Perfect Island Getaway
The house was spectacular!!!!. We walked in and were instantly amazed at the view. You walk in the house and all you see is this amazing ocean coastline and mountain view and your jaw drops. The nights were so peaceful. We spent hours star gazing. The sunsets were postcard perfect!. We spent hours every day snorkeling at the beach and saw tons of fish. We laughed at the snorkeling and dolphin boat excursions that came and parked out in the ocean. It is definitely a perfect place if you love the ocean and sea life. We saw dolphins, bright colorful fish, giant sea turtles every day. We also enjoyed hiking out to the point along the ocean to a animal preserve. There was so much to do in the area. We loved going to the local restaurants and to Kapolei and Ko'Olina which were just down the road. The house had everything we needed and we had all kinds of excursions planned but ended up spending most of our time at the house and beach because why leave perfection!. Our family had one of the best vacations ever and we highly recommend this house to anyone who likes tranquility, beautiful sunsets, beautiful beaches and cool ocean breezes! We give this house a Thumbs UP!!!! Thank you so much for a perfect vacation!!!

Feeling at Home
Feeling at Home
Every few years we go back to Hawaii to see our ohana. This year we chose to rent a house because it is difficult for our cousins, aunties, and uncles to accommodate our large families. We, a total of 10, enjoyed our stay in this beautiful ocean front home. I must say, the pictures on this site do not do the house justice... It is even more spectacular. Our children enjoyed boogie boarding (supplied by the owners) almost daily. The sunsets are amazing from the patio as well as the star filled sky at night. The owners were extremely courteous and helpful. Karen responded quickly to all my questions and even called to check up on us. Mahalo nui loa Karen. I would definitely recommend staying here when you visit Hawaii Ne. (By the way, we were there for a month and felt right at home.)

BEST BEACH HOUSE EVERGuest comment entered by owner
BEST BEACH HOUSE EVER
This was our first time to Hawaii and really didn't know what to expect. When we arrived and walked into the house to sea the magnificent ocean and coastline views we were in Heaven. The sound of the waves put us to sleep each night. We enjoyed our daily walks along the beach and our daily swims with the magnificent colorful fish and giant sea turtles. Our family loved snorkeling daily. Our boys loved fishing out in front of the house. The house was absolutely beautiful!!! It was the perfect house for relaxing and had everything we needed. We ate all of our meals outside on the patio. The tradewinds kept the house cool and very comfortable. The sunsets at night were spectacular and we have many photo's of them. Our family definately wants to come back. The owners were great and very helpful. I highly recommend this house to anyone looking for the perfect vacation house on the ocean with beautiful beaches out your door.

Paradise FoundGuest comment entered by owner
Our family of 8 from Michigan stayed here and it was the best trip of a lifetime. The location was perfect. Our grandkids had the best time snorkeling and boogie boarding at the cove. The house had everything our family needed and was set up great for families. We could not get enough of the fantastic ocean, mountain and coastline views from the house and backyard. It really is paradise. The beaches were breathtakingly beautiful with hardly anyone on them. We felt like we had our own private paradise. The sunsets were my favorite. I have never seen such beautiful sunsets. We saw the green flash a couple of times. We saw dolphins playing in the ocean from the house. We saw giant sea turtles from the house. We loved having our morning breakfast on the back patio and our dinner at night. It is the perfect place for outdoor entertaining. The location was great. We were really close to Ko'Olina where the new Disney Resort is and there were tons of nice restaurants there and in Kapolei. In town we enjoyed Taco's and More which is a local favorite. We have already booked to come longer next year. Thank you so much for a vacation of a lifetime.

My husband and I along with two other couples just returned from a week in a Hawaii. This home was absolutely perfect!!! The rooms were great, beds comfortable, and it was so nice each couple having their own bathroom. We also loved the big open living room, kitchen and dining room. It's not a huge house, yet you feel like you have so much space simply because of the layout. The kitchen is beautiful and comes with everything you could need. I will save the best for last and that's the view. Words and pictures cannot begin to describe how absolutely gorgeous it is!!! And there is nothing better than going to sleep and waking up to the sound of the ocean. The neighborhood was quiet and safe. Also, the beach just down the street always had turtles at night when we'd go look. Nothing but great things to say about this home! We absolutely loved staying here.

PERFECT IN EVERY WAY!!
PERFECT IN EVERY WAY!!
Shame on me for waiting so long to post a review. We absolutely loved this home. Our grandkids still refer to "our house" in Hawaii. Very, very beautiful home. Clean, well maintained. Love the patio, the ocean view, listening to the waves at night. Gorgeous sunsets. Nothing but positive things to say. We definitely will look to this home next time we come to Hawaii. Our daughter, son-in-law, their three children, plus my husband and I and two teen grandkids, just couldn't have been happier. Owners easy to work with on reservations, deposit, etc. Sorry it took me so long to write this. I would recommend this home for anyone. Thank you so much to the owners for providing a wonderful home to vacation in. We are from Nebraska!

PERFECT HAWAII HOUSE!!
PERFECT HAWAII HOUSE!!
My family just returned from this BEAUTIFUL house, and it was very sad to say goodbye. The house was perfect for our big family of 10. Plenty of sleeping space and a bathroom for every room was great (we had the studio too). The pictures definitely do not do the remodel justice. Everything was spotless and was packed with anything you could think of needing. The best part of the house was definitely the backyard. We loved spending the evenings and mornings out on the patio enjoying the sounds of the waves crashing and the immaculate sunsets. The weather on this side of the island is ideal. We only experienced 1 day of rain and that is when we were in town in Honolulu. We took many trips to beautiful Ko'Olina and headed to the North Shore a couple days too. You can do just about everything on the island within an hour drive of the house. I highly recommend this house, we will definitely be back!

Family trip extraordinaire
Family trip extraordinaire
Our family of 10 had an extraordinary time at this rental! We were there for 12 days and wouldn't change a thing. We had Grandma & Grandpa in their 70s, 2 40-something couples, and 4 cousins ages 16,16,14 and 21. We would do it all again in a heartbeat. My brother surfed everyday, either at Makaha beach or we drove to several different beaches in the area. Pictures of the house don't do it justice. It has been redone in very good taste and is quite functional. Everything was clean and well-maintained. The layout is wonderful and there was plenty of room for everyone. No one wanted to leave when it was all over. We would love to stay here again. The owner was very easy to work with and our deposit was returned promptly upon our return. We drove to the Ko'Olina resort several times and recommend the MonkeyPod restaurant or picnicking at the lagoon. There was a seal on the beach one day! One day was spent at the water park. Evenings on the back patio were beautiful. We hung out back there all day too. Walking to the two beaches was a daily affair by at least some of our group. The ocean is pretty rough this time of year but we knew that before we went. It was beautiful. Yes, we saw whales and turtles! We only had a couple of bad weather days but sometimes you need a break! We were very happy with our vacation!

I stayed in this house the week of Thanksgiving, with my fiance, my daughter, and my fiance's family. It was my first time in Hawai'i, as well as the first time I ever saw the ocean, and if I could do it all over again I would in a Heartbeat! This house is absloutely BEAUTIFUL!!!! It was extremely clean, and had just enough room for the 11 of us that were there (we also had the studio) We all had our own rooms and bathrooms, It was perfect. Aki beach down the road has the most stunning view of the sunsets and the sea turtles are awesome too. The view from the back patio is BREATHTAKING!!!! Would wake up at sunrise and look at the boats and turtles out in the ocean. The sound of the waves crashing could be heard throught the house. AWESOME!! Plenty of room in the kitchen area to prepare a holiday meal (which we did) I hope I get to visit this house again. Its pretty awesome =) And I would highly reccomend this house to friends and family if they were planning a vacation to Oahu

Oceanfront OasisGuest comment entered by owner
The house was spectacular!!! the views were amazing and the sea life was unbelievable. We couldn't believe how many whales, dolphins, and giant sea turtles we saw from the back yard padio. We loved sitting outside on the patio drinking our coffee and watching for whales. The sunsets were amazing and our joke was Oh just another amazing sunset. We have never been to this part of the island before and we absolutely loved it. It is very peaceful and enjoyed hiking up into the valley and along the ocean out to the point. We loved going down to the little cove with the turtles to snorkel it was perfect. My husband and son caught fish from the rocks from the back yard of the house. They spent hours out their fishing. I highly recommend this home to couples with children, older people or anyone who enjoys peace and quiet and loves uncrowded beautiful white sand beaches and ocean activities such as snorkeling, surfing, paddle boarding, fishing ect. Our family loves it all so this house was PERFECT and the owners were so great to work with and very helpful with suggestions of things to do and answering all of our questions. Thanks Again

Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: I have been coming to Oahu for 42 years. The first time I stayed in Makaha was with my family in April 2010. I fell in love with Makaha and immediately started looking for a house. I purchased this home in August 2010. We have just finished remodeling this home from top to bottom. I fell in love with this house because it was on the ocean, had coastline and mountain views too from all major rooms of the house. It is on a quiet street and was right in between my two favorite beaches. The house is on a large 1/3 acre gated oceanfront lot on coral reefs. You can fish right out in front of our home. Makaha is a very relaxed community with some of the most beautiful beaches on the island and perfect weather. It is usually sunny and very laid back. The sea life there is amazing. Swim with giant sea turtles and brightly colored fish. Watch whales and dolphins from the house while enjoying a cocktail.
