Most of our guests agree that even one night's stay in Waikiki is enough. The yearly visitor returns time and time again to the west side.
Waikiki suggestions: plan an early dinner to avoid the long lines and crowds. We'll share best places to park, as traffic and parking are truly a commodity there. Don't miss the Friday night fireworks, enjoy a discount Prime Rib dinner, Visit the Newly Reno at International Market Place... very well done. A lovely addition to Wikes and great spot to Lounge! Take in some nightlife, Hawaiian music, or have a drink outside at the Moana Hotel (Sun/Wed 12:30)(Tues,Thurs 7:30p) or upstairs by Dukes or find other happy hour. Plan to travel back to the west-side after rush hour.
We have lots of great tips!
Hikers/Snorkelers: Grab our extra backpack, beach chairs, umbrella, hard or soft coolers, beach towels, beach blanket, kids beach toys and even Snorkel, mask, fins & the boogie boards, ...and set out for your favorite places.
We have the most appointed & affordable "couples retreat" & "family escape" vacation spot to get away from city congestion & busy town noises. After the days events, we recommend you plan for that early afternoon rendezvous with a Cold Beverage! ...... Highly recommended!
L i s t e n... here is the recipe for the most restful vacation ever!
Sand under your feet, pack dinner or grab a mixed plate ....BBQ chicken/Kalbi combo plate (enough to share) L&L Plate lunch, to take out to Pokai Bay, Makaha beach, Yokohama beaches or the beautiful KoOlina Harbor beach park.

Our weather is most consistently in the mid 80s all year round. The rain is welcomed in mostly the mountain regions. Unless a tropical system is involved, the rain usually quickly passes to reveal the sun. This is especially the case in Makaha as it is shielded by the Waianae Mountain Range!
SPRING and SUMMER "in general" bring the most tranquil ocean tides and soft, warm ocean trade wind beach days.
FALL and WINTER "in general" and seasonally our North & West beaches bring more consistent high wave action. Tourist, locals and surfers come for the Van's World Class Surfing contests and the famous "Eddie" which was spectacular last M that are spectacular to watch at Makaha Beach, and north shores, Waimea Bay & Pipeline or Sunset. Caution to all swimmers: check with lifeguards regarding west and north facing beaches as currents and tides are unpredictable and vary & change.

Nice secure condo village to stay at
I was surprised at how dry it was around the place and also how many homeless people lived in the area. It was a pleasant place to be though for us and actually pretty extravagant compared to many others that live there. Loved the local places and people, sooo friendly and helpful. I had to assist my mom into the ocean when she wanted to go swimming and there was always people around that would come over to help us out if they saw us struggling. Also it was so nice to see fathers and kids playing and family gatherings and people at the beach. I also enjoyed the local pub tacos and more and wet to listen to one of the musicians that play there. Although they were about a hour ad a half late to set up, they sounded great and the people there were also so very nice and social. I love Hawaii because of that. I liked the beaches at Makaha but most had big surf at the time we were there. I definetly recommend getting to know some locals and spending more then just a few hours in the place. Learned a lot about the area just talking to people on the beach. Thanks Janie for your help and suggestions. My family really enjoyed their holiday there and having a quiet place to sped time together was fabulous.
PERFECT CONDO FOR FAMILY 5
I was exited when reading the comments about Janie's condo getting so many positive feedback and I was overwhelmed finally getting there - even more, it was like our 2nd home far away. We were surprised with welcome complimentaries, everything for beach, specially the sunshade and beach chairs. The condo was very clean and taken care with touch of regard. Makaha is a great place to stay with kids, we also drove to East coast and North, there happen to be cloudy and rainy but in Makaha we had sunshine most of the time. If there'll be the next time visit to Oahu we'll stay at Janie's definitely. Mahalo, Janie and Sonny.
Stayed in this condo while in Oahu. This location is on the side of the island that is away from the crowds in Honolulu. Owners were very friendly and provided lots of information about things to do and places to go. Plan on staying here again if ever in Hawaii. Much more roomy than a hotel room. Loved everything on the island. Has a great mountain view from the balcony and peacocks roamed on the lawns of the property. Has a 24 hour security guard and is gated.
Janie was very helpful and welcoming in planning our trip, excellent customer service! It was nice to be able to stay in a 2 bedroom condo and have a separate living room and kitchen. The kids loved swimming in the pool. Janie had everything you needed to have a fun day at the beach, including chairs, towels, boogie boards, and sand toys. The condo was in a quiet area and was very clean. We had to do a lot of traveling to get to other places because it is in the town of Waianae on the west side which is far from the tourist areas. It is a very local area and seems a little run down. Makaha beach is very close to the condo and is beautiful, unfortunately we weren't able to swim in it due to the high waves this time of year. We did drive up the coast not far from the condo and saw several dolphins jumping in the water which was cool. We really enjoyed the Polynesian Cultural Center and learned a lot about the Polynesian culture. The show "Breathe of Life" in the evening was excellent. We had fun swimming at Lagoon 4 in Ko Olina.
Fantastic stay at a lovely condo!
We had a great time at this rental condo. It has everything you need for a delightful stay on the amazing island of Oahu.
The condo was secure, well stocked and there were a great many home comforts such as Netflix, great wireless broadband and kitchen supplies. We also made good use of the wide range of beach equipment, umbrellas chairs, cool box, goggles, snorkles etc etc. There was everything you needed!! Rooms were clean, air conditioning units were installed in the rooms as well as ceiling fans in all rooms. All of the above came in very handy in the amazing Hawaii weather!
The property itself is situated on a development along the West Coast, a great beach not 5 minutes drive away, and close enough to all the sights and sounds of the island, but at the same time being peaceful, quiet and well away from the hustle and bustle.
Many thanks to Janie and Sonny for the use of their property, their communications before, during and after our stay, everything ran so smoothly!! It was a pleasure to stay there and it is certainly on our list of places to revisit......if only it was at the end of our road and not 16 hours away by air!!!!
Peaceful, spacious, clean, and well stocked!
My wife and I along with our three kids had a great weak at the Makaha Get Away. The owners where very easy to communicate with and we had no stress about the check in process. The condo itself is great for a family, two bedrooms with a king in one and queen + full in the other. They had the condo stocked with all the necessity's plus any thing you might imagine bringing to the beach. What a blessing the beach equipment was for our family. We where able to thoroughly enjoy the beautiful island of Oahu on a modest budget.
Thank you Janie Jo and Sonny!
