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.

Wonderfully Welcoming!

  • 5 of 5

Extremely well furnished Ohana. Carol is very gracious.

It comes with everything you need to enjoy your time on Oahu. Even though it is near the main house, we had plenty of privacy and quiet. Beautiful morning sunrise coffees just a walk from our door. Plenty of snorkeling right off your very own beach.

Much better than staying in the madness of the large resorts.

We met up with Danny from West Side Surf and got a private lesson just a few miles away!!

We loved the studio, just walk down the steps and you are at a beautiful secluded beach! Carolyn is a great host, welcomed us upon our arrival and provided us all information we needed during our stay. Highly recommend it!

Cleanest place ever!

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully cared for property. Ideal for a peaceful and relaxing time directly on the beach at an affordable rate.

Have no idea what the surrounding town, area was like. Our goal was to spend the days taking full advantage of the beach and ocean and it was perfect!

The space was luxurious, very accommodating and so clean. Photo doesn't do it justice.

The property is directly oceanfront with beautiful grounds that are meticulously maintained.

  • 5 of 5

It is obvious Carolyn and Joe love the property. The setting is serene and peaceful and only a short walk to Makaha beach. They both were very welcoming and helpful. This is definitely a "must return to" spot if you are ever on Oahu, especially if you want to get away from the chaos of Honolulu and enjoy laid back. Hawaiian time....

Beautiful oceanfront property

  • 5 of 5

This property has all of the amenities you could ask for on a week long vacation. We enjoyed sitting out back watching the waves crash against the beach and the surfers attempt to catch some waves.
