Property description

This condo is located in the magnificent Makaha Valley, a 40 minute drive from the airport and a different planet from Waikiki.

For a nature lover, this is probably the best part of Oahu, with miles of hiking right outside the condo to explore. In the winter, the surfing at Makaha is legendary and there are a number of competitions at Makaha throughout the season. The rest of the year the swimming and snorkeling are wonderful, with turtles and dolphins making regular visits to our local beach. Favorite times to visit are mango season (June - August), when the snorkeling at Makaha is divine; December - February, for the sun and watching surfers, and any other time for the hiking, clean air and sun. You can see the whales breaching offshore from December - March, see the nestling Laysan Albatross (and hatchlings) in the spring...There is local bus service to the beach from the condo development, and it is also walkable - one mile, all down hill (the bus might be a strong option on the way home!).

The condo itself is a two bedroom unit on the third (top) floor, with an expansive view of the ocean and Makaha Valley itself, as well as the mountains. We completely renovated the apartment in July 2011, with bamboo floors, a new kitchen with all new appliances, and new paint.
This is a very special place to me, because it is very peaceful and comfortable.

Location

There are two quality golf courses next door to our Condo complex. Kayaks, surfboards, snorkel gear and bikes are available for rental in local surf shops. There are fishing boats and pleasure boats for hire at our local marina. There are basketball courts, tennis courts, swimming and wading pools in our complex, as well as collecting plumeria flowers for making leis and collecting peacock feathers from our resident flock. The new Disney resort, Aulani, is a 20 minute drive away, and there is a water park in the same area. Shopping, movies, restaurants etc. are also nearby. The hiking in the area is extraordinary, with the Kaeana Point National Wildlife Refuge trailhead a 15 minute drive away. You can walk far into the Makaha Valley from the condo front door.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: Here I am on the walk to Kaena Point, the beautiful far northwest tip of Oahu. I am a musician,and opera singer, and I use my time at Makaha to rejuvenate myself with glorious sunshine, fantastically clean ocean water, and the quiet and serenity of the natural world that is so abundant here. I have been coming here with my son, who is now 16, since he was very small.

Why the Owner Chose Makaha:
Makaha and Yokohama Bay are two of the most beautiful, cleanest and uncrowded beaches on Oahu. The area is blessed with being one of the sunniest on Oahu. There is a National Wildlife Refuge less than 10 miles away. There is world-class golfing next door. And the weather in Hawaii, and especially in Makaha, is marvelous all year round.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Makaha is very relaxing and away from all the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. It's a third floor unit and very quiet and private, and the grounds at MVP are beautifully kept and it is a very secure, quiet gated community. The beach is less than a mile away, and all the beaches along this coast are stunning gems, almost always uncrowded and most have lifeguards. There are some great local farmers markets in the area, and in mango season the mangos drip off the trees - you can sometimes get a whole shopping bag full from neighbors for just a few dollars. From watching whales in the winter, seeing the hatchling Laysan Albatross in the spring, snorkeling and swimming in the late spring - Fall, biking and hiking year round - there is always a special reason to come to Makaha.
