Waimanalo Beach house description

Unmatched Views, Unmatched Location. Unique, Peaceful Oceanfront home lovingly built in Southeast Asian Style.
Welcome to Waimanalo, a wonderful small town on the Windward coast on the island of O'ahu, 30 minutes from Waikiki. We still have farms here, country stores, and pristine, empty beaches.

Our unique Southeast Asian style, BEACHFRONT home is perched on 15 foot poles with an expansive deck perfect to relax, take in fresh Hawaii air, and enjoy the most amazing views Oahu has to offer of both mountains and ocean.
Just 20 steps to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, with small offshore islands and views of the mountain cliffs, paragliders and lighthouse. Its soft, sandy beach is perfect for walking, swimming, kayaking, paddling, and bodysurfing. Lie in the sun or find a bit of shade to sleep the day away.
When you're not at the beach it's the perfect home for writing your novel, taking care of your internet business, or just relaxing. The home has an open floor plan built to take advantage of the beautiful turquoise ocean and Koolau mountain views from all rooms in the house.
Here, you can truly be away from it all.

3 Bedrooms insure privacy for all, a fully stocked kitchen, washer and dryer and 2 full baths make it comfortable and convenient for the whole family. The Master Bedroom has access to the deck and hammock and is equipped with large, flat screen TV. The 2 smaller bedrooms can open up completely to main room, and can accommodate up to 2 people in each room.

Everything you need is within walking distance: small markets, cafes, plate lunch, or shave-ice.
Anything else you may want is 15 minutes away in the quaint beach town of Kailua, or the larger town of Hawaii Kai,
with theaters, restaurants, and shopping.

              Car: Recommended

              Our home is located in a quiet residential village-neighborhood in historic Waimanalo. It is small town living on the Eastern or Windward shore of O'ahu, set between the larger suburban beach town of Kailua and larger urban area of Hawaii Kai. Waimanalo's neighborhoods are filled with local folks that still fish, farm, and practice Hawaiian traditions. Fronting our neighborhood are small 'Mom and Pop' stores and resturants like Bobby's, Keoki's Steak and Shrimp Shack, Mel's Market, Sweet Home Waimanalo Bar-B-Que, and Waimanalo Beach Cafe. Further down the road in 'Waimanalo Town', you'll find Shima's small Super Market, Dave's homemade ice cream, and East Oahu clothing company. We even have a few fast food joints and a Farmer's Market every Thursday morning at Waimanalo Beach park.

              Waimanalo is known for it's farm and horse country in the 'back roads', and you can catch a Polo match every Sunday during Polo season, or book a horsebackriding lesson with a local ranch.

              We have spectacular hikes from the Makapuu Light house with views from Kaneohe to Diamond Head, down to the Dragon's Nostrils blow holes and tidal pools, Kamehame Ridge, or you can explore the ancient Fish Ponds in front of Shriner's. Maunawili Falls and Likelike Falls are just a few minutes drive, as well as the Old Pali Road. Famous Makapuu Beach is also minutes away and right across from Sea Life Park where kids can feed turtles and see Hawaiian Monk Seals up close.


              Manager info

              About: The manager, Page Chang, pictured above with husband, Geoff, is a neighborhood resident and has extensive knowledge of the area and Hawaiian culture. A working artist, she also has an Art Studio in China Town, Honolulu, and is happy to open her doors to visitors. This house is owned by retired professors who live in NY and Waimanalo. They built this beachfront house over 40 years ago, and live here 5 months out of the year.

              Why Waimanalo Beach:
              There is a very small amount of beachfront property available in Hawaii. 40 years ago we had the opportunity and we took it! Now, this neighborhood is highly sought after by realtors, and is very difficult to buy into. We are very lucky!

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Spectacular Beach. Fantastic Location. Quiet, rural area yet only 15 minute drive to Kailua or along beautiful Kaiwi Coast to Hawaii Kai towns for restaurants, shops, movies, mall. Downtown Honolulu only 30 minute drive or go north along the beautiful Windward Coast to the North Shore. The Beach House sits on a large residential fenced property with gate and a residential cottage. A giant Kamani Tree takes center stage and palm trees and native plants surround the property. This neighborhood has always been a secret little jewel tucked behind ironwood trees that line the beach, with many homes passed down from one generation to the next.
