Overview

This is the condo that started it all for us over 20 years ago. We looked at lots of condos in lots of buildings, but nothing else compared. We simply fell in love with the views from this medium/high floor unit, and we know you will too! You can watch for whales in the winter months, and look for giant sea turtles, sea rays, Hawaiian monk seals, and other creatures year-round. This is truly one of the most spectacular beaches you’ll ever see! We also have an adjoining unit (Princess 4) if you’re traveling with friends or family who require their own space!  Ask about specifics please.

Princess 1 is a beautiful, remodeled beachfront condo. Enjoy this light, airy, bright, and clean condo on your next magical trip to Hawaii.

This totally gorgeous, carefully-detailed condo has tiled floors throughout—it’s got all the special features for your dream vacation in paradise!

When we say beachfront, we mean it! The Princess building sits right on the beach—as you can see in the beautiful pictures below. It’s got a 180-degree, unobstructed view of one of the most beautiful beaches on Oahu.

The Princess building has a roof-mounted, water-cooled AC system which is NOT like the AC you may be accustomed to—it will simply never get icy cold.  If you require super cold AC, this may not be the condo building for you. 

Condo has ceiling fans, stand fans, GREAT cross-ventilation, and normally WONDERFUL trade winds that keep the condo very comfortable.

We like to book at least 5-7 nights unless we have a gap in our bookings, so please ALWAYS ask us before you finalize your booking. We may be able to accommodate you and your party for a shorter or longer stay! We aim to please!

For Easter, July 4th, Labor Day, and Thanksgiving, please add $10 per night to the regular charges.

Please check out the rates page for information  or contact us for more information.  We reply to email very quickly!

Please note that a 14.97% Hawaii State Tax will be added. Additionally, $175 & Up will be charged for cleaning depending on how many guests you have, how long you stay, and the ages of the children accompanying you. The maximum number of people in an accommodation is 4; however, depending on the circumstances and the ages of  children, we can sometime flex with this.

You will be required to pay one-third of the rental cost to confirm your reservation and pay the rest of the balance within 60 days before your arrival. For Christmas/New Year dates, you are required to pay 90 days in advance.

A 100% refundable deposit of $300  is required when you make your booking. This amount is taken in the form of a CREDIT CARD AUTHORIZATION (CCA) that is NOT PROCESSED–simply held in case of anything missing, damaged (including EXTREME SCRUBBING or STAINS THAT CANNOT BE REMOVED) at post-departure inspection.  If all is OK, we VERY HAPPILY email you to let you know that your CCA has been shredded.  We are very careful with CC info, and hope you understand that we must protect our investment and ensure our property is in good condition for future guests. We assure you that 99.9% of our guests have their CCAs shredded– it is only the very rare careless guests that make this necessary.
