About the property

Chuns Reef - BEACHFRONT/Oceanfront Studio - ***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 view Chuns and Jackos surf spots.

The Chuns Oceanfront Hideaway Studio is very private from the rest of the home and is located on the lower lever with an amazing covered beachfront lanai. The Chuns Oceanfront Hideaway Studio is cut into the lava rocks and is located under the house. Because it is surrounded on three sides by rock, it makes it extremely private. The covered lanai has spectacular beachfront views of the ocean. There is a beautiful hammock, teak bar table and chairs and Balinese daybed located on the lanai to capture the best views of the surf.

The Oceanfront Hideaway studio is a large studio with a beautiful king teak Balinese canopy bed with a comfortable pillow top mattress. All beds feature down comforters and pillows along with fresh white linens. The hideaway features a fully equipped kitchenette with countertop burner, Cusinart microwave oven, Cusinart coffee maker and Breville countertop oven. There is a sitting area with a down blend slipcover sofa and 46' Sony flat screen TV with Apple TV and DVD player. There is a small round teak dining table with 2 chairs. The bathroom features a shower. There is also a childrens bunk bed for two.

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

There is a beach light that can be turned on at night to light up the waves right in front of the studio.

There are fans and AC located within the studio.

High speed wireless internet is provided throughout the property.

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

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

There is an above ground beachfront jacuzzi and beach toys for the exclusive use of our guests.

1 car parking in the driveway per unit.

The surf was amazing to walk up to! We loved sitting outside in the morning watching the huge waves and drinking coffee. The only con was that it was a little dark given the studio location, but that was expected. The studio was very private, the owner was great to deal with, and we loved the location. The North Shore has the laid back Hawai’i feel we were looking for. Being right on the beach was just perfect!

Location, location, location

  • 5 of 5

You literally cannot get any more ocean front than this place. Beautiful teak furnishings and white linens also give it an exotic feel. We spent an entire day hanging out on the lanai - the most relaxing vacation ever. The host Michelle was very gracious and attentive (we had to cancel and reschedule) and the caretaker Steve stopped in to make sure everything was okay. Highly recommend.

WOW !!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in beach front studio for 2 1/2 weeks. It was great. The ocean is at your front door. You have access to beach. The room was well decorated. Everything worked. Michelle was helpful giving tips what to do/ where to eat. The north shore is as pretty as any place in the islands and not commercially developed with fast food chains or hotels except turtle bay. We will definitely go back.

Second Time Even Better

  • 5 of 5

For my wife and I, this is our second visit to this magical slice of paradise. This time around, we brought our two kids and their families. The look on their faces when we entered the property was priceless — as if they woke up on Christmas morning to all the presents under the tree. Our four-day stay was an experience of a lifetime! Perfect location. Excellent facilities and amenities. Easy access from Kam Hwy. A magical getaway from the hustle and bustle of Honolulu. It’s a place of dreams. The beach is literally steps away from the side gate with incredible views of the ocean. Sand, Sea, and Surf! We even saw a whale breach in the horizon! The night sky from the outdoor jacuzzi made for many romantic evenings. The next time we vacation here will not be soon enough! :-)

beachfront relaxation

  • 5 of 5

We made use of the abundance of watercraft (surfboards, stand up paddle boards, sea kayaks, snorkles and fins) that was provided.

Loved hanging out watching the surfers from the comfort of the hammock. The shaded patio area was simply perfect for simply kicking back and enjoying the beach vibe without getting sunburnt!

Great cooking facilities including BBQ. well equipped kitchenette and bathroom. Studio generously sized. Bed was comfortable and huge. Gorgeous gazebo overlooking the beach proper.

Michelle's tips on what to do on the North Shore were spot on!

Worth reminding other guests that Butterscotch (the cat) prefers his own biscuits over premium cuts of steak or fish!!

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and Thank you for having us - highly recommended!!

Prime location on the North Shore!

  • 4 of 5

Loved our stay at Chuns Reef! Prime location on the North Shore. We stayed within a 5 mile radius the entirety of our stay. The ocean front studio was absolute heaven! Every morning my husband and I enjoyed our breakfast and coffee on the lanai overlooking the ocean. In the evenings we used the grill and did the same thing. Chuns Reef which is right next to the house was a popular surfing spot this time around. We took some surfing lessons just steps from the home. For calmer water we drove a few minutes north to Waimea Bay. The beach gear was a bonus!!! We used the beach chairs and umbrellas daily! The only negatives (not really a negative, just slight nuisance maybe?) I have are specifically in the ocean studio the toilet pressure seemed to be lacking a little and those staying above us in the main house stomped quite a bit. Regardless, I would without a doubt stay here again in a heartbeat! We also met the ground care taker Mr. Scott Cook and the house keeper. Both were very kind and lovely. Butterscotch the house cat was a sweet baby, we fed her whenever she asked for food! Loved her as well (she has another cat friend she was hiding)!!! Thanks Michelle for such a beautiful stay at Chuns Reef!

Mahalo and Aloha!
