Property description

Ko'olau Country Gardens is a spectacular hillside property in the Ko'olau Mountains on the North Shore of Oahu. This Ko'olau hillside estate offers panoramic views of the blue Pacific.
Ko'olau Country Gardens has private guest hales (Hawaiian word for 'place to live' ). Two of the hales, located in the Ko'olau guest house, are available year-round. The second guest house, called the 'Mountain Villa, is available only in June/July. Each hale is priced individually. The Hibiscus Hale has two bedrooms/one bathroom; the Koi Pond Hale has three bedrooms/one bathroom. The Mountain Villa Guest House (a single family home that sits higher up the hillside) has 3 bedrooms, a large loft with sleeping area for two and two full bathrooms. Both the Mountain Villa and Koi Pond Hale have private outdoor showers. Ko'olau Country Gardens can accommodate small groups/families ( 10-12 people). The Hibiscus Hale, 2 bdrm, accommodates up to 4 people for $120 per night +tax+cleaning fee. The Koi Pond Hale, 3 bdrms, accommodates up to 6 people, which is is $150 per night+tax+ cleaning fee. The Mountain Villa Guest House, 3 bdrm + sleeping loft, accommodates up to 6+ people and is available in June/ July only, for $295 per night + tax + cleaning fee. Holiday rates are higher for both the Hibiscus ($130) and Koi Pond ($160) Hales.

Ko'olau Country Gardens is located in Hau'ula, Hawaii, a small, ancient, fishing village on Oahu's North Shore near the Polynesian Cultural Center, Turtle Bay Resort, Waimea Valley, Sunset Beach, Pipeline, Haleiwa town, Kualoa Ranch, Gunstock Ranch, Hauula Loop Trail, Kokololio Beach, Pounders Beach, Chinaman's Hat (Mokoli'li Island), Byodo Temple, Kahana Bay and many other wonderful Oahu attractions.
We are located approximately 45 minutes from Honolulu International Airport. Hau'ula is on the North Eastern coast/Windward side of Oahu, where the Ko'olau Mountains touch the sparkling, blue Pacific Ocean. Our small community of single family homes, small shops, and local-style restaurants (Papa Ole's, Korean BBQ, North Shore Taco's), is very different from the high rise, retail tourist center of Waikiki. With hiking trails (Hauula Loop and Makua Ridge trail) and unspoiled reefs for awesome snorkeling, we offer a glimpse of old Hawaii. We are confident that you will enjoy our Hawaiian-style hales, tropical gardens, fish ponds and remote, peaceful, country location.

Ko'olau Country Gardens has all the amenities, including spectacular ocean and mountain views, spacious lanais, exquisite tropical gardens with tropical fruits...you may enjoy during your stay. We grow fish and taro/luau leaves in our aquaponic gardens. You are welcome to visit the aquaponic gardens during your stay. It is open for guests by appointment.

We have recently opened our "Tiki Terrace" on the lower lawn. It's a great spot for small gatherings. It's furnished with table and chairs and a gas grill for Ono barbecues! Please let us know in advance if you want to reserve the Tiki Terrace. There is no extra charge for onsite guests.
.
The private, peaceful location of our guest houses offer a sanctuary that is hidden away from other homes and traffic noises. At Ko'olau Country Gardens you can experience the ocean breezes and waves coaxing you to relax and enjoy the magic of this unique, tropical wonderland we call Hawaii.

Ko'olau Country Gardens has two hales (Hibiscus and Koi Pond) available year-round. The Mountain Villa is also available in the summer, June and July. The owners live onsite. We are family-friendly and love sharing our experience of creating sustainable gardens and fish ponds.

Our primary goal is to ensure that your visit to our home and gardens is filled with Aloha...the real magic of Hawaii.

We believe your stay at Ko'olau Country Gardens will be a memorable experience because of the beauty, peace and closeness to nature...a truly unique Hawaiian experience.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1993

About the owner: Hau'ula is a village with 'real people' ... a truly spiritual place, on the ocean, with the most beautiful, private beaches in Hawaii. Hau'ula is home to many Native Hawaiians and other Polynesians. Ko'olau Country Gardens Guest Houses are located high on the hillside of the Ko'olau Mountains, overlooking the small town of Hau'ula with spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean. There's not a better location on earth...we love it!

Why the Owner Chose Hauula:
We chose to live in Hau'ula because of it's people, weather, natural beauty and location...far away from the crowds of Waikiki and Honolulu. The pace is slower, life is more informal and people are good friends and neighbors.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
The property is agricultural with many tropical fruit trees and an organic, aquaponic garden. There is plenty of food to eat right on the land. We grow tilapia in a large stone-walled fishpond.
