Guestbook comments from the owner
(4-Star Review as posted on TripAdvisor www.tripadvisor.com/hale_nalo)



We stayed in the Treetop suite at Hale Nalo in June 2014 and had a wonderful visit.



On one side you have the beach, which is just 200 yards down the street (easily walkable even when carrying a chair and boogie boards) and the other side you have the mountains.



You have 2 porches so you can sit and enjoy either or both.



The beach has plenty of sand, small waves and is not crowded at all.



The location is ideal for accessing Sandy Beach, Hanauma Bay or Kailua. It was only 30 minutes to Honolulu too and we didn't have to fight the crowds there.



Our host was very welcoming with lots of good suggestions for hikes,shopping and restaurants. Be sure to try Sweet Home Waiamanalo for delicious salads and sandwiches. It's within walking distance.



The home has boogie boards, beach chairs, ice chests and towels you can borrow when you want to head to the beach.



A few things to note.

1. There is no oven or stove in the suite, so keep that in mind when planning meals in. There is a hot plate and an outdoor grill though.

2. The suite will accommodate 3, but is really set up for 2 as there are only 2 chairs at the outdoor dining table and 2 stools at the bar.

3. Don't let the first house on the street throw you. It's not an accurate representation of the neighborhood. We found it extremely quiet and safe.

4. The apartment does not have air conditioning, but even in June, we didn't need it. Lots of cool breezes coming off the water.

5. It rained almost every evening, but by morning it would be clear and sunny.

6. There were guests below us in both apartments, but we didn't hear a peep from either. Noise wasn't a factor.



Overall it was a very pleasant stay and we would gladly stay here again.

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 baby boomers looking for a relaxing retreat and rejuvination of body and spirit. Namasté.

RELAXING IN PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Hale Nalo was the most relaxing vacation experience we could have asked for. We stayed in the Zen Tree House, which is a spacious, fully equipped and beautifully designed studio apartment situated one half block from the beach. We enjoyed the early morning on our private deck watching the dawn light illuminate the green volcanic peaks of the Pali, sipping robust Kona coffee and eating delicious local papaya and other local delicacies provided by our gracious resident host, Herlinda. We would then walk a few steps to Waimananlo Beach, which is certainly one of the most beautiful stretches of white sand and turquoise water in the Hawaiian Islands. We would spend the day sunning, swimming, reading, and just relaxing into the quiet beauty of this place. At some point we would rouse ourselves to walk a few steps to one of the nearby take-out ktichens offering a wide variety of simply-prepared, but tasty food, ranging from barbecue to seafood to vegetarian dishes. We fell asleep each night listening to the sounds of the ocean. Hale Nalo is a refuge for adults who are looking to get away from the noise and chaos of modern life and to spend a few days in a natural paradise. We highly recommend it.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind sentiments. Yes, Hale Nalo (Waimanalo Home) was designed to provide exactly what you came looking for: a lovely, quiet and sensually calming place which invites one to really and truly rest, situated just a few steps from a gorgeous beach and the beautiful warm azure waters of the Pacific, but close enough to essentials like good eateries. We enjoyed hosting you and hope you can come see us again whenever the time is right. Aloha, HN

ZEN GUESTROOM AND HALE NALO MADE US FALL IN LOVE WITH OAHU

  • 5 of 5
We travelled to Oahu in the second week of May 2014. We had been to other Hawaii islands before but this was our first trip to the island of Oahu. Before the trip, we had heard all sorts of things about Oahu such as how commercialized the place is and that it is not worth the cost if you had visited other islands. But we wanted to visit all Hawaiian islands at least once before we made up our mind and our stay at Hale Nalo rental certainly made our trip worth.

The place is less than 100 steps away from the beautiful Waimanalo beach. The beaches on the eastern Oahu (windward side) are all beautiful but the Kailua bay area and the stretch of beach until Waimanlo are just majestic. Hale Nalo location is not too far from Hanauma bay (one of the best free snorkeling spots) and Waikiki. It is also 5 minutes drive to Kailua downtown, home to some great eating options and a must-not-miss Thursday farmers market.

We had rented the Zen suite which is on the second level and it has got a great open layout with a decent size kitchen, living and a large master suite with a beautiful master bath. The master suite has a very comfortable king bed. Living room has got a small tv + dvd. Herlinda (our host) maintains a great collections of evergreen movie DVDs and books.
Kitchen is equipped with all basic things such as coffee maker, portable hot-plate, toaster, refrigerator and plenty of pots/pans and plates. The unit does *not* have a dishwasher.
The unit has 2 patios on either side of kitchen+living room. One of the patio has a decent size gas grill and we even helped ourselves with a BBQ day.

Downstairs are 2 other guest rooms and common living room and a common laundry area with washer/dryer. There is parking space for only 3 cars (1 per guestroom) but you could park outside the house. There are plenty of free-to-use beach chairs, coolers, body-boards and snorkel gear available.

Herlinda and Sophie (her lovely pet) were great hosts. Herlinda would meet us every morning and answer all our touristy questions, recommend places to eat and made a great eatery suggestion of "Sweet home Waimanalo" (we highly recommend that place). She even brought us freshly picked cherry tomatoes from her garden.

All in all, it was a great stay and we would definitely come back here next time we vacation in Oahu.

Owner's Response: Aloha! We're so pleased that you decided to visit our island! Yes, some folks feel Oahu is all "built up" which sadly indicates they did not manage to venture beyond Honolulu.

Oahu is a big beautiful magical enchanting unique Hawaiian island, the majority of which remains undeveloped, but it also happens to house Honolulu with its world-class museums, theatre, fine dining, shopping, within an easy 30 minute reach should you so desire. If not, stay here at our quiet unspoiled beach, listening to the birds, napping by the ocean, watching the palms grow. A world away, and the choice is completely yours.

We're so delighted that you found the ZEN Treehouse to your liking and comfort, and we'd love to see you again, anytime.

LAST AND BEST STOP OF OUR HONEYMOON

  • 5 of 5
The Zen Treehouse is unreal, it's even bigger than the photos make it look. The kitchen is huge, the bathroom is huge and beautiful, the shower is AMAZING! We were so happy we decided to splurge on this for the last week of our honeymoon. Waimanalo beach is the best beach in Oahu as far as I'm concerned. It's quiet, calm and you can walk for hours along it!
The tree house is only cooled by fans but there are extra's in the closet. Heat sensitive seniors may want to beware, but we were fine with the fans.

GREAT SPACE FOR RELAXING TIME

  • 5 of 5
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.

GREAT COUPLE'S GETAWAY

Great Couple's Getaway
  • 5 of 5
Although I have visited Oahu a dozen times over the last two years, this was the first time my husband and I stayed in Waimanalo. We typically stay on the N. Shore and drive over Waimanalo to visit our favorite non N. Shore beach. Both my husband and I loved staying in the Treehouse. It is virtually brand new, beautifully decorated and impeccably clean. We didnt see one bug, ant or cockroach in the unit during our entire stay!!!! Anyone that has spent time in Hawaii knows it is virtually impossible to keep the bugs out so it is truly an amazing feat was accomplished. Herlinda is a wonderful hostess and knows how to make a great first impression. Fresh fruit and chocolate awaited us as well as some sparkling cider and enough coffee beans to last a couple weeks. The kitchen did not have a stove or oven but a small cooktop and toaster oven was provided as well as a small bbq grill. All the necessities were provided including all the toilet paper and paper towels one could ever need. I have stayed at places that provided a single roll of TP and expected renters to purchase additional. She also provided everything we needed for the short walk to the beach and they were all in like-new condition....towels, chairs, cooler. Nothing looked like it came from a garage sale or a flea market. The neighborhood was quiet and the home is truly a one minute walk to one of most beautiful beaches in the world. This rental is a little more on the expensive side but for anyone that appreciates quality it is worth it. We will definitely be staying there again!
