  • Great condo!

    "We loved the condo. It was what we expected and more. It's well kept, clean and spacious. The lanai has a small space and the furnitures are bit dated but that didn't really bother us. Condo is stocked with almost everything you need. The owner is so sweet and gets back to you on any questions you may have in a very timely manner. We will definitely stay in this condo again."

  • 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."

  • 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."
