About the property

Recently Upgraded, Spectacular Ocean View, All Amenities and More,

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!

A great view!

  • 5 of 5

Owner is extremely hospitable and will try everything to make you stay wonderful. I appreciated they have a fully functional kitchen that's easy to navigate. Only need personal food stuff and beverages. It's a protected area and you will sleep safe. Other great "homey" things are, videos, binoculars to see if the elusive glass ball is off the beach,and a barometer!!! It's laid out nice, older, but maintained very well. We will look here again if we visit Oahu again.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this condo! It had everything we needed and the lanai view was so beautiful. We enjoyed sitting there for hours at a time. The beach was very nice. Lots of chairs to sit and enjoy the sound of the waves. The condo is close to beautiful beaches, great restaurants, Polynesian Cultural Center, lovely scenery etc. the area has a laid back, relaxed feeling which is exactly what we wanted in a vacation. We hope to go back to Oahu soon and will definitely stay here. The owners were very nice and easy to work with.

The rooms were small but clean and very well equipped with beach-going gear for every occasion.

The outside appearance was not great but the living space made a great base from which to explore and roam the north shore.

Great stay with very helpful host!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The condo was perfect for our family with two little ones. We slept on the pull out sofa bed and could hear the waves at night. We had a great time exploring the North Shore. Shrimp truck across the street was excellent. Hosts were very helpful.

Absolutely Delightful Little Condo, with Perfect Ocean View!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay! Richard and Gayle have equipped their condo with everything you could possibly need for the perfect stay! When I say everything, I mean everything! It was like living in my own home!

I did one load of laundry when I was there; they had detergent and fabric softener! They provided coffee and teas for the week; there were even dishwasher pods! There were spices and condiments too! In all of my travels, I've never experienced that before. The only thing we had to provide were our own groceries. We ate in some and we ate out some; the food trucks were a great way to enjoy the local cuisine....and we did!

Richard and Gayle give many recommendations for a full island experience and we took full advantage of their recommendations; we did as much as we could, while we were on the island! They thought of everything to help make your stay as wonderful as possible. Oh, and did I mention, they even have snorkel and beach equipment for you to borrow? Yes, we were able to snorkel right outside of our condo! The snorkeling was most enjoyable. It's not often that you can do that right outside of your condo! I guess I should say that it is also a private it's never crowded.

We enjoyed 6 rounds of golf at the Turtle Bay Golf Club, went to the Nut Farm, took many scenic drives, went to the Dole Plantation, went to Diamond Head, went to Hanauma Bay to snorkel, visited Pearl Harbor, and one of the best parts was sleeping on the sofa bed (yes, the sofa bed), with the patio door open, so we could sleep to the sound of the ocean roaring and slapping the shore, every single night! I ordered a sound machine, while I was there, so that I could have the ocean sound with me, when I returned home. I slept wonderfully while I was there!

Richard and Gayle have great communication with you too. This is the place stay; if we ever go back to Hawaii, we will stay in one of their condos for certain! Thanks Richard and Gayle for a great experience!

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!
