Home was well equipped and right on the beach. Herman and Julie were Fabulous and shared the best fruit pie we have ever eaten. Then Herman BBQ’ed the best ever ribs and shaded their dinner with us. The only drawback was the home does not have air conditioning and it was extremely hot. Even the trade winds didn’t cool off at night. We still truly enjoyed our stay and meeting both Julie and Herman.
Thank you for coming to visit us. We loved having you. Please come back anytime and consider this your home away from home. The trade winds are usually sufficient to keep cool but this year has been exceptionally warm. This is not the norm. Thankfully, most of the time the trade winds and fans do the trick. Aloha and Mahalo until we meet again.
Access to the beach was amazing. The caretakers are very sweet and helpful. They even made us desserts! Very pleasant experience.
Thank you soooooo much. We loved having you come and visit us. Please come back to visit us again soon. We are blessed to have wonderful visitors like you.
Nice place right on the beach
We stayed for 2 weeks in the middle of July 2019. 5 adults + a 3 year old child. This place was the perfect size for our group. One of the adults had to sleep on the pull-out sofa, but it was comfortable. The beach is your backyard, and it is very private. No other tourists around at all. An occasional local person would wander by, but very infrequent. The view from the back is spectacular. Nothing but beach and ocean. It would be hard to find anywhere else on the island with direct beach access and as much privacy for anywhere close to the low price that we paid for the number of people we had with us.
The on-site property managers, Herman and Julie, were very friendly and helpful. There is grocery store 2 blocks away (Longs Drug) and 2 larger ones within 2 miles. We had no problems finding groceries. Also several fast food places and mom & pop restaurants in the same area.
No air conditioning. We kept the windows open all day. It was fine at night with the cool breeze, but would get relatively warm inside during the day. 85 - 90 degrees. But we were usually out and about anyway during those hours.
Access to the property. For security reasons, they keep the gate from the street locked at night. If we were out after dark it was a chore to have to unlock the gate, pull into the driveway, and then relock the gate.
Homelessness and poverty. You'll see a lot of that on the west side of the island. Not a pretty sight. It was not visible from the house, but very visible along Farrington HWY / H-93 that runs between Makaha and Kapolei. However, no one ever bothered us. The homeless keep to themselves and don't cause trouble.
Lastly, distance. Kapolei is the closest place with upscale shopping and restaurants. The drive from Makaha to Kapolei takes 30 minutes. Getting to North Shore or anywhere east of Honolulu takes an hour minimum. We planned ahead for all of our daily excursions.
Thank you Elliott family. We are so honored that you chose to stay at our beach house. Sorry that you had to see the homelessness but because Hawaii has such good weather all year round it is a problem all over the island. The City has been trying to work on it and I think they have made some progress. We are also fortunate enough to be situated in cove like area right up to the beach so it makes it even more private and people tend not to wander there.
Unfortunately, this year it has been especially hot. We are lucky to have trade winds to help with that especially at night. Hope the ceiling and floor fans were helpful when you did stay in. During the day time it is also nice to just sit in the patio area with a cool drink and admire the beautiful beach and ocean view. Sometimes the turtles and seals even come to visit. So glad that you had the opportunity to visit other places on the island. You sound like seasoned travelers. Please come back to visit us anytime. We are so blessed to have visitors like you. Aloha and mahalo!
Relaxing home base on the beach.
We loved our stay here! The house was neat and tidy and falling asleep to the sound of crashing waves was fantastic. Herman and Julie made us feel right at home and were fabulous hosts. From showing us where to spot sea turtles, sharing mangoes, lupitas, and Herman's famous fruit pie, they went above and beyond to make our stay memorable.
We are a family on the go, go, go and drove all over the island to see the sights and enjoy all Oahu has to offer, however, we loved having the beach house as a relaxing home base to begin and end our busy days. This side of the island is relaxing and nice to decompress after traveling through Honolulu traffic and competing with other tourist at attractions.
Our daughters (ages 7 and 9) loved the instant beach access to play in the sand and I already miss having my morning coffee in the swing on the quiet beach. The view of the stars from the beach and the bedrooms were breathtaking as were the sunsets.
If you are looking for a relaxing oasis in Oahu, I highly recommend staying here! You will leave refreshed, renewed, and with new friends!
Aloha and Mahalo!
Awwww we are absolutely THRILLED that you enjoyed your stay! Please come back soon. We love having wonderful visitors like you come and share this paradise with us. We are blessed to have visitors like you. Hope to see you again soon.
Island stay May 13-18 2019
What a great place to stay in Hawaii. The house was in a great location right on the beach, such a beautiful walk anytime of the day. Great reef to snorkel on or a short walk for fishing or a hike. When relaxing outside the breeze is amazing and the chickens are entertaining. The caretakers were great and very helpful when we had questions or if we needed anything. Lynette, the homeowner, personally called us to finalize arrangements and answered any questions that we had in regards to the property. The location of the house is great, within minutes to grocery store (Tamura's or Waianae grocery store) close to gas, fast food, pharmacy, anything you may need if you forget anything from home. Overall our stay was amazing and would recommend this home if you are looking to have a relaxing beach vacation on Oahu without all the hustle and bustle of Waikiki!
Patrick, Thank you soooooo very much for choosing to stay with us. We loved having you come visit with us. We are truly blessed to have AMAZING visitors like you. Mahalo and Aloha
This is the second time we have stayed in this house and would stay every time we come to the island. It’s a home away from home. Julie and Herman treat you like there own family!
We are absolutely THRILLED that you chose to stay with us again. This is really your home away from home. We are so blessed to have wonderful visitors like you and your family. Aloha and Mahalo Chelsea. Can't wait for you to come again.......
Wij zijn een strandboulevard met eigendom van de oceaan, dus u zult veel zand hebben om op te liggen om uw prachtige kleur te krijgen, het hele jaar door 24/7. Het witte zandstrand ligt op slechts 10 stappen van uw deur.
Golf: Er zijn drie golfbanen van wereldklasse vlakbij ons strandhuis. De Ko Olina-golfbaan is de belangrijkste Ocean View Championship-golfbaan van Oahu, ontworpen door Ted Robinson. Het is een 18 holes kampioenschapsgolfbaan die uitzonderlijke waterpartijen, meerlaagse greens, uitgestrekte landingsgebieden, geen parallelle fairways en maatregelen tot 6.867 yards van de back-T-stukken biedt. Het is een 10 minuten rijden van ons huis. De golfbaan Makaha Resort ligt op ongeveer 2 minuten rijden met de auto. Deze golfbaan is ontworpen door William F. Bel om het adembenemende natuurlijke landschap van Makaha Valley te accentueren. Deze championship course werd zowel door zijn schoonheid als door de strengheid van Golf Digest geprezen en werd door Honolulu Magazine uitgeroepen tot de beste golfbaan van het eiland. Deze klassieke 18 holes, 7.077 yard, par 72 baan vraagt om een verscheidenheid aan opnamen en zowat elke club in je tas. Met een USGA-rating van 73. 2 daagt het professionals en amateurs uit. Degenen met een gevoel voor geschiedenis zullen blij zijn wetende dat Hawaï's koningschap Makaha Valley gebruikte voor hun recreatie. De pauwen die door de vallei werden gezien en gehoord waren een geschenk van koning Kalaukaua aan de eigenaar van de historische Makaha Valley Ranch meer dan 100 jaar geleden.
