- english, spanish, italian
We are beach people! Our parents have been coming to Makaha Beach since the 1950's and we have grown up coming to enjoy the beautiful West Side of Oahu. Our permanent residence is in Honolulu and this year we finally took the plunge and invested in this fabulous property.
Owner purchased this Studio in 2014
Why Owner chose Waianae
We rented at Makaha Shores in the past, but nothing was nice or clean or new enough for our standards. We waited to find the right unit on the right floor facing the right direction for an optimal vacation property. We are sure that if you love the beach, sunsets and relaxation, you will love it too!

5 days on Makaha Beach
First experience using VRBO and it was perfect! My wife and I(mid thirties, Canadians) stayed for 5 nights. Heather’s pad was as advertised(on one of the best beaches, best view, very clean and furnishesd it wonderfully) and we really enjoyed the location, now this location won’t be for everyone(only reason why I gave it 4 stars and not 5), as there not a lot of shopping nor is it high end, instead it’s authentic and gives a real local experience of Hawaii(which is a challenge to find in Oahu), as I said, it’s mostly locals, so you and your rental car will stand out. But this is my idea of a travel experience, getting away from generic commercialism, away from traffic and crowds, and immersed in a culture and beach lifestyle that’s unique. Now, after seeing the entire island, we really appreciated the lack of traffic and laid back vibe, and the locals know that and don’t want to to change like the rest of the island, as this is one of the few places that’s truly there’s, so they can come off a little intimidating or not very welcoming , however it’s just a face, and it’s kind of funny once you see though it, as there so nice that they need their neck tattoos to make them look tougher lol, if you greet them with a smile, don’t act entitled to there land and respect it, they will gladly share it with you and open up to you. Also we found lots of things to do in the area, you can surf, swim with turtles(u will see dive boats in the ocean that are within swimming distance from the place at the turtle cleaning station), play golf(Makaha golf club is the best value for golf on the island), hike to the cold pool waterfall, or just drink beers on the beach or balcony. basically if your a laid back, want a great view and and a clean place with lots of charm, stay here.
Lanai to Die For
Gorgeous stay! Amazing location! Stunning beach! Studio has everything you need for comfort and your stay. Amenities are close enough. We wanted to be off the beaten path with a real chance to recharge. Great pool, kind people at the complex. We will be back!
Surf side stay
The apartment is facing west directly overlooking the surf. With the lanai door open the breaking waves are pretty much all you hear. They are doing spalling repair on the garage, a problem if you are home mid-day and also upsetting the parking situation somewhat. We planned beach time next door or around the island and so avoided it. The interior is clean and nicely remodeled, very pleasant use of space. The resident manager and grounds keeper and everyone was very warm and friendly, as well as Heather, the owner, which made it easy to feel welcomed. There is no beach like Makaha, so beautiful. I was happy to go “local” there if only for a short time.
Thanks for a great location. Generally a quiet stay—perfect for a couple. Condo was well-equipped and clean.
Makaha Beach has good surf boarding/swimming & quiet beach.
Excellent vacation spot
This condo is immaculately decorated and fully stocked with everything you could need. The balcony overlooking the water is an excellent place to sit and watch the surfers. Heather was super helpful and gave clear directions on everything. Our only minor concern was privacy/security as the main door has tabs you can open (creates a great cross breeze) but then people in the hall could see in if they tried (only a screen). Never was an actual problem, just felt a little less private. Had great wifi, and lots of tv choices as well!
Overall an amazing space, we would stay here again.
Makaha Shores is located on the West side of Oahu. About 20 minutes away is the Koolina Golf Resort, Disney's Aulani Resort, Costco and Target are on the way from the Honolulu Airport to stock up. The greatest asset of this location is the natural beauty of the beaches, year round sunny weather, and ocean views. This is the place for relaxation. Sleep listening to the sounds of crashing ocean waves. Ultimate locatation for surfing and bodyboarding.
