Mokuleia Classic Hawaiian-Style Beachfront Home - Great Views!

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 0 - 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 "Ask the Owner" (directly to me) 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 Calif. King 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 and CD player with Hawaiian CDs.)

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 (NOW with a spacious Calif. King bed,) and windows providing a beautiful lawn & 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 comfortable 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 extra table/standing 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 Waialua

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!

Wonderful, amazing ocean views! Peace, sand, quiet...heavenly.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful sweet beach cottage—so homey and comfortable. Vintage cottage is very well maintained with high quality updates. Peaceful and lovely location with the best ocean views and green lawn you could ever want. Outdoor access to the two showers are a real plus! Fully stocked kitchen and bathrooms with outdoor shed containing beach chairs and toys/masks, snorkels, etc so all you have to bring is your clothes and food! Perfect vacation spot for those seeking peace and quiet but not be too far from the action. Haleiwa is less than 10 min drive away with lots of shops, restaurants, and activities.

Wonderful Place to Stay for Spring Break!

  • 5 of 5

Great location. Loved the snorkeling off the back yard--saw three huge turtles during 3 consecutive days! Beautiful view and perfect yard for playing croquet. Very comfortable beds. There are doors to the outside for both showers, so washing off after swim is very easy. Really liked the "great room" interior with pass-through window to kitchen. I'll stay here again!

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The property was fantastic! Our family was very comfortable and enjoyed our stay. The owner was very helpful and really took great care of this home. We really enjoyed the beach which for the most part had to ourselves. We were blessed to snorkel with all of the turtles and fish that were literally a few feet from this property’s back yard. We are grateful to the owner for sharing her lovely home allowing us to make wonderful family memories. Aloha from St. Louis!

It is the perfect beach house!

  • 5 of 5

What a vacation getaway! The house - clean, cute, comfy, safe, quiet and relaxing. It was so amazing to wake up every morning to the ocean and to be able to walk out to the beach/yard and watch the sun come up while enjoying a coffee. It feels like you have an entire beach to yourself the majority of the time. So quiet and peaceful! Our beach was wonderful- the sand is so soft and the reef is "wow". We swam with the turtles daily and spent hours snorkeling- so many different creatures to see. We enjoyed all the little tips and tricks that Stephanie shared with us about the house, beach and Hawaii in general. There are brochures/maps in the house that give you different ideas and suggestions for things to do and it is very easy to drive around. So many things to do and it is all within a 10 minute drive. If you want a cute and quiet place to stay this home is definitely it! It feels like home and we were all sad to say good bye. Stephanie - Thank you so much for sharing your home with my family and we cannot wait to come back!

Best family vacation ever

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Mokuleia beach house. The beach, right out the back, is awesome. Snorkeling was the favorite of my grandsons. The location was perfect for our planned tours. We didn't encounter much traffic at all. We were very pleased with our choice.
