Aloha! Come be surrounded by sweet smelling flowers and fruit trees as you look over the big blue ocean and the rocky shore line of Shark's Cove and Waimea Point. Words nor pictures can adequately describe the breath-taking views of this estate.

The space

Breathtaking ocean views from this home are what make it truly unique. Being able to look out over the beautiful Pacific and see the whales and waves is SO rare! No noisy neighbors, no foot-traffic. The fragrant blossom of the plumeria tree welcomes you (look for the orchids spliced into the trees, it is unbelievable!) Banana, papaya, mango & lychee trees dot the property. You will never forget how beautiful Hawaii is nor the tranquility you feel here. Our Ohana (family) lives here half the year so we know ALL the ins, outs, do's and dont's of the North Shore! When you choose the Hale Kohola, you get a complete guide to help you get the absolute most out of your vacation and find gems that aren't in the guide books!

Guest access

There are 2 homes located on the estate. This listing is for the guest house, the Hale Kohola (whale house in Hawaiian). The entire estate is gated for extra privacy. This bluff-lot estate provides incredible views, awe-inspiring whale watching during whale season (December to April) and a consistent ocean breeze blowing through the house. The bedrooms do have air conditioning but it is not needed most of the year. We invite you to let the fresh air in, renew and relax!

Other things to note

Aloha! Come be surrounded by sweet smelling flowers and fruit trees as you look over the big blue ocean and the rocky shore line of Shark's Cove and Waimea Point. Words nor pictures can adequately describe the breath-taking views of this estate. Come see the difference between being beach front (where all you can see is sand) to being truly ocean front, with a bird's eye view of all the beauty of the North Shore. There is nothing like seeing the humpback whales swim and jump or watching the world famous Waimea bay waves roll in. Not to mention your personal sun set over the ocean each evening, you may even catch a green flash!

The house is newly renovated, brand new everything! A "beach house" in every sense of the word with cool colors, beachy decor and fresh flowers outside every window. It has 2 large bedrooms, a king size bed in one and a queen bed in the other. Both bedrooms have extra large closets with space for luggage and a Pack 'n Play crib in each. A side bedroom has a twin daybed and a twin size trundle bed which can be pulled out or kept closed. The living room is equipped with a queen size pull out sofa bed, a large flat screen television, a dvd player, and cable. There are 2 full bathrooms with a tub/shower combo in one and a nice stone shower over looking the garden in the other. Save some money by cooking for your party/family in the well-stocked kitchen. You can enjoy your meals in the dining room or outside on the lanai bar seating. Enjoy the lanai while cooking on the grill or relaxing on the couch & lounge chairs. With this view and lush property grounds, it is quite hard to stay inside. There is plenty of parking available.

The location is truly ideal for your North Shore vacation. We invite you to come share and experience the spirit of Aloha!

We expect our guests to treat our cottage as they would treat their own home and neighbors. It is a tradition here in hawaii to remove your shoes inside the house and if our guest can adopt this, that would be great to preserve our new floors. We want all of our guests to have an absolute amazing time in Hawaii but to do so in a respectful way. No large parties or noise as this is a quiet neighborhood and need to keep like this.

Pros: so close to the beach, grocery store, restaurants. Christa's place also had an amazing view. It worked great for our group to stay in. Cons: the layout is a little unusual, with pass through bedrooms and the kitchen being detached from the rooms. The fourth bed with the pull out couch does not have air conditioning.

So many great things to say about this Airbnb -- Christa and Cindy are so accommodating and helpful, the place is beautifully-furnished, very beachy and simple, yet had everything we needed (beach and bath towels, soaps, washer/dryer), the patio is so so relaxing to come back to and the ocean view is incredible! Cindy brought us fresh bananas and pineapple one day, and pointed out the best beaches literally just in front of the property. Make sure to pick and try some fruit from the lychee tree on the property! Thank you for an amazing stay! I want to come back already :)

Hale Kohola (whale house) was our home for 3 nights. We were travelling as a group of 8 (two families with small children). On the arrival day we have met the owner who was very kind and gave us few useful tips on the local areas and activities. We haven't met Christa in person, but was always ready and helpful with the replies. The house itself was very nice and clean, with big kitchen. Each room had it's own ac (bit loud especially at nights, but manageable). The floor plan of the house was bit unusual but we made it work. Car is definitely essential, but house is conveniently located with close proximity to all attractions and necessities (shops, restaurants, food trucks, beach etc.) We loved our stay in the North Shore and would definitely recommend it to everyone.

Great place to relax and get away. The views are amazing and indeed we saw many whales breaching from the patio. Perfect place for 6 people. Thanks!

We rented the home for 10 days and traveled all over the island. We looked forward to coming back to the house because it was so peaceful. We loved the amount of space and the ability to spread out a little. This was so much better than renting hotel rooms.

Born and raised on the North Shore of Oahu our family loves to surf and be close to the ocean. We have designed our condo to be modern and comfortable, with the ocean as the theme.
