Aloha & Welcome to our Ocean front Backyards Bungalow:) If you are looking for paradise look no more! This beachfront backyard bungalow is located on Sunset Beach in the heart of the world famous North Shore on a private sand beach that stretches miles in both directions. One of the most desirable beaches in the world, as seen on travel channel’s top ten beaches numerous times. The home is perfect for those looking for a relaxing, exciting, perfect vacation. Tucked back in a quiet neighborhood off the bike path. Whether you are looking to catch a wave, hang in the hammock with a book, snorkel/scuba dive the gorgeous reefs, grill out your fresh catch, bask in the sun, North Shore has whatever a perfect vacation entails to you! World class surf break “Backyards” directly in front of house with “Sunset” “Rocky Point” and “Pipeline” steps away! The beach in front of the house is absolutely breathtaking and hardly used as there is no public access to it close to the home. The water is crystal clear and the snorkeling is great.
The home will sleep 6 comfortably. It has 2 bedrooms. The master a queen bed with cable TV and the other bedroom with 2 twin beds and cable TV. Also a double pullout sleeper sofa in living area. We also have floor mattresses if needed. One full bath and one half bath, fully equipped kitchen, Living room has a new 51' flatscreen TV with a dvd player for movie nights. Has a covered deck/lanai with Gas BBQ and washer/dryer. Plenty of seating.
The North Shore is the quite part of Oahu but is only minutes from great food, shopping and fantastic sites. The house is less than 15 minutes from the historic town of Haleiwa, which is the main town on the north shore of Oahu. It has lots of restaurants, shopping, a marina (in case you would like to go deep sea fishing), and live entertainment nightly in some of the restaurants. About five miles away from the house in the other direction, are two championship golf courses, horseback riding, lots of amazing restaurants, and several bars. Ted’s Bakery is walking distance from the homes with some of the best food on this side of the island. There are always exciting surf competitions to watch during the winter months such as the Triple Crown(Pipeline Masters which is the super bowl of surfing) and the much anticipated Eddie Aikau Invitational.
There is a great Supermarket “Food Land” about a half mile from the house, which also has a Starbucks coffee shop. All the Island activities, from scuba diving, to jet-skis are all just minutes away from this tropical retreat. Scuba diving is also a major attraction on the North Shore with both boat and shore dives available. Waimea Falls is only a mile away, and hiking at Waimea Valley and visiting the falls is an unforgettable experience. The property is 1 of 9 properties in all of the North Shore that gets an unobstructed view of the sunset over the water 365 days of the year!(very very special!!)
This is a shared property with another seperate home next door please see VRBO listing! VRBO Listing #468998

Why Melissa Barnes chose Waialee
Why this property? Because it has such an authentic Hawaiian vibe with the most amazing quiet beach in its back yard! Families that rent our property come as strangers and usually end up leaving as friends as they get to meet with other families on or near the property and creating lifetime friendships/memories!

A REAL Hawaiian Beach Shack
Absolute beach front beach shack. Walking distance from reknowned surfing spots. Food vans everywhere. House clean, just everything we needed. Thanks Melissa for the great communication prior. And your friendly aloha.
Great beach access
Unfortunately our stay was too short to enjoy everything this area has to offer.
We LOVE the Backyards Bungalow!
Our family of four had an amazing stay at the Backyards Bungalow! Everything was even more beautiful that the photos depict. Hearing the waves crash against the shore was soothing, and very much enjoyed. Our two sons, ages 18 and 22 truly enjoyed the natural beauty of the North Shore, and we all enjoyed wonderful family time in a beautiful setting. Our morning and afternoon walks on the beach were fantastic, and there is no better place to watch a sunset than right out in front of the property on the beach with beach chairs provided by Melissa and Tyler. Thank you both for sharing your piece of paradise with us, and Melissa, we really enjoyed meeting your parents and Koa (hope I got the sweet pup's name correct). Also, we loved the adorable geckos that visited outside our windows in the evening. Thank y'all again for a truly enjoyable getaway!
Location is Amazing!
This is all about the location; beach is amazing and not many people. It reminds me of Tofino, BC. The cabin is bare bones but clean. Only problem we had was the deck leaked when raining.
The place was clean, quiet and quite nice. The couple who run it are lovely to deal with also
Property is perfect great surfing all around. There were whales breaching as we had morning coffie on the terrace. The property is elevated from the beach which gives it a nice privacy. Highly recommend.
Could not ask for a better location - the walk down to the beach and back is a dream. Owners are kind and accommodating - thank you so much for our wonderful stay!
