The newly remodeled vacation condo (Spring 2013) ‘Hale Luana' (pronounced ha-lay loo-ah-nah) is located in Punalu'u on Oahu's North Shore. In Hawaiian, it means 'house of leisure, to enjoy pleasant surroundings, to enjoy oneself, relax, and be content'. This is not Waikiki!
This bright, open and airy fully furnished and equipped beachfront condo will provide you with comfort and convenience during your Hawaiian Holiday.
The fully appointed kitchen has new stainless steel appliances, beautiful cherry wood cabinets and granite counter tops. It is fully equipped...and we mean FULLY!
All you need is your food! The unit also has a new washer/dryer for your convenience.
The newly remodeled full bathroom has a shower/tub combination accented with a Hawaiian touch to give you the feeling of the tropics.
The sleeping area has a queen size bed with new linens and privacy screen and is separate from the kitchen and living area.
Additionally, there is a new queen size sofa/sleeper in the living area with a memory foam mattress (very comfortable), as well as HD Cable TV with Music Channels and DVD/CD player. There are some DVDs, CDs, books, magazines, board games, and binoculars for whale watching.
Snorkeling gear, beach chairs, beach toys, boogie boards and BBQ/picnic supplies are also provided.
And if you must stay connected to the outside world, free WiFi is provided.
Enjoy spectacular sunrises and 180 degree ocean views from the lanai, which also overlooks the park-like grounds and sparkling swimming pool. The lanai is the perfect place to start your day with a fresh cup of Kona Coffee or Herbal Tea enjoying the sunrise and gentle ocean breezes. You might even catch a glimpse of the occasional sea turtle, Hawaiian Monk Seal, or whale greeting the day.
Clear evenings bring the glistening moon light over the water.
Hale Luana is located in the legendary 'Pat's at Punalu'u', reminiscent of the earlier days of Hawaii Five-0. This is the “other side of the island…the “real Hawai’i”. The garden-like grounds and expansive grassy areas are spotted with shady palm trees and fragrant plumeria trees. Picnic tables and lounge chairs are provided for your relaxation.
The pool area has chairs and umbrellas. The property also has a small, but modern beachfront fitness room. There is a BBQ area for your use, as well. The complex features 24/7 security, 2 elevators, and free designated parking.
Pat's at Punalu'u Condominium is a totally Smoke Free Complex, but does have designated smoking areas away from the main building.

Mahalo for viewing our listing!
Hale Luana is owned and managed by Richard and Gayle Roddy of Honolulu, Hawaii. Starting off in Hawaii 40 years ago, we then lived all over, from the snowy Rocky Mountains in Colorado, to the Big Sky country of Montana, to the Sonora Desert of Southwest Arizona. Hawaii is just one of those places that never leaves your heart so we came back, and now we enjoy four generations of our family all in one place. Here in Hawaii we have the 'Spirit of Aloha', meaning we care, give and share with joy. We enjoy Hale Luana for our own occasional personal use, but really want to share it with others so you, too, may have an unforgettable Hawaii experience!
Richard and Gayle Roddy purchased this condo in 2012
It's not Waikiki... it's the OTHER side of the island!
We kind of know every corner of the island of Oahu. When most people visit, all they see of Hawaii are the tourist destinations and crowded Waikiki. Just like rural Maui, Kauai or the Big Island, Oahu has so many wonderful, hidden gems, destinations and activities in the area of the North Shore. It's no surprise that Oahu is by far, our favorite island and the beach at Hale Luana is our favorite beach!
Hale Luana is an 'out of the way getaway'. One step onto the lanai looking at that ocean and we were hooked! Everyone is friendly, and there are visitors from all over the world. Our smallest grand-kids love the beach because the waves are gentle and the sand is smooth. Our teenage grand-kids love the snorkeling, kayaking, swimming and exploring. Everyone loves fishing with grandpa and BBQ-ing in the evening. And it's perfect for alone time or couple's time. Remember, it's not Waikiki... this is the real island paradise!
Richard. ...we had a blast in Hawaii. Your condo was great! Thank you for letting us stay. Everything was just awesome.
My husband and I stayed 3 nights at this condo after spending some time in Waikiki. The condo is fantastic! It has everything you need and all the extra stuff you want, including beach chairs, body boards, snorkel gear, spices, condiments....the list goes on and on. The owners were great and welcomed us with a phone call when we arrived. They are very organized, which I thought was wonderful. The complex itself was nice. It's very quiet and relaxing. The beach was wonderful. We would definitely recommend this to pretty much everybody.
We stayed for three nights before going to Waikiki for rest of the week and wished we had stayed all week. Great location. Great stretch of beach. Good snorkeling. Yes the road in front of building is noisy but if you sleep on beach side all you hear is ocean. Owners very nice. We forgot our toiletry bag and he went and got it for us and brought it to us when we were sightseeing at pearl harbor. Would definitely recommend.
We had so much fun at this condo the owners worked with is on everything and we loved that we were away from the busy life of downtown the room was clean and beach was wonderfull if we are to come back we will stay here again !
We loved this little spot in paradise. Very clean, quiet building ( a bit of road noise but not bad). The suite it's very cozy and suitable for our two small children who vacationed with us. The beach was also fantastic. We would definately stay here again! All sorts of beach supplies and equipment as well as everything you could need for equipment in the kitchen. The view was also fantastic! We loved watching the whales off the balcony. While it took about 40 minutes to get to Honolulu we felt this distance was worth it to enjoy a peaceful part of the island rather than the hustle and bustle of the city, which is still easily accessible. We also enjoyed that the suite was close to the Polynesian cultural Center so it wasn't a far drive after the show.
We loved our stay here. The condo is very well appointed for a vacation, we had everything we needed for our two young children as well. The condo is very clean and well maintained, the view is fantastic and the beach/ ocean were great! We weren't worried about our 2 year olds safety playing in the water at all. Close to a lot of amenities. We loved it and hope to return someday.
We had a wonderful time at this beautiful condo on the beach! I would have given it 5 stars except that the building itself is a little old and tired looking. However, once you walk into this unit all that is forgotten. The kitchen and bathroom are newly renovated and very clean, the view from the lanai is gorgeous! The beach is beautiful! The days we were there many of the beaches were closed due to extremely high waves, but this beach has a natural reef and the water was calm enough for snorkeling. The snorkeling was excellent with lots of colourful fish and sea turtles. On our last morning we saw wales breaching just beyond the reef. Although we never met the owners in person we felt that they did their best to ensure that we had a great time while we were there. There were tea, coffee and chocolates for us, and when I asked about a kettle they delivered one to the door for me the very next morning. The location was excellent! A short drive to lots of beautiful places along the windward coast and the Noth Shore. I would definitely recommend this condo to freinds and family! Loved it!
Hale Luana vacation condo is located in Punalu’u of Oahu's North Shore, a quiet, family-friendly area of the island about an hour away from the noise and tourist bustle of Waikiki. About a 45 minute drive from Honolulu International Airport, this vacation rental is perfect for anyone looking for the “real” Hawaii experience!
Close by, there are quaint shops and fresh food stands (including the local Kahuku shrimp trucks… you MUST try this shrimp), and just a 20 min. drive away is the famous North Shore surf town of Hale’iwa, which boasts some of the best dining, shopping, art galleries and activities on the island.
Oahu’s North Shore has something for everyone... from families with small - or big - children, adventurers and thrill-seekers, those simply in need of some R&R, or couples celebrating a romantic event like a honeymoon or anniversary. The North Shore is world-renowned for its surfing and hosts the Triple Crown, the world’s top surfing competition in November and December at Sunset Beach and Banzai Pipeline, just 15 min. away. There is fantastic snorkeling, hiking, horseback riding, fishing, shark cage diving, wind and kite surfing, and all kinds of other activities to enjoy. An easy and worthwhile hike to Waiamea Falls (there is an admission fee per person) is a 15 min. drive away. At Laniakea Beach, a you can usually catch a view of sea turtles. Just a 5 min. drive away from the unit is the Polynesian Cultural Center for a day of exhibits, demonstrations, and fun learning about the cultures of Polynesia, as well as an award-winning luau and shows. And for the golf enthusiasts, the world famous Palmer and Fazio golf courses at Turtle Bay, just 20 minutes away.
Although a rental car is strongly recommended for this location, there are several little grocery and sundries shops within a 5 min. walk and the property is located on the bus line. The condo is equipped with a beautiful 65 page visitors’ directory of things to do and places to go to help you plan your ultimate Hawaiian experience. Of course, steps from the unit is miles of white sand beach for snorkeling, swimming, fishing, kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, and exploring.
An hour away, in the city of Honolulu, Waikiki has beaches and streets lined with high-end resorts, restaurants, shopping and dining. Don't forget to stop and get your picture with the Duke Kahanamoku statue. His arms are draped with flower leis and there is a webcam focused on him so you can wave to your friends in real time. Pearl Harbor is a popular sightseeing destination, and the Arizona Memorial is a worthwhile visit, 45 min. away.
If you choose to stay 'close to home', Punalu'u, Hale'iwa and the entire North Shore have more than enough to satisfy and entertain. The closest (large chain) grocery store is a 5 min. drive away. The closest dine-in restaurant (price $$) is the historic Crouching Lion, with seashell decor and amazing ocean views. The closest shave ice... right across the street!
