Aloha! We renovated this old-style Hawaiian home so that it will have the charm of old Hawaii with modern conveniences. The bungalow is on the ground level of a 2-story home. The 1/2 acre property is double gated (street side and beach side). This garden oasis (we've planted over 3,000 trees and plants) is in the most awesome location - situated right at the entry of Kailua Beach Park - walk out the back gate and you are 100 steps from Kailua Beach where you will find 2.5-miles of its famous soft white-sand and turquoise water - - often rated in the top 10 most beautiful beaches in the world. Beach walk, swim, kayak, wind-surf, kite board, body surf, snorkel, hike, walk/jog the Lanikai loop (4 miles around door-to-door) - there is an abundance of fun activities here...or, completely relax and chill out - it's very easy in this quiet & secluded bungalow. Great retreat for a maximum of 2 easy-going, nonsmoking (since we request no smoking anywhere on the property) adults (25 years and older only). We accept reservations that begin and end on any combination of the following days: Thurs-Sun. The bungalow rental includes: - Off-street parking - Private entry - Private outdoor garden with a barbecue - Wireless Internet - Air Conditioning - Flat screen TV w/ HD cable including free HBO & Showtime - Kitchen includes: Mid-size fridge, microwave, toaster oven, induction cook top (solo), blender, coffee maker, tea hot pot - A new garden room with a 6' by 4' window overlooking your private garden...

  • Right from my first inquiry about the Secluded Kailua Beach Bungalow I was awe struck by Cheri's kindness and willingness to go out of her way to help. I have traveled widely and stayed in many places of a similar style, but this was extraordinary in: - its seclusion but central location, our space being respected but help only a door knock away, every possible comfort and need seemed to have been conceived of and provided, the many small but beautiful touches that remind us that we are in a tropical paradise. Everyone who asks about our trip gets a BIG rave from me about this treasure. Thank you, Cheri, for providing such a sanctuary.

  • Excellent place, excellent host, excellent stay! Kailua is the best place on the Oahu island to stay, and cheri's secluded bungalow provided everything we needed. The place was clean, as described in the add, and user friendly. A recent garden room, expanded this small gem, and was great for meditating and hanging in on wet days on the island. The property is on the back of Kailua Beach park, literally steps from the beach. Would stay again if visiting the región.

  • This is an oasis in the heart of Kailua Beach Park. My wife & I had a blast in this quiet town. We LOVED Kailua beach which is only a few hundred feet from the bungalow. Don't forget to wake up to see the sunrise-- the beach is deserted and the clouds, unforgettable. The bungalow was well equipped and right below where Cheri and Scott live. It has all the beach essentials: cooler, chairs, beach bag and towels, kitchen with pots and pans, small refrigerator, plates, cups etc. (The cooler and towels are especially helpful as we visited the beach at least once a day!) They also give you access to a washer & dryer, onsite parking. The bungalow is perfect for couples as it's the right sq footage for 2, not too big but we didn't stay in much. We recommend you rent a car to see the Island; the north shore, Waikiki etc. The town of Kailua has great restaurants, and shops, plenty of places to shop and only a few minutes away. Whole Foods is there too. Thank you Cheri and Scott for an unforgettable week!

    John2012-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • Cheri and Scott were great hosts! Their home is beautiful and very clean. A few steps to the beach trough the amazing garden, and close to the quiet town of Kailua. They offered good advice on places to visit, eat, etc. We really enjoyed the stay and would love to go back any time!!

    Rafael 2013-04-22T00:00:00Z
  • it was paradise!!!! we had a great time and we would always come back.....and we will :-) . defenitely the best place to relax .... thanks to cheri and scott for erverything!!! our honeymoon was perfect........

    Nathalie2013-06-29T00:00:00Z
  • My girlfriend and I couldn't choose a better place to stay. The bungalow stays really close from our now favorite beach in Oahu, Kailua, and by staying there we we're able to escape from the hustle of Waikiki and enjoy a local atmosphere. The space was more than enough, being cozy, organized, clean and well decorated. Cheri and Scott are really nice people and were great hosts, always available, helping with whatever need we had, it felt like home. We highly recommend them and their bungalow!! This was our best vacations ever and we hope to comeback any time soon!

    Styliano2016-07-15T00:00:00Z
  • Cheri and Michel are incredible hosts, friendly and helpful. Their guide to Oahu is great, their recommendations for restaurants are spot on. They have a guide book in the bungalow that we highly recommend using. The bungalow is beautiful, and the distance to the beach cannot be beat. My husband and I absolutely enjoyed our stay in the bungalow!!

    Tammy2013-12-14T00:00:00Z
  • The overall quality of this accommodation cannot be overstated. Everything that we expect in a high-quality hotel room, and more, is delivered here. There is a great amount of care and attention to detail, the space is impeccably clean, and the location is, for us, perfect -- literally one minute to the beach. It's quiet, and the grounds are beautiful. There is a convenient little market next door. The hosts are attentive & friendly. When we return to Kailua, we are headed back to this place, and we might just decide to move in permanently.

    Secluded Beach Bungalow
    139 reviews
    Private studio with comfy queen bed, ocean breezes and private garden lanai. Enjoy indoor or outdoor dining. Kitchen for preparing your meals. Private bathroom with large shower. Exquisite white sand beach - swim, walk, lounge,body board. Great snorkeling, tidepooling, even beginner surfing within a mile. Beach toys! Hawaii GET and TAT taxes included in pricing.
    Literally only one house between you and the lovely Waimanalo Beach - five miles of white sand and turquoise ocean. The cottage is a funky, older construction beach home. We think it's comfy and love to hear the ocean and feel the breezes. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to make your stay better!
    Fabulous neighborhood - friendly with lots of neighbors who walk their dogs several times each day. The studio is two blocks from our neighborhood co-op market - produce, poke, yummy prepared food. Next to the co-op is a fantastic vegan restaurant and a McDs! Beach is uncrowded and sunrises are breathtaking.
  • We had a lovely stay at Karin's. The location was wonderful with a spectacular beach just a short walk away and very quiet. The accommodation was as described and Karin answered all our questions and was very friendly. We would recommend to anyone who wanted to stay this side of the island.

    Alison2016-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Karin was very helpful and communicative, and the location is fantastic! Just steps off of one of the most beautiful beaches on Oahu (and no crowds!). Waimanalo is a nice little community in a beautiful setting! Karin made us feel right at home.

    Richard2016-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • This was an awesome location with easy bus access. The house itself was perfect. Being detached it was good because I was on crazy time zone staying up quite a bit. Beach is beautiful and the hosts were so lovely. Thanks again! PS you can walk to awesome restaurants too!

    Melina2017-04-21T00:00:00Z
  • 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!

    Nhu2017-07-09T00:00:00Z
  • Karin is an excellent host and the location is ideal. 1 minute walk to a quiet, beautiful beach.

    Christopher2017-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • Karin is a very nice and considerate landlord. She checked on us during the stay to see whether we need anything. The location of the place is perfect, with one of the best beaches Ive ever been. Definitely recommended!

    Rebecca2016-09-11T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our experience staying at this "sweet studio" and definitely would again. Great location, literally steps from the beach, and a cool vibe that I loved "coming home" to. Very Hawaiian feel, staying this Ohana (family) unit. Lots of privacy and a homey interior - a little more decorated than in the photos (knick-knacks, art, books) but all adding to the charm and comfort of the place. Super comfortable bed and pillows, all the amenities we needed to cook indoors and out. We hope to return and stay again - that says it all :)

    Alexander2016-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay at Karin's. The studio was perfect - a great location on Oahu and a stone's throw to a beautiful and quiet beach. Karin had the flu when we visited so we didn't actually get to meet her, but she still went out of the way to make us feel welcome and to make sure we had everything we needed. (And, ps, the vegan restaurant in the neighborhood is amazing!)

    Victor 2016-05-31T00:00:00Z
  • Had an amazing time at Chris' place in Waimanalo. Place was very clean and good size for 4 adults. Nice Keurig machine for the coffee drinkers and full kitchen with kitchenware and drawer full of spices. Apartment was in a quiet neighborhood and about a mile from Waimanalo Beach Park. Beach Park was a huge plus as it felt like a private beach since there were only a handful of other people at the beach. Island is pretty small so everywhere we went seemed no more than a 30 minute drive. My friends and I stayed 5 nights an spent most of our time chasing the waterfalls Oahu has to offer and they were all less than 20 minutes from this place. Wakiki Beach was also a 30 minute drive but we regretted going to Wakiki since we usually had Waimanalo Beach to ourselves. If I ever go back to Oahu I'd definitely stay at Chris' place. Internet worked fine, cable worked great, and I believe there was Chrome Cast available. Bathroom was also clean and Chris also supplied some beach supplies (football, volley ball, plastic tools to play in the sand). Parking was shared with another vehicle and parking was a little tight depending on where the other vehicle parked. But a parking spot was always available so wasn't that big of a deal.

    David2016-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Great experience , nice apartment , close to the ocean.

    Pavel2015-11-05T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay to get away from the busyness of Honolulu. Not too far from many attractions on the island and a short drive (or bike ride or even walk) to Waimanalo Beach. My family had a great time using the buggy boards Chris made available for us to use. Washer/dryer on-site is very convenient. One time we had trouble finding parking at the house, but we contacted Chris who was very responsive in informing us there was additional parking just a few minutes walk away. Overall, a great place to stay and a great host.

    Steve2016-03-26T00:00:00Z
  • No complaints about this place; Chris was efficient with communication, the property was as described and it was quite enough for us to rest up after a long haul flight from the UK. We were worried about parking after reading other reviews, but this was not a big problem for us (a couple of times we needed to park a few yards down the street). The a/c in every room was great.

    Thalie2016-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • Chris place was excellent! We were a party of 4 adults and a toddler. The location was perfect for us. The closest beach was not even two miles and it's just amazing!!!! The place was clean and like a 5stars hotel. Beds are comfortable. It was a enough room for everyone and we all felt very comfortable. Chris communication was excellent. Honestly, it's one of the best Airbnb I have been to. I can't complain. Definitely recommend it!

    Laura2017-05-07T00:00:00Z
  • Staying at Chris & Mari's place felt almost like home. They are very accommodating​, responsive, and were able to give lots of good suggestions for things to do and places to eat. The place is very clean and located in a quiet area​ - allowing you to really enjoy the aloha spirit of Hawaii. The beach is also within walking distance. Fresh beach towels were provided and there's some beach gear available for you to borrow. We absolutely enjoyed staying there and hope to get a chance to visit again in the future. Highly recommended of you're planning a stay in O'ahu!

    Jacob2017-04-10T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing experience! Everything was exactly how it was shown in the pictures...and we couldn't have asked for a better location. Very comfortable beds which was a huge bonus for our group. Wifi worked great, when we needed to turn on the air conditioners they cooled the rooms in a short amount of time, Waimanalo Bay is within walking distance (walked over to it myself one day), we felt safe and secure...LOVED the balconies off one bedroom and then off the living room. Chris was very welcoming and accommodating! Thank you thank you thank you!

    Get out of the city lights and stay in the country! Our studio is nestled in the back of beautiful Waimanalo valley with the Ko'oloau mountain range as a backdrop. We have plenty of outdoor space on site with seasonal fruit and nut trees but are also a short distance away from many trailheads, beaches, conveniences and hot spots as well!
    A private bedroom and bathroom/kitchen combo with a private entrance. There is a comfortable queen sized bed and an available sofa bed. Black out curtains will additionally assist you in getting as much vacation sleep as you want. Additional bedroom amenities: TV, iron/ironing board and beach towels. The modern bathroom is brand new and clean. There is a full sized mirror, mini fridge, microwave and counter space for using the kitchen supplies we have equipped the space with. Small, well behaved dogs are welcome to stay. A dog bed and bowls can be provided. Smoking is permitted outside of the unit.
    Our unit sits in what locals affectionately refer to as "Gods Country." Otherwise known as Waimanalo. The town gets its name because it is truly a beautiful site to see and experience. From the vertical green mountains to the longest most beautiful white sand beaches you've seen. Our unit sits in the most quiet remote part of Waimanalo where space and privacy is valued. There are many things to do. We are about a mile away from the town center where groceries and gas are easy to find. Trailheads for relaxing forest hikes are nearby, or if you prefer miles and miles of white sand, we are only a couple of minutes away from one of the worlds most awesome beaches.
  • If you are looking for a cozy little place nestled in the foothills of Waimanalo, this is the place! This was our family's first Airbnb experience so we didn't know what to expect. What we got was a clean, comfortable, modern, and luxurious room with an adjoining kitchen/bathroom combo stocked with household amenities. We had garage space to park our car, a private entrance, and an electronic lock so we didn't even have to deal with keys. Our hosts were very friendly, knowledgeable, and hospitable, (and the dog too!) My daughter's favorite part of our little vacation was picking nuts and fruits from the trees in the yard with Matthew's wife and playing with their dog, Pohaku. As for the surrounding environment, its gorgeous! The mountains of Waimanalo are a stone's throw away, and the property is full of mature fruit and nut trees. There is very little traffic on the road near the house so you can enjoy the sounds of the country, which include a variety of birds, crickets, and of course, roosters. There is even a hiking trailhead just a short distance down the road. We are very satisfied with our hosts and our experience, and we highly recommend this location if you are looking for a little get-away.

  • **HIGHLY RECCOMEND This place was perfect for our staycation! 1.waimanalo is sooo breathtaking it’s the location that I fell in love with. The mountains and the beaches are so picturesque- your eyes don’t believe anything is real. 2. Matt & Ui were really sweet hosts! They informed us on the things to do that we’re close by and made us feel like we were home. 3. The place was clean, and so cute (the pictures don’t do it justice). Also it was a great pricing for the spot! I’m coming back to Matt and Ui’s waimanalo home.

    Nalo Cottage is a private, secluded one bedroom garden cottage, half a block from one of the best beaches in Hawaii. We are located in a quiet, family neighborhood still evocative of old Hawaii. The comfortable, spacious cottage is detached from the main house. It has 10 foot high ceilings, 760 square feet of living space, and an exclusive outdoor patio. The cottage is equipped with wifi, basic cable, coffee, tea, linens, bath towels, beach towels and chairs, boogie boards and beach gear.
    The cottage is furnished with vintage Koa wood furniture and Hawaiian memorabilia. Other furnishings are new, including a king bed and a queen sleeper sofa. There is a new air conditioner in the bedroom. For guests with small children, we provide a Graco pack n' play, high chair and beach toys.
    We are within walking distance of several excellent local cafes, including Ai Love 'Nalo (vegan), Ono Steaks and Shrimp Shack (Hawaiian food, great fish), Hawaiian Island Cafe (breakfast and lunch), and Waimanalo Poke Shop. We are 15 minutes from Kailua, which has many restaurants, including the iconic Buzz's.
  • This was a nice cottage, in a quiet neighborhood with a very short walk to the beach. The beach was nice and clean and very uncrowded. Peter had numerous good suggestions for places to visit and eat which we followed and enjoyed. Well-appointed kitchen which we would have used more had we not eaten out so much. Thanks, Mark and Gia

    Mark2017-07-16T00:00:00Z
  • New rental unit with nice furniture and amenities. Didn't get to meet the hosts, but they left us a bottle of wine, fruit and some chocolates for our anniversary! Very thoughtful. Beach is a close walk and isn't crowded. A few restaurants within walking distance. I would recommend.

    Rick and Moria2017-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • My 15-year-old daughter and I just returned for a wonderful few days at Terri and Hal's place. Their cottage was more spacious than we expected. It was well appointed and the bed and sofa bed were very comfortable. The walk to the beach is VERY short and there are great boogie boarding opportunities there. The cottage is located in a quiet family neighborhood which appears to also be quite safe. We loved the sounds of the birds. There were many great activities within a 15-20 minute drive.

    Brent2017-04-03T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay. Terri was quick to respond to any questions we had during our booking process. She accommodated us and made us feel comfortable , especially having our dad who cannot walk very well. The walk-in shower and chair helped my dad very much. The cottage was clean and furnished well. Although we didn't meet Terri and Hal, Peter was there to meet us and was great. We loved being close to the beach where it wasn't crowded and was perfect for bodyboarding. A big mahalo to you all.

    Sarah2017-05-08T00:00:00Z
  • This cottage is an excellent option option for 2 guests looking to stay just minutes away from a beautiful beach. The cottage was clean, and comfortable and had a lot of great extras such as beach chairs, umbrella, boogie boards and beach towels. The hosts were incredibly accommodating and helpful. Only a 30 minute drive to Honolulu! A great airbnb, we couldn't have been more happy with our stay here!

    Porsche2017-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • This is a beautiful, newly renovated cottage (nicer than the cottage we had when I was a kid!) within walking distance to the incredible Waimanalo Beach. Also a quick drive to Kailua, or a 25 minute trip to Honolulu, depending on traffic. I enjoyed my stay immensely, and used the place as a jumping off spot to many activities. Diving into the surf was a great way to get up and get going in the morning! The owners were so very nice and accommodating, I feel like I gained some new friends. The cottage is nicely laid out and very comfortable. I slept like a baby at night, enjoyed the luxurious shower and jacuzzi, and made some fantastic meals in the well appointed kitchen. I plan to go back and stay at Nalo Cottage again on my next trip to O'ahu.

    Chris2017-03-27T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed every aspect of our stay: the cottage, location, and specially our hosts. Starting with location - a few min walk from Waimanalo beach, one of the best beaches on the island. This is where locals go, no crowds. Make sure you watch the sunrise one morning, it is truly worth while. The cottage is spacious and has everything you need, from beach gear for daily trips to a large kitchen to cook some delicious meals. A selection of towels and pillows are just some of the things that the hosts have thought of to make your stay more comfortable. That brings us to the wonderful hosts. They welcomed us like family and treated us like royalty. They were attentive and kind, particularly to our 3 year old who was spoiled with attention, cold lemonade and ice cream. We really enjoyed their company, it made our stay extra special. I highly recommend his cottage for anyone looking for a good base in Waimanalo and access to other attractions Oahu has to offer. It's spacious, you're surrounded by a nice garden, and you'll even get a visit from the neighbours' chicken and chicks in the mornings.

    Rikard2017-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • Super place, photos really don't do it justice. Really comfortable for our three night stay and we could easily have stayed longer. Our 5 month old baby girl was well provided for with toys, crib and feeding equipment. Great recommendations for dinner locally from Uncle Peter. Really friendly people and would recommend the location, one of the most beautiful beaches we've seen. Smoothies at Ai Love Nalo at the end of the road were divine.

    Come experience local family living on the island of O'ahu. Our humble neighborhood is nestled at the base of the Koolau Mountains and is 1 mile from Dr. Beach's #1 Beach for 2015, Waimanalo Bay. Our attached studio is a great budget alternative for flexible travelers that includes one designated uncovered parking stall.
    Come experience local family living on the island of O'ahu. Our humble neighborhood is nestled at the base of the Koolau Mountains and is 1 mile from Dr. Beach's #1 Beach for 2015, Waimanalo Bay. Our attached studio is a great budget alternative for flexible travelers that includes one designated uncovered parking stall. Waimanalo is on the east side of the island, known as the "Windward Side." It is conveniently located between world famous Lanikai Beach and Waikiki Beach (about a 30 minute drive to each). Sea Life Park is nearby where guests can swim with dolphins during the day and enjoy a Hawaiian luau in the evening. We are a busy family with toddlers, teenagers, and a Havanese dog so we will enjoy guests who make themselves at home. We live on site and are available for questions and needs. The unit sleeps 2 people and has a queen size bed and a fold out twin size futon for travelers with a young child or third individual which can be placed on the floor. We are baby/kid friendly. Turn on the AC or the ceiling fans, close the windows, and tune out environmental noise. The park adjacent to us is open to the public. It typically gets locked at 7 pm except for parking use during special events at the community guest house on the weekends. We have chickens roaming around our neighborhood too. Quiet hours are between 10 pm - 7 am. The unit has access to an air conditioner which is VERY nice for the humid Hawaiian nights. There is a laundry mat half a mile away but we do complimentary washing during your stay. The bus stop is very close to our house also. If you have further questions please let us know. We look forward to the possibility of having you as our guest.
    We live in a simple older Hawaii neighborhood. It was developed for the plantation workers that worked in Waimanalo in the 1970's. Residents have lived in the community for many years and are respectful. We ask our guests to be respectful drivers and visitors while visiting.
  • Kaui is such a cordial host! Everything you need you will find in this place: shampoo, shower gel, soap, plenty of towels, snorkel and beach stuff, wifi, a small kitchen for self-supporter, cooler und much more. But the best thing was the friendly welcoming and her nice family. Hope we can come back and stay there again.

  • We rented the place for 5 days for our beach wedding in Waimanalo Bay. Upon our arrival, we were welcomed with a glass of wine and a box of chocolate. Kaui not only made our vacation hassle-free, but she went the extra mile to help us out with our wedding and volunteered to drive me (bride) to the beach and took videos for us during the ceremony. She also provides a vehicle for rent and she was nice enough to drop us off to the airport on our last day. She is also very responsive to all our messages and ensures that we have everything that we need. Space - Very clean and spacious studio with well-appointed furniture and all the stuff you need - airconditioner, TV, vacuum, full-size fridge with some treats and beverages, comfy bed and comforter, coffee maker, rice cooker, hot plate, pots and pans, plates, bowls, glasses, wine glasses, cups, iron, iron board, towels, toiletries, etc. Kaui also provides beach towels, snorkeling gear, beach umbrella, boogie boards, cooler, and beach mats - everything that you need for the beach. Neighborhood - 5-min drive to Waimanalo beach, 10-15 min drive to Kailua beach, and 20-min drive to the must-see Makapu'u Point Lookout, 30-min drive to Honolulu/Waikiki. It's close to affordable restaurants too like Ono Shrimp and Steak, Keneke's, Dave's Ice Cream, and a couple of minutes walk to Shima's Supermarket and 711. There's also a laundrymat nearby and there's a park adjacent to the house. The neighborhood is very quiet with a very beautiful view of the mountain. This is our first time in Hawaii and thanks to Kaui and family for making it memorable and extra special. Kaui, Steve, and the family are very sweet, thoughtful and genuine people. I highly recommend their place and we'll definitely stay again on our next visit!

  • Our time with Kaui was wonderful. She truly embodies the aloha spirit and could not have been more responsive to our needs. The studio is very tastefully arranged and decorated with local art. There is plenty of storage space; no need to live out of a suitcase; and room in the closet for your bags. After Kaui’s warm welcome we settled in and felt at home immediately, helping ourselves to the cold passion fruit juice in the refrigerator. The bed was very comfortable and the TV positioned perfectly. There are two ceiling fans in addition to the air conditioner. I have never stayed anywhere that was so well equipped. There was a beach umbrella and a rain umbrella. We loved having a full sized refrigerator. In addition to the microwave, there was a toaster oven, two burner hot plate and rice cooker. Everything needed for a day at the beach was supplied: beach towels, a cooler with blue ice, a treasure chest of snorkeling gear and boogie boards. When we mentioned to Kaui that we were used to having beach mats, they quickly appeared! And the fantastic Waimanalo Beach is minutes away. If you are a snorkeler, don’t miss Kaiona Beach also minutes away. We liked being able to walk to Waimanalo Beach Town Center for a daily paper and supplies. Finally Waimanalo is the perfect location for a stress-free, pleasant stay on Oahu, away from hordes of tourists. We were within 20 minutes of world class snorkeling in Hanuama Bay and also Kailua Town, filled with restaurants and shops. We enjoyed live Hawaiian music Saturday night at Larry’s Grill located five minutes away overlooking the Olomana Golf Course. Honolulu is easily reached via the beautiful Pali Highway. What a fabulous find and a great bargain!

    Our bright, cozy two bedroom is family friendly with a fully stocked kitchen & lots of beach gear. Nestled in lush nature, with incredible mountain views, and just a five minute drive to beautiful Waimanalo beach, 15 minute drive to famed Lanikai Beach, you can experience country & beach living all in one! Hiking trails accessible just down the road. A great location if you're looking to explore the island but want somewhere to relax & slow down at the end of the day :)
    Our sweet cottage is fully furnished with everything you need to live comfortably. You are welcome to harvest any of the fresh fruits growing around you (coconut, papaya, apple bananas, lilikoi (passion fruit), avocado), when they are in season! The gorgeous mountain views outside your bedroom window or from your comfortable lawn furniture will amaze you; and the rooster's crow will add to the country charm. Famed Kailua Beach is just 10 minutes away, with beautiful Waimanalo Beach a quick 5 minute drive. You can get to Hanauma Bay in only 20 minutes. In this two bedroom you will find a superior, memory foam queen size bed, and a twin size trundle bed for your convenience (so your room can be a single twin, two twins, or one King!). We also have a pack-n-play (portable crib) available.
    At the end of our country road (walking distance), is a trailhead to several different hikes, from beginner to advanced. There are interesting nurseries and farms to see along the way. Beautiful Waimanalo Beach is just a 5 minute drive!
  • Our host Leah was so so sweet and communicated extremely well throughout the process. We would definitely stay here again. It was quiet and safe. The house was a little stuffy upon arrival but after opening everything up, it was an amazing island feel and breeze! It was awesome to stay on this side of the island. I am a new fan! Liked it better then Waikiki which was a surprise to me. Although, this city girl had a little adjusting to do but fell in love! Be sure to go to Ohana Karaoke where they pass the mic around the tables and even kids can be there before 8pm. Food was good too! Waimanola beach is perfect for all levels. 10 minute drive is the most beautiful on the island with Makapuu, Sandy's (only to watch) and Hanama Bay! Aloha

    Kristen-Poli2016-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Clean, adorable cottage, tucked away in Waimanalo, with a beautiful back yard view! Leah was a very welcoming and accommodating host. We appreciated the location, the availability of beach and snorkel gear and the visits from the dogs and chickens!

    Rachel2016-11-27T00:00:00Z
  • Leah was awesome she was very friendly and made you feel at home. The little country cottage was nice and comfortable. Her rooster were amazing love hearing them sing every morning.

    Clarissa2017-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • The Country Cottage was a slice of paradise. I stayed there with my partner for 6 days. We enjoyed the Hawaiian countryside, complete with mountain views, lush greenery, avocado trees, a private backyard on a hill, roaming chickens and two adorable dogs. The cottage was cozy, cleanly designed and well-appointed. The pictures and the description on the listing were accurate. Leah provided excellent directions from the airport and clear instructions for check-in. We had fresh flowers and lilikoi waiting for us upon arrival. The vibe is quiet, peaceful and laid-back. The neighborhood is safe and friendly. I saw a couple people jogging and biking on the road. I noticed the previous reviews mentioned Internet access. We found the Internet access and the cell coverage to be pretty good although we spent our time either on the beach or in the backyard, not streaming movies. Waimanalo Beach is a short drive away and it's a gem, mostly frequented by locals.

    Marta2015-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • We had the most wonderful time staying at Leah's country cottage - her entire family went out of their way to make us feel welcome and truly showed us their aloha spirit. Since we were traveling with two young kids (3.5 and 1.5 years) Leah ensured that we had everything we could possibly need for the kids, from a clean pack'n'play (with extra sheets), high chair, inflatable bath and tons of kids books and toys. Our girls had the best time at the cottage, especially when the friendly chickens and pups came to visit! Leah's wonderful daughters even offered to babysit our sleeping girls one night so that the husband and I could take a date night! The cottage has a fully stocked kitchen, comfortable beds and was beautifully decorated. The soothing sounds of the birds, roosters, geckos and winds through the foliage really enhanced the feeling of peace and calm here, as well as the gorgeous views of the Koolau mountain range! We made awesome family memories here - thank you Leah and ohana for sharing your home with us!

    Rachael2015-04-25T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time at the Country Cottage. As a former Hawaii resident, this brought me back to the charm of the Aloha spirit. The Cottage is clean, neat, and cozy. Leah provides endless amenities which include linens, coffee, beach supplies, and chocolate. We also had daily visitors named Buddha and Peanut Butter that were so sweet and made it easier to be away from our dogs. The cottage is close to beaches, and good eats…everything you need for the perfect getaway. We can't be more grateful.

    Matt2015-10-18T00:00:00Z
  • Cozy home with nice decor. I liked the garden with mountain view a lot. And the golden coconut trees, they are so special and beautiful. This place is 30mins away from Waikiki by driving but close to Kailua and Hanauma bay. It's a good place for relaxing and to explore the island(need to have a car).

    Ruby2016-11-08T00:00:00Z
  • Leah was good in communication. Her place is clean and comfortable. I am glad that I stayed at her place and we enjoyed playing with her dogs and sitting outside in the backyard.

    This newly built studio cottage feels open and cozy at the same time. Giant screen (70") with AppleTV. On demand hot water for huge shower with bench. Split system AC to keep cool. A short 2 minute walk to a beautiful uncrowded beach with easy swimming. Not shown is the cute front yard with BBQ and private entrance. Convenience stores and cafes in walking distance. Grocery stores, shopping and numerous restaurants are minutes away by car.
  • This is a beautiful well-kept (essentially new!) cottage that is close to one of the best beaches on Oahu. If you're looking for nearby nightlife (bars, clubs, etc.) this isn't the right place to stay. However it is perfect for a couple (without kids) trying to enjoy the tropical island outside of the hustle and bustle of the main cities on the island. If you go here, be sure to listen to your hosts as they know the area quite well and will have many good suggestions of beaches, hikes, attractions, or nice places to eat. No matter what it's a great place to stay to be out-of-the way but still around plenty of great things to do. Oh and make sure to do at least one sunrise walk or sit on the beach within a block of the cottage, it's early but it's worth it!

    Matthew2017-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Cutest place in an awesome location, I hope I get to stay there in my future trips to Oahu. The hosts are very thoughtful and lovely all around. It exceeded my expectations. 5 stars!

    Viviana2017-06-17T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay at the Tropical Paradise Beach Cottage. It was as described and had all the needed amenities. We came in on a very late flight, so we arranged everything ahead of time to access the property. It was very private with it's own small yard and access gate. Someone mentioned in another review about the location on the hwy. It was a bit hard to get turned around to park in front of the access gate at times. However, the noise from the street wasn't that bothersome to us. Waimanalo beach is beautiful and wasn't busy at all and was only a short walk down the street. Our hosts were quick to respond to any questions or requests.

    Leah2017-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • The studio was completely new, decorated with taste and with everything we needed. We were traveling with our baby and B provided a high chair and a crib. The yard is very nice and perfect to prepare a BBQ. B provided beach chairs, towels, umbrellas and boogie boards, which are perfect for the area. B was very attentive and helpful when needed, while giving us our privacy. The studio was extremely clean. The bathroom was very nice and the huge shower deserves a special mention. Altogether we had a great stay, I would go again undoubtedly.

    Rocio2017-08-16T00:00:00Z
  • My wife and I stayed at this wonderful cottage for two nights and we had an amazing experience! This was our first time using Airbnb and they set the bar really high, everything was perfect down to the smallest of details. One of my small concerns was the proximity to the beach, but after arriving that was quickly alleviated with a short 3-minute walk to probably one of the most scenic strips of beach we have ever been to. I am certain we will be staying here again when we need another quick get-away.

    Brandon2017-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • B.'s place is close to the beach maybe 5 mins walk. Convenient stores and restaurants are a 5 min walk down the highway. There is a bus stop maybe 100 feet from the gate, so the cottage location is very good. The inside of the cottage is completely remodeled and very nice. The AC and appliances were useful there is even a grill to use outside. Overall a wonderful place to stay.

    steven2017-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • The description and pictures of this unit are accurate. What is not revealed is that it is situated just a few feet from a very busy highway. The new construction of this unit includes double pane windows which lower the road noise a bit, but earplugs are helpful for those unaccustomed to the sound of traffic in the bedroom. The kitchen is fully equipped. Beach chairs, cooler, boogie boards and beach towels are provided. The bed is comfortable and there is a huge new shower. If you’ve never experience a six-foot TV with a paid subscription to Netflix you are in for a surprise. It totally transports you and road noise to another planet. The couple who run this B&B are very helpful and responsive to any needs or questions you might have. The unit is very close to what is arguably the most wonderful white sand beach in all of the Hawaiian Islands. We found it to be uncrowded and peaceful. A walk on the beach can be up to six miles long if you’re looking for some exercise.

    Greg2017-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • My wife and I had a wonderful stay! Very close to the beach and away from the crazy Honolulu traffic! Hosts were incredibly hospitable and went above and beyond to make our stay special.

    Our neighborhood is very quiet and friendly - you can hear the waves break on the beach. There are some restaurants and small stores which you can walk to or bike (we have beach bikes)
  • This small beach cottage was pristine, quiet & secluded, away from all of the other tourists. If you want to know what it's like to live in Hawaii, this cottage is perfect. The neighborhood is picturesque & every home is unique. Jaime had bikes for us to ride around on, that's a ride you will never forget. The cottage has a kitchenette with everything you need including delicious Hawaiian coffee. We used the stove top cooker to make eggs for breakfast and it worked perfectly. The laundry machines were located just outside in their beautiful backyard. The smell of white hibiscus flowers delicately flows with the breeze from the huge tree outside of the yard. We opted not to rent the AC unit and slept with the fan and windows open, it worked perfectly for us. There's a good cross breeze in the bedroom, with double-windows on three of the walls. The locals are sweet people who say good morning & smile when they pass you. This is the third house from the beach. This beach is never crowded & with a mountain as a backdrop, it's breathtaking. We enjoyed a romantic stay at this beach cottage. Highly recommend for anyone traveling solo or especially for couples.

    Irma2017-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • This is such an amazing location! It's a tiny bungalow with a decent amount of outdoor space. Perfect for two people. It has a small kitchen good enough for heating a few things up or storing snacks, but I wouldn't plan using it for anything too elaborate. The apartment can be a bit hot at night as there's no AC, but there are ceiling fans and a great ocean breeze. It's 30-40 minutes from Waikiki/Honolulu, which was perfect for us. But with such a wonderful beach steps away, why do you need to even go there? The beach was our own patch of paradise with very few people around. I don't know if it's regularly like this, but the waters can be a bit rough. Not a problem for us, but worth mentioning. Unfortunately, it seems to be a beach which has a lot of trash wash ashore. I think this speaks to a more global issue! This didn't bother us, but I think it's worth mentioning. I think the seclusion and beauty of the water is the real appeal - all those other Oahu beaches are just so crowded! And the water really is so blue. Jaime was always responsive to our questions, as was Art. They are so gracious to allow us to use some of their beach things. Truly a home away from home! They are very clear with what they expect from guests, and that's appreciated. We would definitely return.

    Michael2017-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • Its a good efficacy in a building with two other residences attached. Love all the equipment they offer, and Art is just the right amount of friendly. There aren't many rentals in the area, but the beach is worth it, so anything close is a good deal.

    Alissa2017-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • Evenings on the back porch were sublime

    Michael2017-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time! Waimanalo is a great location, close to many activities in Kailua (by car) and very quiet. We had everything we needed at Jamie's place, very clean, private and comfortable. Being so close to such a nice beach, having the private patio and the BBQ made it possible to enjoy at max our stay and that part of the island. Highly recommended, could not have chosen a better place.

    Mihaela2017-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • Art & Jaime’s place is perfect!!! I regret not booking it for longer... the location is amazing...just a very short walk to one of the best beaches I have ever been to. Very quiet neighborhood and peaceful stay. I will definitely return.

    Get an out-of-the-way cottage that's cozy and close to the ocean. Two bedrooms, full kitchen, lovely garden, 3 minute walk to 5 mile white sand beach, your home in Hawaii. Waimanalo... the town that time forgot.
    Get an out-of-the-way cottage that's cozy and close to the ocean. Waimanalo is famous for its five mile sandy beach , surrounded by the lush Ko'olau Mountains. Climb a palm tree, pick a tropical flower .... Sitting in the backyard of this Hawaiian style house you can watch the clouds dance over the tops of the Ko'olau Mountains. You have found your home away from home. There are boogie boards, snorkel gear, bbq, coolers, beach chairs, beach towels, washer/dryer, air conditioning, Internet/WIFI, hammock.... "How long we stayin?" There are two bedrooms each with queen bed, a full kitchen, and a real comfortable living room. Local style you got your shack, you're meeting neighbors, you're even watering the lawn. No way you'll ever stay in one of them square hotels again. You'll be back and so will your friends and friends of friends and this is how legends start. All in a town that time forgot ..... Waimanalo Pets considered on a case by case basis.
    This is a quiet, residential neighborhood. You will feel like you live in Hawaii. The beach is so close. You simply stroll down the street. As you start walking to the beach, you get a glimpse of that unreal blue of the Waimanalo ocean and you can't wait to get there. Look the other way, and you have the most dramatic view of the Ko'olau Mountains.
  • We were very welcomed by Ana and her husband. They supplied us with wonderful fresh eggs from their chickens. The Cottage is small but was comfortable for 4 adults. We played ball with Poki their dog most mornings and evenings. The local knowledge was great and the local area lovely. If you are wanting to stay away from large crowded beaches and resorts then this is a great spot to use as a base and has everything you need close by, shops etc. There is plenty of linen, towels etc. There is a couple living very close next door in an attached annex, they have a young child and 2 dogs, they also share the backyard and washing facilities, not that it bothered us greatly. Overall we had a great time and have no complaints about the "Out of the Cottage" Oloha...

    Lachlan 2016-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • We had such a lovely stay. This house was perfect size, location and had everything we needed. Incredible value! The location couldn't be (URL HIDDEN) quiet and outside of the busier Honolulu and charming Kailua. Quick walk to a quiet beach, within 10-20 mins of great restaurants. We could stay busy or relax, our choice every day thanks to the convenient location and amenities offered. Ana answered questions quickly and was great with communicating. We fell in love with Oahu and this part of the island because of her, we're forever grateful!

    Margaux2017-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Our experience with Ana was wonderful. From the moment we arrived, Ana welcomed us with a clean home, and all the amenities needed to make our month stay feel like home. We enjoyed the quiet, lovely white sand beach just a short walk from the house. Thanks for sharing your little piece of paradise in Waimanalo.

    Jamey2015-11-07T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful holiday at Ana's Mountain View cottage in Waimanalo. Ana is a very pleasant and relaxed host who made us feel right at home. She was always available when we needed her for information or advice, but gave us complete privacy and independence. We were welcomed with gifts of local coffee, chocolates, and eggs from her chickens. The cottage is completely well-equipped with everything you need in the kitchen, and for the beach (chairs, snorkel equipment, boogie boards, towels), and Ana provides an excellent information binder for restaurants, and things to do. The big beautiful beach is only half a block from the house, and was always practically deserted. We walked there every morning while our daughter slept. We were there in March and the waves were a little big for me, but my husband and daughter enjoyed boogie boarding while I enjoyed the sun. The only thing we found a little disconcerting was that the cottage was not completely independent as we had thought. There is an attached annex with a family living in it who share the back yard and the laundry facilities. They were not intrusive or loud in any way, but we did often wake up to the sound of their voices as they were having breakfast almost under the bedroom window. The neighbourhood is very quiet, and the location is ideal for exploring all areas of Oahu. We spent the last two nights in Honolulu which made us very, very glad we had spent most of our holiday at Ana's cottage!

  • Amazing home!! So comfy and the beautiful waimanalo can't be beat for your backyard. Comfy housing and everything was phenomenal and nothing else could've been asked for. Loved every minute of it! Very close to great beaches and lookouts and amazing trip and stay overall!! Would be so lucky to live here

    Alice2017-05-24T00:00:00Z
  • Ana was great about checkin and allowed us a late checkout. She was great about meeting all our needs. It was nice knowing she was right across the drive if needed. Oh and the chocolates and coffee were a great treat. One if our favorite coffees. We will be back.

    Linda2016-12-17T00:00:00Z
  • Ana's home is one block from the white sand beaches of Waimanalo and is THE reason you should give this place a try. Waimanalo is a small town which is great since it provides distance from the more touristy areas. It's within 15 minutes to Kailua and Hawaii Kai - two neighboring towns that we found to have the most commerical resources. It's also not as far from the airport as it seems which was a plus. The house is on the older side but was very clean and well supplied. However, given the house is a bit older, you should also be comfortable with an occasional gecko or bug (it is Hawaii after all). It didn't really bother us but it may be an issue for others. The bathroom is small with a standing shower unit. We didn't think to ask about whether they had a tub but a heads up in case you need one. The property is one of at least three units (one of which Ana lives in) that are relatively close to each other. It wasn't a big deal for us because everyone was really nice and quiet but please consider this if you want total seclusion. Ana was an exemplary host and we really enjoyed our stay.

    Joe2017-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • The house was a nice little place to relax for the week, being so close to the beach was nice for multiple quick trips every day, and the house had everything we needed to feel like home. Nice quiet neighborhood too.

    Welcome to the Beachside Bungalow~~~an ideal place for relaxation, rejuvenation and romance. This very comfortable, artsy studio apartment is super clean and whimsically creative in a laid-back island style, with many little touches that will make you feel right at home. It is located on a beautiful, gated property, on the ground floor of our large extended home. The studio has its own separate entrance and is very private from the rest of the house. (Please note that this rental is for adults only.) There is a front entrance lanai leading you into the studio, and a very private backyard lanai, a great spot for romantic evenings sitting outside listening to the sounds of the surf, or sipping your coffee while the sun rises in the morning. A comfortable loveseat and papasan face the charming garden pond, complete with our resident fish. The waterfall makes a soothing sound, combining with the musical wind chimes and the sound of the surf. A perfect interlude from life’s hectic pace. The studio has a very comfortable queen size bed, with high quality sheets and a beautiful Hawaiian quilt. There is a tropical style ceiling fan and also a stand up fan. The apartment faces towards the ocean, and gets wonderful trade winds passing through, keeping the space cool and comfortable. There is a small bathroom with a seashell decorated toilet and a handcrafted talavera sink. A separate room houses the extra large shower. The kitchenette has a full size refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, blender, small electric griddle and rice cooker, as well as dishes and kitchen utensils. We also offer WiFi. At the front of the property there's a beautiful outdoor beach shower , adorned with amazing turquoise flowers. They're so beautiful and unusual guests can't believe they're real!! A two minute walk down our little road will take you to one of the most breathtaking beaches in Hawaii. Sunrise is spectacular! (In 2001 National Geographic named it one of the most beautiful beaches in the world!) To make your days at the beach even better, we offer the complimentary use of beach chairs & mats, towels, boogie boards, coolers and a sun umbrella. The location is ideal, a residential country setting nestled between the turquoise ocean on one side and the spectacular Ko'olau mountains on the other. Go to sleep at night to the sound of the waves and the sweet waterfall right outside your bedroom window. Wake in the morning to the songs of the many birds who call this home. Relaxation~~~Rejuvenation~~~Romance
    Waimanalo is a truly special place, ideal for those travelers who want to get off the beaten path. We have the longest beach on the island----five miles of white sand and turquoise waters! And the best thing is that it's so peaceful here, most days you can walk for a couple of miles and only see a handful of people! Gorgeous sunrises. Great for boogie boarding and snorkeling. There are quite a few really good, simple little resturants in easy walking distance from the cottage: Ono's Steak and Shrimp Shack, I Love Nalo (vegan), the Waimanalo Beach Cafe, Serg's Mexican Resturant.
  • Skye's home is a perfect location from which to explore the island. We enjoyed using the beach amenities she provides and spent a couple mornings enjoying the sunrise per her recommmendation. There is great food to be found in the area and access to the fridge and kitchen helped us enjoy our finds at the local farmers market. Waimanalo is a beautiful beach and I would recommend Skye's place.

  • Skye's "mermaid cottage" was lovely, quirky, and appeared as described. It's worth noting that the walls are thin, and I could hear the family talking in the cottage beside me all night. Skye provides plenty of towels and beach supplies as well as a big, comfy bed. The neighborhood was quiet and friendly, and the beach is gorgeous. Unfortunately, it became clear to me that after I'd paid, the host didn't actually care about my experience. For this reason, I would not recommend Skye's properties. I found her to be unreasonable and unpleasant to communicate with... I paid almost $600: the full two-person price + fees for three nights (plus a $68 "hawaii hotel tax" IN CASH upon arrival, no questions asked), but when I asked her--24 hours in advance--to add my friend to the rental agreement, Skye refused, citing her "no unregistered guests" policy. I explained that I simply wanted to add a second registered guest, as it's a two person rental. I didn't want to bring unregistered people over or exceed her two-person max; I wanted to share the two-person space with my friend, for one of the nights. She simply refused, then blew me off to finish preparing for her next guests' arrival. I regret spending my money on this B&B. The place itself was charming and I would have fallen in love with it... With it's two private lanais (porches) and plenty of space, as it is set up to accommodate two people comfortably... But being forced to stay there alone for three nights wasn't fun. It's a relatively affordable option for the area, and if you register off the bat as a couple then you'll probably have a fine time together, but one can easily find another place with a host who genuinely cares about everyone's experience.

  • This is the PERFECT place to stay in Oahu if you like the best beach in the world, quiet neighborhoods and simple living. Truly a wonderful place.

    chris2016-11-09T00:00:00Z
  • Staying at Skye's place was truly amazing. Her place has the kind of character where you know she put her heart and soul into every decoration and detail. Being there felt like we were in a home filled with love and serenity. Her place is literally a 2 minute walk to the water so as you are laying in bed at night the ocean waves lull you to sleep. If you get a chance to chat with Skye she is a wonderful woman and now friend :). She told us where the best places to eat, see and experience while we where there. We already miss spending time there and can't wait to be back!

    Michol2016-07-12T00:00:00Z
  • Upon arrival, Skye was very welcoming -- she checked in with me 24hr prior to arrival. She greeted me & my boyfriend with open arms & gave us a tour of her adorable beach bungalow. The pictures & description are EXACTLY what you get & MORE! Perfect size studio with whimsical decor (truly sets the mood of an Hawaiian vacation -- I've stayed in nice hotels & condos but THIS is more my style). The private patio in the back is another escape, complete with a babbling fountain & fish! Please note, there is NO central AC & you have to rely on the warm ocean breeze & fans (that Skye provides). Me & my boyfriend didn't mind, because we liked to keep our windows open to listen to the babbling fountain that lulled us to sleep & since you are on the WINDward side, you definitely get that ocean breeze to cool you down. The beach... well, I'll let that one be a surprise to you... I want to be selfish & not give away this hidden gem on Oahu but Skye is such an amazing hostess who respects your privacy & she truly expects you to have the vacation you deserve, so she deserves the BEST review possible. Thank you beautiful Skye for opening & sharing your home with us, we hope to visit you again soon. April & Matthew

  • This is a very cute little mermaid cottage that's just a quick walk from the beach. Skye is sweet and welcoming while at the same time giving her guests ample privacy. There are chairs and coolers available to take down to the beach and parking is easy as well. Overall a great experience!

    Eric2016-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful apartment. Very close to the beach. The provided beach chairs and umbrellas and fins were very nice to have.

    Welcome to Malihini Hale. Beautiful Kailua apartment, short term, fully furnished with ocean views of Kailua Beach and Bellows Beach. The 870 square foot apartment and attached 370 square foot lanai (deck) has two separate nooks containing a king and twin bed with a kitchen. The apartment has everything you need for a great stay in Hawaii!
  • Upon my arrival at the apartment Kris welcomed me and showed me around. She was warm and so kind. Everything was ready and the apartment was spotless! It was everything I hoped it to be! It is a fantastic neighborhood which is placed conveniently right between the North Shore and Honolulu. Anything you could possibly need is certainly accessible in Kailua. When I met Todd he was equally as welcoming and very nice. He wanted to make sure everything was in order and if I needed anything I should just ask! Overall, my stay in Kailua with Todd and Kris was wonderful! Both are excellent communicators and gracious hosts!

    Samantha2017-08-01T00:00:00Z
  • This apartment is a gem. Stunning sunrise and sunset ocean views from the lanai is surely one of the best. It is beautifully decorated and spotless! My family and I greatly enjoyed this Hawaiian retreat!

    CC2017-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, easy to navigate the entire island from here. The local beaches are spectacular. Lower key than Honolulu but still had great restaurants. Loved the accommodations. Kris is a great host.

    Jamie2017-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Todd and Kris have the perfect place for someone who wants to stay in the island of O'ahu without loosing comfort and access to the cities amenities. Kailua is a special place in the island in between city and country side. The apartment is exactly as seen in the pictures, and they have a very keen eye for details providing all the information and care a guest need. Everything is absolutely clean and well taken care of. Besides, Todd and Kris are always available to get in touch with. Do yourself a favor and stay at they getaway in Kailua and marvel at the view and amenities of their apartment. I really hope to be back!

    Gabriel2016-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • Todd and Kris have created a wonderful place to spend your vacation. The kitchenette has all the utensils you need, bed is clean and comfortable, and the bathroom has more than enough room. They are gracious hosts and provide a booklet with local shops, restaurants, and things to do around town. They even provide some fun beach equipment so you don't have to rent anything! They are always available to answer your questions and provide anything you might need during your stay. The view is also great after a long day, where you can sit back and watch the white caps of the windward shore.

    Our bright and cozy beach unit is the perfect spot for a couple or solo traveler who want a quiet and slow paced getaway. We are a 2 min walk to one of the most beautiful uncrowded beaches on the island. We're conveniently located between Hawaii Kai and Kailua Town if you want to dine out or hit some shops or just relax and enjoy a book and drink down on the beach! With the magical Koʻolau Mountains behind you, and the ocean in front of you, there's no place like our home.
    This space is our cozy guest house. We hope you enjoy it! My husband and I decided this would be a great experience to host travelers/vacationers as we LOVE using AirBnb on our travels. Thus, we are new to the host side, which is why there are not many reviews yet. Avid AirBnb-ers ourselves, we're very excited to give people an unforgettable stay, just as we've been given at other hosts' homes. Situated below the Ko'olau Mountain Range and a block from the beach, you couldn't get a better space and location for the price. The unit is a quick two minute walk (if that) to the most jaw-dropping, pristine beach that was rated one of the top beaches in the country. We are a short 5 minute drive to the beautiful Makapuʻu Beach if you want to get tossed around in some bigger waves or explore the tide pools. If you are here to surf, we can give you some great spots as well. If you are here and love to hike, you're also in the right spot! There are so many hikes in the area and we can point you in the right direction. Waimanalo also has some great farms and is home to a couple new shops/cafes that feature Waimanalo grown veggies. While you're here, you must make a stop at Ai Love Nalo for some amazing local vegan food and the Waimanalo Co-op market for locally made goodies, produce and poke (fresh raw fish). You will not be disappointed. Our place is a quaint one bedroom, one bath unit with kitchenette and private entry on a property between two other tenants. The unit includes a double-size bed, drawers for your use, fans (ceiling and also standing), plus small separate kitchenette space with refrigerator, sink, hot plate, microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker and other appliances. We also offer cable TV and Netflix to watch in your bedroom. There is also access to an outdoor shower with hot water after the beach! The unit accommodates 2 people-max very comfortably.
    Waimanalo is a true gem. It's a small quiet town/neighborhood but has a lot of heart. Please respect the neighborhood and locals! Keep noise down especially at late hours, pick up all trash, and park in designated area only.
  • My husband and I stayed here for a week and a half getaway to Oahu and loved it! Both hosts were super accessible and Rachel is fantastic at directly staying on top of her communications with guests. The property is between two other homes but we never had any issue with noise or privacy concerns; it was a lovely, intimate one-bed one-bath with a very functional kitchenette and it served all of our needs and then some. No A/C, but fans abound (and Rachel even offered us an additional standing fan in their home if we needed it). The property truly is a 2 minute walk down the street from the beautiful Waimanalo beach that we rarely saw more than a person or two on. Lovely place to watch the sunrise and enjoy being out of the tourist madness. My husband had never been to Oahu before and when he felt the Waimanalo sand compared to the coarser Waikiki sand he understood why we stayed where we did. The beaches are impossibly soft and pristine. Having the mountains right around you is a breathtaking perk. From a logistics side, Rachel was a pro at managing scheduling, being available (like, "answering her phone at midnight to answer my question when she was out of town and I forgot about the time difference" available! Sorry again!), providing great tips for the area, opening up their home to us, and being super flexible on check-in and check-out times. We definitely would highly recommend both this home and its hosts—we had a marvelous time!

    Hannah2017-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay was absolutely wonderful! The room was the perfect size for 2 and it came with all the amenities we needed to relax comfortably: fan & air conditioning, hot plate, comfortable bathroom, TV with an HDMI port, ect. More importantly though Rachel was a superb host. She was extremely kind, approachable, and accommodating. The walk to the beach is literally no more than 2 minutes and it is one of the most beautiful ones I have had the pleasure of experiencing. It's also pretty secluded so it's so easy to relax and vibe out without distractions. If given the opportunity I would 100% stay here again so I recommend Rachel's place to everyone and hope this pushes anyone on the fence to take the leap.

    Alex2017-05-01T00:00:00Z
  • Rachel's place is the perfect place for both business and pleasure. Walking distance to many beaches and wonderful sights but also an easy commute to Waikiki (since you are going against the flow of traffic). Great restaurants and cafes in Waimanalo and easy drive to the sights and eats of Kailua.

    Sue2016-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • This was the perfect place to stay! The setup was really cozy and felt like home. The beach nearby was AMAZING and nice to relax on/swim in (really soft sand and no rocks). The hosts were awesome and really friendly/helpful. Overall, it was the perfect place to get away.

    Chelsea2017-06-04T00:00:00Z
  • My (now) husband and I stayed in Rachel and Beau's unit last week. Their hospitality as well as the property/location exceeded our expectations! During our stay, we were married on Lanikai beach, and we couldn't have picked a better location on the island for our experience. Rachel recommended taking the short (2 minute) walk to the beach to watch the sunrise, and it was so worth it... we went almost every morning! We took several more of their recommendations regarding food, exploring, and activities and were not disappointed. I could go on and on about everything we loved about the cozy cottage and it's hosts! If you really want to experience the beauty of Oahu with the most helpful people to answer your questions, you need to stay here!!!

    Sarah2017-03-24T00:00:00Z
  • I spent 2 weeks at Rachel's place while on a work assignment, and it was absolutely wonderful! Rachel and Beau are very welcoming, and have a cozy, beautiful and impeccably clean home, provided all of the necessities to make my stay comfortable, have a terrific book collection, and an unbeatable location just a 2 minute walk to the most gorgeous beach. I cannot recommend staying here enough! Thanks for everything!

    Courtney2017-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • Rachel ans her husband were great hosts! Our first time to Hawaii and this was the perfect spot away from the tourist traps!! It was so quaint and quiet! Didn't spend alot of time in the cottage but it was perfect for me and my husband. Had everything we needed..and pretty centralized to everything on the island!! First morning there we walked down to the beach to enjoy the beautiful sunrise...waimanalo beach was so far the best beach area I seen at Oahu!! Picture perfect! I would of liked to spend more time there...Rachel checked on us from time to time they were great hosts. There was a great welcome letter and welcome beers!! So excited to plan our trip for next year!

    Angelique2017-04-24T00:00:00Z
  • Staying at Rachel's is a great way to see Waimanalo and its surrounds. Theres plenty to do within reasonable distance and the nearby beach is gorgeous and very quiet. It truly is a short walk away and towels, chairs, boogie boards are in your room if you wish to use them. The room itself is fully self contained, private and comforatble. A washer with provided detergent was a welcome amenity when travelling abroad. We spent an entire day doing activities suggested by Rachel and her partner Beau. They are an interesting and friendly couple to chat with if you have the time. Rachel is a great communicator, responding quickly to any questions or texts etc. Rachel was really flexible with our checkout time which allowed us to maximise our time in Waimanalo. We really enjoyed our stay and would return without hesitiation.

    Waimanalo town is sleepy in general, and includes a handful of yummy eateries.
  • We loved & enjoyed our stay so much and can't wait to stay here again. Kilia was very communicative, welcoming & gracious. Their home was exactly what our family needed. The beach located a few minutes walk from the front door is also one of the best in Oahu!!!

    Cherlyn2016-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • This apartment was just what I needed during my short trip to Oahu. It was clean, private, with big ceiling fans for keeping cool. The bed is very comfortable. A gorgeous and quiet beach is just a short walk down the street. The mountain views from the bedroom are amazing. The apartment is in a great location, just a short drive to many popular spots on the island. Kilia was very friendly, kind, and accommodating. I would recommend this apartment to anyone coming to the island for a short or extended stay!

    Amanda2016-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • We, our two girls (8 & 11 years old), my husband and I, had such a wonderful stay at Kilia's 2-story cottage near by one of the most beautiful beach in Oahu.. Literally, it takes only 5mins walking down to the beach from the cottage.. The cottage is brand new, very clean, well equipped and nicely decorated.... You would instantly feel Aloha spirit as soon as you enter into the cottage.. We also very much liked staying in Wainamalo, located in-between Waikiki and Kailua. It's definitely more local and you can see more natural side of the island..You can enjoy fantastic volcanic mountain view on your back drop and beautiful ocean and beach on your front.. Kilia is a fabulous host and very helpful. My husband and I, we needed a baby sitter one day. Kilia helped to find one and she even brought lots of craft materials for the girls to play with... I cannot say enough about how much we enjoyed staying at Kilia's cottage. We can't wait for our next visit back here... Mahalo Kilia!!!

    Ab2016-10-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely time! The location was perfect; it was an easy walk to a beautiful beach. Lots of activities within a short drive (Honolulu, Hanauma Bay, Diamond Head, etc).

    Melanie2017-03-26T00:00:00Z
  • Everything is as described, except the beach that is within walking distance is more beautiful than expected! It is one of the most lovely beaches I've been on across all the islands. We had a wonderful time there, and Kilia's place is comfortable, clean, and nicely located for exploring this relatively quiet side of the island. Kilia is a wonderful host - kind and warm and very helpful but easy going. I only wish we had more time there! I went with my two children and there was plenty of room for us to spread out and relax. It was a great spot for the first part of our vacation.

    Our unit is an attached house to the main house. 3 bedrooms (8ft. x 9ft.) with 2 twins in 2 rooms(4) and 1 Queen bed in other. 2 full baths about 800Sq. Ft. Taxes will be around 15%. General Excise & Transient Tax (2018) This is the best deal in the Beach lot areas. Just a note, we are not on the beach but just a short 5 minute walk, 1 block away. No crossing any major road ways, traffic to beach extremely light.
    You won't get a better deal for 6 visitors.
    Waimanalo Beach Lots is a quiet laid back community with one of the nicest beaches in Hawaii. Million plus dollar homes on the beach and each street has a beach access. No lock gates & no trespassing signs like other neighbor hoods surrounding us. Like mentioned, your walk on our street is just about 5 minutes and it will open up to a beach that you will want to visit every year.
  • Abe and Nan are very friendly and generous, who made sure that we didn't lack anything. A lovely house close to the perfect beach; all together we had an amazing stay!!

    R2016-07-15T00:00:00Z
  • Abe and Nann are the best hosts. We were welcomed and felt like home. The house is nice and clean, and includes everything we needed. Only steos to the beautiful beach, and we had a great time there.

    lin2015-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • We were greeted by Abe when we arrived and a nice and stocked basket of goodies. The house was just as described, I think its just the perfect size, plus you don't go to HI to stay in the house. The neighborhood was great, we didn't have any issues. The location of this house was great and within walking distance to the beach. We rented a car for the duration of our stay which I think should be recommended unless you are willing to use other modes of transportation. We had a great time and we would not hesitate to re-book!

    Teodor2015-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • very helpful with flexible check in and check out time. Lots of clean towels for guests. Complimentary water and juice upon arrival. Free gears for beach/swimming/snorkeling. AC in every room which is very convenient during hot season. will definitely visit again next time. =]

  • It was so nice to be welcomed by Abe and Nan upon arrival. We loved seeing all the available equipment to use (cooler, boogie boards, folding chairs, snorkeling gear, sand toys, bbq, two outdoor eating areas). It was lovely to have a Christmas wreath outside the door--nice welcoming/ holiday touch in December. Abe showed us around the home away from home and showed us a wonderful basket full of goodies as well as items in the refrigerator--so appreciated having the basic necessities right away, as well as some fun, thoughtful supplies. The location is tops! One block away from a stunningly beautiful beach. We spent hours walking and jogging along the beach, making sand castles, swinging on the swing, and swimming in the ocean. We shopped locally and found it to be quite satisfactory, meeting all of our needs. Thank you, Abe, for scoring us discount activity tickets, providing us local information (e.g. the day Hanauma Bay is closed for maintenance, when the Christmas parade was coming through town, and great places to eat in Waimanalo). As well, we greatly appreciated you driving my mother to the airport, allowing us to continue on vacation mode. Abe and Nan, thank you for your hospitality. Your kindness and generosity helped make our vacation fantastic!!!

    Erica2014-12-13T00:00:00Z
  • Stayed here on work travel and saved about 50% on what we would've paid at hotels for our group. Abe was responsive, approachable, and engaged from the moment we got there. He and Nan truly have humble servant hearts. Would stay here again.

    April2017-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • Abe is very responsive to every question/request we have made. The place is very clean and location is very convenient to all the attractions we want to go. Special thanks for the welcome package. Our flight was delayed and arrives 3 hours later than expected. With the water and bread, it made us feel like home and got through the night.

    Come to a perfect getaway, 100 Yards from one of Best Beaches on Oahu. Perfect place feels like home away from home. Come as our Guests, leave as our family or Ohana.
    Cozy air conditioned suite with private entrance, private bath, porch and parking. Room is fully equipped with refrigerator, microwave, toaster oven, coffee pot or Keurig along with a selection of coffees and teas. Room is also stocked with dishes and pans essentials for making small meals. Rental includes amenities to enjoy a perfect day on the beach such as beach chairs, umbrella, snorkel gear, boogie boards, kayaks, coolers. Enjoy a hot outdoor shower when returning from the beach. You may be greeted by our canine welcoming party
  • This is a comfortable, private little retreat a stone throw from the beach -- perfect for anyone who wants to enjoy a quiet beach retreat in Oahu, especially as the owners offer loans of snorkel gear boogie boards etc etc. the place has a lovely balcony, and we enjoyed their sweet (and quiet) dogs who occasionally dropped by. We booked in Waimanalo as we were going to a wedding there -- there is not much in the town itself that is walkable. We loved the shrimp and steak house and enjoyed breakfast at a local cafe, but would recommend having a car as then it is a short drive to Haunama Bay. Highly recommend for a relaxing, laid back getaway

    Julia2017-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • I wanted a place near a nice beach on the windward side, just a room since I was staying by myself. This was perfect. It is 0.5 blocks from Waimanalo beach which is long and beautiful with scenic mountains all around. The room Tamy provided is air-conditioned and has a mini-fridge and TV. The private porch was really nice in the evenings. She also provides beach chairs, towels, and kayaks. I walked to the nearby fish restaurant for many of my meals. I also had an inexpensive rental car and so was able to hike the trails at Kahana Bay and drive into Waikiki for a charter sail. The wind at the beach was strong: fine for jumping in the surf but too strong for kayaking (I'm a senior citizen). It's a beautiful beach for walking however. Tamy is a great hostess and her dogs are friendly. I highly recommend this site.

  • Really close to beach which was great, great host and very clean and nice room!

    Fanny2017-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • This room is everything described and more! Tamy and Rick have everything covered that you might need from the moment you walk in. The Beach chairs are ready to go sit and watch the sunrise, the Coffee station had dark roast (My favorite), There was tea and honey when my husband got a cold, and some after sun lotion when I forgot to put on my sunscreen. Anything we could think of was covered. The short walk across the street to dip our toes in the ocean led us to a very unpopulated beach. This is an amazing place! Other guests have mentioned that a car is definitely useful here, and we would agree although with the beach nearby and a few places to eat within walking distance, If you don't have a rental car, you can still happily stay here.

  • Beautiful clean private home away from home, look no further you will absolutely love this place! My family really enjoyed the fully equipped cooks kitchen for preparing home cooked meals. And the lay out of the house was great providing ample family gathering areas to sit and share a meal or just chill out and relax. The beds were all very comfortable and we all slept great! The rooms are air conditioned and have ceiling fans which is a huge plus in warm Hawaii weather! The kids enjoyed daily swimming in the pool to cool off and spent most of their time playing outside, which was fantastic! The laundry facility really came in handy for drying all the beach towels ! Overall we couldn't have been happier with our stay at Marina's Place. We look forward to coming back again and again every year for our annual family reunion! Marina herself was a wonderful host and checking in with us via text several times to make sure we had everything we needed. This is a wonderful place for a comfortable home stay so take the leap you book it now you won't be disappointed!

    Michael2017-06-12T00:00:00Z
  • Marina was so super helpful in accommodating our needs. Her place is awesome and in my opinion bigger than the photos portray. We stayed for a month and it felt like home. It was hard to leave!

    Jason2017-10-16T00:00:00Z
  • Marina went out of her way to make sure that my crew staying there for 5 weeks had everything that they needed. She even bought a gas grill for them. We will definitely be staying there when we come back to the island for our next project.

  • Amylynne and her home were perfect. When I arrived, I was greeted by Christina for check in and a cocktail. The place is beautiful, clean and peaceful. My hosts gave me space but where friendly and informative when I wanted to interact. I was looking for a place to have some solitude and a bath (baths are my favorite). This place did not disappoint. The bathroom was luxurious, and the tub has jets! The bed was firm and comfortable. The decor was minimalist which is what my cluttered mind needed. The garden was lovely. I enjoyed my meals on the lawn listening to the birds. I had such a wonderful time; I hope to return again. Thanks Amylynne and Christina!

    Aja2017-10-10T00:00:00Z
  • Amylynne was an extremely gracious and wonderful host. We enjoyed our time at her beautiful home immensely. We needed to extend our stay and she was extremely helpful and understanding as this was our first time using this service. Highly, highly recommend Amylynn's house for your stay!!

    Aloha! Get out of the city and find a peaceful, relaxing retreat on our beautiful organic farm. Come to be surrounded by nature and live on a sustainable property beneath the stunning Ko'olau mountain range. Eat farm fresh and connect with nature. You’ll love our place because of the location, the people, the ambiance, and the outdoors space. Our place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and families.
    You will feel at home in this comfortable studio on our beautiful farm. Morning sun fills the space with an enchanting light. The kitchen is stocked with organic essentials and your cooking necessities (full spice rack, pots, pans, dishware, toaster oven, gas range stove/oven, coffee grinder, french press, coffee and tea, farm fresh eggs and some seasonal produce). We live on an operating three acre organic vegetable, fruit, and herb farm. We will happily give you a farm tour by appointment, but kindly ask that you do not wander without permission (for your safety and consideration of other farm residents).
    We live in the backroads of Waimanalo. Home to many farms and nurseries and local people. We are friends with all of our neighbors. It is mostly quiet, however you will hear horses, chickens, birds, and occasionally cars or farm machinery driving by. For the most part, the natural sounds are dominated by bird songs and the gentle breeze through the trees. If you are adventurous, there are several hikes within walking distance. Our farm stay is a short 5 minute drive to Waimanalo Beach or 15 minute bike ride, and a 15 minute drive to Lanikai or Kailua. We are close to a co-op just down the road where you can find great local products and next door to the co-op is a delicious vegan eatery called Ai Love Nalo.
  • Quaint spot in the middle of the Hawaiian farmland. Fresh mountain air and plenty of privacy. The place is decorated so lovely! The location is 10 minutes away from some of the islands most beautiful beaches and hikes. Sean & Mariah are super friendly and helpful. Their dogs are absolutely adorable! If you're not into the resort touristy kind of vacation then this is the perfect spot to relax and getaway. Loved doing yoga to the sunrise! Oh & bring bug spray if you're not used to being tucked away in the woods ;)

    Kathia2017-03-28T00:00:00Z
  • We simply cannot say enough nice things about this place or Sean and Mariah! Their farm and the guest house is just amazing! The pictures don't do it justice and they are just kind genuine people who are very helpful and generous. The minute we left their farm and arrived in Waikiki we regretted the decision! Their home is close to a beautiful not crowded beach that's just a short drive away. The kitchen is stocked with everything one needs to cook and they provided so many fresh herbs and eggs from the farm! Just an amazing experience overall!

    suja2017-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • This is an incredible vacation spot. The studio and farm awaken all of your senses. The studio is spacious and all of the details really add to the convenience and comfort of your experience. Lots of towels for the beach. Kitchen stocked with cooking supplies - perfect for making farm fresh eggs in the morning. Sean and Mariah were tremendous hosts throughout our experience. Sean came over one night to outfit us with snorkel gear for our trip to Hanauma Bay. Ask for the farm tour. We learned so much about composting and took some peppermint for making some tea. I highly recommend this location - I can't wait to visit again

    Rhiannon2017-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely tropical paradise located away from the noise and crowds yet a breezy 10 minute drive from Kailua with all the shops, entertainment, and food you need if you want to stay out of the hustle and bustle of Honolulu. Felt right at home in this cozy space with beautiful birds, geckos, and chickens roaming the property and it had such a positive and peaceful energy. Palm trees and foliage provided plenty of privacy and the farm is backed up to an insanely beautiful landscape!! Towels, boogie boards, snorkel gear, paddle and surf boards are all provided!! Time to embrace the heat as there is no AC but there are 2 fans and lots of windows :) Don't forget bug spray! Really beautiful beaches nearby with fun waves and beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Highly recommend this place and our hosts were easily reachable and very personable. Would book again!

    Bunny2017-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Best place for a fabulous vacation! The studio is located in the corner of the farm and surrounded by lively green. The room is decorated lovely and well prepared. Fully equipped kitchen, lots of towels and even several kinds of insect repellent. Selected organic bath goods and detergent add comfort to our stay. I'd really recommend to everyone who take a vacation in O’ahu!

    YASUYO2017-04-17T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful stay on a beautiful island.

    Alison2017-07-17T00:00:00Z
  • I wanted to stay somewhere outside of Honolulu/Waikiki and this place was perfect. It wasn't too far away and relatively close (20 mins) to shops and restaurants and was super comfortable place. As someone else noted, it's much bigger/nicer in person. The hosts were wonderful - providing fresh eggs and herbs, plus beach towels, and snorkel equipment to borrow. I also loved their really friendly dogs. I will definitely want to stay here again next time I am in Hawaii. It was the best part of my trip.

    Very spacious 2-bedroom, self-contained, clean, comfortable suite with AC and a large, full kitchen, steps to Waimanalo Beach, the number one beach in America in 2015. Quiet, tropical location with a peaceful, island feel. 40' pool, garden area, parking, secure and gated, laundry. Central to all the must-see spots.
    Set in beautiful Waimanalo, this house has a truly island feel--quiet and tropical, only steps from one of the most beautiful, uncrowded beaches in the world, yet centrally located to quickly get to all the must-see spots around the island. The house itself has been renovated from top to bottom, so everything is fresh, clean, and new, including the 40' sparkling blue pool, which is private and resort-like. The property is private and secure, offering off-street parking in the private compound, as well as street front parking. The house is made up of 6 private, separate suites. Five 1-bedroom suites sleep 2-4, and one 2-bedroom suite sleeps 4-6. This particular suite sleeps 2-6: 4 in beds, and 2 on a queen size sofa couch. There is also an outside laundry room with a coin-operate washer and dryer, outside showers for rinsing off, and we provide boogie boards and beach chairs for the beach, which is just 2 minutes from the suite. Waimanalo Beach offers over 5 miles of white sand, turquoise water, gentle waves, and, best of all, it's never crowded. In fact, you may hardly see anyone there at all! Please note: Price quoted is for one 2-bed suite that sleeps 2-6. Each suite priced individually. Call or email for details.
    The neighborhood is quiet and laid back--away from the crowded city, tourists, and busy streets. Even some of Hawaii's beach side towns that used to be quiet and laid back, like Lanikai and Kailua, are now crowded and busy, with lots of traffic and people. Waimanalo is what those towns used to be like 10 years ago--peaceful, quiet, not crowded or busy, yet just a short drive away from these places so you can go there if you want to. Green and lush, lots of chirping birds and coconut palms--this is a taste of real Hawaii.
  • 1 block from one of the best beaches on the island! It is clean and comfy. 1 bathroom was a bit of a challenge, but was workable. Only a shower, no bathtub. May be hard for families that require a tub for kids. We ended up showering with our 6 month old. The pool was not heated, so the ocean was warmer. Would have been nice to have a heated pool, but my 8 year old didn't mind. It was too cold for my husband and I to enjoy though. Our host Suellen was very nice! I would definitely return!

    Tiffany2017-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Very communicative and already willing to help make sure your stay is a good one! Thanks again

    Brandon2017-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • This is an excellent place to stay! I can't say enough about this place! It is absolutely beautiful, incredibly clean and just a 60 second walk to one of the nicest beaches in Hawaii. The beautiful thing about this place is it's only about an 8 minute drive to Kailua for shopping but it's such a quiet beautiful neighbourhood. Great for a quiet decompressing vacation. Jane is a wonderful host. Upon check in Sue Ellen greets you and shows you around the place and gives you a wonderful rundown of the surrounding area. Not only are you 60 seconds from the beach, you're a 5 minute drive the the Makapu'u lighthouse which is a beautiful hike and about 10-16 minutes from the famous Hanauma Bay where there are hundreds of colourful fish. And again you're about 10 minutes from Lanikai beach with the Moks and Kailua beach. You really couldn't pick a better location. The grounds themselves are equally as beautiful. The pool is pristine and you're surrounded by Hawaiian vegetation, flowers and fruit trees and towering mountains in the back. As you can see, we loved staying here and it truly deserves a wonderful review you can't go wrong picking this place!

    Alicia2017-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Minutes to the beach which is quiet and no crowded at all. The pool is nice and some toys are available to use. They also have chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards for the beach. The kitchen is fully stocked with kitchen appliances and cooking tools, including a coffee grinder - a real plus! Good location, definitely felt off the beaten path but only 20 minutes to Kailua where there are more restaurants and Whole Foods.

    Danielle & Kevin2017-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • The house is exactly as described: very nice and cosy. The beds are comfortable and the kitchen area well equipped. We came with small kids and everything was provided (high chair, baby beds, beach toys). The access to the pool area is protected by a gate (very safe). The host was welcoming and available when we needed anything. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood and the beach access is only two minutes away by walk. The beach is beautiful. We will come back.

    Marc2016-09-05T00:00:00Z

    George2017-04-02T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed here for a week and we absolutely enjoyed our time here. The cottage is great, a bit smaller than we expected but the amenities that it comes with, the close proximity to the beach, and the deck/jacuzzi makes up for it. I spent about an hour or 2 every night lounging on the deck or relaxing in the colorful hot tub. Waimanalo beach is legit just a short walk away which was awesome(the beach had great waves for boogie boarding). There is a security system installed on the house which added a level of comfort a regular locked door doesn't have. Although I did wish there was a way to lock the gate leading into the property. The cottage also had great internet speed which was nice. The only issue we had was on the first day when we were checking in to the property we couldn't contact the property manager, but we actually kinda enjoyed showing ourselves around and getting acquainted with the cottage and the area. Sherry, who we were in contact with, was very nice to us and had let us know there was an issue with the phones that night as well. All in all I would definitely recommend this location. Great location, great amenities, and great little vacation home.

    Alfred2017-05-31T00:00:00Z
  • Cute home and nice location. This place is not in a major tourist area so it's quite and has easy beach acces. It was perfect for our group of 4 adults and one toddler. Plenty of baby gear was provided which was helpful for us.

    Kim2017-04-21T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I had a great time staying at this cottage. Perfect size for a small family. Gilles was very accommodating and also provided us with baby toys and play pen. The house was fully stocked with ziplocs, foil, bbq equipments, beach gears etc which was very helpful. We loved spending time on the lanai at night grilling bbq and listening to the waves.

  • I cannot recommend this place enough. The location is amazing if you're interested in being steps away from a beautiful, non-touristy beach. The kitchen is so well stocked, we ended up eating several home cooked meals on the lovely, private deck while the sun set. The washer and dryer were an absolute luxury, and the hosts were so fast to respond to our every question and need. I can't wait to return!

  • We had a great time at Chris' place. At first we were a little concerned about not staying in a mainstream place like Wakiki, but our concerns were gone the moment we got there. We had access to several beautiful and not crowded beaches and a pretty instant access to main highways to get around the island. Chris and Mari were very helpful and answered promptly when we needed. Their place is fully equipped and we had all we needed. Hi-speed internet worked great and the pool table provided great entertainment after we spent the days at the beaches. We were there in four adults and one 7 yo, and the place was spacious and pleasant to stay. This was my first Airbnb experience and I couldn't be more satisfied.

Here is a summary of what I loved: - Perfect location, 1 min drive to sherwoods / bellows beach, 10-15 min drive to Kailua - House is really large and spacious - We told him that we were travelling with our baby, and he provided a really nice crib. This was huge. - Kitchen is fully stocked, with everything you'd need to cook a meal (pots, pans, cooking utensils, spices) - Provided a Keruig coffee machine, and standard coffee machine with an ample amount of k-cups/coffee - Provided extra beach towels, linens - Left gear for the beach! Boogie board, football, volleyball, cooler, etc. - TV had cable, and a guest netflix setup and ready to go - Chris was extremely responsive.

    Beautiful newly furnished and refreshed 3 bedroom, 2 bath home ready for you and your family to come relax and enjoy the beauty of top rated Waimanalo beach. Only STEPS to the gorgeous white sandy beach!!!!
    The house has a surrounding deck and must be accessed by using stairs. Two of the bedrooms as well as the kitchen provide an awesome ocean view. All bedrooms have ceiling fans and open windows allow for a nice ocean breeze.
    The neighborhood consist of many local families that have lived in the community for many years. We kindly ask our guest to be respectful of the neighbors, the beach (please do not leave your trash behind) and on the road.
  • Excellent house. Not overly appointed but just right. Quiet neighborhood, close to Safeway and Whole Foods, constant ocean breeze and fabulous beach a VERY short walk down the street. Amazing mountain views from the porch. Plenty of extras for the beach. We would definitely stay again.

  • We absolutely enjoyed our stay at this home. Perfect for our family of 8 that included children and elders. The neighborhood is conveniently located to mouth savoring local restaurants and shops. The views from the patio around the house are amazing. The family friendly beach was a minute walk. No need to drive anywhere else. Our neighbor was very friendly and helpful. The house itself has been recently redecorated with everything a family would need. New cookware, kids games, beach supplies, guide books, towels, soaps, laundry supplies, and bedding. The yard is amazing with a beach shower that comes in very handy. I could go on and on. Simply a great vacation home.

  • Our family of 7 stayed here for 2 weeks and we loved it! Lindsay did an excellent job of describing the place, so we knew exactly what we were getting and had a wonderful time. We absolutely LOVED being so close to the beach and the kids loved the boogie boards and sand toys! It was a fantastic place with amazing views of the beach and mountains. Lindsay was always prompt to respond to questions and helped make our stay very comfortable. Thanks again!

  • This home truly met our expectations, it was nicely decorated and comfort level was noted. Beds were so comfortable! Loved how close the beach access was and appreciate all the beach toys/supplies readily available. Highly recommend this place and would love to return one day.

  • Lindsay home is definitely walks away to the most relaxing, beautiful beach. Our family of 8 fit perfectly in the home. The spacing of the whole house is perfect for our kiddos to run around. Lindsay was very responsive when we had troubles with the garbage disposal. The furniture was new, Lindsay gave us a heads up about it as well. Overall, Lindsay home made our stay 10X better. Our family would love to stay here again when we come back!

    Beautiful spacious private studio with abundant light and air, for those wishing a peaceful stay. Ideal for long and short term vacations and personal retreats. Hosting travelers and "serving Aloha" since 2008. Originally from San Francisco, Hawaii resident for 20 years.
    Our promise to you: a spotlessly clean, spacious, comfortable suite, minimalist in decor, accurately represented by photos. This ground level corner unit is situated in the back of a pristine gated property. Relax in the big tropical garden, kept cool and shady under mature fruit trees. The location is peerless: just steps from the very beach rated #1 in the US. We offer quality, thoughtful amenities, privacy, peaceful ambiance, a friendly welcome and warm aloha.
    It does not get more authentically "Hawaiian" than Waimanalo. Experience Hawaii like a local.
  • Our 6 days at Hale 'Nalo in Waimanalo were simply wonderful. The apartment and the property are even better than the description. Every detail is perfect. We haven't had the chance to meet Herlinda, but Wayne and Sophie were wonderful hosts. Finally the beach of Waimanalo is in our opinion one of the best of Ohau. We are really looking to be back in Hale 'Nalo. Aloha and mahalo to Wayne and Sophie (and Herlinda for creating and sharing with us this little piece of paradise).

  • We stayed four nights in a garden suite. It was immaculately clean and our hosts, Wayne and Herlinda, were very helpful and provided everything that we needed. The fresh home-made cookies were a nice personal touch. We greatly appreciated the use of a washer and dryer to clean our clothes as well. This is a great location close to the beach that provided secure parking and privacy. Next time we will stay in the upper suite, the Zen Treehouse.

  • Rarely does a service exceed my expectations, Herlinda's Airbnb did just that! My wife and I had the pleasure of spending 15 nights here and we could not have been more satisfied. We had stayed at the Hilton in Waikiki earlier in the year and were looking for something a bit less touristy for this trip. I was hesitant to book such a long stay here sight unseen but I am so unbelievable happy we did! After a long day of travel we arrived and we were greeted by Wayne the caretaker and Herlinda (who are probably the friendliest people I have ever met)..seriously! Wayne showed us around the property which is amazing, meticulously cared for and even closer to the most beautiful beach than we had imagined. Our suite was spacious, comfortable and immaculately clean. EVERY amenity we could ever need was provided. Each morning my wife and I would have breakfast outside of our room in the beautiful garden to the sound of the ocean and tropical birds, it was the most amazing way to start our day! We could not have been more satisfied with our stay, we will most certainly be recommending this place to our friends and family, my only regret was not being able to stay longer, thank you so much for the amazing experience! ~Alex & Sarah.

    Alexander2016-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • Herlinda and Wayne were wonderful hosts and the room I stayed in was perfect. She even baked me cookies! I couldn't have asked for a better stay! The location is steps from a beach and what a beach it is. I would recommend them to anyone.

    Matthew 2016-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • The place was absolutely perfect for my wife and I on our honeymoon. The place is just a couple houses from a beautiful beach on the east coast (way better than Waikiki in my opinion). This house is in a quiet neighborhood very different from Waikiki and you will need a car to get around, but that is exactly what we wanted. The place has everything you need to cook simple meals and even a grill out back. The yard is gorgeous to sit in and very private even considering it is shared with the second unit. Wayne is super helpful and friendly.

    Ryan2017-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • Wayne met us as we arrived ready to welcome us and to show us around. He was very friendly and hospitable. Our studio was well appointed in every detail and very clean. The neighborhood was quite and it was only a very short walk to an incredibly beautiful beach. Snorkel gear, chairs, umbrellas, towels, and chairs were readily available to use as needed. The backyard provided a beautiful place to relax with birds chirping away. I would recommend this place in an heartbeat without hesitation.

    Molly2016-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • If you want to spend time in real Hawaii, out of the loud/noisy city, this is your spot. Herlinda isn't anything less than the most gracious, sweet and honest host. She accommodated us when our trip plans changed, and even had fresh bananas from her garden waiting. This home is absolutely perfect for a private stay, very quiet neighborhood and all the lush beautiful Hawaii you could ever look at. Within walking distance, you have one of the top beaches in the US, some of the best local BBQ you'll ever try, and not a far drive from snorkeling over reef with sea turtles! We couldn't have been more happy, and I promise if a nice relaxing quiet time is what you're after, you'll never regret staying here. Thank You again Herlinda. - Derek and Cait

    Derek2017-06-05T00:00:00Z
  • Herlinda was an outstanding host! She made sure we were comfortable, and also offered great recommendations for local restaurants and sightseeing. We especially enjoyed the beautiful gardens on site, the free parking, and of course Sophie (the K9 welcoming committee)! The beach and snorkeling gear were a thoughtful touches, too. If you're looking for a quiet, secluded spot that is steps from a gorgeous uncrowded beach, Herlinda's place in Waimanalo is a great place to be!

    Newly renovated and now with full, quiet, split air conditioning. Nestled directly across from one of the most beautiful 'undiscovered' white sand beaches on Oahu, Paradise Found Beachside Suite offers peace, tranquility and rejuvenation. Paradise Found Beachside Suite sleeps up to three or four people. This private entrance suite has a main bedroom with a queen sized bed, a sun/living room with a fold out full size bed (good for one adult or two petite adults), a kitchenette, and a full bath.
    Waimanalo Beach is a spectacular stretch of white sandy beach with a length of nearly 5.5 miles, making it Oahu’s longest beach. Although it is a popular sun-bathing and swimming beach, because of its length and location away from the crowds of Waikiki, it’s one of the most uncrowded, pristine, and tranquil beaches on Oahu. Best of all, this beautiful beach is only steps away. Our suite is located directly across a very quiet (residential) street from the beach. Beach access is directly across the street and only steps away. The ocean can be seen from our front yard. Although the suite is attached to our house, it is a separate unit that has its own private entrance. We have two small dogs that stay outside and are very social and good with people. NOTE: This is a full, private suite, and not a single room with common shared areas as are some other listings in our neighborhood. This is a private suite with 2 main rooms, a separate kitchenette room, and a large bathroom. You also have use of our large back and front yards too.
    Great neighborhood for walking, jogging, bicycling, meeting the neighbors, etc. Walking distance to McDonalds, 'Ai Love Nalo (five star healthy restaurant), Waimanalo Market, Serg's Mexican Kitchen, Ono Steaks And Shrimp Shack, Hawaiian Island Cafe, Bobby's Groceries, 7-11 and Post Office. And great beach too, of course, right across Laumilo Street!
  • Great apartment, location and host. You won't regret coming to Brian's place.

  • Karin's place was huge and nice. Loved beautiful garden and kitchen. Beach is just 1 block away. Quiet and beautiful neighborhood.

    SunYoung2016-04-09T00:00:00Z
  • I very rarely write reviews. However, this particular experience warrants some feedback. Every single thing about Karin's place is exactly as advertised, if not better, and that's all I will say about that. But more importantly, there were a few times I needed to ask her something (incl once very early in the morning), and she always answered her phone (or text), always handled my question flawlessly, and always did it with aloha. Perfecto!

    Dave2016-06-16T00:00:00Z
  • The location is amazing! Right by one of the most beautiful beaches I’ve ever experienced. The place was just as we expected and had everything we needed.

    Laura2017-10-10T00:00:00Z
  • Very close to a semi private beach, nice place.

    Todd2017-10-16T00:00:00Z
  • Great location. 3 houses from the beach that we personally call the 'wedding beach'.

    Katrina2017-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • Karin is very nice and helpful. loved the neighborhood and the proximity to this beautiful beach is a big plus !!! We enjoyed our stay at this space, nice and clean, good beds, good cooking utensiles and a lovely garden ideal for a couple or a family of three

    Carlos, Sami, Fre2016-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • Karin's place is just a 2-3 minute walk from a wonderful beach. Down the road is a great beach park and just past that are two other public beaches that have a great break for surfing and snorkeling. Nearby there are a handful of inexpensive but very tasty restaurants (Ono's Steak and Shrimp is fantastic). Down the road (if you have a car) there is Kailua, which has all of the major names that one would know from any US neighborhood (Safeway, Target, etc...). Our family really enjoyed our time here.

    Charley 2017-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • Everything in this place was far better than the photos. Thank you Karin for great memories.
