About the property

1 Bedroom 2 Bathroom Beach Front Condo

Aloha and welcome to Haleiwa and the North Shore of Oahu!

We know that traveling (with or without keiki (children)) can sometimes be stressful so we want to help make your vacation in paradise filled with great memories.

Our newly and completely renovated (June 2014) Hawaiian Style condo is located just past Haleiwa Ali'i Beach Park on a peaceful, pristine, and uncrowded strand of beach with views of Puaena Point and Kaena Point. Haleiwa Surf is the only beachfront condominium property in Haleiwa. There are two buildings on the property. One is closer to the beachfront than the other (ours is the one in the back), but still has a beautiful ocean view. The North Shore of Oahu is known for its legendary winter surf and professional surf competitions. Home to world famous Haleiwa Beach, Sunset Beach, Waimea Bay and the infamous Pipeline. You can walk to Ali’i Beach, where Bay Watch Hawaii was filmed and where the first jewel of the Triple Crown of Surfing Contest is held. While the North Shore is known for its monster winter surf, the beach fronting the condo is protected by a reef. A perfect beach for families. Great for snorkeling, swimming and surfing. There are several surf breaks within walking distance and other spots within a 15-20 minute drive. Enjoy running or romantic walks on the isolated sandy beach. Shade trees offer respite and an outside shower is conveniently located on the front lawn. There is a large lawn area for lounging and playing. BBQ and picnic tables are located on the ocean side. Perfect for happy hour and sunsets!

Our 1 bedroom/2 bathroom condo (comfortably sleeps 2 to 5 people, but we can bring an additional futon for the floor if there is another person-please inquire). The Master bedroom has a queen bed and an attached full bathroom. The great room (located ocean side) has a queen size futon, which folds out into a bed. There is also a pune'e (day bed same size as a twin bed) that can be used to sleep on. The ocean can be seen from the great room. Both bathrooms have shower stalls tiled with natural stone (so not slippery) with a 12” curb so works well for bathing the kids! We can also provide a baby tub, Pack and Play, car seat, and/or stroller for families visiting with infants/toddlers at no additional charge. The kitchen is fully equipped... everything you need for preparation, serving, and storage. WiFi and basic cable are included as well as an iHome docking station (in bedrooom), speaker/docking station ( in great room), a 39” flat screen TV and DVD player. A binder with local restaurant menus, local guide books and recommended must-see/must-do are provided. You can enjoy pupus (appetizers), drinks, and the sunset from the lanai (balcony) overlooking the ocean. We supply linens, pillows, bath and beach towels, beach chairs, beach umbrella, beach toys, collapsible cooler bag, body boards, and snorkeling equipment. There are 4 coin operated washer and dryers located on the premises. Bikes (beach cruisers), surf boards, SUP’s, and/or a kayak are available for rent. Our daughters, Keola and twins, Nohea and Kahea are available for surf/SUP lessons and even babysitting-please inquire. We also try to leave basic food items from the previous guest such as coffee & filters, sugar, tea, ketchup, jellies, condiments, bottled water, etc... If it is good we'll leave it for you so that you won’t have to start completely from scratch.

We are within a 1 mile distance to Historic Haleiwa town. Convenient for grocery shopping, restaurants, and souvenirs. Great hiking trails are also a short drive. Our daughters are members of a hula halau (school) and are available for shows/lessons (donation). Their kumu hula (hula teacher) lives on a Lo’i Kalo (Taro farm). It is nearby and available for field trips (donation to hula halau). The airport is approximately 40 to 45 minutes away. Honolulu/Waikiki is at least an hour drive. If your stay involves travel by bus, the bus stops are within a few minutes walking. If you do not plan on renting a car, pick up/drop off to and from airport can be arranged-please inquire. Golfing, skydiving, fishing tours, surf and SUP lessons/rentals are all available close-by! North Shore Wellness practitioners (yoga, massage, acupuncture, etc) also have ample services available in the North Shore area.

Our family took great pride in renovating our unit ourselves so we kindly ask that you take care of everything as if it were your own. This is a NON-SMOKING unit (even on lanai). There is a designated smoking area in front of the parking lot with a picnic table and on the beach. Pets are not allowed in unit or on the property.

We live right down the road so if there is anything you need, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Mahalo and we look forward to meeting you,

The Kahaulelio ohana

Wonderful beachfront paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Our entire family (two adults, a 4 year old) loved our stay here ! The condo is lovely - comfortable furnishings, clean and modern kitchen and bathrooms, and incredibly well stocked with everything you need - including for kids. We had some rain during our trip and the covered lanai was the perfect place to lounge away a rainy afternoon watching the waves, reading and playing cards. The beach is steps away and the water is perfect for snorkeling, swimming and boogyboarding. Haleiwa is close by and has everything you need without the bustle of a big tourist city.

Iris and her family were incredibly welcoming and helpful - the perfect hosts. We can't wait to return next year:)

Owner's Response: Aloha Jenn, Mahalo for taking the time to write a review. Sorry for the weather (you just never know with mother nature!), but glad it was back to beautiful weather your last few days. It was so nice spending time with your ohana. Elia had fun playing with your 'lil guy, Alec. We'll definitely get him up and riding on a surfboard next time! Take care and a hui hou (until next time), Iris

Lovely waterfront condo

  • 5 of 5

Great beachfront location. The condo was clean, well stocked and homey.

Nice snorkelling out front and close to major surfing beaches.

Haleiwa is a funky surf town with excellent restaurants.

Iris, the owner, was helpful and available.

Great location, nice clean condo

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week staying in this condo! The beach just steps away is beautiful! We spent every morning and every evening watching the waves! The condo was clean and organized and well stocked with kitchen items. When we left the condo I was always surprised to see other people, it was a nice quiet place to stay

The owner, Iris, was a pleasure to work with!

It's a great location, close to many wonderful things on the north shore.

Great location, great condo, great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 8 nights and this condo was perfect for our family of 4 with two teen aged kids. Iris and her family are lovely people and excellent hosts. The condo was comfortable and provided everything you could think of. The location was ideal for morning walks into town for a delicious coffee, shopping, grocery or dinner. The beach in front provided hours of fun and beautiful views and the bigger beach 2 minutes away was great for bigger waves and family gatherings. The location also was a great central location for driving trips to the north shore beaches, valley hikes, farmer's markets etc. We had such an amazing holiday on our first time to Hawaii and would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: Aloha Charlin, Mahalo for taking the time to write a review. We're so happy that you enjoyed your time here and that we were able to help your ohana make some great memories (I'm sure your son will remember getting douced with a water balloon by mom for his birthday!). Mahalo and hope we meet again, iris

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with my family here for Christmas and it was wonderful. The condo had everything we needed including beach toys, beach towels and boogie boards. Not to mention, Iris provided decorated palm trees for Christmas and Christmas lights. You can see the beach from the porch and the proximity made it so convenient. The town of Haleiwa itself is charming and it was a short drive away. We had the best time and I would definitely recommend this condo.
