About the property

Aloha! Enjoy Hawaii how it used to be in this exquisite condo nestled in the majestic mountains of Makaha Valley offering beautiful panoramic ocean views. Here you will find a tranquil oasis away from the hustle and bustle of city life with a small town feel reminiscent of old Hawaii.

Swim in the heated salt water pool, sunbathe at famous Makaha Beach, golf, hike or go on a Dolphin cruise. Spend the evenings watching the sun set into the ocean as you sip wine on your private outside sit down lanai.

Studio: Queen bed, twin memory foam sofa bed

This charming condo exudes tropical elegance resort living. Floor to ceiling windows offering panoramic ocean & mountain views. Gourmet kitchen, complete with all your cooking needs. Beautifully-designed spacious bathroom w/ upgraded shower. New tropical/polynesian style furnishings with comfortable queen size bed & twin size sofa bed with memory foam mattress. New 49” flat screen smart TV, cable & wifi. Outside SIT-DOWN lanai offers the perfect setting for morning coffee and evening drinks while enjoying the natural beauty surrounding you. Relax in the heated salt-water pool or enjoy grilling on one of the six propane grills in the barbecue area.

*Sit-down lanai in the studio units refers to a larger sized lanai allowing room for table & chairs. Most of the units offer a stand-up lanai that does not allow room for table/chairs.

You will have access to the pool, BBQ area and laundry facilities. There is also a nice hike that is just outside of the entry gate heading up towards the mountain. Just follow the path.

Amenities include a well-equipped kitchen, flat-screen cable TV, free WiFi, central air conditioning, linens, towels, a private lanai, patio furniture, beach towels, beach chairs, boogie boards and more!

Makaha is on the West side of the island where the weather is beautiful nearly every day and the sunsets are magical at night. You will find long strands of white sandy beaches and crystal blue ocean. Surfing, swimming, stand-up paddle boarding, diving, fishing, hiking golf & tennis provide recreation & relaxation. Dolphin, fishing and whale-watching (late Nov-Feb) tours are available in nearby Waianae Harbor. Ko’Olina, a 25 minute drive, offers great fine dining, shopping, Paradise Cove Luau and beautiful sandy lagoons near the Aulani Disney Resort. Wet-N-Wild Hawaii Water Park, Costco, Walmart and a host of other shops and dining facilities are located in nearby Kapolei.

Makaha Valley Towers is a gated complex with 24 hr. security providing safety and privacy ensuring a quiet, relaxing environment. Fourteen acres of lush landscaped property with roaming wild peacocks, create a unique atmosphere, complimenting the natural beauty of the valley.

There is a public bus stop right outside the complex gate. You can actually ride around the island on this bus, however; there are many transfers that can be a bit complicated. It is highly recommended that you rent a car.

*There is a Welcome Guide Book waiting for you in the condo unit. In this book, I have recommended activities to do, places to go, restaurants, etc.

**Guest must provide ID at front security gate, and sign in at the main office between 8-5 Mon-Fri to pick up their parking pass (night or weekend arrivals will be given a temporary parking pass until they register the next available business day). Parking is available for $4 per day, with refundable deposit of $50 - payable in CASH at the complex office.

Keys will be in a lockbox (code given upon comfirmation)

Breathtaking views and comfortable living and a chance to slow down.

  • 5 of 5

Everywhere you look you see great ocean views and picturesque volcanic cliffs. If you want a change from the city this is a perfect place for you, quiet, restful. The apartment was very comfortable. Nice bed. The kitchen was well stocked. Saltwater pool. Peacocks. Extra touches like chocolate macadamia samples. I would definitely stay there again.

Beautiful location off the beaten path

  • 5 of 5

Truly enjoyed the condo, the views, the property. Makaha is far away from the tourist area and the locals are friendly. I would come here any time. Jennifer was very prompt in responding. The lanai is quite wonderful to enjoy any time of the day.I think this is one of the BEST values! Also, security on site, so you feel safe and secure!

On part of the island that has few tourists but the island is not big so you can get everywhere if you rent a car. Wonderful to have a full kitchen. Beautiful place.

My friend and I spent 3 nights at Jennifer's Hale with breathtaking views. Highly recommended!!!

  • 5 of 5

This spot is a gem and deserves many kudos. All from easy booking to the easy check-in (with prime parking) and check-out. Loved well stocked kitchen and sweet treats 😊. BBQ area is superb. We played golf at the Makaha Country Club which is conveniently close by. Property is very safe and guarded, staff is friendly and available. Office has book library and quite a few magazines to read by the poolside. Pool is not crowded and residents are very friendly. Our stay was a breeze and we saw a huge rainbow the last evening over the Valley. Amazing!!! Thank you Jennifer for sharing your Hale with us.

P.S. Peacock family greated us goodbye as we were leaving, awwwww

Nice and clean!

  • 4 of 5

The pictures are exactly as the room is. Nice view. Nice grounds. The condo is clean and has everything needed. Loved the room and Jennifer was great. This was our first time renting on VRBO so we didn't know what to expect. It was a good experience all around. A few things you will need to know before staying here. Make sure you have $5 and $10 bills for the laundry card. The machine doesn't accept $1 bills. You will want to wash towels if you are staying more than a few days since there are not that many provided for you. On your way in from the airport, you want to stop in Barbers Point to get some groceries and a bite to eat. There are local places and fast food places about 3 - 4 miles from the condo, which we enjoyed, but it was nice being able to grill and make our own meals/snacks. If you arrive on a weekend, you won't be able to get the parking pass to park in the back until the office opens. That also means you have to stop at security every time you come in and out of the place. They have to give you a new pass each day and want you to turn in your visitor pass every time you leave. You will also need to plan on the traffic and slow speed limits. My son is stationed on Sand Island (near the airport) and it took us at least 45 mins to drive back and forth each way. Most of the time it was at least an hour to drive one way to Waikiki. The only other thing is, if you are early risers, as we are. You will need to be quiet until 7am. We enjoy sitting outside in the mornings, but apparently was too loud for the neighbor upstairs when we opened and closed the sliding glass door, until we figured out how slowly we had to open and close it. It is definitely worth staying here as long as you know what to expect. :)

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, Teresa, for your nice review & detailed tips. I'm happy you & Robert enjoyed your time spent at my condo. I appreciate you mentioning how opening & closing the sliding glass doors could be noisy & am also happy to report that they now have brand new wheels & can open & close quietly! Please come visit us again!
