Paradise is BEACHFRONT on the Northeast Shore/Ka‘a’awa
This is Hawaii as you dreamed… this spectacular oceanfront Polynesian cottage must be seen to be believed. Located between Turtle Bay Resort and Kaneohe Bay on the northeast shore of Oahu this stretch of pristine white sand beach is enfolded in the arms of the Koolau Mountain range, and stretches 300 feet before you reach another home.
This home was completely rebuilt, a beautifully appointed one bedroom, one bath plantation style home features a sliding, stacking door system that opens the front of the home to the dining deck that is inches from the sea. The tropical living area is enhanced by an attractive woven bamboo ceiling and ceiling fans. Take a moonlight swim and shower in comfort in our outdoor hot water shower, under the stars.
There is one double pune'e (Hawaiian style sofa/sleeping daybed) and a single pune'e in the living area, and a king in the bedroom complete with feather bed for maximum comfort.
All linens for the kitchen, bedroom, bath and beach are supplied as well as a nice compliment of amenities. There is a separate laundry room with a washer/dryer on the property for your use.
The fully equipped kitchen has beautiful granite countertops, nice appliances, and is fully stocked with cooking, serving and kitchen aids as well as spices and general use refrigerator items.
The view from the deck is a sight to behold through the coconut trees to one of Oahu’s most identifiable historic landmarks, Chinaman’s Hat Island. This site is where the great Polynesian Voyaging canoe, Hokule'a, was first launched in 1976, proving that the Polynesians did indeed navigate by the stars from the South Pacific, first reaching the Sandwich Islands (Hawaii) from over 2400 miles around 400 AD.
It is customary for Hawaiian Warriors to dip their oars when passing their Ali'i (kings) buried high above in the magnificent K'o'olau Mountains.
The beach stretches the length of a football field in one direction and in the other you can walk several miles through Kualoa State Park to the site of a huge ancient Hawaiian fishpond. Watch spectacular sunrises from the deck, sunbathe on the beach or watch the divers and fishermen and perhaps try your hand at “catching dinner local style”. You can see turtles, rays and the occasional surfer from the deck or snorkel in our coral preserve.
Right in front of the house is a lovely 'menehune' fish pond which is a delight to everyone, especially to the little ones at low tide.
The atmosphere is country, but you are close to restaurants and conveniences, and 30 minutes from Honolulu. Located minutes away from world famous North Shore attractions such as the Hauula hiking trails, the Polynesian Cultural Center, Turtle Bay Resort and Golf Course, Sunset Beach, Waimea Bay and some of the last unspoiled Hawaiian style towns on Oahu. A little inside information for you golfers … the nearby Kuhuku Golf Course where half the holes on this municipal course have an ocean view starts at $20 for green fees and it goes down from there!
Directly across the street is the 4,000 acre, magnificent Kualoa horse ranch offering ziplining, horseback trail rides, jungle tours ,movie set tours, catamaran rides and Paniolo (Hawaiian) BBQ’s, or just visit the beautiful horses at your back door. The ranch has been the site of many movies including 'Jurrasic Park' and 'King Kong' and Lost.
As with many oceanfront homes, the road that circles the island is located behind the house and may provide some traffic noise at different times of the day. We apologize but PARADISE IS PARADISE and lives in the hearts and minds of all of you who have a dream...
Please note: while we try to schedule the gardener between guests, we are often booked solid and unable to do so; please excuse the gardener if he has to do the yard while you are there. He will aim to work while you are out for the day. Mahalo for your understanding.
E KOMO MAI (You're welcome) We look forward to seeing you soon...
SEE YOU IN PARADISE
