Description from the manager
Living in this home is an experience in itself. This is not your typical beachfront home. It features beautiful and peaceful tropical grounds, and stunning world-class architecture. Located on the North Shore this elegant home offers a stunning beach, a reflecting pool (architectural detail, not for swimming) and dramatic views from the interior. The property is entirely walled from the street, and very private. Paddle out to two surfing spots that are immediately acessible from the beach. You'll see or swim with sea turtles just steps from the house every day. Shops and restaurants of Oahu's historic Haleiwa Town are only 4 miles away. Home...Read more

What Past Guests Are Saying
Great House and Location
The most amazing thing was walking out the back gate onto the beach and being greeted by turtles sunbaking and moonbaking on the shore.
The house was beautiful and the gardens lovely. The master bedroom faced the ocean and you could hear the waves throughout the night. The secondary bedroom has a queen bed and 2 single beds with views to the mountains. The secondary bedroom was quite light during the night due to a street lamp and even though it is in a residential area and on a single lane road it was fairly busy early in the morning. The kitched is fully equipped and has everything that you could want or need!
The back garden had a gazebo with a shower (that wasn't working) and a couple of very comfortable chairs, a couple of sun lounges on the grassed area. On the verandah there was an outdoor setting for 4.
After reading the last review we were worried but apart for a few maintenance issues holding it back from getting an amazing rating. namely the garden lighting didn't work and many globes were blown throughout the house and verandahs. The Hottub wasn't working when we arrived but we found that it had tripped the safety switch in the sub meter box. Outdoor shower at the beach entrance wasn't working which meant that it was difficult to wash your feet after the beach. The pond feature looked yucky and was full of mosquito larvae and algae.
But all things aside we would go back again in a heart beat!
WAVE HOUSE HAPPY
PLATTE CITY, MISSOURI
It was amazing.
We were at the wave house for 6 days with our daughter & Son-in-law. All 4 of us agree that it was way beyond our expectations! The house was amazing as well as the view, the beach and location was all that we dreamed of. We would Definately enjoy another visit there.

S Wave House
We loved the house and wish we could buy it, but the asking price is a little high. Anyways, we did have two minor let downs. The Hot Tub was freezing cold and would not heat up even when turning the temp all the way up. The floor also seemed dirty. Of course it is a beach house so that could be expected. Overall it was a great rental and we will be back .
Great House, Great Location, Beautiful Beach, Some Annoyances
The house was beautiful, comfortable and the landscaping was gorgeous with a gorgeous view and wonderfully private beach. The reflecting pool was perplexing. When constructing the pool why not just make it a 4-5 foot pool for swimmng? It was nice for my 2 year old but really unusable for adults except to play with the 2 year old. And it wasn't easy for the 2 year old to get in and out of the pool the house was not really for kids but was comfortable for him anyway.
Also the hot tub never got past barely lukewarm. Even though the handyman showed up and said he called it in we were never able to use it so it was disappointing.
The neighbor on the East would make unusual, jarring, abrupt, unknown various noises at 4AM - 5AM almost everyday of our 15 night stay. Some days it would be opera blasting, other days clanging, or banging, or slamming. It was bizarre and very annoying. They must be returning from work at that time but why so noisy?
The beach was truly wonderful and private and we saw turtles every single day with lots of fish in the reef. Nice little surf spots and beautiful sunsets. Waialua/Mokuleia is THE PLACE TO STAY on Oahu for privacy and tranquility (except for that 5AM neighbor!).
The true sunlight in this glass house is very nice and the view of the yard and ocean from the master bedroom is ideal. The enclosed porches off the bedrooms were very enjoyable for relaxing and reading.
The Farmers Market on Saturday at 8:30 is great (go early for best selection).
Story time at 10AM on Saturday at the Waialua Library is fun for the kids.
We LOVE NORTH SHORE and Waialua/Mokuleia.
The plumbing in the...
The plumbing in the house was not in good working order. We had to have someone out to fix the kitchen faucet because the water wasn't coming out of it at all. One on sinks upstairs in MB had pressure problems as well. Although the property was beautiful the fruit trees left a mess all over the entrance and outside decks. We could not get the hottub to heat up. Had to call management company to have the gas tank filled on the barbecue as it was empty. It took 2 days to get the gas for the cue but the plumber responded quickly. You can't argue with the setting and it did help you overlook other short comings. The beach was lovely!
We LOVED this place and can't wait to go back!
The Wave House was great! We have young children and loved the grassy backyard for them to play in as well as all the beach stuff the house had already at it for us to borrow! It even had bikes for us to ride. The home was very clean and the kitchen was stocked with everything but groceries so you could easily prepare snakes and meals if you wanted too. The best part was the views and sound of the ocean you can hear all day and night! When I show friends photos of our trip, everry one asks wow how did you get to stay "There", was it really expensive? For all that you get we felt to price was very fair! When we go to Hawaii again we would stay here again, it was truely a great and wonderful experience.
San Antonio, TX
An awesome home to rent for a vacation!
Overall very, very satisified with the house. Just a few minor items, a few of the light bulbs were burnt out, the 2nd bedroom a/c remote was inop and the unpstairs tv kept turning off, i don't know if it was the cable or the tv itself. Also the the right burner on the grill would not light up, but these were very little items that didn't bother our stay at all. Just a few items to address for the next family that stays. My family and I loved the house and we would absolutely rent that home again.

Had a great time. House was beautiful. Beach was relaxing.
Cameron Park, CA
Wave House 2007
We had a wonderful memorable stay. Loved the house and the location. I did find some items missing such as keys and cleaning supplies. The cleaning supplies became an issue when we were asked to let the house be shown to an agent. The second garage door opener didn't work. Not big items, but given how the contract read I did worry that we might be charged for the missing keys. The missing keys also meant that we all had to stay together or be back to let the rest of us in. All in all we would ablsolutely do it again.
Home is perfectly situated right on the beach. It is a real stand-out property. Very modern, funky design, but very comfortable and practical as well. Everything related to the home was wonderful. Would definitely recommend.
Calgary, Alberta, Canada
A wonderful holiday
We loved our stay at the Wave House- the beach, the private yard, the sea turtles, the home and all of its amenities incl the washer/dryer (A King bed in the second bedroom would be great.) We hope we can return again someday.

Amazing House in the Best Location
Love love love the house, location and what this has to offer, which is why we cannot wait to go back in less than 5 days from submitting this review; Amanda at HBHomes is super helpful and sincerly accomodating, love her! My only gripe is that the actual condition of the property itself was not spotless, it was clean, don't get me wrong - but at the minimal, i.e., lanai outside of master bedroom specifically by the windows had debris surrounding parameters; lanai outside of 2nd bedroom was not broomswept; cabana leading to private beach was totally not clean and we had to hose this off, shower in cabana was something i would never feel comfortable using so we skipped using this, period; hot-tub was def. something i would never get into, nice feature if it was completely clean and pristine, but did not feel comfortable w/ condition; other than that, we love the house and location of this property, love the privacy it has to offer. Additional issue was there as per check-in instructions, there was only 1 remote to garage instead of 2, and the only 1 remote was BROKEN, so they had to send a handyman to fix it, who was completely on the shady side and asked us for a tip or if we had any cash, which made us feel uncomfortable; the pool guy showed up randomly while we were napping in the master, so we had no idea at all of his schedule or that he was arriving. These are things I will address upon check-in and review of the house when we arrive, those 2 factors really bothered me more than the cleanliness aforementioned, but we return to renting this property b/c it is a fantastic house on a fantastic location...could def. be better if those issues were addressed.
The house overall was AWESOME, beautiful view, gorgeous location, every amenity - the cleaning crew wasn't - the house was dirty and dead bugs were everywhere - when we notified the property manager, they responded immediately and quickly resolved the issue.
