Overview

Overview

Waialua House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2-1/2 bath, sleeps 5

Experience Hawaii like a native!

Miles of quiet beaches for walking and shell collecting. This is truly a special area of the islands, remote yet only a short drive into the world famous surf town of Haleiwa, and just a 45-minute drive to the excitement of Honolulu and Waikiki.

This lovely guest cottage on a gated beachfront lot is shared with the owner's home. There is an enclosed outdoor hot shower and toilet (in addition to the 1-1/2 baths in the cottage). Comfortably furnished with beautiful landscaping, and only steps to the quiet, secluded, sandy beach in this very quiet neighborhood.

Watch whales, turtles, reef fish, or go snorkeling in shallow water that covers the coral reefs. And at the right time of year you can watch the sun set over the ocean.

The cottage is on a private road, away from the traffic and congestion of Sunset Beach. The beach is one of the best on the island--very private and excellent for swimming and snorkeling.

I take personal checks or PayPal. A $500 security deposit will reserve your dates. Full payment is due 30 days in advance of your arrival date. Your security deposit will be return 14 days after you leave.

About Lori

This is my family's private home. My parents live in the main house. Since I live in Texas, and use the 'Keiki Hale' (children's house) just a few weeks a year, I rent my house for short-term vacations. This property will always stay in my family as my two children love it and have spent all their summers here.

Lori purchased this house in 1962

Why Lori chose Waialua

Our beach is truly exceptional. Private and great for kids. We live on a private residential street that is quiet (except for the wild chickens).

Hawaiian-Style Peace and Quiet

  • 5 of 5
We are former Hawaii residents and visit the Islands regularly. Preferring to stay in condos or cottages, this is one unit that definitely meets our desires.

Peace and quiet is the greatest attribute for this property. Located off the beaten path, on the beach in Waialua, the beauty and quiet is perfect for unwinding and relaxing. Sleeping in and then waking to the sound of the ocean waves and chirping birds will bring a smile to your face.

The unit itself is well-equipped with all of the owner-listed amenities. The grounds, like the unit itself, is maintained nicely. The outdoor hot shower and toilet are a nice touch, especially after time on the beach out back or swimming. Access to the beach is through a gate in the backyard. The beach is very nice...perfect for a nice walk by the water, swimming, or snorkeling. Of course, caution must be used if the surf is high.

Sunsets are easily and wondrously viewed while lounging on lawn chairs at the end of the day.

Local activities we did include snorkeling (on site and also at Shark's Cove), hiking, stand-up paddle boarding (Surf and Sea), and a biplane ride from nearby Dillingham airfield.

Haleiwa town is fun with various other activities. The farmers market on Saturday in Waialua is awesome.

Finally, the review would not be complete without acknowledgement of our on-site hosts who were very gracious and a pleasure to visit with. Aloha, until our next visit.

Pure Pleasure

  • 5 of 5
We couldn't have imagined a better spot. The cottage is clean, comfortable and simply charming. The gorgeous beach is steps from the back door and is virtually private. The property is a peaceful haven yet conveniently located for shopping, restaurants and day trips.

Beautiful and remote!

  • 5 of 5
I thought it might be challenging with the owners parents in the adjacent home, but it wasn't. They are sweet but unobtrusive and we had plenty of private time. The property is clean, updated and well-maintained. I love the location because it is very close to Haliewa, but almost seems like you have your own private beach. We saw only a handful of people on the beach, but when we wanted activity, Haliewa is five minutes away. Really perfect!

FABULOUS!

  • 5 of 5
I almost don't want to rave about this place so we can keep it to ourselves as a secret little gem. Lovely, peaceful, I don't have enough adjectives to describe how much we loved it. Clean, comfortable for 4 people (2 adults and 2 older teens). Beach feels like a private hideaway. The owners are wonderful as well.

Excellent private beach

  • 4 of 5
This cottage was the perfect place for our family of 4 (including 2 teens) to spend our north shore vacation. The location is perfect, away from the congested areas in a quiet residential area, yet a very short drive to Haleiwa, sharks cove, and other popular beaches. If we didn't want to go anywhere, we had our own private beach that provided excellent swimming and snorkling. The sea turtles are plentiful and can be seen on the beach in the early morning about a 1/2 mile from the cottage. The cottage had everything we needed, including beach chairs, boogie boards, towels, and a grill. There was plenty of room for all of us. The only minor complaint is that the bed in the main bedroom was small, as advertised, and not very comfortable either. The owners parents are charming people who were gracious and helpful, without being intrusive. We felt very much at home. We would recommend the waialua area for anyone who wants to experience the real Oahu.

Beautiful and peaceful

  • 5 of 5
This is a magical place to stay in Hawaii. The Hiratani family is the secret bonus to the trip. You'll want to stay forever. The occasional turtle in the ocean, the friendly neighborhood, and the plentiful food available in the area, all makes for a fabulous vacation.

This property is located 5 miles from Historic Haleiwa town (the surfing capitol of the world). It is on a private residential road with minimal traffic, away from the congestion of Sunset Beach. The beach is protected by a reef that makes for wonderful swimming and snorkeling. We don't have the huge waves and undertow of Sunset Beach and we don't have jellyfish like at the beaches at Laie. Mokuleia is truly the best beach on Oahu.
