Recent Makaha property reviews

  • Great Beach Living

    "This beach side cabana in the Makaha Beach Cabanas was excellent. The cabana was very clean with a well stocked kitchen and plenty of gear for beach fun. The beaches in Makaha are gorgeous and not at all crowded like the beaches near Honolulu or the North Shore. Although it only took about an hour to get to the beaches on the North Shore from this cabana and 30 minutes to get to Waikiki beach, as long as you don’t travel during rush hour. It should be noted that if you are looking for fancy resort style living with room service than this is not the place for you, but if you are looking for a great Hawaiian vacation on an uncrowned beautiful beach than this place is perfect. Sitting on the Lanai (patio) at sunset watching the ocean can’t be beat."

  • Yay!

    "We really enjoyed our stay here. I think what sold it for me was being able to walk out onto the beach from the back door! It was exactly as pictured too. Thank you so much for sharing it with us!"

  • A wonderful, relaxing visit.

    "We had a fantastic stay at this lovely condo. Once we settled in, we just enjoyed the quiet early mornings with coffee and fresh fruit, went for a walk down to the beach or in the hills above the condo and then made plans for the day. Sometimes we just stayed in and read books most of the morning and then went down to Makaha beach for the afternoon. Other times we packed beach bags and chairs and drove up to the end of the road to the practically deserted Yokohama Bay and beach. The flat two mile hike to Kaena Point is amazing. Another time we packed the car with everything we needed and drove to the North Shore for the day: beach all morning, Haleiwa Joe's for lunch and then a drive along the North Shore to watch the surfing at all those legendary beaches. We had dinner at one of the Haleiwa restaurants and then made the drive back to the condo. One day we made a trip into Waikiki, did some shopping and just spent the day having fun at the beach, the zoo and aquarium. One evening, after just lying low near the condo and the beach, we drove down to Kapolei for dinner and a movie. The condo is a special place; quiet and off the beaten track, yet a great "base camp" for many Hawaiian adventures. We'll be back."

  • Oceanfront Dream Vacation Home

    "We had a lovely time in the house. The location was awesome. The house was great. A few nights it was very hot but .... would have enjoyed having some more wine glasses. Really enjoyed the selection of books to read while there. The tidal pools were great to explore nice that the house had water shoes for walking and exploring the tidal pools. The house was as described. I would totally recommend this home to all."
