Shangri-La in Makaha
"My husband and I stayed in this wonderful condo unit for over a month. Lucky us! Pam was a lovely person to deal with; kind, generous and friendly. The condo was outfitted extremely well with quality items and beautiful things. I would say it is the best VRBO we have ever stayed in. The highlight was the the amazing view from the lanai. We spent hours out there. We watched the absolutely gorgeous sunsets almost every night and must have taken 300 photos. We had breakfast out there every morning. From the lanai we also saw dolphins, large sea turtles and humpback whales. The beach in front is a hidden gem and is never, ever crowded.We have stayed on the Waianae Coast several times over the last 38 years and love the area because it is on the leeward side which means sunny and dry. We often drove a short distance to Pokai Beach where the water is very calm for swimming. There is an interesting heiau there to explore, too. Yokohama Beach at the end of the road is wild and beautiful and the hike to see the albatross reserve at Kaena Point is well worth it. We loved the Sat. morning market behind Long's Drugstore where fresh organic veggies among other things could be purchased. We highly recommend Kahumana Rest.on an organic farm on Lualualei Homestead Rd. We can't say enough about the wonderful time we had there. Mahalo, Pam!!"

"It was a long trip from New York but it was sooo worth it. The beach (right in front of you) is unbelievable, the view of the ocean from the balcony is breathtaking, sunsets are spectacular. And you can easily drive to anywhere on the island. Did you get the idea that I LOVED it. Nora's condo has every amenity you could possibly want from beach chairs, snorkeling equipment, umbrellas, every kitchen gadget, even a rice cooker. I've always stayed in Waikiki-never again. I'm already planning my next Hawaiian Princess vacation at Nora's."

"Kathy's condo was perfect! This condo was renovated with tasteful appointments, a beautiful kitchen, very comfortable bed, a dishwasher, and a washer/dryer. The place where you will spend all your time will be the spacious lanai. The view is spectacular! Sunsets, moonsets, and watching the light change of the ocean during sunrise will fill the soul. The beach below is one of the best on the island! On a crowded weekend day there might be ten umbrellas dotting the sand. Locals and visitors share the waves. The water is absolutely beautiful. Make sure to bring your snorkeling equipment (or use one of the sets left behind by past guests) because you are going to love swimming wight he numerous turtles. This is the place to stay if you want to get away from the tourist crush and experience a locals only Oahu. Waianae now has a Starbucks, but I recommend buying Kona coffee for your relaxing mornings on the lanai. This is also a Jamba Juice for pre-hike fueling. You have to drive to Ko Olina for the nicer restaurants, shops, and conveniences, but the short drive is well worth being away from the crowds. If you stop for supplies on your way in, you would not need to leave the property to fully enjoy your stay at this beautiful condo.
A note about Kathy: I stayed for a week and then left to continue my vacation in Kauai. As soon as I boarded the plane, I realized I left all my medications in the side table at the condo. I suffer from a painful medical condition and the rest of my vacation could have been ruined. Kathy answered her phone even though she was away on the Big Island, and was gracious and understanding. She had the medications overnighted to my condo in Kauai. She really went above and beyond. I look forward to my next stay!"

"Let me start with the beach, this is one of the best swimming- relaxing beaches I've been to! This condo is out of the hustle and bustle of the city, which is very relaxing. Pearl Harbor is a must see, one day was plenty of time to see everything for us. There are not too many restaurants nearby. There are a couple of food trucks- if you want a restaurant with a view of the beach or the ocean good luck. Best to stock up at Costco and cook at condo, rental car is a must do. The condo was clean and comfortable, could use a little updating but can't expect much at the bargain price! Air conditioning doesn't work that good, it kept popping the circuit breaker. I called maintenance a couple times but they never showed up, other than that its an awesome condo!"
