  • Big and Beautiful!

    "We had a group of 9 young adults. We rented the main house and the studio. There was so much space! We loved the open floor plan, high ceilings, and incredible view of the ocean. We didn't want to leave! Thank you so much Laura!"

  • An ideal venue for a wedding

    "After looking at several other large properties to host our wedding, we found the Plantation Estate. This was the perfect property to host our large group of extended family, friends, and kids. We stayed for 5 days, and had our wedding on the Saturday. The house and rooms easily accommodated our group of 21 people, and the two covered patio areas gave us plenty of outdoor space to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. The kids loved the pool, and the big lawn area gave them plenty of running-around space. The grounds are beautiful and lush, and provided the perfect wedding setting. We had such a wonderful day! Tania, the property manager, was very responsive and attended to all our needs. This property is perfect for those who aren't looking for the 5-star resort experience, but instead are seeking a quieter, informal, beach house stay. We are already talking about going back in the future for an anniversary celebration."

  • Vacation of our dreams!

    "Our group of 9 had been planning our trip to Oahu for over a year. Linda the caretaker was in contact with us the night prior to our arrival and gave us instructions on getting into the house. She made it very homey right from the start by having nice Hawaiian music playing and the lights and ceiling fans on in the house for our arrival. She checked in with us to make sure we had arrived and that we didn't need anything. We had read reviews about Honu Hale II where people stated that the pictures can't even show how wonderful it is and that was definitely true. When we walked in the front door, we could not even believe the view through the large picture windows at the back of the house that looked out onto the ocean. It was so amazing words can't even describe it! Our group of 9 had plenty of room and every amenity we needed was provided, from dish and laundry detergent, toilet paper, beach towels, plenty of dishes and silverware, and the list goes on and on. My husband is disabled and he had no problem getting around the house with and without his wheelchair. We rented 3 vehicles for the week and had plenty of room with 2 parked in the carport and 1 parked outside the security gate along side of the driveway. Linda and her family even made sure that they stopped by to put out the appropriate trash/recycle bin during the week so that we didn't have to remember to do that little chore. We had originally contemplated getting hotel rooms and staying in Waikiki or Honolulu, but we are so thankful that we took this opportunity to rent a beautiful home in a more relaxed atmosphere on the North Shore away from the chaos of the city. We enjoyed visiting the Sugar Mill several times during the week and the town of Haleiwa which was hopping with the professional surfers in town for the Triple Crown competition. We also stopped by the Dole Plantation a few times and had the pineapple whip ice cream. We had no problems driving to see the sites such as Pearl Harbor, the Swap Meet/Flea Market at Aloha Stadium, a luau at Paradise Cove, a helicopter tour, surfing lessons, kayaking, hiking Diamondhead, biking, horseback riding along the beach, swimming in the ocean, and watching the fireworks at Waikiki. As you can see, we made the most of our week in paradise and we always enjoyed coming home to relax in the beautiful, relaxing home that is Honu Hale II. Mahalo for sharing your home with us!"

  • Great North Shore Home

    "We chose this home for several reasons and we are soooo happy that we did! The location of the house is steps from the sandy beach and the bike path is just around the corner. The home is casual and relaxed and comfortable. The owner had foam surfboards and bicycles on site for our use. One day a bike chain was acting up and the owner replaced the bike with another bike that day (within an hour). The house was very comfortable for the 5 of us (2 parents and 3 teens) and had everything we would need for days at the beach and cooking in the home. You can rent a large variety of surfboards if needed, close by as well. A great bakery/deli called Ted's is close by too and has delicious food and we recommend getting a few meals there too (Yes meals!!.Ted's has more than great Chocolate Coconut Cream pies!!) The home owner was very informative and responsive to us and transactions were smooth. We weren't sure about 'staying way out on the North Shore' but visiting Waikiki or Kailua areas were each an easy drive of about 45minutes. Haleiwa is such a fun town close by with great beaches, shops, and restaurants. The property had plenty of parking and the property was enclosed with fencing for privacy. We felt very safe in this quiet neighborhood. The outdoor shower was handy after a day at Waimea Bay swimming and jumping off the big rock (a must do)!! or, snorkeling at Shark's Cove!! Overall we would love to stay here again"

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.
