Comfortable, Peaceful Oceanfront 2 Bedroom 2 bath Home On Large Garden Estate

Situated on Oahu’s iconic North Shore (aka the 7-mile miracle) this house is perfect for a relaxing oceanfront getaway, or family vacation.

With its unique location on Pohukoa Loa way, this house offers unrivaled access, while remains quiet and secluded. Whether you want to stay at the house every day and have the world-class surf break out your back door, or enjoy the surf from a distance and watch the professional surfers ride waves, or if you want simple, convenient access to the nearby beaches of Lani’s (Turtle Beach), or Chun’s Reef you are just steps away from both. The house is perfect for everyone, it is neatly secluded off the busy Kamehameha Hwy, and protected by a reef, this house will offer seclusion, relaxation all perfect for those looking for a safe, enjoyable experience, away from the crowds of the North Shore, and Oahu.

From the time you enter the property you feel like you're in Paradise with the beautiful landscaping, flowers, rock formations, and trees all leading to your personal view of the pacific ocean.

For the beach goer, there are several options of family-friendly, white-sand beaches a walk away with fun waves for all skill sets, including wonderful snorkeling, kayaking, boogie boarding, or just lounging in the sun.

For those wanting to surf, this house is an ideal location for beginners to professional level surfers. For the more experienced surfer, you can paddle out to Lani’s, Jocko’s, Hutlin's all from the backyard, these breaks, in the winter, offer some of the most challenging and beautiful waves in the world. Expect low crowds as you have your personal launching point right off the reef into the break. And for the beginner to intermediate surfers, you can surf at the iconic Chun’s Reef, which is only a 2-minute walk east of the house. Chun’s is a safe, fun, and easy wave to surf. Surf schools are parked there daily, so it is easy to join a lesson.

Unlike other ocean front homes, you have the water in front of the house completely to yourself. The pad of sand and the tide pools, are perfect for the kids or aspiring marine biologist; visitors frequently report sightings of Sea Turtles, Monk Seals, Octopus, Tropical Fish, Starfish, Crabs, and much more down within the rocks and tide pools of the beach. Plus the rocks prevent people from wandering into your area, along with keeping the sand safe for kids of all ages to play and parents to relax even in many of the winter months when the surf is too dangerous to be at any of the beaches on the North Shore.

While winter brings the famous Haleiwa surf community to life, summer is an ideal time to take advantage of the peaceful calm waters and incredible clarity, you can snorkel with the sea turtles, or kayak and stand up paddle along the iconic coastline with your family.

Summer (April to October) - Warmer temps, high 80s, mostly sunny, flat to low surf. Ideal for snorkeling, SCUBA, SUP (stand-up-paddleboarding), kayaking, sailing

Winter (November to March) - Cooler temps, high 70s, occasional showers, high surf*, Triple Crown Surfing competition. Ideal for Surfing, watching pro surfers, boogie boarding.

*Wave conditions are often very localized, so if the waves are too big on the beach, you can usually find calmer water at a more sheltered beach. Strong currents can make any beach unsafe at any time during the year, ask a lifeguard about ocean currents or look for warning flags and posted beach conditions.

The North Shore, has become a hub for unique and delicious food, art galleries, and local-home grown farmer’s markets. Whether you want quick, inexpensive delicious food from the many food trucks, or upscale restaurants like Jameson on the Sea, or Haleiwa Joe's, the north shore has something to offer everyone in the family. Personal Favorites in Haleiwa include: Beet Box Cafe, Elephant Thai Food, V-land Tacos, Surf and Salsa, and Scoop of Paradise.

                                                      All 4 of us loved our week .... would come back ANYTIME!

                                                      Awesome view, well designed home

                                                      cindy H.Reno

                                                      What a view, So relaxing to watch the waves. LOved the house and location.

                                                      Had a wonderfull time, everything was perfect.

                                                      Great Location, Awesome View, Great Value

                                                      Tom M.

                                                      We just got home yesterday from a week at the cottage. I work on Oahu occasionally & know my way around the island, but we were taking my Mother on her first Hawaii trip. We were removed from the hustle & bustle of Waikiki & could sit in our Lanai & watch & listen to the surf crashing into the tide pools any time we wanted, and there were plenty of surfers to watch most days. With the high winter surf, it was always a show. We were less than an hour's drive from any activities that we had, on any part of the island, a 5 minute walk from Turtle Beach (only saw one turtle, but it is winter), a 5 minute drive to Haleiwa or Pupukea (Foodland) for shopping . The cottage was perfectly sized for our party (3 adults), and had all the amenities that you'd need & was located on a side street & a rocky coast so there was not much tourist traffic on our street or coastline. The only downside is a lack of central air; there are room A/C units for the bedrooms, but it was unseasonably warm & the living areas got uncomfortable during mid-day some days. There are lots of fans though & if you are spending your afternoons in Hawaii sitting in the living room watching TV, you are missing the point of Hawaii. Also beware that traffic can back up on the highway there Friday, Saturday & Sunday in the late morning & early afternoons as everyone heads for the surf spots & sight seeing, but I knew that going in & if you plan your activities around this, it's not a problem. I shopped around a lot & I think this is a great value; you can't get ocean-front for this price point in a nice area.

                                                      Perfect Beach Cottage

                                                      Rocky D.

                                                      We arrived on a late flight to find the home in darkness but could hear the ocean waves! We crawled into the comfortable bed and awoke to a gorgeous sight just as shown in the pictures. We stayed four nights and were overall very happy with the home although it is on the dated side overall. The location was awesome for exploring the North shore area the nearby beaches were great too! Our favorite was Waimea Bay which is 3 kms away.

                                                      This was a perfect beach cottage for our group of 4 adults. I would stay here again!

                                                      Amazingly beautiful location. Charming beachside property. Clean and convenient to a gorgeous town

                                                      Barbara C.

                                                      Couldn't have asked for a more ideal property. So fortunate to have stayed with my family.
