About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Spectacular mountain views and a gorgeous beach provide the setting for our two-bedroom, one-bath cedar house on the rural Windward Coast of Oahu.
This is our home located on Kualoa Ranch, our family's historic and beautiful working cattle ranch. The house, a pleasant country cottage with cathedral ceilings and picture windows, sits at the mouth of the magnificent Kaaawa Valley. The view from the deck includes cattle grazing beneath fluted cliffs. Egrets, mynah birds, and cardinals abound in the garden area, and coconut palms frame a small ornamental pond.
Only steps away, across a small, two-lane road, the beach is ideal for swimming, boogie boarding, surfing, or lazing in the sun. The house is located at the mouth of Kaaawa Valley, the spectacular heart of Kualoa Ranch and the site of many movies including 50 First Dates, Mighty Joe Young, Godzilla, Jurassic Park and Jurassic World.
Opportunities to tour the valley by horseback or ATV or even on a zipline tour are provided at Kualoa Ranch just down the road.
Nestled among stands of coconut palms and hala trees, the house offers airy and spacious living and dining areas, wall-to-wall carpet and tile floors, a complete kitchen, washer and dryer, linens, and cable TV and high speed internet. There is a wrap-around deck for outdoor lounging and dining as well as a charcoal grill for outdoor cooking.
The mountain view bedroom has a queen bed and the oceanside bedroom has a queen and a twin. There is also a comfortable futon in the living room.
This is one of the most beautiful and serene locations on the island of Oahu, yet is only a 40 minute drive to Honolulu, 20 minutes to several golf courses and 30 minutes to the famous North Shore Beaches. Come and enjoy our lovely corner of the islands as much as we do!

Manager info

About: The Mushroom House was built by my mother in the early 1970's on land she was given by her grandmother, Julie Judd Swanzy. The house has been enjoyed by 4 generations of our family, all of whom spent much of their time growing up on our family ranch, Kualoa.
