About the property

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

Plumeria House is a recently renovated traditional Hawaiian style plantation home found in Tropical Waters, a vacation rental retreat featuring three homes in a gated community on Oahu's North Shore. This house has a beautiful garden view along with your own private beach access.

Tropical Waters is on Ke Iki Beach, which is between world famous Sunset Beach and Waimea Bay. Every evening, enjoy the most breathtaking and stunning sunsets. Have fun snorkeling, exploring tide pools at Shark’s Cove, surfing, windsurfing, sunbathing and whale watching right outside your door. Secluded from the hustle and bustle of the city, relax in a quiet setting where time slows down yet you’re only an hour away from the action in Waikiki and 45 minutes from the Honolulu International Airport.

Plumeria House offers a fully equipped kitchen, three bedrooms and two full baths. Interior decorated with the elegance of Hawaiiana, all homes have teak furnishings, banana leaf woven chairs and plantation style ceiling fans.

And when you need a break in the day, you’ll be pleased by how convenient our centralized location is. Only three minutes away, stop in at Foodland market for groceries and island delicacies such as sushi, mangoes and papayas. Foodland also has all beach essentials along with DVD rentals, daily local newspaper and snacks. Grab a steaming mocha or an icy cold latte from Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf next door. If you’re looking to dine out or do some shopping, Haleiwa Town is just five miles away. Land lovers will enjoy the nearby bike path; be able to hike along breathtaking ridges; or take horseback riding tours. The Turtle Bay Resort is 15 minutes away offering two golf courses and fine dining. Further down in Laie is the Polynesian Cultural Center where you can experience an authentic Hawaiian luau (feast). Whatever your interests are, Tropical Waters offers fun for the whole family!

Great location for a North Shore vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family made lifetime memories at this cottage just steps from the North Shore Ke Iki beach on Oahu. It's securely tucked behind two coded gates in a park-like setting shared by two other houses. Though not facing the beach, it takes literally seconds to walk down the steps and up the short walkway to the sand and ocean.

The villa's three bedrooms and two baths gave our family of 6 plenty of space, and the house is equipped with all creature comforts for a wonderful stay.

If you're looking for a great location, look no further. It's a two minute bike ride (bikes are provided!) to food trucks, a Foodland grocery store, and one of the island's best snorkeling spots (snorkeling equipment provided!), Shark's Cove. Depending on traffic, it's a 15 minute drive to Haleiwa or Turtle Bay and all the beaches including Sunset and Waimea Bay in between. Or if you just want to relax on the beach (beach chairs provided!), it's a one minute walk across the sand to the water's edge.

Bottom line: It's not fancy, but it's clean, comfortable, well maintained, and in a dynamite location for your North Shore vacation's home base. Without reservation, we'd stay there again.

This is a wonderful place to stay. Mrs. Mackey sent all info ahead of our trip so we were prepared when we arrived. We had no problems with the house. The house was as described. Very clean. The only thing that I would like to have was an ice maker in the refrigerator. It is just a very short walk to the beach. I loved the location. Foodland and food trucks were within walking distance. Foodland even has a deli if you don't want the food truck food. I felt secure at house. We had a wonderful time in Hawaii. Must go trip!!!

Nice place, needs a little work

We stayed in this cute bungalow from April 26 through May 1. From the photos shown on VRBO I was assuming we would have had the house with the lawn in the back, but was relegated to the house just in front of it, (the "C" unit) Everything seemed nice and tidy until one of our group found flying termites in her bed. They had a huge storage of lumber under the house, because it was on stilts. I called the rental agency and told them. she laughed and acted like this was normal for this island and would notify the owner. I also told her why they had termites in the living part of the house.

From the pictures, we did not realize the house was up on stilts which caused one of our party who uses a wheelchair part of the time to have to climb those stairs. We managed but were not please. The whole house looks to have been recently undated with new paint.

The surface of the place looked great as we entered, but soon found things like the old Jenn-Air stove top was a mess with a non working half and when I check out why, the grease had not been cleaned out of the collector for God knows how long.

Of the two place we rented on two different islands, this one was not our favorite.

Owner's Response: Hi James. I am very sorry you didn't have a great experience at our house. I will say that we do try very hard to keep the place clean and updated. As I mentioned to you on the phone when you called about the termites, we have all three homes treated once a month - inside, out and under! In this climate termites are attracted to the house lights at night and will get in if the door is left open. And thank you for pointing out the problems with the stove. We actually checked the grease trap and found very little there. We also checked each burner and everything was working fine. But we'll be sure to keep an eye on it for future guests! thanks again- c.
