  • 2015 Family Birthday

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The house was better than we imagined. There was plenty of room for all 17 of us. The back yard was perfect for the kids to play wiffle baseball and then go for a swim. The house was comfortable and had all of the amenities needed to cook with. The game room was ideal for the kids and adults. Would highly recommend."

  • Kamaaina's Dream!!

    "I grew up on Oahu and have been back several times. I've always stayed in Waikiki until this trip. Turtle Bay and the North Shore (Kahuku) location of this condo are very beautiful and quiet (except for the rooster who crowed in the mornings up the road, love it!). The Condo is to die for, and a little home away from home. So much so that I looked at other units in the complex for sale while we were there and we definitely didn't want to "move out" at the end of our vacation. Everything is provided for you, more than you would find in any hotel. With the ceiling fans on and the sliding doors in the living room and bedroom open you get a wonderful cool fresh air breeze throughout. We never turned on the air conditioner once. The sofa in the living room is so comfortable that my wife and I found it hard to get up and go to bed. I would doze off out there almost nightly LOL. My morning ritual was to take a cup of coffee into the "backyard" and visit with the snails and Geckos and birds that inhabit the lush greenery that surround the Lanai and the golf course. We try to visit "home" once a year and will be making this condo our place to stay from now on until the owner no longer has it available!! there are many restaurants and two supermarkets nearby in Laie and Pupukea that provide anything else you could need as well. Thank You for a wonderful, unforgettable vacation!! If you plan to spend a lot of time on the Leeward side of the island (i.e. Waikiki, Pearl Harbor) be prepared for about an hours absolutely delightful drive back and forth to the condo. I have always loved to drive along the coast on Oahu, so this was absolutely perfect for me!!"

  • What a House!

    "As wonderful as this house is, what really wowed us was the attention and care given to us by Michalene, the property manager! But im getting ahead of myself. We spent two weeks at this tropical paradise after spending time at two other homes...this was by far our favorite. It is so beautifully decorated and was so, so clean. You can tell right away that Michalene and the owner take excellent care of the property. They really care about your overall experience on the island. For example: we arrived to the house after a storm, only to find out the electricity in the area was out! Michalene was so very very worried about us, she spent an hour waiting on the phone with the electric company. We had candles and a flashlight, we were fine. I told her we once survived 3 1/2 days in northern Wisconsin without electricity because of a tornado... a few hours was no big deal! But she was still concerned for us, she continually checked on us. As it turned out the lights came back on before it got really dark! That personal attention is impressive! The pictures on the internet are very acurate...you will not be dissappointed at all. We are returning next year and have already decided to come back to this "home away from home"."

  • PERFECT SPOT!

    "My sister-in-law stayed in this unit for a week while visiting O'ahu from Denver. She came because my husband and I, who are fortunate enough to rent a condo at the Hale'iwa Surf long-term were getting married that week. (Altogether, we rented 4 condos for various family members to stay here.) This condo was perfect for my sister-in-law, starting with its location. It is one of the few ground-floor condos for rent here, and it is also in the building that is closer to the beach, which truly IS just steps away, over a very well-kept green lawn. Since my sister-in-law has hip and knee problems, she really appreciated not having any steps. She also loved being able to sit for hours on her lanai and gaze at the beautiful beach. It is also so nice to have some trees on the edge of the grass because they create shade on the beach in the mornings and on the grass in the afternoon -- there is always somewhere shady to place your beach chair if you want to leave the lanai. The unit comes well-equipped with chairs and a table on the lanai (as well as inside), and beach chairs and equipment in a big deck bin. (By the way, there is a coral reef that extends out quite far from the beach and protects the shore from the brunt of big waves that are common on the North Shore during the winter. You can swim right off the beach all year round. In the summer, it was so calm and so warm that the six children that were here, ages 5-11, were in and out of the water all the time. They loved the snorkeling just off the shore, too.) The interior of the unit is very pleasantly decorated with pretty colors and a tropical vibe. It is also very clean. All the kitchen necessities are supplied. It is very nice to have a full kitchen so it is easy to have meals right there if you don't want to venture into town (a short walk away). The bedroom was comfortable. She enjoyed having a ceiling fan in both the bedroom and living area. It worked so well for our family to have various units with this one on the ground floor. It was often the meeting place -- not only because it was on the ground floor right by the beach but because she was almost always sitting on the lanai. She loved the relaxation and hearing the waves during the night as well as the day. If you want a low-key, relaxed place with spectacular sunsets and snorkeling right outside your door, this is the place for you!"

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.
