The Ehu Kai is direct beachfront and is completely air conditioned. This is a spacious (500+ sf living area) duplex studio, one bath rental with ceramic tile floors throughout. The Ehu Kai Kitchen & Bath were both remodeled early November 2006. The open kitc...hen has maple cabinetry and granite countertops, a full size sealed-top stove/range, built-in microwave, full size fridge, and all the cooking utensils you need to prepare complete meals. The kitchen opens to the living area with a convenient breakfast bar/nook. The living area is richly decorated with warm tropical & plantation style furniture and enjoys direct ocean views. There is a queen size futon with 8” mattress and teak dining table in the living area. The Ehu Kai has a queen size bed just 20 feet away from the surf. This rental enjoys cool tropical breezes year around, however there is a ceiling fan in addition to air conditioning.
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 & 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 and 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.

Left on 04/21/2013 for a stay in April 2013 | Rod S.
We have stayed with Hale Koolau group 2 times, once in October 2012 and again in april 2013. On both occasions had a great time. We did not stay in the Ehu Kai but in 2 other condos on the property. The property is well maintained and all equipment was in working order. We did not have a leaky roof or a/Carol problem at all, and it did rain on us 1 day. Both of the condos we rent had decent size Tv's and plenty of cable channels. On the latest visit one of the many hot tubs was out of order, but other were nearby. The Bbq's are maintained and pretty much ash free. We had a blender problem which was replaced in minutes. Jeff was always willing to give advice on where to eat, and snorkel.
Our condos were clean and comfortable. The 2 main problems I ever had was finding which light switch went to which light, and the shrubs in the front of the complex need to be trimmed back as it is hard to see when trying to pull out on the highway.
I will be back and I will continue to stay at this beautiful spot until I get my own Hawaiian Condo/home. Thank you Hale Koolua family !!
