Overview

About the property

Newer Remodel, Sleeps 2-4, Cool Ocean Breezes, Open Airy Beachfront Condo

The recently upgraded vacation condo "Hale Luana" (pronounced ha-lay loo-ah-nah) is located in Punalu'u on Oahu's North Shore. In Hawaiian, it means 'house of leisure, to enjoy pleasant surroundings, to enjoy oneself, relax, and be content'. This is not Waikiki!

This bright, open and airy fully furnished and equipped beachfront condo will provide you with comfort and convenience during your Hawaiian Holiday.

The fully appointed kitchen has stainless steel appliances, beautiful cherry wood cabinets and granite counter tops. It is fully equipped...and we mean FULLY!

All you need is your food! The unit also has a new washer/dryer for your convenience.

The full bathroom has a shower/tub combination accented with a Hawaiian touch to give you the feeling of the tropics.

The sleeping area has a queen size bed with new linens and privacy screen and is separate from the kitchen and living area.

Additionally, there is queen size sofa/sleeper in the living area with a new mattress (very comfortable), as well as HD Cable TV, with Music Channels and DVD/CD player. There are some DVDs, CDs, books, magazines, board games, and binoculars for whale watching. Oh Yes...Free WiFi and free parking included.

Snorkeling gear, beach chairs, beach toys, boogie boards and BBQ/picnic supplies are also provided.

And if you must stay connected to the outside world, free WiFi is provided.

Enjoy spectacular sunrises and 180 degree ocean views from the lanai, which also overlooks the park-like grounds and sparkling swimming pool. The lanai is the perfect place to start your day with a fresh cup of Kona Coffee or Herbal Tea enjoying the sunrise and gentle ocean breezes. You might even catch a glimpse of the occasional sea turtle, Hawaiian Monk Seal, or whale greeting the day.

Clear evenings bring the glistening moon light over the water.

Hale Luana is located in the legendary 'Pat's at Punalu'u', reminiscent of the earlier days of Hawaii Five-0. This is the “other side of the island…the “real Hawai’i”. The garden-like grounds and expansive grassy areas are spotted with shady palm trees and fragrant plumeria trees. Picnic tables and lounge chairs are provided for your relaxation.

The pool area has chairs and umbrellas. The property also has a small, but modern beachfront fitness room. There is a BBQ area for your use, as well. The complex features 24/7 security, 2 elevators, and free designated parking.

Pat's at Punalu'u Condominium is a totally Smoke Free Complex, but does have designated smoking areas away from the main building.

We are local owners so we will be here to make sure your stay is everything you want and expect it to be. You are always welcome to contact us if needed!

If for some reason we cannot accommodate your schedule, we will do our utmost to help you find a similar vacation rental in the immediate area.

You will love staying at Hale Luana. We guarantee!

About Richard and Gayle Roddy

Hale Luana is owned and managed by Richard and Gayle Roddy of Honolulu, Hawaii. Starting off in Hawaii 40 years ago, we then lived all over, from the snowy Rocky Mountains in Colorado, to the Big Sky country of Montana, to the Sonora Desert of Southwest Arizona. Hawaii is just one of those places that never leaves your heart so we came back, and now we enjoy four generations of our family all in one place. Here in Hawaii we have the 'Spirit of Aloha', meaning we care, give and share with joy. We enjoy Hale Luana for our own occasional personal use, but really want to share it with others so you, too, may have an unforgettable Hawaii experience!

Richard and Gayle Roddy purchased this condo in 2012

Why Richard and Gayle Roddy chose Hauula

It's not Waikiki... it's the OTHER side of the island!

We kind of know every corner of the island of Oahu. When most people visit, all they see of Hawaii are the tourist destinations and crowded Waikiki. Just like rural Molokai, Maui, Kauai or the Big Island, Oahu has so many wonderful, hidden gems, destinations and activities in the area of the North Shore. It's no surprise that Oahu is by far, our favorite island and the beach at Hale Luana is our favorite beach!

What makes this condo unique

Hale Luana is an 'out of the way getaway'. One step onto the lanai looking at that ocean and we were hooked! Everyone is friendly, and there are visitors from all over the world. Our smallest grand-kids love the beach because the waves are gentle and the sand is smooth. Our teenage grand-kids love the snorkeling, kayaking, swimming and exploring. Everyone loves fishing with grandpa and BBQ-ing in the evening. And it's perfect for alone time or couple's time. Remember, it's not Waikiki... this is the real island paradise!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Richard. ...we had a blast in Hawaii. Your condo was great! Thank you for letting us stay. Everything was just awesome.

Take care,

Great place to lay back.

My wife and I enjoyed getting away from Honolulu, and Punaluu was the perfect spot. The view was amazing and we are already planning our next escape.

Great

A window installed air conditioner would have been great, otherwise awesome

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your feed back. We have considered that idea but with the electrical rates in Hawaii being the highest in the nation an A/C unit would be very cost prohibitive for a vacation rental especially. We would have to charge a lot more for rent to cover that increased cost. We are sorry if this caused any discomfort during your stay and we sincerely do appreciate that everything else was ok. Warmest Aloha and Mahalo Richard and Gayle

Loved it!

Stayed here with my husband and our 13 month old daughter. We had a wonderful time and appreciated the provided pack n play and highchair. We really enjoyed being away from the big city and being so close to the ocean. We will be back!

Everything went very smooth!!

  • 4 of 5

I am being very honest when I say, I enjoyed my self the location was amazing, the parking lot had some major cleaning problems going on:( I don’t care to discuss. I would like to share with owners, also the tracks in slider door, floors, & mirrors, behind toilet, were all dirty? I cleaned everything when we arrived and noted and cleaned daily that is just what I do. I sure hope you understand, that maybe Onwer maybe needs to check up on cleaning company? Sorry thank you Mahalo

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your honest review. We have addressed the issues you detailed. As mentioned before...being right on the ocean creates accumulation of humidity, salt spray and sand does create an ongoing cleaning problem. We try our best to stay on top of it. We appreciate your staying with us and appreciate your feedback. Mahalo, Richard and Gayle

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This little condo was a great location for us. Just far enough from the hustle and bustle and close enough to drive if wanted. This had everything we needed. The views of the ocean in front and the mountains behind were breathtaking. Also, the owners were more than accommodating with certain needs. Thank you!💕?

Hale Luana vacation condo is located in Punalu’u of Oahu's North Shore, a quiet, family-friendly area of the island about an hour away from the noise and tourist bustle of Waikiki. About a 45 minute drive from Honolulu International Airport, this vacation rental is perfect for anyone looking for the “real” Hawaii experience!

***********************************

Close by, there are quaint shops and fresh food stands (including the local Kahuku shrimp trucks… you MUST try this shrimp), and just a 20 min. drive away is the famous North Shore surf town of Hale’iwa, which boasts some of the best dining, shopping, art galleries and activities on the island.

***********************************

Oahu’s North Shore has something for everyone... from families with small - or big - children, adventurers and thrill-seekers, those simply in need of some R&R, or couples celebrating a romantic event like a honeymoon or anniversary. The North Shore is world-renowned for its surfing and hosts the Triple Crown, the world’s top surfing competition in November and December at Sunset Beach and Banzai Pipeline, just 15 min. away. There is fantastic snorkeling, hiking, horseback riding, fishing, shark cage diving, wind and kite surfing, and all kinds of other activities to enjoy. An easy and worthwhile hike to Waiamea Falls (there is an admission fee per person) is a 15 min. drive away. At Laniakea Beach, a you can usually catch a view of sea turtles. Just a 5 min. drive away from the unit is the Polynesian Cultural Center for a day of exhibits, demonstrations, and fun learning about the cultures of Polynesia, as well as an award-winning luau and shows. And for the golf enthusiasts, the world famous Palmer and Fazio golf courses at Turtle Bay, just 20 minutes away.

***********************************

Although a rental car is strongly recommended for this location, there are several little grocery and sundries shops within a 5 min. walk and the property is located on the bus line. The condo is equipped with a beautiful 65 page visitors’ directory of things to do and places to go to help you plan your ultimate Hawaiian experience. Of course, steps from the unit is miles of white sand beach for snorkeling, swimming, fishing, kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, and exploring.

***********************************

An hour away, in the city of Honolulu, Waikiki has beaches and streets lined with high-end resorts, restaurants, shopping and dining. Don't forget to stop and get your picture with the Duke Kahanamoku statue. His arms are draped with flower leis and there is a webcam focused on him so you can wave to your friends in real time. Pearl Harbor is a popular sightseeing destination, and the Arizona Memorial is a worthwhile visit, 45 min. away.

****************************************

If you choose to stay 'close to home', Punalu'u, Hale'iwa and the entire North Shore have more than enough to satisfy and entertain. The closest (large chain) grocery store is a 5 min. drive away. The closest dine-in restaurant (price $$) is the historic Crouching Lion, with seashell decor and amazing ocean views. The closest shave ice... right across the street!

***********************************

If you would like more information about the area, things to do, or dining, please contact us. We are here to make your stay unforgettable!
