About Tracie

We purchased this condo at the gorgeous Makaha Valley Towers complex so we would have a place to go to get away from the rigors of our businesses in Oregon that was quiet, relaxing, beautiful and where we could simply unwind.

Tracie purchased this condo in 2013

Why Tracie chose Mākaha Valley

We chose the Makaha Valley Towers because of the beautiful location away from the hustle and bustle of downtown, the stunning grounds, the quiet and peaceful serenity of the area, the locals that make it so special and the jaw dropping views of the ocean and mountains with brilliant sunsets that can be seen from the floor to ceiling wall to wall windows.

What makes this condo unique

What we love about our Condo In The Sky is the large 'PRIVATE' lanai, the open spacious beautiful living space of 590' and the high floor stunning panoramic views of both the mountains and the ocean. If you enjoy eating outdoors while enjoying breathtaking views and the lovely Hawaiian sunsets, our Condo In The Sky would be the perfect choice! The studio condos are the favorite rentals because of the openness and the lanais.

Peaceful and beautiful grounds, 24 hour security, and peacocks roaming freely, make this property so amazing! The waterfalls right outside your front door after a lot a rain is spectacular! The most beautiful beaches on the island are less than 1 mile from this condo! Views, views and more views from the floor to ceiling wall to wall windows!

This will be your BEST vacation ever as you experience the Aloha Spirit of our Condo In The Sky at the Makaha Valley Towers.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Buck & Tracie,

Thank you so much for sharing this amazing place. We enjoyed peace and quiet mornings on the balcony and comfortable evenings after a busy day. This is exactly what my wife and I were looking for. Away from our busy lives in N.Y.C. and away from everything. We were here for 5 days and enjoyed quiet mornings at Ko'Olina beach, Hanauma Bay and an amazing view from Diamond Head. Thank you again for this wonderful place.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5


I'll start with the things that might be a dealbreaker for folks:

- This place is about 45 minutes from Honolulu. If you want to do tours there every day, it's very inconvenient. I had reservations for the King's Luau - 1 hour and 15 minutes each way.

- You can get from the loading zone to the condo with no stairs. But to get to/from the visitors parking or to the pool, there are at least 3 flights of stairs.

- This is a non-smoking facility. The only smoking area is by the grilling area. (Which is unpleasant for us non-smokers trying to cook on a grill.)

- If a bad neighbor smokes, the stench comes through the vents. There's some air freshener in the room, but you're going to suffer for about 30 minutes 3 times per day. (FYI, I never figured out which apartment was smoking to report them. I *THINK* it was 1611.)

- The pool receives more shade than sun. If you're planning to work on your tan, you're better off at the beach. This building is nestled up against a tall mountain, which is charming, but the clouds gather over the mountains, putting the pool in the shade for most of the afternoon. Your best chance for sunning by the pool is in the morning after about 8:30. And again, plan for 3 flights of stairs to get to the pool.


The condo is cozy and feels like home. It's decorated well and the bed and recliners are very comfortable. The kitchen is small and doesn't have a dishwasher, but is fully stocked for cooking. You only need to bring food. The condo has condiments, spices, cooking oils, aluminum foil, saran wrap, zipper bags, cooking utensils, etc. The bathroom is similarly stocked. As are the beach supplies, including beach towels and umbrellas. It feels like you're staying at your friend's house while they're away.

The condo was very clean, neat, and comfortable. I would definitely go there again, and am hesitant to give too good of a review because it'll be booked when I want to go again.


The only improvements I would recommend to Tracie are:

1. The tub is a little slippery. It would be great if you could add some non-stick decals.

2. There was no outlet near the bed for those of us who use a phone as an alarm. I had to remove the bolster, unplug a side lamp and plug into the extension cord under the bed. If you could run a cord to one or both of the side tables, that would be great.

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary! The condo was just like it showed. Everything was neat and clean. Everything you would need at home. We especially enjoyed the location within the mountains. Makaha beach was the spot to be to relax in the sun. We hiked the trail to the water tower daily as well as hiked Keana point. The lagoons at the Aulani Resort were a great spot. The North Shore in Haleiwa was a quaint little town great food and shopping. Love the Aloha Stadium swap meet too. The BBQ and the pool area at the towers are a great place to unwind after a busy day at the beaches. The staff at the towers kept the facility safe and secure and the people were very nice there. The west side definitely has the best beaches. This was our 2nd time at the towers and we will definitely return again.

I would recommend this place to anyone going to Oahu. It was a bit far from the center of things but not so far to hinder getting around. The area was beautiful and the grounds well maintained. Wonderful experience.

The beautiful western shores and majestic Wai'anae mountain range of Oahu beckon. This is the leeward, drier side of the island and you will enjoy what Hawaii used to be without the crowds. Here you will still find the laid back 'local Hawaiians' who speak in Pidgin English. Away from the hustle and bustle, here at the 'Towers' you will enjoy the quiet, peaceful serenity, jaw dropping panoramic views, the peacocks that roam the property, wild baby billy goats that wander around the mountains right outside your front door, brilliant sunsets and every once in a while a triple rainbow that truly makes you never want to leave.

The 'Towers' in beautiful Wai'anae is without a doubt Oahu’s best kept secret! Less than 1 mile from this condo is the world famous Makaha Surfing Beach. There you may see large protected Hawaiian Sea Turtles and/or huge endangered Monk Seals. This beach is perfect for sunbathing, swimming, snorkeling and surfing in the winter. Just up the road is stunning Yokohama Bay and Ka’ena Point. Makaha Valley Country Club is a world class Championship golf course and is literally at your doorstep, with another opening soon. The Wai'anae Marina is less than 5 miles from the condo which offers tour boats for snorkeling and swimming with the Dolphins and even Whale watching and spotting Humpbacks during the winter months.

A local place that we love is the Army Rest Camp, which is open to the public. It is situated right on the beach with a patio that overlooks the ocean while enjoying 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. Enjoy breathtaking views of Pokai Bay and sunsets while enjoying your dinner. Nearby is Pokai Bay where you can swim with ‘Charlie’, who is the resident Hawaiian Sea Turtle.

Nearby snorkeling, SCUBA diving, para-sailing, boating, fishing, sailing, boating, surfing, SUPing, windsurfing, scenic island drives and guided activities available, including whale watching and dolphin swims.

Wai'anae Boat Harbor, Championship golf course, world renown Makaha Surfing Beach, Longs Drugs, Tamura's Supermarket, Longs Drugs, McDonalds, Taco Bell and Kentucky Fried Chicken are all within 5 minutes.

Only 11 miles south you will find Ko'Olina Resort and Marina, 4 protected shallow swimming ocean lagoons which are great for snorkeling, 2 Wedding Chapels, and the Paradise Cove Luau located by the 'Aulani' Disney World Resort. We think it is the best on the island. You will also find Roy's, Longboards, Just Tacos & Monkey Pod Restaurants.

Further south is Kapolei where you will find Costco, Safeway, Wal-Mart, K-Mart, Target, Ross, Sports Authority, restaurants, a movie theater, Wet & Wild Water Park and many other shopping conveniences. Then, last but not least, about 40 minutes from the condo are the Waikele Premium Outlets. If you love to shop, this is the area!

Drive to Polynesian Cultural Center, Hanauma Bay, Pearl Harbor, Honolulu/Waikiki, Waikele Premium Outlets, 16 plex movie theatre, Dole Plantation in Kunia, and a nice drive to north shore Haleiwa.

At the end of your busy day of being out and about, you will truly appreciate returning to the peace, quiet and serenity of the Condo In The Sky in beautiful Makaha.

PLEASE NOTE: 'Condo In The Sky' is 45 MINUTES WEST OF THE AIRPORT and 1 HOUR WEST OF WAIKIKI/HONOLULU on the Leeward Coast of Oahu.

Make this your BEST vacation ever as you experience the Aloha Spirit of our Condo In The Sky!
