Beautiful beach with a spectacular view!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 absolutely loved it here! From swimming with turtles to watching dolphins and whales from our lanai, we couldn't get enough!! And the sunsets from the lanai-breathtaking! We were also able to watch surfing competitions from the yard.

Beds were comfortable, the fans kept us cool throughout the night, no need for ac.

The three huge patio doors facing the ocean make you feel like the living room/kitchen are part of the lanai!

The full kitchen and seperate bar area were awesome for food and drink prep-there are blenders!!

Outside there is a shower, boogie boards, a pool noodle and beach chairs to take down to the beach. Bring snorkelling gear, you'll want to swim with the turtles!

Some people on here had concerns about the area. We found everyone on the beach to be very friendly. The same can be said about the people we met at the various shops/stores we went to.

Thank-you Vicky! We had an amazing time and hope that one day we can come back!

Owner's Response: I am so happy your family enjoyed the stay at Makaha Sands. You were lucky to be visiting during the Buffalo Big Board Surf Competition. It's an annual event hosted by the neighbors on the right. Love to have you comeback or tell your friends about it so they can come too! Thanks, Vicky

Dirty and needs maintenance.

  • 2 of 5

Lovely home in a beautiful setting. However, the house was very dirty and in need of alot of maintenance. Most of the light bulbs were burned out and required a ladder to replace--which was not available. (We were told by the manager we didn't turn them on correctly. When maintenance was sent 3 days later--the light bulbs were burned out.) The stove top was oily and had dried food on it. The ovens both needed to be cleaned as they were splattered and had runs of food in them. We wanted to cook Christmas dinner so we turned both the ovens on to clean. The kitchen faucet was duck taped and just hung loose. The master bathroom toilet gave you a "ride" everytime you sat on it. My husband finally bought a washer and screw and fixed it. It is still the wrong size toilet seat. Guest bedroom has ants. Dirty linens from prior people still in the hamper. Centers of the room floors were cleaned but forget the base board areas--sand, dirt, and hair. When we complained the manager got very defensive. She was told the smoke detector was chirping and needed new batteries. After spending a sleepless night because the smoke detector started squeeking every hour--I demanded something be done. She sent a man and he simply dismantled it and removed the detector. I have no sense of smell and rely heavily on smoke and fire detectors. Where is the concern for the safety of your clients ? There are no words to describe the filth of the guest bathroom light fixtures and rugs. Makes you wonder if the property manager ever goes over and even checks this home? The back porch and ocean views were the main redeeming areas for this home. This is a lovely home but needs some major attention. I am returning to Hawaii in 3 months but will not be renting this home.

Great Beach House, Excellent Location!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in many rental houses throughout the islands and this one might be our favorite! The location on sunny side of the island can't be beat and this beachfront Makaha house is awesome! We've done sightseeing throughout Oahu in past trips and enjoyed simply hanging out at the house watching the sunsets from the back porch with a beautiful beach in front of us. This area is also less touristy and more of local experience. Owners were a breeze to work with. Of all the rental houses we've stayed, this one we'll definitely be back!
