Recent North Shore Oahu reviews

  • Great space for family accommodation

    "We stayed at this condo over Christmas/New Years. It is spacious, clean, and well kept. Kitchen has everything you need to be able to make meals for dinner on the lanai! Management provides great service. Our coffee maker wasn't working properly, and they had a new one delivered to the condo for us the next day. Great location for our family as we enjoy the slower pace of the North Shore. It's just a short walk to the ocean at Turtle Bay, or a short drive to Haleiwa (with its shops/restaurants). Five of us were very comfortable in this condo. Thanks!"

  • Best Family Vacation Ever!

    "I cannot begin to describe our week on the North Shore! What an amazing time my family had. The house was perfect for my husband and I plus our 4 grown children. It's a comfortable home with every convenience you could ever want or need. The location is amazing with lots of things to do that are within walking distance. All the rooms are well equipped with all the comforts of home including very comfortable beds. The view is so beautiful and it's just a short walk to the beach. We truly enjoyed the North Shore, it's a different world compared to hustle bustle of the other side of the island. People are friendly and there is amazing food, boutique shopping and hiking trails just a little drive from the home. Nick's tips on things to do, beaches to visit and restaurants to enjoy was spot on. We loved it and were so sad to leave. We will definitely be back. Thank you Nick for sharing your home with us!"

  • Great Place!

    "This house was everything promised and more. It was spacious, clean and had all the amenities of home. Great location, close to the beach and restaurants on the beautiful North Shore. Our family had a terrific time and there was plenty of room for all 9 of us. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. We would definitely recommend to all of our friends and family!"

  • Best Location for your Vacation!

    "We spent a week at this ultra private home. It was just as pictured with unbelievable views. When the early afternoon sun hits the water out front, it's a beautiful crystal blue/green and looks like paradise. The house is well-equipped for cooking, relaxing, watching TV/Movies (it's a Smart TV and you can access Amazon Prime and other subscription services on it) or just watching the waves. The private sandy beach is a great place to hang out and enjoy the sunrise or read or whatever you want to do. The beds are comfortable and there are plenty of towels! We appreciated Arish's quick response when the automatic door lock stopped working. We left the house and went back to get something and couldn't get back in. It wasn't a big deal and we just texted her about it and continued north for the day. It was all fixed when we got back that afternoon. The location couldn't be more beautiful or convenient - I'm glad we chose this side of the island for our visit - it was lush and green - just like Hawaii should feel. Stand on the deck off the master and turn around towards the mountains - you'll feel like you're in an episode of LOST with the mountain towering over the coconut trees just behind you. Be aware that this house doesn't have air conditioning - just a ceiling fan in the main living area and large stand fans for the bedrooms. I was miserably hot in the house and didn't feel much like cooking even though that was our plan. My family didn't feel it as much, but I discovered I am pretty heat+humidity intolerant. At night, we had to sleep with the windows all open and the ocean crashing against the rocks just under the bedroom windows is LOUD. We had to get some earplugs. When I shut the windows to leave on the last day, the sound was much more pleasant. A wall A/C unit in the bedroom would make a HUGE difference. As funny as it sounds, we went to bed every night saying, "Shut Up, Ocean!". The waves don't lap up to the rocks, they crash against them. Aside from that, it was a great place - loved the privacy and amenities. The bathroom set up is great for families - the double sinks are outside the shower/toilet area. The house feels very spacious. It's always nice to have room to spread out on a family vacation and this is truly the most beautiful part of Oahu."

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.
