About the property

Chuns Reef - BEACHFRONT! Oceanfront Main House ***Beach Toys***

Chuns Reef Beach House sits on a beautiful 10,000 square foot lot with 130 feet of direct ocean frontage. The home sits directly on Chuns Reef Beach. The home is located on a corner lot with sand surrounding more than half of the home. The home is perfectly located halfway between Waimea Bay and Haleiwa town on Oahu's famous North Shore. The home was originally constructed as the Laniakea Train Station in the late 1800's. The home is raised above the winter surf on large cement pillars and because it was originally constructed many years ago it is built much closer to the beach than most North Shore beachfront homes.

Chuns Reef Beach House has one of the best locations on the North Shore with a beautiful white sandy beach at your doorstep. Once you open the gate, the sand is 4 steps away. We provide lots of beach toys for the use of our guests including sand chairs, umbrellas, snorkel gear, boogie boards, soft top surfboards, kayaks, and coolers. Chuns Reef is the best spot for water activities on the North Shore during the calm summer months!!!! The calm summertime reef is perfect for snorkeling, kayaking, stand up paddle board and beginner surf lessons. Tide pools in front of the home can provide hours of exploration for the little ones.

There is AMAZING world class surf in front of the property during the winter months. Two surf cams are located on the property. To check the surf directly in front of the property please visit and view Chuns and Jackos surf spots.

The entire home was recently completely refurnished with beautiful Balinese furnishings.

The Oceanfront Main House is located on the second floor. The second floor lanai features sweeping views of the ocean. The main house features a 60' Sony flat screen TV in the living room with Apple TV and a Sony DVD player. There is a 55' Sony flat screen TV in the master bedroom and 46' inch Sony flat screen in the second bedroom.

High speed wireless internet is provided throughout the property.

The Oceanfront Main House features a full kitchen with cooktop stove, Viking dishwasher, Cusinart microwave oven, Cusinart coffee maker and Breville countertop oven. The kitchen is fully stocked with pots/pans, dishes and all utensils.

There are two bedrooms. The master bedroom features a beautiful king teak Balinese canopy bed. The second guest bedroom is open to the living room and features a queen bed. All beds feature pillow top mattresses, down comforters and down pillows. Fresh white linens on all beds.

Living room features feather down blend sofa and chair. Balinese daybed in living room is perfect for watching the sunset.

There are two sets of front load washers and dryers on the property. Gas BBQ on the lanai.

There is an above ground oceanfront jacuzzi.

Bath towels, beach towels, hair dryer, and iron are provided.

Unbelievable... even in the rain

  • 5 of 5

Pretty sure we witnessed history... The only time Hawaii had flash flood warnings for a straight week in 30 years. Still couldn’t have been more blessed to wake up to waves crashing on the shoreline every morning. This hidden gem is truly the perfect getaway. Being in sales it’s hard to unwind and disconnect from the hustle and bustle. Once you open the gate to this beach front villa it becomes so much easier. From talking surf stories with the property manager Steve to hitting up all the local food trucks.... couldn’t have asked for a better time. Also - Make sure you watch Forgetting Sarah Marshal before heading out here. (Filmed right around the corner) Guarantee you’ll be happier booking this place over anything near Honolulu. Thanks again Michelle.

Best house in Hawaii...maybe anywhere.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Michelle’s multiple times now/ at least 4. I swear that worst part is when it’s time to leave. It’s not only the perfect location it’s as comfortable as my own home. Fantastic hosts, great decor, giant soft bed, great Wi-fi & Apple TV, parking, jacuzzi and the view is beyond.

Like I said, only bad part is that once you stay there you won’t wanna stay anywhere else on the island.Ever.

Look no further for the best place to stay on the North Shore. Beautiful property and gorgeous home.

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to spend our honeymoon here. Loved everything about this place. Great location, beautiful, beachfront property overlooking the surf and the reef below. We saw whales most days off the deck. Michelle and her family have created the coziest, user friendly home that was a pleasure to wake up to every day. Decorated beautifully, you won't want to leave. This place is dreamy. The hot tub overlooking the ocean is amazing, and lots of surfboards and kayaks for your use. We can't wait to come back!

Great stay in the perfect location

  • 4 of 5

This home at Chun’s Reef was the perfect place for our first visit to Oah’u. To have breakfast and evening drinks on the deck overlooking the ocean surfers and even a whale spotting one afternoon was amazing. The house and outdoor amenities are every thing you can ask for to enjoy this location. Michele and family were very easy to work with to arrange everything and in sharing tips on local things to do.

When we have the opportunity to get back to Oahu we definitely would look to come back here.

Best Location + Gorgeous Property and Home

  • 5 of 5

We spent 6 wonderful days in this home and LOVED everything about it. Awesome house, beautiful decor, wonderful beach, plus fabulous North Shore location. Cleaning and maintenance people were very helpful although we did not have any issues at all. The home is VERY well equipped with everything you will need to have an amazing time in Oahu! Thank you Michelle for sharing your little piece of paradise.

Was our sixth HomeAway or Airbnb beach rental experience. The best by far!!!!

  • 5 of 5


The location and beach access were incredible. The house was clean, extremely comfortable and nicely appointed. The kitchen was well stocked and made dining in along with it’s preparation quite easy. The short drive into Haleiwa made it convenient for shopping, all types of dining as well great people watching. We spent hours on the deck enjoying the pounding surf, surfers and beach traffic. One note is the proximity to the main highway for light sleepers but not a issue for any of our group. Thank you very much for sharing your beautiful home!

We’ll be back for more visits.
