Words cannot describe this Jewel of a place

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a little heaven; a place like home; one of the best beaches and the nicest people around - stop looking! This place has it all!!!! This apartment is equipped with anything you need. You are literally on the ocean so no need to drive to it. Like turtles? you can drive for an hour to Turtle Beach or walk out of the building and into a private turtle beach. The stuff in the building are so nice; the owner of this apartment are sweet and left a binder with endless things to do around the island. Going back in few months and defiantly staying on that beach again.

Loved this place!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for a week and enjoyed our stay immensely! We had 2 adults and 3 small children and it was perfect for our family. The beds were really comfortable and the view was amazing! The condo had everything our family needed for cooking and playing at the beach, which was great. The only complaint I had was that the bedroom TV wouldn't turn on and there was no AC in the front room. This wasn't a deal breaker since we weren't watching much TV and there was a great breeze all day long, which kept the front room cooler. The beach was pretty much empty the entire time and was perfect for swimming - even for the little ones. I loved that we were off the beaten path away from all the tourists, but still close enough to grocery stores for anything that we needed. The locals are so friendly everywhere you go - so much different than here in California! We drove all over the island during our stay and found that almost anywhere we wanted to go was within 40 min. to an hour of Makaha. Our favorite places to visit were Ko'Olina Lagoons (only 15 min. from condo) and North Shore (about 40 min. from condo). I highly recommend this condo to anyone that's looking for a nice relaxing place with an amazing view right on the beach!

Owner's Response: We are always so glad when we hear our guests enjoyed the condo and the neighborhood so much...We love it too! We had no idea the bedroom t.v was not turning on. Turned out to be a change of batteries in the remote was all it needed.

Great stay at the Hawaiian Princess

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Hawaii and we like to stay away from the touristy crowds. The Hawaiian Princess was perfect fro that. The beach is right in front of the unit with stunning views from the living room and lanai. The unit was well equipped with beach chairs, towels, and snorkels. The homeowner was very communicative and helpful throughout the process of booking this unit.

This is my idea of the perfect vacation rental! Secluded beachfront condo, 45 minutes from Waikiki!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd two week stay in this spacious, oceanfront condo. Each time we leave for home, we both agree that we need to come back next year, and our 2017 visit was no exception. This unit is on the 4th of 12 floors, a corner unit, with nearly twice the square feet of the other condos in the complex. We saw turtles swimming out front nearly every day. The snorkeling was not bad, and the owners have all the gear you might need: mask, snorkel, umbrella, chairs, towels, binoculars. Believe me, once you take in that first glimpse of the ocean view, you will agree: this is as close to paradise as you can get. We literally only left the condo for food and supplies. We go here to relax, and relax we did. Everyday on the beach. One day I counted 4 other people on this long stretch of beach. Seldom were there more than 20 people (some of the local kids would gather for a couple hours after to watch them interact with the waves ... these kids know how to have fun outside, not seen very often on the mainland).

The owner has furnished this unit with everything you could possibly need. The bed and pillows are very comfortable, as is the sofa and recliner. What was important to us was the internet, and would I be able to stream our Tivo from our home, to the TV in the unit. Worked beautifully. What was really sweet was streaming Comcast to my Ipad, outside, at night, with nothing but stars, ocean breeze and the surf lapping the shore. Used headphones so not to disturb others. This condo complex is super quiet!

The complex is clean and well equipped. The 2 bbq's worked great, and a fun place to share stories with other guests. This is a gated condo complex, so we felt very safe and secure. The "meet and greet" with the house cleaner upon arrival made it so easy to get to know the condo, complex, and anything else that one might want to know. This owner really cares that her guests have a fantastic vacation.

If you are interested in fancy restaurants, and tourist activities, this i not the condo for you. The one restaurant that we visit, and I would recommend, is the Crawdad and Crab Shack, about a 15 minute drive. We did a great tour of the island last year, and took the bus from the Aulani Disney Resort (about 25 minutes away). This year we drove to the Polynesian Cultural Center, about and hour and a half drive. Amazing. Well worth it. Shop at Costco, and Sack n Save (like Safeway, with a local flair...about 1/2hr from the condo).

Exactly as advertised

  • 5 of 5

It is rare to walk into a a holiday vacation rental and find that the view is EXACTLY as described and that there has been absolutely no creative photography. If anything, the beach was better than described.....during our stay I don't think there were ever more than 50 people on the entire beach. Gail's "guidance" was very helpful as to shopping. It's a shame that there isn't a good bar or restaurant closer than Ko'olina but Gail can't control that!

Janitorial Company

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely beautiful! It was our 48 Anniversary and we had a perfect week. Saw whales every day from the balcony. Sunrise and sunsets were worth every cent. Got a fantastic video of a turtle coming up out of the water and coming up on the sand, turning around and going back into the water . Our friends who are Hawaiian loved the place. Gail was super in telling us every detail to make our stay very memorable.
