Enjoy the peace and serenity of a true tropical rainforest. Situated at the end of a small quiet street, this secluded guest house has unobstructed panoramic 180° views of Hawaii's magnificent Koolau Mountains (Pali). These mountains were featured in the original movie Jurassic Park. This majestic backdrop often has over a dozen waterfalls dropping down the 3000 foot vertical face. (The waterfalls run after about one hour of steady rain.) This one acre property is located in Ahuimanu, near Valley of the Temples but is actually inside the East boundary of the Waiahole Forest Reserve and offers spectacular mountain, rainbow and waterfall views. Don't worry, just because it is located in a tropical rainforest setting, this location gets plenty of sun too.
Check out one of Hawaii's best guidebooks; 'DRIVING AND DISCOVERING HAWAII-OAHU' In this book he writes about our little street. . .'Here, the homes are built practically touching the perpendicular face of the Pali. The striking effect that these 3000' giant, towering, sheer walls have - looming overhead and dispensing countless veils of tumbling waterfalls after a rain is quite literally dizzying. On Oahu, you probably cannot get any closer to the pali's behemoth cliff face than this, without a difficult hike.'
Let the sound of the year round stream constantly flowing through the property put you to sleep each night. Wake to the songs of Native Hawaiian Birds every morning and the sun glistening off the mountains. Experience the true sights and sounds of a tropical rain forest.
A truly secluded paradise for those who want to experience life in one of Hawaii's most beautiful places. Amazing but true... This vacation rental is located on a small public street, only three to four minutes (less than two miles) off the main highway. Centrally located on the island it is only 12 minutes away from famous Kualoa Beach Park (Chinaman's Hat) and Kualoa Ranch with horseback riding, ATV rides, movie tours and buffet lunches. Less than 30 minutes from Honolulu International Airport and Pearl Harbor, this is a vacation property that offers you close proximity to most all points on the island, but still has the peace and serenity of a true rainforest experience. Quite literally centrally located to most points of interest on the island it is a short 15-20 minute drive to Kailua's beautiful white beaches and the Mokulua Islands. 30 minutes up to the Polynesian Cultural Center for the day (a must see) or keep going and check out our world famous North Shore surf spots and big waves in the winter months. Less than 30 minutes out of Honolulu, this location gives you access to Waikiki nightlife if you want it and you can still wake up in paradise.
