  • Beautilful and clean visit for our small family

    "We stayed here 3 nights with 4 adults and 2 younger ones aged 3 and 1. Everything was beautiful, clean and exactly as described. Regina was very helpful and friendly when she introduced the property. All amenities we needed were available and it was great being so close to the beach, especially with the kids as we had to run back and forth, a lot! Just keep in mind that this villa is attached to 3 others but there is no one above or below you. This villa is at the end so there is 1 shared wall but sound was never an issue. For some reason I thought it was a completely free standing villa. BBQ is also shared on a first come first serve basis so there was a small lineup for using it during dinner time. Pool is heated and very close by for the kids. Note that there are 2 playpens available, not technically a 'crib' for the babies. So for the moms who are picky about that sort of thing (like my wife) just keep that in mind. Our little one (1.5 years old) didn't seem to have any issue sleeping in it though as we padded it further with the other playpen mattress and a towel. The only other thing we found missing in the kitchen was oil and ketchup. I'm sure we could've called Regina or picked up some for ourselves but when you realize you're missing those things just as you're about to cook or eat it can be a bit annoying. These are obviously small issues to mention but overall the villa is clean, beautiful, convenient, comfortable and it definitely spoiled us. It almost felt like a luxurious 2nd home to us. Once we left for Waikiki for the next few days our first reaction after checking into a hotel was that we really missed living in the villa. We would absolutely would recommend this property to anyone."

  • Amazing studio, perfect location, ideal getaway!

    "My fiance and I stayed here for 5 days in August and absolutely loved it! We couldn't have asked for a more idyllic vacation rental! The location was perfect - just between Sunset Beach and Pipeline - and the studio was clean, spacious, beautifully decorated and had everything we needed! It even had a fully stocked kitchen so we could make our own meals if we didn't feel like going out. We had gorgeous views of the ocean with the spectacular Hawaiian sunsets! We would wake up each morning, make some Hawaiian coffee and a tropical fruit salad and walk about 20 feet to the beach to sit on the sand and enjoy the warm tropical breezes with our coffee. Then we'd end each day by falling asleep to the sound of waves crashing on the sand. It was absolutely serene! I couldn't recommend this place highly enough! We absolutely loved it!! Thanks for a wonderful stay!"

  • Big, beautiful house just steps from the beach

    "Just finished a girls week in Hawaii. We loved this house. Plenty of room for all 10 of us. Stocked with snorkel gear, beach towels and mats, and everything we could have needed in the kitchen. We loved that the beach was so close, and just a short walk down it there were really good body boarding waves and a little less coral, plus a small bathtub beach area for the baby. We saw a Hawaiian monk seal sunning himself right out on our beach one afternoon. The outdoor shower with the option for hot water was such a luxury. It gets a bit hot, but there are many fans, which made it more tolerable. Theres a Foodland and coffee shop 2 miles down the road across from sharks cove (a great place to snorkel) and a Thai food truck close by too. Parking was a bit tight for our minivan, but that seemed to be the case most places we tried to park the beast. With the threat of a hurricane and possible flight cancelation, we were offered to extend our stay, which gave us peace of mind. All in all I would totally stay here again."

    "Returned to this home 20yrs after our first visit, and it is still as breathtaking as it was 20yrs ago! The solitude, the view, the beach and surf... Wow! Swimming, SUP'ing, kayaking and even surfing with the turtles was fantastic and many many memories created with our young family."

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.
