We had a good time. Amazing location!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in Jose’s unit from January 1-30, 2018. What we most enjoyed about this unit was the fabulous view, and being right on the beach! The 4th floor was just right for viewing the beach, waves, activity, as well as watching for turtles, dolphins and whales (bring binoculars!). We opened wide the glass doors each morning, and saw something new and interesting almost every day. The sunsets were fabulous!

We were impressed with how clean the beach was. Although dogs are allowed on the beach, we never ever saw any droppings or other garbage. We always felt fine walking with bare feet along the shore.

The unit itself was adequate regarding amenities. The bed was very comfortable and the interior temperature was also just right with windows and sliding glass doors open for cross-drafts. The fridge is nice and big. The sound of the crashing surf was quite loud for us, so we wore earplugs to bed. We frequently heard neighborhood roosters and dogs barking from across the road. Fortunately the bedroom is not on that side, so it was more muffled.

Being winter, the surf was quite rough, so it was a bit tricky for swimming and snorkelling at Papaoneone beach. We enjoyed the four lagoons at Ko Olina (25 minute drive from condo), which has calm water for swimming and a nice waterfront path along the resorts. (Be there by 9:30am to get parking.)

Traffic during morning and afternoon rush hours should be avoided. A New Longs Drugs store is being built just down the road from the condo (about a 5 minute walk) so that will be very convenient in the near future.

Best place to stay in Oahu, Hawaii

  • 5 of 5

We love vacationing at the Makaha Beach Cabanas. The location is ideal. It is close to Honolulu but away from all the traffic. It is located on the sunny side of the island. It is an easy drive to all attractions and to other parts of the island. A rental car is a must, no extra charges for parking unlike at the city hotels. The price is very reasonable for what you get! The location is ideal and right on the beach, a real five star location! The condo is comfortable and well stocked with everything you need to cook or play on the beach. It is away from the tourist areas so you are living with the locals . Hawaiians are very friendly and wonderful people. We have returned to this local about eight times and plan to go again in the future. Our home away from home. Mike and Jeannine

The condo was wonderful, exactly as promised. It was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The kitchen was well appointed and we felt like we were right at home. Jose was very accommodating and provided all we needed for our days on the beach. Our neighbors, residents and guests, were friendly and welcoming. Everything was designed to make our stay in paradise exactly that...a stay in paradise. We WILL be back.

Spring Break Act II

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time my daughter and I have stayed here and we'll keep coming back as long as Jose lets us. It truly feels like home. The property can't be beat with a beautiful beach in the backyard to swim, snorkel, boogie-board, and just relax on. For the those who like to hike, there's the rocky peninsula right next door, or Ka 'ena Point State Park is about a 10 minute ride up the road. And breathtaking views are everywhere! Just open the sliding glass door, kick your feet up, and enjoy!

The only downside to the trip was the island traffic. Much of Oahu is under construction right now, so traffic was pretty heavy at times, most notably during morning or evening rush hour. We planned as many of our excursions around those times as we could, and we were fine. For those that we knew we couldn't avoid the rush hours, we just made sure we added extra driving time to the trip.

This is a clean, comfortable, lovely condo with everything one could possibly want or need for a memorable, relaxing vacation including a helpful, friendly staff. It is out of the hectic, touristy area, so everything can be enjoyed in peace and quiet. All you'll hear are the waves crashing on the beach! I've recommended this condo to my friends and family and will continue to do so again and again. So, until our next visit: Mahalo and aloha, Jose!

The North West side of the OAHU island (Waianae) offers the beauty of the real, authentic Hawaii... peaceful country people... great tasty authentic Hawaiian BBQ, Chinese Chop-suey (one of the best in the island), exquisite Ramen, and more. Beautiful secluded beach with white sand, palms and remarkable clean turquoise water. A real Hawaiian experience to never forget.
