About Cha cha

We are a local family. I was born and raised here. As well as my son. My husband is a working carpenter and I work in Honolulu. My son teaches surf lessons and works in a local popular eatery. We are working and enjoy sharing our home with visitors. You are sharing our beautiful space so ask that you are respectful of that. We are of your privacy as well. Although we like to interact if you are open to it. Sometimes our work schedules don't jive with our guests fun schedule. Please don't mistake this for indifference. We are always concerned for your comfort. It is not a party house, so if that's what you're looking for there are other options out there. We basically are early to bed for the guys and I return late in the evening. Not as early a riser as they are.. We do have a young dog who pretty much is a house dog. He does go out for play. So if this is a problem let us know and we will keep him contained. He is usually in or tied on our deck. Please contact us if this is a fit for you. Aloha,

Peaceful stay at a lovely property

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our 3 day stay at Charlotte's apartment. It is very spacious, has all the amenities you need, although does not have a stove, but didn't need it anyway. The drive up the hill might be daunting to some, but we had no issues and just added to the seclusion and serenity of the property. Very convenient location to places like Waimea Bay,Sunset Beach, Shark's Cove for great snorkelling,Haleiwa town, Laniakea Beach (Turtle Beach), Foodland, food trucks and Ted's Bakery for delicious pies,sweets and breakfast and lunch. Dole plantation is also a 10-15 minute drive. The apartment itself is lovely. My husband enjoyed a refreshing swim in the pool every morning and loved the cable TV, I loved the lush gardens outside our apartment. Very peaceful,only the sounds of nature can be heard. Even though there a quite a few cars in the parking area, never heard any noise from anyone. Charlotte is very gracious and accommodating, sharing tips about the area and even came down at 9 pm when my husband was having trouble operating the cable TV. Charlotte and her family live upstairs and there is another apartment next door with permanent renters, but again, never heard any noises, Our apartment has its own separate entrance. We met Charlotte's son Zac, as he was feeding his chickens, and he was also very friendly and helpful. We appreciated the use of the cooler and snorkelling equipment in the apartment. The kitchen is also well stocked with the basic necessities. If I can make one suggestion, maybe a clothes hanging rack that you can put outside to dry swimwear would be appreciated. All in all, a great place,nice hosts and very good value for money. We have been to Oahu countless times, my sister lives in Honolulu and my husband works for Qantas, and always do a day trip to the North Shore. This is the first time we have actually stayed in the North Shore and it won't be the last. It is such a nice change from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki and Honolulu. Thank you Charlotte and family, we will certainly consider you for any future stays in the North Shore. Mahalo!

Couldn’t of asked for a more aloha expierience.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful place for a great price. Loved the garden, chickens, chill people and how welcoming and relaxed it was. Always had privacy and the inside had everything I could’ve asked for and more. Whoever commented about the rust on the fridge must be very nit picky because it was only on the outside and not even noticeable at all. Definatly will be back again if I get the chance.I gotta day again thank you very much and sorry for the late review!

This wonderful "home" feels like that. Surrounded by naturalness and quiet except for wonderful birds, crickets and gifts of the air. The Murphy's were so gracious and just right with interactions. Having so much physical space to "live" in for a week including the kitchen that allowed for full creative dinner cooking, was so helpful for rest and visiting.

Calm above the Storm

  • 5 of 5

The North Shore of Oahu can be a pretty busy place, especially when the Volcom Pipe Pro is going on and the entire surf industry is bustling on the beaches below. Luckily, you have the option to stay at this clean and remote property. From the surrounding forest and lively sounds, to the exquisite and relaxing pool area. This place is a win! I stayed here with my girlfriend for 3 days in Feb '18 and would certainly stay again upon return. My only complaint is that the driving directions could use a slight update. Thanks Cha Cha!

Great spot tucked away in the hills of the North Shore.

  • 5 of 5

Charlotte’s rental provided a fantastic place to stay while exploring the North Shore. Close drive to Hale’iwa, Banzai Pipeline, Sunset Beach and all other North Shore sites while situated in the quiet hills above Pupukea. Simple place with all the proper necessities. Charlotte and family are very friendly, hospitable and accommodating and communicate very well with you during your stay. I would definitely recommend this place and would definitely return.
