The developer seems to have spared… well, lots of expenses, actually. Like the endless concrete stairs at every turn, cheap-looking fixtures, etc. Some of the units are fairly nice inside, some are not. We’ve never felt very warm toward Makahuena. The location out on the point will expose you to lots of sea spray-laden wind, so don’t expect the windows to stay clean. Those winds, however, tend to keep the units cool. There are eight different floor plans, so it’s hard to say if you’ll get a good one. Second floor units are better for views, whereas many first-floor units are partly below ground. 2/2 units (1,157–1,217 sq. ft.) are $233–$509, 3/3 units (1,380 sq. ft.) are $341–$569. The second agent listed has some units with better prices.

What Readers Have to Say

“I just want to thank you for your wonderful O’ahu guidebook. My boyfriend and I got back to Washington, DC, on Saturday after an unforgettable week in Waikiki, and we are already planning our next trip to Hawai’i. Your hotel and restaurant recommendations were dead-on, and your detailed maps saved us in Kane’ohe!…We were impressed all week at the thoroughness and accessibility of your guidebook…You left literally no stone unturned. If we visit another island (which we fully intend to do), the first step in planning our trip will be to pick up your guide for that island. I have already recommended your guidebook to others and will continue to do so in the future. Again, I cannot thank you enough for enriching our vacation. We had a wonderful time and are completely charmed by Hawai’i. We will definitely be back…we spent most of Saturday being sad that we were not in Hawai’i!”
