It was such an amazing trip my family and I had. I'm from Hawaii, so I had the pleasure of showing my family where I came from. I have to admit, I've never been on the west side of Oahu before. This was a first experience for all of us. It took us awhile for us to reach the condo. We ran into rush hour traffic. Once we arrived, it was smooth sailing from there. We all loved the condo. So nice and we felt secure there. Driving into the city didn't bother us at all, being from Cali, we are always driving long distances. Thank you for letting us stay in your wonderful place, Robin.
Loved this property. Very simple and comfortable. Great location as it is close to Makaha beach which I feel is one of the best beaches on the island. You do need a car to stay here though. We saw the north shore the east side of the Island and Pearl Harbour and Waikiki About 1 hr to Waikiki, 50 mins to Pearl Harbor, 1.25 hrs to north shore and about 1 hr to east side. But driving isn't bad at all - main roads all around the island. This condo has great beach stuff including mats to lay on, chairs, kids toys and snorkel gear (you have to snorkel at Shark Cove on the North Shore). A basically equipped condo but clean and comfortable in a gated community. There is a community pool and bbq area (coal bbq fyi) and laundry facility close to the condo. Make sure you take surf lessons with Danny (info on the fridge). Loved it, thanks Robin.
A Perfect 25th Anniversary Celebration!
My husband and I spent our 25th Wedding Anniversary at the beautiful Makaha Bamboo Plantation. The condo was so clean and well appointed we didn't need to purchase anything extra to make our stay comfortable. When we checked in there was a bag of Kona Coffee and a preloaded laundry card which was our saving grace in doing laundry during our stay. Robin even provided a box full of snorkel gear, beach chairs, and beach umbrella which we used several times. The grounds are so well taken care off and we enjoyed watching the peacocks strut their stuff. The pool area was comfortable with plenty of lounge chairs and clean restrooms and changing areas. When we left and returned to the property everyday we were welcomed back by the most friendly security guards ever!
Makaha is about 1 hour from Waikiki which my husband and I love but for some it may be a trek, don't let that detour you from staying in this little town, the people are so friendly and helpful and the local beach is pristine and the perfect place to watch the sun set. At the end of the road where the condo is there is a little market called the Ohana Family Market, great for last minute items and about 20 min to the South in Waianea was a bigger market called Sak and Save, there is also a Longs drugstore.
Our day trips included: Honolulu to the Bishop Museum, Legend Seafood for great Dim Sum and a walk through Chinatown. We also enjoyed Maitai Catamaran ride that left from Waikiki Beach, and our anniversary dinner at Orchids at the Halekulani...Fantastic!. Visit the Ko'Olina lagoons if you want a beach with all the facilities and very low surf. Hit the North Shore for the best garlic butter shrimp in Hawaii..Romy's, and then stop at Ted's Bakery for Macadamia Nut Cream Pie. If you want to get sea sick and swim with the sharks book a tour with North Shore Shark Adventures in Haleiwa. Great experience but we weren't prepared for the choppy waters...ugh!
Thank you so much to Robin for being a great host, he even stopped by to meet us and leave an anniversary card and bottle of sparkling cider.
We plan on returning next year...without my 74 year old mother and her boyfriend :)
Excellent Value and Great Location
Hello, I thought it was important to provide a review. We stayed for 9 days and we loved the condo. The directions and instructions for the use of the condo were clear and easy to follow. The place was clean and plenty of room for 4 adults and it was well stocked with supplies. Thank-you for making our stay pleasant.
The area is lovely and the Makaha beach is beautiful. Many visits to the beach while we were there. It is a bit to drive to Waikiki but the price and quiet is worth it. There was some construction going on behind the condos of new houses but we are early risers so it was fine. Again thanks for everything.
Amazing on a budget!
We had an amazing time in Hawaii. This was our 6th trip to Hawaii and the second time we have stayed on the Makaha side of Oahu. We enjoyed the condo and the property amenities. The little extras provided by the owners were really great. The fresh mangoes for breakfast and the pre loaded laundry card were perfect. The ocean view, especially in the morning was breathtaking. The local beaches are beautiful although we did not swim at them. There are little beaches in a local neighborhood (read the guest book) where you can find turtles sunning themselves right on the beach.
The condo itself was well equipped kitchen and sufficient furniture with room to move around too.
Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. We will be back for sure if we plan another trip to the area.
perfect for families, great value
We had a great family vacation at the Makaha Bamboo Plantation. We have 2 young kids, so it's essential for us to have a kitchen. It was really nice to stay somewhere with such nice grounds, so that our oldest could use the pool while our youngest napped. We LOVE the beaches on this side of Oahu - our favorites are Makua and the lagoons at Ko Olina. The condo was really nice. The colors are beautiful (and have inspired me to use more color back home), and the extra touches really come through. Since we're on a budget, I'm not used to encountering such nice accommodations, so this was a real treat.
