LOCATED IN HAU'ULA - Hibiscus Hale is located in Hau'ula, Hawaii, a small, ancient, fishing and taro-growing village on Oahu's North Shore. Hau'ula has beautiful, sandy beaches, and no crowds!! Great family spot with protected keiki pool for young children.

NORTH SHORE LOCATION - Hau'ula is on the North Shore of Oahu, where magical, evergreen, Ko olau Mountains reach up to the clouds and flow down into the sparkling, blue Pacific. The small, remote Hau'ula community (4,000 people) of single family homes, small shops (Chings Store- gift store is a great local treasure!), and local-style restaurants (Papa Ole's, Korean BBQ, North Shore Taco's), Tamura's Grocery with one of the best wine selections on the North Shore, and a Longs Drugs/CVS. Hau'ula is very different from the high rise, busy retail tourism center of Waikiki. Hau'ula truly offers a glimpse of old Hawaii, slower paced , peaceful, with friendly people... with one of the largest Hawaiian/Polynesian communities on the island.

The Makai Lanai is restricted for registered guests only.

PEACEFUL GETAWAY - The private, peaceful location of our Ko'olau guest house offers a sanctuary, hidden away from other homes and traffic noises. At Ko'olau Country Gardens you can experience the ocean breezes and hear the whisper of the waves coaxing you to relax and enjoy the magic of this unique, tropical paradise we call Hawaii.

Dotty Kelly purchased this guest house in 1992

Why Dotty Kelly chose Hauula

We chose Hauula, a town of 4,500 people because of it's natural beauty and friendly people. Most families in Hauula have been here for generations. This lovely hillside property is out of the way, very quiet, peaceful and spacious. There are ocean and mountain views from every angle. Each morning lovely birdsongs awaken you to another adventurous day in Hawaii!

What makes this guest house unique

Ko olau Country Gardens has many Hawaiian fruits growing onsite...mangos, papaya, guava, limes, mountain apple, starfruit, bananas and more! We are happy to share whatever is in season. We also provide beach toys, boogie boards, some snorkeling gear for fun days at the beach! We have lovely views, a large gazebo and outdoor lanais and gas grill.

Beautiful hale with great views and screened in lanai

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful property. The Home itself clean and worked great for our family of 4. The screened in lanai was a favorite for hanging out and enjoying the Hau’ula evenings. The owners were kind and attentive and even gave us a tour of the large property and the many fruit trees. Overall a wonderful place to stay.

Quaint, cozy and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We can’t tell you how much we appreciated Dotty and Peter’s care. They helped us arrange a small wedding reception and set up tents and tables and lovely floral arrangements. The Hibiscus Hale was quaint and cozy, clean and comfortable. We can’t thank you enough for making our stay memorable. We would definitely stay here again.
