Recent Waialua reviews

  • Location! Location! Location!

    "This was our third trip to the North Shore and by far our favorite home to stay in. Jamie was both accommodating and made us feel assured that everything for our stay was taken care of. Waialua Retreat is a treasure. The perfect location to explore and relax. It's far enough from the crowds to have your own private family vacation but close enough to activities, great food and entertainment. The house is beautiful and when you walk out the back door your a handful of steps from the beach! We made good use of the kayaks, jacuzzi and beach supplies. There's everything a family needs to enjoy Oahu. Can't wait for our next stay."

  • excellent

    "Perfect location up on the North Shore. Easy and friendly owners and booking process. Living room is a little dated, but the view makes more than up for it. Lot of amenities. I hope we can come back on day."

  • COZY COTTAGE w/PRIVACY on GORGEOUS manicured land

    "This adorable country cottage is well maintained, thoughtfully decorated, and very well equipped -- and includes two full bathrooms (one is accessible from outdoors) w/plenty of towels (including beach and lounging towels), covered washer and dryer, BBQ (charcoal) grill and a well stocked kitchen area. The covered south facing lanai provides plenty shade all day, but the HUGE grassy area is perfect for lounging in the sun (all day). The unit is especially well suited for those seeking privacy, and peace and quiet. Marian (the host) is a dream to work with, very hospitable - but allows for complete privacy. She and her husband (and beautiful dog Ruby) live in the main house also on the grounds, hundreds of yards away - so it is as if you have the entire 2 acres parcel of pristine and manicured gardens to yourself. The private gate and driveway access to the cottage, is separate from the one the owners use (on the other side of the property). The setting is truly serene, indeed idyllic for the visitor seeking peace, quiet and rest - but yet very close access to the nearby secluded local beach. Other North Shore attractions are only 10 minutes away by car. This part of the island cools nicely most evenings, but there is a window unit air conditioner in the living room which sufficiently cools the entire cottage if needed. Everything in the cottage worked very well, was well maintained - and very, very clean. It is clear that much love and care has gone into the place over the years. Star gazing on a clear light is will delight anyone (there are even binoculars in the unit). This is my second visit, and my wife and hope to return many more times!"

  • Great property, great location, "real Oahu"

    "We had a lovely time near the northwestern tip of Oahu. The area is convenient to everywhere on the island by vehicle (45 mins to 1 hr), with a relaxing drive through the agricultural part of the island, hitting only a little traffic on the way to Honolulu or elsewhere SW/SE. The ocean out the back door, beaches just down the road, mountains on the other side of the street, seeing sunrise/sunsets both from your backyard --it all made for an amazing stay. The property was in great shape, clean, as listed, and was plenty of room for our party of six. It was warm inside after coming back in the afternoons, but as soon as the oceanside doors were open, the house was instantly cool again. The kids even got a little cold at night, so heat isn't a problem, although the humidity takes a few days to get used to. Plenty of extra amenities made the trip easier: beach towels, boogie boards, cooler--these definitely came in handy. Kitchen was well-stocked (even a blender for smoothies/milkshakes when we weren't eating shave ice). Large DVD selection if you want to spend time indoors (this is Hawaii). The kids would have liked a backyard beach, but still amazing views. Front fence helped with privacy and car noise from semi-busy road. Area felt safe with two kids camps nearby. Great hikes 2 & 3 miles away, quickly rising to amazing ocean views in the mountainous state park across the road and a 2.5 mi hike that gives amazing sunrise views from the absolute northwest tip of the island. Each of these trailheads is accessible by car in 5 mins--some of the premier hikes on the island. For hang-gliding or sky-diving, the airfield across the street is where many go on the island for this--staying here avoids the hour drive from Waikiki. The North Shore was 30 minutes away, Waikiki 50 mins with traffic, Turtle Bay (snorkeling), Turtle Beach (sea turtles) 25-30 mins away on the north shore. Oceanfront horseback riding & polo 1/2 mile south. Beautiful ocean sunsets anywhere along the road 1-3 miles north to the tip if you aren't satisfied with the one out your back door. Plan ahead for groceries: 22 mins to Foodland, but Costco right off H2N is 30 mins away (cheapest gas in Oahu). For those seeking the "real local" experience, with activities that won't be packed with busloads of tourists getting dumped off with you, this is the place to stay to hit those remote stops. We'd stay here again when we're in Oahu, and recommend others stay here."
