About the property

1 Bdrm, 1 Ba Condo - Sleeps 4

This condo is perfect for the traveler who wants to see the starts at night and sleep to the sounds of the ocean. You'll be close enough to "civilization" that you can go to the movies, shop at Safeway or Target and still be home within 15 minutes.

Our unit is fully furnished and stocked with linens, tableware and cookware. Expanded cable TV and wireless internet is available for those who need it, but the beach right outside your window is where you'll likely be. This sandy cove is a popular resting area for Hawaiian Monk seals, dolphins and sea turtles. Please note that there is no lifeguard on this beach, and the waves and undertow can be surprising for the inexperienced swimmer. Very young children (less than 3-yrs) may have trouble in the waves, but older kids who want to be tossed in the sand on a boogie board will love it. There is a nice cove very close (Pokai Bay) that is more suited for the very young. More experienced surfers will appreciate the famous Makaha Surfing Beach just one valley over.

There is no air conditioning in this unit either - we rely on the ocean breezes to keep our unit comfortable. The west side of Oahu is often sunnier and hotter than other parts of the island, so be prepared to enjoy the beach every day.

This unit is also used as a vacation home for our family. If your desired dates appear blocked on our calendar, please email us and we may be able to adjust our plans to accommodate you.

About Noah and Mika Keaulii

We are a family of six (mom, dad and four children) trying to build memories and create stories that can be passed down the generations. Our oldest son in in the AIr Force, the next two are in middle school, and the youngest is 5 years-old and has cerebral palsy. Since traveling is difficult with him, we decided to buy a vacation home so that we can still "get away" for awhile.

Noah and Mika Keaulii purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Noah and Mika Keaulii chose Oahu

This condo is in one of the most beautiful areas of Oahu. The beach is secluded and not crowded at all. Hawaiian monk seals will often make an appearance, as does a large sea turtle that calls the cove his home. The water is clean and clear, and the colors are spectacular. We have 'vacationed' in Waikiki and we have 'vacationed' here so we can tell you with absolute certainty, that if you want to have a genuine "Hawaiian" vacation, you must stay on the West Side.

What makes this apartment unique

This condo is perfect for the traveler who wants to see the starts at night and sleep to the sounds of the ocean. You'll be close enough to "civilization" that you can go to the movies, shop at Safeway or Target and still be home within 15 minutes. This is not Waikiki, so if you want nightclubs and tourists, this is not for you.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to the cabanas for about ten years and this is one of the best units that we have stayed in. The owners are very accommodating. We plan to visit again next year.

Great condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo on February 3 thru February 17, it's even better than it was on pictures! We were impressed, very nice looking, clean,comfortable, very well stocked-paper towels, soap,dishwasher liquid, toilet paper, laundry detergent, softener, sponge,shampoo-you name it! I was also impressed with the quality of sheets and towels and how well stocked the kitchen was . The view from balcony is amazing, we spend each morning eating breakfast there.The owners are nice people,they answered my emails quickly,promptly,answered all my questions patiently (I had a lot of them!). We just loved staying at this condo! I would recommend it for everyone who would like to vacation away from Waikiki, on great beach, and wouldn't be afraid of cooking their own meal.

Hello all,

first of all: We are both from Germany and have never been at Hawaii before.

The accommodation is simply equipped, but everything is available which is necessary for daily use.

The key advantage is the view out of the bedroom on the ocean! You can sit at the balcony for breakfast at have a look at the deep blue ocean listing to the waves.

In the night you can open all windows an listen to the waves. Only one time, we become so loud, that we closed the windows and switch on the fan.

One disadvantage is the long way to Honolulu or to the Highway towards the North Shore so that you have to drive more than 30min every day.

But the view out of the flat, the beautiful beach, without any stones and only 10 to 50 people at every time at beach, makes this accommodation to in highly recommended place to stay at Hawaii, far away from Waikiki-Beach.
