About the property

Tutu's Place is a Beautiful 3 BR/3 BA Oceanfront Home!

Tutu's Place is a beautiful, private, beachfront home on a huge, white, sandy beach. See world class surfing right outside your door!

'Tutu's Place' is located beachfront on Oahu's famous North Shore. This hide-away is located about halfway between Waimea Bay and the World Famous Bonzai Pipeline. Tired of crowded beaches? Ours is often deserted.

This is no resort, just a beautiful and clean home for you to enjoy the hidden Hawaii. The house is the only structure on the large property and you will be its only residents. You will not be sharing your beachfront vacation with any other guests, residents, or property manager.

Your house is located literally steps (about 6) from the beach on a large lot at the end of a quiet street. This recently (10/05) renovated property has no neighbors on one side and a quiet neighbor on the other side a comfortable distance away. You'll never feel crowded at this special home.

Spectacular surfing, windsurfing, kite boarding, kayaking, fishing, snorkeling in the summer, awesome humpback whale watching in the winter, or just playing on the huge beach is right out your front door!

Tutu's Place has a large attached covered lanai (deck) overlooking the beach, 3 full size bedrooms, 1 full bath with shower, Master bath with shower and tub, and a 3rd full bath with shower serving the downstairs BBQ area. This special home has a large living room with hardwood floors and an open beam redwood ceiling which opens to the lanai, dining area, and full kitchen. The Master bedroom has a King size bed, the Queen bedroom has a Queen-sized bed, and the Twin room has two twin beds that can be pushed together, if desired.

Amenities include cable TV, VCR/DVD player, stereo, queen size sofa bed, comfortable living room furniture, and phones with free local calls.

The full kitchen includes a large fridge, a full size gas stove with oven, microwave, coffee maker, rice cooker, blender, toaster, all pots and pans, Tupperware, glassware, china, flatware, serving dishes, cooking utensils, paper goods, and kitchen linens.

The large upstairs lanai has comfortable outdoor furnishings and spectacular sunsets almost every night.

The large grassy picnic and BBQ area (which overlooks the beach and is covered by the upstairs lanai) has both gas and charcoal grills, a large wooden picnic table, chaise lounges, outdoor chairs, and an outdoor shower with hot and cold water to keep the sand where it belongs! There is also a full bath with indoor shower and large laundry room with washer and dryer that serve this downstairs area.

The property has a two car carport, and a large manicured grassy yard.

Activities include world class surfing, swimming, whale watching, hiking along the coast and in the mountains to one of the most spectacular and accessible waterfalls on the island, kite surfing, windsurfing, kayaking, fishing, horseshoes, volleyball, & being a beach bum!

There is also a manicured bike path which runs right past the house and takes you anywhere along the entire length of the North Shore. For the snorkeling or diving enthusiast, there is an excellent underwater marine preserve with lots of fish, turtles, and other marine life less than a 10 minute walk down the bike path or the road. Tutu's Place is located about 5 miles east of Haleiwa Town on Oahu's North Shore. This area is called the 'Gold Coast' of the North Shore due to its proximity to the best surfing beaches on Oahu.

Everything I dreamed it would be, happened.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful location, loved the beach front, (almost to ourselves). Balcony was a beautiful place to watch the sunset, eat breakfast & BBQ dinner. Home was equipped with the necessary items to cook and fix our meals. Washer & dryer were also a wonderful plus. Grocery store & food trucks were a block away. Beach chairs, towels, umbrellas and snorkeling gear, were available for us to use. Outside shower + shower under the house was a must and a plus to remove the sand from your fun on the beach. We loved our stay and will cherish the memories forever.

Typical Shore House

  • 3 of 5

This was a nice simple home. Nothing spectacular just a basic house with no bells and whistles or toilet paper. You have to supply your own TP which I was pretty surprised about. Great Location with no amenities.

We loved our stay and cannot wait to come back again, Wendy was very friendly and helpful. The house has everything you need for a beach holiday. The view from the balcony is perfect for watching the waves roll in & a quick walk to pipeline

I hope to do it again

  • 5 of 5

The property was as described or better. We were 5 people, ages 1 to 65 and were comfortable. Lots of room, inside and out. Comfortable beds, good water pressure, we felt at home within minutes.

There are lots stairs to enter the house, which may deter those with knee troubles, Etc. There is Traffic noise in 2 of he bedrooms- unavoidable on the north shore, while the largest room has the awesome ocean waves sound and view. Owners are responsive.

amazing location

  • 4 of 5

Rustic beach house , beautiful location with great porch. Can hear the surf in the house which had everything my two daughters and I needed. We have simple needs, the house is not modern, has no air conditioning, and not meticulously kept up. But it was clean and comfortable right near some fantastic food trucks and a nice grocery store. We would definitely stay there again.

30 Miles
Car: recommended

Golf: In Haleiwa you will find a great mix of eclectic art galleries, surf shops, and a wide range of excellent restaurants.

The house is also located about a 10 minute walk along the beach or shady bike path from the famous 'Bonsai Pipeline'. We are also a comfortable walking distance down the bike path from the North Shore's largest grocery store, Starbucks coffee shop, and the North Shore farmers market held every weekend. At the farmers market you will find an excellent selection of locally grown produce, foods, and crafts.

The North Shore is relatively quiet and undeveloped by commercial activities.

Ski: Very different from the rest of Oahu and yet only 60 minutes from the thrills of Waikiki Beach for those 'city getaway' days!
