Hauula house description

The Ehu Kai (Seaspray) Studio is located in Hale Ko’olau, a family owned and operated group of beach front vacation rental homes in Honolulu, Hawaii. Hale Ko'olau is rated 'excellent' on TripAdvisor and ranked the #1 specialty lodging in our area. Learn more on our direct website at halekoolau.com.

The Ehu Kai is direct beachfront and is completely air conditioned. This is a spacious (500+ sf living area) duplex studio, one bath rental with ceramic tile floors throughout. The Ehu Kai Kitchen & Bath were both remodeled early November 2006. The open kitchen has maple cabinetry and granite countertops, a full size sealed-top stove/range, built-in microwave, full size fridge, and all the cooking utensils you need to prepare complete meals. The kitchen opens to the living area with a convenient breakfast bar/nook. The living area is richly decorated with warm tropical & plantation style furniture and enjoys direct ocean views. There is a queen size futon with 8” mattress and teak dining table in the living area. The Ehu Kai has a queen size bed just 20 feet away from the surf. This rental enjoys cool tropical breezes year around, however there is a ceiling fan in addition to air conditioning.

Enjoy relaxing on our direct beachfront yards which overlook the blue Pacific Ocean. There is plenty of area for sunbathing on the beach or on our grassy beachside yards. Watch spectacular sunrises while soaking in one of our four hot tubs, stroll down the beach to the Hauula beach park and coral preserve for some great snorkeling and swimming or take our ocean kayaks out for some adventure. Close by are world famous North Shore attractions such as the Hauula hiking trails & preserve, Polynesian Cultural Center, Turtle Bay Resort & Golf, Brigham Young University, Sunset Beach, Waimea Bay, Kualoa Ranch and the last unspoiled 'Hawaiian' style towns on Oahu. Enjoy your Hawaii vacation directly on the beach with in our North Shore beachfront vacation homes.

All our properties are located in the fishing town of Hauula on the North Shore of Oahu near the Polynesian Cultural Center, Turtle Bay, Kualoa Ranch, and many other wonderful Oahu attractions. We are approximately 1 hour from Honolulu International Airport; where the Ko’olau Mountains touch the Pacific Ocean. Although we are “away from it all” we do have the Hauula Kai shopping center a short walk/drive away which has a large grocery store and several restaurants.

Our rural community of single family homes, small shops, and quaint restaurants is very different from the high rise retail/ tourist centers of Waikiki and Ko’olina. With hiking trails and unspoiled beaches, we offer a glimpse of the Oahu of yesteryear with convenient access to the night life and modern pleasures of Honolulu and Waikiki.

If you want to escape the crowds and discover a quieter and more peaceful alternative to the hotel and resort scene then Hale Ko’olau is perfect for you. Although our rentals are entirely self-catering we do have someone available on-site every day from 10am to 6pm to answer questions, give suggestions on where to go and what to do, or to just talk story.

We are happy to provide our guests with access to amenities such as high quality, professional grade snorkel equipment, ocean kayaks, beach & picnic equipment, and more for a nominal service fee. For more information please call us anytime at our toll free number or visit our direct website at halekoolau.com.

We have 18 different beachfront rentals to choose from. All of our rentals are located right next door to one another along the same stretch of beach, making our properties ideal for family reunions and weddings. To learn more visit our direct website at halekoolau.com.

                                We have stayed with Hale Koolau group 2 times, once in October 2012 and again in april 2013. On both occasions had a great time. We did not stay in the Ehu Kai but in 2 other condos on the property. The property is well maintained and all equipment was in working order. We did not have a leaky roof or a/Carol problem at all, and it did rain on us 1 day. Both of the condos we rent had decent size Tv's and plenty of cable channels. On the latest visit one of the many hot tubs was out of order, but other were nearby. The Bbq's are maintained and pretty much ash free. We had a blender problem which was replaced in minutes. Jeff was always willing to give advice on where to eat, and snorkel. Our condos were clean and comfortable. The 2 main problems I ever had was finding which light switch went to which light, and the shrubs in the front of the complex need to be trimmed back as it is hard to see when trying to pull out on the highway. I will be back and I will continue to stay at this beautiful spot until I get my own Hawaiian Condo/home. Thank you Hale Koolua family !!

                                I would recommend this place anytime. We had a wonderful trip and our condo was great! You could throw a rock into the ocean from our bedroom, we slept with the windows open and the sound of the waves put us to sleep. Great views and the place was clean. We'll be back.

                                The umbrella so you stay dry while sitting on the futon, and the boots so you don't slip and slide when you awake to a flooded unit after a seasonal rain. During check-in we were told the CD stereo didn't work and would be replaced the next day, but it was still there a week later when we left. We never did locate our private lanai with table and chairs, and the locked door that separates the units is not much of a sound barrier. The 10 p.m. limitation on the hot tub outside our unit did not apply, at least not while we were there. We were drawn to the location and enjoyed the view, but having stayed there now know that "warmest regards" really means buyer beware. Loved Oahu and the north coast, but will only speed up when passing Hale Ko'olau on our next trip.

                                Owner response: UPDATE 8/31/13: For anyone reading this review please also chekc our amazing reviews on our direct website and TripAdvisor. Not sure why, but many of our guests don't leave reviews on this particular site. Also, we've removed the skylight and have upgraded all our seating throughout all our rentals in June 2013. We wanted to take the time to thank this guest for his review and address some of the items he was unhappy with during his stay. The CD player was replaced by me, the general manager, myself after his complaint and apologize for the maintenance person not performing his duty correctly. He has since been replaced. Also, we have also revitalized the entire suite, starting with the new paint job throughout the entire rental, new wooden blinds to block out the sun on that day you want to sleep in, new lamps, and light fixture. Unfortunately, this gentleman did encounter a flood due to a huge rainstorm that passed over the island and we did attend to him. During these acts of nature, we can only do so much to prevent a flood after receiving 10 inches of rain in 24 hours, but he forgot to mention that we did tend to him at night after working hours to ensure he was comfortable and cleaned his unit entirely after the severe rains. We ask guests to call us with any problems, want their stay with us to be enjoyable and full of fun memories. Unfortunately, we were never contacted about the hot tub situation and there are guests who abuse and neglect the rules we have on our property for their own pleasure. I'm glad these guests enjoyed our island, and are very sorry to hear they did not enjoy their stay with us. This is a rarity, as many guests who leave feedback in our Guest book on our direct website site or in the rentals can't wait to return. But we wanted them to know that we value their feedback and because of comments, we decided to act and renew all suites. We thank them for their stay and feedback as it has helped us make our rentals better for the future stays of our guests. Mahalo nui loa!

                              About the owner: We have owned and operated these properties for two generations. We have operated as Hale Koolau LLC for nearly a decade, however prior to this change of entity we operated the business as sole proprietors, accommodating thousands of guests over the years. We have an 'excellent' rating on TripAdvisor and are ranked the #1 specialty lodging in our area.

                              Why the Owner Chose Hauula:
                              Guests who stay with us get more than just a place to sleep at night, they get their own beach house on the North Shore of Oahu. We have 450 linear feet of oceanfront property giving our guests plenty of room to lounge in the sun while being cooled down by the gentle breezes of the South Pacific Ocean. We also have four hot tubs on the property plus complimentary high-speed internet and parking. We are happy to provide our guests with access to amenities such as snorkel equipment, kayaks, beach & picnic equipment, and more for a nominal service fee. For more information please call us anytime at our toll free number or visit our direct website. Each of our units comes with full kitchens and most of them have air-conditioning. We are located four minutes from the Polynesian Cultural Center and Brigham Young University Hawaii. We are also located 20 minutes north of Kualoa Ranch and 15 minutes from Sunset Beach and the famous North Shore surfing beaches.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              Beachfront studio on the North Shore of Oahu perfect for a romantic getaway or an affordable family vacation. The beach is only 10 feet from your bed! A relaxing ocean-view hot tub awaits you just outside your door. Complimentary wi-fi and parking.
