TROPICAL BEACHSIDE COTTAGE~~~5 MILES OF WHITE SAND & TURQUOISE WATERS

Waimanalo House Rental Photos and Description

2 BR, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 2-5

Ocean~Song Beach House is situated in a quiet, country style residential setting. It is just a two minute walk from one of the most spectacular beaches in Hawaii!

This beach house is well decorated and totally tropical, a very clean and comfortable home for your island getaway.

It features two bedrooms, two full baths, and a spacious living room which opens directly to a large kitchenette. Sliding glass doors open from the living room to a covered porch, which looks out onto a small but very lush and private tropical garden, complete with the soothing sounds of a tranquil water feature to help you while away the afternoon...

Waimanalo is a truly special place, ideal for those travelers who want to get off the beaten path and who love the beach. It's a great place for surfers and boogie boarders, beach bums and nature lovers. It's a place where you can still feel the spirit of 'Old Hawaii.'

Amenities: Two full bathrooms, one with a bathtub/shower and the other with an extra large shower. The master bedroom has a gorgeous all teak wood sleigh bed, California King Size. The mattress is firm, with a super comfortable temperpedic topper. The second bedroom has a brand new, extremely comfortable plush queen mattress.

Both bedrooms face towards the ocean and receive the wonderful, gentle tradewinds that make falling to sleep the greatest of pleasures!

ABOUT THE NEIGHBORHOOD: WAIMANALO: Waimanalo Beach is spectacular~~~there are five miles of white sand and turquoise sea with picturesque islands floating off the coastline. Giant sea turtles swim in our waters, whales travel through on their winter migration, and thousands of birds sing their tropical melodies, filling the neighborhood with the most beautiful music. In 2001 National Geographic named it one of the most beautiful beaches in the world!

Within a five minute drive you can explore the famous underwater snorkeling park of Hanauma Bay, check out the shows at Sea Life Park, or go horseback riding along scenic mountain trails. It's a great beach to learn how to boogie board.

It's a perfect beach for romantic walks at sunrise.

This community is nestled at the foot of some of the most spectacular mountain ranges of the Islands, and during the winter rains they are teeming with cascading waterfalls that will take your breath away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Skye,

Your Ocean~Song Beach House has given us a fantastic experience in Hawaii that would not have been so exciting had we not been here at your place.



We enjoyed being able to casually rise, breakfast, and plan our days.

We enjoyed being able to walk to the beach and feel the ocean come upon us.

We also enjoyed several events in this area. The Sea Life Park adventure was fantastic and the kids joined a group for hands on experience with the dolphins.



The atmosphere created by your collection of seaside decorating is quite pleasant and refreshing.

We all---Kris, Kody, Vi, Kurt and Carolyn---appreciated your spirited conversations and suggestions.



Aloha & Mahalo from all!

Aloha Skye,

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us! It was so nice to be able to spend time here with my son and his wife to be. It was fun to cook out and eat as a family which I miss soooo much with him living here in Hawaii.

The beach is wonderful!!

The beauty of your home is wonderful! And your kindness over our little problem that occurred was greatly appreciated. THANK YOU...

The time spend here is just what I needed!

Ocean Song Cottage is worth singing about!

  • 5 of 5
Our time at the Ocean Song Beachside Cottage in Waimanalo was perfect. It is a breath-taking piece of paradise full of Aloha. It is hard to describe the serenity we felt as soon as we stepped on the property and the wonderful greeting from our hostess. The cottage and the private garden are beautiful and it was great to feel surrounded by the lush, tropical foliage. The sunrises, the long, sandy beach, the beautiful water, all made Waimanalo Beach a wonderful choice. It was great to be able to escape the hustle and bustle of Honolulu. We especially enjoyed the nice cool breeze at night, flowing through the bedroom windows, and the soft beds that gave us the best sleep in years. No sleeping pills required. The Ocean Song Cottage is worth singing about. We hope to return.

Best Anniversary vacation ever

  • 5 of 5
This place is AMAZING!!!!! Skye greeted my husband and I with a huge ALOHA. We were so excited to finally be here. This place is everything and more than what the description says. Falling asleep to the waves hitting the beach was so peaceful as well as listening to the wind chimes outside the front door. The linens on the bed was the softest we have ever felt. Everything you could want is in this cottage. We cooked on the grill most every night. Skye was sure to let us know where all the locals eat and grocery shop. Everything was conveniently located. It was also nice to be able to pack to go home with all clean clothes. Defiantly look forward to coming back to this beautiful cottage!!!!

Mahalo Skye.

Better than we imagined!

  • 5 of 5
As soon as we stepped on to the property, we were blown away by the beauty, tranquility, and thoughtful touches of this home away from home. We immediately felt at home, especially after meeting and talking to our gracious and wonderful host, Skye. She has put a lot of good energy, hard work, and love into this property and it shows. The most beautiful beach is just a few steps away, and the peaceful town of Waimanalo is well located with plenty of things to do nearby. We will definitely be back, and hope to someday call this beautiful area of the planet our home.

Very Nice Place

  • 5 of 5
THE ACCOMMODATIONS: Skye is a perfect host with a perfect house! The furnishings in the living room and bedrooms are top-notch Hawaiian. It comfortably accommodates four adults -- comfy beds, large living room and large kitchen area. The master bath is small but with a huge shower, and the guest bathroom (with tub/shower) is quite large. Both bedrooms have large closets and plenty of drawers to unload your suitcases and then stash them in the closet to get them out of the way. Only complaint is $2.50 to wash and $2.50 to dry one load of laundry -- many vrbo's don't charge, or you get one load free.
THE NEIGHBORHOOD: It is only a short walk to the beach (literally past 3-4 houses to the short path to the beach), although we were only able to use it one day due to rain. There are dogs and cats in the neighborhood which initially concerned us, but we never heard them and none of them bothered us.
THE TOWNS: The home is only 5-6 short miles to Kailua where there are many shops and restaurants. Although the home is located in Waimanalo, a very small town, it still has a nice grocery store (Shima's), fish market, and right around the corner from the house is a great little place to eat, "Fresh Steak and Shrimp", which serves good food (breakfast, lunch and dinner) at good prices.
We chose this VRBO because we wanted a two bedroom/two bathroom place, and every rental on the beach was twice the price. For the price, and just a short walk to the beach, it is a good vacation place!

Thank you for a week in paradise

  • 5 of 5
(At the request of the owner, Skye, I am posting here what I wrote in the guestbook/journal for the house. I think this says it all. [Please excuse the length of this post. There was a lot for which I wanted to express my gratitude.])

Saturday, August 31, 7:30 a.m.

We just returned to Ocean Song House from the beach,
where we watched the sun nuzzle its way into the sky through clouds of a dozen textures that it painted peach and gold and pink.

As we prepare to say aloha to Skye and her house, I'm taking a little time to write here in the OceanSong journal.

We are a family of four from Normal, Illinois, and this is our first time visiting Hawaii. We've spent a week exploring--and falling in love with--Oahu, and we've seen many gorgeous and fascinating places. But nowhere else exerts the same tug on our hearts as the beach at access point 100-E, just a few steps down Hilu Street from Ocean Song House.

The house itself is lovely, perfect for a family of four. We've basked in the bouquet of Skye's garden (where yesterday we watched a six inch long snail slide across the lawn) and eaten our meals together here at the table on the deck, cooled by the trade winds. We love to drink "Arnold Palmers" (half iced tea, half lemonade) and we have found a new flavor by adding some of Skye's lemon/limes to our drinks. The cliffs above Waimanalo have enchanted us.

Everywhere we've traveled on Oahu this week, people have congratulated us on choosing Waimanalo as our temporary home. We feel lucky and blessed to have spent this week--in part a celebration of Julie's and my 24th wedding anniversary--at Ocean Song House, under Skye's care.

Like all the other guests who have written in this book, we have been marked by our time in Hawaii and will never forget its magic.

Mahalo. Aloha.
