Overview

Pupukea House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 bath, sleeps 4-6

Located 600 feet above the majestic Pacific Ocean, this island hideaway on the north shore of Oahu is private, cool and quiet. Placed at the end of a small road, the lush tropical setting is one acre of mature banana, avocado, and fruit trees set among gorgeous flowers and a beautiful yard. The new rock wall pool and heated spa has a soothing waterfall built in and a view of the ocean. Enjoy a glass of wine at day's end while soaking away. Completely different than the concrete towers of Waikiki, yet close enough to be accessible, the north shore of Oahu is the perfect place to enjoy Hawaii.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed

great way to get away

  • 5 of 5

We had a short and enjoyable stay at this beautiful property. We were immediately greeted by the owner with smiles and suggestions on what to see and do on the north shore. First off the house is kept spotless and is very comfortable. The backyard of the property is an oasis in itself. I stayed here with my girlfriend and we enjoyed soaking up the sun and relaxing in the hot tub. There is a beach close by and many others are just a short drive away. We recommend going to watch the sunset at the beach it's stunning. Great private property you will not regret staying here. We look forward to our next stay in the north shore and booking this property again.

A Terrific North Shore Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our circumstances were not routine. We visited several properties in May 2014 looking for a winter rental. I was retiring, and Gale wanted to promptly start doing different things before we fell into a retirement rut doing more of the same thing. We lived here for about 6 weeks. We would’ve rented for the whole three months, but even in May others had already booked. Quiet, secure, very clean, and even private garage parking. Large, covered patio, big family room. Patio has a great view of the night sky - use night sky websites to spot planets and other formations. Because we were in practical terms living here vice vacationing, Gale prepared nearly all evening meals, and it was a treat to walk out on the lawn and pick a fresh tangerine for a snack. Wifi and Direct TV, etc., all worked, and we had no problem plugging in our Apple TV gadget. Pool and hot tub were clean and well maintained The outside shower with hot water and half bath was great for rinsing off sand. The local Foodland is well stocked, especially when you don’t need Costco sized stuff. We went to Mass at the mission church overlooking Wiamea Bay, good music and plenty of fellow visitors. We enjoyed our stay, and Carolyn is a delight to work with.

Wonderful, Relaxing and Gorgeous

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay here. I would highly recommend this place to anyone, a quiet paradise, (if you can ignore the roosters at night. We had fun on this). The place is clean and the owner is wonderful to work with. Would go again for sure.

Thanks Carolyn,

The Smiths

Tranquil, great location, awesome pool

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at this house. We thought we wanted something on the beach, but the pool and jacuzzi and grounds of this house were so fun and beautiful that we were smitten. Our kids absolutely loved swimming in the pool. The location is amazing. Just down the hill is Sharks Cove (5 min), where we had great snorkelling. We had fun hiking Waimea Valley (10 min away), going to Waimea Beach and Haleiwa (15 min). A great store, Foodland, and Starbuck's is also just at the bottom of the hill so that was also very convenient to get a picnic lunch on our way out or breakfast supplies.

The owner greeted us warmly and gave us some fruit from her property. She was so relaxed about checking in and out times, which was really appreciated.

The house was clean and well maintained and the pictures did it justice. The bonus was that the owner was just so nice and helpful. We would like to stay here again on our next visit and would highly recommend this rental property!

WOW....How Great was this!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on Friday 4/22/11 and greeted by the owner who walked us around the property and showed us how to use the pool and hot tub. We had the use of a garage, two BBQ pits (Charcoal and Gas), Satellite TV, wireless internet and a fully furnished 2 bed house (including washer/dryer, bath/beach towels and all kitchen utilities). The road leading to the house starts at "sharks cove" (5 min drive), Waimea Valley (10 min drive), Dole Plantation (20 min drive), Pearl Harbor/Swap Meet (40 min drive), Waikiki beach (50 min drive). All drive times are approximate. For the golfer this house is (15 min drive) from Turtle Bay, were you can play the Fazio course after 3:05 for $15 per person ($5 for juniors). The house, owner, price and location are beyond anything you can show/tell with words. My family had a great stay and being able to spread out in a two bed house instead of a hotel room was great! We will stay here again if the opportunity presents itself.

A Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Carolyn,

Thank you so much for allowing our family to stay in your beautiful home. After spending the day in Waikiki, Pearl Harbor, or just driving the island, your home was the perfect place to come back to. It was just the right size for our family of 4. The kids enjoyed the pool in the backyard while my husband & I enjoyed the peacefulness. We especially loved the night sky, with the stars so close. Also waking up & hearing the roosters! The drive from Honolulu to your home was an enjoyable one, while watching the pineapple fields pass by. We loved the view of the ocean while driving up to your house. Sunset Beach was definately the best place to watch the sunset!! I hope this review helps those of you thinking to stay at Carolyn's home. I would definately recommend to anyone who is planning to stay on Oahu & is looking to stay on the North Shore!!
