Our Tropical Paradise is oceanfront and conveniently located between historic Haleiwa and Waimea Bay at the world famous Chuns Reef beach. Great swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, and surfing are right in the 'front yard.'
Our recently renovated home is fully furnished and offers panoramic ocean views and gorgeous sunsets from throughout the house and on the numerous lanais. You can watch the sea turtles and humpback whales swim in the warm clear turquoise blue water from your comfortable bed or the dining table.
The quiet tropical surroundings and soothing ocean sounds provide that relaxing experience found here on the Hawaiian Islands. - And a short 5 minute drive (or 2 mile walk) to historic Haleiwa Town offers art galleries, quaint shopping, and fine dining.

We chose this home because the beauty, setting, and views were unbelievable. The oceanfront location with great snorkeling and surfing in the 'front yard' was a plus. We also figured our children would enjoy the tide pools in the front. We liked the Chuns area as it was north of Haleiwa town by 2 miles yet easily accessible. And being more on the southern part of the North Shore meant a little better weather, less traffic, and easier access to town and the airport. We looked at 62 properties and bought this one. After all of these years, we're still in awe when we visit. We think that's special given the fact that we are coming from Del Mar, CA.

Amazing view with access to a gorgeous beach
We rented units A and G and had our family of 10 staying for the week. Property had everything we needed. The view is breathtaking and we would stay again.
We cannot say enough wonderful things about this property! It was the prefect vacation for our family. It was the prefect setting for our family, enough room, the beach at the backyard, turtles down the beach, close to everything and anything we wanted to do. Thank you so much for a memorable time!
Best Place to Stay on the North Shore!
We stayed here with my family and a couple of our friends. The view is amazing and I loved falling asleep to the waves crashing on the beach. The unit is clean and amenities are more than sufficient. We had a BBQ and got to see honu (sea turtles) just a few yards from our porch. There is a turtle beach down the road packed with other tourists trying to see one, but we had 5 at one time that we got to see sleeping on the beach. There were also several swimming in the ocean too. It's also not to far from a grocery store and the main part of North Shore. We are planning on going back sometime this year hopefully and will continue to keep coming back to this unit. It truly feels like our home away from home.
Amazing View, Outstanding Value!
We stayed in the unit for 6 nights. We LOVED this rental. With the open floorplan, there was a spectacular view from the kitchen, dining room, living room, lanai, and master bedroom. The place is very spacious and family friendly, not fancy, but very tastefully done, clean, and comfortable. It's a perfect location for all kinds of north shore activities, many within walking distance or a short drive away. The gated entrance and ample parking were a plus... the outdoor shower was great for keeping the sand outside.
There are surfers and kitesurfers on the beach nearby all day long, turtles come up on the rocks right out front every day. The beach just to the west is a gathering place for 20some hanu, and naturalists were there to log their activities and had very interesting information about each one.
We found the best snorkeling to be at Three Tables Beach, across from the Foodland, and it also had a nice beach for swimming.
The owner was very attentive to ensuring that everything was to our liking. This place exceeded our expectations and I would absolutely recommend it. Mahalo.
Best Place Ever!
This listing does not even begin to do this location justice. View from the lanai is just stunning. One of the best parts of each day is sipping coffee and watching the sun rise and then watching the sun set with a cold glass of wine. Just to the right of the house is Chun's Reef, a surfing hot spot. You can watch surfers and paddle boarders from dawn to dusk.
As several reviewers have said, this is a turtle mecca! Climb down the rocks behind the house and walk to the left and you will find a small cove just crawling with sea turtles (for those who don't know - Hawaii has very strict laws regarding their turtles - you must remain 6+ feet away from them. Be respectful of these giant beautiful creatures!)
Chun's Reef is an excellent swimming beach, just a 2 houses away. You can see the pristine sandy beach in the pictures.
Met several of the neighbors during our week here and they were all really nice.
Now for the house. Super clean. Our upstairs neighbors left a few days before we did and we saw the housekeeper carrying a load of bedspreads downstairs to the laundry for cleaning. The biggest "ick" factor for most travelers are the bedspreads, but it appears this place actually washes them along with the sheets between each tenant. Big PLUS. Master bedroom gets tons of air circulation and the smaller rooms are pretty breezy. Portable fans are provided for those needing extra breeze. 2 charcoal grills are provided (burgers and hot dogs just taste so much better when grilled in Hawaii while looking at the ocean) and kitchen is well stocked.
Now for the sites. Waimea Falls Park is close by - beautiful flora and fauna and swimming is allowed at the waterfall, providing conditions are safe for swimming - call ahead to make sure. It's a little humid in the valley so the addition of the golf cart a few years ago is a huge plus. They also have a farmer's market on Thurs afternoon. Veggies, fruits, jellies, soaps, etc. Bring cash as all vendors do not accept cards. Shark's Cove has excellent snorkeling with lots and lots of fish. Invest in an underwater digital camera and a pair of reef walkers. Great places for snorkling: Laniakea Beach (just a few houses from here), Sharks Cove and Turtle Bay Beach.

We took our four children, 2 children in-law and 2 grandchildren over Spring Break. Kept the windows open the entire time. I can't get enough of the sound of the surf. There were turtles on the beach, whales playing in the distance and surfers almost 24/7. The property is the quintessential beach home. We noticed while on a beach walk that it is one of the few homes in the area with grass on the beach side. The 1-yr old and 3-yr old loved that. There is a gate to the property so parents only have to keep an eye on the ocean side for wandering children. We rented bikes and rode in to Haleiwa for the farmers market, beach park and lunch. We visited the Polynesian Cultural Center on our last day and found out that the ticket we had purchased allowed for multiple visits within a 2 week period. Our mistake for not paying closer attention, we would have liked to gone back. The babies loved the Dole Plantation and we all enjoyed our "Dole Whip". Our son rented a surf board in Haleiwa each day that we didn't do the "tourist" thing. It was very convenient. Of course Pearl Harbor was a requirement. We rotated with our kids in cooking meals and that worked out beautifully for everyone. If you did nothing but sit in the back yard and watched the show that nature and a group of devoted surfers put on for you it would be well worth the week. My husband got 2 books read in that back yard. It was cloudy in the evening the first few days we were there, but when we saw that first sunset it took our breaths away. We did go into Honolulu and did the drive by at Waikiki and the entire family was thrilled that we were not caught up in that "mess" and had our very own house and only had to share the beach with a few locals. If there is a downside the traffic on Kamehameha got pretty backed up on the weekends with all the turtle and surfer watchers. Since my husband and I are both from beach communities originally we knew this was to be expected.
