About the property

4 bedroom, 2 bathroom private home at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac in Pupukea

This peaceful property is located at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac on the mountain above Waimea Valley. The air is cool and breezy and there is plenty of shade from the big mango and coconut trees. This traditional redwood plantation home has been remodeled and decorated with new furniture making it very cozy and clean. There is plenty of very safe, off-street parking within the property gates. Sharks Cove Beach, Three Tables Beach and Waimea Bay are just a 6 minute drive down Pupukea Road. Pupukea road is a residential rode without traffic. Sharks Cove has plenty of eating areas, rental shops, a coffee shop and a large grocery store. Breathtaking hiking, biking and horse back riding trails are within walking or biking distance from the property.

About Gavin Beschen

Gavin, Kendyl and their two children live in a fancy yurt on the back corner of the acre. The property is split and there is a fence separating the front half of the yard with the vacation rental and the rest of the property where the owners live. Although they like to give guests privacy, they are happy to interact with guests and offer any assistance they can. Gavin Beschen is a professional surfer and guests may book private surf experiences with him. Kendyl is a yoga and music teacher and offers private yoga and music lessons as well.

Gavin Beschen purchased this house in 2016

Why Gavin Beschen chose Haleiwa

We owned a home down by the beach for over 15 years and although our family surfs daily, we wanted to have more space, peace, and privacy so we moved up to beautiful Pupukea. Our property is such a short drive from the all the best beaches on the North Shore, yet when we are ready to leave the beach we are able to escape the traffic, noise and heat and come up to this peaceful sanctuary.

What makes this house unique

This property is so quiet and the neighborhood is very peaceful and charming. The home can sleep 8 and is very private. The temperature is also much cooler in Pupukea so AC is not necessary. Fans are available for use, but with the cool breeze most people don't even use the fans.

Quaint, but Failed to Meet Expectations

  • 3 of 5

This home is in a beautiful location up a mountain on the North Shore. It's a very short drive to many popular beaches and the Historic town of Haleiwa. The owners were friendly and our son loved playing with their son. If you want to stay like a local this is the house for you. With that said, I don't think we were expecting the house itself, to be quite as rustic and local feeling as it was. There were a few easy things that could have been fixed up on the house to make the visit a little more comfortable. Many of the doors didn't fit the doorways properly so they wouldn't open or close all the way. The window was missing in the master bath which actually made it quite chilly on one of the stormy nights. There was obvious termite damage in the living room and paint could have been touched up. This one is really not the owner's fault, but we had a big ant problem in one of the guest rooms. We were super careful with food and no food was even brought into that room. Due to the fact that we essentially couldn't use that room we had to sleep 3 to the only other king bed which led to none of us getting a good nights sleep. Some of the other reviews were a little misleading. If you're coming up with some buddies and basically just need a place to sleep then this is the place for you. For myself, I like vacations to feel a little more luxurious and relaxing than home and this rental didn't reach that mark. Again the owners were great and the area is wonderful, I just don't think it was a good fit for our family as it failed to meet our expectations.

Simple and quiet. Awesome getaway.

  • 5 of 5

The property is very peaceful and quiet. Close to all the North Shore action. Nice place to retreat to, and wind down after a long day of fun. The house is cozy and has a few quirks. Has everything needed for a weeklong stay. Not luxurious, but quite comfortable. Owners are super cool, and were available to answer any questions.

I've already recommended this rental to several friends. I would definitely rent this house again.

Quiet and Peaceful

  • 4 of 5

We loved the quiet location of this rental property. The homeowners live at the back of the property and were very respectful of the fact that we were on a family getaway. They were very kind and thoughtful. Sleeping at night with the windows open was a real treat as we were able to enjoy the sounds of the jungle. This really is a tropical oasis at the top of the mountain. We loved it that the ocean breezes cool the house nicely. The house itself has a well equipped kitchen and we were able to cook and eat with ease. There is one master bedroom with attached bathroom, and three other bedrooms with a main bathroom down the hallway. It was perfect for our family of five. We could easily have shared the space with my sister and her family (two parents and two teens). One thing to note is that this is a fairly rustic and down to earth type of house with a very relaxed feel. Don't expect things to be like a five star hotel....just a great place to kick back and immerse yourself in a true-to-life Hawaiian neighbourhood. We would stay again!

We are 2.4 miles away from the beach on the mountain just above Waimea Valley. It's very central because Foodland Grocery Store, The Coffee Bean and all the shops and eateries are just a 6 minute drive down Pupukea Road. Pupukea Road is a residential rode that never has traffic. Waimea Bay is also just down the road. Pipeline is about ten minutes to the east while Chuns Reef and Laniakea (The famous Turtle Beach) are about ten minutes to the west. Haleiwa town is 7 miles away.
