  • Outstanding location, well equipped condo

    "Spent a week here over Christmas. The location and beach are stunning. The waves were very big during our whole stay, and were really too big for our 7/9 year old kids to play in. They got beat up a few times and then retreated to the beach to play. The ocean was cold so we tried the pool, but it is not heated and is even colder than the ocean. There are other calmer beaches nearby, so we explored others where our kids could play and swim in the water safely. The unit itself is small, but very well equipped. The fridge had basic condiments, salad dressings, etc and a spice cupboard was quite well stocked. The only thing I missed during the week was a potato masher when making our Christmas dinner, which was not a big deal at all. There were 3 good boogie boards, life jackets, sand toys, snorkel gear and beach chairs all provided. The queen bed was comfortable, but the sofa bed was awful. You could feel every spring, so after the first night my children chose to sleep on the floor on futon mattresses that are supplied. We had issues with the washing machine making a horrendous grinding sound during the rinse cycle and the property manager was away during our stay, so this was a bit frustrating. On the 4th day we finally received a call from the owner. She was very kind and was aware of previous problems with the machine. We were still able to use the washer for the remainder of the week, but during the day only and not while anyone was sleeping, due to the loud noise. The toaster wasn't working for us either, but after speaking with the owner a new toaster was delivered to our door. I would absolutely stay here again. Lots to see and do in the area and within a 30 minute drive. I found it a bit noisy to sleep at night with traffic and building noise, but by turning on the floor fan in the bedroom I was able to drown it out. One more thing . . . We frequently ran out of hot water and would have to wait between showers. Not that big a deal while on holidays but I wouldn't want to deal with that every day."

  • Home away from home!

    "I cannot say enough positive things towards our stay at Tracy’s place. After greeting and showing us around her stylish condo, we felt right at home. Tracy saw to our comfort immediately with drinks in the refrigerator, plus lists of highlights to see and where to shop & eat. This roomy condo left us feeling relaxed after our stay. I definitely would recommend this place for family with children of all ages (ours were 23 and 28)."

  • Wonderful Home Away from Home.... hard to say goodbye!

    "My husband and I recently returned from an 8 day honeymoon on Oahu, and we are currently still having withdraws from this amazing vacation spot. We chose Oahu because it was very affordable to fly direct from our home town, and we chose to stay in Makaha as we wanted to stay away from Honolulu and all it's craziness. This vacation studio was so much more than we expected! The bed was comfortable, water pressure nice, and there really was everything you could need to cook a nice meal. Warning: this side of the island does NOT have very many restaurants if that is what you are looking for (fast food everywhere though!) but there is a local market (Tamura?) that sells extremely fresh seafood, so we had some amazing home-cooked meals eaten around the fire on the beach. The description for this place leaves so much out, there are so many perks to this place! The backyard overlooking the ocean is straight out of a magazine, and there are body boards, surf boards, snorkeling gear, chairs.... available for your use. We nearly drove around the entire island on our trip, and my one regret is that we did not stop to spend more quality time at this place! Although I feel like I know the island extremely well now... If you are looking for a place with tons of eating and shopping locations, this is not the place for you, but if you want something away from the city, low key and relaxing, this is it! A bit of a drive from the city, but nearly a straight shot. Oh, and you must have a love for cats, as this place has at least a dozen! For the most part friendly, they leave you alone. Really helped me not miss my own cat! We did not get to meet the owners, but I did get a personal call from Carolyn a few days ago thanking us for staying with them and apologizing about a birthday party the neighbors had (which really did not bother us, got us up and moving!) Kelly, the groundskeeper, was fantastic. If we decided to return to Oahu in the future, without a question we will be returning to this spot! May even try to convince our extended family to chose this location as our next family trip spot as they also rent out the bottom portion of the house... Overall, you will not regret renting this place. So much cheaper than any hotel or condo you can find, and so many more benefits!"

  • Amazing Sunsets and Ocean Views!

    "The condo is on the 8th floor and the views of the ocean are awesome. We spent all our evenings on the lanai and watched humpback whales, dolphines, and turtles. The condo is very well stocked with all you require for a comfortable stay. The bed was perfect! The beach is beautiful but not ideal for beach walking as the sand is very soft. Thanks Rob and Paula for allowing us to stay in your condo! It was a great stay."
