About Lisa K
We are an active family of 5, living on the South Shore of Oahu. Raising our children in the islands has been a blessing. Kawela Ranch is a special place where we can get away to reconnect with one another and at the same time enjoy country surf, sun, beauty and charm. We have thoroughly enjoyed being able to share the "aloha spirit" and open our home to other families who are looking for a truly authentic north shore, Oahu experience.
Lisa K purchased this House in 2014
Why Lisa K chose Kahuku
Waikiki may be for some, but growing up on Oahu, we truly appreciate the peace and tranquility of the north shore. The minute we drive into the private subdivision, see the horses, and breathe in the country air we know we are HOME. If we want to head out to surf, dine, or adventure it is all just minutes away in either direction... but coming home to this oasis is what true island living is all about!
What makes this House unique
We fell in love with this piece of land the second we laid eyes on it. The views and country feel capture the essence of true Hawaii living. When we designed and built the home, we made sure it tied in with the natural landscape and took advantage of views in every direction. At night, the stars are crystal clear and the sounds of rolling waves create the perfect lullaby. Lemons, limes, papayas and bananas are grown on property and free for our guest's enjoyment. Kawela Ranch is indeed a unique getaway in one of the most beautiful spots on Oahu.You won't regret staying at this home!

Awesome family vacation spot! Property was clean and as advertised. We are looking forward to a return trip.
Awesome property and location + the owner is kind and helpful. My family had a great stay and vacation.
Cannot recommend this place enough! It is so spacious and clean. The views are breath taking and Lise was so kind and prompt to answer any questions. Looking forward to booking here again in the future !
Mahalo, Kayla! It was such a pleasure hosting your family on the beautiful north shore of Oahu! We are so happy to hear that our home could serve as a comfortable and relaxing backdrop for your Oahu vacation. The magical views and wide open spaces are definitely a rare find here in the islands. Please let us know the next time you plan a Hawaii getaway :)
Aloha for now!
North Shore stay
Lise has an amazing place and is a wonderful, attentive host. I would fully recommend a stay at her place and hope to revisit it myself one day : )
Thank you, Deanna! We love our special home and we also love sharing it with great groups like yours! We really appreciate these kind words and hope to host you again sooner rather than later!
Mahalo Nui Loa,
If you’re searching for a vacation spot on the North Shore look no further. Our group of 8 just spent a week in this incredible home and it really is paradise. It’s in a truly unique location and has everything you’ll need for a laid-back, relaxed holiday. Take a look at the pictures - the grounds are an actual horse farm - so you look out at the ocean and in the foreground you see horses grazing in green pastures. The house itself is amazing - with wide open spaces and a fabulous kitchen that has everything you could ever need. The master suite is very large with a beautiful bathroom and an enormous walk-in closet. The additional 3 bedrooms are lovely and each has a bathroom either en suite or within just a few steps.
The location is unbeatable, it’s so close to everything on the North Shore. We drove into Honolulu several times and depending on where we went it could take over an hour. But the scenery is so beautiful the drive just flies by! And we always looked forward to getting back to this breathtaking home.
All in all this was an amazing rental experience and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to stay on the North Shore! The owner is a treasure - so helpful and kind! There are no trade-off's with this home you get the best of everything. We’re already looking forward to our next trip!
Thank you so very much for this awesome review. I am so happy to hear that our special corner of north shore paradise could be your home away from home during your Oahu vacation. We love hosting wonderful families like yours and look forward to your return visit!
Mahalo & Aloha!
Lise & Family
We spent 6 beautiful nights at this amazing property, everything you could ask for. There was 6 adults, 2 teenagers and a 4 year old all of us loved spending the evenings on the balcony enjoying the view. We didn’t hire a car however with a bus stop just out the front it was easy enough to get along the north shore.. Do yourself a favour and don’t look any further you won’t beat this beautiful property.
A big MAHALO from our ohana to yours for this wonderful review. We love hearing how much our guests enjoy the wrap around decks and breathtaking views- our favorite feature of the home too! We hope you created special memories on the north shore of Oahu and we look forward to your return visit!
Me Ke Aloha and a hui hou (see you soon!)
Located on the North Shore of Oahu, between Sunset Beach and Turtle Bay, this newly built ranch style home offers a true Hawaii country experience. Charming Haleiwa town delivers wonderful dining and shopping options and is just a 15 minute drive from the property. Snorkeling, horseback riding, eco tours, surf lessons, and zip lining are just some of the activities offered nearby.
During the winter months, pack a picnic and head west a couple of miles to watch surfers from all over the world brave the spectacular and often monstrous waves. The 'Vans Triple Crown of Surfing' series is referred to as the jewel of professional surfing and attracts international media attention each year. With heavy waves and heavy wipeouts, these contests provide some serious and exciting spectator entertainment.
The Polynesian Cultural Center- a Polynesian themed theme park and living museum is also a 15 minute drive away. Plan an authentic luau experience and then head home to put your feet up on the deck and enjoy the serene views from the house.
Turtle Bay Resort is a few minutes by car down the road from the home. Dine at Lei Lei's Bar and Grill (our favorite family stop), organize a horseback riding tour, plan a spa day, or tee it up on one of the resort's two premier golf courses!
If you don't want to drive anywhere, you can WALK about 5 minutes to Waiale'e Beach and spend the day enjoying this less crowded north shore gem. With great tide pooling and snorkeling conditions, especially in the summer, this beach is a family favorite!
Kawela Ranch has access to all of the North Shore's surf, buzz, adventure, and excitement- but still offers the quiet, laid back escape that will allow you to fully relax on your vacation. You really can't beat this home's location, where Hawaii north shore adventure meets true country paradise!
