Live, Love, & Laugh Daily. Get in the ocean, the salt water will cure your daily blues. I love Hawaii and enjoy sharing these wonderful islands with everyone. Come and visit our wonderful properties.
Just got back from a wonderful stay at the "LOST" Ranch! It was clean and safe with amazing views of the ocean and the hills. Our group had 8 people (three couples + two singles) and the rooms/bathrooms were perfect. There was even a full bed in the living room for extra people but we didn't need it. The pool was nice and the yard and tennis court (racquets/balls in the house) were very clear and groomed. The property is not directly on the beach but we walked down about ~15-20 minutes to the water. You can very easily drive/park at the beach (~5 mins) Being away from the water was well worth the seclusion and tropics of the hills. Cathy and the property manger were incredibly helpful when we got lost trying to find the house and everything else was seamless! Property is safe and owners take every precaution to keep it that way. Make sure you stock up at Costco before you get there, since there are not a lot of stores around. We used the grill and kitchen to cook all of our meals. I would aboustley stay at the "LOST" Ranch again and would highly recommend it to anyone interested.
What a wonderful property! My family and I really enjoyed our stay here. The house is very well appointed and there is plenty of room. The location is ideal: the beach is your backyard and you are close to many, many other great spots for swimming, snorkeling, shopping, and eating. The host provides a lot of detailed, helpful information. I hope to stay here again!

Thanks Jessica, please come back any time and we willg ive you a discount for return guests :)
For anyone looking for a place to get away and forget about the days at work, this is it! We had a group of 6 at the property for our office retreat. Our entire office team was blown away by the fact that we felt as if we had the island all to ourselves. All you hear is birds any time of day, no traffic noise, no commotion, just peace and quiet. The home is up the hill and completely secluded. The walk to the beach is a bit of a hike, but a great walk none the less.
I would recommend this home to families or a small group wanting to get away from it all.
I would very strongly recommend renting this wonderful beach house on the North Shore of Oahu. The property was exactly as it was described and the photographs were an accurate depiction of what they intended to show. The physical location is more beautiful than you can possibly imagine, especially in the winter when the surf is big. And, even though the surf was big, there was ample area for small children to play on the beach immediately behind the house. The security system worked well and made us more confident in safety. The house was completely stocked with everything that we needed. In addition, previous guests and the owner left many items for snorkeling and other water sports. The location on the North Shore is excellent with easy access to grocery stores, restaurants and the wonderful shops of Haleiwa. When we needed an outside light turned off because this switch was inoperable, the owner had a workman there promptly the next day. Even better, the workman gave us some tips for the best places to find the sea turtles. Because the handyman was a neighbor, he knew all of the best snorkeling areas. The owner provided a list of recommended restaurants, sightseeing locations, and other suggestions. We followed many of the recommendations and were very pleased. If you want a wonderful oceanside Hawaiian adventure, rent this house and have a wonderful time.
Beautiful home, incredible view, close to town, really couldn't have asked for more.
The entire experience was 5 star. The house was better than described with all the amenities in excellent condition. The location was perfect for truly getting away, relaxing, and enjoying the 'original' Hawaii. This is a perfect spot for a big family to spread out. Being on the North Shore requires a little bit of extra logistical planning as you won't be running to the mall or calling Dominos pizza delivery. You will, tho, have an amazing sunrise, sunset everyday, privacy, a million stars at night, all while being in a modern home that blends naturally with the surroundings.
It was an outstanding vacation in a location I would highly recommend.
For those that think that Oahu is only concrete and people, think again. If you want a truly "country" experience on the North Shore, this is the place for you.
Imagine driving through a coconut grove on the way to a home with panoramic views from any vantage point. Imagine waking up to the sounds of the surf and hundreds of birds telling you to get out of bed and go for a hike or get in the ocean and start living Aloha.
The "Lost" Ranch house is a unique property well suited for large families or groups of families that want to experience Hawaii away from the hustle and bustle of the resort experience.
The house is well appointed with a great open floor plan, a nice kitchen and wrap around decks that provide quiet places to read or share an afternoon beverage and a laugh.
The house serves as a good jumping off point for all sorts of activities - surfing, swimming, hiking, snorkeling, diving, horseback riding, skydiving, fishing (all within 10 minutes drive) or you can just sit poolside with a book and a cooler.
The sign of a good vacation is that on the way to the airport your kids are screaming at you to turn around and go back home, to your "country" home. We enjoyed getting "lost" on the Ranch and think that many others will too.
Much Aloha to the Grays for time well spent with the Ohana.
If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of Honolulu, have some of the best beaches, hiking areas and views of Oahu at your door etep this place is for you! We all absolutely loved the ranch, the restored ranch house and all it had to offer!
Highly recommended - it's an amazing ranch house with incredible views of North Shore!
The host is great - professional and a pleasure to work with.
Lost Ranch is truly amazing -- away from it all. With incredible views great walks from the house it is just 10 minutes to a beautiful, and isolated beach. Haleiwa is just 15 minutes away . There is nothing like the North Shore and Lost Ranch offers the best getaway without being too remote.
The house was great for our group of six -- plenty of space to relax together or alone.The house was very clean, comfortable beds and a fully equipped kitchen. Not a great spot for teens looking for nightlife but a wonderful escape for the rest of us.
