Property description

ALOHA - You now have TWO options to book your beach house stay!:
1) the (more immediate) BOOK IT option, in an orange rectangle, and
2) the Regular Option "SEND EMAIL" in a light blue box.

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 (main bedroom with a queen bed, 2nd bedroom with bunk beds)(plus a queen bed in living room)
~ TWO bathrooms (one with a separate bathtub)
~ 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 bedroom with a Queen bed (and French door to the lawn) has its own beautiful ocean view (and sounds of the waves!); 2nd - Second 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, and first started life as a fishing shack! It 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!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1934

About the owner: 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!

Why the Owner Chose Waialua, O'ahu, HI, USA:
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!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
