About the property

A dream come true! Step out the lanai and onto a lovely sandy beach! If you're looking for a relaxing vacation, this is the place! Spend the day soaking up the sun or playing in the waves.

About Susan

My husband and I live in Alaska, so being able to get away to Hawaii in the winter is a necessity! We have 2 young boys, who love playing at the beach.

Susan purchased this condo in 2011

Why Susan chose Mākaha

My husband and I fell in love with this location when we rented a unit in this building. Lucky for us, this one was for sale and we bought it and completely renovated it in 2011. We are so excited to be able to share this special place with others. It's a great place to come and unwind.

What makes this condo unique

This place is an hour drive from the hustle and crowds of Waikiki. If you're looking for nightlife and crowded streets, this is not the place for you. It's very low key and local. It's perfect to wake up with the sun and take an early morning walk along the beach each morning! Just open your lanai door and go! No big planning or packing for the beach each day. Just walk out your door with your towel and you are there!

Beautiful Comfortable-We already booked another stay!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a great two month stay here. The unit was perfect! The condo was very comfortable, spacious, clean and full of amenities. The owner has seriously thought of everything, there were beach chairs, snorkels, boogie boards, beach toys, and the kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need. The lanai was enjoyed in the mornings and evenings and we loved listening to the ocean and watching the whales. We have already arranged to stay for three months next year! The owners are great to work with and we could not have asked for a more perfect experience!

This condo was clean, no bugs. the condo is well stocked with everything you need kitchen appliances, lots of towels, beach chairs, water toys and a very comfortable bed. We loved sitting on the beach relaxing and watching whales and turtles swimming by. We have no complaints and would highly recommend this condo.

Makaha is the best for total relaxation

  • 5 of 5

We have been to all the islands, and always come back to Makaha; it has changed over the years. The peace, quite, solitude and locals mean everything to us. There is no night life so you need to understand that; you would need to go to North Shore or Honolulu and the drive could prove stressful due to traffic. This location is for those that just want to spend time on the beach and do absolutely nothing.

During our stay, there was a power outage for 6 hours. The stars were just beautiful, it was total darkness...except for those annoying lights from the Princess next door. Hard to believe that my ancestors looked in the sky and could find their way in the vast ocean. Those homes on the beach lit their tiki-torches and it was like heaven.

We will be back...thank you so much for sharing your home and Aloha.

Loved the sounds of the ocean day and night!

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable, modern, clean, and best of all; extremely convenient being on the ground level. My kids had easy access to the beach and since we cooked most our meals, it was also convenient not having to take any elevators when hauling stuff in. Lots of convenient items at your disposal, and water toys for everyone's enjoyment.

One thing that I would have made this experience more enjoyable is having AC. Coming from a cold climate, the humid heat felt unbearable at times and very uncomfortable. There is a breeze that blows through, but when it's not blowing, the ceiling fan is blowing hot air on you. The stregth of the ceiling fan felt like it was on low although it was on the highest speed. Also take into account, this was during the month of July, so probably one of the hottest time of the year which would definitely make AC necessary! :-)

Other then that, great place to stay, easy to work with the owners and very responsive and nice.

Great Little Hide-away

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place to hide from the hustle and bustle of Oah'u!! Beach area was perfect, water was cool and clear. Enough toys in the beach chest, noodles, snorkeling gear.

The condo itself is very practical, full size fridge, when you get food, go light on the condiments, there's plenty left from previous visitors. I did visit the local stores, I'm not real picky, so I was able to find everything I needed within a couple miles of the condo.

Do watch the parking spots, the stall lines are painted a too close. If you are going to go to the Honolulu area, plan your drive around rush hour(s).

If you're needing quiet time away.... This. Is. The. Place...!!!
