About C H Lee

Makaha is the most affordable place to vacation in Hawaii-- wish we would have known about it years ago! The rural setting and the abundance of sea life on the West Oahu Shores make this a great place for people who like the nature and the outdoors-- we love boating, snorkeling, and hiking and can provide you with info on lots of popular and/or 'secret' locations for these activities! It's also a great place for families on a budget, so we make sure our condos are kid-friendly! Makaha turns a Hawaii vacation dreams for families with kids into a reality!

C H Lee purchased this condo in 2010

Fabulous location but a dated condo!

  • 3 of 5

There is no doubt that the location of this condo on the second floor, overlooking the beach is fantastic.

The condo itself could be much improved. It is old fashioned, dismal and quite shabby. The furnishings are old, dated and uninspiring. It needs a total facelift. The worst aspect of this condo were the pillows on the bed. They were all stained and one had old, dried blood on it! Completely unacceptable and unhygienic.

When we arrived we found that the whole of the condo wasn't as clean as we would have expected it to be. The cream curtains in the bedroom were very dirty. There was a lot of outdated food left in the fridge and cupboards. We would not choose this particular condo again unless it had been freshened up.

The condos on the upper floors have spectacular views and having seen two condos on floor 9, they were far superior to 201,

We had a wonderful time at Makaha but were very disappointed with the condo.

Owner's Response: We totally agree that the condo needs updating; the items in it are 5 years old.... as a matter of fact, new furniture items were added/replaced as soon as you checked out. We are selling this condo at the end of the month (at a discounted price compared to the newly renovated ones) and don't want to do fancy upgrades as we wont get the money back out of it....we decided to sell at a lower price and let the new owners remodel to their taste. The condo DOES look exactly like the photos, and the discounted rental price reflects it ( the upgraded ones are up to $1000 more per month than you paid). I'm sad that you didn't call our on-island contact to ask for new pillows or anything else you needed----- she lives right down the block, she could have brought you those items easily!

Literally right on the beach

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed in oceanfront hotels before, but the view from the bedroom here was like an eternity pool of sand & sea. The beautiful private beach was great for both playing in the waves or snorkeling with the turtles. Hope was great as a host as well as a source for information of the local area for hiking , snorkeling & restaurants. The condo was fully stocked & clean. There was snorkel gear, towels & even a beach umbrella. Sleeping with the patio door open, w/ a cool breeze, listening to the waves & seeing the moon out over the ocean was surreal. I'll be back!!!

4th year in a row at Makaha Beach Cabanas

  • 4 of 5

Few years ago we decided to spend the month of February at Makaha Beach Cabanas. This was such a success that we are now planning for the 5th year in a row to stay there. We love the beach, the waves, sounds of the ocean at night and that this is far away from the typical tourist areas.

We found heaven at The Makaha Beach Cabanas

  • 5 of 5


Our stay at the Makaha Beach Cabanas was wonderful! Hope was there to greet us and made us feel at home.

The unit was just the right amount of space for the two of us. It's bright, clean, quiet, well maintained, and fully loaded. So all you need to bring is you bathing suit! The best part is it overlooks the ocean-- it's so close, you fall asleep listening to the sound of waves hitting the shore. Every night we ate dinner on the balcony table and watched the sun set. It was so perfect, we felt like we were in a movie. The beach is big and sandy, the water is incredible, and it's never crowded. The apartment building is inhabited by both locals and tourist alike for a nice mix. The locals are very nice.

If you're like us and don't want to rent a car, fear not because transit rocks. There's a bus stop a minute walk away from the complex and buses run every 12 minutes or so.

They've also got 24 hour security, which made us feel even safer.

In my opinion, Makaha is the best place to vacation in Oahu and Hope is the best person to stay with.

It's not overly crowded and full of tourists like Honolulu is.

Needless to say, our trip was nothing short of perfect.

Great vacation!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this condo for a month in February, 2012. The condo was exactly as shown on the photographs we saw. The condo had everything we needed for our stay and was well equipped with beach chairs,snorkel equipment, beach umbrella, etc.

The Ocean front location was excellent. The beach was awesome, just out the door and you're on the beach! The lanai was great and we ate all of our meals there, watching the ocean and the gorgeous sunsets. It was nice to have binoculars to view the whales. We saw a family of whales one day.... awesome! This condo was a great "home base" for exporing the Island. A rental car is definitely a must for this area. Security at the complex was excellent and they were very friendly and helpful.

Hope came by to meet us and it was lovely talking with her. She gave us lots of information about what to do on the Island and also told us how to get to the "special beach" (Ssshh ...we don't want too many people to know about this!) where the turtles come out of the water and snooze on the beach. It was totally awesome to see that!

We had a great time...

Mahalo Hope and Mike for letting us stay in your condo.

Had a really nice time!! We will be back!!

  • 5 of 5

Aloha Hope & Michael from British Columbia! We just wanted to say what a really nice time we had staying at your condo for a week from Nov 3 to 10, 2011. The condo was exactly as depicted on the website and in pictures (such a relief!). Hope was there to greet us and make us feel comfortable! It was clean, safe (having the extra advantage of security is super!), quiet (loved the 10 PM curfew), and easy to find. The beach was BEAUTIFUL, the water fantastic, it was hardly inhabited and very very clean. The locals were also friendly. It's not a touristy side of Oahu but that is exactly what we were looking for. If you rent a car, it is very easy to navigate the Island and head out to see the sights and get back in time to enjoy the beach and a beautiful sunset. We enjoyed seeing the turtles swimming by as well as going to that secret special spot where the turtles actually come up on the beach in the afternoons to snooze. We never encountered a single issue with anything. We will definitely be back, it was heaven and we miss it already!! We will also be recommending your place to our friends and family. Mahola again Hope for all your extra work on our behalf!!
