The Best Holiday Ever!

We stayed at the Makaha Beach Cabanas at property #250185 while on a 10 day trip in Oahu. The condo belongs to Tara and her husband. This was by far the best deal we found on the island after weeks of research. Tara was super nice, although we never actually got to meet her but she was very friendly and helpful over the phone.
I have to say we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the condo. It was clean, beautiful and had everything we could possibly need to feel at home (pots, pans, cutlery, dishes, flatware, spices, tape, toilet paper, umbrellas, snorkeling equipment, lots of towels, boogie boards, chairs, bedsheets, pillows, extra mattress, alarm clock, even nail polish remover!). The list goes on. I mean, you'll be surprised at how convenient the condo is. It is a short drive away from 7/11 and the local Tamura Market which has pretty much everything you'll need.
The cool thing about the condo is that the entrance faces beautiful green mountains and the lanai from the master bedroom faces the ocean. You couldn't find a better ocean front property than this. Sunrise from the mountains and sunset on the beach. It is absolutely gorgeous. This condo is on the 6th floor so it's perfect because you get a much more beautiful view and the beach is just an elevator ride away. I found myself waking up at 4 am to see the moon over the ocean. The view is breathtaking.
We loved hanging out at the beach. The property is well gated with a security guard, so it feels safe. You need a security system to open the front gate, then the building gate and then to operate the elevator (also to open the beach entrance). Couldn't get safer than that! The beach is private and not crowded and noisy. We used to drive to all the touristy locations in the day and then come back in the evening to relax at the beach. We didn't have to worry about our things being stolen like we would otherwise at the public beaches. The beach is absolutely gorgeous and great for snorkeling.
There's a barbecue by the beach and a great place to make friends with other people living there. There's a place to do laundry as well which was very helpful because we did a lot of hikes and got pretty dirty. The locals were very friendly and you'll find strangers on the street smiling at you saying "Aloha! Welcome to Hawai'i."
I would seriously recommend this place to anyone who wishes to make a trip to Oahu for a relaxing and stress free holiday. Mahalo, Tara, for a lovely holiday!
