About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 updated shower and bathroom Bath (Sleeps 2-3)

Recently remodeled condo with full-size gourmet kitchen and everything you could want or need to just sit back and relax. Linen's provided, security gated free parking off street. Secured access to entire facility with 24/7 security.

Awesome space for those who want a quiet time of relaxation while being only 45 minutes from the hustle and bustle of the Waikiki scene. Breath-taking sunsets and glorious moon-sets. Grab your beach chair and cold drink and take the elevator down to the beautiful yet isolated sandy beach. Our white sandy beach is the best kept secret on the island!

This condo is on the sunny side of the island better known as the Leeward side - NOT the rainy side called the windward side. Don't risk a vacation where you may or may not see the sun. Even when it is rainy in Honolulu, it is almost always sunny in Makaha. Beautiful spot - perfect for lasting memories! This has to be the paradise of a true Hawaiian experience.

There are also 2 newer BBQ's provided downstairs with coin operated laundry room and outgoing mail slots.

This area is not in the hub of busyness and offers beautiful white sand beaches waiting to be explored by you. Golfing is just two miles away with Ko Olina and Kapolei courses just 15 minutes away. We are located near the World famous Makaha Surfing beach with huge waves for the surfing competition every winter.

Waikiki is just 45 minutes away so you can explore during the day and return to your heavenly retreat in the evenings. Most of the time there is fewer than a handful of people on this beach called Turtle Cove.

Yes, come swim with the local giant turtles, snorkel with beautiful fish and watch for the whales swimming by (in Season) and if you're lucky a local monk seal might decide to join you and come ashore for an afternoon nap.

About Jim Cote

We are Jim and Cris Cote'. We live just 3 minutes from the Cabanas and are available to help with all of your needs.

Jim Cote purchased this condo in 2009

Why Jim Cote chose Oahu

Previous trips to Hawaii, we rented a hotel, but decided we wanted something more intimate. We found it. Our first experience at the Makaha Cabanas was when we rented a unit through VRBO. We instantly fell in love. Quiet, comfortable and stunningly beautiful. This truly is paradise on earth. You can't rent a hotel anywhere near as nice as this, nor anywhere as economical.

What makes this condo unique

This beach is truly a gem. Very few people. Sunny almost all the time. Whether you sip your morning coffee on the lanai or have a sunset dinner, our 3rd floor view makes you feel like you are right on the beach. Great surfing waves when surf is up. Good snorkeling area. Great view of the whales when they are here in Winter. Very comfortable condo unit for 2 - 3 people.Gourmet chef's kitchen saves you tons of money eating out, though you can still go into Waikiki or Kapolei for dinner at a nice restaurant. Truly the best value on the island. Memories for a lifetime.

Cleanliness an Issue

  • 1 of 5

I was very surprised at the cleanliness of the condo especially after reading the previous reviews. This condo was not very clean. I contacted the management company of the property and they were willing to refund a portion of our money if we wanted to look for another rental but we did not want to spend our vacation looking for another place to stay. They did offer to have the cleaning staff come back to clean again ( I did not want anyone in the rental while we were not there) but I had at this point already spent most of our first day buying cleaning supplies and cleaning the condo ourselves, at this point we had already bought our groceries and supplies for our vacation, after a 24 hour flight we did not want to think about moving to another location. The management company had asked if there was anything they could do, to this I asked if the cleaning fee could be taken off the rental but I was informed that they still had to pay to have it cleaned after we left. It was so bad even the lampshade in the living room had mold on it.

I'm a bit stumped to try to explain the incredible time we had on our trip. It was amazing! The ocean being so close was the best! Listening to the waves and feeling the the breeze sweep through the condo - it was just so cool! The place was clean and stocked with everything we needed and more. The only thing I can think of to make the trip better is to be there longer!

Cannot Wait To Go Back

  • 5 of 5

this was by far the best trip my wife and I have ever been on! the view was breathtaking and far surpasses anything we could have ever experienced at the large resorts. Sleeping with the sound of the waves just outside the window was one of my favorite and most relaxing parts. We spent most of our time lounging on the beach and swimming, but it was very nice to be able to walk just a few feet and be "home". We will definitely be returning and have already started to count the days.

So Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently stayed and DID NOT want to leave! The weather was perfect, and the beach is absolutely beautiful as well as the surrounding mountains. Very clean, quiet, and peaceful. This was our second stay at the cabanas and we don't plan on staying anywhere else next trip. There is always a nice breeze flowing and the sunsets are truly amazing. We can't wait to plan another visit!

Noisier than expected

  • 3 of 5

The condo was just like the pictures. It was very clean and well organized. We loved the view from the lanai and the sound of crashing waves at night. Everything that we needed was provided with the exception of peace and quiet. We stayed in the condo from January 17th to February 21st. The entire time we were there, there was repairs being made on the outside of the building. From 9 am to 3 pm every Monday thru Friday, the sound of drilling into concrete was constant. It was so loud that we had to leave the condo and go somewhere to escape the noise. We could not hear each other talk and could not hear the television. This construction had started in September, and we were not made aware that this would be an issue. If we had been informed, it may have made a difference in our plans. The front of the condo sits on a fairly well traveled road and in the evenings there were frequent sirens, along with barking dogs and almost constant crowing of roosters. These noises were more prominent due to need to keep windows open for ventilation. If it had not been for the noise issues, we would have had a great time.

Owner's Response: As the owner of this condo, we are one of many who must accept the rules and mandates of the condo association management. My wife and I were totally unaware that any repairs/construction was planned for our floor during this time. It is terribly unfortunate and we were equally distraught when we found out. But what are you going to do? The repairs must be done. We did not have a choice in this matter. As noted, the condo is located in a beautiful spot and fortunately for any new or returning guests who have enjoyed their stay, the good news is that the noise will soon end because the repairs will soon end and then back to paradise! Mahalo!

Relaxing and away from the hustle and bustle

  • 5 of 5

The condo was wonderful. We arrived right as a hurricane was hitting, yet when we got in and opened the storm shutters it was still super peaceful. We loved having the windows open all night and hearing the waves crash against the beach. The condo is in a great place on the island if you want to relax and just enjoy the beach and water. Many a morning was spent on the patio with our books and a cup of coffee. Loved it! We can't wait to go back!
