About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Located on a Golden Sandy Beach Cove, we are direct ocean & cove front. One of the few where sea turtles rest daily. Relax in the shade of palms or swim in the cove with the turtles. A great place to enjoy the Hawaiian sunsets, in fact the point we are on is known as Sunset Point. The comfy/clean 3 bedroom 1-1/2 bath cottage is perfect for couples or small families to enjoy the sights and sounds of the Ocean & visit the island Of Oahu.

Still close enough to Waikiki for a day trip, but far enough away to see the 'real Hawaii'. Amenities on site are kayaks, snorkel

gear and Boogie boards. The home is our personal weekend getaway

so we keep it well stocked with all the conveniences of home.

We have fish ponds and tiki's to enjoy but of course the ocean & sunsets are the main focal point for all who visit. Tiki torches are available to create the ambiance of old Hawaii and you are far from street noise so the ocean will rock you to sleep and the birds will wake you in the morning. Many have called it paradise and repeat visitors are very important to us. Many return year after year.

A jewel, you won't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

Tom, the owner was a wonderful host, from the time we made our booking to suggesting a rental car option. When we arrived there was a dish of fruit from the trees on his property. We were made to feel very welcome, and at home during our stay. We had a small issue with a toilet, and Tom was there right away with the part to fix the problem. A brand new fridge and microwave, comfortable beds, lots of comfy chairs and loungers on the lanai and in the yard. We will be back to this property, and a longer stay next time. We've only been home a few hours and already miss the cozy house, sound of the waves and birds, and the daily visits from the turtles at the beach, (which is 16 steps from the kitchen door). I have to say I feel a little reluctant to give a glowing review, only because I feel like keeping this place a secret. Thank you Tom, for a wonderful vacation experience.

Back in Time with Incredible Views

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't ask for a better relaxing place and a great host. Fruit Plate on arrival of harvest grown by the host. Free views of Hawaiian Green Turtles every day relaxing on the beach (even an unintended swimming with one). Home is roomy, clean and truly a reflection on how Hawaii was before the glitter of Waikiki. What a pleasant get away for us...Plenty of time to enjoy the scenery, and even watch only the TV we wanted, if we wanted. Bill, the female Mallard was a great friend and guest who often occupied the beautiful tropical fish pond out back. Great neighbors too.

Nuff said.. be back someday...Mahalo!

Great & Memorable Stay

  • 5 of 5

Tom was very good to work with us on our arrival and departing times. He met us at the house and was extremely nice and personable!! The house was great and worked well for our family of 7. It was well stocked with everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The neighbors on the property were very nice and pleasant as well. My kids loved the pet "Bill" that was there as well they are wanting one now!!

We were at the house when Hawaii had the missile scare and Tom & Kathy were great in telling us what to do!! They were a GREAT help!!

The only downfall I could find with this property was we were not able to spend as much time just relaxing that was wanted and we could only stay there for 7 days!

I would recommend this house to ANYONE!! Great Price, Great Location!! Would definitely stay there again on another trip!!

Owner's Response: Aloha, I m Glad you enjoyed your stay & of course Bill the the female Mallard duck. It was to bad we had the fake ICBM missile on route scare but it did make us all appreciate every day and give extra love to our families. At least you can say you had a NUCLEAR vacation at Makaha On The Beach- Back In Time. Thanks the house was left perfect and I hope to see you in the future for a month stay. ENJOY

Cute and cozy with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

Tom was an awesome host! The house was just as he described! We will miss waking up and going to bed every night with that view.. and turtles everyday! I won’t miss the drive but that is not to be counted against the house.. the house had all the amenities needed to live minus groceries. The neighbors were all so friendly! Can’t say enough about this home! I will recommend it to friends and remember it when we come back!!
