  • Paradise for our 30th Anniversary

    "We booked this in October and it was absolutely one of the very best vacations ever. Janet was very helpful and a delight to work with. The unit had everything we needed and Janet was available if we had questions. With my wife being disabled this unit was perfect for her. We were able to roll her wheelchair right in and she had access to everything. It was so relaxing to listen to the ocean putting you to sleep at night and not all the traffic at Waikiki. The amazing sunsets were postcard perfect. We went to Haleiwa Town several times for shopping and meals and is a great little town that has lots to offer. We needed a small shower chair and was able to find one at the Tru-Value in town. We will for sure make the return to this place when coming back. Aloha from the Pettay family, Mystic Iowa Jan 24th thru Jan 30th 2015."

  • Amazing property, perfect location

    "This property was perfect for four adults wanting to stay away from the busy Honolulu area. We loved the amazing yard and the cute dog, Ruby! It is close to the airfield (so my husband could skydive), close to Haleiwa (our favorite North Shore town) and close to the beach! It is a 5 minute walk to the beach from the property. We loved the quiet neighborhood as well! The owners were great to work with and were available if we had any questions or needed anything. The house was clean and well maintained with clean bedding and extra pillows. Loved that the kitchen was fully stocked so we could buy our own food. I also loved that we could use the beach towels and boogie boards during the duration of our stay. We loved spending our time in the North Shore, going to Waimea Bay, Waimea Valley and falls, going snorkeling and eating at the delicious bakery Waialua Bakery in Haleiwa (just down the street from Matsumoto's Shave Ice). I would definitely recommend this property to friends and family, or anyone that wants to stay in a quiet neighborhood, close to the beach in North Shore!"

  • Another great Bitsy rental!

    "This is the second time we've rented with Bitsy, because she's a pro and we know we're going to get a clean and well-maintained vacation spot. Size was perfect, the view was great, the bed was comfy, and when we were concerned we were going to have problems with a rowdy group of guys next door, Bitsy was helpful and contacted security as a proactive measure. Turns out nothing happened, but it was nice to know she had our back. We actually enjoyed this spot more than Punahele Hale (another of her rentals), and will definitely be back!"

North Shore Oahu Travel Tips

Oahu's North Shore has been attracting visitors for years due to its beautiful beaches and panoramic views. The area that makes up the North Shore is between Ka'ena Point and Kahuku Point and is located 28 miles from Waikiki.

The weather in Oahu is warm so be sure to pack your summer clothes no matter what season you're visiting. Since it'll be cool in the evenings, you may want to consider bringing along a sweater or light jacket. The average temperature in Oahu is between 75 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit when the summer air is warmer and drier. Although it cools down between December and March, the trade winds keep the temperatures comfortable throughout the year.

North Shore Attractions

The area is best known for its massive waves and surfers from all over the world flock there to test them out. If you want to find the best surfing spots on the North Shore, be sure to visit Waimea Bay and Sunset Beach. However, the most notable surfing spot is Ehukai Beach, also known as Banzai Pipeline. Annual surfing competitions are held at the North Shore including the Reef Hawaiian Pro, the O'Neill World Cup of Surfing and the Billabong Pipeline Masters. These three competitions make up the Triple Crown of Surfing. Even if you've never been surfing, there are several surf schools on the North Shore that can help you get acquainted with a long board.

If you visit Oahu's North Shore during the summer months, you can expect to see calm waters that are perfect for snorkeling, diving and swimming. The water is crystal clear and the beaches are among the most beautiful in the world, so spending a lot of time here during your trip is a must.

You'll want to check out Waimea Valley where there's a world class botanical garden at Waimea Falls. You can also visit ancient Hawaiian cultural sites and learn more about the islands. Waimea Valley offers a North Shore Eco Tour and the Hawaiian Hiking Company will take you off the beaten path on a privately guided hike through the Hawaiian rainforest. If you want to get a bird's eye view of the North Shore, take skydiving and glider rides at Dillingham Airfield.

Keana Point State Recreation Area features rare native plants and the opportunity to spot sunbathing seals. Although there is no shade or fresh water, the point is still a sight to see as there are picturesque views and the chance to see humpback whales spouting and breaching from November through March. Bringing along a camera to Keana Point State Recreation Area is a must due to the incredible views and wildlife.

Things to Do in North Shore

Haleiwa: Shopping and dining are just some of the many things you can enjoy in the town of Haleiwa. Women's clothing stores include Silver Moon Emporium, Island X Hawaii, Patagonia and Growing Keiki. There are also a number of surf shops including North Shore Boardriders Club, Tropical Rush and Strong Current where you can pick up your gear as you get ready for surfing lessons. If you want to grab a bite to eat in Haleiwa, be sure to stop by Opal Thai. This food truck is one of the best in town and offers a unique dining experience. You'll find what some may argue is the best shrimp on Oahu at Macky's Kahuku Sweet Shrimp Truck. Don't fight off the urge to sink your teeth into a delicious cupcake. Waialua Bakery offers delectable desserts as well as healthy sandwiches.

Mokuleia Beach Park: While in the North Shore, don't forget to check out Mokuleia Beach Park, the filming location for the popular television show "Lost." The park is located on a remote part of the island's northwest point and is 10 miles from the nearest store. This isolated area looks like a deserted island, and is surrounded by turquoise water and powder white sand. Expect to encounter sea turtles and other marine life. You can spend a whole day without seeing another individual at this picture-perfect secret find.

Puu O'Mahuka Heiau: This viewpoint and religious site offers panoramic views from a bluff located high over Waimea Bay. Puu O'Mahuka Heiau is on the National Register of Historic Places and was once the site of human sacrifices. The land of Puu O'Mahuka Heiau covers 2 acres and historians believe it may have been constructed as early as the 1600s. Today, there is a path that leads you to Heiau and the stone walls that outline it.
