  • 2 Relaxing Weeks on Oahu

    "We stayed at Makaha Shores to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We had a great time and appreciated the kindness of our hosts: Richard and Celeste. The condo was clean and comfortable and exactly what we were looking for. The sound of the ocean was wonderful. We came for relaxing, snorkeling and sightseeing. The first week we did not rent a car and stayed around the condo, saving the sightseeing for the 2nd week. We cooked in most of the time, and found everything we needed. We found the locals to be very friendly and we enjoyed taking the bus to get into Waianae for groceries, little bits of shopping. Although Makaha Shores was perfect for what we wanted, there are a few things to note- if you are coming for snorkeling the waves November to February can be a bit much (we understand the surfing is great at these times, peaking in Jan and Feb). We understand the spring and summer months are calmer. We did fine but had a jacket and "noodle" to be more confident in the water. The snorkeling is wonderful but we had to be careful of the strong current. We would not discourage anyone from coming, just be prepared. We thoroughly enjoyed it. We did not go for night life but to relax. There is plenty of night life- but that requires a drive into Honolulu. Makaha Shores is very quiet. We had a great stay and would recommend this to friends!"

  • beautiful view

    "The apartment lays on a unique location, overviewing 180 degrees of the coast. It stays almost on the sea, making the sound of the waves the soundtrack of your vacation. It is very well equipped and makes you feel like at home, because the owner provides more than what you usually can find in a rental home. Unfortunately, the apartment is old and needs improvements, especially in the bathroom which is very old. We found a water leakage in the bath which the owner said they discovered right before our arrival and that would have be fixed right after our departure. The doors too are very old. The elevator was out of order for maintenance, and the works delayed many weeks respect to the original schedule. The results was elevator unusable for a long period. In our week we found technicians working only for few hours. But that is responsibility of property management, not the apartment owner. Last notice, very often previous guests leave foods in the fridge which owners do not remove, probably thinking that would be appreciated by entering guests. We have taken that as a courtesy, but in our opinion the fridge should be better empty and cleaned for entering guests, since not all persons have same tastes."

  • Best Stay Ever

    "We have been to the Princess a few times and this is by far the best unit I have been in. The unit has been updated and feels like home. We love the princess for the privacy and the laid back feel of the west side."
