We stayed on the 8th floor which had the most awesome views. The beach and sunsets from above the water are really beautiful. The sand on the beach is very, very soft and you have to push to walk through the sand. So if you are a walker like us, this beach is too much work! The surf can be... More

I've read some of the horrendous reviews left by several guests and I am incredibly confused. My husband and I got married May 10, 2014 and stayed in unit a107 from the 11th to the 18th. We both have nothing but amazing things to say about the unit. There were NO bugs and everything was immaculate. I did some research... More

Our friends stayed in 115b while we had 107a which is run by an agency. We found sand, cockroaches and balls of hair under the couch. Sand on the hideaway bed when we pulled it out. The microwave tray had old blood on it. Stains on the bedspread. I just felt dirty being in there. See VRBO for more info... More

My Criteria for Accommodations: If I’m going to be near an ocean, I’m going to be ON the ocean. I’m going to be able to sit there and watch the waves unobstructed. I’m going to be able to hear them. Second, the limit for a place to lay my head on a pillow for 8 hours is usually $75 but... More

First off...you come to Makaha to get away from "the people"...Waikiki is great and we loved staying there for a few nights too but Makaha is "Country"...lots of locals and no crowds. My cousin lives in Makaha and recommended the Cabanas to me. I did some research before booking and decided that I wanted a bottom floor unit that walks... More

For us, PERFECT. We are still here. Renting the unit was a breeze - the owner Joe Hynek - very accomodating and answers the phone each time. THE BEACH: Best kept secret; you have 1/2 mile of blue crystal clear water; hardly anyone on the beach -soo private. The pics you see is what you get. Water was warm, undertow... More

I lived at the Cabanas for 2-years. I go back there every year for the past 22 years. Staying at the Cabanas is one of the best kept secrets on the island. Every time I read a negative review is make me sick. The people who write these reviews are absolute pigs and do not appreciate what is nice and... More

Full review to come but clean w/a/c + freePhone to anywhere. We don't enjoy tourist haunts and enjoy meeting the people of the places we go. The people who live here are so kind and down to earth. We encounter few of the problems mentioed here. Sec guard and working staff was helpful and generous with their time and suggestions.... More

We stayed on the fourth floor and the view was amazing. Our condo is privately owned and they were fantastic at making sure we had everything that was needed. I was skeptical about the no a/c part, since we are from Texas, but in the winter months it's not needed. The town is 30-60 minutes from everything but if you... More
