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.

This property is simply amazing! It's in the perfect location and the views could not be any better. We stayed in the main house and it had everything you could possibly need. If you are planning on staying on the North Shore, look no further, this is the perfect rental.

Amazing location right on the beach!

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at Chun's Reef was perfect! If you are looking for a place in a quiet surfing town, outside the craziness of Hololulu/Wiakiki and right on the beach, this is the place you want. The house is just a few steps from a great beach that was never busy. We watched turtles in the surf, whales, and surfers all day. We were there in February and the surf/current was super strong. I would not have been able to let kids swim there. The beds were comfortable (a big thing to me) and the house was very clean. The kitchen has everything you need, except for an oven. There is a toaster oven that we used for French bread a frozen pizza. The location is great and close to restaurants, activities and sightseeing. We were in the main house, other visitors stayed in the units below. Hardly saw them at all.

PROS: Close to everything you need, right on the beach, clean, great beds, beautifully decorated, lots of beach equipment provided (coolers, chairs, surf boards, snorkel gear, towels)

CONS: No oven, right on busy road and you can hear road noise in master bedroom (We slept fine, but a light sleeper might not like this), parking provided but can be very tight, 2nd sleeping area has no privacy, deck is a little small and was in the shade all day. These things were minor and really made no impact on our stay, just putting it here in case it is important to you.

Paradise found

  • 5 of 5

I doubt there is a more perfect rental in all of Oahu. The adults were happy. The kids were happy. It was hard to pull ourselves away to go explore the rest of the island!

Every day we were welcomed to the ocean by sea turtles. One day we counted 13 at once! The turtles became such a huge part of our time there that we looked for souvenirs specifically with sea turtles on them.

I was concerned with the main area not having AC, but with all of the windows open, the breeze flowed through and even got cold at night. The master bedroom AC pumped out ice cold air too.

We were thrilled with the different areas of the property. Around every turn was some other way to relax and enjoy the surroundings. The jacuzzi and cabana bar were loved by all for sure, but at least one nap was taken in the hammock.

Having all of the beach equipment provided was a huge cost (and sanity) savings for our group! Beach toys, beach towels, plenty of chairs, snorkel equipment, ice chests, kayaks, yolo and surf boards,..... We were in awe of the thought that went into making sure a guest had everything they would need. Even binoculars!

We also took surf lessons from North Shore Surf Girls. Their tent was set up maybe 10 steps down the beach. They were so great with our group and everyone got up on boards. We highly recommend them to future guests.

As a side note, we booked our family in the main house and other family members booked the studio below us with their kids. We loved the separation but also had our main area to cook or hang out. Their place was great too though!

We can't thank you enough for opening up your beautiful home for our family. It would be hard to top this place if and when we return to Oahu. I expect the kids will be begging to return. I would not hesitate to book this same property. We loved this little piece of paradise!!
