Set on 85 feet of private, pristine white sand beach, this clean, exceptionally well-appointed home offers classic, Hawaiian country living.

With its perfect location, Hale Ho’onanea offers a full compliment of diverse activities conveniently located nearby. Experience one of the island’s best kept secrets for yourself.
Wake up early to be rewarded with a perfect Hawaiian sunrise directly in front of your private beach. Comfortable trade winds and incredible coral reefs encourage you to take in a memorable snorkel or an easy paddle in the two-person ocean kayak. Relax on the cozy lanai with your favorite book and enjoy the sounds of the exotic tropical birds and the trade winds blowing through the towering palm trees.
Just steps from the inviting Pacific Ocean, let the soothing sounds of the waves wash away any remaining stress. As the sun passes behind the majestic Ko’olau Mountains, just yards behind the house, relax in one of the beach side lounge chairs, with your favorite beverage, and toast to a perfect day at Hale Ho’onanea.
Many new upgrades abound throughout the interior of the house. Exotic, solid bamboo flooring from China was installed just over a year ago. Improvements in the kitchen include: a new glass top range, refrigerator, washer and dryer. There are new remote controlled, split air conditioning units in each bedroom, as well as two remote controlled ceiling fans, one in the family room and one in the kitchen.
Each bathroom has newly installed toilets and sink fixtures. After a fun day of play in the surf and sand, rinse off in the outdoor shower. For entertainment there is a DVD home theater with surround sound in the Family Room.
Each bedroom in Hale Ho’onanea offers a spacious, peaceful environment to relax and get a restful night’s sleep. The Master Bedroom has a pillow-top queen bed, large dresser, hanging closet, single daybed/reading couch, CD player with alarm clock and a large picture window which looks directly out to the ocean. Open the bamboo blinds before you go to bed and let the morning sunrise be your wake-up call. Close the blinds in the afternoon, set your ideal temperature with the remote controlled A/C, place a soothing Hawaiian CD in the stereo and slip blissfully into a paradise nap.
Perfect for two little ones, the “Sky” bedroom, Ke Aouli, has two single beds, two large windows looking out to the ocean and up to the mountains as well as remote controlled air conditioning.

Make reservations at a local restaurant or sign up for surfing lessons with the free, “local call” phone service. If quality time alone with the family is a must, then prepare a delicious meal in the fully stocked kitchen and eat outside on the backyard patio, just feet from the ocean. With a teak wood table and chairs, umbrella and a fire pit, enjoy a truly unique experience right along the beach.
