Oahu: Haleiwa<< Back To Maui
No Properties Listed
Located on Oahu’s north west shore about an hour from Waikiki, Haleiwa is a small beach community known as the surfing capitol of the world. While there are plenty of attractions nearby, guests staying at a Haleiwa luxury vacation rental property will be most impressed by the skilled surfers from around the world who come here to ride the incredible waves of Oahu’s north shore.
Things to Do
The outdoors take center stage around our Haleiwa vacation rental properties and guests will enjoy hiking or biking on some of Oahu’s best trails. You can explore the lush Waimea Valley by horseback and while you’re there, why not take a refreshing dip in the water at the base of Waimea Falls? Families with children will love the nearby Dole Plantation. Ride the Pineapple Express for an educational look at the history of the plantation and learn how pineapples drove the economy in Hawaii’s early days. Golfers can get a game in at the Turtle Bay resort or one of Oahu’s 40 other courses. Adventure seekers may want to try their hand at Skydiving offered at the nearby Dilligham Airfield. Those who are brave enough can get up close and personal with some of the ocean’s most feared creatures with Haleiwa’s famous shark cage dives. Since Hawaii is the birthplace of surfing it’s no surprise that you’ll find a museum dedicated to the sport here on the north shore. A visit to the small Haleiwa Surf Museum provides a unique look at the history of the sport, and houses an impressive collection of boards dating back to the early 1900’s. Located in nearby Laie, The Polynesian Cultural Center is another popular tourist attraction. A museum, theme park and entertaining dinner show all rolled in to one, the park is separated in to seven unique villages representing Hawaii’s early Polynesian tribes.
Guests staying in a luxury vacation rental home in Haleiwa will likely be spending a fair chunk of their time in Hawaii on one of the area’s beautiful beaches. Haleiwa Beach Park is popular picnic area with tables throughout the grounds. The water here is rocky so it isn’t the best option for swimming, but the surf break makes it a great spot for learning to surf. Another area favorite is Laniakea, which is also known as Turtle Beach. Our famous green sea turtles have chosen this particular beach as their stomping ground and can often be seen basking in the sun along the shoreline. Because the draw of the turtles can make this beach crowded, we recommend you get there early.
Restaurants and Nightlife
There are several dining options in the area around our Haleiwa vacation rentals with cuisine ranging from Asian-fusion to Mexican. Cafe Haleiwa is a great breakfast spot, and Matsumoto Shave ice serves up one of Hawaii’s best loved treats! For drinks and casual pub faire, visit Breakers Sports Bar. If you enjoy music, the Banzai Sushi Bar has live musicians on Saturday nights.
The North Shore Marketplace has a good mix of unique shops and traditional retailers, and Haleiwa Town offers shoppers an eclectic mix of charming boutiques, galleries, and restaurants. Guests staying in one of Haleiwa’s luxury vacation rental properties will also enjoy the scenic one hour drive in to Honolulu to shop at the famous 300 store Ala Moana Center.
Weather and Ocean Conditions
Our Haleiwa luxury vacation rentals are located on Oahu’s north west shore which is considered the windward side of the island. This area can be cooler in the mornings during the winter, but temperatures warm up as the day progresses. The temperature doesn’t vary too much between peak summer and winter, and both seasons are warm with the average temperature ranging from 75F – 85 F. Thanks to our gentle trade winds though, the climate is comfortable year-round. The north shore experiences some of the biggest waves in Hawaii so the surf is always powerful. Ocean swells are influenced by weather and wind so conditions can change from day to day. It’s important to take precautions and read the safety signs posted on our beaches as these are there for your protection.
