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.

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(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)).

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.

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.

It's a quiet out of the way place. We rented a car & toured many places on the island. It was nice to come back to a quiet place to rest & relax. The pets are friendly, Sam a lab & Rainbow the cat. I'd stay there again. The host is there for you if needed & goes the extra mile or miles in our case.

Hope's place was beautiful. It was exactly what we were looking for our honeymoon. She is a wonderful host.

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!

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.
