Wow. What a beautiful peaceful place--so different from the noise and craziness of Honolulu. We loved our time at Pat’s. The condo was comfortable and had everything we needed. It sits at the end of the floor which allows a great view of the ocean. We sat on the lanai every morning watching the waves and the beautiful sunrise. The January rain didn‘t allow us to spend as much time on the beach as we wanted to but we still enjoyed the stay. We enjoyed kayaking and boogie boarding at Kahana Bay, a ten minute drive south, and the Polynesian Cultural Center, which is just ten minutes to the north. We’re already planning a return trip. Thanks Kathy and Kathe.

WOW Paradise found....we spent 10 wonderful days in this absolute ocean front condo, we still cannot believe we found such a perfect place for us.. away from the " touristy" stuff in Waikiki We snorkeled with turtle and colourful fish and played in the waves everyday, the pool and hot tub in the evening was a great way to end the day, still close enough to Ko'olina and Waikiki that you can go do the tourist stuff, but far enough away that you felt like you were on a private island, THis is the best condo in the resort  !!!  Thanks to Kathy and the staff at the resort for the best vacation we have had to date , We Will Be Back.....

My wife and I had  adjoining units with my daughter and her family on the ninth floor of the Hawaiian Princess in Makaha.  Daughter and family stayed one week, we stayed two.  We all felt that Hawaiian Princess has got to be be Oahu's best kept secret.  The beach is ideal, never crowded, and the surf and ocean swimming were safe for little kids (and big ones).  Ocean water temperatures in July were warm and very pleasant.  The swimming pool was also excellent and never crowded. Security and privacy for the building and parking areas were tops.   I think the weather in Makaha is better than in Waikiki--I tracked both places a few times and Makaha was always not quite as hot and humid.  The weather in Makaha was ideal--plenty warm and great for sun tans.  In the two weeks we were there it probably rained for ten minutes.  The units themselves were more than we expected--everything we could need was provided.  Never needed the A/C as the breezes were perfect.  We could always hear the surf crashing on the beach--something I loved.  The lanai was our favorite "room" with nice breezes and great views.  The local Hawaiians were all friendly.  We saw turtles swimming by a few times, sail boats and some spectacular sunsets.  The grocery shopping at nearby Tamura's and Sack and Save will provide everything you need.   Kathy handled all the rental business/arrangements on a very professional level.  Everything was perfect.  We hope to go back again next year.  !

Just wanted to drop you a note to let you know about the fantastic time we had while staying at your condo in punaluu!! Ph5 The condo was gorgeous, clean, and the location was perfect. This condo is situated in such a perfect area. It was quiet and so relaxing. Kathe with an e was so accommodating. We had people come to meet us on our last day there. They didn’t get there until an hour after we should have checked out. We called her and asked if it was ok to stay for another hour. She said sure and when she arrived and saw how clean we had left the condo she said I will start upstairs and you all visit for another hour if needed. Fabulous, we said. There is so much more I could tell you about our vacation but I won’t bore you with all the details!!! So…… we are now planning our next trip there.

The condo that we stayed in far exceeded our expectations. It was spotless. The view and the sunrise were just beautiful. The amenities were exceptional. We will be back. You simply can't go wrong with in our experience.

My wife and i spent a week in unit 103 in february of 2011. When we initially booked out in Makaha we had many people raise questions to us about the area and it being out of the way etc. This caused us to be a little concerned but after being there, it was so beautiful and peaceful that we’ve already booked our next trip for next January. The Hawaiian people were great and the area was a perfect distance away from the hustle bustle of Honolulu and the beach might’ve been the nicest beach on the entire island.

We enjoyed ourselves so much at the Hawaiian Princess. Away from the hustle and noise of touristy Waikiki. True Hawaiian serenity. Thank you. We will be back again.
Audrey - Metlakatla, AK

Thank you so much for allowing my husband and I to share in the breathtaking view and serenity of your condo. It allowed us to reconnect after a long 8 months of him being gone on deployment. The sound of the ocean was so soothing at night and helped us to sleep great. I will recommend you to family and friends who are looking for a great and relaxing place to stay away from all the chaos in Waikiki. Thanks for also opening our eyes to how lucky we are to live in paradise. Thank you once again.

Sandy and Mike - Honoululu

The Punalu'u condo is well-appointed and comfortable. We loved the country setting - especially the peace and quiet. Kathy is wonderful - caring and professional. We hope we will be able to return next year.
Rob and Melinda - Seattle, WA

What a wonderful place!!! This part of the Island was truly the most beautiful sight we have ever seen. There was no better place for us to have spent our 20th wedding anniversary. Hopefully one day we can return and soak up the wonder and beauty again! Thank you so much for sharing it with us.
Todd & Karen - Oak Ridge, NC

We had an absolutely relaxing time for our first trip to the islands. I would recommend the Princess to anyone who wants to get away from the people and enjoy snorkeling and sunsets of Paradise. The waves had us sleeping like babies every night. I hope at least once in their lifetime everyone gets to experience a getaway like the one offered at the Hawaiian Princess. Thank you or Mahalo.
The Brierlys - Des Moines, I

The condo was absolutely wonderful!  I was a bit nervous booking in an unknown facility, going strictly off information found online, but it exceeded every expectation.  I'm very glad we decided to stay out in Makaha rather than in Waikiki, with all the noise, traffic, and crowds. Each time we went into the city we wondered aloud why people would want to spend all of their precious vacation time there.  The Waianae coast provided an experience reminiscent of Maui, but at lower prices.
Jason - Westminster, CO

This unit has been a joy to stay in. Very fun and decorated so lovely. Really makes you feel like you're on a pampered vacation.
Mary & Mark - Brier, WA

We had a wonderful time while staying in your condo - it has all that we needed....The water is so clean (especially noted after swimming at Waikiki) and warm. ..Thanks for a nice relaxing place to come to that's well equipped and clean.
Jon & Gwen - Hillsboro, OR

The area here is a natural treasure. This was our first trip to Hawaii and to be greeted by the spectacular view from the lanai was unforgettable. We loved the condo-many small touches make it feel homey. We will always remember the rhythmic sound of the surf and our sightings of sea turtles in the ocean. Everyone we met here was wonderful, and above all happy! Our best vacation ever, and we hope to do it again.
Mike and Elizabeth - Thunder Bay, ON Canada


We had a wonderful week in your condo. Everyone is friendly and the beach is great! After our trip to Waikiki and all the crowds of people, it was heaven to return here and relax.
Dick & Belva - Ogden, UT

We've spent a wonderful week here! Lots of great activities on Oahu and then so nice to come back to the Hawaiian Princess and it's beautiful beach. The kids loved having their own condo and TV's. It's so beautiful here we hate to go home.
Dan & Cathleen - Durham, CA

It's so beautiful here. I love the view-just sitting on the lanai is awesome. We saw turtles, dolphins and whales everyday. And you can go snorkeling right out front and see beautiful fish. Everything was perfect.
Jenifer and Jeff - South Weber, UT

PEACEFUL, RELAXING, BREATHTAKING, no superlatives able to cover it - WOW! Thank you for sharing paradise.
C.C. - Missoula MT

This is our 4th year coming to the Hawaiian Princess and this unit is the "best" I have seen....We like the whales, dolphins and turtles. Today we saw some whales come right out of the water - what a sight.
Dennis - Exshaw, AB Canada

There are no words to describe this place! We decided to stay in a place away from the hustle and bustle and I don't think we could have picked a better spot. The sunsets are sooo beautiful! They will be engraved in our memories for a lifetime! Thank you for your wonderful hospitality, we will definitely be coming back.
Brandon & Stephanie - Cedar Rapids, IO

What an amazing month we've spent here! The sound of the ocean and the incredible sunsets from the lanai have completely won our hearts....The condo is beautiful and the right size. Your decorating is right-on. We love the fish theme! We hope to come back sometime soon.
The Gatherums - Roy, UT

I still cannot believe I found one of the most beautiful places in the world on your great website. The sunsets from our lanai were breathtaking every night as well as our snorkeling with the sea turtles. We will be back next year for at least two weeks with the whole family.
