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.

Special note for Otilani, very gentil and nice.
When my vacation was over in this vacation home I wished more than anything I could stay here forever. The peace of the water and waves rolling in at the front of the house could not compare to any other place on earth. The house provided everything we needed and was very clean. We were able to see many sights in the area every day without the crowds and traffic. I hope I will get back there very soon.
We spent a week here in early November 2012. My husband and I had the downstairs and my sister and her husband had the upstairs. It was a beautiful place to stay the sunrises were breathtaking. The owners were so nice and made everything easy for us. I hope some day to be able to come and stay again. We had plenty of room and everything we could need was provided for us. The views from the upstairs balcony were unbelievable so very beautiful. I would recommend grabbing this rental if it is available when you are planning your visit to Hawaii.
1) The sandy beach is right outside your window. We were able to watch a three-year old playing in the sand from the living room, while allowing us to have an infant napping in a bedroom.
2) The area is away from the crowds. A lot of the time we felt we had the beach all to ourselves.
3) Upgraded kitchen, bathroom and floors are nice. There’s a private patio area which was also nice.
The sofas were terrible. I had read a prior review on another website where the man commented that the two couches should have been thrown out. I was hoping that the management had listened to this man's review by the time we checked in. Unfortunately, we, too, were stuck with the same shabby couches. The couch cushions have absolutely no shape to them anymore. The couches are like those in a students' dorm room or maybe a $39 hotel. There is a slipcover on them which slides off every time anyone sits on the couch. With 6 of us, the slipcover is always falling off. I did not expect to spend precious vacation time fixing two couch slipcovers 10 times a day, not to mention constantly seeing the dirty old couch underneath. The rest of the house has many quality elements but the couches do not live up to the establishment’s motto of "quality and affordable". From the wonderful pictures, I expected myself to be sitting on the couch and looking out onto the ocean. But since we moved in, I sat on the patio plastic chairs or went to the bedroom to sit on the bed, avoiding the couch overall. The sofas are so old and formless, we know it
couldn't possibly be that clean. I can't say the shoddiness of the couches ruined our vacation, but it greatly detracted from our experience at the house.
I did write the manager contact in their handbook, who replied promptly, telling me that he no longer worked there and that he had copied my e-mail to the current manager. I did not get a reply from the current manager. The former manager was cordial, but basically said that we were getting a great deal for being right on the beach. I do think we got a good deal for a beach front. But if we had known we'd be sitting on such shoddy sofas, we would not have booked the place, no matter the rent.
FYI: The water right at the property is rocky. You have to walk a little ways to get to sandy bottom swimming.
