About the area

The Waimanalo Beach Lots is a cozy little neighborhood located right along the Forbes ranked #1 beach. Even being a little town you still have some great amenities just around the corner. Waimanalo Café, Serg's Mexican Food, Ono Steak and Shrimp, Ai Love Nalo, and McDonalds are all within walking distance from the house. There's also Waimanalo Market Co-op which is a great place to pick up some local produce or gifts. There's also Bobby's Market, 7-11 (with a gas station), and Shimas Market just down the road as well. Waimanalo Beach lots is a great location to get away from the hustle and bustle without being in the middle of no where. You can still get to Costco within 15 minutes. Kailua town is also a 10 minute drive away for any other needs. There you'll find a Target, Safeway, Castle Hospital and several other shops, restaurants, banks, etc. Waimanalo all of the amenities without all of the hassle!

We live on the island but rented this wonderful beach house while my parents were visiting. Had a wonderful time at the beach and in the house. Can't thank the owners enough!

Owner's reply: Thank you. Glad you enjoyed your StayCation

We loved our stay, took a family of 8 there for a week and it was well worth the money! Kid friendly, short hop skip and jump to the beautiful beach, everything available for your use! Will definitely rent again with a big group! Recommend to everyone! The owners were very friendly, and informational. Answered questions and very nice to talk to. Can't wait to go back!

“Great place to stay!”

We had a wonderful stay here! Clean and secure. The beach was awesome and very nice! We had one windy day there and we did loose power at the house for a day, not a big problem though. Nice breeze kept the house very cool and owners are super friendly and nice! We were there 8 nights and we didn't see one roach the whole time we were there, which is pretty impressive, considering that every house has roaches in Hawaii, no matter where you live. House is close to town and very nice beaches.

“great location!!”

05/29/09 Positive My family enjoyed staying at the house on Ehukai St. It was convenient to walk to the beach, especially on our wedding date with Captain Howie. We had a rental car but the family also used The Bus to visit Kailua or Sea Life Park. The local take-out shop Keneke's is a quirky favorite with locals and tourists.

05/10/09 Positive It was a pleasure to stay at the house. The beach was great and the location super. We're hoping to stay there again soon! Thanks Mark & Scott (our son had lots of fun)!

04/15/09 Positive Nice house, friendly owner and brother/manager,
good location. We used the boogie boards, beach
mats and beach towels.
Thanks Mark!
Marc Levine, SF, Ca

02/04/09 Positive This place was great for our 2-adult couple 10 day stay. The beach was only a block or 2 away and it was the nicest beach we found on the entire island...and we traveled the entire island. We cooked most of our dinners at "home" and the kitchen was well stocked with dishes, pots and pans, and small appliances. We played during the day and never needed to rent any equipment because it was all there for our unlimited use at no charge (snorkles, masks, boogie boards, etc.) The place was clean and very comfortable, and the hot tub was nice too! The location was very nice. Besides the beach (mentioned above), it was close to everything else we wanted to see and far enough from Waikiki and Honolulu to avoid much of the traffic. We definitely recommend this place to groups of 2 or more, including folks traveling with kids. Aloha and mahalo.

08/14/08 Positive The house was clean, comfortable, and well appointed for a relaxed stay. The beach just down the street is beautiful and not crowded at all, and great for swimming and boogie boarding.
Waimanalo is quiet and friendly -- nice!
Scott Mullin, San Antonio Texas

06/23/08 Positive Nice place to get away from it all... Walking distance from the best beach on the island. We went to 4 different beaches and ended up back at this beach each night. Still close enough to drive to all the tourist spots. Mark was a great host, allowing us to use boogie boards, snorkel equipment, whatever we needed. Thanks, Mark...

05/27/08 Positive The house was awesome. Thanks for the hospitality!!!!!! The house worked out awesome for our families too! Everyone was comfortable. It was close to the beach and everything we needed was close by. Thanks again, and we'll definitely be back sometime :)

beautiful beach. The quiet
neighborhood, cool breezes, and lovely
beach made our experience most
Judy Latham, Nashville, Tennessee

05/13/08 Positive This is a nice place with all the amenities such as
boogey boards, surf boards etc we wanted. Loved to
be able to walk down to a great beach and also hear
the waves at night. The people are very friendly.

03/20/08 Positive Good facilities, loved the location, close to a very nice beach. All gear was there for personal use which was an excellent add on.
Thank you so much for helping make our vacation so enjoyable.

02/26/08 Positive This was our first holiday to the island. We had a great time. The scenery is one that you can close your eyes today and the images are there. Thank you Mark & Scott for making our 2 week vacation a very comfortable one.The house was the perfect way to go everything we needed, loved the blender (haha), the beach in my opinion was the nicest on the island, not crowded and only a block away. I would certainly recommend your place to anyone visiting the island. Will send you some photos. We enjoyed your company and hope someday we will get to come back with our kids. Mahola, Steve & Pat

12/25/07 Positive A nice house in a quiet neighborhood near the beach. We enjoyed walking down to Waimanalo beach and playing in the surf. There was plenty of room for our whole family.
Ben Peart, Redmond, WA

10/14/07 Positive We had a wonderful vacation at Mark's place. Very comfortable and easy access to the beach. We loved this side of the Island. Normally we stay near Wakiki. This was much more laid back and the locals were awesome. We loved our vacation. Sorry it had to end.
Thanks, Mark for a great place to live for a week!

07/19/07 Positive We really enjoyed staying in the house on Waimanalo. It was clean, comfortable and had all the amenities you need. It was in a ideal location and the beach was quiet with great waves!
Carla, Phoenix, Arizona

07/06/07 Positive This was our first trip to Hawaii and it was one of the best vacations our family has ever had. The house was perfect for us and so close to the beach! It was perfect as far as a nice place to relax in a home rather than a hotel, yet so close to the tourist things we wanted to see such as Pearl Harbor and Diamond Head. You will never see water more blue and warm as on Waimanalo beach and so secluded. Having suggestions of "local" places to eat was great too! We will be back!

04/11/07 Positive Had a really wonderful time on Oahu. The house was the perfect spot for a main base of operations. We saved a ton of money not having to eat out and using the full kitchen and BBQ. The beach was super good and so close to your place. The neighborhood it's in is really safe and the neighbors were super friendly. I would reccomend Mark's place for a great place to stay on Vacation.

04/07/07 Positive We really enjoyed our stay at this house, it was everything we expected. We would stay here again if we are ever back in Oahu. Comfortable for our family of five.

Thanks Mark

02/22/07 Positive What a week!!! What a Place!! What a Beach!!! What a Great Value!! We stayed in Beautiful Waimanalo for a week. The house worked great for 2 couples. It was nice to be off of the beaten path and I felt very safe there. Mark and his brother Scott are wonderful hosts and were very attentive to our needs. We really enjoyed the beach and the Boogie Boards. The waves were fantastic and not a rock in the sand to hurt your foot. We saw only a few people on the beach and all were very friendly. We found groceries close by as well as restraunts. The Barbeque was awsome. Although there was no laundry, we hung our suits and towels on the lanai and they were ready the next day. Lots of creature comforts here, even a pet fish. You can even drink the tap water. It was a good place to get away and if I go back to Hawaii, or know anyone going I would stay here again!!! Thanks Mark and Scott for you Hospitality!!!

02/21/07 Positive What an amazing place. We live on the island and came to this house to escape for a week. It suited our needs perfectly and it was nice to have a kitchen with everything in it. The beach is literally one of the nicest on the Oahu and we made good use of all the toys. I have lived here for my whole life and never realized how beautiful the Waimanalo area was. Such a great spot to escape to. Thank You Mark Mahalo & Aloha,

11/16/06 Positive My family stayed in your home for a week. We were very impressed by you homes ammenties and location to everything on the island of Oahu. It is a great floor plan to have a nice family or romantic getaway. We took advantage of the discounts and did the Luau and Dolphin Excursion A+++.

We will never forget this wonderful vacation.

11/05/06 Positive 'Nalo was for sure off the tourist traps of Waikiki.Enjoyed the neat and tidy house.Glad for the winds, we didn't have to use the room AC at all.It would be nice to have a dishwasher and washer/dryer.Beds & futons were clean and comfy.Wireless/TV were a plus for the down/rest times.
Thelma L., Lincoln, CA

07/21/06 Positive We had a great stay at your Waimanalo Rental. It really met all our needs for a family of 4. The house was decent size, plenty of sleeping areas, the beach was prestine and our morning walks & jog's on the beach were wonderful, afternoon boogie boarding was good too. The weather was great a little rain but loved it just the same. Sharks Cove for snorkeling on North Shore was far better than Hanauma Bay & well worth the drive(I did both).Drove around the island a few times, soo much beauty to see.... Waikiki was crazy! Hard to find parking unless your staying in a hotel there, best advise: park over by the zoo it's free and you can play all day on the beach, great shopping too. The surfing is way too crowded in Waikiki unless you move way down the beach away from all the action. Thanks Mark for all your help & info.
Loved Oahu & can't wait to do it again!

07/06/06 Positive Mark, The house was more than what I expected - it was a home away from home - accommodations and the area were excellent - the best part walking to the beach! I would highly recommend your place! Thanks from my Dad and myself!
Jennie Magdaleno, Compton, CA

06/26/06 Positive for the price, you could not ask for anything more. we stayed 8days for $2100. the private white sandy beach is about 100yds walk. the beautiful waimanalo condo was spacious, clean, and homie. the area was safe. less than a 30min drive to waikiki/honolulu. we would definitely rent this condo again!!!

04/02/06 Positive My wife and I stayed at the house with another couple and we found it to be just like home, except much closer to a nice beach! We were really impressed with all the extras (surfboards, cooler, beach mats, snorkeling gear, etc.). The beach was beautiful, and with so few people on it, we basically had it all to ourselves. We suggest dinner at Buzz's in Lanikai, and burgers at the Shack in Kailua.

03/06/06 Positive Mark, you were a great host and the property was outstanding.
Our family really enjoyed the proximity to your beautiful beach and all the other beaches just up and down the coast.

01/18/06 Positive Mark, Thank you so much for a wonderful
vacation for my whole family. The accomodations were perfect and the water equipment the best. Also thank you for arranging the whale,turtle and dolphin trip. We still can not stop talking about swimming with the dolphins. Thank you so much for making this the best trip to Hawaii we have ever taken.
Deborah P, Milwaukee, WI

01/18/06 Positive The accommodations were great and location could not have been any better. There is nothing like walking to an empty beach every morning and having good surfing just down the road.
