We don’t even want to think about how much this stunning North Shore property cost back in the 1950s when it was purchased by the family who developed it into a house/guest house hybrid.
Some of the six buildings included in the 1.5-acre shorefront property were once part of the old Hale‘iwa Hotel.
Located at 59-575-1 Ke Iki Road on the North Shore, Ke Iki Beach Bungalows overlooks a stretch of beach known around the world for its giant swells. Herb and Helen Talbott designed the property in 1952 both as a family home and a destination for travelers back before the internet made that a common occurrence.
Ke Iki Beach Bungalows sits above the shoreline, with a mix of studio, one-, two-, and three- bedroom units. It is zoned R-5 for residential use and and retains transient vacation rental licenses on four of the 12 units. Two buildings from the old Hale‘iwa Hotel were towed in and lined up along the Ke Iki beachfront where they still sit today. The Hale‘iwa Hotel was built in 1889 and acted as an Officers Club during World War II. The Talbotts purchased the two cedar duplexes shortly before the hotel was razed.
