Hauula house description

The Homestead, our restored farmhouse, is cradled in a setting of verdant greens and rainbow-hued colors, supplied by lush vegetation spread over two acres. The steep Ko’olau Mountains provide the backdrop, the blue Pacific Ocean the foreground.

You can immerse yourself in a Hawaii of days past. Awaken to the fragrance of floral essences, wafting on the gentle Trade Winds. Open your eyes to a breathtaking sunrise and listen to the chorus of exotic birds greeting the new day. Partake of some of the abundance the land provides such as mangoes, papaya, bananas, limes, oranges and coconut.

The house has three bedrooms and one bath on each level. These units are rented SEPARATELY. EACH unit is $135 per night. If you need space for up to twelve people you would need to rent both units. The upstairs consists of a living room, kitchen with an adjoining dining area, a fully equipped kitchen, an office area, and inspiration or quiet room, a single bathroom with tub and shower and a mountainside lanai.

The two bedrooms are furnished with queen-size beds and attractive island décor, the third bedroom has a full bed and cheerful tropical colors. The living room is equipped with a TV with Oceanic Time Warner cable and CD/DVD player. In addition to the traditional rattan couch and chair, it is also furnished with a single fold down futon. The dining area can easily accommodate six. The inspiration or quiet room provides an area between the front two bedrooms for playing cards or reading. This is a great spot to start your day with a cup of coffee or tea.

An office area has been made in the expansive hallway leading to the lanai. The back Lanai has a table and chairs, as well as built in seating. There is a covered clothesline for drying clothes in the fresh air. A charcoal/gas grill is provided for those aspiring chefs.
The Homestead Garden Suite is on the ground level. It too has three bedrooms, a bathroom with a large shower, a fully equipped kitchen, a cozy living area, with a comfy sofa and arm chair, an additional seating area is available on the large enclosed lanai. A bar height dining table provides an almost alfresco experience enhanced by the view out onto the grounds of an ever changing scape of blooming foliage and fruit bearing trees and shrubs. A cafe table and chairs is located outside by the gas grill for the true alfresco experience.

Should you want to explore our island, there are numerous activities to lure you to other areas both near and far. The Polynesian Cultural Center offers an incredible introduction to the island and it's cultural heritage, just 5 minutes north by car. Sandy white beaches are at every turn of the road, often deserted during the week, a pleasure to walk, snorkel or simply relax in the sun. The closest beach is a mere 7 to 10 minute walk.

For the hiking enthusiasts, there are two mountain trails within a five minute walk, Hauula Loop Trail and Makapuu Ridge Trail. The famous Sunset Beach, site of numerous surfing competitions, is just 20 minutes north, further along is Waimea with an Audubon-sponsored park and fabulous beach. Then you come into Haleiwa, an old town established in the days of sugarcane and pineapples. It still exudes it's original charm. Do not miss the shave ice!

To the southeast is Kualoa Ranch, maybe a 20 minute drive. This is the site of numerous location shots for movies, such as Jurassic Park. It also hosts varied activities for all age groups including horseback riding, ATV riding, historical exhibits, World War II Bunkers and much more.

Shopping for groceries, visiting local eateries and small local shops with Hawaiian treasures is part of the Hauula experience. They all sustain our local economy and make living in Hauula such a pleasure. You too can experience the authentic Aloha of Hawaii, come join us at the Homestead.

Honolulu is about an hour away, the shopping, the entertainment, the museums, all exude the aura of a big city with all the accouterments. It is definitely worth the journey, but, so is coming back to the tranquility of The Homestead.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2000

              About the owner: We bought our house to fulfill a dream of living off the land. The almost two acres provide us with many seasonal fruits and an abundance of flowers. Family responsibilities and job requirements often call us to different continents so it is a dream still in progress. In the meantime we opened the doors to allow visitors to our island the experience of the serenity of our Homestead. You will be welcomed with Aloha to our little piece of paradise.

              Why the Owner Chose Hauula:
              The location was an ideal match for our dream. Away from the densely populated area of the island, away from the noise, congestion and close to life long friends.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              A family friendly neighborhood
