Paradise is BEACHFRONT on the Northeast Shore/Ka‘a’awa
This is Hawaii as you dreamed… this spectacular oceanfront Polynesian cottage must be seen to be believed. Located between Turtle Bay Resort and Kaneohe Bay on the northeast shore of Oahu this stretch of pristine white sand beach is enfolded in the arms of the Koolau Mountain range, and stretches 300 feet before you reach another home.
This home was completely rebuilt, a beautifully appointed one bedroom, one bath plantation style home features a sliding, stacking door system that opens the front of the home to the dining deck that is inches from the sea. The tropical living area is enhanced by an attractive woven bamboo ceiling and ceiling fans. Take a moonlight swim and shower in comfort in our outdoor hot water shower, under the stars.
There is one double pune'e (Hawaiian style sofa/sleeping daybed) and a single pune'e in the living area, and a king in the bedroom complete with feather bed for maximum comfort.
All linens for the kitchen, bedroom, bath and beach are supplied as well as a nice compliment of amenities. There is a separate laundry room with a washer/dryer on the property for your use.
The fully equipped kitchen has beautiful granite countertops, nice appliances, and is fully stocked with cooking, serving and kitchen aids as well as spices and general use refrigerator items.
The view from the deck is a sight to behold through the coconut trees to one of Oahu’s most identifiable historic landmarks, Chinaman’s Hat Island. This site is where the great Polynesian Voyaging canoe, Hokule'a, was first launched in 1976, proving that the Polynesians did indeed navigate by the stars from the South Pacific, first reaching the Sandwich Islands (Hawaii) from over 2400 miles around 400 AD. It is customary for Hawaiian Warriors to dip their oars when passing their Ali'i (kings) buried high above in the magnificent K'o'olau Mountains.
Can we describe our beach that stretches the length of a football field in one direction and in the other you can walk several miles through Kualoa State Park to the site of a huge ancient Hawaiian fishpond. Watch spectacular sunrises from the deck, sunbathe on the beach or watch the divers and fishermen and perhaps try your hand at “catching dinner local style”. You can see turtles, rays and the occasional surfer from the deck or snorkel in our coral preserve.
Right in front of the house is a lovely 'menehune' fish pond which is a delight to everyone, especially to the little ones at low tide.
The atmosphere is country, but you are close to restaurants and conveniences, and 30 minutes from Honolulu. Located minutes away from world famous North Shore attractions such as the Hauula hiking trails, the Polynesian Cultural Center, Turtle Bay Resort and Golf Course, Sunset Beach, Waimea Bay and some of the last unspoiled Hawaiian style towns on Oahu. A little inside information for you golfers … the nearby Kuhuku Golf Course where half the holes on this municipal course have an ocean view starts at $20 for green fees and it goes down from there!
Directly across the street is the 4,000 acre, magnificent Kualoa horse ranch offering ziplining, horseback trail rides, jungle tours ,movie set tours, catamaran rides and Paniolo (Hawaiian) BBQ’s, or just visit the beautiful horses at your back door. The ranch has been the site of many movies including 'Jerrasic Park' and 'King Kong' and Lost.
As with many oceanfront homes, the road that circles the island is located behind the house and may provide some traffic noise at different times of the day. We apologize but PARADISE IS PARADISE and lives in the hearts and minds of all of you who have a dream...

Sheltered fishpond is located directly in front of the home. We know your kids will enjoy the calm waters of Kualoa. Kualoa is protected by an outer reef shelf 200 yards from shore. Deep Pacific ocean swells break on the outer reef, disipate their energy and then gently lapse on Kualoa's shoreline....moreless

About the owner: I am a Keiki O Ka Aina, translated as a child of this land as my ancestories migrated here from the South Pacific centries ago and became the first native people. I have a history with this unimaginably beautiful site as my Grandfather and Great grandfather before him fished here.
The feeling of PARADISE is ohana(family)beauty, music and warmth. You will almost be able to hear the sounds of my Hawaiian trio, KUALIOA (the name for this area)as we play music by the sea. You will relax, be refreshed and feel you belong here and never want to leave. Coming back will feel like coming home... E Komo Mai (Welcome)
Why the Owner Chose Kaaawa: I was driving around the island with visitors and we spotted a 'For Sale' sign on the beach. ...ONE STEP on the sand and we were awestruck by the incredible beauty of KUALOA!
The sacred legend of these mountains... Hawaiian warriors always tip their paddles as they go by KUALOA as this is where their great chiefs (Ali'i) are buried.
THIS IS THE PLACE, PARADISE!
The Unique Benefits at this House: PARADISE is located almost exactly in the center of the island, and although you are close to stores, restaurants, Kaneohe town and all the creature comforts, you are across the street from Kualoa Ranch, a 4,000 acre working cattle and excursion ranch.
K'a'a'awa is 'being in the country' for 'locals' because it has that special relaxed Hawaiian feeling. You can easily reach almost anywhere on the island from PARADISE as it is about halfway between the North Shore and Waikiki. Guests say that they have to force themselves to get out and see the sights because nothing compares to their experience in PARADISE!
