About Kirk Caldwell
We love the North Shore of Oahu, magical, peaceful and spectacular! I think you will love it too. This particular house truly has an amazing mana. 'Mana' is the Hawaiian word for energy. I know you might think it sounds weird, however, once you experience it, you will know what I mean.
Why Kirk Caldwell chose Haleiwa
I used to deliver yachts around the world and this is truly one of the most incredible places on this planet. Come see for yourself!

Samuel was a great host and the location and house was perfect for our family. Plenty of room and you feel like you’re in a treehouse in jungle. Looking forward to our next stay!
This property in the North Shore is at the best location. It's right in front of 3 Tables and a quick walk to Pupukea, our 2 most favorite beaches there. And so close to Foodland. The home is very spacious and comfortable. Our family had a wonderful stay here.
Nice large house close to the beach
Large Indonesian-style house. We got slightly lost trying to find it due to the address not being on our printed-out material when we had no internet and had foreign phones with expensive data.We then had a bit of trouble with opening the key-safe but got in OK in the end. Large spacious house with high rafters (some of the high bolts looked pretty loose!). The low wall partitions between the rooms meant that every small noise (think bathrooms and bedrooms) could be heard throughout the house. No air-conditioning made the house very hot in the late afternoon and the roosters started at about 4.00am (a bit later when it was raining). Other than that, the house was comfortable and fairly well supplied (a vacuum cleaner for the glass my daughter broke may have prevented 3 of us getting tiny glass fragments in our feet.There may have been one but we couldn't find it.) Took a couple of days to find the kitchen sink plug and detergent (they were outside!) and there was no dish brush or pot scourer. The kitchen area was spacious and well equipped with crockery and glassware. It was a pity that a kitchen that size didn't have a dishwasher. The bedrooms and bathrooms were well presented, clean and well made up. There was some snorkelling gear, beach umbrella and chairs and boogie boards there for use (which we availed ourselves of). The local beaches were great... Three Tables Beach very handy, Shark's Cove about 500m north had good snorkelling with lots of fish( as in fact did Three Tables) and Waimea Bay had beautiful sand and clear water (and rock jumping for some). The Foodland Pupukea shop was also handy for getting groceries.
We had a really good stay and while some things were unable to be resolved (the roosters), an airconditioner and dishwasher would certainly have helped. Overall we still give it 4 stars as it was a great base.
wonderful retreat, conveniently located, great for families
Our family of 6 (4 teenagers) loved our recent stay at Luana II and were sorry to leave. The house was spacious, clean and close to all that the north shore has to offer. Samuel gave us some helpful tips which added to our enjoyment. We managed to see some of the Banzai pipeline competition which was awesome! We had a couple of rainy days which didn't stop us from doing anything. Waimea Bay is beautiful but make sure you are surf aware before jumping in - the waves have a lot of power behind them (perhaps this is a winter thing though)! We went horseriding at Gunstock Ranch, swimming with the sharks through North Shore Shark Adventures, snorkelling, paddle boarding, kayaking, and shopping at Haleiwa and did our own amazing race around the maze at the Dole plantation. We had a few drives and had a great half day at the Polynesian Cultural Centre in Laie - more fun than I thought it was going to be. Make sure you try the food trucks (Souvaly at Haleiwa was stunning) and had a beautiful meal at Jameson's on our last evening. While we were there Samuel brought around new mattress toppers for the beds which made them even more comfortable. He cares about his visitors! I highly recommend this lovely house and can testify that the photos are accurate. We are dreaming of a return visit.
Yes, I actually LOVE my visitors and care very much that they have a spectacular stay at my properties!! You guys were great and AMAZING that you did SO much during your time here!!
Please consider coming back when you need some more paradise time, we'd love to have you....
And, I tried those mattress toppers after you left....WOW!!
They are amazing.
I got them from Hyatt Regency off Amazon since a friend of mine said that when she slept on them it was the most comfortable night sleep she has ever had....and she was right....
It's Christmas day here and I am treating myself to a surf!!
Mele Kalkikimaka to the entire family!!
Even thinking about your home now makes me relax and kind of makes me feel like crying. It was so serene, the bed sheets were so soft, the home was so peaceful, smells of wood and sea air, like home but more relaxed, the stones in the shower were majestic, the proximity to the shops was so convenient, the three choices of beaches added so much variety. I only wish we had had a few or many more days. My favorite of our three stops this trip.
Shark Diving is available
