Makaha Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, Studio + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

A dream come true! Step out the lanai and onto a lovely sandy beach! If you're looking for a relaxing vacation, this is the place! Spend the day soaking up the sun or playing in the waves. In the evening, sit and watch spectacular sunsets from your lanai. Kick back and watch a movie or just snuggle and listen to the ocean on the shore from your bed.

This condo is located on Turtle Beach, next to Lahilahi, between Waianae and Makaha on the island of Oahu. This is a great place to unwind, but be advised this is not a hotel or resort. This is a private residence located in a building with other private residences. We are located about an hour drive from the Honolulu airport.

This condo was completely renovated in December of 2011. New furniture, appliances, cabinets, granite counter tops, tile shower, floors - everything! A full size hide-a-bed is available as well.

**Effective February 1st, 2015 - due to changes by the condo association board of directors, only one check in per month is allowed. We now require at least a 14 night (2 weeks) minimum stay**

About Susan

My husband and I live in Alaska, so being able to get away to Hawaii in the winter is a necessity! We have 2 young boys, who love playing at the beach.

Susan purchased this condo in 2011

Why Susan chose Makaha

My husband and I fell in love with this location when we rented a unit in this building. Lucky for us, this one was for sale and we bought it and completely renovated it in 2011. We are so excited to be able to share this special place with others. It's a great place to come and unwind.

What makes this condo unique

This place is an hour drive from the hustle and crowds of Waikiki. If you're looking for nightlife and crowded streets, this is not the place for you. It's very low key and local. It's perfect to wake up with the sun and take an early morning walk along the beach each morning! Just open your lanai door and go! No big planning or packing for the beach each day. Just walk out your door with your towel and you are there!

Nice Place, Great Stay

  • 4 of 5

We found this beach front condo to be exactly what we were looking for. We had stayed 2 nights in Waikiki, but then traveled to Makaha for the remaining 5 days of our vacation. Our friends rented the unit next door which is also owned by the same people. It was great to have privacy but be next to our friends.

When we first arrived at the condo we did notice a few tiny moths flying about, with a fly swatter we were able to take care of that problem on the first night, and had no other bug issues. I assume they are from the Screen Door not working correctly, as a previous renter mentioned. The screen door would not stay closed when we arrived, upon further inspection the track near the magnet was filled with sand and debris. After cleaning that out the screen worked well except for when it was windy out.

This condo supplied us with ample towels, hand soap, and anything else we needed.

I loved the toys that were available on site. We got great use of the boogie boards and floating noodles. There were also plenty of other toys we ended up not using, but it was wonderful to have all the options and not have to worry about buying or renting them.

We were there when the weather was really hot (85-95 deg) and not too many trade winds, I think an A/C unit would have made our stay a little more comfortable.

Overall a great place that appeared to be well cared for and maintained.

We were able to make several day trips out to locations that were not too far from the condo; Pearl Harbor (FYI, you don’t need to pre-book. We ended up walking around and visiting the Arizona Memorial which was free), The North Shore, The Dole Plantation, and Waikiki. Traffic was not the best so if possible try to avoid rush hour, if you can avoid rush hour, traffic was not a problem.

Thank you!

Good and bad....

  • 1 of 5

I was drawn to this unit because of the cute turtle theme but;

Here is a list of what we found.....

Sand, dead cockroaches and balls of hair under the couch.

Sand on the hide-a-bed mattress when we pulled it out. A little scary to sleep on anyway after what was under the couch.

The fridge was dirty with hairs that did not belong to us

Dried blood on the microwave tray from defrosting something.

Stains on the bedspread

We had to keep all our food in the fridge because of the bug problem. Every dish had to be washed before using also.

The cooler had a broken handle

The screen door would not stay shut, it's on a magnetic roller

We were left with half a bottle of watered down hand soap in the bathroom, same with the dish soap in the kitchen.

This place is managed by a rental company and when I contacted them on the second day to ask about doing laundry and mentioned what I found under the couch she totally disregarded anything I said and just addressed the laundry question. Maybe they just need to get a new cleaning lady. It is a beautiful place with a awesome view but the expectations and competition on VRBO etc is higher these days than it used to be. I have a rental and it is nicer than the house I live in!

To be fair here are the good things

Great view with nice access to beach

Sun umbrella, boogie boards, snorkel gear, etc

The staff was very friendly.

The Kuerig and the blender were awesome, but rinse before using.

The vacuum to clean

Some things about the general area to be aware of....


Lots of barking dogs

Our rental car got keyed in the parking lot

Locals were not very friendly

Traffic on the whole island was horrible.

Owner's Response: Oh my god! As the owner, I am shocked and saddened to hear what you found at our condo. This is not the experience, nor the standard we strive for at our place at all. I will address these issues with our cleaning staff immediately. There is no excuse for finding sand, hair, dead bugs, etc. when you arrive for what should be a relaxing stay at our place. The condo should be impeccably clean. I expect nothing less than that. My husband and I have spent a great deal of money to upgrade our place and provide all the comforts you would need for a stay. Just last year, we installed the new sliding glass door wall unit with the rolling screen, since the sliding screen seemed to be destroyed after every few stays. I’m sad to hear that the rolling screen seems to be inoperable now. We will be looking to see what can be done to correct it when we arrive in December. The hide-a-bed also had been upgraded with a new, memory foam mattress (in place of the normal, uncomfortable hide-a-bed mattress it came with). I’m sorry to hear that you felt uncomfortable to sleep on it due to cleanliness concerns. Also, pest control is something that I take extremely serious. I schedule regular appointments with the pest control company to make sure nothing starts making a home at our place. Unfortunately, not all guests are as careful about making sure their food items are discarded or stored properly. We provide many storage containers to help in that “fight”, but sometimes bugs happen in Hawaii. I am in no way excusing what you found; just admitting it is a struggle to keep bugs out. I wish to offer you my sincerest apologies that we did not provide a place that lived up to your expectations (or mine).

We really enjoyed our stay here. I think what sold it for me was being able to walk out onto the beach from the back door! It was exactly as pictured too. Thank you so much for sharing it with us!

Great place

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I just got back from spending 3 nights at the Makaha Beach condo and had a great time. We were a little concerned after driving through a not-so-great part of town to get there but the condo itself and the beach is totally fine. There is only this condo and a slightly taller one next door so the beach wasn't crowded at all.

The lack of AC didn't bother us at all since there was always a breeze being right on the beach. It was so nice to be able to walk back and forth between the beach and condo for drinks or to grab lunch. We had everything we needed there - towels, chairs, snorkel gear, boogie boards, etc. and that came in handy.

We did have a slight moth issue and had to kill over 50 moths during our stay but it could have been a worse bug. We found the breeding spot in some old flour and put that in the dumpster but the damage had already been done with some already hatched. We made a game out of who could swat and kill the most.

Overall our stay was very pleasant. I will say there is NO good place that we found to eat around the condo so you will be cooking unless you eat at one of the 4 fast food places nearby. The grocery store isn't far and we found what we needed. Just remember that this place is not in the 'touristy' part of Oahu but has a great beach and the water is fantastic!
