About the property


The North Shore of Oahu...

What more can be said about this world renown location in beautiful Hawaii. Whether it's the extreme adventure of skydiving or glider flight, the excitement of surfing, snorkeling, hiking or fishing and then again maybe a relaxing round of golf or just a long walk on one of the many beaches capped off with an incredible sunset, the North Shore of Oahu has it all.

Located far away from the crowds, noise and congestion of Honolulu and Waikiki.

Hale O Kaunala is on a 6 acre family property that is a quiet and private. It is a Hawaiian getaway in a unique tropical setting. Just few minutes to the beach from our 400 square foot studio is fully furnished. It has a queen sized bed and other necessities including a flat screen television and high speed internet service. We also have lots of parking, private road and a large yard for barbecuing or just kicking back and enjoying the tropical paradise.

We invite you to be our guest for a memorable Hawaiian vacation.

Why Marie Rathburn chose North Shore Oahu

My husband and his family has has been on the North Shore since the early 1900. We recently acquired this property from his parents and transformed it into a working farm. Now it's flourished with Avocados, Mangoes, Papayas, Bananas trees and several citrus & exotic fruit trees.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife and I stayed here for 9 days on a recent business/vacation trip. We opted to get out of the overcrowded downtown and stay on the north shore. We had a wonderful experience. Marie and Alec made us feel like part of their family. Even the neighbors welcomed us to their community. We felt so safe here that we left the sliding door open every night. The cross ventilation in the room along with the tropical breezes and ceiling fans kept us cool and comfortable. This is hands down the best place to stay in Oahu. When we arrived Marie greeted us with a fresh platter of papaya and lychee fruits. With the many fruit trees in their backyard we had fresh fruit for our entire stay. I really enjoyed the apple bananas and the lychee nuts right off the tree. Marie is quite an accomplished chef. She shared her recipes for her Kahlua pork and mango salsa which are to die for. The back porch was our favorite hangout. It has a nice granite topped table and comfortable chairs that look out on a green paradise filled with flowering plants and fruit trees. For hikers, there are many well maintained trails all around the area. For surfers and beach lovers, it doesn't get any better than here. The Pipeline and Sunset Beach are just minutes away. If you prefer more traditional tourist attractions the Dole Plantation, Polynesian Cultural Center, Green World Coffee Farm and several other smaller local attractions are all within a 15 mile radius of this property. We particularly enjoyed visiting one of the smaller, more private rocky beaches just 5 minutes away. The high speed Internet was easy to connect to with all our devices. The bandwidth was excellent measuring 20 MB down and 5 MB up indicating a good cable connection. I was able to open a VPN tunnel and access servers at my business in Florida with no issues at all. Ted's bakery is around the corner and offers a wide range of tasty items. If you prefer to cook, as we did, there is a Foodland supermarket just down the street. Foodland is a fully stocked supermarket and also offers a large selection of beer, wine and other spirits. There was a Foodland discount card attached to the room key. There is also a nice gas grill available which we used several times. Our suite was comfortable and we woke up every morning to the sounds of birds and other wildlife. It was much better than listening to cars and traffic noise. If you want to experience Hawaii like a local then look no further.

Enjoyed fresh fruit from the garden, conversations with the landlord, and the peacefulness of the location. We always felt that we and our belongings were safe since the Landlord was present and visible during our stay.

Northshore Fun

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice stay. The apartment was little but there was plenty of room for my husband and I. I liked the open shower. The only thing I didn't care for was sharing a clothes dryer with the other renter, we seemed to want to do laundry at the same time. We would definitely stay here again the apartment was quiet and clean.

In spite of incredible rainfall the night before arrival and very heavy area flooding, these two provided a wonderful warm and dry apt for our use! Mahalo !!
