Enjoy your day at Makaha Surfing Beach or hiking in the Waianae Range and then relax in Your Paradise Destination.

Makaha is away from it all but still accessible to anything you want to do on Oahu. Life in Makaha is quiet but you can get to Honolulu in an hour. Ko'Olina is 20 minutes away and provides a wonderful swimming lagoon and world class dining.

Your Paradise Destination laid back luxury. Away from the hustle and bustle of Honolulu and crowded restaurants. Waianae is "Old Hawaii".

The space

Your Paradise Destination (YPD) is laid back luxury. Away from the hustle and bustle of Honolulu and crowded restaurants, YPD is a rural oasis with small restaurants and markets, one of the best surfing and snorkeling beaches on Oahu and a challenging 18 hole golf course, not to mention colorful Peacocks wandering the grounds. This rental villa in the hills above Makaha Beach is where the sun sets over the ocean each and every morning. A perfect spot to relax, reflect, and enjoy being together as a family.

Here, couples can enjoy seductively intimate dinners; families can have a blast together and the newlyweds can start their lives together in one of the most romantic destinations on Earth. Your Paradise Destination is the ultimate island Experience that has so much to offer…and it’s all yours to discover.

With a myriad of activities to enjoy — like snorkeling, SUPing, BoogyBoarding, Surfing Golfing, Tennis, Swimming—there’s always somewhere to relax, enjoy a glass of wine or share an intimate nightcap.

At Your Paradise Destination, There Truly is Something for Everyone

Guest access

Your Paradise Destination and the common areas in the community are all available to every guest. The common area includes several pools and hot tubs. They can be accessed with one of several pool keys in the condo. At check-in one is always placed in a bowl on the kitchen counter. The key is a approximately 1"x3" piece of aluminum with the unit number stamped on one side. The pool hours are posted on the pool. Guests also has access to the tennis courts and BBQ areas. One BBQ area is located directly behind the unit. Even though YPD is one of the few units in the area with it's own washer and dryer there is also a laundry room located less than 50' away that is available from 6 AM to 10 PM daily. If you decide to use the community laundry facilities there is a laundry card in the unit. To add value to the card you will need a $ 5 bill.

Interaction with guests

I travel frequently for business between Hawaii and California and am often in California when guests book my condo. I am available by phone or email for any questions. I have a great network of support for guest needs. A friend is available to meet guests when they arrive and I have also maintenance support for anything that may arise.

Other things to note

All guests will need to obtain a parking pass upon entering the community. The parking pass needs to be displayed in your car whenever it is on the property. There are two types of parking passes, next business day and long term. If your arrival is after the office is closed; 5 PM Monday, Thursday or Friday or 7 PM Tuesday or Wednesday; you will receive a next day pass from the guard. I will call the day of your arrival to let the guard know of your visit. The next day pass will need to be turned into the office the next day to obtain your long term pass unless you arrive on a Friday. As the office is closed on the weekend you would go to the office Monday morning to get your long term parking pass. If your initial arrival is during business hours please go to the office that day to obtain your long term parking pass.
If you can not get the ceiling fan remote to operate any of the fans please do the following to reset the ceiling fan receiver to the remote.
Ceiling fan reset:

Step 1. At the light switch controlling power to the fan, turn the power off for 3 to 5 minutes.
Step 2. At the light switch controlling power to the fan, turn the power on.
Step 3. Within 20 seconds of restoring power, firmly push the On/Off button & hold it down for 5 seconds. It works best if you count to five before pushing the buttons, because It lets the receiver charge up completely before attempting to reset the code.

The following rules are for the homeowners association where the condo is located:
- Please pull forward into your parking space. This is so the guard can see the license plate on each car to insure that they are parked in the correct space.
- Please do not leave shoes outside the condo (Many Hawaiian families do not allow any shoes in their home but the homeowners association wants all shoes within the unit).
- Please don't hang towels on the lanai (balcony).

You must also acknowledge
Must climb stairs - The unit is on the first floor but it is elevated above ground level. There is one flight of stairs with 6 steps from the sidewalk onto the landing.

We enjoyed John’s place, it was clean cozy, and away from busy downtown. Everything worked fine, John was real responsive and answered our questions promptly. The Neighbor Mitch was real nice and offered tips to the Island as well as John. Check in was easy just let the guard know you’re visiting and the office, it took maybe 3 mins. Everyone was so nice! The beaches were real close and secluded, meaning it’s great for snorkeling or watching the Turtles come in the evening. Overall a great experience for my wife and I. When we bring our 4 boys I believe we will stay a little closer to downtown for their sake. Thanks John!

As John has listed in the post there is some noise from roosters and peacocks, that was the only thing we didn't like, however were prepared for. We loved the amenities, how it was stocked with coolers and beach stuff for our use, all the fans, the ceiling fans, the pool, and how secure the home is. Johns communication was great also. If you are planning to visit will construction is still going on on H1 on the west side, make sure to leave before 7am or after 9am. Overall, we enjoyed Johns home and reccommend it to others. We would stay again :) Mahalo john!

John's condo was everything he said it was. The location concerned us a bit, but it proved to be a mute point although still close enough to the attractions to venture out each day. It was fun to explore the "real" Hawaii without all the tourists and the beaches are to die for. The kitchen was very functional and was large enough for my entire family. The beds were comfortable and the apartment was well maintained. The trade winds in the evening were a delight and kept us comfortable throughout the night. The complex was so quiet and was very peaceful to walk around. It was clean and well maintained. I highly recommend John's house!

The roosters and peacocks are great and you get used to them quickly. The pool and hot tub were very clean and beautiful. The neighbors treated us with great hospitality and we were very comfort and always felt safe. Fantastic value and a great place to get away from the tourists.

This is an awesome and a great family place if you are coming on a family vacation. The condo was very comfortable and had a very nice family feel to it. I recommend this location for anyone looking for great reasonable pricing, clean, lodging, very secure grounds with gated community, close to beautiful Makaha beach, 30 min. from airport easy drive to and from. You really get the feel of the island from where the unit is located at. The roaming Peacocks, and Roosters were something to look at and see. They were our automatic alarm clock to start us off on our day. John, Mahalo once again to you for your communication, and helping make our trip very enjoyable and memorable. Aloha. The Encinias Family

Excellent apartment and way roomier than expected. It was clean and we felt save at all times (even though people mentioned to us that the west side can be sketchy) Downside: The free roaming peacocks were surprisingly loud and kept us from sleeping in. Also, you're quite secluded and a rental car makes everything way easier to get around. After all, we would definitely book John's apartment again! John is very attentive and helpful and communication was super easy.
