Outstanding view of Hawaii's Makaha Bay, Beach.
The owner provided excellent communication via email, telephone and fax as required to facilitate our booking, our stay and our closing of a one month vacation. The unit is in the last large condo unit on the north west coast of Oahu. My husband and I found the unit more than large enough for our needs. The kitchen was recently upgraded. The queen size bed was comfortable. The balcony is exceptionally large and offers spectacular views of the waves rolling on to the shore. Daily we enjoyed our favourite beverage watchings surfers and divers. We had the opportunity to watch whales on the horizon and several times we saw dolphins jumping in the distance. Security in the building was excellent. The residential manager was helpful. Groceries were available within a three mile drive. Surf boards could be rented locally. Golf was great at Makaha Valley CC. We played through Golf Now to get discounts. The residents were a mix of local folks and vacationers. All of us enjoyed the heated salt water pool. There are a number of small local restaurants, but generally this is a quiet hidden away location. It is about an hour from Pearl City and Honolulu due to traffic conjestion on the island. However, if you want to experience the Hawaii that you have seen in old movies, then this is the place. We would recommend it highly to anyone not looking for crowds and noise. This may not be the ideal place for young adults looking for night life as it is very quiet after 9 p.m. You will definitely need a rental car. There is a bus service, known as THE BUS. The service runs regularly, but timing can be inconsistent. We managed to see the entire island by scheduling our trips around the traffic reports. Several shopping excursions were made to local malls. We also found the dryness associated with this side of the island as an advantage to rain associated with the windward side. On the rare occasions when it did rain briefly, we could see beautiful rainbows in the valley behinds us, that led to the mountains that are only a few miles away. We hope to return at some point. The unit facilitated one of our best vacation experiences. Grab a few trip books, and plan to relax at the condo, and drive out to see the island and all its beauty.
