About Michael (Mike) Hand, PhD

We are not native Hawaiian, but we LOVE coming to Hawaii and have done so for 25 years. Brenda and I live in Oklahoma City (Go Sooners! AND Thunder Up!). We have been married for 47 years in September. We are blessed with 3 adult children and 7 grandchildren. Interestingly, we met in college. I managed to earn 3 degrees in my life, a BA, Masters, and Ph.D. in Leadership. That one came late in life and I would recommend doing it and NOT let age be a deterrent. :)

I am an ordained minister in the Southern Baptist Convention and work for one of the SBC entities. Brenda taught school for many years when our children were younger. Most recently she has gone back to work at the same school where she taught and is the receptionist. We would love for you to enjoy our home and enjoy that 'dream vacation', honeymoon excursion, first trip or multiple trip to Oahu.

Michael (Mike) Hand, PhD purchased this condo in 2014

Why Michael (Mike) Hand, PhD chose Mākaha Valley

We have been coming to Oahu and Makaha since 1990. We really do not get away much other than coming here. There is much to see if this is your first visit to the island. However, if this is not your first time you could not pick a better place to just relax, enjoy the sun, and read a good book. We have talked about buying a condo for several years and 2014 became the year of reality. We are looking forward to being here for many more years. We have furnished it the way we want it to be and NOT look like just a typical 'vacation rental'. You will find pictures of our family and other personalized things. The furnishings are NEW and of high quality. Makaha will make you want to own your own, I can promise. I can also promise you will not be disappointed with your choice of rental when you rent from The Hand's.

What makes this condo unique

We looked at several condos at MVT and some were eliminated simply because of a poor view. Looking out our bedroom or living room full glass windows is the perfect view of the mountains, valley, and ocean. Look at the pictures and see for yourself.

Mikes condo was the perfect place for us to stay on Oahu.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time on Oahu. When we decided to stay in the Makaha Valley Towers, I was able to talk to Mike directly on the phone. He explained everything very clear and it helped make our stay wonderful, he gave me some great point of interest ideas as we had never been on the island before.

We explored pretty much the whole island and returning home each evening to Mikes condo was great. It felt very comfortable like home instead of a hotel.

I would recommend this condo for a great time on Oahu.

Friendly and responsive owner, very worthy for the one bedroom condo apartment.

  • 5 of 5

Clean and comfortable one bedroom condo apartment, enough room(s) space to accommodate a family of four, excellent kitchen condition, and air condition system for summer season. Enjoyed beach view from the balcony. Equally friendly Makaha Valley Office staff, appreciated the location (although a bit far from island tourist attractions) settings and atmosphere. Overall no compliant for the money spent. Hope you could add one more beach chair, from current 3 to 4. Thanks and Best Regards.

Awesome condo experience

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved this property. The location was exactly what we wanted, more quiet and away from the tourist packed Honolulu but just a short drive if we wanted to be in the city. The property itself was very clean and the owner was very accomodating. The guidance and instructions that are provided were very helpful in preparing to arrive to the condo. Overall it was a great experience and I look forward to staying here my next visit to the island!

recent stay in Makaha

  • 4 of 5

Condo was very nice, everything in excellent condition, except 3 of the 4 the boogie boards were broken. The pool was great, bigger than most. No gym or games room though. Security is very high. Not much to do in this part of Oahu. Makaha beach is lovely but it was a long drive to other activities that we wanted to do.
