  • Simply Amazing Vacation Spot

    "My niece and I traveled to Oahu for her 30th birthday. After much deliberation, we chose Pam's condo in Makaha. It could not have been a more excellent choice. Pam was wonderful to deal with, replying promptly to my various questions and giving us so much wonderful information about the condo and the area. The condo is even more beautiful than the pictures show, and that lanai...I have no adequate description for the view from it. We spent HOURS out there- watching the waves, the surfers, the turtles, the spouting humpback whales, the boats, the morning sunbeams playing on the turquoise waves as it rose over the condo, and the stunning display it created as it dropped down into the ocean in the evening. It was lovely to fall asleep to and wake up to the sound of the crashing waves. We both enjoy cooking, so we had stopped for groceries on our way from Honolulu to Makaha (we rented a car). We were very happy with the various cooking and dining supplies Pam has used to stock the kitchen, and were able to enjoy our own meals on the lanai. The view makes good food even more delicious! :) We even used the lovely gas grill down in the common area one night. The bed in the condo was very comfortable, and the shower is amazing. The condo is tiny, but the layout, the mirrors and windows and doors, and Pam's bright mermaid theme all work together to create a bright, breezy feel. I appreciated the security of knowing that our rental car was safe inside a locked gate, and that the condo had limited access. Also, even with as large as the Cabanas is, I heard practically no noise from neighbors above, below, or an either side. Everyone was so helpful and respectful of others. The beach in front of the condo would collect a few people as the day progressed, but compared to the crowded eastern shore beaches we typically visit, this one felt like we had the place all to ourselves! The waves here are larger than we're used to, but the Ko'olina lagoons are not far; we went swimming there one afternoon. However, those large waves were an attraction that took us to the North Shore several times, just to watch the surfers. Traffic can be awful, but we were aware of that when we chose this location. We went on several day trips, but spent most of our time at the condo or the local attractions like Ka'ena Point, where we saw albatross, seals, and lots of whales. Our stay here was nothing short of amazing, and we both have so many lovely memories. Thank you, Pam!!"

  • Perfect location on the west coast's best beach!

    "We could quite happily have sat on this balcony for the rest of our days! A trip to Makaha is not a 5 star tourist trap. It is an opportunity to stop, relax and enjoy a truly beautiful spot. Our family of 4 surfed, snorkled, and soaked up the winter sun. Seeing turtles, whales and dolphins was a daily event that Waikiki tourists paid $200 each to hop on a boat and cruise to our beach to experience. A hire car is highly recommended as there are no restaurants or cafes in walking distance, and we also made use of the full kitchen. Using this great condo as our base, we were easily able to explore every corner of Oahu. The North Shore, Polynesian Cultural Centre and Kuoloa Ranch are all fantastic day trips and getting around the island is really simple. You are pretty much an hour and a half from anywhere. Even though we visited in December, the wet season, Makaha always had exceptional weather and we were rained on every time we headed inland. The onsite management, Vern and Al, are fantastic. They gave us tips on where to visit as well as information on local surf conditions and places to eat. Respect for the locals goes a long way here. The condo has everything you need and is certainly the best in the block. We crammed in 2 adults and our 2 boys, 14 and 10, and had a ball. The kitchen is fully equipped, the space is comfortable and well furnished and the balcony exceptional. There is even snorkelling gear and body boards for your use. We can't recommend this condo highly enough. If you want a chilled, truly local experience without the hustle of a tourist hub, you will love this condo."

  • Memorable stay

    "Our 8 nights stay at Hawaiian Princess became one of the most memorable stays. The unit was equipped with everything we needed. We were spoiled having a direct access to the nice beach right in front of the property. The clean & uncrowded beach was so nice that we spent most of the time there. We snorkeled and saw tons of fish swimming right below us. We saw some turtles swimming by us as well. There were rocks just a few yards out in the water where the fishes found their hiding spots. We were thankful that the unit was equipped with gears including various sizes of water shoes we could use. We had a few days when the wave was a little strong that even a good size adult can lose balance, but the rest was fine. The view from lanai in the morning and sunset was priceless. The only down side is that the property is located in a little suspicious neighborhood tucked away from tourist attractions. Since we spent most of the time either in the gated property or driving out to tourist attractions, we did not mind the neighborhood. The traffic to/from Honolulu was usually heavy, at least 1/2 hour to Kapolei (about 15 miles) or 1-1.5 hour to Honolulu (about 35 miles). If your main purpose to stay in Oahu is to enjoy the beach, this is the place."

  • Perfect!

    "This listing was the perfect size for my husband and I to stay at, although we were in Oahu for a destination wedding so that took up most of our time. Joe was very helpful and checked in with us to make sure we had everything that we needed. On a few occasions we walked to the beach to enjoy the beautiful sunset. There are a bunch of cats on the property and we enjoyed saying hi to them when we were around to do so. I would recommend this property to my friends and family because we had a convenient/guaranteed parking spot right outside the steps and the unit was very clean."
