About the property

Luxurious Modern beachfront home with a deck and magnificent views

This architecturaly significant home has large sliding glass doors that open to a beautiful deck with stunning ocean views. The white sand beach feels very private, and it's an ideal location for peaceful walks, swimming, surfing and relaxation. The high quality architecture offers a unique experience with open, loft-like spaces, natural light, cool surfaces, custom cabinetry and an integrated chefs kitchen. The masterful design showcases nature in a fashionable and comfortable way.

The main floor consists of a living area, dining area, a well equipped kitchen and a comfortable area to watch TV. The garage and powder room are also on this floor. Two walls are made entirely of large sliding glass doors. They stack completely to the sides enabling the living space and outdoor space to become one. The beachside opens to a spacious IPE deck with tremendous views of the ocean. It is a very special place to soak up some sun, read, relax, watch seasonal humpback whales and enjoy vibrant sunsets. The other side opens to a flat lava rock patio with built in IPE benches. Another great beachside spot to relax, grill and enjoy meals together. The home and outdoor spaces are so well connected to the beach and ocean that it feels a bit like being on a boat.

An airy wood and metal staircase rises up through the main floor to the second floor bedrooms. The unique slanted roofline has large windows that capture the view of green palms, blue waves and a starlit sky at night. Each bedroom has a queen sized bed with a comfortable brooklyn bed mattress and high thread count sheets. They have generous closets and lots of drawer space. The stylish bathrooms are well appointed with good counter space and storage. And they also have beautiful oceans views!

This very special, unique and luxurious home is the perfect place to spend your vacation in Paradise. It's very centrally located to enjoy the world famous surf spots, great restaurants and shops in historic Haleiwa town and countless other North Shore activities.

About Shannon

Having grown up on Oahu, I have a deep love for Hawaii. The natural beauty, culture and community are all very unique and special. My husband grew up on the North Shore, so we really enjoy and appreciate the area. We live on Oahu with our two sons, and we take every opportunity that we can to enjoy Hale Punanue and the surrounding area.

Shannon purchased this house in 2015

Why Shannon chose Haleiwa

We were drawn to Hale Punanue because of the incredible architecture. It truly is one of a kind in Hawaii. To have such a well constructed and stylish home just steps from the sand is rare. We also love the fact that its on such a special beach that feels so private.

What makes this house unique

This home truly feels one with the beach and the ocean. Yet it still feels very private and peaceful. The modern and luxurious design makes it the perfect place to enjoy a tropical vacation.

North Shore Gem!

  • 5 of 5

It's hard to find a modern beach rental in the North Shore and so glad we did! The house is beautifully designed with sliding doors that open all the way up on 2 sides so the house seems a lot larger than it is. We had a hard time wanting to leave the house, there was no need to. Had our surfboards delivered, great local surf spot right out in front (with 2 others in walking distance), a calm swimming hole just a short walk and you couldn't get a better view while lounging in the beanbag deck chairs or dining in with the house opened up.

We had 5 people stay, 2 couples and one teen. There was plenty of room, our teen ended up sleeping on the large sectional in the living room which was fine for him although the house is supplied with 2 airbeds and plenty of linens. The house a little bit more furniture than in the photos which was good, all comfortable and go with the rest of the decor.

The owner was also very attentive, checking in to make sure all was going well and we had no questions. They came by when we first got there just to show us some things about the house that we may not be familiar with.

The pictures do not do this home justice.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this Haleiwa home was a wonderful experience. The pictures on line do not fully depict its fabulous design or how close to the water the home is. The deck has an unobstructed view to the water. When you walk down the beach looking at the other homes, no home seems as close to the beach as this one. You are literally 10 steps down the stairs to the sand! The floor to ceiling windows open completely which brings the outside in making the home feel more like a houseboat . The home was very clean and linens and towels seemed to be new. It had all the essentials and was well stocked. The owner left us a very generous gift basket with quite a few snack choices and even some Champagne! She was quickly responsive in answering any questions that we may have had and checked on us to offer to share wonderful suggestions for fun local activities.The house was conveniently located, close to the small and charming yet casual town of Haleiwa. This vacation was meant as a trip for my husband and I to relax and unwind. We really just wanted to stay at the house and enjoy its location, views and the beach! We miss it already.....I would definitely rent this house again.

Heaven On Earth!

  • 5 of 5

Perfection on all levels! The house is immaculate, the views are unparalleled, the white sand beach out front is secluded & the new "infinity" deck puts the entire experience completely over the top. Our first night, we had dinner on the deck & felt like we were Hawaiian royalty dining at our very own private beachfront palace. Words can't describe how amazing the experience of staying here is, so you'll just have to rent the house & find out for yourself. If you do rent this home, I can assure that you won't be disappointed!

Best of the Best

  • 5 of 5

My wife is from Hawaii. We live on the West Coast, and we try to get back to Hawaii for 1-2 weeks every year. We have stayed on every Island and most of the top Hotels. We started renting houses on some of our trips about 5 yrs ago. We really enjoy being on or near quality Beaches and a great town. Hanalei and Kailua were 2 of our favorite past stays. The issue for us with Houses has always been if you can find a great location, the house is either a very large, expensive house or not a quality house. We just completed our favorite stay ever here. The house is not large. 2,000 sq ft maybe but feels perfect for 1-2 couples. It is REALLY open, you feel like you are in a boat right on the ocean. We know of the Seattle architect that designed this house and it really does feel like you are on a house boat. The beach has very few people. The ocean is incredible here ... every shade of blue imaginable. The ocean/surf was a little rough right in front a few of the days. And there are some rocks in the water. But we walked a few min down to the lifeguard tower and he directed us 5-10 min in either direction and you can find calm waters if the surf is big. For us, the privacy, serenity and design of this house and location was a no brainer. If you are not into design, have a big group, or want to be in the party scene this is not the house/place for you. Haleiwa town is really close and quaint, but shuts down early. We went to downtown honolulu one night to meet some friends... it was a 30min drive. Waikiki is a 45 min Drive. If you wanted to do that often, I don't think I'd stay here. The road is very close to the houses on this stretch, put this particular house is really insulated well. The Manager was very kind and patient as we worked out the dates of our stay. We hope this is a place we can return to every year. Incredibly well designed Modern Home, right on an incredible and private beach near the Charming Town of Haleiwa. PERFECT for us.

Owner's Response: I think you summed up the Hale Punanue experience pretty perfectly in your beaming review! We're so glad you enjoyed your stay & all that the home has to offer & are especially happy to hear you enjoyed the architectural design aspects of this completely unique home. I haven't been able to find another 2 bedroom home that's nearly as luxurious as this one, not only here on O'ahu, but anywhere in Hawai'i. We'll keep the house in top shape so you can enjoy it just as much on your next visit, which will hopefully be very soon. Until then.... Mahalo nui loa & a hui hou! (translation = thank you very much & until we meet again)

My wife and 2 kids really enjoyed staying at the Hale Punanue beach house. Its more like a resort on the beach then a house. Everything is in top shape and styling to the core. The bedrooms feel like your sailing on the ocean with views to die for. The beach is pretty much all to your self and the there is an amazing pond area for the kids to play in when there is any surf. I would highly recommend this home if your looking for the best of the best. Really enjoyed showing up to a nice gift basket with Hawaiian coffee, local cookies, macnuts and more.
