Recent North Shore Oahu reviews

  • Perfect location

    "You can't find a better location or an nicer owner! We rented during the "winter" and enjoyed the great North Shore surf. Great places to eating within walking/biking distance. Can't wait to rent this home again!"

  • Beautiful North Shore Getaway

    "The Hale Luana was absolutely incredible. We stayed in the Sunset Studio and could not have been happier. The glass windows allowed us to wake up to an incredible view of the North Shore where we could see the waves rolling in and could watch the sunset at night. Everything we possibly needed was included from condiments to laundry supplies. Not to mention that to get to the house you must have a code to clear the security to gate so safety was never a concern. Louise was incredible to deal with and made sure everything went smoothly. We would absolutely recommend staying at the Hale Luana!"

  • Memories to last a lifetime

    "This beautiful home exceeded our expectations. The wow factor exceeds 5-star but it is the peacefulness and the way it just feels like home that will make you wanting to come back time and again. Our family had the vacation of a lifetime in Hawaii and we feel so blessed to have been able to share it in this beautiful home. We loved the location, saw whales and sea turtles daily from the lanais and truly enjoyed the aloha experience. The home is even lovelier in person than the pictures."

  • loved it here!

    "We loved staying at this condo. It provided everything that we needed. the view from the lania, which is where I drank my coffee every morning, even when it was raining was my favorite part. In the evenings the sun would set and we enjoyed those last rays from the lania. the first hole of the golf course was viewed from the lania and a sliver of the ocean. I don't golf, but I did enjoy the peaceful view. The bedroom has a large closet and a large dresser. since we were here for almost 2 weeks these came in handy. There is an air conditioner in both the bedroom and the living room, though we never used the one in the living room as we found the trade winds to cool it down enough. we also only used the air conditioner in the bedroom at night. I found the bed to be comfortable and had great sleeps after long days at the beach! The beach is only a short 5-10 minute walk and for that we loved the location. We utilized Turtle Bay Resort for things like horseback riding, entertainment and eating. The only thing that is not open to the public is the pools. We did walk the trails though. beautiful. we even seen an endangered Hawaiian Monk Seal! We ate at the condo for the majority of the meals and I found it to be well equipped with nice appliances and so on. There were a lot of kids here, but we didn't mind and there is a child with special needs above, and coming from a family were there is a special needs child, we felt happy for this child to be able to live in such an amazing and naturally therapeutic environment! I would definitely come back and would even consider buying a place in this complex! we loved it! Unless your standards are through the roof, you will not regret renting this place... its affordable, clean and in a great location!!! and most of all, management is great to work with! Aloha!"

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.
