Overview

Property Details

Updated: Nov 25, 2014
House, 5 Bedrooms + Loft, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 10-14)

Hawaii 5-0 recently filmed here (DEC 2010) Mountains, valley, and a ranch next door and the Pacific Ocean surfing beach just across the road!

Located on Oahu's east shores, next to Kualoa Ranch, Hale Kaaawa offers a views of the Pacific Ocean and spectacular views of Kaaawa Valley and mountains. During the early evening, you can view the pink clouds of the sunset over the mountains. The morning brings a vibrant sunrise you can view from your private deck.

This house is located in a secluded area that affords complete privacy. The property and surrounding area have the feel of Old Hawaii and appear to have stood still in time. Tall trees sway in the breeze, as you stroll the beach across the narrow country road. The main front deck allows you a spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean and the majestic mountains and valley as your backyard.

If you want a flavor of the real Hawaii, you have it here! You may even be lucky enough to see an occasional whale during whale season, Turtles also frequent the area and you may catch glimpses of them close to shore.

My Son's Wedding...

My Son's Wedding...
  • 5 of 5
My son was married on Valentine's Day this year at Kualoa Ranch. Although we live in Oahu- we needed to house our family from off-island. Puhala house is exactly as the ad states- everything we needed for my son's friends;Groomsman;Best Man was available. The wedding was only a 5 minute drive but we were able to get ready quickly and enjoy this special day. And then relax the next day on the beach across the road. Thank you Arish for your hospitality- we will be back next year for a family reunion.

Puhala House

  • 5 of 5
My family was looking for a North Shore property that could fit 10 adults and 2 kids, and the Puhala House definitely was very spacious with lots of bathrooms, great loft area, huge yard for kids, and ample parking (2-car garage and concrete driveway). We never felt cramped even with so many folks. The views from the front and back decks were absolutely phenomena, and we spent tons of time on the huge back deck. It was a very peaceful and remote location with no real neighbors. However, it is on Kam Hwy so although there are trees/shrubs blocking the house from the main road, you can still see and hear cars. The traffic speeds along that straightaway so pulling out was really dicey and the driveway was difficult to find at night. Kitchens were well stocked, new W/D, new flat screen TVs, free wifi, BBQ on the patio, and plenty of beach towels were very helpful! It really did have a lot of amenities. The skinny stretch of beach across from the house is on the highway and is not a swimming beach, though nice for walks. The property manager lives nearby and was very helpful before, during and after the rental. The house has good bones but the interior could definitely benefit from cleaning/updating of the furnishings and a few repairs. We relayed those issues to the property manager. All in all, it was a good fit for our family and we had a wonderful Christmas holiday there.

Owner's Response: thanx for taking the time to write a review of this property. I am glad you enjoyed your stay. I as a property manager try my best to make sure our guests are happy and the house is in order. However I wanted to stress that the beach across the street is great for walks, swimming,surfing,boogie boarding and for snorkeling. Directly out front of the property is more for snorkeling. We hope to have you back.

This house is the perfect location! The views are fantastic! The house was ideal for us...even a little more than we needed! The property manager was prompt and very helpful and friendly...(even though we did not have the need to see her often - since the house was set up exactly as we needed! They had plenty of beach towels available for use and some other items previous guest had left behind. I would recommend this location....even though we were there at the "busy" time...we were fortunate with travel times. Ideal location...approximately 40 minutes from Waikiki Beach, 40 Minutes from the North Shore, and 40 minutes from the Ko-Olina area! Would highly recommend to anyone! The house is in need of some updating interior wise ....we choose to overlook those needs considering the location and the amount of time we were actually there.

EXCELLENT!

  • 5 of 5
This home was beyond my expectations! Beautifully kept, property's yard was perfect for the kids to run wild and the lower level's like a house of its own. The setting's breath taking and the house was very well equipped. I definitely recommend this home to anyone wanting to stay away from the touristy areas and the privacy of the home's wonderful! As my first experience away from Waikiki I will never stay in Waikiki in my future visits again. Living with the locals is the way to go! This house is most definitely worth staying in and I highly recommend Papa Oles if you're in Ha'ula. Best garlic shrimp I've ever had!

Our summer vacation

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed 7 nights at the Puhala vacation home. We often vacation with our best friends and this was to be a wonderful trip. With our a 5 kids (ages 10 to 21) and their 6 kids (ages 12 to 21) we aren't easily accommodated. This house was awesome! It is everything the description showed. The hiking was indeed the best perk.
Arish was very gracious and helpful. We so enjoyed our stay at Puhala and would recommend this property to others.
We enjoyed the North Shore and the Kuluha Ranch sunset dinner.

Huge Home

  • 5 of 5
My Fiance and I reside in Honolulu, Hawaii and we rented the Puhala home out in Ka'a'awa, Hawaii from Thursday, 7/16/2010 thru Monday, 7/19/2010. We were getting married at one of the Kualoa Ranch's private properties called Moli'i Gardens on 7/17/2010 and the Puhala home was less than a 5 minute drive away. This was a perfect place, because we got to do the following:

Friday, 7/16/2010 - We held our after rehearsal barbeque for the entourage at the Puhala home.
Saturday, 7/17/2010 - Female entourage got ready on the top portion of the home and the male entourage got ready on the bottom portion of the home. It worked out perfectly!
Sunday, 7/18/2010 - We went for a hike on the trail where they filmed a bunch of movies and spent the entire day enjoying the Puhala home.
Monday, 7/19/2010 - Back to reality... had to say our good-bye's to this beautiful home.

The bottom portion of the house has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. It has a living room, eating area, a fully equipped kitchen, 2 car garage with a washer and dryer, and small two porches. There is one TV which is located in the living room. Not to mention, the land surrounding the property is huge! It's cutely updated and modern looking.

The upper portion of the house has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. It has a living room, eating area and a fully equipped kitchen, internet connection, two lanai's (one facing the ocean and one facing the mountains), and an immaculate loft on the 3rd floor overlooking the ocean. There's a small TV in the master bedroom and large flat screen TV up in the loft. The upper portion definitely needs some updating. However, the immaculate views of the mountains really make up for it.

Pros: The immaculate view of the mountains, seeing the two horses near the backyard, the upper portion back lanai, and the fact that this house can hold 10-14 people comfortably.

Cons: It was hard getting out onto the highway, because the bushes were obstructing our view of the oncoming traffic when pulling out of the home. We hope that they can trim the bushes further in for future renters.

The listing was accurate regarding the location. The photos accurately reflect the rental's appearance and amenities. The property was clean and maintained. The agent, Arish was wonderful in answering any questions or concerns. All in all, our guests were amazed at the property and so were we.
