Overview

Oahu 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 with air conditioning, 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. For those of you who dream of falling asleep to the sound of the ocean waves, our delicious trade winds usually keep the bedroom very comfortable, so you can fall asleep with the windows open. The room is also equipped with ac for the occasional extra hot summer night.

The second bedroom has an extremely comfortable plush queen mattress, and is also equipped with air conditioning.

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!

Could Not Have Been Better

  • 5 of 5

Location, Value, and particularly Terrific Reviews, were the reason we picked Skye's "Ocean Song House" for our 1 year return to Oahu to celebrate the one year anniversary (????) of the June 22, 2015 Tornado that hit our town destroying 80 homes and damaging over 800 while we had just arrived in Kailua for the final 5 nights of our three island Hawaiian vacation. Unfortunately, our home was one that was destroyed in the storm and we had to immediately fly home to Illinois to begin the year long process of "save what you can", demolish, and rebuild. What a great idea to return to the same area on the same day one year later. That's what we thought until we were an hour away from the exact time and day when weather reports from our hometown indicated it was under a Tornado Warning. Then we started getting texts that the sirens were going off and our sons, dog, and neighbors were in our newly built basement. Luckily the tornados bypassed the town and our tempt of fate proved positive. We continued our great adventure, with thanks to some of Skye's recommendations.

Climbed Diamond Head, climbed up to Moana Falls, and climbed to the Lighthouse near Waimanalo. Did Pearl Harbor, North Shore (sea turtles), Dole Plantation, Punchbowl Cemetary, Iolani Palace, and other sights. Ate at some great locations with Buzz's Original Streakhouse being our favorite. The glazed pork chop was terrific and the service matched it. Our two bedroom beach house was everything we expected. 2 minute walk to the uncrowded beach in a very quiet neighborhood. A great base for all our explorations. Skye was the best host and understandably very proud of her property and the neighborhood she is in. We probably will not be coming back to Oahu next June 22nd but we will be making our fifth trip back to Hawaii in the near future. Thanks, Skye for this wonderful, but unusual vacation, and for sharing Ocean Song House with us. The Roselands and the Baileys

Amazing Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Hawaii and we are glad we found this fantastic beachside cottage! Skye greeted us when we arrived and gave us helpful recommendations based on the things we wanted to do while in Oahu. It was so nice to have the beach a minute away with everything we needed to enjoy it. Our kids ages 9 & 11 spent hours at the beach with the boogie boards while we relaxed on the sand. It was nice to have plenty to do when we wanted a break from the expensive touristy destinations. We would definitely recommend this as a fantastic option for families!

Great family spot-two minute walk to paradise

  • 5 of 5

Skye was a generous and gracious guest. Her beach home is a two minute walk from one of the most gorgeous beaches on the whole island. This part of the island has a more local feel than some of the other popular tourist spots. Great local grocery, coffee shop, and food just down the road. The home had everything we needed from beach towels to a bbq, a pantry/fridge stocked with condiments to beach chairs and boogie boards, an outdoor shower for rinsing off all that fun sand to AC in the bedrooms. With bringing along two little ones, having two bathrooms was a major plus. The home was clean and well maintained. I would definitely recommend this property to friends and family.

Darling cottage, great location, wonderful hostess!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a great five days at Skye's cottage, everything as described by previous reviews. We had a perfect stay and will definitely be back. One small note: there was constant hum outside the cottage's master bedroom window (not related out our air conditioner, which we didn't need during our stay)...I couldn't ever figure out what it was though...possibly the main house air conditioner? The neighbor's hot tub? Hmmmm. Although it didn't bother my husband, I did need to sleep with earplugs. Thanks for being a thoughtful, thorough hostess, Skye - and we are officially smitten with Oahu!

Amazing location, great property, very helpful host!

  • 5 of 5

This house was a great place to stay for us and our 7 and 10 year olds. Skye is a very helpful hostess and made sure we had a proper introduction to the area and everything we needed. The location is seriously close to the best beach on Oahu. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!

Amazing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The Ocean Song Beach House was wonderful! It is beautifully decorated - and very clean. It is very private and quiet. We all slept so soundly! We had everything we needed for the beach - mats, chairs, umbrella, ice chests, and even boogie boards! The beach is a very short walk from the house. The local restaurants are within walking distance. Skye was an excellent host. We love this part of Oahu - the mountains and the beach. To be able to stay so close to one of the most amazing uncrowded beaches in the world was such an awesome experience. I would definitely recommend this house and we can't wait to go back!
