Overview

About the property

Cottage, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-2)

Nestled in a beautiful country neighborhood, Sunset Hale is an enchanting place to enjoy your vacation. Lush mountains rise above the acre that surrounds you. Farm animals add to the rural landscape. In this beautifully rustic setting it's hard to imagine that the world's most beautiful and pristine beaches are, literally, just down the road. WORLD-RENOWNED SUNSET BEACH IS A THREE MINUTE WALK. And more than 20 other world premier surfing spots are just minutes away, including Banzai Pipeline and Waimea Bay. Spectacular and magnificent beaches abound on the North Shore . . . all awaiting your exploration.

Our cottage was lovingly built in 2008. This stand alone bungalow was designed for island living with an open floor plan and high beamed ceiling. A large central skylight allows you to watch the stars at night while lying in the comfort of your California King sized bed. Smooth and cool lava rock covers the floors. Stunning 'island style' furnishings help you to know you have arrived in Hawaii. One of our local artists has graced our hale with exquisite polynesian style carvings. Furniture is either handcrafted or imported from Southeast Asia.

After a day in the sun you can rinse off in one of our two rain showers: Our INDOOR marble & lava oversized walk in shower, or our large, private OUTDOOR shower. Evenings can be spent lounging on our covered lanai, barbecuing and dining alfresco or relaxing inside with our 46 inch flat screen TV. If you desire a more active nightlife, Haleiwa town offers restaurants, bars and entertainment.

Fabulous eating options abound on the North Shore: A scenic 15 minute drive in either direction offers a sumptuous variety of local, international or resort cuisine. Locally grown fruit and vegetable stands are just down the road. Ted's Bakery is just around the corner (Chocolate Haupia Pies!). We also have a delightful grocery store, Foodland (complete with Starbucks), which is just 10 minutes away.

The tree-lined bike and walking path across the street makes the Saturday's Farmers Market a fun and easy walk or ride. Luscious tropical fruits, flowers and local artwork are plentiful. Historic Haleiwa town, an old whaling village, has become a shopper's paradise and restaurant-lovers delight. Yet it still maintains it's old town charm.

Every conceivable water activity is easily available to you here: Surfing, Sunbathing, Diving, Snorkeling, Tide Pools, Whale Watching, Fishing, Jet Skiing and more. Lessons are available for anyone with a desire to learn.

In addition to exploring our magnificent beaches, there are countless activities for the energetic visitor. There are fabulous hiking trails including the trail to Waimea Falls. Other must-sees for the active visitor are Waimea Botanical Gardens, Polynesian Cultural Center, Haleiwa Town, Turtle Bay Resort with it's Arnold Palmer designed golf course, ocean view spa and horseback riding.

The winter months bring added excitement when the waves swell to huge proportions and pro surfers from all over the world assemble to compete in the Triple Crown of Surfing. This is a fabulous spectator sport not to be missed if you are fortunate enough to visit during this time. You can always find sheltered beaches and smaller waves to enjoy the water if the huge ones 'aren't your thing'.

About The Owner

Aloha and welcome to the North Shore!

The Kennedy Family

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2005

Why The Owner chose North Shore Oahu

Our family loves the North Shore of Oahu! It is what Hawaii is all about . . . a magnificent tropical destination where you can immerse yourself in a warm culture, while experiencing a wide variety of island activities.

Our family has lived on the islands of Hawaii for over 20 years. We love the uniqueness of each island, but we are especially fond of Oahu's North Shore. Here we experience an older 'laid back' vibe that is reminiscent of 'Old Hawaii.' Because we are a family of surfers we feel fortunate to live on these beaches that are the 'best in the world.'

The North Shore offers so much to visitors and locals alike and we are delighted to share our Hale with you. Our manager, Alia Kennedy, is a fourth generation born island girl (woman). She will be happy to answer any questions or give you tips from her knowledge and experience of the North Shore as well as the whole island of Oahu.

LOVED and would recommend to anyone!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a weekend getaway at the beginning of July and couldn't have loved it more! This place was adorable and had everything we needed! It was an extremely short walk to Sunset beach and a perfect relaxing place to call home in the evening. We enjoyed laying in the hammock as well!

On the way back to the airport, my husband realized he left his credit cards in one of the drawers and called to let them know. They immediately put them in the mail and sent them back to us. We couldn't have asked for a nicer, relaxing, quiet getaway!! It was perfect! :)

We will certainly be staying here when we come back!

  • 5 of 5

Sunset Hale is perfect and perfectly located! Everything that is north shore is so close, and we actually looked forward to coming back each day (not something I usually say about hotels). I highly recommend this place if you want a more genuine experience of Oahu!

Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed the stay at Sunset Hale. The quick walk to the beach was very nice, the outdoor shower was refreshing and the overall accommodations were outstanding. We definitely liked the more relaxed atmosphere of the North Shore and would recommend this house rental to anyone.

Pretty. Private. Mostly quiet.

  • 5 of 5

Loved the groovy design of the building, the outdoor shower and the goats. The neighbours boomed out music every once in a while but I suppose that's part of local culture. All good.
