COZY OCEANFRONT HOME ON SECLUDED BEACH, NORTH OF SUNSET BEACH

Sunset Beach House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps maximum of 4. Groups of no more than four.

Our oceanfront home, Kawela Kai, is located on the North Shore of Oahu in between Sunset Beach and the Turtle Bay Resort. The stretch of beach where we are located is beautifully secluded and uncrowded. The beach is protected by a coral reef.

The house is an air conditioned, cozy, two-bedroom, single-family home with it's own yard. It is furnished with a fully-equipped kitchen and all linens. The house has been upgraded and includes; granite counters, new soft close cabinets and drawers in the kitchen, stainless steel appliances, crown molding throughout, and plantation shutters. There is one queen and two single beds. For your convenience, we offer wireless internet access.

The house has a lovely covered lanai for protection from the sun or if you are a sun lover, there is a nice grassy area between the house and the ocean where you can soak up the sun. During the winter months and early spring, you may have the opportunity to see the humpback whales that migrate from Alaska. If the surf is not too high, you may see the whales breathing and breaching right from the lanai. Other wildlife may be seen from the lanai; such as birds, turtles, rays, Hawaiian monk seals, and the occasional surfer.

There is a washer and dryer available for your use during your stay. As with many oceanfront homes on the North Shore, we are located on the road that goes around the island, so the bedrooms may experience some traffic noise at different times of the day.

The house sits about 18' above the beach. Access to the beach is down steps in the sea wall. Directly in front of the house is a flat rocky/sandstone surface with sandy beach further away to the right and the left of the house. Access to the water directly in front of the house is over a sandstone surface, and a lava/coral shelf.

You may swim, snorkel, and surf in front of the house during the months from late spring through early fall, but because we are on the North Shore, when the surf is up it is not safe for inexperienced swimmers just about anywhere on the North Shore.

During the winter months, the powerful awesome large surf on the North Shore is tremendously exciting to watch. We are located two miles from Sunset Beach, three miles from Pipeline, and five miles from Waimea Bay. These three beaches are world famous for the large surf and surfing competitions. Even if you do not surf, it is exhilarating to watch!

We are located ten miles from historic Haleiwa town which offers a variety of shops and restaurants. We are about a mile from the championship golf courses at the Turtle Bay Resort.

In case you are not familiar with Hawaiian words, the 'w' in Kawela is pronounced as a 'v'.

We are both high school teachers. One of us grew up in Hawaii, the other in San Diego. Our cocker spaniel's name is Lei Lei.

The Owner purchased this house in 2000

We love the North Shore and specifically the part where the house is located because it is away from the crowds. We are a couple of miles from Sunset Beach which is exactly what we wanted. From our house or lanai, if we see four or five people walk by on the beach, that is a very crowded day! We chose this property because it is directly oceanfront. Nothing blocks our view. We like that our house is not connected to any other dwelling and we that we have our own yard.

Our house is much more to us than a piece of real estate. The house is our pride and joy and we are so grateful for it. We love relaxing there while being surrounded by so much beauty. We love watching the turtles come up for air. We are filled with awe as we see the whales breathe, breach, and frolic during winter and spring months. We can see these things happening while sitting on our lanai, sitting at our dining room table, or washing dishes at the kitchen sink. Every meal at the house offers a table with a terrific view. Not many restaurants can compete with our view. Needless to say, we prefer to stay home for meals. Mahalo for taking a look.

My fiance and parents stayed at this relaxing North Shore beach house as a getaway and relaxation before they went back overseas. We had such a great time, it was such a rejuvenation being so close to the water and listening to the waves into the nights. Also the added bonus is seeing the many turtles that pop there heads up out of the water right at the beachfront.
The kitchen was very nice and new, great appliances and a good deck to sit on while having some Pupu's and drinks.
We would highly recommend anyone to stay here for a long weekend or a week, it was just perfect. Oh and the outdoor shower is great too!
Thanks again for letting us stay at your lovely beach home.

Jonny and I had an awesome stay at your house ( 10 days in 2005). We highly recommend it. We both hope to come back one day and sit out on the patio / Lanai and look at the turtles swim by. We had some great sunsets, and perfect weather. Anyone looking for a relaxing get-a-way at a clean and functional house. This is the place to choose. Don´t forget to drive up the road and have some trutti frutti drinks at the Turtle Resort just a few minutes up the Road. Also shrimps at Giovanni´s is a must do ;0)

Borrowed paradise

  • 5 of 5
I found the descriptions and many pictures to be completely accurate, and very helpful. The size was perfect for 2 adults and 2 little kids. The owners are a pleasure to deal with--helpful, organized, responsive.

The house was extremely clean and comfortable. A/C works great, and was a nice luxury.

The backyard lanai and lawn were heavenly...from the sunset, to the stars, the wind in the palm tree, the sound of the waves, and watching the weather and the ocean. Mm, I want to go back NOW!

Great location--ate at Ted's Bakery more times than I care to admit, convenient to Foodland, gorgeous beaches.

I loved walking down to our 'personal' beach daily. Little tiny lagoons for my 3 and 6 year old to wade and play in, and to watch the sea life.

Two considerations and one down side: the living room furniture is not that comfy (but what the heck are you doing sitting on the couch in Hawaii) and the rock steps down to the beach were precarious (but with caution and a hand to hold my kids managed it no problem). The only downside for me was the full bed was pretty soft and convex, so it felt like I would roll off the side. Did I still sleep though? Yep.

We hope to come back, and would recommend it to any of our friends.

Truly a "Home away from Home"

Truly a "Home away from Home"
  • 4 of 5
I GOT TO PET A SEA TURTLE IN THE WILD!! -but more about that in a bit

The pictures you see are exactly what we found when entering the property. The home was spotless and everything we needed was present from linens to cookware. The triangle on the fence can not be missed to locate the property (thank you ladies for that). My daughter loved the outdoor shower as did I for rinsing off before going into the house. There was a manual to explain the TV/Stereo/DVD units, but of course I still required some direction. I sent a message and received a reply within an hour. The sunsets every night here are something you might see in a movie-SPECTACULAR!

We loved that we were so close to so many beaches right down the road, the nearest one was certainly within 10 minute walking distance, and then every mile or so another, then another, etc.,but we had no problem parking, there was always a space available.

We spent most days at the beaches just west of the house. While just floating on a raft with a mask looking over a reef, you see so many beautiful creatures. A Sea Turtle came right up to me!!! I followed him for a short time and it was as if we were buddies swimming together. He came right in front of me and let me pet him, it was a perfect ending to my last day.

Honolulu is an hour south and there are only 2 ways to get there, I recommend taking the highway if you want to save time. We spent 2 days away from the house out of the 7 sightseeing down south. If you plan on visiting the Arizona Memorial, you'll need to get tickets far in advance. The Polynesian Village is within a few miles as is a zip line company if you are interested. You can rent beach equipment right across of Shark's Cove Beach and there is also a great little Mermaid Beach Shop as well - very reasonable.

We enjoyed the fireworks for 4th of July at Turtle Beach Resort only a couple of miles up the road where if you want to golf, there are packages to do so. Also there was a local market and a few street vendors for all of our fresh grocery needs. I was surprised (delighted) to find that there was not such a huge mark-up at the local grocery store, everything was very reasonable.

We vacation every year and only use VRBO rentals. I looked at many homes while researching and even drove past a few while there to see what I might have missed out on. I rate this home as LOOK NO FURTHER - THIS IS THE ONE!!!

A great house for a relaxing stay on the North Shore

  • 5 of 5
Plenty of room for a family of four. Everything worked great and was as advertised. The view over the ocean from the front of the house meant a great sunset view from the porch every night.
The beach in front is rocky and not worth swimming, mostly because there are nice sandy beaches so close. But we saw sea turtles swimming pretty much all day every day. Sunset beach is just two miles away, and the beach next to Turtle Bay is just a mile or so north. Dozens of other amazing beaches line the coast in either direction. Being there in the summer meant that we could swim and snorkel in any of them.
Keep in mind that this area is kind of the opposite of Waikiki: quiet and remote. Most restaurants are “food trucks” or shacks. Yummy, though. The town of Haleiwa is where you can go for some restaurants and most activities (surfing lessons, kayaking, ocean excursions, etc.). The shrimp shack restaurants in Kahuku are another option, especially if you like shrimp. We hit some places in Laie too.
As others have noted there is some noise from the traffic passing by on the road, and you will see tiny lizards in the house occasionally. That didn’t bother us. That’s just part of living on the North Shore.
We recommend this house to anyone looking to stay in this area.

Beachfront Paradise

  • 5 of 5
I recently attended a wedding on the north shore with 3 friends. We were all thoroughly impressed when we arrived at this property. Great location, close to shopping, grocery store and great snorkel and paddle boarding beaches. The house was clean and comfortable. The air conditioning was a HUGE bonus during the humid days. Definitely a fantastic rental. Plenty of room for four people and the view was incredible. Would recommend this little slice of paradise to anyone!
