We bought and renovated our property in 2013 to be our luxury vacation home that would be comparable to staying at the Ko Olina (Where 1 bedrooms can be $600/night!). This apartment has everything and more. Beautiful open kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. Family room with a 42" flat screen tv, incredible comfy sectional to curl up together after an amazing day at the beach. An oversized walk in shower with a pebble floor in a Zen bathroom. A Cal King Bed with duvet covers and a Novafoam (Gel Memory Foam) mattress make it perfect for a couple. Fully air conditioned, with cable TV and fast Wifi. (We are computer consultants, so we got the best.)
The view out of every window is breathtaking. You see ocean and mountains and coastline everywhere you turn. Make a cup of coffee and open up the sliding glass doors for the most amazing morning experience. Watch the sunlight creep over the mountain range and the swells make their way to the beaches.
The Makaha Valley Towers has everything you need for a perfect stay. The gated grounds are immaculate with peacocks strolling through the green spaces. It has a swimming pool, common area outdoor bbq's (no clean up!) and even a hose for car washes (Or to rinse off sandy feet. ). The residents, visitors and employees always are wonderful to "talk story" or just say "Aloha". One parking space is included with the rental.
A short mile down the street and you will find what we feel is THE BEST BEACH ON OAHU. Makaha is an amazing white sand beach with great snorkeling or surfing if you are up for a challenge (we leave that to the experts...) The water is crystal clear and when you float with your toes pointing to the beach you see the towering Waianae mountain range.
Waianae is a very special place. A laid back community with "Old Hawaii" charm. There are grocery stores, drug stores, cute restaurants, and many secret beaches that most visitors to Oahu never have a chance to see. There is a wonderful local golf course a half mile away. And the Waianae boat harbor has fantastic dolphin and whale tours. We have a welcome book highlighting the best places to go right in the area.
Mahalo and Aloha!
