"Endless Summer Oceanfront Escape" is a gorgeous, direct oceanfront, duplex home, walking distance to world-famous and beautiful Makaha Surfing Beach! Breathtaking, nightly sunsets, oceanfront dining/cocktails, whale watching, epic surfing, napping in the hammock, picking fresh limes/bananas from the garden, star-gazing, full moon sets, and falling asleep to the waves are highlights of the tranquil property. Beach gear is provided for fun in the sun. I can recommend lots of fun activities throughout O'ahu for all ages, including "friends and family" discounts on local surf lessons and dolphin excursions. I hope to see you soon. Aloha!
"Endless Summer Oceanfront Escape" is located on the first floor of a gorgeous, oceanfront, $1.4 million duplex home! This breathtaking property exudes paradise! The spacious and tranquil backyard and super-comfortable upper lanai offer prime spots for viewing the most amazing sunsets and moonsets, breaching whales and spinning dolphins, and the night sky full of stars! Our gated property offers a lush tropical garden with paths meandering through a variety of tropical flowers and mature lime and banana trees. And perhaps my favorite part of the "Endless Summer" home and property is falling asleep at night while listening to the waves and smelling the fresh salt water from the oceanfront bedrooms! Aloooooha!
Guests will enjoy the entire, private access first floor guest vacation unit, which features two oceanfront bedrooms, one full bathroom, an oceanfront living room, kitchen area, laundry room, oceanfront lower lanai, upper lanai (sunrise to sunset), yard/garden, full-sized propane grill, fire pit, hammock, beach chairs, beach towels, coolers, umbrella, and electric-gated driveway. Kitchen area contains full-sized refrigerator, full-sized stove/oven, microwave, toaster oven, electric hot plate, electric griddle, coffee pot, Keurig, blender, dishes, glassware, pots/pans, and utensils. The large, grassy oceanfront backyard contains a full-sized propane grill and a fire pit. Shared spaces with the owner (who resides in the second floor unit) include the beautiful and relaxing upper lanai, which is a relaxing space to gather for sunset cocktails and talkin' story to find out hidden places to see and visit throughout O'ahu, and the large, electric-gated driveway with plenty of free and safe parking.
Interaction with Guests
I have lived on O'ahu for 13 years and absolutely LOVE our island! I am extremely active and enjoy the outdoors! I would love to share information about my favorite beaches, hikes, excursions/adventures, sights, restaurants, etc. with you during your stay, or you are welcome to explore and relax on your own.
Makaha offers a completely different feel from the fancy touristy hotels, skyscrapers, restaurants, and shopping, which can be found in busy Waikiki. Makaha is a rural/rustic community comprised predominantly of local families, stray cats, and chickens. We have the most beautiful and secluded beaches, mountains, valleys, sunsets, and moon sets on the island! Nightlife in Makaha consists of sipping cocktails on the beach or the lanai at sunset, and grilling up some fresh local fish or veggies for dinner. Our home is one of the last six homes on the west side before the road ends.
"Endless Summer Oceanfront Escape" is located 30 miles from Honolulu airport. When possible, plan airline travel and excursions during non-rush hour times. Due to Makaha's rural location, I strongly suggest renting a vehicle during your stay. Plenty of parking is available in the large electric gated driveway.

I am a very social and active person, who thoroughly enjoys the outdoors! I would love to share information about my favorite beaches, hikes, excursions, sights, restaurants, etc. with you during your stay, or feel free to explore and relax on your own.

My husband and I visited Hawaii with some friends and stayed with Lori on our last day. The house was gorgeous, it had everything we could possibly need. The view was absolutely amazing, we saw a lot of whales while we sat out on the lanai. Lori was extremely helpful and pointed us out to every unique beach with special sites, like sea turtles, dolphins, and even an albatross nesting area! Multiple brochures and magazines were available that described the island, including local entertainment and dining. Lori was the best host, we could have never expected such wonderful hospitality. Anything we needed was available to us. Her company was super delightful and she's one of the most laid back and kind people you'll meet in Hawaii.
We have rented quite a few places on Oahu, loved them all but this has been our favorite by far!!
We had a great time. The location is absolutely amazing! Right on the ocean, view is incredible. We saw whales, beautiful sunsets. Unit is spacious, clean, comfortable, very well equipped for cooking. Lori had a lot of beach toys for kids, beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers, boogie boards, etc... We had everything we needed.
The surrounding area is great. Very nice beach within walking distance, even with kids and beach equipment. Other very nice beaches within short driving distance. We saw turtles sunning themselves at Aki'sbeach (3 miles or so away) 2 out of the 3 days we stopped there. It looked like there were some interesting hikes in the area, although we didn't have time to do any.
Lori was very nice, extremely helpful, and available. She was not at all intrusive and we felt that we had plenty of privacy. We really hope to stay there again and strongly recommend this rental!!
What an amazing location and an amazing host! Before we arrived Lori was providing us recommendations and insights. Upon arrival we were greeted with welcome arms and the most spectacular view (and sound) of the ocean.
The property was perfect - spacious, clean and comfortable. Lori had plenty of beach gear for us to use. There were several near by beaches and the closest was an short walk from the property. Lori was also kind enough to put us in contact with locals for surf lessons and a dolphin excursion. These were a real highlight to our trip.
We enjoyed being away from the hustle and bustle of the Honolulu area, and felt like a local. Lori was attentive, but also respectful of our space. I feel so fortunate that we found this property and had the opportunity to get to know Lori.
If you are looking for a laid back locale and want to feel like a local, this is the perfect spot.
We miss you Lori!
Beautiful and very relaxing
Well maintained property with beautiful views away from hustle and bustle
Very nice, quiet home with amazing views.
I can't say enough about how great the home owner Lori was to us. Very personable and quick to take care of whatever need we had. I definitely recommend staying at her home if you can. Amazing views and comfortable beds.
Beautiful sea views
The sea views from this home are simply amazing! The house was quiet, clean, and well appointed with everything you need. Lori was extremely helpful in answering questions and providing recommendations for things to do in the area. Would highly recommend staying here.
