Hawaiian Idyll!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with his sister, my adult niece and her 18 year old son spent a week in this incredible property for a (much too short) week. Just a short, couple mile drive up a bluff from the main highway, it's a private world away from the cheek by jowl beach homes. The grounds are breathtaking, filled with lush, tropical plants and trees, and a wonderfully large grass area between the house and pool. The pool looks like it belongs in a high end resort, with the incredible waterfall feature you can turn on while you are down there! We spent many hours down there enjoying both it and the tiki bar/BBQ area. The house was super comfortable and very clean. We let my niece and her son have the master bedroom and loft area and took the downstairs makai side bedroom, which has stunning views of the ocean and a slider to walk right out onto the wrap around lanai. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to do most of the cooking there and Foodland is just at the bottom of the bluff (though hitting Costco in Honolulu before driving up is advisable). Every aspect of our stay from the owner Gary to the ease of communication with the on island manager Ellyn was smooth and easy. We can't wait to return!

Loved every minute!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two weeks and loved the house and the grounds. It was sooo lush and beautiful. If you visit Hawaii, this property is the way to go. It is not only decorated Hawaiian style, but with all the comforts of a modern house. The pool was a world of its own. You truly felt like you were in a tropical oasis. Our next trip to Oahu will be back to this Pupukea Estate. Mahalo Jewel

Fabulous home, great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in April, we were 2 families with younger kids (ages 8-10), we had plenty of space, we loved the pool area! The house has everything you need, the bedrooms are very spacious, 2 full bathrooms, and a kitchen that has just about everything. You are a short drive to some of the coolest surf towns with friendly people, cool beaches, the best shaved ice in Hawaii etc. We took a surf lesson at the North Shore surf shop, all 4 kids consistently got up on their boards (ages 8, 8, 10 and 10). The instructors were some of the best surfers in the world. We also took a helicopter ride around the island from turtle bay, it was super cool. We hope the plan our trip back to this home in 2017.

Awesome house

  • 5 of 5

The house and the pool were amazing.

The views of the ocean are great, you can hear the waves below when they are crashing.

There are many things to in the area, great restaurants either down the hill or just a 10 minute ride away.

Gary made us feel very welcome and was great to work with.

Great vacation for our family.

Hawaii Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay on the North Shore. The accommodations at the house met our expectation, was comfortable and practical. The best part of the the property is the pool area and private setting. We plan to make this an annual event and return again next year. The Sunset Beach area was convenient, scenic and enjoyable! No negative surprises. Gary the owner and Ellen the caretaker are the real deal.

Garden of Eden

  • 5 of 5

Just spent 7 fabulous days in Oahu with the family. Can't possibly say enough about what a perfect property and location this was! We love the North Shore and this spot gave us everything we could possibly want. Only minutes from our favorite beach at Waimea Bay, but also secluded and private when you wanted to "get away from it all". We took our 5 teenagers with us and never had reason to turn on a TV. They spent all of their time around the beautiful pool and hot tub when we were at the house. The owner has a helpful binder of places to go and things to do in the area which we really liked as well. Have already recommended this home to a few friends that I know are thinking about a Hawaiian vacation.
