I am in a rush as I have just arrived back to the mainland and have a ton of work to catch up on, but I didn't want too much time to pass before I got around to telling you how much my husband and I LOVED your home. We have already started telling all of our friends and family about how wonderful it was (as well as scheming about ways that we could get back there someday!). It was a perfect respite for the weekend, and we absolutely adore your taste and what you've done with the entire space.

Thanks for making our trip to Hawaii even more relaxing and memorable.

Beyond Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

First and foremost Todd is an amazing and accommodating host! We decided to spend our wedding/honeymoon here and noticed great attention to detail (even down to the authentic Herman Miller chairs that are nowhere in mention)!! This place is more amazing than the photos as they do not do the property justice and is incredibly priced with just a short drive from the best beaches North Shore has to offer. Excellent wifi connection, beautiful and private tropical views. Outside shower is a huge plus as well as the gourmet kitchen. A/C is NOT needed as crosswinds flow through the house effortlessly. Everything you need has been carefully considered and is already provided (we used the coffee grinder and maker every morning, also beach umbrellas/cooler, body boards, grill, etc.). We are already planning a trip back here to show our friends/family what an outstanding property and hidden gem this really is! If you are considering booking this place do not hesitate - you will not be disappointed ( in fact, you will be pleasantly surprised)!

An absolute gem - beautiful hillside home!

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this property. Dealing with Todd was a joy - my only comment is that he actually under-rated the beauty and tranquility of his house and its surroundings. The hillside house is beautifully appointed, and Todd has thought of everything to make your stay comfortable. The views from every room are amazing, and you feel as though you are perched in a tree-house in the middle of a lush jungle. The kitchen had all the amenities of a gourmet kitchen and we enjoyed staying in and cooking on several nights during our stay. In the mornings, it was great waking up early and going for a hike in the area before driving down to the beach for the day. And the best snorkeling beaches are just a few minutes away! I traveled with my husband and our college-aged daughter, and we all agreed that this was one of the best vacations our family ever had.

Private and Quiet, Beautiful, Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

The house was really terrific. An architectural masterpiece, beautifully placed on a gated lot with an absolutely unique the "Jungle" view. Enchanting. We enjoyed jogging up the quiet road and also made a wonderful loop hike including the Kaunala trail. The beaches near the house were real favorites for all of us, most of all with our kids. We snorkeled, swam with turtles, and played in the surf. The Foodland grocery store near the house made shopping a breeze and the proximity to other towns and even Honolulu really made this the best stay we've ever had on any of the Hawaiian islands. We were a bit worried about the lack of AC, but the location of the house brings in very consistent cool breezes and we really did not miss it. The house was also very well supplied. Towels, soaps, paper supplies, you name it. Also Excellent TV and Wifi, washing machine, dishwasher, and an outdoor shower for rinsing off after the beach. Thanks for being more thoughtful than the typical vacation rental. We hope to be back in the future!

Gorgeous quiet retreat

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with my husband, mother and father over the holiday season and loved it! It was perfect for the four of us and very peaceful as it's nestled in a lush rain forest. Waimea beach is only 5 minutes drive and it's close to Foodlands down the road which was perfect for food and wine. Would recommend it to anyone who travels to the North Shore!

Pupukea Ranch Style House

  • 5 of 5

This place is great! Very comfortable and private. Beautifully situated on the edge of tropical forest preserve. Great spot for hiking, biking and running all within a mile or so of the North Shore's fantastic beaches. Highly Recommended!

Amazing Relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have found a better house to enjoy our honeymoon on Oahu's North Shore. Lucky score! For those who wish to truly get away and be in a peaceful island jungle setting with plenty of privacy, this is the place. Very well thought out design of house and interior. Easy comfortable living; with neat original touches throughout. Gated property offers a secure sense of well being and solitude. Drive up the hill from the coolest stretch of the North Shore beaches is a treat every time because the expansive view is panoramic beauty. Most of our stay was chilling out at the house enjoying the floor to ceiling window views peering into the jungle forest. Plenty of sun and rain and calm. Thanks again Todd for a real hidden gem! Be back as soon as we can!
