I've always liked to travel and explore. As a kid, if I wasn't hiking to, and camping in, places I should not have been, I was riding my bike to places too far from home for a girl on her own. As an adult, I've continued this proud tradition by taking off to far away places as often as I can (photo: Ring of Brogar, Scotland).

The Owner purchased this studio in 2008

Sailed across the entire Pacific Ocean on a 29' sailboat. This took a few years. I saw gorgeous beaches all along the way. Started in San Diego (US), south to Cabo (Mexico), across Polynesia to the Great Barrier Reef. Many beautiful beaches. I choose to live at Waimanalo Beach because the color of the water and the incredible mountain views take my breath away each and every day, and, living in Hawaii, I can get Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia. Can't beat that.

Hale 'Nalo is an intimate getaway located in a gorgeous unspoiled tropical beachside setting. Simplicity, quiet, solitude, ocean, birdsong for those looking for a relaxing retreat and rejuvination of body and spirit. Namasté.

Peaceful, easy feeling

  • Submitted: Apr 10, 2014
  • Stayed: Feb 2014
{5-Star review posted on TripAdvisor www.tripadvisor.com/hale_nalo}

The heart and soul of the owner is embedded in this retreat. Herlinda has made peaceful, easy feeling a reality ½ hour from Honolulu. You enjoy total isolation and have a best friend next door. If you are looking to unwind, you have found the place. Brud

We have been fortunate to stay at many “luxury” resorts in our life, but this one has them all beat! If you are looking for a place to totally relax, or have a jumping off point to other locations on Oahu, this is for you. Herlinda is the perfect hostess. I have never eaten a banana fresh off the tree, and I will never feel the same about them from this point forward. Every recommendation she gave us was spot on and her lovely spirit is all around Hale ‘Nalo. You will love it there. If I could, I would rate it a 6 star! We are definitely going back! Debbie

Room Tip: The ZEN Treehouse is casual luxury at its best.

Great space for relaxing time

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 8, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
This is a wonderful space to come to for a relaxing and quiet time in Hawaii. The unit is spacious, clean, well-equipped, and, most of all, enjoyable. Just a five-minute walk from the beach. In a quiet neighborhood. Herlinda is very respectful of your privacy, but also right nearby ready and willing to deal with any questions or concerns that come up.
Recommended for:  Age 55+, Romantic Getaway
Owner's Response: Thank you for your kindness. It is so satisfying to see guests totally relax, as you both did. Please come again soon, and for longer ;0) We're just a puddle jump away. Warm aloha. HN

Like Going Home, But Better

  • Submitted: Mar 5, 2014
  • Stayed: Dec 2013
(5-Star Review as posted on TripAdvisor www.tripadvisor.com/hale_nalo)

"Like going home, but better?", you say? Well, imagine being able to have all the perks of going to Hawaii (i.e., the beaches, the sun, the big city <Honolulu> when you want it, the country <North Shore or Makaha> when you want it, the tourist stuff <when you want it>, and the ability to be local <when you want it>) and not have to be in a big high rise hotel or in the hustle and bustle of Waikiki - it's all nestled in a safe, quiet little neighborhood on the Eastern shore of Oahu. That's Hale Nalo.

Market Maven J pretty much covers the long list of things you can do in/around Waimanalo/Hale Nalo and some examples of how your homey hostess Herlinda is so gracious and considerate of all who stay there. Herlinda is chock full of helpful hints (i.e., places to go, things to do/see, where to eat - e.g., the local farmers market - with great locally grown produce - including organic produce, local eateries, and even local entertainment) and she has her own interesting life story and how she got to paradise.

My wife and I, and our teenage, stayed for a week during the Christmas holiday and it would be hard pressed to have had a more relaxing vacation in paradise without being filthy rich and staying in the ""Robin Masters Estate" (for you old enough to remember Magnum PI, that was the "estate" in which the show took place, and it happens to be nearby).

As noted in other reviews, Hale Nalo is a block from a beautiful, quiet beach principally visited by locals (and others smart enough to stay off the beaten path - aka Waikiki). Islands magazine calls Waimanalo the best summer beach, but I'd don't think that qualifier (i.e., "summer") is necessary. It's a beautiful, quiet, uncrowded beach.

The kitchen is nicely appointed and has all you really need (don't be a high maintenance gourmet or kitchen tool snob and you'll survive), the furniture is comfortable, there is wi-fi (though, really, unless you're looking for island info in the middle of the night <Herlinda can tell you anything you need//want to know>, don't get on the computer - you're on vacation!!!!!), there's a BBQ, 2 lanai's, and a flat panel TV with DVDs (though, I think the thing was turned on once in a week, and only at night).

All you need are you swimsuits, some sunscreen, a hat, and a willingness to leave all your tenseness at the Honolulu airport. You can pick it up when you return to the mainland, if you really miss it.

The setting was perfect. Two minutes to the beach, no hotels in site, quiet, great dining anywhere from 5-15 minutes away, great beach, wonderful and helpful host/owner. My sister, daughter and I had a great stay and would return in a hearbeat.
Owner's Response: We loved having you! So nice when guests return with their family. Aloha!

“The Way Hawai'i Should Be”

“The Way Hawai&#039;i Should Be”
  • Submitted: May 20, 2013
  • Stayed: May 2013
(Posted on TripAdvisor www.tripadvisor.com/hale_nalo)

If you are looking for a glitzy vacation in a hi-rise hotel with service staff available for every desire, this place is not for you. If you are looking for a location "at the center of it all," this place is not for you. If you are looking for a Disney-esque vacation spot to bring your kids, this place is not for you.

I didn't want any of that. I wanted privacy, a taste of the real Hawaiian lifestyle, and a well-appointed, quiet room away from the bustle of the city where I could work, study, and enjoy a few days off. I got all that and more in my 4 nights at Hale Nalo.

I can't express my satisfaction adequately in a review. Herlinda greeted me at the gate and gave me the briefest introduction to the room - perfect since I'd just flown 8 hours and wasn't at my best. The sign of a great innkeeper is knowing when to leave you alone.

Authentic Hawaiian food may be found at Sweet Home Waimanalo and L&L Barbeque, and many other establishments. I don't think anywhere in Waikiki is remotely similar. This is what Hawai'i should be.

I didn't use it even once, but there is a TV with cable service and a DVD player. The room includes a full kitchen, which I did use frequently (read the instructions for the induction hotplate - it really works well!), and the most comfortable bed - I haven't slept so well in years. I was impressed with Herlinda's commitment to the environment - hybrid car, solar panels, instructions for recycling, and natural products throughout.

I didn't take any time off work to come here, so I was up at 3AM the first two mornings, working until 11AM. The Wi-fi was flawless and fast. After that, a little lunch and I was off to my scuba diving sessions to prepare for my Open Water certification. If you've done it, you know how much studying is involved. Hale Nalo was the perfect setting for that - birds, breeze, no interruptions.

I am giving Hale Nalo 5 stars in every category. I don't do this lightly, but I feel Herlinda has earned this and I hope you will decide to book at Hale Nalo and experience it for yourself.

Room Tip: I would recommend The Zen Treehouse.
