The Area: From the bedrooms, deck, lanai, pool/hot tub, or great-room you can surf check such famous breaks as Rocky Point, Monster Mush, Kammies, Sunset, Backyards, V-Land, Phantoms, and Revelations. Also located close by are the Bonsai Pipeline, Backdoor and Waimea Bay. You are only a short walk to Sunset beach, and you can easily walk to Ted's Bakery for breakfast, lunch, or a fresh-baked island treat. The bike path follows the shoreline and takes you from Sunset Point all the way to Waimea Bay and waterfall. Foodland is only a few minutes away where you will find groceries and a Starbucks which opens at 5:30 in the morning for the early risers. The town of Haleiwa is a 10 minute drive away and has shopping, dinning, deep sea fishing, jet ski rentals, shark diving, etc.
The North Shore offers so much, but you will find it difficult to leave the peaceful pool lanai with it's cool tradewinds and relaxing atmosphere.
We are a family that loves to spend time together both being active and relaxing. We also enjoy spending time with friends and family so we built this house taking all of this into our design. We love to surf, bike ride, hike, walk, swim and relax together. The house allows us to be together when we want to but also has enough spaces to sneak away to read a book alone when we choose.
Please contact Owner: Katie purchased this house in 2005
We love the North Shore of Oahu because of it's country like setting: no hotels in sight. The people are very friendly, healthy and fun. The area is full of outdoor activities, if you so choose, or it can be extremely quiet and relaxing. Although it is in 'the country,' it is only a short 3 miles to Turtle Bay where we can play tennis, golf, bike, ride horses, visit the spa or have a wonderful fine dining experience. It's 6 miles into Haliewa town to visit lots of cute shops, dine or rent water equipment. We have developed some truly wonderful friendships with local families and feel this is really our home away from home.
Views, Views and more Views! Amenities all over the place. Cooking is a dream here, you won't want to leave.
Please no Parties or Events
Katie & Einar, I just want to tell you that we had the most wonderful trip to Oahu and your house is absolutely fabulous! Words cannot even describe the view, the house and the awesome time we had. We got there at approximately 1 am on Sunday the 24^th . Of course, we could not see much but the house was all lit up, as you said it would be, and we finally settled down and went to bed, although most of us were up at 5 taking pictures and already planning a trip in 2 years. As the week went on, we were more impressed with everything. The house is more than we ever expected (even better than the pictures on the internet). We loved the fact that we were able to have all that space and not confined to a hotel room. We were close enough to the beach and the North Shore is the best place to be even thought we had to make quite a drive to do the “touristy” things. We opened the house up, as you said we could do, and did not close it at all.Ginger and Ralph were the best! They were so friendly and helpful with any and all questions we had. We thoroughly enjoyed them. You could not have anyone better to oversee your house.We would like to book a week in June of 2009, either the 2^nd or 3^rd week. Let me know what we need to do.We hated to leave your paradise. It was not fun for us to get on that plane to come home.Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to stay in your beautiful home on Oahu. We will definitely be back!Aloha and Mahalo,Sandy
We rented a house and got a HOME!! This house has the Hawaiin Spirit and Soul. It is well built, very well cared for, it is in the best location in the North Shore. Its definitely cozy, comfortable and very charming. The pool and the spa are special. The perfct view of Sunste Beach. We had an amazing family and friends vacation.
We had 8 adults, 4 kids with us for an October Birthday retreat, where we would be celebrating about 6 birthdays!
The location sits up in the lower hills of Sunset Beach, looking down on the beach area. It is about a 10-15 minute walk to Ted's Bakery, about 5 minutes to Sunset Beach itself. So a really great location for the North Shore. The street is super quiet at all times of the day (House being built next door should be done soon) and night.
The property is super well furnished including plenty of kitchen utensils, shampoo/conditioner in every bathroom, towels (Beach and property), beach chairs, bikes, bodyboards, snorkeling gear, hairdryers, etc. Really have thought of it all.
The pool and hot tub were clean, and in constant use our whole time there.
Parking was very sufficient for our whole group. We had three cars and never had issues getting spots on property. Room for more if needed!
We ate on the property pretty much every night, which i guess is testimony to how comfortable we were on the property.
We were able to open up all the windows and doors to the house from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. When the winds blew, it really was nice! Beware, you back up to the jungle, and critters become a part of it. Not uncommon to see lizards all over the walls in this environment. The kids loved it! So did the adults.
We received great information on activities from the owners prior to our arrival, and definitely utilized that packet a bunch on the trip. The caretakers on property were wonderful and super helpful. Loved Ralph and Ginger.
The kids really enjoyed the bunk situation in their room. The theme was awesome!
Definitely would recommend this property for groups of all sizes.
We were 8 adults at this property. The house was just perfect. We saw whales from the living room and lanai most mornings, beautiful sunsets each night and a glorious rainbow after a brief shower. The house has everything we needed. We cooked at the house most nights and found every tool we could ever need. The pool and hot tub are beautiful spots to relax. I wish I had another visit to Oahu planned so I could book my return now!
First of all, I would like to thank Katie for her patience and consideration. This is her families vacation home and she was extremely helpful with accommodating my family to ensure we had what we needed for our visit. She was easy to work with and very responsive. She also gave us some of the best instructions for Deep Sea fishing (contacts as well), Surfing and must visit beaches and waterfalls. I was more interested in the Van's Tripple Crown Surf Comp and my family was content with the pool and hot tub. There are two caretakers (Ginger and Ralph) who are there to ensure the property is cared for during and after each rental who live in the lower house when you enter the property.
Now, on to the review: The property is absolutely gorgeous. Probably the nicest in the area. It is located up a sloping road into the hills (maybe 400 meters or 1200 yards) from the main beach at sunset beach. The property has 4 houses (3 of which are for rental). The Main house is the most beautiful and sits in between the other two. It has two bedrooms. The queen bed is in the room in the back of the house (no view of the ocean). The other one is a very cool bunk bed room that can cram 7 smaller people into. Excellent for children.Their are two bathrooms (one of them is in the room with the queen bed). The kitchen, dinning and living room are stunning with full ocean views. The windows all open up (floor to ceiling) so all rooms become open air and are gorgeous to hid from the sun and relax with a view of the ocean. The pool and hot tub are right off the living room. The hot tub has a view of the ocean, although the sunsets are not visible since the sun sets on the west and the view is north western. It's still pretty bonkers to chill in the hot tub after a long day. All of the toiletries and kitchen ware is provided. We only needed half of the massive table in the kitchen (seats 14 comfortably). The entire house is made of concrete and professionally designed/architecture. The second house with the king bed has the best view of the ocean and a cute patio to chill on. The second house with the queen bed was much more private and could be used for a couple that want's to have their own space. Their is enough beach gear here so you won't need to rent anything (saving a lot of $$$). If I make it back to Oahu, I'll be looking at this property as my primary option. We had an amazing rental experience with Katie.
This home is even better than the pictures. Our entire family 9 adults and 7 children stayed at this home for a once in a lifetime family vacation. We were not disappointed! The kids loved sleeping in the ship bunk beds, swimming in the pool and soaking in the hot tub. Everything that we needed was there. We ate in almost everyday and the kitchen was stocked with everything that we needed. The owners were very helpfull. Sending us information on things to do and places to go. We walked to Ted's Bakery almost every morning ususally with kids in tow. Even rode bikes to Foodland! Don't look any further this is the place to stay on the North Shore.
Fabulous vacation home. Three families, six children, perfect space. Privacy for the adults; fun, fun, bunkbeds (each with their own porthole) for the children. One of my grand daughters said her favorite thing was "the bunk beds".
The open air living is the best way to experience Hawaii's views and weather.
loved, loved it.
This house is 1 block up and 1 block over from Sunset Beach life guard tower, on a quiet, private, dead end road allowing for its incredible and expansive views. Sunset Beach is the heart of the Magic Ten Miles of the North Shore surf scene. The consistent North Pacific swells and prevailing off-shore trade winds create some of the best surfing conditions in the world. The North Shore is the 'country ' of the Hawaiian experience. The winter season offers the energy and pulse of the North Shore surfing action. The summertime offers a classic country, beach setting with great diving, wind sports, and beach activities. Nearby you can find jungle hiking, golf, tennis, waterfalls, shopping, fine dining and The Polynesian Cultural Center which offers a wonderful island learning experience featuring live dancing, shows and luau.
Other Activities: amazing whale watching and surfing from the house and pooldeck
Golf: Golfing can be found just 5 minutes away at The Turtle Bay Resort. The resort also features tennis and has two fine dining restaurants, one over looking the golf course, the other is on the beach.
A community course is also located 25 minutes eastward in Laie. The oceanfront course offers great views and an affordable alternative to the famous Turtle Bay course.
Free tennis and basketball courts can be found at the Elementary School located directly across from Pipeline parking lot, just 2 minutes from the house.
