My wife and I have lived here 7 years. I have been all over this Island and I can not fine a single condo as close to the water and with as much protection for their cars as MSS. Our cars are on the 2nd and 3rd floors of the parking garage. There are issues here as with any condo or town I have ever lived in. I call My home the projects with a 5 million dollar view. One of the least expensive condos with a view like this in Waiane, lots of single moms just trying to get by. Lots of Section 8 folks. If a person does not want to get to know the real people of Waianae I would have to agree with those that have had negative comments about MSS. However; I have been Chief of Security at Makaha Valley Towers, worked in the Psych field for 7 years, supervised 30 to 300 contractors in my own business for 27 years in Virginia Beach Virginia. I would recommend that if you come visit MSS acknowledge everyone with a smile, shaka sign with the fingers and most people will respond in kine. Even the roughest toughest local person I have met in the last 7 years has responded in the same way. My wife Nadine and I are blessed to be holding a bible study under the trees every Sunday from 8 AM till 10 AM and we get to meet all the dog walkers. So if you chose to brave Waianae come visit MSS. I personally believe you will have the best visit you have ever had on the Island of Oahu Hawaii. I might be a little biased, but just a little. Tommy & Nadine PS Drive time to Kolina about 30 minutes. Honolulu 1 hour to 2 hours depending on the time of day. If you love and enjoy driving this is one of the best most enjoyable rides of my life and I have driven across the USA several times. I love the ride, I hope you do too. Nadine and I say to one another "You know what? What? We are in Hawaii and God gets the glory.
