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."

"We've done alot of vrbos around Oahu. The location can not be beat! If you're looking for the hustle and bustle then this is not for you.... But if you want to relax, away from the crowds and watch the ocean, then this is the spot! The beaches on this side of the island are far more prettier and swimmable!"

Best way to explore Oahu, enjoy the beach, learn body-boarding - all without breaking the bank!
"This side of the island has great beaches without the crowds. The closest beach was great: Waves big enough to bodyboard, but not too scary for my 8 and 10 year olds to go swimming. The apartment is in a gated community with friendly staff."
