About Mark and Star Jacobsen

As artists, we have filled our home with original works of art, not only of our own creation but also by friends and family or collected during our travels around the world. Creativity can be contagious in this tropical setting. We hope you catch it! Come, and be inspired.

Mark and Star Jacobsen purchased this house in 2008

Why Mark and Star Jacobsen chose Haleiwa

In addition to Hawaii, we have owned property in Sausalito, Sonoma and Santa Barbara, California. All fantastic, beautiful locations. This is the home we chose to retire to. The natural beauty of the North Shore is unsurpassable. Plus, we are beach people and we love to be in the water. There is no better place on earth for that than the crystalline warm waters of Hawaii.

What makes this house unique

Gated entry. Secure parking for two cars. A tropical garden paradise on over an acre. Quality accommodations including a gourmet kitchen. A secluded, serene setting with absolute privacy, breathtaking ocean views and incredible sunsets almost every evening.

Wonderful House!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this house. All the details and art work are amazing. The garden is wonderful and we enjoyed eating the star fruits, bananas, lemons and passion fruit from there. The house has spectacular views both in the day and night. The owners are amazing human beings! The house is comfortable, clean and has everything we needed during our stay. Mark and Star thank you for sharing your piece of paradise. Aloha!! Rodrigo Lima and family.

gorgeous property, with a view to die for....

  • 5 of 5

do not let the location up on pupukea deter you from staying here! the house is gorgeous (although with the massive deck, there's no reason to be inside), the grounds are lovely, the pool is a convenient alternative to the ocean, and the view is SPECTACULAR!

i have been renting n the North Shore for over 20 years, and this is one of my favorite experiences. yes, you have to drive down the hill for beach access, but that is a nominal hassle considering all the positives of this property!

i would definitely stay here again, and hope it will be soon.

Amazing Pupukea home

  • 5 of 5

This home was in a beautiful area of the North Shore of Oahu and sits up on a hill that offers stellar views of the ocean. The home has a wrap around lanai with comfortable chairs and a dining table to allow serene morning coffee or jovial dinners with your fellow guests. The outdoor pool has a half bath and shower and afforded us hours of fun. The best part of this property is the outdoors where you will find fruit trees and many varieties of local flora as you listen to the chirping of many species of beautiful birds. Some of the nicest and most diverse beaches are only 5 minutes away by car. Incredible Waimea Falls is only about 5 minutes away. The inside of the property is well attended with nearly every convenience you will need. There are lots of beach toys and beach towels provided. Mark and Star were excellent hosts and immediately took care of any issues we had. We would not hesitate to book this home again!

A little slice of Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

What an idyllic setting, a spacious and well laid out 3 bedroom house with wrap around deck and view of the ocean which is hard to beat. Watching the sunsets each evening after a lazy day swimming and lounging by the pool - hard to beat. The grounds and surroundings make this setting very private, it's like an oasis - you would hardly know there were any neighbours.

We dIdn't need to use the air conditioning during our stay (April) as the breezes and the fans within the house were more than sufficient. The kitchen is fully equipped and we enjoyed the use of the BBQ most nights. With Foodland about a 5 minute drive away, and Costco enroute from Waikiki, we were well stocked. The beaches are within minutes of the house but when you see the pool, you may not want to leave!

Mark was a pleasure to deal with, very responsive, and the instructions were clear. House is fully equipped with most everything you could need and we would highly recommend at least a week here if you are visiting the North Shore of O'ahu.

We'd love to return in future!

Beautiful and comfortable property

  • 5 of 5

Mark and Star have made this property is a vacationer's dream. It is full of original paintings, sculptures and artifacts that delight you in every room! It has been one of the most comfortable, yet elegant property that we have stayed. The view is to die for. We loved the house and recommend it to anyone who would like a private resort getaway!

Oahu's North Shore is the surf mecca of the world but there is much more than the incredible surf that makes this place so special. Our home is ideally situated in the middle of it all: world class diving and snorkling in Shark's Cove, one of only two marine life preserves on the island, is just minutes away. Beautiful white sand beaches stretch for miles in all directions. A two thousand acre wilderness area opens just two blocks from the house with hundreds of biking and hiking trails. Two world class golf courses are just 15 minutes away at the Turtle Bay Resort. Zip Line, fishing, sailing, fine dining, shopping, horse back riding, and more are all within easy reach of this secluded vacation home. The North Shore of Oahu has the look and feel of a remote outer island - rural, quiet and historic - yet it is only an hour drive to Honolulu with its international airport, teaming nightlife, museums and rich cultural venues. This is a unique location in Hawaii where you can truly have it all!
