Property description

This gated condominium IS undeniably a beachfront DREAM! Off the beaten path, roughly 30 miles west from the Honolulu International Airport, the Makaha Beach Cabanas boasts unparalleled oceanfront accommodations that are literally ON Papaoneone (pah-pah-ohnay-ohnay) Beach, or as the locals refer to it, 'Turtle Beach.' Bedrooms are oceanside, while entryways are mountainside.

Our unit is located on the ground floor which is MOST CONVENIENT. No elevator to catch, come and go as you please with minimal fuss. The sand and beach are straight out our back sliding door where breathtaking sunsets await you nightly.

Accommodations include a fully furnished unit with a complete kitchen and a standard size refrigerator/freezer. The bedroom comes with a queen size bed, while the living area has a 'click-clack futon' which effortlessly folds out into a full size bed for additional occupants. Comfortably accommodates up to 4 adults. Both the living area and bedroom come equipped with flat screen televisions and standard cable. Complimentary Wi-Fi is also available, as we understand your need to 'stay in touch' with reality whilst living in a dream.

Not to worry, towels and linens are plentiful while the on-site 24 hour coin-operated laundromat comes in pretty handy with all the salty clothing and damp towels you'll find that you quickly accumulate. You'll also find two BBQ grills and the communal beach shower quite convenient, as well.

Sneaking out on the lanai or having a seat on the sand without disturbing anyone for your morning 'cup of joe' is so easily accessible from our ground floor unit in those wee hours of the morning. Simply slide the door open and you are right there. Time to get lost in thought on a tranquil morning. Enjoy some or all of your meals indoors or out on the lanai as the view mesmerizes you. Sunsets will become part of your daily routine during your stay as they are breathtakingly beautiful and will likely be the highlight of your every evening. Our collection of photos does little justice to the 'real thing' but we've tried our best to capture it all through a camera's lens.

Location

30 Miles
Nearest Airport
Honolulu International Airport
Mākaha, HI, USA
Nearest Beach
Turtle Beach

Car: Recommended

Makaha is located approximately 30 miles west from the Honolulu International Airport. It is 'off the beaten path' and is not considered to be a resort town. It is in fact, quite rural and this is very much a part of its' charm. If you are looking to 'get away from it all' and not quite into the busy tourist-y scene then Makaha might be right up your alley. The beaches on the west side of the O'ahu are gems with their clearer, cleaner, and bluer waters than any other part of the island. They are also less crowded.

On your way into Makaha you will pass 'Kapolei' which includes Costco, Target, and Safeway among its' wide variety of other stores and restaurants. Additionally, about 3 miles further west is the Ko'olina Resort area where you will find more shops, restaurants and beaches or in Ko'olina's case, 'lagoons.' The Lagoons are lovely, but I should forewarn you that parking can be VERY difficult on afternoons and weekends as it is very limited. There is also a water park--Wet n' Wild Hawaii--in the Kapolei area if you've got children in tow who might prefer to opt out from the beach for a day during your stay.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: I grew up in Makaha. Having moved away after school, I have grown to truly appreciate its' beauty. Most of my youthful days were spent at the beach with the neighborhood children, where we would pack a lunch and spend hours at a time. So, it's no surprise that years later I've come full circle and have re-discovered my 'stomping grounds.' I love Makaha and Turtle Beach! My husband, a Pennsylvania transplant, has also grown to love the islands as much as I do. As someone who travels the world for a living, I can honestly say, not many other beaches can compare. Home is truly where the heart is.

Why the Owner Chose Mākaha, HI, USA:
Two words: Turtle Beach. It is the epitome of paradise to me and the closest to private as one can get, as NO beach is privately owned in Hawaii. Virtually unpopulated on any given day, a crowded or busy day will typically garner roughly 25-30 people. A slow day? Just YOU. Or no one at all.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Surrounded by single-family homes together with The Hawaiian Princess next door, Turtle Beach is primarily utilized by its' immediate inhabitants. The lack of available public parking conveniently acts as 'crowd control.' Hence, Turtle Beach might just be the BEST beach on our island.
