We live in Michigan and have been coming to Hawaii for years. Currently, we are both retired but because our grandchildren live in Michigan, we can't live here full-time...or we would! We can only come for about 6 weeks in the winter and so decided to share our Fabulous Condo with others.
Janis purchased this Condo in 2012
Why Janis chose Waianae
We have been to all the islands numerous times & have stayed in wonderful hotels & time shares. Once we found the Cabanas we knew we had found the Best of the Best! We didn't have to leave in order to do all the activities we love: snorkel, dive, whale watch, beach walking and on & on! Being in a local area, allows us to skip the crowds unless we want to take the 45 min. drive to see the sights in Waikiki, Honolulu, Pearl Harbor or the North Shore. It's great to be close enough to get to the fine restaurants, shopping & visit the famous attractions and then come back to peace & quiet!
What makes this Condo unique
The absolute best part is being on the main floor & just walking out on the virtually private beach. Clean water, trade winds, lapping surf - all in your front 'yard'. It really doesn't get any better than this!

Very nice condo on a beautiful beach.
We loved the stay in this little condo on the beach. Saw whales, turtles and had fun watching kids body surf and snorkel. Great place to relax and enjoy the beauty of Hawaii.
12 wonderful days at Makaha beach Cababa's
Thank you Janis for providing a very clean unit. Towels, beach chairs, boggy boards, snorkels and masks, cooler and even a fishing pole. Plus more. This is a great place to stay every time we are in Hawaii. Priced well and has many things you won't need to pick up at the store. Great to see the Weber gas grill. The beach is terrific with few people and the Puka shell hunting was fun for our Granddaughter and us. If your not into the over crowded tourist areas this is the place. Highly recommend!!!

Mahalo! I love it when our guests have a great time!!!
Makaha Beach Paradise
We loved our stay at Makaha Beach! Walking out of our condo onto the beach into the water....paradise! Ending the day with stunning sunsets - breathtaking! The condo was a perfect beach house well supplied with kitchen and beach essentials. We’d return in a heartbeat (and hope to!)!
Many Mahalos! We love it when our guests enjoy our corner of Paradise as much as we do!!
Quiet and relaxing.
Really enjoyed our stay at the cabanas. Access right to the beach. Gated property, which is good. It is far from the crowded area of Waikiki, so if this is what you are looking for, go for it.
Wonderful and Quiet Beach on Oahu
My husband and I took our granddaughter, age 15 , for a 10 day stay here. It was perfect for us! We wanted to stay away from the crowds, and we like to be able to walk out from our lanai to the beach. Perfect! From the pictures it looks as if there would be hundreds of people around, since the cabanas and the condos next door are both high risers, but that was not the case at all. Most were not occupied. On the weekends the beach is more crowded, but still way less crowded than other beaches on Oahu.
Our condo was clean,comfortable, and has everything you need (except for a small cooler, which we bought and left in the bedroom closet).
We snorkeled all over the island, as well as in front of the condo. Toward the big rock you see in the picture is nice!
We used the outdoor grills and the washer and dryer, both located nearby.
The locals were friendly, and the staff at the condo always greeted us warmly.
Janis was always able to answer our questions promptly, as we were preparing for the trip.
I would recommend this condo to all of my friends who dislike hotels, and enjoy staying in a comfortable, relaxing environment.

Mahalo for your lovely review! You were a pleasure to have as a guest - please come back soon!
Perfect ground floor unit, just walk right out and dip your toes in the sand. Good bang for your buck
Short & Sweet - I love it! Mahalo for your kind words & hope you visit us again!
Makaha is today very much the way it was 100 years ago - before 'civilization' came along and covered Hawaii with 30-story buildings and freeways everywhere. You are totally surrounded by natural beauty at its finest everywhere you look.
Your can enjoy scenic driving, our condo is a 15-minute ride beyond where the freeway ends….you’ll marvel at the lush coastline and fantastic beaches as you ride along. There are mountains to hike, valleys to explore, two local golf courses and every water sport you can imagine. It's the perfect spot for those who would like a rest from the hustle and bustle of city life.
Enjoy the ocean right outside your door. Swim, Snorkel, Scuba, Boogie Board - or take a stroll and enjoy the ancient ruins a short distance from our beach. Surf world famous Makaha Beach, site of international surfing competitions.
Swim and play near the Dolphins in the ocean – it’s a fantastic experience!
