Not just a clever title our home sits directly in front of Pipeline, which can mean the worlds best surf show or a huge empty beach depending on the day:) You will also love the unique coconut interior of this perfect little green beach house.
MAHALO for your interest in our "Beachfront PIPELINE Solar Home" one of the North Shore's greenest homes!
In case you need more space, inquire about our "Green LODGE on Organic Farm" across the street at Waihuena Farm.
The perfect little green beach house situated DIRECTLY IN FRONT OF PIPELINE. Surfer Magazine's August 2011's 'World's Best Waves' article features Pipeline #1, Backdoor and Off-The-Wall, which just so happen to be our three closest surfbreaks:). Don't worry though, most of the time the beach is quiet and great for swimming! Our custom glossy coconut and bamboo interior, 100% solar power, open floor plan, large deck, grill, and prime location please everyone from the Pipeline Masters to the individual looking for a peaceful summer getaway.
There are three queen beds and a bunk, but only one closed bedroom (where the bunks are located). The living room has a murphy (fold away) bed with a clever roll out room divider that provides privacy and there is a great pune’e perfect for napping. There is one bathroom and a great outdoor shower.

Everything was exactly as described - really incredible. The house itself was amazing, really relaxed and spacious. We were celebrating our honeymoon and so the location in the North Shore right next to Pipeline was awesome. Wonderful food trucks within a short stroll featuring acai bowls and thai food.
I can't recommend this place enough if you are looking for a relaxing stay.
Meleana made everything really easy with clear instructions in her welcome email about how to access the house.
The only way you are getting a better location on the North Shore is if you are a professional surfer staying at your sponsor's house. The Meleana was a great host and the house is very welcoming. We can not wait to visit again!
The listing was exactly as described. It was very charming and the location is beautiful.
Breathtaking location. When you step onto the deck overlooking the banzai pipeline you'll never want to leave. The house is perfect. Has everything you could possibly want. Usually we are exploring the region quite a bit but once we saw this place we just wanted to sit, relax and watch the crazy surfers! Would highly recommend it to anyone that loves staying at prime beach locales. Try the Thai food truck 2 blocks away. Best Pad Thai we've ever had bar none. Only downside the entire trip was the hurricane related weather but what can you do... Welcome to the tropics! ;-)
My wife & I stayed here on our first trip to Hawaii. This was a beautiful place to stay. Perfect place to got if you need to shut your cell phone off, chill out, and get a bit of the laid-back island lifestyle. It's right on the beach beside the legendary "pipeline" surfing spot. The house is clean and well-kept with all the amenities you need for a relaxing stay on O'ahu's laid-back North Shore. Snorkels, push bikes, boogie boards, beach chairs are all available for use. We could easily ride our bikes to delicious food trucks and great snorkeling spots. We enjoyed the day bed by the window that looks out on the beach. The deck is awesome and we used the outside shower everyday. Meleana is a great host, her farm is nearby and they have fresh produce to buy. She can advise on local activities and good places to eat. It was lovely to fall asleep to the sound of the surf (I slept fine), but light sleepers should pack earplugs. Once the famously large surf starts, the pounding waves can rattle the windows. At the end of our stay, I really didn't want to depart from this wonderful place.
This was our first vacation all year! Thank goodness we stayed at Mele's amazing house. It's in the perfect location on the beach where you can really just spend your day watching surfers and swimming. Otherwise, you can hop on the bikes she provides and ride on the bike path to other awesome beaches and around town. Mele was always accessible and helpful to us, she even took the time to come over and say hi. Moreover, she let us borrow flippers which were awesome! I really loved this place so much and we hope to return soon.
Meleana was a wonderful hostess, and here home is lovely. Situated directly on one of Oahu's most beautiful and uncrowded beaches, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
