Overview

About the property

Enjoy this private fully furnished oceanfront house located on Oahu's West (Waianae) Coast near the world famous Makaha Surfing Beach, which is about a mile away from the home. There are also two smaller beaches a couple of houses down the street, where you will see some turtles laying around.

The home is close to the new Disney resort, Ko'Olina Resort, the water park, world class golf courses, Costco, Target, lots of dining and shopping options, and a perfect setting for a multitude of outdoor sports (surfing, paddle boarding, canoe, kayaking, snorkeling, boating, swimming with dolphins, hiking)

Makaha has everything you could want in a vacation get-away - the comfort of a private home, an abundance of activities, and the serenity of a private ocean, all conveniently located within 45 minutes from the nightlife, sightseeing, and dining of Honolulu and Waikiki. Enter, exhale, and then experience the pure magic that is Hawaii.

The property fronts coral reefs. There are also many turtles swimming in the water right in front of the home.

During whale season November-April, watch the whales jumping in the ocean from the back yard while having dinner on the patio or swimming in the nice water pool.

You will be amazed when you enter the Serenity home. You are able to see through to the backyard pool and ocean as the whole 30-foot back wall slides open to the backyard where the pool, barbecue grill and ocean are. You can enter the back yard from the dining room/kitchen, living room and TV-room. This home is very beautiful and has a unique architecture.

Enjoy the deep-blue ocean and the great sunsets from the covered patio and backyard. Nap to the soothing sound of the ocean.

Relax in the spacious living room with big flat screen TV. Use the bbq grill and enjoy dining on the patio. Watch the amazing and beautiful sunsets. Have a swim in the big pool or just sit and relax by the gazebo.

The Serenity home has four bedrooms and four baths. The home is fully furnished. The beautiful gourmet kitchen is fully equipped with stainless steel appliances, black granite counter tops: microwave, stove, oven, sink disposal, dishwasher, wine cooler, nice big refrigerator and freezer. The kitchen and dining room has gorgeous Italian marble floors.

The master suite upstairs will have a king-size bed. There is a big lanai with a table and chairs where you can enjoy your morning coffee and the amazing ocean view. The master suite bathroom has double sinks and a big shower with beautiful glass doors.

The second bedroom/office upstairs with a king size bed is a beautiful writers or executive retreat. Stay in touch with your office while looking over the ocean and listening to the sound of the ocean.

The third bedroom upstairs will have a full and regular size bunk bed, sleeps 4 children. There are two lanais in the room; one is located with a view of the mountains and the other with a nice view of the back yard.

The second bathroom with shower and bathtub is located in the hallway upstairs between the two bedrooms.

The fourth bedroom is located downstairs and has it’s own private bath/shower connected to it. There will be two full size beds in there. Open up the big screen doors and walk out to the beautiful private front yard.

The fourth bathroom with double sinks and shower is located downstairs next to the TV-room.

The family room will have a big screen TV, a large sectional couch and a fold out queen bed.

Since the home is on the water the cool breeze come down from Makaha Valley, although AC is available in all the bedrooms it's nice to keep the windows and doors open to enjoy the delicious tropical Hawaii air. You will not need the AC during the winter months.

The Serenity house has a secured garage, security alarm, video cameras, Wifi Internet, hairdryers, nice big bath towels, linens and beach towels. Just bring your clothes and toothbrush and enjoy your time in Paradise.

Terrific Location Right On The Water!

  • 4 of 5

For those of us craving a more realistic trip to sample Hawaii, this house is perfectly located because it is in Makaha where the Hawaiian people actually live, not just serve drinks and make Meds!

The house is VERY open and airy and it required no AC. It HAS AC in the bedrooms, but none was necessary, despite a record-breaking heat streak of 90°!

The house is more gorgeous than the pictures imply. The waterfront cannot be described by pictures nor words! Falling asleep every night to the sound of waves is SO peaceful!

We saw the sea turtles right off the sea wall! We even saw some spinner dolphins from our backyard!

But we saw humpback whales breaching from our living room that opens via a giant 4-panel sliding glass door! In early November!

The kitchen is awesome and well-stocked! No need to buy spices and an opportunity to try new ones!

On to the things that need attention: the pool was heated...by the sun, not the broken pool-heater. I got locked in the downstairs bathroom with the spa because the door was off it's track. The main ceiling fan was inoperable (there ARE 10 more in the house, so not really a biggie) and the aforementioned spa tub had a crack and simply had a sign saying not to use it.

Our party was mostly impacted by the defunct pool heater as my mother is disabled and couldn't go swimming as soon as tghe heat wave dissipated. Toward the end of the trip I found myself taking hot showers after every swim.

Overall, very great and would return if the pool heater was repaired.

Nice and spacious house perfect for families with kids

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful house at a beautiful location. We had three families with kids staying there and loved it! Each bedroom had its own AC, which was convenient. Plenty of beach towels, kitchenware, pantry full of oils, spices, sugars etc. Swimming pool was our kids favorite! There were a couple of picturesque beaches within a walking distance where we saw turtles swimming.

Lagunas with calm waters were 20 minutes away by Aulani Disney resort. Good place for snorkeling too!

The reason for 4 stars is the neighborhood where nice rental properties are contrasted with homes of locals.. A tent village of homeless people was a mile and a half south. But we were not disturbed of assaulted by anyone.

Overall very positive experience. Would recommend!

Beautiful Home

We had a great stay at the house, perfect size for a family vacation.

It was a little far from downtown, but close to Disney.

AWESOME PEACEFUL HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5

Our family vacation was everything that we wanted. If you want an awesome beautiful home to stay in on your vacation...this is it! If you surf, get your boards at West Oahu SUP. My granddaughter went swimming every day and my daughter did her yoga in the beautiful backyard. We would rent again....thank you Scott and Robin

Feels just like home, if you live in a fabulous house on the ocean, that is...

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect. The owner was extremely helpful and responsive with our questions ahead of our trip. The local contact, Joe, was awesome and very friendly, checking in with us to see if we need anything. The cleaning ladies, Cruz and Dee, arrived shortly before we checked out and treated us like friends, were accommodating and not at all rushing us to get out. As far as the house itself, the pictures don't lie. No attention to detail has been spared, right down to providing a wireless printer so you can print your boarding pass from your phone. Not gonna lie: Traffic is challenging. There's even a section for traffic in the "house" book. The island is in serious need of some traffic engineering. Don't let that small detail keep you from this house. It delivers!
