FANTASTIC OCEAN VIEW, MINUTES FROM BEACH WITH TURTLES, DOLPHINS.

Makaha Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath Sleeps 2-4 + one infant

Enjoy the wonderful views of the nearby Ocean and the steep Waianae Mountains while relaxing in our Comfortable Island Furniture. Experience the Beautifully Manicured Grounds, or swim in the 2 Pools relax in the Jacuzzi, exercise at the Basketball & Tennis courts. 5 minutes away by car, you can soak up the sun on a White-Sand Beach in comfortable Tommy Bahama Lawn Chairs under an Over-Sized Umbrella. Snorkel with the Turtles, and if you are lucky, the Dolphins off the reef at Makaha or Po'Kai Beach, will swim with you. For the Golfer, there is an Exceptionally beautiful golf course where the management will happily rent you clubs. For your pleasure, we had fun decorating the condo in Island Decor. You and your guests may sit down to a Delicious Meal at our large table that seats 6 or more or just work a Cross Word or a Jigsaw Puzzle. 42' flat screen WV, WiFi available and Netflix capability for your pleasure..

Further Details: Each room has a ceiling Fan that works in combination with the louvered windows, to cool each room allowing the Trade Winds to gently blow through the condo in typical Island Fashion. One bedroom has a ''sweet'' King Size bed, 2 Side tables with lamps, a Granite Topped 4 Drawer Dresser with a 32'' Flat screen TV. The second Bedroom has 2 Twin Beds with Antique Island Headboards and a small chest between the beds with a pineapple lamp. All our walls are tastefully decorated with Island Art that further compliments the decor. You will be able to rest in peace knowing you have 24 security.

About The Owners: We are from Oregon. We love our Ocean, but prefer more sun. After visiting Hawaii several times, we discovered how invigorated we were by the Sunny Leeward side of Oahu. The surf at Makaha Beach can be calm and fun place to play or have dangerous waves that are so interesting to watch as surfers brave the immense waves. Recently, we tried Paddle Boarding at Po'Kai Beach while turtles and dolphins played right next to the surf board. We have many hikes and bicycle rides left to do in the Makaha area. We love the Saturday Morning Market (get there early), pick up fresh vegetables, fish for dinner, and coffee for breakfast . The Waianae Area feels like old Hawaii. We hope you will enjoy Makaha Valley Plantation as much as we do! Mark and Christina, Eugene, Oregon.

Why the Owner Chose Makaha: We wanted to be 'off the beaten path'. We had spent time in a small village south of Puerto Vallarto, Mexico for a number of years, but we found that there were too many obstacles to really get to know the people and the culture. But living in Makaha, life is pretty quiet but you can still get into Honolulu within 1 hour. Ko'Olina, 20 minutes provides wonderful swimming lagoon and and world class dining. We have only owned our condo since February 2011, but we have already made many new friends at the Makaha Village Plantation. People are very open and friendly.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:

We really enjoyed Swimming in the pool and watching the Kids play. In the evening we relax under a clear star-lit sky in the Jacuzzi. I love to Sit and Read and Watch the Peacocks, ducks, and many different birds and wildlife. We have spent many hours snorkeling off the reef at Makaha Beach and the little turtle beach at Aki Cove. Our relatives have enjoyed swimming with the dolphins at Maku

NIce condo, unruly neighbors, NO AC!

  • 3 of 5
My friend and I booked a stay at the Makaha Valley Plantation. The owner has been very communicative and helpful throughout the whole process. However in all our communication she did not not once mention that the unit did not have AC (check the listing)

Granted, during the winter and spring months in Hawaii (this was my 3rd trip) it is comfortable and you can easily get by with ceiling fans in most of Hawaii. However, in the months of August/September are the hottest months and there are often no trade winds which was the case when we were there the 3rd week of September. The condo was incredibly hot, so hot that I had to go to Walmart to buy box fan to help circulate the air in the unit (the box fan is in the closet, lucky for the next guest) I guess I am naive (since I live in Phoenix) to assume every hot climate such as AZ, FL and HI have AC to deal with the hottest months - I guess I was wrong.

The other fact to be aware of is that the condo is on the 3rd floor which means having to lug groceries, luggage and beach paraphernalia up 3 flights of stairs only to enter a stifling hot condo. We found respite in the fan, sticking our heads in the freezer and cool showers. Some nights it did cool off thankfully, but the time we spent in the condo (afternoons/evenings) it was downright uncomfortable.

The other thing you will have to deal with is loud, unruly neighbors and this is despite posted quiet hours starting at 9pm. One night we were awakened in the middle of the night by a man yelling at his gf/wife suggesting suggesting she was cheating on him. The next morning he continued his verbal assault and he chased her car down the road. We called Security but they didn't do anything. On-premise Security is a joke - call the cops instead. In fact, on another night, we saw cops enter a unit where there was a loud argument going on.

Remember, all the windows are open and the units create an echo chamber where you can hear everything from noisy kids/birds and cans and bottles tossed at 6am. This is another benefit of having AC - drowning out the outside noise which we were not so lucky. Thankfully we had ear plugs as well.

On the plus side, the condo is fully stocked with everything you need. Beach chairs, boogie boards, linens, cookware etc. If you are going to visit do so in fall/winter/spring. However, I think the owner should invest in a window AC which would make it more enjoyable for her guests. Now I know to ask and not assume

Owner's Response: Dear Christina & Michele,
I appreciate your honest review. I stayed at my condo Aug 21-Sept 2, 2014 and honestly was quite comfortable with the breezes every afternoon and evening. I think you experienced one of the rare weeks that Makaha weather is uncomfortable. I appreciate that you bought a fan for the condo., I will purchase another fan for the other room. I hope you come back to Hawaii in the future. I would love to host you again.
Thank you for reporting the incident with the nearby neighbor. I will look into this incident immediately. A call to me or the onsite manager in the future would be most helpful.

An amazing getaway!!

  • 4 of 5
We got to stay in a very lovely condo that had everything we needed to make it our home away from home! The view from the lanai was breathtaking & we loved the breeze that would come thru late afternoon to help cool us off! Waianae is a wonderful place to explore - the beaches aren't crowded & we loved how clear the ocean is!! We enjoyed having a place to come home to, to recuperate & recharge! One word of advice: don't go do laundry without applying big spray!! Lol! They are hungry little things there!

All in all, we feel we have found a wonderful gem in Waianae & look forward to when we can stay there again! Mahalo to Christina & to Sheryl!!

Owner's Response: I am so happy that you enjoyed your stay in our condo and thanks for the reminder to bring or buy bug spray. You will need it from to time but almost never in the condo. I will ask our maintenance why they haven't sprayed in the laundry room like they do around the buildings.
We would be most happy to have you return in the future! Christina.

Neat and clean.

  • 5 of 5
The unit was really clean and very well stocked. We used a lot of the beach equipment and really appreciated having them there and not having to buy or lug around. The construction going on in the back is a bit of an eye sore but I guess that is temporary. I would stay in this unit again if I visit Makaha next time. Dealing with Christina was very easy and refund was a breeze.

Thanks for a wonderful time.
