Amazing 3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath home, built in 2008, located directly on a beautiful, white sand beach! This beachfront home is well appointed with everything you will need to relax and enjoy paradise.

Wake to the sound of the surf and enjoy a walk on the practically private beach. Enjoy the seasonal changes of this beach while watching the abundant aquatic life such as sea turtles, whales (in the winter months) and dolphins right from the patio!

The house is located on the leeward (dry) side of Oahu in the charming town of Makaha where sunny days and beautiful sunsets are the norm. Only 30 miles from the airport and a world away from crowds. Only 12 miles to the resorts of Ko Olina (home of the new Disney resort) featuring fine dining and the islands best luau.

About Valerie

I have been coming to Oahu for many years and fell in love with Makaha. I love the laid back atmosphere, beautiful beaches, perfect weather, and seeing all the sea life here. Most importantly, there are no crowds! I had been looking for a house here for the last 3 years and finally found the perfect one. It is a newer architect-designed home directly on the most beautiful beach. The location and the home is everything my family and I dreamed about!

Valerie purchased this house in 2013

Quiet and Serene

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house. It comes with just about everything including Ketchup, mustard etc., so don't buy all that at the store. We loved the coolers as we went and adventured everyday. Turtle beach is a short walk from the house( at least that's what we called it) and a must. We did yoga on the patio and enjoyed sunsets from the lawn.

Absolutely beautiful home right on the beach! Excellent experience!

  • 5 of 5

This home is absolutely beautiful and is located RIGHT ON THE BEACH! It truly doesn't get any better than this! The house was very clean, spacious, and the rooms offer plenty of storage! The house comes with towels, cooking utensils, beach toys, and snorkel gear, which made our experience hassle free. We enjoyed several meals out on the patio listening to the waves crash on the beach and watching the amazing sunsets. It was beyond relaxing! The house is located close to markets, restaurants, hikes and other fun things to do in the area, which made exploring very convenient! I have nothing but wonderful things to say about this house and our overall experience. If you are looking for an ultimate vacation in Hawaii -this is your spot!! I can't wait to return! 5 stars!

Beautiful villa on the ocean

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house, rooms and beds are large, comfy, and clean, great layout for our gathering of 9. House is well equipped with towels , linens, some beach toys, barbque. Spent our mornings outside on the deck , with the sound and sight of the ocean right there, turtles and whales were sighted several times while we were on the beach. We rented a car and toured around island, lots to see and people very friendly. (The Crab Shack is a great place to eat.)Property manager Joe stopped by to see how we were doing and if we needed anything. Booking and payment was very easy to do with direct contact with owners, quick response to any of our questions .

Lovely piece of paradise, highly recommend.

Amazing time at this Makaha beachfront home!

  • 5 of 5

I just enjoyed a perfect week in paradise at this makaha home! The location is perfect if you want to just lounge at the beachfront property, but it's also located close enough to travel to other parts of the island and back for the day .

Very spacious and just as nice as a 5 star hotel !

The views are amazing.

We were able to hike, snorkel,lounge at the beach, StandUpPaddleboard and surf all from the location of the backyard !

Highly recommend!

amazing house

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an amazing time in this Makaha home! The house has a great, open layout and was perfect for our family. The beach is breathtakingly beautiful and practically empty! We felt like we had a private beach. We had a wonderful time snorkeling with turtles. The kitchen is well appointed and the beds are super comfortable. We were in paradise and will definitely be coming back!

A little bit of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We took the family up to this wonderful rental for a week. As soon as we walked in, and the everyone claimed their beds we began to explore. The house is completely updated with beautiful amenities, and every room was well designed!

From exploring the beach and swimming with the turtles, it just kept getting better and better! Great BBQ's on the lanai, surfing at the point, and cruising the island, this is a rental that was special and won' t be forgotten! We would definately go back to enjoy this awesome house again!
