Oceanview condo, up in the valley, just a 2 min drive to the beach! Our condo is a little dated, but the price reflects that- everything works. the condo is fully stocked, and the view is awesome! 60" TV, A/C in the living room, local landline phone and playpen/high chair (on request) are just some of the things our competition doesn't have!

Feel the aloha spirit as you watch gorgeous sunsets as wild peacocks stroll the grounds! Golf at world-class course next door, or the course at KoOlina 15 min away--- or take the bus that stops right in front of the complex gate to Waikiki! Hiking eco-trails, snorkeling, boogie boarding & of course just working on your tan are just some of the things you can do!

Complex has 2 pools, hot tubs, kiddie pools, tennis, basketball, & shuffleboard courts, & grilling picnic/BBQ areas! It's perfect for that member of the family who is not a 'beach' person!

Why Lee chose Mākaha Valley

We bought this place as a family, so that various family members could come with their kids and vacation. The two pools are great because we never have to worry if one might be closed for repairs. Our daughter lives ON ISLAND, right down the street, and can help you with problems 24/7!

Nice the peacocks

  • 4 of 5

My family enjoyed staying at this location. Its a bit of a drive from some of the activities, but its a good value, and the complex is nice and secure. We loved the peacocks calling in the morning time. Hope was very helpful in answering our questions. Thanks!

A wonderful home-away-from-home for an affordable island getaway!

  • 5 of 5

If you don't need to be in close proximity to Honolulu, have a car and are looking for a well-equipped, spacious condo at an affordable price, then look no further. This condo was all of that and more.

The condo itself was spacious, bright and airy, with wonderful breezes blowing through when the windows were open. It was well-equipped and had everything that we would have expected a property like this to have. For those times where we stayed in and/or for the evening hours, the living/dining area was wonderful and the kitchen was great for preparing meals at home. Both of the bedrooms were spacious and comfortable and made for wonderful sleeping because of the wonderful breezes through open windows.

The property it is part of, Makaha Valley Plantation, is a wonderful property. The pools were great for those times when we didn't want to head to the beach and the barbecue pits were an added plus for those times when we wanted to actually barbecue. The property was also good for nice evening walks, both inside the property and in the immediate vicinity of the property.

In the immediate area, there is a lot to do. There are a couple of fabulous beaches. Pokai Beach is really good if you have small kids who want to get in the water, as it is protected from the open ocean. Makaha Beach is even closer, a 5 minute drive, and is also fabulous, but is unprotected so caution is warranted depending on ocean conditions. However, it is a great beach and has some of the most spectacular sunsets we have ever seen. There are also a few good hikes in driving distant, including Kaena Point and the Westside Pillboxes in Maili.

As for dining on Waianae coast, while there are not a huge number of restaurants that we would recommend, we did enjoy Spinners Cafe at the Waianae harbor, Hannara Restaurat in Waianae, and Countryside Cafe in Maili. All good for casual meals for breakfast or lunch. Of course, Koolina and Kapolei are only 20-25 minutes away, with an abundance of dining options there. We did find ourselves having dinner at home most evenings and there are a couple of good supermarkets in Waianae (we usually went to Tamura's), as well as a Sack 'n Save in Nanakuli.

It does take around an hour to get into downtown Honolulu and sometimes traffic on the Waianae coast, particularly in the late afternoon, can get pretty heavy, so something to be aware of when planning a visit.

Overall, we had a wonderful time and highly recommend this property.

Comfy and economical with a nice view!

  • 5 of 5

This condo has everything you need for a family stay at an affordable price! Nothing fancy, but well appointed. Just a few minutes from the beach, and the pool is great. The owners are easy to get in touch with and very helpful. The place is decorated with kids in mind and is very safe. The beds are very comfy. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking. The huge TV is awesome. Plenty of beach stuff in the closet. The view is really nice--- serene trees and flowers, and ocean in the distance. We saved a lot of money staying here!

Great experience!!

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing getaway condo if you don't plan to go to Honolulu every day. The unit is equipped with everything you may need on vacation by the beach: bogey boards, snorkel, towel, even kids toys and tennis rackets. Kitchen is well equipped too with BBQ supplies.

Beach is a 20 min walk or 5 min ride. The waves are quite moderate but we found the water to be the warmest there comparing to the rest of the island!

Easy and honest owners to deal with.

feel home in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Everything you would wish for is in this nice clean condo. Enough room for a family of 5 ( 3 boys) . Toys, basketball, snorkeling gears, board.. no need to bring extra toys! Nice pool and super hot tub. Kids already had friends at the pool area. Hawaians are extremely friendly. Makaha is a nice place. The Makaha beach is one of the funniest beach we went. Had great fun in the waves, saw turtles. 5 min from condo. We had rented a car and went to a new beach everyday. Great way to explore this island. Must do the H1 and the Old Pali Dr. The Makaha Valley is one of the most beautiful place on the island. ( to my taste😊)

We were in *the tree top hideway* big thank's to the host.

Owner's Response: Aloha Julie! Thank you so much for this nice review! We try our best to make our guests happy and have a wonderful vacation, and we try to add the little "extras" in the condo for people whenever we can. Makaha is a rural and little-known area of the island, different from the regular tourist attraction areas, and we are so glad to share it with you and glad you liked it! Mahalo!
