Overview

North Shore Oahu House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bdrms 2 bth, sleeps 6-8

This is an older, "beach-worn" home but the interior was recently renovated (September 2012). It is clean and has everything you need. This property is on a gorgeous white sand beach, ideal for swimming, sunbathing, snorkeling, boogie boarding, etc. It is a great beach for kids because it's protected from the large winter swells by the outer reef. The swimming area is sandy and not full of coral rock like many other nearby places. This is true hawaii at it's best, the way it was in the past with natural foliage, clean, clear water, and incredible weather. This is a home away from the noisy hustle of Waikiki and Honolulu. Two grocery stores nearby (1/2 mile and 2 miles away), and the Turtle Bay Resort is 10 minutes down the road for spas, restaurants, golf, etc. The home has a tropical style outdoor shower enclosed by bamboo. There is a small private garage apartment with its own entrance on the side of the house where the caretaker lives. There is no entrance to the home through this room. The caretaker will not disturb you. Please respect the noise policy of 10:00pm. Events are up to the discretion of the owner and must be small, and a separate event fee is charged. Please let us know if you are planning an event, and let us know if you have any questions. The owner is the managing agent, not some third party working only for commissions. WE NEVER REQUEST THAT YOU WIRE FUNDS.

Aloha,

Jimmy

About James Davis

Love living in Hawaii, enjoying the scenery and the outdoor lifestyle.

James Davis purchased this house in 2007

Why James Davis chose North Shore Oahu

Quiet, Rural Laie, on Oahu's north shore is one of the most beautiful locations in the world. Escape from the crowds of Honolulu and Waikiki and bask in the sun on our white sand beach, or cross the street and hike along a stream to a waterfall deep in the rainforest.

What makes this house unique

You are beachfront at a great price for an entire home! Walk out the door and across the yard and you're on the beach!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to let you know we had a wonderful time at your property and couldn't have hoped for anything better. (Well besides better weather the 1st couple days)

Charming beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing time here!!! It's a little small and worn, but it is part of its charm. We had 10 adults and 3 children, so it was a tight fit. Although we were granted access to the separate bedroom, everyone wanted to be in the main house, so we made do. But the extra refrigerator space in the extra room came in handy. It has a big yard and the beach is amazing; not crowded at all since the beach ends one house over! The caregiver, Dusty, was very courteous and attentive to our needs. And lots of parking for your guests! If you're looking for an upscale house, this is not the right house for you. But we were looking for a long relaxing weekend to spend with long-time friends, and it was perfect!!!

Amazing staycation!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay of 3 nights 4 days (4/7 - 4/10/16) found the beach home Clean, and spacious, with no complaints at all. Family of six adults never felt crowded. Dusty the caregiver couldn't of been nicer or more helpful (even when I locked us out) ... thanks again! The yard is large enough to have a huge party, the parking area had plenty of room. Although house is close to the road the house was quiet. The beach is beautiful!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Our family hired this house for us as my partner is from Oahu. We held our wedding reception on the back lawn and the house was perfect for us to stay in four days leading up to the wedding. We loved the beach access probably what made this house so special. We swan amongst families of turtles and relaxed all the way up to our wedding. We held the ceremony leading down to the beach and the guests sat amongst the trees. It was the best day with our family and friends and we loved every minute of our stay. Will be back next time as this part of Oahu holds a special place in our heart.

More ideal for very casual beach living than wedding guests

  • 3 of 5

This rental is affiliated with a gorgeous wedding house just 2 doors down. As wedding guests it was convenient for us to be in such close proximity to that house so it was easier for us to accept the fact that our beach house was more suited to a group of low maintenance guys where a week of fun wouldn't show on the wear and tear of the house. Thankfully the house was clean and it did not smell bad. However, the interior appeared much more shabby and worn than the posted pictures. We missed not having a deck or even a usable picnic table; there were only warts at the front and back exits. There was one unsightly rusted out barbeque that looked like a liability ready to happen... so no barbeque. It was surprising to us that the owners/ managers would not take 15 minutes to tidy up the grounds and dispose of the picnic table whose seat was literally split in half and the litter of left behind picnic towels and flip flops.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Walking out to the beach in the mornings was fantastic. Groceries less than a miles away, and breakfast at Papa Oles was great (thanks for the recommendation, Dusty!). That wasn't the only suggestion we took Dusty up on, he was great and very friendly.

We would definitely come back to this house. We are looking forward to our next Hawaii vacation. Thanks again.
