I have lived in Makaha since 1973. We have 4 golden

Richard Cayer purchased this studio in 1989
You should see the big surf from October to March here.
It is just like the North Shore of Oahu. Our place is as
close as you can get to the waters edge. A photographers
dream come true.
Quiet and peaceful location.
We were very impressed with our stay with the warm friendly atmosphere. We felt we belonged there. The retrievers also made us welcome.
We stayed for 10 nights. Everything about the accommodation, facilities, appliances and location were first class. Many evening we spent eating outdoors and using the barbeque. Even the insects were friendly.
The photos do not do this accommodation justice. We felt safe and secure throughout our stay.
Waking up to a view of the ocean which is real close and drifting off to sleep at night with the sound of the sea is so relaxing.
Within 200 metres there is a natural safe swimming hole just perfect for young and old.
In the ocean on most occasions I swam with turtles. Ideal for swimming, snorkling and cooling off in the ocean.
Shopping for stores was near but we found the supermarket slightly further away had a better selection of fresh fruit and vegetables. More selection of wine and other staple items.
Nearby there are tennis courts and a natural harbour used by many local fishermen. A great place to visit.
A rental car is a necessity as the accommodation is approximately 40 minutes from the City. Within an hour you can travel anywhere you wish on the Island, depending on the traffic conditions.
We certainly plan to return and have recommended this accommodation to many. We had a great vacation made even more special by Richard and Gerry with their friendliness, generosity and warmth.
We were apprehensive just like the last reviewer was. Not sure how this place would be. The studio was beautiful, just as described. Had most of everything we would need for our 10 day stay. We wanted a quiet place. We got it! The road dead ends about a mile from the house. Not too much traffic, and nice and quiet. It is a long way from the hustle and bustle of the tourist areas. The view is magnificent!! The waters edge is 80 feet from the door of the studio. The property is landscaped nicely. The palm trees frame the view of the ocean perfectly. We enjoyed watching the surfers while we relaxed on our porch. If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing vacation, this is the place to be! Mahalo Richard and Gerry for an ideal place and for your wonderful hospitality. We hope to stay with you again in the future!
We booked our vacation for a 12 day visit and we were a bit apprehensive at first, since we hoped that the rental would be as advertised. Well, let me say that the photos DO NOT do this home justice.
As we pulled in, there was a secure gate to the property.
We sat there and looked as we waited for Richard to let us in. Our first thoughts… this can’t be the right place.
We double checked our address… and it was where we were suppose to be.
Richard opened the gate and welcomed us very warmly. He and Gerry are both genuine and warm people. We were greeted by friendly bouncing golden retrievers, all of which had stuffed toys in their mouths, as though they were offering us gifts. I fell in love with these gentle giants during my stay there and looked forward to a morning greeting from them as I ventured out for the day.
Richard let us into the home and my my mouth dropped. It was far more spacious than the pictures showed. It was immaculately clean and equipped with everything you would EVER need for a vacation. I looked around the room, trying to see everything as we were shown around.
There was such a warm and had an inviting atmosphere. They thought of everything.
The bathroom had towels, and lotions, and even some suntan lotion and aloe.
The bed was comfortable and equipped with sheets and extra fluffy pillows.
There is a video and music library, that we did not use, but it was nice that it was available.
There is a fully equipped kitchen and a convenient laundry area.
There were night lights in the rooms and I was convinced that I could smell the island flowers as I walked around. I was in awe and I know I could go on and on describing the perks of this home.
Then, he slid open one of the two sliding doors… we stepped onto a patio that led to a plush lawn.
I could hear and see the ocean immediately. There were benches and chairs available to sit on.
The steps lead to a rocky beach area and the ocean. It was breathtaking.
If you are looking for paradise. This home is exactly that.
You will not be sorry if you choose this location. We really felt like part of their family while we stayed there. We are planning on a trip back next year for 2 weeks this time!
Mahalo to Richard and Gerry for having such a wonderful vacation rental. It was the perfect place for a relaxing, quiet, waterfront/beach destination. Richard and Gerry have equiped the rental with all the necessities and it is very comfortable and homey. My time there was completely enjoyable and thoroughly relaxing. The area was beautiful. I would go back again, and again, and again.
I was here for 4 nights as part of my son's Senior Class Trip from San Diego. I was their Activity Coordinator and needed to stay close to them since they ware at the Waianae Camp 10 minutes away. What a beautiful studio and so spacious! It had everything I could possibly need and I could see how a small family could fit there comfortably with the King Side Bed and 2 futons. The kitchen was large and had all the pots and pans you would need. The best part was sleeping to the sound of the waves and then waking up to the view of the ocean and the rocks. It is literally just a few feet away. The owners were very nice and they reside on another part of the house, but this studio is private and I liked how it was gated and I felt very safe. It was just a couple of doors down from Makaha Beach, which has a wide expanse of sand and beautiful water. Yes, it is about 40 minutes from Waikiki but it is a good change of pace here on this side of the island. Just be respectful of the local culture and the local residents:)
We are home and getting used to the cold Canadian winter again. We like to thank you for the great time we had in your beautiful home, watching from the patio, only about 20 m away from the ocean the awesome surf, young surfers and whales, listening to the unforgetable sound of the powerful ocean and watching the stars at night. We will never forget that. Some day we certainly will be back.
You and your wife are very lucky people to live your life in such a great spot.
Makaha is located at the end of the Leeward Coast of Oahu. Mostly parks and recreation are located on the ocean side of our coast with very little residential housing to block the beautiful view of the blue ocean and sand beaches. Waianae Boat Harbor is just three miles from our place. You can do whale , dolphin and fishing excursions. We have Makaha Golf Resort for fine dining and Army Beach Club the way it was 40 years ago at Pokai Bay. If you want a local experience back when, then come out to Makaha, and meet real gracious Hawaiian people.
