About Chris Laird

I grew up in Wamanalo and raised my 3 children there as well. Our family enjoys Surfing, Kayaking, Boogie Boarding, Sailing, Fishing and long walks on the beach, we love and respect the ocean and we hope you and your family will enjoy this beautiful home as much as we do!

Chris Laird purchased this house in 1998

Why Chris Laird chose Oahu

I grew up in Waimanalo and my family and I love the community and the ability to get away from the city and enjoy the peacefulness of the countryside, unwind on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world and still be minutes away from great restaurants, shopping, the cinema and all major Hawaii attractions.

What makes this house unique

The house is steps away from one of the most pristine beaches in the world, being on the East side of the island, you can see the most amazing sunrises! The house is set on a large property in a tropical setting. It has a hot tub and cedar sauna outside, a large covered lanai with a gas grill, swings and jungle gym in the yard and outdoor showers to use after the beach! It is the perfect spot for taking long walks on miles of white sand beach, surfing, kayaking, paddling, snorkeling, boogie boarding, etc., the Ocean is free of coral and rock with crystal clear swimming. It is a very kid-friendly house, yard, neighborhood and beach.

Amazing house!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled from Kentucky and found this gem hidden away from the crowds of Waikiki! The house was perfect for our family! Traveling with kids is tough but there was 2 pack n plays , a high chair, play ground and board games! It made it so much easier! We loved he outside table it is where we ate all our meals . We didn't go it to eat but on we because we loved the house and feel of it so much. The walk to the beach is so close and the beach was amazing! We will be back!!!

The beach was amazing! Peaceful & Private!

  • 5 of 5

Chris has a great home and does an excellent job of communicating with renters. The house fit our family of 8 perfectly. The location ended up being very good for us as we were close to lots of sites but in a private enough of an area to get a more local feel. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to everyone. If we were fortunate enough to own a home in Hawaii I think it would be something like this one. Last but not least the kitchen was updated and we had plenty of area to eat but we preferred eating on the front deck surrounded by a great yard.

Our new home away from home!!!

  • 5 of 5

While contemplating our stay I spoke with Chris several times. He was very kind and responded quickly to all my questions. When we arrived to Hinalea house it was very inviting. The house is on big property and is very family friendly. We traveled with four teens and an 8 year old and there was never a dull moment. The playground and zip line were super fun for my little. The surf boards and boogey boards entertained my teens. There is a wagon on the property full of sand toys and chairs for beach excursions. We traveled the island throughout our stay and I can say, definitively, that the Waimanalo beach was the best on the island. The location is perfect, a short drive to Kailua, where we grocery shopped and had a couple meals. I recommend the Makapuu Lighthouse hike at 5am to watch the sunrise... amazing!!!! Hinalea House is a home away from home. You will regret not choosing this location. We are already planning our next trip!!! Thank you Chris and Jacqui for sharing this beautiful place with us!! Can't wait to return!

What can I say. The house is beautiful, exactly as advertised. They provided everything we needed: towels, dishwasher soap, all sorts of beach stuff (toys, boogie boards, snorkeling gear). It is a perfect property for families with young kids!

The property was well maintained and exactly like the description on the website. It was beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We went on a family vacation with 6 adults. The house was a perfect place to vacation. There was plenty of room on the property to accommodate everyone, we were never crowded. The house is located a short walk from the beach which is awesome. We also loved the hot tub. The yard was beautiful, which made it nice to sit outside and enjoy the beauty. Everything was perfect, just as advertised!

Perfect 3/23 - 3/27

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently planned and hosted the wedding for our daughter in Honolulu. We did a great deal of planning and researching to ensure the day was perfect. We decided to try HomeAway for our place to stay. I sent a handful of messages to several homeowners explaining our needs and desires. Chris not olny replied immediatly but also took the time and energy to call me personally. It did not take long for us to decide to rent his beautiful home on Waimanalo Beech. This house was exactly what we hoped for. The house has three bedrooms all with king size beds. All of which ave very comfortable. In addition there are two day beds in the family room. The home had EVERYTHING we needed and a lot we did not. The living area is very nicely appointed and adequate for large families. We had eight people in our party and never felt cramped. I must admit we spent most of our time on the front porch enjoying the yard and Hawaii life. The beech is beautiful and only a short walk from the home. This allowed us to enjoy the beech and feel seculded when we were not. The area is perfect. Just a short drive to anything one might need.. stores, food, and shops. Only 30 mins to Waikiki beech or the airport. Although we did not use them this home has a hot tub and sauna, and many games and activities for children.As many other reviews stated the area has a few chickens and yes a rooster or two. This manner of waking was delightful for me. Not something I would complain about. I would much rather wake to that sound than traffic or people. My family had no issues with Haehay.. yes they named the rooster.. lol..

Chris and his family have made sure that all thier guests have everything they made need or require. This includes all kitchen utensils and bath towels. Beech towels and toys are abundant. We did use the boogie boards a few times and had a blast. The home itself is nicely decorated and very fucntional. The shower in the Master bedroom is older but still did as it intended. The living area and kitchen looks to have been renovated and felt very comfortable. The only room to have an AC is the Master bedroom. Which again we never used. The home has good air flow and was never uncomfortable even when temps reached above 80 degrees. Chris was always available but not present. He allowed us to enjoy our time in the home without feeling like we were guests. His directions and check-in procedures were perfect. Never once did we need to reach out or complain. PERFECT!

A lot of people love to take their kids to Sea Life Park - which is only about 5 minutes or less away by car. Also, the Makapu'u Trail hike is only about 5 minutes away by car as well - it is a great hike up a new paved road that offers scenic views and during the season - excellent whale watching!
