Property description

The Pukana La (Sunrise) is located in Hale Koolau, a family owned and operated group of beach front vacation rental homes in Honolulu, Hawaii. Hale Ko'olau is the proud recipient of the Trip Advisor 2014 Seal of Excellence. Transient Accommodations and General Excise Tax Lic. #W-94877676-01. Learn more on our direct website at halekoolau.com.

The Pukana La is a completely remodeled (2007) and updated 'Hawaiian style' cottage circa 1930s with a dramatic 'wall of windows' in the main living area overlooking the ocean and Hauula Bay. Pukana La is a fully air conditioned and spacious two bedroom, one bath duplex home with porcelain tile floors throughout. The Pukana La features a remodeled (2007) complete, modern and open kitchen with maple cabinets, granite counter tops, sealed top stove/range, dishwasher, built-in microwave, fridge, and all the cooking utensils you need to prepare complete meals. The kitchen opens to the living area with a large breakfast bar/nook and enjoys direct ocean views.

The living area is richly decorated with warm tropical and plantation style furniture and also has wrap-around breath-taking ocean views. There is a queen and a twin size futon, both with 8” mattresses, in the living room. In the dining room area the original red wood beams have been exposed and creative lighting illuminates the ceiling. The master suite has tranquil garden views and features a Sealy posturepedic pillow top queen size bed. The second bedroom also has a queen-size Sealy posturepedic pillow top bed and heavy teak and tropical furniture for an elegant feel. Both bedrooms have individually controlled air conditioning and tropical ceiling fans although they are rarely needed as this home enjoys cool tropical breezes year around. There is a separately controlled air conditioner and tropical ceiling fans in the living area as well.

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 and 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 & 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 and 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

Additional information about rental rates:

The state of Hawaii requires all rentals less than 180 days to pay Transient Accommodations Tax (TAT) which currently totals 13.962% on O'ahu. This amount is charged over the daily rent. Additional fees and services are charged a lower General Excise Tax (GET) of only 4.712%. At Hale Koolau we have low daily rental rates and add on additional fees rather have one higher daily rate which is taxed more. We do this to save you, our valued guest, nearly 10% in taxes.

Owner info

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:
A "wall of windows" makes you feel your living on a ship in this 2 bed, 1 bath circa 1930s beach cottage. Pukana La is a fully remodeled, air conditioned home with updated kitchen and bath. Step outside and enjoy the hot tub with ocean views.
