Recent North Shore Oahu reviews

  • A true Hawaiian Beach house! Great location on the North Shore. Quiet and scenic views.

    "Our family had been planning a Hawaii vacation for years. It was to be THE vacation. We knew that where we stayed would make up a big part of our experience. We didn't want big city or the tourist trap feel, so Waikiki and Honolulu were out. A house for 6...no, a beach house for 6, that would be awesome. So the search was on. When we found "Double Rainbow", it seemed like there was a mistake. A rental this nice, on the beach? Not possible, but there it was. We booked it right then. We arrived in Honolulu, drove to the North Shore, and walked into "our house" for the week. AMAZING! The views from the house, the waves singing us to sleep every night, and the location were perfect. We wanted a quiet place where our family could retreat to after a day of exploring or sightseeing or shopping or whatever. We could wake up every morning and walk along the beach as the sun came up over the mountains. We could make breakfast there in a great kitchen or drive 5 minutes to Haleiwa Cafe for Belgian waffles. We would open up the sliding glass doors to our bedroom and enjoy the sun and ocean breeze on our lanai. We would eat lunch or dinner on the lanai on the main floor as the ocean waves crashed on the beach less than 100 feet away. Every beach in Hawaii is public, but if 6 people walked across our beach in a day that was a record. The house is great for families. 2 bedrooms, 3 full baths, pull out couch, futon, and 2 daybeds. Plenty of hot water, even after 6 showers, a load of laundry, and the dishwasher. A big stove, big refrigerator, and wine fridge held everything we needed for the week. The wifi was great for the kids (and parents). We used the washer and dryer more than we thought we would. No need to wait for towels and swimsuits to dry out. Don't let the location of being on the North Shore scare you away. The waves outside the house are small due to the reefs hundreds of yards off shore. Also, Haleiwa Beach is sheltered, so my boys learned to surf on the smaller waves, as my wife and daughter looked for turtles while snorkeling. Haleiwa, Sunset Beach, Polynesian Cultural Center, and Turtle Bay are all on the North Shore area and are all awesome. Hawaii was amazing, the house was fantastic, and the memories will last forever. This house was a large part of making this trip worth every penny. We hope to return one day and staying here again will be part of that. P.S. One minor issue- more bath towels. Homeowner had towels there the next day. Thank you."

  • Perfect Family reuinion location

    "Hard to put into words how beautiful this home and grounds are! Having never been to Hawaii we left the location to our Daughter-in-laws & they without a doubt found the perfect spot for our family & my wife & me to celebrate our 50th Wedding anniversary with our 2 sons & their children - one grandson also celebrated his birthday. As we opened the redwood gate we say the beautiful curving driveway with flowers & fruit trees along with a beautifully landscaped yard for family activities! Then we saw the Home - as beautiful as in the pictures - we were stopped in our tracks as we saw each of the 3 sleeping areas, each perfect to be together yet to have privacy as needed. The deck gave glorious views of the ocean, tennis courts, fountains/gazebo, rainbows (at least 2 times a day) & the mountains. The kitchen was furnished with everything we could need + some staples that every cook needs but typically doesn't have or purchases for a week long stay! The owner, Gregory, gave wonderful directions to Costco & to 'our home', met us & graciously showed us around & met every need we had, plus gave us wonderful advice & guidance. The walk to the almost private beach was easy, the waves were great, the late November water was warm & the hot tub on the upper deck was so refreshing after a swim (great shower to wash off the sand before getting in the hot tub) or just to relax. The eating area was perfect for our 11 members as there are 2 long tables with stools to eat on the deck or a large table inside - but who wants to eat inside when you can eat outside on a covered deck. Speaking about eating there are plenty of coconuts and passion fruit to allow everyone to have their fill! There are enough games to play outdoors, puzzles/games to play indoors, plus enough snorkeling equipment, fins, boogie boards to keep everyone happy + enough towels to dry off! If you run out of clothes, the washer and dryer are big and easy to use. The bbq grill is large enough for the family to eat from at one time & is always filled with gas! I can only say if we ever get to Hawaii again or if we have any friends going, I would stay here again & highly recommend it - as it is close to the water & Haleiwa yet private, luxurious yet comfortable, spacious yet cozy, all anyone could ask for, including an outside bar/refrigerator so you can keep cool even in the hot tub. Thanks Greg for letting us stay with you! We look forward to visiting again. No one in our group could ask for more."

  • Great place for our family vacation

    "We visited the North Shore for 4 days and staying here was wonderful. We had plenty of space for 4 adults and a 2 year old. It was so great to be within walking distance of Sharks Cove, the food trucks, and Foodland (grocery store). We got great use out of the bikes, beach chairs, sand toys, umbrellas etc. They had everything we needed! Thanks for the great accomidations!"
