About the property

A unique 1 acre private property running from the main highway to the beachfront. Your neighbors to the right are on a 3 acre property and your neighbors to the left are on a 1 acre property (i.e., this place is pretty private and quiet).

Gently sloping white sand beach, great for kids....waves for boogie boarding and body surfing. Boogie Boards, Beach Chairs, etc. available for tenant use......

When you are not peering at the ocean on the front side of the house, you are looking directly across to ranchland and the beautiful Koolau Mountains on the back side of the house....a unique experience and property indeed...

Excellent location. Vintage feel. Exactly what we wanted for the island experience.

  • 5 of 5

The house had everything needed from sleeping space, utilities, bbq, beach items. We especially loved the views from the living room and spent tons of time on the back deck and in the yard hanging out as a family and enjoying the easy beach access. Located to everything we wanted and away from the touristy locations. Sunrise is in view directly behind the house. AMAZING! Close to shops, food, activities. Herb was a great host, too. Great spot!!

Owner's Response: Mahalo Chris - I'm glad that we could provide a memorable experience for your group. This is the Hawaii that I grew up with - hearing the surf, watching the sunrise and relaxing on the beach. Thanks for the great review. Herb

Fun family staycation

  • 4 of 5

The beach house was exactly as pictured. Not new by any means and there were a few items that could use repair or refurbishing but overall a great getaway for the family. Unfortunately the beach was littered with washed up debris and there seemed to be an influx of man of war on the beach fronting the property. We were able to walk down the beach some ways to a spot that has far less debris and man of war which was perfect for the kids. Hoping we can make this an annual staycation spot for the family!

Our Hawaiian Cabin Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The property and house were exactly as described and depicted in the photographs. Perfect for us, three generations including a toddler. We called it our Hawaiian cabin home, rustic ambiance, with viga wood ceilings and old fashion louvered windows to let in the sea breeze, a fully equipped kitchen, even with a popcorn maker, comfortable seating and beds, wonderful covered lanai with an ocean view. Lots of towels, beach chairs and toys and a charcoal Webber grill, fins but no snorkel gear. Nice landscaping with the house surrounded by grass and beautiful Hawaiian plantings. Meandering short path leads directly to the ginger sand beach where we watched sea turtles feeding offshore every morning and evening. We virtually had the entire beach to ourselves during the week, it was busier during the weekend, but it was fun to watch the locals surfing. Not a resort, not touristy, we absolutely loved it. Herb, the property manager, was easy to work with, very responsive and provided good tips about what to see in the area.

Owner's Response: Mahalo, I'm glad that you discovered and experienced our small piece of paradise. Our children loved coming out every summer, hanging out, playing on the beach, boogie boarding and chasing sand crabs at night. It became our place to recharge and relax - peaceful, quiet and private. Thank you again for staying with us and for your wonderful review. Herb

Perfect Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 adults and 2 grandchildren stayed for a week, and it was wonderful. We originally had plans to explore the island on a daily basis. However, once we got to the house, we all found it so comfortable and relaxing, that we rarely ever felt like leaving. The house had every amenity we could need, and was clean and comfortable. The beach was perfect and safe for our young grandchildren, ages 3 & 8. We would recommend this home to others and will definitely stay there again. Thank you Herb, it was great!

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the house with my wife and our three year old son. The backyard casually slopes down towards beautiful Malaekhana Beach. The beach was serene, and never crowded. Even though all of the beaches on the island are considered public, this is as close as you can get to the feeling of having your own private beach. We spent our days exploring the north shore, and playing on the beach; building sand castles and body boarding. There are also lots of good hiking trails in the area. It was a nice change of pace from crowded Waikiki beach, and I would recommend it to families or couples.

Owner's Response: Aloha Andrew, I'm glad that you enjoyed your stay. The beach is most peaceful and private, glad that you and your family discovered how uniquely special Malaekahana is. Our daughters always enjoyed going out to the beach house and look forward to it whenever they are back in Honolulu. Thank you for your wonderful comments. Mahalo - Herb
