If I could I would give more stars! Grazie Marie!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect stay! Marie welcomed us with fresh fruit from her beautiful garden. We are so glad we chose this location, in the North Shore, super close to Sunset beach (so beautiful!) and Ted’s Bakery (so good!). We had a great time and Marie gave us also suggestions for local beaches to visit and places where to eat. The studio was perfect and clean, free parking always available in front of the house, great hospitality, a wonderful garden...we could not have asked for a better place to stay. Mahalo Marie, we will certainly be back!

GREAT North Shore country experience!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay and it felt like we were visiting old friends when Marie welcomed us back with a great hug! We absolutely love the location of this cozy Northshore property. Marie ensures that all needs are met and that you feel welcomed. When we arrived, she had a platter of fresh fruit from her farm chilling in the fridge along with pitchers of citrus-infused fresh water and green tea. Be sure to read her description of the property to ensure that it is a fit for you. The unit is a studio which is especially great for 1 couple. We eat a plant-based diet and have food allergies, so we cook on vacation. The kitchenette does not have a stove, but is stocked with a full-size refrigerator, an induction single burner cooktop, toaster oven, rice cooker/steamer, microwave, hot water pot, toaster, dishes and various other items you might need (outdoor grill and patio seating for 2). The cooking space is limited, but we were organized and cooked full meals

They were having extensive utility work on their property and within the neighborhood. It was quite a mess, but they made every effort to ensure that we had a great parking space and clean area for entry to the ground-floor unit. We enjoyed mornings on the nearby beaches and days filled with sightseeing; the utility work was only a minor inconvenience.

The short walk to the the amazing North Shore, along with the peaceful vibe of this country location makes the Hawaiian Sunset Getaway a refreshing change from the fast-pace of Waikiki. We visit Hawaii to enjoy the beauty and energy of the islands, and this location is perfect for beaching without the crowds. We will absolutely stay with Ruth again, without hesitation. Thank you, Ruth!!

Just Like Home

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a nice quiet place away from it all and not overpriced then quit looking, you will not find a better place . Marie welcomed us like we were neighbours. The fresh local fruit and tea in the refrigerator was a welcome treat. Her studio was perfect for what we needed. John really enjoyed having the use of the bbq. She recommended a few local places to eat and true to her word they were excellent. I really enjoyed the fact that we could pick our own fresh oranges right from the tree outside our front door. It was very quiet but close (5 min. drive) to Sunset beach. Ted's Bakery is about a 5-8 min. walk away, great for breakfast or lunch, a must to try. We also ate at Papa Ole's by the Polynesian Cultural Centre, a local place that serves good food at a reasonable price. A car is a must. Internet works great.

Beautiful Apartment in Haleiwa

  • 5 of 5

Words could never describe what a wonderful experience it is to stay at this location. The owner Marie is warm and friendly and greeted us with fresh fruit from her garden along with home made ice cream waiting in the freezer. The apartment is walking distance to Ted's Bakery and the Sunset Beach and just a short drive to the Banzai Pipeline. The apartment is very well stocked with everything you need and the surroundings are lush. We would definitely stay here again on our next visit to Haleiwa.
