The Pipeline Lodge at Meleanas Farm, aka The Lodge.
The Lodge is cozy enough for a couple and large enough for a family reunion! The Lodge has been redone with new paint, furnishings and appliances throughout. Situated at the top of our organic farm property with amazing views, hiking out the backdoor, an 1,100 acre nature preserve, and just and a 5 minute walk to the ocean through a convenient beach access leading to three of Surfer Magazine's August 2011's 'World's Best Waves' Pipeline #1, Backdoor and Off-The-Wall. Don't worry though, most of the time the beach is quiet and great for swimming! This unique home can be rented as-

DOWNSTAIRS- three bedrooms (each with queen two with additional bunks), full bathroom, outdoor hot shower, kitchenette, patio with dining table and large grill, or

If you haven’t been to the North Shore, you are in for a treat. If you have, you know it can be a very different place between Summer’s long sunny days, the Fall & Spring seasonal lagoons that grace our beach and the Winter’s world class waves. Our properties are centrally located on the North Shore, directly across from the Banzai Pipeline (surf mecca). To the West we are 1 mile from Foodland & Sharks Cove, easy biking distance to Waimea Bay, 15 minutes driving to Haleiwa Town and the Sunday AM Farmers Market. To the East we are walking distance from Ehukai Beach Park & Sunset School’s Saturday AM Farmers Market, easy biking distance to Sunset Beach, 15 minutes driving to the Turtle Bay Resort and Kahuku Town. The bike path runs three miles along the coast and there is a bus stop right on Kamehameha Hwy. We are one hour from the airport and all that Honolulu has to offer.

This is a surfer's PARADISE! Literally a 10 minute walk...through an organic farm....to Sunset Beach. Great local food trucks within 5 minute walk and other local restaurants and shops within 10-15 minute drive. I loved how quiet, secluded and special this place is. If you are considering staying on the North Shore and want a quiet, stunningly beautiful and relaxing place to stay, this is your place. Highly recommend.
This place was PERFECT. It was just as promised, checking in/out was a breeze. The kitchen has everything you need. There is a dishwasher, huge nice fridge, stove, microwave and washer/dryer, coffee maker, rice cooker. There was even a hairdryer in the bathroom (though I didn't need to use it). The Lodge is nestled into the side of the mountain with big windows all around it and I laid in bed listening the rain and singing geckos and birds every night and it was just magical. Everything was perfectly private. I could have sat on the terrace and just watched the swells on the horizon for days. The location is great - you could easily walk to both Pipeline and Sunset, or use one of the bikes available. There are a couple of food trucks at the end of the drive if you want food and don't want to get in your car as well. I was by myself and so just made use of the top floor, and it felt both private and very safe. There was a cat who left me gifts on the terrace every morning, which I thought was awesome (I have no idea if this cat actually belongs to the home but we were friends). The place was impeccably clean, and with the ceiling fans and large windows around it was always very pleasant inside. There isn't great cell reception inside, but there is a landline phone and wifi so its not really an issue. I like to visit North Shore often and I think I will definitely always try to stay at the Lodge!
We spent 3 nights at Meleana's property. the kitchen is great and the view even better! our host was great, we'd definitely go back.
The House was amazing! Felt just like home. I got to meet Meleana on her Monday morning workout down the end of the road and she was incredibly nice! Mele just came up, said hi and asked us how we were liking her home. The beach was so close and purple food cart and the end of the road was super good. I would love to do stay in one of her homes again of i get to opportunity again.
We had an amazing stay at Meleana's lodge! Our group of 12 was in Hawaii for a karate seminar and we could not have asked for a better stay. The house had plenty of space for us to spread out and was stocked with everything we needed. It was the perfect place to come back to after a long weekend of working out. The pictures don't do it justice.
We cooked most of our meals and the kitchen had plenty of space for several cooks plus seating for everyone else. The 8 burner grill on the upper deck really got a workout during our stay. It was great to be able to grill steaks and vegetables for 12 adults in one batch!
The house has a huge deck with lots of seating and amazing views of the ocean on each level. We used the lower deck during the day and moved to the upper deck each evening as it cooled down.
Meleana was extremely friendly and helpful. Make sure you stop by the farm and pick up a community share produce basket or some of the other fresh produce. We bought a huge bag of chayote squash and wing beans, two things I've never even heard of before, for a very reasonable price.
The beach is a 5 minute walk to the bottom of the hill and across the street. The house comes equipped with everything you need for a day at the beach: boogie boards, masks, snorkel, fins, mats, towels, toys, balls, etc, etc, etc...
The house is in a nice quiet area on the North shore so there's not a lot of touristy stuff close, which made it the perfect place to get away from it all. The road to the house is a little difficult to find, especially at night. Even after a couple of days, it was normal for us to miss the turn and have to turn around in the beach parking lot down the street...
There are a bunch of great food trucks close by and Foodland, the local grocery store, is about a mile down the road.
The Green Lodge was exactly what we were looking for, and provided our small gang a perfect place to regroup during our incredible visit to the north shore.
First off, I was glad to see that the place looked just as it did in the photos, and came with all the amenities described. We weren't lacking anything in the kitchen, bathrooms, or at the beach. The location was perfect, already off a quiet stretch of main road, the side road up to the house really helped to truly relax away from the rest of the world (the stunning morning views helped too). Out of everyone staying up at the north shore for the wedding we were at, it was clear that our place was the quietest and furthest away from other homes (everyone was super jealous of the lodge!).
The house is a couple minute walk down to great beach and a few fantastic food trucks, and a short drive or bike ride down to the major sites and towns on the north shore.
Mele was great to work with, and though we were unfortunately unable to meet her face-to-face, she made the whole process seem effortless and as stress free as I have ever experienced at any sort of vacation accommodation. Thanks so much Mele! We'll be back again soon!
The Green Lodge was the PERFECT place for our group of friends to enjoy and explore the North Shore! We were in love from the second we set foot on the property. Steps away from Pipeline and a short drive to Waimea, the shrimp trucks, and Haleiwa... what could be better?! The lodge was spacious for our group of eight. Our favorite place to gather was in the kitchen where we made meals together with fresh (and amazing) produce from the farm. The views from the upstairs deck were breathtaking! Since we did stay at the lodge during a summer month, we did have a few encounters with mosquitoes, but the lodge supplied the citronella coils and bug spray for our benefit. All of the bedrooms were clean and comfortable. The kitchen was well-stocked with all the appliances and kitchen tools to create delicious meals. I also really appreciated the house rules at the lodge - like removing your shoes before entering the house, being mindful of electricity usage, and using the compost pile. I only had the pleasure of meeting Meleana very briefly, but she was very sweet and helpful. Hands down... the next time we travel to the North Shore, we won't have to look for lodging anywhere else but the Green Lodge!
