Kahuku House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

Beautiful Home on 1/2 acre Property with own private driveway. Large manicured Lawn faces Swimming Lagoon directly in front of Property. Year round sunsets can be enjoyed from the Deck and yard. Old style barbecue with picnic tables is located right next to the beach. Giant Ironwood trees give shaded relief from the warm beach just steps away.

The Owners have had the property for 45 years; building this house 12 years ago. The pride of owning such a jewel is reflected in the excellent condition of the home and property.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This was the absolute most perfect location. Quiet house all to yourself rite on the beach. We practically had the whole beach to ourselves the week we were there. There were lots of beach toys, lounge chairs etc. we enjoyed BBQ in the evening. We went into Honolulu a couple of times and couldn't wait to get back to our beach house. Mark is a wonderful host. Loved his suggestions on where to eat and things to do.

Loved swimming bye the waterfall at Waimea Valley a short 15 min drive away.

Such a lovely house, tranquil and peaceful. We enjoyed every minute. The location is great, close enough to everything you need, including great shrimp trucks and fruit stands. The ocean and the beach were great. I only wish we had more time there. It's hard to find that balance of sitting and relaxing with exploring the island. I'd come back here in a heartbeat. And Mark is awesome. He took great care of us! Can't wait to visit again one day!!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was great. The house was very comfortable and clean. We couldn't ask for a better host/owner than Mark.

If you're looking to get away for some peace and quiet while having access to the beach and other local activities this is the place.

Five star!!!

  • 5 of 5

Kawela Kai on the Beach was all and more than expected. Sunsets were to die for. The listing description was totally accurate and the amenities were fantastic. Beach equipment from surf board, snorkeling equipment, boogy boards, kayaks and lounge chairs were provided. The 3 bedroom home was clean and extremely well stocked. A wonderful welcome basket awaited on the dining room table upon arrival. Mark, the owner, lives next door and was available to answer any questions that we had and suggested many local signts, beaches, attractions and restaurants. We had a wonderful time and would highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a beach home on the North Shore of Oahu. We loved our meals at Lei Lei's, Seven Brothers Burgers and Haleiwa Joe's Seafood Grill. We went to The Pointe at Turtle Bay to watch a sunset, which is billed as the best sunset on the North Shore, but, really, I think the views of the sunset is better from the back porch of Kawela Kai. We also did some snorkeling and surfing. Mahalo, Mark!!

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5

This home and location were fantastic. Gated away from any outside noise, and with a stunning view from the deck and yard, we couldn't have asked for anything more! Mark was the perfect host. The home is comfortably appointed and quite clean. We loved the sandy swimming hole within about 30 feet of the house. Thanks, Mark! We can't wait to come back!!

LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this little piece of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

I visited Kawela Kai from June 3 - June 8, 2016 with my husband, son, daughter, and son-in-law. My daughter had just graduated with her MSN as a Nurse Practitioner, I had not seen my son since he moved to Japan last October, and my husbands birthday was June 8th, so we had lots of reasons to celebrate and this was the perfect place to do it. We arrived in Oahu around 6:00 pm and were a little concerned that we might have problems finding the property in the dusk/dark, but we gave Mark a call and he gave us directions that lead us straight the the drive. He had fresh bananas, a delicious pineapple, and a bottle of wine waiting for us when we arrived. I loved the privacy of the drive and the home, it has the feeling of a little hideaway. At night. with the sound of the surf, the birds, and the other "creatures" there, it is so tranquil, quite a different world from the Waikiki scene! It is very comfy, with plenty of room for everyone. I loved having the convenience of a washer and dryer. Mark is the perfect host. He is not at all invasive, but he is there if you need him... and if it is water toys you need/want, he has them and is willing to share. :) When we planned our trip, we decided that we wanted to see/do all while we were there and save the "down" time for beaches back home. That is my one regret... that we didn't spend more time just enjoying the beauty of this place, the beach, the water, and the company of each other while we were there. My daughter's only regret is that she did not get to see/swim with a turtle. Mark says they are out there, but she couldn't find one. :) I am a beach person, so if I am outside, I am on the beach, walking, or lounging in one of the nice beach chairs provided by Mark. My husband loved the big porch. It was as close as you could get to the beach without being on the beach and had a nice breeze from the ocean. The views here are absolutely beautiful! There are lots of food trucks nearby, we tried several and did find any we did not like. Without air conditioning, it did get a little warm during the heat of the day, but the solution to that is to hit the beach and go swimming! The only real negative for me is that we did not have enough time here! We just never have enough time together as a family, especially in a place as beautiful and as special as Kawela Kai on the beach. Thanks for sharing your home Mark, we hope to return someday. If we do, we are just going to hang out there and look for turtles. :)
