  • A little piece of heaven

    "We stayed here for our 10th Anniversary and couldn't have picked a better location! We didn't want to stay in a cookie-cutter hotel and found this to be the perfect place to experience the quiet, local side of Oahu. With the ocean just 20 feet away, this beautiful condo is the perfect place for a peaceful/romantic/private escape. We saw sea turtles every day and loved how everyone in the community gathered on the sea wall every night to watch the sunset. We also really appreciated the fact that the condo was fully stocked, allowing us to pack light and still enjoy all the comforts of home. If you can manage to peel yourself away from the condo, Haleiwa is a short 7 minute drive to great restaurants, shopping, food trucks, etc. I could ramble on forever but you really just need to see this place in person to appreciate the true magic of it all. We truly enjoyed our stay and hope we can visit again!"

  • Great relaxing week.

    "Had a really nice stay in a place that suited us perfectly. The road is a bit noisy but it soon wasnt noticed too much, all was forgiven for the great Lanai complete with Gas Barbecue and steamers to relax on after a hard day at the beach or sightseeing. The location is superb with a lovely beach so close (had it to ourselves most of the week) and a great part of the island to stay in, far nicer than Waikiki. Supermarket and drug store are very close and reasonably priced. The stock of beach equipment in the rental is great , boogie boards chairs umbrellas and more if you needed it and while you cannot see the beach from the rental it is only 100 yards away."

  • Absolutely Amazing!

    "My family (which included 4 generations) and I stayed here on our 1st trip to Oahu. It was meant to be a 'Once in a Lifetime' vacation. We could not have picked a better house or location. We had 2 seniors 78+, 2 fifty something's, 4 in their 30's, a 24 year old, an 11 year and a 6 year old and each and everyone of them was in love the minute we got here! It was like walking into our home, but it was in Paradise! Amazing little treasures from the owners travels, and family pictures made it really feel warm and welcoming. You literally feel the love there. The kitchen is absolutely gorgeous and the views are amazing from pretty much every room in the house. The huge Lanai, and outdoor spaces are amazing as well. We spent every waking moment outside. My grandkids were up at the crack of dawn and on the beach before breakfast was served. We had to force them to come in to eat every meal. We had several events planned that we ended up cancelling because no one wanted to leave! We did make it to Waimanalo for Chief's Luau, and the drive was a bit long, but so beautiful. We cooked several meals. The guys went off shore fishing and brought back Mahi-Mahi and Tuna. My nephew made us a local dish, Tuna Poke that was to die for, and we had the best fish tacos from the Mahi-Mahi. When we didn't cook we grabbed take-out from several local places. Kahuku Grill had the best Hamburger I have ever eaten, and Giovanni's Shrimp Truck had excellent Garlic Butter shrimp, my kids liked the 'No Refunds' - Hot and Spicy. We also enjoyed Ted's Bakery - the Lilikoi Cheese Pie was everyones favorite, and their scones are really good as well. My husband actually picked up a couple of pies everyday that we were there! Annette the property manager is amazing. She was there to help us get settled in. She offered to do my shopping prior to us getting there, and I now wish I had taken her up on it. I ended up spending too much time in grocery stores!! When we were leaving the property, it became very clear that there was no way we could leave and never return. So, we have decided that we will be going back next year - the kids (ages 6-36) are thrilled and so am I!"

  • Perfect Location

    "Probably the best option for the North Shore experience for a couple. Right at the beach, steps from Pipeline and Sunset. Right at Rocky Point. Lucky those experiencing the Mecca of the world surfing. Second Best sunset we've ever seen right at the backyard!"

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.
