About the property

Studio, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Aloha! Experience paradise at our private oceanfront estate with majestic mountain views and the soothing sounds of the surf. Makaha is still the best kept secret on Oahu for vacationers and locals alike needing to escape the hustle and bustle of city life.

Nestled on the world famous Makaha Surfing Beach one can imagine taking a beautiful stroll on the sand, all the while exploring tide pools and taking in the year round flora and fauna of the ocean environment.

For snorkelers, the waters ahead are known to the locals as "Makaha Caverns." In them, one sees countless varieties of colorful fishes, sea turtles and if you are one of the fortunate few, playful dolphins. It is a playground like no other.

If you surf, Makaha and the entire West-side is the place to be! Depending on the time of year, Makaha is known to have a North, South, or West swell. Surfer beware because when Makaha is PUMPING--usually in the Winter months--we boast twenty plus-foot waves.

Another notible moment here is the breathtaking whale season, with whale sightings all day long! A common sight during this time are tufts of adult whale sprays with a little baby spray as these magnificent creatures frolic through Makaha.

Come see for yourself all the amenities that we have to offer for your great island getaway vacation. We are five minutes away from a golf course and resort where you can take on a round of golf and have maitai's and margarita's on the 19th hole.

E Komo Mai! Come and enjoy our natural Hawaiian hospitality and culture that you would expect and deserve when visiting these beautiful islands. Mahalo.

Enjoyed our stay!

  • 4 of 5

Clean and cozy! We enjoyed our stay and loved that the ocean/beach was just thru the backyard (which is beautiful and well kept)! The owners were sweet and very helpful! There was definitely a lot of cats (outside) but my husband who is allergic to them did not have a problem. I didn't realize the washer and dryer was not in the unit (it's downstairs in the garage)... But still we enjoyed our stay! Peaceful and away from the busyness of Honolulu at the end of the day. Thanks for helping make our trip one to remember!

A secure and restful paradise with luxury amenities

  • 5 of 5

This is a very desirable west side location that is on one of the loveliest beaches in the area. We stocked up on groceries on our way so didn't eat out much. We appreciated not having to carry a key, the easy parking, the studio extras and amenities, and Carolyn's welcoming manner and suggestions. This was a great deal away from waikiki hustle and bustle. We almost felt like locals.

Wonderful Studio Apartment on the beach

  • 5 of 5

Carolyn went out of her way to make our experience the best as possible. We stayed at their beach house and it had all the amenities required. We woke up looking at the mountains and can hear the ocean. The back yard is right on the beach and you can walk into the water there, but not the best for swimming. However, the Sandy beach is only a 1 minute walk down the beach. Carolyn was able to accommodate our late check out request since our flight left at 10pm. She rearranged her schedule and let us stay as long as we needed. We would definitely go back to this Studio. Lots of local culture on the West Side and it was our favourite side of the island.
