  • 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."

  • Beautiful house on the North Shore

    "We loved the Sunset Pad. We particularly like the enclosed lanai when it rained. We could be outside and enjoy the rain! Everyday we moved from the lanai at breakfast to the balcony for happy hour and walked to the beach in between. And we slept so well! It was a wonderful vacation!"

  • A perfect Getaway!

    "One of the best trips of my life I have to say.!! This Condo was immaculate and decorated with beautiful Surf Art (beautiful Balsa wood surfboards and classic paintings and pictures from the worlds best). The Condo itself was so cool. It has a beautiful pool 100 steps from the front door with a huge BBQ area and its a short walk to the beach which was perfect for my family. The snorkel beach at Turtle Bay is second to none! We surfed, golfed, hiked the beach, played in the pool, had BBQs and rode horses. The restaurants inside the Turtle Bay are some of the best on the Island too. The staff was friendly and we got to see some of the best surfers in the world there too! I can't wait to go back!"

  • Perfect Home away from home!

    "It was the perfect size & location for our family of 6. (kids ages 15, 17, 19 & 22) We especially loved walking to Sharks Cove to snorkel. The waves were super high but the cove is almost completely protected- a few waves made it over the rocks. It was a great central location for our variety of activities. We enjoyed making meals in the kitchen- after sunset on the lanai. We loved having lunch from the Seven Brothers food truck on the deck outside- no bugs!! I also appreciated the security provided- a rock fence around the house and a garage/carport to park our rental van. Thanks so much! It was a very memorable vacation and the house was the top of everyone's "do again" list."

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.
