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.

Better than we imagined!

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.

Fantastic Experience

  • Submitted: Dec 28, 2013
  • Stayed: Nov 2013
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 Spirit!

Dear Skye,
Thank you for being such a warm, gracious and accommodating host.
You really personify the "Aloha Spirit" that I had heard so much about but had never encountered until this trip.

Thank you for opening your home up to us.
We really wish we didn't have to leave---
Oahu is so gorgeous and the week has gone by too quickly.
This trip and your home was exactly what was needed to de-stress and re-charge.
Thanks for everything and hope to be back soon!

This has been the best week I could have asked for! We stumbled upon Ocean~Song by accident, pure luck, and we are oh so grateful.
Skye, your warm aloha welcomed us to some of the happiest, most carefree days of the summer.

With any luck, we'll be back.
Much mahalo!

Family treasures

  • Submitted: Dec 23, 2013

"Let us be in the present," my son Dylan has intoned gently, here and there, as we have soaked up our long week here on Oahu. Perhaps this is the greatest gift of this breathtaking island and of the Ocean~Song Beach House, our momentary home.
Our stay here has marked, as Bob observed, our 24th wedding anniversary. It also punctuates our daughter Rachel's departure for college. It is perhaps the last trip as a family "with children."
Surely, new adventures beckon. And our entry into this next phase of family life. perhaps bittersweet, could not be more gloriously accompanied than by Skye's warm hospitality, her gentle beach getaway, the iron trees and sand crabs, the aqua waters and brilliant salmon sunrises of Waimanalo.
What of a place where one's greatest challenge is deciding whether to take in the green-kissed mountains to one's right or the dancing sparkle of waves to the left. Stars at night or sleeping in the amazingly scented breeze? Snorkeling or hiking or surfing or strolling the white sands?

Mahalo, Skye. Aloha.

Blissful Home~~~

  • Submitted: Dec 23, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
Dear Skye,
I don't believe I can add much to what Ashley wrote, but I too have enjoyed our second family stay in your wonderful beach house immensely. First in your lovely cottage, and now in "Ocean~Song."
I will miss the spectacular sunrises, which have amazed me, the night owls, and waking up early each morning.
Our family hikes, runs, excursions, swims, and moonlight walks are all new memories we have made and will always treasure.
Thank you for sharing your blissful home, your kind heart, and your loving cats with us.

Until we meet again...
Mahalo and aloha.

Wonderful Memories!

  • Submitted: Dec 23, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
Dear Skye,
Thank you so much for giving us an amazing opportunity to stay in such a beautiful place. Returning to Waimanalo with my family brought back so many wonderful memories from our time here two years ago, and allowed us to build on those memories and create new ones. I really cherish any time I get to spend with my family before I leave for college---thank you for providing us with a place to stay and enjoy each other's company.
The Ocean~Song Beach House is simply magical. Waking up in the mornings to sunlight pouring through the windows, a gentle breeze rolling through the room, and the beautiful melodies of tropical birds filling the entire house was absolutely poetic. A beautiful way to "rise and shine."
This vacation my family enjoyed various hikes and runs on trails, eating delicious foods, trying tropical drinks, but most of all, visiting the beach right down the street from here. There is something about that beach that is just so inviting and welcoming. You live in an amazing place, Skye. Thank you for sharing it with us!
Just like this beach house, you are a wonderful, peaceful and amazing person. I was honored to have met you when we first visited and was very happy to see you again this time.
I love everything here: the people, the beaches, the scenery, and especially the cats! I had a wonderful time here with my family.
Hopefully we will return again, and maybe I'll bring my family in the future when I'm older!

Very Nice Place

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Nov 13, 2013
  • Stayed: Nov 2013
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!
