Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Photo on left, of the beach was taken from this unit's lanai! You have found the perfect condo for enjoying the ocean in Hawaii. Located on the ground floor, elevator hassles don't exist. With two extremely large sliding glass doors opening onto your own private lanai, natural light floods this entire unit. From any room in the unit you can view world famous Makaha Surfing Beach. In the evenings sit on the lanai and watch the sunset on the ocean. If you enjoy sailing, the owner of this condo offers private charters for up to four guests on his meticulously maintained Sparkman and Stephens designed Catalina 38 yacht.

The kitchen is COMPLETELY stocked with every utensil / pot and pan you might need. From the wine opener to the bath towels this unit is ready to help you relax and enjoy the best that Hawaii has to offer.

The swimming pool is state of the art technology. It is a heated, salt-water pool. This means there is no chorine taste in the water, no salty taste either. It is wonderful way to relax after a day at the beach, hiking, or just sight seeing.

There is a teak bar in the unit that will help you enjoy those margaritas and mai-tais as you watch the waves roll up on the beach.

You have worked hard, now its time to play hard. Come visit us and enjoy Hawaii.

Why Kriss Conley chose West Oahu

Owning at the Shores was an easy decision because of its unbelievable beach and the wonderful feeling of relaxation one gets while visiting there.

What makes this condo unique

Some of Hawaii's best surfers come to Makaha surfing beach every day. From this condo you will have a perfect viewing vantage point.

Great condo. Kriss is a fantastic owner

  • 4 of 5

The condo was everything that it was supposed to be. The views were spectacular. There are a few maintainence things that could be taken care of (left sliding glass door, right screen door and handle for shower is hard to shut off). These 3 small items did not in any way deminish or pleasure staying here. I would stay here again. I would highy recommend this condo.

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

Seeing as it's rainy today, I thought I'd take the time to write this review. We have vacationed in Maui many times, and have also been to the Big Island and have always enjoyed our holidays. This year we stayed in Kriss's condo at Makaha Shores. It is the best Hawaiian vacation we've ever had. Sleeping on the super comfortable bed, hearing the sound of the surf, waking to the sunrise.

The comfortable furniture, crisp sheets, plush towels, dishes and glassware, gives this spacious, comfy, super clean condo a warm and relaxed beach feel. Air conditioning was not needed as the ocean breezes along with the ceiling fans kept us comfortable on even the warmest days and nights.

We enjoyed great snorkeling in crystal clear water just steps from the condo, relaxing on the spacious lanai and watching the surfers. Being on the ground floor was great as we had grass which extended the lanai, and were close to the pristine heated saltwater pool, laundry, and the parkade.

The well secured building complex is very well maintained and the courtyard garden, pool and barbecue area is nicely manicured with flag stone pathways, palm trees and other tropical plants.

We enjoyed golfing at a beautiful golf course with ocean views just a short 10 minute drive up the mountain. It was also great going sailing with Kriss, seeing whales and snorkeling off the boat.

It was a daily privilege to see the locals enjoy the surf on their beach. We found them to be very friendly, courteous, respectful, helpful and happy. We feel that we have found the "heart" of Hawaii.

We're looking forward to coming back to this beautiful spot. Our flights and Kriss' condo are already booked for next year.

Welcome Home!

  • 5 of 5

If you’re looking for a stress free atmosphere to kick back, relax, and enjoy all that the beach has to offer, this is the place for you! 1st, Kriss is an incredibly accommodating host, who gives you complete free reign of his condo. Once the key has been passed, it’s yours and yours alone. He doesn’t hover, but he is readily available if you have any questions or need something, whatever, whenever. 2nd, this condo is situated perfectly to provide you with exceptional views of the sunrise, sunset, surfers, and of course, the beach, yet still permits the easiest access to all of the amenities. Since the condo is located on the ground level, I was a little concerned about it being noisy, but the only thing audible were the waves crashing onto the shoreline. 3rd, the shores is one of the very last places to reside on a dead end, west shore road. If you enjoy stress, traffic and hoards of people, stay in Waikiki, but if you’d rather have the beach all to yourself, this is your place. Everyone at the shores made us feel as though we were their neighbors, not tourists.

btw, I don’t care what your currently planning to do while visiting Oahu, but do make plans to go sailing w/ Kriss. Just as with the condo, his boat practically becomes your boat. The kids are still jabbering about our little sunset sail and how much they enjoyed it. We did too. Thanks again.

Off the beaten path, exactly what we wanted!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Kriss! Your place is so relaxing and enjoyable! You are a wonderful host and very accommodating! Loved to sit out on the lanai and watch the surfers! Having the sound of the ocean lull us to sleep was awesome! Ground floor was definitely a plus to be able to walk right out onto the beach, couldn't ask for anything more! I wish we were back there! Mahalo! John and Kelly

Fantastic Sunset

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderful time at this condo. I enjoyed the most beautiful sunset I have ever seen from the lanai. The entire condo was clean, comfortable and well-maintained. It had all the niceties of home plus wonderful relaxing waves to lull me to sleep. The owner was a great host. I can't wait to stay here again. I loved it. I would highly recommend this property.
