BEACHFRONT WALK-OUT - UNOBSTRUCTED VIEW, ON QUIET SANDY BEACH- REMODELED- $125+

Punaluu Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 Bdrm(Kg) + Qn Murphy Bed, 1 Bath w/tub&shwr, Free WiFi, Parking, & Beach Gear

'Our Piece Of Paradise' is an OCEANFRONT, GROUND FLOOR WALK-OUT with an unobstructed view of a beautiful, quiet, sandy beach that is only 30 steps away. Our beach is reef protected, meaning the waves break offshore. So the waves coming in to the beach are calm. Making our part of the ocean good for swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, paddleboarding, sailing, and fishing. It's especially good for small children.

New, we have 2 condos now!! If this one is booked, look at listing #3777905, we just bought it so it might be open. We did some more remodeling on this one, too. We took down the popcorn ceiling and replaced it with a nice flower petal design. That along with the new tile floor we put in the bedroom, are some of the minor updates we've put in that don't show up on the pictures. We want you to enjoy our vacation home, and come to love it as we do. Our goal is to have you walk in, take one look at the gorgeous ocean view, feel the Trade Winds blowing through, listen to the waves... and immediately relax & let all your stress start melting away. Close your eyes and imagine it now.... doesn't it sound wonderful?

We enjoy beautiful sunrises in the morning and moon rises at night. We have seen big Sea Turtles sleeping on the beach in the morning, and Whales spouting and breaching on the ocean(from November to April). We like to sit on the patio and watch the waves break on the reef, sometimes we even sleep on the Murphy bed in the living room just so the waves can lull us to sleep. Then, if we leave the curtains open a little, we can wake up to a gorgeous sunrise streaming in through the lanai window. It is truly our idea of Paradise! Hopefully, it will become yours, too!

Many people have told us we have the best location in the building because of our unobstructed ocean view, along with the convenience of being able to just walk right out to the beach. Which you will have practically all to yourself, because there is no public beach access. The pool area is also just for residents, you need a key FOB to enter (which helps to make it safer for kids).

You'll be happy to know there is no lock box to mess with. We are one of the few owners who employ an agent to welcome our guests personally. She will show you where everything is, how to use it, and be your on-island contact person while you are here to help with any questions you may have.

You will have ''No Worries'' as the locals say...only to decide if you are going to spend the day on the beautiful beach outside your lanai or go for a scenic drive along the coast to do some sightseeing.

We have a true 1-bedroom (not the small sleeping alcove some call a bedroom). We also have lots of dresser, closet, and cabinet space, so you will be able to empty your suitcases and make yourself at home. We know some of you like to fall asleep listening to the TV, so we have one in the bedroom and one in the living room. We have tried to stock our vacation home with all the things we enjoy when we are traveling. In fact, we've just added some things from reading our guests comments about some things they thought would be nice to have, that we didn't think of before.

One of my favorite things is the Murphy Bed. You will have the choice to sleep in the bedroom on the king size Sealy Plush bed, or in the front room listening to the waves and waking up to see the Sunrise from the queen size Serta Euro-Top Murphy Bed. When we remodeled, we purchased new SS appliances, cabinets, counter tops, rattan furniture, linens, dishes & silverware, cookware, beach towels & mats, beach chairs, snorkel gear, boogie boards, 2 coolers, 2 lounging chairs, binoculars, and much more.

There is almost always a nice breeze blowing thru the condo due to the trade winds, but for those who like a fan...we have 2 ceiling fans with remotes and a pedestal fan. We have a big assortment of books & DVDs for all ages. We have also prepared a binder showing nearby grocery stores, churches, restaurants, and doctor; along with sightseeing tips, coupon books, and shopping suggestions.

We purchased ''Our Piece Of Paradise'' in 2011 and spent 2 months remodeling it. The kitchen was the most time consuming, but it was worth it because it was a labor of love. We've hired the best cleaning person in the building so our guests can be assured the condo will be freshly cleaned and ready for you to enjoy. For those of you who like some added piece of mind, there is a security guard on duty from 8pm-6am Monday thru Friday and all day on Saturday and Sunday.

About Chris and Al Livingston

Al asked me one day what my favorite place of all was to go on vacation. I didn't hesitate for a minute, I said 'if I could afford it, I would go to Hawaii every year'. So he surprised me with a trip for my birthday. He had never been there before and he came to love it as much as I did. We had been engaged for over 3 years and just didn't have time to plan a wedding, or know where to do it since our families where spread out across the country. So one morning, not to long before we were supposed to go home, he surprised me with a trip to get a marriage license... and we were married at 'Sunset on the Beach' two days later! Needless to say....I have come to LOVE his surprises!! ;)

Chris and Al Livingston purchased this condo in 2011

Why Chris and Al Livingston chose Punaluu

Since then, it was always a dream of ours to own our own 'Piece Of Paradise'. But we wanted to be away from all the traffic and congestion of Honolulu.Our favorite part of the island was the North Shore area, so we started looking there. We fell in love with this condo is soon as we walked in and looked thru it...to see the ocean right out the lanai! We also thought it was a sign that it should be ours because the condo's number is the date we got married!! :)

What makes this condo unique

We would love to share 'Our Piece Of Paradise' with you, so you can have the same wonderful experience in Paradise that we do. We especially love it when we have couples stay who are getting married or honeymooning on the island...it brings back some great memories! But we also really enjoy making any occasion you have...even more special!! Just like one of our favorite sayings, 'What happens in Hawaii... stays with you forever'!! :)

Coming Back Soon!!!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for two weeks in June of 2014 at Pat's at Punaluu and had the best time. We hope to be coming back very soon! Punaluu offers the lush beauty and rural feel of Kauai, while still giving you access to Oahu's great landmarks! A must stay for anyone who wants to stay on Oahu, but doesn't want to stay in the crowded area of Waikiki or dry area of KoOlina.
This unit is a large size 1 bedroom unit that is brilliantly furnished and decorated providing plenty of room for my family of 5 (three kids, ages 17, ,15, & 9). The unit includes a king size bed in the room, a Murphy Bed (Queen Size) in the living room, and two additional futons stored under the Master Bed (King Size), which fit nicely in the living room, without disrupting any of the dining, or couch areas.
Punaluu is located on the prettiest side (North East) of the Island. The drive to the place from Honolulu is only 45 minutes. If you miss this drive, you missed Hawaii. Many of the sites along the way, are straight out of the movies and are some of the best Hawaii has to offer. The unit we stayed in was a first floor walk out to the beach, which made it easy to BBQ, refill your Mai Tai's or retrieve any thing you need for a fun day at the beach (just steps from the condo). Wow! Nice Beach with very calm conditions, making it a great swimming beach for kids! Unlike other places further up the North Shore, this place is more centrally located, making the Windward Side of the Island, the North Shore, and Waikiki accessible within a 30-45 minutes drive. The Windward Side offers the Sandbar at Kaneohe Bay (a great sailing / snorkeling excursion), world famous Kailua and Lanikai Beaches, as well as plenty of farmers markets to retrieve island grown produce, banana breads, and other island treats at a discount from local grocery stores. The North Shore drive offerred world famous surfing beaches, a great snorkeling destination (i.e., Sharks Cove), and plenty of Shrimp Trucks and Plate Lunch offerings (Local Food). What would a trip to Oahu be without a day in Waikiki? There is a reason why Waikiki is so crowded? Its awesome and everyone knows it. Still, it was nice to be able to retreat back to my rural Punaluu condo after an exciting day surfing in Waikiki.
Coming Back Soon! Definately!

This unit was truly paradise!!! So clean, spacious, and well-appointed! The owners are terrific and thought of everything, start to finish.

When we arrived on the island, we immediately received a message from our greeter/housekeeper to ensure that we knew exactly where to go and she met us onsite when we reached the complex. She gave us a quick orientation of the place (e.g., how to use washer/dryer, where supplies were located, etc.) and even some recommendations of local attractions. We were immediately impressed by the great customer service, THE AMAZING VIEW, and how clean and well appointed the unit is.

From this unit, you literally walk out the sliding glass door across a beautiful green lawn onto the sand. The beach is very calm and ideal for kayaking, floating around on inflatables (we did!). If you want to experience larger surf, it's just a 5-25 minute drive north or south, depending on where you want to go.

This is a one bedroom, one bath unit, but with excellent use of space leaving a "roomy" feel. The master bedroom has a king bed and the living area has a queen Murphy bed (folds out of wall cabinet). Both were super comfortable, with good quality mattresses. The kitchen is newly remodeled and includes everything we needed. The unit was nicely decorated, too.

This complex is away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki, but you can still easily make visits there and then come back to the condo for REAL relaxation.

The unit had everything we needed...washer/dryer, boogie-boards, snorkel gear, ice chest, BBQ equipment, plenty of linens, dishes and cooking utensils of good quality, etc.

We had the pleasure of meeting the owners during our visit and it was easy to see why the unit was so wonderful...the owners are, too. Thanks again to Chris and Al for renting their piece of paradise to us and making this one of our best vacations ever!

A very clean, comfortable place to relax

  • 5 of 5
We stayed a week early July in 2014. My daughter had a Judo tournament at Honolulu, but I didn't want to stay in the city. What a great decision it was for us! There were 5 of us - 3 grown-ups and 2 girls. We had no problem sleeping because of the murphy bed, and those futons in the condo.
This place had Everything!! from ingredients in the kitchen to snorkeling gear and water activity stuff.
I loved her energy efficient washer & dryer. Chris is so organized, and she is very prompt to my emails prior arriving here. She was very patient with me. I would come back here at a heart beat!

Owner's Response: Aloha Silver,
Thank you for all your nice comments. I have to admit that I was worried when you were making your trips to Honolulu, that you would be sorry you didn't just stay there. It actually made me feel good when you said "I decided I don't like Honolulu", then I didn't worry about that anymore!! ;) We would LOVE to have you come back and be our guests again In the meantime, good luck with the girl's judo competitions.
Take care & Mahalo, Chris & Al

A Perfect Piece of Paradise!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed in OPOP with our 3 year old son in May 2013. It truly was paradise! The location was ideal for our low-key getaway. After spending a week in Waikiki, we were ready for less touristy, busy city environment and more quiet beaches and local digs. Punulu'u was a great location.

This listing was very accurate and the property was great. It was clean and well-maintained for the age of the development, and the only thing I wish we could change was the location of the trash bins. The mess from that location and the occasional smell if people left the doors open was a minor nuisance, but security was pretty quick to close down the trash bins.

The on-site manager was a great resource for us. We took our time touring the island on our way over and he was very flexible with our arrival time. He gave us an efficient walk through and was available for our very early morning departure with no issue.

We enjoyed walking down the highway to the local market and getting ice creams. We toured the Polynesian Cultural Center that is not too far away, and headed down to Kailua a few times. The location was truly ideal.

I've recommended this property to several friends and will definitely continue to do so in the future.

Clean, Comfortable, on Quiet Beach

  • 5 of 5
Cleanliness is a must for me and this place passed with flying colors. It was comfortable and even provided the extra little things that make you feel at home. I was pleased to find beach chairs, beach towells and snorkeling gear and even a cooler which we used to pack picnic lunches. Having a washer and dryer available meant we didn't need to pack so many clothes. The condo is on the ground floor so it is a very short walk straight out to the beach. Snorkeling was fun and we even saw some big sea turtles. I prefer staying away from the hustle and bustle of the big City and here it was quiet and the beach was not crowded. It was only a 35-45 minute "beautiful" drive to the city and Pearl Harbor. Exploring the north shore provides many breathtaking views of both the ocean and the mountains. There are grocery and drugs stores within a few miles of the condo to provide for your needs. I would definately recommend this place for my family and friends and will likely stay there again if we get to go back.
