1 Bedroom with Ocean Views
About Robert Zavala
We live in the Bay Area of Northern California. I just retired after 30 years of service as a Deputy Sheriff. I still work part time. My wife is a retired Court Reporter who also works part time as a Proof Reader. We enjoy getting away to Hawaii whenever we get the chance. This is our first rental property, so any suggestions are appreciated.
Robert Zavala purchased this Condo in 2015
Why Robert Zavala chose Waianae
We purchased this property July of 2015 and renovated it from top to bottom. This unit was remodeled with all new flooring, cabinets, granite counter tops, appliances, and furniture. It has everything you need to enjoy your stay including all new cooking utensils, pots, pans, as well as beach gear including chairs, snorkeling gear, umbrella, towels, and boogie boards.
What makes this Condo unique
We love our unit because of its position within the Makaha Valley Towers Complex. Our unit is located in the 4th Core on the 11th floor which gives you a greater view of the ocean than units located in the other 3 Cores.

Great condo in a nice and unique setting
Condo unit was very clean, comfortable, beautifully decorated and thoughtfully well-equipped (beach gear was especially useful). Kitchen and bathroom were top-notch. The view was great and the setting is quiet, as you are tucked in between mountains, well back of the main road. Staff and neighbours in the building were friendly and helpful with local/insider tips about places to eat nearby (we really enjoyed Coquito's latin restaurant, Kahumana organic farm/cafe and Hannara Restaurant ). Makaha beach is literally at the end of the street and Kaena State Park is a short drive north, with a great hike path, otherwise the area itself is not touristy at all. We had too much to explore during our week in Oahu so didn't spend much time at the pool, or get a chance to use the BBQ /area at all but both were nice. Last but not least, the owners were very friendly and helpful, providing a smooth experience and great value. We would come back and recommend to others.
2 1/2 Months in Makaha
Makaha is a good place to go to get away from the tourist traps of Waikiki. The beaches are amazing and not crowded. Makaha beach at the end of Kili Rd. is a great place to snorkel, surf, and boogie board. The condo is awesome and has everything you will need plus extra. The owners are great and easy to contact and respond in a timely manner. I have nothing bad to say about my stay in the towers or in Makaha. I will be back for sure.
My husband and I loved the beautiful condo. Nicely updated with all of the amenities needed for a vacation home. We will definitely be back to Makaha and renting this condo in the near future.
Thank you for sharing your home away from home! Makaha is a hidden gem with beautiful beaches nearby the condo.
All the Best,
Jessica & Tim
Beautiful, from the inside and the views outside!
This condo has everything you will need for your visit. Why worry about a little noise from the peacocks, well maybe a lot of noise - it is part of the vacation!
We really enjoyed our stay - thanks!

Condo looks brand new., very well maintained property
The property as a whole is very well maintained, safe and clean. Security is friendly and helpful and groundsmen are courteous.
The condo itself is well appointed. All the mod cons you'd expect at home in terms of appliances and kitchen/bathroom. The views from the bedroom and living room are both spectacular but different.
There are beautiful peacocks all over the place but their mating season is March to May - they call loudly at varying times of the day and night. Having said that, we've been back twice during their mating season and consider it part of the places charm. Not a bird lover? Bring ear plugs.
My Wife and I felt an immediate heart connection with the ownership and previous tenants. Surreal experience. We were welcomed with a Beautiful bottle of Wine, A box of Hawaiian Chocolates that we couldn't stop eating and a hand-written letter that made it feel so special.
In the fridge we found condiments and clean, unused, "community" items from previous tenants that were clean and in order. We also were able to proudly contribute by leaving some items for the next lucky visitors.. Hot Sauces, Beer, unopened Liquor, Salsa, Stuff like that. Super cool.
From the Communication with the ownership, property manager, residence staff all the way to the locals, this was a great experience all the way around.
Beautiful property that came fully equipped with everything the wife i needed for a romantic getaway that included a lot of fun. Beach gear and all. Saw Mongoose, Peacocks and Beautiful wildlife. PARADISE!
Super pumped and the wife and I plan a visit again soon...
