FABULOUS OCEANFRONT BEACH HIDE-AWAY - ROMANTIC & SERENE RESIDENCE CONDO

Makaha Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 BEDROOM, 1 BATH, SLEEPS UP TO 3

PLEASE CONTACT ME DIRECTLY FOR AVAILABLE DATES!

What makes this property unique is that it's on probably the most beautiful beach on Oahu! All sand, and it's NEVER crowded. Facing full WEST, the sunset is never out of sight. If you look down from the lanai, this condo sits RIGHT IN THE SAND! (see pictures) Unbelievable! Shopping and Sightseeing available but most people just stick close to home, de-stress and enjoy the peace and serenity that is yours.

Condo is FULLY STOCKED with basic staples. There's even shampoos, conditioner, sun block, aloe vera, & moisture lotion to use till you get to buy some. There's towels, linens and even big beach towels... so just bring your swim suit, a few clothes, personal toiletries, and then go shopping for your favorite foods to cook. Dishes, glassware, flatware, even new pots & pans! A blender, coffee pot, toaster, coffee grinder, everything you need to cook, eat, drink & enjoy! There's 2 big chairs at the dining table + 2 very comfy folding chairs stored in the closet 4 guests.

SLEEPING AREA: AWESOME KING SIZE BED in the Oceanfront Bedroom. The sound of the ocean will lull you to sleep every night! The easy pull-out Futon Sofa is in the living room where there's beautiful valley views and you might awake to the crow of a distant rooster now and then. Truly a country BEACH HIDEAWAY! .

ACTIVITIES: Walking, hiking, bike riding, kayaking, body surfing, snorkeling, We have 2 boogie boards and 2 comfy Tommy Bahama beach chairs, a cooler and a beach umbrella to use. Surf Boards, Snorkels & fins can be rented at the corner across from 7-11. Also, there's the Fishing Marina & Dock where you can maybe catch a boat to go fishing. Just ask the locals, pay them a fee and go for it! (Much cheaper than taking a fishing charter from Waikiki)

If you golf, there's the Makaha East Course and the Makaha Resort Course, both within a half mile or so.

The brand new Disney Hawaiian Themed Time Share Resort, The Aulani, is located in Ko' Olina about 10 miles down the road. Ko Olina, is a beautiful resort area with a few big hotels. There are multiple public lagoons with calm waters for non-swimmers.

Nothing more to say except 'Book your time & come!

Lives in Honolulu. Condo was for weekends away from the craziness but economics came into play and just made sense to rent out as a vacation rental.

Eileen Hines purchased this condo in 2000

I chose this property because it was located in the BEST position on the BEST BEACH.

FULL unobstructed view, no shutter supports, or hanging items to take away from this awesome view.

GENTLE WAVES, SPECTACULAR SUNSETS/MOONLIGHT!

  • 4 of 5
We (a couple w/toddler) stayed from 9/10 - 9/17/2013 and really, really enjoyed our visit. The owner was spot on in her description of the property, information on how to get there and rental conditions. All in all, very straightforward and easy rental.

We chose this location (after a thorough search of alternatives) and found the owner very accomodating and friendly. She is a former airline industry professional. We rented a car (highly recommend, btw) and for a week, drove every other day to other parts of Oahu to see the primary tourist sights outside Honolulu. Her condo became our sanctuary afterwards and was perfect. Her place had all the creature comforts and was quite adequate and we usually ate breakfast & dinner there. A large supermarket is within 5-10 minute drive.

We especially enjoyed the early mornings and evenings on the lanai. Very relaxing to listen to wave action as it lulled you to sleep too! Hard to imagine a condo building getting any closer to the water either because the base is sitting in sand and the waves are within about 30'.

VERY COMFORTABLE AND WELL-APPOINTED CONDO

  • 5 of 5
This was our third condo rental in this same building over a five year period and this time, my wife and I stayed for over six weeks in this unit. We appreciate this location for the un-crowded sandy beach and the quality and affordability of the accommodations, all of this far enough from Waikiki for a more relaxed vacation, with all essential services available in the vicinity.
The listing description was accurate and the property is clean and well maintained. The view from the lanai is breathtaking and during most of our stay, we were lucky enough to observe many turtles, dolphins, whales and awesome sunsets. The surf was quite high sometimes, but we were comfortable for swimming and snorkeling almost every day, right in front of the condo.
The owner was very helpful and dedicated to make our stay enjoyable. All the amenities provided are of great quality and the list is very complete. The wi-fi internet connection, cable TV, long distance phone service provided were all thoughtful attentions. The leather recliners in the living room and the king size bed are high quality furniture and very comfortable.
We were very satisfied with our stay in this condo and will definitely recommend it to our friends.

HAWAII THE WAY IT USED TO BE...BEAUTIFUL BEACH WITHOUT THE CROWDS.

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I came here to get away from the crowds of Waikiki (Been there, done that) and had the best vacation ever! We woke up to sound of the ocean and the fresh sea breezes which helped the stress melt away. We made fresh mango smoothies while we watched the turtles swim back and forth along the beach. This side of Oahu is so beautiful and much less crowded than in Waikiki and worth the extra time to drive here.(30 min) The beach is semi-private, wide open and seems rarely used for its beauty, no fighting over where to place your towels or umbrella. After spending a few days on the beach in front of the condo, we decided to drive to Ko' Olina, around 10 miles down to road to go swimming in the calm lagoons.(4 different ones) This is where Disney just built their new "Aulani" hotel. Ko' Olina is a nice change of pace in that it provides a little more excitement without the crowds of Waikiki. There are great restaurants to enjoy and the grounds around the hotels are nice to take an after dinner stroll.

It took a day or two to get into the groove and get our bearings, but after that we were veterans and had our routine down. 1. Picked fresh Plumeria in the neighborhood for the balcony vase. 2. Bought fresh fish to grill on the BBQ at sunset. 3. Made fresh ground Kona coffee and mango smoothies to start our day. 4. Made sure to catch the Sunset every night from the balcony. I know you will find your own rhythm but feel free to use mine. Just in case you wanted to check in on reality, there is free Wi-Fi access, but I tried my best to avoid it, we were on vacation after all! :)

Thanks Eileen! It was a great place and we have wonderful memories.

FUN IN THE SUN

  • 4 of 5
This was out first time on Oahu and the beach and water are beautiful, even better than Maui. Weather was perfect. The owner (Eileen) was extremely helpful with any of our needs. The kitchen was small ,but was stocked with more essentials (incuding some food) than any place we have ever stayed. We really enjoyed being lulled to sleep by the surf on the beach. We always slept with the door to the Lanai open. Security is outstanding.
It was nice being away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. We only went once. Traffic was awful.
Mahalo Eileen. We had a great time.

MARCH 2012 STAY

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I spent a week at this cute condo. The complex is home to some year-rounders as well as snow birds who spend months at a time getting away from their winter homes on the mainland and Canada. The owner of the condo, Eileen, made sure we had everything possible to make our stay comfortable. We saw whales and turtles from our balcony and enjoyed the warm beach and water. I would recommend this rental if you are looking to stay on the sunny side of Oahu and want a beautiful, uncrowded, quiet beach vacation. Thank you Eileen!

SO HAPPY WE STAYED HERE!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I recently spent a week in Hawaii for our anniversary and we were extremely happy with our stay at Makaha Beach Cabanas. The drive from Honolulu may take 30 minutes but it’s well worth the time it takes to get to the solitude and semi-private feel of this beach.
We originally planned to stay in the Waikiki area but are so happy we instead chose "the road less traveled". Avoiding the congestion and crowds of being in town helped us relax and soak in the incredible beauty of the leeward side of Oahu.
The gated complex is safe and secure with an incredible view from both the lanai and the front door. I loved falling asleep each night to the sound of waves on the beach, just a few yards from our bed. The availability of beach chairs, body boards, and many other amenities made the value of this rental so much better than any hotel room. In addition, the personal touch of the owner and her efforts to make our stay as memorable as possible really added to the experience. She was easy to contact and very responsive.
Everything is "as advertised" and the bottom line to our experience is simply this - we look forward to doing it again someday soon!

Map

Car: recommended

A pristine sandy beach awaits you in this secluded area of Oahu. Makaha is a 32 mile drive from the airport and about 40 minutes from the congestion and noise of Waikiki. If you've been there, done that, this is now the place for you. Tranquil as can be, yet only 20-40 minutes to the action! A car is recommended to get around, however, 'The Bus' has been continuously ranked one of the best transportation systems in the USA... and it stops just in front. The 7-11 mini-store is a 1 min. drive or a 6 min. walk. The local mall is a 6 min. drive. There you'll find a Tamura Supermarket, Longs Drug Store, Starbucks, Jamba Juice and other local places to eat, etc., rent a bike, kayak, snorkel gear, etc. Many other attractions nearby; the Water Park, the new Disney Resort and swimming lagoons in Ko-Olina, 2 golf courses in Makaha, 1 in Ko-Olina, & 1 in Kapolei & more island wide plus Pearl Harbor, Aloha Stadium Swap Meet, Polynesian Cultural Center, Ala Moana Mall & much more!

Other Activities: Hiking, Kayaking, Group Ukulele Playing, Karaoke, Dancing, Board Game Playing, Card Playing etc/

Golf: Hawaii is a golfer's paradise. 2 courses right in Makaha 5 minutes from the condo, another in Ko-Olina which is only 15 minutes away, and another in Kapolei 20 minutes faway from your oceanfront condo. Famed Kahala Resort (home of the Sony Open), plus many others, including military courses all over the island (NavyMarine, Hickam, etc.)
