  • Great little place

    "A two minute walk from the beautiful North Shore beaches, this is perfectly placed. Comfy bed and good little kitchen. We asked for the snorkeling equipment and they provided brand new gear which was really appreciated. Private and relaxed environment."

  • Loved the location

    "The rental really is a 60-90 second walk from the beach. The beach is never crowded with small enough waves a 3 yr old can enjoy the water. It was great for our family. We didn't want the hustle of being in a city and this was a nice local place with fun little local restaurants to discover. Several are a short walk from the house - I drove so I could enjoy the car AC :) The only downside is no Air Conditioning. This is not uncommon on islands and you do have a decent breeze from the trade winds. There are plenty of fans so you can cool down at night when it is time to sleep."

  • LEGENDARY!

    "We had a wonderful time staying at Wahi Pana for 10 days! There were 4 of us, 2 couples. and there was an ample amount of room. Washer and dryer were nice to have available. We used them almost daily to wash towels used at the beach. The home provides plenty of towels for bathing and beach. There was also boogie boards, snorkel gear, and beach toys for us to use. Cable was available at the home, it was nice at the end of long days to relax and watch TV. We rarely used the downstairs area. The home was located in an ideal location; the neighborhood and community were quiet. We loved being away from the hustle and bustle of Honolulu, but it was close enough to drive there when we wanted. We just grouped our activities for that side of the island into a day or two. There are great beaches, activities, and food trucks around the house also. We never wished we were closer to anything; it was very central to all of these things. We would love to come back every year and stay at the house every time! It was the whole package and definitely worthy of the Wahi Pana namesake. Definitely recommend North Shore Tacos right down the street, Kahuku Grill (10 minutes away), Seven Brothers (both the truck in the Chevron parking lot and the location by Foodland), Papa Ole's for pancakes (5 minutes away) and the shaved ice down in Haleiwa. There's a new "attraction" about 10 minutes away, Keana Farms Zipline, which was an awesome experience! The golf course in Kahuku was definitely a North Shore experience; highly recommended."

  • Beautiful Oahu Vacation

    "The condo was EXACTLY as described! The process of renting and checking into the unit was very easy, the owner provided GREAT driving and check in directions! View from the Lanai was INCREDIBLE with a beautiful sunset every night. The HP staff was helpful and pleasant. We had the opportunity to see turtles and whales at the beach while swimming. We especially enjoyed being able to walk out right onto the beach without any hassle of finding a parking spot!! One very nice excursion was walking to Ka'ena Point, a very nice walk (approx 2 miles one way), the scenery was gorgeous and we were lucky to see a Monk Seal sunning himself on the beach. It was a bit of a drive (easy) to Honolulu, but if you are looking for a quiet place to chill out, this is the unit for you!!!!"

Oahu Travel Tips

Oahu is known in Hawaiian as “the gathering place” for a reason. It’s the most developed of the isles and full of excitement, people to meet and experiences to be had.

In Oahu there’s as much to enjoy outdoors as there is indoors, so no matter the weather, you’re sure to have an amazing time. Days can be filled swimming in the sun-warmed waters offnear any number of beaches, trekking through a forest path to take in views of the mountains or trying the different flavors of the local eateries.

Oahu boasts bustling city life as well as laid-back rural living, so whether you’re looking for a piece of the action or hoping to slow down for a little while, Oahu delivers. In any case, you're sure to feel like you’re spending time in paradise with the amazing tropical climate and shimmering blue water as far as the eye can see.

Things to Do in Oahu

- Makapuu Point Light: If you’re fascinated by lighthouses, check out Makapuu Point Light, which has the largest lens of any lighthouse in the United States. In 1977, it was listed in the National Register is Historic Places. You can also trek along the Makapuu Point trail where you’ll see breathtaking views of Oahu’s southeastern shoreline. The lighthouse itself creates a picturesque scene with its red roof against the blue sea.

- Pearl Harbor: To witness the location of the infamous attack during World War II, visit Pearl Harbor. It’s a lagoon harbor off the coast of the island and the headquarters of the United States Pacific Fleet. In remembrance of December 7, 1941, the USS Arizona and the USS Missouri battleships have been memorialized. Climb aboard to experience what it was like on a ship during the second world war. There’s also a museum providing history and details about Pearl Harbor.

- Polynesian Cultural Center: Experience life like a local at the Polynesian Cultural Center, a living museum in Laie on the northern shore of Oahu. The center is spread over 42 acres where you can see a real luau and thrill over the annual World Fire Knife Dance competition, in which contestants show off their skills with blazing swords. You can also take a canoe ride, see a show and learn about different villages' cultures.

- Pali Lookout: Take the 5-mile drive northeast of downtown Honolulu to Pali Lookout where panoramic views of the Koolau cliffs and Windward coast greet you. The city slowly disappears and nature takes it place, transporting you to a tranquil and serene setting. Gaze around and enjoy the natural sights as stress slowly melts away with each breath of fresh air you take.

- Lanikai Beach: A trip to Oahu certainly means spending time on the beach, and Lanikai Beach is a perfect option. The half-mile shore is considered one of the best beaches in the world. During the weekdays the sand is relatively empty, so there will be plenty of space to spread out and enjoy the water views and warm sand.

- Honolulu Botanical Gardens: Enjoy more of Oahu’s natural beauty at the Honolulu Botanical Gardens, which is open all year long except for Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. Stroll through the different settings and appreciate native flowers and plants at the various green spaces: Foster Botanical Garden, Ho’omaluhia Botanical Garden, Koko Crater Botanical Garden, Lili’uokalani Botanical Garden and Wahiawa Botanical Garden.

Shopping and Dining on Oahu

- Alan Wong’s Restaurant: Enjoy a true taste of traditional Hawaiian cuisine at Alan Wong’s. The ethnic roots of Hawaii inspire his dishes that feature native flavors and locally grown produce and ingredients. From the meal options to the service and everything in between, you’ll experience life like a local.

- Waikiki Beach Walk: The Waikiki Beach Walk is the largest development in the area to date and has grown into a gathering place for both natives and visitors alike. Here you can experience a multitude of shops, restaurants and on more than 8 acres. There are more than 40 retailers in the open-air, two-level center as well as a variety of tasty eateries where you can refuel and enjoy a meal.

- Royal Hawaiian Center: The Royal Hawaiian Center provides you with 310,000 square feet of space to indulge in a little (or a lot!) of retail therapy. The center boasts more than 110 shops and restaurants in three four-tiered buildings. You’ll find everything from designer labels to adorable souvenirs to help you remember your trip forever. Other shops include craft, jewelry and surf shops.
