Property description

Come relax at the beautiful ocean front property

Experience true Aloha in this charming 4 bedroom, two bathroom ohana located oceanfront in Makaha with extraordinary views of Waianai mountain range and pacific ocean. Snorkeling is available at a variety of beaches and reefs, or simply cross the street to take advantage of everything makaha beach park has to offer. Chances are, you can watch the native Hawaiian spinner dolphins right from your lanai through out the year. And you can watch a whale perform an acrobatic leap while in season. Located just an hour from Honolulu Airport, the Laulea Manor's beauty, easy access and quiet seclusion, make it a preferred home base for families interested in the true Hawaiian experience. The Master bedroom suite offers sweeping ocean views, a private door to the lanai. Our gourmet kitchen is chef approved. We offer cable tv that can connect you to your hula account with the hi speed internet we provide. Each bedroom offers a unique view of our little piece of paradise. The morning sunrise shines through the stained glass front door with rainbows to start your day.
Ask us about Tess' Hide Away. This ohana adds space for up to 12 people. Or if you need less room or have a smaller budget we can offer a 2 bedroom unit downstairs for $150 a night. Please check out the smaller unit at

The home itself is comfortable, well stocked and private. Relax on the shaded lanai and begin every day watching the sun rise over Waianae mountain range while balmy trade winds breeze by; relax in the evening as the sun sets majestically over the stunning pacific ocean. The property is located about and hour and half away from the airport depending on the traffic.

We are so happy to be able to share this beautiful and picturesque home with your family and friends. We have all the amenities a typical home would provide like cable, internet, kitchenware, toiletries, towels, coffee maker, iron board, washer, dryer and so on. If there is any specific item that is not mentioned here, please feel free to ask for it. Chances are, we have it stocked but couldn't mention it because the list would be so huge. :). Oh one last thing about the amenities. We also have a barbeque in the backyard for our guests to use. You can enjoy the trade winds, the beautiful scenery and the occasional breach by a whale or dolphin while sinking you teeth into homemade bbq food. Now that's a true Hawaiian vacation at its best. Wouldn't you agree?? :)


$300.00 - $450 up to 10 guests, $20 per additional guest. Ask about our downstairs Ohana for $200 a night that can sleep 6+ guests to accommodate more people.

Car: Necessary

We are just around the corner from the world famous Makaha surfing beach and for those people with Kieki (children) Pokai Bay is about 1 mile away. It is a calm white sand bay great for snorkeling or just floating away the day. There are local boat tours and folks who would love to teach you how to paddle board or surf. Our local Hawaiian food is easily available at most stores and restaurants. Kapolei is just 15 miles away and offers many fine dining restaurants, a movie complex, Costco, Walmart, and a water park. Don't want to drive to Waikiki? The local bus stops at our doorstep and will take you to the famous Alamoana Shopping center in Honolulu. The wikiwiki buses will take you to Hilo Hatties to find those island treasures to take home. We have many celebrations on our island and most weekends there is something special happening. The drive around the island will surprise you with the various landscapes, from rain forest to pineapple fields, high cloud haloed mountains to white sandy beaches. Every bend is a new surprise.

Year Purchased: 2014

About: I am a software engineer by profession. We came to Hawaii with a few friends and we fell in love with the area. We had to have one home in this area for our retirement and decided to buy this property together.

Why Makaha:
Views from the property are breath taking. You have to see it to believe it. We fell in love right away.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
watching under water wild life and gorgeous sunsets.
