This place is a cozy studio 30sec to the gorgeous beach that's not very crowded like Lanikai. I enjoyed every second of my stay at Karin's and I would definitely come back!

Sleepy cottage steps away from a beautiful, quiet beach (with great sunrises!). We loved it! Karin helped us with all our requests but also respected our privacy. We will be back!

Lovely cottage just across the street from the entrance to an amazing beach. We were able to catch the sunrise since it was so close. Super quiet and local neighborhood. Would definitely rent again if I got the chance to come back. Karin was wonderful and let us check out super late since there was no other guests arriving the day we are leaving. Lots of beach equipment as well for us to use.

I decided to stay in Karin's area of the island because I didn't want to be in the touristy part of Honolulu. I ended up spending 2 full relaxing days on the beach with a drink and book in hand. The beach is gorgeous and in no way crowded. I had no safety issues and never felt unsafe. Like any beach, be mindful of your things and don't leave your wallet etc while you go in the water. The area has a few restaurants, but I just took a Lyft to Whole Foods and purchased what I needed for the stay. Awesome studio with all the supplies you could need. Karin was an excellent host and I hope to visit again in the future!

The studio was a great place, few steps away from one of the best beach, Waimanalo in my opinion. The neighborhood was friendly, it is also a drive to waikiki and other places but if you love scene, the shore drive was beautiful. There are only fans at the place, so it would be little hot during day time, but not a problem during night. Karin was a super host, she is super friendly and helpful! I would love to go back there every year if I can!
