BEACHFRONT WALK-OUT - UNOBSTRUCTED VIEW, ON SANDY BEACH- 2 CONDOS NOW -FROM $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.

We just finished some more remodeling. 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.

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

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!! :)

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'!! :)

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.

GREAT VALUE!

  • 5 of 5
This unit is part of the Pat's at Punalu'u condo complex. We were very satisfied with our stay and would recommend this unit to anyone who does not want the hustle and bustle of Honolulu. There is no air conditioning, so if this is a big deal for you, take note. That being said, there are two nice fans and a good breeze which always kept the unit comfortable even in the daytime.

The Good:
- Very clean with a FULLY stocked kitchen. Anything you need for cooking meals is probably there.
- Beds are very comfortable, even the Murphy bed
- Ground floor unit is great for families and the kids can run on the grassy area out front
- Good wifi and cable when you don't want to go out
- Lots of snorkeling gear and a cooler if you need it
- The washer and dryer are very convenient to have in unit
- The owners and greeter at the unit are extremely friendly and are happy to help with anything you might need
- Past guests have compiled a review of island activities and made a binder with maps to help you get around.

The Bad (being picky)
- Not having air conditioning somewhat forces you to keep the windows open, and the highway and hallway outside gets busy at times. Most of the time, not an issue.
- The dumpsters for the complex are somewhat close to the front door. 99% of the time not an issue (and convenient for taking out the trash), but can occasionally get an "off" odor.

The pride of ownership is evident here and everything is very well maintained. We look forward to staying here again if we return to Oahu.

GREAT PROPERTY ON THE EASTERN SHORE OF OAHU

  • 5 of 5
The property had all of the amenities advertised. The owners (Chris & Al) were extremely easy to work with via E-mail. The location is great (about halfway between Honolulu and the North Shore). There were 4 of us; 2 adults and 2 teenagers. This is essentially a one-bedroom unit with a queen size Murphy bed in the living room area. Everyone fit nicely into the unit. It was nice having snorkel gear, beach towels, beach chairs, boogie boards and ice chest at our disposal. The owners have upgraded this unit and they really thought about what a person on vacation would need. The unit was very clean and their agent (Kathy) meet us when we arrived, gave us the keys and showed us where everything was. There is a great beach right outside the sliding glass door about 30 yards away that is pretty good for swimming and snorkeling. We enjoyed staying at a more quiet part of Oahu versus the zoo that is Waikiki. If you are looking for nightlife, this is NOT the condo for you! We enjoyed several of the local eateries especially Giovanni’s Shrimp truck (we went twice)! We headed down into / through the Honolulu area for a few things. (1) Tour of Pearl Harbor (amazing and very moving) and the swap meet held 3 times a week at Aloha stadium (hands down the BEST place for souvenirs). (2) We did a snorkel trip out of the Southwest side of the island with Wild Side tours. Small boat and only 10 passengers! Swam with spinner dolphins and sea turtles! (3) My son & I climbed up Diamond Head. Great views all around! Some of the things that other users complained / commented about were: (1) Garage smell (the garbage gondolas are located relatively near this particular unit). We did not experience any bad odors. (2) “Noise” from the garbage / mail box area (which are right next to the bedroom window). There were signs up to keep your voices down. We did hear some people but never later in the evening / early in the morning. The owners did have a large floor fan in the unit which helped pull through the trade winds and drown out any outside noise. This unit is on the Ground level that may be a security concern to some people. We didn’t experience any problems and this complex does have full time security personnel patrolling throughout the night. We would definitely stay here again & recommend it to any of our family & friends. It also changed my view of Oahu having only experienced the airport & seeing the high rise metropolis of Honolulu. We'll be back!

CAN'T SAY ENOUGH GOOD THINGS

Can't say enough good things
  • 5 of 5
We just got back from staying in this condo. This will have been our 5th trip to Hawaii and this one is the best yet because of this condo and the location. The condo is beautiful, has everything you could possibly need to enjoy your stay and you can't beat the location. Just outside your door is a wonderful beach that is so private - I think on the busiest day there were maybe 14 people on the beach. The condo was very quiet, we had neighbors on both sides and upstairs and really didn't hear them. The windward side of the island is beautiful and easy to get around (except stay away from the North Shore on the weekends). Chris and Al were great to work with, Kathe the housekeeper was also wonderful. The condo comes equipped with beach chairs, beach towels, boogie boards, snorkel gear, everything you need to enjoy time at the beach.The kitchen is well equipped also and a joy to cook in. We highly recommend this condo. We will be coming back.

There is also a pair of binoculars, 2 coolers, a hair dryer, clock radio, iron and ironing board. Our bathroom has a tub & shower for those who like both. 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 & DVD's for all ages. We have also prepared a binder showing nearby grocery stores, churches, restaurants, gear rental info, sightseeing tips, and shopping suggestions. The complex also has a fitness room for those who like to keep in shape while on vacation. There is also a security guard on duty from 8pm-6am Monday thru Friday and all day Saturday & Sunday, for those who like added piece of mind.
