Its December! For many of us realtor/surfer types, that means monster surf and booked solid vacation rentals! The colossal waves have already started smashing onto the shores of Haleiwa, and those lucky guys who have turned surfing into a career have started to rip it up out in the water at the Reef Hawaiian Pro. Most of these wave riders stay on an exclusive strip of sand on a road called Ke Nui. Right now there are 3 available homes for sale on that street and a total of 14 “for sale” properties on the sandy shores of Haleiwa. See those listings here: NORTH SHORE HOMES FOR SALE . For those who want to own a piece of property in Hawaii but want to stay out of Waikiki, the north shore is a great compromise of the two. Big waves bring big crowds and many enjoy taking the whole family out to the north shore as part of their family vacation. On the off season, the North shore provides serene swimming and snorkeling for locals and visitors alike. Land owner Kamehameha Schools has also started redevelopment of Haleiwa town, making room for more shops and restaurants.
