Born in the New York, USA area, I have lived on Oahu almost 20 years, 7 of them in the Makaha area. I love the water and hiking and will be able to help you find secret beaches, hiking trails, and the coolest snorkeling spots.
Aloha Max, Thank you for the nice review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and had a safe trip home! I'm also glad you stressed the need for a car. I always try to explain to people before they book. Sam says WOOF!
Aloha Melissa and thanks for the review! yup, 2-3 days are really all you need to see the West side of Oahu. When people ask for a week out here, I always recommend to people to break their trip into 3 segments: North Shore, Waikiki, and Waianae coast , each for 2 or 3 days. They can see more on the island with a lot less driving. Oahu is a LOT bigger than people think it is!!
Aloha Heather, thank you for the nice comments, and I'm glad you enjoyed Hawaii! Sorry the roosters kept you up, but thanks so much for mentioning that they belong to a neighbor and are not mine, and that I provide earplugs to try to help people ignore them!!
