Holiday Rental House
Located on the North Shore of Oahu 2.7 miles from Haleiwa and one mile from Waimea Bay, this 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom (one in garage) home is situated on one of the most beautiful beaches on Oahu. Soft, white sand and a protected reef make this half-mile long beach perfect for exploring, swimming, snorkeling and stand up paddling (SUP) in the summer. Hawaiian green sea turtles are often spotted swimming and sometimes sunning on the beach. Humpback whales winter in Hawaii and are often spotted in the distance from our yard. Some of the world's best surfers also gather during this season to slide across the North Shore's amazing and famous waves. Popular Chun's Reef and Alligator's surf breaks are just steps away and you can enjoy a glass of wine and watch surfers backlit by beautiful sunsets...Located on the North Shore of Oahu 2.7 miles from Haleiwa and one mile from Waimea Bay, this 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom (one in garage) home is situated on one of the most beautiful beaches on Oahu. Soft, white sand and a protected reef make this half-mile long beach perfect for exploring, swimming, snorkeling and stand up paddling (SUP) in the summer. Hawaiian green sea turtles are often spotted swimming and sometimes sunning on the beach. Humpback whales winter in Hawaii and are often spotted in the distance from our yard. Some of the world's best surfers also gather during this season to slide across the North Shore's amazing and famous waves. Popular Chun's Reef and Alligator's surf breaks are just steps away and you can enjoy a glass of wine and watch surfers backlit by beautiful sunsets right from our back yard. At Hale Moana we are witness to the impressive and fascinating interaction of land and sea. The shoreline may dramatically change from summer to winter, year to year. The tides, currents, waves and wind are constantly rearranging the beach, and sand levels will vary significantly and unpredictably over time. All rooms have ocean views and are beautifully decorated Hawaiian style. The expansive doors along the ocean side of the house open to reveal a breathtaking view of the ocean. The home sleeps 4 to 6 guests. The oceanfront master bedroom has a queen-sized bed and a spectacular view. The 2 twin beds in the second bedroom can be converted into 1 king-sized bed. The den has a queen-sized sofa bed and flat screen TV and DVR. a second flat screen TV is in the living room. The main bathroom has a separate shower, basin and toilet. An additional shower, basin and toilet are located in the garage - perfect for washing off beach sand. Cooking is a pleasure in the ocean view kitchen with glass cabinet doors, ceramic stove top and Corian countertops. The kitchen has a dishwasher, garbage disposal and microwave oven. We have ceiling fans in every room. Linen for 6 is provided. A full-sized washer and dryer is located in the garage along with beach chairs, boogie boards and charcoal barbecue grill. There is a high-speed wireless Internet connection. For added relaxation the library provides many book choices including the latest Hawaii guide books. Everything has been thought of to make your vacation stay at 'Hale Moana', the House of the Sea, relaxing and memorable. The beautifully landscaped yard is great for sunbathing, barbecuing and sunset watching. Access to the beach involves a flight of stone stairs, and we do not have accommodations for those with significant physical challenges. Upstairs owner's room visible in photos is always vacant and locked. You have the whole property to yourselves. Our fenced and tree lined property is set between the road and the sea. Our guests find that the sights and sounds of the ocean easily win their attention and hearts. The North Shore is known world wide for its dramatic winter surf. Be aware that swimming in most places during big wave season is best left to experts and children should be closely supervised. In the winter, when the big waves are breaking, put your feet up on our wall and watch the spectacular surfing show. Our rustic home, built in 1952, is beloved by many, and guests rave about the spectacular views and situation. However, in the winter, it can be akin to a sea going vessel, with salty breezes sweeping off the ocean. Please understand it is not like a hermetically sealed hotel room polished with daily maid service. Rare severe storms may require some attention to prevent rain from seeping under our panoramic doors and louvers. Our situation among North Shore rural greenery makes a few insect encounters inevitable and occasional intruders may penetrate our barrier of screens and regular professional pest control services. Our location has all the quiet, quaint charm of the North Shore, and yet it is close to Haleiwa in one direction and a good grocery store and Starbucks in the other direction. Nearby Historic Haleiwa town has surf and clothing shops, art galleries and a variety of restaurants. World famous Waimea Bay, Sunset Beach and Banzai Pipeline are nearby. You will also want to visit Hawaii's Number One visitor attraction, the Polynesian Cultural Center. We have been licensed by the State of Hawaii since 1987.
