- THE CAPTAIN'S HOUSE -

Welcome to The Captain’s House, a historic home that sits on one of the most stunning beaches on the island! This newly renovated home has three bedrooms with a/c, a designer kitchen, and lots of outdoor areas for dining and lounging. A wall of windows runs the length of the home, affording endless ocean views and allowing soft sea breezes. The Captain's House has a covered lanai for outdoor dining, and the sun deck overlooking the beach is the perfect spot to watch the sun sink into the Pacific every evening. Other amenities include wi-fi, TV’s in every bedroom, privacy fence with gate, off street parking, washer and dryer, BBQ grill & outdoor shower. Home sleeps a maximum of 8 guests; please see below for a detailed description of bedrooms.- THE HISTORY - This home was built by Captain McClay in the late 19th century. On a trip to Hawaii from the East Coast, the Captain used as ballast the lumber he would eventually re-purpose to build one of the North Shores first beach homes. He chose a protected beachfront area unrivaled in beauty to build upon. For generations it was home to the Captain’s descendants, and the current owners have been caring for the home since the 1960’s. For the first time in its history, the Captain’s House is now available to island visitors.

The home has been carefully restored and modern amenities added; including a renovated kitchen and a/c in every bedroom. In decorating the home, the owners kept all original furnishings that were custom to it. There are original vintage fixtures along with new, as to show the natural progression the home's age. There is a piece of furniture in the home representing every decade from 1920 on! The Captain’s House is filled with local art, including that of the Captain’s granddaughter, Emily Giese, a ceramicist whose work can still be seen in the kitchen and dining room table tile, and also in concrete work outside.

- THE BEACH -

Chun’s Beach is an absolute favorite among locals and those in the know, yet never crowded. The location is prime – the spot was chosen not only for its beauty, but also for the protection provided. Many homes advertise as being located at Chun’s beach, but The Captain’s house is one of only three that actually enjoys this privilege. The beach in front of the home is wide with soft sand. During calm weather the swimming and snorkeling are divine, and you will find sea turtles bobbing next to you in the water regularly. Close by surf breaks are Chun’s, Lani’s , Holton’s , Jocko’s and Leftovers. Waimea is a mile down the road, Sunset Beach just four miles away.

- THE NEIGHBORHOOD -

You’ll see why travelers return yearly to the North Shore once you experience the laid back beach lifestyle and endless Aloha. The activities nearby are endless, highlights include excellent hiking trails, snorkeling, stand up paddling, shark tours, zip–lining, yoga on the beach, golfing, spa services, and luau’s. The friendly town of Haleiwa is located just two miles down the road for grocery shopping, restaurants, and boutiques. The nearest waterfall is a mile away at Waimea Rainforest. The airport is 28 miles, Pearl Harbor 26 and Waikiki 36 miles. BEDROOMS :

Reviewer Comments:

My family stayed at the Captain's House for our Hawaiian vacation and we couldn't be happier. the house was very clean and comfortable. The location could not be beat. We stopped whatever we were doing to make sure we all were sitting on the beach outside the house to watch the sunsets. We would absolutely stay there again when we go back to Oahu!

Reviewer Comments:

The location is outstanding. The furnishings are okay but generally deconditioned for instance the sofa sags in the middle, shower curtains are moldy, master bedroom door handle falling off. The outdoor furnishings are in disrepair. The kitchen is okay. It is a real pain to enter and exit the property from the street. Will stay elsewhere next time.

The house had its vintage charm with all the modern amenities. It was very well-appointed. The location was perfect, right on a popular surf beach with a life guard. The surfers in our party were in surf heaven. Very kid friendly. I would definitely return to this house. Management company was terrific.

Reviewer Comments:

We loved staying at this house. Very roomy and comfortable for 6. We could have had 2 more easily. Great location!!!!!! beautiful beach as many nearby were rocky or nonexistent at high tide. Nice quick drive into town (Haleiwa) for great food. The only suggestions would be twofold: The gate is a pain to relock because the lock and access are very small. It would also have been nice to have access to beach chairs. While the kids are comfortable on towels, we would have been more comfortable in beach chairs. We did not see anywhere to rent. Possibly you do have that option that we were unaware of, but we rent properties frequently at beaches and it is nice to be able to rent them and have them dropped off and picked up at the property. We would stay here again definitely and thoroughly enjoyed the week. The inside was spotless and the kitchen well equipped. The outside had some stuff laying around from previous renters, i.e. sand tent and misc other things that I cleaned up. It is a quick walk up the road to a beach where we saw two sea turtles sunning. Ted's Bakery had delicious pastries. The natural beauty of this island is unsurpassed and we had a very relaxing week. We also commuted into Honolulu for 2 basketball games at the U of Hawaii as our daughter was playing in a tournament there and this was easily doable, about 45 min to 1 hour.

Reviewer Comments:

We stayed at this home for a week in late October. It was easy to find and check-in instructions were clear. The home itself had everything we needed (except for a coffee grinder). We particularly enjoyed the stunning sunsets. This may be the best location on Oahu to enjoy the sunset. Although this is Hawaii, we had no problem with roaches and other pests. The beach was very empty for the duration of our whole stay, probably due to swimming being forbidden because of high waves. I can only recommend this property.
