Property Description

On a beautiful soft white sand beach. World class surfing, beach exploration and sunsets right from our back yard. Guests universally rave about the spectacular setting, convenient location and comfort of our fully equipped ocean front paradise.

The space

Step down from our grassy lawn to a luxurious soft sandy beach. Surfers, turtles and even whales and dolphins grace the waters while wedge-tailed shearwaters and crabs frolic just off our back yard. Enjoy our fully equipped kitchen or barbecue in the back yard while the sunset paints the waves and sand. Cruise on wifi, watch cable or DVDs, or curl up with a book from our library while sea serenades float in from over 2,000 miles of ocean.

Guest access

A master bedroom with a queen size bed and deluxe views. The second bedroom can be made up with either twin beds or as a king. The den/tv room has a queen size sofa bed. The second bathroom is in the garage, and is great when coming off the beach. The full sized washer and dryer are conveniently located right off of the den in the garage.

Interaction with guests

Guests will have complete privacy. There is never anyone else living on the fenced property. Host and housekeeper contact information is provided.

Other things to note

At Hale Moana we are witness to the impressive and fascinating interaction of land and sea. The shoreline may dramatically change from summer to winter, year to year. The tides, currents, waves and wind are constantly rearranging the beach, and sand levels will vary significantly and unpredictably over time. 

The North Shore is known world wide for its dramatic winter surf. Be aware that swimming in most places during big wave season is best left to experts and children should be closely supervised.

Best Hawaii Beach Vacation Home By Far!
5 out of 5
We have been lucky enough to enjoy Hale Moana twice and will return again. It is by far the best Hawaiian beach experience. The ocean is in your backyard! The view is unbelievable, with spectacular sunsets. You can enjoy the clean, sandy beach, or take it all in from one of the plentiful lawn chairs in the backyard or a comfy chair in the living room...the entire wall is glass windows and sliding doors so you don't miss anything! The sound of the ocean lulls you to sleep and greets you in the morning. In winter you can see whales breaching in the distance and surfers on the huge waves. The house is roomy and has all the amenities you need (kitchen appliances, dishes, utensils; washer and dryer; plenty of bath towels and beach towels; etc.). There is a grocery store nearby and plenty of good food trucks and restaurants. The quaint town of Haleiwa is also close by. The owner, Sandi, is very hospitable and accommodating. Whether you run around the island during the day or spend the day at the house, Hale Moana is the perfect place to call home.

Exceeded our expectations

Such a beautiful view and the whole back of the house opens up into paradise! The beds and pillows were cozy, the stars where bright, the surfers were so fun to watch. Clean house with EVERYTHING we needed for a fun girls weekend and 70th birthday celebration. My mother said it was the most beautiful place she has ever been. She cried when we arrived and cried when we departed. Would 100% recommend for a relaxing and laid back vacation. It was so relaxing that we only left the house once during our 3 day stay. It rained off and on for the first couple of days but that didn't stop us from sitting outside on the deck and still enjoying the view and beautiful and bold rainbows that came with it. If we ever come back to the North Shore, we will for sure be booking Hale Moana again. Sandra is an amazing host and always was an email away and very prompt at returning messages. We were greeted with a very nice bottle of wine and delicious Kona coffe. We seriously could not have picked a better place to spend our time. Mahalo

A gem in the north shore
5 out of 5

We had a wonderful time! The house is a mid-century gem that is a destination all its own. It sits on the oceanfront along a secluded and beautiful stretch of coastline. We saw a turtle and whales from the beach. 

The house is also well equipped for the vacationer. We made good use of the snorkeling gear and cooked most of our meals at the house and had all the dishes and items we needed. Everyone was sad to go. I hope we can visit again. Thank you, Sandi, for all your attention to detail and hospitality!

We've stayed at this home multiple times. It's our home away from home when we are lucky enough to reserve it. The home is warm and inviting, and the beach in front lovely. We can't wait to go back.

Absolutely Beautiful, Best Location in the North Shore

My husband and I celebrated our 30th anniversary at the Hale Moana. Sandra was great and there was nothing we needed as the house was well stocked. We purchased groceries from the local store and cooked breakfast, lunch and dinner (barbecued every night), and just enjoyed the view and privacy of the Hale Moana. I hired a local photography, Sabrina Zander Photography (excellent and well worth the money) on the beach and she even said this house was a perfect vacation home with the location and privacy. I would highly recommend this property and we will be back to visit.
