Recent North Shore Oahu reviews

  • Staying here is its own unique experience

    "Our family of 10 (siblings, kids, grandpa) chose to stay here for what seems like a trivial reason now: It had its own pool, which hardly any other houses for rent on the North Shore offer, and we wanted one for our littlest kids. The pool was indeed fun to hang out at and offered a nice respite from the beach (waves were unusually rough for summer), but the house has way more special qualities than that. The lush green setting is beautiful, with the ocean below and mountains above for constant scenery gazing. The papaya and starfish fruit trees were used for almost every meal. Our kids loved seeing the horses and cows on the ranch below and the wild pigs that frequently crossed the yard. I took a hike to the Kaena Point just up the road and loved that. Two in our party went skydiving at nearby Dillingham Airfield and raved about the experience, and each noticed how the house stood out in the landscape. We went back and forth to Haleiwa for assorted meals, supplies and shaved ice and never felt like it was a hassle (5-10 minutes). Our favorite beach for swimming was Waimea Bay (15-20 mins away), and we also loved hiking to the waterfall and strolling the gardens at Waimea Valley. Some of us were concerned about the lack of air-conditioning, and indeed the house was like an oven upon arrival. But once we opened up all the windows it was comfortable even in August. Why wouldn't you want the windows all open in such a beautiful natural setting? The beds were all comfortable, and we had everything we needed while there. We hope to return and use the house again in the not too distant future, not just for the things we didn't get around to doing during our stay but also to simply enjoy the house itself again."

  • hawaii granny

    "The home was so beautiful. The pictures did not do it justice!! The information that Nancy and Ohana provided us with made dining out and planning activities so EASY!! The directions to get to the home were completely accurate. I can not wait to rent this home again....even if its a smaller group that goes. 9 people stayed in this home and we had the privacy that we needed but were able to gather outside or in the huge family room when we wanted to visit. I don't have one negative thing to say......it was awesome!! My grandsons loved the big yard and enjoyed hearing the roosters and seeing the birds and peacocks that would stroll by. The beach access is beautiful and I felt like I got my workout done just climbing the stairs.:) This rental feels like "home" from the moment you enter it....and the views from every room are just AMAZING!!"

  • Perfect Getaway

    "We just had a short time for vacation with our son and are not big resort people. This house was the perfect getaway. We have stayed in dozens of VRBO homes (sometimes leaving immediately) and the pictures don't lie. The home is beautiful and and peaceful and just 5 minutes from the beach. Remember the North Shore is country and there will be roosters and dogs and birds."

If you just want to get a peak at how good these surfers are, then head to the beaches between November and February for the big waves, which sometimes rise to 30 feet or more.

USS Arizona Memorial: Visitors can immerse themselves in World War II and the attack at Pearl Harbor with a visit to the the USS Arizona Memorial. The sunken ship remains underneath the Pacific surface, and guests can travel through a bridge floating above the ship to get an up-close look of the effects the attack had, which eventually led to direct U.S. involvement in the war.
