Recent North Shore Oahu reviews

  • An ideal place!

    "There is not much more to say about this property than what has been highlighted by other guests. Our stay was memorable for many reasons, but much for the room, serenity and space offered by this home. Aris, with Alexis and John, have created a lovely and low-key place for families or couples to rest, unwind and enjoy the magical vibe of the North Shore. We traveled with our adult kids (21 & 19) who both had their own room (paid for the extra room downstairs...so well worth it!) and all of us commented how much privacy and space we all felt. The house was incredibly well-appointed with good quality linens, towels, housewares, appliances, outdoor grill, etc. (A couple of larger chefs knives would have been helpful...but, nothing to hold anyone back from preparing meals here). Also included were all the "beach" things that you might need including masks, snorkels, fins, body boards, beach chairs, mats, ice chests, etc. The 3 minute walk to the beach each morning with my coffee in-hand is the ritual I miss the most (or most look forward to on my return here!) as I now sit in a cold Seattle winter. Right at our figurative doorstep we had Sunset Beach, Back Yards and V-Land as the setting for the start of our day, the middle of our day and the end of our days watching EPIC sunsets. Don't miss Haleiwa Joe's for dinner (some of the best Ono I have eaten and a crab/avocado salad my wife and daughter enjoyed); Sharks Cove grill for super casual dinner/lunch al fresco; Ted's Bakery for good eggs breakfasts and even better pastry and pie (almond cinnamon Danish pastry...have one...or six... for me, please!); good, albeit somewhat pricey fruit can be had at a multi-vendor fruit stand two miles east toward Turtle Bay. If you want to prepare you own meals, Foodland has just about all that anyone needs. But, if you are there on a Thursday, visit the Farmers Market at Waimea Falls Park. Good produce, Molokai beef and fresh fish, along with other prepared foods and artisan works. In Haleiwa, visit VJs Butcher Block for other grassfed beef, lamb, game and fish...Kyle is a good guy to speak with if you love to talk meat! While it might be tempting, don't hunt down the roosters living next door. After that first night, you will come to love them, as you will the geckos all about :) Don't hesitate to rent this place...it is lovely and its owners are simply wonderful and very east to do business with."

  • Perfect spot on the north shore!

    "We planned a 8 day family vacation, my wife, 51/2 yr old son and I to the north shore. We have been to Oahu several times, but this was the first time we've stayed on the windward side of the island. What a beautiful, quiet and relaxing place this is. First off, Darcelle the care taker is awesome. She was very easy to work with and was very accommodating. She greeted us on arrival and made sure we were in and comfortable and basically left us alone the rest of the time. The house is on the tip of a point and provides total privacy. Although there is no beach right in front of the home, probably the greatest beach I've been to is a mere 2 min walk away. You're also a 2 min drive away from Pounders Beach, a great spot for boogie boarding (which the house has plenty of to borrow). Having A washer and dryer was convenient to allow minimal packing. You are close to the grocery store and some great dining spots (Papa Ole rocks...try their MocoLoco). However, if you are a foodie, this may not be the part of the island for you, the restaurant selection is limited and mostly consists of shrimp trucks and beach food. You have to go to Turtle Bay or all the way to Haliewa to get more upscale grub. What really makes this part of the island nice is the lack of tourists. Most people stay in Honolulu/Wikiki, Ko Olina or the Sunset Beach area, so you tend to be with a lot more locals here. Less traffic and emptier beaches. We will probably stay here again in the future. You are literally right on the water and that makes for peaceful sleeps and beautiful sunrises!"

  • Perfect North Shore Get Away

    "Oceanview Bungalow is the perfect spot for a quiet get awat on the North Shore. Judy and Mark are fabulous. Very freindly and accomodating. the property is very convienent to Waimea, Shark's Cove and Sunset Beach (great snorkelling, swimming, and surfing). Plus you don't need to worry about parking, becuase they have beach crusier bikes that you can use (about 3 miles is the longest ride on a shaded bike path). Nice room with everything you will need for your adventure (snorkelling gear, beach towels, body boards, BBQ grill, etc). Try Ted's Bakery for breakfast and the Elephant Truck Thai for dinner, you won't be disappointed. Highly recommend this fabulous rental, hipefully we will be back again."

One of the most magical of the Hawaiian islands is Oahu. There are trails, volcanoes, history and pristine beaches, making it a great destination for everyone. Getting around the island is easy, so your stay in North Shore won’t be far from some of best attractions. The tropical hub is known for its surf spots and boasts great swells for surfers of all skill levels thanks to the beautiful waves.

Must-see Attractions in North Shore

Surfing: There’s no better place to catch a wave than on the North Shore. This surf mecca attracts the best in the world. Even if you’re a beginner, the small and gentle waves can help you learn how to paddle out and ride your first board. Since North Shore’s beaches stretch for more than 7 miles, there’s a chance you’ll run into one of the world’s premier surfing competitions, like the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing held in November and December. If you just want to get a peak at how good these surfers are, then head to the beaches between November and February for the big waves, which sometimes rise to 30 feet or more.

USS Arizona Memorial: Visitors can immerse themselves in World War II and the attack at Pearl Harbor with a visit to the the USS Arizona Memorial. The sunken ship remains underneath the Pacific surface, and guests can travel through a bridge floating above the ship to get an up-close look of the effects the attack had, which eventually led to direct U.S. involvement in the war. The memorial serves as a touching piece of history and is something that all visitors to Honolulu and the island should see before heading back home.

Beaches: You’ll find some of the world’s finest beaches and bays in the North Shore. There are crystal-clear waters, white-sand beaches and romantic sunsets year-round. No matter where you go, you’re guaranteed to get the perfect mixture of fun and sun. Some of the beaches on North Shore include Mokuleia Beach, Makaleha Beach, Leftovers Beach, Waimea Bay Beach, Sunset Beach, Waiale’e Beach, Kawela Bay Beach and Sunset Point Beach.

This isn’t the place to be afraid to try something new, because everything is so delicious. Many restaurants also offer tastings and samplings, so you can find an item you like before ordering something exotic off the menu.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re looking for that memorable t-shirt or European clothing, it’s all here in Oahu. You’ll even find top-notch designers such as Louis Vuitton, Chanel and Tiffany’s on Waikiki’s Kalakaua Avenue. For a North Shore shopping experience, venture to Haleiwa for some real treasures. There are townies who flock to this hub so they can purchase wine and clothes at stores and continue on with their unhurried pace of life. It’s important to remember that many stores in Oahu and the North Shore are on island time, so they may not open until 10 a.m., while others will close for lunch or even shut their doors by 5 p.m.
