Recent Waimanalo Beach reviews

  • Great house with caveats

    "We can confirm the general positive experience other reviewers had, but want to add some additional impressions: + Location in quaint Waimanalo is perfect. Right on the beach as described by others -- could not be nicer from that perspective + Washer/dryer are pretty new and detergents etc. are provided to guests (but both are outside in a closet) + Kitchen appliances etc. are all in good condition and some are newish (toaster broke during our stay, and Christine replaced it immediately) + The second bedroom upstairs does not have a door, it's more a loft situation (Christine mentioned that to me on the phone, so I was not surprised, but it’s not clear from the pictures/description at all). Couple that stayed up there was quite hot despite ocean breeze and fans. + Air conditioning is only in the smaller bedroom downstairs (small unit not strong enough to cool anything beyond the room) + Access to the main bathroom is actually outside of the house (adjacent to main door though) and has no tub, but a huge shower + We had plenty of bugs (mostly ants, geckos, but also a few roaches and centipedes) inside the house. Kind of expected in a tropics location so close to the beach, but feel like there could be done more to control for it (we did not mention it to Christine, because we did not want to have a treatment done with all of us in the house, but she probably would have arranged something) + Christine was *very* difficult to reach prior to our stay, and the calendar on HomeAway was not up-to-date. We had to change plans because of this, unfortunately. Being used to instant confirmations, we were quite nervous about this place being confirmed in time (deposit check need to be mailed). + The house is overall in an okay condition – feels a bit rundown and things need touchups here and there (e.g. some locks are difficult to operate, walls are dirty etc., trashcans rusty etc.). + They have a small backhouse on the property that one can rent in addition for a small fee (I think she said $50/night or so), but we did not and hence can’t comment on that (they won’t rent it out during main house stays) + Internet worked great and was very fast + There are some homeless people around Waimanalo beach (tents by the official beach park) that sometimes walk around the beach. We never felt unsafe in any way, but made sure to lock the house and arm the alarm system whenever we left."

  • An Island Hideaway

    "A hidden treasure sure to appeal to all ages, gathering for a respite from a Winter's blanket of snow! Located well within a thirty minute drive from most attractions, such as Sea Life Park and Whole Foods! Once your provisions are well stocked, there is really no point in ever having to leave!"

  • Great house and location, perfect host

    "The house is great and has a fabulous location for visiting Oahu. It is very close to the beautiful Waimanalo Beach and only 30 minutes to Waikiki. The house is equipped with everything you need for your vacation and Kathleen did everything possible to make our stay as perfect as it could be. I would definitively recommend it and hope I will come back some day."

  • A peaceful home in a great location!

    "We were three generations of ladies from 2 to 70 and all loved this cottage. We felt safe and secure, welcomed and respected. Although the owners are close-by, they were not intrusive at all, only helpful and friendly. We enjoyed walks around the neighbourhood and to the beach across the street. We drove all around the island and were pleased that we'd chosen the most beautiful place."
