About the property

North Shore paradise! PRISTINE two story, 4 bedroom, 4 bath w/ 2 living areas.

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 a this home!

Amazing home in a spectacular setting!

  • 5 of 5

We had a large family group gathering for my son's graduation from Chaminade University. The house was clean, modern, spacious and so welcoming and homey. My kids all enjoyed playing basketball, ping-pong, board games on the patio, and sitting in the hot tub after a long day out. We had everything we needed for quality family time. We were able to cook many of our own meals, since going out with such a large group would have been difficult and there was a grocery store about 5-10min away. We enjoyed going to the beach within walking distance from the property, as well as Waimea beach. Horseback riding was only a 5 minute drive away at Turtle Bay and the Polynesian Cultural Center (and Luau) was a fun outing as well (so much to do there you could stay the whole day). We did have to deal with a lot of traffic since there was a big surf competition the week we were there, and if you want to travel to the Waikiki area for anything, plan ahead, as it will take a while to get there. Overall, we had a wonderful time and would definitely recommend it. Lise was a wonderful and very attentive host!

Mahalo to the Krivatsy family for sharing your home!

Wonderful house, great location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here. The house was great for our group of 10, and we really enjoyed the location on the North Shore right near both calm beaches and some famous surf breaks. Lise was extremely available to us throughout our stay and had useful recommendations and pointers like nearby running trails and great hikes. Thank you for a lovely family holiday!

The beaches and hikes in the area are some of the finest on the island- so glad you enjoyed them together as a family. Do let us know when you plan your next Hawaii adventure :) Warm Aloha, The Krivatsy Ohana

Vacation Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We went to the North Shore to celebrate and commemorate my late husband's life. We had previously lived on Oahu and loved our family time there. Our family and close friends stayed at this beautiful, private, peaceful home and couldn't be happier with our choice. Lise was friendly, accommodating, and responsive. She made it as easy as it could possibly be to feel at home in her home. The house and property are stunning. Nobody wanted to leave. I could go on and on about how wonderful Lise and this property were, but I will leave it with my highest recommendation--if we ever return to the North Shore, I wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else.

Owner's Response: Dear Sheri, We are truly appreciate the kind words and we are honored that you chose our home to be part of such a special celebration for your husband. You were wonderful to work with from start to finish. We certainly look forward to your next visit out to the isles! A Hui Hou, Lise & Family

Spectacular home with a wonderful host!

  • 5 of 5

Even with how beautiful these pictures look, they don't do the home justice. The house itself is so clean and homey, with breathtaking views to offer at every point in the day. You can see the mountains and the beach all from the comfort of the patio. It easily and comfortably fit our very large group and provided us with very helpful amenities, such as the grill, outdoor shower, and basketball hoop, that made our stay even more enjoyable. Working with Lise made the stress of planning a vacation disappear. Not only did she save us from an overbooking disaster with the first house we booked, she openly offered various suggestions of things to do in the area and was so welcoming toward our family. Everything about our stay was absolutely fantastic. We hope to come back someday!

Car: recommended

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!
