Wonderful home on great beachfront location! Numerous amenities, great kitchen - we loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful stay at this condo. The quality of the home and it's furnishings were top notch. There were more than enough staples whether it be toilet paper or plates and cups. The sunrises were amazing and the views from the master suite unsurpassed. We even saw a complete rainbow! We looked at several other places that had only one bathroom and elected this one due to its extra bathroom. It was definitely worth it! There were plenty of towels, lights, games, beach toys, and room to stretch ourselves out. We only wished we hadn't spent so much time out and about so we could have enjoyed it more. Waking up to the sunrise in the master bedroom is a great memory. Although we didn't need anything extra the caretakers seemed very nice and willing to accommodate us. This was our first HomeAway experience and we were concerned about the accuracy of the description of the accommodation but if anything it was more than we expected. We will definitely be using HomeAway again! Thank you Karon and all for a memorable stay!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time during our stay at Pat's at Punaluu. The views were spectacular and the owners were great to work with. They made sure we had everything we needed during our stay. It was family friendly and had plenty of room.

Lovely penthouse high above a sprawling beach!

  • 5 of 5

The property was comfortable for a family of four. The kitchen was well appointed and the sleeping arrangements were great. We were high above the beach, so the views were breath taking and the sun perching in the windows in early morning begged you to get up!The location was great those wanting to enjoy the island culture......

Breathtaking Views!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a fantastic stay at Dan's Punaluu penthouse. The condo was beautiful and exceeded our expectations. It has impressive views - the ocean from one side and gorgeous, lush, green mountain views from the other. The open floor plan and massive windows let in lots of light. Sitting on the balcony watching the sunrise and sunset over the ocean was magical. The kitchen was spacious and the master bath luxurious. It obviously has many high quality upgrades and is uniquely stunning and comfortable at the same time. We were able to take our daughter in the pool and the ocean - right there! There are cute shops and eateries nearby. There are also many sights around the island to see such as Black Sand Beach, Kahana Beach Park, the Polynesian Cultural Center, Valley of the Temples, and Sunset Beach surfing area. We had a very memorable vacation.

We love this place!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed 8-10 times over the last 10 years. We absolutely love this place. If you want Waikiki with all the people and traffic then please go there. If you want a restful Hawaiian vacation, go to the windward side of the island where you can stroll beaches with hardly anyone there during the week. And still be within a short amazingly beautiful drive to shopping and restaurants on Waikiki.

The condo is a penthouse condo on the 8th floor of the building only steps from the breach. The reserved parking space is right in front of the elevator. The Kitchen is beautiful (granite counter tops, hard wood floors, wood cabinets) and has everything you need to cook for yourself and your family. The dining and living room has a deck that over looks the amazing beach and palm trees that host a family of parrots every night around 5-6pm.

And what can I say about the upstairs master suite. It has floor to ceiling windows on two sides that give you a view from your king size bed of the ocean and the mountains at the same time. Not only that but the bedroom opens out onto a huge deck which is actually the roof of the building. This gives you a 360 degree view of the beautiful Ko'olau Mountains and the beach up and down the island. If you spend time on the deck you will be able to see whales breaching at certain times of the year (like we saw on our last stay), and almost every day you can see large sea turtles feeding off the beach.

The master bath is amazing too. It is appointed with wood cabinets, glass counters. and marble floors and shower with 3 shower heads (yes 3). It is so cool to come home after a long day at the beach and shower with a view of the beach you were on while you are showering!!!

The beach at Punaluu is great because it is reef protected. My wife and I are not great swimmers but this beach is safe year around because the breakers are far away beyond the reef. You can snorkel or swim year round. If you have kids they will love it because there are no big waves and there is no under toe not matter what time of year.

If you want big waves you only need to drive 15 minutes to the north shore where you will find world famous Sunset Beach, Waimea Beach, and the Pipeline where big wave surfers put on a show.

The Polynesian Cultural Center is only 5 minutes away and there are great restaurants only 10 minutes away at the Turtle Bay Resort on the North Shore.

We will be going back. We hope you come too!

Beautiful and quiet getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this Punaluau penthouse for a week in February. It was beautiful, peaceful and incredibly relaxing. The view is breathtaking and the surroundings all a Hawaiian vacation has to offer. The beach was safe and clean and right outside the building. The bedrooms were comfortable and clean, both with beautiful views and king size beds. There are two daybeds in the living room for extra sleeping. The kitchen had everything we needed. It is a perfect place for a family vacation. We drove all over the island and always loved coming home to our quiet and beautiful paradise condo.
