We stayed on the top floor, corner unit 1601. This unit has a wrap around lanai. The security at this building was very good. There is a gated entrance into the parking lot, a fob is required to access the elevator, and there is a security guard on premise. Unit 1601 also has the added security of a gate before you can access the front door. The nice thing about this is you can leave the screen door from the LR open and also the screen door in the bedroom without having to worry. The unit was clean, but it is dated. What you're paying for is the view which is incredible. There were two a/c units, a separate one apparently for the bedroom. That unit worked well, but the other one for the rest of the condo did not seem to work. It was not a big issue for us as this time of year was not very warm and we got a cool breeze from the lanai. The unit was well stocked with all the necessities and there were also extra shampoos, sunscreen, etc, which were probably left behind by other guests. Before you hit the market, you may want to see what is all available in the unit.. There were chairs and a beach lounger in a closet as well as an umbrella and some beach toys. There is also a washer and dryer in the unit. The mattress was very comfortable in the bedroom. My husband enjoyed sleeping on the lounge chair on the lanai, so he could enjoy the ocean breeze and hear the waves all night. This area is not a tourist area, but primarily local. If you're looking for trendy restaurants and bars, you will not find it here. However, there are several local restaurants that are very good. There is a locally owned grocery store, only a few miles from the condo. There are a lot of homeless in this area. In fact there is a beautiful rocky point that we wanted to walk out on, however, there were several homeless camps on the pathway. We were never approached by anyone wanting money or anything like that, so it wasn't a huge deal to us. All of the beaches along the road had homeless camps and it was unfortunate to see the desperateness and all the trash piled up. Don't let that necessarily deter you from renting a unit here as it is very secure and we never had problems. Just wanted someone to be aware of it. I had seen the reviews and was aware of it. It was not like this 2 years ago when my sister stayed here.

We did not want to stay in Honolulu during our trip to Oahu, and were quite happy with our stay at the Hawaiian Princess Resort. It was farther up the coast than I had expected, with not much available in the immediate area. However, that was more than made up for by the amazing views with all units waterfront. Not having to deal with the Honolulu traffic everyday was another big plus. While not a super luxury resort, it was very nice and had everything we needed. I would recommend especially if you want to avoid the city.

We loved our stay here! The room was adorable and we spent so much time on our spacious balcony looking over the ocean. The beach isn't private but it was never crowded. Usually only a few other people swimming at the same time as me.

Our family really enjoyed our stay here, mostly for the beautiful beach. We loved eating meals on the balcony and looking for turtles and rays swimming in the shallows (we saw several!) The pool and hot tub were also nice, though for some reason security always locked the gate from the pool to the beach in the evenings, meaning you had to go all the way around the parking lot to get into the pool, but regardless we enjoyed it especially during the day. The beach is a little bit choppy. Our first day it was calm enough we were able to snorkel and saw some turtles and great fish! The next two however it was too choppy to be able to snorkel easily. All in all a fantastic location I'd highly recommend to people who want to enjoy the beach on this side of the island.

This is our first time staying on the west side of the island. We stayed in Waikiki on all our previous Oahu trips. All units here are ocean front with fantastic view. Our 2 bedrooms 2 baths unit was spacious for the 4 of us and has just about everything we needed for the week long stay. Washer and dryer in the unit. Beach chairs and beach towels were provided. Internet worked fine. Enjoyed breakfast and the relaxing view on the balcony every morning. Property is gated. A local supermarket not too far away for groceries. Several good location restaurants and the usual fast food chain restaurants. The beaches in the area are gorgeous. There are homeless folks in the area but no different than the other parts of Oahu. We saw the police clearing out the homeless encampments further up the coast one day. The police had several clean up trucks with them to dispose of the trash. We came shortly after Hawaii reopened to mainland US travel. There were not many tourists on the island, including the usually crowded Waikiki area before the pandemic. Some shops and restaurants were not reopened yet. We felt like we were in secluded paradise, both at Hawaiian Princess Resort and all throughout the Oahu island.

Very nice clean accommodations that are located right on a beautiful sandy beach, where daily turtle and whale sightings are only surpassed by the evening sunsets. If you are looking for a place that is located on a beautiful beach this is it!

My wife and I have had nearly 2 weeks here and it has been wonderful. Our condo unit is on main floor so we can just walk out onto the beautiful sand beach and into the water or sit on our deck to eat overlooking the beach and ocean. Fantastic! Parking is secure in a gated lot with security guard nearby and they have new Weber BBQ’s for making suppers here! And we are away from all the hustle and bustle of Honolulu which is an added bonus!

This was a timeshare exchange and we only stayed a few days but that was enough. The beach is great, the view, superb and the unit relatively new. This is not a resort, by any stretch. You feel like you’re in someone else’s apartment and in fact, I think some may live there or spend many weeks or months there. The area is a little remote and run down. Lots of homeless around, including the beach. We were warmly welcomed by the woman in the timeshare office who was nice throughout but not so much by the “regulars”. We were lectured about parking, banging on our wall because the washing machine was too loud (which we wouldn’t have used except we had to wash the bath and kitchen towels per house rules) and the icing on the cake - My husband was subject to a snide comment for wearing a Harvard University shirt in the elevator. They got a good laugh at our expense. Hope it was worth it. The exterior is dated although I think they are working on it. If you know what you’re getting into then you should be fine but if you want a more resort type of experience, or want to be closer to something to do, I’d skip it.

Mahalo for your candid review of our property. We apologize your stay wasn't what you had hoped for. Yes we do share our building with full time residents and many of our timeshare owners own multiple weeks for extensive stays. Thank you again for taking the time to write a review.

My hubby and I stayed at the Hawaiian Princess, Room 708. We cannot say enough about this condo!!! First off, this unit is a corner location and has the most incredible beach front and ocean view! Many hotels in Hawaii say they have a view, but I can tell you they are nothing compared to this! It’s also difficult to find a place that seems like you have your very own private beach! The condo itself is upscale, superbly decorated and extremely well appointed. We lacked nothing that we needed. Very well put together gourmet kitchen...even had spices available! The bed was sooooo comfortable and the whole place was spotlessly clean. Also, the owners went above and beyond in giving us recommendations on places to visit as well as eat! Love this place and we are so grateful to have found it! You don’t be disappointed if you decide to stay here for your next vacation!
