About the property

Beach House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 12 MAXIMUM)

Aloha! Open the door, set down your luggage, unpack your stress and exhale! Welcome to the WITKIN OCEAN FRONT PROPERTY, a spectacular, private home with a solar heated pool and breathtaking ocean and mountain views to enhance your relaxation.

Located on Oahu’s NW shore, this gated, custom, 2 level home is situated on a double lot offering 170 feet of ocean front and a huge yard. Newly renovated and tastefully decorated, this retreat comfortably accommodates one family or a multi-family group, able to sleep 12 in beds.

Enjoy the beautiful master suite opening to the lanai with a luxury Cal King-size bed accentuated by magnificent ocean views; a second bedroom with a lux queen bed with beautiful mountain views and a third bedroom with a queen and a twin bed also with mountain views. The lower level private apartment open to groups of 7 or more is appointed with TV, a new luxury queen bed, a separate bedroom with three twin beds, and a full bath. Relax in the spacious upstairs great room or create a culinary delight in the fully-equipped, recently remodeled kitchen. Serve it with an ocean view in the dining room or out on the lanai.

Continue your Aloha experience outside, where an expansive backyard and covered lanai offer the perfect place to barbecue or just relax. An ocean front solar heated swimming pool overlooks the ocean and back at the mountains. Serene tide pools beckon from the lava beds on the ocean shores (NOT for swimming or snorkeling).

Surfing, boogie boarding, diving, swimming and snorkeling among the turtles and sunning are just a short walk away at the renowned Makaha Beach, Oahu’s best-kept secret. Other wonderful beaches line the coast. Crave even more adventure? Hiking, deep-sea fishing, scuba excursions, dolphin swims, and whale-watching expeditions may be easily arranged, as can golf and tennis at an ocean view course just 3 miles away.

We have everything you could want in a vacation get-away - the comfort of a large home with a solar heated swimming pool, free wi-fi, large flat screen TV's and an abundance of activities with the serenity and beauty of the ocean. All this is conveniently located within a 20 to 45 minute drive to the nightlife, sightseeing and dining in Ko'olina, Honolulu, Pearl Harbor and Waikiki. Come and experience the pure magic that is available in our part of Hawaii's Paradise.

About Kriss Smylie

Our beach house was purchased in 2011 by cousins from Portland and Santa Monica who have a love affair with gorgeous vistas and Hawaii in particular. This was both.

Kriss Smylie purchased this house in 2011

Why Kriss Smylie chose West Oahu

We fell in love with this property the minute we saw it. The views take your breath away with the huge double lot and enormous ocean view with a wonderful heated pool--We're in love. We come back a few times every year and it still makes us swoon. You will too. In fall and winter you can add the Humpback whales cruising by. It truly is our Paradise and it is lovingly tended.

What makes this house unique

When you walk up the stairs and look out the windows you will drop your bags and head for the water. It has a magical quality that is there even when you head back in and are facing our sacred mountain. Every aspect is breathtaking and when you float in the pool looking up at the coconut palms you'll lose track of time and think you're in heaven. We know you'll love it too.

Couldn't have been a better place to meet our needs

  • 4 of 5

This house was in a prime location since we were working at Kaena Point for 5 weeks, the best commute I've had in my travels there. We enjoyed BBQ's, sitting on the patio out back, snorkeling at the beach right down the road, etc.

The guys and I were all happy with our stay and will look at renting here again if work brings us back.

Perfect Paradise

  • 4 of 5

This place was the perfect location for our first Hawaiian vacation. The house is located along the shores of Makaha beach. Here we had the oppurtunity to meet some local people who showed us some areas to visit only known to them. The house was a perfect fit for our family, good size rooms with comfortable beds, nice kitchen with an amazing ocean views and the heated pool was perfect for my three small grandsons. We spend many evenings enjoying a full moon with the waves pounding the rocks on the beach. I would like return to this place in the future. I highly recommend this house to all who visit the island. The house manager was awesome.

Perfect Christmas Holiday in Makaha

  • 5 of 5

We are an extended family of 12 who stayed at this property over the Christmas holiday. It was the perfect spot. The house is big and adequately housed everyone young and old. The pool and patio are great - we spent many mornings and evenings watching waves crash below us and searching for whales - we saw them jumping out of the water almost every day. The location is a bit out of Honolulu but the drive was not bad and the house is close enough to public beaches and hiking. It was a great and memorable vacation. I would recommend this property to anyone seeking a similar experience.

Fantastic view, Great house= Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

There are no words for this house. Right on the water, heated pool, walking distance from one of the nicest beaches, and plenty of room for your entire family and then some!

We had two families, 11 people total and never once felt like we were on top of one another! Whether were in the pool, in the kitchen, or any where else on the property.

The management team is very responsive and very easy to work with! I would highly recommend renting this house.

Vacation Wedding Bliss!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Oh my where to start......just mind blowing beautiful !!! This house was just the perfect place for everyone in our group. We had no idea it was going to be like living in paradise for real. The pool was just awesome at keeping the kids entertained on days we all lounged around. We drove around the island one day stopping to check out all the beaches, while doing this we just had to make a stop at the Dole plantation for the kids to ride the train.We spent one day at the swap meet buying lots of souviners, cheap. All the guys had went out fishing with boom boom live bait charters and had a wonderful day with catching an over 200 lb. marlin and 175 lb. tuna... (Awesome)!!! We seen pearl harbor and don't forget the wet-n-wild water park. I think to top it off was when my daughter decided she wanted to go ahead and marry her 5 yr fiance, so after calling she found out that they came to her for everything, so the day before we checked out she did it !!! Now she has her beautiful memories of this house, yard, views, the island and all it had to offer her for a wonderful vacation and wedding wrapped up into 1 big wonderful memory not just for her but for all of us as a family too. I can say this is by far the best vacation we have had in a very long time. Thanks Kriss

We had lots of unopened food we left behind, and had to leave some marlin in the freezer so we made sure Billy and the house keeper knew it was there and to hopefully not let it go to waste.

Thank you again Kriss for allowing us to stay in this wonderful house, we hope to visit again soon.

Until then Mahalo
