If you’re looking for Waikiki, this isn’t it. Our condo is located on the windward side of Oahu, in Punaluu, less than 5 minutes from Laie and the Polynesian Cultural Center. Our unit is on the third floor of a secure building.
This condo is not “walking distance” to the beach, it’s DIRECTLY ON a beautiful sandy beach. In fact, you can throw a stone from the lanai (patio) to the water. This beachfront location makes a huge difference when you’re carrying armfuls of towels, mats, snorkels and etc. In the morning, you can have breakfast on the lanai and watch the sun come up over the sea.
The beach is never crowded like other spots on Oahu. Some days you’ll have the whole beach to yourself. There’s a reef about a half-mile out, where the waves break, so the water is calm and perfect for swimming or snorkeling. If you want waves, “Pounders Beach” is 2 minutes away, and world famous Sunset Beach or Waimea Bay are only 20 minutes away.
The condo sleeps 6, usually 2 adults and 4 kids. It’s a little crowded with 6 adults, although we’ve done it ourselves a few times. It has a full kitchen; washer/dryer, queen size bed, and 2 Futon couch sleepers.
Most of these units rent for a lot more per night. We've owned this condo for 10 years, but are just starting out renting it. Until it gets well known, we're charging a discount rate. It's the same all year too. We don't charge more in December or Summer. We lived in Hawaii for ten years, and think this is the best location on Oahu. You're secluded out in the country just like old Hawaii, but if you want the city, it's only 45 minutes to Waikiki, Ala Moana, Pearl Harbor or the swap meet.
There are other smaller units in the building that are about the same price. They are the size of a hotel room. Our unit is a true one bedroom at 726 square feet. We also have a 200 square foot lanai. (Only units on the 3rd floor have the large lanai). This is a great bargain for beachfront on Oahu.
We lived in Hawaii for years and bought this condo so we could have a place to come back to. We stay here a few months out of the year and rent it out the rest of the time. We currently live in Salt Lake City, Utah
The Owner purchased this condo in 1999
It's rural, but the big city is nearby if you need it.
Steps from the beach
My family of four spent 3 days there and we had a wonderful time. The condo is very clean, well kept, and quite. The owner puts great effort to provides very useful information and it really helps a lot. We enjoyed so much walking on the isolated beach, water is so clean and warm, we saw turtle passing by! Image how nice it is to watch sunrise there. This place is very close to Polynesian Culture Center, and shopping for food is also convenient. We will definitely try to stay there again if have chance to visit back.
Judith's condo worked out great for my family. Our family of four included 3 adults and a baby and there was more than enough room for everyone. Having the large deck was really nice because it provided even more space for everyone. Sitting out there first thing in the morning with coffee was a great way to start the day. Being able to leave the slider open to take advantage of the wonderful breeze coming in off the ocean was also a plus. We were part of a large family group that included babies, their great grandfather and everyone in-between. Four generations rented seven units all together at Pat's of Punalu'u and every condo was stocked with everything you could need. It was really nice having the calm beach and pool with enough gear provided so that everyone could enjoy the water. We are already planning a return trip!
We were very happy and pleased with how clean, well maintained and accommodating this unit was - Great for families or just a quiet weekend beach getaway to the country - We live on Oahu and will surely be doing this again
Comfortable and somewhat rural location. Convenient to the Polynsian cultural center and north shore beaches (we really enjoyed Sharks Cove). No a/c but the fans worked well. Owner was quick to respond and pleasant to qork with. SUNRISES WERE FABULOUS!
Our family of four, including two teenagers, had a great time here in August. It's spacious and has a great cross-breeze to keep it cool. The beds are comfy, kitchen is great and overall worked really well for us.
The unit really is just a stone's throw from the beach, and this was probably the highlight for us. We enjoyed the best snorkelling here, right off the beach, better than anywhere else we found on Oahu apart from Hanauma Bay. The unit had snorkel gear in the storage close which worked well for us and saved $$ in renting.
The location is also great, away from crowds in Honolulu/Waikiki and with amazing views along the north shore. Not far in either direction are local towns, restaurants and activities so there's lots to do if you want. North Shore Tacos serves up a great fish and shrimp taco meal.
Definitely recommended, we'd return here in a heartbeat. Thanks!
We had a great stay in this condo! It was clean, tidy, and well-kept. And WHAT A GREAT LOCATION! My husband, teen daughter and I really enjoyed walking out to the beach--we used the snorkeling gear in the storage closet and had a blast!
The owner provided a notebook with menus and info for dining and sightseeing that was extremely helpful. I also found the owner very responsive to my questions before our stay--and she was very prompt in returning our security deposit after our stay.
If we ever have the opportunity to visit again, I will definitely try to stay here again--I wish there were more stars to award this great condo and its fabulous owner!
