Plus just 20-minutes to Honolulu, 30-minutes to Waikiki and Ala Moana Mall, 35-minutes to Pearl Harbor and 45-minutes to the North Shore for world class surfing! This is truly a special location...
The home was purchased by David Cooke in 2012. He lived in Waimanalo full-time for seven years renting another house and immediately fell in love with the beach, majestic mountain views, local Hawaiian town living, absence of hotels and crowds, the most amazing drive along the coast into Honolulu and Waikiki, and super location for getting to wherever he wanted to go and see and do! He always wondered who lived in that big beautiful pink estate next to one of the beach parks and it's a dream come true that he actually purchase it. Because of family, he cannot live at the estate full time so he decided to make it available for rental to others that will respect the property and enjoy all that it has to offer.
The home has been completely renovated! Included in the renovations is an elevator. The property is huge, very well kept, It has a relaxing Hawaiian feel with coral and natural stone floors, large windows with incredible Ocean and mountain views everywhere, It has 6 bedrooms in the main house and 3 more bedrooms in the attached guest house and a gated courtyard with plenty of private parking. If 5 or 6 couples, or a large family wants a place that is big enough to accommodate them, very well kept, filled with amenities, great location, awesome views and beach, but doesn't want to be split up in a hotel in the tourist trap, sharing the pools and other amenities with lots of others, this is one of the only properties around this size and in this condition. The location is awesome, right on the Ocean, mountain backdrop just minutes drive from so many attractions...

My family and I had the pleasure to stay here for two weeks. After visiting Oahu for nearly half a dozen times, this was by far the best experience I have had thus far. We had 6 adults, 3 children, a toddler, and two infants vacationing with us and every single need was met for all age groups.
Once we landed, the VP of the residence met us at the airport with car seats and a booster seat for the children to put in our rentals so we would not have to rent them from the car rental company.
Upon arrival the kitchen was completely stocked with our customized grocery list that we had requested prior to our arrival. We only made one trip to the grocery store our entire stay and that was only to let the children pick out snacks of their choosing.
Gilles, the property manager, went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we wanted or could possibly need.
I could never describe the absolutely breathtaking views from every bedroom in this home. Crystal blue waters in front of you and beautiful volcanic mountains to the rear is nothing that I have ever experienced even with this being my 5th trip to Oahu.
One of my families favorite things was the pool and slide. Upon arrival that was one of the first things we did was "test the pool". The kids immediately went down the slide into the pool and so I thought I would go down one time just to say I did it, and afterwards, my husband and I went down it nearly a dozen times every day. It was so fun and defiantly not "just for kids".
As far as activities, the home owner booked everything we asked for and more. We went to Chief's Luau which was only a 3 minute drive away. We also had a private luau complete with any and all local Hawaiian cuisine you could dream about. This was a highlight that the adults and kids will never forget! The fire dancer was amazing and interacted with the kids as much as the adults.
Our drive to Honolulu and Waikiki was only about 35 minutes and very convenient. The majority of the drive was along beautiful scenic highway where we stopped several times for pictures.
Makapuu Lighthouse, which is about a 3 minute drive from the home, is about a 2 mile hike that I would highly recommend. It was so clear the morning we hiked that we were able to see the island of Moloka'i and also West Maui in the distance.
I can not wait for our next trip back!
Simply amazing, everything you could want or need is furnished. The home and the views are breathtakingly beautiful. My family and I had a wonderful vacation, and all the amenities you could possibly need. I have 3 small grandchildren, and Gilles, the property manager made sure all the safety features were installed before we arrived. The children had everything they needed, from highchairs, pac & plays, baby monitors, toys, anything you could imagine. The adults also had everything we needed, for fun in the sun, body boards, snorkel equipment, kayaks, the list just goes on and on. The concierge service was outstanding, everything we wanted to experience, and asked for them to book, was taken care of. On one of our outings, (Star of Honolulu Dinner Cruise) we had a babysitter come in and watch the small children while we were away. This by far has been the most stress free vacation ever!!! Can't wait to return!
This was a vacation to celebrate retirement with immediate and extended family. We had a total of 22 including children and couldn't have been more comfortable! The house is amazing, the owner greeted us and could not have been more accommodating. The house was beautiful and spotless! We had an amazing time. Thanks so much for allowing us to make lifetime memories! The Johnson Family, Chesapeake, Virginia
From the gated entrance to the gate to the beach we had everything we needed. As a family of 20, ranging in age from 5 months to 70, the very large living area and lanei with a fantastic view of the ocean gave us the space to interact with everyone. The children loved the pool with a slide and the spa - another great gathering area. Plenty of room for everyone. The owner had just done some major renovations making the house quite beautiful but still very homey. Can't say enough about the kitchens. Again very well equipment. Even the chef we brought in one evening for a special birthday party was pleased. The property manager was there to greet us and walk us through the house. He even had the two high chairs we had requested for our two newest grandchildren there and ready for use. He was always just a phone call away for that quick question and stopped by a few times to just check up on us. For shopping Waimanalo was only 20 minutes away with a Whole Foods and a Target. And just five minutes down the road was a co-op with lots of fresh local food too. It was very easy to get anywhere for sight seeing. A little traffic now and then but we made it for shave ice on the North Shore in about 40 minutes. We would highly recommend this lovely home to anyone. It really did live up to what we saw and read in the listing. CR
This was the second time we have stayed there because this house is spectacular. Great location, amenities, and quick service whenever a question or problem come up. Internet speed was top notch, which is often the problem at hotels and other rental homes.
Amazing home, astounding views both front and rear of house. Well appointed, lots of art and attention to fine detail throughout the house, superb kitchen and eating areas (multiple eating areas!), clean and spotless throughout the home. Fresh bathrooms and bedrooms, great linens, a sparkling pool and hot tub and manicured lawn. White sand beach, great snorkeling and paddle board area.
You won’t go wrong here other than you will need to bring all your family and will still regret some didn’t make it. We travel often and this is one of the nicest places we have stayed.
I love this location! On one of Hawaii's best beaches where Magnum PI (and other shows) were filmed, the beach has no hotels so is not crowded with tourists like Waikiki, but all within 10 minutes are breathtaking coastal drive with Sea Life Park, Chief's Luau, Golf Course, Makapu'u Lighthouse Trail (whale-watching), Oceanic Institute, Sandy Beach, Hanauma Bay (Snorkeling), Blowhole and arrive in Hawaii Kai with shopping, restaurants, movie theater, grocery stores and all sorts of activities including para-sailing, jet skiing, deep sea fishing, boating, cruises, hang-gliding, scuba-diving, and more! Within 10 minute drive in the other direction are Waimanalo Bellows beach park, another golf course, horseback riding, a polo field, Pali Lookout (historical Hawaiian battleground) and Kailua with lots of shops, restaurants, grocery stores, beaches, etc.. Waimanalo is a local Hawaiian town free of Hotels but only 30-45 minutes of scenic drive to Pearl Harbor, Honolulu and Waikiki. I always like to escape the tourist trap areas but be close to everything I want to do and see. Waimanalo is one of Hawaii's best-kept secrets with awesome beach, great location, less congestion, authentic Hawaiian town feel and lots of local people, and incredible ocean and lava formed mountain views everywhere!
