We have stayed at numerous homes on the north shore and this one was far and away the cleanest, most up-to-date home. The location cannot be beat - you can walk/bike to foodland, food trucks, etc, or to pipeline to watch the surfers. Water is swimmable directly outside the house, and just a short trip to sunset, three tables, or waimea. Kids loved having their own twin beds, crab hunting, star gazing, and basically having miles of beach to themselves. There's nothing like sitting outside to watch a north shore sunset from your lanai. This home exceeded all our expectations!
