    "Returned to this home 20yrs after our first visit, and it is still as breathtaking as it was 20yrs ago! The solitude, the view, the beach and surf... Wow! Swimming, SUP'ing, kayaking and even surfing with the turtles was fantastic and many many memories created with our young family."

    "If I did anything right on planning this Vacation to Oahu it was picking the McMahon Property to stay at and we will do so again if ever the chance arise again to go to Hawaii! Richard and Ann were the most gracious Hosts to meet. They would ask what we did or had we seen this and gave us insiders information of life on the island. Yes it was mentioned that the Highway noise could be heard but when we were there the waves were louder than the highway noise and were very comforting and relaxing. And sitting up in bed every morning and the first thing to see is the Palm trees and the rolling of the waves can't be beat!! We Highly recommend that you stay here and play here at Kahuna Bay. Your close to all the best beaches, Shrimp Trucks, Market places, Polynesian Cultural Center, Laie Temple, Zipline, Where they made Pearl Harbor, Jurassic Park, windtalkers just to name a few!!"

  • Dreams really do come true

    "We meet the owners on this magnificent property a few years back while visiting Kawela Bay. They were kind enough to show us around their home and shared with us that it was available for rent. That go the wheels turning. After one solid year of planning, we spent the month of January 2015. It was beyond our expectations. The property just can't be beat! EVERYTHING we needed was provided for us. We had several amazing cooks and took full advantage of the kitchen. The main house was fully utilized from early morning coffee in the living room, meal preparations in the kitchen, evening hors d'oeuvres on the deck or side yard and then dinners to die for in the dining room which overlooks the entire Kawela Bay. We utilized everything from the glass bottom kayaks to the art center in the guest house. The guesthouse accommodated the rest of our party and it meet all needs. My personal goal was to completely sink into the north shore vibe. I didn't have a need to go go go! Entertainment consisted of some tennis at nearby Turtle Bay, occasional trip to Haleiwa and spending a lot of time at the "Pipe" watching the world class surfers. All of these things are easily accessible from this property. At the property itself, sitting on the beach, snorkeling, kayaking and just relaxing filled many days. We had artists and musicians with us so the piano got used on several occasions as well as the art studio in the guest house. We even had our own Kawela Bay art exhibit! With a total of 11 adults, it was perfect. There are so many places on the property itself to drift off to by yourself or come together as a group. The owners are more than accommodating and the lady that more or less oversees the property while your there is terrific. I could go on and on but the bottom line is, this was just the best. Mahalo!"

  • Absolutely amazing

    "After travelling around the mainland of the usa for almost 5 weeks this house was a most wonderful welcome for us all. We absolutely enjoyed our time at this house. The location is perfect. The house was very clean and very well equipped. The beds were so comfortable and the host was a true gentleman. Our highlight would have to be swimming out the front of the house in what was mostly our own private beach. We will be back ! Thank you so much."
