My Vacation Rental Hawaii
Experience the best of Hawaii at our oceanfront one bedroom condo in beautiful Punaluu.
Enjoy the beauty of the sunrise from your lanai as turtles and whales swim by.
Escape the hustle and bustle of the city while remaining only a short drive away.
We would be most pleased to welcome you to My Vacation Rental Hawaii!
Our beachfront one bedroom condominium is designed to provide a comfortable home for as many as four people to fully experience the beauty that is Hawaii. The gentle slope of the sandy beach make it ideal for small children. Snorkeling, kayaking, fishing, swimming, are all available at your doorstep, as is the nature that lives at the beach. Turtles swim in the water and occasionally pull up onto the beach for a nap at night. Whales frolic in the water beyond the reef, easily visible from the living room and lanai of the unit's high rise position. In a less populated area, stores and eating places are still available nearby, allowing all the advantages of a secluded getaway with few of the inconveniences.
Reef protected waters make for great swimming, kayaking, snorkeling, or just playing in the water. Fishing is good, too.
Hiking trails and acres of tidal pools beckon the explorers.
Famous North Shore surf beaches just a short drive away.
Polynesian cultural Center just 10 minutes away.
Horseback riding, golf, tennis, and SCUBA available nearby.
The unit is a newly renovated large one bedroom apartment on the seventh floor.
It is well-equipped for your enjoyment, with a closet of beach equipment and toys and a well-equipped kitchen. There also is a landline phone for local calls, as well as a private WI-fi network.

I'm a professor of economics at a local university who loves the ocean, hiking around oahu, and providing hospitality to others. I've discovered that providing a pleasureable experience for guests is something I truly enjoy, whether it is entertaining people for dinner, or readying the condo for a vacationing guest.
Barbara Poole-Street purchased this condo in 2010
I bought this condo unit planning to live in it full time when I retire in several years. For me, the location is ideal: immediate access to a beautiful gentle beach, where I can snorkle, swim and kayak-- or just relax in a chaise. A swimming pool and fitness center offers more opportunities onsite. But the immediate area also offers terrific hiking and photographic opportunities, and within a few minutes drive there are additional activities available. The atmosphere is rural and laid-back (reminding me of Hawaii of years past), and yet within an hour I can be anywhere on the island.
While I adore all of the recreational activities the condo offers, I have to admit that what I love best is the sense of relaxation that overcomes me when I arrive at the property. Is it the calming ocean views from the condo, the sound of the waves lapping at the shore, or the gentle tradewinds that blowing thru the unit? Whichever, the sense of calm that overcomes me and stays with me is so refreshing.
We came to the condo not knowing what to expect! We were pleased when we arrived!
We were a family of four that didn’t want to be crammed in a small space for 6 days. The condo was wonderful the location was prefect. We were steps away from the beach. The view was amazing. You have an UNOBSTRUCTED view of the ocean. The condo was fully furnished with quality linens and towels. The master bedroom was very large and you got a good cross wind when the lanai door was opened. There was no need for air conditioning. The kitchen was fully stocked with all the cook ware that you could need. It was a perfect place to spend our family vacation. We would definitely recommend this unit to other families.
This condo is nicer than the pictures. If you are looking for a peaceful, comfortable place to stay come here. My wife, my child, and i had an amazing time. Beach is oerfect for young children. Would recomend this place to couples or familys.
This was our first time using a vacation rental and we will definitely be doing it again. The condo was clean, looked exactly like the photos, and well stocked with plenty of towels, linens, and kitchen amenities (remember to bring your own coffee and spices for cooking). There was a closet with some beach toys, two boggie boards, two beach chairs, umbrella, ponchos, and some snorkel gear. If you have your own snorkel gear, you may want to bring it though as none of the flippers fit us and there was only one goggle. We ended up purchasing our own from Costco for a reasonable price. There were plenty of board games, books, good wifi, and a few DVDs to keep the kids busy at night.
We were looking for a place away from town, hoping to escape the crowds. While the beach was peaceful and we had it to ourselves most of the time, we found we drove into town a lot more than we would have expected. If you just want to stay near the condo and relax on a peaceful beach, this would be perfect. However, if you plan on doing a variety of activities (hiking, pearl harbor, diamond head, Hanauma Bay, lagoons at Ko Olina for sunsets) you may want somewhere closer to town since traffic can be slow moving as the road is only one lane most of the way.
The bedroom was larger than I expected and the king size bed was very comfortable. Yes, there is road noise as many people have commented on, but it didn't bother us as we are used to it. It isn't noticeable in the living room and had the kids not been sleeping on the sofa bed, we would have slept very comfortably there. There is a light right outside the bedroom window, so the room doesn't get very dark. My husband had a little trouble falling asleep as we are used to complete darkness in our rooms.
Overall we really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a comfortable place to stay on the island of Oahu.
Condo was so close to the beach, and quiet area in the country, and amazing scenery there and around the condo. Had an short stay but worth it all around it was so close to everything we wanted to do, but away from main tourist area which made it that much more intimate for us. Highly recommend to anyone. Owner was very nice as well!!
Very nice, well-equipped condo with beautiful view and easy access to the beach. Wonderful view of sunrises from the lanai each morning while having a delicious cup of Kona coffee. Close to several nice attractions and some excellent places to eat. Would be five stars, but there was construction going on and the noise level was almost unbearable at times. (Not the owner's fault, of course.)
We had a wonderful visit to Punalu'u and hope one day to return. The ocean view and the mountains took our breath away. Exploring the windward side of the island an the North Shore held wonders around every turn. We are from NC. Those who are familiar with the Blue Ridge Parkway will find the drive along these beaches similar with many spectacular photo ops and roadside attractions to explore. In addition to the mountains this area has the ocean and its offerings seafood and lounging on the beach. We particularly recommend the many roadside food trucks and restaurants. Visiting Waimea Valley and its beautiful falls and exploring the village of Haleiwa, a surfer town with restaurants and shops. Take the road down the center of the island to the Dole Plantation. There is much to do you will want to go back.
Only 2 suggestions: The bedroom needs better ventilation and renters need to know that though there's a good coffee maker there may be no coffee. There was none when we arrived, but we were able to buy some with little effort.
