Recent North Shore Oahu reviews

  • Stunning home in gorgeous location!

    "After much research, and very little knowledge of the North Shore, we chose this home and hoped for the best. I can assure you, it was everything and more! The homeowner has excellent taste. It is tastefully designed and decorated, yet still exudes a laid back vibe. The entire back wall of the home disappears, exposing an amazing view and leaving you no choice but to chill... We learned after arriving that the location is the absolute best on the North Shore. Everyone we talked to in town was amazed when we shared that we were on Sunset beach. In fact, one day we drove to another beach to get surf lessons for the kids, and the instructor decided to take us to her favorite secret place. Turned out it was literally right in front of our house! We had 5 children with us, ranging from 4-12, and they literally cried when it was time to leave. There are very few places to go out to eat, which is part of the charm. Plan on bbqing and chilling, as that is the North Shore vibe. We'll definitely be back to this home!"

  • Simply wonderful!

    "This place is just beautiful! It was the perfect gathering place! The house is great and able to accommodate a large group of people comfortably with plenty of space to hang out or be alone. The full sized kitchen and dining area allowed us to feed and seat a bunch of adults and kids but no one wanted to sit inside - and for good reason - the best part is out back! I'm not sure I can accurately describe this beautiful 'beach in your backyard' well enough to do it justice! The yard is big and grassy with a tree and rope swing. There are plenty of chairs to spread around as well as 3 picnic tables. We also threw out a big picnic blanket. With all that there was still lots of grassy area left for the kids to run around and not knock into anyone. And the beach - Wow! 20 steps from the back door, able to be seen from bedrooms, living, kitchen and dining areas. It was empty save for our group (extremely rare in Hawaii), the water was warm and calm. Swimming, kayaking, snorkeling, paddle boarding all done in your backyard! Or just play in the sand and take in the expansive view. I wish I could post a picture of the gorgeous panoramic view with the full moon over the ocean flanked by pastel colored clouds as the sun was setting. Heck, we all live on the island and could not believe how great this place is, and can't wait to go back!"

  • Beautiful house on the North Shore

    "We loved the Sunset Pad. We particularly like the enclosed lanai when it rained. We could be outside and enjoy the rain! Everyday we moved from the lanai at breakfast to the balcony for happy hour and walked to the beach in between. And we slept so well! It was a wonderful vacation!"
