  • 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

    "We had an amazing stay at Tracy's condo. She has literally thought of everything in this condo. Drinks in the fridge, snorkel gear, beach chairs, sun screen, long distance calling... you name it, she has it there. This really saves allot of money considering things like renting snorkel gear cost $10 a person. The internet worked flawlessly (this is one of my pet peeves on vacation). There is a great balcony that has two chairs and a table that is surrounded by bamboo and palm trees - an amazing place to have coffee. The grounds around the condo are incredibly maintained. There are flowers, fruit trees and other tropical plants everywhere. There are crews there all the time maintaining everything and it really shows. There is allot to do here even within a 10 minute drive from the condo. Traffic seems to get really bad coming in and out of Honolulu during peak commuting times, but it is easily avoidable if you plan your days around it. Nothing but good things to say about this place! Incredible value! Thank you Tracey!"

  • Most relaxing vacation ever

    "My 18-year old son and I stayed at this property for 8 days. Every year we go to a new tropical island to scuba dive or snorkel and this location was by far the best experience we had so far. This place is close to everything that was interesting to us, yet remote enough that we never felt crowded. The condo was immaculate, the beach was pristine, the surrounding mountains were within reach and the food choices were plenty. We never had to run the AC since the constant breeze was enough to keep us cool. Falling asleep every night to the sound of the waves was therapeutic. Watching sunsets every night was a far better show than watching the TV. I wish we can come back someday. Kathy was great to deal with and she let us have a very late checkout on the day of our departure. Thank you!"

  • Comfortable, private, and away from the busy tourist activity.

    "We went here in part for our anniversary...it was a wonderful and relaxing stay! From the lanai overlooking the beach, we saw dolphins, surfers, and snorkelers enjoying the water. We met some wonderful residents poolside, and enjoyed feeling like we were locals instead of harried tourists. The sunsets were spectacular, and at night the stars and moon were bright and sparkly. A few times, we saw bioluminescent squid in the waves breaking on the beach at night...unexpected and intriguing! We were close to hiking trails, and snorkeling was perfect from the State Park beach next to us...which was never crowded. We saw many types of fish and some turtles lazily swimming beneath us. The breeze flowed through from 3 sides of the unit, and kept us pretty comfortable. The sound of the surf was all around...sort of "white-noise". We traveled all over the island, did some hiking and exploring, and it always was nice to come "home". In nearby Waianai, there were stores to meet grocery and personal needs, and some nice restaurants too. We liked Cochitas...a Columbian/Puerto Rican restaurant recommended by residents. But we usually bought local foods to prepare ourselves. "Big-Time" shopping is available also, about 30 minutes away...and also the intersection to go to the North Shore. We got souvenirs at the "Swap Meet" at Aloha Stadium (Halewa Stadium on the signs). The unit was clean and bright, and the bed was a comfortable memory foam type. We used our Netflix and Amazon accounts on the TVs, and watched the Seahawks!! Everything we needed was supplied in the way of cookware and beach supplies (towels, chair, umbrella)...hairdryer, and a coin-op laundry. The beach was easy to access, and we felt like we had plenty of privacy as we sat on the lanai to eat, read, or star gaze. The owners were great to work with, and the staff attending the property were nice folks...and nice to visit with. Traffic is slow...but you're on vacation, so just give yourself time to go at a sea-turtle's pace. We liked hiking up to Manoa Falls (above Waikiki) and Makapu'u Point lighthouse on the northeast of the island. We also drove almost all of the cross-mauka roads and along the perimeter of the island...gorgeous!! There is a lot of history at Pearl Harbor, and many old gun placements and lookouts from the 1940s and 1950s all over. We liked the local farmers' markets...the fruit is fantastic, and the avocados are the size of softballs! Come enjoy Makaha!"
