This is a perfect house for large or multi-generational families to cook, eat and play together.
Aloha Nalo means hidden love. Once you stay at this beachfront gem; you too will know you have discovered a great, hidden secret...beautiful Waimanalo! The sunrises over turquoise water and white sand beach; the sheer, emerald green cliffs of the Ko'olau Mountains; the warm ocean breezes; the slow, friendly pace. You will fall in love with it too.
Rated the #1 Beach in all US in 2015 by Dr. Beach. Although, Lani Kai and Kailua Beach tend to receive all the attention, quiet Waimanalo Bay shares the same magical windward coast charms but without the crowds. The white sandy bottom bay and beach stretches for miles. It remains one of Oahu s unspoiled beauties. Staying in Waimanalo will allow you to enjoy the feeling of being away from it all but still have all the convenience of Waikiki and downtown Honolulu only 30 minutes away. Waimanalo Beach is also famous for the filming of Magnum PI, Baywatch, Lost, Hawaii 50 and other shows.
