- SEASHELL HOUSE-
Behind the private gate of this quaint beach cottage home is a hidden paradise. Seashell Beach House is an immaculate and bright 2 Bedroom, 1 bath located on 100 linear feet of prime beachfront. Stand up paddle, surf, and swim with turtles just outside your front door. The house is sunny and spotless, a comfortable little retreat in Paradise.
- THE BEACH -
The tropical backyard is set up perfectly for beachside bbq's, and the wrap around lanai is the perfect place to end your day as the sun sinks over the Pacific. The lawn spills down to a sugary beach and turquoise blue water. Seashell is just steps away from several of The North Shore's famous surf breaks such as Chuns, Leftovers, Rightovers, Waimea and Alligator Rock. As there is no nearby public access you'll often have the whole beach to yourself, with the exception of sea turtles bobbing in the water right off shore.
- THE NEIGHBORHOOD -
The location is minutes away from Waimea Valley, farmers markets, and local shops. The laid back town of Haleiwa is 3 miles away with shops, galleries, and endless Aloha. Four star golf and restaurants are available close by at Turtle Bay, though few things can beat the experience of eating fresh fruit smoothies or the morning’s catch from one of Haleiwa’s fantastic food trucks. The area boosts tremendous hikes, historical sites, waterfalls, botanical gardens, and, of course, a few of the most famous surf beaches on earth.
One: 1 King
Two: 2 Twins

Loved the location
My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights recently and really enjoyed it. The location is great, close to Haleiwa, Pupukea, Waimea - everywhere you want to be on the North Shore. The shower and AC were broken upon our arrival, but were fixed within a day so it was not much of an issue. We would absolutely stay here again!
We rented this beach house to have a staycation on island because we wanted to stay directly on the beach and enjoy relaxing time as a family and this place was absolutely perfect. The beach out front is gorgeous and quiet. We saw dolphins go by almost every day. The sound of the ocean from the bedroom was a dream. The place is so cute and has everything you need. The yard is perfect for beautiful evenings outside. We are out there every night. And our toddler just loved running around on the grass. The outdoor shower is perfect for after the beach and the bench swing is so great too. I would stay here again in a heartbeat and I don’t think there are many beach rentals that can compare in quality and price to this spot. Thank you!
Wilson Family Northshore Vacation 6/2019
After reading SO many reviews for different VRBO homes on the Northshore , we decided to book with the Seashell Home because of the location! I must say the location was absolutely amazing, directly on the private beach and exactly as the pictures showed! I had some concerns about renting this home because of the reviews stating the home was directly off the highway which made it hard to get out of everyday, and negative comments about the noise coming from the cars on the highway. Yes. Both of these complaints are accurate. It was not fun backing out onto the highway but one of us would literally walk out to the road and stop traffic so we could get out. Not ideal, but it worked. As for the noise coming from the highway, again, yes we heard it, but it didn’t keep any of our 5 family members awake. The home is small and doesn’t have many upgrades but it WORKS & the A/C works! The location is the most important thing on this kind of vacation and you couldn’t PAY me to stay down in Honolulu with the city life and congestion. Our family had an amazing 9 full days of Hawaii life and we enjoyed every minute of it at the Seashell house. Probably wouldn’t stay there again just because 5 adults really need a 3rd bedroom! Only real suggestion I would have to the owners of this property is to invest in a FULL L-shaped couch instead of those little chairs. They were not cozy to relax in late in the day. We set up Eno hammocks and truly spent 90% of our days outside!! Met some very kind neighbors as well. Mahalo -
This place was truly special. The location was insane. Sunsets were epic, side yard at night was awesome, and House was comfortable. I prefer a slower pace when vacationing, and this was just my speed. The traffic is heavy before and after sunset, but to be expected when there’s sunsets like there is on the North Shore. I’ve noticed some complaining of road noice, but as someone who’s stayed at beachfront properties I’m not sure what else you’d expect. There’s only one road directly beside any waterfront. I had one issue, but it was resolved by the Hawaii Beach Homes maintenance staff. With the house location, view, privacy, and beachfront yard I could’ve just stayed there the entire stay. Awesome little place. I hope others enjoy it as much as I did.
The house is situated 10 steps from a very private beach. I would’ve given it more stars if the house wasn’t so close to the street. Cars drive by all day and night and when you’re on the beach, no problem. However, if you’re a light sleeper, the traffic might be a problem. The house can use a little sprucing up with decor but if you’re spending time outdoors like we did, then you overlook this. The grass area with the market lights and picnic table was a great place to watch the sunsets.
Manager Response: Thank you for taking the time to review! Like most beach homes on Oahu we are located off the main coastal road, light sleepers may want to consider staying further inland. However, most guests are not bothered, especially if they utilize the a/c and fans at night.
What a great place on the North Shore.
We had a great vacation, the beachfront location is superb, the verandah for breakfast or dinner is beautiful. Close enough to Haleiwa for some meals and good facilities to eat in. One day we didn’t use the rental car just walked the beaches, watched the whales & turtles, laid in the sun, read books and grilled steaks for dinner.
Check out the location it is on the busy highway and the house is an original older bungalow style, get past that and you’ll have a great time.
Manager Response: Thank you for staying with us, and for taking the time to leave a review! You are correct, this is a classic little beach home that is perfect for truly relaxing. We are so happy you were able to relax on the beach and watch the whales and turtles! If prospective guests have any questions about the house or its location please don't hesitate to call us for more details.
Perfect North Shore Cabin
We loved the seashell house! It was the best little cabin on the North Shore we have stayed at yet.
Manager Response: Thank you so much for the compliment, we are so happy you enjoyed our home!
GREAT Place To Stay!!
This is a great North Shore getaway whether you're coming from out of state or just want to get away from downtown for the weekend. Some reviews mentioned the noise from the highway. We didn't experience that. The beautiful sound of the waves -- which are RIGHT outside your door -- drown that out. A couple reviews mentioned the house needing a deep clean. We didn't experience that either. Anyone who's lived by the ocean -- especially THIS close to the ocean -- knows that "immaculate" is unreasonable. This place was very clean and we wouldn't hesitate to stay there again! Mahalo nut loa to their staff.
The ocean ́s view and the wild beaches are really breathtaking!
It ́s impossible to not fall in love with this place, half of my heart remained here! From the main room ́s window and the terrace you see only the endless ocean and the little wild beaches. The house is located directly on one of those magnificient wild beaches from the North shore. The little beach in front of the property is almost yours, only one morning we had a couple of fishermen doing their job. The little garden is also amazing with its swing facing the ocean. You can park inside of the property.
One of my best experiences that I would repeat anytime!
( My advice to the owners is regarding the place for the soap and shampoo and the bathtub which need some improvements , as for the rest congratulations from all my heart for beeing so lucky to have a little piece of Heaven)
Surf right at the steps with several different breaks within easy walking distance. Very tidy little piece of paradise. Thank you
Beautiful Beach house
We had a blast staying on Chun’s beach. The waves were really fun and fishing was great.
This spot is located between Hale’iwa town and Pūpūkea so easy access to restaurants and stores. I recommend spending 4 or more days
There are 4 of us, plenty of room. ALO)(A
Vacation August 2018
The property was in a great location. The household furniture was a little disappointing. The kitchen chairs were old and uncomfortable as well as the couch. We had a power outage but the flashlight that was there didn’t work, the batteries were old. Would suggest updating furniture and emergency lighting
Overall is was a good experience and nice place to stay. The location could not have been better. We were so close to the beach & the sound of the waves at night were awesome. The house is off of a very busy road so you really need to back into the parking spot to be able to get back out safely. The road noise is a bit loud, but didn't bother us too bad. There is no garbage disposal @ the sink so that took a little getting adjusted to. It's a cute little house & we loved the beach and waves being right outside the door basically.
Great location! Clean home, good communication before and during, no complaints - we will be back again hopefully someday soon!
This house is everything it claims to be. We always have great experiences using Hawaii beach homes. Turtle watching, private beach, snorkeling, surfers and paddle boarding . Yes you are on a busy road but honestly it gets drowned out by ocean waves. Loved this home and the view is beautiful. Local feel.
Wonderful Beach Home
We fully enjoyed our stay at this quaint beach house on the North Shore of Oahu. The house is tiny but worked for 6 of us. The location was perfect. The small historic town of Haleiwa was filled with shops, restaurants and the best coffee shop! The house is also located less than a mile from Turtle Beach. We were lucky enough to see turtles a few times during our stay. The waves on the north shore are larger so if you have smaller children swimming may be an issue but for our teenage boys it was perfect. They enjoyed jumping the waves (we were there in April. We saw surfers every day which was also very cool. The pictures are a little outdated, the house is now black and the trees/plants are somewhat larger than in the picture. Overall a wonderful family vacation and it was also close to Schofield Barracks which was perfect since we were visiting my daughter and her husband who are currently stationed there. I hope we get a chance to go back!! Loved it!
The setting was perfect. Beachfront home, with a little side yard for privacy. The location was amazing. The main highway was a little noisy at night but usually the ocean waves drowned out the car noise. The was nice, but needed some additional cleaning. The shower curtain was pretty dirty and should have been replaced. There was food splatter on the walls. And the refrigerator didn't seem to keep things very cold. We received an email the day after we checked in asking if we needed anything so I replied explaining some of our concerns but we didn't get any response. I sent another message a few days later, and again no response. The home had great reviews so maybe our expectations were a little too high but in the end we made the best of the experience. We only wish the management company had taken the time to address some of our concerns.
North Shore Getaway
Great beachside location. Loved the beach and all it had to offer especially the surfers. Management Co. needs to improve their game a bit. No bathroom soap, no iron and refer. didn't cool enough, looked like a defective seal. Have vacation rentals of our own and am very familiar with expectations.
Northshore in January
Loved the location and the beach. Very comfortable and close to the action on the North Shore. New soft towels and a clean well decorated place right on the water. If you like a quiet place this is not the place for you. The waves pound day and night. We loved it! The house is also right next to the two lane highway that runs up and down the north shore and it is noisy... almost all the time. The speed limit is 35 but late at night and early cars and trucks race through there. We shut all the doors and turned on the air conditioners to drown out the noise but it still comes through. Getting in and out of the gate with traffic is also a little hairy since it is right on the highway. We backed in so it made leaving a lot easier. My only only other comment was the rental company is not very responsive and hard to get a hold of: The refrigerator broke and we could not get a call back. Had to throw out food.
Seashell seashore heaven!
We had one of the best family holidays staying at Seashells. The beach shack is beautiful and the grounds even prettier.
What a lovely place, meters from the beach. We found Seashell house very clean and comfortable, great area, shops and restaurants near by. I saw some Mandarays swimming on the shore line in front of the house.
This place was absolutely amazing! Loved the location. The place was clean, comfortable, well decorated and the location provided the best beach "away from it all " experience. I can't wait to stay here again!
Most Relaxing Vacation!
This is our favorite spot. We've rented this house several times over the past 10-12 years, and it's never disappointed us. The new owners even added new beds, which were heavenly! The property managers were great to work with also. We'll be back, hopefully soon! Mahalo!
A wonderful Paradise Getaway
All you could ask for in a Beach Home. Clean, well supplied, and a great stretch of beach. Had a tough time with gate to parking, but help was but a call away. Expectations were met
Great bungalow right on the beach!
This is a very nice beach bungalow. The view is gorgeous. The property description is accurate and it is very clean and in great condition. It is close to the road but it did not bother anyone as it quiets down at night. The house is very close to Haleiwa so grocery shopping, activities and restaurants are minutes away. This was our second rental through Hawaii Beach Homes and they did not disappoint! I would highly recommend this house.
Cute House Great Location
Very relaxing with the sound of the ocean and the beach at the back door.
Loved our Ocean Front Beach House
This is an adorable small beach house for our family of 5. The beach area was beautiful and the splendor of the ocean waves right outside our back door was amazing. The sheets and towels had a fresh clean smell. The beds were comfortable and the cottage was quaint and well maintained. The location was perfect and we loved visiting the nearby beaches and Haleiwa which is an adorable little beach town. We had open communication with the management company and they were always very courteous. As far as road noise, we had no issue with that because the musical waves were all we could hear. As far as ants or bugs, we kept all of our food in the fridge so that was not a problem. Our only mystery about this beach house was an odor that was apparent when all the doors and windows were shut and the lack of hot water for kitchen dishes. The unusual odor seemed to permeate from the wood blinds. We always had wifi and plenty of towels, beach towels, sheets and pillows. It was an adorable beach house in an ideal location. We loved our stay at Oahu and I would recommend this property.
North Shore Getaway
We really enjoyed our stay at the E Seashell House. The location was perfect and right on the water which was so beautiful. The four of us had a wonderful time sitting and watching the large North Shore waves. It was only a five minute drive to Halewai when you needed anything from town, like dinner or groceries. The waves were wonderful and we were even able to spot a few whales from the home. Just a couple of downsides, the house was pretty noisy especially if you were in the twin bed room (bring some ear plugs for the road noise) and the gate to park your car had to be opened by someone every time and on the small, busy road. It was a little challenging but definitely manageable. The rental company was very quick to respond with any concerns. Overall, we loved the home and would recommend it to friends and family for future stays.
We had a wonderful stay at the north shore. The home was perfect. Yes the road was a bit noisy but the waves from the beach drowned out any road noise.
The view from our bedroom was the best we have ever had
Perfect Home on the North Shore
We are definitely going to rent this home again. We love the North Shore, and this home is perfect for us. The month of October is not the best time if you are expecting to swim in the front yard. Surf can be a little rough, but sleeping at night with the sound of the surf is perfect. Had a couple small issues but those were fix very quickly. We loved this home.
Little house on the north shore
Relaxing & comfortable
Very relaxing! Having the beach just outside was nice. Some days it was only us on the beach.. The weather was perfect. Lani and staff responded in a timely manner when we had questions. Property is on main highway and can be noisy with the traffic. Other then that, we enjoyed our visit and would stay there again.
The house was exactly as the pictures showed. Great for a surfing family. Highway noise was very hard to sleep especially the first night, got used to it eventually. There's something about the house though it's very calming and has a good vibe to it.Hawaii Beach Homes are definitely the people to deal with holiday accommodation . Their service is impeccable!
All in all if you're a light sleeper this area is not for you , spoke to other neighbors and their houses were hard to sleep at night cause of highway noise. If you do stay park your car on the road , not the inside car park , too dangerous to maneuver getting in and out of house.
The Seashell House is the 4th rental property that we have stayed in on the North Shore over the last 2 years and it was by far the cleanest. The location was perfect-between Halewia and Waimea Bay. The beach itself is also very nice- not as rocky as many of the beaches along the North Shore. The driveway is right off of Kam Road and it was a challenge getting the gate open and pulling in with all of the traffic however this would not prevent me from renting this home again.
Seashell House Horthshore
Good. The cottage was clean and comfortable. The beach beautiful. It is located on a very busy road and the road noise is loud and non-stop.
Manager Response: The majority of beach front homes in Hawaii are off of a main coastal road. The road near the Seashell house is two lanes, the speed limit is 35 miles per hour and the road is not busy after sunset. There is a tall fence separating the house from the road, the house can be closed and a/c turned on to reduce noise, and most guests find the sounds of the ocean and waves are what they hear more than anything else.
What a wonderful stay at the Haleiwa beach house!! Everything was perfect, great location, gorgeous beach, beautiful sunsets every night!! The house has everything you need, plenty of room, comfy beds, I would definitely stay here again! We were so fortunate to find this place for our trip up to the north shore, thank you!!!
Nice and cozy
Nice location, right in front of a beautiful beach. You are literally 5 steps to the beach. 5 min drive to Haleiwa and many beach parks. The unit has a kitchen, living area, 2 bed rooms, and bath, but all are rather small. Not luxurious but very clean. There is a shower outside and a BBQ grill in the garden. A kayak was located in the garden, though we did not have a chance to use it as the waves were of good size. Best for a family of 4. The bath has only a shower. The 2nd bedroom faces the street so may be a little noisy at night due to traffic, juts like others have mentioned. Getting in and out of the garage was no problem.
Overall, worth the money and
Everything was great except two of the AC units didn't work and the stairs leading to the unit are a little dangerous, the steps are lose.
Review of Seashell rental
Had a great experience on North Shore. Location of Seashell was perfect for snorkeling and sitting on lanai for morning coffee or evening wine watching the sunset.
Street noise was pretty loud. House is very close to street and short fence does not do an adequate job of suppressing noise. Many other homes have a wall which would probably do a better job.
The property is located right on a beautiful beach! The ocean view is spectacular, and sea turtles can be seen every day. The outdoor shower is great. It is very difficult to get into and out of the driveway on a very busy highway. There is no room to turn a car around, so we had to back into the drive and that was not easy because the highway is so busy. The furniture in the living room is not a very high quality and workers came into the property unannounced to cut shrubbery early one morning. Overall, the house was very clean, the beach was fantastic, and we enjoyed our stay.
Manager Response: The Seashell house is off Kamehameha Hwy, the two lane coastal road along the North and East shore. The speed limit is 35 and local drivers are pretty patient, so we hope guests don't feel overwhelmed entering and exiting the property. We are so glad the guests otherwise enjoyed their stay, the beach out front is a little hidden secret on the North Shore!
Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes
Cute little House
We found the house perfect for our family of four. It was clean and in a very nice location on the north shore. No complaints!
Manager Response: Thank you for the nice review!
Mahalo - Hawaii Beach Homes
Amazing location! The beach is your front yard! My 14 year old son and his friend were constantly in the water, walking on the beach and swimming with turtles! The house was great - to be honest we rarely spent any time indoors! It was the perfect size for two Moms and two teenage boys! It was well equipped. The pull out couch wasn't the most comfortable, but we were able to put some cushions on it and it was fine. I do recommend getting a small car - the parking area is small and backing out is a bit tricky at first, but by the end of our stay it was not a big deal. The house is very private and I felt very safe at all times. I would recommend that another trash can be added - ours was full when we arrived and was smelly!
Would rent this house again!
Manager Response: Thank you for taking the time to review, we are so happy you enjoyed vacation so much!

Seashell House Review
Overall, we had a wonderful experience and I would recommend this vacation rental. The only thing to be aware of was the noise of the traffic on the street outside but this had nothing to do with the rental and the noise of the ocean managed to mostly cancel it out. Having the beach for ourselves right out front was amazing and aside from a few people walking past occasionally we had it to ourselves.
Manager Response: Aloha Patrick,
Yes this home is located in an area with very few public beach accesses so it is mainly other home owners only on the beach :) We are happy to hear you had a wonderful time and hope to have you back one day.
Hawaii Beach Homes
We stayed with our teenage child in March 2015. The Seashell House is located in a prime North Shore spot. Midway to Haleiwa town and close to all North Shore surfing spots. We surfed outside out our back door. The beach is private and safe swimming areas are nearby. The cottage was clean when we arrived. The back porch is perfect for watching the whales, turtles and sunsets. The side yard area is shady and a perfect place to escape the sun in several provided plastic Adirondack chairs. Although we did not use any of the kitchen appliances (except the fridge) all seemed in newer condition and well equipped. The current website pictures are accurate. The living room only has one couch which was quite uncomfortable, but it was rarely used. The small flatscreen was not turned on. The larger bedroom looked over the water and we slept with the sliders open and never used any A/C wall units. The only negative about this great little house is the parking and entry gate. It is very hard to find in the dark (or rain) and it was extremely tight to fit our rented SUV in the space in front of the gate to unlock the gate to enter. Then backing out into the busy road was difficult with having to close the gate back. The outside shower was great as was the gas grill. We would stay again for sure if we were willing to rent a tiny car. The road is busy and noisy but the crashing waves seem to drown it out thankfully. The rental agency was easy to work with but we had no issues to discuss with them.
Manager Response: Hi Brett,
We are so pleased to hear you folks enjoyed your stay. I thinks it's great you folks spent time outdoors rather than watching T.V. We would love to have you back anytime.
Hawaii Beach Homes
This house was a great place for our family of four to have our first Oahu vacation. It had everything we needed from beach towels to everything for cooking. We loved using the barbecue and eating on the deck with the beautiful view of the ocean. We saw turtles in the waves a couple of times which was a cool and my husband enjoyed fishing off the shore! The beach is literally right off the deck. The house was really clean and the beds were really comfortable. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.
Manager Response: Aloha Kandace,
We very much appreciate your accurate description of The Seashell House!The property has a prime location and offers beautiful sunsets right off your own lanai :) We look forward to you staying with us again in the future.
Hawaii Beach Homes
bungalow on the beach
Perfect location right on the beach; just the right size for two people (could accommodate four); clean; well equipped kitchen; wi-fi; TV; comfortable bed.
Furniture was very uncomfortable, especially the sofa and deck stools; air conditioners did not work.
Manager Response: Aloha Margaret,
This is a wonderful beach house that has a perfect location. We appreciate your compliments on cleanliness and amenities. We do provide all of our guests with an opportunity to report and repairs. There is no emails or phone calls. The A/C units are "split" which means they have to be plugged into the wall. We do have several other reviews which have noted this property to be "perfect size" and a great family getaway. We do look for an opportunity to host you again in the future at another possible location.
Hawaii Beach Homes
wonderful.adorable house..perfect location.convenient to town.. road in front very noisy otherwise perfect for two people!
Manager Response: Aloha Kathryn,
The Seashell house is truly a perfect location! The road is actually located behind the home and is privately gated. This home is located near one of the most popular surf spots on The North Shore and traffic can be an issue during peak season.
