  • Great condo - Excellant View & Location

    "We loved this condo. It came equipped with everything you have at home. We viewed dolphins and sea turtles from the lanai. Plenty of beach items (chairs/umbrellas/snorkeling gear) for a day at the beach. Loved this side of the island since it is less traveled by tourists but not a long drive to Pearl Harbor or other points of interest. We will be back for another piece of paradise. Monica provides a list of local groceries, eateries and points of interest. Monica is only an email or phone call away should you need her. Thank you for this great vacation destination."

  • Location, Location, Location...

    "The best part about this place is the location. You are steps away from the beach and when I mean steps it is literally a stones throw distance from the back slider to the beach. And it is not a scrubby beach it is pristine gem of a beach which you can enjoy without having to make an outing out of it and most of the time you can count the number of other people on one hand. You could get back from a day out and just wander out to enjoy for a few minutes. If you are adventurous you can paddle out to the middle of the cove which contains coral reef and many colorful fish (look out for where the tourist boats drop their people on tours) that is how close and awesome this beach is, the sunsets are breathtaking. Additionally, you can hear the waves break and crash in sets all night long. You do not get all this at the reasonable price offered without a few tradeoffs; that being said you are on the dry side of the island directly off the perimeter highway. The cottage is very open air and has several resident geckos (they eat the bugs). It is mostly local on the leeward side of the island, which means you have a drive ahead of you if you wish to visit many other tourist destinations on the island. Traffic can be little heavy at times and the locals have a interesting driving style which takes some getting used to. None of these elements were detractors from our enjoyment of the place. We had one of the best vacations we have ever had here. When we were at the Makaha Cottage it was so relaxing and restorative. Is this place for everyone, in a word NO. If you are looking for a resort feel or B&B type of place, look elsewhere. If you are self sufficient and want a really awesome home base in an wonderful location, with as much or as little support from your hosts as you want/need and can accept a few "quirks" which come along for the ride, this is the place for you."

  • Loved the sound of the waves!

    "Outstanding sunsets, beautiful condo, and the best beach on the island! We explored many of the island's beaches and none had beauty and the relaxed feel of this one. It was fascinating to watch the locals teach their children to be at home in the water, and as visitors, we were amazed at how friendly and helpful everyone was. When traveling around the island, various local people would ask us where we're staying, and as soon as we said "Makaha Beach,the best beach on the island," they couldn't stop talking about how they had grown up on that beach and how lucky we were. What a special connection,wherever we went people were so ready to talk story about their lives and go out of their way for us! What a memorable experience! We miss the sound of the waves already! Mahalo!"
