Continue on 7 more minutes to Makapu'u beach, Makapu'u lighthouse hike (where you can whale watch in the winter) and/or Sea Life Park. A quick 12-15 minute drive lands you at world famous Lanikai/Kailua Beach, where you can stroll, sunbath or even rent kayaks to explore the nearby Mokulua Islands.

The sweeping Ko'olau mountains grace Waimanalo with a wide variety of hiking trails, just steps away from the rental unit. Bring your road bike and explore the back country roads of Waimanalo on two wheels!

With Kailua being just a short drive from Waimanalo, guests can enjoy the conveniences of restaurants, bars, shopping, spa treatments and sports rentals while having the advantage of returning to a relaxed, private, rural setting.
