Guestbook comments from the owner

The condo is situated in a "gated" area that is very well maintained. Very peaceful surroundings, lots of birds in the gardens. The valley plantation is between spectacular mountains surrounding the Makaha Vally and open to the ocean. Roughly one mile to the Makaha beach with few tourists and a beautiful beach, as good as the best on Oahu. Close to food, surf shops etc. Comfortable condo, well equipped, Everything you need for living. Clean. Very pleasant owner, easy communication, no fuss. Highly recommended, we'd like to return in the future!

Lovely out-of-the-way apartment

  • 4 of 5

The VRBO description says it all. If you're looking for parties, nightlife, and the glitz of Waikiki, this place is not for you. If however, you want to be in a secure, quiet area, close to gorgeous beaches, with palm trees swaying in the breeze outside your window, you should contact Catriona and book it. To be honest, the Waianae area you'll pass through to get here can seem a bit unsavoury, but the Makaha Village is as safe and secure a place as we've ever stayed, and it's gorgeous! With 24/7 security, wifi, clean new laundry facilities, two lovely pools (each with a hot tub and a kiddies play area), swaying palms, and peacocks strutting their stuff all over the property. Idyllic! And, on top of that, you're only 10 minutes away from some of the loveliest beaches on the island - Makaha Beach at the bottom of the road, or drive just a few minutes up the Farrington Highway - try Makua Beach - a real gem!

Clean, has everything you need, close to amenities

  • 5 of 5

Catriona was welcoming and had lots of good tourist tips. The condo was clean when we arrived and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. It was truly home away from home. We hope to return again as we loved it!

Quiet Stay in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The condo is beautiful, roomy and clean. The grounds around the complex were just the same. We loved that it was further out from the city, like we were truly getting away.

Great property and stay

  • 4 of 5

Off the beaten track location, away from the crowds. Facilities at property include 2 pools and laundry facilities (great for longer stays), beach(es) just down the road, well-equipped kitchen, Netflix on the tv, wifi for the kids, loads of linens and towels, all contributed to a fun time where we didn't need to worry about missing something. Listing was accurate and owner (Catriona) had some excellent recommendations of things to do in the area and restaurants and was very responsive. Peacocks and wild (free range?) chickens roam the grounds, so be prepared to be woken up at dawn by the cacophony, which was a pleasant surprise. Great view of the west side of Oahu and the sunsets were amazing. Downsides: The rental is on the 3rd floor, so if you don't like stairs, this isn't the place for you; Tendency to get a little hot in the afternoon from the sun hitting the large balcony windows, but fans supplied by owner and cross-breezes helped dramatically.

Hawaii Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent place to stay, if you want to get away from it all and it is not your first trip to Oahu or you don't mind the driving to visit all the sites. We drove about 800 miles to visit all the sites and that was trying to visit all the places in one area in a single day. The condo itself was great. It was quiet and away from all the hustle and bustle of Honolulu. Catroina was very helpful with her recommendations for local restaurants, beaches, and sites. The only drawback is the condo does not have air conditioning.

Resort View, Fantastic area for hikes, Beaches with low tourist density walking distance away!!

  • 5 of 5

Fell in love as soon as we arrived.

Plenty of space inside so that we weren't tripping over our children (which is usually the case in cramped hotel rooms).

Small front deck is a draw back, but the view more then makes up for this short coming.

The complex itself has live Peacocks that rome around as they please, adding to the tropical magic.

A brisk hike can be found just around 200 meters up the road thats hard enough to leave you with a stomach for a large lunch, but easy enough for our youngest (12) to act as pack leader most of the time.

Makaha beach is outstanding as well, a little further then the walking trail, but by no means out of walking distance.

Not only does this beach have the benefit of being remote enough to limit human traffic, theres also an increase in aquatic life traffic as a result. I was able to have my entire family swim besides two Sea Turtles. This left quiet the lasting impression with my boys.

We usually don't like to repeat trips/locations for our family vacations, but Catriona's Makaha Vally condo might be the exception to that rule!

(lots of stairs might not be suitable for seniors)
