Guestbook comments from the owner

Two of us are from Nova Scotia, two from Florida and one from Lake Louise, Canada. Love the laidback life on the north shore - wind, waves, mountains, turtles, ohana - nothing better than that. The windward side is the place for us. Some of us here many times since 1965, some of us here for the first time. All would come back. Truly an aloha house.

We loved it!!!

  • 5 of 5

It wasn't easy to select the perfect place to stay by looking online, but once we found this we knew that it was IT....and boy were we right! The listing and website are very accurate. A group of 7 of us (2 couples, 3 singles) ranging from mid 30's - 60, family and friends, all stayed for a week of bliss. Well, 5 of us were there for a week and the one couple only came for a long weekend and wished they could stay longer. The bedrooms and sleeping areas were all comfortable, and you can fall asleep listening to the surf. The landscaping is beautiful. The house itself provided plenty of room to eat together as a group or to hang out on our own. The kitchen was wonderful and we prepared nearly all of our meals at the house and ate together. The grill was easy to use and had the most impressive grill cover. We used the washer and dryer and all of the beach equipment daily, and there were plenty of towels and linens for all. This is an extremely swim-able location, well suited for children or folks who aren't strong swimmers or real comfortable in deep water. Yet, it was also great for snorkeling and kayaking. The area is very convenient to the North Shore or swimming/snorkeling up at the Turtle Bay Resort. There are two grocery stores just a few miles up the road. Tamura's Market is closer, cheaper, and has alcohol, while the Foodland is more extensive but does not sell alcohol (good place for souvenirs) - just give them your phone number to get the Foodland discount card! We recommend you buy local produce (at the stores) as it is fresh and very reasonably priced...and there are a few fruit stands along the road near Turtle Bay as well. There's a post office nearby. Shawn was great, the rental arrangements and payments went so smoothly, and the rental guide book is well worth reading as soon as you get there. Even taking out the trash was made easy because everything was so well explained! The highest compliment I have is that it didn't just feel like our home away from home - it *was* our home. I felt safe and secure and I had everything I needed right there. It's not a negative - but do be careful getting in and out of the driveway as its on a bit of a curve and it's not easy to see traffic. This is the place to relax and have fun with loved ones and ENJOY IT ALL because you will want to stay forever!!

Perfect Beach Front House

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a week with a few friends. The house had it all. It was perfect for those lazy days and a good jumping off point for North Shore and down Windward side of island sightseeing. It's also close to those Yummy Shrimp Trucks and road side fruit stands. In the area I would definitely recommend Kahuku Grill, Giovanni's Shrimp Truck, and Ted's Bakery.

As soon as you opened the front door of the house you could hear the surf. It was great for lulling me to sleep. From almost all of the rooms you could see the Ocean and you felt as though you were on a ship. The Ocean directly behind he house was swimmable and most of the time we were the only ones in sight. There were tons of water equipment to use. i.e. snorkels, fins, body boards, kayaks and life jackets. We also got to enjoy a couple of sunrises from one of the house decks.

Shawn the property manager was very helpful booking, answering questions and provided all the info needed for a fun stay. I also want to note that the house was the cleanest and most organized rental we have ever experienced. We all agreed that this beach house is good bang for the buck.

My family and I had a great time at this wonderful home literally right on the beach. It was just what I expected it to be and just as beautiful as the pictures and descriptions depict it to be! My two teenagers were worried there wouldn't be anything to do.. however, they loved swimming and body boarding at the beach right outside the back door and my husband loved to take out the kayak and snorkel. Everything you need is there! We loved going to the many & various beaches to play and to watch the surfers. The management is wonderful, providing all sorts of info about the area and recommendations. We were able to plan our whole stay just by the recommendations. We loved it so much that we were actually disappointed with Waikiki and all felt that we wished we would have just rented the house for the entire time!

awesome place

  • 5 of 5

Great house, pictures are exact. Awesome home with unreal location and view. Swimming in the ocean is 10 feet from your deck. Air conditioning in every room, close to everything yet still private.

Shawn was very friendly and helpful, I would recommend this to anyone. I stayed with my wife, three kids, and in-laws and it worked out wonderfully.

Great value, and I hope to stay here again.

Watch the Sunrise and Listen to the Waves!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this house for 5 days the beginning of February 2011. We wished it could have been 5 weeks! The location is beautiful, the surf literally came up to within a few feet of the deck at high tide. We laid in bed and watched the sunrise over the ocean. The beach is beautiful and just the people from the surrounding houses are around. I loved the quiet, this is not a place to party it is a place to relax. There is a bit of street noise from the highway out front but not enough to bother you, the waves are louder than the traffic most of the time.

Everything we needed was there, toys, lounges and a super well equipped kitchen. The house is very intuitive, when you need something it is right where you think it should be. The beds were very comfortable and everything was clean, clean, clean!

Shawn, the manager lives next door and is super nice. He has put together a very helpful book about restaurants and attractions in the area that is on the kitchen counter. The pictures and description on the website are accurate. It actually looks better in real life than the wonderful pictures in the listing and on the website.

I am so glad we rented this home and we can't wait to go back! My only suggestion is however long you are planning to stay, double it!

As the only other review has the disclaimer that they are relatives of the owner I will put in my own disclaimer---I found this listing on Homeaway and didn't know anyone involved in the property. This was my first experience renting a vacation home and Shawn and the property have me hooked on doing it again and again for future vacations.

Really! On The Beach :)

  • 5 of 5

I am now over 50 years old. I was raised in Monterey california and loved to surf as a teen ager. To live ON THE BEACH on Oahu was a dream come true. I snorkeled, swam, fished, canoed, rode the break at the beach reef all in my back yard :). I especially enjoyed just sitting on the back patio with a beer and family and looking at it and pinching myself. Yep it is true. Of course the short drive to the Pipe and Waiamia bay was special. I went there to watch the young guys surf. Way better than looking at magazines.

Nearest Airport

Nearest Restaurant
1 Miles
Papa Ole's, Surfin' Tacos, Hau'ula Korean BBQ 1 Is
Car: necessary

Hau'ula and the surrounding area is often likened to 'old Hawaii,' still representing what Hawaii once was. Instead of large malls and chain restaurants (i.e. Waikiki), the area has family-owned gift shops, unique little restaurants, and a pace of life that many envision when planning their Hawaii trips.

Highlights of the area:

(1) five minute drive to the Polynesian Cultural Center, Hawaii's #1 tourist attraction

(2) many great hikes (some with waterfalls) in the mountains directly behind the place

(3) lush green foliage and mountainsides, drawing comparisons with Maui

(4) good, local people offering a glimpse into 'true' Hawaii living: a truly authentic Hawaiian experience

(5) twelve minute drive to Turtle Bay Resort, and their golf courses, restaurants, bars, massages, helicopter rides, etc.

(6) minutes to good surfing spots, and only about 20 minutes to famous big-wave spots like Pipeline and Sunset Beach

(7) quiet, tranquil, peaceful...the best way to describe Hau'ula!

Other Activities: Island's best hiking in the mountains adjacent to the house.
