Oahu: Waimanalo<< Back To Maui
No Properties Listed
Waimanalo is a small residential community on Oahu’s beautiful southeast shore. Backed by the incredible Ko’olau mountain range and situated on some of the windward side’s best beaches, this sleepy town is one of the island’s quieter areas and the perfect destination to unwind and disconnect. The beauty of this community is that there are no hotels to take away from its laid back feel. There are some beautiful luxury vacation rental properties in Waimanalo though, so this town is still an option for those hoping to stay here.
Things to Do
Golfers in staying in Waimanalo will enjoy the 18-hole Olomano Links golf course with its rolling hills, water hazards, cavernous sand traps and other unique challenges. Sea Life Park is a popular attraction for guests staying at one of Waimanalo’s vacation rental homes. Home to a variety of Hawaii’s marine life, the park provides an opportunity for visitors to swim with rays, dolphins, sea lions and even reef sharks. There are also several entertaining shows and educational presentations throughout the day. With a summit that tops out at 3150 feet above sea level, hiking the trails of the Ko’olau Mountains takes you through the tropical flora and fauna that Hawaii is known for and provides a panoramic view of the coastline once you reach the top. If you’ve never seen a match before, why not head over to the Waimanalo Polo Field to see what the game is all about? Our luxury vacation rental properties in Waimanalo are just 30 minutes from Honolulu making it easy to access all of its attractions. For an up close look at Hawaii’s royal past, visit the Iolani Palace. The only royal palace to have ever stood on US soil, Iolani is ripe with history and filled with artifacts from the opulent lifestyle of Hawaii’s royalty. Honolulu is also home to Oahu’s vibrant arts and culture scene with Chinatown’s many galleries. The Honolulu Museum of Art hosts a one of the island’s best parties each month. Complete with music, cocktails, and great art, we highly recommend ARTafterDark.
Our Waimanalo luxury vacation rental properties are located in close proximity to several area beaches. Waimanalo Beach Park is home to the longest uninterrupted stretch of beach on Oahu making it perfect for a long leisurely stroll along the water. With full facilities and a lifeguard on-duty, this is a great place for a full day and you’ll often see families picnicking in the park. There is very little traffic here during the week, but this beach can become quite busy on Saturdays and Sundays. Bellows Beach Park is also nearby where you’ll often spot some of our Green Sea Turtles basking in the sun or swimming just off shore. Kaiona Beach Park is just south of here and is known for its excellent snorkeling. A small off-shore reef keeps the water calm, and is home to some of Hawaii’s colorful marine life.
Restaurants and Nightlife
Guests staying at a vacation rental property in Waimanalo have plenty of dining options available as the area boasts a variety of restaurants, pubs and cafes. The Ono Steak and Shrimp Shack is unassuming on the outside but serves up some of the best food this side of the island! Vegans will want to visit ‘Ai Love Nalo. Their Buddha Bowl and beat hummus come highly recommended. For fun evening out, check out the Chief’s Luau inside Sea Life Park.
