Waimanalo Beach house description
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!

A little Bit of Heaven in Waimanalo
A little Bit of Heaven in Waimanalo
We couldn’t have found a more perfect vacation rental. As a former Hawaii resident, I was well aware of the charms of Waimanalo and it’s beautiful beach. This house is as sweet as it gets. It is a 2-level extension of the main house, with a bedroom / bath downstairs and the main living / bedroom space on the upper floor - giving you a treehouse feeling of looking out through palm fronds onto the gardens, and the ocean beyond. The property sits within a gated wall directly on the beach. The house is bright and cheery with windows wrapping all around for views and trade wind ventilation. We went to bed each night hearing the surf, and woke each morning to a swim in the ocean before coffee and papaya. Laura made the experience exceptional, giving us complete privacy and only made herself known when we needed our spatula replaced. There are boogie boards and kayaks and an outdoor shower at the edge of the lawn by the beach. We has a memorable kayaking adventure, paddling along coast! The drive into Honolulu is only a little over 30 minutes so it was easy to zip around daily. Coming “home” to Waimanalo was the best part. We plan to return on our next visit.

Best Beach Stay Ever!
Best Beach Stay Ever!
This house was beyond our expectations! You see the pictures but can't fully imagine the beach until you arrive. Soooo beautiful and you get to experience it first hand in your own back yard. Laura, the owner, welcomed us with a hug and made us feel completely welcome throughout our stay. She was awesome to work with and was easily reached by email or phone. She is a gracious hostess. The house is adorable and cheery with lots of windows to enjoy the ocean breeze and sounds of the ocean. The lanai has beautiful mountain views. Beach access is just a stroll across the beautiful yard. The property is pictured exactly as it is. It is clean, well maintained, and easy access to get to the rest of the island. We were provided with alot of extras including kayaks, boogie boards, a nicely equipped kitchen and BBQ grill. Do not hesitate to rent this vacation property, you will not be disappointed. Such a beautiful place and a wonderful landlord to work with.

This place is fabulous! With limited reviews and only a few photos, we were a little hesitant about what we would find when we arrived. The place definitely exceeded our expectations. This unit is detached from the owner, and is two floors with a large bedroom (queen size bed and futon)and full bathroom downstairs, and a large studio with king size bed, full bathroom, kitchen, and large covered balcony upstairs. From the upstairs you can see the ocean out one of the windows (overtop of the owners house – you can’t see the beach), and the other windows look out onto the owners well kept grassy/treed grounds. The balcony is above the driveway, but there is a view through the palm trees of the lush green mountains that surround the area. You simply have to walk out in front of the owners house to the beach area where there are kayaks, boogie boards and sand toys for use. There isn’t a lot of beach here as the waves crash quite close to the property, but there is plenty of beach to walk in both directions and the scenery is second to none with the mountains behind you, gorgeous aqua water, and islands not far offshore. We rented a car for the week and drove around the entire island, and this was still my favourite beach. It is very quiet, with only a few people out swimming or walking on most days. The neighbourhood immediately around the place is full of nice houses and is great for sleeping since all you can hear is the ocean. Once you cross the main road in Waimanalo Beach it is a bit run down. There are some eateries about a 5-10min walk away, but there seemed to be some sketchy locals hanging around most of them in the evenings – I wouldn’t feel overly safe walking around that area after dark, but that goes for most areas we visited in Oahu. The owner was friendly but un-intrusive; we didn’t even see her for the first few days. We were travelling with our toddler and she had a pack n play and baby gate set up for us when we arrived. I would definitely recommend this place for a quiet, relaxing getaway.

A slice of heaven
A slice of heaven
Guests: Greg & Dona, Minnesota, February, 2012 I lived in Hawaii for 3 years and have been back several times. I know every island in detail. I am so happy I rented here. I have always believed the view along Waimanalo/ Makapuu is one of the top 2 in the top in the state. To stay on the beach was so special. It was great to walk out the door and sit on the beach furniture. One day we sat and watched 2 turtles play 10 feet off shore- the whole 90 minutes no one ever walked by. You can walk in either direction almost endlessly on a worldclass beach. So- if someone is looking for a stress free escape- this is the best- as good as any spot on any island. Beach front property; quiet private neighborhood; a flat surf for great swimming; a view that is worldclass- this can't be beat. If someone is looking to enjoy all the historical attractions and activities of Oahu- this is also a perfect spot to use as a home base without having to endure Waikiki. The two levels with a full bath on each floor are perfect for two couples or families with children. I thoroughly enjoyed the lanai on the mountainside. To eat beakfast each morning on the lanai was an added treat. The guest rental house is isolated from the owner's property and I felt like I had my own beachfront property. Laura was a great host. The property was clean and well furnished. This is now my favorite spot to rent on Hawaii- I will be back again.
