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

A great house with very good artistic decorations and is well equipped with every amenities needed!

  • 5 of 5

The 5 of us had stayed here for 12 nights in April 2017. All of us enjoyed the house so much as it is very spacious and is well-equipped with all amenities. Jim is quick to fill up supply when they run out. The house is decorated with many art pieces and they are all very thoughtfully placed. We enjoyed our BBQ outside on one evening. It is a pleasant surprise!

We also enjoy our drive everyday as it is very scenic, driving along the coast line. We definitely will recommend to our groups of friends who will come to Hawaii regularly.

Thank you Jim, it is a pleasure to have you as our host.

Best regards,

Michael Sin.

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 :)
