Mākaha House Rental Photos and Description

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.

There are brochures with information of activities and a notebook in the house with ideas of things to see and where to dine.

Check in is at 4 pm, check out is at 10 am. Our wonderful cleaning staff will be there at 10 am to check you out.

Home sweet home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I felt so comfortable here. My brother who is in a wheelchair also really enjoyed it. The complete downstairs is wheelchair accessible, the downstairs shower wasnt accessible for my brother but we did made other arrangements. There was a elevator but it was out of order unfortunately.

The house was extremely clean, and peaceful.

The location was in the rougher area of Oahu, but we did not mind because we really enjoyed staying at the house.

Would love to come back one day!

The home was paradise! We have vacationed a lot and stayed in a lot of homes. This house was absolutely beautiful! The location was a bit far away from things we ended up doing, because of traffic, but still worth it! Extremely clean and well maintained. All the appliances or kitchenware we could have needed were available. I would recommend this home to anyone.

Wonderful property - so much better than a hotel!!!!

  • 4 of 5

We rented this house based on the first class accommodations and the view of the ocean. It was everything we expected! Our family had plenty of space (3500 sq. ft.) and we had access to all of the things we needed during our stay including barbecuing at night. The location on the west side of the island was wonderful as the weather was beautiful (it was raining several times on the other side of the island during our stay). Since we spent most our days on other parts of the island, it did require a little driving to get to the activities. Most of our activities started early in the morning so the traffic to and from those locations was not bad but we had to be aware of the times for traffic if we were traveling near Honolulu. We loved the access to Turtle Beach and got to see huge sea turtles within a five minute walk from the house (go during high tide!) The sunsets were spectacular from the cabana and we loved to sit on the master patio at night to look at the stars. I would not in a minute think about staying on Waikiki instead of renting this property unless you want to spend all of your time on a crowded beach.

As we have seen in other reviews, we had no problems with the area around the house - people were quite friendly, but we would recommend some of the restaurants that were about 25 minutes away near the resorts.

We would definitely stay here again as the house was first class!

Outstanding vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

We booked this house a year in advance and it was everything we had hoped for. As reported by many, the moment you walked through the front door you were in paradise. The house is amazing. Plenty of room and beautiful bedrooms. The pool was amazing however would be nice to have an extra step for getting in and out. We loved how close the beaches were to the house. We cancelled our boat trip for swimming with the turtles because we had that daily at the beach nearby. We drove to Makaha beach to paddle board daily (5 minutes away) and walked to the beach for swimming in the waves (3 minutes). Everything was perfect and we can't wait to return.

All seven adults fell in love with this property as soon as we saw it! We are from the Midwest and wanted to stay forever. It was a very peaceful, relaxing place. If we wanted "action", we could drive 30-60 minutes and find it. It had plenty of space. If someone wanted private time, there was space for that , too. The kitchen was stocked with things I never thought of...from a regular coffee pot to a keurig to a coffee press to an instant hot water faucet. The pool is excellent. The ocean is breathtaking. There are two beaches readily available. One a five minute walk and the other a three minute walk. There was never many people on the beach. We do hope you enjoy your stay here as much as we did! We hope to return.

Outstanding and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

Hated to leave this awesome place!

The view is beautiful and just as advertised.

The home was well equipped and had everything we needed. Do yourself a favor and go to the house first before stocking up on things. There were many things already in the fridge and cubbard that we bought but didn't need to. Joe the maintenance guy was very friendly and helpful.

Would definitely stay here again!
