“Our favorite getaway.”

Reviewed 7 Mar 2017

After many visits to Hawaii we have found our favorite getaway. This was our 4th visit to the Hawaiian Princess condo and we have enjoyed every stay. The beach is never crowded and we watch sea turtles from our lanai every day. We even saw whales on this most recent trip. We will definitely be back later this year. My wife and I do a lot of walking, and even though the surrounding area sometimes gets a bad rap, we have never had any problems of any kind. The view from the condo is spectacular and the sunsets beautiful. My personal favorite time is early morning sitting on the lanai drinking my coffee and reading my Bible while the sound of the ocean waves fills the air. The personnel at the condo are the best.

“Great Condo”

Reviewed 3 Aug 2016

The condo was perfect. Clean, convenient, secure, and well stocked. We realled like the large corner unit, which gave us two large lanais. The ocean view and sounds of the ocean were a highlight. I highly recommend this unit!

“Awesome rental with spectacular views”

Reviewed 17 Jul 2016

My wife and I love staying in Fred's condo at the Hawaiian Princess. It is different than the other condos because Fred's has a wrap around lanai and the views are breathtaking. You are on the sand and in the warm Pacific Ocean in seconds. The condo has everything you need to make your stay easy. A complete kitchen, nice beach towels, snorkel gear, and all the stuff needed for a day on the sand. So, if you love a gorgeous view, sounds of the ocean crashing and watching people play in the surf, then this condo is for you. Turtles swim by that you can watch from the lanai and we viewed many turtles on the sand at the beach a 1/2 mile north. You won't be sorry if you choose Fred's place and for sure, you'll be back!

“What an awesome find”

Reviewed 17 Jul 2016

My wife and I were looking for a place away from the hubbub and traffic of Honolulu and found this place in paradise. We were blown away. Here's what we appreciated about this condo: 1) The view was fantastic no matter what time of the day it was. We even saw a turtle from the corner of the lanai. 2). The condo is very spacious, was very clean when we checked in, very comfortable, very private and very quiet. We felt very much at home. 3). The louvered window in the changing room added a nice breeze that could be felt throughout our stay 4) The kitchen was very user friendly and well stocked with everything we needed to cook with. 5). Although there were only two of us that got to enjoy this great place having a half bath and a full bathroom with a great shower was a blessing. 6). Really appreciated the fact that most of the light switches were labeled making nightly searches to turn lights on or off a "nonexistent" chore. 7). Finally kudos to the staff at the "Hawaiian Princess" including security, house keeping, grounds keeping, and the times share office. They were like a big "Ohana/family" going out of their way to answer our questions and giving us directions to the grocery stores, and Longs Drugs. Kudos also to the head pharmacist at Longs Drugs who gave us directions to the Emergency Room and filled my wife's perscriptions. The Makaha/Waianae Ohana are awesome! We will be back!

We have stayed here many times. We love sit and have our meals on the Lanai . From the 13th floor you can see the turtles swim by and watch the people playing at the beach. This is an awesome place and we highly recommend it. The water is warm and a very private beach. The bed is comfortable with soft sheets. Don't worry about bringing towels, plenty of towels and beach toys at the condo. We love it so much, we will be back again next year.

“nice vacation”

Reviewed 21 Oct 2015

stayed at Freds spacious condo for 8 days.The Hawaiian princess building is situated on a very nice part of the island up the eastern coast. Although the building was built in 1980 it seems to be kept in pretty good condition. they have new elevators and while I was there they had workers on a scaffold working on windows/or railings.this was no inconvenience at all. Freds condo is on the 13th floor of 18 floors. It is on the corner that affords the best of views.If I was to have my choice of any condo in the building, it would probably be his. He has new appliances with just about any cooking untensils you could ever need. He was very prompt and easy to communicate with. I highly recommend his condo.

“Home Away From Home”

Reviewed 12 Sep 2014

We were lucky enough to stay here for a little over a week, and what a treat it was! Every sunset was stunning, we watched sea turtles and even whales from our wrap around lanai, if there were 5 people on the beach, it was a busy day! What a blessing to have for this unit on the 13th floor ;0) Sheer heaven! We would book here again in a heartbeat! Thank you Fred!

“Time in paradise”

Reviewed 18 Mar 2014

This is the fourth time we have stayed at the Hawaiian Princess, and the second time for unit 902. We love the accommodations. The view is spectacular, and the beach is the best one we've found on the four main Hawaiian islands. Kathy is a gem to work with. Everything one needs except for food is provided. The out -of-the -way location (not on the tourist path) makes it seem like your own private enclave. The gated property and friendly security compliment the relaxed atmosphere. Fellow vacationers and residents are more than willing to offer tips and experiences for your choosing. We can't wait to return!

“Unit 1508 is FANTASTIC!”

Reviewed 21 Oct 2013

So, I read a ton of reviews on Yelp before I decided to book the Hawaiian Princess and am so happy I decided to give them a try! Specifically, unit 1508, a very clean, 1 bedroom, newly upgraded, well decorated (think Tommy Bahama island) corner unit. Corner unit being key, the views were spectacular, literally on a fantastic beach with great swimming, and you have your own private, locked gate so no one can walk up to your door. The unit is well stocked in the kitchen, nice washer dryer, plenty of towels and 4 big beach towels, 2 beach charis. I found the staff very friendly (just be courteous and follow rules about washing sand off before heading into condo), parking was easy and secure. I am fairly picky about my lodgings and this unit was perfect, super clean, no bugs, really comfortable couch and furnishings. In terms of the area, it's true there are NO touristy places here..it's all very working class and local and is basically at the end of the road of the leeward side, but I felt safe always and the locals were super nice. So the deal is, if you are fine with a more remote location, ( it's also not as lush as the other side of the island) and are cool with shopping at the well stocked local market, don't need a bunch of nightlife....if you are really just wanting to spend a bunch of days on a perfect beach, with clear warm water and have a clean nice, QUIET, condo with awesome views right on the sand, this is the spot for you. Nothing fancy, totally local. Didn't even go to the small pool. Lots of older people live here, this is not a loud party type condo at all....hardly even heard other people the whole week....mellow and relaxing.

“INCREDIBLE VACATION”

Reviewed 3 Jul 2013

There's nothing better than to have breakfast on the balcony and see dolphins playing and turtles swimming in the ocean. What an incredible way to start each day. Accommodations were great. The beach was great, not crowded at all. Couldn't have asked for a better vacation.

We had a wonderful vacation at the Hawaiian Princess. The location was perfect, right on the beach away from the crowds. The beach was quiet, uncrowded with beautiful sunsets. We enjoyed the snorkeling and seeing the turtles. All the locals we met were friendly and helpful.
The condo was very nice,clean, roomy and fully equipped. Having the corner unit was great because of the extra space and extra bathroom.
The master bedroom room was spacious and we enjoyed seeing and hearing the ocean from the bedroom.
We enjoyed the gas barbecues and the pool and jacuzzi.
The condo and beach were prettier than the pictures.
We had a great time and plan to return.
