Happy Haole Hale is very private and quiet. While the beach in front of the property is fairly stagnant, a pristine beach is less than five minutes away (20 minutes with kayak) which served as a setting for the box office's "Along Came Polly"s beach scenes. The picturesque surroundings are also in the box office hits "Jurassic Park" and "50 First Dates".
The home is about 1500 sqf and 2600 sqf with lanai, has 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, and is fully furnished. There is also a detached bedroom. The home is conveniently located nearly 45 minutes from Waikiki; 40 minutes from Honolulu airport; 50 minutes from North Shore.

Perfect. We couldn't have asked for a more lovely place to stay. We basked in every minute we could here...it was hard to leave to go exploring:)

I'm not sure there are enough superlatives for this house, this view, this experience. The photos are absolutely accurate- it IS really that beautiful. I feel very lucky to have been able to stay here and I WILL be back.
Rent this amazing home! You won't be sorry!

Loved, loved, loved our stay at Happy Haole Hale. I cannot describe the absolute beauty of the view from the lanai. My husband and I prefer to rent homes vs. staying in hotels (we stayed in Waikiki for business for 3 days) and stayed 5 in Happy Haole Hale. Although we stayed in a beautiful highrise penthouse in Waikiki (not on our dime only for business) we would have rather spent the entire time here. The home itself is a cross between a luxury tree house and Gilligan's Island retreat that will make you wish you were shipwrecked on this beautiful island and staying in this home. The detail and care that went into building the home were so appreciated--wonderful woodwork, views, bedrooms, kitchen, appliances, the list goes on. We made every meal except for one in the beautiful kitchen. The location is excellent (the lush tropical side of the island) and we traveled easily with our rental car around the island. We did not hear any street noise and although there are neighbors it was a quiet, peaceful location. The photos of the home are beautiful but don't compare to experiencing it in person. Everything was spotless and well supplied. The owner lives on the property and she is a delight, however she gives you space so that you don't even know she's there unless you have a question. We felt like the home was very private and secure. My husband and I have stayed in wonderful homes in Belize, St. John, and other locations, and this was my favorite. It worked for just my husband and I, however I'd love to bring the rest of our family someday as it has plenty of room. Be sure to venture over to the beaches nearby and to Kailua Ranch--both are so close and a wonderful experience. I can't say enough positive things about this vacation rental--if you stay here, you will surely feel the same.Read more
