Recent North Shore Oahu reviews

  • Awesome Staycation!!

    "We live on Oahu, and had friends getting married at Kualoa Ranch, so decided to make a long weekend of it, and spend 3 nights in the Blue Surf Bungalow. It was perfect!! Our 10 year old son got up every morning and paddled right out to surf, and we could watch from the deck. We did tons of SUPing, and took a couple kayak trips. It was so nice to only have to drive 10 minutes to the wedding and be able to drive 10 minutes back afterward and not have to drive all the way back home to the Eastside. Since we live here, we pretty much never left the property----lounged around in the hammock, went diving, surfing, SUPing and just got to relax. If you're looking for a quiet, peaceful place with an amazing view, and tons of water related things to do----this is the place. We will for sure be back!!"

  • Fantastic location for families!

    "This property has everything. Every day we watched the waves from the balcony and dined outside after grilling up a fabulous dinner of local fresh fish! The baby gates, umbrella stroller and playpens the owners provided made our stay even more ideal and stress free. The kids could run around freely and the patio is like a giant playpen. I especially loved resting in the comfy outdoor patio lounge chairs! The beds are comfy and you really feel well provided for with soft towels, and a nice squishy living room couch. A short 3 minute walk to one of the best beaches on the North Shore...and minutes from groceries, famous Ted's Bakery, Turtle Bay, and more beaches, snorkeling and surfing!! This place is a great price and a great location. You won't be disappointed!"

  • Great Location, Well Maintained, and Friendly Service

    "I stayed at the Waimea Cottage with my wife, baby, and parents-in-law and we had a great time. I'm originally from Honolulu (now living abroad) and have spent a lot of time on the North Shore so I was especially picky when choosing this place and in the end we were all very happy with the choice. Pros: - Overall a well-maintained and clean rental with nice little touches like soft bathroom towels, comfortable beds, and plenty of beach towels - Hearing the ocean hit the rocks from our bedrooms - Felt a little bigger than the pictures shown (the surrounding trees provide nice privacy but don't make it feel like the house is closed in, which is a fear I had before arriving) - Privacy (neighbors cannot see into the house) - Location (walking distance to great beaches and the best grocery store on the North Shore) - Fun beach cruiser bikes for use - Very friendly service overall made the booking and all interactions enjoyable - We didn't have any indoor "pests" during our stay which is pretty rare for a rental in Hawaii Cons (minor) - Sliding door between two main bedrooms could be an issue for some since there is no sound privacy - A info sheet for the property with some basic info and FAQs would have been useful (e.g. house line phone number, local grocery store opening hours, info on key attractions within walking distance) Lastly, there is a very friendly reliable property manager who was extremely quick to respond to our questions/requests. That is a huge benefit as it can be a major bummer when you are staying somewhere and there is nobody around to answer your questions or fix any minor issues that might pop up. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone."

One of the most magical of the Hawaiian islands is Oahu. There are trails, volcanoes, history and pristine beaches, making it a great destination for everyone. Getting around the island is easy, so your stay in North Shore won’t be far from some of best attractions. The tropical hub is known for its surf spots and boasts great swells for surfers of all skill levels thanks to the beautiful waves.

Must-see Attractions in North Shore

Surfing: There’s no better place to catch a wave than on the North Shore. This surf mecca attracts the best in the world. Even if you’re a beginner, the small and gentle waves can help you learn how to paddle out and ride your first board. Since North Shore’s beaches stretch for more than 7 miles, there’s a chance you’ll run into one of the world’s premier surfing competitions, like the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing held in November and December. 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. The memorial serves as a touching piece of history and is something that all visitors to Honolulu and the island should see before heading back home.

Beaches: You’ll find some of the world’s finest beaches and bays in the North Shore. There are crystal-clear waters, white-sand beaches and romantic sunsets year-round.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re looking for that memorable t-shirt or European clothing, it’s all here in Oahu. You’ll even find top-notch designers such as Louis Vuitton, Chanel and Tiffany’s on Waikiki’s Kalakaua Avenue. For a North Shore shopping experience, venture to Haleiwa for some real treasures.
