Makaweli studio description

We are located on a private ranch with a huge lawn and beautiful old trees surrounding the property. We are walking distance to a secluded private beach. This Bed and Breakfast rental is just five minutes from the historic town of Waimea that offers great restaurants, cinema, and colorful charm.

We are near the Resort Town of Poipu where you can find all sorts of activity; boogie boarding, surfing, golf,tennis,boating, and restaurants. Our place is a great place to get-away from it all and give you the feeling you are in paradise! We are definitely the old time Hawaii with all its natural beauty and charm. Time has literally stood still on our property. There are no resorts or throngs of people walking around. This is a truly private and peaceful area.

You will love our remote, private property, yet you are close to all the activities. You can go hiking in Kokee or take a boat trip down the spectacular Na Pali Coast. How about visiting the Waimea Canyon which is known as the Grand Canyon of the Pacific, or beach comb the private beach across the road from us.

Our family settled here in the mid 1800's and is committed to keeping the property in an unspoiled state. Several of the original homes are still standing and in use, including a nearby charming kama'aina plantation home belonging to my family built well over 100 years ago.

Keywords: Bed & Breakfast downstairs, owners live upstairs, large 2 acre yard with fruit trees,
house surrounds by acres of green pastures,
very peaceful and quiet.

    Pakala Beach View on map

    Pakala Beach is mainly a surfing area, but it is close enough to walk to and has about 1 mile of secluded beaches if you walk toward the west. Nice place to watch surfing!


Our B&B is located about 10 minutes from Port Allen where the tour boats leave for the Na Pali Coast. I highly recommend Capt Andy's for a boat tour, A helicopter owned by a family member is the only tour to go to the Forbidden Island of Niihau they are also located in Port Allen, Close by is 14 miles of beach-Kekaha Beach- wonderful walking and swimming although it is broken up by the military base towards the end, Polihale Beach is remote and fairly close very good walking and shelling.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: I was a teacher for 20 years and retired to own our B&B. I love to be outdoors and engage in several activities like kayaking, hiking, walking our two labrador dogs, ATVing, and generally being outside. My husband and I enjoy sitting on our deck upstairs and have a glass of wine while the sun goes down.

Why the Owner Chose Makaweli:
I grew up here and absolutely love that our family has a ranch. The ranch borders our back fence, you can sometimes see a mini cattle drive going on or see the cattle in the front pasture. I love the body surfing at Brennecke's beach in Poipu and the fact that this property hasn't changed much at all since the family bought it in 1860. It's very peaceful with a lot of songbirds chirping during the day. We have about 10 miles of beaches close to us, including Pakala Beach across the road and Salt Pond Beach Park about 5 minutes via driving.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
We have a short walk to the beach and it has about a mile of secluded beach to wander on and search for sea shells. It's close to the town of Waimea which has a movie theater and grocery stores where you can always buy fresh fish for the grill, a bank, and library among several stores which cater to the tourist.
