About the property

2 BR, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 2-5

Ocean~Song Beach House is situated in a quiet, country style residential setting. It is just a two minute walk from one of the most spectacular beaches in Hawaii!

This beach house is well decorated and totally tropical, a very clean and comfortable home for your island getaway.

It features two bedrooms with air conditioning, two full baths, and a spacious living room which opens directly to a large kitchenette. Sliding glass doors open from the living room to a covered porch, which looks out onto a small but very lush and private tropical garden, complete with the soothing sounds of a tranquil water feature to help you while away the afternoon...

Waimanalo is a truly special place, ideal for those travelers who want to get off the beaten path and who love the beach. It's a great place for surfers and boogie boarders, beach bums and nature lovers. It's a place where you can still feel the spirit of 'Old Hawaii.'

Amenities: Two full bathrooms, one with a bathtub/shower and the other with an extra large shower. The master bedroom has a gorgeous all teak wood sleigh bed, California King Size. The mattress is firm, with a super comfortable temperpedic topper. For those of you who dream of falling asleep to the sound of the ocean waves, our delicious trade winds usually keep the bedroom very comfortable, so you can fall asleep with the windows open. The room is also equipped with ac for the occasional extra hot summer night.

The second bedroom has an extremely comfortable plush queen mattress, and is also equipped with air conditioning.

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

ABOUT THE NEIGHBORHOOD: WAIMANALO: Waimanalo Beach is spectacular~~~there are five miles of white sand and turquoise sea with picturesque islands floating off the coastline. Giant sea turtles swim in our waters, whales travel through on their winter migration, and thousands of birds sing their tropical melodies, filling the neighborhood with the most beautiful music. 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.

It's a perfect beach for romantic walks at sunrise.

This community is nestled at the foot of some of the most spectacular mountain ranges of the Islands, and during the winter rains they are teeming with cascading waterfalls that will take your breath away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Skye,

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 Starbucks...it'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!

Ocean~Song is a great place to be to get to know Oahu!

  • 5 of 5

We like to get and experience the places we travel, and preferably be in a low key uncrowded area. Waimanalo is perfect for that on Oahu. Skye had beach chairs and towels and boogie boards and coolers, so we sampled 8 different beaches. Ono’s around the corner is so good for fish and steak, that it was difficult to want to try other restaurants, but we did. The only uncontrolled aspect was the weather, but nobody can control that. Fortunately there are lots of things to do, rain or shine.

Perfect getaway in a quiet town

  • 5 of 5

This home was a perfect escape from the hustle and bustle - Waimanalo is a quiet town. Skye shares her large home in 2-3 smaller parcels - ours was a comfortable, 2Br/2Ba with a living room, large kitchen, and porch. Skye is a friendly and helpful host. The house gate is 50 yards from the public beach access. Lovely beach - not crowded at all. Great local restaurant a short walk away. Still close to lots of Oahu activities and in comfortable striking distance of downtown Honolulu. We found it wonderfully relaxing!

Very close to beach but not worth the price

  • 3 of 5

This house is close to the beach but in a noisy neighborhood. Outside the master windows at the head of the bed you can hear the neighbors when you try to sleep. The linens are basic and the kitchen is limited if you want to cook and there isn’t a dishwasher. The gas grill is on its last leg. We actually had to go buy a lighter to start it. It would be totally fine if it was less expensive, but for the price we expected it to be nicer. Skye welcomed us and was very friendly.
