Our condo has been newly updated with paint, ceramic tile and area rugs throughout and has high speed wi-fi and can be hard wired or wireless accessed. The furnishings are BRAND NEW as of March 2014. The condo is smoke free. A 46' flat screen with cable is located in the living room and a 36' in the bedroom. The motif is Hawaiian/Polynesian. The bath area is all tile, with beautiful furnishings, and a large walk-in shower. All of the towels, linens, and small appliance are NEW as of March 2014. The condo's are quiet, the property is well maintained and has security for your convenience. The salt water pool area is quiet, as well. Grilling by the pool is a nice feature. There are trails to hike. The beach is within walking distance, but is 3/4's of a mile away.
We are not native Hawaiian, but we LOVE coming to Hawaii and have done so for 25 years. Brenda and I live in Oklahoma City (Go Sooners! AND Thunder Up!). We have been married for 46 years in September. We are blessed with 3 adult children and 7 grandchildren. Interestingly, we met in college. I managed to earn 3 degrees in my life, a BA, Masters, and Ph.D. in Leadership. That one came late in life and I would recommend doing it and NOT let age be a deterrent. :)
I am an ordained minister in the Southern Baptist Convention and work for one of the SBC entities. Brenda taught school for many years when our children were younger. Most recently she has gone back to work at the same school where she taught and is the receptionist. We would love for you to enjoy our home and enjoy that 'dream vacation', honeymoon excursion, first trip or multiple trip to Oahu.
Michael (Mike) Hand, PhD purchased this condo in 2014
We have been coming to Oahu and Makaha since 1990. We really do not get away much other than coming here. There is much to see if this is your first visit to the island. However, if this is not your first time you could not pick a better place to just relax, enjoy the sun, and read a good book. We have talked about buying a condo for several years and 2014 became the year of reality. We are looking forward to being here for many more years. We have furnished it the way we want it to be and NOT look like just a typical 'vacation rental'. You will find pictures of our family and other personalized things. The furnishings are NEW and of high quality. Makaha will make you want to own your own, I can promise. I can also promise you will not be disappointed with your choice of rental when you rent from The Hand's.
We looked at several condos at MVT and some were eliminated simply because of a poor view. Looking out our bedroom or living room full glass windows is the perfect view of the mountains, valley, and ocean. Look at the pictures and see for yourself.
My husband and I enjoyed our stay. Clean and secure, everything we needed was there. Enjoyed my walk every morning to the ocean and back.
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this condo. It was well equipped and in good shape with modern comfortable furniture.
I appreciated having things like beach chairs, boogie boards, beach towels, ziploc bags, foil, Saran wrap and cooking spray provided with the unit.
The only drawback was that the lanai is quite narrow (like every other 1 bedroom unit in the building).
I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your condo. Our only complaint was it was too short a time. Every thing was clean and well appointed. The kitchen was very well equipped, plenty of dishes and utensils. The unit was very light and bright and the view was spectacular. We loved the floor to ceiling and wall to wall glass window looking out over the valley and mountains. A spectacular view! The third floor location at tree level was ideal for listening to the birds and viewing the scenery.
This place was amazing! There is something for the whole family! We enjoyed searching for sea turtles, hiking and exploring the caves and enjoying the luscious scenery too! The beach was fantastic for surfing, picnics and sunsets!
The condo is very clean and decorated very tastefully! The pool and BBQ is a bonus after a long day at the beach!
Our family enjoyed this location very much! Great for day trips around the island! Relaxing to come to the condo after day trips around the island!
We are very pleased with the condo, excellant condition and has everything we need, good shopping close by, very quiet with a great view.
My husband and I stayed at the Makaha Towers for the last three nights of our 3 week Hawaii holiday. The condo itself is lovely .... beautifully furnished and with a magnificent view. Unfortunately, we weren't able to enjoy any of the ammenities as we were on the move sightseeing each day.
The only down side for us was in no way related to the accommodation. First of all we arrived on a Friday evening and had to sit in very heavy Honolulu traffic. It took us approximately 2 hours to get to the condo that first evening. Secondly, because most of our activities were to the east and north of the island, we found the drive quite long each day to and from our home away from home.
The Waianae and Makaha region has beautiful beaches in their own rite..... unfortunately time did not allow us to take advantage of that. If you are looking for a relaxing vacation away from the hustle and bustle of the big city, this is an amazing accommodation. We wouldn't hesitate to book again when we are planning to relax and enjoy ourselves! Many thanks to Michael and Brenda for sharing their beautiful condo with us! And I must say, I was impressed with the personal communication provided by Michael. We actually spoke on the phone and he advised us of some of the best attractions...very helpful for sure!
Makaha Valley Towers may seen at www.makahavalleytowers.org. Nestled at the base of the gorgeous Makaha Valley Mountains, our condo over looks the valley with a fantastic ocean view to the right.
