About Pat White
Born and raised on the island of Oahu, we found ourselves on the mainland for many years and reminisced about childhood memories of discovering life in tide pools at our family's beach cottage. After a 10 year search we found a home--the Makaha Pole House--where we can create memories with our children. We love the unspoiled beauty of Makaha and the time we spend watching the waves, seeing dolphins and whales, and enjoying the cooling tradewinds. Simply put, we love Hawaii and Makaha and hope you will love your visit to the Makaha Pole House!
Pat White purchased this House in 2012
Why Pat White chose Mākaha
Why Makaha you might ask, because Makaha is a place where time stood still. I can still sit out on the deck chairs, early in the morning and watch fishermen with hand thrown nets waiting for fish to swim by and catch. Where spinner dolphins still entertain you, right in front of your eyes or the warm sun setting in full color from your deck chair. That is why we waited patiently for the right place to come along.
What makes this House unique
Makaha Pole House is our home. It is where our kids can enjoy the beauty of rediscovering the old tide pools, catch waves on a boogie board or enjoy the spectacular sunsets with ohana (family). The lanai (deck) is where we (and you will) spend most of your time. Pictures can not capture the beauty of the view or the sound of the waves on the coral reef. When you arrive you will walk in the furnished comfortable house (say 'wow') and head to the lanai to watch the waves and look for dolphins and whales. You know that you are staying in paradise!

Beautiful oceanfront house!
This was our family vacation for the year. There were 6 in our party...the house was a perfect size for us. Our daughter & her friend both 20 years old enjoyed having the downstairs to themselves. We managed to explore most of the island during our stay. Driving anywhere does take some time though as traffic was heavy no matter when we traveled. I was up every morning enjoying my coffee on the lanai watching for dolphins & whales(we did manage to see a couple of pods of dolphins in the morning)...my favorite part of vacation! We spent a few days exploring the lava rocks out front as well! Overall...a great experience! If we ever come back to Hawaii...we would definitely stay here again!
Watch the waves from the deck
If you want to hear the surf, watch the waves, and see dolphins, whales and turtles from the comfort of the lanai, then this is the place for you! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and highly recommend it. (You should note that if you want to visit Honolulu or the North Shore, expect an hour or more drive each way.)
best vacation home ever
If you want to get away and enjoy a real vacation life, this is the place. Its true as other says; we spotted dolphins and whales during our stay. Very quiet neighborhood and friendly neighbors. The house is full of ventilation. It had all the kitchen supplies needed. BBQ grill was clean and it worked great. The patio had super nice lightings and night along with the porch. There was a some water shoes and snorkeling and beach supplies. We stayed on a windy week where the winds were 10-20 miles/hr but did not feel any winds around the patio. The house had perfect wind blockage. We played cards outsides the patio and it was perfectly find even though it was a windy day. If you want to get away from the world and enjoy the ocean breeze with peace and quiet, this is the place to be at. Home owner was very nice and responsive. He made sure things went well during the stay. If you choose to saty here, youll have no regrets.
The house was delightful, and met our family's needs. The deck was awesome, spacious and difficult to leave. We had a special family vacation, and each of us has expressed the longing to return. Thank you for everything.
Beautiful property, lots of space off the commercial path
We really enjoy this property and the space it provided. There are a nice variety of beaches in the area, we especially enjoyed the protected one down the street as out kids are too little to have gone where most adults would go. We also like that the area wasn't trying to sell you the visitor tourist something at every turn. Nothing wrong with that either, but having an alternative, a place like this is nice.
This is the second time we stayed at this home and we will absolutely stay again. Here is what we loved: perfect view, amazing yard with versatile foliage, functional kitchen with plenty of ware for everyone, very comfortable beds AND futons with plenty of high quality linens, good airflow with doors and fans, three bathrooms all of which are very nice, good outdoor lighting for late night walks between floors, good layout for privacy when needed. Above all, that lanai! The lanai is gorgeous with comfortable furniture for everyone as well as a table for outdoor dining. There are sunscreens that move up and down as needed. It is covered mostly so rain or shine you are comfortable. The beautiful ocean is right at your front steps and the beautiful mountain range is directly behind you. The entire property is very tastefully cared for and decorated. Natural wood tones throughout. Prime whale watching. We really have zero complaints (other than the roosters waking a few people up but they did not bother me) and thank Pat so much for sharing her home with us. We will be back for sure. Bruce the caretaker is a gem which you will understand if you get the chance to meet him and spend a little time. Some regard Makaha as too rough around the edges for a good vacation. We completely disagree. The locals are warm and oh so funny if you just take the time to get to know them. Shopping at Tamura is great and has all that you need at reasonable prices. Their poke bar is to die for. We recommend this home 100%
Makaha Beach is Oahu's second most popular snorkeling site. The clear, aqua blue water with little current is superb for snorkeling in summer. There are underwater caverns, arches, and tunnels as deep as 40 feet. Sea life includes schools of taape, octopuses, several species of eels, green sea turtles, transiting dolphins, and sometimes manta and eagle rays. Across from Makaha State Beach, is a Souvenir and Ocean sports equipment shop, where you can either purchase or rent various equipment to enjoy ocean sports. One of the nicest, most peaceful and calm beaches in the area, both summer and winter, is called Waianae Beach at Pokai Bay. Located on this beach is the Recreation Area and the Waianae Beach Resort for the Military. It is located about 5 minutes from the house by car going south, just after passing Seven Eleven, and turning right on Army Street. Park on the street, and bring photo ID to pass the Security Gate. The Waianae Beach Club offers great food, and a fantastic ocean view from the dining lanai. The Club restaurant has restricted times of service. Kayaks, boats, and other beach accessories can be rented right there on the beach. A small store is conveniently located on the beach, stocked with all necessities for an enjoyable time at the beach. Visit the Disney Resort at Koolina, which is located about 20 minutes south of the property. For a round of golf or a brunch, check out the Makaha Resort and Golf Club, which is just 5 minutes from the house.
