About Jim Franklin TA 118-409-8304-01

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

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 TA 118-409-8304-01 purchased this house in 2006

Why Jim Franklin TA 118-409-8304-01 chose North Shore Oahu

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.

Over our expectation, perfect.

  • 5 of 5

Alot of space, we was 12 person and IT menas that that we had 2 on the floor. But that was not A problem since there was so much space. No problem to cock for all of us her. Clean house in good condition. I'm am sure that it's difficult to find better in this price level. No area to have smaller children outside, but that was not a problem for us. Owner and the people around him has been extremely helpful. Thanks!

Perfect house for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Jim's house for a family getaway during Thanksgiving week. Everything was perfect and there was plenty of space for all of us. The location was great - close to North shore fun but still not too far from Honolulu. We enjoyed the quite neighborhood and the beach right across the street. There were lots of toys for our 9 year old to play with (and the adults too), and everything we could need in the house for cooking, showers, etc. It was such a great trip, and we would definitely stay here again!

10X better than staying in a hotel!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Hawaii and this house made life so much easier. Jim met us upon arrival and showed us how to access everything and we knew he was just a phone call away if we had any problems. For big families like ours (10), the savings alone made it worth it. The house had everything we needed and lots of room to lounge about. It gave us room for everyone to have their own space and I guaranteed it cut down on the sibling arguing. We had beach access half a block from the house - it made for great sunrise and sunset walks. We were a little worried about the amount of traffic along the highway, but we barely noticed it. Getting in and out of the house was fine. It is located on North Shore where life is a lot more laid back than the other side of the island which we really appreciated. Being on North Shore did not deter us from doing anything on the other side of the island. The drive is about an hour to Honolulu/Waikiki (about 25 miles but speed limit is 35) which we made 3 or 4 times throughout the week for various activities. As we are from California, that was a blink of an eye. I can't sum it up better than my kids, "I'm so glad we're staying in a house instead of a hotel. It's so much better." Thank you Jim for your hospitality. We had a great time and will definitely recommend it to anyone headed to Oahu.
