Paradise in Waimanalo
Our family has the most incredible time at Laura’s beautiful property. From the moment we entered, we felt welcomed and at home. The beach access could not be beat! Laura has provided EVERYTHING to make a holiday in Oahu memorable. Paddle boards, boogy boards, fins, kayaks, ample beach towels... you name it. The location is prime for going into Honolulu, Sandy Beach, or up to the North Shore. There are restaurants within walking distance and a small market five minutes drive away. All and all.. perfect.
Feels like home away from home
This was our 2nd time staying at this property. It's set up with everything you need for a wonderful, relaxing stay.
The host, Laura, is great!
It is a private paradise!
The Laura’s property is marvelous. We stayed there 7 days and we were sad when we had to leave. We had a great family vacation on the island. The Laura’s place is very private next to a beautiful beach. The place is clean, spacious and very well designed with a great views even including the ocean view. We really loved having a breakfast on the balcony surrounded by great views at mountains and palms and other tropical plants. The place is equipped with beach and swimming gear - very convenient for all ages especially for kids.
The location is very convenient. Very close to Kailua. Walking distance to a few great food places like Ai Love Nalo.
Laura is super nice and very helpful.
I hope to be back.
Mahalo for such a wonderful review. It was soo nice to meet you and your beautiful family. I especially loved speaking with your son, who was full of energy in all the best ways!!!
Please yes, do return,
Wedding/Honeymoon in Paradise
I cannot say enough how wonderful our trip to Hawaii and staying at Laura’s cottage was. I cried when it was time to leave. 8 days was not long enough. Laura is amazing and kind.. the cottage location is right on the beach and the beach is so gorgeous! Very few people on the beach and we were able to walk right out to the beach and be married with the turquoise water in the background. Where the grass in the yard ends, the sand begins. We will be back! Love you Laura! Thank you for the hospitality and kindness!
These guests truly warmed my heart. I hope they will decide to visit again,
I felt an instant connection with them. To realize they were married on the beach in front of the house made it even more special! They fill forever be FAMILY!
I send them all the Aloha success and happiness from Waimanalo Beach,
Private beach on a very crowded island- Wonderful property!
This property was everything in the description and more! Everything we needed during our stay was provided. Many "water toys" were available for our use on the beach. The beach was wonderful. It was basically a private beach on an island full of people. It was the only place we could actually get away from the crowds. Laura was awesome! She stayed out of our way to give us privacy, but was always available and easy to find when we had questions. The check in / check out process was very easy. We were a family of four staying here and there was plenty of everything we needed and plenty of room to sleep. We did not use the kitchen much, but it appeared to have everything needed to cook meals. We loved having a place to go to get away from traffic and people. There was plenty of space that a hotel doesn't provide and several seating/ relaxing areas on the property that we enjoyed. And the private beach space is something that you just can't get at a resort. The only thing that wasn't perfect was the fact that it isn't air conditioned. We went at the end of July so it was probably as hot as it gets on Oahu. It was a little stuffy during the day but at night with opened windows the ocean breezes cooled the space nicely. It just took a little getting used to without air conditioning but we were not uncomfortable. We visited Honolulu and were VERY happy that we decided not to stay there. This was a great get-away from the hustle and bustle of the city and and easy drive to anywhere on the island. Highly recommend!
Fabulous Beyond Expectations - A Must Stay When Vacationing in Oahu!
This was our first-time using VRBO and we were a bit nervous about picking a place to stay for our family vacation of four (my wife and I and 2 teens) from just a website profile and photos. This was the best vacation stay my family has ever had. The place was super clean and modern. The location was right on Wamanalo Beach which was one of, if not the best, beaches in Oahu. Soft, fine white sand and clear blue waters surrounded by beautiful Hawaiian mountain landscapes. We woke up every morning and walked out of the backyard on to the beach with a cup of coffee and sat on the beach to take in the fantastic and life energizing sunrises. Our Host was wonderful as she provided us with helpful information and very gracious Hawaiian hospitality. The Host makes available the use of beach chairs, a beach umbrella, snorkel gear, kayaks, and surf or boogie boards which our teens enjoyed. When our teens needed a break, they merely walked back inside from the beach into their own private bedroom and bathroom equipped with a TV and full WiFi access. This allowed my wife and I to enjoy much desired beach-time to the fullest without stress or worry. This location in Waimanalo is ideally located and only minutes away between Hanauma Bay and Makapuu Point to the South and Lanikai and Kailua Beach Towns to the North and only 30 minutes away from Honolulu and 40 minutes away to the west side of the island. If you are a looking for an ideal place to relax and yet want the flexibility to easily reach other island destinations, then this is the place for you. In addition to the terrific island location, on-the-beach access, and superior living amenities, our Host was most gracious, caring, kind, and helpful. For us she was the island's crown jewel of hospitality. This was for us a fabulous experience beyond expectations. Our family looks forward to returning to this must stay location and into the welcoming arms of a wonderful Host for another fantastic vacation experience. Mahalo and Aloha!
What a delightful family! It’s just da’ bes’ to see guests happy, relaxed and enjoying the sun and surf. It was an absolute pleasure to have Taso and family visit Waimanalo.
