About the property

4 bedroom. 4 bathroom stunning views on your own 2 acre estate!


This expansive, BRAND NEW, two story, 4 bedroom, 4 bath Hawaii ranch-style home sits perched on two and a half acres and is in a safe, gated neighborhood on the north shore of Oahu. It is the perfect OHANA (family) home, with something for everyone. This home is ideal for a multi-generational family or two families. Youngsters can enjoy the downstairs surf-themed bunk bedroom, ping pong table, basketball hoop & TV area; while adults relax on the second floor deck and enjoy the sights and sounds of rolling waves on the horizon.

The open concept kitchen area, with Bosch appliances, stunning views, and ample island seating provides the perfect gathering place for friends and family. While the home's design is reminiscent of old Hawaii, it still features all of the stylish, modern touches to create your ideal and comfortable home away from home.

Expansive wrap around decks and views from every window are what make this home extraordinary. Whether it is grazing horses, crashing blue waves, or lush mountainside-these views do not disappoint! It takes only minutes to WALK to the beach from the home. Snorkle, sunbathe, collect shells, then walk home to pick some fresh fruit from the many trees on property or relax in the hot tub with an ocean view. Enclosed outdoor shower with hot and cold water provides the perfect way to rinse off under blue, Hawaii skies after a day of exploring nearby beaches. Split A/C units in each bedroom deliver cool escape during warm, tropical evenings.

Property is just minutes away from famed north shore beaches like Sunset, Waimea, and Pipeline. If you are looking to get a taste of true Oahu north shore beauty and charm, look no further than "Kawela Ranch Paradise."

About Lise Krivatsy

We are an active family of 5, living on the South Shore of Oahu. Raising our children in the islands has been a blessing. Kawela Ranch is a special place where we can get away to reconnect with one another and at the same time enjoy country surf, sun, beauty and charm. We have thoroughly enjoyed being able to share the "aloha spirit" and open our home to other families who are looking for a truly authentic north shore, Oahu experience.

Lise Krivatsy purchased this house in 2014

Why Lise Krivatsy chose Kahuku

Waikiki may be for some, but growing up on Oahu, we truly appreciate the peace and tranquility of the north shore. The minute we drive into the private subdivision, see the horses, and breathe in the country air we know we are HOME. If we want to head out to surf, dine, or adventure it is all just minutes away in either direction... but coming home to this oasis is what true island living is all about!

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with this piece of land the second we laid eyes on it. The views and country feel capture the essence of true Hawaii living. When we designed and built the home, we made sure it tied in with the natural landscape and took advantage of views in every direction. At night, the stars are crystal clear and the sounds of rolling waves create the perfect lullaby.

Lemons, limes, papayas and bananas are grown on property and free for our guest's enjoyment. Kawela Ranch is indeed a unique getaway in one of the most beautiful spots on Oahu.You won't regret staying at this home!

Beautiful home and location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our visit to the North shore. This house was perfect for our large group. There was plenty of room for everyone and the ping pong table was a huge hit with the kids. We loved eating our meals on the deck looking out at the ocean. Lise was so helpful. Any time we had a question she was there to help. She gave us awesome recommendations for places that might accommodate large groups as we had many more relatives in Hawaii for our cousin’s wedding. She gave us recommendations for deep sea fishing, where we caught 10 skipjack tuna, and for beach parks where family could get together. We enjoyed our trip so much and would love to come back in the future. This amazing house is at the top of our list! Thank you Lise and family for sharing your lovely home. 😊?

Lovely home!!

  • 5 of 5

What a great house! Nestled between the mountains and the water, the property is tucked away from the hustle and bustle. We enjoyed mornings and evenings on the deck listening to the water and watching the horses in the pastures. Lise helped from start to finish!! Great property owner!! Such a pleasure!!

Island dreams come true!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home with our 8 children ages 6 months to 15 years and it was amazing. The home is every bit as beautiful as it looks in the pictures. We loved the central North Shore location and didn't have to go far for amazing beaches and great food. The property itself was beautiful, clean and modern. We especially loved having so much outdoor space. It was nice to be across the street from a beautiful beach that was great for walks, and less than 5 minutes from several other beaches that provided snorkeling, awesome waves, and a kid friendly bay. We loved eating breakfast in the mornings on the deck and we enjoyed the hot tub and outdoor shower every night. The house was stocked with everything we needed including boogie boards, beach chairs, and even some family games. Lise went above and beyond to make our stay great and was so kind and easy to work with. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to enjoy the slower pace on the North shore. Book it! You won't be disappointed.

Owner's Response: This review really means a lot and is exactly why we decided to open up our home and share it with families like yours! So happy to hear you enjoyed the beach across the street- it really is a treasure. We also love the slower pace of the north shore- truly what island living is all about. Please come visit us again :) Lise

Beautiful property, great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a multigenerational family vacation: grandparents, sons and their wives as well as 5 grandchildren. The home easily accommodated all 11 of us nicely. The weather wasn't what we had hoped during our 12-day stay, so when it was raining in Kahuku, we just drove to another part of the island where we could enjoy some sunshine. It actually allowed us to see different areas that we otherwise likely wouldn't have explored.

Our sons and 3 of our grandchildren took the shark-diving trip out of Haliewa and loved it! We also snorkeled at several beaches but Shark's Cove was the best. A couple days were spent at Ko Olina on the beach, about a 45 minute drive. We also explored all the local beaches. The kids really enjoyed body surfing and boogie boarding at Hukilau Beach park. It's a beautiful park with a lot of grassy areas and a couple of old rope swings. But, there's no restroom.

We also went to opening day at the Hawaii Polo Club, which was so much fun. They had several amazing food trucks as well as a band following the match. Worth the short drive if you're in the area during polo season!

Overall, we loved our stay. The owners were most accommodating and helpful in every way. Lise responded immediately to our texts or emails. We found the home to be very clean and well-appointed. We would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Becky for this thoughtful review and for taking such good care of our home! How wonderful that you made the most of the rainy weather and explored the island. I really enjoyed hearing about all of your fun family adventures- an action packed 12 days for sure! We look forward to hosting you again in the future. Me Ke Aloha, The Krivatsys

Amazing house

  • 5 of 5

The house and surrounding property were beautiful and just as pictured. The house was in a wonderful location on the North Shore and was a perfect setting for our large family. It had everything we needed for a great vacation. The owner was so helpful and a pleasure to work with. If we come back to Oahu we would not stay anywhere else. Many thanks to Lise for a wonderful stay!

Located on the North Shore of Oahu, between Sunset Beach and Turtle Bay, this newly built ranch style home offers a true Hawaii country experience. Charming Haleiwa town delivers wonderful dining and shopping options and is just a 15 minute drive from the property. Snorkeling, horseback riding, eco tours, surf lessons, and zip lining are just some of the activities offered nearby.

During the winter months, pack a picnic and head west a couple of miles to watch surfers from all over the world brave the spectacular and often monstrous waves. The 'Vans Triple Crown of Surfing' series is referred to as the jewel of professional surfing and attracts international media attention each year. With heavy waves and heavy wipeouts, these contests provide some serious and exciting spectator entertainment.

The Polynesian Cultural Center- a Polynesian themed theme park and living museum is also a 15 minute drive away. Plan an authentic luau experience and then head home to put your feet up on the deck and enjoy the serene views from the house.

Turtle Bay Resort is a few minutes by car down the road from the home. Dine at Lei Lei's Bar and Grill (our favorite family stop), organize a horseback riding tour, plan a spa day, or tee it up on one of the resort's two premier golf courses!

If you don't want to drive anywhere, you can WALK about 5 minutes to Waiale'e Beach and spend the day enjoying this less crowded north shore gem. With great tide pooling and snorkeling conditions, especially in the summer, this beach is a family favorite!

Kawela Ranch has access to all of the North Shore's surf, buzz, adventure, and excitement- but still offers the quiet, laid back escape that will allow you to fully relax on your vacation. You really can't beat this home's location, where Hawaii north shore adventure meets true country paradise!
