About the property

Amazing tree houses surrounded by flowers/trees overlooking world famous beaches

Welcome to our beautiful property overlooking a world famous north shore beach, which is a crown jewel of the surfing universe. This property has several unique rentals all in their own private areas...this particular listing is for our Bungalow tree house which is up about 80 steps. We are 30+ year residents and we love to share our local knowledge to make your stay truly amazing! We have a dedicated resident manager who is also a certified yoga teacher on call to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. The private tree house rentals are unlike anything else that we know of. We have hundreds of 5 star reviews from guests that have stayed with us we can direct you to elsewhere online. Climb a stone path winding up through lush green foliage and black lava rock, past bamboo, organic fruit and flower trees to your tree house illuminated by filtered sunlight through the tropical canopy. Fall asleep to the lullaby of waves and awaken to birdsong in the trees, and amazing ocean views. Check the surf from your private deck. *INCLUDED IN PRICE: Surfboards of all types (including Stand up Paddle boards), bicycles, and snorkel gear. We do all forms of wave riding (surf, kite,windsurf,stand-up,big wave tow-ins) and have friends that offer guided instruction if needed we can set you up with them. Many guests return to our tree houses each year because they are very unique but feel like home. All of our employees have a great attitude and are happy to help with anything. If you have any questions feel free to ask! We look forward to hosting you at this amazing property. Rates are based on 2 guests (additional charge of $30/night may apply for 3rd guest, 4th, etc). We offer a special rate with considerable savings if paying with a specific payment method, inquire for details!

Aloha and mahalo!

About John Thompson

I've been a North Shore resident since the mid 1970s. I enjoy facilitating my guests search (for whatever it might be) to make their vacation a special one!

John Thompson purchased this house in 1989

Why John Thompson chose Haleiwa

As you will garner from our reviews, we have unique tree houses with the quiet private feature but close enough to the surf (1-2 minute bicycle ride or 5 min. walk) to keep it exciting. There are bicycles, surfboards, stand up paddle boards, snorkel gear and a large communal yoga deck for any guests interested! We also have an on site yoga teacher so please inquire for the schedule when you make your reservation!

What makes this house unique

This hillside is our home, we have seen it transform over the years into a beautiful hillside oasis. Our trees were planted many years ago and they are blessing us with abundance! We respect our guests privacy and if you need anything, we are around! Our spot has been transformative for many over the years…great spot for a getaway vacation experience, with the optional surf/yoga/organic gardening vibe for those with an interest! Aloha

Perfect Spot

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect way to experience the North Shore. Our hosts were easily acessible and friendly. Our suite was just the right level of comfort and connection with nature and left us feeling connected to Hawaii both with the land and the people. And it was a wonderful view to enjoy the beach after a day of swimming in it. Located in a very clean and safe small housing area. Loved it. Would definitely return.

Spectacular Tree House!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I had such an amazing stay at the Temple tree house. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for calm and relaxing stay. The sounds of the birds, waves and rain at night left us feeling relaxed and zen. Will definitely try to come back and stay longer.

We had a wonderful time staying at the Surf Cabin. Beautiful views, attentive staff & super location

  • 5 of 5

The Surf Cabin was perfect for us for two nights. The exercise going up and down the lava steps helped work off some of the serious food we inhaled at the local food trucks. The term "glamping" probably does best describe this "glamour camping" experience. We needed a quieter slow pace for a couple of days and that is exactly what we got. We used all of the Surf equipment, the bikes to ride to Teds Bakery & the coolers. We even liked the eco-friendly tingly soap, shampoo & conditioner that was provided. Thank you John Thompson, Basil & staff for sharing your retreat with us. We plan on coming back.

Incredible place. A real feel of the north shore.

  • 5 of 5

The tree house experience was incredible. An amazing place with beautiful senery. It was wonderful to wake up to the sounds of birds chirping, roosters and ocean waves. Conveniently located next to the sunset beach. It was great to use the bikes and snorkel gear. We had a wonderful time watching the sunset on the balcony each night. Would definitely stay again if given the chance. 🤙?
