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 Hawaii

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.

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.

A Quiet Retreat in A Clean & Friendly Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Overall a beautiful, quiet and friendly atmosphere. The staff are all courteous and always sporting a happy smile.

The condo unit itself is well-maintained and clean. Plenty of parking spaces either at the front or back of the building. The windows look out to a nice panorama of the mountains nearby. While we did not use the kitchen, there was plenty of cooking pots and pans and utensils to prepare a meal. Food markets and coffee places are conveniently less than 2 miles away. There's a new Korean place Sushi & Kalbi Mart that serves about the most authentic popular staple food that had us coming back 3 times in our 5 day stay!

While the condo is a little bit of drive (1.8 miles) from the busier streets, I guess it's all worth the driving because you are entering a secluded neighborhood that is serene and closer to nature. The condo is also close to some body of waters but we didn't get a chance to enjoy it because of our frequent trips to the North Shore area.

Would I recommend this place? Absolutely! We chose this place even we have to travel to the North Shore (1 hr & 1/2) area everyday while we were there.

And oh, I almost forgot to mention that one of the roaming pretty peacocks flew atop of the tree on our last day as if to say goodbye to us....we heard what sounds like a bird calling consistently that I have to check what going on outside...what a sight, never seen anything like it, the bird was about 30 ft from our balcony, took quite a number of pictures.

Lastly, THANK YOU a lot to the very prompt and accommodating owners Mike & Brenda Hand for letting us stay in their unit.

Vantage, Vista and Value

  • 4 of 5

We have had a really nice stay. The condo was a great fit for us in many ways. We enjoyed having a kitchen. Location is great. The "tourist tips" provided in the info sheets were excellent resources. Plus the balcony was a wonderful vantage point. Staff were very welcoming. We liked the peacocks. What a fantastic little oasis the pool area is. There is a really nice beach close by.
