About Lisa K
We are an active family of 5, living, playing and working hard in Honolulu, Hawaii. 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.
Lisa K purchased this House in 2014
Why Lisa K 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, mangos 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!

We had an awesome family vacation in this beautiful house! It was the perfect size for our big family. Plenty of room for everyone especially on the lanai... that was our favorite spot to hang out! It had an amazing view & was a nice spot to enjoy our dinner!
Montana to Kahuku and back
What an amazing property! It reminded us of the Big Sky Country (Montana), but near the ocean. The remote location was perfectly located on Oahu's popular North Shore. We were conveniently near several small towns, beaches and amenities. Our family especially loved the open and spacious balcony views of the ocean shore line and serene pastures with horses contently grazing. The house utilizes the island trade winds to effectively cool the main living areas with additional AC units located in the bedrooms. The tasteful interior decoration was relaxing and family friendly. Lise checked on us multiple times to make sure we were able to access the house and found everything okay. We also followed several of her recommendations for local restaurants and shopping. All were helpful and wonderful referrals. The beach was just a short walk down a beautifully landscaped driveway and across the street. We watch many amazing sunsets in the beach chairs provided by the homeowner. If one wants a quiet remote, private home to relax and enjoy the offerings of the North Shore, this is the spot to stay!
This review meant so much to our whole family! Thank you so much for the positive feedback and for taking excellent care of our special north shore home. I love the comparison to Montana! Hopefully we can make it out your way one day soon- it's on our list :)
Aloha & A hui hou!
Perfect place to stay for family
Beautiful, clean And spacious home. 2 story with 2 bedrooms on each floor, 4 bathrooms and large kitchen with huge island to hang out around. A top deck with great seating and place to eat outside. We would stay here again. Homeowners were super helpful and lovely to work with. Loved our vacation.
Mahalo from our ohana to yours for this wonderful review! We are so happy that our special corner of north shore paradise could be the backdrop for your Hawaii getaway.
Me Ke Aloha,
Awesome family vacation spot! Property was clean and as advertised. We are looking forward to a return trip.

Me Ke Aloha!

Mahalo, Kayla! It was such a pleasure hosting your family on the beautiful north shore of Oahu! We are so happy to hear that our home could serve as a comfortable and relaxing backdrop for your Oahu vacation. The magical views and wide open spaces are definitely a rare find here in the islands. Please let us know the next time you plan a Hawaii getaway :)
Aloha for now!
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!
