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 private 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 ocean front property which includes an adjacent vacant lot. The property offers 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 to sleep a MAXIMUM of 12 guests for a minimum of 5 nights.

The upstairs living area includes a beautiful master suite opening to the lanai with a luxury Cal King-size bed accentuated by magnificent ocean views. A second bedroom is outfitted with a luxury queen bed with beautiful mountain views. A third bedroom includes 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 a TV, a new luxury queen bed and an adjacent, separate bedroom includes three twin beds with a full bath in between.

Relax in the spacious upstairs great room or create a culinary delight in the fully-equipped, recently remodeled kitchen. Serve any meal with an ocean view in the dining room or out on the lanai.

Continue your Aloha experience outside, where an expansive yard and covered lanai offer the perfect place to barbecue, eat a meal or just relax. An ocean front, private swimming pool overlooks the ocean while looking east are beautiful mountain views. 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 north and south of the house. Crave even more adventure? Hiking, deep-sea fishing, scuba excursions, dolphin swims and whale-watching expeditions may be easily arranged, like golf at an ocean view course just 3 miles away.

Why Marilyn Johnson, owner/manager chose West Oahu

We fell in love with this property the minute we saw it. The views take your breath away as well as the comfort and privacy of the huge double lot and enormous ocean view, with a serene, private, solar heated swimming pool. We come back a few times every year and it still makes us swoon. You will too. In Fall and Winter you can enjoy sights of 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, which has a magical quality even when you turn your sights back east and you face our sacred mountain. Every aspect is breath taking 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 believe you'll love it too.

It REALLY is exactly like it looks in the pictures! Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

I met my family from New Zealand, Idaho and Pennsylvania and spent a week here. We were ten adults and two children and we couldn't have had a more perfect place and experience than we had. Everything was wonderful and to my surprise it REALLY is just like you see in the pictures. Everything was clean and very well appointed. We all like to cook and each of my adult children and partner took a night to shop, cook and clean-up. (Didn't I raise them well?) We had Thai night, Korean night and Mexican night and were thrilled that we had everything we needed and then some, there was even a rice cooker and chop sticks.

The location was equally stunning and impressive. The property is on a point so when you sit in those chairs by the rock wall you don't hear or see anyone else. It's also on a large double lot with lots of mature trees so you don't even know it the neighbors are home. My granddaughters had a great time playing in the yard and gathering flowers as well as the hours spent in the pool. And, it was only about a 10 minute drive into town for groceries and anything else you need.

The concierge who met us when we arrived could not have been more helpful and kind. She answered all my questions and gave me great recommendations for places and people to check out. She answered my texts almost instantaneously if I had a question. (And yes, call Danny Boro if you want to learn to surf.) I had occasion to speak with the owner a few times before our stay and Marilyn is a jewel! Thank you!

I heartily recommend this choice. We loved it and I'm sure you will too.

Relaxing home away

  • 4 of 5

This house was perfect for our group of 10. The home is on the locals side of the island so it is quite a drive to any of the sights. Laying by the pool looking out at the ocean was so relaxing. Marilyn was very accommodating to our needs and communicated with us well. If you are looking for a quiet paradise away from the hustle and bustle of Honolulu and Waikiki this is the place to stay.

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.
