This is my family's home. My mother lives in the separate main house. Since I live in Texas, and use the 'Keiki Hale' (children's house) just a few weeks a year, we rent it out for short-term vacations. This property will always stay in my family as my husband and I plan to retire here and my kids love it. You will, too.
Lori purchased this House in 1962
Why Lori chose Waialua
Our beach is exceptional for its beauty and privacy. It's great for snorkeling and swimming because there's a reef that protects the beach. We live on a private residential street that is quiet (except for the occasional wild chickens).
What makes this House unique
This is the place for you if you want to sit and read on the beach or be more active. You can hike at Kaena Point, walk and jog on Crozier Dr., swim and snorkel with turtles directly in front of the house, skydive at Dillingham Air Field, watch polo on Sunday afternoons from April to September, and ride horses on oceanfront trails. Of course, you can also surf or take lessons in Haleiwa (5 miles away).

Great stay at this lovely cottage! Good location in a residential area close to Haleiwa town and north shore beaches. The property is on a beautiful beach that is perfect for swimming. The owners couldn't have been nicer! Would definitely stay here again.
We loved our stay in Waialua, and staying in Lori's cottage took center stage! It couldn't have been more perfect, and here are few of the many reasons why-- the view was amazing, the gardens and yard were lovely and restful, the house was clean and had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable, we sat on the beach eating breakfast (a highlight) and spent a few evenings gazing at the stars after enjoying a lovely fire in the fire pit. I could go on an on--it was magical and beautiful--it exceeded our expectations. We hope to return some day.
Beautiful home with amazing location to see Green sea turtle
We are a family of four with two boys age of four and seven . Being accessible to the beach is very convenient whenever the boys need a place to run around . One morning my son and I took a long walk and saw the green sea turtle and we are totally amazed. The house is self is big enough for four people and appliance in Towels and well equipped. The outdoor shower is very convenient. Overall I would recommend to anyone school enjoy a quiet time on the North Shore.
Relaxing and beautiful ocean front cottage!
We loved everything about our stay, the cottage, the grounds and the ocean as our backyard. We saw whales from the beach everyday and it was a great place to relax. We couldn't believe the view from inside the cottage or from the back porch, where we were surrounded by beautiful tropical plants and trees with an ocean view. Mahalo!
Well maintained cottage on a beautiful beach!
Quiet, private beach cottage on my favorite beach in the world! What more could you ask for? During our stay we had a horrible storm, 60 mph winds, high surf and torrential rain. The house held up to the test of the storm with no leaks or drama. We had to spend most of our time inside sadly but enjoyed playing cards and games that were there. I look forward to our next visit.
Lovely and secluded
We had a wonderful time at this little cottage. The property is on a quiet lane, with more chickens and bicyclists than cars. We had the property to ourselves and walked every morning on the beach. Excellent snorkeling for good swimmers (loads of fish!). Not that strong of a swimmer? Go to Shark's Cove a few miles away for a more protected site. We saw turtle tracks on the beach -- very cool they looked like ATV tracks. Also, very fun to watch the surfers (we were there for the higher February waves).
The cottage is well-equipped for outdoor activities with snorkeling gear, boogie boards, surf boards and a kayak. The outdoor shower was very nice for washing off after a swim or barefoot walk on the beach.
There were just two of us, but the cabin is perfect for families with a door separating the sleeping area from the open kitchen/living/dining room.
This property is located 5 miles from Historic Haleiwa town (the surfing capitol of the world). It is on a private residential road with minimal traffic, away from the congestion of Sunset Beach. The beach is protected by a reef that makes for wonderful swimming and snorkeling. We don't have the huge waves and undertow of Sunset Beach and we don't have jellyfish like at the beaches at Laie. Mokuleia is truly the best beach on Oahu.
