Last year I wrote about the many listings available at Makaha Beach Cabanas.  Prior to 2015, the building tolerated short term vacation rentals - less than 30 days at a time is illegal in most condos.  Makaha Beach Cabanas' board of directors decided they wouldn't allow it starting on January 1, ...

Have you ever seen the Makaha Beach Cabanas?  This condo is on a beautiful beach here on Oahu.   No exaggeration, that's how nice the beach is.  In recent years there have been times when listings rarely came up.  Now that's beginning to change.   The reason - the board of directors has decided t...

Last Sunday started out just kind of cloudy. We decided to pack up and look for a fishing spot on the West Side of Oahu, thinking that maybe the Waianae Coast would turn fruitful in our quest for a fish dinner. We stopped a few times along the coastline but the wind was starting to pick up and by...

I appreciate the history surrounding Oahu and if one is relocating to Hawaii or just coming to visit, I strongly encourage to seek out the historic sites. There is more to an area besides the stores and malls and the history of an area will provide insight into the past to present. The Waianae Ra...

I'm not a big-wave surfer, I do...

When Hawaii's housing market turns downward, the outlying locations seem to get hurt the worst.  Why is this?  Probably because areas like Waianae have less good jobs compared to Honolulu neighborhoods.  Also, when the market begins to recover, people look to the future and where there's room for...

Hiking the Waianae Range of Western Oahu, Hawaii  Most visitors to Oahu rarely make it out of Waikiki and even fewer still make it to the Leeward coast, whose wild and wooley reputation keeps even the city locals at bay. Never the less, the Waianae has some of the most beautiful beaches and sites...
