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 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.

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

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.

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 DOES NOT have a ocean view. Garden studio guests have shared use of the common areas including the oceanfront jacuzzi, beach toys and direct beach access.

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 are two sets of front load washers and dryers on the property.

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.

Beautiful property!!!

  • 5 of 5

This property was amazing!! It was just my hubby and I and we had a wonderful time. We had the bottom bungalow which was small, but just enough for the both of us. It had just what we needed. The bathroom is detached and just down the walkway. It was fine for us, but others may not like that. Like the other reviews say, bring a robe. It gets REALLY hot in the detached bathroom when getting ready. I ended up taking my belongings after showering back to our room to finish getting ready there. I think our room is the only one that has AC in the unit, and it works GREAT! You'll love the cat that is always there to greet you. My husband loved getting to feed it. Every morning I would make a cup of coffee and go sit out at the bar over looking the ocean. I could sit there all day! I would definitely visit Chuns Reef if I decided to visit again. I highly recommend it! If I could do it again I would book the middle part of the house with the hammock on the back deck. We were able to view it while staying there and it was so beautiful. Worth the extra hundred a night for sure! The nice lady who cleans the place was so nice to us and very helpful when it came to recommending places to go and see. Thanks again for a wonderful vacation

Beautiful, peaceful, best location on North Shore!!

  • 5 of 5

I am very hesitant to write a review as it should be written for this VRBO. Why? I know that if I write the review that this VRBO deserves it will always be booked & I will have problems finding an available date! We've stayed in rentals in six countries & 30+ in the US. This place has it all. Surfboards, beach chairs, snorkel eqt., etc. We also stayed in Waikiki for 3 nights and oh how we wished we would've stayed here he entire time! We hiked to the waterfalls, did the Dole tour, hit the shrimp food trucks daily. The onsite staff were excellent to work with. We were able to drop our luggage off early so we could go hiking. The sunsets are breath-taking from the backyard or the lanai. Husband surfed right out front every day. Sea turtles were sunning right down the beach. I can't say enough good about the location other than next year we will bring our family and rent the entire home! Thank you Michele for sharing your wonderful piece of paradise with us!

Absolute paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This stay was one of the most enjoyable holidays we have ever had! Before we even arrived we were impressed! Michelle sent us a huge list of tips and advice for our stay, including easy to read directions to the house on the north shore of the island!

When we arrived we couldn't believe our eyes, one of the most picturesque views ever! Sitting right over the ocean and palm trees with perfectly manicured green grass, hammock, jaccuzi and cabana in the front yard - what a view! The bungalow was tucked away like our own private escape with a gorgeous patio with fish pond, super comfy bed and lovely kitchenette.

We spent our days following Michelle's tips including visiting the turtles and Waimea bay beach and markets and most nights cooking in our kitchen or on the BBQ in the backyard from the shops just a short drive away. We even spotted some whales from the house!

Even though there were other guests in the other rentals, we felt completely comfortable and private the whole time - like our own slice of heaven!

10/10 was fabulous from start to finish, the ground staff were friendly and helpful with tips! Thanks so much Michelle, looking forward to visiting again very soon!

Amazing location.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay! We will be back! Two of us stayed in the garden studio and a few of our family members stayed in the upstairs main house. That space trumps them all! We want To stay up there next time! Thank you Michelle!! What an amazing trip. We purchased some boogie boards and donated them to your stash! Mahalo!
