Overview

About the property

Beautiful ocean views surround you in these charming beachfront cottages

Beautiful ocean views surround you in this romantic cottage on a secluded, white, sandy beach. Relax in comfort on your lanai (patio) and listen to the waves gently breaking on a distant reef. Sunrises and moonrises on the ocean's horizon will surprise and amaze you. This cozy 500 sq. ft. beachfront cottages has a spacious feeling, fully equipped kitchens, washers and dryers, Flat-screen TVs, and lots of beach toys and equipment. Parking and wifi are included.

Swimming, relaxing on the lanai, BBQs and walking on the beach and are my favorite things to do here; but there are great tourist attractions nearby to enjoy too. The Polynesian Cultural Center is 5 miles north, the Turtle Bay Resort is 10 miles north, followed by 7 miles of the world's most famous surfing beaches and the historic surfing town of Haleiwa. Pack lightly, all you will need are a few clothes, your favorite food and drink items and you won't want to leave once you get here! (Each cottage is a 4-plex building and you are only renting one of the ground-floor units in the 4-plex)

About Karon Hansen

City life in Honolulu can be hectic, so I retreat to this cottage in the country for fun and relaxation. I live and work in Honolulu, but originally came from California, then lived on Kauai and Maui, before finally moving to Oahu. I love island living, and when traveling, I like to visit other islands. I'm a teacher, like to travel during vacations, and would be willing to trade time in my vacation cottage, in exchange for time in your vacation home, depending on the destination.

Karon Hansen purchased this condo in 1990

Why Karon Hansen chose North Shore Oahu

I've been coming to this beachfront location for 20+ years, and stay here often to relax and enjoy the beach. I fell in love with these cottages the moment I saw them because they are only 45 minutes from Honolulu; in a quiet, tropical setting and on a wonderful, safe beach for children. Since then, this place has become my 'secret getaway' with its semi-secluded location, white sandy beach, and warm tropical waters. Many wedding proposals, and small intimate wedding take place at this location. The homeowners and guests are friendly and many homeowners have owned their apartments for many happy years. The location is truly a secret spot, and you'll feel like time stops when you're here.

What makes this condo unique

If you have a busy life and want to get back to basics and nature, with modern amenities, but without the hassles of camping--this is the place. If you want to experience a stress-free island lifestyle--this is the place. If you've always dreamed of living on your own beach--this is the place. If you want the benefits of a big metropolitan city and live in the country at the same time--this is the place. Everything has been well thought out for your enjoyment--you'll have an outdoor beach shower, beach chairs and towels, BBQ, boogie boards, snorkeling equipment, and peace of mind.

Perfect Paradise getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for an entire week with my family and loved every minute. It is exactly as Karon describes, beach front, cosy cottage and so affordable! I went with my family, two boys ages 8 and 11. We had a blast exploring the beach just outside our place. It was also conveniently located to get to the North Shore quickly and to Hanauma Bay and Pearl Harbor. The kitchen was well stocked, the beds were comfortable and the ocean view was just perfect. Karon was easy to reach and quick to get back with any questions I had. The wifi was no problem to log-on to (although I really wanted to be as unplugged as possible). I am recommending this place to all my friends and family for sure. I am already counting the days until I get to return!

Best place on the Island.....

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a nice quiet and relaxing place to stay this is it. Oahu is very beautiful but this side of the island is the best. No worrying about crowds, parking spaces, resort fees or even internet fees. This is the place!!! It's very peaceful and safe. My family enjoyed our week at the cottage and would go back in a heartbeat. The owner is very kind and great to work with. We are very grateful that she shared her vacation home with us. Don't hesitate to book this cottage you won't be disappointed.

Very charming, very nice.

  • 5 of 5

I think the WiFi info was not correct. Not worked as per instructions. And they differed per owner email and from Home Away.Get a kcup machine, include alot of bottled water. Fresh Flowers on table.It met our needs for a honeymoon and despite being dated all said did not detract from our stay. Would stay again here,absolutely. Beautiful view, semi private beach,right outside the back. Really amazing. A lot for a little.

This place was amazing and laid back from all the tourist.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I really enjoyed staying in our cottage on the North Shore! It was very quite and relaxing away from all the tourist. Right on the beach too which was an awesome view and it was like a private beach to ourselves. We recommend this place to couples or even families.

Great location for families, couples, and retirees who want to relax and spend time on a semi-secluded beach. Best features are: relaxing atmosphere, lovely beach, beautiful sunrises and moon rises over the water, and romantic starry nights. Time seems to stop here and you get the feeling that you've gone back in time to what Hawaii must have been like 50 years ago, and one recent guest wrote that if they could go back in time, they would want to live here!' There are plenty of things to see and do, onsite and nearby, and you are only 10 miles away from world famous surfing beaches, two 1st class golf courses, and the historic town of Haleiwa.
