About Jim Franklin TA 118-409-8304-01

I have lived in Hawaii for about 20 years now. I own a small business:

I purchased this home to live in but it's just too big for me! I decided to use as a vacation rental and have had great success as you can see from my reviews.

These days I live 1/2 time in the Philippines with my beautiful wife and 2 new babies! I plan to bring them to Hawaii eventually and live in the house...but for now I am sticking with the vacation rental biz....

Jim Franklin TA 118-409-8304-01 purchased this house in 2006

Why Jim Franklin TA 118-409-8304-01 chose Hauula

Close to the beach with 'deeded beach access' and very roomy!

What makes this house unique

Plenty of room for a large family and easy access to the Punalu'u Beach Park across the street.

Wonderful location and accomodations!

  • 5 of 5

Our families reunited for the holidays and had a wonderful time!! We were very comfortable and the open floor plan was perfect for all ages. The kitchen is well stocked. The beach towels, toys, boogie boards, kayak and paddles, life jackets and location were perfect. The short walk to the beach was great. At the same time it was easy to explore the North Shore as well as many other nearby attractions. The abundance of food trucks as well as restaurants offer fresh seafood, fruits, and many styles of cooking. This home also offers air conditioning as well as ceiling fans so every room can be individually controlled. The lava rock garden walls offer privacy and security. There is a good security system as well as new, large bar-be-cue patio with outside shower for sandy feet. We loved our stay and only wished we had booked some of the tours , especially to the nearby Kualoa Ranch, where many scenes for Jurassic were shot. The scenery, with lush forests on the lava mountain slopes, is beautiful. The beautiful views of bays, beaches, turquoise waters and waves are unforgettable. Hauanuma Bay and many beaches are perfect for snorkeling. Waimea Valley is near, incredible verdant, and culturally rich. We must return! Thank you Jim for providing so much comfort and convenience with your wonderful home!

Highly Recommend!!

  • 5 of 5

This was an awesome place to stay for our family of 8 adults. The four bedrooms, 3 couches and 3 bathrooms offered plenty of space for our family. The location on the North Shore convenient to nearby food trucks and the Polynesian Cultural Center. The owner, Jim, was kind and available for any questions we had. We highly recommend this rental.

A little piece of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

A great home in the perfect location! Our party of 10 was able to sleep comfortably in the home and feel like we had plenty of space to relax during the day. Everything you could need was supplied from a well stocked kitchen, quality linens, ample seating for large parties to beach supplies to enjoy the beautiful beaches. The interior isn't all this home has to offer though, the beach access across the street is beautiful! Home is a perfect location to explore the whole island while enjoying the lush, tropical eastern coast as our home base. We all feel like we had the true Hawaiian experience instead of just a touristy island vacation.

Appreciative & Grateful

  • 5 of 5

The owner was quick to response to a last minute request. In addition, the manager and husband were very helpful and accommodating. If given the opportunity again we will definitely consider this property again. Thank you all for making our saddest moments in life the best.

Great house for spending quality time with our ohana

  • 5 of 5

The reason for visiting Hawai'i ne was a somber one, but it brought our ohana together. We reminisced about our childhood and watched our keikis make memories of their own with each other. Jim was so welcoming from the start. He walked us through the check-in showing us all the house had to offer. I highly recommend staying here as the Punalu'u beach is across the street. You don't have to get in your car to hit the beach! Mahalo Jim for extending your home to our ohana!

This house was perfect for our family of 8 trip to Oahu!

  • 5 of 5

Jim met us when we arrived and thoroughly explained every detail/ aspect of the house. The house was stocked with tons of beach/ snorkel gear and we used those items daily during our stay. Panuula beach was very nice- private and just a quick little walk away. The house was very comfortable, cooled very nicely - and was stocked with all the kitchen essentials. We Loved the kayak, too!!! We traveled up to the North Shore multiple times as well as traveled to the city to see the sights. Our family had an awesome time and will cherish these memories forever!! Thanks, Jim :)
