About Robin Heath

Aloha! We are Robin and Aki - husband and wife who live, work, and play in beautiful Makaha. When we are not in the water surfing, we can be found working on our small fruit farm, Aloha Fruits. Robin works full-time as a public school teacher in Waianae.

Robin Heath purchased this condo in 2006

Why Robin Heath chose Mākaha Valley

This condo was our home for 6 years. Now we live a mile down the road! We truly feel like we are part of an undiscovered secret - Makaha and the leeward coast of Oahu are host to the best beaches in the state and the local families embrace the true meaning of Aloha.

Excellent stay! Family friendly and close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent place to stay while in Oahu! It is a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of Honolulu and enjoy Hawaii life. Friendly staff and we felt very safe in the complex. The apartment was clean and stocked with all the basics. The water toys were also a plus! The complex is close to the beach for surfing as well as a beach for swimming (calmer waters). Supermarket is close by as well as cool little surf shops. We would highly recommend this location!

A nice apartment, very quiet, out of the busy resorts

  • 4 of 5

Hi, if you prefer tranquility, nice beaches, not much else, then this is perfect. The apartment itself is spacious and well furnished, nicely decorated, with lots of shared amenities (pool, basketball and tennis fields). Some of the best beaches in the area (our prefered one was Maili, for the big waves). Nothing is very far in Oahu so enjoy!

Clean, comfortable, and out of the way

  • 4 of 5

If you want something out of the way & quiet, this is a good place. The condo is roomy & comfortable with everything you need, and there are nice uncrowded beaches nearby. There are beautiful peacocks, chickens, and tiny cats roaming the property so it's kind of fun. It's an hour drive from Honolulu though so be prepared for that. Tip - don't use gps directions - use the directions provided by Robin (the gps directions lead you to a locked emergency side gate).

Clean, all that we needed

  • 4 of 5

Arriving at Makaha Plantation late at night was easy and the security at night was cordial. The next day security asked where we were going and suggested a great place to eat, Hanara, YUM, we would have eaten there daily if we had time. Very local and huge portions of every type food you'd ever want. Also ate Countryside Cafe and loved the macadamia nut pancakes!!! Loading the laundry card was simple as was using the machines. There was quite a bit of needed construction ongoing, but it did not bother us. Not having a/c was a surprise - guess I missed that point, but it cooled off fine. I'd like to have a fan for the kitchen when cooking at night, though. Ample towels and beach towels and supplies. The area has a feral cat issue, which we noticed in other parts of Oahu. The kids and I loved the peacocks roaming. Mangoes fallen from the trees made for tasty treats - just need to beat the peacocks to them. The beaches nearby are lovely, just skirt the homeless and there are many areas to do so. The nearby Post Office is perfect for mailing home the large bags of chocolate covered macadamia nuts purchased at Costco. Our family liked being with the locals and not on Waikiki. The Aloha Spirit is alive at Makaha. Mahalo.
