The home is nestled between the beach and the Mokuleia forest in Waialua. It is tucked away quietly off the road, in a friendly beach side neighborhood. The private walk way leading to the entrance is lined with plants as well as the whole property being surrounded by beautiful foliage. The home has an open and spacious living and dining area, which is perfect for family gatherings. The decor has an old Hawaiian charm, with raton furnishings and tropical fabrics, it is comfortable and casual. The home has all the amenities a family would need while on holiday. It has a fully stocked kitchen along with coffee maker, microwave oven and a large refrigerator. Enjoy your meals at the large dining table or go downstairs for an Al fresco meal at the large patio table. The Honu Hale has plenty of natural light and catches a good trade wind breeze when the windows are open. All three bedrooms have a/c units if you prefer instead. The living room has a large flat screen tv with cable and there is free high-speed WiFi to help you stay connected. All three bedrooms have new linens and comfortable mattresses(2 queen size, 1 full size). The master and one of the guest rooms both have flat screen TVs with cable. The two bathrooms are clean and well stocked with fresh white towels. The Honu Hale has it's own assigned, covered parking. Just a flight of stairs away from the front door, a big plus when loading your beach gear! This hideaway gem also has access to a full size washer and dryer downstairs. You can pack light and save room in your luggage for souvenirs! Complete access to the beach gear room, which hosts snorkel gear and other beach accessories(located at the far left with the #1 on the gate). Bicycles parked in the carport are also for renters use. A baby crib may be provided upon request. The Honu Hale is next to a quaint 1/1 vacation rental. Check out property number 479843 if you find yourself needing a separate place for family or friends.
From the Honu Hale, it is a very short walk to a quiet local beach park. Aweoweo Beach park has a lot to offer. It has restrooms, outdoor showers and a playground. So much and so close! Don't be surprised if you find that you have the beach all to yourself during certain times of the day. The beach also houses a nest of sea turtles that you can see better up close while snorkeling. This beach is a great place for swimming year around due to the coral barrier. This beach is a safe and a beautiful place for a romantic late night stroll. When you are ready to go to town, Haleiwa is just a quick 5 minute drive. This historic town is lined with quaint shops, restaurants, and art galleries. The town also has a handful of food trucks that offer plenty of good eats with local flavor. A little farther up the road is the famous North Shore. In the winter months you will see the awesome crashing waves, known as the seven mile miracle of surfing!!
The Honu Hale is in a wonderful location. It puts you in the middle of it all yet lets you feel as though you are away from it all. Come and relax in it's old Hawaiian charm.
We enjoyed our stay at the home and have provided the listing information to my fellow employees as a rental for the Oahu area. I passed the information on for both business and pleasure.
Brienne was excellent to deal with. Very responsive and helpful. Would stay there again with no hesitation.
Loved the location (away from busy Honolulu!). Nice quiet town. If you are looking for a comfortable place to spend your evenings in between day time adventures, this may be the perfect fit.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Dillingham Ranch property. It was clean, comfortable and very close to the water and only a few miles from town. I would highly recommend this property!
We needed a place on the north shore for 6 people and this worked out perfectly. The property is as described in the listing. It was very clean. Check in and out was very simple. Close to the beach and other north shore attractions.
We really enjoyed staying at this house. It was well stocked with the essentials including the kitchen. We liked the location to the beach, and enjoyed the BBQ several nights. Neighborhood is generally quiet. Beds were comfortable. Plenty of towels, although we did use the laundry facilities to stay caught up. :) We really enjoyed the nearby town of Halewia. Cute stores and great shaved ice. Highly recommend the paddle board rental by the bridge. Great fun, reasonably priced and free shaved ice! Our adult kids loved the coffee shop and the local food trucks. Definitely shop for groceries at Malama Market. Of course we made a Costco run the first day. :) Also enjoyed the Farmers Markets, Ted's Bakery, Sunset Beach, Weimeia Beach and the Farmers market on Thursday's, and the Big Wave shrimp truck. My only wish in reference to the house, is that the air conditioners in the back bedrooms weren't quite so loud, and there was A/C in the main living area. And the ceiling fan in the living room worked without the ceiling light needing to be on. Lastly, the white cutting board in the cupboard should not be used as it's desinegrating. And foil and Saran Wrap would have been lovely. :)
I would definitely recommend this house and Briann was available when needed and did a great job communicating throughout the whole process! Really 4.5 stars!
The house was very clean and well prepared for us. There were helpful pamplets on the coffee table that were helpful to read. There was chairs and snorkels and all kinds of stuff to help us get the most of out stay. We just didn't find the beach by us as soon as we should of. it always seems rough and choppy but going west a little and getting out in it when the tide was low was fantastic. we snorkeled and seen fish and turtles and it was great. Walking on the beach in the mornings was gorgeous. We really had fun and enjoyed everything. We just wished we had a couple of more days to enjoy. Hopefully next time!
Waialua is full of activities. Skydiving, snorkeling, surfing, swimming, hiking/walking, and even beach side polo matches. Kaena point albatross refuge and monk seal viewing is a highlight. Sunset catamaran rides or if in season the whale watching tour is amazing. There is something for everyone on the north shore.
