  • 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."

  • Outstanding value, great stay in Oahu away from the busy areas!

    "This is our third experience with VRBO (our second booking directly). The owner and property manger responded to my email inquiries quickly, were both very professional and accommodating. The unit itself is quite spacious, modernized with nice furnishings and very clean upon arrival. A tasty bottle of wine and chocolates were an added touch and very much appreciated! Many living amenities and necessities were available; for instance, there are enough utensils/dishes for a week's worth of two meals per day for a couple. From the unit, there is quick access to the lower parking lot (visitors and placard parking) from the lower lobby and down the stairs. The complex is secure and guarded 24/7 and is way from the hustle and bustle of Oahu. The northwest side of the island has excellent hiking and scenery with quiet beaches nearby. That said, you must consider with tighter security, the property rules are stringent, especially with the parking placard and visitor pass. Be mindful the location does add extra time to travel and sightseeing other areas of Oahu. In exchange for being quiet and tranquil, this was very acceptable. Though the unit was well kept, the building itself is older and shower pressure could be a bit stronger, but note we are used to having a five gallon per minute waterfall at home :) Aside from these very minor things, we felt it was outstanding value for the nightly rate asked. We wouldn't hesitate to visit again and highly recommend this unit to anyone looking! Please kindly take a second to indicate if this review was helpful so I can focus my future efforts accordingly, thank you!"

  • 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!!"

  • So peaceful and restful.

    "We loved staying at your condo in Makaha. The views are spectacular from your lanai. The sunsets were amazing. Slept well every night with the waves crashing. Didn't need the air conditioning with the breeze coming through. Place was well appointed and clean. Pool and hot tub were well kept up and access to beach and snorkeling just down below. We were hoping to swim with the dolphins in at Makua or Yokahama beach down the road. Maybe next time. Fish at Makua and beach in front of condo were diverse. We were lucky to have gotten some snorkeling in before the swell came in but enjoyed watching the surfers at Makaha Surf beach that day. Loved the local Hawaiian feel of the area and how peaceful, quiet and beautiful the beaches were with the mountain range as backdrop. Such a nice getaway from the hustle and bustle of Honolulu. We will be back."
