About the property

4 BR, 4.5 BA Beachfront Beach House w/private yard, BBQ, beach gear & AC

Relax "Under the Palms" in a 1930's-style plantation home with the 2015 best beach as your backyard (literally!) This spacious, 2-story beach house offers gorgeous ocean views, a large front yard for BBQs, and miles of secluded beach outside your backdoor.

NOTE: We do NOT allow WEDDINGS (ceremonies or receptions), parties, or events of any size on our property.

IMPORTANT: For all other inquiries, please click "ASK OWNER A QUESTION" and introduce yourself before making a reservation request! Please do NOT use the "Request to Book" or "Book it Now" button. Our beach house is very special to us, so we take time to get to know our guests before approving any reservation requests. Sharing about yourself, who you will be traveling with, the purpose of your travels and your plans for your vacation will expedite your request as it helps us to determine if our house is appropriate for your needs.

A spacious beachfront estate awaits you on breathtakingly beautiful Waimanalo beach. Get away from the noise and the crowds and enjoy a relaxing vacation in the countryside. This 4 bedroom, 4.5 bath estate was designed especially for enjoyment of our spectacular ocean views. Enjoy unbeatable ocean views from the picture windows that line the living room, dining room, and upstairs bedroom. A fully equipped kitchen looks out on the lush Ko'olau Mountain Range to one side, and the ocean to the other. Plentiful windows and island breezes keep the house cool and naturally well ventilated, however AC is provided for the comfort of guests who may not be used to our island temperatures and humidity.

All bedrooms offer gorgeous ocean views as well. In fact, you can take in the world-famous Waimanalo sunrise without leaving the comfort of your bed! All bedrooms are equipped with AC, ceiling fans and floor fans. Children in particular love our twin-size window beds available in two of the downstairs bedrooms. Fall asleep to the gentle sound of the waves and the wind rustling through the coconut trees from any room in the house. Enjoy stargazing on the beach, or simply enjoy the reflection of the moonlight on the water from your bed.

The property includes a coconut grove in the spacious front yard, a paved BBQ area, a 4-burner Weber Genesis II BBQ Grill, and direct access to the beach. Savor ocean views and the island breeze from your private second-story lanai, accessible directly from the living room. Waimanalo beach is also perfect for boogie boarding, a favorite pastime of local children, and you'll find plenty of boogie boards in the garage for your enjoyment. Two private, outdoor showers with warm water allow you to enjoy a comfortable rinse-off before returning into the house.

For your convenience, two washing machines and two dryers are provided. We have a laundry room on the first floor with one washer and dryer, along with an ironing board, laundry sink, and clothes drying rack. A Dyson stick vacuum is also located in the laundry room. A second, high-capacity HE washer-dryer set are located in the garage, along with an extra large drying rack that easily accommodates beach towels. We know our guests frequently travel in large groups and could use the extra machines!

Enjoy the property as if it were your own. The house is equipped with a keyless entry lock, which will allow you to check-in at your leisure anytime after your official check-in time.

We like to get to know our guests before finalizing any bookings. Please click "CONTACT OWNER" to contact us rather than the "Request to Book" button. Please let us know the purpose for your visit and tell us about your family or the group with whom you will be traveling. This will help us ensure that the property is appropriate for your needs so that you can enjoy a relaxing vacation.

Also, please note that if you are requesting to check-in on a date when we have another guest checking out, you will be required to check-in late (at or after 6 pm). Similarly, you will be required to check-out early (at or before 9 am) if we have another guest checking in the day you are checking out. This is due to the fact that our house is quite large and takes a significant amount of time to clean between guests. We appreciate your understanding of this policy as it allows us to adequately prepare our home for you or for the next guest.

Perfect place for a family vacation in Hawaii!

  • 5 of 5

Talk about paradise! This house is definitely it!! Our family of 7 adults spent Christmas in this wonderful beach home and every one of us DEFINITELY wants to go back. The home itself is spacious and comfortable. With 4 bedrooms, each with their own bath, we all had space and privacy. The common area is comfortable (and not at all fussy!) and the kitchen extremely well stocked. We ate in about half the time and found having a crock pot, rice cooker and every dish and utensil we could need really helpful. While the house has lots of TVs and decent internet service, we didn't spend much time using either. Instead, we spent most of our time at the house either on the lanai or the beach. Our two favorite spots! The view from the lanai is beyond description. The mountains on one side (which gave us a truly awesome sunset our first night there, letting us know this would be a very special week!) and the beach on the other. Every direction you look is beautiful. You have all these same views from in the house, too. Every bedroom has a beach/ocean view and the living room and kitchen have windows looking out both ways. It's hard to find a place in the house that doesn't have a stunning view. The beach is PERFECT! Literally steps away, just across the back yard, is the most beautiful beach I've ever been on. Every morning we were treated to an awesome sunrise, and the water was perfect for playing in. And thanks to all the boogie boards, beach chairs, etc., at the house, we had everything we needed to make the most of it. Besides the wonderful home and perfect setting, the house is also near LOTS of places you want to visit. We were 10 minutes from the best snorkeling around at Hanauma Bay, and thanks to tips from Chloe, we were there at the perfect time. The nearby Makapu'u Point Lighthouse trail was also literally minutes away and provided a great hike with awesome views (including MANY whale sightings!) Honolulu is only a half hour away, with all its activities and places to visit, and we found traffic to be no issue at all. And while the immediate area is small town, there were some great restaurants you can easily walk to. Had very few (minor) issues while there, and any time we contacted Chloe she was friendly and helpful, always wanting to be sure we were having a great time. Can't say enough wonderful things about the house or renting from Chloe! Hope to be back sooner rather than later!

Owner's Response: Aloha Debbie, so happy to hear you enjoyed our house so much!! Thank you for sharing all of the things that you loved about our house; I do agree with you that the lanai, beach and ocean views are the best parts! I’m so glad you had so much fun and that I was able to help you plan your trip to make the most of your time. Thank you also for being understanding about the minor issues that came up. You were wonderful guests and we’d love to host you again soon! Mahalo, Chloe

Unforgettable 40th Birthday Vacation That Will Never Be Topped!

  • 5 of 5

I can’t say enough good things about our stay at Ka Mala Niu. The house was just perfect for our group of 4 adult couples celebrating my husband’s 40th birthday. We had enough space to spread out but it was cozy enough in the kitchen/dining area that you could have conversations with people sitting at the dining room table while you were cooking. The 4 bedrooms were all a nice size and each of them had gorgeous views of the back yard and beautiful Waimanalo Beach! Speaking of the beach - this was literally the most beautiful beach I’ve been to in my life surpassing the places we stayed in the Caribbean and Mexico. We’re talking beautiful white sand and clear blue water with a picturesque view of Rabbit Island off in the distance. So gorgeous!

More quick notes about the house.

The good: the patio on the second floor was perfect for having our morning coffee, we hung out there a lot. The big downstairs bedroom has an old school jacuzzi tub that works miracles on your sore body after an overly ambitious hike up Koko Head Trail. The house is fully loaded with enough dishes, glassware, towels and beach gear for 8 adults and then some. I’m not ashamed to say we spent an entire afternoon building sandcastles and boogie boarding! Close proximity to the beach didnt hurt either!

The bad:

The house is located right next to the public beach access and there is no fence around the back yard. Basically what this results in is an overlap of the two areas which means people are constantly walking through the “back yard” area to get to the beach or sometimes people will just hang out and toss a football around back there. We discussed this with Chloe’s mother and she said we were within our rights to shoo people away since it was technically private property but it never bothered us enough that we felt it necessary to do so. Just thought it was worth mentioning as it was something we were surprised by the first day. The only other two minor things to note is there is no door on the upstairs bedroom and there is no oven. Both of these were fine for us as the couple who stayed in that room were usually the last to go to sleep and we didn’t have need for the oven. We cooked breakfast almost every morning and dinner twice and between the stove and the grill we had everything we needed.

All in all this was a truly amazing trip in a gorgeous setting and we can’t thank Chloe and her mother enough for being so accomodating. We loved it!

Owner's Response: Aloha Gina, I am so pleased to hear that you enjoyed our house so much! And delighted to hear that our beach is the most beautiful beach you have seen in your life – we agree and it’s so wonderful to hear that from our guests, too! Just to clarify about the public area behind the house: our property extends about 20 feet behind our house; after that, the grassy area is actually part of the public beach park. This is true for all of the houses along our street, and all beaches in Hawaii are public so that everyone can enjoy them. It is a strong value here in Hawaii to preserve our natural environment, so most of our beaches are surrounded with public green space. This is how we keep it beautiful! At the same time, please know that we value the privacy of our guests and are trying to find ways to create more privacy behind the house. I’m sorry if there was any miscommunication, and we hope it did not detract from your stay. You were wonderful guests and we’d love to have you back again! Mahalo, Chloe

Magical Hawaii Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Under the Palms. The house fit us perfectly. It was spacious with incredible ocean views from every room. Large front and back yards with hot water outside beach showers. The town of Waimanalo was the perfect pace for us. The beach was beautiful and felt like our own private beach. Chloe was very attentive to our questions and gave us great suggestions on where to shop and eat. We will definitely be coming back!

Owner's Response: Aloha Paul, so glad to hear that our house was perfect for your family! Waimanalo is slow-paced so it is for those who want to slow down and enjoy life, and I’m so glad you got to experience that. :) Mahalo, Chloe

Absolute perfection

  • 5 of 5

I can not say enough about this property, I could honestly go on and on describing just how perfect it was. I took my family of 8 here and from the moment we walked up those stairs to see that incredible view we had officially arrived to "Beach Heaven". Every single room in the home has an ocean view (All Bedrooms, kitchen, living room).

Chloe is a true gem, she was great from start to finish. I was traveling with 10 month old twins and Chloe went beyond and had 2 high chairs, play pin, etc ready for me on arrival.

No need to bring anything to this home, it literally has it all. I have rented many homes through VRBO and other sites and this by far was one of the best ! We had a vehicle which made going to the store easy. I was a bit nervous knowing this was the windy side of the island but rest assured with 80+ degree weather you welcome the mild wind. We went in November and it was perfect.

I had many excursions planned throughout the island for my family and we honestly just wanted to stay at the house and play at the beach. Waimanalo is definitely one of a kind. We quickly became acquainted with The locals around the immediate area that would come by the beach in front of the house daily. Great people.

We will be back for sure !

Owner's Response: Aloha Raquel, I am so happy to hear that our house provided “Beach Heaven” for you! It was no problem at all to provide an extra high chair for you – you’re the amazing one for traveling with infant twins! I’m so glad that you enjoyed our beach house so much; I will say that most of our guests say that they wish they had spent more time at the house and less time sight-seeing! Thank you for your very kind review, and we hope to host you again soon! Mahalo, Chloe

You can't get closer to ocean than this large, comfortable house situated with great views from all the rooms. The lanai is well shaded and a large amount of glass protects from excess ocean breezes. With the kitchen and living room on the 2nd floor, the times when the family are together give everyone a sense of the ocean at all times. Recently-added air conditioning made a major difference since the week we were there in October was quite warm. While neither the living room or kitchen were especially large, they were spacious enough to feel comfortable.

Chloe managed everything from reservations to our time there masterfully. There are four large digital tvs, but one developed problems and she immediately removed it and took it to the other side of the island to get it fixed. Otherwise, no problems.

The beech deserves special mention. It goes on for longer than we could walk in both directions, and was very wide. The waves, as one sees in the picture, were gentle and the shallow water continues for quite a distance, so this is ideal for hanging out or walking, if not for surfing or snorkling, although there's plenty of that elsewhere on Oahu.

Beds were very comfortable and modern, sheets, towels, etc. were plentiful and of good quality. The house, we guessed, might have been constructed in the 60s or even earlier and then updated, but don't expect marble and glass and the other more modern stuff we are personally used to, but didn't miss because we were here for the best Hawaii has to offer -- and we got it.

Highly recommended!

Owner's Response: Aloha Howard, I am so glad to hear that you were able to thoroughly enjoy our amazing ocean views! And, of course, our beautiful white sand beach. Thank you for sharing with other guests what to expect with our home. Our beach house was originally constructed in the 1930’s and remodeled significantly in the 1980’s, with continual improvements made all the time. Throughout all of this, we have worked very hard to maintain the historical character of the home in its original 1930’s plantation house style. We know that there are luxury homes out there with modern finishes, but we have chosen to remain faithful to our local style and history. Thank you also for your patience and understanding about the TV; technical difficulties do happen from time to time and I am so glad we were able to fix that for you right away. Thanks again for taking the time to review our property! Mahalo, Chloe

Waimanalo is where the cars move slow and the island breezes blow - truly the place to get away from it all. Enjoy a sleepy, beachside community of local residents with very few tourists. You'll find small convenience stores and restaurants only a few blocks away, including a 7-11, a McDonald's, and a few local favorites: Serg's Mexican Kitchen, Keneke's BBQ (which also serves up local style - read "large" - shave ice!), Ono Steaks & Shrimp Shack, Hawaiian Island Cafe, 'Ai Love Nalo vegan restaurant and Waimanalo Market Co-op. Although Waimanalo is secluded, it's only a 10 minute drive from Kailua town, with its multitude of restaurants, boutiques, and other conveniences, including a Whole Foods and Target.

Families and snorkelers alike will be happy to know that Waimanalo is also home to world-famous Hanauma Bay, where thousands of brightly colored tropical fish swim around our corals to the delight of generations of children and adults.

For an up-close marine life experience, drive 10 minutes up the highway to Sea Life Park. Swim with dolphins, sea lions, sting rays, or even sharks! See the world's only wholphin, experience a top rated Hawaiian luau, enjoy dolphin and sea lion shows, touch sea urchins, learn about penguins, and feed sea turtles all in one day!

The Honolulu Polo Club plays on Sunday afternoons at 3 pm during the summer and fall months (May through October) at the polo fields which are located within walking distance of the house. Entrance is $5/adult, and free for military and kids 12 and under! If you've never seen a polo game before, you are in for a good time, and there are even free brochures about how to watch the game. The polo club also offers lessons for riders of all ages and ability levels.
