Incredible Beachfront Property- Pure Paradise on the North Shore!

  • 5 of 5

This house is a dream! Situated on the most beautiful beach on the North Shore, you can surf, paddleboard, boogie board and swim right in front of the house! We saw multiple turtles when paddleboarding which was fun. We stayed here on our honeymoon two and a half years ago, and just HAD to come back. The caretaker Ernie is so friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable of the area (he's lived on Oahu his whole life!) and we fell in love with his dogs, Kui & Kahu. We went for a run or walk on the beach each morning- it's a little over 2 mile stretch of beach, and the sand is so soft. We'd come back to the house for breakfast and make smoothies or pancakes every morning, the kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need. We grilled most nights too- the local food (even from the nearby grocer, Tamura's) is so fresh and delicious. The outdoor shower was awesome. We only used the master bedroom (bed is so comfortable and you hear the waves crashing all night, so relaxing) but you could sleep up to 8 people in the house. Having a washer/dryer made things easy. The house has beach chairs, towels, toys, boogie boards, snorkel gear, etc. all for you to use, which is awesome. A local surf company to delivers surf boards and paddle boards that you can rent for your time here. We hired a massage therapist to come bring a table and we had massages outside with an ocean view- highly recommended! The house is close to tons of great food options for eating out... yummy food trucks, fruit stands, turtle bay, Haleiwa, etc. Some of our Hawaii favorites are Fumi's shrimp farm, Bonzai Bowls (Acai Bowls), Shave Ice from Matsumoto's in Haleiwa, and Guadalajara Grill in Laie for the best Mexican we've ever had. Also Angel's ice cream shop is only 3 mins from the house next to Foodland- dangerous for a sweet tooth like me! We can't say enough good things about this house and this special place. It's magical.

What a gem! Our week here was ‘heaven sent.’ We were 100 steps from a quiet, white sand beach.

  • 5 of 5

This home is a great spot for 3 generations! There is something for everyone. Well located on the North Beach - we had tropical breakfasts at home and took junkets all around Oahu. Our week included Pearl Harbor, surf board leasons, snorkeling at Turtle Bay and swimming with sharks. And in the evening, we returned to the Beach House for a Mai Tai and a family dinner on the lanai. The home has everything you need to make it your home ... away from home. Book it for a great week - or longer!

Owner's Response: It made me smile to read your review. I have great memories of my own at the house with my four kids and my parents. The house and property are ideal for multi-generational family reunions. I am so glad your family was able to be together and experience the joys of Malaekahana.

Amazing Beach house

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing beach house. Our family absolutely loved it! It was secluded and quiet with a beach view out the back windows. It was very comfortable for 8 adults. We plan to rent it again in the future. The beach is quiet with very soft sand as well. I would definitely recommend renting this house!

Owner's Response: I’m so happy everything worked out for you. What a wonderful gift to have your family together under one roof. I have many great memories growing up on that beach with my three sisters and loved sharing the same with my four children. The welcome mat is out for your return. Mahalo, David

Wonderful home! Incredible location!

  • 5 of 5

This house had everything you could possibly want/need! Our family of 8 , including a 7 & 8 yr old had plenty of room and really loved the house!

We enjoyed cooking and playing games each evening. The yard & beach became the favorite hang out each day. Close to many activities.

Only drawback would have to be the roosters waking us at 4:00 a.m. & huge waves this time of year for playing on this beach, but we were able to witness some of the great surfing!

we traveled south to some quieter areas for beach time.

David provided great directions &

Brynn was always ready to help when needed.

Plenty of towels and supplies for any need. Could use some boogie boards, but we could have rented.

Owner's Response: Pleased to share our beach house with you. Glad you enjoyed it. December is always a blessing and a curse at the beach. The big waves that travel across the Pacific create amazing surf at the world famous surfing spots along the north shore but they can also stir it up in Malaekahana bay. Glad you found some beaches less impacted by the surf close by. Sorry about the roosters. They add ‘country color’ but they can make it tough to sleep in, in the morning. All the best, David

About David

We have been residents of Hawaii since before statehood. Or family of four grew up spending time in Malaekahana to escape the hustle and bustle of Honolulu and enjoy the beauty of Malaekahana bay and the activities on the North shore. We recently moved to the mainland to be closer to family.

Why David chose Kahuku

Our comfortable home is located on a very quiet, sandy beach, with warm water, gentle currents and the tradewinds Hawaii is famous for. It is a perfect location for families, friends, couples, and anyone looking to kick back and enjoy time together.

What makes this house unique

Guestbook comments from the owner

David's house was perfect. The house is spacious, clean and had everything we needed on hand. We had prebooked for Kayaks, paddle boards, surf boards and snorkeling gear to be delivered right to our house. The sandy bottom beach in front was perfect to for swimming, kayaking and paddle boarding each day. There's a surf break to the left of the house that gives perfect waves all day. I recommend watching the sunrise each morning from any of the bedrooms. It is spectacular. We loved the location. Quiet yet close to hidden beaches, restaurants and groceries. We will return.
