  • Great House

    "This house was a great place for my family to stay for our 10th anniversary. I was a skeptical and hesitant renter as the owners do not accept credit cards but the rental process and the stay could not have been better. Brandy was excellent in communicating and answering any questions I had. Everyone (all 9 of us) loved the house! The location was great and the local recommendations for food and fun were perfect. The house was very clean and very roomy. The rooms and bathrooms were perfect size and there was enough space for everyone to get together or spread out to get some space. We were lucky enough to watch the whales and the amazing Hawaii sunsets from the lanai on the second floor. The kids loved the game room and they had a blast playing in the yard. I cant say enough about the I House. When we come back we will definitely be staying here again. Thanks for making this surprise for my wife the perfect family vacation. We will always have wonderful memories and lot of pics from the I house."

  • Best of VRBO's!

    "My husband and I have been here 5 days as we wanted to wrap up our Hawaii Island trip on Oahu but away from the hustle and bustle of Honolulu. This is the perfect place with everything you need. One of the best VRBO's we have stayed at and we have stayed at about 20 or so. Kitchen is large and stocked with every detail you might need -- even a crock pot! Very quiet here and great golf on the two courses here. You get a discount as a guest. Shark cove and turtle beach are 10 minutes down the road...quiet beaches or busy beaches are everywhere depending on your tastes. We stayed here in August and with the high speed large ceiling fans, we did not even need AC. Try it, you'll love it!"

  • Home Away From Home

    "This was our first time renting a condo or taking a trip of this kind. The condo is exactly as pictured and described. It was very clean and made us feel right at home. Because we had never done anything like this we were very hesitant. The owner called me on the phone and was very reassuring. She sent me additional information and was very easy to work with. She sent us additional information on sites to see, car rental information, websites to look at and much more. The beach outside the condo was never very busy. We snorkled there right off the beach and were the only ones in the water. It was awesome. The view is breathtaking from the lanai. It was very quite and peaceful and we had a very relaxing stay. We began planning our return before we had even left. I have already shared this information with two people that I work with because they are now planning a visit to Hawaii. I hope if you choose to rent this condo you will enjoy your stay as much as we did!"

  • Perfect Location

    "Probably the best option for the North Shore experience for a couple. Right at the beach, steps from Pipeline and Sunset. Right at Rocky Point. Lucky those experiencing the Mecca of the world surfing. Second Best sunset we've ever seen right at the backyard!"

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.
