Our recently remodeled and upgraded 4th floor unit in the Hawaiian Princess at Makaha is one of the most sought after and revisited vacation destination on Oahu's west side. The west side of Oahu is known as the dryer and sunnier side of the island resulting in some of the clearest cleanest waters on Oahu. These clear blue waters provide an ideal backdrop for all water activities (swimming, snorkeling, diving, bodyboarding, surfing, kayaking, boating, sunbathing, an beachcombing). Makaha is located approximately 40 minutes from the airport by car and 60 minutes west from the hustle and bustle of Honolulu, Waikiki and many of the major tourist attractions. Visit Oahu's rural area, enjoy the 'local' environment and experience some of the most beautiful, uncrowded sandy beaches on the island. You can visit the famous North Shore's surfing spots, or revisiting the history of Pearl Harbor, or shopping, dining, and enjoying activities of Waikiki and Honolulu all an easy day trip. You can return home to Makaha, enjoy the beach, swim in the pool, relax on your lanai, and unwind watching the sunset as the fabulous day closes and you recharge for another great day in paradise.
The Hawaiian Princess is one of only a few condos that are built on the beach with the Pacific Ocean at your door step. Few areas in Hawaii can boast of a secluded, white sand, crescent shaped beach with waters flat at times for snorkeling and surf at times for 'riding the waves'.The beach is often referred to as Oahu's 'best kept secret' because very know it is there. Our unit faces the ocean with 180 degree view of this white sandy beach, clear blue ocean and the historic Lahilahi Point. The fabulous view, spectacular sunsets, sounds of the waves and the close proximity to the beach makes this a perfect place to enjoy Hawaii's casual life style. Enjoy paradise, relax with the tropical trade winds, and play at the beach. The marine life is abundant in this locally named cove known as 'turtle cove'. Daily sightings of turtles, schools of fish, dolphins, whales (in season), monk seals, and more can be seen from your private lanai. You might even see the turtles on the beach being warmed by the sun.
The recently upgraded 1 bedroom /1 bathroom units can accommodate up to 4 persons and can be adjoined with another unit resulting in 2 bedroom 2 bath unit. The unit has everything that you will need with fully equipped kitchen, linens, and beach gear.

This Makaha location is stellar, the beach pristine, and this unit is new, updated, immaculate and supplied with everything you could need during your visit.
We love the beaches and everything that they have to offer. We love the peace and quiet, yet with a 20 to 60 minutes drive you can see beaches to mountains, sunny to rainy climates, secluded beaches to the craziness of Waikiki, and enjoy many of the tourist attractions all from this one location. We love it!
Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: Gerry is a registered nurse working in home care and most likely will be assisting your with your reservations. Mike is a retired engineer from Boeing. They both reside in Orange county, California.
Why the Owner Chose Makaha: We bought this property after visiting in 2012. Gerry has lived and worked on Oahu years ago and knew immediately this area was a 'special place'.The people at great, weather perfect, and the beach pristine. All areas on Oahu have something unique to offer, but this location we think is perfect. We hoped to share this Hawaiian experience with our family, friends, and each of you.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: The Princess sits right on the beach and the views from the lanai are breathtaking. This location is not in the 'touristy areas' , yet Honolulu, Waikiki, and other attractions are and easy day trip. This unit is newly remodeled and upgraded for your comfort.
