About Michelle Hoffman Lawhead

Grew up in N. Calif. We are avid scuba divers. Have traveled to many Countries but still can't beat the fresh air, clean un-crowded Beaches & Ocean here in Makaha. Been visiting Makaha for 30 years and have fallen in love with it's beauty. Bob's folks bought their condo here 42 years ago. We felt it was time to set up our roots here as well. We presently reside in N. Calif. but spend several months a year visiting Beautiful Makaha. We hope you enjoy our home away from home..!

We love the local layed back feeling. We enjoy scuba diving & snorkeling right off the Waianae coast, as well as all the hikes & uncrowded beaches.

Remember this is not Honolulu..! come to relax..enjoy the ocean & un crowded beaches. You will return home a new person.

It is highly unlikely that we would recommend this accommodation to anyone!

  • 1 of 5

2 days before leaving home and a week before we were due to arrive we had to email a specific request for the access details to the property.

We were told security would be aware of our arrival so we wouldn’t have any problems checking in.

Security staff were not aware of our booking.

After numerous calls by Security and the Office and 2 hours after our check in time the “on property contact” (Ashlee) turned up and completed the necessary documentation.

We were also given the wrong Lock Box code. After closing time (5pm) the office called Ashlee again.

In the days before our arrival, much of the scrub surrounding the building had been burned off. Soot and ash that had been blown around by the wind from approaching Hurricane Lane.

When we finally gained access to the Condo, everything was covered in soot. We found ourselves having to vacuum before moving in. If Ashlee lives in the same building and was aware of our arrival details, why wasn’t this done before we arrived?

The next issue, the TV and Internet were not working! The office was now closed. So, Security staff tried to contact Ashlee. Ashlee did not respond to this issue!

Our first night was spent cleaning the Condo, with Hurricane Lane looming and without TV or Internet.

The next morning, in sheer frustration, I had no choice but to disconnect and reconnect all the cables on the modem, router, sound bar and TV. I was able to get the internet working and 20 minutes later the TV suddenly came to life!

We vacuumed the Condo twice in 3 days. After 15 minutes walking on the Condo floors, not the lanai, our feet were filthy, even after vacuuming. We have noted in the comment book in the Condo, the owner really needs to have the carpets deep cleaned before the next visitors arrive.

Another issue we found was that we had to get a new parking pass every day. Normally guests pay a $50 cash deposit for a parking pass but because we would be leaving before the Office would open on the Monday morning, that wouldn't work for us.

Due to the unreliability of the owners, the remote location and the over-zealous rules of the Building Owners’ Corporation as well as the above stated issues, we are certain we would NOT recommend this Condo to any future guests.

A little piece of paradise

  • 4 of 5

The unit was very clean and cozy and the view of the valley and ocean were fabulous. The pool was great with Weber barbecues at our disposal. Both Ashlee and Bonnie were very accommodating with helpful suggestions for site seeing and dining. We would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this condo. It was easy to get to, and located far enough from the city, but close enough to drive into Waikiki. Also easy to get to the North Shore where we went to Shark's Cove from some fantastic snorkeling! Communication and instructions were excellent. The condo is also very well equipped. Would return!

Quiet, comfortable !!

A good place away from the hustle and bustle of Wakiki only if you don't mind the driving and traffic. Easy check in. Great base camp for swimming and suntanning. Will definitely return.

The condo was beautifully appointed and very homey with up-scale, modern finishes and appliances. The property was beautiful and well-maintained with fantastic landscaping, a lovely pool and bar-b-que. The security and office staff were friendly and helpful. We arrived to a welcome gift and a clean condo, which looked just like the photos. The stay couldn't have been better. We absolutely loved it!
