About this listing
Would you like to escape to the country ? Then come out to stay with us on the beautiful West Coast of Oahu. You will have a private room in a brand new 4 bedroom home which has a stunning view of the surf break at Makaha Beach. It is 9/10 of a mile straight up the hill from that beach. There are 1 - 1/2 shared bathrooms for our guests and 2 kitchens, cable TV, and Wifi access. The home is in a safe, gated community within walking distance to a bus stop. I try to give all our guests the "Nickel Tour" of the coastline, showing them hidden secret places that you will not see on a map. This is the dryer side of Oahu which translates into more days to play outdoors..... We'll show you where to swim with the "locals"...Turtles, Dolphins, and various Tropical Fish. We will loan you snorkel equipment, beach towels and even an ocean kayak, if you'd like. During the winter months, you may even catch a whale breaching or just cruising along the west coast. (I've seen whales while driving along Farrington Hwy). Please check out the U Tube Video "Makaha Beach Turtle cleaning station". This home is close to that. We will gladly share our organic fruits and herbs from our other Airbnb site (Banana Patch Room Rentals.) We frequently have guests from other countries so you may meet some new friends while here. We hope to share a little local aloha with you.....
Its a gated community just a short distance up the hill from the world famous Makaha Surfing Beach. Your private room will have a key and you will receive not only the front door key, but a gate activator to get into the neighborhood.
Interaction with Guests
I am always happy to hear about my guests' experiences during their stay if they choose to share. I will be present part of the time as I do divide my time between my two Airbnb residences.
The stunning views of the Makaha Shore break and the fact that this home is located in a very clean, gated community makes this place a nice "launch pad" from which to tour the whole island.
There is a bus stop 1/4 mile just up the hill from this home.
Other Things to Note
We also have a Jacuzzi spa in the back yard that feels wonderful after surfing or swimming in the ocean.
No smoking on premises, no heavy drinking, no drug use. Quiet time after 10 PM. We appreciate a quiet, serene, restful atmosphere. Keep all common areas clean. Please call and / or communicate with us at least 24 hours prior to your arrival so we know when to expect you at the Pineapple Patch, Mahalo
About the Host, Laretta
Local nurse into health and wellness; there's a garden in the back most of the year. I like a serene, calm environment that promotes good healthy fun! Enjoy ocean activities, and I know little secret places that I'll share with you when you come. The five things I just can't live without would be connecting with my grown kids and my one grand child; Knowing Stephen is here, and the 5 beautiful, loving cats and 1 sweet, soulful dog that lives on this acre with us; Gardening and creating meditative spaces to go to and relax.Last, but certainly not least, would be creating a restful, clean place where guests from all over the world could come and feel "at home and accepted" during their travels. My favorite travel destination is Hawaii ! Favorite motto: "If you think education is expensive, try ignorance"." I would rather wear out, than rust out", "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure".....
