Private oceanfront house located on Oahu's West (Waianae) Coast near Makaha Surfing Beach. Enjoy the deep-blue ocean and great sunsets from the lanai and large grass lawn. Nap to the sound of the waves. The property fronts coral reefs and is five houses to a sandy cove where green turtles come to shore and bask in the sand.
This estate consists of 2200 sq. ft of living space -- 1400 sq. ft 3BR 2BA on the second level (main house) and an additional 800 sq. ft 2BR 1.5 BA on the first level (ohana unit or in-law suite with separate entrance).
The main house is upstairs and consists of three bedrooms, two full baths, and is great for two families. Has a well stocked kitchen, living room, and is fully-furnished with 100% cotton sheets, towels, and beach towels. Comfortably sleeps up to 10. Three king size beds-one in each bedroom, two full size sofa beds with 3" memory foam toppers in the family room. We also a single futon mattress and 2 pack-n-plays. Updated in November 2016 with new living room, dining room, and family room furniture.
The ohana unit (in-law suite) downstairs consists of two bedrooms and 1.5 baths (comfortably sleeps up to 6). Full wet bar (a kitchen without a stove or oven), living room, fully-furnished with cotton sheets, towels and beach towels. One bedroom has 1 full size bed, the other bedroom has 2 full size beds. There is also a full-size pull-out couch in the living room. Great for teens and for those with limited mobility (no stairs). Includes Smart TV w/ basic cable and Amazon TV.
Please note: there is no interior access between the ohana/in-law suite and the main house. You must use the exterior stairs to go from one unit to the other. Also, as a disclaimer, I should note the ceilings between the upper floor and ground floor are thin. Not too bad for adults, but children tend to stomp, and those little footsteps can be heard clearly from downstairs.
For smaller groups, please ask about special pricing for only the main upstairs dwelling (3BR / 2 BA), sleeps up to 10 comfortably.
There is high speed internet access for your laptop/tablet/phone throughout, and cell phone reception is good.
Out of respect for my neighbors, I do not allow large functions, parties, or weddings. Only registered guests may stay at the property.
The beach cove (2 minute walk away) is one of the few places were sea turtles frequent most days, you can snorkel with them and tropical fish like Humu'humu'nuku'nuku'apua'a
Makaha is on the west coast of Oahu about 20 min past Ko-Olina and the Disney Aulani resort. The road ends five miles further up at beautiful Yokohama Beach. The west side (Waianae Coast) is a slice of local culture, a great place to go slow and enjoy the beauty. The house sits two blocks from the main road in a quiet neighborhood, with an automatic gate and lots of parking. Restaurants and shopping are three miles away in the town of Waianae (why-an-eye). It is about 45 minutes from the Honolulu Airport and an hour from Waikiki.
This is a non-smoking house, but outside and on the lanai is fine.
