About the property

One-bedroom Apartment With Large Deck And Patio.

State of Hawaii Transit Accommodation Tax Registration:


Our house is located on the north shore of Oahu, less than two miles west of Sunset Beach, the world famous surfing beach, and about one and a half miles west of Backyards (Velzyland), which is an equally well-known windsurfing site. A lesser known and uncrowded surfing area is offshore from our property. We are directly on the ocean, with year-round sunsets, and whales passing by during the winter months. The house sits on a flat, rocky reef, with sandy beaches a very short walking distance to the left and to the right. An offshore reef protects us from the pounding waves, and provides safe swimming and snorkeling. Honolulu is a one-hour drive away, but we are also directly on the bus line.

The vacation unit is in a separate wing of the main house and has its own private entrance. It shares a large deck and a large patio, both overlooking the water, with tables, lounge chairs, and a small charcoal barbecue. The living room faces the ocean, includes a 32-inch flat screen TV, and has a small dining area off to the side. The small but complete kitchen contains all necessary dishes and utensils. The bedroom is located on the mountain side of the house, and the bathroom (with sink, tub and shower) is directly off the bedroom. We also have a washing machine and dryer available for guest use. As with many other ocean front homes on the north shore, we are located on the around-island highway, so there is some vehicle noise at certain times. It is normally not heard on the deck or patio.

We require a five night minimum stay.

Great spot on the north shore

  • 5 of 5

This was my fifth time to the North Shore - Wonderful place for two people, right on the water, walk about 100yds in either direction and you have your own private beach! Great surfing right out your door as well! Richard and Ann were great host! Only thing we never figured out was how to turn on the overhead fan in the bedroom but it didn’t matter considering there was a window unit in the room as well as two tower fans in the apartment, we will be back! Thanks again!

A wonderful retreat on the North Shore.

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful five days. There aren’t many places you can be so close to the sea and experience the amazing sounds and sights.

Richard and Ann were very helpful.

Some things were dated, and we did have traffic noise, but neither were an issue for my wife and I. These were reflected in the price which was half what a very up to date apt would be without the traffic.

Thanks Ann and Richard for a great stay.

Excellent location, excellent hosts

  • 5 of 5

The property had a view to die for. You couldn't ask for a more beautiful view or a location that allowed you to enjoy North Shore as much. I am so glad we chose to stay here. Best time ever with wonderful hosts who helped out anytime we needed something.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

Easy to access, beautiful view and great for simple island living for a week. Close to running trails, roadside fruit stand and turtle bay resort. Bring earplugs if you are a light sleeper due to road noise. It didn't bother me but I am an early riser and heavy sleeper.

great ocean front view

  • 4 of 5

Had a very nice 5 nights in this fully equiped rental. The owners were wonderful & the unit was exactly as advertised. The location to all the North Shore beaches was perfect & the ocean front location was the highlight of the days & nights.
