- The Captain's House -

Welcome to The Captain’s House, a historic home that sits on one of the most stunning beaches on the island! This newly renovated home has three bedrooms with a/c, a designer kitchen, and lots of outdoor areas for dining and lounging. A wall of windows runs the length of the home, affording endless ocean views and allowing soft sea breezes. The Captain's House has a covered lanai for outdoor dining, and the sun deck overlooking the beach is the perfect spot to watch the sun sink into the Pacific every evening. Other amenities include wi-fi, TV’s in every bedroom, privacy fence with gate, off street parking, washer and dryer, BBQ grill & outdoor shower. Home sleeps a maximum of 8 guests; please see below for a detailed description of bedrooms.

- The History -
This home was built by Captain McClay in the late 19th century. On a trip to Hawaii from the East Coast, the Captain used as ballast the lumber he would eventually re-purpose to build one of the North Shores first beach homes. He chose a protected beachfront area unrivaled in beauty to build upon. For generations it was home to the Captain’s descendants, and the current owners have been caring for the home since the 1960’s. For the first time in its history, the Captain’s House is now available to island visitors.

The home has been carefully restored and modern amenities added; including a renovated kitchen and a/c in every bedroom. In decorating the home, the owners kept all original furnishings that were custom to it. There are original vintage fixtures along with new, as to show the natural progression the home's age. There is a piece of furniture in the home representing every decade from 1920 on! The Captain’s House is filled with local art, including that of the Captain’s granddaughter, Emily Giese, a ceramicist whose work can still be seen in the kitchen and dining room table tile, and also in concrete work outside.

- The Beach -

Chun’s Beach is an absolute favorite among locals and those in the know, yet never crowded. The location is prime – the spot was chosen not only for its beauty, but also for the protection provided. Many homes advertise as being located at Chun’s beach, but The Captain’s house is one of only three that actually enjoys this privilege. The beach in front of the home is wide with soft sand. During calm weather the swimming and snorkeling are divine, and you will find sea turtles bobbing next to you in the water regularly. Close by surf breaks are Chun’s, Lani’s , Holton’s , Jocko’s and Leftovers. Waimea is a mile down the road, Sunset Beach just four miles away.

- The Neighborhood -

You’ll see why travelers return yearly to the North Shore once you experience the laid back beach lifestyle and endless Aloha. The activities nearby are endless, highlights include excellent hiking trails, snorkeling, stand up paddling, shark tours, zip–lining, yoga on the beach, golfing, spa services, and luau’s. The friendly town of Haleiwa is located just two miles down the road for grocery shopping, restaurants, and boutiques. The nearest waterfall is a mile away at Waimea Rainforest. The airport is 28 miles, Pearl Harbor 26 and Waikiki 36 miles.

    What a lovely spot to stay on the North Shore. The property has a truck load of character and is super clean and well maintained. The view is absolute magic! We will be back!

    Mark V from Nampa, ID recommends this vacation rental

    We had an amazing experience at the Captain's House. This beach house has amazing character, and was the perfect setting for my family. The home was extremely comfortable. You could not ask for better beach access, and the evening sunsets while sitting out on the deck were breath taking each and every evening. We will definitely consider this property for future stays.

    a guest from Honolulu, Hawaii recommends this vacation rental

    Photos do not do this special home justice. Every year our family rents a house on the North Shore, but we have never stayed in a home quite like this one before. The moment you drive through the gate you feel like you are going back a bit in time to Old Hawaii - tranquil and happy, so different from the atmosphere in Waikiki. We spent our days hanging out as a family, playing board games, eating long meals on the lanai, with the kids going in and out of the water until sunset. The beach is superb and was never crowded, but there is a lifeguard stand here so you feel as if you have your own personal lifeguard. The house was spotless and comfortable, a perfect combo of vintage and modern. Haleiwa is a 10 minute drive down the road for shopping, and is full of local boutiques and restaurants (the long line at Opal Thai is justified, so ono!). We did not want to leave, and will definitely be back again next year. Mahalo!
