1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom Private Suite Sleeps 2-4
Enjoy a truly Hawaiian vacation away from the noisy, crowded city, in the quiet, tropical beach town of Waimanalo. The stunning Ko'oloa mountains are at your back door, the white sand and turquoise water of Waimanalo beach is just steps from your front door, and Kailua and Lanakai beaches are a short drive away. Just 15 minutes from Sea Life Park, Mokapu Beach, and Hanauma Bay, and you are centrally located for easy access to all the other scenic attractions Oahu has to offer. This suite has its own private entrance and parking. It has one bedroom with a new, comfortable Serta Perfect Sleeper King bed in the bedroom, and a comfortable memory foam queen size sofa bed in the living room, so the suite sleeps 2-4. It offers a well-equipped kitchenette with a refrigerator, 2-burner hot plate providing instant heat, microwave, toaster and coffee maker, as well as all the pots, pans, and utensils needed for cooking and eating. The bathroom has a large shower, vanity, bath and beach towels, as well as a hair dryer and full length mirror. There are 2 large flat screen TV's, one in the bedroom, and one in the living room. Whisper-quiet splitl AC keeps the entire suite cool, or if you prefer fresh ocean breezes, there are plenty of windows and a sliding glass door onto your own private lanai. Or relax on a deck chair or at a table under an umbrella around our swimming pool, or in the garden area. Experience the beautiful sunrise just 2 minutes from this suite on spectacular Waimanalo Beach--which boats miles of some of the whitest sand (no rocks) and most turquoise water (gentle waves) in the world. This beach is uncrowded and pristine--a truly relaxing and fun escape where you can just kick back on the beach under the sun or an umbrella, swim or boogie board in the ocean, or stroll with your feet in the water on the sand. Perfect for families, friends, or couples. The property is gated and secure, and there is parking either on the property or on the street front. We also provide a coin-operated washer and dryer in the laundry room, an outside shower, and boogie boards, beach chairs, umbrellas, and coolers for fun in the sun. The suite is clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated with all new furnishings, bedding and linens (100% high-thread cotton), and there is cool, clean ceramic tile on the floor. We also offer free WiFi and cable TV.
Eco-friendly, we use non toxic, environmentally friendly, fragrance free laundry soap and cleaning products.

Fabulous stay! Highly recommend!
First time Hawaii visitors. Cannot recommend this VRBO enough. The condo was perfect for our relaxing, laid back vacation. Let’s start with the condo.... it has everything you need (refrigerator, cooktop, kitchen stuff for 4, dish soap, garbage bags, paper towels, microwave, cooler, beach chairs and blankets, an extra blanket for bed, hairdryer, etc.). Outside you will find a lovely salt water pool, seating area and lounge chairs, more beach supplies (snorkel stuff, boards, etc.) as well as a laundry area (with laundry soap, $2 in quarters per load) and lots of bug spray and sunscreen (in case you forgot). The atmosphere around the condo during our stay was great. This is a 6 condo/home so you will see your neighbors in passing and at the pool but that made the trip even better. Everyone was so considerate and friendly. If you are worried about noise, don’t. We stayed in a downstairs unit and with the exception of a few pitter patters of feet we heard nothing. Check in was a breeze. (Remember to call SueEllen on your way to the condo...that info is buried in the very informative confirmation email you will receive). Honestly, the accommodations were fabulous and the condo is literally less than a 2 min walk to the most beautiful, clean and quiet beach I saw all week. But the hidden secret is SueEllen. She is friendly, welcoming and a wealth of information about the islands. She tipped us off to great shops, the farmer’s markets, hikes, and great places to eat. Make friends with SueEllen (shouldn’t be hard.... she is super welcoming and fun) and your trip will be all the better. We will definitely be back!
All you need for a great vacation!
Beautiful property. The location is ideal. There is a wonderful beach (immaculate sand) just down the road, a very short walk. Everything is provided: beach towels, toys, boogie boards, beach chairs, cooler, ice packs etc. Very clean and well cared for daily by the caretaker Suellen (who is also very helpful and friendly). The pool was a great added bonus. The house is split between various units. This one is a one bedroom with kitchenette and pull out bed. Both were comfortable. We loved our stay and would come back.
The property was impeccably clean, neat, and comfortable. It's location of but a short walk to a beautiful beach is wonderful. Last, but certainly not least, the property manager, Sue Ellen, is a most gracious hostess. Bruce.
Excellent property and location
The property was great. Very clean and great service / management. Close to the beach, nice quaint location. Good amenities. Having the pool on the property and the beach so close by was great. Only minor comment is that we were on the bottom suite with the main walkway past us, so privacy was a bit of an issue, but none of the other suites would have this concern. Also, being on the bottom, fairly loud on our last nights stay when a louder family moved in upstairs. Otherwise, it was great and I would recommend this place and stay here again.
Quiet, Comfortable, and Only Steps to a Breathtaking Beach
This property provided my family with a quiet, relaxing, and comfortable vacation -- exactly what the doctor ordered!
- The unit is clean, modern, and well-stocked with luxurious linens, large beach towels, plenty of cooking/eating equipment, and great beach accessories (chairs, boogie boards, snorkels, etc.). We particularly enjoyed using the electric kettle.
- The landscaping is lush and lovely, and really added to the feel of "tropical seclusion" that we wanted for our vacation.
- The property's location is perfect -- only a short stroll to the breathtaking Waimanalo Beach, very convenient to both Honolulu and Kailua, and located in a quiet neighborhood far-enough away from the tourist-laden Waikiki.
- Jane (property owner) and Suellen (property caretaker) are very friendly, professional, and readily available.
- For all the amenities, location, and size of the unit, the price is fantastic!
- The king-size bed, although fairly comfortable, was too bouncy and firm.
- The pull-out sofa bed does not provide adequate comfort for two adults, although it would probably suffice for two children.
- The concrete pool is very nice, but it isn't heated, which meant that the water was too cold for enjoyable swimming during most of our December visit.
- The pool hours are very restricted, and evening swims (e.g., after dinner) are not permitted. There's nothing quite like a swim under the stars, and without that ability, the pool is really only useful in between visits to the many beautiful Oahu beaches.
We enjoyed our stay tremendously -- who wouldn't enjoy vacationing on Oahu?! -- and would definitely consider renting this unit again, particularly if the pool hours were extended. Great unit, great location, and great price!
It was everything I expected perfect, clean, awesome pool, very short walk to beautiful quiet beach. LOVED our stay and would definitely stay here again.
Located in the quiet, laid back beach town of Waimanalo, this suite is a 2 minute stroll from the spectacular white sand, turquoise water of Waimanalo Beach, and a short drive from the Kailua and Lanikai. Relax on miles of picture book perfect, uncrowded tropical beach, or swim or boogie board in the family-friendly (gentle waves and no rocks) beautifully clear and clean ocean. A quick 10-15 minutes NE are beautiful Kailua and Lanikai Beach, and the shops, restaurants and cafes of Kailua town. To the South drive along the ocean towards for just 15 minutes to Mokapu Beach, Sea Life Park, and Hanauma Bay, which is famous for its snorkelling, or drive North to the beaches, surfing spots, and shopping of the North Shore. Honolulu with Waikiki, Pearl Harbor, Diamond Head, the zoo, Ala Moana shopping center, and Magic Island is 20-25 minutes away. Or head West to Ko'Olina Resort, and the beautiful beaches of the West side. Where ever you go, you can look forward to returning to your cool, quiet, restful Waimanalo home away from home.
