Family getaway for the Oganesov-Deans, Hacienda Heights
What does it tell you that the very evening we returned home from Kauai, we forfeited sleep to get on the computer to check the calendar for this condo in hopes that we might come back next year.
Though we entered the front door for the first time as vacation renters, it took only seconds for us to feel like invited guests in someone's lovely and comfortable home.
The condo is immaculate and cozy with wonderful art on the walls and great attention to detail in the decorating. Whoever put things together has a wonderful eye, and it humbled us that we should be entrusted with this amazing place during our visit. Further, whoever chose the furnishings has a great eye for beauty and great feel for quality and comfort. The web site photos, as nice as they are, just don't do justice to the reality.
Look at the photo of the lanai and the spray from the waves crashing on the rocks just a few feet away. That is a true photo, and we never tired of sitting out there to watch and listen. And, yes, to enjoy amazing sunsets. A special provision to enhance the enjoyment is the bar height table and chairs which makes it easy to look above and over the lanai railing. Once again, great attention to detail.
Others on the site have referred to the great location so I will not repeat all that. And Bud, along with other guests, has left a book full of suggestions on places to eat and visit.
Do NOT pass this rental up.....that is, unless you happen to want to come at the same time we do next year.....and the next.....and down the line.
On a practical note, the kitchen is very well stocked with plates, cookware, and utensels. There is a good sized washer/dryer, and we found plenty of detergent available. Beach mats and beach towels were also available.
The set-up was perfect for us--a group of six. My daughter and son-in-law took the master bedroom which has its adjoining bath. My friend and I shared the twin bedroom (and when there's a couple, those twins can be converted into a king). And my little grandsons shared the pull out sofa bed.
There is a nice pool/jacuzzi very near the condo, just a few steps away, and the boys, especially enjoyed that.
In our opinion, this unit at the Makahuena is one of the prime ones there. There is absolutely nothing between this condo and the ocean, so views are unimpaired. In all ways, this is a jewel of a find., and the owner is very accommodating and easy to work with.
