The home was originally constructed as the Laniakea Train Station in the late 1800s. Because of its history, it is built much closer to the ocean than current regulations allow. Its unique position as a point home on the edge of Chun's Reef Beach means there are neighbors on only one side. We have raised the home above the winter surf on large cement pillars, added wide wrap around lanais, and recently added a beachfront hot tub for the exclusive use of our guests. We rent the estate as three separate units: Deluxe Ocean Sunset (2 bedroom, sleeps 6, elevated lanai, expansive views), Oceanfront Bamboo Studio (Sleeps 4, shaded oceanfront lanai, steps to the beach) and Detached Garden Cottage (1 bedroom, very private, outdoor garden lounge area). ---------------------- Beach toys are provided free! ----------------------
Rent the entire home at a discounted rate. Whole home rental includes all units featured on this page.
The upstairs of the home was the main building for the train station. It has a large living area and generous kitchen, single private bathroom, master bedroom and open den with additional double bed. There is a wrap around lanai with outdoor dining area. The kitchen, living area and lanai enjoy expansive views of the ocean and the beach. The kitchen has a full size refrigerator, dishwasher and microwave oven. The upstairs master bedroom has two windows facing the road, and air conditioning.
The oceanfront bamboo ocean studio is cut into the side of the hill, under the house. It is surrounded on three sides by rocks, and very private. On the northern side, glass sliding doors offer an expansive ocean view, and open onto a large covered patio (lanai), just steps from the beach. The covered lanai is roughly 300sq ft, with an additional 250sq ft of uncovered patio area. There is a hammock and gas BBQ on the lanai, a coffee table, small dining table and chairs. Nearby, a private gated walkway leads to the beach. The hot water yard shower is great to rinse off after swimming.
The garden pond cottage began it's existence as the smoke house for the Laniakea train station. Pineapple and sugarcane workers set the train station alight while cooking their BBQ lunch, around the turn of the century. They decided that it was better to make fire in a separate structure! Today this is a detached cottage next to the rock wall and highway. It still has the original BBQ in the closet, and the original train station bathroom.
