  • 60thAnniversary .

    ""The Plantation Estate" was the ideal place to gather our family of 14 to celebrate our 60th Anniversary. Enough rooms for privacy and relaxing. A clean and inviting pool for refreshing cool-downs. The BBQ patio was transformed into an elegant dining area for our anniversary dinner. The large, breezy lanai was the perfect gathering place for family camaraderie. The friendly locals on the north shore of Oahu added to the Hawaiian experience. The manager, Tania,s joyful personality was part of this as she welcomed us with helpful suggestions. The close- by sandy beaches were perfect for enjoying many ocean sports. The hiking and other activities were enhanced by the breathtaking scenery. From all family reports an unforgettable vacation. Mahalo and Hang Loose!!!"

    "This house is trully a great rental vacation home. We had ten family members and found this home and location in a beautful setting, our family loved what the house offered and the ease to all our events which we had booked,the locals are amazing poeple. Being from Alberta Canada we didnt have much knowledge of the area other than what we could read but the locals trully made up for our lack of experince . To all folks if u want a relaxing, peaceful place to come back to after a day filled travel then this home offers the quest ,and I recommend the home to all travellers and a huge thank u goes out to Gerald who made my trip a memory one filled with smiles and memories to last a life time Mahalo my freind ."

    "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!"

  • Can't wait to get back to the North Shore!

    "What a great stay. This unit is on an almost secluded beach. We kept track and the most people we ever shared "our" beach with was 5. We saw a woman training a horse one morning, tons of little crabs, and a great place to swim. The building is older, I would even describe it as a bit run down but the unit is really, really nice. Even though the building is showing its age, there were people doing maintenance or cleaning outside every single day. The apartment has literally everything you need. The washer/dryer was awesome to dry our swimsuits everyday. There is a full kitchen with every possible cooking utensil you can think of. We happened to be there on a very, very hot week. It would have been nice to have central air but with the windows open and the fans going it was fine. We did hear some noise from the neighbors upstairs but it wasn't a big deal. There are two markets within a 3-6 minute walk from the unit. Be sure to check out Too Bald Guys, awesome. If you drive the other direction there is a grocery store not to far. Be sure to check out Papa Ole's. Emmanuel was great, you have to read the directions, he tells you absolutely everything you need to know. We got up every morning at 5AM to see the sun rise, amazing. I can't wait to return!"

One of the most magical of the Hawaiian islands is Oahu. There are trails, volcanoes, history and pristine beaches, making it a great destination for everyone. Getting around the island is easy, so your stay in North Shore won’t be far from some of best attractions. The tropical hub is known for its surf spots and boasts great swells for surfers of all skill levels thanks to the beautiful waves.

Must-see Attractions in 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.
