Rare opportunity to own a very-unique property located less than a ¼ mile (5 min. walk) to world-famous Tunnels (Makua) Beach with crystal clear water protected by an outer and inner reef just off the golden sandy beach with Bali Hai in the background. The charming solid cedar-walled home is private and has a large lanai with a 6ft soaking tub (or enjoy the outdoor shower) with spectacular views of Pohakukane Mountain range plus Manoa waterfall views. The back of the property boarders 4,000-acre conservation land. This remodeled 3 bd, 2 bath traditional Hawaiian style cottage has been a legal vacation rental for over 34 years and typically books about a year in advance with approx. 92% occupancy rate and over 125 5-star reviews during last 8 years. Newly restricted no parking throughout the area makes it almost impossible to enjoy the north shore beaches without Ha’ena lodging accommodations.
The front home was built in 2014 as a 1580sf 2 Bd, 2 Ba “owner’s retreat” with Tiki Bar, wine coolers, kegerator, T&G interior cedar walls, large storage “attic” with library ladder. Enjoy the 6ft soaking tub on the master bedroom lanai, plus an outdoor shower at entryway. Two washers and dryers (vac rental has washer & dryer also). The large open floor plan with “inside lanai effect” is spacious and tranquil. Both homes have simulated hand-scraped wood ceramic tile with zero maintenance and hand-hammered copper sinks (copper is a natural antibacterial material).
The property maintains privacy with a 6 ft lava rock wall and automatic gate. The lush tropical landscaping includes a grass-block paver driveway. The property is located in a non-flood zone.
The homes are 0.5 miles from Ha’ena Beach Park and 1.5 miles from Ke’e Beach at “the end of the road” and the Kalalau trailhead for the Na’Pali Coast hike.
The quaint surf town of Hanalei and Hanalei Bay are just 5 miles away with fantastic restaurants, shopping, and farmer’s markets.
