About Sandy Palmgren

We purchased this condo as a second unit at the makaha valley towers after purchasing one for our personal use. We enjoy our retreats to makaha valley towers from our business in Texas so much, that we knew other people would like to stay here as well! We are originally from the Midwest and currently live in Texas, but our hearts are always in Hawaii. We have 2 grown daughters that enjoy joining us here whenever their schedules allow.

Sandy Palmgren purchased this condo in 2012

Why Sandy Palmgren chose Mākaha Valley

We chose the makaha valley towers because of the serenity of the area. While some people may enjoy the hustle and bustle of Waikiki, we prefer the quiet seclusion this area offers. We like that we can drive into Honolulu if we choose to do so, but we prefer the relaxing lifestyle of this community. We enjoy the beautiful oceanfront drives and all of the activities this area offers.

What makes this condo unique

The property is beautifully maintained and the peacocks which roam the grounds are incredible! We get so excited when it rains as we look forward to the possibility of seeing the amazing waterfalls that are located right outside our front door. The beaches in this area are the most beautiful and secluded on the island. We love sitting on the beach and suddenly a whale will spout or surface in the distance. We also enjoy watching the stingrays as they coral their babies and the sea turtles as they drift along with the tides.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from a fantastic vacation in Hawaii. Our stay at the Makaha Valley Tower was equally fantastic. We were welcomed by the "A loha" sign hanging on the front door and entered a clean, well-m aintained condo. It was everything we had read on the VRBO website. Since we arrived at night, we were treated to a breathtaking view of Makaha valley with the blue Pacific ocean in the background when the curtains were opened the next morning... and outside the front door, the lava rock mountain wall starred us in the face. The fragrant smell of the lauwa'e fern and plumeria flowers there on the grounds of the condo greeted us everytime we left and when we returned. Beautiful white sandy beaches were at our disposal up and down the Leeward coast with hardly anyone there. If all of this is what you are looking for, then this is it! No parking fees (except for a small deposit, which you'll get back), and a friendly office and security staff. Mahalo Sandy for allowing us to stay in your wonderful home. It's been truly a "home away from home" for us.

Quiet and Comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Makaha Valley Towers. The property sits in an incredible spot between the mountains and the sea. No matter which way you look it is breathtaking. The gate guards were very friendly as was the office staff. We loved seeing the peacocks but weren't a big fan of the rooster. He woke us up more than once at 3:30 am. The pool is great and we loved the BBQ grills and used those almost every day.

The bed was very comfortable. The kitchen was well supplied but some of the dishes are missing and others are cracked. One of the chairs is broken and the snorkeling equipment has seen better days. There were plenty of towels and a great size bathroom. The wifi and cable tv were super. We appreciated the laundry facilities and they worked great.

We found a local grocery store with reasonable prices and a farmer's market on Saturday. We drove to the North Shore, Haunamu Bay and the Dole Plantation. We spent the majority of our time at Makaha Beach at the end of Kili Drive. We watched the snorkelers, surfers, fishermen, and locals. We took our coffee there in the morning, went back after breakfast and enjoyed the beach and water and then went after lunch to sit and wait for the spectacular sunsets.

We noticed tour boats arrive every morning and swam out there and saw several sea turtles. Twice we were rewarded with spinner dolphins just off shore. The color of the water was incredible.

We definitely plan to return to Makaha Valley.

Nice condo.

  • 2 of 5

The pictures that was displayed aren't very accurate. I couldn't see the pool from my ledge at all. Some of the people were friendly. The peacocks were noisy all the time. Your constantly having to drive to see and do anything, it's too far out which I don't remember reading about when I booked it. There was a cleaning fee that also was not mentioned. These condos were supposed to be non smoking but that's not true, smelled cigarette smoke a lot. Talked to the office twice. Sorry.

Owner's Response: This is the first time a guest has said that the photos are inaccurate. The only difference from the online photos and the actual condo appearance, may be that we replace the comforter when we feel they are looking worn from too many washings. The comforter in this condo had recently been replaced with a new brightly colored chevron patterned comforter which compliments the other decor. I love decorating and take pride in the way the condos always look and the comfort of our guests. Spring is mating season for the peacocks and they can become a little loud at this time of the year, but most people feel the peacocks, (even when noisy) adds to the beauty of the area. Depending upon where you want to spend the majority of your time while on Oahu, most locations can be quite a drive due to traffic. For instance, unless you stay on northshore, it will take you at least an hour to get there from Honolulu or from this side of the island. However, the majority of people that visit Oahu are on vacation and enjoy sightseeing while they travel from one destination to the next as the entire island is absolutely beautiful! This traveler questioned the cleaning fee from the very beginning. I explained to him that it was in the original quote, (I sent him a copy of the quote when he questioned it). I explained that we cannot waive the fee due to sanitary reasons, as he would not have liked it if we allowed the person prior to his vacation to say they had washed the sheets and all they had done was made the bed! This condo does not profess to have a pool view, but a BEAUTIFUL ocean and mountain view. A photo of the pool is provided, so that people can see what it looks like, but the description does not say it has a pool view. The entire property is smoke free, the only place smoking is allowed is in the barbecue area which is located outside by the pool. I have never smelled smoke while in this or any of the other condos we own on the property. However, if smoke was detected during the stay, I am happy that it was reported to the office.

Makaha Beach

This condo is located on the leeward side of the island of Oahu which receives more sunshine than many of the other parts of the island. Relax on the beach or hike the mountains, this area offers it all! Enjoy the serenity of Hawaii without the crowds. A local favorite place we enjoy is the army rest camp, which is open to the public. Relax on the patio that overlooks the ocean and enjoy a cocktail, appetizers or a meal. The rest camp even provides live entertainment weekend evenings and is located less than 5 miles from the condo.
