Enjoy a life of oceanfront luxury on the sunny west side of Oahu in one of our Makaha resort rentals. Nestled away near Oahu’s northwestern tip, Makaha is an ideal destination for travelers looking to escape the busyness of the city. This is the last of the island’s leeward towns before Farrington Highway ends at Ka’ena Point State Park, where the mountains and seaside cliffs become too rugged to be crossed by vehicle. Situated at the base of Mount Ka’ala, part of the Wai’anae Mountain Range, this area is home to beautiful beaches that have been frequented by Native Hawaiians for hundreds of years. Get away from the urban areas of Honolulu and Waikiki for a restful retreat at one of our Makaha condo rentals!

Features of Our Makaha Hawaii Vacation Rentals
Many of our Makaha Hawaii vacation rentals are located right along the shoreline, putting the beautiful Pacific right at your doorstep. Makaha is known for its stretches of white sandy beaches, which you will be able to take full advantage of with a stay in one of our Makaha resort rentals where the beach can be just steps from your door. Wake and sleep to the soothing sounds of the ocean and catch an amazing west side sunset with its vibrant display of colors right from the resort grounds. Enjoy a more laid back lifestyle in Makaha, which has its own unique vibe!
While each of our Makaha Hawaii vacation rentals has its own personality and character, they all share some common characteristics that will make your stay comfortable. In each rental, we strive to take advantage of Hawaii’s natural beauty by offering accommodations with oversized windows and glass doors that bring the tropical foliage, sunshine, and ocean indoors. Many of our Makaha rentals offer private lanais or balconies that extend the living space and allow for more time to be spent in the beautiful environment. Because the lanais are often covered, you can enjoy the cool shade and island breezes as you take in the surroundings. There’s nothing like waking up to the sights and sounds of the island and stepping out onto your own lanai to sip coffee and welcome the day!
Inside, light interiors keep things bright and airy in your Oahu vacation rental. Many of our Makaha beach condo rentals feature tile or wood floors that feel cool underfoot and understated beach-inspired décor, keeping the island feel throughout. It’s easy to save on the budget if desired when you book a stay in a Makaha resort Makaha apartments for rent, each of which offers its own full kitchen, allowing you to enjoy fresh tropical foods while cutting down on the restaurant bill.

In each rental, rest and relaxation await from the private bedrooms. Make yourself at home in Makaha, unpacking your luggage and stowing it out of sight for the entirety of your stay. Whether traveling as a couple or group, you will appreciate the privacy that bedrooms separated from the main living area provide. Each bedroom is equipped with comfortable beds and linens for a good night’s rest, ensuring you wake up rested and ready to embrace the day along Oahu’s stunning west coast.
Living life right along the ocean means you will likely often be rinsing away the salt and sand from your day at the beach. Whether you begin your day with a refreshing shower or end the day rinsing away the evidence of your day along the coast, you will find convenience and modernity in the bathrooms of these condos.
A wealth of amenities are available for your enjoyment and relaxation at our Makaha resort rentals.

Activities Convenient to Makaha
Some of Oahu’s most beautiful white sand beaches are located along the island’s western coast. Makaha Beach Park offers a wide swath of soft sand curled up next to the ocean that stretches for a mile, perfect for long days of quiet lounging along the seashore. Especially during the summer months, this beach can offer excellent swimming, bodyboarding, surfing, and snorkeling opportunities. Conditions are generally calmer in the summer months when the swell is down, making it a pleasant location for water activities, especially for beginners who are hoping to learn the popular sports of bodyboarding and surfing. Along the sides of this bay are shallow coral reefs, where snorkelers will be delighted to swim alongside green sea turtles and tropical fish. Winter months can bring larger waves and stronger currents, although there are often exceptions. Even if the water isn’t ideal for swimming, the day can be well spent with a hammock strung between two palm trees and a good book!
Beyond Makaha Beach, West Oahu offers further grounds for exploration. Just south of Makaha, Dolphin Excursions offers boat tours from the conveniently located Waianae Small Boat Harbor. Onboard one of their well-regarded boats, take in scenic views of the sea and coastline. These boat excursions offer the opportunity to enjoy wildlife watching, catching sight of marine life such as dolphins, sea turtles, tropical fish, and humpback whales (in season). Enjoy snorkeling from an offshore location and swimming alongside tropical marine life in their natural habitat. Embarking on an early-morning tour may even enable you to swim with dolphins! From December through March, the whale watching tour is a popular way to get up close and personal with the humpback whales that have migrated from Alaska for the season.
Traveling north from Makaha, the road continues for just 7 more miles before ending at the spectacular Ka’ena Point State Park. Makaha’s position as the last town before the road comes to a dramatic end truly makes it a special place. Ka’ena Point State Park offers scenic coastal trails to be explored by hikers, and a remote feel that is a drastic change from the busy streets of Waikiki. Take the coastal trail 2.7 miles (one-way), soaking in views of volcanic rocks, emerald mountains, and the endless Pacific. Be sure to bring along plenty of water, as there is little shade on this trail. Ka’ena Pont Arch, a picturesque sea arch, is one of the many photo-worthy sites you will see along the way.
From enjoying a relaxing day at the beach to swimming with dolphins, island life is all easily accessible from our Makaha vacation rentals!
