Beautiful, fully renovated, 3/1 on very private acre above Ke Iki Beach. House is classic plantation style with sweeping ocean views. Short walk or bike ride to Pipeline, Waimea, Sunset. Easy access via bike path to miles of world class surf breaks.

We renovated this 1930's plantation house with all antique windows and doors and vertical grain fir flooring. This house has high ceilings and a twelve foot opening, through vintage sliding doors, to a very large lanai. You have breathtaking, unending ocean views. Stunning sunsets, whale watching and star gazing from the privacy of your home. Only a two minute walk down to the pristine sand and water of Ke Iki Beach - Oahu's largest, least crowded white sand beach. Hear the waves crashing from this country paradise.

                                                            A very relaxing, comfortable house made for a great holiday.

                                                            Jacinda F.

                                                            We loved staying in this house. It was very comfortable & had everything we needed. The view was fantastic & it was close to highlights on the north shore while being in a quiet location. Paul was a great host too. We'd recommend it.

                                                            The Perfect Getaway

                                                            Jeffrey S.San Francisco, CA, USA

                                                            Oahu offers all kinds of vacations for travelers. Waikiki and Honolulu help satisfy the city craving, Kailua helps satisfy the beach with pristine sand and water craving, and the North Shore helps satisfy that need to get away from it all and have a relaxing vacation. Paul's house on the North Shore provides the quintessential place to rest your head and weary bones after a long day of exploring all that the island has to offer.

                                                            My friends and I had a long weekend of hiking, swimming, and kayaking and we loved the remoteness and privacy that Paul's house offered at the end of each day.

                                                            The highlights for us:

                                                            -Three good-sized bedrooms with incredibly comfortable beds

                                                            -An incredible lanai with an even more incredible view

                                                            -Whale watching with coffee and orange juice in the morning

                                                            -A nice A/V set-up is available if you want to relax and watch a movie in the evening

                                                            -Close proximity to Haleiwa and its many dining options

                                                            -Even closer proximity to a full-service grocery store

                                                            -Thoughtful and tasteful decor compliment the home and make it feel more authentic and comfortable

                                                            Specific details aside, perhaps the most important thing is that Paul was incredibly gracious and communicative from the initial message I sent him inquiring about our stay all the way through the check-out process. He made sure we got into the house without any trouble, gave detailed instructions to make its amenities easier to use, and even gave us recommendations about what to do on the North Shore. I can't say enough good things about this property.

                                                            I will definitely be staying at Paul's house the next time I am on Oahu.

                                                            Cozy Location!!!

                                                            Christine W.

                                                            Away from the traffic but close to the beach. Great property and views. The pictures aren’t as good as being there. House was cozy, not too big, not too small for my family of 4 that includes 2 teenagers that like their space. Loved the floor plan. Couldn’t get enough of the open sliding doors and windows out to the lanai. Paul took the time to check in with us to see if we needed anything and was a quick text away if we had questions. Mahalo Paul for the welcome and we can’t wait to return again!!

                                                            Fantastic week at the North Shore!

                                                            Bill H.Brookline, Massachusetts

                                                            All the great things others have said in their reviews are completely true. This was my first VRBO rental and Paul made it easy. My favorite part of our group's reunion (we used to work together) was just visiting on the lanai. We found the house to be a perfect setting with stellar views of the ocean from inside and out. Going to sleep with surf sounds in the background - and traffic out of earshot - was wonderful. Surrounded by nature, the house is nicely appointed with antique charm, modern luxury, and very convenient. Any of us would happily rent the house and deal with Paul again. Favorite breakfast spot: Ted's.

                                                            Excellent place!

                                                            Eric S.

                                                            Very private, easy access to beaches and local stores. Paul was easy to deal with, very explanatory in his expectations and about the house.

                                                            Highly recommend this property to anyone wanting to enjoy the North Shore.

                                                            Wonderful relaxation

                                                            Just returned to the mainland after 6 fabulous nights at Paul’s plantation home. What a sweet little gem of a spot. Once you arrive, open all the sliding windows and doors and let the trade winds gently blow in, then relax to the sounds of the chickens and birds frolicking about the property. We had an incredible time exploring the amazing beaches and small towns. Make sure to visit the Waimea Bakery the food is amazing.
