These are the owner's of the unit you will be visiting at the Hawaiian Princess, Neil and Mary Christensen enjoying a meal at Jameson By The Sea in Hale'iwa. The have the best mahimahi with macadamia nuts and mai tai's. We try to include a trip to this restaurant every time we are on Oahu! It's delicious and the view is spectacular!

We have been renting our unit out since 2010, even though we are new to join VRBO.

Mary Christensen purchased this condo in 2010

We have been coming to the Hawaiian Princess since 1981 when we purchased 2 weeks of timeshare interest. In 2010, when we were here vacationing, we had the opportunity to actually purchase our own condo unit. We still can't believe our luck and good fortune that enabled us to get our own piece of paradise. We love it here and hope you will enjoy your stay at our unit as much as we do!

The Hawaiian Princess is built right off the beach. The beach is pristine, white sand and ocean at Turtle Cove is beautiful, warm, and clear. It is probably one of the best kept secrets on Oahu because our beach is not crowded or spoiled, yet it is probably one of the best on Oahu for fun and enjoyment. This condo is not a hotel but a mix of owner's who live on site, vacation rentals, and timeshares. It is a secure building and has been well maintained. Come and relax and enjoy the beach way of life in luxury!

PERFECT GETAWAY TO ENJOY HAWAII AWAY FROM THE MADNESS OF OAHU

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed here for a week and enjoyed every day! The condo was beautiful and had everything we needed. I can't say enough about how beautiful the view was from the Lanai, and on three different afternoons we were able to see whales in the distance, and probably every day we could see turtles swimming near the shore. It became a ritual for us to watch the sunset every evening. We made use of the gas grills onsite to prepare our own meals a few nights which were maintained well and generally available where we only had to wait 5 minutes one time for access. Everybody we met was friendly and gave us great advice on the area, and the condo was equipped with a great notebook that detailed all this for us. Another note is that the location is on the leeward side of the island which worked out perfectly for us. The other side of the island was experiencing some spotty rain showers during the week we were there, but where we were at stayed dry and basically sunny all day with some spotty clouds.

Owner's Response: James and Victoria, We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay at our home. It's true, the view is so beautiful from the lanai that it is hard to believe. Glad you saw some whales and turtles too! Thank you for your kind words and we hope that you will be coming back to our special paradise. Mary & Neil

THE PERFECT PLACE TO ABSORB THE ESSENCE OF OLD HAWAII!

  • 5 of 5
This property exceeded our highest expectations. The whole experience was a positive one, from the ease of booking it to all the details needed to get there, and helpful guidelines each step of the way. The property is well maintained and includes everything you need for an unforgettable vacation. We love how it is between the mountains and the ocean, with the constant sound of the surf and the delightful trade winds. Sunsets are breathtakingly beautiful, followed each evening by the sounds of conch shells echoing through the valleys. Whether on the lanai or on the beach, it is a place you feel connected to. Everyone is friendly and helpful. Felt very safe in the area. It was exciting to discover that walking in the sand was easier on my knees than the solid ground. There is so much to see and do in the area that we didn't go into Honolulu to visit our daughter until after we checked out the last day. The only complaint, if you could call it that, is that the longer you stay, the harder it is to leave. We loved the decor and the welcoming feel of the condo. Mahalo for all the work done to make this possible!!!!

WONDERFULLY WELCOMING

  • 4 of 5
Our hosts ensured we knew how to get there, where to shop and even provided a picture of the person ahead that would be greeting us so we would know who to look for. We were also welcomed with chocolates and a calender...nice touch! Everything was lovely and there were far more supplies than anticipated. my advice is check in before you shop as other guests are kind enough to leave unused items for you. Everything was super clean and we really enjoyed this condo.

TERRIFIC VIEW

  • 3 of 5
If you go to this part of Oahu be prepared to be in the low rent district. There are no decent restaurants nearby, only fast food places. There is one market within a few miles. We went because we wanted to experience the "other side" of Oahu. Having experienced it we will not return. All of the units in this complex have terrific views over the ocean. While we were there the wind was very strong. The beach sand looks beautiful, but is very soft and difficult to walk upon. In all fairness their listing states this is a "budget" unit. It is. We are not comparing to Waikiki because we do not go there. We have stayed in Haleiwa on the North Shore but generally at Kihei on Maui. Kihei has become very crowded, but the beaches are terrific and there are lots of great places to eat. If you stay at a condo on the beach the crowd is not a problem.

I would point out that the kitchen is well stocked with condiments even though in their literature the owners say you should not leave any opened containers. Thankfully this practice is not followed. I mean why buy a full container of mustard for a couple of hot dogs. In most rentals you have to do just that. Here you do not. Be prepared, however, to have to purchase basic supplies like dishwasher soap and paper products as they only supply enough for a couple of days.

They have great WIFI and a terrific TV in the living room. We watched the Superbowl game there. It is a smart TV and I programmed it to provide free Pandora music and Netflix movies. All you need to do is push the orange button on the remote control to access these apps.

Other people have commented that the security guards are pushy. We did not experience anything like that. In fact everyone was very friendly. Old people tend to be that way. I suspect kids are not really appreciated.

Owner's Response: This is a part of Oahu that is not well known to tourists, which is why those of us who know this secret, keep it close to our hearts. This place is more laid back and relaxing, and in tune with the Hawaii way of life. The area is an eclectic mix of high end homes, middle and low income housing and poor people.
As noted, the town of Waianae does not have any high end restaurants although there are some nice places to eat that are not fast food, such as Taco's and More, Coquito’s Latin Cuisine, Spicy Thai, Cathay Inn Chop Suey, Da Crab Shack, and Kahumana Organic Farm & Café. There are, however, some very nice 4 and 5 star restaurants (Monkey Pod Kitchen, Roy's, 'Ama’Ama) in Ko Olina which is less than 10 miles from the Hawaiian Princess. In fact there are 21 different eateries on Ko Olina Resort, from high end to simple take outs and even an old fashioned ice cream parlor that also serves a wonderful High Tea.
As to the criticism about the sand being soft. It is a beautiful white sand beach and yes, the sand is soft. We do enjoy walking along the ocean each morning for our daily exercise, as well as do lots of other visitors to this cove and to our unit.
For a contrasting opinion of this area and our unit, please read the reviews from the other visitors to our home.

JUST WHAT WE NEEDED

  • 5 of 5
The view was spectacular and just what we needed. The relaxed pace, the view and being rewarded by spotting whales and sea turtles made this a place to remember and to return when we next visit. Thanks to Mary for sharing her home and to Billy for his helpfulness.
If you're in need of a place for relaxation, it doesn't get any better.

SHERRY

  • 5 of 5
Paradise, we had the most amazing vacation it was awesome to wake up and watch the whales, turtles etc even to watch the Hawaiian monk seal spend the day on the beach. The unit was very clean and decorated nicely the security staff were very nice always welcoming us and making sure everything was ok the binder of info was very much appreciated We met a lot of nice people. At first we were wanting the ground level but were glad we were on the 13th floor as the view was beautiful esp thru the binoculars To go to sleep with the sound of the waves was truly enjoyable Thank you for a very much deserving vacation
