Recent Makaha reviews

  • Loved the location and the sounds of the waves.

    "We spent only a few nights here but loved the location and the peace and quiet. Went to Wikiki after and missed it terribly. Clean and the check in went smoothly. Stopped at Longs Drug to pick up food and drink and was able to leave the door open all night to get the winds to cool the condo off. Would highly recommend the Hawaiian Princess."

  • Awesome vacation

    "We enjoyed this beautiful house for 10 days at the end of April. It was wonderful. There were four generations in our party. From 88 to 3 year old. It was comfortable for everybody. There are no stairs on the first floor, which is very important for the oldest generation. There is a lot of space inside and outside for the kids to play. The beach is right behind the house. There is Pokai bay beach two mile away which has very calm water on one side of the bay , perfect for the little kids. The northern side of the bay is good for surfing. There is a little beach at the end of the street with sea turtles. Plenty of fun for everybody. The owner Jackie is very nice and helpful. Thank you Jackie and Greg, we hope to come back next year."

  • beautiful sunset and quiet beach setting away from crowd's

    "We stayed two weeks here and just returned home. We had a great time, very nice to have beach towels, umbrella, fins, snorkel, mask provided for use in the unit. The air in the morning was fresh, plumeria was full bloom so it had a nice sweet aroma. We liked the local feel and fact it was away from the hustle of the Honolulu area. We did drive into the city a few times but spent most if our time there at the property enjoying its great beach. I will recommend the property to family and friends going to the island. Read other review concerning wave and road noise but we only experienced the noise on the first night. We quickly became adjusted and the salt air made us sleep great at night. Stars and moon were a highlight since your away from the big city you can really appreciate the night sky. Thanks for allowing us to stay, we will be returning on our next visit to Oahu. Mahalo from shad & tanya from the Pacific Coast."

  • Nice Place, Great Stay

    "We found this beach front condo to be exactly what we were looking for. We had stayed 2 nights in Waikiki, but then traveled to Makaha for the remaining 5 days of our vacation. Our friends rented the unit next door which is also owned by the same people. It was great to have privacy but be next to our friends. When we first arrived at the condo we did notice a few tiny moths flying about, with a fly swatter we were able to take care of that problem on the first night, and had no other bug issues. I assume they are from the Screen Door not working correctly, as a previous renter mentioned. The screen door would not stay closed when we arrived, upon further inspection the track near the magnet was filled with sand and debris. After cleaning that out the screen worked well except for when it was windy out. This condo supplied us with ample towels, hand soap, and anything else we needed. I loved the toys that were available on site. We got great use of the boogie boards and floating noodles. There were also plenty of other toys we ended up not using, but it was wonderful to have all the options and not have to worry about buying or renting them. We were there when the weather was really hot (85-95 deg) and not too many trade winds, I think an A/C unit would have made our stay a little more comfortable. Overall a great place that appeared to be well cared for and maintained. We were able to make several day trips out to locations that were not too far from the condo; Pearl Harbor (FYI, you don’t need to pre-book. We ended up walking around and visiting the Arizona Memorial which was free), The North Shore, The Dole Plantation, and Waikiki. Traffic was not the best so if possible try to avoid rush hour, if you can avoid rush hour, traffic was not a problem. Thank you!"
