Overview

Punaluu Condo Rental Photos and Description

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.

We are local owners so we will be here to make sure your stay is everything you want and expect it to be. You are always welcome to contact us if needed!

If for some reason we cannot accommodate your schedule, we will do our utmost to help you find a similar vacation rental in the immediate area.

You will love staying at Hale Luana. We guarantee!

Mahalo for viewing our listing!

About Richard and Gayle Roddy

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

Why Richard and Gayle Roddy chose Punaluu

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!

What makes this condo unique

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Very Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent three nights in the rental. Everything we thought we needed was there, including a fresh bar of soap that I forgot to bring with me. Everything was perfect, had the best time ever. The owners were so attentive and willing to help whenever needed. Also the guidebooks put together by the owners were very useful. Me and my husband will be back!

Great experience

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend I had gone to busy Waikiki for the first 5 days of our trip and had decided to find a place to relax and enjoy the quieter side of Hawaii for our last 5 days. This condo was absolutely perfect! The owners are extremely helpful and caring, we had everything we could have ever needed and more. The scenery was stunning and we could wake up to the sound of the waves and a coffee on the balcony overlooking the ocean every morning. The beach was very quiet and anyone that we ran into was very friendly. A car is necessary if you want to get around the area and explore. We couldn't have asked for a better experience, definitely reccomend this place and will likely be going back!

Very nice Condo with a great view

  • 4 of 5
This condo was very comfortable and clean. The owner's attention to detail made our stay very comfortable by providing everything we might possibly need for our stay. A car is a must to stay here, the location of the condo is very convenient for travels to the north shore or travels to the Waikiki area.

We really enjoyed staying here. The unit was very well maintained and fully stocked with everything we needed for our stay. It is out of the busy city, which we loved but, also close enough for us to drive in and do sight seeing. We would stay here again! The beach at the condo was really nice and one you can easily swim at.

Thanks for such a nice place to stay and really feel the Aloha spirit!

5 star experience at 3 star price

  • 5 of 5
No better way to describe our mid-August 2014 experience at Hale Luana as a 5-star experience at a 3-star price. Whether you are a kama’aina, vacationing former kama’aina (that would be us), or a visitor looking for a place to unwind and enjoy the windward side of Oahu, this location should be looked into. We are a family of 4: husband, wife, daughter (20), and son (18)

As a former kama’aina (born & raised in Hawaii), we return to Hawaii every summer. We’ve done the “resort” experiences on Oahu and Maui. We lived in Boulder CO for 17 years and have done Vail/Aspen; we lived in Austin TX for 7 years and have done many of the resorts in TX; we have lived in Orange County for 7 years and have enjoyed many of the resorts in SoCal. Needless to say, we have experienced 2 to 5 star accommodations with 2-5 star pricing delivering 2-5 star experiences.

If you’re looking for a place to enjoy the solitude away from the city (Honolulu or the mainland), a beach which seems like it’s private, and the slower pace of the windward side of Oahu, then you will love Hale Luana. The kitchen is adequately equipped, the appliances are newer, the bathroom has been upgraded, and the unit slept 4 people (2 adults, 2 teenagers) comfortably.

The unit overlooks the ocean and its east-facing orientation means that the sunrise bathes the unit in early morning sun. If you keep the sliding door open, you will hear the ocean all night and will feel the onshore wind moving through the unit. The balcony with its two chairs overlooks the beach. Definitely no complaints.

The owners, Richard & Gayle, are very friendly and accommodating. On our first day, Richard showed up to replace the old TV with a new one, he had texted me that he was coming. Unfortunately, the newer one was too big for the space so he had to return the next day with a new one. That being said, we didn’t watch any TV for the entire 3 days as we were on “vacation” mode!

High points: windward Oahu location, “private” beach, good fishing, uncrowded, surroundings made you slow down, clean & well-equipped unit, caring & attentive owners

Less-than-high points: the bedroom was definitely not a bedroom but more like a nook for the queen bed (some people may not like this set up). There really isn't much high-end dining within 7 miles of Hale Luana but lots of good places if you like "local" food: plate lunch, fish tacos, shrimp trucks, etc.

Relaxing in Paradise

  • 5 of 5
It was the perfect place for our first visit to Hawaii. We were away from hustle and bustle of Waikiki and just enjoyed the island life. You do need a car though. Even though it is the North Shore, it still took us 40 minutes or so to get to the scenic town of Haleiwa.

The condo itself provided everything we needed - fully equipped kitchen, wi-fi, and oceanfront views with the relaxing sound of waves crashing. It was very clean, well-maintained, and 100% as advertised. We liked not having to dine out for every meal and take advantage of all the amenities the condo provided.

Loved waking up every morning to the beautiful sunrise! We loved being so close to the beach, which was very private. Everything about our vacation and the condo was perfect.

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!

***********************************

If you would like more information about the area, things to do, or dining, please contact us. We are here to make your stay unforgettable!
