Oahu 2016

  • 3 of 5

Janie was very helpful and welcoming in planning our trip, excellent customer service! It was nice to be able to stay in a 2 bedroom condo and have a separate living room and kitchen. The kids loved swimming in the pool. Janie had everything you needed to have a fun day at the beach, including chairs, towels, boogie boards, and sand toys. The condo was in a quiet area and was very clean. We had to do a lot of traveling to get to other places because it is in the town of Waianae on the west side which is far from the tourist areas. It is a very local area and seems a little run down. Makaha beach is very close to the condo and is beautiful, unfortunately we weren't able to swim in it due to the high waves this time of year. We did drive up the coast not far from the condo and saw several dolphins jumping in the water which was cool. We really enjoyed the Polynesian Cultural Center and learned a lot about the Polynesian culture. The show "Breathe of Life" in the evening was excellent. We had fun swimming at Lagoon 4 in Ko Olina.

Owner's Response: Oahu's west side offers sunshine & sunsets, tranquil beaches and a lovely retreat at our Makaha Get Away. Our first winter ocean swell rolled in early this year. The wave action at Makaha was not ideal this past week for younger swimmers. Fortunately, we have Pokai Bay, and the protected beach cove at KoOlina that offer the perfect alternative. Each shoreline has something different to offer. We love to work with guests to offer ideas to maximize your stay. Mahalo for your kind comments, Tiffany & family. It will be our pleasure to see you again soon!

Fantastic stay at a lovely condo!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this rental condo. It has everything you need for a delightful stay on the amazing island of Oahu.

The condo was secure, well stocked and there were a great many home comforts such as Netflix, great wireless broadband and kitchen supplies. We also made good use of the wide range of beach equipment, umbrellas chairs, cool box, goggles, snorkles etc etc. There was everything you needed!! Rooms were clean, air conditioning units were installed in the rooms as well as ceiling fans in all rooms. All of the above came in very handy in the amazing Hawaii weather!

The property itself is situated on a development along the West Coast, a great beach not 5 minutes drive away, and close enough to all the sights and sounds of the island, but at the same time being peaceful, quiet and well away from the hustle and bustle.

Many thanks to Janie and Sonny for the use of their property, their communications before, during and after our stay, everything ran so smoothly!! It was a pleasure to stay there and it is certainly on our list of places to revisit......if only it was at the end of our road and not 16 hours away by air!!!!

Owner's Response: We are so pleased the whole Miller family enjoyed every minute, snorkeling and soaking up the sun on this great family vacation. You covered a lot of miles from UK. It was certainly our pleasure hosting you in our home, to cool off after a hot summer day, and enjoy the wonderful comforts of home. We look forward to serving you again next year. Mahalo~ Janie

Peaceful, spacious, clean, and well stocked!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I along with our three kids had a great weak at the Makaha Get Away. The owners where very easy to communicate with and we had no stress about the check in process. The condo itself is great for a family, two bedrooms with a king in one and queen + full in the other. They had the condo stocked with all the necessity's plus any thing you might imagine bringing to the beach. What a blessing the beach equipment was for our family. We where able to thoroughly enjoy the beautiful island of Oahu on a modest budget.

Thank you Janie Jo and Sonny!

wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week long stay at this location. Makaha Beach is only 5 minutes drive down the hill. It is a very peaceful and quiet beach, especially in the morning and as we were snorkeling we saw plenty of colorful fish. We also tour boats from Waikiki, they provide tours from Waikiki to the Makaha beach to see "untouched waters of Makaha and great snorkeling".

Janie was a great host, anticipating our questions and responding to calls and texts very quickly. The property was very clean and had everything you need in the condo, beach gear, snorkeling, towels etc. Air-conditioning in every room was great, because it would probably get a little stuffy without it. Hope to return some day.

We welcome your return next year. ~ Sonny & Janie

Spacious, clean, warm and cozy as well as conveniently located

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented Janie's property for our son who is in the military. His ship was in port and after a long deployment we wanted to offer him an opportunity to stay in a nice place instead of having to stay aboard ship. Janie was phenomenal. She was very accessible, accommodating and kept in constant contact with me. My son was extremely happy with Janie's property. He said there was plenty of room, it was clean, had all the amenities you could possibly need and was right near the ocean. He was able to take advantage of some of the activities that Janie suggested as well. To say the least we were all more than satisfied with Janie's property and would recommend it to anyone. We are going to Hawaii for Pearl Harbor Day in December. We will definitely be renting (if available) Janie's property again. Don't miss the opportunity if are there. You won't regret it. Thank you again Janie for making our son's visit memorable and enjoyable. We couldn't have asked for anything more.

Clean, Kitchen Fully Loaded, A/C was super Wonderful, Extra measure of Kindness

  • 5 of 5

Dear Janie,

It was very clean, well prepared for the families. Janie was caring, kind, responded questions immediately, fabulous to work with.

I asked if she had a rice cooker? Later I found that she already had one + Janie bought another rice cooker in case we, oriental family need more rice for each meal.

We had son's wedding and family from Germany, NY, Korea, gather together enjoyed stay in this condo complex- stayed in hotel regret that they would stay in Makaha V. Plantation condo next time. Some enjoyed hiking mountain side - used sun tan cream, 2 backpack, hat, even OFF repellent etc. We enjoyed outdoor swimming pool, BBQ. and Water sports Ocean side, We really enjoyed our stay at Makaha Valley Resort. We will definitely return to it someday soon I hope.

I give you 5 stars with appreciation for all you did for us! Keep up the good work and see you again!

아들의 결혼을 축복하며 독일, 미국,한국 등지에서 친척, 가족들이 모이는데, 다른 친척들이 호텔에 묶었던것을 후회하며 다음에는 Makaha Condo Resort로 오겠다고 하네요. 콘도 안에 많은 필요한것들 준비되어 있어서 좋아들 했습니다. 하이킹, 수상 스포츠, 야외 의자들, 아이스박스, 아이들 소꿉장난감들까지 모두 있어요.

친절하고, 질문하면 답변이 바로 바로 왔어요. 밥솥이 있느냐 물었는데 이미 있는 밥솥+ 새 밥솥을 사놓았더라고요.

혹시 여러식구들 밥의 분량이 모자를까봐 새 밥솥을 준비한 마음, 그리고 모든 친절함에 놀랐고 감사했어요.

다음에도 마카하벨리 콘도를 찾아올것이며, 또 친구들에게 강력 추천합니다.
