Thank you for letting us shack up for a few days. The house and location were spectacular! The proximity to all the activities on the North Shore made it the perfect spot for our family. We could sit and watch the ocean forever!

Wow!! We were pleasantly surprised at how amazing the house/beach/sunset was. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

--James & friends - Sandy, Utah


Hale Moana was perfect for us this week. We loved each sunset and crashing waves below us. Thank you for sharing this amazing home with us. 

--Mike & Elaine - Mapleton, Utah


We have completely enjoyed our stay in your home. Love the North Shore location. Spent hours sitting outside watching the ocean before and after our daily adventures. Thanks for the Memories!!  :)

What a lovely, lovely home... Called paradise... We had the most relaxing time... Thank you so very much for sharing and providing "EVERYTHING" needed with Aloha! If we slept in the garage could we live here and care for your guests? Again thank you.

Aloha Sandi. Thank you for your generosity and allowing us a second stay. Love your house and yard :). See you next time.

Aloha Sandi, we had a wonderful time AGAIN at Hale Moana. We will be Back!!!! Thank You.

Aloha Sandi. Thank you for sharing your beautiful vacation home. The privacy of your home was perfect for our 30th Anniversary celebration. Nothing better in this world than waking up to the ocean views! : ) The house was well equipped and very comfortable. We will definitely recommend to all our family and friends. Mahalo -

--Tom & Pandora - Lansing, Michigan

You thought of everything at this house!!! We had a great time. Grilled burgers in the backyard, had some fresh pineapples while watching the surfers... just a perfect place to make lasting memories w/ friends and family. I will book this one again! I know the next 4 days at a hotel will fail in comparison to this. Great job! Great house! Hale Moana Rocks!

--Jon & friends - Overland Park, Kansas


Hale Moana was the perfect setting for us! We came to celebrate our friend's 60th birthday! Friends since 13 years old! We decompressed, reconnected, and played games 'til the wee hours of the night! The mornings were amazing drinking coffee watching the surfers & the sunsets were stunning! We'll be back!

Thank you -- Gerry & Emi and Terri & Johnny - Corona, California


Hale Moana has been a dream come true! Thank you for having such a comfy home to unwind in. The stars, waves, moon and breeze will stay with us after this trip. Aloha! Hawaii forever!!! 

--Shannon & Jordan - Los Angeles, California 


This was our 2nd visit to this amazing home in paradise. It definitely won't be our last. 

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us - what a treat it has been to wake up each day to the sound of the waves crashing and the seemingly endless ocean view. 

--Cyndi & friends - San Jose, California & Portland, Oregon


This is a beautiful paradise. Thank you so much for everything. We would love to come back often. 

--Tony & Dawn - Springfield, Missouri

Better than I could have imagined. We enjoyed ourselves so much. You thought of everything. The facilities are just beautiful and the view is without compare. If you want to sell, let us know. ; )

--Stan & Ann - West Chester, Ohio


We loved our stay at this beautiful beach home. We enjoyed dinners outside watching the sunsets : ) Your house is amazing, like a paradise. Thank you.

--David & family - Prague, the Czech Republic



Thank you so much for sharing your gorgeous home with us. The views are spectacular, and we loved sitting in your garden with a glass of wine watching the sunset while the kids ran around on the grass, playing and looking for lizards, and searching for seashells on the beach. Your hospitality is second to none. What memories we have all shared here, thank you!

--Katie, Rob, Indi, Johnny & Rosie - Woodlands, Perth, Western Australia

Can't beat the location of this house! We loved the beautiful sunsets, watching the sea turtles, and the unexpected summer thunderstorm. I have to admit that when we arrived we were so HOT and wondered how we would make it through the heat but we managed. Go stand by the a/c in the one bedroom to cool off. :-) We had a great time in Hawaii & hope to return soon. 

--John, Meredith, Lucas, Madelyn & Evan - Simi Valley, California


Wow! What a great location! What can be better than your own beach in Hawaii? No crowds, no noise, just the sound of the ocean. We had everything we needed right here. Thank you so much! P.S. The wine and the coffee were a very nice touch and very much appreciated. : )

--Kurt, Iolanta, Electra (14), Jessica (13), & Kristopher (6) - Sparks, Nevada


This is our second stay at Hale Moana and once again did not disappoint! The sunsets were amazing every night : )  We discovered a new restaurant Uncle Bo's which was by far the best food we have found on the North Shore. Sandi - you are the best! Thank you for your hospitality! Mahalo,

--Brian, Laura, Gordon, Reilly & Mallory - Lake Tapps, Washington


It is hard to beat the location! We had a very nice stay here and hope to come again someday. Couldn't ask for a better place to watch the kids play in the sand & enjoy sunsets every night! Thanks & Mahalo!

--Scott & Jane, Miles, Lilly, Briggs, Sam & Savannah - West Valley City, Utah


This will probably be our last trip to Hawaii (our 6th time). So glad we spent it here! Beautiful place and gracious hostess. Sandi thinks of every little detail to make house comfortable. Aloha!

--Carole, Bill, Tony & Shawn - Highlands Ranch, Colorado

Location, location, location! What a wonderful beach house. We thoroughly enjoyed unwinding at this lovely place. My husband and I arrived from San Diego, my son and his girlfriend flew in from Singapore and my daughter from Australia! It was a wonderful reunion. Thank you! Aloha

--Janella & Andy, Zac & Cat, Rissa & Stevie - San Diego, California, (Singapore & Australia)

Hawaii was amazing but coming to your home made it even better! The days on the beach in the water and sand so close to home is more than we can ask for. The views from every room my family really enjoyed this home. When I told my three year old we had to leave the beach house he was very sad. Hope to come back some day. Thanks for everything!!!

--Joseph, Zuleyka, and Emiliano (3) & Javier and Adela - Redford, Michigan


This is our third year at Hale Moana, and hopefully there are many more to come. It is so nice to have a piece of this slice of paradise to come back to each year. The view is beyond mesmerizing. And the North Shore and Oahu as a whole has so much to offer. Swim with the sharks, outside of a cage!, with ocean diving at Haleiwa Harbor. It's life changing. Makua Beach on the west side is beautiful, and sometimes dolphins are right off shore. Lanikai is also beautiful and nothing beats jumping off the rock at Waimea Bay. Thank you for sharing your amazing home with us!

--Janine and Jim - Quincy, Massachusetts

We loved our stay at hale moana. The yard was perfect for watching beautiful sunsets over the ocean. Snorkeling on the reef down the beach was convenient and amazing! We love how the living room opens up and the lulling sound of the ocean...  Looking forward to coming back!

--Jeremy, Laurel, Haley, Clara & Zack - Pullman, Washington


This is the third time our family has come to Hale Moana and each time it has been wonderful! Our first day was awesome, had whales breeching in the distance. We took advantage of your hiking guide books and did some exploring we had not done before on the island. Thank you again for sharing your lovely home! Mahalo!!

--Rich & Laura - Concord, California


Enjoyed our stay at Hale Moana!! Relaxed and didn't venture out every day, cuz the view was so nice here : )  Checked out Roy's @Turtle Bay, The Beachhouse and Haleiwa Joe's - ALL GREAT!! Watched the surfers & some whales in the distance. Enjoyed seeing the Red Crested Cardinals every day.... Thanks and we enjoyed the wine & coffee too!! : )  Mahalo

--Kevin & Benita, Gary & Lori - Fairmont, Minnesota


Hale Moana is one of the best on the North Shore. Will definitely come back soon! Aloha! Thanks Sandi!

--Eric, Annamaria & Giancarlo - Menlo Park, California


This place is amazing! We loved everything. The house is gorgeous and its view is just breathtaking. We enjoyed taking morning walks on the beach and watching the sunset from our yard. We made great friends with the neighbor and his dog. Farfel? We saw a sea turtle on the beach and could see whales in the distance. Our Oahu vacation wouldn't have been as amazing if it wasn't for you letting us stay in this beautiful house. We hope we can come back sometime! Sincerely - 

--David, Ellen, Sarah & Heather -- New Boston, New Hampshire


As always, just perfect and we didn't stay long enough. We love our 2nd home. A hui hou.

--Colleen, Karsten, Tom & Kelly - Aliso Viejo, California


Had a wonderful week. Hard to leave.

--Bonnie, Philip, Lyda, Mitch - Wenatchee, Washington

Words can't describe how much we enjoyed our stay here.

Thanks Sandi. --Chris, Riki, Tommy & Amy - Fulton Illinois
