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.

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.

Awesome Stay in Waimanalo

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying here. Suellen who manages the property onsite was awesome and very friendly. She was able to recommend places to eat, shop for souvenirs and groceries. The only issue we had the entire stay was one day the WIFI would not work and she jumped right on it and had it fixed in less than 24 hours and gave us access to her personal wifi during the interim. If you are considering a stay in this area, you will not be disappointed. The kitchen was nicely stocked and the whole unit was very clean.

Convenient, Clean, Friendly

  • 4 of 5

Great place to stay. 1/2 block from Waimanalo beach. Beach chairs, boogie boards, and umbrella come with the unit and we used them every day. Good location. Kitchenette worked for small meals. Would definitely stay again.

Amazing Location

  • 3 of 5

The location and accommodations were great. The kids loved the pool and the easy access to the beach is unmatched.

The downside for us was feeling a bit like we were under a microscope. I read and respected the rules, including the one about 'large groups.' However, given the situation we were in (see below), I was a bit taken aback ...... we met some family members at the beach. We were all wiped out by a wave while sun bathing and covered in sand. We offered to let them use the outdoor shower at the condo to wash the sand off before getting in the car to drive back. Within literally 2 minutes I was admonished by the caretaker, questioned how long they would be there, and treated like petulant school girl. It was off putting and really soured the rental for me- and this was day one.

I was concerned to the point that I feared any perceived violation of the rules, such as having our niece who lives on the island come hang out with us would result in us being kicked out (the rules state this is an option).

Given this experience, we would not return to this unit- huge bummer because it is a lovely rental and location.

Owner's Response: As the owner, I was surprised to hear that Shannon felt that she was under a microscope, as that is neither our intention or our practice. Our goal is simple, we want all our guests to be comfortable and happy. Our rules are to help achieve this, and ensure that guests are considerate of each other and the property, and everyone has a great experience. It doesn't really work well when one guest decides to bring 11 extra people to the property who all want to shower, use the tables and chairs around the pool, and the pool itself, because then the other guests who are trying to use these amenities either can't, or are significantly impacted. That's what happened in this case. We obviously needed to know how long Shannon planned to have 11 extra people visiting for, because it was causing a problem for our other guests. Our guests appreciate having a caretaker on the property, because, as in this situation, if an issue arises it can be taken care of so they can continue doing what they came for, which is enjoying their vacation. If a guest wants to have a couple of family members or friends visit, that's fine. We just ask that they let us know ahead of time.

Relaxing clean and convenient

  • 5 of 5

This was a great value in Waimanalo. We were 500 steps to beach access and another 200 steps to the water’s edge. The pool was so amazing and we used it everyday. The unit was spacious and well equipped, and the host Sue Ellen was very attentive and kind. If we come back to Oahu we will definitely stay here again!!!

Fabulous place and location!

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful 5 day stay here. We were given a warm welcome and given lots of useful information about the area and the island in general. The place was super clean, quiet, and well managed. Lots of extras for guests like boggie boards, beach chairs, beach towels, and coffee for the coffee maker. We enjoyed meeting several of the other guests durng our stay and the nearby beach is only a short walk away, beautiful, and great for swimming or long walks. Cant say enough about how clean and comfortable this place was except that if your dates are already booked, it is because we went back to stay again. This place is simply short term rental done right.

Clean, cute & super close to a beautiful beach

  • 4 of 5

We spent a wonderful 9 nights here. The place was clean and perfect for what we needed. The kids loved having a pool in the yard, and the beach right down the road is amazing. We spent many hours there.

The only downside to the place is a small kitchen. We knew that coming, but with eating out being so expensive for a family we tried to do some cooking on our own. The kitchen has basic items. The knives and peeler were VERY dull & the coffee pot was mini.

Overall a super nice place to get away from the crazy Honolulu traffic. I would recommend getting some groceries at the Costco in Hawaii Kai &/or the Target down the road. They had the best prices.

The place also had Tommie Bahama beach chairs, an umbrella & boogie boards. We used them daily! We greatly enjoyed our trip and would love to come back some day.

Owner's Response: We appreciate helpful feedback, and have replaced the smaller coffee pot with a larger one, as well as the knives, etc. When our guests arrive we always let them know, if you have any issue or problem, let us know right away and we will be happy to take care of it right then, or as soon as possible. You don't have to wait until after you leave to let us know, because then it's too late to help you, although of course we can use your suggestions for the benefit of the next guests.

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.
