Ke Nui

  • North Shore, Oahu

Serene five-bedroom beachfront villa near Pipeline on North Shore Oahu’s famous seven-mile miracle.

Located along one of the most famous stretches of surf breaks on the planet, Ke Nui is a perfect place to stay to surf and explore the fabled North Shore. You can’t beat this location. The surf break Gas Chambers is at your doorstep, Rocky Point is 100 yards to the right, and the legendary Banzai Pipeline is 300 yards to the left.

Recently remodeled in 2018, Ke Nui is a beautiful five-bedroom home right on the beach with stunning views and direct beach access. The house is breezy, open, and modern, with plentiful natural light from the many windows and skylights. There is a fully-equipped kitchen, comfortable amenities, and three of the five bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms.

One of our favorite features is the brilliant luxury of checking the surf conditions from your own backyard – especially since that yard happens to be on some of the best waves in the world.

Whether you’re looking to experience the world-class surf or enjoy the postcard-worthy summer beaches, Ke Nui gives you easy access to the best of the North Shore.

Location

  • North Shore, Oahu

North Shore Oahu is home to the most celebrated group of world-class breaks in the world. Every winter when the swells start pumping, surfers from around the globe fly in to get a piece of the action and put their skills to the test. While the surf breaks in the area are predominantly for advanced/expert surfers only, there are a couple breaks suitable for intermediate surfers.

When you’re not surfing or hanging out on the beach, there are lots of other activities to keep you busy. From whale watching, skydiving, and snorkeling, to watching a surf competition, there’s never a lack of things to do in Oahu.

If you’re not familiar with the North Shore, it’s good to know that different seasons make for completely different ocean conditions. The winter has pumping waves, and a generally wild and unruly ocean, while the summer brings calm turquoise waters perfect for swimming and snorkeling (and kids!).

Getting There

Fly into Honolulu International Airport (HNL), and the drive to Ke Nui is about an hour drive (without traffic). We highly recommend renting a car for your stay.
