Studio with spectacular mountain and ocean views.

We have 6 lovely units listed in Makaha. Please check each of them. If one isn't available another one may be open for the dates you desire. They are on VRBO.COM listing numbers; 719952, 719953, 614042, 640886, 781458 and 634217.If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist crowd and drive just 2 minutes to your own nearly deserted beach, look no further.

This cozy, quiet, fully-furnished, fifth-floor, studio apartment features an outstanding view of the Makaha Valley mountain range and the ocean. It's located on the leeward side (dry side) of Oahu -- on the Waianae Coast. The upper west coast of Oahu is what Hawaii used to be, a tranquil place in between the breathtaking mountains and a coastline of countless beautiful beaches.

This studio comes fully equipped with a king size murphy bed (quality mattress), newly renovated kitchen and bathroom, extra sheets and towels to make your stay comfortable and convenient. . Laundry on premises. A flat screen TV, Cable, WiFi, DVD, free parking and Central A/C is included. This unit is pristine and you will love it.

Just bring your toothbrush and bathing suit, everything else is already waiting for you!

There is a great on site pool, a large BBQ area next to it. The lanai has a spectacular panoramic view, and that's from the inside too, as there are floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall glass sliding doors for a full view virtually from anywhere in the studio!

The property is LUSH and well-groomed with birds-of-paradise, gingers, and sexy pink flowers and palm trees throughout. 24/7 security throughout including the ample parking area. Native birds and wild peacocks awaken you at sunrise with a symphony of song. From the lanai, you overlook an 18-hole golf course (Country Club is open to the public), rugged mountains, and the coastline. And it's not uncommon to catch sight of whales spouting water, just past the breakers. Social gatherings at the swimming pool and barbecue area just seem to happen almost daily.

Our Capital City of Honolulu and Waikiki Beach are just 25 miles south when you feel like a day of playing total tourist, and for your convenience, Costco, Wal Mart, Safeway Foods, theatres, beauty salons, etc are about 25 minutes in Kapolei.

Any avid Shopper's? The fantabulous Waikele Premium OUTLET MALL is just 35 minutes away! Truly a shopper's must:)

Here at Waianae you'll find an interesting mix of long-time residents and visitors from all over the world. . You are welcome to share, with us, this Paradise found somewhere over the many rainbows. We welcome you with much Aloha.

                                                              Nice Apartment and Amenities

                                                              Mike A.

                                                              The apartment was comfortable and had a picturesque view from the balcony and windows. The staff at the complex were all very welcoming, helpful and ensured us a safe environment for the week we stayed. The building's pool was also great and the apartment was stocked with beach equipment which came in handy.

                                                              The only problems we came across was that a lamp and wall sconce were not functioning and some of the hand towels had stains on them. But most importantly, there were a lot of roaches in the apartment. They were generally seen at night, primarily in the kitchen and bathroom areas. We saw them the first night we arrived and also when we would return each night from a day's outing. This hampered any plans we had of cooking in the apartment.

                                                              If not for these issues, the apartment would have been rated more than 3 stars.

                                                              Michael L.

                                                              Lovely scenic location but sticky floors and over-run by bugs

                                                              Clean, Comfy, and Convenient for Our Small Family Vacation!

                                                              Rich M.Anchorage, AK

                                                              We really enjoyed staying at the condo and found it to be a great value for our family vacation to Oahu. The sleeping arrangements fit all three of us well and had a nice large bathroom that allowed us to all get ready each morning and get on to our adventures quickly. The property has a lot of amenities including a pool, laundry, and lots of parking and we felt safe with the 24 hour staff. Makaha has a lot of appeal if you are looking to get away from the hustle/bustle of the downtown/Waikiki area, with some great local restaurants, grocery stores, etc... There are also awesome beaches within walking distance from the condo.

                                                              Definitely recommended for small families and couples looking for an affordable and enjoyable space!

                                                              Cozy studio with beautiful views!

                                                              Calene A.

                                                              clean, beautiful views, down the street from the beautiful westside beaches... the studio comfortably fit the four of us and had all the simple necessities we needed.

                                                              The only thing we had trouble with was intitially getting through the front gates because the security was so tight. We understood though because it just made the place safer.

                                                              Overall, we'd definitely stay again.

                                                              Thank you!

                                                              Very enjoyable

                                                              This condo is clean nicely decorated and very well stocked. The views are amazing . Having been to Makaha Valley Towers many times, this condo makes me return again. M.T. Alberta

                                                              Quiet and peaceful

                                                              Great place. Away from the big city noise. Had a rental car to get around in so an hour to get anyplace was no issue. No rush to hurry any where. Woke up every morning with beautiful sunshine coming over the mountain. Beach just down the road to the right of the security booth. Would definitely come back if ever back to Oahu!
