Whether you’re looking for an affordable weekend getaway with your friends or a romantic vacation to Hawaii for an anniversary, forget the major resort destinations, crowded beaches, and big towns. Instead, head away from Waikiki to Oahu’s famous north shore – an area notorious for its huge surfing competition-worthy waves in the winter and sleepy small town vibes in the summer. And while there are countless vacation rentals to be found along this gorgeous stretch of coastline, you’re sure to fall in love with this dreamy little slice of paradise found on Airbnb.
