Wedding/Honeymoon in Paradise
I cannot say enough how wonderful our trip to Hawaii and staying at Laura’s cottage was. I cried when it was time to leave. 8 days was not long enough. Laura is amazing and kind.. the cottage location is right on the beach and the beach is so gorgeous! Very few people on the beach and we were able to walk right out to the beach and be married with the turquoise water in the background. Where the grass in the yard ends, the sand begins. We will be back! Love you Laura! Thank you for the hospitality and kindness!
Private beach on a very crowded island- Wonderful property!
This property was everything in the description and more! Everything we needed during our stay was provided. Many "water toys" were available for our use on the beach. The beach was wonderful. It was basically a private beach on an island full of people. It was the only place we could actually get away from the crowds. Laura was awesome! She stayed out of our way to give us privacy, but was always available and easy to find when we had questions. The check in / check out process was very easy. We were a family of four staying here and there was plenty of everything we needed and plenty of room to sleep. We did not use the kitchen much, but it appeared to have everything needed to cook meals. We loved having a place to go to get away from traffic and people. There was plenty of space that a hotel doesn't provide and several seating/ relaxing areas on the property that we enjoyed. And the private beach space is something that you just can't get at a resort. The only thing that wasn't perfect was the fact that it isn't air conditioned. We went at the end of July so it was probably as hot as it gets on Oahu. It was a little stuffy during the day but at night with opened windows the ocean breezes cooled the space nicely. It just took a little getting used to without air conditioning but we were not uncomfortable. We visited Honolulu and were VERY happy that we decided not to stay there. This was a great get-away from the hustle and bustle of the city and and easy drive to anywhere on the island. Highly recommend!
Fabulous Beyond Expectations - A Must Stay When Vacationing in Oahu!
This was our first-time using VRBO and we were a bit nervous about picking a place to stay for our family vacation of four (my wife and I and 2 teens) from just a website profile and photos. This was the best vacation stay my family has ever had. The place was super clean and modern. The location was right on Wamanalo Beach which was one of, if not the best, beaches in Oahu. Soft, fine white sand and clear blue waters surrounded by beautiful Hawaiian mountain landscapes. We woke up every morning and walked out of the backyard on to the beach with a cup of coffee and sat on the beach to take in the fantastic and life energizing sunrises. Our Host was wonderful as she provided us with helpful information and very gracious Hawaiian hospitality. The Host makes available the use of beach chairs, a beach umbrella, snorkel gear, kayaks, and surf or boogie boards which our teens enjoyed. When our teens needed a break, they merely walked back inside from the beach into their own private bedroom and bathroom equipped with a TV and full WiFi access. This allowed my wife and I to enjoy much desired beach-time to the fullest without stress or worry. This location in Waimanalo is ideally located and only minutes away between Hanauma Bay and Makapuu Point to the South and Lanikai and Kailua Beach Towns to the North and only 30 minutes away from Honolulu and 40 minutes away to the west side of the island. If you are a looking for an ideal place to relax and yet want the flexibility to easily reach other island destinations, then this is the place for you. In addition to the terrific island location, on-the-beach access, and superior living amenities, our Host was most gracious, caring, kind, and helpful. For us she was the island's crown jewel of hospitality. This was for us a fabulous experience beyond expectations. Our family looks forward to returning to this must stay location and into the welcoming arms of a wonderful Host for another fantastic vacation experience. Mahalo and Aloha!
What a delightful family! It’s just da’ bes’ to see guests happy, relaxed and enjoying the sun and surf. It was an absolute pleasure to have Taso and family visit Waimanalo.
Beautiful hidden beach
Awesome accommodations my wife was throughly pleased and wished she could stay longer. Laura is always present and helpful. I have stayed at many beach houses on Oahu, from North Shore to Waimānalo this one is bookmarked for a return stay
Matthew and his family were warm and wonderful,
Happy they chose my home for a get away,
We live on Oahu and just wanted a staycation at the beach! This property is AMAZING!! Perfect for a family with kids! We slept upstairs and the kids had the room with 2 beds and a bathroom downstairs. Steps to the beach!! Absolutely gorgeous! I would never stay in a hotel at Waikiki if this property was available. It’s absolute perfection. Laura and her family were very welcoming and just so nice!! We had the most wonderful time. Boogie boards, kayaks and surfboards available for use, an outdoor shower my daughter absolutely loved to rinse off all the sand before going in. Shampoo body wash and towels all provided. You can’t go wrong! There’s a couple yummy restaurants nearby we tried. If you are looking for a rental off the beaten path you won’t find a better value or place than this!! Thank you so much for an awesome staycation!! We can’t wair to come back!! ❤️❤️❤️
2nd Awesome Experience - Highly Recommend this Beach Rental
My family and I recently spent a week at this fantastic beach home for Spring Break. We loved our stay last year, and were impressed to see nice updates made to the property when we arrived. This home is light, airy, beautifully decorated, comfortable, and perfectly situated a few steps from the beach. New this year, we enjoyed grilling dinner on a nice big (clean) gas grill and eating outside in the grassy lawn outdoor seating area.
Too many things to list, but here are some highlights about this property:
The beach location. Large sandy strip, good size waves that are not to rough for kids, and sandy ocean floor. Rarely many people on the beach so it feels very private.
The outdoor shower!! I didn't take a single shower indoors. The shower is equipped with hot water / shampoo/ conditioner / body wash and it was heavenly to clean up with a view of the ocean.
Tons of water toys! We kayaked to the former "Robin Masters Estate" about 1.5 miles away and enjoyed catching waves on the boogie boards.
The "Coconut Hut" located on the edge of the lawn ocean side. A shady little nook to sit out and enjoy the views in a sheltered area.
My 8.5 year old daughter enjoyed looking at the beautiful koi in the fish pond each day.
Walking distance to food establishments. We got take out from Ono's Steaks and Shrimp 3 times on this trip.
Board games for indoor downtime.
Warm and welcoming owner.
We highly recommend you consider this property for your next trip. You won't be disappointed!
