Enjoy the Hawaiian experience that you have always dreamed of! This beautifully furnished beachfront one bedroom two bath, second floor condominium is located in the only condominium unit in Haleiwa town. Nestled right in between two beautiful state parks; Kaiaka and Ali'i Beach. Directly in front of this unit is a pristine, wide, sandy beach. Enjoy calming ocean views and beautiful sunsets from your private lanai. Located in the front building, our second floor unit offers unbelievable ocean views where you can literally watch sea turtles swim by and whales breaching during whale season. The breezes blow right through our sliders making it amazingly comfortable!
November through May, Humpback Whales are often seen playing right off shore! Sea Turtles abound right in front of this unit where a beautiful reef surrounds a safe swimming area. Watch Monk Seals sunbathe on the sand while they await the arrival of their pups! Right at your footsteps is an amazing snorkeling experience! There are many tropical and beautifully colored fish!

"I just wanted to thank you for allowing us to stay in your amazing wonderful condo last week. It was one of our best vacations ever. We especially enjoyed seeing so many turtles in and out of the water. What a special place you have there. Also, thank you for supplying the iPod charger. My 13-year old appreciated it very much. Thanks again for a clean, comfortable, beautiful spot to immerse ourselves in Hawaii's magic."
We are best friends who met teaching elementary school in Southern California. Both single moms, we dreamed of venturing out and buying some investment property on our own. Heddy and I made a few trips to Hawaii with our kids and fell in love with the North Shore. Heddy's boyfriend ended up moving to the North Shore and Heddy soon followed. She called me on the phone one day and said, 'I found the perfect place, and we're buying it!' 2 months later, this beautiful and unique condo was ours!
We absolutely LOVE this location! I have never been to a more beautiful spot than the North Shore! This location is so quiet and peaceful. The tourists are few and far between. Haleiwa is a quaint little town with great restaurants, shopping, and many water activities! There are dozens of sea turtles to be seen daily. The water is warm, clean, and exhilarating! When my husband and I travel here, we rarely leave Haleiwa Surf, unless we leave in the water on stand-up paddle boards. We sit on the lanai, drink Mai Tai's, and BBQ fresh fish right out on the sand. This is PARADISE!
Haleiwa Joe's is a very short 7 minute walk from our condo. They have great food and great Mai Tai's! Surf'N'Sea is just beyond Haleiwa Joe's where kayaks, stand-up paddle boards, surfboards, and various other water toys can be rented. At sunset, the sea turtles come to rest just 50 yards from our unit. They are stunning!
As far as things to do....there are so many!
Something you must try is stand-up paddle boarding. It is a blast! You can walk down to Surf'N'Sea. Just take a credit card, ID, and the bare necessities you are wearing. (They will hold all of your belongings in the store so you don't need to worry about theft) You can rent stand-up boards there. You can take the boards right out behind the store and practice if you have never done it before. It is easier than it looks. If you are feeling like you have the hang of it, you can paddle up the river right under the Rainbow Bridge. It is beautiful back there and there are so many sea turtles swimming everywhere. We like to paddle all the way back to the condo. The reefs along the way are amazing, and there are LOTS of sea turtles in the open water as well! Then, you can play on the boards all day in front of the condo and practice, and then paddle back to Surf'N'Sea! It really is fun!
Haleiwa Joe's has the best MaiTai's in town! Their Mai Tai's come along with a souvenir cup. Their food is great. The sashimi is so fresh and wonderful! Haleiwa Eats has great Thai food. Jameson's is good. Cholo's is a great Mexican place in the Breakers center (near the entrance to town). Haleiwa Cafe is a MUST for breakfast! It looks like a hole in the wall (it actually is), but there is always a line and the food is great. We always walk here for breakfast. (Again, at the entrance to town) Matsumoto's is worth the wait for their shave ice. It is definitely the best in town. Make sure you put a scoop of ice cream at the bottom. Lui Bueno's is a new Mexican/Seafood Restaurant in town. I have yet to be disappointed there! Great food, great tacos!
Lani's is a famous beach where sea turtles are always found. It is about a 5 - 7 minute drive from the condo. Just drive along, with the ocean on your left, and it will be the first or second semi-crowded beach on your left. You can tell it is Lani's by the amount of tourists. There are plenty of sea turtles there.
Why drive to Lani's and fight your way through the crowds, when you can see PLENTY of sea turtles, right from your own private lanai? Right before sunset, the sea turtles come on the beach to sleep. From the condos, looking towards the water, go to your right, towards Ali'i Beach. You will find lots of sea turtles sleeping. You can't touch them, but they take great pictures!
Standing on the lanai, looking to the left, you will see kite surfers, way out at Kaena Point. Look very carefully...you may see gliders also. We love to drive out there (that is always an adventure, because we always forget how to get there!) You can exit the condos to the right. When the road dead ends turn right. I think you will come to a roundabout and stay to the right. You are looking for signs to Dillingham Airfield. If you go past the airfield, you will eventually see an open beach/park/picnic ground on your right. It is fun to pull in here and watch the kite surfers. Then, we always go back to Dillingham and drive through the airport. They used to keep the original plane from 'Lost' in the back there. It seems to me we didn't see it last time, but we always drive through and look. Often you can see parachuters coming down too.
Turtle Bay is a great place to visit. They have a wonderful bar right on the ocean, by the pool. They have great bar food until 7:00. The sunset views from here are amazing!
Also, the North Shore Shark Tour is so much fun! You can walk to their boat from the condo. They take you out in a shark cage and you see some type of shark out there (not the kind that eat people). When we went, there had just been a huge storm and a dead cow had been washed out to sea. The people tied the cow to our boat and Tiger Sharks were there within minutes! We saw 4 of them, huge, all pecking and eating this cow. It was amazing. I have never been so scared in my life! Anyway, it is a fun experience.
Waimea Bay is a beautiful place to spend a morning. It gets SUPER crowded by 10:00, so go early to find a parking spot. Don't bring anything valuable because there is a lot of theft there. It's close enough to the condo where you could just bring a towel and water bottle and go home before you need money to eat or whatever. Right behind Waimea is the falls area where you can do some light hiking.
Three Tables and Shark's Cove is also just past Waimea. More great snorkeling!
In all honesty, my favorite thing to do is hang out at the condo because it is so beautiful. The beach here is perfect, and there is great snorkeling too!
