“Great beach location”

The location of Owen's Retreat is amazing. A long white sand beach is just outside the gate. There were very few people on the beach and there are a couple of places to snorkel right nearby. The Yellow House is right next to Mokuleia Beach Park which is used by surfers and parasailers. The house is older with simple furnishings and décor. If you are expecting fancy and modern, this is not the place for you. Everything was clean and the kitchen was stocked with all the dishes, pots and pans etc needed for preparing meals. There are two barbecue grills to share with other guests staying. The deck is large with a large table and comfortable seating. One negative about The Yellow House is that the back of the cottage is right next to Farrington Highway and the noise from the road was bothersome. We needed to close the windows in the bedrooms but the caretakers (Bernadette and Rueben) gave us a fan to keep cool which solved the problem. Right across the street is the Dillingham Airfield which has small planes going all day long but not usually at night. We enjoyed watching the planes, gliders and skydivers but it can be noisy. Owen's Retreat is an hour's drive away from Honolulu so be prepared to drive if you want to visit some of the sites in the city. The town of Haleiwa is a 15 minute drive away and has many great restaurants and shops that we enjoyed. It also has a good grocery store and we bought food there to cook at home.

There is absolutely nothing negative to say about the Yellow house. If you want quiet, the beach and real Hawaii, you want here. All you need is your swim suit and your tooth brush. It is wonderful and I hope no one knows about it.

Wonderful get away! We stayed in the Yellow House on the North Shore. Beautiful beach just steps away! Morning coffee on the beach watching the sunrise & evening cocktails watching the sunset & watching the whales!
Place is very simple. You definitely need a car as it is way out towards the end of the island. Located right on the main road, traffic is noisy but we got use to it. Also across the street is an air base that can be noisy. So if you're looking for quiet this is not the place for you. But if you're looking for laid back & no crowds than it's perfect. Air base offers para-sailing, glider planes, etc. Beautiful beach & hiking at the end of the street.
House could use a few updates but all in all it worked for us. Caretakers were wonderful & assist with anything you need. I would definitely stay there again!
