I've stayed at Nemo's numerous times for over a month each visit - mixed work with some vacation time. The house is clean, comfortable and exceeded any rental I've stayed at. Air conditioned (rare and very much appreciated when humid out), washer and dryer, right on the water. I was even here during a hurricane. Waves crashed in the backyard. Mike and Darcelle (property owners) are a pleasure to deal with. Immediate responses to calls or e-mailed questions. Area is quiet and walking distance to the market, drug store and good food - North Shore Taco's, Papa Ole's, Dominos Pizza. 3 minutes from Polynesian Cultural Center and 30 minutes to Sunset Beach. Great Location for enjoying the North Shore and staying away from Honolulu.
Friends that visit every year recommended Nemo's Nest. It's private, on the ocean but away from the main road that circles the island. When we arrived the owner greeted us and made us feel comfortable immediately. The interior of the house was spotless--photos do not do this place justice. We enjoyed the layout, the updated furnishings. Although we did not need this place comes with air conditioning through the house (not just a little window ac). The kitchen was great for preparing meals and there are a number of good grocery stores close by.
The backyard had an outdoor shower which made it convenient after a day at the beach.
Overall, we loved this place and the owners were great too.
We were lucky to get this home for the month of December. The owner was easy to work.
When we arrived at Nemo's Nest the house was spotless. The photos do not do this place justice. Everything we needed was provided including towels, beach towels, BBQ. A big bonus is the air con system through the house (it's hard to find full a/c systems in homes in Hawaii).
The yard, patio and outdoor shower were all pluses...but the best feature was being right on the ocean. There was a fishpond in the backyard...when the ocean was calm we went snorkeling and found lots of fish, trumpet fish, octopus...totally unreal.
Overall an amazing stay...and we will definitely be back!
First off, Darcelle was great to work with in setting up this rental. She communicated with us clearly and met us at the house.
The house is in a wonderful location. Your backyard butts up to the ocean. Spent many a day and evening sitting in a chair next to the sea wall soaking up the sun, sounds, and spray. There is a grocery store, drug store, places to eat, and a post office all within walking distance.
The house itself is great. The inside has tile or hardwood throughout and the appliances are all new and in good working order. The air conditioning works well during times when the doors and windows can't be open. The furniture makes you feel like you are in the islands. There is a TV but let's face it, do you really need it.
You are an hour from Honolulu, but only 25 minutes to the furtherest places that we wanted to see. Excellent access to all north shore beaches.
I would highly recommend this rental to anyone. I will be back.
