About the property

1 bedroom private suite sleeps 2-4, pool, AC, 2 mins to beach, 15 mins to Kailua

Enjoy a truly Hawaiian vacation away from the noisy, crowded city, in the quiet, tropical beach town of Waimanalo. The stunning Ko'olau 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, Makapu'u Beach, and Hanauma Bay, and you are centrally located for easy access to all the other scenic attractions Oahu has to offer. This 1-bedroom suite has its own private entrance and parking. It has a, 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 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 split AC in the bedroom and the living room 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, large deck/lanai, where you can enjoy views of the beautiful Ko'olau mountains. 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 (voted the #1 beach in America in 2015)--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.

What makes this house unique

An extremely peaceful, quiet location and property with everything you need right there. Some guests say they can truly relax here for the first time on any vacation, as they don't need to go anywhere--the pool is right there, the beautiful beach is just a couple of minutes walk, and the suite itself is cool, clean, and comfortable. Yet, everything you may want to do is not far away, so you are centrally located. To find such nice accommodation, in such a peaceful, quiet location, yet so near to everything, is unique.

We had a great time!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay. The property was clean, spacious. Slept our family of four with two teenagers, no problem. Kitchen amenities, wi-fi, a.c., etc all working well. Most importantly, the beach was fantastic, uncrowded and a very short walk away. We spent the better part of our week boogie-boarding, swimming, lounging. Short drive to Hunama bay for snorkeling. Sue Ellen was on site, helped with anything that came up. We want to go back.

Great location and great pool

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable place on the second floor with a large balcony to enjoy amazing views and roosters in the morning. Nice sitting area and kitchenette. Only down side is no grill...I would have loved that but I didn't see tons of places with grills when we were looking so could be a propane expense thing, an insurance thing or who know. Jane and SueEllen were great and we enjoyed the chairs and boogie boards on the beach within walking distance. There are others at the place so you aren't totally secluded, if that doesn't matter its a winner! You wont find a nicer place or a nicer pool for the price. Waimanalo is a good location with some good food around or close by in Kailua. I had no idea how big the island is even though its a smaller island...many things are 45 minutes to 90 minutes away depending on the direction and traffic so make sure you research the island.

Very comfortable and well cared for property

  • 5 of 5

Suellen takes such wonderful care of the property and its guests. Our unit was clean, comfortable, quiet, and had everything we needed. We liked being in the quieter Waimanalo than nearby Kailua and especially Waikiki. The beach was quite close and very, very nice.

Quiet location, nice rooms

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here in January and had a great time. We enjoyed being on the windward side of the island. This place is a very short drive to Lanikai beach and Kialua where there are restaurants, grocery stores, etc. The rooms were spacious and very clean. Had everything we needed. The pool was a bit cold (it was January), but our daughter still enjoyed it.

Fantastisch Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very clean and equipped with everything you need.

The beautiful beach is only a 3 min. Walk away. We had our own "Tommy Bahama" beach chairs, umbrellas and buggy boards.

Suellen is great and a fantastic host. Thank you

Truly Paradise

  • 5 of 5

I’m so happy I found this gem. It was my husbands first time to the island and I debated whether to say in touristy Waikiki or peaceful and less populated Waimanalo. I definitely made the right choice. The description and pictures of the property are accurate but the proximity to and beauty of the beach were understated. Oh my goodness!! Be sure to wake early and take in coffee and sunrise at the beach.

We rented a car and conveniently had access to the island but there are local restaurants, a convenience store and McDonalds all within walking distance.

Two thumbs up on the swimming pool!!

Jane was quick to respond to emails and Suellen was available on the property as needed. If you are reading this because you’re unsure if this property is the one... IT IS!! It will not disappoint you. BOOK NOW!

Mahalo Jane and Suellen.

Waimanalo Beach, white sand, turquoise water
Car: recommended

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 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 away are beautiful Kailua and Lanikai Beach, and the shops, restaurants and cafes of Kailua town. Drive along the ocean for just 15 minutes to Makapu'u Beach, Sea Life Park, and Hanauma Bay, which is famous for its snorkeling, or drive 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 25-30 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.
