Leon! You're home was amazing! Quiet, beach front location. The waves were just picking up the last week we were there, loved seeing the 4-5 footers and the surfers who were enjoying them as well. Thank you for the great food recommendations, we did travel to almost every tourist location on the island, but also loved the 2 days we spent just chilling at your home. We will definitely return someday with family and will hope your home will be available again. Aloha!!

I highly recommend a stay here!! Beautiful beach, great condo with view, fabulous host, and great all around Hawaiian experience. The host was the BEST! He gave us a list of places to eat and visit which were all fabulous, and was extremely responsive to all our communications. Our stay was above and beyond any expectation we had for our location, the condo, our host, and every experience we had!! When you stay here make sure you find the little cove just South of the condo. It is the stopping point for many turtles and is beautiful!!!

What a view! Great condo right on the beach. A little of a drive to Honolulu & the tourist spots but we wanted & enjoyed being away from the super busy areas of the island. We felt like we experienced more if the 'real' Hawaii, not the fake tourist village at the Hilton in downtown Waikiki. Leon was a great host, super easy to get a hold of and very accommodating! Condo was clean & furnished nicely. Bed was pretty comfy for a Murphy bed and you can't beat the sound of the waves crashing coming from your patio :) If you want to stay out of the city and closer to some beautiful beaches, this is the place!

You can't go wrong with this place!! Great location and value! Will be coming back soon!

The location was wonderful for us being away from the busy island touristy locations. We could still drive anywhere on the island to see all the sights but return to our secluded condo. We loved our beach! It seemed to be the favorite beach for surfers which was amazing entertainment to watch them morning and night.

Good location for surfers. Need a car. No coffee shops/grocery shops nearby and lots of traffic to get there when you find them. Noisy beach adjacent to apartments from 4pm each afternoon until late at night - (or 9pm is earliest) Very scenic views north of Makaha beach. The Farm to Plate restaurant 6 miles away is excellent. Traffic to Honolulu is always very busy.......even at 4.30am!!!!! Apartment was well equipped - with an excellent pool within the complex which was well looked after and maintained. Sunsets were magic.

You can't get any better beach access than Leon's place. Being on the ground level is awesome because you can walk right out, and sit out at night and listen to the waves crashing. It was really cool watching all the surfers at this famous surf spot. We also saw two whales breaching right from the lanai the morning we left - it was INCREDIBLE. Cute little place with the right amenities. Communication with Leon was on point and he always got back to us quickly and with a lot of helpful information - thanks so much. This was our first time in Hawaii so we winged it with where to stay. Just FYI, Makaha is far out - you definitely need to rent a car and you're going to do a fair bit of driving to get anywhere with good food selections. If you're just looking to beach bum it the whole time, I'd suggest stocking up on good groceries near Honolulu and then you may be set for a bit. There are a couple decent restaurants/eateries close-by (they all close on the early side - like much of Hawaii) but a good grocery store is at least 30 minutes away (we found Tamuras to be very overpriced for dodgy quality (($11 for a bunch of asparagus)). You definitely need a small rental car for the parking space provided but you get used to it being tighter quarters so it wasn't a big deal. Like someone else commented: this is local Hawaii, which is cool in many ways but the area offers very little as far as restaurants, drug stores, shops, etc. There's always a local crowd hanging out at the beach at night, and the cops make regular appearances but we never felt unsafe. It was an authentic experience for sure! Our only "complaints" about the actual accommodation are: 1 - bathroom privacy is an issue. While it has necessary and wonderful ventilation, it's ceiling is open so everything that goes on in there is easily heard by those not in the bathroom. 2 - the morning sun is awesome but it is bright! Big shades over the window could be nice for those who tend to wake up as soon as the light comes in. 3 - more wine glasses! Overall, a wonderful stay. Thanks so much, Leon!

Lucky and blessed to be born and raised in Hawaii! Growing up on the Windward Side, we always enjoyed visiting Makaha, the real country, to get away from it all.
