Description

The "Treehouse", is a studio unit above our garage. We are only 2 houses (about 800 ft) from a cool little hidden beach. In a rural suburban neighborhood, close to hiking and surfing, located 1 hour west of Waikiki, Honolulu, and/or North Shore.

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).

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).

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.

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.

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.

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.

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)

I stayed at H's place this past week and I couldn't have asked for a better host or place to stay. It was so cute and exactly as described! I will definitely stay there again next time I'm going to Waianae.

We only stayed here the last couple of days of our vacation, but wished we could have stayed longer. The place is very well equiped, and the location is very convenient. The small private beach was very nice, and is perfectly situated to take in an amazing senset to end our trip. Thanks Hope!

We loved pretty much everything about our stay. Being up 'in the trees' made for wonderful views from the windows. We loved hearing the dawn chorus and being away from the tourist areas. The little beach just behind the house was a great spot to see the turtles and our favourite beaches on the island were just a few minutes drive. We made good use of the bodyboards and snorkelling gear. The apartment is very attractive, clean and well equipped. We had a 9 day stay, so appreciated the accessibility of the washer and dryer and the basics in the cupboards. It also wasn't as far from shops and restaurants as we had expected. We really couldn't have asked for more. We had a wonderful stay and would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to really get away from it all. If you are looking for commercial tourism you won't find it in this part of the island, although if you are prepared to drive an hour or so you can visit pretty much anywhere on the island. The one thing that surprised us was the volume of traffic, but it didn't stop us exploring most areas of the island.
