This custom-built home is gated and situated in a private, quiet neighborhood, offering additional security and seclusion. The home backs up to thousands of acres of the Pupukea Paumalu Forest Reserve, offering vast views of the lush, tropical landscape while still being within minutes of first-rate beaches and miles of mountain biking and hiking trails. Mele Makana is only a short drive to the nearby beaches, grocery store, food trucks, and snorkeling spots making an enjoyable and adventurous vacation for the entire group.

The grounds of this Oahu home are beautifully landscaped - Immerse yourself in the natural beauty of the island from the comfort of your own massive private yard. The gardens surrounding the home are enjoyed from all perspectives, including the indoor spaces, making for stunning views no matter where you are. Just imagine watching the cloud-sprinkled sky transform from bright blue gorgeous reds, oranges, and purples as the sun sets over the forest. You’ll also find a custom outdoor shower is available to rinse the sand and salt off after a long beach day. Roll up the expansive driveway and you’ll find a covered carport as well as an additional parking area closer to the house.

Modern front entry doors lead you into the spacious and open living space with wooden vaulted ceilings and lined with large windows for panoramic views of the tropical forest. The space is drenched in natural light and is aptly suited for any time of year. Snuggle up with loved ones beside the fireplace on chilly evenings or gather here to cool off after a fun-filled island adventure under the ceiling fan. The plush, oversized sectional, modern coffee table, and extra ottomans in the living room perfectly complement the space and make this the perfect place to spend much-needed quality time with family and friends. There’s also a den on the first level of the home offering additional seating and even more garden views. Escape here with a smaller group for a game night or even make this the designated kids’ hangout cove!

Follow the natural contour of the common space and you’ll come across the massive, gourmet kitchen. The custom white cabinetry with accents of natural wood bring warmth and contrast to the dark countertops. A gas stovetop, stainless steel appliances, as well as cookware and utensils ensure you have anything you need for a quick and easy breakfast or an elaborate dinner feast. Floor-to-ceiling windows with forest and garden views line the wall opposite of the kitchen providing plenty of natural light when you’re ready to prepare a meal. Plus, there’s plenty of breakfast-bar seating just on the other side of the countertop to keep the chef entertained through it all. The kitchen flows into the dining room which boasts a large, family-style wooden table with benches to enjoy a meal with your entire group.

The spacious primary suite is located on the first level and includes a king-size bed, charming design elements, garden views, and a ceiling fan. The en-suite bath has a dual vanity and a shower/tub combo with views of the greenery through the large window. The second guest bedroom is also housed on the first level of the home and boasts a beautifully-appointed queen bed, garden views, and a ceiling fan. The tastefully-decorated third and fourth bedrooms are just up the stairs and both have double-size beds, garden views, and ceiling fans. The fourth bedroom also has a small workspace for those who need to stay connected while they’re away. Perfectly designed for younger children, the fifth bedroom contains a lofted twin bed as well as two toddler-size beds built-in with crib mattresses. There are spectacular garden views from the children's bedroom, a ceiling fan, and two chairs for the other kids or adults to keep them company.

Venture out to the Guest House and you’ll come across the sixth bedroom. This bedroom is perfect for those who want ultimate privacy as it is detached from the main residence. It has a queen-size bed, garden views, as well as a full en-suite bath with a walk-in shower. Plus, there’s a loveseat here that converts to a pull-out sleeper sofa to sleep an additional guest or just to enjoy some quiet time reading a book or just to lounge without distractions from the group. While the view of the Pupukea Paumalu Forest Reserve is grand, you’ll surely want to take a day and experience all the North Shore of Oahu has to offer first-hand. This property is conveniently located a mere five minutes to the closest beach by car. You’re also near many world-famous surfing spots, including Waimea Bay, Sunset Beach, and Pipeline. If you have little ones, Shark’s Cove has wonderful tidepools so they can check out the diverse marine life. For a unique experience, head into Waimea Valley, where you’ll learn about Hawaiian culture and plants as you hike along a paved path. At the end of the hike lies Waihi Falls, a beautiful 45 foot waterfall which feeds into a freshwater pool in which you can swim. Don’t miss Ted’s Bakery, where you’ll find the best chocolate haupia pie on the island, or try one of their many other delicious flavors.

The possibilities are seemingly endless when you vacation to Mele Makana on Oahu’s world-renowned North Shore!
