Beautifully furnished 5 Bedroom Home

Aloha! My husband and I just recently moved to Makaha from the mainland and hoped to lure my mom to move here by purchasing a large home which to us is considered a duplex. In Hawaii they consider it an ohana ( Mom decided not to let her 'stay-cation' begin until she decides to retire, which in my opinion will not be anytime soon. The result is a vacant, beautifully furnished 5 bedroom and 3 bath oasis. Not only does it have the standard 'fully furnished' amenities, but it's 'fully loaded' for fun!! ( fishing poles and light tackle, snorkels, body boards, life jackets, etc) and for young families...high chair, playpen, stroller, etc Prior to moving to Paradise, we travelled extensively and recognize how hard and expensive it can be to pack 'everything but the kitchen sink' so we have taken care of everything for you. Our guests are very important to us, and are always available for any of your needs, questions, etc. We are new to the world of vacation rentals and don't have many reviews yet. We invite you to help change that;)

Worked for our Large family gathering great, and was a real island neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

Having a bedroom for each of us married couples, my disabled dad on the main floor, and my single brothers was wonderful. We had a kitchen to utilize for meals and snacks to save money and a dinner table large enough for ALL of us to eat at together. If you are not getting a rental car, it is a long ride w/public transit, but we had one and had no problems doing either when splitting into smaller groups of doing activities. The home was clean, the manager Tanya great if we had questions for where supplies were, and helpful with local info. You can hear the neighbors chickens every morning, fun and nice reminder of my family's country days. Each room has AC which is nice since we wound up there during an unusual heat/humidity wave. The beds are comfy, laundry facilities are nice to have w/children with you, and hose outside to utilize when you come walking back form the little neighborhood beach! And yes we even saw turtles eating on the rocks in the ocean while there! Thank you for the great place to call home temporarily.

A wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and comfortable and the beach was pleasant and fun. This was my first time using HomeAway, but it will not be my last. My complements to the owner and staff. It made our trip enjoyable and relaxing. I enjoyed staying away from the tourist areas , but we could get to them easy enough. I would recommend this to people i know. I plan another trip to Hawaii and plan to use HomeAway again.

Family Reunion in Makaha

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion on the west side of Oahu. I am so happy we decided to stay here.

We had a fabulous time and the home is beautiful with all the conveniences we could ask for.

I would highly recommend it to any family staying on the west side of Oahu.

Very clean & relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay! Had all that you needed, Tonya was super awesome! Melissa was great as well! It was a real taste of local Hawaii! Aki beach is super close and has many turtles that beach and as well swim

With you. You can snorkel and see many fish as well. There were a few reviews about the roosters & mean dogs, the roosters were not as bad as some said (didn't bother us & the neighbor was extremely nice!) not once did the dogs even bark at us or cause any issues with being in the back yard. Overall we enjoyed our stay! Aloha 🌺🌴🍍
