Overview

Waianae Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps up to 5

Enjoy your vacation at the Makaha Valley Plantation. Welcome to the quite side of Oahu. This secluded condominium complex is nestled in the gorgeous Makaha Valley just below the majestic Waianae Mountain Range on the west (sunnyside) coast located in an area that is outside of the busy tourist areas of the island. With ocean aplenty and wide open beaches! Come stay where the sun sets!

The airport is 40 minutes away. Shopping, commercial restaurants, movie theaters, the well-known Ko'Olina Resort featuring the 'Paradise Cove Luau', even a water park for the kids is a short 20 minute drive. Local restaurants, grocery stores, and fast food (McDonald's, Burger King, Pizza Hut, Subway, etc.) are 5 minutes away. If you want to visit Waikiki Beach (39miles) North Shore (56miles) with its famous Polynesian Culture Center, or any of the other wonderful sites on the island it’s an easy drive from Makaha.

Within two miles you will find two championship golf courses. Year round surfing for all ability levels at the famous Makaha beach 1 mile away. It is legendary and is host to professional surf meets throughout the winter season. Within five miles at the Waianae Harbor you can schedule big game fishing, snorkel trips, diving, and whale watching. Come see the whales breaching offshore (December through March). Throughout the year the swimming, snorkeling, diving, kayaking, deep sea fishing or spearfishing are wonderful, with turtles and dolphins making regular visits to our local beaches. Some favorite times to visit are mango season (June - August), when the snorkeling at Makaha is divine; December - February, for the sun and watching surfers, and any other time for the hiking, clean air and sun. For a nature lover, this is probably the best part of Oahu, there are miles of biking/hiking along the coast or mountains right outside the condo for you to explore (including a 17th century heiau temple) a must see on your stay.

The community offers many amenities. Twenty-four hour gated/guarded entry, 2 swimming pools, kiddy pools, Jacuzzi, BBQ areas, basketball, coin op laundry, management office offers fax & copy service. The landscaping is plentiful and is well taken care of. Many gorgeous peacocks and birds call the plantation home, they roam the grounds freely and if you are lucky will find a peacock feather as a souvenir.

The condo itself is a two bedroom unit on the third (top) floor, with an expansive view of the ocean and Makaha Valley itself, as well as the mountains. Our condominium has just been remodeled. The designer kitchen is gorgeous, everything you would need to whip up that gourmet meal or a quick snack after a fun day at the beach, hiking or sightseeing. The woodwork is beautiful...and let’s not forget the remodeled bathroom. Can we just say this condo takes things to a new level of beauty! 3 ceiling fans. Our condo comes with wifi and cable TV. It is furnished with a queen bed in master bedroom and a twin/full bunk combination. As well as additional floor pads for kids if needed. Keys exchanged by lock box. The bus stops at the gates of the complex but a car is recommended. Free parking space. Non-smoking.

We provide beach towels, snorkel equipment, boogie boards, beach umbrella and tent, kids sand tools, baby stroller, tour books and maps ...and much more……what more can you ask for at this price?

This is a very special place to us, because it is very peaceful and comfortable. It’s all about the view………Come enjoy our piece of paradise!

Beautiful Views

  • 5 of 5

The condo was superb. It had everything required. Beautiful views. The pool was great for cooling off in. The property is quite and this is so away from the tourist section of the island. If it is peace and quite you are looking for this is the place to be. Being on the 3rd floor helped with the breeze and is what allowed the spectacular view of the ocean. This is for sure a home away from home. :)

Good Combination

  • 5 of 5

The Condo is a great value. It is nicely appointed. It's like staying at a friends house. Everything you need is there for making the stay comfortable and fun. I was pleasantly surprised that it had beach chairs, umbrella, snorkeling gear, etc. The pool was nice as well.

Very nice and well maintained property.

  • 5 of 5

The property was just as described on the web site. We had a great time and had no problems with the property. I would not hesitate to rent this property again. Very peaceful part of the island, the locals were very helpful. With finding less busy beaches and local food.

This was the perfect place for our family of 5! Very relaxing and peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful property. My family will definitely return if this place is available in the future. Very safe and quiet area with one of the Oahu's best beaches just down the road. The place had all the amenities with plenty of chairs and snorkeling gear. We spent most of our days at the beach and by evening it was very relaxing to come to a comfortable place with a great view. I don't think the pictures do this place justice, but maybe that's good as I don't want this secret to get out as it will crowd the opportunity to book it in the future.

If you are looking for the busy part of the island with lots of restaurants and shopping, this isn't your place, but if you want a place that is close to paradise with few crowds and friendly locals, you can't ask for better. I love Makaha and the scenic mountains to the east of the condo. We had cool breeze in the evening that help keep the place cool along with A/C if you needed it. Peacocks roam the property freely and the pool and Jacuzzi were great additions at the end of the day. We went for a hike towards the mountains to find an old Hawaiian temple ruin which was a little hidden treasure of itself.

We can't wait to go back and the owners were great to work with even when we needed a little extra stay due to our late flight departure. Please check out this side of the island. This is only about a mile from the end of the highway. We then hiked the 2.1 miles along the coast until we hit the northwest tip of the lower island with fantastic views of the ocean. We found a nice blowhole through the lava rock coastline along with old railroad track where it had washed out in the late 40's. If you need a break and relaxation, you have found it. You will have sunny weather more often in Makaha than anywhere else on the island. Snorkeling was great with a variety of fish and turtles.

The condo has everything needed including dishwasher! A washer and dryer unit is a short walk across from the unit. We never had a problem washing or drying our clothes due to crowding. There are some small town favorite restaurants including fast food down the road, but we chose to shop at Costco or other grocery stores and prepared our food at the condo. Again, the photos don't do justice for this place. Best location on Oahu in my opinion. We ventured to other areas as well without problem.

Thanks again for a 10 day stay in paradise!

Property is well located and exactly as described with lovely ocean views

  • 4 of 5

Property was very easy to get into, the property manager met us at the apartment and went through everything we needed to know. It looked exactly the same as the pictures and was clean and tidy. It is very well equipped with everything you need in the kitchen, huge fridge, great upright stove and oven.

The lounge and bedding was comfortable. The bathroom is quite small, but perfectly adequate for three or four people and has quite a large shower.

The amenities at the village are great - the pool and spa is lovely after being at the beach for the day and it is all maintained extremely well by the friendly staff who were always happy to help. The chickens and peacocks were also fun to watch and listen to from the balcony, and you look over lovely trees and the breeze is great. Free wifi was also a big hit, as was the supplied snorkelling gear, boogie boards and beach towels.

Food shopping was easy at Tamura Supermarket and the staff were really friendly and helpful too.

Would definitely recommend this place to anyone, but although there is a bus that goes from outside the door all the way to Honoulu regularly, I think you really need a car to see the area properly.

Lives up to expectations

  • 4 of 5

The property was as advertised and offers a very economical, pleasant place to stay on the island, far away from big city life. The condo felt like a little treehouse overlooking the valley, and was only a few minutes drive from the beach and was clean, comfortable, and homey. The kitchen included lots of condiments and other necessities (keep this in mind before you grocery shop!), and there was tons of beach gear for our use. We actually loved being away from the bustle of Honolulu, but be warned that entertainment/restaurant options are limited, and the highway gets very congested during rush hour. There's no central air conditioning in the unit, so it did get quite hot during the day, but a standalone fan/cooling unit helped to alleviate most of the heat. Overall it was a very pleasant stay, we were extremely comfortable, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
