About This Listing
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.

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.

We had a wonderful time! It is secluded and quiet and immersed in nature. Very close to town and many beaches. Silvan was very helpful with hikes and good places to eat! They also had brag chairs and snorkels which were great to have! Would recommend this to anyone who loves nature and wants to get away from the crazy tourism
The eco-hideaway was exactly as advertised. Even though it was close to 90 degrees outside, there is plenty of shade and it remains comfortable in the tent throughout the day. Silvan was super nice and helpful with suggestions on where to hike and eat during our stay. We will definitely come back for another visit.
This place was just perfect for what we were looking for. The stars at night were amazing and I loved waking up to sound of nature. The pictures are 100% accurate. The views are stunning! We rented a car and found the location was very convenient for exploring all that the north shore offers. Silvan was a gracious host. She responded quickly to our emails and met us at check in. She provided us with a quick tour of the tent to ensure we had everything we needed and gave us excellent suggestions for activities and food. On a practical note the tent felt very private, the bed was comfy, regular towels and beach towels were provided, the shower was great, and I easily got cell phone service. I’m already planning a trip back!
This little place is so unique and perfect, away from all the noise and traffic nestled in a little slice of lush jungle. Everything you need is there- fridge, a little stove and oven, french press, beach towels, snorkel and surf gear, bug spray, shampoo, conditioner, books, comfy bed... There are fruit trees all around and we got to eat the most delicious papayas, tangerines, and guavas. We loved the "outdoor" area and listening to all the birds every morning. It was so simple, peaceful, clean, and perfect. We picked up delicious baked goods at a tiny local bakery very close by and went to the farmer's market to have more fresh fruit and chicken off the grill. The beach is not walking distance away, but it is a very close drive away, especially if you head west to the quieter beaches of Mokuleia. We would definitely recommend this place and hope to stay again one (website hidden)- Silvan was very warm and welcoming!
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.
