Sunset Beach house description

HALE LUANA is the ideal destination on O'ahu's North Shore for those who value privacy, quiet relaxation, comfort and security. Tucked in against the side of a steep, high hill, inside a coded security gate on tastefully landscaped grounds of almost three acres, mornings are filled with the sound of birds and evenings with the sound of wind and the ocean.

The calendar blocked out dates are for dates when both units are rented, if the dates aren't blocked, at least one of the two accommodations (or possibly both) are available.
There is no security/damage deposit fee. Damage and loss is to be accounted for using the honor system, informing the caretaker.

Both the suite and studio have panoramic ocean views, quality king size beds, 380 count cotton bed linen, tropical weight down comforters, Egyptian cotton bath and pool towels, 32' flat screen cable HDTV with premier movie and music channels, wireless high speed internet access ('free wi-fi') and telephones (party line with distinctive ring and on/off switches) with unlimited local,mainland and Canada calling. Essentials are provided: Nexus shampoo and conditioner, Neutrogena shower and bath gel, Q-tips and hair dryers.
There are 3 bicycles with chains and locks, 3 sets of snorkels, masks and fins for adults, 2 sets for children,6 boogie boards, 4 surf boards (for experienced surfers only!), 5 coolers, 6 beach chairs and 2 umbrellas, a large assortment of pool floats for toddlers to adults and 1 child's safety vest for the ocean, 1 for the pool. Pool towels may be taken to the beach.
Both units are supplied with all paper goods, clear wrap and foil, large and small ziplock bags, pepper and salt grinders, good quality plates, bowls and mugs, to-go mugs, s/s flatware, propane for the BBQ's.

A caretaker/groundskeeper lives on the top floor (enters in the evening, exits in the morning) through the suite's kitchen door - 8 steps to her stairs), is available by cell phone to answer any questions about your accommodations, where to eat, how to schedule a massage, hula lessons, arrange for private catering, surf and scuba lessons, hikes, the best luau, catamaran sailing, etc.. Private photographic helicopter charters on O'ahu and to outer islands can be a memorable part of your vacation.

Hale Luana is approximately 9 miles from Haleiwa, a 3 minute drive to Sunset Beach and a five minute drive to Turtle Bay Resort (great dinners at 3 good restaurants, a golf course designed by Arnold Palmer and a sheltered beach to be enjoyed when the waves are too big). Winter provides the best view of Sunset Beach and Sunset Point, whales and surf. Summer is when those who aren't experienced surfers can enjoy the water- swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving.

In the winter there is a sheltered beach 5 minutes away by car and there are: sky diving and helicopter rides, horseback riding, hiking and more, year-round. Waimea Valley (directly across from Waimea Bay) is 10 minutes away and the Polynesian Cultural center is 20 minutes away.


THE SUNSET STUDIO: A large (25' x 14') main room with 3 glass walls (hillside garden on two sides, ocean view at the side, front and from the bed), a hallway to the laundry alcove and the bathroom (with shower). There's an outdoor gas grill (with a burner) and the kitchenette is newly installed; granite counter with 2 glass-top invection units, s/s cookware, a large microwave (microwave cookware), 4 slice toaster, blender, rice cooker, hot pot, coffee grinder, French press, espresso and coffee maker. New photos are not yet posted, available upon request. The TV has an adapter that allows you to watch DVD's using your laptop. There's a portable unit with speakers to play iPods and iPhones.

There's an under the counter refrigerator and another chilled compartment under the filtered water cooler. The bed is a pillow-top king size and the futon couch converts to a queen size bed. This space has been enjoyed by honeymooners, couples with and without children and 3 to 4 young adults traveling together. What guests staying here have said is 'it's been our own private world'.

THE SUNSET SUITE: Staying in the suite includes exclusive use of the living room, fully equipped gourmet kitchen, dining area and the deck. The suite bedroom is a corner room with a sliding door to the ocean facing deck. There's a CD library and an adapter for an iPod. There's also a portable player with speakers for iPods and iPhones. Ocean view from both the side and front of the bedroom, with sliding door/screen to the deck. The bed is king size and comfortable.
The suite is not 'small child friendly'; infants and older children are most welcome. (Parents with walking babies, toddlers, small children stay in the studio.)
On the same floor as the suite is the office/library. There is a door to the office from the rear deck for the caretaker to use (rarely - only when there's a cable related problem and access to the modem is needed) and a door between the kitchen and dining areas to go upstairs to her quarters. She's sensitive to the issue of privacy and makes herself scarce after showing you where everything is. (Note: To accommodate more than 1 or 2 guests in the suite. there's a queen size bed in the office. It is available @ 40. per day for 1, or 60. per day for 2.) There's a second washer and dryer for the use of suite guests. Guests staying here have enjoyed waking, saying they feel as though they found a home away from home, only better, and always hoping to return.
(For guests traveling with infants or babies, there is a port-a-crib with sheets, blankets and mobile, floor play mat/infant 'gym', floor seat, 2 strollers, a Pack 'n Play with sheets, a bathinette, a high chair and a diaper bag to take to the beach.)
At the pool there are 4 chaise lounges, 1 table with 6 chairs and an umbrella and 1 table with 2 chairs. The Jacuzzi runs 24/7 and has a hydraulic lift for the top.

The caretaker can make reservations for massages ($85), private hula lessons, bicycle rentals (if additional ones are needed), catered meals and chartered helicopter rides, etc., if you make arrangements in advance.
Please note that the calendar only reflects when both units are rented. Mahalo.
