Our Waimanalo Beach Home has beach access to a beautiful six mile long white sand beach, the longest stretch of sandy shoreline on O`ahu, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

Waimanalo Beach offers the most amazing sunrises with an inspiring start to each day.

Oahu's best keep secret is the town of Waimanalo. It is one of the only places on Oahu where you can get away from the tourist mania, yet still be so close to so many great activities.

Kailua, Lanikai and Hawaii Kai are just 10 minutes away, with fine dining, shopping, cinema and more.

This is your own piece of paradise, and whether it is a honeymoon, adventure, or family holiday, it has it all. Facilities include a fully equipped kitchen, TV, DVD Player, VCR, a lanai with a gas grill, a large beautifully landscaped tropical yard with an outdoor cedar sauna and jacuzzi to relax in at the end of the day, there is also a jungle gym and swing set if you have kids! The house has an outdoor hot and cold shower for an easy return to the house from the beach.

If you are looking to experience 'true Hawaii' then our place is for you. We are located in an area which the Hawaiians refer to as 'God's Country'

About Chris Laird

I grew up in Wamanalo and raised my 3 children there as well. Our family enjoys Surfing, Kayaking, Boogie Boarding, Sailing, Fishing and long walks on the beach, we love and respect the ocean and we hope you and your family will enjoy this beautiful home as much as we do!

Chris Laird purchased this house in 1998

Why Chris Laird chose Oahu

I grew up in Waimanalo and my family and I love the community and the ability to get away from the city and enjoy the peacefulness of the countryside, unwind on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world and still be minutes away from great restaurants, shopping, the cinema and all major Hawaii attractions.

What makes this house unique

The house is steps away from one of the most pristine beaches in the world, being on the East side of the island, you can see the most amazing sunrises! The house is set on a large property in a tropical setting. It has a hot tub and cedar sauna outside, a large covered lanai with a gas grill, swings and jungle gym in the yard and outdoor showers to use after the beach! It is the perfect spot for taking long walks on miles of white sand beach, surfing, kayaking, paddling, snorkeling, boogie boarding, etc., the Ocean is free of coral and rock with crystal clear swimming. It is a very kid-friendly house, yard, neighborhood and beach.

My wife and I recently planned and hosted the wedding for our daughter in Honolulu. We did a great deal of planning and researching to ensure the day was perfect. We decided to try HomeAway for our place to stay. I sent a handful of messages to several homeowners explaining our needs and desires. Chris not olny replied immediatly but also took the time and energy to call me personally. It did not take long for us to decide to rent his beautiful home on Waimanalo Beech. This house was exactly what we hoped for. The house has three bedrooms all with king size beds. All of which ave very comfortable. In addition there are two day beds in the family room. The home had EVERYTHING we needed and a lot we did not. The living area is very nicely appointed and adequate for large families. We had eight people in our party and never felt cramped. I must admit we spent most of our time on the front porch enjoying the yard and Hawaii life. The beech is beautiful and only a short walk from the home. This allowed us to enjoy the beech and feel seculded when we were not. The area is perfect. Just a short drive to anything one might need.. stores, food, and shops. Only 30 mins to Waikiki beech or the airport. Although we did not use them this home has a hot tub and sauna, and many games and activities for children.As many other reviews stated the area has a few chickens and yes a rooster or two. This manner of waking was delightful for me. Not something I would complain about. I would much rather wake to that sound than traffic or people. My family had no issues with Haehay.. yes they named the rooster.. lol..

Chris and his family have made sure that all thier guests have everything they made need or require. This includes all kitchen utensils and bath towels. Beech towels and toys are abundant. We did use the boogie boards a few times and had a blast. The home itself is nicely decorated and very fucntional. The shower in the Master bedroom is older but still did as it intended. The living area and kitchen looks to have been renovated and felt very comfortable. The only room to have an AC is the Master bedroom. Which again we never used. The home has good air flow and was never uncomfortable even when temps reached above 80 degrees. Chris was always available but not present. He allowed us to enjoy our time in the home without feeling like we were guests. His directions and check-in procedures were perfect. Never once did we need to reach out or complain. PERFECT!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

This property is located away from the business of tourism, (what we wanted). We loved the beach, (which felt very private) and the house had everything including, snorkel gear, boogy boards, beach chairs and even a wagon to carry all of our things.

Great outdoor space, proximity to beach, beach gear

  • 4 of 5

Chris was helpful and friendly and we appreciate the rental! The kids had a great time playing in the play set, zip line, croquet and ping pong table. There is plenty of beach gear, chairs, snorkels, towels etc.. The hot tub was also a nice end to the day.

The inside cools off at night time and the breezes helped keep it cool even in the rooms without AC.

There were very tiny ants in the bathrooms and kitchen and traps for cockroaches around the kitchen. We only saw 1 roach and 1 gecko (which we were happy to see as the geckos apparently eat bugs). The kitchen has been nicely redone but the master bathroom could use some work as the shower is outdated and the tiles and grout need repairing. We used the outdoor shower a lot which was great but a small privacy barrier would make it even more useful! It was great to have laundry access (washer, dryer and clothes line). Small things like plenty of movies (in case of rain), wifi, extra soft blankets and a stack of beach towels were all really appreciated! Driveway gate with remote control was also great for privacy and convenience. Big table on front lanai was great in the evenings for hanging out after dinner for drinks and board games.

Fantastic Property, best beach in the world

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with my family of 8 with room to spare. The home is spacious and immaculate, and the very private and secure yard was a perfect area for my 2 year old daughter to run, play and be 'free'! Chris was extremely accommodating; we had everything we needed. The outdoor shower was fantastic, we used it a lot! The gorgeous beach was a very short, pleasant walk down the street. We have stayed in Waikiki several times, but never again. Peaceful Waimanalo is much more our style and this house was perfect! We will definitely be back to this property again!

Sweet Property & Location

  • 5 of 5

Awesome Christmas vacation homebase for our family of 8! The spacious, well appointed house & big, private lushly landscaped yard were great & had a good mix of communal & private space. We made good use of the hot tub & sauna when the winds picked up & clouds rolled in. The outdoor shower (with hot water) was ideal for post beach rinses. Our teenage kids appreciated the selection of body boards as the surf was decent sized and they were up for dawn patrol every morning. After venturing out to Waikiki, Kailua, & the North Shore, we all agreed that Waimanalo beach was the best of them all and far less crowded. Chris, the owner, was super helpful & stopped by to check in on us a couple days into the trip. All in all, we loved the place as well as the beauty & chill vibe of Waimanalo.

A lot of people love to take their kids to Sea Life Park - which is only about 5 minutes or less away by car. Also, the Makapu'u Trail hike is only about 5 minutes away by car as well - it is a great hike up a new paved road that offers scenic views and during the season - excellent whale watching!
