|Minimum Stay||5 - 7 nights|
From the moment you enter the gates of Ho’oluana (‘to relax’ in Hawaiian), you will know you are in paradise. A private tropical backyard welcomes you to our home.
Beautiful ocean views from the main living areas & master bedroom await you. Our large oceanfront property is well off the highway providing a peaceful Hawaiian holiday- free from the road noise so many oceanfront North Shore homes experience. A large private grass lawn shaded by palm trees extends up to the seawall- providing an ideal location for barbecues as well as lawn games. Steps from the seawall lead to the water where you can swim & snorkel year round.
We are located in the quaint town of Hauula, on the Windward Coast of Oahu. Ho’oluana is a 35 mile scenic drive from the Honolulu Airport, Waikiki Beach & Pearl Harbor. The North Shore offers snorkeling, swimming, diving, fishing, windsurfing and, of course, surfing. The Polynesian Cultural Center is two miles away, Kualao Ranch & Turtle Bay Resort ten miles away.
My family wanted let you know how much we enjoyed our stay with our friends at your Kaipapau Loop Hauula house. What a perfect location. The view was gorgeous, snorkling amazing and sunrises breath taking. We even spotted some Whales and Seals The landscaping was well kept and really added to the beauty of the house as well as the experience. Our teenage Boys found an adventure everyday. Yesterday on our way back to the airport we stopped in to see Pearl Harbor and the International Market. We were so glad that we didn't stay in Honolulu or Waikiki. Our stay was calm and relaxing. You truly have a great rental in Hau'ula. Thank you again.
We just returned home from a MOST WONDERFUL vacation in Hau’ula, Hi. It all started when we entered this beautiful home, with expansive ocean views. We couldn’t take our eyes off the ocean all week. We woke early to enjoy the sunrise, ate lunch outdoors, and napped in the hammock – all while viewing that incredible ocean. One day we even watched three sea turtles out searching of their lunch. We never wanted to leave, but on a few days we adventured out and enjoyed body surfing and beach combing at several of the local beaches.
The home was comfortable for all five of us – clean, well-kept and stocked with everything you could need. Plenty of coffee mugs and wine glasses, who could ask for more. Great location – private when you enter the gates, but convenient walking distance to market, drug store, and some local restaurants. It doesn’t get much better than this!!!
Just returned from a great vacation spent at this lovely home. Kids loved fishing, snorkeling and swimming in the tide pools right behind the sea wall. Plenty of beach toys too!
Kitchen was great for cooking and we did eat a few family meals outside in the backyard. The neighbors were equally friendly as well. As a matter of fact, we bough fresh sashimi from a neighbor up the street after walking back from the market. It was so good and fresh we walked back the same night and bought more.
You can walk to a local market, drugstore, liquor store and pizza shop in 5 minutes. That was really nice. All the employees were friendly to us and made us feel at home.
In a nutshell, if you're looking for a chill and relaxing spot with awesome views this is the place. You'll definitely experience true Hawaiian culture here. Not the fake plastic city stuff over in Waikiki.
BTW the local 7-11s have the best spam-sushi rolls.
Our stay was really wonderful. We pulled our chairs up to the sea wall and watched the sunrise with a lovely cup of coffee every morning. We snorkled right off the property steps at the waters edge and swam to the beach at the park down the road.
The location is great, giving you equal access to all parts of the island but is does some require driving.
The property is clean and the neighborhood is quiet and it was great to have a yard for our grandkids to run/crawl around, play frisbee, toss the baseball, etc.. (ages 5, 2 and 8 months). My husband loved laying in the hammock at sunset and reading and taking photos of the view to post on FB...
It's not fancy but it is comfortable, open and airy.
The owners are very responsive and I've already recommended this house to several co-workers!!
The owners were very easy to deal with. Our family of 8 stayed in 4 houses on 4 islands of Hawaii and the easiest rental to arrange was this one. We had our information early, the rental process was simple.
I would recommend this house for its location, its views, for getting way from the hustle and bustle of Honolulu.
The house has a well equipped kitchen. It is clean and well maintained. It is in a private neighborhood off the main highway. We loved the backyard and watching the crabs by the stairs.
I would suggest it is better suited for 6 people rather than 8 as the pullout sofa was not a great bed.
We are snorkelers and the north beaches offered great place to see a large variety of fish. We would suggest that three tables beach is the best for snorkeling or diving.
There are great shrimp trucks on the North Beach. Look up the one that Guy Fieri from Diners, Drive ins and dives recommends, they were the best.
We are very glad we stayed on the North Shore.
Two moms escaped their families and enjoyed absolute peace and beauty. I see there is a May special? We would be back in a heart beat! We enjoyed being part of the "country" side of the island. Even quieter than the official North Shore, yet equally beautiful. Since it was April, we enjoyed a light, misty rain until the sun came out and then returned to mist. It added to the experience. We never turned on a fan or a/c. The locals gave us an Aloha welcome. Absolutely felt at home. Very short drive to the Polynesian Culture Center, North Shore, Dole Pineapple plantation. We saw whales our first night! If you see the locals in the tide pools with their fishing sticks, they're looking for squid for their luau. I was happy to see a good mix of tropical fish in the tide pools right behind the house. Just a short walk to the almost private beach. I love being spoiled. Mountains behind the house were stunning as well. Thanks Deb!
We'll let me start by saying "amazing"!! Deb, this house is just what the doctor ordered. The rooms were very clean. directions were prefect to the house. Deb is a phone call away if needed .If you want to live like a local away from the tourist trap of Waikiki this home is the place .The people are friendly, the beaches are not crowded, the sound of the ocean at your bedroom door every night is unreal.There was five in our party we ate at home almost every night Food Land is right up the street.
This might sound crazy but I loved taking out the Garbage can to the street for pick up it made me feel like a local .... Deb remind everyone who wants to stay here "what year is it?" .....there it is . Your friend for life. I would stay here again in a heart beat.! P.s : Pape ole's is down the street and is REALLY good.
