Overview

Oahu Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath Sleeps 2-4 + one infant

Enjoy views of the nearby Ocean and the steep Waianae Mountains while relaxing in our Comfortable Island Furniture. Experience the Beautifully Manicured Grounds, swim in the 2 Pools, relax in the Jacuzzi, exercise at the Basketball & Tennis courts.

5 minutes away by car, you can soak up the sun on a White-Sand Beach in comfortable Tommy Bahama Lawn Chairs under an Over-Sized Umbrella. Snorkel with the Turtles, and if you are lucky, the Dolphins off the reef at Makaha or Po'Kai Beach, will swim with you.

For the Golfer, there is an Exceptionally beautiful golf course where the management will happily rent you clubs. You and your guests may sit down to a Delicious Meal at our large table that seats 6 or more or just work a Cross Word or Jigsaw Puzzle. 42' flat screen WV, WiFi available and Netflix capability in living room and 32' in the main bedroom for your pleasure.

Further Details: Each room has a ceiling Fan that works in combination with the louvered windows, to cool each room allowing the Trade Winds to gently blow through the condo in typical Island Fashion. One bedroom has a ''sweet'' King Size bed, 2 Side tables with lamps, a Granite Topped 4 Drawer Dresser with a 32'' Flat screen TV. The second Bedroom has 2 Twin Beds with Antique Island Headboards and a small chest between the beds with a pineapple lamp. All our walls are tastefully decorated with Island Art that further compliments the decor. You will be able to rest in peace knowing you have 24 security.

About The Owners: We are from Oregon. We love our Ocean, but prefer more sun. After visiting Hawaii several times, we discovered how invigorated we were by the Sunny Leeward side of Oahu. The surf at Makaha Beach can be calm and fun place to play or have dangerous waves that are so interesting to watch as surfers brave the immense waves. Recently, we tried Paddle Boarding at Po'Kai Beach while turtles and dolphins played right next to the surf board. We have many hikes and bicycle rides left to do in the Makaha area. We love the Saturday Morning Market (get there early), pick up fresh vegetables, fish for dinner, and coffee for breakfast . The Waianae Area feels like old Hawaii. We hope you will enjoy Makaha Valley Plantation as much as we do! Mark and Christina, Eugene, Oregon.

Why the Owner Chose Makaha: We wanted to be 'off the beaten path'. We had spent time in a small village south of Puerto Vallarto, Mexico for a number of years, but we found that there were too many obstacles to really get to know the people and the culture. But living in Makaha, life is pretty quiet but you can still get into Honolulu within 1 hour. Ko'Olina, 20 minutes provides wonderful swimming lagoon and and world class dining. We have only owned our condo since February 2011, but we have already made many new friends at the Makaha Village Plantation. People are very open and friendly.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:

We really enjoyed Swimming in the pool and watching the Kids play. In the evening we relax under a clear star-lit sky in the Jacuzzi. I love to Sit and Read and Watch the Peacocks, ducks, and many different birds and wildlife. We have spent many hours snorkeling off the reef at Makaha Beach and the little turtle beach at Aki Cove. Our relatives have enjoyed swimming with the dolphins at Maku

A great place to stay with all of the ametities!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at this condo! When it says, "Fantastic Ocean View"; it really is the truth! The pictures that are available on Home Away for this condo does not do it justice! We had enough snorkel gear, closet space, dishes & cooking wear, beach towels, dvd players & movies, a place to do laundry so we didn't have to pack too much, boogie boards, coffee maker, toaster, blender, you name it. It was a comfortable & clean place and perfect for all of our needs. We also appreciated a 3-ring binder that explained the rules of the house and surrounding beaches and restaurants to visit.

Thank you Christina & Sheryl!!!

Very Clean and secure

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed our stay here. In a secure setting where the beach is only 5 mins away. The owner is very responsible and was there immediately when we needed something. I would recommend anyone to stay there. I would stay there again.

Nice place

  • 4 of 5

Other than the roosters (which are uncontrollable in Hawaii) it was a very nice place to stay. Lovely ocean view and far enough away from the craziness known as Waikiki Beach. Would stay there again.

Great security

  • 5 of 5

I loved the gated community. It provided a feeling of security to have to go through an always, attended gate. Any issue we had was addressed. I agree that the commute anywhere was "trying" at best, but we managed. Makaha Beach is just beautiful. After visiting other areas on the island, we decided Makaha Beach is the place to visit.

Christina was very sweet :) Loved talking to her and to Sheryl.

Perfect for us visiting family close by, not far from lovely beaches and wonderful views!

  • 4 of 5

The property had many extras available to make a memorable beach holiday without having to bring everything yourself (beach chairs, umbrella, snorkeling gear etc). The winter time is perfect here with lovely breezes and fans being sufficient. Not sure how it would be in mid summer with no AC. Also on 3rd floor, so need to be relatively mobile! There are many lovely peacocks and hens around, and with the roosters crowing in the early morning, earplugs might be necessary!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Julie. We strive to make our condo as home like as possible and appreciate your review. We are working on the Air Conditioning issue. It is not the cost of the air conditioner that is the problem, but the cost of the electricity. According to our guestbook, our guests have always enjoyed the breezes that are lovely 99% of the time. However, on the occasion their not comfortable, it would make their stay less than ideal.We hope to see you in the future.
