These bungalows are right on a beautiful, wide, and uncrowded beach, between Sharks Cove (great for snorkeling in the summer) and Pipeline (for the best pro-surfer wave-watching come winter). Ranging from basic studios to two-bedroom accommodations, each unit comes with bamboo furniture, a TV, and a full kitchen, plus its own grill. Stock up on groceries at the nearby Foodland (part of the largest locally owned supermarket chain in Hawaii). Be aware that units have no air-conditioning, but ceiling fans and North Shore breezes are usually enough to keep the air cool. Settle into one of the hammocks strung up between the palm trees overlooking the beach—this is island living.
