About Clark/Ana Abbey

A little bit about us: Clark and Ana Abbey are Native Hawaiians from the Island of Oahu. Ana and I are raised and reside in Kaneohe Bay where we have 3 children. You can consider our family to be rich in the ocean culture. Canoe paddling, surfing, paddle boarding, SUP racing and working hard. We love Makaha and respect its culture and pristine beauty. We welcome all our guests that stay here and hope you enjoy the beauty that is Makaha, the last true gem of Oahu. The waves in the Winter time is unparalleled, from its calm tamed 2 to 3 foot inside break to its majestic big wave line up. There is no right hand break that can be absolutely perfect in all heights. Clark loves to surf big Makaha and has planted himself in the line up when it gets giant. Ana is an avid canoe paddler that has embraced the paddling culture.

Clark/Ana Abbey purchased this condo in 2003

Lovely ocean front unit

  • 5 of 5

It's a ground floor unit with both front and back yard, and nice ocean view, quite relaxing ambient. The Murphy bed is especially convenient which can be put up during the day for more space in the room while there is a Hawaiian bed for naps. Owner is very responsive and helpful.

Worth the extra drive

  • 4 of 5

As you drive along the ocean beach after beach until to see the condo you find yourself wanting to stop repeatedly to stop and go for a swim or surf if you surf. Once you arrive at the condo it is dated but with the beauty of the background and the water you quickly forget about the age of the condo and begin to feel at home. The owner was great to deal with the staff where fantastic. If you are looking to be away from the hustle and bustle of waikiki this is the place for you. You can relax or choose to go on many hikes right out your door.

Perfect spot away from the city

  • 4 of 5

This location couldn't have been more perfect. We stayed the first few nights in Waikiki and couldn't wait to get out of th city. The condo is located in an area were the locals live and far away from the hussle and bustle of the city. The condo was small, but perfect size for my mom and I. We spent most of the time out sunbathing on the lanai watching the surfers, birds and geckos. Having an ocean view and only being steps away from the water was the best part. The grounds are well maintained with security. Having our own parking stall was also a great plus. The pool was heated to a nice comfortable level. Th condo had everything we needed: dishes, cleaning supplies, toiletries, blankets, pillows, towels, spices, fans, hair dryer, first aid, boogie boards and snorkel gear! If I come back to Oahu, I will skip Waikiki and stay at Makaha shores again! Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Great place for the value!!

  • 4 of 5

This unit was comfortable and easy to get to. Unloading your car from your parking space was steps away. The owner was extremely responsive and friendly. Access to the beach was mere steps away. The shore breezes kept it cool (along with the ceiling fan). The granite counter tops were a nice touch. The pool and grounds were exceptionally maintained. The unit could use some updating in spots. We brought consumables like TP and paper products. The unit is fairly well apportioned with cooking utensils but we were glad we brought cups and other things. Great furniture on the lanai. Table and chairs with an umbrella as well as lounge chairs.

An inexpensive and comfortable stay close to a great surfing beach!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our little home by the beach while here to visit our son and his wife. Sleeping to the sound of the surf was nice. The sun woke us up in the morning. Opening the doors to the beach and the louvers to the kitchen door allowed a nice breeze to air the place out. Everything was clean and all that we needed was provided (except food, of course). It was a nice place to fall asleep after long, busy days kept full by our daughter-in-law. Parking was close by in the garage, though if we hadn't had a compact car, it would have been difficult to park. Staff was friendly. Thank you for an awesome stay!
