Description

The space

We call it the Treehouse, but its actually a second floor studio apt over our carport, with views of the surrounding yards filled with bougainvilla, palm trees, bamboo and fruit trees, and the mountains in the distance. You can walk to a hidden local beach only 2 houses away, where Hawaiian green sea turtles rest on the sand. Save money by cooking your own meals instead of going out every night!

This "Ohana" apt (a unit attached to someone's private home, and does not contain a full kitchen, meant for temporary family guests) is located in West Oahu, in Makaha, close to Makaha surfing beach, Makaha Golf Resort, and 15 minutes away from the Disney and KoOlina Resorts. It is one hour away from Honolulu and Waikiki and the hustle and bustle of the city, whle still only 20 minutes drive to shopping in Kapolei. There is a quaint oceanfront restaurant with entertainment on the weekends just 5 minutes down the road, and our side of the island is known for less crowded beaches, teeming with ocean life, and some cool rural hiking trails.

Our Treehouse is a large studio room (over 400 square ft ) with an outdoor lanai, romantic pillowtop Cal King bed, kitchenette with all amenities except oven (there is a convection microwave and a double burner hotplate). WI-FI, off street parking, separate entrance, full tile bath, basic cable, DVD/VCR (some DVDs/ VCR tapes are provided, as well as some novels to read on the beach), A/C, coin op laundry on premises, close to larger surfing beaches. Bus stop close by but a car is recommended.

We provide beach towels, snorkel equipment, boogieboards, coolers, beach umbrella, use of our BBQ, single and double person kayaks w/ temporary foam roof rack to put on your rental car, 2 bicycles, tour books and maps ... what more can you ask for at this price?

Explore Oahu the more affordable way, or just hide out here for a romantic retreat!

NOTE: We also cater to long term and month-to-month business travelers, with a 30 day minimum and long term rates. We are 10 minutes away from the Waianae Comp Health Center, 15-20 from the KoOlina/Disney/ Marriott complex, 30 minutes from Kapolei / Campbell Industrial Park (TAT #W).

Guest access

Guests have access to all the beach items including kayak, bikes, snorkel equipment, coolers, beach chairs, umbrellas, etc. Also access to coin -op washer and dryer, charcoal grill, and 1 covered parking space. Extra storage room is available if they need to store something large or have excessive baggage. They also have their own private access door to their unit, but it does share an outdoor back stairway with my door ( I try not to use the back stairway when guests are present so they feel more private).

Interaction with guests

I try to give the guests complete privacy and only come up to visit their space if they text or call me with a problem. I will be there to greet the guests and show them around, and if I cannot be there on arrival I will come up and greet them later. If it rains, guests have to take the chair cushions in off the lanai and sweep water off after the rain. I don't want them to feel uncomfortable thinking I might come up there and peek in their windows! If there is a special event going on in the area, I will stop up and invite them or at least make them aware of it.

The neighborhood

I like that you can walk to the beach, that my street is a circle so its pleasant to ride bikes on, and there are many colorful characters in my neighborhood and many pets. I also like that it is far from commercial activity.

Getting around

There is a bus stop just a few hundreds yards away, but the bus does take a long time to get places. It is not too far for grocery shopping, but it takes about 1 1/2 hours to get to the main city , and if you want to take the bus to and from the airport, it requires an exchange to get onto another bus, and they only allow one small bag per person.

Other things to note

Oahu ordinances do not allow meals to be served to guests, and do not allow a full kitchen for ohana units. There is a full kitchenette for you to cook your own meals but not a full stove/oven (double burner hot plate instead of a stove top). Long term tenants (over 1 month) are expected to purchase their own toilet paper and incidentals beyond the arrival courtesy stocking. Coin-Op laundry in carport, requires 1.00 in quarters to wash or dry( the laundry detergent items are free for use) . No daily maid service.

The Treehouse is a perfect hideaway in a residential area with a great turtle beach close by. If you are after a cosy quiet fully equipped large room near to beaches with more locals than tourists then this is for you!

Outstanding rental, very clean, well-stocked bathroom and fully functioning kitchen. The excellent bed made me melt the first time I laid down. Plus, H. was honestly the most generous host I've EVER had. Thanks!

Great place to stay a few days in Oahu, the room is romantic and quiet and it was really nice to wake up with the sound of the birds all around us. Sam the dog was super cute and Hope was very nice and flexible as we checked in late at night. Waianae is a bit far from most activities so make sure you have a car to get around, but there are also some beautiful beaches close to the house. Thanks Hope!

Our experience reflected the experience both H. and other guests described! Very happy we ventured out of Honolulu and Waikiki and found this Tree House. Will definitely recommend to anyone looking for suggestions.

I loved staying at this place. The host is so friendly and helpful and her cat and dog are friendly and well behaved. The apartment is pretty, spacious, and very clean. The host has provided so many thoughtful items: sunscreen, Antiseptic, shampoo etc, coffee, first aid stuff, beach towels, snorkels. The area is in a state of construction- many people are renovating, so there is building mess about. The townand shops nearby are quite rundown and a lot of them are shut. You can still find plenty of food options and affordable supermarkets. The knockout thing about this place is the beaches and Mountains. The beach behind the house is small and stunning. There is a rock platform and a lovely small sandy area. Everyday I went there I saw turtles- in the water and on the beach. The most turtles I had seen in all of Oahu. As I stood in the water the turtles came up to me. I would highly recommend this place to stay if you want a clean spacious apartment close to beautiful beaches and mountains

great place. hope had everything you could possibly need while away. the area is a bit "eclectic" but beautiful with lots to do. hope gave us a lot of day trips ideas which we did most of them. local beach 2 doors down was an amazing spot to see sea turtles. would definitely recommend. the neighborhood may not be for everyone but... we found it charming. loved coming home to happy "Sam and rainbow" (the dog and cat)

Born in the New York, USA area, I have lived on Oahu almost 20 years, 7 of them in the Makaha area. I love the water and hiking and will be able to help you find secret beaches, hiking trails, and the coolest snorkeling spots.
