Our recently remodeled and upgraded 4th floor unit in the Hawaiian Princess at Makaha are one of the most sought after and revisited vacation destination on Oahu's west side. The west side of Oahu is known as the dryer and sunnier side of the island resulting in some of the clearest cleanest waters on the island of Oahu. These clear blue waters provide an ideal backdrop for photography, sunbathing, beachcombing, snorkeling, diving, bodyboarding, surfing, kayaking, boating, hiking or simply relaxing on the lanai. Makaha is located approximately 40 minutes from the airport by car and 60 minutes west from the hustle and bustle of the state capital Honolulu, famous Waikiki Beach. Most of the other major tourist attractions are an easy day trip away. Come and stay at the beach in this local rural community of Makaha. Enjoy the "local" environment, blend in with local residents, and experience some of the most beautiful, uncrowded sandy beaches on the island of Oahu. You can easily visit the famous Makaha International Surfing Beach in the next cove, North Shore's surfing spots, Pearl Harbor, or shopping, dining, and enjoying activities of Waikiki and Honolulu easily from this location. You can then return home to Makaha, enjoy the beach, swim in the pool, relax on your lanai, and unwind watching the sunset as the fabulous day closes and you recharge for another great day in paradise.
The Hawaiian Princess Condominium is one of only a few condominiums that are built right on the beach with the Pacific Ocean at your door step. Few areas in Hawaii can boast of such an secluded, white sand, crescent shaped beach with waters flat at times for snorkeling and surf at other times for "riding the waves". This beach is often referred to as "Oahu's Best Kept Secret" . Very few travelers even know of this beach and it is not seen from the street. Both of our units "Guest Unit" VRBO #507795 and "Owner's Unit" VRBO #854197Our face the ocean with 180 degree view of this white sandy beach, clear blue ocean and the historic Lahilahi Point. The fabulous views, spectacular sunsets, sounds of the waves and the close proximity to the beach makes this a perfect place to enjoy Hawaii's casual life style. Enjoy paradise, relax with the tropical trade winds, and play all day at the beach. Marine life is abundant in this cove known as "turtle cove". Daily sightings of turtles, dolphins, whales (in season), monk seals, schools of fish, and more can be seen from your private lanai. You might even see the turtles on the beach being warmed by the sun.

About Geralee (Gerry) Finney
Gerry, a registered nurse, and Mike , retired engineer with Boing Corporation, purchased these two units in 2013 and immediately realized this was a very "special place". We remodeled and upgraded both units at the same time. We have just started advertising our "owner's Unit" on VRBO# 854197 as of May 2016, but have many satisfied guests staying here since 2013. See the reviews posted on our "Guest Unit" VRBO # 507795. We have guests who repeatedly book these units year after year. We visit this location 2-3 times a year with our family and friends.

What A VIEW....
A great place just as described.Communication with the owner Gerry could not of been better. Highly recommend.
Fantastic condo on the beach
Located right on the beach. Very clean and well decorated place - has all the comforts of home. We would definitely stay again. Thank you!
Awesome place! Just as described, better than pictured! The view and the beach are amazing!
Gerry's place is absolutely gorgeous! We did not want to leave, our 5 days was not long enough! We wanted to just move in and with everything Gerry has available in the condo, we could have done just that. The views and sounds of the ocean, the beach is beautiful and practically private...you will have your own piece of paradise that you will not want to leave.
Gerry, is so nice and easy to talk to, there to answer questions and offer some great suggestions. She left a book about Ohana that is full of good information about the island, it came in handy.
The Tantalus Drive is a must do, an absolutely beautiful drive! The Shrimp Shack is a must do, the food is really good!
Although, Mahaka is on the quieter side of the island and away from all the touristy stuff, the drive to get to anywhere is not long. However, if it's the beach, swimming and snorkeling you want to do, it's all there at Gerry's place. She has all the beach and snorkeling stuff you will need.
We had a wonderful visit and will be back! Rent Gerry's place and you will not be disappointed! She even has another condo next door. There is a door between the two that can be opened to make an even bigger place, just ask her if you need more room.
Great Condo, Great Beach, Incredible Sunsets in a remote area of a Beautiful Island
We truly enjoyed our stay at the Hawaiian Princess at Makaha.
The unit is very nicely finished and was very comfortable for my Wife and I. The view from the lanai is spectacular and watching the sunsets was a treat. As an added bonus someone sounded a Conch every night at sunset. I'm not certain if this happens all the time or if it was just fortunate timing.
The condo is right on the beach and the beach is fantastic. The snorkeling was very good, much better that most of the resorts/condos we have stayed at. I enjoyed swimming from one end of the beach to other end and back almost every evening. We also enjoyed watching the kids play in the surf.
Makaha is almost at the end of highway and therefore fairly remote. This makes for a quiet peaceful resort with an uncrowded beach. It also means that there are not a lot of nearby restaurants or services. It took us about 45 mins to drive to the central part of the island and about 60+ minutes to Waikiki.
Jerry was quick to respond to queries.
Nice condo - rather remote which can be a plus - nice beach
Beautiful views in impoverished community
The gorgeous bay and mountain views are exquisite, the property generally well maintained, security is tight, but the neighborhood is unsafe in the evening... sadly, a considerable amount of poverty in the area.
We think the west side of the island has the best weather on the island with lots of sunshine. Of course, we do visit the windward side to see the lush landscapes, experience the warm tropical rain, and frequent the many beautiful beaches, but it is always rewarding to return to the west side at the end of the day ! We love to take visitor to Waikiki for the day, but again enjoy returning to Makaha's finest beaches and clear waters.
