Recent Punaluu property reviews

  • Can't wait to get back to the North Shore!

    "What a great stay. This unit is on an almost secluded beach. We kept track and the most people we ever shared "our" beach with was 5. We saw a woman training a horse one morning, tons of little crabs, and a great place to swim. The building is older, I would even describe it as a bit run down but the unit is really, really nice. Even though the building is showing its age, there were people doing maintenance or cleaning outside every single day. The apartment has literally everything you need. The washer/dryer was awesome to dry our swimsuits everyday. There is a full kitchen with every possible cooking utensil you can think of. We happened to be there on a very, very hot week. It would have been nice to have central air but with the windows open and the fans going it was fine. We did hear some noise from the neighbors upstairs but it wasn't a big deal. There are two markets within a 3-6 minute walk from the unit. Be sure to check out Too Bald Guys, awesome. If you drive the other direction there is a grocery store not to far. Be sure to check out Papa Ole's. Emmanuel was great, you have to read the directions, he tells you absolutely everything you need to know. We got up every morning at 5AM to see the sun rise, amazing. I can't wait to return!"

  • Great Tropical Ocean Front Beach House

    "Great house, great location, easy access to north shore, and easy access to south shore via quick routes to highways. Hated all the crowds in Honolulu and Waikiki. Loved the quiet peace of punaluu and north shore. Surfed at sunset beach, ate at sharks cove and hilawaia. Swam with sea turtles at laniakai. Defiantly great place to stay and wonderful person to deal with. Also on another note there was traffic on the highway but anywhere you stay on the island on the beach you are going to hear the traffic. It didn't bother us and the bushes and trees out front help keep the house more private and quiet. Thanks again. Armas Family (Eugene, Oregon)"

  • Ideal location for a relaxing vacation

    "We spent 9 nights here and enjoyed our stay. The place was very clean and the owners were very accommodating. Watching the sun rise thru the palm trees was spectacular. Bring binoculars! Other family members rented units on Floor 1 & 3. I have to say that Floor 4 definitely had the best view. The beach/pool combination was great. The protected beach had just enough waves for my 8 year old and her cousins (2,7,9) to play in the waves without getting smashed into the shore. We were out swimming during the day Hurricane Iselle passed and the beach felt safe. The condo building had lounge chairs and tables with umbrellas. The unit was fully stocked. We had all the kitchen gadgets we could think of, sand toys, beach towels, boogie boards and all the necessities for a little one (portable crib, high chair, etc). My one complaint is that the pullout sofa is still broken. It may have been my misunderstanding of the ad, but I believed it was going to be fixed. I do not believe the place could sleep 5 people comfortably unless 3 of the people are small children."

  • K & E

    "We are just back from a fantastic stay on Oahu, including 4 days here. We loved the view, the sounds of the waves and palm trees, the steady breezes, being steps from the beach (saw a turtle close to shore, a moray eel, and small fish when we went out a good ways snorkeling), and the proximity to the Pupukea and Haleiwa. We hated to leave! Made good use of the kitchen for eating in and packing picnics; it's great to have a stove, not just a microwave like many places. Didn't use the outdoor shared grills but saw others enjoying them. Would happily return and strongly recommend!"

Punaluu Travel Tips

Get Your Slice of Heaven: Punaluu Vacation Rentals

Punaluu vacation rentals are located in a relatively quiet and thinly populated area on the North Shore of Oahu. There is, however, a year round population of green sea turtles on Punaluu beach, which is quite distinct as it is a black sand beach. There are also nearby marshlands that are home to exotic species of birds. Solitude, sea turtles, black sand beaches, and gorgeous birds: this may truly be a slice of heaven.

Punaluu Vacation Rentals Offer the Perfect Private Getaway

For people who lead busy lives and spend many of their days working with many other people and interacting with groups of people, solitude is sometimes the best treat. Punaluu vacation rentals can offer solitude and peace to the weary. In fact, the town only has one small commercial center. Otherwise, the area is quiet with few people but a great deal of wonderful nature to appreciate. Punaluu vacation rentals come in all sizes, for people who just want to get away by themselves as well as people who are traveling in larger groups.

Punaluu Condos: Perfect 'for Medium and Small Travel Groups'

Not everyone needs to stay in one of the big, sprawling North Shore Oahu beach rentals. Punaluu condos are great for groups of two to five people. They are usually perfect for couples and smaller families. Sometimes, couples vacationing together will rent adjacent Punaluu condos instead of splitting North Shore Oahu beach rentals.

For larger groups, there are much bigger North Shore Oahu beach rentals that can comfortably sleep over one dozen people. This larger size is best for big families, large traveling groups, and family reunions. For people who need even more space, it is sometimes possible to rent large adjacent houses that can accommodate numerous branches of the family.
