Makaha house description

Want a house on a sandy beach? This two bedroom two bath beachfront house is located in Makaha, about 29 miles from the airport and 40 miles from Honolulu/Waikiki. The weather in general in Makaha is the sunniest and driest on the island. At your home away from home you can watch turtles frolic in the surf line, watch the whales swim by from your window, take a romantic walk on the beach at sunset and fish and swim on your own sandy beach. Our beach house is in a private sheltered cove and one of only three houses with direct access to the beach on that side of the street. We are just a few minutes away from some of the most outstanding golf courses on Oahu. The water park is just a short drive away. Want to attend a luau? No problem, Paradise Cove is just a few minutes away by car. At our beach house you will have the option to experience Hawaii as it was 'back then' without the hustle and bustle of the city or experience both the city life and your very own Hawaiian retreat.


Unique Benefits of this House: The construction of this house allows you to have ocean as well as mountain views from every room. Even though it is a one level house, it is raised so that you can have an even better view of the majestic ocean below it. The kitchen has granite counter tops, beautiful wooden cabinets and new appliances. The house has been renovated inside and out. As you sit on your living room sofa, you might see a whale swim by because there is nothing between you and the ocean except the sandy white beach. Want a BBQ? You can fish for your dinner, walk a few steps and throw it on the BBQ grill in your patio or you could grill it on the beach while you watch the sunset. There are also two world class golf courses a few minutes drive away and one about 10 minutes away.The water park is also very near. Want to attend a luau? You will find one just a few minutes drive from where you are. I have provided a book with directions to all these places and more for you to look at.

Mr. & Mrs. Aloha: This gated house is wonderful because we have an on site manager who considers it a privilege to host guest from all over the world. Herman and Julie are called Mr. and Mrs. Aloha because they love their job so much. They can answer all your questions and give you a wealth of information about the area. Our beach house is located on the west side of the island where it is sunnier and drier than any other place on Oahu. In fact, when it is raining on other places on the island, you will still be having the sun shine down on you. Because the sun sets on the west side of the island your days will be longer and sunnier which means you will be lounging on the beach longer & soaking up that sunshine so when you return home it will be with a beautiful tan. If you would like to stay at a retreat like beach house that is very private and peaceful, come to our beach house.

Why Our Beach House?: Our family inherited this property from our Aunt whose husband was a contractor and built this house many years ago. Because it is on the west coast of Oahu and one of the most beautiful places on the island, we decided to turn it into a vacation rental so that other people could enjoy the natural beauty of this unspoiled paradise as much as we do. We have renovated the house so that all our wonderful guests can experience the natural beauty of this island as well as the comfort of a retreat like home. Our house is located in a private cove where there are only two other houses with direct access to the beach on that side of the street. For that reason you will find very little local traffic, if any, on your own private beach. The house is also by a natural reef so that when you are snorkeling, you might get to see the local marine life up close.

                  • This house is a direct beachfront and an oceanfront property so you will be able to lay on a white sandy beach 24/7 to get a suntan all year round. Beach is white sand and very private. Almost no local traffic. We are located 10 miles from the New Disney Resort, Aulani and the KoOlina Resort where you can go to if you choose to experience fine dining close to your beach house. We are 20 miles away from the Waikele Premium Outlets if you'd like to do a shopping marathon. And we are 15 miles away from Kapolei (the second city) where there are theaters, stores (Home Depot, Costco, K Mart, Target, and lots of local mom and pop shops) and tons of restaurants for dining (fast food places and lots of local family style dining)....moreless

                                  We are a beach front with ocean property, so you will have lots of sand to lay on to get your beautiful tan 24/7 all year round. White sandy beach is just 10 steps away from your door.

                                  Golf: There are three world class golf courses very near to our beach house. The Ko Olina golf course is Oahu's premier Ocean View Championship Golf Course designed by Ted Robinson. It is an 18 Hole Championship Golf Course which provides exceptional water features, multi tiered greens, expansive landing areas, no parallel fairways and measures up to 6,867 yards from the back tees. It is a 10 minute drive from our house. The Makaha Resort Golf Course is about 2 minutes away by car. This golf course was designed by William F. Bell to accent the stunning natural landscape of Makaha Valley. This championship course was acclaimed for its beauty as much as its rigor by Golf Digest, and was named the Island's best course by Honolulu Magazine. This classic 18 hole, 7,077 yard, par 72 course calls for a variety of shots and just about every club in your bag. With a USGA rating of 73.2 it challenges professionals and amateurs alike. Those with a sense of history will delight knowing that Hawaii's royalty used Makaha Valley for their recreation. The peacocks seen and heard throughout the valley were a gift from King Kalaukaua to the owner of the historic Makaha Valley Ranch more than 100 years ago.

                                  Why the Owner Chose Makaha:
                                  Our family inherited this property from our Aunt whose husband was a contractor and built this house many years ago. Because it is on the west coast of Oahu and one of the most beautiful places on the island, we decided to turn it into a vacation rental so that other people could enjoy the natural beauty of this unspoiled paradise as much as we do. Although this house was built many years ago, we have totally renovated it so that our wonderful guest will have the benefit of the natural beauty of the land as well as the comfort of a retreat like home. Our beach house is located in a private cove where there are only two other houses with direct access to the beach on that side of the street. For that reason you will find very little local traffic, if any, on your own private beach. The house is also by a natural reef so that when you are snorkeling, you might get to see the local marine life up close. It is located on the west side of the island where it is sunnier and drier than any other place on Oahu. In fact, when it is raining on other places of the island, you will still be having the sun shine down upon you. Because the sun sets on the west side of the island, your days will be longer and sunnier which means you will be lounging on the beach longer soaking up that sunshine so that when you return home it will be with a beautiful tan.
