This unique eco- hideaway is located in a river valley at the base of Mt. Ka’ala, the highest peak on Oahu. This private, gated community is close to all beaches on the north shore and only about 2 miles from Haleiwa town center.
Staying on this property will allow you to connect with and experience nature in an unforgettable way. Fall asleep to soothing sound of the stream and wake up to the beautiful songs of the birds on this one acre property.
This property is entirely off grid, yet still has the comforts of home. All energy is generated with solar power. Water is pumped from our private artesian well 180 feet below the surface of the earth.
The 10’x20’ lanai is not visible from the private road leaving its guests hidden with only views of the ravine. This South African Safari tent is equipped with it’s own propane refrigerator, sink and stove. Experience the beautiful outdoors and serenity of the open air with the comforts of clean sheets, electricity, and a hot shower.
The 17’x17’ enclosed area has a queen size bed and a queen sized futon couch bed. There is a power strip with plenty of power to charge your phones, computers, etc.
The attached bathroom includes plumbed sink, toilet and propane hot-water shower, along with a claw foot tub.
This Safari tent is on the same property with our main house and another tent, but the landscaping and the layout of the land allow for plenty of privacy.
Enjoy (when in season) sweet dwarf apple bananas, papayas, Meyer’s lemons, Mexican limes, star fruit, guava, and more.
There is a certified organic farm about a 5 minute walk up our private road where you can purchase organic produce directly from the farmer on Saturdays and Sundays. Farm to your table in no time at all.

Silvan was very welcoming and made sure we had plenty of clean bedding and sheets for our safari tent. She even brought down some fruit for us! The location was spectacular, especially the drive in. I loved waking up to the birds. We came in fairly late in the day, but the directions made it very easy to find. It's within easy driving distance a charming Old Town area with plenty of places to eat.
Truly beautiful spot in the middle of paradise. Close to amazing beaches and hiking and yummy restaurants one town over. The birds are unbelievably loud in the morning, but that helps get you up and out anyway to see all the beauty Hawaii has to offer. Though Adam and Silvan were away when we stayed there, they were helpful and responsive throughout the booking/planning process. Highly recommend!
Wow! I had 3 days at this beautiful getaway and it was wonderful. Silvan and Adam were very flexible as I booked last minute. I am so happy I stayed at this very unique place.
Everything about this hideaway was perfect. Silvan and Adam were the best host from start to finish that we had and we had stayed all down the coast starting at Waikiki following the north shore all the way down. The place actually looks better than the pictures in person just like all of the island and they provided lots of surfboards, snorkeling gear, and chairs basically what ever we needed.
This place was amazing! A perfect getaway if you're into nature (but how can you be not if you're in Hawaii)! Very clean, private, and had everything we needed. Would recommend this place to anyone! Thanks for a great stay Silvan!
Cant say enough about the experience as a whole. A true getaway from the mayhem of Honolulu. It was amazing to have all the comforts of home while being able to drink coffee and eat a freshly picked fruit breakfast on the open deck. Birds chirping all around, sunlight poking through trees, hens coming around to say hi every once in a while, peacocks roaming, and even the sound of a goat every so often. Location is a bit far from being able to efficiently get everywhere on the island but thats part of what makes it so special. I recommend just picking one or two major destinations per day and enjoying the beautiful drives in every direction, then come back for a relaxing evening. Silva was a sweetheart and came around only when we needed things, otherwise we pretty much had the place to ourselves. They also provide snorkel gear, surf boards and beach towels!
What an amazing place to stay!! The place is exactly as described, even better! Tranquil romantic getaway with birds chirping in the morning, secluded and lovely! The bed is super comfy. The shower is hot! The fridge had some coffee which we enjoyed very much. Will always stay here when I am vusiting the North Shore!!
