About the Property
Two or three bedroom unit with Ocean views, quiet, peaceful getaway!
OCEAN VIEWS - Ko Olau Country Gardens provides views of the blue Pacific, the majestic Koolau Mountains, soothing waterfalls, koi ponds, rock-wall terraces with tropical fruit trees galore!
3-5 MINUTES TO BEACH - Located on the Ko Olau Mountain hillside, only a short 3-5 minute walk to Hau'ula beach, it's the perfect location to enjoy lovely, sandy beaches for sunning and snorkeling, surfing. We even provide snorkel gear, boogie boards and beach chairs for our guests! Just ask us!
POLYNESIAN CULTURAL CENTER 5 MINUTES- Polynesian Cultural Center is 5 minutes away. A great way to spend the whole day visiting all the islands of Polynesia!
TWO PRIVATE GUEST UNITS - Ko Olau Country Gardens has two private guest hales (Hawaiian word for 'place to live' pronounced like "holly"), rented separately, that are available year-round . The Hibiscus Hale, 2 bdrm/1 bathroom, comfortably accommodates 4 people for $140 per night + tax + a one-time cleaning fee $130. The Koi Pond Hale, 3 bdrms/1 bathroom, accommodates up to 6-7 people for $170 per night + tax + a one-time cleaning fee $150.
LOCATED IN HAU'ULA - Ko Olau Country Gardens is located in Hau'ula, Hawaii, a small, ancient, fishing and taro-growing village on Oahu's North Shore. Hau'ula has the most beautiful, sandy beaches, and no crowds!! Great family spot with protected keiki pools for young children, and the older ones too!
POPULAR ATTRACTIONS NEARBY - Turtle Bay Resort (public beach, surfing, snorkeling and restaurants, golf courses), Leilei's Bar and Grill at the golf course, Roy's Beach House Restaurant is now open on the beach at Turtle Bay, Waimea Valley (botanical gardens, gift shop, restaurant and awesome waterfall), Macadamia Nut Outlet at Kualoa Farms (gift shops, cultural shows), Sunset Beach (big wave surfing), Pipeline, Haleiwa town (shopping and dining), Kualoa Ranch (horseback riding and movie tours, gift shop, restaurant), Gunstock Ranch (horseback riding), Hau'ula Loop Trail (great hiking trail), Kokololio Beach (sunning and snorkeling) and "Alligator Pond"(protected swimming pond for young children/keiki on south end of the park), Pounders Beach (boogie boarding), Chinaman's Hat (Mokoli'li Island), Bodo Temple (Japanese Temple), Kahana Bay (beach park), Kahana Valley (state park, hiking trails) and many other wonderful North Shore attractions.
HONOLULU AIRPORT 45 MINUTES - We are located approximately 45 minutes from Honolulu International Airport and Pearl Harbor and 60 minutes from Waikiki.
NORTH SHORE LOCATION - Hau'ula is on the North Shore of Oahu, where magical, evergreen, Ko Olau Mountains reach up and tickle the clouds and flow down into the sparkling, blue Pacific. The small, remote Hau'ula community (4,500 people) of single family homes, small shops (Chings Store- gift store is a great local treasure!), and local-style restaurants (Papa Ole's, Korean BBQ, North Shore Taco's), is very different from the high rise, busy retail tourism center of Waikiki. Hau'ula truly offers a glimpse of old Hawaii, slower paced , peaceful, with friendly people... with one of the largest Hawaiian/Polynesian communities on the island.
HAWAIIAN-STYLE GUEST HOUSE & GARDENS - We are confident that you will enjoy our Hawaiian-style hales, gardens, koi pond and remote, peaceful, country location.
Ko Olau Country Gardens has all the amenities at no extra cost, including spectacular ocean and mountain views, spacious private lanais with out-door dining areas, gas grills.
OFF STREET PARKING RESERVED - Reserved parking for 2 cars per unit ( no charge)
HOME GROWN FRUIT & FISHPONDS - Tropical fruit trees, koi pond and an aquaponic garden...you may want to enjoy the ripe fruit when in season, just ask!
BEACH STUFF - We also provide beach towels, beach seats, boogie boards, beach chairs and snorkeling gear, just let us know. (Its good to schedule it ahead.)
FAMILY FRIENDLY - We provide a high chair, pack n play and sand toys too!
MAKAI LANAI - We created a new gathering area we call the "Makai (Ocean) Lanai" on the lower lawn. It's a lovely spot for small gatherings up to twenty people. The Makai Lanai is furnished with table and chairs and a gas grill for barbecues. Please let us know if you want to reserve the Makai Lanai for your private gathering. There is no extra charge. The Makai Lanai is restricted for registered guests only.
PEACEFUL GETAWAY - The private, peaceful location of our Ko'olau guest house offers a sanctuary, hidden away from other homes and traffic noises. At Ko'olau Country Gardens you can experience the ocean breezes and hear the whisper of the waves coaxing you to relax and enjoy the magic of this unique, tropical paradise we call Hawaii.
OWNERS LIVE ONSITE - At Ko'olau Country Gardens the owners live onsite. We are family-friendly and love sharing our knowledge of plants, our gardens, local sites and attractions.
OUR GOAL - Our primary goal is to ensure that your visit to our home and gardens is filled with Aloha...the real magic of Hawaii.

Year Purchased: 1993
About the owner: We are retired and have lived in Hauula 25 years. We purchased this unique and beautiful property with two homes and slowly made repairs and improvements to the homes and the property. In fact, this renovation process never seems to end! We live in one home full-time and rent the Ko'olau Guest House. The guest house is a Hawaiian, local style home that we have made improvements to provide privacy and lush tropical gardens that surround each hale. Our goal is to provide hales that are quiet and peaceful havens that fulfill the promise of beauty and aloha of Hawaii for our guests to enjoy. We love greeting our guests and making sure they are happy and comfortable during their stay. We try to offer our knowledge of our place that makes your visit here a wonderful, magical experience. We make a lot of new friends along the way and host people from all over the world.
Why the Owner Chose Hauula, HI, USA:
Hau'ula is a village with 'real people' ... a truly authentic Hawaiian place, on the ocean, with the most beautiful, peaceful beaches in Hawaii. Hau'ula is home to many Native Hawaiians and other Polynesians. Ko'olau Country Gardens Guest House is located high on the hillside of the Ko'olau Mountains overlooking the small town of Hau'ula with spectacular views of the Pacific. There's not a better location on earth...we love it! We chose to live in Hau'ula because of it's people, weather, natural beauty and location...far away from the crowds of Waikiki and Honolulu. The pace is slower, life is more informal and people are good friends and neighbors.
The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
The property is agricultural with many tropical fruit trees on rockwall terraces. We have papaya, apple banana, breadfruit, coconut, star fruit, grapefruit, fig, logan, lichee, mango, orange, lemon, lime, chico, avocado and mountain apple. This is a great place to learn about tropical agriculture and plants.
