Overview

Kawela Apartment Rental Photos and Description

One-bedroom Apartment With Large Deck And Patio.

State of Hawaii Transit Accommodation Tax Registration:

W00122118-01

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. The living room faces the ocean, includes a 32-inch flat screen TV, and has a small dining area off to the side. The small but complete kitchen contains all necessary dishes and utensils. The bedroom is located on the mountain side of the house, and the bathroom (with sink, tub and shower) is directly off the bedroom. 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 at certain times. It is normally not heard on the deck or patio.

We require a five night minimum stay.

Memorable place

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I stayed in this unit for 5 nights (though he left earlier than I) and really liked this place. The noise was a downside as warned by the owner but on the weekend it was really quiet. Ann and Richard were very accommodating and I enjoyed talking with them about their experience in my home country when they were younger. It's a fully furnished nice unit with HD TV with cable and WiFi, and makes you feel like you live there. And the ocean view is just stunning!! I enjoyed cooking everyday. I hope more pans and pots would be added by next time we come back. Thank you and take care, Ann & Richard!!

Enjoyed our say

  • 4 of 5
The apartment was very clean and nice. The owner was very helpful and freindly. We spent most of our time driving around the island enjoying the sites and and beaches. There is a beautiful view of the ocean out the back of the apartment which can be enjoyed either setting on the couch inside or the back patio. the only two down sides of this location are (1) there is no beach access from the patio because the shore line is a lava shelf and at the end of the grass is a 6 or 8 ft. rocky cliff and (2) the main road with a ton of traffic is only about 15 feet from the apartment which made it quite noisy. These weren't a big problem because we could walk about 300 feet to a small beach and drive a couple of miles to Sunset Beach where we spent a lot of time watching the surfers. As far as the noise was concerned, after a couple of days, we hardly noticed the noisy traffic. If there was a 4.5 rating I would give rate it at that. We had a great time!

Owner's Response: Most ocean front houses on the north shore of Oahu are located along Kamehameha Highway. At times, traffic can be heavy, as we have stated on the VRBO website. It is the price we pay to live on the water at this wonderful location. However, we are a measured 40 feet from the road, not 15 feet, and a 6-foot high, 18-inch thick lava rock wall is between our house and the highway. And, as these guests discovered, after a couple of days they hardly noticed the traffic.
We do have access to the ocean from our property on an easy rock path. We may have failed to point this out to these guests. Although we would not describe our waterfront as a “ 6 to 8-foot rocky cliff,” and despite the incorrect measurement from the road, we think that otherwise this is a fair appraisal, and thank our guests for taking the time to write it.

We are less than 2 miles from world-famous Sunset Beach, and from the Turtle Bay Resort's fine beaches and two golf courses. A new 1,100 acre state park provides many miles of forested trails for hikers and mountain bikers, less than 4 miles away. The nearby Polynesian Cultural Center and Waimea Valley Cultural Park are first class tourist attractions.
