Makaha Beach-Front Paradise with Central A/C, Private Pool & Jet Tub

Bedrooms 5
Half Baths1
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

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.

this was the vacation of a life time!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 11 included ages 10 to 68. The property provided everything we could need, plus lots of space to enjoy. We saw whales and turtles right from the Lanai every day. The pool was a huge hit. A pristine white sand beach was a few minutes walk. Best of all, we were away from all the noise and traffic. We highly recommend this to families who want an exceptional family experience. This would truly be the dream house liday for ant family. Thank you more than I can say!

My family and I have been renting vacation houses since 1983. This was one of the top 2 or 3 if not the best for many reasons. The photos do not do justice to the views which along the coast on Oahu are fabulous. Mari has provided the basis for a pleasant Hawaiian experience including beach supplies as well as many kitchen basics so travelers don't have to bring things from home. The ocean front has a sandy area between the wall and rocky beach, which has one or two interesting blow holes. We were able to see dolphins in front. and sea turtles just down the street in Turtle Cove. Makaha Beach is nearby (3 minutes by car), and there are nice, usually uncrowded beaches towards the north. The location is perfect if you do not want the crowded areas of Honolulu or Waikiki. We toured all over the island, never more than 1 1/4 hours away from various activities. The older grandkids took surf lessons from a local shop.

The house itself when we checked in was immaculate. Everything was up to our high standards. The grandkids lived in the pool when not at the beach. The only issue was with the power gate, and Mari had someone there almost at once. My experience with Mari is that she is very concerned with our comfort and pleasure not only at the house, but also with our entire Hawaiian stay. She provided many links to activities, plus a myriad of books and pamphlets at the house.

I would and have recommended the beach house at Makaha to some friends. My family would return there if we are so fortunate to spend another vacation in Hawaii.

Mahalo, Mari.

We had a glorious family vacation in this wonderful house! The Makana Beach house was immaculate, and Mari and her amazing team made sure that every detail was seen to and perfect. When we had a question, we got an immediate answer and when there were a very minor issue with the grill, Jenny was there immediately to help! Mari shared great local information well before our visit, so we could plan and be prepared for any attractions we wanted to see. The house also had several guide books, which we used daily! The views were unbelievable with the exciting Pacific front and center from the deck and lanai, , and the mountains from the other. We enjoyed the pool daily, and the swimming beach was a short walk or drive away. We would gladly return will recommend this fantastic home to friends and family. Thank you for making sure our first visit to Hawaii was so wonderful!!!

A lovely place!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 11 - from baby to great grandmother spent 11 days enjoying this wonderful home. Each family had its own space, while enjoying the large living room, dining room and kitchen. Our daily activities included a walk to the nearby cove to see the turtles, and the family gathering on the rock wall above the beach to watch the sun go down. We spent many hours in the pool. The home is very elder friendly and very child safe. We appreciated the prompt responses from Mari and her staff. We enjoyed being away from the tourists and enjoyed the local community. It was a fun place to spend Christmas and New Year!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

14 friends and family gathered to celebrate our 50th anniversary. Plenty of room for everyone, never felt crowded and it was nice to have so many bathrooms. The views from the deck were fabulous. The pool and jet tub were enjoyed by many. We had 3 vans so we all just went wherever and when ever we wanted, but always gathered back at "our house" in the evenings to enjoy it all. The house was immaculate, Mari was a joy to work with.. We would come back anytime!

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!!
