Luxury Beach Rental Unit-Hawaii state tax ID W00652266

Bedrooms 2
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 4 nights


About the property

2Bedrooms, 2 Baths, sleeps 4 NO LAUNDRY SERVICE ON SITE

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

independent. THERE IS NO LAUNDRY SERVICE ON SITE (There is Waimanalo Washerette that is 4 min drive, it is a drop off laundry service that we use) 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!

Absolutely wonderful!!! A quiet little slice of paradise in paradise!. Beautiful beach!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for nine nights and it was absolutely wonderful! The beach is the most beautiful on Oahu and is just steps from your door! Fantastic sunrises! The property was amazing in a very quiet neighborhood. A short walk to several very local casual restaurants that were absolutely wonderful! Everyplace that you want to see on the island is easily drivable. It was always such a pleasure to return to the property after a day of sightseeing because it is so incredibly quiet and peaceful! Laura is wonderful and we really did not see her much at all during our stay. I would certainly stay here again... And again... And again!!! A thousand mahalos, Laura - for sharing your beautiful property with us! It is a vacation that we will always fondly remember!!!

Relaxing Hawaiian Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed at Laura’s beautiful beach house for our 20th wedding anniversary.

Waimanalo is a beautiful long stretch of white sandy beach. The beach house is few steps away from it. We had planned many activities but end up much of the time staying put and enjoying this beautiful area. We were very comfortable staying in her house.

She has boogey boards, kayaks, many water toys to enjoy. Her house is towards the east side. We woke up with sunrise and brought the coffee and sip in the beach.

There is few restaurants in walking distance. It had yummy garlic shrimp and steak.

It’s quiet and small country setting.

We love to come back to this beautiful beach house again!

Wonderful beach property

  • 5 of 5


-Right on the beach - a very, very lovely beach and view. Could not be beat.

-Ample supply of beach towels, kitchen utensils, etc.

-HOT water (showers) for family of 4 that never ran out!

-Hot outside shower

-Comfortable beds

-Quality shampoo, conditioner, and body soap provided (even for outside shower). My skin never felt so good!

-Nice host (Laura) who helped when needed -- our son got stung by a Portuguese Man o War, and she didn't mind us knocking on her door for help! Also, we were hungry for pizza and it was late and she found a place that delivered (Pizza Hut).

-Koi pond on property

-Canoes, body boards, life jackets available for use, etc. She no longer had the SUP, but said she would be getting another one soon. When we were there the ocean waves were too strong to use a stand-up paddle board, so it wasn't an issue.


-Not many restaurants close by (also have to watch as some close early or may not be open at all!). Laura is helpful for pointing in the right direction for this as well.

-Somewhat outdated, but probably similar to many other comparable properties

-No washer and dryer (laundry facilities in town), but she did have plenty of towels, so that wasn't an issue


-No air conditioning, but this wasn't an issue due to the trade winds constantly blowing & many, many fans available. I get hot easily, but this wasn't an issue due to the winds and fans.

Overall, was an AWESOME stay.

Totally worth it.

  • 4 of 5

The rental was great especially the upstairs when the windows are open and the tradewinds are blowing it's so nice and relaxing. You can hear the waves crashing which was soothing. The downstairs was too hot for me even with the fans on. The washer/dryer wasn't working so I had to take it to the laundromat twice (a little inconvenient when I'm trying to enjoy my vacation), next time an update would be nice just so future renters are aware. Your rental is at the front of the property when you come in from the driveway the owner's house is at the rear which is on the beach, you'll be walking through the "courtyard" to get to the beach which is not a biggie, there is an outdoor shower with hot/cold water to rinse off which is nice. We did get to meet the owner twice and was really nice. When we had issues I just called/texted her and the owner replied promptly. The beach is amazing which is in one of the nicest and quiet part of the island. Other than that I would recommend this rental to anyone and I hope it's available the next time I come. I will never get a hotel because it doesn't have everything a rental does and you can save money by cooking at home and not eating out every day. Aloha and enjoy.

Fantastic Beach Home

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 7.5 year old daughter, and I just stayed at this great home over Spring Break. It had everything we needed and more. It is perfect for couples or a small family. The outdoor shower with hot water and all the soaps/shampoo/conditioner was a personal favorite of mine - perfect for cleaning up after swimming in the ocean. The beach location can't be beat; wide sand strip and gentle surf but enough waves for fun boogie boarding using the many boards available (along with beach chairs and other fun water toys). Inside the house everything was super clean and modern. There is also a great koi pond in the front yard that my daughter really enjoyed. We met both the owner and the housekeeper and both were so very nice and helpful. This is a real gem and we hope to stay here again in the future!

Perfect location! So relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our beach front stay at Laura’s. The location is amazing! The suite was comfortable with lots of space. We loved the trade winds (albeit extra strong while we were there). The lanai our front was awesome for meals and morning coffee, protected from the winds. Laura literally has everything you need for the beach, toys, life jackets, boards, kayaks, chairs, lots of towels, bikes, the list goes on!

My only suggestion would be a full size fridge in the suite although the exercise of running up and down the stairs to the big fridge in the garage was probably not a bad thing after all those macadamias :).

I would absolutely recommend this suite and stay again in a heartbeat! Laura is an amazing host and super accommodating. It felt just like home. We stayed a few nights in Waikiki after we left Laura’s and missed our little yellow beach house!
