North Shore Real Estate
E komo mai! Welcome to Oahu’s World Famous North Shore! This is the home of epic waves and championship surf contests. The North Shore stretches from the old plantation town of Kahuku to the wildlife refuge at Kaena Point. Perhaps best known for its miles of sandy beaches and laidback lifestyle, Oahu’s North Shore is truly a wonderful world unto itself. Here you will see Bentleys and old pickups parked at the same shave ice shack. Dress code is an aloha shirt, sundress, and a pair of flip flops. The quaint town of Haleiwa is like walking back into the 60’s. It is a bumper to bumper bustling town filled with great outdoor cafes, surf shops, and artist’s galleries. Whether you get there via the Windward coast, or drive over the pineapple fields from Honolulu, you will feel it the second you arrive…it’s the Aaaahhhh factor!
North Shore real estate opportunities are just as exciting. There are all types of North Shore homes for sale. If you like a more polished resort life style, then Kuilima Estates is a sure bet. You will find beautiful condominiums lining the Palmer and Fazio golf courses. If beachside living is your dream, then you will love the upscale condominiums at the Ocean Villas at Turtle Bay. The grounds are perfectly manicured with tropical foliage and sparkling pools. The ocean is simply gorgeous! This resort style complex is popular with the second home crowd as well as year round residents. There are plenty of vacation rentals too, making it a great place to do some real estate investing!
Travel further down Kamehameha Highway past fruit stands and lunch wagons until you get to Sunset Beach and Pipeline. Magnificent North Shore oceanfront homes are nestled above the white sand and make great primary or second homes. This area has the most expensive North Shore real estate, but you will find everything from cozy beach bungalows to exquisite mansions. Sunset Colony is a beautiful upscale gated community located on a popular surf break. Known for incredible waves, Waimea is a surfer’s (or spectator’s) dream. This is where the sand, lava rock, and ocean do an incredible dance. If you like privacy and the sense of country, consider Pupukea. It is one of the very few places on Oahu where you can purchase acreage. Homes perched on the cliffs have postcard perfect ocean views. Between Waimea and Haleiwa town is an area called the Seven Mile Miracle. The beaches and ocean will dazzle you. There are several spots where you can swim next to the sea turtles.
Every home on Oahu’s North Shore is unique, and that’s part of what I love about North Shore real estate. It’s pineapples, lychee, mangos, and bananas! That is the beauty of the North Shore. If you are looking for a beachfront home, golf course frontage condo, large acreage, agricultural land, a cozy bungalow, or an investment property, the North Shore has it all! This is Hawaii unbridled!
