  • 5 STARS ✯✯✯✯✯ AMAZING Beach Front Condo!!!!

    "My girlfriend and I stayed in this beautiful updated condo for a week. It was everything we could hope for..... and more! This was our first time in Hawaii together and we couldn't have chosen a better location than this condo in Makaha. The locals call it Turtle Beach and it's worth every penny. The condo has an awesome view of the super blue ocean water with a nice gentle trade wind breeze and it's situated right on the beach... out the lobby door and you are in the sand! We wanted to have a quiet location to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday and this was perfect... away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. We did need a car to get around and do sightseeing ... but it was great doing our 'own thing' and seeing the whole island, that is... when we weren't enjoying our 'private beach' and the wonderful lanai in the condo. We saw a few dolphins and turtles from the lanai. The condo was exactly as described and was fully stocked with everything we needed, including all the 'stuff' we needed for the beach. We just had to buy our food. My girlfriend and I would definitely come back to this stunning condo again, we wished we could have stayed longer! Some day, we will be back and rather than celebrating her birthday here... I may just ask her to marry me!!! Thank you Kathy for letting us enjoy your gorgeous condo! Hawaii is heaven on earth..... Mahalo & Aloha, Roger and Ebony."

  • beautiful sunset and quiet beach setting away from crowd's

    "We stayed two weeks here and just returned home. We had a great time, very nice to have beach towels, umbrella, fins, snorkel, mask provided for use in the unit. The air in the morning was fresh, plumeria was full bloom so it had a nice sweet aroma. We liked the local feel and fact it was away from the hustle of the Honolulu area. We did drive into the city a few times but spent most if our time there at the property enjoying its great beach. I will recommend the property to family and friends going to the island. Read other review concerning wave and road noise but we only experienced the noise on the first night. We quickly became adjusted and the salt air made us sleep great at night. Stars and moon were a highlight since your away from the big city you can really appreciate the night sky. Thanks for allowing us to stay, we will be returning on our next visit to Oahu. Mahalo from shad & tanya from the Pacific Coast."

  • Immaculate home with great views!

    "This home is immaculately kept with great views of the ocean and sunsets from every room! Mari is a wonderful host, no detail is overlooked and this home is extremely clean and well appointed. We loved being away from the tourists and having the beach to ourselves. Everybody was so nice and we went to the Tamura market, LnL Hawaiian BBQ, Waianae boat harbor, Sacred Heart Catholic Church, West Oahu SUP and Makaha beach and were greeted with Aloha every place we went. We all felt so at home we started thinking we lived there and forgot we were visiting! I highly recommend this house for your next trip to Oahu!"

  • Best spot on Ohau!

    "We loved the accommodation at the Hawaiian Princess. We were wanting to get away from the busy tourist area and enjoy a relaxing holiday. The local grocery store was very close and the local people in Makaha were so friendly. The leeward side seems to miss the rain and has less wind so we could enjoy the beach every day. The unit had everything we needed for our stay and was truly right on the waterfront with a beautiful ocean view. It was great having the use of the beach chairs, boards and snorkeling equipment. We met some lovely people staying in the building and enjoyed evenings chatting around the pool. It was wonderful to be able to extend our last day so we didn't have to fill in a long day before our flight. Will most definitely come and stay again. Thanks Pat and Don!"
