Mokuleia Classic Hawaiian-Style Beachfront Home - Great Views!

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 - 14 nights


About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6+)

ALOHA - You now have TWO options to book your beach house stay!:

1) the (more immediate)(with fee) "Request to Book," in an orange rectangle, and

2) the Regular Option "Send Message" (to owner) in blue type

For either inquiry option, please include info. about your expected visit (number in group/ages of children, any questions), and we will respond to you!

WELCOME to your comfortable, peaceful retreat in Paradise! Beauty surrounds you. The view from the living room itself is marvelous: beautiful Ocean waves and grassy Lawn, Hawaiian coconut trees with blue sky and white clouds. You can sit and look at it all day!

LOCATION - This becomes Your Beach House where you may experience the famed North Shore of O'ahu, home to spectacular winter waves and laid-back beach relaxation in 'the country.' You will enjoy:

~ TWO bedroom areas: 1) main floor bedroom with a queen bed, and 2) upstairs 2nd bedroom with bunk beds, (plus additional queen bed in open-plan main floor living room)

~ TWO bathrooms (main floor 4 pc. full bath, with a separate bathtub)(upstairs 3 pc. bathroom)

~ a large combined living room/dining room

~ large picture-window OCEAN view, plus all the benefits of a regular home!

SPACIOUS - There is plenty of space in the combination living-dining room to accommodate your loved ones, for playing puzzles/games or talking about the day's swim/beach walk/adventures. (Of course there is a cable TV with DVD player and a VCR with tapes too.)

BEACH - Just walk out the door, thru the lanai with the picnic tables, and you will be on your grassy lawn (big enough for Croquet!), surrounded by native Hawaiian plantings, and the gently sloping seashore is in front of you.

VIEW - See the sandy beach, the ocean's waves - plus! - the coastline and mountain views. Beautiful! Lay down and sunbathe, either on the tree-shaded grass or sand, and let go in the warmth of the day, listening to the waves lapping on the shore. Or sit in a chair and just be mesmerized by the ocean's beauty. Stay long enough and you will see the turtles! (and maybe the humpback whales during winter).

SWIM/SNORKEL - After taking a refreshing swim or snorkel in the warm and safe ocean, return to your home, enter either bathroom's shower from its outside door, enjoy your hot shower, and step directly from the shower into the bathroom to get dressed.

KITCHEN - Stay casual and prepare dinner in the full kitchen. The kitchen has a pass-through to the dining/living room - easy for communicating and also from which to enjoy the picture window view. You could even go out to the lanai and grill your own fish or teriyaki steak or fresh vegetables. Eat outside at the double picnic tables or in at the big family-sized table - your choice!

BEDROOMS - Two bedrooms plus living room will accommodate up to eight people.

1st - Main floor bedroom with a Queen bed (and French door to the lawn) has its own beautiful ocean view (and sounds of the waves!); 2nd - Second floor bedroom: two sets of stationary bunk beds, each bunk pair in its own small private bedroom area, in the partially-divided upstairs bedroom.

Another GREAT place to sleep is on the Queen bed in the living room (used both to sleep and as a Hawaiian daybed, the 'pune'e' for those in the know!). This bed has the advantage of a picture window lawn/ocean view when you wake up, and soothing ocean sounds at night!

Two bathrooms make this a comfortable retreat for a family or friends to enjoy.

HOUSE - The house is a vintage, roomy, Hawaiian style, classic board and batten, unique beach house, built circa 1920s-1940s. My grandparents said it first started life as a fishing shack! In this house we enjoy Hawaii's trade winds, with open windows, & six ceiling fans that cool the house, with some extra table fans too. Our beach home was built to have a bedroom for the parents and a bedroom for the kids, so we added the extra queen bed in the living room for those who enjoy informal, casual, beach-side living! This Hawaiian beach house has been well-used and well-loved within this family since the 1930s! And we would like to share it with you now.

CONVENIENT - The nearby towns of Waialua and Haleiwa are just ten minutes away with many restaurants, shops and attractions available! The beautiful North Shore coast and ocean are in either direction.

~ Great restaurants

~ Variety of shops and interesting things to see

~ Attractions - nearby Waimea Bay park, hikes and walks, Polynesian Cultural Center, other beautiful beaches, easy access to Pearl Harbor and Honolulu

PEACEFUL - When you stay here, in the quiet of the night, go outside, look up at the star-filled sky, and notice how peaceful it is. It is QUIET. Listen to the waves, they will lull you to sleep in your clean and cozy beds - all is well with the world, and in the morning you will happily greet another beautiful day!

About Stephanie Fitzpatrick

This beach house has been in our family for over EIGHTY years! Our grandparents, parents, the siblings, and now children and grandchildren have had many memorable and fun times here. And we are ready and willing to share this vintage beach house with you now!

Stephanie Fitzpatrick purchased this house in 1934

Why Stephanie Fitzpatrick chose North Shore Oahu

We have a family history and much aloha for Mokuleia and the Waialua district. It is reflected in our stories, experiences, the house itself, and the furnishings and plantings. This truly is a vintage, classic beach house, and there are fewer and fewer of them remaining in Hawai'i! This is no modern cookie cutter house, flat and starkly new - this house is unique, with home-grown vernacular architecture and has soul! And it has seen its share of natural phenomenon, and keeps on ticking! Come relax ocean-side in a real home-like beach house, just perfect for a family to feel comfortable in!

What makes this house unique

We love the openness of the living and dining rooms, comfy and casual, with the fabulous view out the picture window! I especially like the Queen bed in the living room, used as a Hawaiian-style daybed/pune'e, where you can wake up to the morning view of trees, blue sky and ocean. It's a room that just embraces everyone in a big family hug!

There is also an easy five-stair 'upstairs' where the second bedroom and bathroom are located, adding both some privacy and still some connection to the rest of the house, overlooking the dining area.

Beautiful sandy oceanfront, with wonderful views of the North Shore up and down the beach, protected by wide reef - good for snorkeling, safe for swimming throughout the year, and shallow enough for children to wade, play and swim in - a quiet area, few on the beach. Turtles visit often, whales may be seen during the winter months. Beautiful summer sunsets - magnificent winter waves from storms elsewhere! The lawn is grassy and has lots of shade - good for watching the waves, daydreaming, playing games, and even star-gazing. The living room picture window provides a fabulous view of the grass, plantings and OCEAN. Can be seen from the kitchen, thru to the dining-living room. A Favorite place to spend the night is on the Queen bed in the living room - wake up to the sight of the trees and lawn with ocean waves!

Property is very well kept and it felt like home

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time! Stephanie was so nice and thoughtful. The beach is just steps away and the most exciting part was waiting until close to sunset to see the turtles resting on the beach a few doors down! The house was fully equipped. Only ate out a couple of times. The queen bed was very comfortable and it was so nice to go to sleep and wake up to the waves crashing just out the bedroom window. Thanks Stephanie! The Lepke's

Not as advertised

  • 1 of 5

Our original stay was supposed to be 2/12 to 3/18 however we checked out 2-weeks early and into a hotel. The house was advertised as having air conditioning however there is none and when asked about it by the owner she stated it was never advertised as having air conditioning. The listing clearly shows air conditioning. We also found mold and rotting window frames in the kitchen. This was not a vacation rather we have been working the entire time. The longest we stayed in the house was one week with everyone becoming ill thus the decision to leave early. We have photos and screen grabs to support concerns. We will write more once our work is done in HI and we are home.

Owner's Response: Aloha - We have had numerous five star reviews (46!) from happy and contented guests, and we ourselves have been happy and pleased over the years to give our guests a great home and location for their trip to Hawaii! So, we were very disappointed that these guests never notified us about their concerns during their stay; this was part of their signed agreement with us. Like many homes in Hawaii, especially a vintage, classic beach house, we do not have air conditioning; we do list our cooling ceiling fans and Hawaiian trade winds as the way our house is cooled in the A/C section on VRBO, and since these guests didn't find that clear enough, we will improve it. We do currently have some weathering of a portion of some wooden window screens; it is part of living in Hawaii next to the ocean. They were already on our list for upkeep. We do regular maintenance and improvement of this unique beach home; we aim to keep it clean and comfortable, attractive and updated. It was only at check out that we were notified about the possibility of mold in one of our upstairs windows' casing. It was not in the rest of the room, or house, and our cleaner, when shown it, said that it was some dirt and that she apologized for missing it; so greater attention will be put in that area. (If our guests had let us know about it, as soon as they noticed per our agreement, we would have been happy to take care of it.) Please notice the number of times that visitors have independently mentioned the cleanliness of our place in their reviews. Some people might feel more at home in a hotel, but we know that when our guests return to stay, that they are having fulfilling experiences at our beach house! And we appreciate sharing this original Hawaiian-style home with visitors to Hawaii, we've done so for decades. We've given them treasured times and a great place to relax and renew; we are rooted in Hawaii's history and culture, and with our beautiful and peaceful house, location and scenery, we invite you too to stay!

quiet,peaceful far away from the hustle if the city

  • 5 of 5

My wife Kathleen and I stayed in Sept. The place is as advertised. It is clean and neat with a large lawn leading to a beach( basically your own--you do share it with turtles,a seal and the occasional neighbor) The home is a long time family place that is just that. Do not expect "modern" but rather comfy and clean. It has a gated and fenced front with private car port. It is close to the kitchen entrance which really has everything you need--if you like to cook. We cooked in ( actually B_B_Q,charcoal)every evening to enjoy the sunsets from the beach. We went to town for a trip or two to Foodland and restaurants for 3 lunches. There are 2 bedrooms downstairs ( one in the living area) and two smaller ones upstairs which we did not need. The living area is comfortable. Outdoors there is a covered dining area that can seat maybe 10 or so. The property is well maintained One of the best things is that the showers(both) have a door to the outside side you can enter from the beach or shower with a view of the ocean.( it is private and comfortable on a hot afternoon. There is no air conditioner but fans that do an OK job.

The beach is beautiful but I must mention it is very,very soft so it hard to walk on for any distance. The waves are manageable small due to a reef out about 300 ft. We swam with turtles daily and had a visit one day of a large seal resting . The waters out front are pretty calm and the rocks and some fish make a snorkel good but do not expect the clear colorful reef of the c

The neighborhood is only private residences. The front road is a 2 lane road and usually quiet and good for a morning walk. We met friendly people. It is about 15 min from town. Close but far enough away from the tourist crowd

Stephanie who owns the place is thorough and rightly involved in her "guest" maintaining the property. She gives a thorough presentation on arrival and will want to check you out. Not a problem except on arrival you are tired from travel so your attention may waiver. Do not listen! She gives good advice. One example is that she told us where the flashlights were located. Boy that info came into importance when the lights went out in the entire neighborhood on our first night as we sat down to dinner. We ate by flashlight and went to bed some thereafter. With no fans it was hot and we were awoke at 2 AM when the lights came on .

All in all the place, location and things we wanted met our expectations.

Explore the road. to the West up to the port.

Third Month-Long Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I obviously love Stephanie's beach cottage because we came this summer for our third month-long visit and are already planning our next! This cottage with its beautiful big yard and beach are so relaxing that we refer to this as our Happy Place. We continued our custom of watching each sunset together to celebrate the end of another wonderful day.
