About Jim Franklin

I have lived in Hawaii for about 20 years now. I own a small business: www.sunshinearts.net

I purchased this home to live in but it's just too big for me! I decided to use as a vacation rental and have had great success as you can see from my reviews.

These days I live 1/2 time in the Philippines with my beautiful wife and 2 new babies! I plan to bring them to Hawaii eventually and live in the house...but for now I am sticking with the vacation rental biz....

Jim Franklin purchased this house in 2006

Why Jim Franklin chose Hauula

Close to the beach with 'deeded beach access' and very roomy!

What makes this house unique

Plenty of room for a large family and easy access to the beach.

We were having a family reunion/birthday party on Oahu and rented this house and couldn't have been more pleased with our choice. Don't let the exterior fool you. It doesn't look like much when you pull on to the property, but once you open the doors - WOW! It's beautifully furnished and decorated, yet felt like I was walking into a family member's home instead of a rental. VERY comfortable and welcoming. The kitchen is perfect for entertaining. Beds were comfy and lots of extra pillows, blankets and floor mattresses for extra guests - the ones who loved the house and just couldn't leave!

Fo da locals - not too much outdoor party area, but get da beach park across da street fo dat!

Mahalo Jim for opening your home to our ohana! We'll be calling you!!

Beautiful, spacious home!

  • of 5
We just returned from our trip to Hau'ula, Oahu and want to go back already. The house was perfect for our 2 families, total of 5 adults, 2 teenagers, and 3 smaller children. Everything was provided in the home, minus food. We were able to stock up at Costco on our way from the airport and there were a couple grocery stores near the house if we needed anything. It's easy to get to, and the beach is a short walk away. The beach is great for swimming and snorkeling, even for our small children. There are plenty of water toys, snorkeling gear, floaties for kids, and a 2 man kayak at the house which was great! Willow was great in answering any questions we had about the house (there weren't many). You will probably need to rent a car as it is an hour drive away from the airport and Waikiki. We were glad to have chosen to stay on the North Shore, away from the city. This home allowed us the luxury of a quiet, relaxed vacation with the option to drive around the island and see all of what Oahu has to offer. The food trucks along Kamehameha hwy are #1 if you're out exploring and get hungry. I can't say enough good things about this house and our trip. My youngest son cried for 20 minutes when it was time to leave. Thank you so much for making our trip amazing! I'm sharing a photo of the sunrise taken from the beach..just beautiful!

Great House!

I stayed at this house with my friend and her Girl Scout troop in June of 2014. It is a beautiful home with all the conveniences of your own home. Just across the street from the gorgeous ocean. I plan on taking my family next year.

Beautiful Hawaii

  • 4 of 5
We had an amazing time in Oahu...the house was perfect, very spacious and the location was great. The house was well stocked and we enjoyed our welcoming basket. We loved the beach being right across the street and we enjoyed using the kayak. Our family of 10 would highly recommend this house to anyone. Thank you very much Jim and willow for sharing your home with us.
Hopefully we will be back again some day.
Take care and Thank you !

Perfect! Perfect! Perfect!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
This house made our vacation the best! It was clean and spacious. We didn't need to buy anything for snorkelling,it's all there even swim shoes in a size thirteen! We took Willows advice and stopped at Costco before leaving Honolulu but if you forget anything there is a nice market just down the road. There was a little gecko in the house,maybe we are weird but we had the best time finding him whenever we came back to the house.We are from Alaska so the air conditioner in every room was a big plus.We are already planning to come back in two years, but this time we are staying two weeks!! This is the perfect house and it has a wonderful owner and manager. Thank you so much for being the best part of our vacation!!!

This Place Sweats the Small Stuff - and It Makes a Huge Difference

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for 1 week at this property in mid April 2013. It was a huge place for our small family of four, but we very much enjoyed the ample space.

The other reviews are apt in their descriptions: the outside is non-descript and a bit deceiving: the inside is much bigger than it would seem from the exterior, and though nothing is fancy, it's definitely warm.

We arrived famished and late at night and were delighted with the welcome bag of local popcorn, a fresh pineapple, some nuts and some coffee beans. The book shelves were stacked with (current) Oahu guide books, restaurant reviews, maps, and all kinds of fiction and movies -- hugely fantastic to have. The pantry had everything from olive oil to pancake mix and all kinds of spices, and the fridge was stocked with lemon juice and sauces -- a benefit to owning a very popular rental house. We mentioned we had a baby when we booked and asked if they had a crib. They did- and it was not only accessible but totally set up with blankets and sheets when we arrived -- wonderful.

You don't think much about snorkel gear and stocked beach towels when booking a family vacation - at least we didn't - but the availability of all these things made a huge difference. There was even an extra new swim diaper in the bathroom, and a new bag of elastics. There was detergent in the washing machine area so we could wash our sandy bathing suits. We didn't have think about little details on anything, and it made a huge difference to us, giving us time just to enjoy each other.

The only cons: not too much within driving distance except for the beach. The nearest 7 11 is not within walking distance and there's not any real town nearby. A rental car is a requirement. This home is not in a touristy area, which we liked but some might not.

But we weren't there for the slurpees, and the beach is surprisingly quiet and very beautiful immediately across the street, and stretches for quite a ways. Chinaman's Hat and the North Shore are all beautifully accessible little jaunts.

We'd come again for sure. Thanks, Willow and Jim.
