their cottage is a delight. This was our second stay, we definitely plan to do so again. The pictures are accurate, the cottage is well equipped, with great attention paid to keeping equipment and supplies well maintained and fresh. The host had lots of suggestions for us about where to wave-watch, advice on local beaches and excursions. He was always helpful and seemed to be available whenever we had questions, yet gave us our privacy. We would not hesitate to thoroughly recommend their cottage, it is one of the best we have ever stayed in (and we've stayed in a lot!).

Dac

Amazing Trip to the North Shore

We absolutely loved our stay at the beach house. Owners are the perfect hosts and have an outstanding location. they have a beautiful beach just steps away with miles if sandy beach and huge waves to watch. you can also grab the beach chairs and sit on the sand and watch the amazing sunsets every night, and during the day check out the world class surf at pipeline and sunset beaches just up the road. The house was perfect with all the amenities you would want on a sunny trip. One of the best experiences of our life, thanks to the hosts. We will be back next year!! Mahalo

The perfect place for making memories!

My husband and I spent our 40th anniversary here in November. I do not think there could have been a more perfect place we could have gone. The owner and his lovely wife are the perfect hosts. We have memories that will last a lifetime. I recommend it as the only place to stay if you are going to Oahu.

Rachel T

Fantastic Property

We were lucky enough to have 8 nights stay in this rental and could easily live here. Plenty of space and does look exactly like the pictures. We didn't want for anything it was all provided with a nice balcony to sit out on. It was very clean and tidy and well maintained. Hosts were extremely nice and helpful and asked if there was anything they could do to improve our stay, there wasn't, it was all good. The beach is really close by, just out the gate and a short walk in between the houses. There are shops and food vans which were close enough to cycle to (on the bikes provided) or 10 minutes walk and other beaches for snorkelling. I would say to rent a car as it was great to travel around the whole Island and I would recommend this property and would love to return in the not too distant future.

Excellent North Shore experience!!


Had a ball at this North Shore property and can't wait to plan a return visit. Hosts were both very welcoming and run a great vacation rental. There was nothing that the condo didn't have and we felt extremely lucky that all the little bonus extras were there as the little touches such as a great HDTV with cable, the Bose sound system the push bikes etc were fantastic and made us feel that we were well equipped and we enjoyed them all. There is not a doubt in our minds that we will be returning with our yet to be born Keiki next time and my husband Dom is hoping that there is amazing surf the next time he returns (we were lucky to get great swell with two hurricanes that passed us during our stay). Overall if you are looking for a clean, well maintained base where you are able to chill and relax or use to explore the North Shore of Oahu don't look any further this is the place.. Or look further if you wish and then we may be able to get availability to stay here again!!!!!!! Leonie and Dom Perth, Western Australia

Excellent location on North Shore

When we walked into the rental for our two-week vacation, we saw a welcoming house that looked as it did in the pictures at the time of booking. I was happy to see how accurate the descriptions and pictures were. Throughout our stay, we found everything that we would want. From many soft towels in the bathroom and for the beach to an unobtrusive yet effective overhead fan to cool the living areas, the items in the well-maintained home and grounds had been provided with comfort in mind. The kitchen was equipped for cooking fully or for making simple things like smoothies and French-press coffee in the morning. We enjoyed streaming media wirelessly on the big screen TV (brought our Chromecast) but the cable with Bose sound was good too. Wireless music streamed well too. There also were some items available for snorkeling and biking on the path right at the top of the drive. And not to forget the wonderful scents of Tahitian gardenia and white ginger, as well as the abundant geckos and lizards! We felt at home. Owners are accommodating hosts offering help, great tips and good conversation. His suggestions were spot-on - thanks for the heads-up on the farmers market, surf lessons and the ukulele concert :) . We enjoyed snorkeling at Sharks Cove (go up the drive and turn right on the bike path for about 7 minutes) and swimming at our beach (go up the drive, turn left and make a quick left for all of about 3 minutes). Sunset Beach had spectacular sunsets and lovely mornings. It was convenient to have Foodland literally down the street, and Haleiwa was not far off for more to explore. We had a car and enjoyed checking out other places around the island, including a few times to the windward (east) side (Kailua has kid-friendly beach with enticing sand hill, also The Food Company with two restaurants - one for great plate food and one a sit-down environment with great local cuisine - tasty plates). Overall, our experience here was highly satisfactory and hopefully we can return to relax again!

Three-Peat Guest Brings Newbies

This was my third time renting this property, and by far my most significant trip as I was in town for my wedding. I couldn't have asked for a more peaceful, relaxing atmosphere to prepare before, and unwind after the big event. The house is perfectly situated in a gated, well maintained area. It is just a short walk to one of the most breathtaking beaches that you will ever come across. Another thing that I love about this beach is that it is certainly not crowded as is the case with many of the other beaches around the island. The house is nicely decorated with an island flare. It has all of the comforts of home, including bicycles, washer and dryer, beach chairs, paper products for the kitchen and bathroom, as well as a very nice sound system for the television. The house is extremely clean, and I have rather high standards in this department, and is landscaped very nicely. Bugs tend to be an issue in most tropical environments, but I have never found any bugs in this house on any of my visits. As I have already mentioned, this was my third time renting this house, and I can't wait to do so again. This was my husband's first time, as well as my father's. Both of them loved the house as much as I do and are looking forward to a return visit. The owners of the property, are the nicest, friendliest people to work with. They are conveniently located right next door, so are available to address any of your questions or concerns. Great people, great place!!!

Heaven on the North Shore

My family stayed here on our very first trip to Hawaii, and Oahu. Excellent location, beautiful property, clean, and very well maintained. Owners provided everything we needed for our stay.They seem go go out of their way to provide an outstanding stay. The beach is just a minutes walk away. We went snorkeling just down the street and saw a huge turtle.Shopping and local seafood trucks also within walking distance. I really see no need to go anywhere else. I would highly recommend these owners and their property. Thank you for a great vacation.

Tropical Delight!

The home was perfectly clean; the kitchen, bathroom, decor and bed were all great! It is in an amazing location. We used the bikes and snorkeled every day. Hosts are very gracious.

Honeymoon Hideaway

We had an excellent stay here as part of our honeymoon. Great location, lots of amenities, very cozy! Owners were great, very responsive & accommodating. The location couldn't be beat! We were in a good location between Haliewa, Turtle Beach, and all the beaches in between. We had some local friends & their kids over for a BBQ and we were able to catch up on some laundry. We didn't get a chance to take advantage but there were also bikes and coolers provided. Any questions/concerns we had were immediately handled by the owner. All in all this is a great place to stay, would highly recommend & will definitely stay here the next time we visit!

Lovely Cottage!

We are a family from Sweden that stayed for five nights. It was a perfect place to stay. The studio is very neat and all equipment you need. You don´t miss any thing from home. Host is a very kind and helpful owner. The surroundings are beautiful and quiet. Easy to park. Do not miss to visit Ted´s Bakery.

We couldn't have asked for a better place

We couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay and a better landlord. The house was comfortable and location was perfect. It was within walking or bike riding distance to most of the great North Shore surf spots, Shark's Cove and Waimea Bay. All of their suggestions for places to eat and things to do were on point and created new and memorable experiences for us. We appreciate the hosts warmth and friendly hospitality. We will definitely come back to the Ke Iki Beach hale for our next North Shore vacation!

Tip-top accommodations on the North Shore!

Who can possibly choose hotel rooms when a place like this is available? The photos & descriptions of Ke Iki Beach hale are spot on. The TV/stereo system is terrific, the furniture is lovely, the bed is comfortable, the tradewinds keep the place cool, but there is a/c if necessary. In fact, there is much more available than we expected (kitchen supplies, bountiful plush towels, access to the washer/dryer, movies). Upon my initial contact, the owner was prompt & informative w/ our communication, & this continued throughout our stay - in fact, he is very knowledgeable & helpful regarding beach/surf conditions. Walking the long stretch of beach & watching the surfers each morning is a real treat. The local Foodland grocery store is conveniently located, & Haleiwa offers many restaurants (don't miss Opal Thai & The Grass Skirt). We will be back!

Awesome spot for a holiday on the north shore, great location, clean, tidy, comfortable and homely. Property owners were very friendly, and were also helpful when it came to local knowledge.

WE ARE BACK AGAIN!

LOCATION and QUALITY, that is what this property is about and why it has drawn us back for the fourth time from the UK for another 2 month stay. A private, secluded and secure position only 2 minutes walk to a beautiful beach, on the bike path, walking distance to Foodland as well as some exceptional food trucks and a short cycle to all the best that the North Shore has to offer. The property is uniquely designed, a standout from other rentals. Well maintained and spotlessly clean, it has traditional Hawaiian and Indonesian furniture and furnishings, which blend with state of the art technology and appliances. The owners have constantly upgraded the property on each of our visits, maintaining a high standard of comfort and equipment. From a Bose home theatre system, to wi-fi and blue tooth audio system. We have not found anywhere to beat it. The owners,  are the most experienced and obliging homeowners, you might just want to take them home to be your neighbours! Even for frequent visitors like us, they keep on top of new places to visit, eat and explore. You will be drawn back, again and again, that's the risk you take once you've been!

Perfect ! Highly Recommended Vacation Rental

A perfect home away from home for us. Hosts were so welcoming, you felt at ease knowing if for some reason something happens they will always be there for you. This was our first attempt to rent from VRBO so I was a bit hesitant to do so but went ahead and threw caution to the wind, I've read the reviews and when the owner sent me additional photos via shutterfly then I felt at ease, I heard this place was calling my name :) Everything went smoothly, we were sad to leave but then again the memories and the great times we had, will always be in our hearts and minds. For us, this place was so special not only because of the beautiful surroundings, we renewed our vows a few steps away from this cottage. The cottage was beautifully made, all the appliances were in working order, clean and comfortable, free parking in a gated compound, a few steps away from the beach. We're already planning our next vacation and will definitely be staying here again so what are you waiting for???

Great Place for Beach Fun or to Escape Waikiki Craziness

This was our first VRBO rental. Based on this experience, we would use VRBO again. The property was accurately described and renter feedback was helpful. The location was perfect for us. We wanted to get away from the crowds and were able to achieve our desired goal.

Silvia R

Excellent!

We spent 3 nights in this lovely studio and would highly recommend it! The location was excellent - immediately next to Shark's Cove and easy walking distance to Waimea Bay. Wish we could have stayed longer!

Andy & Anne

Highlight of our Stay

Staying here was one of the highlights of our recent trip to Hawaii from Australia. The cottage was a great design, clean, very well appointed and in a fantastic location. Owners were friendly and very helpful, but also respected our privacy. Loved using the bikes provided on the local cycle track which ran parallel to the beaches. Owners also recommended local restaurants, which were fantastic. And really enjoyed that laid-back coastal vibe of the north shore. Would definitely recommend to others and hope to return some day.

Sunset Beach Cottage Rental

This place totally ROCKS! It's beautiful, airy, comfortable, and in a quiet neighborhood. We could see stars at night--lots of them. Of course the beach is stunning. The owners are wonderful hosts and the property is filled with peaceful energy. I recommend it a million times over (though I don't want so many people to book it that we won't be able to rent it the next time we go back :-)). You can't pass this up! My husband was born and raised in the North Shore area, and he gives this place a 20 out of 10.

Perfect Vacation!!!!

This beach house was perfect for us. It was cute and clean and had everything we needed. The host was there when we arrived and was able to give us good suggestions on what to see since it was our first time in Oahu. We loved staying on the North Shore away from all the crowds of Waikiki. It was a very short walk down to the beach. This beach wasn't a great place for us to play in the water, since the waves were a little strong for us when we were there, but is was beautiful to look at. (If you are used to the ocean, you could probably swim here.) There is a bike/walking path at the end of the driveway that goes a few miles. We rode the bikes on the path down to Ted's Bakery a couple of times. Yum! Don't miss the chocolate hopia pie. This was our first time to use VBRO, and I was a little nervous about it, but we had such a good experience that I'll definitely try it again. If we ever get to come back to Oahu, we would stay at this beach house in a heartbeat.

Fantastic time in paradise

We had such a wonderful time at Ke Iki Beach House. My husband,son and I had a great time staying up in the N. Shore. The host was such a great help with food recommendations and places to visit. The house is well stocked with everything you need to cook with and is very cozy to come back to after a very hard lay of lounging at the beach. Foodland is walking distance and the town of Haleiwa is not too far away. My family had a photo shoot at Sunset Beach and our photographer grew up a few houses down from this beach house. I can't recommend this house enough...or maybe I shouldn't. What a perfect hidden gem in the N. shore. We hope to be back soon. Thanks for your great hospitality. Mahalo.

Amazing!

My boyfriend and I met the owner who was super helpful with the Area, bikes, suggested the best restaurant, and totally made us feel welcome in his super cute beach bungaloo. It feels so nice and cozy and warm... We were only there one night but it was the mst special night of our 7 day trip to Hawaii. This is not to miss!! very romantic, clean, and perfect!! Thank you :)

Perfect home one the North Shore

This is the perfect place to stay at the North Shore. We arrived and felt right at home after a friendly Welcome from our host. The cottage is beautiful: nice furniture, a very well equipped kitchen, a big barbeque on the Lanai and everything spotless. The location couldn't be better.Go for a morning walk at the perfect beach, grab the bikes for a ride to another beach if you need some change. We hardly used the car while we were there. Mahalo!

Larson S

Just a nice place

The beach cottage was just great! I highly recommend this place. The property is as described and the pictures don't do it justice. It was just a really pleasant place to hang out. The property was really clean and well maintained. The beach is just a few steps away and there is a grocery store nearby.

Guest Book Comment

This accomodation is perfectly located between Waimea and Pipeline and a very short walk to the supermarket. The ideal location makes it a leasurely walk to the iconic locations on the North Shore or if you are in a rush to get to the waves an easy bike ride (bicycles provided). My wife and I enjoyed the privacy of having our own accomodation, but the owners Aaron and Anna (who are extremely nice people) were always close by if we needed some advice. We would definately recommend this accomodation to other couples who are after privacy in a very central location. It was very clean and had all the kitchen appliances we required. Cable TV was an unexpected bonus. This ideal place to stay really helped to provide what was a memorable holiday in one of the nicest places on earth.

Third Time in Row!

My third year in row and I just booked for next year. I recommend this property to all of my friends and family. The cottage is very well maintained even the grill was spotless. Owners are all about the aloha spirit. Thank you for another awesome vacation. Mahalo

Heidi B

Just as described

A delightful little spot for a low key North Shore vacation. We loved being so close to Ke Iki beach, the bike/walking path and Sharks Cove. Ke Iki Beach hale has everything you need and nothing you don't. The best ingredients for a laid back and simple get away. Thanks!

Nome Utente

GREAT find on the North Shore...

My wife and I just stayed at this great little coach house/beach house - rare to get a one bedroom 2 level house that gives you so much space for the very fair price. SUPER clean and tiddy with everything we needed to enjoy our stay. We will be recommending to our friends and staying again.

We stayed for a week in September and had a fantastic time. Owners made sure our stay was worry free and that we had everything we needed. The cottage is immaculate, and located a short 2-3 minute walk from the beach. We enjoyed cooking on the new gas grill and eating on the deck, bicycling to Ted's Bakery, and walking to Shark's Cove to snorkel. The North Shore offers a relaxing get-away from the hustle and bustle of Honolulu, with lots to see and do, and many, many great places to eat. The cottage has all the amenities, including satellite TV, DVD player, washer/dryer, dishwasher, etc., and a cozy loft for the master bed. We would go back tomorrow if we could. Thanks to our hosts for a great time.

short stay, wonderful experience

Like pretty much every review has mentioned, owners were very hospitable and helpful. My wife and I only stayed for 3 nights, but we had a lot planned, and we received very good tips on where to shop, dine, hang out, and enjoy the North Shore to its fullest. This cottage has pretty much unbeatable location -- quiet neighborhood that's pretty much a street corner away (~5 minutes on foot) from an extensive but relatively secluded beach (in September). Even though this is a quiet neighborhood, it is still very convenient to get necessities at the local Foodland (1-minute drive). Of course, the cottage is already stocked with loads of useful items: kitchen/grill utensils (with outdoor grill), spices, books, movies, etc. We also made good use of the bikes and snorkeling gear provided for us. This location is just 40 minutes from Honolulu, so you certainly have the option to check out bustling parts of the island while being able to have a peaceful stay if you choose.

North Shore Happiness for two newlyweds!

Outstanding rental for the couple or small family looking for all the comforts of home, with north shore activities a nine iron away. Owners are great hosts! They really share the Aloha and north shore vibe, and give you all the right tips to make the most of what you are looking to enjoy. The little beach out back is a little more than that. It is a secluded all day retreat that you would rarely share with more than ten people. The beach is also Ideal for nightly sunset viewing. With the bicycles that are provided, you can park the car and go for miles in either direction if your endurance allows for it. I could go on and on. The fact is that what the hosts advertise is all there and then some. My wife and I will be returning and we suggest that others make it a must stay location. Aloha, Robb and Sarah Seattle WA

The perfect property when visiting the North Shore!!

We can't say enough about this property. It was spotless to start with... The location is perfect, right in the middle of the North Shore sights and beaches. We were within walking distance of all the necessities (I was recovering from a leg fracture when we visited) and a short drive to any attractions. It is a quiet location and very safe on a gated street. Anything you could need is provided from bicycles to beach chairs to ice chests or BBQ grill. Very prompt response if you have any needs or questions otherwise they give you plenty of space. I would stay there again in a heartbeat and will recommend this place to anyone I know who will be visiting the North Shore!

Kiwi

Wish we could have stayed longer!

The property was true to the description, and the owner was a real cool guy, and helpful. We would recommend this 1 bedroomed to anyone, it was clean, tidy, comfortable, and well equipped. A short walk to the most beautiful beach. We loved it, and wished we could have stayed longer. Hopefully we will be back to spend longer next time.

Debbie

Perfect romantic place

Spent 6 days in this cottage and we did not want to leave. Owners are very pleasant and made sure we had everything. Short walk down block to beach and sharks cove. Food land within walking distance. Cottage is very clean and comfortable. We will return again!

Our gracious host was fantastic and very helpful in explaining local attractions and surf breaks. The unit is private and our host was not in the least bit invasive available only of we needed him. The accommodation exceeded our expectations. The unit is completely self contained and quite luxurious. Great kitchen for cooking ! Beautiful location, stones throw from the water and 10 min walk from what is unarguably ( you cant argue about it is the best) the north shores best snorkelling spots. Nearby local culinary delight is the Ahi fish burger and fish curry! We only wish we had more time to stay at this wonderful abode. Nearby drive to turtle bay where we actually did see turtles and nearby drive to Haleiwa Shops home of the shaved ice and amazing shopping! Very cute shops. Sunset aptly named we saw amazing sunsets

The Perfect North Shore Getaway

If you're reading this, you're looking for a spot to relax on the North Shore of Hawai'i. Book this place!!! The house is spectacular, the location is prime and the owners, so welcoming. Our experience during our stay exceeded all of our expectations. We arrived to an open, spacious and extremely clean 2 story home with vaulted ceilings, updated decore, a full and updated kitchen, spotless bathroom, cozy 2nd level bedroom, and a spacious lanai with a new gas grill. Bikes, beach chairs, snorkel gear, and a boogie board were all available for our use. The tropical palms, flowers and other island flora and fauna that adorn the property are just magnificent! The house is less than a 7 min bike ride to shark's cove (best spot to snorkel on Oahu), Sunset Beach, Waimea Bay, and several of the best surf breaks in the world. The closest beach is right behind the house, a 4 min walk. Owners are the best hosts and that added so much to our positive experience on the North Shore. Thanks you two. Much love and aloha.

Greg & Julie

Absolutely as Advertised!

This "cottage" (actually a beautiful house) was perfect for our beach vacation! All of the amenities and extras were exactly as stated in the property descriptions. We loved the location, the privacy, and the absolutely beautiful landscaping and surroundings. The house was spotless and very well-maintained. If you're looking for a laid-back, quiet, uncrowded and perfect beach vacation, then this is the place for you to stay. Fantastic beaches, snorkeling, and great views are all over the place within just minutes of the property. Owners were extremely gracious and very helpful with local "tips" and ideas for visitors. We highly recommend this property and would rent it again without hesitation. We've already recommended it to friends!

Heidi

Best cottage on the north shore!!!

This cottage was amazing. I was there for a week and it was hands down one of the most comfortable and welcoming places I have yet to stay. There is nothing more beautiful than the beaches that are a very short walk from the cottage and the owner's provide everything you need to enjoy your day on the beach. The best is the awesome bath tub after a long day on the beach followed by a very quiet nights sleep. This cottage offers everything anyone would need for a get away :)

Jill R

Ideal vacation rental

We found this cottage to be exactly as described in the listing and more. It's well maintained and the location is ideal for easy access to great beaches, snorkeling, surfing, and anything else you could desire for your Hawaiian vacation. Owners have equipped the place with everything you could possibly need or want. We found it to be the pefect place for a much needed vacation and highly recommend.

Would rent again

Have stayed at 4 other locations on Sunset Beach, but would return here. Very clean, very nicely furnished and well maintained. Owners' pictures and description accurately depict the rental, amenities, and location. Owners are friendly and helpful.

We had THE BEST time

Fantastic accomdation and location! We had a brilliant time staying at he Ke Iki  beach house and would recommend it to anyone! House has all the ammenities you'd need, really homely clean and really well maintained... and with the beach only steps away - what more could you want for?! Thanks ... we can't wait to be back!

Our Fourth Fantastic Stay

This was our fourth stay at the cottage. We absolutely love it every time we visit. It's comfortable, all amenities you could possibly need. Our daughter loves to play in the grass yard and lounge in the hammock. Amazing as always!

Feeling at Home in O'ahu

This cottage get-away centered between Sharks's Cove and Pipeline beaches was the perfect place to relax and enjoy the North Shore. The home has everything we needed to enjoy the area and feel like local residents. The location is awesome. With bike and walking trails and the beach just a minute away, we enjoyed snorkling and biking several times. The cottage has beautiful landscaping and I especially enjoyed the lush feeling nestled around the quiet, comfortable home.

Kelda and Robin

The perfect retreat!

This rental at sunset beach was the first stop in our Hawaiian islands tour. After a long journey from the UK it was exactly what we needed - a quiet retreat just seconds from the beach in a really relaxed area with a great surf culture. We loved it. The house was spotlessly clean and really well equipped, and the owners were really kind and helpful all the way through our booking and our stay. Highly recommended!!!

Great Place to Stay

 Would certainly recomend this place to anyone who is looking for a clean, comfortable and quiet place to stay. The way the property looks on the website is exactly how it is in real life. I was not let down at all once arriving to the property. The place has all the creature comforts that you could ask for and more while away on vacation.

Darren B

Excellent Stay!

Fantastic property for enjoying everything the North Shore has to offer with a great location in a quiet spot. Ke Iki Beach hale was very well equipped with everything we needed and the care and attention to detail of the owners was very apparent. It was also great to have the bikes to explore and cruise along the bike track. We only wished we could have stayed longer!

Wonderful!!!

It is so refreshing to find such a charming and well cared for place like this little cozy yet airy cottage. It has all the amenities to meet (and exceed) your needs. Outside provides amazing opportunities to explore beach after beach riding along the bike path. We truely felt comfortable in every way. Owners are incredibly personable, attentive and genuinely nice people. Thanks you guys!!! Sincerely, John and Steph

North Shore



We stayed at the house for 2 full weeks and it was simply “brilliant”. I struggle to find the right words to describe our experience. We always have self catering holidays but this property was by far the best we have ever rented. Absolutely everything was provided. Beach towels, beach chairs, cool boxes, snorkelling gear, bikes, some toiletries, soap powder and so much more. There is a policy in place where if you use something up you replace it for the next people, what a brilliant idea! The rolling library works well, plenty of DVDs available all in all a great experience! However the best bits about renting this property are the owners who would easily win a “top Host” award! Nothing appears to be too much for them, you ask, they deliver it is as simple as that. We read a lot of the comments before renting the property and I can honestly say none of them exaggerate the truly warm welcome you get from the owners. They convinced us you should visit Hawaii at least twice and believe me we will be back one day! Mahalo for the warm welcome and for giving Bill his daily “ask ****” half hour. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would ever like to experience some cold, wet, Yorkshire weather. Big hugs from us both.

Happy in Hawaii

Awesome place, the BEST hosts!!

Words can't express how happy we were with our stay at this place on Sunset Beach! The open layout of the home made it inviting to stay in for dinners, cooking on the BBQ and eating out on the deck. The location is PERFECT!! We only wish we had a few more days to further explore all of the fantastic beaches in the area. Owners were absolutely the best hosts. We ran into a few challenges while we were up there (our own doing!) and they were quick to help in anyway possible, going above and beyond what I would have ever expected. We would recommend this place to anyone looking for a fantastic getaway by the beach. We will certainly be back!

Irinad

Great place to stay!

We were very happy with our stay at this place. The cottage is clean and in a very good shape and all of it, including the cozy kitchen, had pretty much everything we needed. Hosts were also very responsive and willing to help us as much as possible whenever we had questions or special needs. The location of this cottage is fantastic - walking distance to a great swimming/surfing beach, walking distance to wonderful snorkeling Sharks Cove beach and only 2 minutes of driving to Waimea Bay which was superb for swimming in May - beautiful, clear-water peaceful beach. We greatly enjoyed both the privacy of this residential neighborhood location and close proximity to great beaches and grocery store. Overall, this was an excellent choice of the place to stay.

Perfect Spot

Thank you for such a great stay on the North Shore. I live on the island and have rented several houses in the same area when friends visit, and your house is by far my favorite. The house is in a perfect location, has every amenity you could want, comfy bed, awesome lanai, and very nice bathroom. We loved our stay and will definitely be back again! Erin, Liz, Melissa

Absolutely Perfect!

First off, thank you! The hospitality was great, the home was perfect, the location was beautiful, the value was amazing... we truly couldn't have asked for anything more! (maybe another week) As a guest you have everything you need within walking or biking distance (bikes included). You essentially have your own private beach within feet from your door, famous public beaches and snorkeling minutes away (Waimea, Pipeline, Sunset, Shark's Cove) Great food in Ted's Bakery (fresh donuts and pies are insane), Shark's Cove Grill, Smoothies, Foodland Grocery... need I say more?! We are already counting down the days before we get to return and stay there again. I'm hesitant to give such a good review because we want the place to ourselves! Haha

Cassandra W

We love it here!

As always, our stay at the Cottage was amazing. This was our third trip and we always stay in this house. It's so fun to easily jump on the bikes and be any where. We unplug and relax the moment we arrive. Thanks for always being so gracious! Cassi, Keith & Matigen

The place was clean and had everything we needed, washer, dryer. beach towels, chairs, etc. This was our first time staying and it will not be our last, Owners made everything as easy as possible. Thank you and we look forward to returning to HI as soon as possible.

Outstanding Hospitality

Mahalo for your outstanding hospitality! If you're looking for a true North Shore experience with all the comforts you need to truly relax, this place is perfect. We loved making a quick breakfast, heading out for the day then coming back to BBQ seafood at night. There are several beach options within walking distance, you can see the action at Pipeline or chill on a very secluded section of sand for some quality reading time. This place and the surrounding area exude the laid back nature of the North Shore; we absolutely loved staying here. Hosts were both incredibly hospitable, we're looking forward to staying at this property again! Best- Laurie and Joel

Waited a year to reserve a week after meeting a couple on the beach who loved the place. Stayed 1wk in Feb.2010. Perfect location, close to food and a very private beach. Particularly loved watching humpback whales from our beach chair. Owners are perfect hosts. They even warns you when a tsunami is arriving!

Amazing

My boyfriend and I had stayed at this place during our trip in September. He ended up proposing and I couldn't imagine having that moment anywhere but at this place. The beach was almost always empty and the sunset is beautiful. It was so relaxing and very private. I'd stay there again in a heart beat. It was the most magical trip I have ever been on.

Great host & the place was amazing!

We had a wonderful time on North Shore as part of our honeymoon in Hawaii. The beaches on North Shore are lovely, though our favourite was your/our beach next door to the property!The cottage is perfect and you have thought about all the touches that make it a 'home from home': BBQ, DVD player and collection, IPod player, etc.It was also a pleasure to meet you both. We would definitely recommend your cottage and would love to stay again in the future (if only it wasn't so far!). MahaloJames & Gözde

We absolutely loved our stay at the Ke Iki Beach hale cottage! Hosts were very helpful and went out of their way to be of assistance. Our only regret was not taking the surf lessons the owner suggested. We need to plan another trip when we can stay longer! After visiting beaches on Oahu, Maui, Hawaii and Kauai we have to say that this was one of, if not the best beach we had the pleasure of visiting. We can’t wait to go back!

We had a blast living at the house for a couple weeks. Anytime you can holiday to a place like this and not have to stay in a hotel is excellent and this place has everything you need too feel like a resident. The neighbourhood is friendly  and the beach is private and quiet. I would definately recommend this house and would return in a heartbeat! Thanks!

Perfect stay!

Our stay at Ke Iki Beach Hale was the perfect way to begin our visit to Hawaii. Everything was as advertised. Clean, neat & well appointed, the cottage had everything we needed. A perfect oasis away from “it all”. The sound of the surf at night was a great “background noise” for a restful sleep. Loved the Haleiwa Café, Shark’s Cove Grill, Ted’s Bakery and the shrimp stands along the road..Bob & LeslieCincinnati, Ohio

Thanks so much for your hospitality. Your house surpassed what we were expecting. It's clean, cozy and private. We fell in love with "our beach" and we're already planning a trip back for next year. We hardly left the North Shore and enjoyed the laid back, quiet life for a few days. Thank you!

Our stay at Ke Iki Beach hale was the perfect way to begin our visit to Hawaii. Everything was as advertised. Clean, neat & well appointed, the cottage had everything we needed. A perfect oasis away from “it all”. The sound of the surf at night was a great “background noise” for a restful sleep. Loved the Haleiwa Café, Shark’s Cove Grill, Ted’s Bakery and the shrimp stands along the road.. Bob & Leslie Cincinnati, Ohio

There really are not enough kind words to describe our stay. The beach was so spectacular. I think in the eight days we were there we might have counted 25 people on the beach. The cottage was great and the Valentines Day dinner cooked by Jill was great. We will be back next year and are planning a wedding. Much Mahalo's Pat & Donna

We had a wonderful stay at Sunset Beach - the cottage was exactly as the photos showed and surpassed our expectations because it was SO clean, homely and well appointed. It was a privilege to stay in such an amazing place and we would reccommend it without hesitation.

We'd highly recommend Ke Iki cottage. Location, beach, privacy more than met our expectations. Great place to relax after the Honolulu Marathon and perfect location for the Pipeline Masters.

We liked the owners, who manage their rental as friendly professionals: quick replies and offers to help. We liked the locale: easy access to a quality market, the Waimea Valley for indigenous culture, and more beach than we could explore. We liked the conveniences and appointments of the cottage: a working kitchen and washer/dryer were "treats" after a week in a hotel; the ipod player gave us joint access to our music; the WiFi connection was fast and reliable; we felt safe and secure. We'd rather have had less rain (mid-Oct.), a proper chef's knife and a way to live in the tropics without sighting an occasional palmetto bug indoors. Net: we enjoyed our stay and readily recommend this opportunity to others.

Thank you so much for renting us your beautiful cottage. It is much better seen in person than on the website. =) We had such a great time and felt so comfortable and relaxed (but partly because we were in NorthShore). We greatly appreciate your hospitality and tips. We will be back soon and will give you a buzz when the time comes. Mahalo & AloooooooooHA!

We loved our home away from home. The place was so nice, clean and a few steps from the most awesome beach.

This is the place

Our main purpose was to relax and learn to surf. At first we were not very focused on the house, because we were not expecting to spend much time on it (only to sleep). But then we arrived to this cottage and fall in love... with her and with each other again :) The place is wonderfull, you have everything you need inside and outside... and you will stay in the famous "7 mile miracle" of surf. Use your bikes and explore all the beaches near the cottage, but if you don't want to exercise than just walk 2 minutes and relax on the beautifull beach a few meters away from the house. Lovely small town Hale'iwa is just 10 minutes drive but again if you don't want go that much far, you have it all just walking distance from the house: Foodland, Starbucks and some nice small restaurants. Last but not least, the hosts were great and gave us the tips we needed when we asked for it. We hope to visit you again soon... Marta and Rui

This property was a delightful beach get-away and is perfect for a couple! The hosts provide everything to make this a home away from home, including tips on local and nearby eateries and sites to see. Every thing we needed to just enjoy the beautiful beaches was available - beach towels, beach mats, folding chairs to name a few. The stunning beaches were steps away from the loft home and several others are in biking/driving range. Thanks for hosting us for the week, we truly enjoyed our stay!

What a fabulous place for a vacation. The house is the perfect size for 2 people and has all the amenities you need. Even snorkel gear, beach chairs, coolers and bikes! The location is great-right in the middle of all the great beaches (although the private beach right next door is the best!) And we loved the short drive to Haleiwa for the restaurants, shopping and ocean activities. We enjoyed watching "Java" the chocolate lab chase his ball into the ocean. What a good dog!

Our week at the Ke Iki Be...

Our week at the Ke Iki Beach hale was absolutely great, particularly compared to the following week that we had to spend in Waikiki. Owner was very helpful and always available if needed, still with all the privacy you could want.We’ve done the vacation rental gig before, and this place is a great value. You’ll be hard pressed to find a nicer place and better location in the price range. My one complaint is that we didn’t go in the winter when the legendary surf was rolling. That’s the next trip!Super cool experience, nothing but the good juju at Ke Iki Beach hale...

Perfection in every way! We just spent two weeks at the cottage and I didn't want to leave. It was just great. The North Shore is a magic place and the location of their property is superb, and so were they. The running path takes you through a beautiful display of sneak peeks at amazing beaches and a lush envelopment of plants that will make you stop and inhale the Island scents. Pipeline is just up the way and Sunset is just a "2" mile jog or drive.  We highly reccomend this place, it's immpecably clean, has an amazing beach, just walk to snorkeling, and oh yes, wake up to the sound of Roosters, what more could you ask for! We loved it and give it an extremely positive reccomendation. Enjoy! Julie and Todd

We started out a recent 4-island trip with a stay at this fabulous cottage on North Shore's Ke Iki Beach. Despite traveling with 2 teenage nieces (thus, 3 females and LOTS of luggage!), this cottage was spacious and beautiful with all the amenities you could ask for. The girls especially liked sleeping in the loft and the small touches like Hawaii-filmed DVDs; I loved drinking my coffee on the porch/lanai in the morning & listening to the nearby surf and peacefulness of island birds singing. We all enjoyed the North Shore's beauty and laidback atmosphere, The hosts dining recommendations, and the surf instructor  recommended as well by the host Life is good -- can't wait to return!!!

We just spent Christmas and New Year's at this new Ke Iki Beach Cottage. And we loved it! Not only is it just steps away from the most beautiful beach on the island, with stunning waves and breathtaking sunsets, it has everything you need to make you feel at home instantly. It is tastefully decorated and has any amenity you can ask for and more. From a fully equipped kitchen (even with all the spices you need for cooking!) to a DVD Player. From high speed internet access to washer and dryer. The great host lives right next door and tells you about everything you need to know to make your vacation even more exciting. It's an amazing place to stay on the North Shore! If we could, we'd go back in a second, sit on the great lanai in the evening and listen to the waves breaking on the shore.

The house and everything in it is really top notch and is made for one couple - not much room for more than that. It included just about everything you need (TV/DVD, cooking utensils, ice maker, etc). The owner, who lives next door, makes it a point to make sure we enjoyed our stay. Would definitely recommend this place to others.

We stayed Ke iki beach hale 6 nights for our anniversary trip from Japan. (Japanese review in the bottom ↓) It was our first vacation rental experience, so we had some concern before the trip but it turned out to the ideal vacation in Hawaii! We really love the place like a heaven. Everything in the hale is more than considered and cared by the owners. We love the location (walking distance to many beautiful beaches, a grocery store & Food trucks), design (with high-end furniture), cleanness, amenities (plenty of stocks) and more and more! Furthermore, the property was located in a securely gated community, and our hale was connected to the main house where owner lives, so, we felt it safe during our stay. Wonderful host who always responsible to any needs that we had. We will definitely stay there again. Thank you for our dream vacation trip :) をノースショアに滞在したい日本人に強力にお勧めします!ガイドブックやテレビ番組(二度目の・・・)などで紹介されたKe iki Beachバンガローのすぐ近くです。バンガローの方は部屋数が多い事もあり少し賑やかな感じなので、静かな場所で、プライバシー重視でのんびり過ごしたい方には断然こちらのHaleをおすすめします。こちらはエアコンも完備です。オーナーのは親日家で片言の日本語も話すので英語が苦手な方でもコミュニケーションをとりやすいと思います。 バケーションレンタルを借りるにあたっては清潔さやセキュリティが気になる方が多いと思いますがの建物はとてもきれいに清掃されていて、タオルなどのアメニティも清潔でよいものがそろっています。シャンプー、コンディショナー、歯ブラシ、髭剃りなどは用意されていないので持参する必要があります。(近くのフードランドでも売っています) ホテルと違いセキュリティボックスがないこともあり、セキュリティ面で少し不安もあったのですが、メイン道路から一本入ったKe ikiロードからさらにデジタルロックのゲートで遮られていて、セキュリティコードを入力しないと建物までアクセスができない事、またオーナーも隣に住んでいるという事でビーチや道路から直接アクセスできるバケレンよりは安心できると思います。Haleの入り口もデジタルロックなのでカギをなくしたりする心配もありません。 最寄りのケイキビーチは静かで人も少なく、とてもリラックスできます。それ以外にもシュノーケルで有名なシャークスコーブにも歩いていけますし、サーフィンで有名なワイメアベイやサンセットビーチにも自転車で5分程度です。滞在中は自転車も無料で使えます。スーパーマーケットもFoodlandが徒歩5分程度(Sharks coveの前)、ガーリックシュリンプなどのフードトラックもその傍にあり、一度到着すれば車がなくても生活するのに不便はありません。もしレンタカーがあれば車で10-15分ぐらいでハレイワの町にも出かけられるので、買い物や観光も楽しめます。 全く英語ができない方だとを通しての予約が一番不安かもしれません。予約した後にキャンセルやダメージの保険を進める画面が出てきますが、この保険はアメリカ在住者のみが対象なので加入しないように気を付けてください。 での予約方法などは今後ブログなどで詳しく紹介したいと思っています。

Awesome Host, Great Accommodations, Perfect Location

The owner was the perfect host. He gave my wife and me all the space we wanted but was always there if we had a question or needed anything. Having lived on the North Shore for 25 years, he is an absolute wealth of information on the area. Like me, the owner is an avid surfer and directed me to the best place to rent a board, the best breaks for me and other useful pointers. We came back from a walk one time and there was something under the windshield wiper of our car. It was a surf report for the next day he had placed there - nice touch! He was very communicative prior to our arrival. Superb host! The cottage is exactly as represented in the pictures. All the finishes are high end. The bed is very comfortable, we both slept great. A lot of thought went into this place. We had everything we needed: coffee maker, tea kettle, corkscrew, etc. The brand new washer and dryer came in very handy! The location could not be better, very centrally located. Walking distance to Foodland, Shark’s Cove, surfboard rental, two minute walk to the beach. Short drive to Waimea, Ted’s, Haleiwa, etc, etc. Overall our trip was as close to perfect as we could get. Thanks!! we’ll be back! Chuck & Claudia R.

Perfect home, great location and wonderful hosts!

We knew when we received our confirmation we could say the experience would be exactly what we were hoping for. Absolutely everything about the home, location and stay was perfect. But what separated this experience from other good rental episodes was the exceptional communication and genuine care administered by the hosts. We were immediately made to feel like welcomed guests and the friendly attitude and fun banter was certainly appreciated. There’s no doubt we would look to stay here again and the owners deserve every positive review they’ve received. Thank you! P&C

Ke Iki Beach Hale Cottage

This cottage is a perfect location for enjoying the North Shore. The beach is close, snorkeling near, dining and sights within close range. Our proprietor was accomodating and friendly, making himself easily available for local need suggestions. A perfect place, we didn’t want to leave! We stayed for two weeks and could have used another week to explore more. We plan returning and staying here again.

Very impressive in every respect. Exceeded expectations

Ke Iki Beach Hale was recommended to us and we were not disappointed. It is meticulously clean, beautifully appointed and very comfortable. The space has a wonderful vibe and the surrounds make it feel like you are on retreat. Walk 100metres and you are on the beach. Cycle up the path a bit and you are being mesmerized by the waves at Pipeline. Continue cycling and you are at Sunset beach. Or go the other way from Ke Ike Beach Hale and you are at Waimea Bay. Foodland is walking distance for all your needs. And bbqs on the balcony were appreciated. The bed is great (but don’t forget to duck, the ceiling is angled and I got caught a couple of times). Your host is extremely helpful, friendly and full of local tips if u ask. His background is hospitality and tourism and it shows. Totally professional in every respect and very genuine. What u see is what you get. Book with absolute confidence. We sure hope to come back

THE location on the North Shore!

My wife and I loved this spot! Location is right where you want to be. Close to everything! Apartment was clean, modern, and very comfortable. Privacy was nice too. We really enjoyed riding the beach cruisers on the bike path and being so close to the ocean. Host was super helpful and definitely knows the island well. We will be staying here again!

This cottage was perfect. A very quiet neighborhood with great beach access.

It was very well equipped and the owner was very helpful and approachable. The bed was dreamlike and air conditioning was definitely a bonus for us! With only a two minute walk to a beach with enormous waves, we are looking forward to staying here again as soon as we can.
