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 Hauula

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 Punalu'u Beach Park across the street.

Wonderful location and accomodations!

  • 5 of 5

Our families reunited for the holidays and had a wonderful time!! We were very comfortable and the open floor plan was perfect for all ages. The kitchen is well stocked. The beach towels, toys, boogie boards, kayak and paddles, life jackets and location were perfect. The short walk to the beach was great. At the same time it was easy to explore the North Shore as well as many other nearby attractions. The abundance of food trucks as well as restaurants offer fresh seafood, fruits, and many styles of cooking. This home also offers air conditioning as well as ceiling fans so every room can be individually controlled. The lava rock garden walls offer privacy and security. There is a good security system as well as new, large bar-be-cue patio with outside shower for sandy feet. We loved our stay and only wished we had booked some of the tours , especially to the nearby Kualoa Ranch, where many scenes for Jurassic were shot. The scenery, with lush forests on the lava mountain slopes, is beautiful. The beautiful views of bays, beaches, turquoise waters and waves are unforgettable. Hauanuma Bay and many beaches are perfect for snorkeling. Waimea Valley is near, incredible verdant, and culturally rich. We must return! Thank you Jim for providing so much comfort and convenience with your wonderful home!

Great House

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our Oahu vacation with our extended family. Spacious and tastefully decorated, Punaluu house had plenty of room (and bathrooms!) for our immediate family of four (including two children) and both sets of grandparents. We loved taking the 2-minute walk across the street to the beach each morning to watch the sun rise. Jim, the owner, was kind and responsive to all our needs, and very generous as well. Thanks for taking such good care of us!

Plenty of room, and everything you'd need in a vacation home.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here! I'm glad we found a place with A/C. It was so nice to turn that on when we got back from our adventures during the day. The kitchen was stocked with pots, pans, dishes and appliances, everything we needed for meals. We enjoyed using the snorkeling gear, beach chair, sand toys and umbrella. There was plenty of room for our family of 8. There was even a crib for my baby and a high chair for my toddler. We were able to wash clothes and dishes there without a hassle, and there were plenty of towels to use.

The location was great! We didn't want to be in the big city, and we could drive anywhere we wanted to within an hour. Most beaches were less than 30 minutes, and several times we walked to the beach just up the road. It was only 10 minutes to the PCC.

We were able to contact the manager for any questions we had, and she checked in with us occasionally. If we bring our family to Oahu again, I would love to stay here.

Clean, quiet and spacious

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this house for our family vacation at the end of May. We had 10 people and a baby and everyone was comfortable and had plenty of room. There was a full size crib that had wheels and we rolled it into our room for our 9 month old to sleep near us. There was also a high chair which was handy during mealtime.

We had 3 vehicles (mini van, suburban, and small suv) and we were able to park all of them On the property. The house is about an hour away from Waikiki which we liked because Waikiki is so crowded and parking is such a hassle, so it was nice to leave the ‘city’ and come home to a quiet neighborhood.

The living room and kitchen area are huge and all 10 of us were able to sit down and visit together when we weren’t out and about.

It was also so nice to be able to do laundry while on our trip. There was a dishwasher so I could wash our baby’s bottles every night.

We are so happy with our stay at this house. It is a great value! Next time we go back to Oahu we will definitely try to stay in this house again.
