Clay made us very welcome and provided us with extras to make use of. e.g the binoculars were great at the pipeline. We loved the nice modern shower and the bed was very comfortable. Many thanks!

Clay was a fantastic host. He communicated with me regularly before my trip getting me excited about hanging out with the turtles at sunset! The location was the best and just what I needed for a bit of quiet after a few days in Waikiki. The room was great and the bed so comfortable I slept 10 hours on my first night! The waterfall shower was awesome as was the balcony to have a coffee in the morning looking out to the ocean and have a couple of beers in the evening.

My husband and I were very happy with Clayton's accomdation. Clayton description was accurate. Clayton's location was great for us as we had a car. He suggested quite a few things for us to do, like sunsets, sugar factory and different beaches and let us know when he saw a turtle on his local beach! (Amazing!!) Clayton was working during the day time so we didn't see a huge amount of him. The pool was also an added bonus.

Clays place is a short walk to an amazing beach that is not crowded, and has everything! The bed and pillows are comfy, the shower is great. There is nowhere to stock up on supplies in the immediate area, but the town is about a 7 minute drive away. Clay was very communicative, and supplied all of the beach toys you could imagine.

Clay’s place is awesome. The renovations he has done are beautiful. Also many personal touches - keurig in the room, a bottle of water, sunscreen, snorkel gear to use, nightlights to get around the hall in the dark, laundry, etc. Very comfy and NICE! Clay is a great host! Absolutely top shelf!

Clay's place is nicely located close to the beach with nice views from the balcony. His place is just outside busy touristy town which gives you both quiet beach reachable on foot and busy town few miles away. There are also nice hikes and secluded beach few miles drive toward the north west coast. Clay is super responsive and helps with everything as also provides dozens of things for the beach. One amazing restaurant is less than 2miles away and it is called Paradise Fresh Food. You will also find farmers market on Saturday at Sugar Mill.

Clay was a great host and communication was super easy. I could even enter the appartment before the checkin time. The room is spacious and clean and comes with a lot of extras as snorkelling gear, body boards and a coffee machine. There are no restaurants or supermarket in the town itself but it is only a short drive to lovely Haleiwa and all the gresr beaches are nearby as well. Thank you!
