For our traveling as singles guests we offer two distinctly separate sleeping areas, both with high quality queen-size beds. Take your choice of sleeping in our Sakura Room, decorated in the tradition of the Japanese card game, or in the oceanfront living room where you can fall asleep to the sound of the waves on the beach below.

Our beachfront condo has been equipped with luxurious amenities to provide our guests with total comfort and relaxation. Among our amenities: Air-Conditioning, 2 flat screen TVs with a 32' HDTV in the main living area, DVR so you don't miss your favorite programs while you are out sight-seeing, HBO, WiFi, iPod dock, ultra-comfortable motion couch, a beach-side fresh water swimming pool, a year-around white sand swimming beach with great snorkeling, and beautiful, tropical surroundings.

This condo has been designed and furnished to offer the maximum in comfort and luxury to our guests. This is a great choice for those seeking a luxuriously furnished beachfront accommodation. Our location is away from the crowds of Waikiki, in beautiful, low-key, lush and tropical Punalu`u.

For added value, we have taken into consideration some of the hidden costs that might be overlooked by our vacationers, especially in Hawaii, where prices for staples can be overwhelming. Stocking your newly arrived to rental with 'basics' can really add up. For this reason, we supply our rental with TP, paper towels, trash bags, foil, plastic wrap, full-size soaps, laundry softener and detergent, dish soap, a nice selection of herbs and spices, coffee filters, and many other essential every-day items that you would normally need to purchase on your own. We offer free Wi-Fi and free parking. We limit occupancy to 2 so that guests experience a comfortable, quality experience.

Why Chris and Beth Cronk chose Hauula

I grew up on Oahu and always loved coming out to Punalu`u. To this day, Punalu`u has managed to maintain that 'Old Hawaii' feel that so many visitors hope to find. We purchased this condo in order to comfortably accommodate friends and relatives that visit us in Hawaii. We outfitted it luxuriously, with our family, friends and visitors maximum comfort in mind. You'll have many choices for units at Pats, but we feel ours is one of the best!

What makes this condo unique

Our guests have commented about how well designed and well-equipped the condo is, and all have enjoyed staying here. The beach rarely has more than a handful of people on it, the snorkeling is great, and the sandy swimming beach right in front of the unit is a definite perk! We supply several complete sets of snorkel equipment in a variety of sizes, boogie boards, portable coolers and beach towels. We think you will love our great beach location! As an added perk, we are one of only a few Pat's condos with A/C.

Our experience at this property was wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a very layed back and quiet vacation, this is the place for you. The condo is decorated beautiful with everything that you will need. The view from the lanai is breathtaking! The beach is sandy and not crowded at all. The bed is very comfortable and you can listen to the sound of the ocean all night long. Communication was excellent with the property manger. We were provided with very detailed instructions in advance, as far as driving directions, where to find key, etc. There is a manual in the condo which we found extremely useful for restaurants, grocery stores, beaches, best snorkeling locations, etc. On arrival we found the exterior to be very deceiving. The outside does need some work, but once you enter the condo you quickly forget about the exterior. You can't go wrong with this property. We would not hesitate to rent again!

Beautiful Beachfront Condo!!! Breathtaking ocean views

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time my husband and I stayed in Punalu'u. Wow, what a beautiful area!! It's away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. It was so nice to see a different side of the island.

So peaceful and relaxing. We only stayed 3 nights and that was too short of a stay. There is a lot to do. We went to the Turtle Bay Resort and watched a talented singer John Akapo (Wed) at The Point - Sunset and Pool Bar what a beautiful area, drove to (North Shore) Haleiwa for lunch and of course Matsumoto Shaved Ice (Yum!), and went snorkeling and swimming on the beautiful white sandy beach, just steps away from the condo. The Polynesian Cultural Center was just a short drive away but we didn't make it there this time. We wanted go to the Macadamia Nut Farm tours and Kualoa Ranch too but we're saving that for the next time we return. My husband and I sat on the lanai and watched the sunrise every morning, it was so amazing. We just love being so close to the beach and hearing the ocean waves. When pulling up to the property as others have mentioned it is run down on the right side of the building. But once inside you will forget about it. It's a lovely unit, well stocked. There is even snorkel gear and boogie boards to use.

Great location, building needs work.

  • 2 of 5

I was genuinely disappointed overall. Based off of the pictures of the unit, it looked like a great place to stay.

The building is very old, and it shows. The pictures of the building didnt really provide an accurate depiction.

The unit itself was just OK. We slept in the living room on the Murphy bed. From that side of the unit you can hear the ocean with the sliding door open. If you utilize the designated sleeping room on the opposite end of the unit all you hear is traffic as the major road is right out that window. There are earplugs provided in the drawers next to that bed.

Again, my stay was just OK.

Owner's Response: I'm not certain what it was that you felt deserved a 2 star rating other than we are located in an older building which was built in the 1970's. All units are individually owned so a guest's experience will vary from unit to unit. For what it's worth, I've done my very best to provide a pleasant experience and good value for the nightly rate charged for my beachfront condo. It is unfortunate that you were disappointed. Please feel free to email me with additional comments so I can better understand why you were unhappy. You can contact the managers and they will pass on your email to me. Thank you, Deborah

We can't wait to come back.

  • 5 of 5

My Husband and I took our first vacation without our kids this year and couldn't have been happier with the suite!

Everything was as pictured and so well stocked! Things that we wouldn't have even thought we needed were at our fingertips.

We were thrilled to be right on the water and spent every sunrise on the Lanai watching the incredible view and spotting whales in the distance.

The location is wonderful for those who would like to stay out of the chaos of the city and listen to the ocean waves through the night.

The hosts have left a ton of helpful resource information about the area and island that made it easy to navigate.

( I would strongly suggest a trip to Papa Ole's nearby for a Loco Moco.)

Thank you! What a great rental, I can't wait to go back.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for a perfect stay. My wife and I enjoyed everything about our long weekend visit and look forward to return next August. Kathe was very helpful, the beach was perfect, and the condo had everything we needed. Tip: the food trucks down the street provided some delicious meals during our stay. We will definitely return to this property.

We had an amazing time. The condo was even better than we expected. They had everything you could need. The beds were very comfortable and the condo was clean. The outside of the building was a little deceiving. We could tell they were working on some updates. Everyone we met was VERY nice and helpful. The view was breathtaking! The beach was so peaceful and beautiful. Thanks for having beach chairs and snorkeling equipment for us to use. We will reccomend this place to our friends. Hopefully, we will be back. Thanks for a great vacation!

Nearest Beach
Car: recommended

Pat's at Punalu'u is nearby the Macadamia Nut Farm tours, Kualoa Ranch with its movie set tours, ATV tours and horseback riding, the Polynesian Cultural Center with its popular luau and Pacific Islander villages, Turtle Bay Resort, which has a full day spa, two championship resort golf courses and several restaurants. There are many beaches to choose from in the area and most are family-friendly and swimable all year around, including the great beach fronting our condo. We are also located a short drive from the part of Oahu's North Shore that has the huge winter waves and professional surfing events. Punalu'u is technically located on the North Shore but we do not have the large surf conditions that other North Shore locations like Sunset Beach, Pipeline-Ehukai, Laniakea, Waimea Bay and other famous surf spots experience. Unlike other areas of the North Shore, guests are able to swim 365 days a year at the majority of the beaches in our area and in front of our condo!
