Hawaiian Getaway to a Private House on Oahu for One Week
Spectacular mountain views and a gorgeous beach provide the setting for this two-bedroom, one-bath cedar house with accommodations for six people on the rural Windward Coast of Oahu. The “Mushroom House“, located on the beautiful Kualoa Ranch, is a pleasant country cottage with cathedral ceilings and picture windows and sits at the mouth of the magnificent Ka’a’awa Valley. Egrets, mynah birds and cardinals abound in the expansive garden area and coconut palms frame an ornamental pond. Only steps away, across a small two-lane road, the beach awaits you for swimming, boogie boarding, surfing or lazing in the sun. Other activities, such as horseback riding and four-wheeler tours, can be arranged through Kualoa Ranch. This is one of the most serene locations on the island of Oahu and is only a 40-minute drive to Honolulu, 20 minutes to your selection of golf courses and 30 minutes to the famous North Shore Beaches.
