About the property

Chuns Reef Beach House - Garden 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 just steps away. We provide many beach toys for the use of our guests including sand chairs, umbrellas, snorkel gear, boogie boards, stand up paddle 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. The entire home was completely refurnished with beautiful Balinese furnishings.

***THIS IS A SHARED PROPERTY. THERE ARE THREE SEPARATE PRIVATE UNITS ON THE PROPERTY*** Each unit feels completely separate and private from the other units and everyone has their own private lanai. Please inquire about oceanfront units if interested.

The garden studio is a stand alone studio located down a garden path at the rear of the property adjacent to Kamehameha Highway. There is traffic noise but it does quiet down at night. Many of the homes on the North Shore are built along this highway. This is the main 2 lane highway that runs through the entire North Shore. The garden studio features a sleeping area with a comfortable queen pillow top mattress, down bedding and fresh white linens. There is a 46' Sony flat screen TV in the sleeping area with DVD player.

THE GARDEN STUDIO DOES NOT HAVE AN OCEAN VIEW. Garden studio guests have shared use of the common areas including the oceanfront jacuzzi, beach toys and direct beach access.

There is an adjacent sitting area with a dining table for two and fully equipped kitchenette. The kitchenette features a mini fridge, stainless microwave oven, Breville counter top oven, blender, coffee maker, and cook top burner. The kitchenette is fully stocked with pots/pans, dishes and all utensils.

The garden studio features an in-wall air conditioner.

There is a small enclosed private lanai attached to the studio. It is for garden studio guests only. The covered lanai has been remodeled with a new roof and the lanai is nicely covered from the rain. The lanai features a Balinese daybed, table and chairs and fish pond. There is a BBQ for garden studio guests to use located by the oceanfront gazebo.

The garden studio bathroom is detached from the studio and located outside down a short lighted walkway. The walkway is lit with motion detector lights at night. The bathroom features a shower. The bathroom is for the exclusive use of the garden studio guests and features a key pad door lock.

There are also 3 outdoor showers on the property. The one nearest to the garden studio bathroom features hot water.

High speed wireless internet is provided throughout the property.

There is a front load washer and dryer for guest use.

The above ground beachfront jacuzzi is for the use of all guests on the property.

Iron and ironing board in room.

5 night minimum - please inquire regarding shorter stays.

Perfect little beach house!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Chun's reef for almost a week and loved it! We were able to kayak, surf, and snorkel at the beach right in front of the house. We are definitely coming back and would highly recommend it to anyone. The bathroom is detached and we were initially worried about that but it wasn't really a problem. The kayak paddles were damaged and broken on our arrival but we texted Michelle Monday evening. She order new paddles and had them delivered two days later (Wednesday mid-morning). She also apologized saying that if she had known that they were damaged that she would have purchased replacements sooner. Thanks again Michelle. Mahalo

The property and location are perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This house is seriously a dream. It’s maintained so well and the location is so ideal. Evenings watching the sunset over the ocean on your own private patio. Taking a walk along the beach in the mornings as the surfers get ready to head out to Chaco’s? (That’s the name of the surf spot in front of Chun’s reef) . Checking out the sea turtles basking right up the road. You can’t go wrong booking this place!

A word to the wise: don’t rent a super large SUV if you choose to stay here. The driveway is too small to navigate one. Also, the garden studio is sooo awesome but if you have any sensitivities to dampness this place isn’t for you. It’s sort of tucked back in a (very well furnished) nook and doesn’t get a lot of direct sun. If you’re okay with that though - the amenities on the property make it a worthwhile sacrifice!

Amazing property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed four nights in the garden studio and had a great stay. The property location is amazing and we spent each morning eating breakfast in the garden watching the waves. Michelle was easy to deal with and responded promptly. Would stay again.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Would definitely stay in the main house again- its perfection.

The cottage was not a good experience, so we moved for the last 3 days.

As we opened the gate to the property we knew we were in Paradise . The views were amazing!!! We stayed in the garden cottage , which is very much a "beach house" It is located toward the back of the house, it does not have a ocean view. It does have a comfortable queen size bed, cozy kitchen and cute lanai, the bathroom is not attached to the cottage and just a short walk down the walkway. We utilized the common sitting area over looking the ocean and ate all our meals in the gazebo, which has a bar as we enjoyed the beautiful ocean view. There is a gate that takes you right to the sand , the property has all the water toys you need to enjoy as well as sand chairs to enjoy your time at the beach. We had a wonderful time and look forward to staying here again!

Amazing property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the garden studio and found it adorable and quite adequate. It’s tucked away out of the sun which is a perfect reprieve after spending the day in the unrelenting Hawaiian sun. The day bed next to the Koi pond is a heavenly place for a siesta. The jacuzzi and sitting areas are stunning and allow a perfect view to watch the surf. We can’t wait to return!
