I arrived later in the evening after dark and left early morning so I can't provide an in depth review, but I'll share my experience. Though I didn't meet the host, Raven was fairly quick to respond to my questions and the Instant Book was convenient for last minute reservation. Clear directions were provided as to the location and campsite spots were well marked. (It would have been helpful to include the WiFi info/PW with that welcome information.) The host was available to answer questions via text, if needed, when I arrived.

When car camping, one can anticipate basically being in a rocky, dirt parking lot parked fairly close to others, depending on what site you're given. Don't plan on a car campsite with a picnic table and lots of room to put out chairs and whatnot (unless I missed that in the dark!). Spot #5 was under a mango tree and provided some bit of shelter from the pouring rain, though my feet definitely got dirty in the muddy puddles. (What can one expect when staying there the night before the general area had evacuations for flash flooding though? haha) There weren't a ton of bright lights which is good for sleeping, but pack a headlamp or flashlight to get around the side of the house to the shower, bathroom, and kitchen.

This small parking lot is tucked just off the main road of Haleiwa in the middle of some great local restaurants and shops. I was able to easily walk and pick up dinner at the food truck 50 feet away. For reference, Matsumoto Shave Ice was just up the street walking distance and the Banzai Pipeline was all of a 15 minute drive down the road. Great place to stay for surfers or use as a basecamp for those exploring the North Shore.

The outdoor bathroom was very clean and had ample room to change clothes (though no sink to wash hands, brush your teeth, etc. just hand sanitizer. Whether people actually did this or not, I did appreciate the sign that asked people to put the sanitizer on TP and wipe down the seat in between use). The hot outdoor shower was marvelous with a huge shower head and there were individual baskets for people at each tent/car site to put their shampoo/conditioner. It would have been nice to have a hook or spot to put down one's clothes that wouldn't get drenched by the awesome shower. (I put my clothes in a trash bag to keep dry.) I didn't utilize the kitchen but looked like a nice set up overall. I didn't see the tent sites out back, so can't provide comment there.

If you're looking for an affordable place on the North Shore where you can explore the area and beaches, have a nice hot shower, and easy access to what the area has to offer -- I'd recommend it. I was grateful to come across this site instead of staying at the nearby state campground where the gates were locked between 6:45p-7am. Though I had limited interaction with the other people onsite, I felt safe as a solo, female traveler and it was only a 45 minute drive to the airport. Wish I could have stayed longer, but it worked perfectly for me to have a place to sleep and take off to the airport in the morning.

Thanks for the great review Sara! We were happy to host you and I'm happy it all worked out for a convenient place to stay. We have many guests from other platforms but you're our first official "HipCamper" Yeah! Thank you for mentioning few things to help me with listing details. A couple things I wanted to let you know about was in regards to the sink and shower. There are hooks in the shower to hang your clothes. I'm thinking because you arrived late and it was dark that you just didn't see them. There isn't a sink in the restroom, however we have the large three bin sink right outside of it so people can use the sink to brush their teeth and someone else can use the restroom. It frees up the restroom having the sink separate from the toilet. :) We hope to have you stay longer next time so you can enjoy some fo the community areas such as the work-out station, lounging areas, hammocks, netted in "work from home" stations and have a camp fire with us.

We stayed in a camper van at this spot with original plans to move on after a few days and ended up extending our stay through the whole week! Great location, great accommodations, great people. Bathroom was well kept, outdoor shower has wonderful water pressure, power outlets available in the public tents, refrigerator available to keep your food/drink, the list goes on and on. Raven has created something wonderful here and i almost hesitated to post a review because i wanted to keep this place a secret! Will definitely be back again

The location is close to tons of north shore gems! It is close to wetlands so if you have issues with misquitos I would not reccommend. I barely left my camper van cuz it was so bad and still had over 40 bites! The people there are AMAZING. They have a communal fire and all seem to get along well.
