About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps up to 16)

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.

Hideaway ... Awesome oasis!

  • 5 of 5

We like loved this place, it’s totally secluded so you have your own oasis with this property! The views are great and the layout of the house allows for multiple family privacy! Ashlee is very responsive although we didn’t need her much but when I did text she responds right away! We will book this place again and highly recommend!

Just wanted you to know how much we enjoyed our stay in the Makaha house! This was our first time to Hawaii and we came in from all over the states 16 of us for 10 days and we definitely had plenty of space. Ashley was so helpful with any questions we had and making sure we were comfortable. The house was well equipped and close to everything! Turtle beach is just a few houses down, we saw turtles everyday! The neighbors were very nice and the neighborhood was quiet. We would definitely stay again!

Excellent place to stay in Oahu

  • 5 of 5

Right from the start Ashlee the property manager was very attentive and gave us plenty of local tips such as restaurants, and entertainment. The house comes with many amenities during your stay such as pots, pans, toilet paper, towels, washer dryer, laundry soap, and even some spices and oils for cooking. The view is incredible and perfect for catching amazing sunsets over the ocean and the backyard is perfect for older kids to run around and play. The beach/cove 5 houses down was nice to see the sea turtles basking in the sun in the afternoon. If you are up for a light trek there are some really nice beaches about 10-15 minute walk away as well down the main road. The area and neighborhood was pretty quiet minus some of the what I assume is wild chickens and roosters running around. The house met our needs wonderfully and the staff was very nice.

We really enjoyed ourselves. The house was fully loaded and very safe.

This little part was broken on the dryer door and it was not staying closed for our clothes to dry, but someone cAme out and fixed the problem and the dryer was great. It just shows that if something is wrong they come out to fix it as soon as possible. So that was awesome. When it rains, bugs come out but i didn’t see any in the house, so that was great.

My family and I really appreciate Ashlee. She was very helpful and Sweet.

Thank you guys so much for everything

We loved this property

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at this house. It was perfect for us. Lots of room for the grandkids to run and play. We enjoyed yoga in the mornings and talking and laughing at night on the lanai's in the evening. The kitchen was well stocked, we made good use of it! Thank you for providing a relaxing atmosphere.
