Property description

Our beach house is located directly across from Punalu'u Beach Park. Watch sunrise with a cup of Hawaiian-grown coffee; walk along the sandy beach or take a swim to start your day. From the front area of the house you look out at gorgeous views of the beach and reef beyond. The beachfront is protected by the outer reef; so the waves are never big along the shore, there are long stretches of white sand in both directions. Two double kayaks, snorkel gear and other beach equipment are at the house for your use. The reef is approximately 1/2 mile out providing a very large safe area for exploring. If the BIG surf is of interest to you, you will find it just north (20 minutes)- mostly in the winter months.

The single-family home was built in the 1940's- she shines with her history as well as updates. The bedroom has a queen size bed and there are two large daybeds in the front section of the house. All the furniture was chosen with style as well as RELAXATION in mind. The kitchen and dining area is well equipped, but if you don't feel like cooking there are several restaurants nearby. Just down the road is Ching's Family Store with homemade local snacks, basic groceries, and a lunch wagon serving shrimp. The house has two bathrooms; the second one on the back porch is perfect for a warm shower when you come in from the beach. The backyard is lush with a goldfish pond, stream and the gardens are planted with unusual tropical plants and flowers. The back porch is a great spot to unwind, grill some dinner and plan your next day's activities.

We, the owners, live on our flower farm near Chinaman's Hat- so you will have arrangements of fresh tropical flowers in your rental. Also wanting to 'show off' some other Hawaiian grown products; you will find an array of locally grown fruits, coffee, sugar and even North Shore grown chocolate to greet you on arrival.

The house is on the windward side of Oahu so the Koolau Mountains surround you and there are hiking trails and many beautiful beaches to discover. Punalu'u is a small beach town, not a well known tourist spot, a special peaceful spot close enough to activities and tourist attractions. Kualoa Ranch is 15 minutes away offering a variety of fun activities and Polynesian Cultural Center is 15 minutes the other direction. We look forward to welcoming you to the beach house, 'E komo mai'!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1987

About the owner: Aloha Guests, My husband and I live 15 minutes towards Kaneohe from the Punalu'u House. I recently retired from the University of Hawaii, as a research biologist. My husband is a retired director of a marine laboratory and is now raising and selling numerous varieties of exotic goldfish. Our oldest son is at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in the Architecture Program and our youngest son at University of Oregon in Human Physiology. Our sons and I paddle 6-person outrigger canoes for Lanikai Canoe Club and also compete on OC-1 canoes. This is a photo of us jumping off the BIG rock at Waimea Bay - try it if you are brave!!

Why the Owner Chose Punaluu:
I bought the house 25+ years ago as a residence. I have always loved the beach and Punalu'u, with Kahana Bay just down the road is one of the most beautiful areas on Oahu. Our family grew as well as our desire to be farmers so we moved to Hakipu'u which is 2.5 acres on the water.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The BEACH!!!! Gorgeous location! Nice backyard to putter about. Cozy house with lots of comfortable furniture.
