About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

PARADISE BY THE SEA offers a unique and truly authentic Hawaiian experience. This beachfront Condominium has one of the most incredible ocean views on the island, with spectacular sunrises and a breathtaking moonrise over the Blue Pacific.

Take a refreshing dip in our oceanfront swimming pool and a leisurely stroll along the coast and enjoy the forever views of the glorious Blue Pacific. Swim with the turtles or snorkel alongside the tropical fish on a beach that is reef-protected with calm waters that are almost always perfect. In the winter months, sit on your private lanai and watch the whales frolic, while the morning mist lifts gently over the mountains, never too cold a day to swim in Hawaii Nei. At day’s end, relax with a movie from our extensive video library while enjoying the gentle tradewinds at PARADISE BY THE SEA.

We are located on a tropical white pristine beach on the North Shore of Oahu, in the coastal town of Punaluu approximately 30 miles from Honolulu and the hustle and bustle of Waikiki, and minutes from the Polynesian Cultural Center, Turtle Bay Golf Course and World Famous Surfing Beaches. Take the southern route and we are approximately 25 minutes from Kaneohe, a town with a number of restaurants, a mall, (Macy’s, Sears) two shopping centers, and two multiplex cinemas. Directly across the mall you will find Starbucks, Blockbuster, Longs Drugs, and Safeway Grocery. Drive 25 minutes along the northern coastal scenic route and past the surfing beaches, and enter the famous North Shore, and Historic Haleiwa, a quaint old town that offers dining, art galleries, surf shops, lots of fun shopping, and a true taste of the old Hawaii Nei.

This oceanfront condo is in a nine-story condominium complex, and is an one bedroom (sleeps two to five people),(900 sq. ft) one bath, oceanfront unit on the 5th floor with a private lanai, incredible views, gentle tradewinds and the sound of surf right outside your door. This is a secured building with keyed entrance to stairways and elevators, free assigned on site parking, and free WiFi.

Beautifully appointed, decorated in Hawaiiana motif, this unit is fully furnished, with a fully-equipped kitchen, ceramic tile floors, Corian countertops, new appliances, full-size refrigerator with ice maker, ceramic cooktop stove/oven, microwave, dishwasher all cooking utensils, dishes, silverware, toaster, coffeemaker, automatic rice cooker, electric mixer, 45 inch color TV, ( living Room) Cablevision, CD, DVD, VCR, Video/DVD library, ceiling fans, iron, ironing board, hair dryer, remote phone, and full-size washer/dryer.

About Elizabeth Knake

About the owner: Betty, born and reared in Kailua, Hawaii (retired banker) Richard (licensed contractor) hails from Illinois and has been President of the Condo association since 2005 and Betty is treasurer. We sold the condo in 2009 and continue to manage it for the new owner. We have 3 other condos in the same complex as well.

Elizabeth Knake purchased this condo in 2006

Why Elizabeth Knake chose North Shore Oahu

As a child, Betty spend time on the North Shore and has fond memories of the days gone by. For Richard, it was love at first sight when he gazed at the beautiful secluded pristine beach. Perfect for friends and family.

What makes this condo unique

Beautiful, secluded safe beach, white sands, can walk for miles, great snorkeling and swimming in a reef protected area. Best place to rest, relax and unwind and realize there is actually 24 hours in a day!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Betty:

I hope you are well, and my deepest apologies for not contacting with you before. I also hope for a future filled with guests at your condo. Our experience at your place was phenomenal. I am pretty sure you remember me mentioning that this was our first time in Hawaii; well, having your condo as a place to sleep made our visit very special and fun. We felt like we were at our own home, anything we needed, we found there, from a toaster to help prepare our breakfast to a beach bag to help us on our visits to the beach. The way your condo is equipped describes you as a thoughtful and caring person. We felt like you planned a vacation for your yourself, put it on a silver plate and handed it to us. I wish I could find a special word that will summarize the wonderful time we spent in a truly piece of paradise. Meanwhile THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH.

Best of luck on whatever you do to help other people enjoy life while admiring nature. Sorry, I don't know how to give you a rating. But my rating is 5 stars!

We had reserved this condo for March 18 but we were able to fly in on the 17th and Betty was able to get us in our condo a day ahead without any trouble. We woke up to beautiful, breathtaking views. The condo was fully stocked with everything we needed. Yes it's a little out of the way from some of the attractions but then your on vacation, so why does it matter? We were able to see whales breach from our lanai and watch the sun come up. Breathtaking. The only issues we had was on the second night my husband casually said " this isn't the condo we thought we were getting", and it dawned on me it wasn't. We didn't bother Betty with this cause it didn't matter that much. We still had a great place to stay.

Here is my one and only main issue. I hate bugs! Yes, I know wherever you go there are bugs but I don't expect or want them in the place I stay in. We had termites. All over our clothes, bags and shoes. Yes I understand it's a older building, but I HATE bugs! We contacted Betty and she did let you us know that they had sprayed for them.

All in all it was a great place for families.

Owner's Response: Aloha to our potential guests! While I am delighted our guests were able to enjoy their vacation in the islands and stay with us, I must admit that I am extremely disappointed in the review left as I take pride in the accommodations offered to our guests. The condo does not have any bugs, nor did I do a bait & switch on the guest leaving the review. The condo reserved was the same condo rented. In addition, at no time was I ever contacted regarding any bugs in the condo. The only question I had from the guest who left the review, was a problem with WiFi connection, and which was promptly addressed. To address the termites. Once a year around March-April the termites will swarm for approximately one week to find nesting. This is on all the islands, not just on Oahu and not in just our condo, which the review left others to believe. I notify my guests prior to their arrival should they encounter any termites. It's hard to determine exactly when they will arrive. Please see email below sent to guests prior to their arrival in the Spring of the year. Warmest aloha, Elizabeth (Betty) Knake Property Manager and Owner ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Aloha! In the last few days we noticed termite wing droppings on the lanai and on the screens and grounds of the complex and our condo.This usually happens once a year for about a week, and might be gone by the time you arrive. For a few hours after sunset on nights when the air is warm and still, you may find termites flying around outdoor lights and sometimes even indoor lights, televisions and computer screens. This is true for all the Hawaiian islands, Tahiti, Australia, the southern states, etc. where the humidity is higher. They are not dangerous or harmful in any way. If you happen to see any flying termites, the best solution is to keep the screens/ doors closed and turning off as many lights as possible. Warmest aloha, Betty

Love Pat's at Punaluu

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Betty! We had a great time and loved staying in your beautiful condo. Everything we needed was there. The condo is clean and well stocked. It was humid while we were there and Betty brought us a new, powerful fan that kept us very comfortable. She responded to questions quickly and took care of everything we needed. This is our second stay in this complex and we plan to stay again when we go to Oahu. We have 2 kids and they love ocean here. It is always quiet and the reef makes for a nice and easy swim with no waves. I would definitely stay again!!!

Best views! Ocean Front!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there for a week and it was more than we could have hoped for. The master bedroom had a huge bed and the couch pulled out to fit our 2 daughters and that bed was actually really comfortable. We brought my sister too and there was a roll away that she said was very comfy too. There was also a futon mat in the closet. The views are to die for! The ocean breeze cooled off the condo. I actually got cold at night which was nice. It came with everything you needed for the beach. The beach never had more than 2 other families but the majority of the time it was just us. It was a nice private beach. The waters here are nice and calm which is perfect for kids. In the morning we could snorkel and see fish. It was great to have a washer and dryer in the condo. My only wish was the master had the ocean views, but you can't have everything :) it was perfectly located for us. We didn't want to stay in the busy city of Waikiki. The restaurants around there were the best we ate at. It is a very secure condo, you can't even get in the elevator without your room key. Can't wait to go back.

Please note: I have a number of oceanfront condos in the same complex. If this condo is not available, please contact me. I may have another alternate condo available.

We are located on a tropical white pristine beach on the North Shore of Oahu, in the coastal town of Punalu’u approximately 30 miles from Honolulu and the hustle and bustle of Waikiki, and minutes from the Polynesian Cultural Center, Turtle Bay Golf Course and World Famous Surfing Beaches. A 30 minute drive to Haleiwa, a town filled with local style and country ambiance as well as cool surf shops and boutiques, understated restaurants and charming art galleries.

Here you’ll find surfers fueling up at the restaurants in its plantation era buildings before hitting the famous beaches of Waimea Bay, Ehukai (Banzai Pipeline) and Sunset Beach.
