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!"

"Spent a week here over Christmas. The location and beach are stunning. The waves were very big during our whole stay, and were really too big for our 7/9 year old kids to play in. They got beat up a few times and then retreated to the beach to play. The ocean was cold so we tried the pool, but it is not heated and is even colder than the ocean. There are other calmer beaches nearby, so we explored others where our kids could play and swim in the water safely. The unit itself is small, but very well equipped. The fridge had basic condiments, salad dressings, etc and a spice cupboard was quite well stocked. The only thing I missed during the week was a potato masher when making our Christmas dinner, which was not a big deal at all. There were 3 good boogie boards, life jackets, sand toys, snorkel gear and beach chairs all provided. The queen bed was comfortable, but the sofa bed was awful. You could feel every spring, so after the first night my children chose to sleep on the floor on futon mattresses that are supplied. We had issues with the washing machine making a horrendous grinding sound during the rinse cycle and the property manager was away during our stay, so this was a bit frustrating. On the 4th day we finally received a call from the owner. She was very kind and was aware of previous problems with the machine. We were still able to use the washer for the remainder of the week, but during the day only and not while anyone was sleeping, due to the loud noise. The toaster wasn't working for us either, but after speaking with the owner a new toaster was delivered to our door. I would absolutely stay here again. Lots to see and do in the area and within a 30 minute drive. I found it a bit noisy to sleep at night with traffic and building noise, but by turning on the floor fan in the bedroom I was able to drown it out. One more thing . . . We frequently ran out of hot water and would have to wait between showers. Not that big a deal while on holidays but I wouldn't want to deal with that every day."

"My husband & I just returned home from a wonderful 12 day stay at the Hawaiian Princess. The unit was set up with everything we could need. The kitchen is nicely stocked with nice assortment of cooking needs-many spices, lots of cookware, dishware and serving pieces. The bedroom,eating and living room spaces were nicely furnished and comfortable. The best part is the lanai that has an amazing view of the beach & ocean. We saw whales, turtles and sunsets that were spectacular. We walked everyday around the area and enjoyed golfing at the Makaha golf course that was just minutes away. We ventured out of the area a couple of times-once to drive up to the North Shore to watch the surfers and golf at Turtle Bay and another golf outing to Ewa Beach. Both easy drives but for the most part we just enjoyed the quiet beauty of Makaha Beach. Kay and her husband were easily available for any questions-thanks Kay!"

"Our family stayed in the house for two weeks. I would recommend this house for anyone who wants a fantastic back yard right on the beach. We saw spinner dolphins from the lanai on several occasions, and yes they were out of the water spinning, monk seals on the beach and many, many, turtles. The younger group of family swam out to the turtle cleaning station. The house has everything you need for cooking, large kitchen table for playing games with the family, long counters to have buffet style dinners, picnic tables for the back lawn (we ate dinner out there several times), and beach equipment. Inga's Realty was great to book our trip through. This is the more rural side of the island, so rent a car if you want to travel around the island. Plenty of parking at the house. Thank you for sharing your house."
