Space 2,400 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 6 nights


About the property

Estate, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Share the romance and beauty of the North Shore with your entire family!

Swing open the gate to our Sandy Beach, sink your toes into the white sand and say “Aloha” to the turtles who come to our beach each afternoon, or meet the local fishermen who cast their rods and talk story as the sun gently paints the sky a million shades of pink and orange as it slowly sinks into the ocean--another day in paradise ends with the ever present ebb and flow of the tide.

This quiet, secluded, gated BEACH FRONT estate is ON THE WATER and perfect for intimate family vacations, family reunions and small private weddings.

Completely removed from the congested North Shore traffic, living is easy on this quarter acer lot with 90 feet of ocean front and plenty of water activities including: kayaking, surfing, standup paddling, snorkeling, swimming and stand castle construction. When the conditions are right the local fishermen show up--and are happy to talk story. If you are seeking a true Hawaiian experience, then this is the spot!

The property was named Hale Hono (Home of Turtle) because the Hawaiian green sea turtles come just about every day, and sometimes nap on the beach. Remember they are an endangered species--please keep a 10’ distance when taking photographs.

The tranquil sound of waves and trades can be heard from every room and will lull you into a restful night’s sleep in your true Hawai’i oasis. Life doesn’t get much better. Please read our unsolicited Guest Comments and see for yourself. Our guests never want to leave this property as guest comfort is our #1 focus. Let us know what we can do to help make your dreams come true.

Other Amenities: Completely remodeled in casual elegance with high end materials, furnishings and art. This property offers upgraded appliances: Wolf Gas Stove SubZero, Fisher & Paykel. Also included: FREE Wi-Fi & DISH Satellite plus DISH Hopper DVRs and 6 Samsung HD LED TVs. There is also a gas BBQ.

Note from owner Pat: Oceanside mossrock pool w/deep blue ceramic tile was recently heated (passive solar system ). This is a saline system so the water is very soft and luxurious and completely void of harsh swimming pool chemicals. You will love the sunsets from the back yard and the pool, along with the feel of the water after a day of exploring the North Shore.

About Pat

Aloha All, I am a retired Intel International IT Program Manager. I have lived in the islands since 1988. I have always loved the ocean and feel there is no better place on earth than the North Shore.

Pat purchased this house in 2004

Why Pat chose Waialua

I split my time between my homes at Diamond Head and the North Shore. The North Shore is my 'country' home. I wanted to a place that was tranquil, private and secluded with lots of natural beauty and sea life. Because I am not there all the time, I thought it would be nice to offer my slice of paradise with those who hear the call of the ocean.

What makes this house unique

Ocean front, heated saline pool, Hot Springs Spa, secluded, tranquil, roomy, fully renovated, high end, tiff lawn, turtles, North Shore without the horrible traffic hassles, Haliewa is 10 minutes away for dining if you don't want to cook or BBQ.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Waking up and hearing the ocean is something we can't do at home in Chicago or San Francisco. Your home is perfectly appointed and I cannot think of a better way to spend a holiday. Thanks for sharing this amazing property with us----We look forward to a return visit soon!

A Warm Mahalo,

Mark & Aaron and Michael with Brian & Tyler

Truly a paradise! One of the best on the island!

  • 5 of 5

When we decided to take our two older kids (15 and 20) to Oahu for a bucket list trip, I spent a lot of time pouring over the rental options at VRBO and AirBnB. After our initial place fell through on AirBnB (they sold their place and gave us only a little over a month's notice to find a new place! Beware!) we discovered this gem, and after we stayed there we are SO THANKFUL that the other place fell through and we stayed here! It was far superior to the originally booked place and the other places we had considered. 1) The location was so much better. Instead of being on a high traffic road, this house is located in Waialua which is a few minutes from Haleʻiwa, on the North Shore, so it was a very quiet residential area with direct access to the beach, no crossing a busy highway to get there! But it's also nearby grocery stores and restaurants, so it was really convenient as a home base. 2) It boasts a hot tub and pool, which was great in the early mornings and at the end of the day after a day swimming at the beach or sight-seeing! 3) The balcony overlooking the beach is fantastic! Every day a fabulous sunrise and sunset to watch, not to mention the sounds and breeze from the ocean at all times! 4) The home was decorated beautifully and was outfitted with a great kitchen, comfortable beds and updated appliances. We really felt at home here. 5) And above all the host, Pat, was fantastic! I firmly believe that a good rental experience comes mainly from a great host. Pat communicated with us so well before our trip and during our stay. She answered all of our questions, gave us great suggestions for restaurants and sight-seeing and went out of her way to make sure our stay was a pleasant one. You can tell she puts a lot of energy into making sure the property is well cared for and maintained. Thanks, Pat! We hope to come back again!!

Ideal Hawaiian Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Just loved this beautiful beach house. Not only is the natural setting spectacular but the house was ideal for the 6 of us. The home is full of light and the trade winds keep the house comfortable. The bed in the master bedroom was amazing and I fell in love with all the beautiful artwork that is throughout the home - very tastefully decorated.

We hadn't been in Hawaii for years so really didn't know the area very well. Needless to say we were delighted with our decision. We found Waialua's location made any place on the island very assessable and we loved the neighbouring little town of Haleiwa. There were lots of restaurants close by if we decided not to cook but the house made cooking at home pleasant with high-end appliances and a barbecue.

With the ocean steps away from us and snorkelling gear and kayaks provided, we were able to see the sea turtles and tropical fish. The beach was quiet and peaceful with a few families or early morning fishing.

Thank you Pat and you can count on seeing us again.!

Peace, tranquility and luxury in one beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We all have an idyllic vision of what Hawaii is, or should be. And for those of us fortunate enough to travel there on business or vacation, our accommodations have the ability to either enhance or deter from that vision. This "home" enhances that vision, for many of us, in spades. Set amidst a quiet neighborhood, directly on the beach, there is very little you could go wanting for by staying here, except for crowds. If you crave hundreds or thousands of people you are likely to be quite disappointed. However, if you crave serenity with a 180 degree view of the Pacific, along with the ability to put your toes in the sand within roughly 50 paces, then you may well be "home".

This home is outfitted with a fabulous kitchen with high end appliances, accessible living areas, peaceful sleeping quarters that take advantage of the wonderful trade winds and the most drop dead outdoor shower on the planet! This is a perfect resting spot from which to plan your next day's adventure, to recover from the day's activities or simply sit and watch the ocean, pondering the aloha with which the owner has so graciously bestowed upon you since greeting you at the beginning of your stay. Suffice it to say that my stay was enhanced by the home and the owners. Enough so that i find myself wishing to plan my next Oahu/North Shore getaway and do so around the availability of this home.

Mahalo to the owners for their gracious hospitality, and for taking care of such a beautiful property that truly added to the mystique of our Hawaiian holiday. We shall return!

Great location on North Shore

  • 5 of 5

Owner Pat met us on site for a late night arrival. Extremely pleasant and informative at our briefing the first morning. She made us feel very welcome. The Home and location provided everything you could possibly want or need in a vacation rental. We traveled with another couple, there was plenty of room and great private access to the beach The outdoor shower was a pleasant surprise and definitely a must for future vacation. Would we return again. DEFINITELY YES

Amazing home!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with my friend for 7 days from NZ to celebrate her 50th birthday and couldn't have stayed at a better place! Pat is lovely with lots of great info and tips on the island. The property itself is immaculately maintained with all you could ever need we didn't want to leave!

Highlight for me was sitting out on the deck enjoying the trade winds while watching turtles feeding on the reef - pure magic!

Nearby Haliewa is a beautiful haven of places to explore for souvenirs and loved going for a meal at Haliewa Joe's after being recommended by Pat.

I will definitely be coming back to stay again that's for sure! If you're looking for a relaxing place to stay away from the craziness of Waikiki then this is it for sure.
