    The perfect Dupe. Less crowded, a little unexpected, and truly delightful. The vibe here is RETO and CHILL, so let the good times roll. Message us for details as we do not use the VRBO calendar.

    Perfect for 2, 3, or 4 guests. Walk out the gate directly onto Makaha Surfing Beach. Our Oceanside Bungalow is 700 square feet with 2 air-conditioned bedrooms, 1 bathroom, a living room, and a fully equipped kitchen. Boogie boards, snorkel gear, beach chairs, and umbrellas, are all available in the cabana next to the bungalow. Go snorkeling with the sea turtles right off the beach. Do a little Whale Watching from the front yard….migrating season is late December through March, or just enjoy a good book while swinging in the hammock. Sunsets you ask.....absolutely!

    Makaha Beach is truly the hidden jewel of Oahu. You are only 35 miles northwest of Honolulu airport away from all of the crowds. Makaha Beach is famous for surfing dating back to the '50s but there is also great snorkeling and just plain lying on the beach in the sun.

    If you are looking for a great location with a beautiful secluded beach this place is for you. Our Oceanside Bungalow shares the front yard, (which overlooks the ocean) along with the beach equipment found in the cabana with our Mountainside Bungalow. If you like to play golf, Makaha Valley Resort has 1 golf course with spectacular views. The South Course is scheduled to be redesigned by PGA legend Tiger Woods. Rumored to become a distinct and memorial golf course. We are very excited.

    Barbecue on the front lawn and eat under the 100+-year-old Hau tree, the perfect place to enjoy those beautiful Hawaiian sunsets. There is a grill outside your bungalow and you will find charcoal and lighter fluid in the cabana.

    This is really "local" Hawaii. The Makaha Country Club for golf and they now have the restaurant open. Great deep-sea fishing out of the Waianae Harbor and the freshest Ahi Tuna on the island can be found at our local grocery store. Lots of farming nearby which means lots of fresh vegetables and fruits. The farmers market is open on Saturday mornings. There are no bars or restaurants in our immediate neighborhood which makes this the perfect spot for a zero-proof vacation. There are restaurants within 3 miles, Coquitos Latin Cuisine and Kahumana Organic Farm and Cafe. The Beach House by 406 is a nice restaurant and has a nice bar. In Ko'Olina, (20 minutes) Roys, Monkey Pod, Island Vintage ...

    I want to tell you not to stay here, because I have a feeling this spot will soon blow up and getting access to it in the future may be difficult. The photos on VRBO do not do the property justice. The mountain rolls right down behind the house into the beach. The beach in back of the house is nearly deserted and there are all the amenities you need for a fun beach day in the shed. While swimming you’ll bump into several sea turtles and see whales from the back yard. It’s magical. Pro-tip: if you stay here check out Aloha Poke down the road. Best Poke we had on island!

    There are 4 adults in this house, with plenty of room and privacy. The property is so clean, and functional with everything needed to prepare meals if desired. The private beach is amazing! We would definitely rent this property again. Donna, Adrian, Scott and Julia.

    I would like to rate my stay while at your property in Makaha Hawaii. Pros; Nice location Beds are comfortable AC is cold I Cons; 1 The property is old and needs updating. The windows don’t close properly and so the air condition unit is constantly running trying to catch up. 2. The furniture provided for the living room can accommodate three people in the old futon and one in an upright uncomfortable chair. That’s it. 3. The living room sits facing the west side so when the sun goes down it is extremely hot in the living room making hard to sit and enjoy. The curtains are very light and don’t keep the heavy sun out of the living room so for a few hours is hard to watch television. 4. The house was supplied with minimal toiletries, 2 rolls of toilet paper and two small soap samples for bathing, all of this for three adults staying one week. Obviously not enough so we had to buy more during the stay. 5. A remote is not available for the outside gate, meaning you have to get out of the car to get in and out of the house. Providing a remote control for your guest would make it more pleasant. 6. Too many rules for this house upon check in and check out. The owner expects you to sort your trash and keep your shoes off while in the house. I’m on vacation and don’t need the extra stress. 7. Although a cleaning fee is charged up front( first time I have to pay this in advance), the owner expects you to basically clean the house before you leave. If I am imposed a cleaning fee, then the owner should take care of the cleaning without bothering the guest. 8. There is only one ceiling fan in the living room/kitchen area which is not enough to keep the area cool when the sun is hitting the area directly in the late afternoon. There is a floor fan that barely helps. 9. There is only one TV provided and has free Samsung TV programming. If you don’t log in to your streaming device you are out of luck. 10. There is a second tv in one of the bedrooms but is not hooked up to anything and is useless unless you plug in a VCR or something external to view movies. 11. The worst off all is the fact that every morning around 4;00 am in the morning, a ton of roosters start loudly calling out their mates and then the dogs start barking. This continues until well past 7;30 am. There is no resting in the mornings as you get woken up every early morning by the roosters and dogs while you stay at this house. Not only should this be told to any prospective guest

    Property was beyond our expectations. Home was clean and hosts were responsive. I plan to stay again the next time I’m back on island.

    We were swept away by the views and amenities offered at the bungalow. It was just as advertised!!!

    We loved the beach and the house had everything you think you need and then some. I thought of giving only four stars for location because on the way to the house you do travel through some unpleasant areas. But having the beach almost to ourselves more then made up for it.

    Property right on the beach. House was made you feel like a real local. Outdoor space was great. Would recommend to anyone to stay here.

    If I say to many good things everybody will book it and it won’t be available when I come back….. Let’s just say, I’ll be back.

    Lisa and Ken were awesome hosts. Very responsive. The bungalow was great. Well furnished and the beach toys - chairs, etc were a nice addition. Only recommendation would be shades in the living room area to keep the hot sun out in late afternoon. Very relaxing trip.

    The bungalow had everything we needed. Thank you Lisa and Ken for sharing your place with us. The view of the beach is amazing. We loved the privacy and our boys had an amazing time.
