Car: Recommended

This is a perfect vacation retreat for those who want to enjoy Hawaiian beaches and a laid back tempo. For those who want some adventure and variety, day trips in a car to the North Shore, Waikele Outlet Shopping Malls and Honolulu reward your return to peaceful Makaha. Anyone staying out here should visit Kaena Point at least once to experience how Hawai'i must have looked like to the first Hawaiians arriving to the islands. All sorts of water activities can be done, from the beach, or the nearby harbor--fishing, snorkeling, diving, surfing, stand-up paddling, etc. Regarding dining, a trip to the Kaumana Farms with organic and vegan choices in a beautiful setting is a nice break from home cooking. There are all the usual fast foods, including a Starbucks in nearby Waianae, including a very tasty Chinese restaurant next to the 24 hour Longs Drugs store. You can also buy reasonable fresh lei from Longs.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: I'm an artist living on O'ahu, where I was born and raised. I left at 17 to study art on a scholarship in San Francisco, eventually getting my BFA from California College of Art. I've always drawn and painted and am very curious about how things work, so I also have a BS degree in IT and an MBA, having worked in systems design, technical and strategic corporate communications, most recently promoting lean philosophy and principles in sustainable business strategy in Sweden for the past 13 years. Now that I'm back, I enjoy painting, hiking, paddling, golfing, sailing and other outdoor activities. I also enjoy the variety in Hawai'i with its local foodie scene for all budget levels.

Why the Owner Chose Mākaha, HI, USA:
As someone raised on the Windward side of O'ahu, I like to say that it is the 'best' side of the island to live on and the most beautiful. But the reality is that each part has its unique, unbeatable charm. Makaha, and the West side, for me has the most beautiful deep blue of ocean and sunsets--something not possible to see in Kane'ohe. We fell in love with Makaha because we could relax in a place that reminded me of my childhood before development that has made Kane'ohe one of the largest towns on the island and it is almost always sunny and 'beach' weather, without flying to one of the Neighbor islands, yet, you can always get into your car and drive into Honolulu and experience the pulse of an international city. I find myself sitting in the apartment or on the lanai most of the day--the view, sound and smell of the ocean fills the room and is very relaxing, so for me a 'day trip' can be walking downstairs and going to the pool or walking on Makaha beach just outside the door. This is where you can catch up on all the reading you meant to during the rest of the year or write one yourself.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
This apartment building is as close to the beach you can get, compared with anything else in Makaha. My apartment, however, is on the end, facing the ocean, so you feel like you are the only one at this site. The end units look straight out onto the ocean with the reef just below in front, so it is protected from the big surf. There is a city Bus stop outside the apartment building, if you really don't want to use a car and shops in Waianae that sell and rent bikes for getting around between the Waianae and Makaha or to the other beaches. A super-sized boogie board is rented on the beach, it looks like fun for a group or family to try.
