About the property

Cottage, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-2)

Nestled in a beautiful country neighborhood, Sunset Hale is an enchanting place to enjoy your vacation. Lush mountains rise above the acre that surrounds you. Farm animals add to the rural landscape. In this beautifully rustic setting it's hard to imagine that the world's most beautiful and pristine beaches are, literally, just down the road. WORLD-RENOWNED SUNSET BEACH IS A THREE MINUTE WALK. And more than 20 other world premier surfing spots are just minutes away, including Banzai Pipeline and Waimea Bay. Spectacular and magnificent beaches abound on the North Shore . . . all awaiting your exploration.

Our cottage was lovingly built in 2008. This stand alone bungalow was designed for island living with an open floor plan and high beamed ceiling. A large central skylight allows you to watch the stars at night while lying in the comfort of your California King sized bed. Smooth and cool lava rock covers the floors. Stunning 'island style' furnishings help you to know you have arrived in Hawaii. One of our local artists has graced our hale with exquisite polynesian style carvings. Furniture is either handcrafted or imported from Southeast Asia.

After a day in the sun you can rinse off in one of our two rain showers: Our INDOOR marble & lava oversized walk in shower, or our large, private OUTDOOR shower. Evenings can be spent lounging on our covered lanai, barbecuing and dining alfresco or relaxing inside with our 46 inch flat screen TV. If you desire a more active nightlife, Haleiwa town offers restaurants, bars and entertainment.

Fabulous eating options abound on the North Shore: A scenic 15 minute drive in either direction offers a sumptuous variety of local, international or resort cuisine. Locally grown fruit and vegetable stands are just down the road. Ted's Bakery is just around the corner (Chocolate Haupia Pies!). We also have a delightful grocery store, Foodland (complete with Starbucks), which is just 10 minutes away.

The tree-lined bike and walking path across the street makes the Saturday's Farmers Market a fun and easy walk or ride. Luscious tropical fruits, flowers and local artwork are plentiful. Historic Haleiwa town, an old whaling village, has become a shopper's paradise and restaurant-lovers delight. Yet it still maintains it's old town charm.

Every conceivable water activity is easily available to you here: Surfing, Sunbathing, Diving, Snorkeling, Tide Pools, Whale Watching, Fishing, Jet Skiing and more. Lessons are available for anyone with a desire to learn.

In addition to exploring our magnificent beaches, there are countless activities for the energetic visitor. There are fabulous hiking trails including the trail to Waimea Falls. Other must-sees for the active visitor are Waimea Botanical Gardens, Polynesian Cultural Center, Haleiwa Town, Turtle Bay Resort with it's Arnold Palmer designed golf course, ocean view spa and horseback riding.

The winter months bring added excitement when the waves swell to huge proportions and pro surfers from all over the world assemble to compete in the Triple Crown of Surfing. This is a fabulous spectator sport not to be missed if you are fortunate enough to visit during this time. You can always find sheltered beaches and smaller waves to enjoy the water if the huge ones 'aren't your thing'.

Quiet, comfortable, and great location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the hale for our honeymoon, and we could not have asked for a better experience. The hale had everything we needed from beach towels, beach chairs, and a washer and dryer, to personal care items, and q-tips! It was also very clean, the bed was super comfortable and there was every type of meal prep item needed for a great meal in. The hale was just a 3 minute walk, in my opinion, the best beach on the north shore. While we stayed here, there was a surfing competition, so that provided great entertainment while lounging on the beach. It is also just a few minutes from the food-truck park and the grocery store. All-in-all a great location!

We would recommend staying at the hale to anyone looking for a relaxing, quiet, beautiful vacation. We hope to make it back here in the near future!

Beautiful home on the North Shore

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing time during our stay at the Sunset Hale. It was beautifully furnished, cool, peaceful, quiet (besides the roosters and barking dogs, but that's to be expected - keep the country country!), and the perfect place for us to prepare for our wedding and to relax after the festivities. The beach was just few minutes walk down the road, and we enjoyed breakfast at the nearby Sunrise Shack.

Alia was communicative and kind, and we hope to stay here again in the future!

Clean comfortable and convenient

  • 5 of 5

A well presented clean hale in a very convenient location in walking distance to beautiful beaches. We stayed to see the pipeline masters and lucked it in to see local boy John John Florence win the world title at pipeline just a short 15-20 minute walk from the hale. The hale was very well provisioned with great attention to detail. All mod cons worked well and it sits in a lovely quiet location. There’s been mention of noisy roosters but we quite liked their sounds lending to a rural atmosphere. Only slight downside were the barking neighbours dogs. No fault of the hale owners but they were annoying. Very comfortable bed and lovely soft breezes from the adequate fans.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

Ideal place for a couple to enjoy the North Shore as it is supposed to be.

The Hale is very well appointed.

North Shore Bikes will deliver rental bikes to your door for the duration of your stay. It makes you feel like a local pedaling along the bike path to the grocery store.

We will be back!

A very comfortable stay with convenient location. Nice and private. Had trouble with tv reception, but we weren't in HI to watch TV anyway. Would definitely book again.

About The Owner

Aloha and welcome to the North Shore!

The Kennedy Family

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2005

Why The Owner chose Haleiwa

Our family loves the North Shore of Oahu! It is what Hawaii is all about . . . a magnificent tropical destination where you can immerse yourself in a warm culture, while experiencing a wide variety of island activities.

Our family has lived on the islands of Hawaii for over 20 years. We love the uniqueness of each island, but we are especially fond of Oahu's North Shore. Here we experience an older 'laid back' vibe that is reminiscent of 'Old Hawaii.' Because we are a family of surfers we feel fortunate to live on these beaches that are the 'best in the world.'

The North Shore offers so much to visitors and locals alike and we are delighted to share our Hale with you. Our manager, Alia Kennedy, is a fourth generation born island girl (woman). She will be happy to answer any questions or give you tips from her knowledge and experience of the North Shore as well as the whole island of Oahu.
