Sitting directly on a small skiff of sandy beach, our place offers ocean views as far as the eye can see. But the beachfront location is just one of the many desirable features.

Upstairs features vaulted ceilings, two bedrooms, two full baths, big great room, gourmet kitchen, dining room, and two large ocean-facing lanais. Downstairs features an additional bedroom, living room and full bath.
Outside, the large beachfront lanai is the perfect place to hang out and relax, and its gate leads directly onto the sand. Tables, chairs, chaise lounges, two-person hammock and a BBQ grill make it a tough place to leave!
Notable amenities: two free off-street parking spaces, W/D, WiFi, A/C in all three bedrooms, 40" flat-panels TVs in all three bedrooms and both living areas, two tandem kayaks, snorkel gear, boogie boards, Graco Pack 'n Play.

Pros vs Cons
1: Home was absolutely incredible!
2: The property manager was a delight to work with and made sure that we had everything we needed.
3: Everything we requested was taken care of in advance.
4: The house is RIGHT on the beach with an incredible view just as the pictures indicate.
5: Home was clean and VERY spacious.
1: Parking was a problem. The rear of the car was literally inches from the street with the front inches from the garage door. We would send someone across the road to indicate when both lanes were clear before backing onto the highway.
2: This area has a homeless issue. We saw some on the beach walking past the house.
This home and location is awesome for families with grown children. I WOULD NOT recommend it for families with young children. That is not the fault of the property management or owner! The property is incredible. It's just a location issue.
Property was nice and it was nice to listen to the waves right outside the door. We think our family with teenagers would have enjoyed it more if we had stayed somewhere that was closer/easier access to people, stores, and activities and also off of the main highway.
A Perfect Slice of Paradise
It’s hard to imagine how this property could have been better. The house was clean, well-equipped, and spacious. We had the time of our life, just feet from the ocean. The furniture is comfortable and the kitchen is modern. There were lots of beach and water toys to keep our family busy for hours. The parking is a little tricky at first, but we figured it out. The location is close to the Polynesian Cultural Center and BYU Hawaii. We would definitely return.
We loved the place. It was exactly as advertised.
The house was clean, had plenty of bedding, pillows, snorkeling gear, boogie boards, pots and pans, etc. We spent most of our time in the open space upstairs and on the patio and didn't feel cramped with 5 adults. We especially loved being right on the ocean where we could swim without having to pack up and drive to the beach. Not to mention having the ocean view at all times. If you're looking for a relaxing place away from the crowds, this is it.
Fantastic location and amenities given we dislike crowds and are happy to organize our own activities, including meals. For families/groups spacious layout allows for a good balance of privacy and social time. House contacts were very considerate, responsive to questions.
Charming tranquility on the beach
We chose to stay here with two other couples for 5 nights. The small town feel close to the north shore is exactly what we wanted and this property was perfect for that. We spent most of the days exploring the island but took advanatage of early morning kayak rides and evening ocean swims each day. We really enjoyed the fact that the house had kayaks, surf boards, snorkel equipment and beach gear there for our use. The master bed was super comfy and waking up to the ocean was heaven. Only nitpicks we had was the grill was unusable- the grates really need to be deep cleaned or replaced and a new grill brush needs to be purchased. That was a bummer and forced us to cook inside the house where it was sweltering in the kitchen and living room. Would have really appreciated a window unit or two in the main area but we do understand we are on an island and not everywhere has AC. Anyways besides from that everything was perfect and we couldn't have been happier. Looking forward to returning soon!
Hau'ula and the surrounding area is often likened to 'old Hawaii,' still representing what Hawaii once was. Instead of large malls and chain restaurants (i.e. Waikiki), the area has family-owned gift shops, unique little restaurants, and a pace of life that many envision when planning their Hawaii trips.
Highlights of the area:
(1) five minute drive to the Polynesian Cultural Center, Hawaii's #1 tourist attraction
(2) many great hikes (some with waterfalls) in the mountains directly behind the place
(3) lush green foliage and mountainsides, drawing comparisons with Maui
(4) good, local people offering a glimpse into 'true' Hawaii living: a truly authentic Hawaiian experience
(5) twelve minute drive to Turtle Bay Resort, and their golf courses, restaurants, bars, massages, helicopter rides, etc.
(6) minutes to good surfing spots, and only about 20 minutes to famous big-wave spots like Pipeline and Sunset Beach
(7) quiet, tranquil, peaceful...the best way to describe Hau'ula!
Other Activities: Island's best hiking in the mountains adjacent to the house.
