Email for special rates during the holidays

Aloha and Welcome to our home. We are proud and happy to share it with others. If you have any questions or need special accomodations, please e-mail us at the link below.

Our home provides the right atmosphere to unwind and get away from it all. Whether you plan to spend your days relaxing on the lanai or sightseeing, our home in Pupukea is the perfect location.

The Master Bedroom is joined by a private bathroom that features a tiled double shower. The bedroom opens onto the lanai -- from there the view is ocean, trees, and sky. It's the perfect place to relax, and witness the best sunsets (or rainbows) the island provides.

Our loft room, away from the Master Bedroom, ensures privacy and space. Each room features a Deluxe Queen bed. A single bed "punea" is in the Den providing a comfortable spot to watch one of the many movies on our LCD TV.

Our open and airy living room is the perfect place to play games, catch up with family and remember the days events of your vacation.

A scenic 5-minute drive brings you to Waimea Bay & Valley, snorkling, and miles of white sand beaches.

We are 15 minutes to historic Hale'iwa town - with local shops and a variety of restaurants. For the golfers, Turtle Bay Golf and Tennis Resort is a short drive away. The Arnold Palmer and George Fazio Courses have been widely recognized as the best of all Hawaii golf courses.

The airport is only 45 minutes away and a trip to Waikiki can take less than an hour. We are close enough to enjoy what Oahu has to offer, but far enough away to be able to forget about city life.

Please e-mail for Holiday rates and Kamaaina specials.

Hard to leave after 2 weeks!

  • 4 of 5

We were lucky enough to have a 15 day vacation on the North Shore over Christmas. We're regular visitors to the North Shore and have stayed in several VRBO properties over the years.

This house is terrific. It is spacious with a very well stocked kitchen and lots of linens available. It's great to have all of the beach essentials as well-boogie boards, cooler, chairs, buckets, etc. and also a grill.

It's great to have a (very nice) washer/dryer, an outside shower, a few tv's and most importantly 2 nice bathrooms.

There are a few areas that could use some updating/fixing:

The wifi was spotty at best. It was a problem the entire 2 weeks.

There were no instructions regarding wifi, passwords, tv's/cable, trash. My kids were able to get tv on only one, but the others were fine with dvd movies (there is a large selection of movies!)

It is a bit musty smelling (the master bedroom especially) which we attributed to the humidity but it seems like maybe the friendly outside cat that roams the property might also live inside. There are candles all over the house, most are burned out however. That leads me to another problem that we encountered: lighting. There is almost no lighting except in the kitchen.

The biggest issue with the house is the steep driveway. It's very very steep, and then the walkway down to the house is just as step, and there are stepping stones but not steps. Thankfully we had a 4wd (which we did use) so it wasn't a giant ordeal.

Unfortunately it rained at the house every morning and most nights so it was a lot of mud for the entire time. It's not something that negatively affected us so much but if we'd had any issues at all (a baby, an elderly person) it would be very tough.

For us, the location is not ideal. We really love to be at the beach or at least in walking/biking distance. This house is in a very secluded area and walking/biking are out of the question.

Aside from the steep driveway, all other issues are easy fixes: some lightbulbs, an instruction book, and better wifi if possible.

The house is so charming with so many personal touches. We're surprised that the owner rents it out because of all of the amazing items in the house. It's so private and warm and cozy, it was really great for this trip with our kids. The loft is private and even the front room with the twin bed worked out perfectly. If we could move this house to the beach we'd happily stay here every time.

We loved the property and the setting. However, the driveway was challenging especially with a fully loaded car. We loved waking to the sounds of nature. We visited the beach and Haleiwa. We loved the location . I would highly recommend it to anyone.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We just had a short time for vacation with our son and are not big resort people. This house was the perfect getaway. We have stayed in dozens of VRBO homes (sometimes leaving immediately) and the pictures don't lie. The home is beautiful and and peaceful and just 5 minutes from the beach. Remember the North Shore is country and there will be roosters and dogs and birds.

Shangri-la in Oahu

  • 4 of 5

Loved the peace and quiet and separation from the "town" below.

Only 5 min. to North Shore beaches, Foodland, Coffee etc.

Stayed with my son and a friend for three nights.

We will return.

Loved our family stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house. It's very secluded and feels like you are removed from it all yet close to a grocery store and beaches. Charming HI style house. New very nice kitchen, tv with a ton of DVDs, washer and drier, BBQ, and lots of beach going supplies. It had everything we needed. We cooked every night and felt very at home.

Surf lessons and stand-up paddling are a must. For the ultra adventurous skydiving and glider riding can be arranged. We have a private sailboat available for whale watching or snorkeling depending on the time of the year.
