The Pukana La is a completely remodeled (2007) and updated 'Hawaiian style' cottage circa 1930s with a dramatic 'wall of windows' in the main living area overlooking the ocean and Hauula Bay. Pukana La is a fully air conditioned and spacious two bedroom, one bath duplex home with porcelain tile floors throughout. The Pukana La features a remodeled (2007) complete, modern and open kitchen with maple cabinets, granite counter tops, sealed top stove/range, dishwasher, built-in microwave, fridge, and all the cooking utensils you need to prepare complete meals. The kitchen opens to the living area with a large breakfast bar/nook and enjoys direct ocean views.

The living area is richly decorated with warm tropical and plantation style furniture and also has wrap-around breath-taking ocean views. There is a queen and a twin size futon, both with 8” mattresses, in the living room. In the dining room area the original red wood beams have been exposed and creative lighting illuminates the ceiling. The master suite has tranquil garden views and features a Sealy posturepedic pillow top queen size bed. The second bedroom also has a queen-size Sealy posturepedic pillow top bed and heavy teak and tropical furniture for an elegant feel. Both bedrooms have individually controlled air conditioning and tropical ceiling fans although they are rarely needed as this home enjoys cool tropical breezes year around. There is a separately controlled air conditioner and tropical ceiling fans in the living area as well.

Enjoy relaxing on our direct beachfront yards which overlook the blue Pacific Ocean. There is plenty of area for sunbathing on the beach or on our grassy beachside yards. Watch spectacular sunrises while soaking in one of our four hot tubs, stroll down the beach to the Hauula beach park and coral preserve for some great snorkeling and swimming or take our ocean kayaks out for some adventure. Close by are world famous North Shore attractions such as the Hauula hiking trails & preserve, Polynesian Cultural Center, Turtle Bay Resort and Golf, Brigham Young University, Sunset Beach, Waimea Bay, Kualoa Ranch and the last unspoiled 'Hawaiian' style towns on Oahu. Enjoy your Hawaii vacation directly on the beach with in our North Shore beachfront vacation homes.

All our properties are located in the fishing town of Hauula on the North Shore of Oahu near the Polynesian Cultural Center, Turtle Bay, Kualoa Ranch, and many other wonderful Oahu attractions. We are approximately 1 hour from Honolulu International Airport; where the Ko’olau Mountains touch the Pacific Ocean. Although we are “away from it all” we do have the Hauula Kai shopping center a short walk/drive away which has a large grocery store and several restaurants.

Our rural community of single family homes, small shops, and quaint restaurants is very different from the high rise retail/ tourist centers of Waikiki and Ko’olina. With hiking trails and unspoiled beaches, we offer a glimpse of the Oahu of yesteryear with convenient access to the night life and modern pleasures of Honolulu & Waikiki.

If you want to escape the crowds and discover a quieter and more peaceful alternative to the hotel and resort scene then Hale Ko’olau is perfect for you. Although our rentals are entirely self-catering we do have someone available on-site every day from 10am to 6pm to answer questions, give suggestions on where to go and what to do, or to just talk story.

We are happy to provide our guests with access to amenities such as high quality, professional grade snorkel equipment, ocean kayaks, beach and picnic equipment, and more for a nominal service fee. For more information please call us anytime at our toll free number or visit our direct website at halekoolau.com.

Highly recommend.

Mahalo to Dave, Otilani, Jeff and staff for ensuring a five star vacation at Pukana La Sunrise. What's there not to like? We woke up every morning to the sights and sounds of the ocean, we went hiking on nearby trails, and we had a hot tub one night in the pouring rain. It was paradise. The days were sunny and full of promise, and we always looked forward to returning to our little beach house. We were fortunate to be there when the coconuts on the trees were being picked, so we had fresh coconut and coconut water. We hope to return again real soon.

Wow, what a fantastic week we had! We're so glad we found this place, it was the perfect location for us. It was an easy drive farther up the sunny north shore, but still close enough to the east & south to explore Sea Life Park, Waikiki, and Pearl Harbor. We saw an amazing range of geography and botany on these drives!
But most of all, it was wonderful to have a calm place to return to. The cottage was sized perfectly for our family of 4, and it was amazing to be right on the beach. All the facilities were there, and everything was well-maintained. We would definitely return!!

We had a wonderful time staying in Hauula. Right on the beach, gentle waves soothing at your doorstep, spectacular sunrise, comfortable and tasteful decor, caring care-keepers. Far away from the commercial Hawaii, you will experience the real Oahu, yet close to everything. We will be back!
