Waves, skies, mountains, swimmers, surfers, anglers, fishes...sea turtles!

Have a Breakfast, lunch & dinner had at lanai, it’s just like an exclusive restaurant!(no matter what I made)

The owner & residential manager were very kind &helpful.

Highly recommended! We want to go again!!

Beautiful, Relaxing & Just as Advertised

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to the West Shore of Oahu. The condo was clean & comfortable with a Million $$ view. Makaha Beach is steps away for swimming, snorkeling & surfing. The complex was very secure & clean & included laundry facilities & very nice pool area. This area is not for the typical tourist but if you have a sense of adventure & love a peaceful, less crowded environment this is for you. We checked Trip Advisor for Waianae restaurants and were able to find a few in the area we liked. We traveled all over the island planning our trips outside the busier traffic times. We definitely recommend this condo & would certainly stay again.

Outstanding view of Hawaii's Makaha Bay, Beach.

  • 5 of 5

The owner provided excellent communication via email, telephone and fax as required to facilitate our booking, our stay and our closing of a one month vacation. The unit is in the last large condo unit on the north west coast of Oahu. My husband and I found the unit more than large enough for our needs. The kitchen was recently upgraded. The queen size bed was comfortable. The balcony is exceptionally large and offers spectacular views of the waves rolling on to the shore. Daily we enjoyed our favourite beverage watchings surfers and divers. We had the opportunity to watch whales on the horizon and several times we saw dolphins jumping in the distance. Security in the building was excellent. The residential manager was helpful. Groceries were available within a three mile drive. Surf boards could be rented locally. Golf was great at Makaha Valley CC. We played through Golf Now to get discounts. The residents were a mix of local folks and vacationers. All of us enjoyed the heated salt water pool. There are a number of small local restaurants, but generally this is a quiet hidden away location. It is about an hour from Pearl City and Honolulu due to traffic conjestion on the island. However, if you want to experience the Hawaii that you have seen in old movies, then this is the place. We would recommend it highly to anyone not looking for crowds and noise. This may not be the ideal place for young adults looking for night life as it is very quiet after 9 p.m. You will definitely need a rental car. There is a bus service, known as THE BUS. The service runs regularly, but timing can be inconsistent. We managed to see the entire island by scheduling our trips around the traffic reports. Several shopping excursions were made to local malls.

We also found the dryness associated with this side of the island as an advantage to rain associated with the windward side. On the rare occasions when it did rain briefly, we could see beautiful rainbows in the valley behinds us, that led to the mountains that are only a few miles away. We hope to return at some point. The unit facilitated one of our best vacation experiences. Grab a few trip books, and plan to relax at the condo, and drive out to see the island and all its beauty.

A condo with a million dollar view

  • 5 of 5

This condo on the west shore has a view and location second to none. It is located on a prime surfing beach on the west shore. You both a great sunrise view over the mountains and sunset view over the ocean. One can sit on the lanai with a glass of wine and get a private view of the green flash at sunset. One is so close to the ocean you can hear surfers. One also has very good whale watching from the lanai. One gets sun all day long on the lanai. The condo is nicely furnished with a surfer beach cottage motiffe. It has an amply stocked kitchen with nice granite counter tops and modern appliances. The living area has comfortable tropical furniture. The bedroom has a sliding door between bedroom and living area. The lanai can be accessedm from living area or bedroom. The grounds and the pool are very well maintained. The owner goes above and beyond to make sure your condo experience is top notch. Also, another perk is that the condo has the feel of a home and not the feeling of a vacation resort. You get the feeling that you are living there rather than on just a vacation. When it is time leave you want to stay. I stayed for three months as a snowbird and signed up for four months next year. I liked the experience of living like a local such shopping in the local town and not a tourist area with inflated prices. It was close to some beautiful beaches used mainly by the local residents. This property is truly a place of paradise

Makaha Shores - Value Beyond Expectations !!!!

  • 5 of 5

This unit is amazing in its entirety , for price point , location and amenities included in the rental. If you are looking for an out of the way spot to stay on Oahu , this would be one of those. It is 45min from Waikiki in smooth traffic by car , 1hr in AM rush hour. 1 1/2 hours by city bus which there is a stop right out front of the building. The unit itself is very comfy , 1BR w/ full bathroom , decent eating area for 3 or 4 people and a nice living room. The 'lanai' is wraparound from the living area to the bedroom and is more than adequate for relaxing by the ocean which is 20ft from the balcony. Its on the 2nd Floor of the building which gives the unit a much better vantage point for viewing the water and the beach areas , especially right from bed or on the couch. Million dollar views at sunrise and sunset. The unit included boogie boards , snorkel gear , beach chairs , sun umbrellas and various other items that were used at the beach or elsewhere. Everything you need to have a great day at the beach, which is a two minute walk from the front door. The beach is PRISTINE and empty compared to other beaches in Oahu , the only people there were very friendly locals. The water is very clear , clean and undisturbed. Waves were pretty good at times , depending on swell. Snorkeling was A1 quality for beginners and novices , lots of reef fish to be seen right off shore. 200 yards out will get you to where most West Oahu snorkel tours bring their paying customers day in day out. We had dolphins out front for 5 mornings in a row and the monk seal dropped by for a rest on a few days. Money cant buy that kind of stuff. Very clean and safe saltwater pool in the complex you can use from 9am - 9pm. Laundry on first floor runs on quarters 1.25 per wash and .25 cents for a 15min dry. Parking was great , security on duty at night.Not many sit down restaurants close to the building , lots of good stuff within a 20min drive , google is your friend. Quiet , respectful neighbors as well as all the locals we encountered were nice and friendly as well. No real problems were noticed with the neighborhood as some reviews might elude to. It is a humble building and neighborhood. If you are in to glitz and glam , this is not the place for you. The owner was a great guy , is local and dealt with any issues promptly. In short , if you are a down to earth person/family looking for a great out of the way , value packed place to stay on Oahu AND you have a car , this is your place

**30 Day minimum rental required...BUT at these low rates you can book for 30 days, stay less and still save a ton of money!**. Makaha is an unspoiled paradise just an hour from Honolulu and only 25 minutes from the city of Kapolei. In the general area of Makaha and Waianae there are several dozen restaurants from fast food to casual dining (nothing is formal here). You will also find grocery stores and other shopping within 2 miles. If you want to a fancy night out the resort of Ko Olina is not far away. Golfers love the Makaha golf course that is only 2 miles away. If you have questions give me a call. Sel (808)533-0456 remember we are probably a few hours behind your time zone.
