2 Weeks in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Our group (3 adults, one two year old) spent an amazing two weeks at Waimanalo Beach House.

We arrived on Valentines day, so unfortunately the owners were out to a nice dinner and we were unable to meet them in person.

The house was fantastic. Looks exactly like the pictures. All the amenities you would find at home. Lots of beach bags/cooler bags, beach toys, chairs, towels, etc. Fully stocked kitchen. We did all our own cooking for the two weeks, so this was essential. We were provided a pack and play crib and high chair for our daughter, and tons of toys to keep her occupied. She especially loved the rocking horse! I only wish the coffee cups were larger ;)

While not directly on the beach, the house is 3 houses from the public beach access - a VERY short walk to the most beautiful beach I've ever been on. Great surf for body boarding!

My only complaint about the beach was that due to it being on the Windward side, and us travelling in the Winter, some days the Tradewinds were VERY strong. But being an island of many beaches, we just took the opportunity on those days to visit other beaches!

The location of the house on the island was fantastic. Far enough away from everything to feel nice and private, yet close enough to get anywhere with a short drive. 15 mins to Hawaii Kai groceries and Costco, 15 mins to Kaulia shopping/groceries, 30 mins to Waikiki, about 60 mins to North Shore.

A car is essential though when staying here. There isn't much other than small stores/local small grocery store/gas stations within walking distance.

We had an amazing time. Highly recommend the following: Hanauma Bay snorkelling, Waikiki beaches, shopping and surfing, Dole Plantation was touristy but fun, North Shore shrimp trucks (tasty), Diamond Head and Makapu'u hiking (we did Makapu'u every other day), and so much more.

I only wish the flight was shorter so we could come back every year!!!

Good place for the right people

  • 4 of 5

Pamela is an excellent host who is very thorough with information on the neighborhood, beach, activities, and house. She was super welcoming, accessible and responsive.

The location was perfect for us - just steps from the best beach on the island.

The house layout worked for us - 4 adults, teen, and pre-teen. There is a full kitchen with everything you need for cooking meals.

The house needs some repairs/updating. For example, roof leaked and sliding door doesn’t close (although on backside with a jungle so would be hard to enter). Pamela is aware of the issues and had plans to fix the roof.

The house comes with beach chairs, boogie boards, snorkel gear, cooler, and towels!

The area is very lush and the bird sounds are like clock work in the morning and evening.

Pleasant Stay in Waimanolo

  • 4 of 5

Our family (four adults and one child) spent a week at Pamela's house over Thanksgiving. Pamela is a lovely person to work with and is very helpful. The house is attached to the main house and you enter through a carport at the end of the driveway. The best part of the house is its location in Waimanolo, just a half a block from a wonderful beach that stretches on for miles! Pamela provides beach chairs, beach toys, boogie boards, snorkel gear and a beach cart to transport everything to the beach. The house is comfortable with great beds and LOTS of towels. Everything was provided, including plastic wrap and aluminum foil! A washer and dryer came in handy as well as a clothesline outside in the carport entry for hanging towels used at the beach. The house was pretty clean, but it is older, a little worn and could use some updating, but that didn't bother us. I missed having a private yard to sit in (the back yard is all trees and bushes), but there is a table and chairs outside in the carport entryway. It was great to stay in a semi-rural neighborhood instead of a hotel high-rise. There were chickens, cats, birds in the neighborhood and we enjoyed watching them.

We joked about the "feathered alarm clock", a large flock of birds that roost in the backyard trees and synchronize their chattering at 6 a.m. sharp every morning! We wanted to get up early every morning, and their consistency didn't waver! Along with the two bedrooms, there were two twin beds in the living room. We didn't need to use them, but there is the potential for 7 people to sleep in beds as well as a Pack and Play. Big walk-in shower in the laundry room/bathroom. Not many bugs in November and Pamela supplies bug control supplies as well. There were mosquitoes, but we used repellent on ourselves to take care of that. All in all it was a pleasant stay.

Beautiful beach; secluded! Home; not what we expected!

  • 2 of 5

We own our own VRBO so I am very honest with this review.

GOOD POINTS: Close to beach; 40 min. to airport, lots of windows, towels and bedding were of good quality. Internet and TV great, AC and fans in both bedrooms. Pamela mentioned that it was a beach home and not fancy. Told her we are perfectly fine with this as the rate was good and as long as it was clean and beds comfy we were good. Home was cluttered with personal items everywhere. Bathroom cupboards were so full we used a small shelf space for our items. Hall closet jammed with clutter; bedroom closets full of bags; old pillows and blankets. Shelves in living area were cluttered with dirty ornaments and all cupboards jammed full. MASSAGE CHAIR shown in picture does not work. Hall closet was full of personal items as well. Snorkel and beach toys cooler and wagon were over turned and full of bugs and dirt. Patio area cluttered with dirty carpets and throw pillows. We moved some items around on patio area and picked up pillows to put in storage bin (out of weather and insects) we were shocked to see bin full of moldy; insect infested newspapers (they have garbage and recycle pick up every week?) Laundry area and 2nd bathroom was falling apart; shower was in bad repair; we fixed toilet in this area. All laundry soap containers and bounce sheets were covered in gecko droppings. Pantry had old food that was not sealed up and full of small ants. Bedroom fans and dining room fans were covered in dust (thick layer; not cleaned for a very long time) Living room one did not work. We made our best with this home; cleaned light fixtures ourselves; only used fridge and freezer for food (not cupboards) continually put out ant poison and traps for other bugs around patio area. Cleaned and organized her living room area and patio area and enjoyed our vacation on the beautiful island. We were saddened with the fact that this house has good bones and could be such a great VRBO! A little elbow grease and personal items cleared out; would When I spoke to Pamela about our concerns (last day) she seemed unfazed by clutter and bugs around home. We have a duty of property owners to make these homes comfortable and clean for our guests. Refund (cleaning) was asked for and received. I FEEL WE HAVE AN OBLIGATION TO HOLD OUR HOME IN HIGH REGARD FOR GUESTS. REMOVAL OF PERSONAL ITEMS; GARBAGE REMOVAL; CLEANLINESS AND MAKING SURE ALL AREAS OF HOME ARE IN WORKING ORDER IS A MUST FOR ANY VRBO.

There are not enough words to describe how great this trip was. It is a nice cottage style home, something we Canadians are used to and we loved it! Pamela and Ken were fantastic. Pamela was an amazing host, she not only gave us recommendations on things to do, but also where to go for things that we wanted. Our group of 6 really had a wonderful time. No lies when it comes to location, from the foot of the driveway you look left and see a beautiful mountain view, you look right and you can see the beach through the walkway only 30 seconds away. When you walk through the walk way you feel like you're on a private beach - definitely the most beautiful beach on the island, and we went to all of them!

The house is very clean and the bedrooms were spacious with very comfortable beds. The sound of the birds in the morning reminds you that you are truly in paradise. The beach equipment was great, the cart Pamela provides came in handy for bringing our stuff to the beach and the towels were more than plenty.

Everything was close by - Kailua, Hanauma Bay, Chie's Luau, Waikiki and some of the greatest views.

I would recommend this to anyone - families, girls trips etc...

Pamela was always available if we had any questions and she even came to support us while we played in our Lacrosse tournament - Mahalo Pamela!

We were 6 women and we had an amazing time.

Much Aloha Pamela.

Thanks from Marisa and the girls!

Hawaii is beautiful, this house not so much.

  • 3 of 5

The owners are very friendly and helpful. She made sure we knew we could call her with any questions or if we needed something. There were at least a gazillion towels which we ended up using and washing probably twice over. The bed I slept in was super comfy and she even had a hospital bed for grandpa to sleep in which helped a ton. She did clean up the house before we came, but the house really could use a deep clean to get rid of cobwebs and such. Also, it has a definite old smell which might be helped by new carpet or maybe just hard floors. I am an admitted germaphobe, so I had a hard time being comfortable in the house. We tried to keep ourselves busy outside of the house for the most part. I still have this place 3 stars because the beach nearby was amazing, they had boogie boards and beach toys for my kids, nothing in the house was broken, and the bugs weren't as bad as I feared. My kids had an amazing time, so that is what matters.
