This is the largest apartment in this beachfront condo complex. You can't get any closer to a great sandy beach than this property, anywhere in Hawaii, and you won't find a safer, uncrowded beach. Swim, snorkel, boogie board wind surf, SUP, kayak, and fish from the shore or dive for fish from this incredible beach.

Located in a lush, tropical, setting just 10 miles from Oahu's famous north shore and world class surfing events. Two master suites with king-size, temperpedic beds offer a perfect night's sleep.
The property was comfortable for a family of four. The kitchen was well appointed and the sleeping arrangements were great. We were high above the beach, so the views were breath taking and the sun perching in the windows in early morning begged you to get up!The location was great those wanting to enjoy the island culture......
My family and I had a fantastic stay at Dan's Punaluu penthouse. The condo was beautiful and exceeded our expectations. It has impressive views - the ocean from one side and gorgeous, lush, green mountain views from the other. The open floor plan and massive windows let in lots of light. Sitting on the balcony watching the sunrise and sunset over the ocean was magical. The kitchen was spacious and the master bath luxurious. It obviously has many high quality upgrades and is uniquely stunning and comfortable at the same time. We were able to take our daughter in the pool and the ocean - right there! There are cute shops and eateries nearby. There are also many sights around the island to see such as Black Sand Beach, Kahana Beach Park, the Polynesian Cultural Center, Valley of the Temples, and Sunset Beach surfing area. We had a very memorable vacation.
My wife and I have stayed 8-10 times over the last 10 years. We absolutely love this place. If you want Waikiki with all the people and traffic then please go there. If you want a restful Hawaiian vacation, go to the windward side of the island where you can stroll beaches with hardly anyone there during the week. And still be within a short amazingly beautiful drive to shopping and restaurants on Waikiki.
The condo is a penthouse condo on the 8th floor of the building only steps from the breach. The reserved parking space is right in front of the elevator. The Kitchen is beautiful (granite counter tops, hard wood floors, wood cabinets) and has everything you need to cook for yourself and your family. The dining and living room has a deck that over looks the amazing beach and palm trees that host a family of parrots every night around 5-6pm.
And what can I say about the upstairs master suite. It has floor to ceiling windows on two sides that give you a view from your king size bed of the ocean and the mountains at the same time. Not only that but the bedroom opens out onto a huge deck which is actually the roof of the building. This gives you a 360 degree view of the beautiful Ko'olau Mountains and the beach up and down the island. If you spend time on the deck you will be able to see whales breaching at certain times of the year (like we saw on our last stay), and almost every day you can see large sea turtles feeding off the beach.
The master bath is amazing too. It is appointed with wood cabinets, glass counters. and marble floors and shower with 3 shower heads (yes 3). It is so cool to come home after a long day at the beach and shower with a view of the beach you were on while you are showering!!!
The beach at Punaluu is great because it is reef protected. My wife and I are not great swimmers but this beach is safe year around because the breakers are far away beyond the reef. You can snorkel or swim year round. If you have kids they will love it because there are no big waves and there is no under toe not matter what time of year.
If you want big waves you only need to drive 15 minutes to the north shore where you will find world famous Sunset Beach, Waimea Beach, and the Pipeline where big wave surfers put on a show.
The Polynesian Cultural Center is only 5 minutes away and there are great restaurants only 10 minutes away at the Turtle Bay Resort on the North Shore.
We will be going back. We hope you come too!
We stayed in this Punaluau penthouse for a week in February. It was beautiful, peaceful and incredibly relaxing. The view is breathtaking and the surroundings all a Hawaiian vacation has to offer. The beach was safe and clean and right outside the building. The bedrooms were comfortable and clean, both with beautiful views and king size beds. There are two daybeds in the living room for extra sleeping. The kitchen had everything we needed. It is a perfect place for a family vacation. We drove all over the island and always loved coming home to our quiet and beautiful paradise condo.
Our suite was situated on the top floor above the beaches where the sun peered in on daily! We enjoyed a daily workout in the gym before breakfast and a walk on the beach and/swim in the ocean. We enjoyed mountain climbing and sun bathing along the coast line all the days and evenings, The evenings were spent at great restaurants along the coast line and the City while the weather proved most suitable throughout our vacation.
Close to Kualoa Ranch, the Polynesian Cultural Center, the Turtle Bay Resort, and Oahu's famous north shore.
