The Beach House Makaha

Bedrooms 4
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Sun on your face, wind in your hair, the scent and sounds of the ocean beckoning you to come sink your toes into the warm sand. This is Makaha. Deep blue water, stunning sunsets and enchanting early morning 'full moon' sets; if you're lucky you may even see a 'moonbow'!

This beachfront home is well appointed with a nicely furnished kitchen and a dining table that seats 10. Tiled throughout with the bathrooms accessible also from the outside, the house lends itself well to indoor / outdoor living. In fact, the windows facing the ocean and mountain are screen and glass track doors that fully retract virtually removing the walls.

There are 4 bedrooms; 3 are downstairs, two of those share a bathroom with shower and the other one has its own bathroom and shower. The master bedroom is upstairs with a full bathtub/shower, and a 200 square foot balcony overlooking the ocean.

Ceiling fans in every room make the house feel breezy even when there is no wind. The beautiful surrounding trees lend shelter from the sun when you're ready to kick back and cool down in the shade.

The oceanside lower lanai has 2 round tables and a picnic table in close proximity to the kitchen and gas grill. Above are ceiling fans and lights for after sunset dinner enjoyment.

Makaha Beach is well known for surfing and diving. Each day surfers, paddle boarders, kayakers, snorkelers, divers etc. partake in the fabulous ocean fronting the house. This location is also enjoyed by those who are enthusiastic about fishing, whale watching and outrigger canoeing.

Just 15-20 minutes away are the Ihilani Resort and the new city of Kapolei. There can be found a spa, a theater, many stores, fine and casual dining. About 8 minutes from here is the Makaha Golf Resort.

In summary, this location and home combined are nothing short of epic.

Breathtakingly beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I came with our blended family of 6 (youngest is 17), and it was perfect. We only left the house to go to the grocery for the first two days, then ventured out to see some sights the remaining days in the week. It is a bit off the beaten path, but that made it even better for us. This was a bucket-list trip for all of us, and this house made it better than any of us expected. HIGHLY recommend this place!

Beautiful House Directly on the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four spent 11 days at the Makaha Beach house. We enjoyed the beach, the amazing views, and the house. The house was very secure, clean, well equipped for all our needs. Kitchen had everything we needed. The outside grill was very nice as well. Thank you for sharing your amazing jewel on the beach with us Jackie! We will be back for sure!

Beautiful location, well-equipped house.

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous sunsets over Makaha Bay in this well appointed house. Our family (2 grandparents, two parents, one sibling and one adult daughter had a fabulous Thanksgiving week there.

Front lawn opens onto a small cove. Snorkel to see green turtles and fish in the cove right in front of the house. Makaha beach is a short walk over the sand to the north. Sleep to the sound of waves crashing on the seawall.

Comfortable beds, adequate bathrooms, well equipped kitchen with new stove, dishwasher and fridge.

Pricey, but worth it!

Amazing, beautiful and away from it all

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at this house. I had no issues with contacting the owner the few times I needed to, she responded within a few minutes each instance. This home was away from it all and it was a 30-60 minute drive to go do most everything but it didn't bother us one bit....we were on vacation :) . I highly recommend this home if your looking for peace and quiet and to get away from the hustle and bustle of the mainland. Thank you for everything Jackie!!!

Great location with amazing view

  • 5 of 5

My family of 7 stayed here for a week and we absolutely loved it! Loved falling asleep every night to the sound of the waves and the view every morning was breathtaking! We walked to the local Makaha beach, which took us less then 10 mins and there is a little cove near the house where the sea turtles come up to sun bathe! My girls loved it. It takes an average about an hour to get to your major site seeing locations, but wasn't a big deal to us since it didn't really seemed like an hour drive due to all the wonderful sceneries. I would highly recommend this lovely home and Jackie's response turnaround was quick! Thank You, Jackie, for making your home part of our wonderful Hawaii vacation!

Threatened and Harassed by owner, addicts stealing anything not tied down

  • 1 of 5

Upon arrival to the west side we noticed the homeless encampments were everywhere.

I lived in Makaha in the past but now that thousands of homeless are in the area we had planned and gotten permits for a wedding, so we decided to ask (on day 2 of 7) the owner thru vrbo msg if we could change our wedding venue from the proposed site, to her house. Since it was only 12 people And the the lease said written permission was needed for over 15, we just thought it would be a kind gesture to offer to pay her an event fee. She Didn't get the message from me, instead she got a message from a neighbor 4 days later saying we were setting up for a big party, but since she hadn't replied we set up partially at her house and a friends house a block away for a contingency plan in case we were told "no" at the last second.

Then incredibly drunk, she calls and tells us the cops have been notified, were not welcome and we better leave. Ive saved that voicemail.

Her belligerent sister threatens to get her local thug friends to "take care of us".

I called vrbo hoping we could leave and pay for the time we'd been there, but get out now and they said, "geez that's not nice", and that's that.

Truth is the view is great, but the 3 downstairs bedrooms all have small beds, (hence no pics or details on the site) that and the fact we had a meth head come running into the property at 6 am trying to steal my cousins laptop. When I ran down to confront him he just stared at me like a zombie then ran off screaming "Aloha nui yada yada" scary stuff. We had to designate someone to stand guard and stay home AT ALL TIMES or we would've been robbed blind!

Needless to say we don't recommend this house, as for the coast, its gorgeous and raw, but I recommend staying at a more secure house with a more stable owner.

Owner's Response: Suffice it to say this guest is upset because his plan to use the house for his wedding was discovered and denied. Out of respect for my neighbors the house is not rented for events of any kind. Please keep that in mind before booking with me. Mahalo, Jackie
