About The Owners: We are from Oregon. We love our Ocean, but prefer more sun. After visiting Hawaii several times, we discovered how invigorated we were by the Sunny Leeward side of Oahu. The surf at Makaha Beach can be calm and fun place to play or have dangerous waves that are so interesting to watch as surfers brave the immense waves. Recently, we tried Paddle Boarding at Po'Kai Beach while turtles and dolphins played right next to the surf board. We have many hikes and bicycle rides left to do in the Makaha area. We love the Saturday Morning Market (get there early), pick up fresh vegetables, fish for dinner, and coffee for breakfast . The Waianae Area feels like old Hawaii. We hope you will enjoy Makaha Valley Plantation as much as we do! Mark and Christina, Eugene, Oregon.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:

We enjoy Swimming in the pool and watching the Kids play. In the evening we relax under a clear star-lit sky in the Jacuzzi. I love to Sit and Read and Watch the Peacocks, ducks, and many different birds and wildlife. We have spent many hours snorkeling off the reef at Makaha Beach and the little turtle beach at Aki Cove. Saturday evening you find at least 2 venues for live music nearby. Our relatives have enjoyed swimming with the dolphins at Makua Beach.

About Christina-email/phone

We love our beautiful Coastline in Oregon, but feel more invigorated with Hawaii's winter sun. The surf at Makaha Beach can be calm and fun to play in the waves or dangerous and interesting to watch surfers braving the immense winter surf. Recently, we tried Paddle Boarding at Po'kai Beach while turtles and dolphins played right next to the surfboard. We have many hikes and bicycle rides left to do in the Waianae area. We love the Saturday Morning Market. It feels like old Hawaii. We hope you will enjoy Makaha Valley Plantation as much as we do! Mark and Christina, Eugene, Oregon

Christina-email/phone purchased this condo in 2011

Why Christina-email/phone chose Mākaha Valley

We wanted to be 'off the beaten path' love the History of Hawaii and many beautiful beaches. We had spent time in a small village south of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico but we found that there were too many obstacles to really get to know the people and the culture. Living in Makaha, life is pretty quiet but you can still get into a huge city within 1 hour if you want more excitement and world class dining. We find the availability of fresh local fish, poke, fruit and vegetables to enhances our diet. The hiking, biking, SUP, snorkeling are excellent. We have owned our condo since February 2011 and have made many friends at the Makaha Valley Plantation. People are very open and friendly.

What makes this condo unique

We immediately fell in love with the view from our condo and impulsively purchased it. Having close access to unusual hiking and water sports nearby has been ideal. We are so happy that we can meet other interesting travelers from around the world in the Jacuzzi's on property. I love the Peacocks and wildlife on the well manicured lawns that make this property unique.

Great Property

  • 5 of 5

The property was more than we expected. Everything we needed was there. It is located away from the hub of city life yet still close enough to go and enjoy. We spent time at the beaches, Polynesian cultural center (a must see), hiked diamond head. We would recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Thank you for writing a review. It is wonderful to know that you had a wonderful stay. It is critical that potential guests know how lovely Oahu and the Makaha area in particular are. We have tried very hard to outfit our condo to meet our guests needs. Mahalo, Christina

Clean and comfortable with an excellent view! Perfect for four adults. We plan to return.

  • 5 of 5

The property was easy to find even at night due to the detailed instructions given by the owner. When we arrived the condo was exactly as shown in the pictures. We felt very comfortable staying there. Makaha is one of the best kept secrets. Beautiful beaches, friendly locals and no crowds! The wildlife was awesome. We even saw sea turtles on a secluded little beach in the middle of a residential neighborhood, thanks to the owner’s tip on how to find it. We found great local cafes and restaurants. By the time we left we felt very at home and wanted to stay longer. We will return! I would recommend this property to anyone that wants to not put up with the crowds.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your quick response. I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay in Makaha and visited the turtles. This is not a rare occurrence, there are often as many as 5 big ones. Makaha is located on the northwest shore of the leeward side. Further on there is almost no development with beautiful uncrowded beaches. I look forward to seeing you again in the future.
