Our family feels so blessed to have had the opportunity to spend the weekend at the Hale Moana. We adored our short North Shore stay!

How can I describe this place! It's a live Hawaiian postcard! The panoramic view of the ocean, the sound of the waves and the blanket of stars at night is just a breathtaking experience plus you are treated with a wonderful phenomena of sunsets and moonsets (if you happen to stay on a full moon). Yes! That's what this place is all about. Absolutely memorable staycation. Thank you Sandi.

Thank you so, so much! We are here on our honeymoon from Florida. We have fallen in love with Hale Moana during our 3 days here and plan to return one day with our children in the future. This place is truly a paradise and you have gone above and beyond in preparing the home to feel like a second home to your guests. We spent time in Maui and the Big Island during our Hawaiian vacation - but nothing compares to this. Beautiful sunset views and watching the surfers... the cute little town down the road full of shops (we found so many gifts and souvenirs). It will be hard to leave. We will never forget this place. Thank you for the hospitality. We will be back. Mahalo, Love.

Mahalo Sandi for the use of your beautiful Hale Moana. It was a perfect vacation - our first to Hawaii! We relaxed and explored - it was wonderful and many good memories were made! Thank you!

Thank you so much for renting your home. It's location was perfect so we could enjoy time with family that lives in the area. We loved the little protected area for our kids to swim, the turtle we met on the beach, the lovely water, etc...  So amazing. We wish we had more time. Thank you!

Absolutely incredible! We swam, relaxed, hiked, walked through town, saw turtles and marveled at the sunsets. We are so happy we found your beautiful home & grateful that you share this amazing place. This is our first time in Oahu - thank you for making our family time here so special. We hope to come back again someday! Mahalo.

What a special place! We relaxed, swam, watched for whales, met a sea turtle and saw such amazing sunsets. My shell and sea glass collection grew also. Thank you so much for sharing your special home. It's obvious you put a lot of love into it. We will be back. It's impossible to imagine not coming back to this slice of heaven on the North Shore <3.

In celebration of our wedding anniversaries and birthdays - we wanted to do something special. And so we decided it was time to go see Hawaii. We were fortunate to discover the availability of your beach house on the North Shore of Haleiwa. My wife and I are from Springfield, Virginia and have been to Hawaii before (about 19 years ago... courtesy of the Navy), but we always had to stay at several hotels. But my brother and his wife are from Ponder, Texas (near Denton) and this was their first time in Hawaii. And so it was nice to be able to see the sights but enjoy your lovely home as our base (2nd home!) : ) so all this was really the icing on the cake for us. Thanks again for making your beach house available to us, because it's exactly what we wanted and needed. : )

We have loved our days in your house. We will always think of Hale Moana as our beloved spot on the North Shore. We so appreciate all the special touches you leave for guests. We can feel how much you love this home too. And always we are surprised by remarkable things. This time it was the whales! We saw so many straight out in the ocean - blowing and distant jumps! We saw turtles too - and incredible sunsets and stars. This really is a precious place. This trip it was Alan, Leilani, SB and me. We can't wait to come back again! Many, many thanks and much Aloha to you both. Love

Three generations came to your lovely home from the Big Island. The children enjoyed playing in the surf, we (parents and grand) enjoyed just relaxing watching and listening to the surf. The sunsets are amazing. Thank you for all the attention to little detail that you provided. We hope to visit again. Thanks for the wonderful "home" that you shared with us. God Bless.

My family and I were spoiled with five magnificent days at Hale Moana. The crashing waves, the gorgeous view, the evening sunsets, the spectacular star shows all helped us have an absolutely magical stay at this wonderful home. This house was perfect for us (2 adults & 4 teenagers) and had everything we could have possibly needed. Thank you so much Sandi! Letting other people experience this piece of heaven is truly a gift! Mahalo.

Mahalo Sandi! Thank you for sharing your amazing beach house with us! We enjoyed it so much, with its stunning views and comfortable layout. From waking up to the surf crashing on the rocks, through an evening sunset cocktail, this was the perfect retreat to relax and recharge. We enjoyed watching the whales in the distance and the surfers out front. This was the perfect getaway!

We booked this place because it was close to a wedding we attended at Waimea Valley, we ended up spending all but that time right here! Days watching waves and surfers, walking the beach - lots!, spotting turtles and whales! Evenings watching sunsets, playing card games, and just enjoying family time! Thanks for sharing your place and all the great info!

We can't thank you enough for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful home. It's rustic charm, unreal ocean view, dazzling sunsets, mesmerizing moonsets and your attention to every small detail made this a vacation to remember. Your thoughtful instructions, tips and tricks made everything so easy! Communication was top notch! Everything we needed for a great trip - beach gear, every kitchen thing imaginable and a relaxed "Hawaii" feel. Simply the best. Mahalo until next time!
