About this property

New Listing - Gecko Hale

This fully furnished one bedroom, one bath guest house is located on the windward side of Oahu’s scenic North Shore. It is secluded and a great home base for your relaxing tropical vacation. Gecko Hale is on a one-acre private estate that enjoys the cooling trade winds, fruit, and shade trees. The owners reside in the main and there is another one bedroom, one bath rental called the Surfers Hale. They are all nestled in a lush tropical botanical garden filled with secluded seating areas for private and relaxing moments to enjoy what the country has to offer—including a small shaded stream that reaches from mountain to shore. Located at the base of the Ko’olau mountain range, close to the beach, but far from the crowds; Gecko Hale is a comfortable, relaxing, beautiful and private Hawaiian retreat for you to experience! The Mystic Ko’olau property is located in Hau'ula approximately 60 minutes from the Honolulu International Airport. Hau’ula is a small, historic fishing and farming community with beautiful sandy beaches and no crowds. It is where the magical, evergreen, Ko’olau Mountains reach up to the clouds and flow down into the sparkling, blue Pacific. This small, remote community of single-family homes, small shops, and local-style restaurants is very different from the high rise, busy retail tourism center of Waikiki. Hau'ula truly offers a glimpse of old Hawaii; slower paced, peaceful, with friendly people in one of the largest Polynesian communities on Oahu. Aloha a hui hou!

5/5 Excellent

Great place to stay near the north shore. Owner is very friendly and helpful. Beautifully decorated and stocked with everything you’d need.

Stayed 3 nights in Oct 2019

A Little Paradise

A quiet, cozy location with gardens and surfboards all around. The property was well thought out with a fully stocked kitchen, private, clean bathroom with a full shower, and relaxing living areas that all live up to their descriptions. We especially liked there decor and feel inside. It was also nice to have a functioning washer and dryer to use when we needed it as well. We would definitely stay here again. Russ was very welcoming, always available and responsive and super friendly. Mahalo!

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful Getaway

Off the beaten path, but close enough to several well known attractions and some lesser (less touristy) ones too. Lovely garden setting. The gecko hale is one of a kind!

4/5 Good

Awesome Place to Stay

The property was awesome and the location was unbeatable for the price. My only suggestion would be to add a ceiling fan or AC unit for the bedroom for sleeping at night. Russel was a great host, I would definitely stay here again!

5/5 Excellent


Beautiful grounds, charming atmosphere and excellent hospitality! Very clean, and comfortable. Enjoyed our stay and would definitely book again. Thank you to Russ and his wife for making it so easy and inviting!
