Both bedrooms face towards the ocean and receive the wonderful, gentle tradewinds that make falling to sleep the greatest of pleasures!

In 2001 National Geographic named it one of the most beautiful beaches in the world!

Within a five minute drive you can explore the famous underwater snorkeling park of Hanauma Bay, check out the shows at Sea Life Park, or go horseback riding along scenic mountain trails. It's a great beach to learn how to boogie board.

Guestbook comments from the owner


Your Ocean~Song Beach House has given us a fantastic experience in Hawaii that would not have been so exciting had we not been here at your place.

We enjoyed being able to casually rise, breakfast, and plan our days.

We enjoyed being able to walk to the beach and feel the ocean come upon us.

We also enjoyed several events in this area. The Sea Life Park adventure was fantastic and the kids joined a group for hands on experience with the dolphins.

The atmosphere created by your collection of seaside decorating is quite pleasant and refreshing.

We all---Kris, Kody, Vi, Kurt and Carolyn---appreciated your spirited conversations and suggestions.

Aloha & Mahalo from all!

Stunning home next to my favorite beach in Waimanalo!

  • 5 of 5

This was my third stay in Waimanalo and I found this wonderful "Ocean Song" home for rent. Skye takes great pride in her property and it is decorated with attention to every detail. It is sparkling clean and very well maintained just as described with a master bedroom and second bedroom and bathroom. My two siblings and I were very comfortable and relaxed in this roomy home. The patio was delightful and breezy. The garden area off the patio is lovely with tropical plants, cute little geckos and a fountain. I spent my mornings out there waking up to the sounds of the ocean waves crashing on the beach and the palms flowing in the breeze. The home is located on a quiet street with direct access to the beach just a moment's walk away. Skye has comfy beach chairs, mats, towels, cooler and boogie boards handy. Waimanalo is located on the east side of the island of Oahu away from the hustle and bustle of tourists and party atmosphere of Honolulu and Waikiki. This area is maybe 35 minutes from Waikiki, less than that to Hanauma Bay, mere minutes to Kailua/Kaneohe and an hour from the North Shore. The distances are short in miles, but traffic is a challenge so add time to get where you need to go. There is really good food within walking distance of this lovely rental to include: fresh poke, Mexican (very good but a bit pricey), Keneke's for down home Hawaiian fare at a good value and the homey shrimp shack, yum! We found the delightful Siagon Noodle House just 5 miles north on Keolu Dr, Kailua. Oh...and we also found scrumptious malasadas at a little bakery near the noodle house; drive around behind the Chinese restaurant to find it. And for those of you who need your's right there too. The Diamond Head Luau at the Waikiki Aquarium was worth it. So much food and a wonderful show. Aloha Trikke tours was great fun. And we had a blast on the North Shore Shark Cage Adventure. Just do it! I highly recommend Sky's Ocean Song home for your family and we would rent this home again. You can pack light because she has a full-size washer and dryer, but be sure to bring quarters for the dryer. Aloha!

Quite neighborhoodd with great access to the beach

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was wonderful. Skye was easy to work with from the beginning and her communication was prompt. She was very flexible with our schedule. She met us at check-in and gave some great tips on the area to make our stay even better.

The house was perfect for our family of 5 with plenty of space to spread out. The very short walk to the beach gave us quick access to stunning sunrises and some great beach memories (and a nasty sunburn)!

A quite neighborhood that made for a very relaxing Hawaii vacation that I would absolutely repeat!

Well maintained and exactly as promised, with a few extras!!

  • 5 of 5

If you want to stay in a charming, historic house in Waimanalo, this will be the place for you. First let me say that Skye, our owner, was a breeze to work with. From the inquiry right down to the VRBO booking process, it's almost too easy and puts you in the vacation state of mind. With two beautifully outfitted bedrooms, a lovely living room, charming wood floors and quaint kitchen cabinets, you will really feel you've landed in a spacious home set apart from everyone else...even though there are other rental properties and the owner lives on site. Never fear, you will only see the owner and other renters at what you would consider appropriate times, coming and going. Our rental apartment had a beautiful outside, covered sitting area and separate secret garden. The bedrooms had individual a/c units that can be turned on immediately before you need them; they cool down that fast! The common areas are not under air, but the breeze from the ocean pours through for that authentic Hawaiian experience. The property is close to many major site-seeing areas. We hiked trails, visited the Pearl Harbor museum, and of course snorkeled the famous Hanauma Bay. As for those extras I mentioned....the apartment had plenty of towels, even beach towels to use. There were spices and condiments for our use, even shampoos and shower items. The kitchen reminds you of an earlier era, but is outfitted with all the modern conveniences, including coffee maker and microwave. The fridge provided plenty of ice and kept things cool. Skye had beach chairs, beach umbrella and coolers for us to use for the "exhausting" 50 steps to the beach access. The beach is among the most beautiful and you will be able to see why when you get there. It seems like paradise. While we were there, the locals seem to clean up the beach each day and we even got into the spirit when we found anything left behind that wasn't supposed to be there. While we walked, we saw beach weddings, families being photographed and the local Coast Guard station practicing water rescues in the distance. You have to get up to see the sunrise each morning on the beach with your coffee. If we ever get back to Oahu, we will definitely once again forego the hustle and bustle and stay at Ocean-Song Beach house. Thank you Skye for your caring and for checking on us after our stay! Mahalo and Aloha!

Everything was as expected EXCEPT the beauty of that beach one block away. The beauty just took my breath away. Skye was awesome and was there if we needed her. But we didn't because all was great.

Relaxing stay at the Cottage by the Sea

  • 5 of 5

Skye met us upon our arrival and offered suggestions for activity close to the house and on the island. We took a couple of day trips and usually made it back for cocktails on the back porch which always had a nice breeze. The short walk to the ocean where we enjoyed a walk along the beach, used their chairs to read / relax and the bogie boards for playing on the waves.

We got up early one day and saw a great sunrise.

The house was very comfortable and "Cottage by the Sea" is an apt was well outfitted.

We enjoyed our stay!
