5 star review - Comfortable, Enjoyable, Accommodating
My family and I spent 3 weeks at the Makaha condo and we were completed satisfied with the condo's condition, amenities within the condo and the condo complex itself. The pictures don't do the condo justice and I think at the time I booked the condo, the amenities page wasn't completely accurate. The kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, rice cooker/slow cooker, juicer, etc... wifi was available along with netxflix which was a win for the kids! The decorator was sweet and cute. The condo is older, but the owners definitely refurbished the kitchen, and other parts of the condo. It was very very very comfortable, clean, and spacious. Plenty of towels (beach included) and linen. The beach equipment was a plus. Snorkel gear, boggie boards, mats, beach umbrellas etc... was very much appreciated! All equipment mentioned was kept on the lanai. The boggie boards have a nice home behind the storage container and from the ground you really can't see the boards unless you really look hard! However, we received a visit from the property manager stating that the boards were visible from the lanai and the security guards reported it. We kept them inside after the visit from the property manager. The lanai is gorgeous. No other condos looked directly into the lanai. Condos above and to the left maybe able to see down, but the umbrellas were positioned to block on-looker and of course the sun and rain. There is a plumeria tree right next to the lanai which lent to the beautiful view and of course birds would perch in the tree. Red Cardinals. The resident peacocks were a pleasure to watch! Beautiful birds and they travel in groups. Makaha can get hot and the living room has a small air conditioner. The rooms have fans that are fixed to the walls. There is another fan in the living room fixed to the wall that wasn't working. And then there was the standing fan. The standing fan moved around the house quite a bit. If there were trade winds we would open the bedroom vents and the sliding glass door. The breeze was awesome!! I would recommend a few more portable fans. You need the fans on at night. Overall, we had a wonderful time at the makaha condo. It was perfect for my families' vacationing needs! Makaha is located to the extreme west thus it was about 30 minutes to Kapolei, 45 to an hour to Honolulu, 90 minutes plus to the north side etc... but it was worth it. We enjoyed the day trips. We look forward to coming back. Mahalo Nui Lo
