My boyfriend and I chose Cheryl's place for our stay while we transitioned into moving to the island. We needed something that wasn't going to be expensive since we were looking more to be somewhere that we could save and still be able to look for work and enjoy time on the beach without the feel of the big city.

The location was perfect! Seeing the beach and smelling the ocean morning and night was awesome. I loved that we could access the beach and it was always nice and peaceful. You see a good amount of people that are regulars to the beach and are extremely friendly. I've heard a lot of bad things about the Waianae/Makaha area but this was nothing close to what we experienced staying here. The bus is right out side and pretty much can take it anywhere. I recommended this stay to all my friends and family. I'm sure I'll go back once or twice as a get away!

Beautiful cove nearby, clean pool just steps away and handy store with local hot foods. Cozy and clean condo, very attentive owners answer all questions super quick! Actually stayed through most of February.

Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5

This was my third trip to Hawai'i, second this year, and I absolutely loved Patrick and Cheryl's condo. I specifically chose to stay out of Waikiki this time around, and I'm really happy that I found this gem in Waianae. The condo had everything I needed to live comfortably for the entire month and it was close to local restaurants and grocery stores. I rented a car, but bus service appeared to be frequent in this area.

The location is amazing. Makaha beach is right down the street and the serenity of the backyard area couldn't be more perfect. You pretty much fall asleep and wake up to the sound of rolling waves...every single day. It was easy enough to get to and from any other area of the island with a car and it was nice to come home and just hang out at the backyard at the end of a long day of sightseeing. Lots of good local hikes, too. The neighbours were also quite friendly, which made me feel right at home rather than on vacation.

If given the opportunity, I would come back and rent this condo in a heartbeat. Cheryl was great with quick responses to any questions I had about the condo. Mahalo again, I will definitely be back!

Perfect place

  • 5 of 5

The place is perfect for traveler to stay either long term or short term. It is clean, safe and has everything you need for your stay. If you don't have car, there is bus station right outside the street which can take you to Waikiki Alamoana shopping center .

40th Anniversary Dream

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I had been looking forward to a Hawaiian trip for a couple of years. We decided on an anniversary trip Couldn't have been more pleased! The condo was excellent, clean and comfortable. we had a great time with the quiet and the beach. Able to explore Oahu pretty thoroughly and still have plenty of beach time. If we get a chance to return it will definitely be here!! Mahalo

I loved staying at this condo for 3 months over winter. I didn't have a car and the convenience to the bus, walking to Waianae store, library and of course the beach was fantastic. The perfect size for me being alone. My Neighbors were friendly and mostly quiet. The property is well maintained and clean. I loved the pool as well, and often was there alone, amazing given the size of the complex. Cheryl was very responsive when I had internet issues, and was very helpful. I lived in Makaha for years, selling my own condo last year, and was grateful to have this place available. I avoid Waikiki at all costs! Most of all I loved waking up to the sound of the surf right outside.
