About Jessi Whigham
The home was purchased by David Cooke in 2012. He lived in Waimanalo full-time for seven years and 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! Why Waimanalo: 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... The Unique Benefits at this House: Elevator, Private Pool, Hot Tub and Water Slide. Amazing location Beachfront Lots of entertainment for a stormy day. Back-up generator (don't let a power outage interrupt your plans) Lots of safety gates and accessories for children. Family and belongings are safe with our simple to use state of the art security system. Most doors are combination locks eliminating the need to keep up with keys. 3 minutes from Sea Life Park and Chief's Luau. Property manager less than a mile away to address any needs or concerns. Heated pool AC in all 9 bedrooms and guest wing. Snorkel gear, boogy and paddle boards, ocean kayaks, beach toys, chairs, umbrellas, etc provided free.

The house is amazing. Not the best neighborhood.
We had a toddler in the family and the owners baby-proofed the whole place and we all had a delightful stay. The rooms are amazing and the yard and ocean access are fantastic. The public park next to us was a bit loud but really not invasive.
We had several catered dinners that were perfect and a terrific luau show on our lawn.
The experience was wonderful!! This spot is great for large family groups and carefree for toddlers.
The house was spotless and the beach toys were great. Snorkeling, kayaks and beach chairs were all well-kept and easy to use.
The elevator allowed a guest with a wheelchair and made the place accessible.
Spectacular views everywhere you look!
We had all our adult Children and Grandchildren at this lovely home for 8 nights. The views where so beautiful! The snorkeling was great even on stormy days due to it's location ( protected by an outer reef). Just down the beach is a perfect wading area for toddlers. Of course it was difficult to tear ourselves away from the pool and slide area. They had all the fun toys for pool and beach, plus snorkel gear, beach chairs, umbrellas etc.
The home itself was so roomy all 16 of us had plenty of room to stretch out and the game room was the best.
We had Jen from Barre Kailue come 4 of the days for a great ocean side workout. We would return to this property in a heart beat!
Very nice home.
House was wonderful. Lots of room and very well kept. Chef Mike did a wonderful job for us the entire stay. Only drawback is you're right next to a park on the beach that is busy 24/7. Park was very loud at night and we had loud music playing 4 nights of our stay until the wee hours of the morning and several of the mornings got very loud around sunrise. With that said, The house itself was GREAT.
Thank you for your nice review! We regret you encountered some noise from the small, local beach park, as that is a rare occurrence. Typically the park is a place for families to quietly enjoy and is closed by 10 pm. We are very glad that the rest of your stay was excellent.
Several families stayed for one week at this property. It was an amazing time. Easy gathering for all the families with plenty of room. The pool, pool slide, and hot tub were great retreats for adults and kids after stepping through the front gate into the ocean for great snorkeling. The amenities are too numerous to count. Top notch kitchen appliances, beverage fridges and ice makers on every level. Pool and ocean gear is plentiful. No reason to leave the estate!
Family of 16 Vacation
Beautiful!! Beautiful!! Great house, plenty of space for everyone to spread out. Loved the Pool and being able to walk out back gate right into the ocean!! Public beach next door but was so great to see families using it.
We recently spent our spring break in this amazing property. Our group came from Texas with our extended family of three generations including children of all ages. This home has it all and is so luxuriously appointed. You will not find another property like it.
The views from this home don't even look real. The beach is so pristine and the waters are gentle and perfect for children to play in. We loved to take daily kayak rides and to snorkel in the clear water. We even saw sea turtles not far from shore!
The kids loved the the pool and water slide as well as the private grassy yard and the game room. There was so much to do! The bedrooms were comfortable and the open living room and kitchen area were exquisite. Thank you so much for making our week the trip of a lifetime!
Thank you so much Lindsey for your kind words. It was our pleasure to have you and your family stay with us and we hope you return soon! Warmest Mahalo, Jessi
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!
