OCEANFRONT VACATION UNIT ON OAHU'S FAMOUS NORTH SHORE

Kawela Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

State of Hawaii Transit Accommodation Registration: W00122118-01.

Recommended by and listed in Lonely Planet Guides: Hawaii - 6th edition, April, 2003

Oahu - 1st edition, March 2000

Our house is located on the north shore of Oahu, less than two miles west of Sunset Beach, the world famous surfing beach, and about one and a half miles west of Backyards (Velzyland), which is an equally well-known windsurfing site. A lesser known and uncrowded surfing area is offshore from our property. We are directly on the ocean, with year-round sunsets, and whales passing by during the winter months. The house sits on a flat, rocky reef, with sandy beaches a very short walking distance to the left and to the right. An offshore reef protects us from the pounding waves, and provides safe swimming and snorkeling. Honolulu is a one-hour drive away, but we are also directly on the bus line.

The vacation unit is in a separate wing of the main house and has its own private entrance. It shares a large deck and a large patio, both overlooking the water, with tables, lounge chairs, and a small charcoal barbecue. It is an upstairs-downstairs arrangement, with a large, airy bedroom upstairs, and a small sitting room and bath (combined tub and shower) below. Both rooms have ocean views.

An inclined ladder-staircase leads to the bedroom (please see photo), which contains a king-size bed, a chest of drawers, and hang-up space.

The downstairs sitting room contains a couch and a TV (cable/44 channels). There is NO KITCHEN OR STOVE, but the downstairs room has a small refrigerator, a microwave, single burner hot plate, coffee maker, toaster, and small, fold-away TV tables. There are also dishes and utensils, adequate for light cooking, using the bathroom sink for cleanup. We also have a washing machine and dryer available for guest use. As with many other ocean front homes on the North Shore, we are located on the around-island highway, so there is some vehicle noise in the bedroom at certain times. It is not heard in the sitting room or on the deck. Because of the possible hazard with the inclined staircase and the steep deck stairs (see photos), we cannot accept small children.

We require a five night minimum stay.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Thank you for being such wonderful hosts. We especially appreciated the use of your guide book, which we would have been lost without. We had such a wonderful time! We will definitely recommend you to anyone looking for a place to stay on Oahu.

GREAT LOCATION FOR ANYTHING O'AHU

Great Location For Anything O'ahu
  • 5 of 5
I recently stayed for two full weeks at this location and I have to say, everything about it was perfect! The location was close to many attractions such as Turtle Bay, Polynesian Culture Center, Pipeline Beach and the historic town of Haliewa. There is surfing, snorkeling, and any other water sports you wish nearby or a short drive away, or even just a beautiful sunset from the deck. A little farther gets you to Dillingham Airfield for adventure seekers interested in glider flights or skydiving. Great hiking trails and immediate access to the shore highway if you just want to drive the North or East coasts.

Ann and Richard could not have been more gracious hosts and I greatly appreciate the opportunity to stay here. They were always happy to answer questions and even make suggestions on things to do in the area. Richard is still an avid hiker and has amazing recommendations. I wasn't always around, even away sometimes for over a day at a time, but Ann always found me when I was there to ask if I needed anything.

I will definitely stay here again. For those interested in more space, they have a larger unit attached to the home as well.

EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT STAY!!!

  • 5 of 5
Just wanted to send a big THANK YOU!!! to Ann and Richard. I had a wonderful 10 day stay at this property. You can't ask for such a better property/location where the water is your backyard. Away from the hustle and bustle of the town and only a few miles to some of the greatest beach spots. My main goal was to come and have a relaxed time reconnecting with the island and this was perfect for that. Ann was very helpful with tips of local events and spots to visit. I got to meet Richard the day I was leaving. Such a warm couple who definitely spread the aloha! I caught the Pipeline competition and as expected road and beach traffic were expected, but this location is a few miles away from there and not as busy. I highly recommend this place to anyone whether you just want to get away and chill, or going to be sight seeing all day and need a place to rest your head. Thanks again Ann and Richard. I had a wonderful time and will see you again this year. Mahalo!!!

REVIEW FOR VRBO PROPERTY 43703

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent a week here and we really loved it. We especially loved the peacefulness and beauty of the North Shore compared to the hassle and crowding around Honolulu, and always looked forward to coming "home" at the end of every adventuresome day. The hosts are wonderful and were helpful in every way. They even loaned us a great hiking book that made it possible for us to explore some of the amazing peaks and waterfalls of Oahu. The housing was pretty much as pictured in the photos. The only two things we were a little disappointed with were that the highway going past the house seemed to have traffic going all night long, which was a little disruptive to sleep, and also that the large bed in the upstairs loft seemed to be higher on one side than the other by at least an inch or so. Otherwise, everything was wonderful and we would definitely stay there again. And as soon as possible!

WONDERFUL STAY!

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I stayed here for 8 nights last week (July 2011), and we had a wonderful time. The view from the unit is amazing, I couldn't have asked for a better ocean view. We loved listening to the sound of the waves; although the traffic noise from the bedroom occasionally drowned it out (and sometimes disturbed my sleep). Ann and her husband were lovely hosts. We did have a problem with bugs (earwigs I believe?) the second night of our stay in the bedroom. We let Ann know and she immediately took care of the problem. The unit was a bit small but perfect for my husband and I for that length of stay. We didn't spend too much time in the unit since there are so many beautiful beaches nearby. Overall I would be happy to stay again.

Ann,
It's Kelley's sister Dio. Hi! Haven't seen you since the UNFORGETABLE time you saved our precious Labrador from her wandering on the highway, after being stolen from us by a neighbor. That was about 1984? My little girl, who was 5 then is twenty eight now, lives in Washington and is coming to Turtle Bay for her wedding in Aug. Thought I could rent your place with my 9 yr. old granddaughter around Aug. 6th to Aug. 13 I think. How are you? And family?

I stayed here in December 06. I loved it! Waking up every day of my vacation to the sound of the ocean was just incredible. People give me shocked looks when I tell them I stayed there for $75 a night and show them the pictures. Unit is just as advertised, small and cozy. It was near enough to the action of the North Shore, yet not so close that it was noisy (since the Rip Curl Pro was taking place that week) Ann and Richard were wonderful hosts. I can't wait to go back!
