Overview

About the property

Beachfront Studio right on the BEACH!!!

The Hale Le'a Le'a, which in Hawaiian means the “HOUSE OF GREAT PLEASURE”, resides beach front on the famous shoreline of North Shore Oahu.

Just steps to the beach and you'll be digging your toes in the sand and hopefully see a Honu or two, (our resident Hawaiian green sea turtles), bobbing in the the ocean. Our beach is serene and semi private, but if you prefer we are also close to all the world renowned North Shore beaches, such as Ali'i Beach, Chuns, Lonis, Waiamea Bay, Banzai Pipeline and Sunset beach.

Waialua is a wonderful and very centralized location. Just 2 miles to historic Haleiwa town. There you will find many unique boutique and surf shops. There is a wide array of restaurants, ranging from fresh local seafood, Thai food, Mexican food, “Kua Aina” for burgers and sandwiches, the food trucks that specialize in shrimp plates and don't forget Matsumoto's for a shaved ice.

The activities available are endless, from Scuba dives, deep sea fishing, Shark adventure tours, whale watching (seasonal), or rent surf boards, paddle boards, jet skis, kayaks or snorkel gear.

And a short drive to Dillingham Airport offers skydives, ultra light flight tours and glider rides. Mokuleia Beach, the Polo fields, horseback riding and Kaena Point are also nearby. And don't forget the Dole Pineapple Plantation, Waimea falls, the Polynesian Cultural Center and Turtle Bay.

Easy day trips to Pearl Harbor Memorial, Diamond Head Crater, Waikiki, Makapu'u Lighthouse, and shopping at the swap meet at Aloha Stadium.

And of coarse remember to just relax at Hale Le'a Le'a, the “HOUSE OF GREAT PLEASURE”. Listen to the sound of the surf and the trade winds blowing through the coconut palms with a Mai Tai in hand at sunset.

About Dennis

Denis and Lorraine, live on the property and had our wedding here in 2005.

Why Dennis chose North Shore Oahu

Being Beach Front and watching the beautiful sunsets.

What makes this studio unique

There is nothing better than being beach front. The sound of the surf, the cool trade wind breeze, the Hawaiian sea turtles out front, and of coarse the sunsets!

Perfect get-a-way for 2

It's so relaxing to wake up to the sound of waves breaking, then sit on your private lanai, have a cup of coffee, and enjoy the beautiful view. The surf town of Halaiwa is just a few minutes away where there are plenty of places to eat and shop.

You can see sea turtles and snorkel dive with the swim gear provided. The water is clear and warm and just steps away.

If you are looking for a place to relax and enjoy the lifestyle of the north shore this is it.

Beautiful, peaceful, & perfect North Shore living!

  • 5 of 5

I loved staying here! My friends ended up renting a house just down the street too so we had a blast using the grill & lanai area. The beach-front access is convenient and incredible. The sunsets are unreal!!! I also saw a few rainbows from this house. It's heaven! It was the perfect sized space for me but also allowed for hosting. Can't say enough good things about working with Joanne and the landlords. They were flexible, kind, and helpful! Joanne gave me super advice on where to go for anything & everything.

I will be back, hopefully!!!! :)

Hale le'a le'a

  • 3 of 5

The view and location was all that was promised. We knew there was no air conditioning going in, but the need for all the fans to be on at night for us to be able to sleep, drowned out the sounds of the ocean. The bed was comfortable and the shower pressure was good.

Our main complaint was the condition of the appliances. The fridge was so moldy that I hesitated to even keep bottled water in it. There were no (easily found) outlets in the kitchen area, so toast had to be made with the toaster on the floor. I balanced the coffee maker on the edge of the sink for that outlet. ( It might also be helpful in the description of the property, mention should be made that there is no stove! It should not be left to reading the reviews to find that out). With some internal and MUCH NEEDED improvements, the place would be perfect.

Owner's Response: Thanks you for the response. The lack of a Stove is a County regulation, but that said , I have added to the description to my listing that says unit has "no stove top or large oven". It has lots of other ways to cook similar things, such has hot water or microwave etc. I hope this helps. Except for the BBQ, most guests eat dinner out at one of the many choices in the area. You can read many positive things about my Housekeeper Jo ann in the reviews. But she is human. I wish you would have reached out to us the first day, and noticed us about the refridgerator and worn equipment. We certainly would have been there to correct any cleaning oversights. So for future guests, please do not keep issues a secret until you check out. Please notify us and we will correct the problem, Thank you.
