About christina svarverud
We love our beautiful Coastline in Oregon, but feel more invigorated with Hawaii's winter sun. The surf at Makaha Beach can be calm and fun to play in the waves or dangerous and interesting to watch surfers braving the immense winter surf. Recently, we tried Paddle Boarding at Po'kai Beach while turtles and dolphins played right next to the surfboard. We have many hikes and bicycle rides left to do in the Waianae area. We love the Saturday Morning Market in Waianae. It feels like old Hawaii. We hope you will enjoy Makaha Valley Plantation as much as we do! Mark and Christina, Eugene, Oregon
christina svarverud purchased this Condo in 2011
Why christina svarverud chose Waianae
We wanted to be 'off the beaten path' love the History of Hawaii and many beautiful beaches. Living in Makaha, life is pretty quiet but you can still get into a huge city within 1 hour if you want more excitement and world class dining. We find the availability of fresh local fish, poke, fruit and vegetables enhance our diet. The hiking, biking, SUP, snorkeling are excellent. We have made many friends at the Makaha Valley Plantation. People are very open and friendly.
What makes this Condo unique
We immediately fell in love with the view from our condo and impulsively purchased it. Having close access to unusual hiking and water sports nearby has been ideal. We are so happy that we can meet other interesting travelers and locals from around the world in the Jacuzzi's on property. I love the Peacocks and wildlife on the well manicured lawns that make this property unique.

Great stay in Makaha
We really enjoyed our stay at Makaha Valley plantation. Perfect for our family of three. Spent our days hiking near by or at Makaha and Pokai beaches. Also ventured out to Lanikai and Waimea. Had to cut our holiday short because of would conditions and the owner was more than helpful in doing so. Would love to return or recommend to others.
The stairs are well worth the view on 3rd floor!
Thank you for letting us stay in your condo.
Very nice condo, poor location
Renting was fine....Manager not so much, day 2/3 our main TV had NO INPUT, thus no TV let MANAGER (cleaning lady ) know, we were met with I'm riding my motorcycle, I'm at the beach, and I gave my car to friends, so wont be there until after you leave....the bedroom TV works, but the R hand side is dull (needs to be replaced)....couldn't walk to beach, closest store was 2 miles away 7-11, so your stuck out in the boonies...Complex is well kept and you feel secure.
It is a well equipped property, nice pool, however there is no fitness center available and their is no washer/dryer in the condo. The property is a bit noisy early in the morning as a number of property residents are up early going to work.
I am sorry that you were surprised by the lack of laundry facilities in the condo. They are available in the laundry building about 150 ft away. I think our price fairly represents the amenities available. We strive to provide an excellent assortment of amenities that other guests have appreciated. In regards to the noise in the parking lot, as the owner I will talk to security about the posted quiet hours between 9pm and 9am. However, you are visiting the hawaiian islands that have their own culture and norms and they are frustrated with short term rentals. I sincerely hope you enjoyed your vacation. Christina
The property and Unit were well taken care of and relaxing. Every amenity was available for use. Laundry services were a bit of a pain with having to recharge your card at the main office and then use the facilities back down by your unit. Not very convenient and cost effective. Other then that, beautiful island and relaxing stay at the condo and property:)
