Great vacation house
"We've done alot of vrbos around Oahu. The location can not be beat! If you're looking for the hustle and bustle then this is not for you.... But if you want to relax, away from the crowds and watch the ocean, then this is the spot! The beaches on this side of the island are far more prettier and swimmable!"

"The Turtle house was an amazing place for the purpose of our trip! I had the privilege of guiding 10 teacher candidates to work on the Waianae Schools for the month of January. The house could not have been a more perfect location for our needs. Rita and Bob were the consummate hosts, Heidi responded to our every email and request and worked with us on our billing and Debi was simply incredible and welcoming upon our arrival, all of them providing us with the Aloha Spirit!
During our month of service and learning, we had the opportunity to get to know our neighbors, the community and the surrounding area. We even danced a little to a luau (wedding) happing two doors down, and were even invited to join them! We never once felt unsafe, and marveled at the beautiful surroundings! Hey, what college student wouldn’t want a classroom setting to be in Hawaii’s beautiful surroundings! We made it a point to become a part of the community, and not just a visitor!
We ventured out to various points on the island, and always looked forward to our rest time at the house. How could you not with countless numbers of whales breaching daily, turtles swimming outside the back lawn, and of course the Turtle Bar to play music and unwind after a long day in the schools! We hope to make this our home away from home for many years to come, as we strengthen our relationship with the Waianae Schools and help the district to grow local teachers who will return to the community to teach for a lifetime!
Aloha and Mahalo!"

"I cannot say enough positive things towards our stay at Tracy’s place. After greeting and showing us around her stylish condo, we felt right at home. Tracy saw to our comfort immediately with drinks in the refrigerator, plus lists of highlights to see and where to shop & eat. This roomy condo left us feeling relaxed after our stay. I definitely would recommend this place for family with children of all ages (ours were 23 and 28)."

"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."
