Great Makaha condo, family of 5 with 3 older kids

  • 5 of 5
We had a great vacation here. The condo was quiet, lovely, spacious and well-equipped. Laundry was very convenient. And the view was amazing! The beach was a quick drive with big waves for the kids to boogie board. The beach always had lots of space to spread out and we saw quite a few turtles! We usually headed into Ko Olina or Kapolei for dinner and shopping (about 20-30 min) but there's great barbecues on site.

Wonderful Time a Makaha

  • 5 of 5
Helen's apartment is FANTASTIC! In the first place, the Makaha Valley Towers are wonderful and this apartment has a unique location with awesome views to the sea and the valley. Its decorated with great taste and with a clear understanding of functionality. Its very well equipped and all the sheets and towels are of the highest quality. I recommend this place to anyone who wants to enjoy the beach, nature and a peaceful getaway. Finally, if you want to add some variations you can always go to other places of Oahu and even Honolulu for day trips. We had a GREAT TIME there!

Helen's unit is lovely in every way. Everyone on the grounds was so pleasant and welcoming. The unit is decorated with good taste and furnished with convenient and thoughtful detail to feel like a home away from home. The view from both the deck and the entrance is awesome! We could even see whales migrating a mile away from 15th floor deck. We would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a peaceful get-away. There is enough to see and do on Oahu with day trips and return to Makaha Valley Towers at the end of the day. We loved everything about it.

Wonderful place to relax and enjoy family

  • 5 of 5
For our stay during Spring break, we wanted a place away from busy Waikiki and found the perfect get-away. Surrounded by lovely views of the mountains and the ocean, the condo provides for a relaxing holiday. It is lovely and clean as presented in the description and has a fully stocked kitchen. This was our first experience with a VRBO and we will certainly go this route again. The owner, was delightful to work with, very responsive and helpful providing clear directions, instructions, and helpful tips. Thank you, we hope to rent your condo again.

Winter Vacation in Paradise!

  • 4 of 5
The condo was wonderful, clean and exactly as pictured on the VRBO website - beautifully decorated and a great layout. Everything was provided for so no need to buy anything except groceries (and even some of those were already in the cupboard or fridge).
The view is beautiful and the beach is a very long walk away or a short drive and well worth it. Although we didn't surf we watched many taking advantage of the good waves.
The condo is located about 1.25 hours from the Honolulu airport (depending on traffic) and a little hard to find (especially at night) if you're not familiar with the area, but you quickly learn the various landmarks to go 'home'.
The only downside for us were the extremely firm beds (a foam topper would be nice and easily removed for those that prefer a firm bed).
We toured the island with a rental vehicle and learned to allow extra travel time as traffic is busy and you are farther away from some tourist attractions.
Helen was a pleasure to work with in finalizing our reservation and she answered all our questions quickly and thoroughly. I would recommend this property to others without hesitation.

Owner's Response: Hi Trish:
Thanks for your kind review of my Island Paradise! I'm happy you enjoyed yourselves. I appreciate your comments about the firm mattresses, and see what I can do. I bought expensive mattresses and carpets, because I think this is very important . . but, I will check into the mattress situation. Regarding the time it takes to go to the airport, it really is only a 40 minute drive at the most, unless there is an accident, or if you go during rush hour. Sorry you encountered slow driving. Since it is a small island, we try to avoid rush hour driving back to our condo, between 4 - 6 PM. This is true in any large city, actually. I hope you tell all your friends in British Columbia about our 'best kept' secret in all the islands! Thanks again for your kind comments, and your business! Hope to see you back again real soon!
Cordially and Mahalo,
Helen, Owner/Property Manager


From the Owner

This 2 bedroom gem is located at Makaha Valley towers, in west Oahu, where it is quiet and away from a lot of tourists. Most residents live at the towers most of the year, or year around. There are 586 units, nestled against the majestic Waianae mountains on Oahu, Hawaii. With incredible views ranging from the mountains to the tropical sea, Makaha Valley towers is a tranquil oasis far from the hustle and bustle of city life. The heated pool is a welcome amenity!
