Beach Front Family Vacation on Makaha Beach. A secluded, relaxing beach in Oahu.

Bedrooms 4
Space 1,400 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 5 nights


About the property

2 Bungalows TOTALING 1400 sq ft. Each bungalow is 700 sq ft and sleeps 4

Perfect for 5 to 8 guests. Walk out the gate directly onto famous Makaha Surfing Beach. Great for friend and family vacations.We have 2 Bungalows on our property. Each bungalow is... 700 square feet with 2 air conditioned bedrooms, 1 bathroom, living room and a fully equipped kitchen. Boogie boards, snorkel gear, beach chairs and umbrellas, are all available in the cabana. Snorkel with the sea turtles right off the beach. Do a little Whale Watching from the front yard….migrating season is late December thru 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 north west of Honolulu airport away from all of the crowds. Makaha Beach is famous for surfing dating back to the 50's 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 and basic accommodations, this place is for you. Both Bungalows share the front yard, (which overlooks the ocean) along with the beach equipment found in the cabana.

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 each bungalow and you will find charcoal and lighter fluid in the cabana.

This is really "local" Hawaii. The Makaha Country Club is 1.5 miles away for golf and there is great deep sea fishing out of the Waianae Harbor 2.5 miles away. There are no bars or restaurants in our neighborhood. The closest 4 star restaurants are 3 miles down the road. Coquitos Latin Cuisine and Kahumana Organic Farm and Cafe. 30 minutes down the road you will find many more great restaurants.

You will have a relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable time here at The Bungalows. We have two bungalows on our property, we trust that you will respect your fellow guest. The entire property is for everyone to enjoy

About Lisa and Ken

Makaha is our favorite place in the whole world and we have traveled to many, many places. Until we are able to retire to our lovely beach, we hope that others can enjoy our wonderful community and lifestyle here on Westside Oahu

Lisa and Ken purchased this house in 2003

Why Lisa and Ken chose Mākaha

Beautiful trade wind breezes throughout the day. Mostly dry with occasional rain showers. The best sunsets! A quiet relaxing large beach where you will see some of the locals teaching their kids how to swim and surf.

What makes this house unique

One of the most quiet, relaxing, clean beaches in all of Oahu. Lots of ocean life to enjoy; you can swim with sea turtles and tropical fish, watch the whales as they breach the water during migrating season, and snorkel the coral reef.

Your own piece of paradise for a vacation

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Lisa and Ken's bungalow was the most relaxing vacation we have ever had! We loved listening to the waves every night, taking walks on the beach in the morning and the evening and watching those braving the beautiful waves. We BBQ'ed our dinners and ate at the fence line to enjoy the ocean. The house was the perfect size for us and our 2 adult children, never turning on the TV once! We used the AC in the evenings, once the sun went down, enjoying our company and like I said before, listening to the ocean. Be prepared with mosquito spray and be sure that you are clean with your food as the insects will let you know if you aren't. We got to see itty bitty lizards, adult lizards, a preying mantice, beautifully fragrant flowers and again...did I mention the ocean?!? Lisa and Ken have the kitchen well supplied with what you may need as well as towels, puzzles, movies, books, outdoor chairs, tables and fun toys to play in the ocean. We found a Save and Shop (Foodland) that we liked buying all of our groceries at as well as having several fast food places close by. We were really sad to say good bye to the property and will definitely stay there again when we come to the island again. All I have is praise for this location! Thank you Lisa and Ken!

Enjoyed our stay with a family of four. Easy access to beach. Had plenty of snorkel gear and boogie boards for the kids. Beach was clean and safe for swimming. Location not crowded. We slept comfortable on the beds provided. Had everything we needed for cooking in the kitchen. We would stay again.

Great property, amazing beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this Bungalow. We visited beaches all around the island, but preferred the beach in our back yard. It's a huge, clean beach with very few people and amazing views. Great for sunbathing, swimming, snorkeling, surfing, turtles, seals, whales and especially sunsets.

Owner's Response: It was great to have you. You were delightful guests. We are so happy you were able to see the whales right off our beach during their migration period. They are amazing when they breach the water. We hope you are able to visit again. Mahalo Lisa and Ken
