North Shore Oahu and its 7-mile miracle is a true surfer’s paradise. With a tropical climate, turquoise warm water, and over a dozen epic world-class breaks to choose from, it’s no wonder this quaint stretch of countryside coast has become a world-famous surf mecca.

The house has two surf breaks right out front: Freddieland (great for beginners and intermediates) and Velzyland (advanced surfers only). Backyards and Sunset are around the corner, and it’s a short 5 – 10 minute drive to multiple other famed North Shore surf breaks like Rocky Point, Gas Chambers, Pipeline, and Off-The-Wall.

The Best Waves,
The Best Surf Experience

With our expert, friendly, and in-the-know local surf guides and coaches, our goal is to get you on the best waves every day of your trip and help take your surfing to the next level.

If you’re a beginner surfer, our surf coaches will set you up with an incredible foundation to improve your surfing as quickly as possible. For intermediate surfers, personalized in-water coaching will help you get dialed into the waves on offer, up your wave count, and help you progress faster than ever.

For advanced surfers ready to experience North Shore bombs, our surf guides will help you find the best conditions, navigate competitive lineups, and score more waves. Tow-in excursions are available.

It’s truly a luxury to go for a surf or swim in front of your place, have a quick rinse in the outdoor shower, and then sit down to a freshly cooked meal and frosty beverage on your lanai.

The laidback North Shore attracts surfers from around the globe with its 7-mile stretch of world-class surf breaks and Hawaiian country vibes. Famously known as The Seven Mile Miracle, the North Shore is legendary in the world of surfing and hosts some of the most impressive surf competitions in the world.

The North Shore exudes a serene charm, characterized by pristine beaches and a mellow tropical vibe. The area’s main town is Haleiwa, a nice little walkable surf town with local boutiques, surf shops, and restaurants.

Whether you’re looking to surf as much as possible, fill your days with activities, or simply relax and enjoy postcard-perfect beaches, the North Shore offers an unrivaled escape into paradise.

A Day in the Life

Wake up to the sound of waves and a leisurely surf check at your oceanfront villa and then meet up with your expert surf guide who will take you to the best waves for the day and your surf style.

Spend the morning surfing fun turquoise waves, then return to your villa for a hearty and delicious post-surf brunch on the outdoor lanai, soaking in breathtaking ocean views.

Spend the afternoon exploring local beaches or a nearby hike, lounging on the postcard-worthy beach in front of your villa, or taking a private yoga session and massage. Then head back to the waves for a sunset surf at the fun break in your backyard.

At the end of the day, enjoy the stunning Hawaiian sunset with your crew and some frosty beverages before indulging in yet another outstanding dinner at your villa or one of the area’s finest restaurants.

Lush Palm hosts small group surf retreats and also plans private surf trips for groups and families. Lush Palm Signature Oahu is a private surf trip designed for 4 – 8 guests. The Lush Palm Team plans, organizes, and provides support for your trip, however, this trip is self-guided and your group will have the beachfront villa to yourselves.

* Note: There is an on-site property manager, however, his unit is completely separate and has no adjoining walls to the main house. He is there for check-in and to assist you in any way during your stay. He is quiet, respectful, and inconspicuous.

Yes! Please inquire about your desired travel dates and we’ll look at availability. If this house isn’t available, we have many other beautiful villa options on the North Shore, so we can provide the same experience at another wonderful property.

For the following set travel dates in October, the trips are available for 6 nights or 13 nights at this exact villa:

September 28 – October 4, 2024
October 5 – 11, 2024
October 12 – 18, 2024
October 19 – 25, 2024

However, we have many other beautiful villa options on the North Shore, so we can look into availability at other villas for other trip lengths. Please inquire with your desired travel dates and we’ll be happy to plan a trip for you with alternate dates.

Yes! The North Shore is a wonderful location for a family vacation – there are lots of fun activities for kids and we can organize fantastic surf lessons for kids. And if you’re traveling with young children, we’ll let you know all about the best beaches with calm safe waters to play in.

This beachfront villa is also a fantastic location for kids with a grassy lawn to play on, and a sandy beach right out front with great swimming spots (even when there are waves elsewhere). There is also a pack ’n play/travel crib and a high chair.

Absolutely, YES! We welcome beginner surfers – whether you’ve taken 2 lessons or have never touched a surfboard in your life. We believe that surf trips with skilled surf coaches are the best way to build a solid foundation to learn how to surf. We’d love to help you get started on your surfing journey (and have a blast along the way).

The only real requirement for safety reasons is that you need to know how to swim.

While many of the most famous surf breaks in the area are for advanced surfers only,
there are multiple really fun breaks suitable for beginners and intermediates. October is one of the best months on the North Shore for beginner and intermediate surfers, as it’s a transitional time at the start of the surf season.

You can expect foodie-approved delicious and nutritious meals by our team of private chefs. The menu strikes a balance between fresh hearty eats to power your surf sessions, to more indulgent savory dishes.

Meat, fish, dairy, eggs, and desserts are all on the menu. That said, we’re happy to accommodate dietary restrictions and food allergies (see the next question below).

We’ve created a wonderful menu with our chefs, however, you can review the menus before your trip and we can make any changes according to your group’s tastes.

Yes! Our talented chefs are happy to accommodate dietary restrictions and food allergies. We can accommodate pescatarian, vegetarian, and vegan diets.
