Large resorts have their perks, but if you're looking for peace and privacy while visiting Oahu and the North Shore, change it up by opting for a private vacation rental, specifically a gorgeous Indonesian estate located right across from Three Tables Beach and close to Shark's Cove, Ke Iki Beach and many other wonderful North Shore beaches, attractions and sights.

While there are many vacation rentals on www.VRBO.com, a popular site to find private homes to rent in and around Honolulu, a stand out rental is an Indonesian estate pole house. A roughly 30 minute drive from Honolulu, it's located right across from Three Tables beach, a very short walk to Waimea Bay and Waimea Valley, and conveniently located next to Foodland, and eateries like Pupukea Grill and Shark's Cove Grill.

The home sleeps six, and allows the fresh Hawaiian air to flow freely with an open beam ceiling. A full wrap around porch offers the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors all day long, and a washer and dryer makes staying here convenient. There's a tiki bar, tiki torches, television, and the usual amenities all on site to make you feel right at home. While nearby resorts range from $300 a night an up for just one or two beds, you can sleep six here for $325 a night or $450 a night during the high surf winter season.
