About the property

3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

Experience our Tropical Oceanfront Paradise in contemporary Hawaiian accommodations delivering cozy island living. Our single-story 1440 Sq.Ft. home is 30 feet from the ocean's edge on a seawall and 150 yards from sandy beaches. The unique closeness to the ocean gives a dynamic connection and sound of the ocean's movement, which is both picturesque and exciting. From the open Living Room, Dining Room and Kitchen a wall of floor to ceiling windows so close to the ocean will fill your senses with the wonder and beauty of nature. The incredible ever-changing ocean views of turtles swimming right in front of you while you relax in the yard or patio, whales in winter, lovely occasional rainbows and beautiful sunsets let you know you are truly in a special place.

Because we consider the 10' seawall a potential danger for young children, we recommend only infants under 9 months and children over 5. Please keep in mind that since we are so close to the ocean that there are times when the water hits the seawall and some spray occasionally getting to the house. It can be exciting or daunting depending on your point of view. We ourselves love the intimacy with the ocean.

If you are looking for a small picturesque enclave in a secluded area away from Honolulu, this is it

Our favorite house on the island

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have rented 9 houses on the island over the years. This is by far our favorite. In fact it is our third time staying here. We would stay here all the time but it's far from where our daughter lives. Even so we come back here because it is such a beautiful home at a great location! If you are lucky enough to find available dates you will not be sorry if you book. I can't tell you enough how clean and comfortable and well maintained this property is!! We will return here for every visit. Thank you Richard and Tiana for everything!!

Great property, great location, "real Oahu"

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time near the northwestern tip of Oahu. The area is convenient to everywhere on the island by vehicle (45 mins to 1 hr), with a relaxing drive through the agricultural part of the island, hitting only a little traffic on the way to Honolulu or elsewhere SW/SE. The ocean out the back door, beaches just down the road, mountains on the other side of the street, seeing sunrise/sunsets both from your backyard --it all made for an amazing stay.

The property was in great shape, clean, as listed, and was plenty of room for our party of six. It was warm inside after coming back in the afternoons, but as soon as the oceanside doors were open, the house was instantly cool again. The kids even got a little cold at night, so heat isn't a problem, although the humidity takes a few days to get used to.

Plenty of extra amenities made the trip easier: beach towels, boogie boards, cooler--these definitely came in handy. Kitchen was well-stocked (even a blender for smoothies/milkshakes when we weren't eating shave ice). Large DVD selection if you want to spend time indoors (this is Hawaii). The kids would have liked a backyard beach, but still amazing views. Front fence helped with privacy and car noise from semi-busy road. Area felt safe with two kids camps nearby.

Great hikes 2 & 3 miles away, quickly rising to amazing ocean views in the mountainous state park across the road and a 2.5 mi hike that gives amazing sunrise views from the absolute northwest tip of the island. Each of these trailheads is accessible by car in 5 mins--some of the premier hikes on the island. For hang-gliding or sky-diving, the airfield across the street is where many go on the island for this--staying here avoids the hour drive from Waikiki. The North Shore was 30 minutes away, Waikiki 50 mins with traffic, Turtle Bay (snorkeling), Turtle Beach (sea turtles) 25-30 mins away on the north shore. Oceanfront horseback riding & polo 1/2 mile south. Beautiful ocean sunsets anywhere along the road 1-3 miles north to the tip if you aren't satisfied with the one out your back door.

Plan ahead for groceries: 22 mins to Foodland, but Costco right off H2N is 30 mins away (cheapest gas in Oahu). For those seeking the "real local" experience, with activities that won't be packed with busloads of tourists getting dumped off with you, this is the place to stay to hit those remote stops.

We'd stay here again when we're in Oahu, and recommend others stay here.

Peaceful Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our 35th anniversary on Oahu and stayed in this lovely home for a week. The home had everything we needed for our stay. We sat out on the back deck every evening enjoying the sight and sound of the ocean. This home is highly recommended if you want to stay away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. The laid back atmosphere of the north shore was just what we needed. If we should ever make it back to Oahu, this is where we will stay.

Amazing. Relaxation. Ocean Front.

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a rental on the North Shore area, look no further. By far the best vacation rental we have booked on Home Away. The house is clean, location is excellent close to Haleiwa town, Sharks Cove, hiking, beaches and best of all right on the ocean. We had the sliding doors open every time we are at the house from the moment we woke up. We got to bbq and cook breakfast every morning as we eat and enjoying the view along side the amazing sound of waves. We also saw sea turtles and manta rays. You will not be disappointed with your decision to rent this house.

The house has all your cooking needs and a bbq grill.

2 bedroom with comfort beds.

TV in every bedroom and living room.

Ceiling fans in every room, except kitchen.

Bathroom is equipped with towels.

House provided beach towels.

House has washer and dryers.

View. Ocean. View. Ocean.

This was a beautiful place to stay, easy access, and a wonderful house with all amenities.

  • 5 of 5

This is truly paradise. The house and yards are very well kept, the kitched well stocked, and plenty of space in each room. We especially enjoyed the skydivers floating over to kand at the airfield across the street. The sea wall back yard with crashing waves and occasional visiting turtles was unbelievable. This place is awesome.

Come stay where people come to get away from the crowds and relax in our Hawaiian style cottage. Only 9 minutes to the historic town of Hale'iwa (site for 'Baywatch')with unique art, shopping and restaurants and 15 minutes to Waimea Bay and Botanical Gardens.

The famous North Shore surf breaks are within a 15 minute drive, including Pipeline and Sunset Beach. You can fish right off the seawall. There is a wide variety of excellent restaurants and great water sport activities right here.

For the golfers, Turtle Bay Golf and Tennis Resort is just a 30 minute drive, and Kahuku Golf just 40.

There are no hotels in Mokuleia and almost empty white sand beaches go for miles in both directions. It is also a site for the TV Series 'Lost'. Sky Diving and Glider Rides are offered just down the street and kite-surfers will entertain you with their antics on the waves to the West at Mokuleia Beach Park.

Other Activities: Shopping, Kayaking, Boating, Shelling, Wildlife Viewing, Sky-diving, Glider Rides
