  • The most beautiful place on earth...

    "My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and we couldn't have been more happy. It was absolutely amazing. We were met by Carol when we got there and then proceeded to check out the room... and it was just so perfect. Walking into the room was probably one of the most memorable moments of our trip. Carol had fresh pineapple and a bottle of wine chilling for us. There were fresh flowers throughout the room and Hawaiian music playing. The best part was the curtains blowing in the wind to the open lanai and the sunset in the background (perfect timing!). Did I mention the bed practically looks over the ocean? I'll never forget this image in my head! Thank you Carol! It seemed to be sunny over Makaha every day, even when it was cloudy over other parts of the island. It's definitely a little safe haven, and even the hurricanes avoided us. Nevertheless, Carol was so nice and sent us weather updates every day and made sure all was well with the storms coming. We were so excited to see the condo had a ton of useful things to use on our trip... snorkelling gear, bodyboards, towels, beach chairs, an umbrella, maps, books on Oahu, etc. It was nice not to have to go out and buy any of these things for a two week use. If you want to tour the island, Makaha is a little out of the way, but spending your lazy beach days on a (practically) private beach makes it totally worth the extra driving. We would stay here again in a heartbeat and have already decided that going back is a must. Thank you Carol for making our Hawaii experience the most amazing one. Oahu has definitely captured my heart."

  • Great place to stay

    "This was a great place to stay for the money. Only complaint is that you must travel further to get to other sites."

  • Relaxing trip worth every penny

    "My family went to Hawaii for the first time and of course we worried what kind of place we had rented but once we got there we were very happy. The condo was clean and spacious with a view to die for and the beach is great. No crowds and noise. There was information on where the stores and restaurants are (w/ miles and time) and activities to do. Easy drive to all your adventures. The condo has some board games and a selection of books. The grounds and condo are secure. It was such a relaxing vacation none of us wanted to come back to reality. Thank you Fred...We'll be back"
