About this property

  • Rent the entire estate or just a portion of it
  • Surfboards, kayaks, Paddleboards (SUP) and snorkel equipment included!

Chuns Reef Beach Estate sits on a lot of approximately 10,000 sq ft, with 130 feet of ocean frontage. It is located three miles from Sunset Beach, Waimea Bay and Haleiwa town, on the famous North Shore surf spot and snorkeling beach at Chuns Reef.

The home was originally constructed as the Laniakea Train Station in the late 1800s. Because of it's history, it is built much closer to the ocean than current regulations allow - closer than most oceanfront homes on Oahu. It's unique position as a point home on the edge of Chun's Reef Beach means there are neighbors on only one side.

We have raised the home above the winter surf on large cement pillars, added wide wrap around lanais, and recently added a beachfront hot tub for the exclusive use of our guests. The home's location and elevation give it an unparalleled view of the beach, ocean, turtles, and sunset; and allow easy beach access. Like most of the homes in the area, ours is built next to the Kamehameha Highway, a two lane country road which offers the only access to the North Shore's famous beaches. The hills behind the home are undeveloped lending the neighborhood an open rural atmosphere.

Chuns Reef is directly in front of the house, with seven famous surf breaks nearby, suiting beginners to experienced riders. When the surf is small, snorkeling is excellent on the reefs near the home. Chun's Reef is one of the North Shore's best surf breaks for shortboards, longboards, or SUP (stand up paddle). There is a great diversity of marine life and tropical fish species. And then there are the Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles, who have chosen to pick just our reef for 30 years on Oahu. They crawl up on the sand to bathe in the sun; sometimes you'll see ten or twenty in a day.

The interior of the home was remodeled in 2006, and features many antiques from around the world. All units have wireless internet or plug in for your computer, with full cable broadband bandwidth. All units feature digital TV with HBO and Showtime on demand, thirty music stations, and pay-per-view movies. The phone line is shared with free long distance calls to US and Canada.

Two washers and dryers are shared between the units. All linens are provided, including beach & bath towels. There is a private gated walkway with four steps to the white sand beach. The property also has a shared outdoor exercise area. Gas and coal BBQs are available for outdoor entertaining.

There is secure parking for one car for each unit in the driveway, and there is a bus stop in front of the home. There is a very old thick rock wall surrounding the property, with mature foliage, adding a measure of privacy and shielding the property from road noise. The property has monitored security cameras and a motion light system.

We rent the estate as three separate units: Deluxe Ocean Sunset (2 bedroom, sleeps 6, elevated lanai, expansive views), Oceanfront Bamboo Studio (Sleeps 4, shaded oceanfront lanai, steps to the beach) and Detached Garden Cottage (1 bedroom, very private, outdoor garden lounge area). All units may be rented together at a discounted rate.

DELUXE OCEAN SUNSET  ($395/night) The upstairs of the home was the main building for the train station. It has a large living area and generous kitchen, single private bathroom, master bedroom and open den with additional double bed. There is a wrap around lanai with outdoor dining area. The kitchen, living area and lanai enjoy expansive views of the ocean and the beach. The kitchen has a full size refrigerator, dishwasher and microwave oven. The upstairs master bedroom has two windows facing the road, and air conditioning so you can shut the windows if you like. The master is closer to the road than the other rooms, but wood shakes outside and insulated interior wood walls ensure it is a quiet place to sleep. In the winter, the waves are so loud that occupants only feel the vibrations and hear the ocean. Even in the summer, with the trade winds and light waves, the ocean sound still fills the home. Cool sea breezes are complemented by ceiling and floor fans throughout the home. Deck furniture and sleeper lounge are brand new as of June 2009.

OCEAN FRONT BAMBOO STUDIO ($289/night) The oceanfront bamboo ocean studio is cut into the side of the hill, under the house. It is surrounded on three sides by rocks, and very private. On the northern side, glass sliding doors offer an expansive ocean view, and open onto a large covered patio (lanai), just steps from the beach.

The studio was remodeled in April 2006, and features a granite kitchen counter top, bamboo walls, a cedar ceiling and 500 sq ft of parquet wood flooring. In the living area there is a queen bed and double futon couch bed and a large TV. The kitchenette has convection and microwave ovens, a mini refrigerator, blender and coffee maker. The private bathroom has a stand up shower.

The covered lanai is roughly 300sq ft, with an additional 250sq ft of uncovered patio area. There is a hammock and gas BBQ on the lanai, a coffee table, small dining table and chairs. Nearby, a private gated walkway leads to the beach. The hot water yard shower is great for a quick rinse off after swimming.  In Dec and Jan the waves increase and we move Lanai furniture to Bamboo side yard patio and may put storm board over the front sliding glass doors for a day or two if necessary.

GARDEN KOI POND COTTAGE: ($199/night)  Our garden pond cottage originally was the smoke house for the Laniakea train station. Pineapple and sugarcane workers set the train station alight while cooking their BBQ lunch, around the turn of the century. They decided that it was better to make fire in a separate structure! Today this is a detached cottage next to the rock wall and highway. It still has the original BBQ in the closet, and the original train station bathroom.

The cottage enjoys an ocean view and is just across the driveway from the white sand beach. It was remodeled in May of 2006 and is very clean and well maintained. The cottage has a small bedroom and kitchen, and a private bathroom with bathtub. Bedroom and kitchen are attached; the private bathroom is an eight foot walk down a covered pathway. The unit has fan and air conditioner. Two sets of sliding glass doors and main door allow cross ventilation by trade winds.

The cottage has a bench and table in the living/ kitchen room. It also has a private patio covered with a fish pond/ waterfall and a small dining table and two chairs. In addition there is a private covered small patio on the beach for the studio.

The first patio is on the mountain side of the property, and has a fish pond and small waterfall. The area has lots of plants, and is nestled behind the rock wall. There is a small dining table here, and it's a beautiful place for lunch in the shade. You can hear the road from this area, though.  The second patio area is on the east side of the property, right next to the beach. It's great for a romantic dinner or an oceanfront breakfast.

This property is located near Jocko's. A shortboard break on a beautiful beach across from Chuns. Hollow and steep lefts on winter swells works from chest high to double overhead. Rocky reef and strong currents make this a spot for experienced surfers.

This property is also located near Chuns Reef. A right and left reef break that varies depending on the swell. On a solid winter swell the rides can be long, fast and hollow. During smaller swells this can be a fun spot for surfers of varying experience levels with an inside section great for beginners and also fun rampy sections for experienced surfers. Best from knee high to overhead.

This property is also located near Laniakea. Great for shortboards, longboards, and bodyboards. Works from knee high to triple overhead and like all of the North Shore is a winter break. Can break top to bottom and have long right walls. A primo winter spot.
