About this listing
This house is all about being right on the water. A seawall provides protection from waves at high tide. A North Shore Beach House with the comforts of a nice home.
Creature comforts include: Mini-split air conditioner, WiFI, and wireless Sonos music system that streams pandora music of your choice with a touch of a button. TV shows and movies streamed via Netflix. Lighting is all dim-able low voltage halogen so you can create an atmosphere to suit the moment.

With the air conditioner, you can keep the windows closed to minimize road noise. Off shore breeze keeps mosquitoes at bay. Portable gas barbecue for grilling on the patio.

Favorite things to do: 1) Greet the morning with a cup of coffee on the lanai and watch the sunrise. 2) Go to a new beach every day. 3) If you don't mind a bit of traffic around Sunset beach and the sea turtles at Laniakea AND you need to cool off - take a drive to Haleiwa for shave ice and a stand up paddle board lesson. 4)Explore the road less traveled, south towards Kaneohe-Kailua area all the way to Waimanalo beach.
Other than that, sit back and relax in your own private slice of Hawaii. Aloha!

Interaction with guests
I am new to Airbnb, but I have been renting this house short term since 2012. I have 52 reviews with average 4.8 stars out of 5 on another site. We call the house Pele Ohana. I can offer local suggestions via text or email.
This is the country side of the island. Great uncrowded beaches, roadside produce, shrimp shacks, surf events, local vibe, and fun to explore.
A car is almost required to get around. Carport is too small for a giant SUV so be careful.
