Mokuleia house description

"Honu Hale II" (Turtle House), North Shore, Oahu. Completely Remodeled January 2005.

Honu Hale II is an Upscale Hawaiian beach/oceanfront vacation home located on the North Shore of Oahu. Experience tropical paradise in upscale, luxury accommodations that delivers island living at its finest.

If you are looking to spend your Hawaiian vacation in a small picturesque town located in a secluded area only 35 minutes from Honolulu, this is the place for you. It has a variety of excellent restaurants and is great for all water sports including snorkeling, scuba diving, surfing, windsurfing, and kayaking. Other favorite activities include walking on the beach, fishing, skydiving, horseback riding, tennis, golf, biking, or hiking the nearby end of the North Shore Road.

Honu Hale II is named after the numerous sea turtles that play in our waters, where you can enjoy your dinner on the large backyard as the sunsets and the cool ocean breezes gently caress you. Is not this what a tropical paradise is supposed to be?

Honu Hale II is located on the ocean with unobstructed ocean views and an unbeatably quiet and private location.

Come stay where the people of Oahu stay to get away from the crowds. Mokuleia is on Oahu's North Shore, but is a secret to most.

Only 35 minutes from Honolulu, seven minutes from the town of Haleiwa, 15 minutes to Hawaii's famous Waimea Bay and Pipeline.

There Are No Hotels In Mokuleia, And We Have Empty White Sand Beaches For Miles. This is the Hawaii you dreamed of and thought you could only find on the outer islands. Great horseback riding and equestrian center down the street.

Enjoy the sunset every day in your backyard from your bubbling Jacuzzi. Sleeps ten, one king in Kamehameha master, one king in Duke's Jr. Master, one queen in the Queen Liliuokalani Retreat, two singles in the Aloha room, one daybed with trundle in Ohana (family) room.

                            We ventured to Hawai'i for a destination wedding and I cannot explain in words how perfect this home was for my family & I. The North Shore is a place like no other and this home stole our hearts & continues to live in our memories and dreams! We were welcomed to Honu Hale with hand picked Hawaiian flowers from the caretaker Linda and a small treat for our son. My husband to be & I enjoyed the master bedroom with the most comfortable bed, soft-to-your-toes carpet & the amazing sound and feel of the ocean outside of the sliding glass door. The master bathroom was perfect with gorgeous detail including a dolphin bathtub faucet and handles, amazing stone tile and a large enough space for my makeup/hair artist to work her magic! The kitchen was beautiful with everything we needed and more. My mom & I baked a cake for my son who enjoyed his 10th birthday in Honu Hale (lucky kid)! Large windows faced the ocean in the living room and the air conditioning unit and palm style ceiling fans kept the house at the perfect temperature. We had plenty of room in the house and could have enjoyed a larger group if necessary. My husband and son had a blast enjoying the abundance of colorful lizards in the yard, along with the swimming turtles in the ocean out back we would see a few times a day. Our neighbors saw whales but I wasn't lucky enough to catch a glimpse in the home's binoculars. My husband attempting kayaking (attempted LOL) and spent the majority of his time fishing right off of the backyard sea wall. We saw so many gorgeous fish that we released back into the beautiful Hawaiian waters. I loved waking up to the sound of the ocean and drinking my coffee in the lawn chair, staring out into the gorgeous shades of blue sea. My husband & dad couldn't get enough of the shave ice at the general store in Haleiwa and I fell in love with that town. All of us enjoyed the spa and we took a short off road trip in our jeep rental right down the road past the landing strip. The hospitality we received from Greg, Christine & Linda was abundant. We will never forget our stay during this amazing time in our lives and we can't WAIT to go back!

                            This house was clean, beautiful, quality and fully equipped with everything you need except food which we purchased some items at Walmart. The Ocean is in your backyard! The Caretaker was a phone call away and very helpful and friendly. We toured the entire Island and we all agreed the Northshore was the best area. Thank you for making our dream vacation a success.

                            What a stay truly amazing . Pictures don't show how beautiful this house is. It's fully equipped with everything you need. No need to bring towels there are plenty of great towels for the beach and showers. All you need is yourself. We did shop at Walmart for items and the was all. This is the second turtle mail box you come to. Very quiet at the house which was great for us. Location was perfect the northshore is the best area to visit. What can I say it was a perfect stay.

                            We just returned from a one week stay in Honu Hale II. We were a group of 10 celebrating the grandparents 50th wedding anniversary, ages ranging from 12-74. The home it self is beautiful and plenty of space for all. Even with 2 teenagers sleeping in "living room" there was enough privacy. The reasons for the 4 star rating is because one of the reasons we chose this property was because of the "beach in backyard". Well...not really...the ocean is in your backyard with a somewhat risky climb down to it depending on tide and current. If you want a swimmable beach you have to walk down street to it. This may seem minor to some but it was important to us. Also it is great that Kayaks are provided, however you need to be strong to launch in backyard...getting it in and out of water is tricky. Also we were told that one kayak had a hole and was taking on water and would be replaced. Yes there was definitely a hole and no it did not get replaced during our stay. We did try to repair the hole the best we could (Dad is a yachtsman) and it seemed to do the trick for us. Just frustrating.... The caretakers were friendly enough, but beware they may come do some yard work while you are there. On a positive note, our stay was amazing and if you are looking for something on the North Shore this is a great choice. It is right across from the skydiving port which the two 40+ moms did for the first time! Incredible!! I also recommend if you have young adventurers that have their drivers licenses rent a couple of mopeds. Although you have to rent them in Honolulu and the drive up is a bit long, they sure were a lot of fun once we got here. Also gives a little more freedom if you only have one car. We also recommend the Polynesian center for a bit of culture/luau and a great show. Mahalo and thanks for sharing your home with us.

                            This was the second time we've rented in Mokuleia. We had our family ranging in age from 22 to 86.The home was in every way perfect. We cooked fabulous meals daily in the gourmet kitchen, sat in the hot tub and watched the stars, and basically relaxed. There was a secluded beautiful beach right down the road where we spent many days and of course the cute town of Haleiwa is minutes away. We look forward to going back again next year!

                            It had been 20 years since we had visited Oahu and I thought we would never go back but after the kids wanting the experiences that only Oahu has to offer we decided to go again. Everyone agreed finding this home was a the best thing, There were six of us from age 81 to 22. The two master bedrooms were perfect as we traveled with our daughter and son in law as well as our son and a Grandparent. Lots of room, the best beds, beautiful kitchen. My husband and I had coffee every morning in the hot tub deciding what the days agenda might be, The boys always made breakfast in the home and usually packed a lunch then we headed out from there. It was great being so busy but having this sanctuary to come back home to. We used the kayaks provided, it was the first time the boys had tried kayaking and they snorkelled right out front with the biggest turtle they had ever seen! Linda was great, thanks for everything, This house and location definitely made our holiday more memorable! Loved it.

                            My brothers family and mine spent 7 nights at Hanu Hale II in September 2012. After having viewed the online photos and descriptions of the home for months in advance, I was still breathless and delighted when we opened the door and stepped inside. The kitchen is gorgeous and well equipped with Jenn Air appliances and beautiful granite. Each room has separately controlled Bose speakers, outdoors as well. The audio video equipment is top rate, and there are videos, games and other items provided for amusement. Every room in the home is tastefully decorated and feature beautiful, comfortable furnishings. The views from both master bedrooms are fabulous. We enjoyed the kayaks behind the house and of course the sky-divers that fly overhead. The location is remote, quite and beautiful. I'd prefer this location to those closer to town due to the reduced traffic and noise. Every aspect of this home is top notch. The owners did not skimp or cut corners. Because of the fine quality of furnishings and decor it's hard to believe the home is a rental. The owners have outdone themselves in terms of providing a beautiful, well equipped, functional home to enjoy at the waters edge. Our party of 7 had room to spare and we all look forward to return trips to Hanu Hale II. J Jensen-September 26, 2012

                            We stayed at Honu Hale II for two weeks celebrating my in-laws 50th wedding anniversary. It was fabulous. The view is incredible, swimming with the turtles, watching the parachuters. It is somewhat off the beaten path so it was quiet and relaxing. Easy drive into Honolulu. There were 10 of us and the house was great. Plenty of room for each of us. The kitchen is roomy, the living and dining rooms more than enough for our clan. The backyard is great and the morning and evening views are incredible. I am trying to figure out a way to get back there ASAP. I would stay there again and again. The town of Haleiwa is about 5 miles away and it was our favorite along with the North Shore beaches. The house was also priced right for us. You will not be disappointed.

                            What a wonderful piece of paradise! The house was the perfect place for our athletic family. We played hard then relaxed in the comfortable Honu Hale II house. The hot tub was divine after a long day of play. The room set up was beautiful with each room having the most comfortable beds. I loved waking up to the sound of the surf and being able to watch the water from bed, and from the living room and the hot tub. The views are incredible! The location was quiet with only local traffic, but behind the fence with electric gate we didn’t noticed. The fenced yard and landscaping that kept us private from the neighbors and made us feel secure. We appreciated the variety of toys provided, snorkel gear, boogie boards, beach toys, especially the kayaks AND aqua shoes!!(Bring some beach shoes-coral is sharp all over Oahu!) Being novice kayakers, we found it was easier to launch down at the beach access then wait for the right tides down the stairs. The beaches were nearly empty- especially near the end of the road. The air strip right down the road is where to sky dive!(Paradise Skydiving) The landing pattern is right down the beach and over the house- quite entertaining!! We shopped as we came up the island as recommended but were able to find what we needed in Haliewa. Hit the farmers markets too! The one bad thing about this house…..we had to leave!!!! I was a little nervous not being able to use credit card to pay but the owners were great and every thing went smoothly from deposit going in to security refund afterwards!

                            Wow – What a wonderful place you have here! We are 2 families – 9 people all together and we all thoroughly loved our time here at the Honu Hale II. We spent the first week at Ewa Beach and did all of our Honolulu touring while we were there. It was great but go-go-go! When we arrived here we really were hoping for a bit more relax, relax, relax and that is exactly what we found. Your home far exceeded our expectations – it is even more beautiful than the photo’s showed. We loved the décor, the cozy beds and all the “toys” you have here for the big kids and the little kids too! We felt so comfortable and “at home”! We love the North Shore and the small town feeling of Haleiwa. Sad to be leaving, but hope to be back. Thank you for sharing your home with us.
