  • Comfortable Digs on a Truly Spectacular Beach

    "This is my honest appraisal of this one-bedroom Hawaiian Princess condo on Makaha Beach, written for the benefit of future renters. I was there for 11 nights in February 2015. The 180+ degree unobstructed view from the lanai is Truly Spectacular. The broad, deep beach is one of the best on the island. That includes 5-star sunsets! The beach has clean, golden brown “sesame seed” sand and was practically deserted. Very Few people were out on the beach the entire time I was there, and about half were surfers I watched from my lanai. The condo is on the small side, approx 450-550 sf, but was completely comfortable and adequate for 2 adults. The kitchen was extremely clean, well-equipped and perfectly maintained. Furnishings were attractive and in fine condition. Plenty of linens and beach gear. Condo and lanai were private, in terms of both sight and sound. Wifi was fine for email and there was an option to upgrade the internet service, for a small fee. If you need a wired connection, router is in the unit. There is a large, flat-screen TV with HDTV and HDMI inputs (I used it as a computer monitor). Staff and owners were personable, responsive and helpful. Owners live elsewhere. Facility included secure entry, tennis courts, an outdoor pool and toasty warm outdoor hot tub. The surrounding area had only a few good attractions and restaurants; however, I recommend visiting “Kahumana Farm” (~3 miles away) for locally grown, organic groceries and restaurant. Try to go for dinner on the First Friday of the month, if your trip dates coincide, for a fun night of free live music and other entertainment. They also offer inexpensive daily yoga classes. For other groceries, I liked Tamura Market. Traffic entering and leaving the Makaha/Waianae area was frequently heavy. For this reason, I would Not recommend this condo as a base for sightseeing beyond the immediate area. There were zero insect, noise or privacy problems here."

  • Elegant Accomadations

    "Other than a couple of nights at ski resorts, this was our first owner owned vacation rental. At first, I was hesitant. There were signs posted that the facility did not have the resources of a hotel. I felt out of place and wondered if we would be treated nicely. I worried needlessly. The other occupants of the condo were extremely nice and welcoming. The condo itself was elegant with beautiful furnishings. Little amenities like basic cooking supplies, (salt, pepper, balsamic vinegar ect...,) ice chests, beach chairs, and beach towels, made our stay comfortable and made us feel at home. Waianae is a bit isolated and the town is not tourist oriented, but we enjoyed the isolation and the authentic Hawaiian feel. The view from the lanai was incredible. Kim was great to work with. We hope to stay there again soon."

  • Tropical Bliss!

    "This was our first time for a family of 11 using VRBO for a vacation house and we were not disappointed. This beautiful 5 bedroom dream house was amazing and EVERYTHING the owner promised. We had spent several days in bustling Waikiki before coming to the house and when we walked up the stairs we were all blown away. This is what we were dreaming of on a holiday! The house was immaculate, 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a kitchen that had everything we needed. There were all sorts of extra toys provided for the pool and for snorkelling and boogie boarding. Our family loved that each day we had the choice to either enjoy the privacy of the pool or walk/drive only a short distance and join the locals on the sandy beach for the playing in the waves. We felt very safe. When you read the last several reviews about this house (I don't want to repeat all the same stuff) I wholeheartedly agree with all the positive things expressed. I would highly recommend this house and look forward to coming back soon. Billy the caretaker was very helpful and we loved the idea that when we left we had some food that we didn't want to throw out and Billy assured us it would be used for the homeless. What a great idea!"

  • Perfect beach house.

    "Great place to stay... the house was great. We saw whales, turtles, and dolphins right from the lanai. There is great snorkeling right off the beach, surfing too. The beach is very quiet and private. If you want to explore, go north on the main road and you'll find some nice beaches in a beautiful area - just 10 minutes north. There aren't a lot of restaurants in the area which was fine as there was a grocery store is close by and we loved to cooking & bbq'ing watching the sunsets. The town is a poor area but it didn't affect our stay. Vicky was easy to book with and we had no issues during our stay."
