We provide local telephone, linens, beach gear and more. The kitchen is well stocked with a variety of appliances, cookware, and plenty of dinner and glassware. Every effort is made to ensure that you have what you need. Truly, this is your 'Home Away From Home'.
Local Beaches: The world famous Makaha Surf Beach was home to the first organized surf meet in Hawaii in the 1950´s. With huge waves in the winter months, and a huge community of 'regular' surfers, Makaha is excellent for summer snorkeling, sunbathing, and surfing. Makua and Yokohama Bays, at the extreme northwestern tip of the island, are two of Oahu´s few completely unspoiled, uncrowded beaches. Concierge.com´s review of Hawaii´s top beaches mentions Yokohama Bay. The nearby Ko Olina Marriott Resort and Disney's Aulani Resort are located by four man-made lagoons that are completely protected from waves and currents, perfect for families with young children. The resort is beautifully landscaped and maintained, all the beaches are open to the public.
Dining: The Makaha Valley Country Club is open for breakfast and lunch. The Sunset Cafe is an open air, casual restaurant, located at the Army Recreation Facility in Waianae. It is situated right on the beach with amazing sunsets. The restaurant is open for dinner every evening with live music and dancing Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights and karaoke Monday thru Thursday. They are open for breakfast and lunch on week-ends. Taco’s and More serves authentic Mexican food with live music on Thursday nights and is a local favorite. It is located on Farrington Hwy in Waianae. A Starbucks and Jamba Juice are located at the Waianae Mall.
Leeward Oahu: Makaha is located approximately 15 miles from Kapolei and 40 miles from Honolulu/Waikiki on the west coast of Oahu. Despite the close physical proximity, it takes approximately 25 minutes to get to Kapolei and around an hour to get to Honolulu. Many of the roads on the Leeward Coast are still small highways with lowered speed limits. Makaha´s nearest neighbor is Waianae. Makaha has a population of approximately 8,000 and Waianae´s population is approximately 10,000. Kapolei is the nearest major town and is quickly growing into a bustling city. Already called Oahu´s 'Second City' (second only to the capital of Honolulu), Kapolei is a carefully planned mixture of commercial spaces, housing, government buildings, and parks. A Costco, Target, Ross, K-Mart, Movie Theater, Safeway Grocery Store, Long's Drug Store, and numerous small shops and many restaurants are all located in Kapolei.
This was our first trip to the Island. The staff were all very friendly and willing to help out. From making the reservations to the time we checked out everything was as advertised and there were no problems. The only issue was it was a drive to any were you really need a car but other than that it was top notch for us Thanks Again and we would recommend this to anyone.
My family stayed in this vacation home from 12/9/13-12/15/13. This is my second time to visit Hawaii, and I have stayed in 5 vacation homes (in the U.S.) so far. Based on my experience with diverse vacation homes, this is my favorite vacation home which I ever visited (in my reasonable price range). Although this home is not an excellent hotel, this is like a real home.
Here are what I like most:
1. Well organized - this home is very well organized and cleaned.
2. Nice equipments - this home already has what you need in Hawaii (beach towel, mat, snorkeling stuffs, and even water shoes -- I guessed that some of them were left by other occupants but they are very clean and organized).
3. Safe neighborhood - this condo is well maintained by office and security persons at the front gate.
4. Hawaiian style home - I was very impressed by nice Hawaiian decorations.
5. Nice Kitchen - You don't need to buy anything to cook. They have pretty much everything. Although there are some specific stuffs were missing, we did not encounter any major problems.
6. Nice owner - I think that this owner was well organized and very kind. I was worried a little bit because of a comment below, but I was very impressed by the owner's prompt response and coordination for our visit.
7. Good for family - This condo can accommodate about 6 people (one queen-size bed, two twin-size bed, and one sleep sofa).
Note: This home is much nicer than what you see in the pictures on this web page.
Here are some small issues I found (I hope these comments are not offensive to the owner.):
1. A little dust - Yes, we may have these dusts in our homes, so they are not a big problem. I found a little dust in ventilation and the fan in the bathroom.
2. Location - Makaha Valley is located at the north-west coast of O'ahu, so it may take about 35-45 minutes from Honolulu. If you plan very well where to go in O'ahu, this geographic does not matter; however, if you are not well-organized, you may spend more time on the road. Or, if your main purpose to visit O'ahu is to take a rest, then this home would be the perfect fit for you.
Overall, I would like to recommend this place for others, and I would like to stay this vacation home next time. In addition, this home is very eco-friendly because there are some used stuffs (e.g. shampoo, unopened foods, and etc). I think they are some left-over stuffs by the prior visitors, and I really appreciate the owner makes them useful again.
We enjoyed our stay in this delightful condo! Our first trip to Hawaii was exciting and this place did not disappoint. It is a little drive from the Honolulu airport so you will need a rental car, but you need a car anyway to experience all the things Oahu has to offer. We went to the North Shore and watched the surfing competition...that was fun!! Saw some of the legends of surfing out in the ever increasing big waves. We went to Waikiki beach a few times and that was awesome also. We have a Costco membership so we got all our food supplies for the week and it worked out just perfectly. The condo is well equipped with everything you need to make a meal, whether it be breakfast, lunch or dinner. The condo is a very secure place with security that is on top of things at all times...no worries there! I love the Hawaiian theme decor in the unit, so cozy and homey. When can we come back???
I don't even know where to begin, but from the first email to checking out of the condo, our accommodations in this condo were top notch! Sunnie is one of the nicest people you could ever hope to deal with and at the mention of her name to the security guard, they just smiled and nodded! The condo was spic and span and had EVERYTHING! I love to cook, so the applicances, measuring cups, even spices were there. The bathroom had shampoo, sunblock, band aids and even a scale! We even had access to an insulated cooler and boogie boards. I cannot rave about this place enough!
It is also very close to Waikiki, Diamond Head, Ala Moana mall, and many of the other sites. There are fast food restaurants and a great grocery store down the road, maybe 10 -15 minutes away. It is close to all of the island attractions, too! It has a nice pool, too, but don't bring any float-y toys except water wings. There is a lovely grilling area with picnic benches if you wish have a little barbecue, too.
Sunnie provides a list of local area attractions with detailed info, some of her own favorites, which we liked a lot, and is accessible by email if you have a question during your stay. The property is in a security guarded property so you can only get in if you have the parking pass and they patrol at night, which is really nice knowing you are secure.
The view from the condo is amazing. It's nestled against the mountains and you are high enough to have a gorgeous view of the ocean from the living room and main bedroom.
There are laundry facilities too, which is a must for those days of sun and fun. We loved it so much my husband and I wish we could by our own condo there! You will not be disappointed and our family of 5 (kids 8, 13, and 15) had enough room to spread out! All I can say is MAHALO SUNNIE!!! We loved it and hope we can return soon!
Everything in the description is TRUE!
My wife and I stayed here four weeks, Feb 15 - Mar 16, 2011. It was clean and very comfortable. Everything works - it is so nice to enjoy a vacation without the hassle of breakdowns. Would we stay here again? In a heartbeat - we have booked six weeks for next year.
Thanks Sunni for making our vacation perfect.
We loved the condo. It was great to be away from the hustle and bustle of Honolulu (which we also enjoyed for a while). The location is peaceful and beautiful. The world renowned beach is 1.8 miles away, has incredible wave action and is known for its surfing. The Makaha Golf Club is one mile away and in addition to golf, has a good restaurant. The condo is extremely well equipped and tastefully decorated with a Hawaiian style. It was clean and well maintained. We had no problems in contacting the owner, making arrangements for our stay or paying the bill. They were most helpful. We would definitely recommend this place.
The Makaha Valley is Oahu's best kept secret. If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life, Makaha is the place for you. The beautiful Waianae Beaches are perfect for complete relaxation, just sleep or read one of the great books we provide. Makaha Surf Beach is 1 mile straight down the road, and is famous for world class surfing. If you want more activity you can scuba (the Makaha Caverns are awesome), snorkel, hike, or rent bikes, kayaks and water sports equipment down the road (see www.halenalu.com for it's Waianae location and rental prices). The Makaha Valley Country Club Is less than a mile away. The golf course is known for it's beauty as much as it's rigor and offers breakfast and lunch in a relaxed atmosphere.
