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
Laretta is a kind and friendly host who happily made an exception for me to just stay one night instead of the usual minimum of 5. Thanks again! I'll be back as soon as I get the chance
The house is comfortable and cozy and Laretta was incredibly kind and helpful. Definitely take her up on her tour of nearby areas, and I would highly recommend renting a car. As of my trip in January '14, the community was still under construction, so expect some noise during the day, but I didn't mind it at all. The beach view from my room was incredible and the hikes and beaches nearby were beautiful. A great place to stay if you don't mind driving to where you need to go. Thank Laretta!
Was a great stay! Enjoyed the location with the beautiful view.
Although there were several other guests in the house, it never felt crowded and we always had interesting conversations. We would have loved to stay longer!
Laretta was a lovely host, the house immaculately clean and comfortable and in a great location ! We really enjoyed our stay here the mountains in the background and a great beach down the road. It is fairly easy to access the rest of the island if you have a car. We had trouble communicating our arrival time with Laretta as we had no phone, this made it difficult for us to get into the house so we suggest let her know your arrival time before you get there.
This place was a great place for us. Private gated community. Close to quiet Makaha beach apprx a mile away. Clean rooms,Clean bathroom with extra towels. Laretta is very generous.
She genuinely cares for her guests making sure we had everything we needed for a comfortable stay and was always accessible when needed.
This was our 4th trip to Oahu. 1st time in West Oahu and it was definitely the best yet. Mountains on one side and miles of gorgeous beach on the other. We would definitely stay here again.
We had a rental car so we could check out the North shore surf town or do Christmas shopping in Honolulu and sun tan in the east at Kailua beach then come back to the west for a sunset evening. Although a rental car is not necessary since buses run frequently and beaches are close by. One of our favs:Free paddle boarding at Pokai bay by "Uncle George" We really experienced living in hawaii like the locals. This place was was a money saver. Five star at a 2 star price :)

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. :)
