Experience Hawaii in an exquisite beachfront mansion with panoramic ocean views on beautiful Waimanalo Beach (famous filming locale for Magnum P.I., Hawaii 5-0, & Lost).  Waimanalo's small town doesn't allow hotels, making it the perfect getaway from the busy tourist spots, yet still close to so many great activities and attractions! The countryside of Waimanalo is slow moving and filled with Aloha, beauty, and authentic Hawaiian experiences.

The Royal Hawaiian Estate offers a luxurious and relaxing open floor plan maximizing the breathtaking scenic views from floor to ceiling windows and doors which open up to the beautiful surroundings. The multiple levels of the estate provide 6 bedrooms boasting beautiful ocean views while the other 3 rooms overlook the spectacular Ko'olau Mountains. The entryway to the guest wing at the top of the second floor creates options to suit your needs for community living or close it for a more private experience among guests. The guest wing becomes a completely separate 3 story home with its own private entrance, kitchen, dining room, and living room. 

While staying at this luxurious beach estate, you will have no worries due to the attention to details which is above and beyond expectations. In addition to the comfortable bedrooms, large indoor living spaces, and gourmet kitchen, the outdoor spaces offer flexibility for entertaining or relaxing as you desire. Embrace your own private fenced yard, beach entrance, large covered patios, outdoor bar, BBQ grill, large pool with a built in slide and a lava rock waterfall, outdoor shower and hot tub! At night the estate comes to life with blazing Tiki torches and custom landscape lighting. Enhance any gathering, indoor or out, with our whole house sound system including Pandora and Rhapsody. 

Almost any imaginable water sport and Hawaiian experience is in proximity including Sea Life Park where you can swim with the dolphins and enjoy #1 rated Chief's Hawaiian Luau fire dancers. Traveling along the coastal Kalanianaole Highway, and just minutes away, you'll find attractions such as Blowhole, Makapu'u Beach, Tide Pools, Sandy Beach, Makapu'u Lighthouse (for whale watching), multiple lookout points, Hanauma Bay for world famous snorkeling, and Koko Marina ( just to name a few). Don't forget about the unbelievable trails, such as Koko Crater and Manoa Falls, which make for a great adventure.

Just 10 minutes either direction brings you shopping and famous restaurants such as Roy's in Hawaii Kai or try eclectic locally grown food from Cactus in Kailua. Plus just 20-minutes to Honolulu, 30-minutes to Waikiki and Ala Moana Mall, 35-minutes to Pearl Harbor and 45-minutes to the North Shore for world class surfing! This is truly a special location...  

Note: Special Rates are for 12 guests or less. Additional guests may be added at an additional $300 per guest per night.

About Jessi Whigham

The home was purchased by David Cooke in 2012. He lived in Waimanalo full-time for seven years and fell in love with the beach, majestic mountain views, local Hawaiian town living, absence of hotels and crowds, the most amazing drive along the coast into Honolulu and Waikiki, and super location for getting to wherever he wanted to go and see and do!

Why Waimanalo:

The home has been completely renovated! Included in the renovations is an elevator. The property is huge, very well kept, It has a relaxing Hawaiian feel with coral and natural stone floors, large windows with incredible Ocean and mountain views everywhere, It has 6 bedrooms in the main house and 3 more bedrooms in the attached guest house and a gated courtyard with plenty of private parking. If 5 or 6 couples, or a large family wants a place that is big enough to accommodate them, very well kept, filled with amenities, great location, awesome views and beach, but doesn't want to be split up in a hotel in the tourist trap, sharing the pools and other amenities with lots of others, this is one of the only properties around this size and in this condition. The location is awesome, right on the Ocean, mountain backdrop just minutes drive from so many attractions...

The Unique Benefits at this House:

Elevator, Private Pool, Hot Tub and Water Slide. Amazing location Beachfront Lots of entertainment for a stormy day. Back-up generator (don't let a power outage interrupt your plans) Lots of safety gates and accessories for children. Family and belongings are safe with our simple to use state of the art security system. Most doors are combination locks eliminating the need to keep up with keys. 3 minutes from Sea Life Park and Chief's Luau. Property manager less than a mile away to address any needs or concerns. Heated pool AC in all 9 bedrooms and guest wing. Snorkel gear, boogy and paddle boards, ocean kayaks, beach toys, chairs, umbrellas, etc provided free.

Why Jessi Whigham chose Oahu

WOW! WOW! WOW!

  • 5 of 5

Our entire family just loved staying in this beautiful home. It quite literally had EVERYTHING that we needed from high chairs to locked stairs to a gourmet, perfectly equipped kitchen to the fabulous and well-loved by the children pool slide! Our adult kids used the paddle boards and we all loved the beach access. It could not have been better!!!

The most wonderful week at a wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5

Our large family, 16 to 79 years, stayed at this unbelievable house for a week to celebrating my husband & my 60th anniversary. Everything in the description could not be more correct...it was even better when we were actually there.

Everything about the property was extremely clean & beautiful. The man who took care of the property was so helpful & frienly. He came everyday to make sure everything was running well. He even bought groceries for us before we arrived. It was so wonderful for all of us to be in one house & at the same time the house is large enough that everyone could have enough privacy if they so desired. The kitchen is fantastic. We cooked all of our meals there, even Thanksgiving.

Jessi was amazing & helpful to work with! I would recommend this property to anyone I know!!

Some of our group went hiking, some went to see the Pearl Harbor museum & others went to a well know beach. Some of us just enjoyed the house, the pool & just being there.

Spectacular Property!

  • 5 of 5

Several families stayed for one week at this property. It was an amazing time. Easy gathering for all the families with plenty of room. The pool, pool slide, and hot tub were great retreats for adults and kids after stepping through the front gate into the ocean for great snorkeling. The amenities are too numerous to count. Top notch kitchen appliances, beverage fridges and ice makers on every level. Pool and ocean gear is plentiful. No reason to leave the estate!

The No.1 estate in Oahu!

  • 5 of 5

We went on a company trip from Japan.

The estate is perfect! Paradise of earth!

We loved it so much that it was our second time renting the estate.

You have a private beach, which I think is one of the most beautiful beach in Oahu.

The pool is equiped with a water slide.

It's one of the biggest and the best estate in Oahu! (I know, because I've checked all the estates in VRBO!)

We'll be back for sure!

Unforgettable Experience!

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent our spring break in this amazing property. Our group came from Texas with our extended family of three generations including children of all ages. This home has it all and is so luxuriously appointed. You will not find another property like it.

The views from this home don't even look real. The beach is so pristine and the waters are gentle and perfect for children to play in. We loved to take daily kayak rides and to snorkel in the clear water. We even saw sea turtles not far from shore!

The kids loved the the pool and water slide as well as the private grassy yard and the game room. There was so much to do! The bedrooms were comfortable and the open living room and kitchen area were exquisite. Thank you so much for making our week the trip of a lifetime!

I love this location! On one of Hawaii's best beaches where Magnum PI (and other shows) were filmed, the beach has no hotels so is not crowded with tourists like Waikiki, but all within 10 minutes are breathtaking coastal drive with Sea Life Park, Chief's Luau, Golf Course, Makapu'u Lighthouse Trail (whale-watching), Oceanic Institute, Sandy Beach, Hanauma Bay (Snorkeling), Blowhole and arrive in Hawaii Kai with shopping, restaurants, movie theater, grocery stores and all sorts of activities including para-sailing, jet skiing, deep sea fishing, boating, cruises, hang-gliding, scuba-diving, and more! Within 10 minute drive in the other direction are Waimanalo Bellows beach park, another golf course, horseback riding, a polo field, Pali Lookout (historical Hawaiian battleground) and Kailua with lots of shops, restaurants, grocery stores, beaches, etc.. Waimanalo is a local Hawaiian town free of Hotels but only 30-45 minutes of scenic drive to Pearl Harbor, Honolulu and Waikiki. I always like to escape the tourist trap areas but be close to everything I want to do and see. Waimanalo is one of Hawaii's best-kept secrets with awesome beach, great location, less congestion, authentic Hawaiian town feel and lots of local people, and incredible ocean and lava formed mountain views everywhere!
