Located on a Golden Sandy Beach Cove, we are direct ocean & cove front. A rare find, one of the few where sea turtles rest daily. You can see the beach & turtles from the kitchen windows, 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 1-3 couples or small families to enjoy the sights and sounds of the Ocean & visit the island Of Oahu. The home living areas have been remodeled in April of 2018 and has now been painted and has new windows, Air conditioners in main living areas as well as new ceiling fans in each bedroom.
Still close enough to Waikiki for a day trip, but far enough away to see the 'real Hawaii'. Amenities on site are kayaks, Stand up paddleboards 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 on earth and repeat visitors are very important to us. Many return year after year and book multiple years in advance.

Amazing dramatic coastline views
Overall the best location on the islands with views that change every minute.
While the feeling your in a far away place called "paradise" is present from morning coffee to sunset its a feeling not found elsewhere on Earth. We did not even turn on the air conditioners as the trade winds kept the home fresh & cool. The kids did not want to leave because who is going to feed the Duck & fish at the Koi pond. Best in class award for this one.
I love this place.
This is our 5th straight year and I am booked for the next 3 years as well.
Mahalo, & this place loves you guys as well, see you next year:)
Back in Time with Incredible Views
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
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!!
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.
Everything we could have asked for. Right on the beach!
A jewel, you won't want to leave!
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.
The house misses you guys as well. Thanks for leaving it so nice :)
I hope to see you in the future at Makaha On the Beach- Back In Time
Boogie Boarding, Stand-up paddle board, Kayaking, Surfing, Deep sea fishing or shoreline fishing. Tide pools, resting spot for endangered species like Monk Seals and Green Sea turtles + Whales and dolphins pass right out front
