Mākaha House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Den, 4.5 Baths, Central A/C (Sleep from 2-16)

Newer 5 bdrm 4.5 bath home with Central AC, waterfall, private solar heated lagoon pool & jet tub, and private gated entrance, private enclosed parking for 2 cars with further private parking for up to 6 cars. The house is over 5,000 sq ft and sleeps up to 16.

This beautiful home is located with a view of the world famous Makaha Surf Beach, which is where surf and canoe contests are held throughout the year. In the 1960s Makaha was the epicenter for big-wave surfing. It was where the groundwork was laid for surfing contests in Hawaii and all over the world. As opposed to the North Shore of Oahu where the surf is also renowned, one does not have to contend with traffic in Makaha from tourist buses and crowds. Makaha is still untouched and the perfect destination for visitors who want to experience the Hawaii of long ago, while still being on the same island where all of the top restaurants and shops are.

Immediately in front of the property is a small white sand beach, interesting reef and tidal pools and two spectacular blow holes.

Since this home is on the water and in line with the cool breezes that come down from Makaha Valley, and since this is a newer home achitecturally designed to ensure cool comfortable living, although AC is available, it's best to keep the windows and doors open to enjoy the delicious tropical air Hawaii is known for.

The property is near the new Aulani Disney resort, Ko'Olina Four Seasons Hotel & Resort, world class golf courses, lots of dining and shopping options, and the perfect setting for a multitude of outdoor sports (surfing, paddle boarding, canoe, kayaking, snorkeling, boating, swimming with dolphins, hiking) There are daily sightings of turtles and dolphins just feet away from the shoreline, along with the seasonal sight of whales directly in front of the house.

The 360 degree view of both the mountains and ocean are breathtaking. At night visitors will enjoy a rare sight of a multitude of stars from the upper deck. This custom designed home and professionally landscaped property is very private, pristine and comfortable.

Rates will vary depending upon the number in your party, the length of your stay, and the season.

A promise finally fulfilled - but better than we ever imagined!!

  • 5 of 5

32 years ago, My husband and I promised to take our family to Hawaii when our oldest graduated from high school. It was a promise I hadn't fulfilled, but at age 72, I knew it was time. There were 9 of us, including 2 eleven year olds. We couldn't have picked a better spot - away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki; a great surf/snorkel/swim beach 1/2 a block away; close to a grocery store and other amenities; super house, although we spent most of our time on the decks or in the pool. We delighted in watching turtles and porpoise from the yard. We hiked the local trails; toured the Dole Plantation; attended the fabulous Paradise Valley Luau; zip-lined, swam, and shopped at the North Shore; shopped in Waikiki, and spent several hours touring Pearl Harbor and the Arizona Monument A MUST SEE. After a busy day of people and traffic, it was a real delight to return to our Makaha Beach House - to the solitude and privacy that we all so enjoyed! The pool and hot tub were clean, the house was immaculate, and the grounds were lovely. Mari was marvelous as a "landlord," and we can't thank her enough for allowing us to share her Hawaiian "treasure." If we ever get to return, we wouldn't stay anywhere else. We enjoyed the very best of Hawaiian sunsets, as we all lined up and sat atop the wall in the backyard, watching the slow demise of the day. I don't have a moment's hesitation about highly recommending this awesome "retreat." Thanks again, Mari!!

Loved the house, it was Paradise for a big family.

  • 5 of 5

We were at the house for a week, celebrating our 50th Anniversary, with our whole family. There were 12 of us ranging in age from 72 to 13. This house was a great fit, with plenty of room inside and out. Having a pool was a must, and the big deck upstairs had a large table where we could play games every night. The house and yard are very clean and Mari was wonderful to do business with. We loved the area and the beaches were very close, either walkable or about a 7 minute drive. We felt like we were on private beaches, loved not having to deal with wall to wall people. We really enjoyed Waianae, for its local culture and the people we met there. Mari had recommended West Oahu SUP for surf lessons and they were terrific. If you want to stay in a great house with an owner who really cares about the clients, then this is the house for you. I can not think of one thing that was not taken care of. This house gave you plenty of room to be together or you could find a quiet place to be alone for awhile. The views from the house are breath taking and you just might see a turtle swim by. Just a note: if you want the best pancakes you have ever eaten stop by Hannara's and try the macadamia nut, coconut and banana pancakes without syrup, truly a heavenly experience.

Best beach house on the island

  • 5 of 5

We just left this morning and are so sad. This was our best vacation ever and mostly due to this house. Best views, terrific layout and very quiet, except.for the sound of the ocean. We are already.planning a trip back.

Love this house, an Island feel inside and out!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week vacation at the Makaha Beach House. We absolutely love this house! It was our second stay, having stayed a week in 2014, and I should have written a review then. It would have been repeated here. The house is so spacious, beautiful and clean. We were 9, 7 adults and 2 children (3yrs and 1 yrs), and there was ample room for all. We had previously visited Honolulu and didn't like the crowds and noise of all the visitors and the high prices due to all the tourists. So we looked very hard for something away from the crowds, more with the island feel, clean & maintained and a feeling of safety. We found it with this house. The house is well equipped for almost anything you want to do, a beautiful beach up the road, a secluded cove with sea turtles. The Pool! Love the pool, it is the right temperature and after running around or just wanting to swim it is the best. We cooked and grilled most nights. We especially loved having breakfast on the lanai. The waves were spectacular the week we were there. We have visited before and don't do tours anymore so hanging at the house is perfect for us. Although the younger adults liked taking a ride to Haleiwa and also took the little ones to the Dole Plantation to ride the train it was an hour or so trip. Go early and the crowds aren't so bad. Leave about 8:00 in the morning and the traffic isn't bad, be back before 5 and you won't get caught in the go home traffic. Mari, the owner, is so gracious and responsive. We had a problem with one of the blinds and she was there the next day to measure and have it replaced. She takes very good care of the house and it is has just about anything you would need for your visit. Mari is the best! We highly recommend this house for those wanting a place away from the crowds, a place to relax and enjoy a home away from away. Our 3-year old grandson called it our Hawaii home! Loved it and we will be back.

Perfect house, pool and rooftop deck!

  • 5 of 5

The house and our experience could not have been better. We definitely had a "wow" moment when we first walked in. Mari, the owner, goes above and beyond to make sure the property is well cared for and it shows. It was spotless, beautiful and well equipped. She greeted us on our arrival to make sure we knew where everything was and how things worked. The house is lovely and the view and location is spectacular. We were a group of 9 adults and had plenty of room to spread out. We cooked and bbq'd almost every night and found the kitchen spacious enough for a group to work in and was very well stocked. There are 3 bedrooms upstairs each with a deck and 2 bedrooms downstairs with an additional living area. The pool and yard were great and well maintained. Pool looks small in pictures but was plenty big for whoever wanted to swim or float around. The house is equipped with all the swim and beach gear you could want. We were able to walk to 2 beaches in 10 minutes or drive to many more within 20 minutes. I would highly recommend this property. We will definitely be back!

A bit of paradise in paradise!!

  • 5 of 5

This house really is a piece of paradise! We spent many hours on the deck enjoying the view of the ocean while watching the passing whales and dolphins right from the deck. The large kitchen table made it easy for the 10 of us to sit around to eat and visit. There are all kinds of activities to choose from that are within walking distance from the house. Turtles in the hidden cove just down the street and Makaha beach a short walk the other direction. Mari was exceptional to work with, we arrived late at night and she was there to greet us and show us the house! The house is equipped with just about everything you could ever need from a washer and dryer to water toys and beach towels. We found everything we needed for our vacation in the house or the toy room. If we needed help with anything Mari was super to accommodate us, from arrival to getting our deposit back she was very professional! The spectacular view & the comfort of this home made our vacation a really special time and we would highly recommend this home to our friends and family.
