Beach Front Rental at Makaha

Bedrooms 4
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Our property has been in our family since the early 1940's. We recently rebuilt the main house to accommodate our vacations with my elderly mother. Being part Hawaiian I have enjoyed the Makaha Beach environment for many years. Walking out in the early morning to search for shells, taking a leisurely swim in the surf that often includes a turtle swimming close by are incredible memories that I enjoy of this spot.

Surfing, Snorkeling, Kayaking, Biking and Sailing are some of the activities to enjoy.

This property was used by the Navy for landing shore activities during WWII. When WWII ended and my father was out there surfing he had the opportunity to purchase this lot. We have had many fond memories out here ever since.

About The Owner

I am part Hawaiian have had many wonderful years with family and friends on Oahu. Being a lover of water - this has been a perfect location for watching wildlife from the shore or on boat out of Waianae Harbor.

The Owner purchased this house in 1945

Why The Owner chose Mākaha

This was originally a private residence where my grandparents lived until their deaths. We have rebuilt the main house to accommodate vacations for myself and my elderly mother. We love the surf, sunsets and watching turtles/spinner dolphins and whales.

What makes this house unique

The beach is fantastic. We can watch the surf contests from our balcony as well as the whales migration without leaving our house.

Great Family Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed in the house for two weeks. I would recommend this house for anyone who wants a fantastic back yard right on the beach. We saw spinner dolphins from the lanai on several occasions, and yes they were out of the water spinning, monk seals on the beach and many, many, turtles. The younger group of family swam out to the turtle cleaning station. The house has everything you need for cooking, large kitchen table for playing games with the family, long counters to have buffet style dinners, picnic tables for the back lawn (we ate dinner out there several times), and beach equipment. Inga's Realty was great to book our trip through. This is the more rural side of the island, so rent a car if you want to travel around the island. Plenty of parking at the house. Thank you for sharing your house.

The real Hawaii

  • 5 of 5

This vacation needed to be far away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. From the momment the front door opened we knew the house wouldn't disappoint. The house was roomy, airy, well appointed and very clean. The location couldn't be beat. Over morning coffee on one of the two lanai's (one off each bedroom) we would comment to each other that it felt as if we had our very own semi private beach. A winter storm had passed to the northeast of the Islands and generated some high surf mid week and monster surf for the weekend we were there. We watched a surfing competition from the lanai where some waves must have reached 30 feet in height. Whale watching and perfect sunsets were part of every day life.

We had a very relaxing and quite vacation, but still managed to visit the north shore and downtown Honolulu.
