About the property

Immaculate 1 BR 1BA Private Guest Home at Sunset Beach, North Shore! Sleeps 2-3

Aloha and welcome to our Newly Remodeled in 2018 (New pics coming Soon!)Non-Smoking, WIFI, Air Conditioned private one bedroom cottage/guest home in the prestigious, highly coveted sunset beach community! Immaculate, meticulously maintained and managed with every detail. We have been in business for 14 years with a 25% return business and have well over 200 5 star reviews among our various marketing platforms!

The location is as good as it gets on the North Shore, hands down!!! Located in a private, secure, gated community in the very heart of the north shore surfing beach area between Waimea Bay & Pipeline whilst tucked away in a lush tropical neighborhood setting on the beach side of Kamehameha HWY. At the top of the driveway is a 2 mile bike path (2 bikes included) which parallels the ocean on one side and a breath taking, romantic beach less then a 2 minute walk on the other side of the home. Sharks Cove Marine Life Park (snorkeling/diving), Food Trucks, Coffee Bean & Tea and Foodland Grocery are all within a 10-15 minute walk. Spend your time relaxing instead of sitting in traffic trying to get around! All surf contests are a short walk or bike ride from the cottage.

Traditional Hawaii meets contemporary living in this professionally decorated, vacation retreat with art work from local surf photographer Dave Homcy, Al Furtado and Jocelyn Ching. Relax in a quiet air conditioning surrounded by elegant teak furnishings from Indonesia, cherry wood kitchen cabinets, vaulted ceilings, and a slate bathroom with vessel stone sink/waterfall faucet , Jacuzzi® bathtub and Washlet/Bidet. Enjoy a 4K 43" LCD SMART HDTV with High Def Cable TV/Movie channels , Blu-Ray DVD, & BOSE Home Theater System! Listen to your favorite music using Bluetooth from your Tablet, Ipod or Smartphone! Large windows throughout the cottage bring in natural light on the first floor. Each window is surrounded with exotic palms/ bamboo, tropical plants offering privacy from surrounding neighbors and a perfect setting for breakfast in the morning as the sun comes up. In 2018 we rebuilt the deck with stainless steel/Brazilian walnut railings for an elegant finish. A full size stainless steel BBQ with seating for 4 and mauka (mountain) views allows you to eat outside if you prefer and listen to the pounding surf during winter months. Also in 2018 we added a hand carved Indonesian King sized bed frame/new mattress and put in a Lava Rock Hot/Cold outdoor shower to knock off the sand after a hard day at the beach.

Why North shore rentals chose Haleiwa

Both of us are surfers and why we choose to live on the North Shore, however started the business because we enjoy meeting people from all over the world that love to travel and share similar interests.

Although we have a self check in system I try and greet the guests upon check in and offer some suggestions to make their first 24 hours a thoughtless one and make sure they have everything they need. Once settled in we are available if you need anything, however we give you full privacy to enjoy your vacation.

I'm very involved with the running of the property in between guests making sure it's in top shape and working order. I have 14 years experience in property management and over 20 years in hospitality. I try and get ahead of things before they happen to make sure your stay runs flawlessly, so you can just relax. :)

What makes this cottage unique

Frankly, it's a dream location and we are thankful to have had the option to buy the home after renting it for many years. Most days the beauty is simply surreal. Almost every morning starts with a rainbow over the ocean, surf the day away and end if with a beautiful sunset. Why live anywhere else....

This is the place

  • 5 of 5

Our main purpose was to relax and learn to surf. At first we were not very focused on the house, because we were not expecting to spend much time on it (only to sleep). But then we arrived to this cottage and fall in love... with her and with each other again :) The place is wonderfull, you have everything you need inside and outside... and you will stay in the famous "7 mile miracle" of surf. Use your bikes and explore all the beaches near the cottage, but if you don't want to exercise than just walk 2 minutes and relax on the beautifull beach a few meters away from the house. Lovely small town Hale'iwa is just 10 minutes drive but again if you don't want go that much far, you have it all just walking distance from the house: Foodland, Starbucks and some nice small restaurants. Last but not least, Anna and Aaron were great and gave us the tips we needed when we asked for it.

We hope to visit you again soon...

Perfect North Shore rental!

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the best places we have rented in 10 plus years of renting condos & villas all over Hawaii. The owners really made the trip for us. They were prompt, welcoming & professional and have this place in tip top shape. It was absolutely spotless. So clean & comfy (and I’m a neat freak). We never even had one bug, ant or mosquito in the house which is almost unheard of in this climate. The windows and screens all work. Rental is behind a locked gate you drive through and the owners live in the main house next door. We stayed 6 nights and just fell in love with the place. We could have easily stayed another week or two. It’s perfect for couples & has all the amenities necessary. Kitchen and bathrooms are fully stocked and beautiful. Bedroom is upstairs in a breezy loft, the bed is new and super comfy. We slept so well each night up there, felt like we were in a high end tree house. Gorgeous landscapes and foliage out each window. The lanai is new & perfect to enjoy a meal on & enjoy the trade winds. New gas grill. New washer/dryer and to top it off brand new beach cruisers which we really enjoyed riding on the bike path that goes by all the top beaches up the North Shore. The walk to the best beach was a couple mins & we spent most our time there. We enjoyed watching all the pro surfers & being walking distance to grocery store & food-trucks was a bonus. All the pictures are accurate and it’s a top notch rental tucked away from road & traffic.

Aaron and his wife are great hosts & we hope to return asap.

North Shore Gem

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Aaron's rental during a 6 week stay on the North Shore. The rental was clean, quiet and best part was how Aaron treated you. He made sure that every detail was taken care of - beach towels, chairs, coolers and bikes. Great location to Hale'iwa, Waimea and Turtle Bay. Food carts everywhere - plenty within walking distance. Teds bakery for great food and pastries, Foodland and a coffee shop. The rental is gated and beach access is only 2 doors away to a huge expanse of sand, ocean and great tide pools. Highly recommend this spot. Thanks Aaron!

Nice stay!

  • 4 of 5

Aaron was great to deal with. Always very quick to respond before arrival and very available as he lives next door. The house was very clean with modern furnishings and amenities. Our 13 yr old daughter slept comfortably on the extra deep couch in the main room. The washer and dryer and a/c were great perks. One small thing: if you're very tall, the loft's angled ceilings are a bit of a hazzard. We tall types hit our heads numerous times and tended to walk bent over while we were up there. Luckily, most of the time up there was spend sleeping. :)

Perfect landing for a chilled beach holiday

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic beach home feeling at this place hosted by Aaron & Anna.

Well thought out (night light for stairs), clean & organised with everything needed at our fingertips. From beach towels to DVDs, fans, & blankets. Clear communication and instructions provided.

Anna came around with an umbrella for us to use.. let me know re nearby yoga classes.. warm and lovely to feel welcomed.

Sunset beach is a few minutes walk away.. crystal clear water & incredible sand.. pristine & perfect for a relaxing time.

Location also a great base for driving around the island & exploring other beaches and areas.

Although the kitchen equipment is all there including a bbq on the balcony, we chose to walk to the food trucks located a few minutes away. Ample choice but the Thai was outstanding. Food land supermarket is also within walking distance so anything needed is really convenient.

Recommend staying here and would definitely come back. Enjoyed every moment. Mahalo🏝

Literally just steps away enjoy world class surfing, big wave tow surfing, diving, snorkeling, tide pools, whale watching, and awe-inspiring sunsets, basketball courts, tennis courts. Still want more?!! Just a short 15-20 minute drive along the coast will bring you to Turtle Bay Resort and Spa. Play a round of golf on one of two professional grade golf courses (home of the Senior PGA tournament) or spend a soothing afternoon at the spa and fine dining after. Have too many drinks? Just jump on "The Bus" back and it will drop you off within half a block of the cottage. Easy.
