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 Hauula
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'!! :)

Great location with fantastic walk out & ocean view!
Very clean with everything you need to make your stay perfect.
Many thanks to Chris & Al for offering such a well equipped place on the water with a spectacular view!
Absolutely fantastic. Owners were great and bent over backwards to help.
Condo was fantastic. Like being at home but better. It had everything we needed. Al and Chris were fantastic.
Cute condo with amazing view and great owners
The building appears to be a little older and beaten by the Hawaiin elements, so when we pulled up I was a little concerned. When we walked into the condo it was a big sigh of relief. The condo is updated and has modern appliances. The view through the sliding glass door is amazing. Out that door is a short walk to the sandy beach. I woke up early the first morning to see the sunrise, it was some of the most beautiful scenery I’ve ever seen, multiple colors in the sky behind the palm trees on the property. My plan was to get some rest of vacation and sleep in. I ended up waking up at around 615am every morning to see those sunrises, totally incredible every time. The location is great, especially if you want to get away from the city. Prices at the nearby grocery stores were very reasonable, no need to go to Costco in Honolulu. Thank you Chris, Al, and Izzy for everything. -Ryan
We had an absolute blast on this vacation. The condo had everything needed to make our stay wonderful
My daughter and I had the priviledge staying at Chris and Al's place. We even got to meet Chris. She is a lovely woman and such a sweetheart. She made sure we had everything we needed and checked on us. Their place is beautiful and amazing. They do not have air conditioning in the condo but who needs it. There is a breeze when both doors are open and fans to keep you cool. There is plenty to keep you busy from the beach, sight seeing, tours, shopping, snorkeling,
Surfing, or relaxing in the condo. We had a wonderful time and we will be back every year. Thank you Chris and Al.
A mixed bag would be how I would describe this property. On the one hand the plus side is that you are literally at the beach. And it is a nice walkable beach which isn’t always easy to find on the islands. The unit itself is clean. The owners are honorable and responsive. Things work. And the view is wonderful.
On the other hand, know that you will be going to a large, 8 story apartment like building. You will be on the ground floor. While that can be a good thing, the problem is that you are located in the hub of all the activity of whomever is staying at this large complex. Some people who will be there will be people renting for the week like we were. You will have some people there who live there full time. But the mail is right by the bedroom where you sleep. So is the trash bin. For those who need key access it will be about fifteen feet away from where you are trying to sleep. And with no air conditioning (which you don’t necessarily need) you will have to have your windows open. Unless you are a real sound sleeper you will be awakened.
Now there are options. The living room has a Murphy bed. It’s actually a very comfortable bed. And that room affords quiet.I am a sound sleeper. My wife is not. So we didn’t get to sleep together for the week which is kind of a drag. Yes, we could have both slept together on the Murphy bed, but for us it was a bit too small for both of us. But I am thankful that there was the option of that Murphy bed.
So again to reiterate it, it was a mixed bag. I would not want this review to be interpreted as “stay away”. I only mean to give you a full picture of where you are going.
We are located on the North Shore, away from all the Honolulu traffic and congestion, but still just a beautiful 45 minute drive (thru the mountains and along the coastline) from the airport. We are centrally located for many of the popular tourist attractions. We're 10 minutes from the Polynesian Cultural Center, BYU campus, Laie Temple, and Kualoa Ranch; 15 minutes from Turtle Bay Golf Course; 20 minutes from the popular surfing beaches and Waimea Valley; 25 minutes from Kaneohe Bay and the Marine Corps Base; and 30 minutes from Kailua and Haleiwa.
We would love to help you make wonderful memories of your visit to Paradise! Just like one of our favorite sayings, 'What happens in Hawaii ............ stays with you forever'!!
