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 $150 per night. There is a discount on a week or longer stays. 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 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.

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, HI, USA:
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.
