Photos and Description of this Hauula holiday condo

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

If you are looking to get away from the hustle and bustle from the tourist crowds, this is the place to vacation. There are no crowds, no malls, and no stress. Instead you will find smiles, wide open spaces, and a calm ocean perfect for swimming and snorkeling with a sandy beach; often times completely deserted. Rediscover that a day still has 24 hours.

After a day of hiking, snorkeling or touring, come back to your tropical home away from home.

PARADISE BY THE SEA offers a unique and truly authentic Hawaiian experience. This beachfront Condo has one of the most incredible ocean views on the island, with spectacular sunrises and a breathtaking moonrise over the Blue Pacific. Take a refreshing dip in our oceanfront swimming pool and a leisurely stroll along the coast and enjoy the forever views of the glorious Blue Pacific. Swim with the turtles or snorkel alongside the tropical fish on a beach that is reef-protected with calm waters that are almost always perfect.

In the winter months, sit on your private lanai and watch the whales frolic, while the morning mist lifts gently over the mountains, never too cold a day to swim in Hawaii Nei. At day’s end, relax with a movie from our extensive video library while enjoying the gentle tradewinds at PARADISE BY THE SEA.

We are located on a tropical white pristine beach on the North Shore of Oahu, in the coastal town of Punalu’u approximately 30 miles from Honolulu and the hustle and bustle of Waikiki, and minutes from the Polynesian Cultural Center, Turtle Bay Golf Course and World Famous Surfing Beaches.

Located in a nine-story condominium complex, this is a newly renovated, beautifully appointed, one bedroom (sleeps 2-5 people) one bath, oceanfront condo, with an unobstructed ocean view, decorated in Hawaiiana motif. Located on the sixth floor with a private lanai and incredible views, gentle trade winds and the sound of surf right outside your door.

This condo is fully furnished, with a fully-equipped gourmet kitchen, ceramic tile floors, granite countertops and stainless appliances. The condo is in a secured building with a keyed entrance to stairways and elevators with free assigned on site parking and free Wifi.

Public transportation 'THE BUS' stops directly in front of condo.

About Elizabeth ( Betty) Knake

Betty, born and reared in Kailua, Hawaii (retired banker) Richard (licensed contractor) hails from Illinois and has been President of the Condo association since 2005. Betty is the Condo Treasurer.

Elizabeth ( Betty) Knake purchased this condo in 2004

Why Elizabeth ( Betty) Knake chose North Shore Oahu

As a child, Betty spend time on the North Shore and has fond memories of the days gone by. For Richard, it was love at first sight when he gazed at the beautiful secluded pristine beach.

We purchased our condo in 2004, gutted, renovated, and remodeled it with lots of TLC, and lived there for three years while Richard built our home in Kaneohe.

What makes this condo unique

Beautiful, secluded safe beach, white sands, can walk for miles, great snorkeling and swimming in a reef protected area. Best place to rest, relax and unwind and realize there is actually 24 hours in a day!

The Quieter Side of Oahu

  • 4 of 5

This was our first time to O'ahu, and we wanted a quiet ocean front stay without paying an arm and a leg. We chose to stay at this condo for a week, and it was one of our favorite vacations ever. What makes it nice is its far enough away from Waikiki that it's not crowded and doesn't have bad traffic--two things we wanted to avoid while vacationing. It's also super close to the Polynesian Cultural Center, Kualoa Ranch (awesome movie site/jungle tours), and awesome beaches. The condo itself is updated and clean, has a great view of the ocean, and was comfortable. Be aware that it doesn't have A/C, but the leaving the windows open and running the fans kept us cool. The building itself is older, but it is well maintained. Arranging the stay itself was pretty simple and painless--the owners are nice and easy to work with. Overall, we had a wonderful vacation and it was very nice to come back to a clean and quiet condo every night, a condo that was out of the hustle of Honolulu.

Great 5 night stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband, I and 15 yr old teenager stayed in Betty's condo in "Pat's at Punaluu" from March 3-8, 2016. My husband and I have been to Hawaii, and Oahu, several times; first HI trip for my nephew. We stayed in Honolulu three days so he could "experience" Waikiki, tour Diamond Head, Pearl Harbor and such; but we prefer the real Hawaii experience not found in Waikiki. This was our first stay in #614 (and at Pat's at Punaluu). First impressions, "This is very nice", "Look at the ocean!", "This kitchen is great"... Teen was excited to see the pool right under the condo lanai (balcony) and the beach just steps away. Ample dresser draws in the one bedroom for storage. While unpacking, I noticed wifi was not connecting and sent Betty a text; she responded within about 30 minutes; but I had already found the switch "off" on the wifi box was resolved the issue myself). Wifi was reliable and adequate speed to video chat with family on the Mainland. Appreciated paper plates and napkins in the condo, although we used really dishes most of the time. Appreciated the array of pots, pans and utensils for cooking! They guys appreciated the array of water toys there to use for free; they snorkeled each day! The shore in front of the condo was always clean, and the water was calm and crystal clear! (In comparison , went to Turtle Bay Resort beach one day and the water was too cloudy from the churning waves to see anything.) Spent every morning watching the sun rise from the lanai or walking along the beach (only a few people out there, so it was peaceful). Each day we watched whales playing outside the reef. No air conditioning unit but the breeze coming in the patio door during the day and coming from the bedroom window (mountain side) at night made the condo comfortable enough. My nephew slept on the pull out trundle bed, he found this very comfortable. The bedroom king bed was comfy as well. Washing machine/dryer a real plus; we packed light (only brought a backpack each!) It really was a great stay. Only cons: Bedroom noisy with rush hour traffic starting at 5am and roosters crowing with windows panels open; but can get hot in bedroom at night unless panels are open for airflow; so choose between noise or cool air. Washer tight to get into. Bathroom towel rod needs attention (kept falling down). Living room wicker-type mat hard on feet. Too many artificial plants blocking views in condo. But all considered - we would stay in Betty's 614 again and recommend friends!

Our Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This was my third stay at Pat's at Punaluu and my second in one of Betty's condos. When we are lucky enough to return, we will definitely book into this unit again. The pictures don't do it justice. Betty is extremely quick to respond to any issues and very accommodating, which is exactly what you want from your host.

I love this property. They are very focused on peace and quiet, with signs requesting such at every turn. Sigh. The property is very clean and you always see people working hard around the grounds and building.

The condo itself is fantastic. The bedroom is spacious, with room to really settle in. I love to cook and the kitchen is ideal with its island and beautiful granite countertops. I spent a lot of time on the lanai listening to the waves, painting, taking photos of the incomparable sunrises, and viewing humpback whales through the binoculars that Betty provided.

The sandy beach is so lovely to walk along as the sunrise breaks on the horizon. The waves are never to big here as there is a natural reef about 1 km out from shore. Although the water tends to be a bit cloudy and a moderate south-north current is usually present, there are a lot of fish to see. While out snorkelling, I was lucky enough to get to swim with and observe a large Honu (Green Sea Turtle) right out from the condo.

As it gets dark early in the Islands we appreciated the HUGE tv in the living room as well as the board games provided.

I was without a car for several days this time and "The Bus" stops right outside. It is easy to use and inexpensive.

Be sure to make the 2 minute walk down the highway (on the other side) to Kaya's Store. They have a bit of everything, a true convenience store. In the back corner is 2 Bald Guys. An absolute must is their fresh catch on salad, but everything is "Ono" there. Outside is Coconut Joe, where you can get an icy coconut, smoothies, or fresh fruit.

We love going to the big Farmers' Market (twice a week) at the Windward Mall in Kaneohe for all of our food. Safeway is right across the street, and Foodland is nearby. There is also a Foodland in Laie.

Betty provides all of the valuable information that you will need on things to do and see. The condo is stocked with tons of equipment as well. From boogie boards & snorkel sets to a cooler & beach chairs.

We couldn't have wished for anything more. We are certain that if you choose to vacation in this condo, you will not be disappointed.

Great Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at 614, Pat's at Punaluu, and had a wonderful time. The building is very well maintained, and the condo is clean, comfortable, and very well equipped. The kitchen has plenty of up-scale appliances, and the furnishings are in great shape. Given that the north end of the island is where the big waves are, we were happy to find that the water in front of the condo is protected by a reef and that the swimming and snorkeling were wonderful. The area is non-touristy--the nearest big resort hotel is Turtle Bay, about 10 miles away. There is some snorkeling gear at the condo, so I would recommend checking it out before renting or buying stuff. There is a Sports Authority in the shopping center across the road from Safeway if you find that you still need some equipment. Betty was very responsive to emails and provides a lot of information about the area. Our nine days in the condo were a pleasure, and we would not think twice about renting the place again.

Perfect Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Great place and Betty was AMAZING! This rental had everything we wanted: an oceanview with a swimmable and safe beach for our 2 young children, a pool and to be able to fall asleep listening to the waves. This place had everything and was super clean! We will def rent this unit again....thanks, Betty!

Please note: I have a number of oceanfront condos in the same complex. If I do not have this condo available, please contact me. I may have another alternate condo available.

We are located on a tropical white pristine beach on the North Shore of Oahu, in the coastal town of Punalu’u, minutes away from the Polynesian Cultural Center, Turtle Bay Golf Course and World Famous Surfing Beaches. Drive 25 minutes along the northern coastal scenic route and enter the famous North Shore and Historic Haleiwa, filled with local style and country ambiance as well as cool surf shops and boutiques, understated restaurants and charming art galleries.

Here you’ll find surfers fueling up at the restaurants in its plantation era buildings before hitting the famous beaches of Waimea Bay, Ehukai (Banzai Pipeline) and Sunset Beach.

Take the southern route and we are approximately 25 minutes from Kaneohe, a town with a number of restaurants, a mall, two shopping centers, and two multiplex cinemas.
