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.
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.
This simply couldn't have been any better (well, maybe if they had a grill we could have used). The pictures don't do it justice at all. We drank coffee on our lana'i every morning with a gorgeous view of the Ko'olaus, and then walked barefoot to the beach - those sunrises! The suite is spacious and airy, the bed is comfy, the AC works great. The beach is simply the best I have ever visited - soft sand almost like peanut butter cookie dough, great boogieboarding for the kids. The only bad part was that we had to leave.
We rented two units here, so this review is a repeat of the Bellows Beach review. This unit is one of several that are part of a large house that has been converted into modern apartments. The rooms are large and comfortable with everything you could want, including boogie boards and beach towels. This particular unit is on the second floor, looking out on the lovely pool and gardens. The large balcony has a table and chairs and makes this unit feel particularly roomy. We thought we might cook in the room more often, but the neighborhood restaurants are so good that we walked over and ate there every day. SueEllen, the caretaker, and Jane the owner are easy to work with and eager to accomodate anything we might want. The two rooms in this unit are very spacious and would be perfect for a family with young kids. Everything is spotless and looks brand new. The beautiful white sand beach is an easy walk down the street, and provided us with hours of safe swimming and boogie boarding during our early December stay. My only caution is that there is a list of rules, mainly designed to protect the peace and privacy of the guests and residents in the neighborhood. This is not the place to stay if you're looking to party every night. We loved our stay here. Waimanolo is the best!
Overall this is a beautiful place to stay. It's about a blocks walk to the beach. The caretaker is amazing and she is a delight to talk to. The only thing I could mention is that the place is not very soundproof so you do here the different noises that are around the area. The facility is great and clean.
I would recommend this property to those interested in rest and relaxation and a well accommodated living space. The backyard is beautifully landscaped and the pool is tranquil. The thoughtful touches like classy soap in the bathroom, a new sponge and paper towels in the well equipped kitchen, and a very clean and tidy room makes for a very comfortable stay. Suellen is very knowledgeable about the area and can recommend the best spots to eat. Jane provided a well detailed list of instructions and expectations which is very helpful for first time visitors or first time visitors with a home rental type of property. It was our first time to the island and first time staying in a rental other than a hotel and Jane's responsiveness with the whole process was a confidence builder that this was a great choice for our family. What you see in the pictures for this listing is exactly what you can expect and it is equally as beautiful in person.
Was very clean, safe, liked that was on quieter side of Oahu, definitely need a car but that's ok, would highly recommend
My husband and I had the pleasure of renting out one of Jane's units again, and we were so impressed that everything has been kept up to date and as clean as ever. (We stayed exactly one year prior). Jane, the owner, definitely takes good care of her property, and wants guests to feel comfortable. Property appeared to have been recently painted on the outside. We even had new boogie boards and chairs to use at the beach! Jane also recently replaced the patio furniture by the pool. She is directly involved with the upkeep of the rental, so she keeps all her units well maintained. We plan on staying again at her property.
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.
