Recent North Shore Oahu property reviews

  • LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION

    "The house was very clean but not fancy, no need to worry about any pretty (and breakable) deco items that little kids are attracted to. The view is GREAT, turtles are amazing, and nothing beats morning coffee on the deck watching the sun rise except maybe a relaxing drink at the end of the day watching the sun set while on the same balcony. The house is right on the shore line but rocky out front with interesting tide pools and always turtles relaxing in the sun 40 yards away. The sandy beach in the pic is an easy 3 minute walk down the road. The outdoor shower works well to keep the sandy beach out of the house; the kitchen has the minimum utensils/appliances, but we are not there to cook gourmet meals. The one issue we had with the house was dealt with to our satisfaction; the management company was prompt in responding and taking care of the issue. We would rent here again, who needs the traffic of Honolulu / Waikiki? We have that at home."

  • Loved the place!

    "Feet away from the beach, peaceful and silent location away from crowds. Loved having breakfast, lunch and dinner on the porch. Owner is really helpful and nice to deal with - will definitely go back!"

  • Best Beach Rental

    "I stayed here with some friends, and it was the BEST beach rental I've ever been to. We all surf, dive and fish, and it had the perfect set up. private beach out front, 3 different waves to surf, and perfect diving grounds. Great for families who want to get out of the city life and enjoy some country living. The caretaker is very friendly, theres peacocks and chickens that roam the property which was pretty cool. Neighbors are far away so you have privacy. Overall this beach house rental was great. I highly recommend this place for anyone. The rental fee is reasonable, it's the best deal I found and I searched for an entire month looking for a beach rental. I hope others enjoy this property as much as we did. Aloha."

  • Friendly Family Getaway

    "We stayed 6 nights at the property with our two young children (3.5 and 1.5), and were joined by my in-laws for the last half of our stay. The unit is spacious, clean, comfortable, and well-stocked. We appreciated having parking space for two vehicles, as well as an extra futon for my son to sleep on when the grandparents arrived. The house was kid-friendly except for the spiral stairs (which we made a strict 'no-no'; for a longer stay I would have rented a baby gate). We enjoyed the private lanai out back, as well as the tropical garden. Anna was a friendly and helpful hostess, helping me take care of laundry,suggesting activities in the area, and even letting the kids visit her pet rabbit. We LOVED the North Shore, and the house was well-situated to explore in different directions. Some highlights of the area that I'd recommend to future visitors: --Shark's Cove (at the bottom of the hill from the house) is a protected snorkeling spot --Waimea Beach and Waimea Valley (3 min away). Beautiful public beach across from the Waimea Valley botanical trail and waterfalls. You have to pay to access the trail, but we ended up spending 3 hours exploring there, so it was worth it. Check out the Farmer's Market on Thursdays for a taste of delicious local eateries, farm-fresh produce, and gifts. --Pipe Masters (early to mid-December). We happened to be there at the right time to catch the two final days of this Surf Championship and it was a great experience. Check the Vans Triple Crown website if you're planning a trip that time of year. My only negative recommendation is to SKIP the Polynesian Cultural Center luau--while it is hyped up as being 'authentic', the whole experience felt more profit-driven and staged than other luaus we've been to, and visitors were prodded to take a tram tour of the LDS temple between dinner and the night show--not worth the ticket price! Overall, we loved our experience at this house and highly recommend it for families looking to explore the North Shore!"

Surfing: There’s no better place to catch a wave than on the North Shore. This surf mecca attracts the best in the world. Even if you’re a beginner, the small and gentle waves can help you learn how to paddle out and ride your first board. Since North Shore’s beaches stretch for more than 7 miles, there’s a chance you’ll run into one of the world’s premier surfing competitions, like the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing held in November and December. 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. The memorial serves as a touching piece of history and is something that all visitors to Honolulu and the island should see before heading back home.
