Recent North Shore Oahu reviews

  • Wonderful beach vacation home

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We really enjoyed our 2 week stay at this property. It was a beautiful and relaxing setting; the perfect family getaway. It's an amazing stretch of beach without any crowds. We enjoyed watching the surfers and even with good size waves we were able to swim right out front or just down the shore with our young kids. The pictures are very accurate for the home, if anything the property was bigger and more private feeling than we expected. It's got everything you need and was very comfortable. We were very satisfied with the property management. They made it very convenient with an app for accessing all property information along with a variety of information for the area (activities, restaurants, etc). They followed up to make sure everything was ok with our arrival and when we did have an issue with the washer they responded on a Sunday - bringing in a replacement. There is a lot to do close by in Haleiwa. We rented bikes from North Shore Bike Rentals and had fun riding around the area - into Haleiwa and up the north shore. They deliver and pick up, making it very easy. We look forward to coming back!"

  • Wonderful home on the beach

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this wonderful home on the beach. Nearly everything you could want or need is at the home. From snorkel gear, reef shoes, boogie boards, beach chairs, kitchen equipment, etc., it’s all there. The home was clean and the beds were comfortable. Robert, the property manager, is a great guy, very helpful and has a wealth of information on the area. The beach is not private, but public access points are several miles away each direction, so we only had a handful of other people pass by each day. There are many restaurants and shops in Haleiwa Town, about a 10 minute drive away. The family that owns the home next door had a gathering one Saturday (they don’t live there full time) that we found enjoyable. They were very nice people and we enjoyed chatting with them, watching them fish, and watching the teenagers play in the ocean. They were doing the same thing we were…..enjoying their beach home. We saw turtles in the ocean every day, and a few days one or two of them were sleeping on the beach right at the house. There’s a skydiving center several miles down the road, so we could sit on the beach watching the skydivers, surfers, and sailboarders in the distance. It was truly a great vacation."

  • Family stay on North Shore

    "Beautiful room, well equipted, excellent location right on the beach, safe wonderful community, great folks in the condo complex, turtle show everyday on the beach, great snorkeling from the condo, excellent farmers market for really fresh fruit and veggies and fish. Only 1 problem, the neighbor that checked us into the room was rather...cranky. Warned us not to slam doors, which can happen from the ocean breezes not from our rudeness. Also didnt like us cheering for our college football team on tv at 700 pm, seemed really cold and irritated at us at checkin which we did completely ontime and by the rules. Will definitely stay again, loved the condo Jerry!!!!"

  • Comfortable, clean and well located Bungalow.

    "We enjoyed our stay in this very clean and well appointed bungalow. Great location close to the ocean, bike path and main road but far enough to get away from the noise. Having access to bicycles and snorkeling gear at the house was wonderful. Judy and Mark were a pleasure to deal with and offered a wealth of information. We highly recommend this rental, it is very good value."

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.
