Overview

Photos and Description of this Hauula holiday condo

1 Bedoorm(King) + Queen Murphy Bed, Bath w/Tiled Shower, Free WiFi & Parking

'Our Piece Of Paradise' is a BEACHFRONT, GROUND FLOOR WALK-OUT with an unobstructed OCEANFRONT view. On a beautiful, quiet, sandy beach that is only 30 steps away. Our beach is reef protected, meaning the waves break offshore. So the ones coming onto the beach are calm. Making our part of the ocean good for swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, paddleboarding, sailing, and fishing. It's especially good for small children.

Please notice, we have 2 condos now! If this one is booked, look at listing #3777905, we just bought it a few months ago. We did some other remodeling on this one, too, the last time we were there. We just finished remodeling the bathroom. We took out the tub and replaced it with a beautiful tiled shower. We also took down the popcorn ceiling and replaced it with a nice flower petal design. That along with the new tile floor we put in the bedroom, are some of the minor updates we've put in that don't show up very well in the pictures. We want you to enjoy our vacation home, and come to love it as we do. Our goal is to have you walk in, take one look at the gorgeous ocean view, feel the Trade Winds blowing through, listen to the waves... and immediately relax & let all your stress start melting away. Close your eyes and imagine it now.... doesn't it sound wonderful?

We enjoy beautiful sunrises in the morning and moon rises at night. We have seen big Sea Turtles sleeping on the beach in the morning, and Whales spouting and breaching on the ocean(from November to April). We like to sit on the patio and watch the waves break on the reef, sometimes we even sleep on the Murphy bed in the living room just so the waves can lull us to sleep. Then, if we leave the curtains open a little, we can wake up to a gorgeous sunrise streaming in through the lanai window. It is truly our idea of Paradise! Hopefully, it will become yours, too!

Many people have told us we have the best location in the building because of our unobstructed ocean view, along with the convenience of being able to just walk right out to the beach. Which you will have practically all to yourself, because there is no public beach access. The pool area is also just for residents, you need a key FOB to enter (which helps to make it safer for kids).

You'll be happy to know there is no lock box to mess with. We are one of the few owners who employ an agent to welcome our guests personally. She will show you where everything is, how to use it, and be your on-island contact person while you are here to help with any questions you may have.

You will have ''No Worries'' as the locals say...only to decide if you are going to spend the day on the beautiful beach outside your lanai or go for a scenic drive along the coast to do some sightseeing.

We have a true 1-bedroom (not the small sleeping alcove some call a bedroom). We also have lots of dresser, closet, and cabinet space, so you will be able to empty your suitcases and make yourself at home. We know some of you like to fall asleep listening to the TV, so we have one in the bedroom and one in the living room. We have tried to stock our vacation home with all the things we enjoy when we are traveling. In fact, we've just added some things from reading our guests comments about some things they thought would be nice to have, that we didn't think of before.

One of my favorite things is the Murphy Bed. You will have the choice to sleep in the bedroom on the king size Sealy Plush bed, or in the front room listening to the waves and waking up to see the Sunrise from the queen size Serta Euro-Top Murphy Bed. When we remodeled, we purchased new SS appliances, cabinets, counter tops, rattan furniture, linens, dishes & silverware, cookware, beach towels & mats, beach chairs, snorkel gear, boogie boards, 2 coolers, 2 lounging chairs, binoculars, and much more.

There is almost always a nice breeze blowing thru the condo due to the trade winds, but for those who like a fan...we have 2 ceiling fans with remotes and a pedestal fan. We have a big assortment of books & DVDs for all ages. We have also prepared a binder showing nearby grocery stores, churches, restaurants, and doctor; along with sightseeing tips, coupon books, and shopping suggestions.

We purchased ''Our Piece Of Paradise'' in 2011 and spent 2 months remodeling it. The kitchen was the most time consuming, but it was worth it because it was a labor of love. We've hired the best cleaning person in the building so our guests can be assured the condo will be freshly cleaned and ready for you to enjoy. For those of you who like some added piece of mind, there is a security guard on duty from 8pm-6am Monday thru Friday and all day on Saturday and Sunday.

About Chris and Al Livingston

Al asked me one day what my favorite place of all was to go on vacation. I didn't hesitate for a minute, I said 'if I could afford it, I would go to Hawaii every year'. So he surprised me with a trip to Paradise for my birthday. He had never been there before, but he came to love it as much as I did. We had been engaged for over 3 years and just didn't have time to plan a wedding, or know where to do it since our families where spread out across the country. So one morning, not to long before we were supposed to go home, he surprised me with a trip to get a marriage license... and we were married at 'Sunset on the Beach' two days later! Needless to say....I have come to LOVE his surprises!! ;)

Chris and Al Livingston purchased this condo in 2011

Why Chris and Al Livingston chose North Shore Oahu

Since then, it was always a dream of ours to own our own 'Piece Of Paradise'. But we wanted to be away from all the traffic and congestion of Honolulu.Our favorite part of the island was the North Shore area, so we started looking there. We fell in love with this condo is soon as we walked in and looked thru it...to see the ocean right out the lanai! We also thought it was a sign that it should be ours because the condo's number is the date we got married!! :)

What makes this condo unique

We would love to share 'Our Piece Of Paradise' with you, so you can have the same wonderful experience in Paradise that we do. We especially love it when we have couples stay who are getting married or honeymooning on the island...it brings back some great memories! But we also really enjoy making any occasion you have...even more special!! Just like one of our favorite sayings, 'What happens in Hawaii... stays with you forever'!! :)

Best Kept Secret On Oahu

  • 5 of 5

This place is truly the best kept secret on Oahu.

This was our 2nd trip, having stayed here before in 2014 with our kids, we were excited to return for an adults only trip. Just 10-30 minutes from the legendary North Shore Beaches, Turtle Bay, and the Polynesian Cultural Center, this spot is centrally located to a number of key points of interest. The north shore surfing was pumping, and waves reached a maximum height of 18 feet.

Pat's at Punaluu is a little slice of beachfront heaven on the rural northern windward side of the island, just 45 minutes from Honolulu. I was more then delighted when we took the scenic drive from Honolulu to the other side of the island thru Kaneohe, Kahuluu, & Kahana, which placed us in the heart of some of the most lush and picturesque countryside, passing film locations , such as Jurassic Park, 50 First Dates, & Karate Kid Part II. There are photo opportunities at every turn in the road, on the way to the condo. The condo was well appointed, clean, and had everything we needed, including a walkout view of the ocean, which was ideally located with access to the blender for mixing cocktails during those lazy days on the lounge chair (just steps from the patio).

Punaluu is slightly cooler then the steamy leeward side of the island, due to the tradewinds and therefore is far more comfortable on days, when we wanted to stay out of the scorching sun and just lounge around. The beach is very calm and serene, with minimal waves, making it a very safe beach for families.

Our favorite excursion were a massage scheduled with the help of Chris & Al by a local in a nearbye town and Captain Bob's Sandbar Snorkel Cruise, out of Heeia Harbor (Kaneohe).

We will definately be back!

Amazing property!

  • 5 of 5

Everything you will need! Close enough to Waikiki and tourist attractions, yet come home to the country! We stayed 7 days.. The murphy bed was a blessing having the winds run through the condo and keep us cool! We were celebrating my boyfriends 53 birthday! We were so impressed staying here, we are coming back in May to celebrate MY 55 birthday not for 7 days but 14!! You will NOT be disappointed staying here!! Having a private beach right outside your patio every day and the sun rises are simply amazing!! A five star condo rental while in Oahu!

Short walk to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 5 nights at the end of June. It was the perfect spot to stay. Just steps away from the beach which had great sand and was perfect for snorkeling and swimming. We put our 5 year old in the master bedroom and slept on the Murphy Bed which was great for listening to the Ocean at night. Thanks!

Very homey and well taken care of

  • 5 of 5

The owners have made this condo very comfortable and well-stocked with the basics and more. It felt as if we were staying at a friend's home.

The setting is perfect - walk right out the lanai door to the beach. The lawn on the grounds was soft and lush. The beach was great for swimming all day. Beautiful sunrises!

Guide books, maps and a binder full of local information made it easy to find our way to groceries, cafes, beaches and entertainment.

Spacious, comfortable King-size bedroom and lovely tile shower.

Neighbors are couples and families. Everyone observed the quiet time.

We highly recommend this vacation condo!

Aloha Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect! So easy to secure, met on site by property manager, check out was super easy and prompt refund of deposit. We would stay here again and again. The property was just as described, very clean, walk out to beautiful beach, We slept on the murphy bed by choice so we could here the ocean and feel the breeze! This unot is in a larger complex, but was still very private. We are have a newlywed mentality even after 25 years and this place was awesome. You can absolutely rent this place with no fear. We can't wait to go back!

Notes:
We have tried to stock 'Our Piece Of Paradise' with everything that we have appreciated while on vacation ourselves in the past. We have beach chairs, towels & mats, at least 2 boogie boards, 4 snorkels & masks, and 2 pair of swim fins. There is also a pair of binoculars, 2 coolers, a hair dryer, clock radio, iron and ironing board. Our bathroom has a tub & shower for those who like both. There is almost always a nice breeze blowing thru the condo due to the trade winds, but for those who like a fan...we have 2 ceiling fans with remotes and a pedestal fan. We have a big assortment of books & DVD's for all ages. We have also prepared a binder showing nearby grocery stores, churches, restaurants, gear rental info, sightseeing tips, and shopping suggestions. The complex also has a fitness room for those who like to keep in shape while on vacation. There is also a security guard on duty from 8pm-6am Monday thru Friday and all day Saturday & Sunday, for those who like added piece of mind.
