Property description

The Basics:
3 bedroom, 2 bath house... fully furnished, sleeps 8.
Fully furnished home, tastefully decorated.
Modest, comfortable home

The Beaches:
We are 6 houses from the beautiful beach coastline of Ka'a'awa
No crowds like Waikiki... enjoy both grass and white sand beaches within a short walk.

The Neighborhood:
Our house is on a quiet residential street... you can fall asleep listening to the surf at night.

Conveniently located:
* In the Ka'a'awa Valley where Jurassic Park was filmed
* The Polynesian Cultural Center is about 15 minutes away
* The world famous North Shore is about 25 minutes away
* Honolulu airport is about 40 minutes away
* Waikiki is about 45 minutes away.

The really nice thing about Ka'a'awa : ... is the peacefulness, lack of crowds and natural beauty. You can enjoy our white sand beaches without fighting your way through crowds. The water is a gorgeous blue and there's a natural reef several hundred yards off the coast that keep the waves from being too big and dangerous near the shore.

This is a great place for families or couples, not to mention that it is a great value! There are several other rental homes in Ka'a'awa which are right on or across from the beach. These properties are quite nice, but they also command much higher rental costs. When you stay at our place, you save some money and you are also a block off the main highway, which means less traffic and noise.

Ka’a’awa Weather & Climate: The windward side of Oahu has a subtropical climate with prevailing northeasterly trade winds, which are a dominant factor that governs Oahu's pleasant climate. The trade winds are consistent in summer months, and in combination with the warm temperatures gives Oahu and all of Hawaii great conditions for sailing, boating and other outdoor recreational activities. Oahu has two mountain ranges that separate the wet 'windward' side from the drier 'leeward' coast. The Ko’olau Mountains extend along the northeastern side and to the west lies the Waianae Mountains. Showers occur almost daily on the windward side, while on the leeward said, showers are light. Even on the moist windward side, showers occur most frequently during evening hours. Occasionally the trade winds shut down and it can become hot and humid. It is rare, however, for weather to become severe enough to interfere with outdoor plans

Ka’a’awa is located on the windward side of Oahu, near Kahana Bay and Kaoio Point.

This area of Oahu has been described as being “where the Ko’olau Mountains meet the sea.” Ka’a’awa, being on the “windward” side of the island, has some of the best surfing on the islands. Snorkeling and diving are also available in the area, and the sandbars at nearby Kaneohe Beach Park make a very nice spot for easy swimming. Ka’a’awa is also just one mile from Kualoa Ranch, which is a horse ranch that offers 40 minute or 1.5 hour trail rides into the Ka’a’awa Valley. This 4,000-acre ranch also offers helicopter rides, swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, mountain biking and more. Opposite the Kualoa Ranch is Kualoa Regional Park. This long, narrow beach is bordered by grassy areas and with the grand Ko’olau Mountains in the background, makes a great place along your windward side tour to sit back and enjoy a picnic lunch. Ka’a’awa is one of the best places on Oahu to enjoy both mountain and ocean views


Owner info

Why the Owner Chose Kaaawa:
The windward side and Ka'a'awa in particular have special meaning for our 'ohana. Many of our fondest memories have taken place on these windward beaches. And we are so glad that Pono Loa has become a gathering place for our 'ohana, friends and haumana!
