Ultra modern design, luxuriously appointed and close to beaches and shops

My husband and I had a five star stay at the Ke Iki beach studio. The studio is located within a secure complex of a few modern houses which is well landscaped and close to both swimming and surfing beaches. The studio itself is extremely well appointed and everything is brand new and exactly as described in the listing including huge flat screen tv, Bose speaker and super comfy bed and sofa.

The studio has its own private entrance and lanai overlooking the landscaped front garden with new barbecue. Also a brand new set of bikes with locks available to use which was great for cruising to different beaches or food trucks along the bike path. Parking is really easy just next to the house and studio. Owners Aaron and Anna are easy to get hold of if they needed and gave us some great advice on places to go visit. Can not rate this place highly enough.

Perfect !!

I stayed for 6 nights and loved the studio. I met Aaron as I was unloading my car and not only is he really nice but I helped with my suitcase too. Everything is brand new, very clean and nice. This little gem is right in front of the bike so great for a morning run or bike ride. Perfect location and I highly recommend it.

We loved this modern studio!

You can tell someone you paid attention to every detail. The bedding is super soft and the sheets smelled like flowers. I loved the wood work from the front doors to the cabinets to the outdoor bed. I love a good shower and this one certainly does not disappoint! I had the pleasure of meeting Aaron and he was very kind and easy to talk to. We were gone all day but enjoyed coming back to this place at the end of our adventures.

Amazing!

We loved this super clean, super modern beach getaway. Aaron & Anna went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed. 5 gold stars.

Beautiful quiet place on NS

Aaron and Anna are the perfect hosts !! They did not leave out any details. Studio is perfect and clean with lots of upgrades. Beautifully decorated and super comfy bed and sheets !!! My favorite place each day was having my coffee on the porch on the gorgeous Indonesian bench outside. The perfect quiet spot to relax and work! The entire area is perfectly manicured. You can tell they have worked so hard on this beautiful place! Just around the corner from beach on the beach side. I could not have picked a better place to stay! We loved every minute of our stay! We will definitely be back to this gorgeous place! It's hard to find something nice and affordable on the NS! ❤️❤️❤️ ALOHA💕?

Slice of heaven on the best part of the island!

We loved this place! It was very easy to find with secure parking. The landscaping was beautiful and we enjoyed access to the outside shower. The rental was clean, modern and had a fantastic bathroom! The bed was so comfortable. The beach was steps away and we needed everything for a great day at the beach. The owners were wonderful! We would highly recommend this rental and look forward to returning!

What a great stay at Ke Iki Beach!!

Aaron and Anna were fantastic hosts during our stay at their beautiful studio. Everything was modern, newly remodeled and very high quality. The property is very secure as there is a security gate for all access. Getting to the beach was nothing more than about a 5 minute walk. Parking is easy and convenient and the environment is very quiet. I highly recommend this property to anyone wanting to spend time on the north shore.

Wonderful location and accommodations!

Location is perfect on the North Shore - just a few minutes walk to a beautiful beach. Shark's Cove and other beaches, food trucks, and a grocery store are all about an 8 minute walk away. The studio is beautiful and clean. Aaron is very friendly and available if you need anything. We definitely stay there again.

Perfect in every way!

We had a great time on the North Shore in this studio. We've stayed in a few of Aaron's rentals and they've all been great, including this one. The listing is accurate in every way. The studio is spotless with very nice furniture/appliances/finish work. The property is secure and easy to find. The bikes are a nice touch, along with beach towels, beach chairs, coolers and snorkeling gear. Having a washer and dryer makes a huge difference on a beach vacation. Aaron is around for any questions or suggestions if you're new to the area, but not intrusive in any way. The studio is perfect for a couple who wants to experience the North Shore in a comfortable, clean studio with easy access to grocery shopping, food trucks, Sharks Cove for snorkeling, Pipeline, Sunset Beach, Waimea Bay etc. There are lots of quiet beaches nearby and the path makes it fast and easy to get around, either by walking or using the bikes/locks provided. We've stayed in 7+ rentals on the North Shore and Aaron is by far the most responsive owner. He cares about his properties and he truly wants his guests to have a great vacation. I wish he had a bigger place to accommodate my family because we'd definitely return with our kids. I highly recommend renting from Aaron in the future and I'm certain we will be back again, hopefully very soon.

North Shore Gem with Great Amenities!

My wife and I stayed at Aaron & Anne's studio on the North Shore and it was probably one of the best vacation rental experience's we've had. My wife loved the cleanliness and quality of the unit. I loved the location to the beach and surf spots which were only a short walk or bike (bikes provided) ride away. This may sound weird but we both loved the bathroom facilities, you'll need to experience it to understand, ha! Aaron&Anne were very helpful with tips and tricks to getting around and where to eat. Nothing but good things to say about the place, the hosts, the location, and the north shore. Great trip all around, will definitely be giving them a call next time I'm on the island! -G&L

A Must stay in North Shore!!

North shore doesn’t disappoint and Aaron & Anna’s modern luxury accommodations put this vacation home way above many sought out stays we have experienced. The attention to detail (check out the toilet!) and personal touch sets this place above par! Aaron met us on several occasions making sure everything was perfect and made awesome recommendations including last minute massage appointments and provided us with local/insider info. Book now!!

Great contemporary north shore rental !!!

We give this rental 5 stars! The location is great with a 2 min walk to one of the best beaches on the North Shore of Oahu. This rental was newly constructed in exquisite Indonesian style furnishings and contemporary finishes. It is very comfortable and clean . The owner Aaron was very hospitable and quick to answer all of our questions. He gave us great advice on places to visit as he has lived on the North Shore for years . We had fun riding the new bikes he has for the property on a bike path that runs along side the ocean . It’s a gated property and very safe . The kitchen is stocked with everything needed for cooking and has a new barbecue outside kitchen area. The rental has a large sectional sofa with big screen TV, beautiful granite counters with custom cabinetry in the kitchen and bathroom. The bed is very comfortable and the rental has air-conditioning which is nice after coming in from the beach. We will be coming back. We had a great vacation staying in this unique property .

Perfect Place on the North Shore!!

The studio is even more amazing in person than in the pictures. Location is perfect for exploring the North Shore because you avoid traffic from Lani’s (Turtle Beach). Aaron is a great host, and I love that he lays out everything you need to know about the studio in the guestbook. Being able to do laundry there was such a plus. Definitely going to book with Aaron again when we return to the North Shore. Mahalo Aaron!

1st class accommodations!

Aaron and Anna’s place is a beautiful little place of heaven in paradise! The studio is equipped with everything we needed to enjoy a great trip to North Shore. We biked and walked everywhere- almost regretted renting a car, but needed it to go fishing in Haleiwa! We walked to two of the best snorkeling beaches on the island, Sharks Cove and Three tables. We used the bikes on the path to Teds Bakery, Foodland and the coffee shop and the food trucks. We used the beach chairs and were respectful to use the outside shower to get the salt and sand off before entering the studio. Great bathroom and toilet, and a very comfortable bed. Fantastic surround stereo and Huge TV with Showtime Epix, Netflix and Amazon availability. We had enough privacy, very quiet at night, enjoyed the outside grill and felt very much Ohana!! Aloha and Mahalo Aaron and Anna, you are professional gracious hosts, we can’t wait to come back!

Perfect Getaway!

The studio was amazing!! We stayed here for our honeymoon and it was better than expected. Great location - two minute walk to secluded Ke Ike Beach or short bike ride to Sunset Beach. Foodland is just down the street so it was nice to be able to pick up a few things to keep at the house. Everything is the studio is beautifully redone and very well kept. Aaron and Anna are super helpful and friendly. They gave us great restaurant and activity suggestions. We will 100% be coming back to stay again!

PERFECT HOME IN PARADISE

Ke Iki Beach Hale studio was the most perfect home. My boyfriend and I stayed for 4 nights to explore the North shore and we got SO LUCKY finding this gem. Aaron and Ana are the most gracious hosts. They take such amazing care of their property inside and out. Check in was so easy. The studio is huge, so spacious, clean and bright. It's quiet day and night. I also really appreciated the tropical landscaping- lots of plants in every window. We ran into Aaron a few times going in and out and he was so kind to spend time chatting with us and giving us some of the inside scoop. Really neat guy. I am recommending this studio and his other available spaces to all my friends and family members. We can't wait to visit the island again. Ke Iki Road is perfect location. So important to have parking space as the main street gets crowded. Close to food, beaches, and short car distance from Haleiwa. OMG I miss this place.

Amazing!

Great location and very nice owner. Super clean, very 21st century!!

Perfection!

This property is fabulous! The owner has spared no expense in the creation of this studio. The attention to detail was incredible, all new construction with beautiful decor, custom furniture and woodwork. High-end everything, clean, new, comfortable. Air conditioning was a big plus for us. Bikes, towels, beach chairs, gas grill, outdoor shower, laundry were all available. Location = perfect for exploring the north shore. You can walk to the beach in a few minutes - do not miss the sunsets there! We loved coming back to the studio after a day of exploring - it has a wonderful sofa and television setup, very comfortable bed and sheets. The bathroom is wonderful. I was very impressed by the detailed notes provided to guests about everything in the studio. Aaron takes hospitality very seriously and offers a wonderful place to rent. I was sad to leave and can't wait to come back!

Just Perfect!

What a hidden gem this studio apartment is! My husband and I stayed at Aaron and Anna’s rental for 7 days. The studio is immaculate, has such character. The grounds surrounding the studio are beautiful and very well taken care of. Aaron and Anna were available for any questions we had, but not intrusive in any way. The bikes were such a nice amenity. We road to Ted’s every morning for breakfast. The bike trail is literally right outside the driveway gates. The location was also a plus, we had a couple minute walk to a beautiful beach. 10 minutes from Haleiwa, which is a great place to enjoy dinner. Food land was very close for last minute pick ups. Aaron had beach chairs, coolers, and beach towels for the unit which was another plus for us. If your looking for a beautifull quiet place to stay on the North Shore this is the place!

Great location. Great space!

Ideal location on the North Shore. Short walk to beach and food truck. Friendly hosts. Immaculate accommodations.

Such a perfect little tucked away gem!

I booked this location very last minute and was so pleased with everything that I ended up extending my stay a few days longer. Owners were so accommodating and friendly and the accommodations were comfortable but upscale. Would highly recommend!! Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Well Appointed Studio, Amazing Location

We had a great stay in this well laid out and well appointed studio apartment. Spacious and with high quality finishes, you can tell that thought and care has gone into this space. All the most important things are here - comfortable bed, well equipped kitchen, amazing TV and surround sound system. Clean and tidy. Everything brand-new. The location can't be beat. Right beside an amazing beach that wasn't crowded. Near grocery shopping and surfing. Wonderful hosts who were there to make recommendations when asked but also gave us our privacy. Overall a great stay. Highly reccomend.

Mary S

Great location, beautiful space

Just a few minutes walk to a quieter part of the beach. A bike ride to the grocery store and darling food truck park! Aaron the owner was around and happy to suggest things to do. If we return to Oahu we’ll definitely stay here again!

Every detail exceeded our expectations

We knew that this studio was going to be amazing from the photos, but even those don’t do this place justice. It seemed as if no expense had been spared and we truly had no complaints. The location couldn’t be better with the beach only a few steps away and food trucks close by as well. For anything slightly farther away the beach cruisers made getting there an enjoyable experience itself. And the hosts couldn’t have been more helpful with their depth of local knowledge. We will definitely be making it a point to stay here again!

Very clean, spacious, and perfect location!

Very quiet location and walking steps to the most beautiful banzai beach, the bikes are lots of fun to ride to sunset beach, and the beach chairs are a great asset. The bed and sheets are sooooo comfortable! the details on this property are absolutely amazing and you will not be disappointed. we cooked on the grill every night on the beautiful patio and jammed out! will definitely be coming back!

Epic Location - Outstanding Accommodations

No better location for a get a way or in town for business. We have stayed at both the cottage and studio and both are outstanding. The studio is first class all the way while the cottage is well appointed and feels like home. Either way you wont regret your stay. Both Aaron and Anna are genuine and easy to get along with. The upkeep, staging and oversight of the property is meticulous and well thought. Its affordable and with easy access to everything. We'll be back year after year. We strongly recommend this property to anyone.

Great hideaway!

Our stay was really pleasant and we had everything we needed. The rental is exactly as pictured and everything was really easy - check in, access, amenities, etc. Very friendly hosts, too. Thanks again!

Aaron was a great host & the place was awesome.

Love the place & the location, didn't need to use the car much because the rental included bikes, beach chairs & beach towels. The place was very high tech from the TV to the toilet. Highly recommend renting from Aaron & Anna.

Joann C

Cozy getaway, great location

Our stay at Aaron and Anna's place was great. Ideal location (close to great beaches, food), clean, and high end amenities. There was a lot of attention to detail put into the design and comfort for guests. Everything was modern, but had character. I would definitely stay here again, and will consider their other rental if we return in need of a larger place. Glad my family found this little gem.
