Surf into North Shore living

It’s not well known to townies, but many North Shore residents know that Wehiwa Place is a cul de sac that offers privacy away from the tourist traffic in Haleiwa. This new listing provides the peace and quiet that many people move to the country to enjoy. (Click here for more information.)

Many North Shore homes, even the most expensive beachfront properties, experience noise due to constant traffic from Kamehameha Highway. This one, however, is off the main road with no loud cars driving by and no neighbors in the back.

It’s still a short walk to the world-famous, world-class surf breaks that fit various levels of surfing skills. Since the home has an ocean view, you can see the conditions before going out for a session at any of these surf spots:

  • Freddyland (perfect for beginners)
  • Velzyland (the most perfectly shaped wave)
  • Sunset (the biggest wave)

If you want to "live the dream" of being a North Shore surfer, you can start here and work your way up from Freddyland to Sunset.

Living here isn’t too shabby, either—high, open-beamed cedar wood ceilings give this home a warm, open feeling; the use of wood for ceiling, countertops, and the floor adds to the casual ambiance. This large, 2,032-square-foot home features four bedrooms, 2.5 baths, new laminate flooring, and new appliances, with a 190-square-foot covered lanai for taking in the sunset and ocean views. The design is fairly modern, considering that it was built in the 1980s.

The lower floor of the unit has its own full bathroom and kitchenette, allowing flexibility for a tenant, extra family, or guests.
