Property Details

Updated: May 15, 2015
Villa, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 5 Sleeps

Waimanalo Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches on Oahu, with

five miles of undeveloped beach, white sand, turquoise water, and

stunning views of mountains ranges and off-shore islands. You will not

believe how beautiful it is here! Mostly the length of the beach is

either state park or public-accessible military reservations, making

it one of the least populated beaches on Oahu. This is one of the only

places in Hawaii where you can get away from to tourist mania, yet

still be central to all the tourist activities on the island.

Our vacation rental is ON the beach, meaning that you can walk

straight out your door, across the yard, and onto the beach without

ever seeing a car or road. Your bedroom has a beautiful panoramic view

of the water, as well as a panoramic view of the beautiful Ko'olau

mountains on the other side. The property is a beautifully-maintained

beach home with ample amenities, modern construction, and a clean

environment. You will be comfortable, clean, and peaceful.

This unit is an independent section of the home on this beautiful

property, with some shared amenities (such as washer/dryer, outdoor

shower, walkway to the water, etc.), but for the most part it is fully

independent. It has a large upstairs section with sleeping, kitchen,

casual, and patio areas, and a downstairs large room suitable for

additional sleeping and casual needs. If you have needs for more

guests, or wish to explore a larger and more high-end rental, our full

property can also be rented.

This property is in a residential neighborhood, with only a few

vacation rental prospects in the area (with even fewer on the beach!),

so if this kind of a getaway appeals to you, we encourage you to book

a reservation immediately. This is truly a one-of-a-kind experience,

where you can experience Hawaii as people who live here like to

experience it, and it is perfect for the "off the beaten path" vacation!

Perfect location for an off the tourist path vacation

  • 5 of 5
We were a family of 4 and found the guest house to be perfect for us. Loved waking up to the sunrises over the ocean every morning and going to sleep to the sounds of the surf. So nice to have all the beach chairs, boogie boards, snorkels and such already there. Easy drive to other tourist locations and always nice to come back to a quiet area each night to relax. This is definitely a good location for someone who wants to be out of the main tourist locations but right on the beach.

Great Trip!

My husband, my 2 year old son, and I had an awesome time staying at Laura’s house in September for 12 days. The property is right on a beautiful beach away from the crowd. There was some wind, but it never bothered us, as it was unusually hot for the time of the year and the breath felt good. The property has a lot of beach toys for adults (bookie boards, paddling boards, canoes) as well as kids (a huge bag of sand toys).
Laura and Dean stay at the front building and the beach cottage is located behind it, totally separated from theirs with a little courtyard in between. Everything is very tastefully decorated. The beach cottage has two levels each with an own bathroom and shower. The bigger room upstairs has a kitchen unit with a table to dine on, a balcony, and king size bed. The downstairs bedroom has a queen bed with a fold-out couch. Our two year old loved running around on the lawn and observing the bunny and the guinea pig, which are outside in the yard in a little open enclosure.
Waimanalo is a very rural, little town/village with not much going on. It has about 4 restaurants/cafes with decent food, which are located right at the highway. Our favorite spot was Sweet Home Waimanalo, which has tasty local food. Kailua is about a 10-15 minutes drive with two Safeways and a Whole Foods. The property is located conveniently to explore the island. The property is located conveniently to explore the island. We drove twice to the North Shore and twice to Waikiki and also visited Pearl Harbor.
Laura and Dean are lovely, quiet people who leave you alone unless you need something and want you to enjoy the awesome place they call home.

Paradise on Oahu

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four stayed at the beach house for five nights. Upon arrival, we ran the few steps to the most beautiful beach we had ever seen! The teal water was warm and the waves were perfect for our kids 13 and 11. We took out the paddle boards everyday and it was such a treat to have all the water toys at your finger tips. Laura is the best host! We felt like we were staying with family from the moment we met her! The house itself is very cute and well appointed! plenty of room for our family and guests. Two full bathrooms came in handy too after a day at the beach, but the outside shower was a delight. We ate outside on the spacious lanai and enjoyed the mountain views and all the lush landscape. It is a residential neighborhood and we always felt safe and at home. You are very close to Waikiki, Sea Life Park and Hanauma Bay. We chose to drive to the North shore for our snorkel trip and it was well worth the drive. We ended up at Shark's Cove and saw amazing sea life, then hit the yellow shrimp truck that I had seen on Food Network for lunch on the way home. We always ended the day with a long swim at "our" beach. Ono shrimp and Keneke's is within walking distance and delicious. Everyone needs a shaved ice break while in Hawaii. Make sure you drive to Kailua for Dave's ice cream, we went daily and sure miss it now! Cinnamon's for breakfast was great as well... I'm still dreaming about their guava chiffon pancakes! This was a vacation my family will never forget! We cannot wait to return to this paradise!

Beachfront Paradise

My husband, daughters 14 & 11 and I stayed here 10 nights. It's perfect for a family of 4. It's our third year coming to Hawaii as a family and we wanted to relax away from the "tourist hustle and bustle" in Waikiki.
Upon our arrival, I was pleased to find the home clean and ready for us. The photos are exactly what you get, steps from the beach.
Laumilo Street is quiet and there are very few people on the beach. Not at all like Waikiki, where you have to search for a place to put your towel! There are beach towels, beach chairs, sand toys, kayaks, stand up boards & boogie boards for your use. It's nice to be able to use these items and not have to worry about renting them.
Waimanalo Beach has the perfect boogie boarding waves for hours of fun!
It's wonderful to start each day with breakfast on the lanai. Having a kitchenette for quick meals & snacks is very convenient. Laura also has ice chests available so that you can bring lunch to the beach.
Having TV's and wi-fi available were really appreciated and convenient, for both kids and adults.

Ono Steak & Shrimp barbeque and 7-11 are close by for a quick slurpee, meal or Malasadas on the beach. McDonalds is just down the road to satisfy those cravings, as well. We did not try any other nearby places.
You will likely want a car, so that you can explore around the island.
Make sure and drive down the road 15 minutes to Kailua and stop at Island Snow for some delicious shave ice.
Our family had a wonderful vacation at Waimanalo Beach! I highly recommend this home, and hope to stay again! :)

Peaceful place in paradise!

This home is in an amazing and quiet location, on what I feel, is the best beach on Oahu. The house itself is perfect for a small family and is well-appointed and clean. There is a decent view of the ocean from the upstairs living room. The only addition I would make to the home would be more storage for clothing in the downstairs bedroom. My children loved visiting the bunny and guinea pig who have a pen outside in the yard, as well as the koi pond, also on the property. Laura lives on the property in the main house and she was available yet not intrusive.
The beach. I can't say enough about the beach right out back. Every time it came into view it took my breath away with the amazing color and view of the distant islands. The water was warm and the waves were playful, yet safe. No undertow or sudden drop-offs. We saw numerous turtles swimming fairly close to shore. Because it is a residential area, there aren't crowds like you will find at Lanakai and Kailua beaches (and I don't think those beaches are any better than the beach at the home, anyway). The kids (age 7 and 10) played for hours with the boogie boards and I used the SUP frequently. There are also kayaks available. We traveled to many places and beaches around the island, but the kids always wanted to get home quickly in order to swim at "our beach." Did I mention the color of the water? Yes, it's THAT blue.
There is a shop for groceries in Waimanalo and Kailua has many restaurants/shops and is a 10-15 minute drive away. If you want to attend a luau, the Chief's Luau is a mere 10 minutes down the road and quite good.
I would love to return some day and we were all quite sad when our holiday is over.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Our family had the most amazing time here! We wish we could give it more than 5 stars! We stayed here 5 nights in the beginning of June 2014. It was the perfect size place for our family of 5. When we arrived our oldest son, age 15, spotted the kayaks and threw on a lifejacket and headed for the horizon line. Another son, age 14, loved the boogie boards, and the youngest, a daughter age 10, loved playing in the waves and looking for turtles, easily spotted in the water. We attempted, without much luck, to master the stand up paddle boards, but none of us appear to possess a particularly well developed sense of balance! All of these fun beach toys, and more, are provided for your use when you stay here. Definitely a huge bonus! We spent a lot of time paddling around in the kayaks. The quiet, serene beach was almost always empty for as far down as we could see and the sand was clean and felt like walking on powdered sugar. A perfect place to take family photos!
The house is truly lovely. Very well decorated and the kitchen is stocked with plenty of pots and pans, coffee maker, glasses, plates, etc, everything you need. There is a small grill out on the balcony. It was nice to be able to make simple meals and not have to eat out all the time.
The owner, Laura, is very nice, and made us feel very welcome.
The island is not large, so it was easy to take the kids to see many of the sights. We would recommend snorkeling in Hanauma Bay, touring Pearl Harbor, hiking Diamond Head, shopping at the Aloha Market, The Bishop Museum, and definitely go to the Polynesian Cultural Center for the day and stay for the show, “Ha: Breath of Life.”
Our kids said that playing on the beach at the beach house was their favorite part of the trip!
Best vacation ever!
