Recent North Shore Oahu reviews
"This house was everything we could have asked for. Thanks to the owners and Bitsy for making this possible. View, beach, neighbors all spectacular. Many local places to eat but was really nice to have a grill to cook at home. No need to travel to other beaches the one in front of the house was perfect. One morning we went to Waimea Valley (waterfall) on the North Shore would recommend that little trip."Guest: CKL Date of Stay: January 2015 Review Submitted: January 20, 2015View listing
"This was our first time renting a condo or taking a trip of this kind. The condo is exactly as pictured and described. It was very clean and made us feel right at home. Because we had never done anything like this we were very hesitant. The owner called me on the phone and was very reassuring. She sent me additional information and was very easy to work with. She sent us additional information on sites to see, car rental information, websites to look at and much more. The beach outside the condo was never very busy. We snorkled there right off the beach and were the only ones in the water. It was awesome. The view is breathtaking from the lanai. It was very quite and peaceful and we had a very relaxing stay. We began planning our return before we had even left. I have already shared this information with two people that I work with because they are now planning a visit to Hawaii. I hope if you choose to rent this condo you will enjoy your stay as much as we did!"Guest: Nessa & Ben Date of Stay: July 2014 Review Submitted: July 17, 2014View listing
"Our family stayed here as a celebration to our son's graduation from high school. There was a slight blip with another home that almost derailed our vacation, But Marion offered her home and actually worked out better for our family. The home is located in a beautiful area of the north shore, about 3 minutes walking from one of the best beaches on Oahu. The only thing in abundance was the sea turtles and the amazing wildlife in the coral reefs. This beach is protected by a very wide coral reef which allows safety of worrying about larger marine life. To top it off, the owners are amazing, and we are already missing Ruby! (their golden retriever) Thank you so much Marion and we will be back next year!"Guest: The Waibel's Date of Stay: June 2014 Review Submitted: June 29, 2014View listing
"This house is more beautiful in person than the pictures reflect. We made this our home for one week recently for our Annual visit to see our son and we have nothing but positive feedback to share. The house is beautiful, spacious, clean, and well-equipped! The kitchen is lacking nothing...it's full of utensils, appliances, and plenty of dishes (even if you wait and don't do dishes immediately...it is vacation, after all!). :) We also found that working with this owner was such a pleasant experience. We had a prompt reply to questions, all correspondence was pleasant. The only thing that we felt was missing was a Bar BQ. We have found a home to return to.=) Unfortunately, I could only give five stars...darn that there wasn't more of an option! :) Thank you, Brent!"Guest: Brenda H.

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.
