- THE CAPTAIN'S HOUSE -

Welcome to The Captain’s House, a historic home that sits on one of the most stunning beaches on the island! This newly renovated home has three bedrooms with a/c, a designer kitchen, and lots of outdoor areas for dining and lounging. A wall of windows runs the length of the home, affording endless ocean views and allowing soft sea breezes. The Captain's House has a covered lanai for outdoor dining, and the sun deck overlooking the beach is the perfect spot to watch the sun sink into the Pacific every evening. Other amenities include wi-fi, TV’s and a/c in every bedroom, privacy fence with gate, off street parking, washer and dryer, BBQ grill & outdoor shower. Home sleeps a maximum of 8 guests; please see below for a detailed description of bedrooms.- THE HISTORY - This home was built by Captain McClay in the late 19th century. On a trip to Hawaii from the East Coast, the Captain used as ballast the lumber he would eventually re-purpose to build one of the North Shores first beach homes. He chose a protected beachfront area unrivaled in beauty to build upon. For generations it was home to the Captain’s descendants, and the current owners have been caring for the home since the 1960’s. For the first time in its history, the Captain’s House is now available to island visitors.

The home has been carefully restored and modern amenities added; including a renovated kitchen and a/c in every bedroom. In decorating the home, the owners kept all original furnishings that were custom to it. There are original vintage fixtures along with new, as to show the natural progression the home's age. There is a piece of furniture in the home representing every decade from 1920 on! The Captain’s House is filled with local art, including that of the Captain’s granddaughter, Emily Giese, a ceramicist whose work can still be seen in the kitchen and dining room table tile, and also in concrete work outside.

- THE BEACH -

Chun’s Beach is an absolute favorite among locals and those in the know, yet never crowded. The location is prime – the spot was chosen not only for its beauty, but also for the protection provided. Many homes advertise as being located at Chun’s beach, but The Captain’s house is one of only three that actually enjoys this privilege. The beach in front of the home is wide with soft sand. During calm weather the swimming and snorkeling are divine, and you will find sea turtles bobbing next to you in the water regularly. Close by surf breaks are Chun’s, Lani’s , Holton’s , Jocko’s and Leftovers. Waimea is a mile down the road, Sunset Beach just four miles away.

- THE NEIGHBORHOOD -

You’ll see why travelers return yearly to the North Shore once you experience the laid back beach lifestyle and endless Aloha. The activities nearby are endless, highlights include excellent hiking trails, snorkeling, stand up paddling, shark tours, zip–lining, yoga on the beach, golfing, spa services, and luau’s. The friendly town of Haleiwa is located just two miles down the road for grocery shopping, restaurants, and boutiques. The nearest waterfall is a mile away at Waimea Rainforest. The airport is 28 miles, Pearl Harbor 26 and Waikiki 36 miles. BEDROOMS :

Reviewer Comments:

The Caprain's House is AMAZING! The beach out front is almost private. There were very few people ever on it. The house has quirky charm. We loved it. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you will ever need. We had a party of 6 and we had plenty of room at all times. We loved watchinng sunsets from the deck right on the beach. We were visited regularly by a chicken family who quickly became part of our daily favorites. We were close to many sights and beautiful beaches. I can't say enough good things about this place and all it's beauty! If I am ever fortunate enough again to come to Hawaii I would stay here again and again!!!

Reviewer Comments:

Couldn’t have asked for a more perfect location on the north shore. Fun surfing right in front of the house. Even surf lessons! House was old, but well decorated and very charming. We were warned about the higher level of insects on the north shore but being from Kaneohe we thought we were prepared. Ants everywhere! How do ants get in a sealed loaf of bread! Definitely some periodic pest control would have helped considerably. At least they weren’t cockroaches. Only other complaint was the rationing of paper towels and toilet paper. Ran out on day 3. Overall a very pleasant experience.

Great house. Perfect location. The house is open and roomy with a great patio and deck. Located right on the beach and a 5 minute drive to the village where there are markets for groceries and excellent restaurants.

Reviewer Comments:

This property is located in the best spot ever on Chuns Reef. Front row and center to a supreme surf spot. It's arguably the best and most forgiving surf location for beginners and intermediates, and old timers such as myself. The house is right on the sand. Location Location Location With all that said, you must be prepared for the vintage and rustic house. We happen to love vintage and historic and this house is definitely that! It was very clean and the kitchen very well equipped. The furniture is really cool and the art and collectables very Hawaiian. BUT the upholstery, window treatments and dirty windows and screens are needing attention. A little white paint, woven shades and new fabrics would make this place amazing and I'd gladly pay more for that! However I would go back in its current state. It's a gem!

We had an amazing 5 days at this beach home. We were pleasantly surprised to see how clean and well stocked the home was. There was plenty of room for 4 adults and 2 kids. We enjoyed the view and the proximity to the beach. The beach was perfect, not crowed and even had a lifeguard. We also enjoyed the location, nice and quiet but not too far to enjoy all Oahu has to offer.
