Kawela apartment description

State of Hawaii Transit Accommodation Registration: W00122118-01.

Recommended by and listed in Lonely Planet Guides: Hawaii - 6th edition, April, 2003
Oahu - 1st edition, March 2000

Our house is located on the north shore of Oahu, less than two miles west of Sunset Beach, the world famous surfing beach, and about one and a half miles west of Backyards (Velzyland), which is an equally well-known windsurfing site. A lesser known and uncrowded surfing area is offshore from our property. We are directly on the ocean, with year-round sunsets, and whales passing by during the winter months. The house sits on a flat, rocky reef, with sandy beaches a very short walking distance to the left and to the right. An offshore reef protects us from the pounding waves, and provides safe swimming and snorkeling. Honolulu is a one-hour drive away, but we are also directly on the bus line.

The vacation unit is in a separate wing of the main house and has its own private entrance. It shares a large deck and a large patio, both overlooking the water, with tables, lounge chairs, and a small charcoal barbecue. It is an upstairs-downstairs arrangement, with a large, airy bedroom upstairs, and a small sitting room and bath (combined tub and shower) below. Both rooms have ocean views.

An inclined ladder-staircase leads to the bedroom (please see photo), which contains a king-size bed, a chest of drawers, and hang-up space.

The downstairs sitting room contains a couch and a TV (cable/44 channels). There is NO KITCHEN OR STOVE, but the downstairs room has a small refrigerator, a microwave, single burner hot plate, coffee maker, toaster, and small, fold-away TV tables. There are also dishes and utensils, adequate for light cooking, using the bathroom sink for cleanup. We also have a washing machine and dryer available for guest use. As with many other ocean front homes on the North Shore, we are located on the around-island highway, so there is some vehicle noise in the bedroom at certain times. It is not heard in the sitting room or on the deck. Because of the possible hazard with the inclined staircase and the steep deck stairs (see photos), we cannot accept small children.

We require a five night minimum stay.

                  We are less than 2 miles from world-famous Sunset Beach, and from the Turtle Bay Resort's fine beaches and two golf courses. A new 1,100 acre state park provides many miles of forested trails for hikers and mountain bikers, less than 4 miles away. The nearby Polynesian Cultural Center and Waimea Valley Cultural Park are first class tourist attractions.
