Great Hawaii get away

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time getting away from the bustle. So special hearing the waves each night and day and being so close to it. Nice, grassy yard area with lounge chairs to admire the ocean. A hammock, perfectly placed to take advantage of ocean views. Property is on a street with other homes, yet is fenced and surrounded by trees to create lots of privacy. On and on.

Highly recommend!

Perfect Beach Location!

  • 5 of 5

I give this home 5 stars based on the location alone! The lagoon right off the yard had crystal clear, calm water perfect for swimming, snorkelling and beach fun. My family spent hours and hours out there. I had to drag them away to do any sight seeing. There were sea turtles every day and we even had a seal swim up to sun himself on the reef. Located in between Haleiwa and Waimea makes it convenient to shopping and restaurants but not in the middle of the busyness. If I am ever fortunate enough to return to O'ahu, I would love to stay at the Blue Lagoon again. That being said, the house itself is a charming surf cottage that needs minor attention in the bathroom (especially the flooring). The bottom step leading to the beach looks to have been eroded away making it difficult for older people to get down there not to mention back up. I actually fell down once. These are minor issues and would not deter me from renting again but I would hope that some maintenance could be done. Overall, the amazing lagoon makes this property worth it!

Ready to go back

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Blue Lagoon. We chose the North Shore to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday. The cottage has a lot of character and was very comfortable. We enjoyed snorkeling and inspecting the tide pools for little fish during low tide. It was nice to sit out in the yard and on the lanai for meals or to just enjoy the view. The only thing missing was a copy of the North Shore in the DVD collection!

This house is magical and Stephanie is a wonderful host. Great Surf during the season out front. You can do the surf report from looking at the window. Just an incredibly special place.

Amazing Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect beach house. Well stocked with everything we needed for a week long stay. The "private" beach setting in our back yard with the reef for snorkeling made every day a perfect Hawaii beach day. The sunsets were amazing. The one full bathroom situation was not a problem, especially with the half bath and the out door shower (with hot and cold water). Even without air-conditioning in most of the house, the fans and the breeze from the beach were all that was needed. We loved this place, and want to return with the entire family. This place is perfect for just adults or those with small children. Thank you.

Slice of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Sheer perfection! This truly is the best secluded beach ever ever ever! Our family had a better time there than we could have ever hoped for. The house sits on an amazing property, with billion dollar picturesque views. The house itself is a charming beach house that worked awesomely for our family. It's truly living like a local, in a space you never want or need to leave. Would love to stay here again one day. For now we will have the fondest memories of this dreamy beach house.

Turtle Bay resort
Car: recommended

This is a classic Hawaiian beachfront home, built in the forties. Most of these type houses have been torn down and replaced by McMansions along the North Shore. Many celebrities return to this home's laid back vibe.

It is right in front of the surf break called Leftovers and to the left is Chuns Reef, perfect for beginner surfers.

The home is a rustic North Shore home with an extraordinary beach out front.
