You will enjoy visiting because part of the time you have the white sandy beach completely to yourself (Yes it is always safe). The area (Hauula) is on the opposite side of the island from the airport and Waikiki. About 45 minutes to an hour drive. It is not far from the Polynesian Cultural Center (about a 10 min.drive). The city bus line picks up directly in front of the unit. Sunset Beach is about 15 minutes away.
Baywatch Hawaii was filmed about 25 minutes away in Haleiwa and North Shore on FOX is filming 10 minutes away in the same direction. Foodland Supermarket is a major chain in Hawaii and has one ten minutes away. The building is eight stories high. The unit is the ground floor corner unit, the most preferred unit. All visitors have agreed that this unit is the best located one. It is thirty steps to a white secluded sandy beach. The ocean is calm because of a reef 1/4 mile out which blocks the waves. It is perfect for kids to enjoy snorkeling and swimming. The building has amenities like professional Bar-b-que area, swimming pool next to your unit and sunning area behind your unit. Your parking stall is included and located right in front of the unit.
The unit extends from one end of the building to the other and measures approx. 850 sq. ft.

08/20/06 Positive The accommodations were very nice and I recommend these to anyone. We stayed 2 days in Waikiki and the seclusion of North Shore was a welcome change. We had easy access to other locations on the island and the condo provided adequate room for 4 adults and a teenager. Thanks Mr. Chen for your gracious hospitality. We look forward to a return visit.

03/29/06 Positive I would highly recommend this vac home to anyone visiting Oahu. It was just far enought away to avoid the hussle and bussle of town but close enough to make the trip at anytime. We appreciated the solitude after very busy days of trying to see and do everything in one week. The washer/dryer and kitchen were a big plus and helped make our vacation great. The only thing I regret is not being able to stay longer. One week is not enough time. Next time we will stay two weeks and most certainly stay at Mr. Chen's place.

We just spent 2 weeks at Emmanuel's condominium in Punalu'u . It is the perfect place! Swimming and snorkeling was fantastic and Emmanuel has thoughtfully provided a closet full of fins, masks, and various ocean sports equipment for your use.
It was a very homey atmosphere and we had everything we needed at hand. The kitchen has every cooking implement you need; the local foodland is just a few minutes up the road. We also found the neighbors in the building to be very friendly and helpful. There is a little store in the condominium complex that carries necessities and is run by Lillian and Robert, two of the nicest people you will ever meet! The pool is very clean and well maintained as is the condo and you won't find a better rental agent then Emmanuel!. We would walk the beach at 4:00 am and felt completely safe.
If your looking for the true spirit of aloha, beautiful beaches, very few tourists, then I would not stay anywhere else! We are already planning our next stay and will be staying for a month in what we found was paradise.
I also would like to add, that this was the first time we used , so I was a little nervous but Emmanuel put me right at ease and supplied all the information I needed and to my surprise our cleaning deposit was here within days of returning home. If you have any questions regarding this condominium rental please feel free to e-mail me.

09/11/05 Positive My family & I just got back from Hawaii and Mr. Chen's condo. I wanted to thank you, Emmanuel, for giving us a chance to create many wonderful memories. Our first night at the condo we ran into problems with the computer and there was a tech there within a half hour. What service!
I have to say that at first, I was beginning to think that I had made a mistake renting the condo in the secluded area...then we made the mistake of going into Waikiki for some "excitement". Waikiki is like LA- lots of cars, traffic, and people. If you want to relax and feel like you are truly in "paradise"- stay here. The condo is clean and loaded with everything including a well needed washer and dryer. The beaches are beautiful on that side of the island. And if you crave the "excitement" of Waikik- it's only about a half hour drive...and you will be so happy to come back to the condo.
I cannot say enough good things. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
And Mr. Chen is very professional and personal.

06/06/05 Positive Our ten day visit was wonderful. A quiet hideaway from the the bustling west side of the island. cool breezes and sandy beaches where you can actually be the only one there at times. the peacefulness of it all was what we were looking for, and found. Thank you Mr Chen. Aloha maika'i no

04/25/05 Positive What a wonderful place to relax and unwind. Mr. Chen has taken care of all the details and we highly recommend his beach house for your stay. His home is lovely and the beach is amazing!! We will come back!!! anne couser coeur d alene, idaho
04/05/05 Positive We were very impressed with the quiet beach and the long stretch of sand for walking every morning. What a difference from Waikiki! we did drive into Honolulu for a day and enjoyed hiking Diamond Head and shopping in the International Market, but were less than impressed with the crowds at Waikiki. It was difficult to find a spot to place our towels! We generally liked the northern end of Oahu which was very scenic and different from our Midwest.
Walt and I felt right at home in the condo. I zeroed in on the chocolate covered macadamian nuts and delicious Haagan Dazs (sp?!) ice cream. A real treat!! Walt's favorite perk was the frosted mugs - he had a beer or two every night on the porch. We both used the internet service several times during the week. It's too bad we didn't have more time for then we could have snorkeled or watched some of the videos. A week isn't enough in Oahu - we are already planning a return visit in the next couple of years. Hopefully, we can stay in the same condo on our next trip.

03/10/05 Positive Thank you.You were a wonderful host the condo was perfect.Very clean loved having the internet to keep in touch with the family back home.We spent the month of Feb there would go back.It was the best vacation ever.The beach was lovely,people friendly could not ask for more.Mahalo

02/12/05 Positive The condo was everything we'd hoped for and more. The swimming pool really was outside our door. The ocean really was 20 feet past the pool. The little convenience store was directly across from our unit. The grandchildren had a whale of a time with all the water toys. The unit was clean and we appreciated the coffee, tea, sugar, etc. that we found in the cupboard. Mr. Chen was a great help to us with all the problems that arose from our end. (Including an extra grandchild coming with us at the last minute.) The movies were great on the day it rained. The beach was superb! Even the gecko our youngest (8) found co-operated and let her have a really good look at him/her. The only complaint ......5 grandchildren and only 1 computer!!! All of them wanted to be on the internet every evening telling family and friends how great Hawaii is, and everything we did that day. Would we stay at Sandy Shores again? In a heartbeat!!
01/25/05 Positive We were a real test of our host's hospitality, arriving
as we did at 2am after a long journey from
Australia and calling for assistance. However,
Emanuel couldn't have been nicer, promptly and
cheerfully returning our call with very helpful
information. The unit was immaculately clean and
stocked with goodies. The proximity to the beach
was amazing and the outlook sensationally
beautiful. We had a great time and only wish we
had had more time to enjoy it.
The Clarksons, Brisbane, Qld, Australia
12/20/04 Positive We all had a wonderful time on our trip to the less travelled part of Oahu! The condo was in very nice condition, and wonderfully convenient to the beach and the pool just outside our door. The beach feels like it is your own secluded beach - there was hardly anyone on it! Thanks to Mr. Chen for his well-stocked unit, and gracious hospitality. We would vacation in the unit again, and hope to some day. Aloha & mahalo!
Gary & Nancy Grimes & Family, Riverton, NJ
05/18/04 Positive We recently enjoyed a nice week long vacation with some friends on Oahu. We knew we wanted to stay on the North Shore away from Waikiki so we were very happy to have found Mr. Chen's condo. It was great! Very comfortable and well equipped. The sheets were even ironed! Wow!!! We definetly enjoyed being able to wake up and walk right out to the beach for peaceful early morning and late night strolls. THANKS SO MUCH MR CHEN
Monica Horne, Rio Rico, Az
04/26/04 Positive My husband and I spent a wonderful three days in the condo. It was our first visit to Hawaii and we just loved the North Shore. So beautiful and unspoiled. The condo was extremely well-equipped and fabulously clean. We loved the location - halfway between Haleiwa and Lanikai Beach. We hope to return someday.
02/26/04 Positive Wow, what a lovely place!
The beautiful beach, practically private, with great snorkelling and spectacular sunrises.
We enjoyed the privacy of the condo over the bustle and crowding of a hotel and saved a bundle of money having a well appointed kitchen with shopping close by.
Definitely the destination on Oahu for us, half an hour to great surf at Haleiwa. Loved watching the pros at Banzai Pipeline and Sunset Beach.
Thank you, Emanuel, for contributing to our fabulous stay with the great condo.
02/23/04 Positive We enjoyed our stay very much. I think the most appreciated amenity was the internet access. It was very nice to be able to keep up with everything going on at home.
The beach was almost always a âÄúprivateâÄĚ beach and had spectacular breaching whales that could be seen without binoculars.
We received our deposit back very quickly which was very much appreciated.
We would definitely stay here again if we return to Oahu.
Angie & Phil
12/16/03 Positive Dear Mr. Chen,
I just wanted to thank you again for allowing us to rent your lovely condo. Despite the rainy weather, we had a wonderful time. The quarters were immaculate and very comfortable. The beach was beautiful and the ocean was just the right temperature. Lisa was able to change her cleaning schedule so that Stan and I were able to stay until evening on Sunday. She seems like a lovely person, as do Bob and Lillian in the little shop next door. I'm sure I'll be back some time in the future and I hope you'll allow me to stay at your place again.

07/14/03 Positive If you want to stay on the most beautiful side of the island, where just steps from your front door is the beach, a pool & a lifetime of memories, this is your place. 5 of us (3 kids) slept comfortably, and had so many extra amenities that were available to us. Early morning coffee on the patio and walks on the beach were so nice. Waiamea Bay was our personal favorite, it was a short drive to paradise. We had the beautiful fish and sea turtles right there. We were able to golf at the different courses, they were beautiful. We all snorkeled and had a lot of fun. We caught the "Aloha" Spirit and didn't want to leave. Waikiki was nice for shopping and the Blue Hawaii Show at the Beachcomber Hotel was very enjoyable. Hawaiian Waters, a swim park, was a lot of fun for the whole family. Eman had movies galore for relaxing at night. Be sure to go to the Crouching Lion for dinner. The king sized bed was roomy and nice. It was nice to have all the amenities that were offered from this condo. The islanders are friendly and nice to talk with. A lifetime of memories starts here!
Steve & Kristinea, Murrieta, CA
12/30/02 Positive We absolutely enjoyed our stay in the condo. We have traveled many places and have never had the amenities provided. The place is stocked with movies, nintendo and games, books even a computer. The locals are very friendly and we enjoyed his nieces! The beach is perfect and you have it and the scenery all to yourself. I would definitely go back. The Days

12/08/02 Positive Hauula is about as far as you can get from Waikiki, literally and figuratively. Definite "locals" area. Condo is steps away from a virtually private beach... we never saw more than a handful of people on a stretch of sand about a mile long. Unit is far
from new, but extremely well equipped... all kinds of snorkel gear of all sizes -- a pleasant surprise.
You have to drive for almost everything -- adjacent store's inventory pretty slim -- but the scenery is beautiful -- both ways. Suggest you get a jeep or convertible! Nearest grocery story (Foodland) five miles north. If you want night life, stay in Waikiki. If you enjoy sunrises, this is your kind of place!
11/12/02 Positive I didn't actually stay at this condo, however, we stayed at another condo in Waikiki -- totally heaven. Upon our arrival, he showed us this condo and I was totally impressed. He was going the extra mile and lining shelves because he had guests coming in two days....this was late in the evening and he offered to show us the condo. Located right on the beach; clean, every electronic gadget you could want. Next
vacation we will split our time between this condo and the Waikiki condo.
11/07/02 Positive I recently rented your condo for a family reunion and we all had such a great time!! Your accomodations were well equipped and very clean and the location along with the quiet atmosphere of Hauula brought us all back to the Hawaii we grew up with. We will definitely be recommending your rental to all our friends locally and on the mainland USA!! Thank you so much for making our reunion wonderful!! Maxine Shea

11/03/02 Positive I just had to leave a note about rental to me and my family. It was truly a great Hawaiian adventure for us and a time we will remember and gauge other vacations by. First I would like to comment on the location, it is so close to the ocean you hear the waves as you relax.The view of the mountians are breath-taking and when we arrived the condo was emaculate. I was nervous about not being able to use my credit card and the three hundred dollar deposit that was required. So I just withdrew the cash from my card, being cheap, and wanting my frequent flyer miles Mr. Chen promptly refunded my deposit upon our departure. My wife wanted me to add that it was a great convience for her that the accomodations had come stocked with video games to keep our children busy while we had some private time to just relax. We intend to visit here again and certianly recomend that if your looking for that special place this is the one. Best Regards, James C. Snyder

10/31/02 Positive I'm a local girl from Hawaii, and took a much needed vacation at Hauula vacation rental. The location is what vacationers imagine Hawaii to be!! And this is coming from a local girl from Hawaii!! You are just a few feet from the clean ocean, no polluted (suntan lotion) water to worry about. The rental is very clean, it had everything we needed. It was definitely a good experience, and what a bargain!! I highly recommend it.
Ingrid, Honolulu HI
10/30/02 Positive We had a great time at the Hauula condo. The beach is literally 20 yards from the front of the condo and gorgeous ocean views. My son, daughter and her friends all thoroughly enjoyed themselves for the week. I have known Mr. Chen for years, and he is honest, dependable and fair. He treated my children as if they were is own. He is truely loved by all of us. Any comments to the contrary, well, I guess you would have to consider the negative source.

10/30/02 Positive Aloha! And Mahalo to the Owner of the best oceanfront condo we've ever stayed at. It was also the first vacation unit we've stayed at that supplied swimming, diving, surfing and fishing supplies for guest to use at no additional cost. Thank you $! I got to sunbathe on the clean white sandy beach, as my husband took the two boys to do the watersports activities. Thank you... Thank you!! The unit we stayed in supplied the most we've ever got in Hawaii. The 2 tv/vcrs was wonderful. The boys watched movies (movie library included!), as we watched ours. The boys played the tv ninento game, as we played the cd stereo (cd music library included!). Access to a computer was my total satisfaction. Large W/D was the BEST! Thank you for relieving stress! We've told our family and friends about this oceanfront getaway (business owners and corporate executives). I am a very particular person... (doctor says) and was very pleased w/EVERYTHING this Owner shares at a very, very reasonable cost. Thank you. See you soon... very soon.
Gaddis Family, Seattle, Washington
10/30/02 Positive 09/17/2002 What a great place to spend the vacation you always wanted....just like the ad reads, 30 steps to the beach, talk about location on a tropical island, it is located in the most tropical area of Oahu, close to everything but enough away to enjoy the spirit and peace of the island, The condo was furnished with every possible need, from books to read to video and CD's, Nintendo and tapes,,,what a great time we had, My son and family stayed with us at the condo (stationed at Kaneohe)and very comfortably slept 6. I highly recommend it and the price was right too. The beach was deserted most of the time and we had it all to ourselves. I would not stay on Waikiki again knowing this place was on the other side of Oahu. Check in and out was easy, and no problem in getting the deposit back,,,,,,my grandsons had a great time with all the snorkel gear and boogy boards, full kitchen, washer and dryer, great beach access on bottom floor, at the end of the building where it is quiet, and I can't say enough about the beach, if anything it is the reason to stay at this condo, fantastic!!!!!

10/30/02 Positive Aloha,
We had the opportunity to stay in this wonderful place.
We loved the location and the condo with amenities was everything and more than advertised. It was well stocked, clean and very comfortable - we were sorry we couldn't stay longer.
In addition, the owner was terrific to do business with. We left the unit clean and in good condition. We received a nice note from the owner who thanked us for our efforts and our deposit was refunded in full immediately.
Thank you for sharing your lovely unit with us.

10/30/02 Positive Hello everyone! I just wanted to comment on my vacation staying at this property #3010 in Hauula. I had the best vacation ever when I stayed here. In fact, it was my 4th trip to Hawaii and I've never been more pleased with any place I've stayed. This condominium is perfect for a small family or for a few friends that want to get away. Literally, it is only a few steps from the glorious beach. There is great snorkeling and the owner even provided equipment for us to explore the beautiful ocean with. The condo was the cleanest place I've ever stayed at on any trip I've been toâÄ¦anywhere, and I've traveled a lot. We all know that Hawaii is known for it's little critters, but I was amazed to have a whole month there staying in a bottom floor condo and not once seeing a bug, unless of course it was outside the screen on the lanai when I was out there listening to the waves crash. Even staying in a highly rated Outrigger property on Waikiki Beach, I have never been so impressed. I must say that I out of many people would be able to tell you how vacation facilities should be. I've worked for Best Western, The World's Largest Hotel ChainÂ® for a year and a half and I know the standards most people set and look for in a place to stay away from home. THIS IS YOUR PLACE! The owner is a wonderful person to work with and completely fair. I would absolutely stay here again and plan to in the future when my time does permit. We got our complete deposit back and didn't have a single problem. We were even treated with delicious chocolate macadamia nuts when we left because we left the place so clean and in its original arrival status. I hope all of you will stay here, because I can vouch that this is a wonderful vacation condo and I will have the most wonderful memories of this trip because of it. Thanks!
Kaylan Pendleton, Phoenix, Arizona
10/30/02 Positive Thanks for the wonderful hospitality....I was very impressed with the condo and the niceties there. The place was immaculate and very well stocked with movies, music, towels, and even some macadamia cookies. It was great.....I plan to come here next year and every year after that....... Thank you so much for your Hawaiian Aloha and your wonderful place.
Peggy Mayo, Pell City, Alabama
10/30/02 Positive Super vacation, super location, super weather. I loved the nice amenities of the condo, the personal touch was very much appreciated. The beach is right out the door, like private, nice and secluded. The support staff, or whatever they were...were great...no problems...just a lot of friendly helpful people. I highly recommend this vacation rental. Thank you
