All our properties are located in the fishing town of Hauula on the North Shore of Oahu near the Polynesian Cultural Center, Turtle Bay, Kualoa Ranch, and many other wonderful Oahu attractions. We are approximately 1 hour from Honolulu International Airport; where the Ko’olau Mountains touch the Pacific Ocean. Although we are “away from it all” we do have the Hauula Kai shopping center a short walk/drive away which has a large grocery store and several restaurants.
Our rural community of single family homes, small shops, and quaint restaurants is very different from the high rise retail/ tourist centers of Waikiki & Ko’olina. With hiking trails and unspoiled beaches, we offer a glimpse of the Oahu of yesteryear with convenient access to the night life and modern pleasures of Honolulu & Waikiki.
If you want to escape the crowds and discover a quieter and more peaceful alternative to the hotel and resort scene then Hale Ko’olau is perfect for you. Although our rentals are entirely self-catering we do have someone available on-site every day from 10am to 6pm to answer questions, give suggestions on where to go and what to do, or to just talk story.
We are happy to provide our guests with access to amenities such as high quality, professional grade snorkel equipment, ocean kayaks, beach & picnic equipment, and more for a nominal service fee.

Our HUGE 5 bd/3 ba beach house on the North Shore of Oahu. This 3000 sf home can easily accommodate large families or groups. 2 living areas, 2 kitchens, 2 parking spaces. Enjoy your covered lanais only 20 feet from beach. Parking + wi-fi included.
A group of 8 of us rented the 5-bedroom, 2-story house at this property from 8/11/2012 - 8/18/2012 for 5 days of vacation and 2 days for a wedding at Turtle Bay. I must say for my first trip to Hawaii, this group of rental homes is exactly where you want to stay if you want to be detached from any city living. The windward coast is beautiful and mainly un-touched by development. There is a local grocery store 1/8 mile away that has most of what you need and a higher end one about 5 miles to the north. The staff was extremely accomidating and most of all, knew how to just let you be without any interuption (even though they are on-site 6-8 hours of the day). Two things you need to know about this place before you book are 1) the beach is sandy, but 10 feet into the water it becomes rocky so bring wet-socks. 2) when we stayed there, the house (only this house) did not have A/C installed anywhere. Our party was OK with this being from South Florida but it may be something you should ask the staff before-hand when booking. Our neighbors which were with our party did have A/C. The location is really the best draw to this rental. Pipeline and the beginning of the Northshore -heading south- is 20 min away. Turtle Bay is 15 minutes away. The fish taco place within walking distance is worth every penny and if you go, ask for a drink they make there called Horchate (rice milkshake but not frozen). These are not high-end rentals but they come very close and provide all kitchen appliances and watersport rentals you will need. If you are looking for a higher-end rental, the owner of the homes just released their own home for rental which is 3 properties to the south and after a quick tour of it, I was awed, absolutely incredible. If I were to be in that area again, I would call them first to see if it was available before calling anyone else. Thanks to the staff for being professional and accomidating to such a large group's needs. The advice you provided on all things was extremely helpful as well. Mahalo!
