  • Beautiful scenery a little far from the hubbub

    "Loved the condo. Had all the necessities... Kitchen needs, plenty of nice towels, boogie boards, cooler and beach mats. Only drawback was the drive back and forth: 30 minutes to south, hour to Honolulu or Millilani, more to North Shore. Not many known restaurants on this side of town so felt we had to drive the 30+ minutes for dinner each night. Just having never been before was hard to pick a spot to meet our needs. Would probably stay in Millilani which is more centralized next time so I'm closer to everything."

  • Why leave the lanai...surfers...waves...rocks...boats...snorkeling...all from three floors up!

    "VERY clean, cute, and a breathtaking view. We LOVED it here. Heather has remodeled and stocked this place with everything you need to have many wonderful days on the beach. Quality beach umbrella, chairs, beach towels, cooler, snorkel equipment, and binoculars to watch the surfers and boats that are outside your patio door. Did I mention that you can snorkel from the lanai? Yes, if you are there early evening you will see schools of fish coming up to feed on the rocks just to the right of the lanai. They are beautiful and the water is crystal clear. No snorkel needed. :-) We even saw a 6 foot eel one morning. That was amazing! We purchased our food from Costco or the local Sack&Save so that we could "cook in" and enjoy the view from the lanai. It was the best restaurant on the island. Heather was a great host. She seemed to really care about us as guests and that we would enjoy the condo. She has a well stocked kitchen, plush towels, comfortable bed, and a ceiling fan. Heather returned our damage deposit in full the day after we got home from Hawaii. The only reservation I would mention is that if you are big on the night life/glitz/glamor of Waikiki this is not the place for you. This condo is on the area of the island where the locals live. Almost all areas of Oahu seem to have a homeless issue so you will see their tents/encampments everywhere. We were never bothered by anyone and the locals we approached for help were very kind. I will admit that it did take some time for me to be comfortable with the homelessness. Just a tip - ALL beach bathrooms on Oahu are filthy. Bring hand sanitizer or a small bottle of soap with you. Wear your suit if you plan to stop at a beach because you won't feel like changing in the bathrooms...at least we did not. We would stay at this condo again, we miss it so much. We were not sure we would like Oahu because it seemed to commercialized but this condo made Oahu a favorite for us. Thank you, Heather for a wonderful, comfortable stay. We really enjoyed your condo."

  • 5 star review - Comfortable, Enjoyable, Accommodating

    "My family and I spent 3 weeks at the Makaha condo and we were completed satisfied with the condo's condition, amenities within the condo and the condo complex itself. The pictures don't do the condo justice and I think at the time I booked the condo, the amenities page wasn't completely accurate. The kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, rice cooker/slow cooker, juicer, etc... wifi was available along with netxflix which was a win for the kids! The decorator was sweet and cute. The condo is older, but the owners definitely refurbished the kitchen, and other parts of the condo. It was very very very comfortable, clean, and spacious. Plenty of towels (beach included) and linen. The beach equipment was a plus. Snorkel gear, boggie boards, mats, beach umbrellas etc... was very much appreciated! All equipment mentioned was kept on the lanai. The boggie boards have a nice home behind the storage container and from the ground you really can't see the boards unless you really look hard! However, we received a visit from the property manager stating that the boards were visible from the lanai and the security guards reported it. We kept them inside after the visit from the property manager. The lanai is gorgeous. No other condos looked directly into the lanai. Condos above and to the left maybe able to see down, but the umbrellas were positioned to block on-looker and of course the sun and rain. There is a plumeria tree right next to the lanai which lent to the beautiful view and of course birds would perch in the tree. Red Cardinals. The resident peacocks were a pleasure to watch! Beautiful birds and they travel in groups. Makaha can get hot and the living room has a small air conditioner. The rooms have fans that are fixed to the walls. There is another fan in the living room fixed to the wall that wasn't working. And then there was the standing fan. The standing fan moved around the house quite a bit. If there were trade winds we would open the bedroom vents and the sliding glass door. The breeze was awesome!! I would recommend a few more portable fans. You need the fans on at night. Overall, we had a wonderful time at the makaha condo. It was perfect for my families' vacationing needs! Makaha is located to the extreme west thus it was about 30 minutes to Kapolei, 45 to an hour to Honolulu, 90 minutes plus to the north side etc... but it was worth it. We enjoyed the day trips. We look forward to coming back. Mahalo Nui Lo"
