About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 7)

This lovely home is on 1/2 acre beachfront at Malaekahana Bay on the North Shore of Oahu. This house is located on a white sandy bay with cool breezes and a peaceful atmosphere for a relaxing get away. On either side of the bay you can surf, and in front of the house you can fish , swim/boogie board, look for shells, sunbathe, or just relax. Perhaps you can spot a sea turtle or two, soak up the sun ,and then enjoy the beautiful sunsets. This beach is a treasure because it is rarely crowded or congested.

There are 3 separate bedrooms with 2 1/2 baths. There is one queen bed in each of the beachfront bedrooms, and one of these beachfront bedrooms also has a twin bed. There is a bunkbed with double on bottom and twin on top plus a separate twin bed in the 3rd bedroom.

We also have a daybed-type couch in the living room. There is a large grassy area where you can play football, frisbee, or BBQ. Wake up each morning to lovely sunrises and look for shells that may have washed up. Take a walk to either end of the bay and you will have walked about 2 miles.

Our 2016 improvements included all new beds and bedding. For 2017 we have installed new windows and sliding glass doors.

Drive to the famous surf spots on the north shore, visit Polynesian Cultural Center or Waimea Bay .There are 2 championship golf courses 5 minutes away designed by Arnold Palmer and Tom Fazio. This is a vacation spot for the whole family to enjoy!

The quaint town of Haleiwa, with it's restaurants, galleries, and shops, is a 30 minute drive to the west.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Waking up to the gentle waves every morning is awesome. The chickens are welcoming too that roam the yard. The house has everything that you need. Location was perfect to visit Waimea all the way down to Hanauma Bay.

Property location and proximity to beach is as expected, perfect! However it is a bit run down and could use some updating. Had a pleasant and quiet stay with cool ocean breeze at this time of year.

Exactly as pictured!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful week long stay at this beach house. The best way to explain it is that it's exactly as it looks in the photos! The bedrooms were spacious and with 3 teenage children, we felt like we all had our own space to go to after being out sightseeing each day. We enjoyed the common area for family puzzles (which are in the closet, along with a few games) and had a couple of relaxing meals at home. There's a nice assortment of snorkeling equipment for several people, boogie boards, a few life jackets and sand toys stored under the deck. Our favorite thing about this location was the wonderful ocean breeze that came in all 3 of the patio sliding doors! No, you do NOT need air conditioning, as there are plenty of fans and ocean breezes to keep you cool. It is a quiet location, yet just 2 minutes from a Foodland Grocery store and several stores. It takes a bit longer to get places in Hawaii than we expected due to the twisty roads, but when you have an ocean view on one side and gorgeous mountain views on the other, it goes by quickly! Bitsy was responsive when we had a question during our stay and clearly notified us about everything ahead of time. It's less than 10 minutes to Turtle Bay Resort, where we went for a nicer dinner one evening. The beach by the house is private and beautiful!! We enjoyed the monk seal that came up several days to sun herself. The waves on the beach are excellent for boogie boarding, but some other nearby beaches are better for snorkeling. We loved our stay in this relaxing, quiet beach house and would definitely stay there again!!

Stunning location, wonderful house!!

  • 5 of 5

We're just finishing up a month's stay in this incredible island paradise. The location is amazing, there is a 5 mile beach for walking and all water sports and it's mostly deserted. Monk seals and turtles often sighted. The famous Pipeline surfing areas are 30 min away and offer great spectator sports! Small family run restaurants nearby are fantastic and the lack of crowds is priceless. Huge covered deck with two person loungers, we lived out there! Three generations visited during our month and all found it captivating. The house is VERY comfortable with three nice bedrooms (2 ocean front!), three bathrooms and two tubs/showers. Plus large common area for games, visiting and eating. Perfect for family or couple groups. We will be back!

Beautiful, Private Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a weeks stay in paradise. My husband and I, along with our 16, 18, and 22 year old kids had more than enough room and we loved the privacy of both the front and back yards. Our favorite feature was the huge wrap around lanai! We ate all our meals overlooking the beautiful ocean. The beach was wonderfully private and we felt as if we had it to ourselves most times (even spotted a sea turtle on one walk). Bitsy was so helpful and a pleasure to work with. We would highly recommend this rental to anyone who is looking for a spacious, private getaway.
