Great first visit!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Hawaii, and from our first contact email, we were happy we chose Heather's condo. The condo was clean, bed was comfortable, had plenty of storage and conveniences and a million dollar view!

The grounds were well kept, BBQ very convenient, the pool was awesome, as were the people we met. We were fortunate to see dolphins & whales from the lanai, and a turtle on Makaha beach. We were mesmerized by the beautiful blue ocean and the surfers. We rented a car and took advantage of touring the island several times. We booked a snorkel and dolphin tour on the Dolphin Star which was awesome, with pickup in Waianae boat Harbour -the crew was friendly and informative.

Tamura market was convenient for groceries, fast food restaurants were close and the local Saturday market(8am- noon) had local goods and fresh produce(located behind Longs Drugs and Pizza Hut).

The Polynesian Culture Centre was a highlight for us- including the tour, luau and evening show. Kapolei has easy highway access with lots of major stores and restaurants, and Ko Olina has access to the public for swimming- we used lagoon #4 close to the marina.

A wonderful holiday in paradise! Would love to return one day...

Just what we had hoped for

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Makaha Shores. Looking out onto the ocean from the lanai we watched the surfers manage some spectacular waves, and in the distance the whales would surface. Makaha beach is right next to the building and has the feel of a local beach. The unit is just fine for two, and the lanai serves as another room. We had the door to the lanai open 24 hours a day, enjoying the sound of the sea. The unit is very well equipped, and the Tamura Supermarket is a good place to shop for groceries.

Thank you to Brooke who responded quickly to our issue with Wifi and a broken faucet, and to Heather and Pua the owners who kept us informed.

The best place to stay

  • 5 of 5

I can’t say enough good things about this place. The location is just perfect. It’s so nice to wake up to the ocean in your living room. Watching the sunset and sunrise everyday. The place comes with all you need even spices for cooking. Also it was great to have a snorkel, umbrella, and beach chairs for the beach. We saw sea turtles, seals, and whales just outside our window and loved watching the surfers daily. The place is comfy and the pool was such a nice add on. Would love to stay here longer. You won’t regret staying here

Amazing views!

This was a very well kept condo, with everything you need to cook your own meals. The views were amazing! We saw whales every morning. Thank you so much for opening your home to us!

Amazing views and perfect condo with everything you would need.

  • 5 of 5

First off the view! It’s simply stunning and better than expected. We enjoyed watching the surfers everyday. We saw dolphins and turtles from the lanai. The table and couch on the lanai is where we ate breakfast every morning, better than any resort you will find on the island.

Kitchen is FULLY stocked. You can cook anything, there is a pot and pan for everything. The pantry is stocked with seasonings and such so you don’t have to buy those. Condo is very clean and decorated perfectly.

Has an iron and hair dryer (not a weak one you find in hotels...a great plus). The bed was very comfortable and we slept great. Loved hearing the ocean.

Would recommend this condo to anyone. Only downside, no AC but room still stays comfortable if you leave shade down throughout the day while you’re out and about.

And let me tell you about the beach...THE BEST SNORKELING WE HAD THROUGHOUT THE TRIP WAS RIGHT OFF MAKAHA BEACH!!! Huge schools of fish. We saw an eagle ray and countless turtles, I couldn’t believe it.

Communication from owner was great from the moment we booked, throughout the trip, and issued refund the same day we left.

THANK YOU FOR SHARING THIS GREAT CONDO WITH US. We will be back.

Amazing vacation, amazing property!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been more pleased with our recent stay at this property. The minute we walked in we were in awe of the views from the balcony. We tried spend as much time either enjoying the balcony or enjoying the beach, which was literally steps away. The property is well kept, nicely decorated and just the right size for a Hawaiian getaway. The parking garage is convenient and pool was a nice option when the sun went down. I honestly couldn't have imagined a better spot to spend our 7 days on Oahu. We enjoyed some local restaurants as well. They are small businesses, but the food was delicious. There was enough shopping located nearby for us to have everything we needed to cook meals and relax. The beach chairs were appreciated and we even used the snorkel masks. We did opt to go on a snorkeling excursion, but we were able to drive a few miles to the harbor and catch a boat that brought us right back out in front of the property (we knew they were seeing something good after we watched the boats each day). We were able to swim with spinner dolphins and sea turtles. There was a seal that even spent some time with the surfers 2 of the days! If you are looking for an experience that takes you out of the hustle and bustle of a resort and fighting for beach space, I recommend this property. If you want an awesome vacation spot, I recommend this property.

Heather (owner) was extremely easy to work with and get in touch with, which was appreciated. The refunding of the security deposit was done quickly.

Thanks so much for sharing this gem with us!

About Owner

We are beach people! Our parents have been coming to Makaha Beach since the 1950's and we have grown up coming to enjoy the beautiful West Side of Oahu. Our permanent residence is in Honolulu and this year we finally took the plunge and invested in this fabulous property.

Owner purchased this studio in 2014

Why Owner chose Mākaha

We rented at Makaha Shores in the past, but nothing was nice or clean or new enough for our standards. We waited to find the right unit on the right floor facing the right direction for an optimal vacation property. We are sure that if you love the beach, sunsets and relaxation, you will love it too!

Location

Nearest Airport

Car: recommended

Makaha Shores is located on the West side of Oahu. About 20 minutes away is the Koolina Golf Resort, Disney's Aulani Resort, Costco and Target are on the way from the Honolulu Airport to stock up. The greatest asset of this location is the natural beauty of the beaches, year round sunny weather, and ocean views. This is the place for relaxation. Sleep listening to the sounds of crashing ocean waves. Ultimate locatation for surfing and bodyboarding.
