Best location on the North Shore! This 2 Bedroom/1 Bath home with large beachfront lanai is on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. It is a surfer's paradise--within walking distance of some of the best surf breaks in the world--Off the Wall, Pipeline, Pupukea, Gas Chambers, Rocky Rights, Rocky Lefts, Monster Mush, Kammieland, and Sunset Beach. During the summer the ocean is flat and GORGEOUS. Watch the whales, surfers, and amazing sunsets from the covered lanai. You might even see a monk seal basking in the sand.

The interior of the home is lovingly decorated and very comfortable. Granite countertops in the full kitchen. Tub/shower combo in the bath.

This house is fondly referred to as 'The Hangout House' to a group of close friends that have enjoyed the fabulous hospitality of the gracious owners over the years. Come vacation with us, and create wonderful memories for your family.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We travel to Hawaii every other year. We are definitely planning our return and actually have our dates picked out. We stay on a different part of the island each time, and have loved each home we have stayed in, but I think we have found our "spot". That home was PERFECT for George and I. We honestly had to tear ourselves away.

The owners of that home are very lucky people indeed.

Epic spot on the North Shore

  • 4 of 5

From the moment you walk into this little gem , you get the feeling that it is more a home than simply a house. Front deck that you can watch all the action of the surf breaks go down, with a screening of greenery adding a little seclusion. Steps to the beach and into the ocean. Inside the house is an eclectic mix of Hawaiiana and comfortable surrounds. Old school items and not much needed. Backing onto laneway and bike path it is well suited for hiring a couple of bikes to get yourself up and down the main surfing strip. great spot, and great stay,

Fantastic location! Well-equipped house!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in several houses in Hawaii and can attest that this location is superb. Right on the beach with easy access to a great beach and beautiful views from the house. The beach has some people on it but not many. For us that is the ideal mix. No crowds but not totally deserted. It is in a part of Oahu that is very casual and laid back. We were there in August so the surf was calm. There were lots of young kids in the water on their own even though it gets deep pretty quickly.

The town is nearby and it is very relaxed. The food trucks are great and their is a Foodland nearby.

The house is very well stocked. There was nothing we needed that wasn't there. Without AC it is hot in the middle of the afternoon but there is a lovely breeze and fans. that keep the house comfortable the rest of the day. For our tastes we would rather have that than AC.

The house itself is pretty basic but you don't rent a place like this for the house itself, or at least we don't.

Great location, great house - exactly what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just spent a week at the Hangout House and loved every minute! The location was perfect! The description was accurate, the house was clean, and it had all the necessary amenities for a vacation rental. My family especially enjoyed the lanai! I would highly recommend this house as a place to stay if you are looking for a peaceful, family friendly house on the beach.

Great "Aloha" House

  • 4 of 5

Our family of four just stayed at the Hangout House for a week. Great location and great little cottage with lots of Aloha. I was a little apprehensive about what to expect because of the lack of photos, however, it was really lovely, well laid out, and the l'anai was huge! The kitchen has just about anything you could possibly need to cook, there were lots of bath and beach towels, and an ample supply of beach stuff. The place cools down really fast thanks to all the windows and fans. It's not sitting directly on the Kam Hwy, so the traffic noise was minimal. It's also far enough north of Haleiwa that there is minimal traffic. The beach out front was big (lots of sand) and always uncrowded, however, the beach entry from the property could be precarious for elderly or very small children (impossible for disabled persons). We were pleased with this rental!
