  • ABSOLUTELY AWESOME! WHY DID I STAY IN WAIKIKI ALL THOSE YEARS??!!!

    "I am an airline employee and of course get free travel perks. My favorite place to go is Hawaii because it’s WARM & SUNNY plus only a short hop from Oregon. I go a lot! I never even thought about going anywhere but Waikiki until a friend, who just returned from a Hawaii trip, told me about Makaha and these particular owners’ condos. I decided to try Makaha—WHOA! never knew such a piece of “Old Hawaii” could still be found on Oahu! The beach is unbelievably beautiful and not crowded at all—like having your own private beach (on Waikiki Beach, I could roll over and touch the folks on the next beach towel). Makaha locals are very friendly and filled with the “aloha spirit.” Building has excellent security--important to me since I often travel alone. These owners’ condos are all SUPER CLEAN, well maintained, and have all the little extras that beachlovers want: chairs, umbrella, cooler, mat, snorkel gear, and boogie boards. The rates are less than I paid for a tiny hotel room 2 blocks from the beach, and the condo has so much more to offer—even a washer/dryer in the unit as well as FREE PARKING AND INTERNET (I have been paying $35 a day for parking and $15 a day for internet). Bottom line: I will be back as soon as possible—no doubt that this is where we will stay! Mahalo nui!"

  • Great Family Vacation House

    "Our family stayed in the house for two weeks. I would recommend this house for anyone who wants a fantastic back yard right on the beach. We saw spinner dolphins from the lanai on several occasions, and yes they were out of the water spinning, monk seals on the beach and many, many, turtles. The younger group of family swam out to the turtle cleaning station. The house has everything you need for cooking, large kitchen table for playing games with the family, long counters to have buffet style dinners, picnic tables for the back lawn (we ate dinner out there several times), and beach equipment. Inga's Realty was great to book our trip through. This is the more rural side of the island, so rent a car if you want to travel around the island. Plenty of parking at the house. Thank you for sharing your house."

  • Utter Paradise

    "My husband and I just spent 10 nights in Kathy's unit. We were in a different unit in the Cabanas last September as well, spending a week here, then on to a week in Maui--we loved Makaha so much that this year we decided to stay in one place and just soak it in--we didn't even rent a car this time, hopped on The Bus a couple of times for grocery runs. The unit was sparkling clean and fully equipped. I cannot properly express what a paradise Turtle Cove is. If you are looking for nightlife, this is off the beaten path a bit, but if you're looking for peace and relaxation, you cannot beat this place. The weather is always warm, the sunrise is incredible and the sunsets are so beautiful it's like a move scene, cool breezes keep the unit comfortable, the beach never has more than 15-20 people (and it's a good half mile long). Large national chain stores are handy on the way, but we discovered Tamura's Market (2 miles away), and prefer to support the smaller merchants. Cooked dinner every night but one and ate on the beach or on the lanai and our dinner at Coquitos just down the road was over the top. The staff is friendly and helpful, Kathy was quick to respond to any questions we had and is extremely professional. When the only problem with a place is you have to be careful that the ice from the refrigerator door doesn't plop out of the glass and skid across the floor, it doesn't get much better... Cannot wait until we go 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."
