Honu Hale I - 3BR, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 8 Vacation Rental Mokuleia, Hawaii USA
Why stay in a rental when you can vacation like an owner in this authentic Hawaiian cottage with model furnishings? Experience all the tropical wonders of the North Shore; swim with the turtles, fish, snorkel, kayak, and surf. And if you are brave enough, skydive in your backyard!
Fall asleep to the soothing sound of the waves. Melt into world-class beds and comfortable amenities.
Honu Hale is an authentic Hawaiian beach/oceanfront single story vacation home on the North Shore of Oahu, just feet from the waters edge.
If you are looking to spend your Hawaiian vacation in a small picturesque town in a secluded area, only 35 minutes from Honolulu, this is the place for you! It has a variety of excellent restaurants and it is a great place for all water-sports, including snorkeling, scuba diving, surfing, windsurfing, and kayaking.
Other favorite activities include walking on the beach, fishing, skydiving, horseback riding, tennis, golfing, biking, and hiking the nearby end of the North Shore Road.
Honu Hale is named after the numerous sea turtles that play in our waters. You can enjoy your dinner in the large backyard as the sunsets dazzle you and the cool ocean breezes gently caress you. Isn't this what a tropical paradise is supposed to be?
Honu Hale is situated on the ocean, with unobstructed ocean views and an unbeatably quiet and private location.
Come stay where the people of Oahu come to get away from the crowds. Mokuleia is on Oahu's North Shore, but is a secret to most. It is just 35 minutes from Honolulu, seven minutes from the town of Haleiwa, and 15 minutes from Hawaii's famous Waimea Bay and Pipeline.
A great horseback riding and equestrian center is just across the street.
Enjoy the sunset every day in your backyard from the bubbling Jacuzzi or on the rooftop deck.
Mokule`ia provides some of Oahu's best and least crowded surfing. Most of our guests enjoy staying close to home and enjoying the ultimate Hawaiian Paradise. Within a 10 minute drive are fine restaurants, quaint shops, a marina for fishing and sightseeing, and North Shores world famous surfing.
Just a short drive from the nearly private beaches and sets of both popular TV series Lost and Baywatch. Honu Hale’s location is also a great home base if you are interested in sightseeing. Conveniently located 10 minutes from the H2 Hwy, you can get across the island within 20 minutes.

We had such a wonderful time in Hawaii! The jacuzzi was great, we could sit and watch the ocean from the backyard in comfort. Would definitely love to come back!
Thank you for staying with us, glad you had a relaxing time!
The home was comfortable for my family and I, although the sleeping arrangements didn't work and some slept on a mattress on the floor. The home is not set up for more than two couples. The lighting lacked, very difficult to play games and socialize with minimal lighting. Location was nice, not the waterfront I was hoping for, water not accessible. Also, on the North Shore we had to drive away from the area to enjoy a beach. The dishwasher did not work, no matter what setting we put it on. With 8 people, an upgrade should be considered. Toilet paper was not included, you are left a few rolls to last a couple of days. There was enough charcoal for one BBQ, a gas or propane BBQ would be better. I was disappointed with the check out list that was left. For the money that was paid, guests should not have to wash all towels, wipe down appliances, etc. My family and I left the home immaculate, far beyond what the hosts were anticipating and I had to request my damage deposit back three times. I found this unacceptable. The refund should have been issued the next day. I also had to remind the host of the week discount as this was not offered either and came lagging behind the damage deposit return. What made it special was having my family together.
Thanks for your feedback! We love hearing about our guests’ experiences and how we could have made their stay more enjoyable. We listen to our guests and work to make adjustments for future guests where necessary. We are so sorry to hear that the lighting in the home was dimmer than what you would have preferred and the dishwasher was malfunctioning during your stay. We wished you would have mentioned these things while staying at our property so that we could have fixed and made your stay more enjoyable. In regards to the ocean, unfortunately we really cannot predict the condition of the ocean just as we cannot predict the weather. All we can do is provide the best accommodations that we are able to and control the things that we can to the best of our ability. We pride ourselves in providing oceanfront accommodations with access to the ocean from the backyard via aluminum ladder for an extremely competitive cost as compared to the market.
Our Honu Hale I has three bedrooms with 2 king beds, 2 twin beds, 2 daybeds with trundles, and a pack n’ play. This is comfortable sleeping for 8 plus a baby and is definitely suitable for multiple couples. With respect to the toilet paper, we provide 4 large rolls in each bathroom and have plenty of backup to replenish if anyone should run low. Honu Hale I is very desirable and is generally booked every day with guests checking in the day of the prior guests departure. Therefore, the checkout requirements are pretty standard for desirable homes and allow our caretakers to turn the homes around quickly for the next guests. Regarding the security deposit and rebate, when you book a property through HomeAway, your security deposit is held by HomeAway. Once we receive the departure reports from our caretakers, we approve for refunds to be issued through Home Away as soon as administratively possible. We typically approve security deposit refunds with Home Away within 14 days from guest’s departure date, then Home Away can take up to 5-7 business days for the funds to show up on your account. With respect to the $200 rebate that we offered you, it was applied on the same date your security deposit was refunded. This information was communicated to you multiple times and unfortunately, we have no control on getting your security deposit to you sooner due to HomeAway administering this refund. We thank you for choosing our home for your home away from home and appreciate your feedback.
Comfortable Oceanfront Vacation!
We were so pleased with our stay here. The house is very comfortable with stocked pantry and kitchen. They also have everything you could want for beach play...towels, toys, chairs, etc. We were traveling with small children and they also had a pack n play, high chair, floaties, kids toys! It was so nice to not have to worry about anything! Last but not least...the VIEW!!! It’s just incredible!! We would highly recommend staying at this wonderful property!
Great team to work with!
Lighthouse Management was so easy to work with. The home was a great base for our Hawaii vacation this year. It was removed from the more tourist destinations so we could enjoy our time at home in peace, but not so far away we couldn't enjoy what the whole island had to offer. Would 10/10 recommend this home.
Thank you for the compliments, we are so happy you had a great time!
My brother's graduation present from the family - a trip to Hawaii! He loves surfing, and we had such a great time checking out the Banzai pipeline. The home was close to all the great surfing spots Oahu has to offer, and we loved our stay. Thanks for such a wonderful time!
Would stay here again
Surprised my wife with a trip to Hawaii for her birthday, and we had such a great time! The home was very accommodating and we didn't need to pick up anything. The sundeck and screened porch were a plus!
