Please feel free to contact us to confirm availability of of the unit.even if this "Guest Unit" appears booked on our VRBO calendar.

The unit was remodeled and upgraded recently. See interior photos.

Our recently remodeled and upgraded 4th floor unit in the Hawaiian Princess at Makaha are 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 the island of Oahu. These clear blue waters provide an ideal backdrop for photography, sunbathing, beachcombing, snorkeling, diving, bodyboarding, surfing, kayaking, boating, hiking or simply relaxing on the lanai. Makaha is located approximately 40 minutes from the airport by car and 60 minutes west from the hustle and bustle of the state capital Honolulu, famous Waikiki Beach. Most of the other major tourist attractions are an easy day trip away. Come and stay at the beach in this local rural community of Makaha. Enjoy the "local" environment, blend in with local residents, and experience some of the most beautiful, uncrowded sandy beaches on the island of Oahu. You can easily visit the famous Makaha International Surfing Beach in the next cove, North Shore's surfing spots, Pearl Harbor, or shopping, dining, and enjoying activities of Waikiki and Honolulu easily from this location. You can then 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 right on the beach with the Pacific Ocean at your door step. Few areas in Hawaii can boast of such an secluded, white sand, crescent shaped beach with waters flat at times for snorkeling and surf at other times for "riding the waves". This beach is often referred to as "Oahu's Best Kept Secret" . Very few travelers even know of this beach and it is not seen from the street. Our units faces the ocean with 180 degree view of this white sandy beach, clear blue ocean and the historic Lahilahi Point. The fabulous views, 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 all day at the beach. Marine life is abundant in this cove known as "turtle cove". Daily sightings of turtles, dolphins, whales (in season), monk seals, schools of fish, and more can be seen from your private lanai. You might even see the turtles on the beach being warmed by the sun.

This recently upgraded 1 bedroom /1 bathroom units can accommodate up to 4 persons and can be adjoined with our other unit resulting in 2 bedroom 2 bath unit. This combination of both units has been very popular with couples traveling together or larger families requiring the extra space. The unit has everything that you will need with fully equipped kitchen, linens, and beach gear. We have tried to think of everything for your comfort. We have free internet in the unit, smart TV in living rooms and bedrooms, newly created desk area to accommodate electronics and office work, large front loading washers and dryers, upgraded mattresses in each bedroom and art work of local artists throughout the units. Repeat guests are a norm at our units. Guests have been returning here year after year which confirms this is truly a "special place".

Car: Recommended

We think the west side of the island has the best weather on the island with lots of sunshine. Of course, we do visit the windward side to see the lush landscapes, experience the warm tropical rain, and frequent the many beautiful beaches, but it is always rewarding to return to the west side at the end of the day ! We love to take visitor to Waikiki for the day, but again enjoy returning to Makaha's finest beaches and clear waters.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Gerry, a registered nurse, and Mike , retired engineer with Boing Corporation, purchased these two units in 2013 and immediately realized this was a very "special place". We remodeled and upgraded both units at the same time. We have just started advertising our "owner's Unit" on VRBO# 854197 as of May 2016, but have many satisfied guests staying here since 2013. See the reviews posted on our "Guest Unit" VRBO # 507795. We have guests who repeatedly book these units year after year. We visit this location 2-3 times a year with our family and friends.

Why the Owner Chose Mākaha, HI, USA:
The Hawaiian Princess is a very popular year round destination. All units in the Hawaiian Princess have fabulous views of the ocean, beach and sunsets. This unit is recently, remodeled, upgraded, with the attention to all the details. The unit is clean, well maintained, and our personal management of these units has added to our success. We have tried to make this your home away from home. We want to share this piece of paradise with each of you!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The Princess sits right on the beach and the 180 degree Our guest repeated comment thaviews from the lanai are breathtaking. This location is not in the 'touristy areas' , yet Honolulu, Waikiki, and other attractions are and easy day trip. Our guests repeatedly comment how we have thought of everything to make you visit as comfortable as possible.
