Thank you so much for letting us stay in this beautiful home. We played in the ocean everyday and went on a ton of adventures! The boogie boards and snorkeling gear was very much appreciated.

Spacious and very peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Vic was very helpful from the beginning. If I had any questions he was fast to respond. He met us at the house and showed is around. Answering any questions we had and showing us where things were. The house was very large and comfortable. We had a 1 year old with us and there was plenty of room for him to crawl around. The bathroom has lots of counter space and is very clean. We love the beach at Waimanalo and it's just a short walk from the house. I would definitely stay here again! Thanks Vic!!!

Wonderful place for a relaxed family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Vic is a wonderful host and went out of his way to accommodate us during the rental process, and made us feel right at home when we arrived. We really enjoyed our 9-night stay at Glass Ball Hideaway. The house has a classic 50s/60s beach house vibe but with many modern amenities (extremely comfortable beds/linens, air-conditioning -- which we never needed as the ocean breeze was plenty sufficient). The house was VERY clean and well appointed with most everything you'd need. There was a good supply of kitchen appliances that I made use of -- electric griddle, crock pot, blender, toaster oven. I couldn't find a usable electric mixer to make a cake and Vic was kind enough to bring one right over. I did miss having a washer and dryer, and did go down into town and use the laundromat there one time while we were there, but it wasn't a big deal. The house is on a major thoroughfare and it IS kind of noisy with the car and truck traffic (if you close all the windows it significantly reduces it, but then you miss out on the lovely ocean breeze). I slept in the front bedroom closest to the road and got used to it pretty quickly. You can't hear anything at all from the back bedroom. That said, the location was great. We didn't want to stay near any of the resort areas or highly commercial areas so we really appreciated this nice residential, kind of rural area. Nothing is more than about an hour away by car and we went often into Honolulu and pretty much saw the entire Island and sampled a lot of the lovely towns. The little village of Waimanalo itself has a great little grocery store (Shima's) with an incredible seafood section and some cool, walkable restaurants. There is a small charter school next to the house (K-3, I think) and it was a delight to hear the children singing traditional Hawaiian songs every morning. Best for last: the beach is one of the most beautiful you'll ever see. We are not ocean swimmers so can't comment on the suitability for swimming etc., but there were plenty of swimmers and body surfers when we were there. Thanks again Vic for a wonderful vacation!

Beautiful little beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

I am writing this review 2 years later, as I was checking to see if it was available for our next trip. My husband and I stayed here with our son who was 12 at the time and we absolutely fell in love with Waimanalo Beach. The cozy cottage is well designed with a great vibe. We were so glad that there were beach umbrellas, mats and beach shoes available to use, because we certainly didn't bring any. The host brought us more towels when we needed them. and there were plenty of condiments and spices in the fridge and pantry to cook with. It is worth mentioning that one of the bedrooms is close to a busy highway, but traffic could not really be heard when the air conditioner was as on. I would stay here again. :)
