Come, swim, and play in the warm aqua blue waters of the Pacific Ocean, or sunbathe on the uncrowded, unspoiled beach. You can snorkel, boogie board, paddle board, fish, or just relax with a 'cold one' while you watch Sea Turtles, Spinner Dolphins and Humpback Whales (in-season), or people having fun in the waves from the beach or your lanai. Two of the best island 18 hole golf courses are minutes away at the Ko olina Resort and the Makaha Valley resort. The world famous Makaha surfing beach is less than a mile away and home to several International Surfing Competitions in the winter months.

About Mary Christensen

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

Why Mary Christensen chose Oahu

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!

What makes this condo unique

The Hawaiian Princess is built right off the beach. The beach is pristine, white sand and ocean at Turtle Beach 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!

Relaxing and Warm!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time! We enjoyed sitting on the beach and the lanai and just watching the ocean. Also had fun in the waves and at the pool and hot tub! Overall this was a terrific time and we enjoyed ourselves. The only down side was being away from our family!

Life is better on the west coast

  • 5 of 5

This was my second time staying at this condo and I guess that says a lot. I have spoken to many people who have been going there for years. One man said that he has been going for 35 years and ended up buying a place because he loved it so much. If you go I guarantee that you will always go back. Once you have been to the west coast you will not want to stay anywhere else. Its close to everything that you want but you do need a car. With a car, and this as your home base, you can adventure tour the island and come back to a quiet and relaxing spot to enjoy the rest of your day. Its amazing. You will love the apartment. It has everything you need. Its clean and has an awesome view of the ocean and sunset. Go. Experience the best Oahu has to offer.

Awesome Condo

  • 5 of 5

Would like to say that the condo was nice and clean and had a great view of the ocean off the balcony to look out and see the whales jump out of the water in the early morning.

Hawaiian Princess - a Makaha Secret!

  • 4 of 5

This cute little condo was the ideal getaway for myself and my 2 daughters. We lead very stressful lives and did not want to be around traffic, ostentatious people, bars, loud music or noisy kids. We were in a little oasis of private beach, quiet adults, empty swimming pool and hot tub most of the time. The other people we did meet were polite and friendly. The staff working at the Hawaiian Princess were very kind and helpful. The condo had everything we could possibly need and was exactly as the photos portray with no hidden suprises. The beds were very comfortable, the beach toys, the chairs, and lanai all perfect. We loved seeing whales, dophins, huge turtles every day! We were actually pleasantly surprised by all these positive things. And the best part with the forecast being rain - the mountains around us held those clouds back and we got to enjoy sunshine every single day!

Great vacation spot. The condo had everything you needed. The views off the lanai was excellent. Mary was wonderful to work with for our first time in Hawaii. The drive sometimes going there was a little bad if I had to go through rush hour traffic l. Will be hoping to visit the condo again soon

Thanks Karla & Ted

We didn't want to come home after this vacation. The condo was very nice, clean and well kept. It had everything we could possibly need. We just bought a few groceries for the week. We still can't get over this gorgeous beach. For a week, we felt like we had paradise all to ourselves, very few people on the beach and everyone was friendly. Every morning and night we would take walks to enjoy the wonderful beach. We literally couldn't get enough. We usually like to visit our favorite beaches on the island in the North Shore and Lanikai but we have a new favorite. Nothing beats the sound of the waves crashing at night. This is the perfect place to have a relaxing vacation. We will love to come visit again. Thank you so much for opening your home to us.
