About the Property

Our spacious 3 bedroom home offers a unique experience of living in the round.

Wood interiors, rock & stone, and natural fabrics combine in our custom home inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright’s 1938 Jester house. Most rooms are entirely circular. The spacious interior is perfect for yoga, meditation, writing, acoustic music making. The elevated balconies lift the spirits with panoramic garden and ocean views. The property is 1.5 acres of environmentally friendly grounds with pockets of wilderness, tropical plantings and an orchid grotto nestled in the banyan tree. The BEDROOM SUITES have queen size round beds and private baths. Bathrooms are tiled in slate with open showers. In keeping with the natural elements of the house, all linens are of fine cotton quality. Plan to cook in and enjoy the warmth of our wooded DINING ROOM. The LIVING ROOM features a sweeping circular sofa where you can lounge and enjoy ocean views or watch a movie. Furnishings are mostly built in accented with mid century designer pieces and Asian antiques.

We strive to maintain an understated elegance defined by simplicity, mid century modernity and minimalism. Current guest reviews are featured on our web site at

We are a short walk to one of the most private beaches on the North Shore (500 feet to Keiki Beach) and a surf break away from world famous Pipeline. You will cross the bike path on the way to the beach. The bike path is safe for children and stretches from Waimea Bay to Sunset Beach.

Less than 5 miles away is Haleiwa town, a combination of Hawaiian country charm and regional arts and crafts. You will find Balinese goods, Brazilian bikinis, fresh leis, local art work, dress shops, black pearls, skateboard and surf shops representing the Hawaiian style and much more. Restaurants are casual and geared to early dining. The Coffee Gallery cafe serves fresh Hawaiian coffee and Celestial Foods is the place to find locally grown organics. You can also find fresh produce at The Country Market on Saturday mornings at Sunset Beach Elementary School (less than a mile away)....Our property is central to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Waimea Falls Park, across from the bay, is an 1800 acre nature park and you can swim in the water falls....At the top of the Park on the hill you will find Puu O Mahuka Heiau, Oahu's largest ancient temple ruin that covers nearly 2 acres. Today it is still recognized and protected as a historical landmark.

Concerning children: Due to the use of large panes of glass in the doors, concrete stairways, high balconies and stone ledges, the house may not be suitable for young children. However older children will find the garden delightful. On the property there are pockets of wilderness, wonderful for exploring; there is a sacred grove of gnarly old trees (beware of thorns), rocks and boulders for climbing, flowers for gazing, all alive for the imaginative. Layout of the bedrooms at the south (master suite) and north (blue suite and green room) poles of the house provides privacy. Additional photos at

The House of Sacred Circles is on the Sunset Beach side of Waimea Bay on Oahu's North Shore. Located mauka (mountain side) across from Keiki Beach and Log Cabin's surf break the property is less than 500 feet to the beach and bike path. It is a short beach walk to Pipeline. We are centrally located to world famous Waimea Bay, Pipeline and Sunset Beach. Enjoy beautiful uncrowded beaches in summer and world class surf in winter. * Old Hawaiian charm characterizes Haleiwa town which is a scenic 5 mile drive to casual dining and shops. Also within five miles is the Turtle Bay resort where you will find tennis, golf and fine dining.

Other Activities: skateboard park nearby

Golf: Closest Golf course is the Turtle Bay Fazio Course

18 holes, par 72, 6535 yards. All prices per person and include golf cart rental, bag tag, yardage book, bottled water & one bucket of practice balls.

Located on Oahu's scenic North Shore about 70 minutes from Waikiki, The George Fazio Course features generous fairways, deep bunkers, and incredible ocean views. (price includes free bucket of range balls)

Poised on the northernmost tip of Oahu, Turtle Bay Golf is the perfect choice for the golfer who wants to escape Honolulu and Waikiki. This secluded North Shore resort is named after the bay it overlooks, which is visited each year by green sea turtles that come to nest in Turtle Bay's pristine waters. The George Fazio Course has hosted the LPGA Tour's Hawaiian Open and was the site of the first Senior Skins Game and Big Break V. George Fazio's only golf course in Hawaii was re-opened in the spring of 2002 and is known to have some of the best greens on the island of Oahu. Holes #6,7,11,12 are all situated near the Ocean. Don't forget to also play the Turtle Bay Palmer Course.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1990

About the owner: I am a composer/performer/harpist and have performed my works around New York City in such unlikely places as CBGB's (now gone, what a loss!), Mother, Arlene's Grocery, Slipper Room, the New York and Philadelphia Fringe Festivals, and more recently at the International Conferences for Deep Listening in Troy, NY. Co owner, Anthony, is a painter of landscapes and more abstract large works and restores antique motorcycles. He used to build custom bikes in Hawaii and has won some awards. He also built the house. Hawaii was the perfect antidote to urban living and continues to be so. Many changes are happening on the North Shore and hopefully the area will retain some of its rural qualities. Presently I reside in rural Central Pennsylvania and share my home in Hawaii with the lucky ones.

Why the Owner Chose Haleiwa, HI, USA:
Our home is owner built, it is quirky and unique. Our guests find the harmony and peaceful atmosphere at welcome retreat. The house sites on an 1.5 acres provided privacy and seclusion. We are happy to share it with kindred minded, hearted guests.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
An experience in the round!
