Hauula House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 8-10

Beautiful family friendly home just across the street from a white sand beach that is walkable for a mile, kayak friendly, and swimmable. The great room, dining areas, and kitchen are all open for large family gatherings and dinners.

All the bedrooms have A/C, TV's, queen beds. The master suite has a king bed, personal kitchenette, and a large bathroom. There is a second master bedroom w/ private bath. A third bathroom in the hallway services the other 2 bedrooms and the family room.

Cool, comfortable, and furnished nicely. Lots of great art too.

Beach toys, kayak, etc...

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.

NO KA OI (Is the best)

  • 5 of 5

We were having a family reunion/birthday party on Oahu and rented this house and couldn't have been more pleased with our choice. Don't let the exterior fool you. It doesn't look like much when you pull on to the property, but once you open the doors - WOW! It's beautifully furnished and decorated, yet felt like I was walking into a family member's home instead of a rental. VERY comfortable and welcoming. The kitchen is perfect for entertaining. Beds were comfy and lots of extra pillows, blankets and floor mattresses for extra guests - the ones who loved the house and just couldn't leave!

Fo da locals - not too much outdoor party area, but get da beach park across da street fo dat!

Mahalo Jim for opening your home to our ohana! We'll be calling you!!

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.

Great home

  • 5 of 5

Out stay here at the end of July was fantastic. The home was so comfortable and accommodating. The home suited all our needs from kitchen, laundry, water toys, and towels. Willow and Jim were awesome!! Thank you Willow for checking up on us after thunderstorm Darby. I would return to this home again.

This property was absolutely amazing. You are very close to the beach literally less than 5 minutes away. This house is so roomy it is great for big families, plenty of room. We will never stay in Waikiki again after staying here. I would highly recommend this house to anyone.

Great house, lots of space, close to the beach

  • 4 of 5

My family and I had a great time in this house. There were 8 of us and plenty of room for everyone. There is one HUGE room with its own bathroom and a little room where they had a crib for us to use which worked out perfect. There are 3 other rooms with queen size beds. The Kitchen had everything we needed and was pretty big. There was beach gear which we really enjoyed to use. We left a few more san toys for future kids to use so I hope they enjoy them. Willow was very helpful and was there when I had questions. The beach is a few feet away with easy access and was perfect for the kids to play in. The AC was great to have because we had 2-3 night where it would have been too hot to sleep in so we were glad that was part of the house.

The house was pretty clean, the only thing we had to do was wash all the towels and some of the bedding because they had a funky smell ( I guess they didn't dry completely and got the funky smell of being damp and put away). We had a few ants but making sure we didn't leave anything out took care of that.

I would recommend this house to anyone and would stay here again. It was far from airport BUT it was so nice to be away from all the people and main city. We bought food at Costco and took that to the house and used the local grocery store for the things we forgot. If you drive about 5 miles to the left of the house you will find the little grocery store and a drug store, keep going maybe another 10 minutes and they have a bigger grocery store.

Family vacation in Hawaii

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Jim's house on Oahu. There were 8 of us and the house was more than adequate. Beach right across the street. It is out of the Honolulu rush, yet close enough to easily get to other sights. We enjoyed our stay there very much. Jim was easy to work with in renting the house and Willow, his manager was very informative and helpful. Don't know if or when I'll make it back to Hawaii. but I would be happy to deal with them again.
