About Pam

Living on a beach and falling asleep to the sounds of the surf had always been my dream. I took one look at the view from this lanai and said YES, this is it! I am airline crew (41 years with UA, Flight Attendant/Purser based out of SFO), so I actually use my condo in between guests. There is no other place on the planet I want to be, but I love sharing it with others just as much! This condo has been a win/win for me since the day I bought it, being able to enjoy it whenever possible and being able to share it with good folks like you, too! I am a sailor and a diver, and have traveled extensively all over the world, but this beach is truly special (The mermaids in the condo have come from my travels, so just ask, every one of them have a story!) Please know how welcome you would be to my home, and how much I look forward to welcoming you to this special spot! Welcome "home"!

Pam purchased this condo in 2004

Guestbook comments from the owner

This letter was sent to me from a recent guest. I wish to include it here. We just never know the opportunities we have to touch someone's heart. This is a reminder to me, of how grateful I am to have this condo to share with others. Thanks, Meagan, for taking the time to share your thoughts.Hello Pam-My name is Megan Kalberg. We stayed with you at the end of March into April just recently. My father, Floyd Kalberg, was the one that coordinated the entire vacation. We also got the opportunity to meet you as you were on your way out. I’m hoping you remember us... I know he sent you family pictures... We are from Minnesota.I am not interested in renting a condo, but knew that this was the best way to contact you.I would just like to personally say thank you for letting us stay that week. I'm assuming that father told you that he had stage 3 colon cancer when we went and that was his reward for completing chemotherapy. Our trip to your condo was our last family vacation. Just before we were leaving we had gotten word that his cancer had spread to his abdomen. He was determined to go and enjoy himself. And that he did, we all did. Upon our return we spent many, many hours in the hospital and going through various appointments. The cancer did spread but they still were confident they were getting it all. He was now at stage 4. He had begun chemotherapy once a week, every week. At the end of July we went out of town leaving him home with other members of the family because he told us to go. While we were gone, they decided they were going to do surgery. That is when we got the call. There was nothing more that they could do to help him. They gave him days. We brought him home for in home hospice, and on August 11th, 2008 he completed this leg of his journey.Your condo truly gave us our last family vacation. We enjoyed every moment of our trip. We would wake up and spend breakfast on the lanai just laughing and joking. We even got to see whales jumping (and got pictures). We swam with the turtles, every moment truly was paradise. So thank you again. You gave us so many memories, that truly was the last time he was up and about, after that he was pretty much in the hospital bedridden. When he was home we had pictures from our trip up and everyone commented on how amazing they were. I know I have said it already but thank you, truly from the bottom of my heart. Thank you.I took well over 2,000 pictures and we

Simply Amazing Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

My niece and I traveled to Oahu for her 30th birthday. After much deliberation, we chose Pam's condo in Makaha. It could not have been a more excellent choice. Pam was wonderful to deal with, replying promptly to my various questions and giving us so much wonderful information about the condo and the area. The condo is even more beautiful than the pictures show, and that lanai...I have no adequate description for the view from it. We spent HOURS out there- watching the waves, the surfers, the turtles, the spouting humpback whales, the boats, the morning sunbeams playing on the turquoise waves as it rose over the condo, and the stunning display it created as it dropped down into the ocean in the evening. It was lovely to fall asleep to and wake up to the sound of the crashing waves.

We both enjoy cooking, so we had stopped for groceries on our way from Honolulu to Makaha (we rented a car). We were very happy with the various cooking and dining supplies Pam has used to stock the kitchen, and were able to enjoy our own meals on the lanai. The view makes good food even more delicious! :) We even used the lovely gas grill down in the common area one night.

The bed in the condo was very comfortable, and the shower is amazing. The condo is tiny, but the layout, the mirrors and windows and doors, and Pam's bright mermaid theme all work together to create a bright, breezy feel. I appreciated the security of knowing that our rental car was safe inside a locked gate, and that the condo had limited access. Also, even with as large as the Cabanas is, I heard practically no noise from neighbors above, below, or an either side. Everyone was so helpful and respectful of others.

The beach in front of the condo would collect a few people as the day progressed, but compared to the crowded eastern shore beaches we typically visit, this one felt like we had the place all to ourselves! The waves here are larger than we're used to, but the Ko'olina lagoons are not far; we went swimming there one afternoon. However, those large waves were an attraction that took us to the North Shore several times, just to watch the surfers.

Traffic can be awful, but we were aware of that when we chose this location. We went on several day trips, but spent most of our time at the condo or the local attractions like Ka'ena Point, where we saw albatross, seals, and lots of whales. Our stay here was nothing short of amazing, and we both have so many lovely memories. Thank you, Pam!!

Shangri-La in Makaha

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this wonderful condo unit for over a month. Lucky us! Pam was a lovely person to deal with; kind, generous and friendly. The condo was outfitted extremely well with quality items and beautiful things. I would say it is the best VRBO we have ever stayed in. The highlight was the the amazing view from the lanai. We spent hours out there. We watched the absolutely gorgeous sunsets almost every night and must have taken 300 photos. We had breakfast out there every morning. From the lanai we also saw dolphins, large sea turtles and humpback whales. The beach in front is a hidden gem and is never, ever crowded.We have stayed on the Waianae Coast several times over the last 38 years and love the area because it is on the leeward side which means sunny and dry. We often drove a short distance to Pokai Beach where the water is very calm for swimming. There is an interesting heiau there to explore, too. Yokohama Beach at the end of the road is wild and beautiful and the hike to see the albatross reserve at Kaena Point is well worth it. We loved the Sat. morning market behind Long's Drugstore where fresh organic veggies among other things could be purchased. We highly recommend Kahumana Rest.on an organic farm on Lualualei Homestead Rd. We can't say enough about the wonderful time we had there. Mahalo, Pam!!

Family memories that will last a lifetime!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is exactly what I expected and more. Pam is an amazing owner who allows strangers like me and my family (wife, 1 year old, 9 year old) to enjoy what she calls her "little piece of paradise" and that's exactly what it was.

At first I was a little hesitant only because I've never done a transaction like this but when I emailed Pam and asked to speak with her, she made this the most smoothest, easiest, comforting transaction I've done. She answered all my questions and really made me feel at ease knowing that I'm not dealing with just any regular renter. She was well organized and had all the details about proceeding with the transaction as clear as can be.

Then to top it off, when I got to her condo, the view from the lanai (patio) was breathtaking. The amenities were exactly what she stated on the website and the pictures didn't do the condo justice. It really is a home away from home because Pam's condo has the pots, pans, plates, silverware, coffee maker, beach chairs, dvd players, iPod speakers, etc. that you need to make your stay as comfortable as possible. You definitely have to experience this condo for yourself.

My family and I slept every night with the sliding door open listening to the waves crash. Then waking up in the morning with my cup of coffee, sitting on that lanai, and watching the, I just want to go back.

The only downside is the drive to the condo but I knew that going into this. I wanted a location where I can take the kids to the "resorty" side of Hawaii but still enjoy the "beachy" side of Hawaii. To have the beach as my own "semi-private" beach was amazing. Since not too many tourists come to the Makaha side, the only people that are at this beach are those staying at the only 2 condos on this side of town (there is another high-rise condo next door).

Overall, I would definitely recommend Pam and her lovely place to anyone and would definitely rent her place again as she is an amazing host. Thank you Pam for allowing my whole family to enjoy such a clean, well-kept, cozy condo that you have.

I can't believe I've waited this long to write our review. Especially since I've thought of our time there almost every day since. We had an amazing time. The best of our times were spent at the condo. The kids thought of the beach as their own, and that is exactly how it felt. Such a secluded and spoiled feeling. We checked out all the tourist spots (with little regret) but we just could not wait to get back to this piece of paradise. The condo had everything and I can't wait to go back! This time with my sisters!

Mahalo Pam! You were absolutely fantastic to rent from
