  • 5 STARS ✯✯✯✯✯ AMAZING Beach Front Condo!!!!

    "My girlfriend and I stayed in this beautiful updated condo for a week. It was everything we could hope for..... and more! This was our first time in Hawaii together and we couldn't have chosen a better location than this condo in Makaha. The locals call it Turtle Beach and it's worth every penny. The condo has an awesome view of the super blue ocean water with a nice gentle trade wind breeze and it's situated right on the beach... out the lobby door and you are in the sand! We wanted to have a quiet location to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday and this was perfect... away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. We did need a car to get around and do sightseeing ... but it was great doing our 'own thing' and seeing the whole island, that is... when we weren't enjoying our 'private beach' and the wonderful lanai in the condo. We saw a few dolphins and turtles from the lanai. The condo was exactly as described and was fully stocked with everything we needed, including all the 'stuff' we needed for the beach. We just had to buy our food. My girlfriend and I would definitely come back to this stunning condo again, we wished we could have stayed longer! Some day, we will be back and rather than celebrating her birthday here... I may just ask her to marry me!!! Thank you Kathy for letting us enjoy your gorgeous condo! Hawaii is heaven on earth..... Mahalo & Aloha, Roger and Ebony."

  • Immaculate home with great views!

    "This home is immaculately kept with great views of the ocean and sunsets from every room! Mari is a wonderful host, no detail is overlooked and this home is extremely clean and well appointed. We loved being away from the tourists and having the beach to ourselves. Everybody was so nice and we went to the Tamura market, LnL Hawaiian BBQ, Waianae boat harbor, Sacred Heart Catholic Church, West Oahu SUP and Makaha beach and were greeted with Aloha every place we went. We all felt so at home we started thinking we lived there and forgot we were visiting! I highly recommend this house for your next trip to Oahu!"

  • Wonderful Views! Quiet Location!

    "We generally look for somewhere to stay away from the crowded tourist areas and this was definitely the place on Oahu. We started our vacation on the Labour Day weekend which made travelling to the condo on Friday night quite slow. Every other time we used the highway to the south the traffic was fine. The condo was exactly as described and very comfortable. Of course the views from the Lanai are just amazing, either looking straight down to the beach or viewing the the beautiful sunsets. Kim was very helpful through booking and during our stay. We especially appreciated her flexibility and quick communication when our plans changed a little regarding check in date."

  • The Perfect Base Camp over Canada/USA July holidays

    "Away from the crowds of Waikiki and with easy access to other parts of the island this condo was the perfect 'base-camp' for all our activities. We are adventure seekers that love to explore & hike. But after a long day out traveling about, it's great to come back and cook our own meals and enjoy a quiet beach with only a few friendly locals for company. Everyday at sunrise from the balcony, we watched a family of turtles swim in the surf. Everyday hours before sunset we stayed in the ocean waiting for the green flash then headed to the pool for a final dip. Snorkeling is best along the left side where the turtles live. Waves pickup a little in the afternoon, but not as bad as some other places on the island. Plenty of snorkeling and beach gear in the condo - but we brought our own. There are a couple of boogie boards, chairs, umbrella, games, table-tennis, tennis rackets, and a ukulele! Kitchen is well stocked and very functional. The unit is smaller than what we are used to, but is perfect for a couple. The balcony is roomy and we had our meals there 50% of the time. Some construction was going on during our stay, so we just took off to relax at the beach downstairs. It also gets a little hot in the later afternoon (5-6:30) with the sun shining in on the condo. We used the AC when we first got there, but we soon acclimatized and only needed to have ocean breeze to keep us cool and content! Ko Olinda is about 20 minutes way (so is Costcos). It's nice to spend a day at the Ko Olinda Lagoons. You can go to the different hotels and get pampered during the day (along with the crowds) and then head back to the Condo for an evening swim. Travel to the Dole Plantation and North Point is also good, since you don't have to worry about driving in Waikiki traffic. Some good golf in the area, too (but we didn't go - as the beach outside the condo was too inviting each day!) FYI - You need a car. Also, if you are handicapped, getting into the water at the beach could be a little challenging, since there is a small steep area to get to the surf line (locals use that area as a toboggan run with their boogie boards!). Didn't go to any restaurants in the area (only at Ko Olinda). The Tamura market 2 miles down the street has everything you need grocery-wise, too. (Farmer's Mkt on Sat) Or simply stock up at Costco's on the way from the airport. All-in-all a great modest little place with great views, an excellent quiet beach, and friendly locals."
