Following a business trip to Oahu, I wanted to spend a few days on the North Shore and focus on relaxing and some snorkeling. from previous recent reviews saw here, I called Sharks Cove Rentals and was able to secure a room for two nights.
Check in was a breeze. I was in the "Board Room" which had a great Queen size bed and private bath right off the main common area and kitchen. Great wifi throughout the complex. I parked/secured the car behind the stockade fence (plenty of parking), then literally walked across the street to Shark's Cove for some of the best snorkeling in Oahu. I spent the next two days hanging out/snorkeling from the Three Tables Beach (excellent) through the Pupukea Park down to Shark's Cove all in easy walking distance. Shark's Cove Rentals has snorkeling equipment or you can rent at an adjacent surf shop ( I had brought my own). Popular place for snorkeling and given the location was able to hit the cove early and late which I literally had to myself for periods of time. Very quiet and relaxing in the evening.
The Pupukea Grill right next door, and the the Shark's Cove Grill just a bit further down. Great food a both. Also close walking distance to Foodland and Stabucks. While at Foodland don't forget to sign up as member (just give them a 10 digit code) for great discounts. Also of note was a great bike (running for me) path of about 3 miles from Three Tables Beach down to Ted's Bakery (great pastries, breakfasts).
All in all, great clean lodging, very friendly hosts, great location for beach and snorkeling, and nice place to hang out and just decompress a bit.
