AWESOME SUNSETS AT SUNSET BEACH - 2 UNITS, JACUZZI, POOL

Sunset Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 BR/1 B + Studio w/B, (Sleeps 6-8) 3 night minimum

HALE LUANA is the ideal destination on O'ahu's North Shore for those who value privacy, quiet relaxation, comfort and security. Tucked in against the side of a steep, high hill, inside a coded security gate on tastefully landscaped grounds of almost three acres, mornings are filled with the sound of birds and evenings with the sound of wind and the ocean.

Notes:

The calendar blocked out dates are for dates when both units are rented, if the dates aren't blocked, at least one of the two accommodations (or possibly both) are available.

There is no security/damage deposit fee. Damage and loss is to be accounted for using the honor system, informing the caretaker.

Both the suite and studio have panoramic ocean views, quality king size beds, 380 count cotton bed linen, tropical weight down comforters, Egyptian cotton bath and pool towels, 32' flat screen cable HDTV with premier movie and music channels, wireless high speed internet access ('free wi-fi') and telephones (party line with distinctive ring and on/off switches) with unlimited local,mainland and Canada calling. Essentials are provided: Nexus shampoo and conditioner, Neutrogena shower and bath gel, Q-tips and hair dryers.

There are 3 bicycles with chains and locks, 3 sets of snorkels, masks and fins for adults, 2 sets for children,6 boogie boards, 4 surf boards (for experienced surfers only!), 5 coolers, 6 beach chairs and 2 umbrellas, a large assortment of pool floats for toddlers to adults and 1 child's safety vest for the ocean, 1 for the pool. Pool towels may be taken to the beach.

Both units are supplied with all paper goods, clear wrap and foil, large and small ziplock bags, pepper and salt grinders, good quality plates, bowls and mugs, to-go mugs, s/s flatware, propane for the BBQ's.

A caretaker/groundskeeper lives on the top floor (enters in the evening, exits in the morning) through the suite's kitchen door - 8 steps to her stairs), is available by cell phone to answer any questions about your accommodations, where to eat, how to schedule a massage, hula lessons, arrange for private catering, surf and scuba lessons, hikes, the best luau, catamaran sailing, etc.. Private photographic helicopter charters on O'ahu and to outer islands can be a memorable part of your vacation.

Hale Luana is approximately 9 miles from Haleiwa, a 3 minute drive to Sunset Beach and a five minute drive to Turtle Bay Resort (great dinners at 3 good restaurants, a golf course designed by Arnold Palmer and a sheltered beach to be enjoyed when the waves are too big). Winter provides the best view of Sunset Beach and Sunset Point, whales and surf. Summer is when those who aren't experienced surfers can enjoy the water- swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving.

In the winter there is a sheltered beach 5 minutes away by car and there are: sky diving and helicopter rides, horseback riding, hiking and more, year-round. Waimea Valley (directly across from Waimea Bay) is 10 minutes away and the Polynesian Cultural center is 20 minutes away.

HALE LUANA HAS 2 SEPARATE UNITS:

THE SUNSET STUDIO: A large (25' x 14') main room with 3 glass walls (hillside garden on two sides, ocean view at the side, front and from the bed), a hallway to the laundry alcove and the bathroom (with shower). There's an outdoor gas grill (with a burner) and the kitchenette is newly installed; granite counter with 2 glass-top invection units, s/s cookware, a large microwave (microwave cookware), 4 slice toaster, blender, rice cooker, hot pot, coffee grinder, French press, espresso and coffee maker. New photos are not yet posted, available upon request. The TV has an adapter that allows you to watch DVD's using your laptop. There's a portable unit with speakers to play iPods and iPhones.

There's an under the counter refrigerator and another chilled compartment under the filtered water cooler. The bed is a pillow-top king size and the futon couch converts to a queen size bed. This space has been enjoyed by honeymooners, couples with and without children and 3 to 4 young adults traveling together. What guests staying here have said is 'it's been our own private world'.

THE SUNSET SUITE: Staying in the suite includes exclusive use of the living room, fully equipped gourmet kitchen, dining area and the deck. The suite bedroom is a corner room with a sliding door to the ocean facing deck. There's a CD library and an adapter for an iPod. There's also a portable player with speakers for iPods and iPhones. Ocean view from both the side and front of the bedroom, with sliding door/screen to the deck. The bed is king size and comfortable.

The suite is not 'small child friendly'; infants and older children are most welcome. (Parents with walking babies, toddlers, small children stay in the studio.)

On the same floor as the suite is the office/library. There is a door to the office from the rear deck for the caretaker to use (rarely - only when there's a cable related problem and access to the modem is needed) and a door between the kitchen and dining areas to go upstairs to her quarters. She's sensitive to the issue of privacy and makes herself scarce after showing you where everything is. (Note: To accommodate more than 1 or 2 guests in the suite. there's a queen size bed in the office. It is available @ 40. per day for 1, or 60. per day for 2.) There's a second washer and dryer for the use of suite guests. Guests staying here have enjoyed waking, saying they feel as though they found a home away from home, only better, and always hoping to return.

(For guests traveling with infants or babies, there is a port-a-crib with sheets, blankets and mobile, floor play mat/infant 'gym', floor seat, 2 strollers, a Pack 'n Play with sheets, a bathinette, a high chair and a diaper bag to take to the beach.)

At the pool there are 4 chaise lounges, 1 table with 6 chairs and an umbrella and 1 table with 2 chairs. The Jacuzzi runs 24/7 and has a hydraulic lift for the top.

The caretaker can make reservations for massages ($85), private hula lessons, bicycle rentals (if additional ones are needed), catered meals and chartered helicopter rides, etc., if you make arrangements in advance.

Please note that the calendar only reflects when both units are rented. Mahalo.

All that was promised and much more! Can't wait to return!

My husband and I enjoyed our stay in the suite portion of the property for almost a week. We found a peaceful oasis at Hale Luana from the time we first drove onto the property to the day we had to leave. The photos on the VRBO site do not lie and in fact do not quite do the property justice per what you will see, feel, hear and experience overall once you are there in person. Each morning we enjoyed incredible views sipping coffee and eating fresh tropical fruit on the lanai looking out over the lush gardens/grounds to the blue Pacific. The sunsets from the lanai were also spectacular and a great way to end a day of fun in the sun whether at North Shore beaches or the lovely pool. With your rental you enjoy ample pool/beach towels, Tommy Bahama beach chairs and umbrellas as well as a great supply of water sports equipment (boogie boars, snorkel gear, surfboards). Foodland grocery is nearby which made it easy to pick up our own food to prepare in the exceptionally well appointed kitchen. We also enjoyed going into nearby Haleiwa for shopping and ate at Cholo's Mexican Restaurant while also taking in eats at local food trucks, Ted's Bakery and Giovanni's shrimp truck (Kahuko). We did not eat at Haleiwa Joe's this trip, but recommend it as well. As mentioned in other reviews a most special benefit of Hale Luana is Louise. As caretaker of the property she will ensure all your needs are met. She is also delightful to get to know personally! You cannot go wrong with renting this truly Hawaiian mountainside getaway. And ... in the suite ... enjoy the great CD music collection at your disposal from traditional Hawaiian to Foo Fighters to fantastic Jazz including John Coltrane. You will be transported away from your everyday cares at the incredible Hale Luana! We can't wait to return!

Enchanting vacation home on the North Shore

  • 5 of 5
Hale Luana has some of the most magnificent views on the North Shore. Waking up to golden sunrises and surfers riding the Bonzai Pipeline is a great way to start a day full of outdoor adventures. Hale Luana even provided us with flippers, snorkels, boogie/surf boards, towels, and anything you can think of to make our time in the water more enjoyable. If going outdoors is not your thing, there is a pool and sauna surrounded by a garden full of local jungle vegetation that is sure to take your breath away. After a day of exhilarating yet exhausting adventures on the island, Hale Luana's spacious beds and luxurious living quarters provide the perfect space for weary travelers to unwind. However, we recommend sleeping with the sliding doors open to let the tropical ocean breezes to lull you to sleep. We definitely enjoyed our time at Hale Luana and we believe you will too.

Owner's Response: Thank you! (It's Sunset Point where you see surfers and there's a Jacuzzi set at 101 degrees - not a sauna.) It was a pleasure to meet all of you and I hope to see you again.

Best Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 3 stayed here for 9 nights & we absolutely loved this house! The pictures are accurate--it's a lovely, tropical oasis on the North Shore. The ocean views are magnificent & sometimes, it was hard to leave the house because of how beautiful it and the property are. Luckily, those beautiful North Shore beaches are an easy drive. Three Tables became our favorite beach.

We rented both units because we were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary and wanted privacy. We brought our 8 year old son along and had plenty of space for all 3 of us. He loved the home as well and often wanted to stay there instead of going to other activities. We all enjoyed the pool, which is so nice and refreshing and also provides a few ocean views too.

Everything you need is already at the house to start your trip. How refreshing to rent a vacation property and not have to worry about picking up things like trash bags, paper products, plastic storage bags, spices & oils, etc. Even better was having beach chairs, umbrellas, beach towels, and snorkel gear provided! This was the best furnished beach rental we've ever rented. Check in and check out were a breeze--just show up on your first day, and just leave on the last day (it was hard to leave though !). There was no 2 page "to-do" list of lots of chores before you could check out--very nice.

As so many others have mentioned, Louise is such a nice lady who is incredibly helpful. She gives you complete privacy but will answer questions when you need her. She knows lots about the area as well so she's a great source of information.

The only down side to the house is nothing bad-- just something to consider. There is no air conditioning for the home so the windows stay open all the time for ventalation. This means lots of noises that you might not typically hear at your own home. There are some roosters down the road who started crowing daily between 2:30 & 4:30 a.m. & kept going for some time. We did have some trouble sleeping but ear plugs helped somewhat.

This house was fabulous & it was easy to drive over to Haleiwa or other nearby areas. We loved eating at Ted's Bakery, near Sunset Beach & a very short drive from the house. The Grass Skirt Grill, Waialua Bakery, and Opal Thai were some of our favorite restaurants in Haleiwa! We also enjoyed shave ice in Haleiwa--I think my son tried every place we could find. This house makes staying on the North Shore a truly wonderful vacation!

Beautiful, comfortable well maintained property, will 100% return!

  • 5 of 5
The pictures do not do this place justice! My husband and I stayed here for a week and could not have been happier..we woke up every morning to a spectacular view of a rainbow over the ocean from our bed! The grounds the house sets on were full of colorful flowers and stunning birds. The owner was very accommodating and helpfull with all things local and anything we needed assistance with. The house was also a huge help when it came time for the beach,providing us with chairs and umbrellas etc. We can not wait to return!

Amazing, beautiful, fully equipped property with true Hawaiian charm and feel.

  • 5 of 5
This place had everything you needed and more. Comfortable beds, quality bedding. Fully equipped kitchen, beach/pool amenities, and was very clean and comfortable both in and around the property. Very safe and secure property with lush surroundings and world class views. Louise the caretaker is a wonderful person, very respectful of your privacy and also ensures you have everything you need. We were two couples and while the master bedroom is much larger with king bed the den offered still a very suitable room for another couple (very comfortable queen).

The area offered a 3mile stretch of bike path (perfect for running or taking the bikes for a cruise) of world class beaches and surf breaks. Nearby foodland had everything you need to stock up. While not always wanting to cook on holidays we loved morning coffee and smoothies on the lanai as well made use of the BBQ and fully equipped kitchen.

We will definitely try and make it back to this amazing spot.

Incredible views! Total privacy!

  • 5 of 5
We had such an amazing time at Hale Luana! The property was in perfect condition and the house had everything we needed. We saw whales every day and listened to the waves crashing every night. With Louise's help, we had a yoga instructor and private chef come to the house which made our experience there even more special. We rented both units and found them both to be extremely comfortable. We would definitely come back!!
