Punaluu condo description

If you are looking to get away from the hustle and bustle from the tourist crowds, this is the place to vacation. There are no crowds, no malls, and no stress. Instead you will find smiles, wide open spaces, and a calm ocean perfect for swimming and snorkeling with a sandy beach; often times completely deserted. Rediscover that a day still has 24 hours.

After a day of hiking, snorkeling or touring, come back to your tropical home away from home.

PARADISE BY THE SEA offers a unique and truly authentic Hawaiian experience. This beachfront Condo has one of the most incredible ocean views on the island, with spectacular sunrises and a breathtaking moonrise over the Blue Pacific. Take a refreshing dip in our oceanfront swimming pool and a leisurely stroll along the coast and enjoy the forever views of the glorious Blue Pacific. Swim with the turtles or snorkel alongside the tropical fish on a beach that is reef-protected with calm waters that are almost always perfect.

In the winter months, sit on your private lanai and watch the whales frolic, while the morning mist lifts gently over the mountains, never too cold a day to swim in Hawaii Nei. At day’s end, relax with a movie from our extensive video library while enjoying the gentle tradewinds at PARADISE BY THE SEA.

We are located on a tropical white pristine beach on the North Shore of Oahu, in the coastal town of Punalu’u approximately 30 miles from Honolulu and the hustle and bustle of Waikiki, and minutes from the Polynesian Cultural Center, Turtle Bay Golf Course and World Famous Surfing Beaches.

Located in a nine-story condominium complex, this is a newly renovated, beautifully appointed, one bedroom (sleeps 2-5 people) one bath, oceanfront condo, with an unobstructed ocean view, decorated in Hawaiiana motif. Located on the sixth floor with a private lanai and incredible views, gentle trade winds and the sound of surf right outside your door.

This condo is fully furnished, with a fully-equipped gourmet kitchen, ceramic tile floors, granite countertops and stainless appliances. The condo is in a secured building with a keyed entrance to stairways and elevators with free assigned on site parking and free Wifi.

Public transportation 'THE BUS' stops directly in front of condo.

                      We are located on a tropical white pristine beach on the North Shore of Oahu, in the coastal town of Punalu’u, minutes away from the Polynesian Cultural Center, Turtle Bay Golf Course and World Famous Surfing Beaches. Drive 25 minutes along the northern coastal scenic route and enter the famous North Shore and Historic Haleiwa, filled with local style and country ambiance as well as cool surf shops and boutiques, understated restaurants and charming art galleries.

                      Here you’ll find surfers fueling up at the restaurants in its plantation era buildings before hitting the famous beaches of Waimea Bay, Ehukai (Banzai Pipeline) and Sunset Beach.

                      Take the southern route and we are approximately 25 minutes from Kaneohe, a town with a number of restaurants, a mall, two shopping centers, and two multiplex cinemas.

                      Year Purchased: 2004

                      About the owner: Betty, born and reared in Kailua, Hawaii (retired banker) Richard (licensed contractor) hails from Illinois and has been President of the Condo association since 2005. Betty is the Condo Treasurer.

                      Why the Owner Chose Punaluu:
                      As a child, Betty spend time on the North Shore and has fond memories of the days gone by. For Richard, it was love at first sight when he gazed at the beautiful secluded pristine beach. We purchased our condo in 2004, gutted, renovated, and remodeled it with lots of TLC, and lived there for three years while Richard built our home in Kaneohe.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      Beautiful, secluded safe beach, white sands, can walk for miles, great snorkeling and swimming in a reef protected area. Best place to rest, relax and unwind and realize there is actually 24 hours in a day!
