My wife and I stayed here during the first week of our honeymoon(also split a week between Maui and the Big Island). I chose to stay here the first week mainly for the surfing and the fact that is was very inexpensive and therefore allowing for "fancier" accommidations for the rest of the trip (wife chose).
As far as service I loved it but could honesty see where others could be slightly unnerved. When we arrived there was no check-in to speak of. Greg spotted us and showed us where our bungalow was. I asked if we needed to sign anything or give our credit card and he said we would deal with it later. This very laid back attitude helped relax and understand concepts such as "island time".
While there I purchased 2 surfboards with the intention of selling them both before I left. When I asked Greg where to sell them he encouraged me to take them home. I told him I didn't have a nice board bag so he said he would loan me his. I then explained that I would have several inter-island flights after I left his place and the expense of taking the board to Maui and the Big Island was not worth it. Now get this, he agrees to meet me at the Airport on the day of my departure back home(one week after I checked out) and brings my board in his board bag to HNL. He kept one of the boards and sold it himself and mailed me a check about a month later.
Overall, if you are going to the North Shore to enjoy the area and luxury isn't important then this is your place. If you want fancy accommidations than stay at that place further up the road or better yet, stay in town.
