Honu Hale I - 3BR, 2 Bathroom, sleeps 10 Vacation Rental Mokuleia, Hawaii USA

Why stay in a rental when you can vacation like an owner in this authentic Hawaiian cottage with model furnishings? Experience all the tropical wonders of the North Shore; swim with the turtles, fish, snorkel, kayak, and surf. And if you are brave enough, skydive in your backyard!

Fall asleep to the soothing sound of the waves. Melt into world-class beds and comfortable amenities.

Honu Hale is an authentic Hawaiian beach/oceanfront single story vacation home on the North Shore of Oahu, next to the waters edge.

If you are looking to spend your Hawaiian vacation in a small picturesque town in a secluded area, only 35 minutes from Honolulu, this is the place for you! It has a variety of excellent restaurants and it is a great place for all water-sports, including snorkeling, scuba diving, surfing, windsurfing, and kayaking.

Other favorite activities include walking on the beach, fishing, skydiving, horseback riding, tennis, golfing, biking, and hiking the nearby end of the North Shore Road.

Honu Hale is named after the numerous sea turtles that play in our waters. You can enjoy your dinner in the large backyard as the sunsets dazzle you and the cool ocean breezes gently caress you. Isn't this what a tropical paradise is supposed to be?

Honu Hale is situated on the ocean, with unobstructed ocean views and an unbeatably quiet and private location.

Come stay where the people of Oahu come to get away from the crowds. Mokuleia is on Oahu's North Shore, but is a secret to most. It is just 35 minutes from Honolulu, seven minutes from the town of Haleiwa, and 15 minutes from Hawaii's famous Waimea Bay and Pipeline.

There are no hotels in Mokuleia, and we have empty white sand beaches for miles and miles. This is the Hawaii you dreamed of and thought you could only find on the Outer Islands.

A great horseback riding and equestrian center is just across the street.

Enjoy the sunset every day in your backyard from the bubbling Jacuzzi or on the rooftop deck.

Our backyard is your beach - an amazingly beautiful and peaceful setting of nearly private uncrowded beaches. Mokule`ia provides some of Oahu's best and least crowded surfing. Most of our guests enjoy staying close to home and enjoying the ultimate Hawaiian Paradise. Within a 10 minute drive are fine restaurants, quaint shops, a marina for fishing and sightseeing, and North Shore's world famous surfing.

Just a short drive from the nearly private beaches and sets of both popular TV series Lost and Baywatch (Haleiwa). Honu Hale’s location is also a great home base if you are interested in sightseeing. Conveniently located 10 minutes from the H2 Hwy, you can get across the island within 20 minutes.

No events, parties, or weddings allowed.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I have lived in Hawaii for five years now, but this has definitely been one of the most enjoyable experiences I’ve had on the island.



The house is a little out of the way from the busy surf scene in Haleiwa, adding to its appeal for me. I live in downtown Honolulu, so getting a reprieve from the city traffic was greatly appreciated. I never get tired of looking out to the ocean and seeing so many stars. I loved unwinding in the hot tub and basking in the stars and full moon.



I definitely recommend any local cuisine. The shrimp trucks are great and there’s a ton of delicious hole-in-the-wall spots in Haleiwa.



For a great time, I highly recommend visiting Pearl Harbor around noon/lunchtime for a minimal wait time. The Polynesian Cultural Center is an excellent way to spend a day. It’s interactive and fun, teaching you a ton about Polynesian Islands. Plus if you do the luau, you won’t be disappointed. They’ve got firedancers, lots of hula, and the food is FANTASTIC! It’s one of the best local food luau’s on the island. Diamond Head and La’ie are great places to hike. Take lots of water and wear good shoes.



Most of all I encourage you to enjoy the house itself. A huge part of Hawaiian lifestyle is just hanging loose and relaxing. This house is your opportunity to get away from things for a while… enjoy it. Don’t underestimate hanging out at the house, soaking up some sun, and taking a dip in the ocean.



PS. Say hello to the turtles for us! Watching the whales was awesome!

Where's the Beach?

Where's the Beach?
  • 3 of 5
I chose this home for our family reunion largely due to the pictures on the website, which showed a nice beach out in front. When we go to Hawaii, we like to go for long walks along the shore. Well, when we got there it was pretty obvious that some of the pictures are quite old as there hasn't been a beach in front of this place for years. Initially we were able to walk through the neighborhood a little way to a public beach access trail. That is until the public works department closed off this access a couple of days after we arrived. So at that point we had to walk about a mile along the busy highway or get in the car and drive to get public access to the beach. So I would not call this place beachfront at all.

After saying all of this, the house is definitely oceanfront! We pulled the chaise lounges close to the sea wall and just enjoyed the sun and ocean breezes. We enjoyed watching the sky divers who were jumping just about all day. The house itself is clean and well stocked with just about everything you might need. The Jacuzzi was clean and worked well. There is a BBQ grill but it uses charcoal so you need to pick up a bag at the grocery store. The washer and dryer were great and well used by the family. The house is tastefully decorated and very comfortable. We enjoyed eating our meals out on the lanai every morning and evening. Sunsets were beautiful!

While we were there, the neighbor next door was having some work done on their sea wall. We were contacted by the Management company who offered to refund half a day's rental fees due to this activity. I was quite impressed that they wanted to make sure our stay was as nice as possible, even with the cement trucks and activity next door.

Would I recommend this place to a friend? That would sort of depend on what they were looking to do while on vacation. Walks along the beach definitely take some work. This is a perfect spot to sit in the sun and enjoying the ocean. The kitchen, though well equipped, could use some updating. All in all it was a good stay but I am not sure if I would recommend this particular house to my friends who want to visit the North Shore of Oahu.

Great "Home Base"

Great "Home Base"
  • 3 of 5
One of the primary reasons for selecting this home was because one of the listed amenities (http://onthebeachhawaii.com/property_1.cfm) is that the property is beachfront. The first thing we noticed the day of arrival is there is a sea wall with the ocean on the other side - no beach. It was obvious to this Florida girl that there hasn't been a beach at this location for many years. Other than this the home was as advertised, it was clean, well stocked, and in a nice quiet location. We loved being there as our "home base" during our stay.

The only other real issue we had was as Hurricane Ana was baring down on the Islands we had no communication with the property manager, we reached out but got no response until after the hurricane passed. Luckily being from Florida we have experience preparing for a hurricane, but we were in an unfamiliar place and could have used some assistance with things like flashlights, batteries, etc.

The two issues above would not prevent me from recommending this property and we would stay there again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback. We appreciate hearing about our guests’ experiences and how we could have made their stay more enjoyable. We are so glad that you enjoyed our Honu Hale I! I am so sorry for the most unfortunate weather during your stay. It is difficult to predict when the sand moves from behind the home. Although most guests will enjoy a wet sandy beach directly behind our Honu Hale homes, we cannot guarantee the condition of the ocean and beach because it changes with the surf and storms. We appreciate you bringing this information to our attention. We make every effort to be sure that we maintain our properties constantly so that every detail meets our guests’ expectations and we have carefully investigated and attended to the information that you brought to our attention.

We sincerely apologize that you had difficulty reaching your caretaker during your stay. This is extremely uncharacteristic as our caretaker always provides exceptional service to all of our guests. It is rare to receive the personalized and quality service that our caretakers provide to our guests. Our guests satisfaction is our highest priority. For future stays you can also contact our property management company in the rare event that you cannot reach your caretaker. They are available 7 days a week. The safety of our guests is also very important to us and all of our homes are equipped with safety flashlights, extra batteries, and corded telephones which are stored in the kitchen cabinets. Additionally, the island has an emergency evacuation horn system that you would hear in the event that an evacuation would be required. We will make sure to improve the communication to guests regarding where the safety items are located by detailing the location in the reference book that is left on the counter of our vacation homes. Thank you again for your feedback! We are so pleased that you chose to make our Honu Hale I your home away from home and we look forward to having you as our guest again in the future!

Perfect Place to enjoy Oahu!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Honu Hale 1 for a week. There were 6 people total and plenty of space for all of us. Getting to the house was a breeze using the map provided. Our flight arrived at 2pm, we picked up our rental cars, stopped by Costco for groceries and were settled in by 4:30. The house if fully equipped with things that are easy to forget like bug spray etc...The house also had lots of gear to make the most out of beach time like chairs, umbrellas, snorkel equiptment, water shoes etc... Also lots of towels and a washer/dryer which came in handy for packing clean clothes when we were leaving. The caretaker is super helpful and quick to respond to any questions we had during our stay. The only minor issue we encountered had nothing to do with the house itself but the neighbor to the east. She complained about our noise level on the first night even though we were sleeping by 9:30 so we were contientious of not being too loud after that. Lots of great things to do in the area. We loved exploring Halewia and really enjoyed Waimea falls as well as the Dole plantation. If you're a thrillseeker you can skydive across the street at the airfield, a few in our group made the jump from 14,000 feet and the observation deck above the lanai gave a front row view to our friends. We will definitely be back next time we visit Oahu!

We loved this place. Far exceeded our expectations. If you are looking for a place close to the tourist action, this isn't it. Looking for a quiet place to enjoy the sea. You've found it. Clean, comfortable with everything you would need for a nice vacation. Great service.
