About the Property

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps maximum of 4. Groups of no more than four.

Hawaii Tax I.D. No. 027-702-8864-01

Our oceanfront home, Kawela Kai, is located on the North Shore of Oahu in between Sunset Beach and the Turtle Bay Resort. The stretch of beach where we are located is beautifully secluded and uncrowded. The beach is protected by a coral reef.

The house is an air conditioned, cozy, two-bedroom, single-family home with it's own yard. It is furnished with a fully-equipped kitchen and all linens. The house has been upgraded and includes; granite counters, new soft close cabinets and drawers in the kitchen, stainless steel appliances, crown molding throughout, and plantation shutters. There is one queen and two single beds. For your convenience, we offer wireless internet access.

The house has a lovely covered lanai for protection from the sun or if you are a sun lover, there is a nice grassy area between the house and the ocean where you can soak up the sun. During the winter months and early spring, you may have the opportunity to see the humpback whales that migrate from Alaska. If the surf is not too high, you may see the whales breathing and breaching right from the lanai. Other wildlife may be seen from the lanai; such as birds, turtles, rays, Hawaiian monk seals, and the occasional surfer.

There is a washer and dryer available for your use during your stay. As with many oceanfront homes on the North Shore, we are located on the road that goes around the island, so the bedrooms may experience some traffic noise at different times of the day.

The house sits about 18' above the beach. Access to the beach is down steps in the sea wall. Directly in front of the house is a flat rocky/sandstone surface with sandy beach further away to the right and the left of the house. Access to the water directly in front of the house is over a sandstone surface, and a lava/coral shelf.

You may swim, snorkel, and surf in front of the house during the months from late spring through early fall, but because we are on the North Shore, when the surf is up it is not safe for inexperienced swimmers just about anywhere on the North Shore.

During the winter months, the powerful awesome large surf on the North Shore is tremendously exciting to watch. We are located two miles from Sunset Beach, three miles from Pipeline, and five miles from Waimea Bay. These three beaches are world famous for the large surf and surfing competitions. Even if you do not surf, it is exhilarating to watch!

We are located ten miles from historic Haleiwa town which offers a variety of shops and restaurants. We are about a mile from the championship golf courses at the Turtle Bay Resort.

In case you are not familiar with Hawaiian words, the 'w' in Kawela is pronounced as a 'v'.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: We love Hawaii. One of us grew up in Hawaii, the other in San Diego. We were both teachers until one of us retired. Now there is one teacher and one Pickleball player! Our cocker spaniel's name is Lei Lei.

Why the Owner Chose Kahuku, HI, USA:
We love the North Shore and specifically the part where the house is located because it is away from the crowds. We are a couple of miles from Sunset Beach which is exactly what we wanted. From our house or lanai, if we see four or five people walk by on the beach, that is a very crowded day! We chose this property because it is directly oceanfront. Nothing blocks our view. We like that our house is not connected to any other dwelling and we that we have our own yard.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our house is much more to us than a piece of real estate. The house is our pride and joy and we are so grateful for it. We love relaxing there while being surrounded by so much beauty. We love watching the turtles come up for air. We are filled with awe as we see the whales breathe, breach, and frolic during winter and spring months. We can see these things happening while sitting on our lanai, sitting at our dining room table, or washing dishes at the kitchen sink. Every meal at the house offers a table with a terrific view. Not many restaurants can compete with our view. Needless to say, we prefer to stay home for meals. Mahalo for taking a look.
