Area Info
Our Mahaka Valley vacation rental condo in the Mahaka Valley Towers is ideally located for those seeking a quiet yet stimulating living experience in the Westside of the island's sunny southern shoreline. Our rental accommodation is located away from the Honolulu and Waikiki scene and found in one of the island’s beautiful valleys, along the Waianae ridge. Drive along the dry west side, with the mountainous interior on one side and the blue ocean on the other. The highly varied west side of this rural and lightly developed part of the island – a side of the island known for where IZ lived and the “Hawaiian" in the people of Westside retain much of the natural spirit of aloha once common on all the islands.

1 hour from Honolulu, 25 min to Kapolei and the Aulani Disney Resort, 1 hour from the North shore.
Makaha Beach is a 5 minute drive down the road, where sunning, swimming and sunsets can be a way of life.

10th Wedding Anniversary at Nani's Hideaway

July 10, 2012

When looking at our first vacation to Hawaii for our 10th wedding anniversary we were not sure where to look or where to stay. When my wife and I were searching for places to stay we came across Nani’s rental, and we were so blessed and lucky to have found it. From the start of our correspondence she was very gracious and informative. Throughout the whole process and our visit there we felt more like friends and family than a client. Upon arrival to her lovely home we immediately noticed the touches that Bob and Nani made that made my wife and I feel special. It is hard to say in words how beautiful the view is from her house. From the lanai you can see the ocean and the mountains. The home is only a couple minutes from a pleasant beach, which is easy to access and far away from the crowds of tourists that fill many others. The home is decorated with a island theme. it is fun to spend time browsing the art and books. Like other reviewers noted, it is a very peaceful place, far away from the busy tourist centers of Honolulu and Wakiki. When on a snorkeling trip that passed Mahaka Valley you could see the condo nestled at the base of the mountains, and many of the other people on our trip were immediately envious of where we were staying and very reasonable price that Nani is listing it for. When we return to Oahu we will not hesitate to return to Nani’s home, and we have already been spreading the word to our friends to do the same. Mahalo Nani and Bob for all the care and for making our 10th wedding anniversary a very memorable one.

Owner's reply:

He mea kupanaha ( it's wonderful, amazing!)
Bob and I are blessed, by you and Hope, who become part of our family. WE are enriched that you shared your special anniversary in our home. We believe you will bring Nick with you on your return trips. malama pono, Nani and Bob

Best Vacation Rental-Wonderfully Peaceful Energy!

June 16, 2012

From the start, Nani was an amazing host, as she accommodated my changing needs fr 5 days to 7 days at the last minute. I was going to Oahu for my nephew's 1st baby party, & my parents also just bought a place in the Makaha Valley Towers & were coming to the Islands. Because of slow moving with the close of their property, I wasn't sure whether we would all have a place to stay. Well, Nani immediately started calling around & found us a backup just in case we weren't allowed to stay at the condo that my mom bought. Thank you! Nani's condo was so clean and well kept, it felt like a TRUE home away from home. I have visited my sister over the years and stayed in many vacation rentals across the island from Kailua, Waikiki to Hau'ula & the North Shore, but this was by far THE best place I have ever rented. Bob & Nani have thoughtfully stocked their condo with every single possible item you could need, beyond a fully loaded kitchen with new appliances, coffee maker, toaster, blender, crock pot, but extras like toiletries, an iron & board, screwdrivers, stationary, nail files, this condo has it all! Not to mention the amazing library of books to immerse yourself in Hawaiian culture & history, there are games, videos and this is all on top of the condo already having a great layout. There is a super comfortable island themed decor living room/dining area with panoramic mountain & ocean views that opens to cozy bedroom, and a surprisingly large "dressing room" next to it with full closets and vanity. The bathroom is also huge and we joked that our whole family could brush our teeth together in that room alone. What I was most impressed with was every morning I sat and meditated in the condo and felt such wonderful energy in this place. I could really feel the love & positivity that the owners have filled this condo with. The towers are far from the hustle & bustle of Waikiki, and at times I felt like we were in another country. But besides the loud bizarre mating calls of the wild peacocks that live on the property, this was THE quietest place I've ever been to on Oahu and it was Exactly what I needed. It was a sacred & calm retreat. Makaha beach was beautiful, and the bf got to surf a little. Tamura's Supermarket in Waianae had everything I needed to cook my parents dinner in the condo. We also bought delicious local mangos from a boy on Makaha Valley Rd & some fresh local veggies from the Waianae HS Farmer's Market Sat morning. The Best Vacation Rental

Owner's reply:

WOW, Mahalo nui for your kind words. Bob and I were brought up in the time of Hawaii, when family and friends, new ones too, when the first word greeting was "E`ai oe", will you eat. Where hospitality of opening your home and life is always with Aloha. Again, Erika, WOW and we will keep up our good work and welcome you anytime. Me kealoha Akua. Nani

A picturesque getaway

June 7, 2012

This condo is a perfect place if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the busy tourist streets, and just kick back and relax surrounded by nature itself. If you're looking for privacy, you'll certainly find it here. The views are absolutely breath taking any way you turn. I have to say that I did appreciate the quiet beach down the street after being in Waikiki which is just jam packed with people every where. It's cleaner and you really do get to relax just laying there soaking in the sun. If you have snorkel gears, no need to sign up on tours which just takes you right to the same beach to see the turtles and dolphins (we found out the expensive way). If you're looking for more tourist attractions, activities, and eateries, you won't find them very close. There are only a few restaurants within 20 min driving distance and we drove into Waikiki to have dinners some nights and to take surfing lessons. The only noise that we found were the absolutely beautiful peacocks that are on the premises, and we were quite surprised to find out how loud they could be. (We were told that it was mating season at the time of our stay) Overall, we had a great time and enjoyed the condo. My favorite part of the condo was the spacious bathroom which you can't find in hotels. Thank you Nani for your hospitality and providing us a great place.

Owner's reply:

Aloha Jei,

Mahalo for the kind words, and it was nice of you guys to drive out and meet me. Sorry about missing the warning about Peacock mating season, you guys will just have to come back in Sept. or Oct when they babies are running around and the big guys are losing their beautiful feathers for you gather and keep.

Ho`omaika`i ke Akua to you both and keep us in your plans for your next trip. Nani

Wonderful Place to Stay

July 11, 2011

We stayed at Bob and Nani's beautiful condo for 1 month. The view was absolutely amazing. The condo is very clean with everything provided, feels like you never left home. We did not want to leave. Nani and Bob made sure everything was set up perfect for us. They are really great people. If you are heading for a trip to Hawaii we highly reccommend staying at Nalani's in Makaha Valley you won't regret it.

Wonderful experience

April 22, 2010

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Makaha condo. It had a great resort like feeling with the pool and bbq/picnic area; but the condo itself felt like a home with everything that I needed. It also had the most wonderful view of the hills and the ocean. The beach and a public golf course (which are just down the road) are both very beautiful and not crowded.

Great stay and location to relax

June 1, 2009

My stay at the condo was comfortable and relaxing. The location is great as is the view. The amenities are superb with a great pool and bbq/picnic area. The staff was friendly and helpful with whatever we needed. The unit also had everything we needed and we felt like it was part of a home. Makaha beach is a very short distance down the road and had hardly any people which is what we wanted. There are several other great beaches with no crowds in the area also. Loved being in a place we felt was in the real Hawaii, not the commercial Waikiki.

Great vacation in paradise

May 31, 2009

We have stayed in many vacation condos all over the world and this on was on of the best ever. We loved the view and the peacocks and other wildlife. It was very well apointed and very cozy. Makaha Beach was a beutiful beach. Not as crouded as in Waikiki which is a plus. People we met down at the bbqs were all very friendly and it was nice to have dinner there.

We have references and gladly share Jason's from Jan. 2009

To whom it may concern,

As I write this letter, all I can think of is the picture I put on my phone as a home screen. Sunrise on Makaha beach. Walking down to the beach from Bob and Nani's condo is so relaxing. Then to watch the sun coming over the mountains. It doesn't get much better. Oh wait, then you have all day too. The days at the beach are so nice. Everyone in Makaha is super friendly. The sunsets are even better then the sunrises.

Going from the clean and comfortable condo with a beautiful mountain and ocean view, to the ocean is my kind of vacation. The condo is clean and well stocked. The staff at the Makaha Valley Towers are so nice. They helped me with anything I needed. Along with the Aloha of Hawaii, I cannot think of anything else but wow…

Will I be back….oh yes…!
