- THE BEACH -
The spacious beachfront yard leads to stunning Laniakea Beach. Miles long, this beach is famous for the sea turtles that love to swim and sunbathe in the area. You will see incredible sunsets every evening, and the views also include Ka’ena Point, distant rainbows, and excellent stargazing at night. The beach is never crowded, so you will always have plenty of sand to yourself. A lifeguard stand is located two homes down the beach. The swimming is wonderful during late spring, summer and fall. Winter brings bigger waves to the island, and you are in close distance to the surf breaks Lani’s, Chuns, Holtons, Waimea, Sunset and Pipeline. Please note that during certain parts of the year you may need to access the beach by the beach access two doors down.

There are loads of excellent food trucks close by for everything from acai bowls to fish tacos, and there are multiple farmers markets for shopping. Formal dining options are located at nearby Turtle Bay Resort and within Haleiwa. The friendly town of Haleiwa is located just two miles down the road for grocery shopping, restaurants, galleries and boutiques. The nearest waterfall is two miles away at Waimea Rainforest.

Best beachfront property for surfers
We rented the Laniakea Beach House for one month. My kids did remote school from the house, and the WiFi was excellent. The house itself is nice and although it could use some upgrades, everything feels comfortable. It isn't huge, but it feels spacious with a nice sized living room and a big deck overlooking the ocean. The rooms are good sized with lots of bed space. The garage has been converted into a kids play room with a ping pong table and sofas. The kitchen has two big fridges and everything you need to cook. There is also a new gas bbq on the deck, which is perfect for grilling at sunset. We had a few simple maintenance issues and management responded immediately.
By far, the best part of this house is its location. It sits right in front of Laniakea Beach and the paddle out to surf is directly in front of the house. We surfed literally every day and had consistent 3-5 foot waves, with only a few days smaller and a few big days of surf. In addition, when the waves aren't too big, the snorkeling in front of the house is excellent. The local town of Haleiwa is 5 minutes away. It is a quaint beach town with all the amenities you need. Waimea Bay and Waimea Valley are only minutes away in the other direction and a must visit. Pupukea and Pipeline are 5-10 minutes away. Really this place is ideally situated.
I would definitely recommend it to anyone and everyone looking for a North Shore getaway.
Laniakea beach house
Fantastic home in a perfect location. This is our second time staying in this house and we love it. The location is perfect. Wake up in the morning and walk right out back to Lani's or Himalayas surf break. It's a short walk up or down the beach to some other less crowded breaks. For non-surfers the beach right out back is sandy and beautiful. There are regular turtle sightings which the wife and kids enjoyed. The hot tub is a nice feature and the garage with ping pong is great for the teenagers to hang out. House is well stocked. Owners are very responsive. I wish we could have stayed longer and hope to be back which I guess will depend on who buys it since it is listed for sale. Thanks for the much needed escape from reality.
Had a wonderful time with my family. There was 4 large bedrooms that fit a total of 6 adults and 3 children. Another whole family could have stayed with us! The playroom was an extra bonus. Kids played Skee-ball and pool during the wind down hours. Beautiful location right on the beach. Will definitely recommend this property to friends and would love to stay here again.
Location, Location, Location
Fabulous location - fabulous for the whole family. Spacious indoor and out. Some minor maintenance would make this a perfect holiday experience.
Kitchen tap broken, ice maker in fridge didn't work, and a few other minor details that were just a little frustrating - but overall a wonderful property.
Great location and fantastic view!
This location on north shore, Oahu, is the best! Not to many people, most people stay in the turtle bay 200-300 meters away. Perfect beach, stunning view! The house is nice, but you pay most for the beachfront view. One negative thing is no aircondition - only fan! The nearby village, Haleiwa, is really nice with good restaurants and beach shops. Beware of the massive traffic along the route 83! Drive out early or late!
This home has the BEST location on Laniakea Beach! The back deck overlooks the gorgeous ocean with white sand, swimming, surfing, snorkeling and Sea Turtles all day long. The sunsets off this deck were breathtaking and the back deck and yard area really become the living space for the perfect relaxing Hawaiian vacation. The home was nicely laid out for our group of 10 with plenty of beds and linens. We didn’t even use the additional detached apartment off the front. Location to the beautiful North shore sights is so convenient. Waimea Bay, Haleiwa Town ( which we loved) were a couple of favorites. The house everything we needed as far as linens, towels and the kitchen was well equipped. Some parts of the home are a little dated, like the bathrooms, however with people in and out of the surf all day it was fine. They were very responsive to some quick fixes we needed. The home doesn’t have AC and it was very warm our entire stay particularly in the ocean front rooms.
Delightful stay at great location
Great location and very comfortable and well kept accommodation. Lovely outlook over the beach and easy access. Rooms clean and well furnished. Facilities worked well. Lovely deck to watch the sunsets. Close to town and various amenities. Sufficient parking and straightforward access from main road.
Spacious beach home with perfect location
Lovely beach home with lots of space to accommodate our group of friends. The large deck was the perfect place for everyone to hang out & watch the beautiful sunsets. Hot tub was an added bonus.
Only thing was the floors & curtain areas were a bit dusty/dirty when we arrived. Not a huge deal since we spent most of our stay out on the beach.
Manager Response: Aloha for staying with us, Akamine Family! We are so glad you all enjoyed yourselves. We thank you for your feedback, and have scheduled a deep clean for the home. We hope to see you again for another staycation!
Couldn't ask for a better rental
This rental was the perfect place for our family - plenty of bedroom space, great outdoor deck and of course, great beachfront location!
Manager Response: Mahalo for staying with us again, Hackler Family! See you again soon.
Great Surf Vacation
We were 16 nights at the Laniakea Beachfront House during January-Fabruary 2019.
We had great vacation in a great house.
The location is perfect for surf end all other beach activities and the house is huge, comfortable and well maintained.
Hawaii beach home team were very very helpful and provide good customer service.
They were more than ready to help in any problem or answer to any question.
We will definitely come back to the house and recommend it to our friends.
Manager Response: Thank you so much for staying with us, Kaplon Family, you were such wonderful guests! We look forward to seeing you again.
Spacious home on a lovely beach
Spacious and comfortable house, the space worked well for a family reunion. We could watch surfers all day from the patio. It was a quick 8-minute drive into Haleiwa for shopping and restaurants. The property was clean and well-maintained. A service issue with hot water in one bathroom was responded to in a timely manner by the management maintenance staff.
Manager Response: Thank you so much for staying with us, you were all wonderful guests. We hope to see you again for the next McClung Family Reunion!
Awesome stay on the North Shore
Loved the location and the back deck where we just relaxed on the deck chairs and hammock. Jacuzzi was also a nice addition. Would recommend this to anyone looking for a place to stay. Very comfortable accommodation.
Manager Response: Thank you for staying with us, Hicks Family! You are correct, the back deck is perhaps the best part of the house. We are so glad you all enjoyed some quality time on it : )

Walshe Xmas Vacation
We had a most wonderful stay. The house and location was perfect for our family and helped to create memories that will last a life-time
HURLEY - PIPE MASTERS 2018
As always, amazing trip to the North Shore. Love the house at Laniakea. Hawaii Beach Homes is the best, greatly appreciated, thank you - Grant Morgan
Great Family Vacation
Everyone had a great time. We really enjoyed the location, 2 refrigerators (yea), the deck with all the outdoor furniture. Two of the wash machines worked and both dryers - much needed with so many (14) people. The hot tub is mis-wired, thankfully we had several electrical people with us to figure out how to make it work. All in all, a great vacation rental - also loved the hosing off area! The kitchen is well stocked with all kinds of cooking dishes and appliances, too.
A little slice of Paradise
We had a four night stay here with our extended families 13 people in total (3 couldn’t make it) and we were very comfortable, 16 people may have pushed it?
Otherwise the house and grounds were fantastic and we were mainly outside anyway. Turtles would swim up the beach every day and we had a beach as our backyard. We wished our stay was for another two nights. The staff were in contact with us to make sure we were comfortable and all is going well.
Family Stay at Lani’s — the best!
My family of 4 and my sister’s family of 4 all had an amazing stay here at the house. The beach front setup is second to none! Pretty much lived on the lanai and yard when not in the water enjoying the surf and turtles! Turtles Galaore!!! THE spot for turtles!! In fact the traffic stacks up at Lani’s just to check out the turtles. The house could use electrical work to the outlets. There were several around the house in key locations that did not work...other than that we had no other issues and loved our stay! You will not want to leave. :) Tip: load up on your beach rentals (surfboards, SUPs, diving gear, etc) in Haleiwa. Last thing, bring your bluetooth sound system... we did and kept the vibe flowing on the lanai the entire time. ENJOY
An excellent family vacation
I rented the the beach property for my family visiting fora family celebration.
Their stay went smoothly without any problems. Everyone was delighted
with the location and the facilities. They are planing to rent the place themselves next year.
We are a local family that wanted a get away, particularly to renew our wedding vows on our 40th anniversary. Of course when you book a reservation such as this, you only have pictures to go by so we were skeptical. To our pleasant surprise the home was just what we were looking for; it was clean, spacious and was everything we could have asked for our family. Everyone was comfortable and is already asking when we can go back. You will definitely see us again, hopefully soon!!
Great house, amazing views!
Wonderful house with gorgeous views. Description and pictures exceeded expectations. Plenty of space for our group of 10 (including kids: 1.5, 2.5, 3 and 8). Loved how everything was gated and private so that kids could run free and looks for lizards and geckos. Location is great and even though it's right off a busy road you could rarely hear cars. We travel often to Oahu and have stayed in many vacation rentals, you literally can't get any closer to the beach then this house. That being said, there wasn't really a beach while we were there, as all the sand had washed out and the stairs ended on rock/reef. It is something that only happens a couple times of year but does happen in August and people with small kids, older folks or people who are not comfortable with the ocean should be aware. However, this is NOT something that should be counted against this house! The island and ocean will do as they please. We are water folks and just carried the little ones off to the left or right to swim and lounge. On calm days we snorkeled out front and saw several turtles, fish and even an eel. Having two washers and dryers was key and the cleaning people did a great job and are very friendly (we ran into them on the way out). There is some very normal wear and tear on things, especially those touching the outside (screens, ease of opening windows, etc) but that is to be expected when you are this close to the ocean and not the least bit bothersome. It does get hot inside the afternoon because there is no AC but it wasn't a surprise since it states that in the description and opening up the doors and windows made it comfortable. Gotta love those trade winds! After bbqing every night we would stargaze. We had such a wonderful stay here and would highly recommend it.
Gorgeous Oceanfront Home
Huge open layout beach home with plenty room for everyone.
Fabulous beach home for family gathering
This is a fantastic house right on an amazing beach and it is convenient to get in to Haleiwa and go further up the North Shore to Pupukea. There are many areas for families to gather and spend time together both indoors and out. This house is particularly great for families with young children because of the enclosed yard and pocket doors in the home to keep toddlers contained and out of trouble. The home overall is nice but not so nice that you are worried about your kids ruining it. My only criticisms of this property: 1. the kitchen is a little under stocked for the number of people the home accommodates and some of the utensils are not in good shape. 2. The game room needs a makeover. It has only a warped pool table with holes in the pockets (not usable). We didn’t have anyone sleep out there but I imagine it would be hard to do so without any window coverings over the entire wall of windows.
Wow! This house was very spacious, clean, and well-equipped. The kitchen had everything you could imagine--dishwasher, coffeepot, blender, etc. Had a supple of beachtowels at the patio deck door for our use, sand toys and kids boogie boards on back deck, and great grill. The view/beach was fantastic. We were able to walk down the beach to view the sea turtles on the beach. It was the perfect Hawaii vacation home!!
The house is very spacious, plenty of room for everyone. The location was great. I really appreciated the large views out to the ocean from inside and the deck was very nice. It worked really well for our large combined family.
Great 4 bedroom ocean view rental
Really great rental. Bedroom/game room is located outside main home.
We had a fantastic time!! The mosquitos weren’t a great time but everything else was perfect!
Love this house
We loved our stay at Laniakea. Only thing that would make it better would be air conditioning. It was pretty hot and really humid for last week of March.
Best weekend in a long time
My family spent the past weekend at Laniakea and this property was amazing. Our daughter summed up the weekend as "best weekend in a long time" as she enjoyed the beach, the sand, the hot tub and the property overall.
I think the rest of my family would agree with her as we all enjoyed ourselves. We are already looking forward to the next time we can stay at Laniakea!
Our 5th ever family and friends "aloha party cousins" stay ended on Tuesday. Again, we are delighted by turtles and location. This time, there were a couple of opening challenges and we are DELIGHTED by the amazing quick response and "FIXES" to every problem. COmmunication was outstanding - Sarah, Lani, and BOB, repair and jack of all trades guy was fantastic.
The location of the house is perfect,right aside the beach. when taking rest in the backyard, you can easily see turtles resting and swimming around. and you can jump into sea anytime you want.
however the property's general condition is far below expectation. there is no air-conditioner in the house, and there is even no washing machine there. unbelieveable.
Manager Response: The house has two washing machines and two dryers, they are located behind the door that has a sign that reads "Washer and Dryer". As advertised there is no a/c, the sea breeze and trade winds and multiple fans keep everything at a beautiful temperature.
This home is in a great location with private access to the beach! The house is very well kept and spacious, lots of windows to keep that ocean breeze flowing through the house.
Perfect in every way! 3rd time staying here!
A Dream Come True!!!!
The pictures just don't capture how truly amazing this home is! The home, the location are absolutely breathtaking!! Our family of 14 stayed here recently for our son's wedding and it was perfect. I really don't think you can find a better vacation rental in Haleiwa...
Olsen Family Reunion
We loved the location and the house. We enjoyed being able to go to sleep with the sound of the surf. The deck is in need of repair and we couldn't get the TV in the main room to work. Everything else was in good condition.
Manager Response: Mahalo for your stay ! Glad you enjoyed the home & the sounds of the surf. I will definitely put this on our maintenance list to have someone check out.
special house to stay
wonderful view and nice to surf
Manager Response: Glad you enjoyed the home. We hope you come back to stay with any one of our homes again.
Wonderful time great location. I liked how the towels were by the door and 2 refrigerators great idea. We all agreed that we would return. The only negative would be that we didn't get into the house till after five ( house was still being cleaned)and there was no Wi-Fi . Awesome vacation.
Manager Response: Were glad you had a great vacation. Wished you would have called re Wi-Fi it is there and the password is in the move in instructions. You must have over looked it. Sometimes it takes a little longer to get the house clean after the tenants leave sorry about that we usually allow you to use part of the house that is ready to go if we need a little more time. Come join us again hope the surf was good for you.
Big Family Vacation
We were 17 family members, including 2 toddlers, all together for a family vacation. The beachfront home was perfect. Every morning we enjoyed coffee on the deck as we watched the surfers out on the treacherous waves. A photographer took family photos with the ocean in the background in the early evening before sunset. The sunsets were phenomenal. The kids were entertained at breakfast with Disney, swim with the dolfins, surf lessons, snorkeling, and beach time. We couldn't have rented a more perfect home. The kitchen was a little small, but the adults rotated chef duties for breakfast and dinners. For a home that size I would recommend a larger coffee pot and more face cloths. We had a great time. Thank you
Best Vacation Ever!
This home is the perfect location for any size family. Every detail was thought of prior to our arrival. This rental was stress free from beginning to end. We received communication for easy access, and if we had any issues we knew exactly how to contact (we had zero issues). The decor was beautiful to match the view. I can't say enough great things about this home and the staff that made this vacation perfect.
Excellent. Will definitively be back again to the same property.
Laniakea review - Sept 2016
We had a great time at a family (Ohana) gathering. The closeup turtle experience was a highlight for young and old alike. We used the brand new barbecue almost every night and stayed on the deck to watch the beautiful sunsets.
Side trips to Halaewa, Kapolani, Koko crater,Diamond head,Leanords (for Malasadas) and other sights filled our days.
All told we enjoyed the stay very much.
Note that the beach was much eroded in September, in part due to tropical storm Lester.
The new gate and stairway to the beach was nice, and when the deck and fence repairs are completed I will be able to upgrade my recommendation from 4 stars to 5 stars.
House was exactly as it was described on the website. On weekends there was a lot of vehicle traffic on the road but was much better during the week. Water was calm for most of the week which enabled us to see many Green turtles from the property back yard every afternoon. All of the beach sand directly behind the property has washed away but very good beaches are close walking distance. Sunsets were spectacular. Rain was on/off on most days but this did not get in the way of activities. Sharks Cove, Waimea beach and Waimea Falls are all very close and really great to visit.
Manager Response: Beach is coming back after the tropical storm.
What happened to the Beach in the Picture and video?
Everything was amazing other than we specifically picked this location for the Beach that shows in all the pictures and video but when we got there in was nothing at all even close to that. We figured the beach and weather changes things but we also figured someone would at least warn us it IS NOTHING like the photos and videos any longer before we spend $10,000.
Manager Response: the beach is back... Never know for sure it can go out for a week or 2 in the summer and quickly it comes back... Next time
This is a very nice location. Peaceful and relaxing. There were 8 of us in our party. My mother was able to enjoy the view from the sofa which made it very nice for her.
Unforgettable week on the North Shore
The house was amazing 3 families stayed there we had all the amenities we need Otsego pans washer dryers, the house is gorgeous. We loved the outdoor shower, hot tubbed every night. We BBQ daily everything exceeded our expectations. Best vacation ever
Pictures don't do this home & views justice. In addition to a well thought out rental, the hosts are attentive, hands off, and even provide an app with check in/our procedures, things to do, etc. Best rental experience I have ever had hands down.
We rented Laneakea Beach House as we have done many times over the years, and once again it was awesome. Everyone from Hawaii Beach Homes always goes above and beyond on helping us whenever something arises. Thank you. Would highly recommend their site and this home.
As soon as we walked in the door and saw the view we knew we'd picked the right place. Plenty of room to move around and not feel confined. The location was great because we could get everywhere easily.
What a great house. We had 4 families (14 people). Plenty of space. The kitchen was well appointed with everything you need. The outdoor space was great with a BBQ. The surf out the front was rough but could still take a dip to cool off. Short drive to many attractions on the North Shore. Would recommend this property for large groups.
Great House but Needs More Cleaning
The house was on a great location with a convenient access to the beach.
Few things that actually disappointed me; starting with the old-misleading instructions on how to access the rental. It was referring to a green door which a couldn't find especially at 11 pm when I first arrived to my house. I found out that the house used to be green but it was repainted brown! And the instructions were outdated.
Towels are mostly clean but some had few stains and the garbage wasn't empty!
Manager Response: Your right the house was just painted thank you for pointing that out. The garbage only goes out once a week so sometimes its pretty full when people arrive.Towels are always an issue if people take the white towels to the beach.
Glad you had a good time. Come back again.
A4 Laniakea North Shore Home
We had a great time. The location of the home and the size was exactly what we were looking for. There were plenty of attractions up North to keep us busy and the drive to Honolulu was not too bad.
We loved every moment!!! Beautiful home and professional company, we will be renting again again and again
What a perfect house and perfect location! Three families enjoyed a vacation of a lifetime! Gorgeous views from the deck. We enjoyed many evening BBQ's and sunsets as well as swimming right out front with the turtles every day. Perfect spot, as it's not crowded at all in front. We had a couple days of amazing surf out front, extra bonus for August. But always swimmable for the kids. Super close to the town Haleiwa and close to beautiful Waimea Falls and Waimea Bay. The kitchen and house were fully equipped. Hawaiian Beach Homes are wonderful and pleasant to work with, huge bonus! Can't say enough about what a special place this is! Hope to come back!
mom's dream vacation
from beginning to end all of us loved our vacation at the north shore and especially in our rental homes.
Our 9 days at this property was like family paradise on earth time. The location was so fantastic that it was hard to get everyone to leave to do the "tourist" things Oahu is noted for. The Polynesian Cultural Center and Dole Plantation were very close being on the North Shore as was Matsumoto Shaved Ice which we stopped at several times. Also the fish trucks! The beach was the best I'd ever been to. Everyone got into snorkeling and loved the sea turtles. My bedroom looked onto the ocean and I will forever cherish that gorgeous view! Beds were comfy . Kitchen and living room space was spacious and had everything we needed. We had called about a missing screen in one of the bathrooms which was the only area with some bugs and was disappointed that Hawaii Beach Homes told us a maintenance person would come that day or the next BUT they never came. However that did not change everyone's opinion that Grandma gets five stars plus for her choice of our Hawaiian vacation home! I would highly recommend it for any family especially for a group consisting of several families within the group to accommodate everyone's needs. The ping pong table was the object of some fun and serious competition all week. It was a great non beach activity. When we went to the Arizonia Memorial we had a long wait so decided to take the Missouri Battleship tour. I would highly recommend that regardless. It was so informational and all ages in our group 8 yrs old thru Grandma were so happy we had done it. We snorkeled at Devil's Cove to see the pretty fish instead of the tourist snorkeling places which was just down the road from our house and that was perfect to get the experience and not go far.. The day we checked out we went into Honolulu to eat and got a feel of the big city and for all of us to agree we were glad we were on the North Shore for our stay and not in the busy city.
Manager Response: The maintenance man did go by the day after the complaint was made, no one was at the home. He ordered the screen at the local hardware store as the correct size was not in stock, the missing screen was not a standard size. It has since been received and fixed.
Hawaii Beach Homes
Out of Site Vacation
We had the best vacation (all 23) my husband and I planned this vacation to include our 4 children, their spouses, 13 grandchildren (ages 8-18) The houses were just perfectly located. We were able to visit the places on our list without much driving. The highlight of the whole week was snorkeling with the turtles right out in front of the houses. If we win a million we will definitely be back!!!!
Manager Response: You were wonderful guests, we hope you win a million!
Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes
Laniakea was perfect. The house had everything we needed. Clean, well maintained and plenty of room for 14 of us. Location was ideal. Great spot for young children and adults. Beach was safe for swimming. Swam with the turtles every day right outside the house. Convenient to Hale'iwa and Waimea.
Manager Response: Aloha Margaret,
This home is in a wonderful location and we are so happy to hear you and your family enjoyed your stay and this home. The turtles in that area are amazing!
Hawaii Beach Homes
We stayed here for 5 nights, wish it was longer!! We had 13 people stay in this home ages 15-55, it accommodated us perfectly. Hanging out on the deck watching the turtles swim by, relaxing in the jacuzzi and napping in the hammock was extremely relaxing but being able to jump into the ocean at any time was absolutely perfect. We swam with turtles, almost nonstop! We cannot wait to come back!
Manager Response: Aloha Kari,
The amount of turtles on this beach is amazing and we are happy you were able to enjoy their company as well as this wonderful home :)
Hawaii Beach Homes
Great place to stay in North Shore
This house was perfect for us. The beach was right at your door step and it's a great location if you want to explore all of North Shore. Loved it!
Manager Response: Aloha Janine,
We are so happy that you enjoyed Laniakea! This property is truly a wonderful location. We are happy that you loved this beach and house, as we do too! Being that this property is well taken care of and the most popular on The North Shore we believe it speaks for itself. We can't wait for you to visit again!
Hawaii Beach Homes
Awesome. Place was perfect for us and after a couple of days we all decided to just stay "home" and enjoy it.
The house was super well equipped, had everything that we needed and more. We spent many hours on the beach which was 20 feet away and on the well shaded deck when we needed a break from the sun.
The only slight negative is the beach/surf. We were immediately warned by the local lifeguard that we had to be very careful because there is a channel right in front of the property that has a strong riptide, this was OK for a house full of adults but I would be wary if I had young kids. That said we would absolutely stay there again.
Manager Response: Aloha Chris,
We are so happy to read that you would absolutely stay there again! Depending on time of year waves can be higher than anticipated especially with global warming. We are so happy to read that you called this beach house, home. We truly look forward to hosting you and your great family in the future :)
Hawaii Beach Homes
Best home on the North Shore
My family and I could not have asked for a better home! The kitchen had more than enough equipment to cook with. There was more than enough towls, Beds, etc... The view was more beautiful than words can explain. The pace was private and excluded... The house was a hold proof save.. The counters corners were round instead of shard for little ones.. The house was just absolutely breath taking, there's not much more to say. Best home my family and I have ever stayed at!!! We can not wait to go again!!!
Manager Response: Aloha Khan,
Yes you said it, this home is the BEST on The North Shore! This home is truly amazing and has the best family atmosphere while you are enjoying a beachfront vacation in Hawaii :) Khan we want your group to come back anytime!
Hawaii Beach Homes
Our time at Laniakea on the North Shore was amazing. The house was in immaculate shape when we arrived, was spacious, and had all the bells and whistles. It had everything we needed! I highly recommend this home (except don't book it when we are planning on coming back again...haha!...so we can have it).
Manager Response: Aloha Matt,
We would love the opportunity to host your group again. We appreciate the time you took to share your experience with us! Laniakea is a special beach house with an amazing beach :)
Hawaii Beach Homes
Wonderful vacation home
We absolutely love the house, the beach, and the very accommodating helpful staff. This is our 6th time to this home. They have thought of everything to make it a delight. The sunsets, the beach in front, watching the turtles keeps us entertained. Why would one think of going to Waikiki?
Manager Response: Aloha Sandy,
Thank you for your wonderful review. We appreciate your staying with us! It is go great to hear that you enjoyed this property, why would you stay in Waikiki? We look forward to hosting you again next year. Safe Travels.
Hawaii Beach Homes
Perfect house for our group!!! Everything we needed and a perfect location!!! Love the beach and the view!!
Manager Response: Aloha Michelle,
Thank you for taking the time to review Laniakea. We are so happy to hear that not only you but your group enjoyed staying at this world renowned location. We look forward to hosting you again in the future.

Heaven on the North Shore
From the moment we walked in the front door to the moment we closed the front door for the last time, we were so very satisfied and grateful for the beautiful experience we had at A2. Laniakea-North Shore. Then view was breathtaking, the beach tranquil and inviting and the sea turtles were gifts of nature. The house accommodated our family of 12 comfortably. The kitchen had more than enough pots, pans, plates, etc. for all of our meals. We enjoyed the deck and bar-b-que every night. We soaked in the hot tub watching the gorgeous sunsets. Our grandkids enjoyed the game room and we enjoyed having them in the game room. Our week on the North Shore was very warm, both inside and out. But the beautiful ocean met our needs to cool off during the daytime. Nights were warm; a possible addition to the home would be a few free-standing fans. On a scale of 1-10, I would rate our stay and home a 9 1/12. Thank you for an unforgettable week of Aloha. We look forward to returning to this home and having yet another spectacular vacation!
Manager Response: Aloha Linda,

The location was perfect. Our backyard was the beach. We swam with sea turtles... There were food trucks, 10 mins. away with food similar to our NYC cafes. We ate most of our meals on the deck facing the ocean. Morning coffee watching the sunrise, dinner watching the sunset, and Nightcap gazing at the stars. One of the nicest vacations we've had.

Family Vacation to Cherish
Where to start? Our family of 13 were in this home from June 21--28 of 2014. We loved it. Our first afternoon was filled with beach time and sea turtles. The home accommodated our 8 adults and 5 children quite well, but the most popular features were the large platform bed on one side of the enormous living room, a separate building where the kids enjoyed playing "away from the adults," and the hammock. Great views out of the doors and a lovely deck. The location was good for us, too. We enjoyed shave ice several times and arrived at the Polynesian Cultural Center in good time. Some of our younger adults went into Honolulu, but headed quickly back to this beautiful North Shore. Only two things might keep this location from suiting everyone--the heavy gate that must be slid back to access the property was manageable for us (the oldest being 64), but it is work. The other is that the beach extends several yards toward the ocean and then the sand sharply drops off about 3 to 4 feet to reach the next beach level which has several yards of sand and then into the ocean. Our kids did not mind the sand "slide" and climb back up, but it certainly was not a place to leave them alone even for a minute. We could also walk down a ways and enter the water portion of the beach without the drop-off. Could be this sand formation and the waves(even in June) were just a temporary condition--don't know. Our trip stay here can be summarized with the reaction of our 8-year-old granddaughter when she curled up on the bed the last day and said she did not want to leave! We loved the home, the well-stocked kitchen, the contact with the rental agent, and the location. Mahalo to the owners for letting others enjoy their home.
Manager Response: Aloha Karen,
Thank you for taking the time to review our favorite destination. We too agree that this home is a great ohana experience! Thank you for telling us stories about the beaches and your experience. We can wait to share this in our staff meeting :) The beach changes in the summer and some of the sand goes out in for a few weeks and then comes back... so you just happen to catch it when it went to sea ...

The best yet
Plenty of room for everyone. Big deck. Some lawn. Right on the beach with many sea turtles just below. A seperate room/studio which my three grand daughters turned into a babe cave and loved it. I would go back in a flash.
Manager Response: Aloha Martin,
We wanted to thank you for taking the time to review Laniakea. We too think that this home is a very special place for families. We look forward to hosting you again in the future!

We had a family of ten, lots of room, great location, swim with the turtles in front of the house. Great beaches nearby also. Lots of fun, ready to go back.
Manager Response: Aloha Randy,
Laniakea is truly a family destination! We are happy to hear you were able to see turtles! We look forward to hosting you in the future.

Perfect family vacation
We have stayed several times in this area and this beach house was the perfect place for my family.Great access to food and restaurants nearby. This place has everything you need to enjoy Hawaii at it's best.
Manager Response: Aloha Rey,
Laniakea is truly a diamond out of all of our beach homes! We are glad you got to take advantage of the upgrades the owner just made! We look forward to hosting you many years to come!

We had 2 houses rented and we had a blast. Being right on the beach was fabulous. We had a turtle alert everyday. One actually came right on our beach for a break. Awesome. The hot tub was wonderful, although it did turn a little green, but we did the best we could with the tablets. Great abundance of washers/dryers. Loved the outside shower. The separate game room was great for my sister to stay in for some privacy. Our 86 year old dad loved hanging on the deck taking it all in. We would love to go back sometime in the future. Mahalo.
Manager Response: Aloha Greg,
Thank you for taking the time to review our favorite home. Laniakea is truly one of the gems in our portfolio. It is important to rinse of completely before getting in the jacuzzi, this will stop it from changing color. We look forward to hosting you and your family in the future.
Hawaii Beach Homes
Wow...beyond our dreams
Our family of ten enjoyed six incredible days in this beautiful Oahu home. We loved the location right on the beach. The home was perfect for us with our every need met from kitchen to Jacuzzi. It could not have been better. We're already thinking ahead to next year hoping we can meet again:-) Thanks for a wonderful experience
Manager Response: Aloha Barbara,
Thank you for sharing your review of Laniakea. This home is special to a lot of repeat guests. We are glad to hear that we will be hosting you in the future!

laniakea beach front
We have great time.
The house is nice but by the photos displayed in the site we thought there were 2 suites. One is actually the gameroom.
Another problem is that the hottub didn't work during our stayed.
Beside this the house is great, nice vibe and perfect location.
Manager Response: Aloha Claudio,
Thank you for taking the time to review your experience at Laniakea. We truly hope you enjoyed your oceanfront experience on the North Shore. We noted the hot tub issue and made a major attempt to try to fi it. For certain parts we have to out source to the mainland to get them, it does take longer than we would like. We are sorry for the inconvenience. We look forward to hosting you in the future.
Hawaii Beach Homes
My favorite beach!
We absoulutely love this house, location and amenities. The ocean is spectacular here, and the house is very well maintained. Hawaii Beach Homes personnel take time to provide the extra supplies that other rental agencies skimp on. Todd and Sara answered all of our questions and were available if we needed them, but we didn't. We have rented this house several times and have never been disappointed. We enjoyed a wonderful 3 weeks on the North Shore.
Manager Response: Aloha Vanna,
Thank you so much for taking the time to share your review :-) Laniakea is one of my personal favorite houses because of the location, style, & personal touch. We appreciate your feedback and look forward to hosting you in the future.
I would recomend this House...but
My group and I enjoyed our stay at this home. I was a little disappointed however in the professionalism of the management. I was honest in to the management company and indicated that we would have 2 additional guests that were going to be joining us last minute, and was happy to pay the extra fee. However when we arrived at the house the hot tub was not working. They promised they would have someone fix it. They never did. Being that is was a rainy week, we looked forward to using the hot tub. I was disappointed that the company was so demanding on getting my extra money for the extra guests, but could care less if they owned up to their end of the agreement by fixing the hot tub. Very unprofessional. I guess I was hoping that honesty wasn't a one-way street. All the company wanted from us was money, they lost my business.
Manager Response: Aloha Brad,
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. I'm sorry to hear about your experience with the hot tub. With this situation we did send our general contractor to the hot tub to see if there was anything we could do to fix the issue, the part wasn't stocked on island and we had to purchase it on the mainland. I believe we communicated with a few different people in your party. I'm sorry if there was a miscommunication on our end. We truly like to send an experience with aloha. When we learned about the extra guests we did charge the credit card immediately and it was declined because the guest canceled the card. For liability reasons we have to have all registered guests accounted for as well as paid for upon arrival. We hope that you give us another chance. The hot tub is now fixed. We do appreciate you business.

We LOVED Staying here!!
If you are even considering staying here, DO IT! Our only complaint was that we couldn't stay longer. We will be back!
Manager Response: We are very glad to know you enjoyed our home. Much Mahalos, Hawaii Beach Homes
We loved every minute of our vacation.
The home was perfect ! We have never been disappointed when we rent a property thru you. It was heaven on earth. The weather was great also. The view from the house was amazing. We have stayed in this home before and love the upgrades you made. We can't wait to come back. Aloha
Manager Response: Aloha Lindfords,
We look forward to seeing you folks! Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes
Awesome North Shore location, absolutely beautiful!
We had the best time staying in this beach front house. So casual and cool north shore location close to Haleiwa. We watched a little Triple Crown of Surfing right there. The house was clean and comfortable. Every utensil we needed for cooking great meals was in the kitchen. The BBQ worked, the hot tub worked and the views were unbelievable.
Manager Response: Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes
Great beach...great memories made!
This is the second time staying at this house. There were 5 adults and 7 kids (14 to 1 year old). Last time we stayed in May, this time in late Sept. There was less sand at the beach directly in front of the house this time, but it was no big deal. We just walked down a bit to where we were comfortable letting the kids play in the water. The house was a bit stuffy in the afternoons, especially in the main living areas...we tried our best to use fans and open is just more humid this time of year. Being at the beach helped, but someone had to be at the house during nap time. At night we just took showers (bocha!) to cool off before sleeping which helped.
We also had family staying two doors down, and we were able to make great memories on the beach, snorkeling, surfing, seeing turtles, watching sunrises and sunsets....everything that the North Shore has to offer. We did get to relax and enjoy ourselves, which is kinda tough to do while keeping an eye on the kids.
Thanks HBH for taking care of the issues that came up with the house. Hope to work with you all again when we come to play and relax on the North Shore! Mahalo and Alo)(a!!!!
Manager Response: Aloha Egger Family,
We're glad your family had a memorable time at our home. We would love to see you again in the near or distant future. Much Mahalos, Hawaii Beach Homes
Love the Laniakea Beach Home!!
An amazing place to stay! Prime beach location. Home is so large and comfortable. I have stayed mostly on the island these last four years and the home and environment of the Laniakea Beach House far exceeds many many others vacation rentals. I've stayed twice in the last two years and it will be my only vacation place on Ohau's North Shore.
Manager Response: Aloha Richard,
We love that you love our home. We look forward to seeing you sometime in the near or distant future. Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes
Swimming with the Turtles
Wow! We loved the location for sure. We saw and swam with the turtles daily. Great house. Open main room. Beautiful view from the back deck. The kids loved the game room. Easy to get back and forth from town. Snorkeling gear at the house. Washer and dryer were convenient. We used the BBQ a couple of times. The only snag experienced was that the hot tub wasn't working. To the management company's credit, they attempted a few times to fix it, but with no success. In the end, they were gracious in giving a partial refund for not having that amenity available. We would go back in a heartbeat!!
Manager Response: You folks were prefect guests and would love to have you back anytime! Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes
One of the best vacation rentals I've ever stayed at. The location is the main reason. Spaciousness is the secondary reason. Cleanliness is the third reason. The only gripe that I have is that the hot tub water was a bit greenish.
Manager Response: We would have been more than happy to have someone treat the hot tub, had we had known. We're glad that you and your family enjoyed yourselves and hope to see you again soon. Mahalo for your review, Hawaii Beach Homes
When we arrived at this rental we were stunned by the space and beauty. The pictures do not fully capture this spawling compound. The location is superb: secluded and private. The beach and turtles are magical.
Manager Response: We're very glad you enjoyed the home and it exceeded your expectations. We hope to see you again soon! Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes
Turned off by bugs.
There were 14 of us. We had a great time and created many fine memories.We found the kitchen to be very small for that number of people but it worked. It was fully equipped. The condition of the deck is quite old and a little rotten. thought some spa chemicals should be left on site or someone checking the water quality in the jacuzzi. After ten days it got a little green. No chlorine tablet left in the filter basket. Most of all we were turned off by the thousands of black bugs that would appear on the ceiling and walls in the whole house. It was a little better after the house was sprayed. We had to vacuum them up.
Manager Response: Aloha Barbara,
We are glad to know that you enjoyed the home. Thank you for the feedback, we are sorry you encountered problems and are working to correct all maintenance issues you have brought up. All our homes are treated on a monthly basis and it is helpful to keep all food covered/and crumbs cleaned up immediately, as this is a tropical climate and these steps make a big difference. Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes
Great vacation home
We had a great time in this beautiful beach house. My wife and I got married on the beach right out back. Also, we got to film sea turtles almost everyday swimming buy. Awesome place and I will will stay again the next time we are in HI.

FAMILY TOGETHER FOR OUR 50TH WEDDING ANNIVERSARY
WONDERFUL. Our family of 13 was more than comfortable in this home. The location was perfect, the beach incredible, the North Shore the perfect place to enjoy Hawaii. We enjoyed seeing sea turtles, surfing, snorkeling, and when we went to Waimea Bay Beach a family of about 10 - 12 dolphins entertained us!!!! The game room was great for the grandkids, the jacuzzi was enjoyed everyday. PERFECT.
Manager Response: Aloha William,
We are happy to know you and your family had a great time at Laniakea. Mahalo for your review! Hawaii Beach Homes
Family vibist to Hawaii.
Manager Response: Aloha Ken,
Much Mahalos for your kind review.
Beautiful and Relaxing Vacation Home in Perfect Location
We had a wonderful vacation experience in this property. The home was laid out perfectly for the number of guests in our party, with plenty of beds and bathroom space. The master bathroom was so enjoyable! Perfect location close to the little town of Haleiwa for incidentals and souvenir shopping, and also very close to the tourist attraction, Waimea Falls, in addition to being close to great snorkel and surf spots. Our favorite part was the beautiful and pristine sandy beach just steps away from the back deck. Definitely recommended for a family or group of any age, and we hope to return again next year.
Manager Response: Aloha Bryant,
We are so glad to hear that you had a wonderful time at Laniakea. We would surely love to have you again next year. Maybe you could try one of our other homes, we have two that are right next door to Lanikea. Much Mahalos, Hawaii Beach Homes
We stayed with 7 adults and 4 kids ages 13,11,7 & 1.5.
I would Definatly recommend this property! The beach in front was beautiful! We watched whales and turtles in front everyday. The bedrooms and living area was spacious, we never felt cramped. The hot tub seemed quite clean. I would love to come back with more family and friends. Property was great for kids as the yard was fully fenced and had a games room to keep them entertained. Only flaws was the home was deteriorating a bit. Fridge was broken in spots, kitchen window was unable to open, the deck was also quite unsteadyabd rotten in spots, my husbands foot fell right through an area. The shower in the largest bathroom was hard to use, and the dishwasher could also be replaced. If these things were fixed up we would of rated it a 100! Thanks for a great trip, hope to stay again soon!
Manager Response: Aloha Jen,
Thank you for your feed back. We always tell our guests to contact us with any issues they have regarding the home they are renting. Our maintenance is aware of the deck and is scheduled to make the repairs. Also, in regards to the window, our maintenance crew is waiting on a part from off- island so he can fix the window. Thank you so much for your review and we are very happy you enjoyed your stay. Please think of us the next time you plan on making a trip to Oahu. Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes.
Family of Twelve
We enjoyed a week at Laniakea, 7 adults 5 kids (age 8 to 11). The propery was spacious, comfortable, clean and welcoming. The kids enjoyed the guest house (dubbed the "Kids Club") and we had enough rooms for adults and kids. There were lots of deck chairs outside and we enjoyed the hot tub. The sunsets and sea turtles and the lack of crowds on the beach were a big part of what we enjoyed at this location. The laundry (two washers) was appreciated. We enjoyed the location -- close to town (shave ice!), grocery store (Foodland, though we shopped at Costco too), and north shore and east side beaches.
A few things I will point out, eating area in the kitchen was great (kids at peninsula, adults at the big table) but the main kitchen is fairly small for that many people(room to move around prepping/cooking), but we just drew names out of the hat and 2 adults made the big dinner meal and we bbq'ed every day but one. The bathrooms were somewhat awkward to share. Two of the bathrooms are off bedrooms, and one is in the guesthouse so that left one common bathroom in the main house (for two bedrooms, which in our case housed 7 people) We're family so we left bedroom doors open and it worked, but for future guests, it is something to be made aware of. The ocean in March had a significant surf (High surf warnings a few days). Some of us enjoyed it but for some it was too rough to enjoy the water and for smaller kids especially would not have been suitable (the lovely sandy beach and sea turtles more than compensated!).
Finally, I most apprecaited the professional managers. We had difficult and awkward experiences dealing with other people renting their own homes, so to have people who knew what they were doing and were very professional was much appreciated. We would definitely recommend and would love to return!
