There is so much to do and see all over the island which you can easily travel in just a day. With its convenient location, you’ll be able to experience the hustle and bustle of the attractions and be back to a secluded and quiet place at the Makaha Valley Towers with all the conveniences of home to relax and unwind.

About Christine MacDermid

This condo has been in our family for many years and we have all been lucky enough to go for vacations at these towers. My husband and I now we want to share it with you. We live in Canada so heading there during our cold winter months has always been a huge plus. We now have a family with 2 young boys that we have also brought with us a couple times. Enjoying Oahu as a family was just as fun! During our recent visit we did some renovating and redecorating which we hope you will all enjoy.

Christine MacDermid purchased this condo in 2014

What makes this condo unique

Incredible views of both the mountains and the ocean. The towers are in a private area of the island, so get ready to relax and unwind where it isn’t busy.

Great condo and views

  • 4 of 5

I really enjoyed this condo for a 30 day stay. It was nice to have the mountain and ocean views from the large windows. Enjoyed reading a book in the comfy recliner. There were a few maintenance needs I told the owners about and I’m confident they will follow through. Our biggest disappointment was that the sofa bed was damaged and my daughter had to sleep on it the whole time. The owner said she was going to replace it soon, so that should be rectified for future stays. I liked being away from the Honolulu traffic and tourist vibe. My daughter enjoyed the peacocks and all ther strutting. The landscaping around the condos is beautiful and nicely maintained.The banana pancakes at Spinner’s were fantastic and we loved going to Coquito’s Latin Cuisine for dinner. Enjoyed the salt water pool, just which there weren’t so many stairs to get there as I’m getting used to have double knee replacements. All in all a good place to stay.

Owner's Response: Im really glad you enjoyed your stay! Yes, a new sofa has been ordered and I really appreciate you filling me in on it, The company wasn't able to fix it after all and I defiantly want to keep our guests as comfortable as possible. Im glad you enjoyed some local spots on the island as well!

This is our 5th time renting condos in Hawaii in the past 3 years, so we have a very good idea of what is good and what is bad.

The bad with this condo:

Arrived to find sheets on the bed that were not clean. Even found a toe/fingernail on the sheets.

Floors were not swept. Coffee maker was not cleaned, there were coffee grinds everywhere inside the coffee maker.

We changed the bed, cleaned the coffee maker, and swept the floors. Contacted the owner to let her know, she offered to have the cleaner come back but we had already done the work so there would have been nothing for her to do.

Throughout our 3 week stay here is what we found:

Original sheets were not clean, second set we tried had a big tear in them, third set had stains on them. Dining chairs have no padding left in them, they are all sunk in making them very uncomfortable to sit in...the blender is VERY old, rusty, and would barely turn when we first tried it, it did work OK once we got it going, the cord is frayed with exposed wires, and the pitcher is no longer clear.

The set of towels when we arrived were just OK, they are getting old and it shows. When we went to change them out for a fresh set we found almost all of the towels had yellow stains on them.

The back of the sofa is all cracked and you get white flakes all over you when you sit on it.

Not one sharp knife to be found. One cupboard door is almost falling off. Frying pan is useless.

Many surfaces had a lot of dust, indicating that a proper cleaning was not done prior to our arrival.

There is only 1 beach chair, only 3 beach towels, 1 beat up Styrofoam cooler. Most condos have a plastic cooler.

Based on the cleanliness of the condo we asked the owner if she would consider refunding the cleaning fee, she refused. We are not the type of people that try to get our money back when we rent, but we do expect to get what we pay for, and we did NOT arrive to a clean condo. The owner has also contradicted herself many times regarding the cleaning person, the sheets, and other things.

We have the proof from her emails/texts, as well as pictures.

We really don't know how there are so many 5 star reviews on this condo, it is apparent that the owner has not been at the condo for some time in order to deal with all these issues or perhaps it's not a priority.

The Makaha Valley Towers is very well kept, friendly staff...lovely place....would definitely return to MVT but would stay at a different condo.

Owner's Response: My apologies JoAnn, Through our communication I wish that you took us on our offer to have our cleaning lady come in and clean up any areas of your concern. We take pride in our condo and try replace anything that is not suitable for our guests. Previous guest have graciously left a few beach items for future guests to enjoy, as well as beach items quickly go missing. My best regards Christine

Great place - had everything necessary to relax.

If you are looking to do various activities around Oahu - plan an hour plus for each way.
