About the property

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


This spectacular one-bedroom apartment is located direct ocean front with panoramic mountain and ocean views from sunrise to sunset.

On the lanai, you have the feeling of being on a cruise ship, looking down directly into the ocean. The constant sounds of the surf energize your days and lull you to sleep at night.

The apartment is located directly in front of the famous surfing beach and, at coconut tree height, provides an unobstructed view of the entire wave. Surfers are almost always in the water and watching their rides provides non-stop entertainment.

Inside, the 520 sq. ft. unit provides every convenience and comfort to make your visit the most enjoyable. LIving room, bedroom, kitchen and bathroom have all been recently remodelled.

Luxury level furnishings include traditional Hawaiian bamboo and wicker furniture, shoji sliding doors, a brand new queen-size bed and even a massage table!

Other features include a fully appointed kitchen, up-to-date electronics, state-of-the-art entertainment system, and plenty of storage in this spacious one-bedroom apartment.

An hour's drive from the crowded commercialism of Waikiki, Makaha is a world apart, offering the visitor an opportunity to connect with the natural environment of Hawaii. Secluded beaches, ocean creatures (seals, dolphins, whales), hiking trails, and exotic native plants can all be experienced nearby.

Come stay at our place and see for yourself!

Perfect beach location!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was perfect. The condo was wonderfully appointed with everything we needed to enjoy days at the beach and cook dinners to enjoy on the lanai. We kept the doors open at night and were lulled to sleep by the crashing waves. Can’t wait to come back!

Makaha shores

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful area! Our check in went very smoothly. We found the place very easily. It's the best beach ever. We sat and watched the surfers for literally hours. It was very entertaining. They make it look so easy. This condo was very well stocked with everything you might need. Even a surf board and wet suit. Boogie board and beach chairs. The pool is nice with chairs to sit on and lounge on. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I would rent a vehicle so your able to get to restaurants. We got food from Costco and ate at our place mostly. Costco is about 20 mins drive away. And there are grocery stores about 10 mins away driving. This condo is not a luxury hotel but it is comfortable and the view is spectacular. We would go back.

West coast gem

  • 5 of 5

A cosy well-laid-out and functionally equipped condo with what must be one of the best views on the island, overlooking the lovely Makaha surf beach and its dawn-to-dusk entertaining scenes. Lovely sunsets from the lanai; you basically get the same or better view than the dinner cruise boats, and with a pair of binoculars you can see whales or spinner dolphins offshore from time to time. It is a fair drive up the West side of the island to this area, and with the heavy commuter traffic at certain times of day maybe not the best base of operations if your primary objective is to get to all the tourist sites, including Honolulu area and the East side. However, if you are more interested in natural surroundings, nice uncrowded beaches, hiking opportunities, diving, or a more laid-back small - town vibe with friendly locals, it's hard to imagine a better place to do it. We ran into a Guide on Diamond Head one day and when a member of our party mentioned where we were staying, he said "Best kept secret on Oahu". Building has good security, parking and pretty good maintenance for its age, and the owners are responsive. Had a very enjoyable stay and wish we were back there now as we sit staring at the snow ....

I'm not sure I can add anything new in my review. I absolutely agree with the other comments. We spent 2 fabulous weeks in this condo and enjoyed every minute. Yes it is a compact condo but it is very well appointed and the available space well utilized.

The view is breathtaking! Waking up in the morning, just as the sun is beginning to lighten the sky you open you eyes and gaze out on the ocean from your comfortable bed as the first surfers start to paddle out to catch a wave.

Breakfast on the lanai was such a treat...kona coffee, fresh pineapple and papayas while you spot whales, dolphins and even a turtle! The beach was only a few yards away and it was very busy with local surfers. The beach was fantastic for walking and of course the condo had everything you could need for a day at the beach!

Thank you for sharing you little corner of paradise with us!

Holiday Oasis

  • 5 of 5

We spent 14 days in this well situated and comfortable condo overlooking the ocean and Makaha Beach. The condo itself provided all of the amenities and comforts we needed. We appreciated the well equipped kitchen and the quality bedding and towels. The complex itself is also very clean and quiet, well taken care of by the Manager Vern. The balcony was the highlight of the apartment, affording a spectacular view at all hours of the day. We had the best seats for the fireworks New Year's Eve. My favourite part of staying in this condo was the ability to walk along some of the most beautiful and pristine beaches in the world.

Perfect location on the west coast's best beach!

  • 5 of 5

We could quite happily have sat on this balcony for the rest of our days!

A trip to Makaha is not a 5 star tourist trap. It is an opportunity to stop, relax and enjoy a truly beautiful spot.

Our family of 4 surfed, snorkled, and soaked up the winter sun. Seeing turtles, whales and dolphins was a daily event that Waikiki tourists paid $200 each to hop on a boat and cruise to our beach to experience.

A hire car is highly recommended as there are no restaurants or cafes in walking distance, and we also made use of the full kitchen.

Using this great condo as our base, we were easily able to explore every corner of Oahu. The North Shore, Polynesian Cultural Centre and Kuoloa Ranch are all fantastic day trips and getting around the island is really simple. You are pretty much an hour and a half from anywhere.

Even though we visited in December, the wet season, Makaha always had exceptional weather and we were rained on every time we headed inland.

The onsite management, Vern and Al, are fantastic. They gave us tips on where to visit as well as information on local surf conditions and places to eat. Respect for the locals goes a long way here.

The condo has everything you need and is certainly the best in the block. We crammed in 2 adults and our 2 boys, 14 and 10, and had a ball. The kitchen is fully equipped, the space is comfortable and well furnished and the balcony exceptional. There is even snorkelling gear and body boards for your use.

We can't recommend this condo highly enough. If you want a chilled, truly local experience without the hustle of a tourist hub, you will love this condo.
