Beachfront House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible Beds, 2 Baths. Sleeps 6.
Why Lynette chose Waianae
Our family inherited this property from our Aunt whose husband was a contractor and built this house many years ago. Because it is on the west coast of Oahu and one of the most beautiful places on the island, we decided to turn it into a vacation rental so that other people could enjoy the natural beauty of this unspoiled paradise as much as we do. Although this house was built many years ago, we have totally renovated it so that our wonderful guest will have the benefit of the natural beauty of the land as well as the comfort of a retreat like home. Our beach house is located in a private cove where there are only two other houses with direct access to the beach on that side of the street. For that reason you will find very little local traffic, if any, on your own private beach. The house is also by a natural reef so that when you are snorkeling, you might get to see the local marine life up close. It is located on the west side of the island where it is sunnier and drier than any other place on Oahu. In fact, when it is raining on other places of the island, you will still be having the sun shine down upon you. Because the sun sets on the west side of the island, your days will be longer and sunnier which means you will be lounging on the beach longer soaking up that sunshine so that when you return home it will be with a beautiful tan.
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Relaxing home base on the beach.
We loved our stay here! The house was neat and tidy and falling asleep to the sound of crashing waves was fantastic. Herman and Julie made us feel right at home and were fabulous hosts. From showing us where to spot sea turtles, sharing mangoes, lupitas, and Herman's famous fruit pie, they went above and beyond to make our stay memorable.
We are a family on the go, go, go and drove all over the island to see the sights and enjoy all Oahu has to offer, however, we loved having the beach house as a relaxing home base to begin and end our busy days. This side of the island is relaxing and nice to decompress after traveling through Honolulu traffic and competing with other tourist at attractions.
Our daughters (ages 7 and 9) loved the instant beach access to play in the sand and I already miss having my morning coffee in the swing on the quiet beach. The view of the stars from the beach and the bedrooms were breathtaking as were the sunsets.
If you are looking for a relaxing oasis in Oahu, I highly recommend staying here! You will leave refreshed, renewed, and with new friends!
Aloha and Mahalo!
Awwww we are absolutely THRILLED that you enjoyed your stay! Please come back soon. We love having wonderful visitors like you come and share this paradise with us. We are blessed to have visitors like you. Hope to see you again soon.
Island stay May 13-18 2019
What a great place to stay in Hawaii. The house was in a great location right on the beach, such a beautiful walk anytime of the day. Great reef to snorkel on or a short walk for fishing or a hike. When relaxing outside the breeze is amazing and the chickens are entertaining. The caretakers were great and very helpful when we had questions or if we needed anything. Lynette, the homeowner, personally called us to finalize arrangements and answered any questions that we had in regards to the property. The location of the house is great, within minutes to grocery store (Tamura's or Waianae grocery store) close to gas, fast food, pharmacy, anything you may need if you forget anything from home. Overall our stay was amazing and would recommend this home if you are looking to have a relaxing beach vacation on Oahu without all the hustle and bustle of Waikiki!
Patrick, Thank you soooooo very much for choosing to stay with us. We loved having you come visit with us. We are truly blessed to have AMAZING visitors like you. Mahalo and Aloha
This is the second time we have stayed in this house and would stay every time we come to the island. It’s a home away from home. Julie and Herman treat you like there own family!
We are absolutely THRILLED that you chose to stay with us again. This is really your home away from home. We are so blessed to have wonderful visitors like you and your family. Aloha and Mahalo Chelsea. Can't wait for you to come again.......
This will be considered our 2nd home and our ❤s belong here with Julie and Herman (caretakers of the property) My husband, Olivia our (8 years old) granddaughter and I stayed at this beautiful beach house for 7 days! The house is perfect even with ceiling fans and other floor fans if necessary. We kept the windows open all day and night and the tradewinds kept us so cool in the evenings. The ocean waves whispered us to sleep each night! We shopped for groceries at the local supermarket, which had a wonderful selection of food, beer, wine and deli! The prices were very reasonable ! I cooked breakfast every morning and drank my coffee on the lounge chair looking at this Incredible view of palm trees and ocean! We only left the property for site seeing and wished we just stayed "home". We suntanned, hunted for sea glass, and played in the water to our hearts 💕� content. We never had our own private beach and this beach was fantastic! This house has everything you need and more! We were so lucky to have Julie and Herman our caretakers! Herman has many Hawaiian cooking qualities too! If you needed anything they were there to help at any giving time! Our granddaughter loved the cold coconuts provided by Herman! A few blocks over Julie took us to another "secret" beach! We watched the Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles bask in the sun!!! We also snorkeled with them as well! We are booking again! Mahalo for making our vacation perfect each and every day!! We miss our beach house but we will be back!
Seriously.....CONSIDER THIS YOUR 2nd HOME!!!! We LOVED having you come to visit us. Glad you had a great time. We are so blessed to have visitors like you and your family. See you soon!
This is a great little place that although is off the main road, once you arrive it is very quiet and you are right in the beach. The caretakers, Herman and Julie couldn’t have been more welcoming and accommodating. Herman spent time teaching our son how to fish and he even caught some! Then we enjoyed the catch the next evening courtesy of Herman’s grilling. Herman was so kind and patient and is a wealth of information on the ocean which was fascinating to a future marine biologist! Julie is a lovely person who is so welcoming and kind.
Being able to truly relax was possible because the beach is right there and very quiet - we were the only ones there!
The beach is great for snorkeling but not so much for swimming because of the rocks- but a short walk down the beach and you can enter to swim.
We even have the pleasure of meeting “Benny” the sea lion who visits and sunbathes there.
The house has everything you need and if something is not there I am sure Julie would find it for you!
We will be back!

Experience of a lifetime
The view and ocean location was amazing. Whales, dolphins and seals off the shore. Our hosts were great. . .flexible, hospitable and wonderful. Snorkeling right off back yard. Ocean and sand 10 feet from the house.
Thank you so much for coming to visit us. We are so blessed to have wonderful visitors like you. Please come back to visit us again. Mahalo and Aloha.
We are a beach front with ocean property, so you will have lots of sand to lay on to get your beautiful tan 24/7 all year round. White sandy beach is just 10 steps away from your door.
Golf: There are three world class golf courses very near to our beach house. The Ko Olina golf course is Oahu's premier Ocean View Championship Golf Course designed by Ted Robinson. It is an 18 Hole Championship Golf Course which provides exceptional water features, multi tiered greens, expansive landing areas, no parallel fairways and measures up to 6,867 yards from the back tees. It is a 10 minute drive from our house. The Makaha Resort Golf Course is about 2 minutes away by car. This golf course was designed by William F. Bell to accent the stunning natural landscape of Makaha Valley. This championship course was acclaimed for its beauty as much as its rigor by Golf Digest, and was named the Island's best course by Honolulu Magazine. This classic 18 hole, 7,077 yard, par 72 course calls for a variety of shots and just about every club in your bag. With a USGA rating of 73.2 it challenges professionals and amateurs alike. Those with a sense of history will delight knowing that Hawaii's royalty used Makaha Valley for their recreation. The peacocks seen and heard throughout the valley were a gift from King Kalaukaua to the owner of the historic Makaha Valley Ranch more than 100 years ago.
