Recent North Shore Oahu reviews

  • Don't think twice...

    "From the moment we stepped into the house and were welcomed by Troy and Janice with leis, we knew this was Oahu's North Shore at its best! The house was beautiful and the location right on the beach front was fabulous and House of the Rising Sun was indeed blessed with a direct view of the rising sun. It was spotlessly clean, linens and furnishings were perfect, fully equipment kitchen and even binoculars and beach equipment available to use. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending this property for your vacation - it was so hard to leave it behind. Lastly, before they left us to it, Janice spent as long as we needed to highlight tourist information and tips that really made a difference to our stay."

    "Perfect living space for the four of us right near the beach. We walked over to the ocean at sunrise and sunset, viewing whales, turtles, surfers, and more distant mountains and colorful parachuters. And an easy ten minute drive to all the North Shore beaches, catamaran whale watching right off the bow of the boat, and sunset dining. The full set of accommodations worked well, with kitchen for breakfast and coffee, easy high-speed internet for staying in touch with civilization, and TV (though didn't much of that in paradise!). Highly recommended!"

  • Wonderful property, awesome experience.

    "I loved staying here, sitting on the deck while watching/listening to the waves crash on the beach never got old day or night. The sunsets are unreal, the stars are bright, and the sunsets are incredible. Some friends and I needed a place to stay on the North Shore to attend a mutual friend's wedding in late October. Our desires were that the place sleep six adults, has direct access to the beach, is reasonably priced, and is relatively close to all amenities. This place fits all of those criteria and is also a great place. The house is up to date with new appliances including a 32" HDTV. There is wifi and it has reliably good speeds, I found that 10-15M down was typical. The kitchen has the usual appliances as well as a blender and a coffee maker. The place was very clean and there were plenty of beach towels. There's a laundry room in case you need to wash any clothes and said beach towels. There's a grocery store five minutes down the road and a gas station less than a block away. Swimming in the ocean in late October isn't recommended in front of the house, though the surf was good given that there was a competition happening 400 yards down the beach. Waimea is 10 minutes away by car and has great swimming. If there's any flaws, they have to do with cooking. The knives were very dull, I couldn't find one that would cut through the skin of a salmon filet, the grill is charcoal which can be difficult to light during the frequently windy conditions, and there was no food storage containers so stock up on glad wrap at the store. The deck, which I could happily spend the rest of my life on, is super slippery when wet so keep some footwear on the back deck (no footwear in the house). I'm now trying to figure out when I can get back to this gem on the North Shore."

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.
