Welcome to North Shore Affinity, our little piece of paradise on Oahu's legendary north shore. New construction, new high-end furnishings, a fantastic location, and an affordable price combine to make the Affinity studio an unparalleled home-away-from-home experience on the north shore. The epic Velzyland surf break and beautiful crescent-shaped sandy beach that surrounds it are just a 2-3 minute walk, famous Ted's Bakery is a five minute walk, and the postcard-worthy Sunset Beach is a 5 minute bike ride. (two bikes provided)

Here on Oahu, you're either in "town" or in "the country." Town is all of Honolulu/Waikiki, with its high rises, people on top of eachother, and gnarled bumper-to-bumper traffic. Our location is the opposite of that. The anti-Waikiki.
Simply being out of the town mess is great. But the north shore, specifically, is where it's at! Endless sand beaches, the world's best waves, a laidback surfer vibe, and anchored by the coolest little town around, Haleiwa.
A: In effect, yes it is. The studio does, however, sit atop the garage of an adjacent home (occupied by a wonderful family). The driveway / parking area is the lone shared or non-private space. Affinity guests receive a dedicated parking space that's within a few feet of the studio's entry stairs.
A: There are two more traditional options, and one perhaps less-than-traditional option. Most would likely choose to sleep on either the sofa or the twin sized air mattress. The less traditional choice (though guests have relayed to us on more than one occasion that it's been done) is the outdoor lounge set on the covered lanai. There's generally a great breeze out there, so we can see how it appeals to some!
A: We recognize the potential for guest's coming and going at "odd" times of the day and night. As a result, we have established all processes and procedures to make you 100% self-sufficient during your stay. It all starts with the reservation - once the deposit has been received, we email a confirmation that includes the property address, directions from the airport, parking instructions, the code to the lockbox for keys, and a phone number to call in the event of any problems. Once guests are settled in, everything inside is fairly straightforward. However, there is a house guide to assist you in the event that you have problems finding something or figuring out how to use something. As for check-out, once again, guests are completely self-sufficient - simply hang up the keys, lock the door, and you're off!

A: For security purposes, we only provide our address once a reservation has been made. That said, we're quite near Ted's Bakery, and so benchmarking off of that famous establishment in Google Maps will give you a good sense of our proximity to whatever it is you care to see.
A: It's really quite simple, but we'll lay it out here in excrutiating detail!
