Oahu is called the 'Gathering Place' and is home of Waikiki, Diamond Head and Pearl Harbor. The windward side retains the subtle feeling of old Hawaii, a Hawaii before the multi-story hotels and condos of Waikiki and the urban traffic, hustle and bustle of Honolulu. It still has that wonderful sense of 'Aloha' that you are welcomed and a friend.
Pat's a Punalu'u is about 30 miles from Waikiki and the Honolulu International Airport. The condo sits on a private, reef-protected beach, which is great for kids. The water is about waist to chest deep along the beach and is excellent for snorkeling. There is also a fresh water swimming pool, outdoor shower, exercise room and sauna.
You are 45-minutes from the nightlife of Waikiki or snorkeling at Hunauma Bay.
Our one-bedroom "end unit" can accommodate up to five guests. It has a full-size kitchen and a washer and dryer...though you will probably be "living" in T-shirts, shorts and swimsuits. The condo has ceiling fans, cable TV, stereo and lots of books - including many guidebooks to Hawaii. We provide beach chairs, towels, a beach umbrella, snorkeling equipment, ice chest and other items for your trips to the beach. All you need is your sunscreen and swimsuits.
Please email for availability. We have several VRBO and HomeAway listings and if one is not available, we can let you know about others that may be open.
This is most certainly the best way to experience Oahu. The beautifully decorated and fully equipped condo is in a clean and well maintained building and property with a private sandy beach and great snorkeling. It is ten minutes from one of Oahu's greatest attractions (Polynesian Cultural Centre) and less than an hour from Waikiki, Hanauma Bay, or Pearl Harbour to the south or the famous Big surf of the North Shore. The quiet location is really a very special place in paradise! I would highly recommend it for anybody and would definately be our first choice for future Hawaiian vacations. Kathy and her team did everything they could to make us feel welcome from our first contact. They made sure that we had lots of information regarding amenities, etc. . The description and photos perfectly matched our experience.
We had an awesome vacation!
This place is perfect! We absolutely loved staying here. Kathy and her team are professional and friendly. They made everything so easy for us. The condo has everything you could possibly need, is comfortable and brightly decorated with a fun local feel. We loved how the lanai wrapped around half of the condo, giving us amazing views of the ocean, especially the sunrises. The location is secluded yet within close driving distances of must-see sites. The beach was perfect for our family because it was right there in the backyard and we didn't have to worry about our child playing in big waves. This rental is a real gem and if you're thinking about staying on this side of Oahu, you should seriously consider this one!
First timers to Hawaii and our stay in Kathy's condo made it Perfect!! Watch the sunrise from the private Lanai and have your own private beach to relax, with on-site great snorkeling! Condo has everything you need and Allison gave us great ideas for local places to visit and eat. 'Must' food stops--Ted's bakery for the garlic shrimp and Hawaiian shaved ice With ice cream Daily! Loved our stay and would recommend to anyone looking for some R&R in beautiful Hawaii!
We had a wonderful stay here! Our condo was right on the beach with an amazing view! The location was perfect, only a short drive to the north shore where we spent much of our time. Would much prefer this over a hotel! We had access to snorkels, boogie boards, kayaks... they even provide beach towels so you can save room in your suitcase for souvenirs to bring back! The little town of Haleiva on the north shore is the perfect place to do a little shopping... and of course get some delicious shaved ice! Our host was the best...she made us feel like we were family visiting and was very accomodating. She went above and beyond, paying attention to little details that made our vacation more than we expected. We would definitely recommend this vacation rental and would return again ourselves! I could go on and on about our wonderful stay here but why don't you just come and see for yourself!
Taking a walk on the beach involved walking out the back door of the building, and you were on the beach! On the busiest day during the week we could see 13 people on the entire beach, looking as far as you could see in both directions. We often had the beach to ourselves, with the exception of the occasional sea turtle swimming by. Got some beautiful sunrise pictures from the large 4th story balcony, complete with palm trees in the back yard. If you like kayaking, or want to try it, they have kayaks you can take out into the reef-protected water right behind the condo. For a bigger adventure, ask the owner about the local guide who can take you on a kayaking/hiking trip to Chinaman's Hat Island. Also ask her about my favorite restaurant just minutes down the road. It's called "Ride and Grinds". The restaurant does not look like it would serve 5-star food but it does indeed. This is a corner condo, so you can open the sliding doors on two walls, and let the trade wind breeze flow through. Very clean. I would confidently recommend this place to friends and family.
Absolutely perfect!! We cannot say enough about the accomodations and the area. The calm, clear reefed waters of the ocean just steps in front of the property and mighty, plush green mountains behinds us. Breathtaking! Watched the sun rise every morning, with coffee and camera in hand, from the chairs on the lanai. Such a daily treat. Rented from Kathy, who was a joy to deal with. Very friendly, professional and helpful. (Thank you Kathy for sharing your beautiful home with others!) She gave us info on eateries and activities in the area. The town is in what our family considers the true Hawai'i. Slower paced, relaxed, plush with greenery, beautiful beaches on one side, mighty green mountains on the other. Far enough away from the concrete and city of Waikiki and Honolulu to feel hidden in the beauty of the island, yet not too far that you can't jump in your car and drive down in aprrox 40 minutes or so. We had a designated parking space, never worried about parking. Elevators and stairs available. Bbqs available outside and an indoor gym with an ocean view. Comforts of home, with full modern kitchen w/dishwasher and washer/dryer, stocked with everything you could need...pots, pans, rice cooker, toaster, coffee maker, etc. It has large sliders on both sides of the lanai, making a wonderful constant breeze through the entire unit. We slept with them open and enjoyed falling asleep to the sounds of the ocean. Outdoor activity items stocked too, including boogie board, snorkel gear, beach towels and beach chairs. And if there is something you need, there is a market within 5 minutes walking distance. Not to mention a shrimp truck, shaved ice and sandwich shop there, too. There is a grocery store less then 10 minutes drive up the highway. Another shrimp truck, bbq truck and grilled corn stand up the road, as well. About a 15 minute drive South to Kualoa Ranch, where we rode ATVs, horses and more. 30 minute drive North to Hale'iwa Town and Waimea Falls and less then 10 minute drive to the Polynesian Cultural Center. Our family had an absolutely awesome 9 day stay here on this trip back to Oahu and we will definitely return to this beautiful gem! Mahalo Punalu'u for the beautiful family memories!
This condo is located on the famous North Shore of Oahu. It is a quiet area where you can take a leisurely stroll on the beach or just sit on the lanai and watch the the surf break out on the reef.
