Wonderful! 4.9/5 -
(13 traveler reviews)


Wonderful spot. Wonderful people.

  • 4 of 5

If you are wondering if this place is worth it, the short answer is: Yes! A cozy little spot off the beaten path and away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. Both sets of pools/hot tubs are walking distance, the lanai is spacious, the condo is clean. It's not brand new, but for our two young children, it was paradise. We were able to relax, knowing the spot had kids in mind. The amenities offered are really what made the condo so wonderful for us. I overpacked! Beach toys, rainy day toys, even the kids cups brought smiles.

Our only con was the lack of sound control. It's condo living and noise is to be expected, but we found it frustrating that there was no way to close the windows to close out sounds. The windows are wonderful for letting in the great cool breeze, but that was it. Even closed, it didn't do much for sound. The maintenance crew has a set up right behind the building and while they only operate during appropriate hours, it was loud enough at certain points that we couldn't speak to each other over lunch.

Everyone we met was warm and welcoming. From neighbors to condo staff to locals at the market down the road. Countryside Cafe was our breakfast favorite. The west side beaches are ALL fabulous. Tide pools, soft sand, places for young kids to play and places to watch people surf or fish. If you really wanted, you could stay on this side of the island your whole trip, but the beauty is that it's still worth the drive to explore every spot you're willing to go.

Communication could have been a little better. We didn't receive information on checking out until we had already left for the airport. Nonetheless, if you're wondering: I doubt you'll regret the stay! We didn't!

Perfect accommodation

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this condo for the month of January. My daughters and grandchildren took turns visiting. The condo was spacious and very well equipped. The condo community is a combination of people who are full time residents and tourists. Everyone was very friendly and I felt very safe. The staff of the Bamboo Plantations are top notch and they are constantly working to keep the grounds immaculate. Makaha Beach is beautiful- clean and uncrowded. Although you are somewhat isolated, everything you need is in the area. There is a grocery store, weekly market, and small but tasty restaurants. I feel you need a car although the bus service appeared to be excelllent. When I had a small problem with the door lock, Robin was over immediately to fix it.

Total serenity is the Vacation we enjoyed. The Condo is just perfect, having everything yoo need!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was perfect! Everyday we would rise early, sip coffee staring at the Ocean from the balcony and enjoy the Beautiful Peacocks on the grounds. Felt totally safe there with gated 24/7 security. The hot tub and pool are a bonus after snorkeling and traveling the island all day. Robin and his Wife were very kind and there if we needed them, but didn't as they have everything you can need. Loaded kitchen, Beach gear, Coolers, Coffee and Great Beach Atmosphere 💕💕

Forgot to mention behind the Condo are beautiful Mountains that the clouds climb over and look so heavenly, truly spectacular sight while swimming in the Ocean. Yes that is how close you are to the Ocean & Mountains 😊

Planning to return to this hidden Paradise soon 😌

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.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

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.
