North Shore Ranch Oahu
This is a one of a kind Hawaiian experience that few have a chance to enjoy. Over 6,000 acres of private land surround the 60 acre LOST Ranch. The one of a kind ocean views from this property go over 10 miles from Kaena Point to Sunset Beach. The house is located approx 1000 yards directly above one of Hawaii's best kept secret beaches, where many scenes and portions of the hit show "LOST" were filmed.
If you are looking to spend your Hawaiian vacation in a small quiet town located in a secluded area, only 10 minutes from Haleiwa and 45 minutes from Honolulu, then this is the place for you. It has a variety of excellent restaurants nearby and is great for all water sports including snorkeling, scuba diving, surfing, windsurfing, and kayaking. Other favorite activities include walking on the beach, fishing, skydiving, horseback riding, tennis, golf, biking, or hiking around the Western “Kaiena Point” end of the North Shore.
The house was fully remodeled and restored with over 3,000 sq. ft. of interior space, 2 large ocean view decks, real "Tiger Wood" wood floors, original old restored Oak wood floors, granite counters, stainless appliances, 4 new bedrooms and 3 clean large bathrooms. The roof is vaulted to give you a feeling of space and relaxation.
Come stay where the people of Oahu stay to get away from the crowds. Mokuleia is on Oahu's North Shore, but is a secret to most visitors.

The property is located a few miles from Haleiwa town for great shopping, Waiamea Bay for a wonderful day trip, Sunset Beach for surf watching, and Dillingham Air Field for Glider flying, sky diving, and Ariel tours.
This is a rare opportunity to enjoy one of Hawaii's original Ranch homes originally built in 1937. Only a very few lucky people have experienced this property. Movie stars, dignitaries, CEO’s, and the sort have stayed on this private ranch. The site of many movie backdrops and location filming.

The house was spectacular. We had 6 people staying in the house and there was plenty of room for everyone to relax. The views from the living room was fantastic. Waking up to the beautiful sunrise over the ranch land was fabulous. The night sky here will blow you away! We lived in Hawaii for a few years and had a general idea of the travel time from this house to everything we wanted to do so we weren't surprised with travel times. I would say anyone staying at this house would need a durable vehicle as I couldn't imagine driving a car up this driveway. The pool was excellent for the kids when the adults wanted to relax and make dinner instead of going to the beach. We had young kids with us so the beach across the road from the house was not ideal for them to swim in but drive through Haleiwa and you've got a few perfect spots for young kids to snorkel and play in calmer waters. There is no A/C in this house and the fans available were not sufficient for our preferences. We ended up going to the store the night we arrived to buy some window fans so we could sleep cool and enjoy time in the house during the day. We did visit during a heat wave of sorts by Oahu standards. We're from Texas so we are used to the heat but still need some A/C or fans to help us cope. Wildlife was abundant at the house. We saw frogs, peacock, mongoose, pigs, cows, horses, birds, geckos etc. The best part of this house is the remote location. Waikiki is so packed full of tourist you can hardly get anywhere and the beaches are always full of people. While staying at this house you will have no noise aside from the wildlife and you won't run into many people.

"Lost Ranch" was everything we hoped it would be and more. The house is open, updated, and spacious with quality finishes. Incredible views of the ocean and countryside with pristine swimming pool. There is no AC but all the windows are screened and it definitely stayed very comfortable all day with ceiling fans going. At night it was very cool and comfortable with closed windows and under blanket. The ranch is awesome with groves of palm trees and horses, cows, and peacocks roaming around. Haleiwa is an awesome little surfer town with tons of great food options. And the north shore beaches are super cool. We went into Waikiki a couple of nights too and that was fun nightlife and shopping but was plenty for our purposes. Staying here was really an awesome set up for my extended family. PS the shave ice at Waiola in Honoloulu blows away Matsumoto - and I'm a Matsumoto fan. ;) I didn't need to communicate with Cathy much about anything, but when I did she was quick and helpful. Highly recommend!
Lovely home, great views

The home was exactly as advertised and once we were there it was even better. Very quiet with magnificent views and lots of bird songs in the morning. Our grandchildren seemed to like the pool and remoteness even better than the beaches. Our host responded promptly to one minor glitch with a door and even drove immediately to the house to solve the issue, which required a repairman. However that glitch didn't impact our experience and we were a family of eight. The house was very clean and well taken care of. Our family wants to return next year. The setting is very private and we think is what a Hawaii experience should be, not in the middle of crowds in a typical resort setting. Where else could you experience ranch surroundings with a pool and tennis court in Hawaii with a view and by some of the best beaches and surfing in Oahu?

The views are exactly the way they are described in the listing. We rented the lost ranch to celebrate my in law's 40th wedding anniversary. My FIL & MIL were extremely pleased with lost ranch location. We had no problem fitting in 10 of us. The house is huge. It was hard for us to find the lost ranch because we arrived late night but I called Mr. Gray and he was able to walk us thru the directions over the phone. Anytime we had any questions/issues he was quick to address them. The pool, Tennis court, the back/side yard are very well maintained. We even helped ourselves to some star fruit growing in the back yard. Somethings around the house could use a little TLC. Like the shower head had lime scale build up. Well we are on mineral rich land so that's expected from the well water. I personally wish the mattresses were a little harder because we are sleep on a hard mattress. But we still slept like a babies. In the kitchen I wish there were some stainless steel utensils to cook in instead of non-stick. We did buy a big stainless steel pot and added it to their collection. No major complaints at all. We had a great time at a great ranch. Overall I would give it a 8/10. Would definitely love to stay at the Lost Ranch in the future. And would highly recommend it to friends and family. Shout out to Derek who was so kind to us, gave us fresh coconuts with straws in it. Thank you Mr. Gray and Mrs. Aloha.

Staying here is its own unique experienceOur family of 10 (siblings, kids, grandpa) chose to stay here for what seems like a trivial reason now: It had its own pool, which hardly any other houses for rent on the North Shore offer, and we wanted one for our littlest kids. The pool was indeed fun to hang out at and offered a nice respite from the beach (waves were unusually rough for summer), but the house has way more special qualities than that. The lush green setting is beautiful, with the ocean below and mountains above for constant scenery gazing. The papaya and starfish fruit trees were used for almost every meal. Our kids loved seeing the horses and cows on the ranch below and the wild pigs that frequently crossed the yard. I took a hike to the Kaena Point just up the road and loved that. Two in our party went skydiving at nearby Dillingham Airfield and raved about the experience, and each noticed how the house stood out in the landscape. We went back and forth to Haleiwa for assorted meals, supplies and shaved ice and never felt like it was a hassle (5-10 minutes). Our favorite beach for swimming was Waimea Bay (15-20 mins away), and we also loved hiking to the waterfall and strolling the gardens at Waimea Valley. Some of us were concerned about the lack of air-conditioning, and indeed the house was like an oven upon arrival. But once we opened up all the windows it was comfortable even in August. Why wouldn't you want the windows all open in such a beautiful natural setting? The beds were all comfortable, and we had everything we needed while there. We hope to return and use the house again in the not too distant future, not just for the things we didn't get around to doing during our stay but also to simply enjoy the house itself again.

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.

Exceptional Property!We were six adults and a couple of teenagers. The other reviews say it all. We use VBRO often when we travel and we’ve learned to take the web site descriptions with a grain of salt as they are often embellished and not quite as advertised. On the other hand, the description of the Mokuleia Ranch does not do justice to beauty of this place. I don’t know of many other places where you can sit on the lanai and watch both the sunrise and sunset with nothing but the ocean breezes and local wildlife to provide the background music. We hiked to Kaena point and peacock flats, snorkeled on the nearly private beach below the house, had cocktails by the pool every evening, BBQ’d, played golf, watched an exciting polo match and cruised Haleiwa Town – all of it no more than a few minutes away. And, if you want to just sit in the sun and read, you won’t find a more peaceful place on the island. Cathy and Ralph were very helpful and generous hosts. We highly recommend Lost Ranch.
