Recent North Shore Oahu reviews

  • Wonderful beach house

    "We've probably stayed in fifteen beach houses in Hawaii, the Caribbean, California and Florida. Deborah's place stands out in two ways. 1) It is the homiest and best equipped and 2) Deborah is the most hospitable and attentive owner we've encountered. Add to these traits that the location is very private, the snorkeling is the best we found on the island and the views are spectacular and this home is a wonderful place for a holiday. The only thing that's not perfect is that there is traffic noise from the highway, but the sound of the waves covers most of it and here isn't much traffic at night. We highly very recommend his beach house. Peter and Johanna Cubra"

  • Awesome!!!

    "Me and my husband stayed here for 3 nights when we visited the north shore. Right from the get go, George and Kathy were so helpful and nice, George recommended places to eat, surf, snorkel and tour. The space was so clean and well taken care of, we loved the balcony to have our morning coffee on. They supply bikes, snorkel gear, boogie boards and beach chairs. It is in the perfect location, the beach is a 2 minute walk across the street, and very close to foodland, the coffee bean, and numerous food trucks. We spent a lot of time at sharks cove (5 min walk) and watched the sunset on sunset beach, which we drove to and it took 3 mins. Definitely will recommend this place, and will stay again when we visit!! mahalo george and kathy!!"

  • Don't think twice...

    "From the moment we stepped into the house and were welcomed by Troy and Janice with leis, we knew this was Oahu's North Shore at its best! The house was beautiful and the location right on the beach front was fabulous and House of the Rising Sun was indeed blessed with a direct view of the rising sun. It was spotlessly clean, linens and furnishings were perfect, fully equipment kitchen and even binoculars and beach equipment available to use. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending this property for your vacation - it was so hard to leave it behind. Lastly, before they left us to it, Janice spent as long as we needed to highlight tourist information and tips that really made a difference to our stay."

  • WOW! Sunset Hale is the best!

    "This place was amazing! My wife and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary in August and had several friends come and join us on the island. We had a total of 4 couples in the Sunset Hale home and it was big enough that everyone had enough privacy but was also set up so that we could all be comfortable in one space (deck, living room, kitchen...etc.) whenever necessary. The wrap around deck was great for entertaining and the view of the ocean was incredible! The home was very clean and exceeded our expectations even with all the pictures listed on vrbo. The property manager, Annastacia, was awesome in communicating both before and during our stay, and my deposit was refunded almost immediately after the end of our stay! The location is great....a brief walk to beautiful sunset beach on the North Shore! They even had 4 beach bikes in the garage for us to use. If you are unfamiliar with the North Shore, it is a stark contrast to the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. But there is no shortage of things to see and do. Within 5-10 minutes you have beach, waterfalls, Turtle Bay resort/golf, Polynesian Cultural Center and Haleiwa surf town! There were only two things that I would recommend. First, there was only one roll of toilet paper for each bathroom and that's all they supply. There is a grocery store less than 2 miles away so this wasn't that big of a deal but would have been nice to know ahead of time. Second, the driveway is long, uphill and narrow. My only suggestion would be to put some lighting along the driveway (even the cheap solar power photocell lights), as we found ourselves walking up and down at night frequently. In General, this place was overwhelmingly beautiful and ended up being just what we needed. We had our vow renewal ceremony on the beach right across the street from the house all of our guests, who stayed or stopped by the property were blown away! Thank you guys for being such an amazing part of our anniversary celebration! Mahalo!"

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.
