Paradise in Makaha!!
July 28, 2015
Hawaii may be paradise but finding a reasonably affordable condo to stay for an extended stay was tough. Since we were there for a work contract we didn't want to break the bank on a rental so that we could spend our dollars on surfing, sand, culture, food, and relaxation. Upgraded, clean, full-sized one bedroom (full kitchen/bathroom) and beautifully decorated Hawaii accommodations are generally extremely expensive. Boy did we pick the right place! Steering clear of Honolulu and Waikiki to live in Makaha was the smartest move we could have made. Our condo was immaculate and modern. Each morning I drank my coffee perched on one of our kitchen stools overlooking our balcony. With our private tranquil beach filled with rolling waves, by the time the whale migration began we were set. We watched them surface and breech every morning. It was unbelievable! Afternoons I would take a dip in the pool. Our owners made themselves available to us when needed, which was rare given the excellent set-up of our tastefully tiled and decorated condo. It had all the beach necessities, fully modern kitchen with all up to date appliances, and AC that we really didn't need as the breezes blowing on this side of the island are wonderful. Shower and bathtub excellent with great water pressure. Short drive, or walk even, to amenities, shopping, and little restaurants; and further up the road to one of the most spacious, under-used beautiful white beaches in Hawaii. I cannot say enough about our experience, both with our residence and the owners. In a time of corporate shuffle, overpriced tiny hotel rooms, and impersonal accommodations, we picked the best all around way to experience Hawaii when we picked this place. We called this place, our second home :) Five stars!!!
