Best Beach on Oahu!
"Kathy's condo was perfect! This condo was renovated with tasteful appointments, a beautiful kitchen, very comfortable bed, a dishwasher, and a washer/dryer. The place where you will spend all your time will be the spacious lanai. The view is spectacular! Sunsets, moonsets, and watching the light change of the ocean during sunrise will fill the soul. The beach below is one of the best on the island! On a crowded weekend day there might be ten umbrellas dotting the sand. Locals and visitors share the waves. The water is absolutely beautiful. Make sure to bring your snorkeling equipment (or use one of the sets left behind by past guests) because you are going to love swimming wight he numerous turtles. This is the place to stay if you want to get away from the tourist crush and experience a locals only Oahu. Waianae now has a Starbucks, but I recommend buying Kona coffee for your relaxing mornings on the lanai. This is also a Jamba Juice for pre-hike fueling. You have to drive to Ko Olina for the nicer restaurants, shops, and conveniences, but the short drive is well worth being away from the crowds. If you stop for supplies on your way in, you would not need to leave the property to fully enjoy your stay at this beautiful condo.
A note about Kathy: I stayed for a week and then left to continue my vacation in Kauai. As soon as I boarded the plane, I realized I left all my medications in the side table at the condo. I suffer from a painful medical condition and the rest of my vacation could have been ruined. Kathy answered her phone even though she was away on the Big Island, and was gracious and understanding. She had the medications overnighted to my condo in Kauai. She really went above and beyond. I look forward to my next stay!"

"We had 12 people all together including 2 kids, 2 teenagers and one "21" yr old (birthday occurred during the trip) as well as a 60 yr old (also had birthday there), 63 yr. old (myself, the oldest) and others in between. Everyone had a great time. Waianea has kind of a bad reputation but we felt very safe and the beaches were beautiful. We had 3 vehicles so everyone could do what they wanted. Us "older" folks enjoyed just hanging out at the pool although we did snorkel at Shark's Cove and took a great snorkel, dolphin watching catamaran trip right out of Waianae harbor which was very convenient. We also did the Pearl Harbor tour- Home of the Brave which was long but very interesting. The family with the kids did all kinds of adventures, jungle tour, swim with dolphins, catamaran ride and loved it all. The 21 yr. old did a zipline which she loved.
No complaints about the house. We knew there was no air conditioning on the lower floor and it was very hot but we managed. We cooked in most nights and had no issues.
21 yr old wanted to go into Waikiki for her birthday so we braved the traffic and had a lovely time at Rum Fire lounge in the Sheraton. Try and avoid going into Honolulu after 3 pm."

"My husband and I stayed in this wonderful condo unit for over a month. Lucky us! Pam was a lovely person to deal with; kind, generous and friendly. The condo was outfitted extremely well with quality items and beautiful things. I would say it is the best VRBO we have ever stayed in. The highlight was the the amazing view from the lanai. We spent hours out there. We watched the absolutely gorgeous sunsets almost every night and must have taken 300 photos. We had breakfast out there every morning. From the lanai we also saw dolphins, large sea turtles and humpback whales. The beach in front is a hidden gem and is never, ever crowded.We have stayed on the Waianae Coast several times over the last 38 years and love the area because it is on the leeward side which means sunny and dry. We often drove a short distance to Pokai Beach where the water is very calm for swimming. There is an interesting heiau there to explore, too. Yokohama Beach at the end of the road is wild and beautiful and the hike to see the albatross reserve at Kaena Point is well worth it. We loved the Sat. morning market behind Long's Drugstore where fresh organic veggies among other things could be purchased. We highly recommend Kahumana Rest.on an organic farm on Lualualei Homestead Rd. We can't say enough about the wonderful time we had there. Mahalo, Pam!!"
