Why Kalia Kalama chose Hawaii Kai
My family and I cherish the community of Waimanalo and the ability to get away from the city and enjoy the peacefulness of the countryside, unwind on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world and still be minutes away from great restaurants, shopping, the cinema and all major Hawaii attractions. Mahalo nui loa for visiting Waimanalo, Hawai'i :)

Charming Bunglaw with Incredible Views
Makapu'u is a 2 bedroom 2 bath traditional Hawaiian bungalow right on the oceans edge with unobstructed views for miles. This charming bungalow is like stepping back into time with modern amenities. There is a large modern and updated kitchen as well as the main bathroom. The first thing when we pulled in the driveway were the views! It doesn't get any better than this and you are right on the edge of the ocean. From the covered patio or the large windows across the front of the house there are views! We spent the majority of our ten days here sitting on the patio watching the whales. We even had a monk seal swim right up to us one day and we watched him from the edge of the property. Beach towels, beach chairs, snorkel gear, beach toys for kids are all available in the sheds provided. I heard there was some update in snorkel equipment planned and we mentioned to them that items were broken. The management of this property is very accessible and I am sure if we asked for some other snorkel gear they would of accommodated us. Makapu'u and the other two houses that are a part of this compound have their own small beach and pier. The houses and the gardens are maintained beautifully with pride of ownership. Makapu'u is the last and most private of the three houses. It has it's own little fenced yard and vegetation landscape that provides privacy while on the patio and the hot tub (which also has views of the ocean!) You do share a driveway and parking area with the two other houses, but since this house is the last of three on the drive, no one comes into your yard. We met the couples and families that stayed in the other homes and found everyone to be friendly and great neighbors. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked. The owner of the properties (Mike and his dog Kawala) usually come by once a day to check on things like the hot tubs and any other maintenance items that need to be done. Because of his attention to his properties is why they are in such great condition. I should also mention they have top notch cleaners and it was spotless inside too when we arrived. Mike has a catamaran anchored out front, I highly recommend asking him about booking a sail out to Rabbit Island. Mike is an expert sailor and his family has lived on the Island for generations. He is very knowledgeable and very entertaining! There is noise from the road traffic behind the house so don't expect complete tranquility but this house is absolutely worth it!
Mahalo for your kind words! You were an absolute joy to have as our guests, and we love how you treated the home as your own! I hear rumors you may be back again :) we certainly hope so!
We are currently replacing a lot of our snorkel gear and as well as one of the hot tubs.
Safe travels and we look forward to another visit.
Vickie & the Beachfront Villas O'hana
Everything we wanted for a comfortable, beautiful, and fun vacation.
The setting is breathtaking. The cottage is well equipped. Decent snorkeling right outside with great snorkeling just down the beach at Kaiona beach park. Plus the cottage includes tons of masks, snorkels flippers, etc. We didn't need our own gear. Outdoor shower and hot tub really hit the spot after snorkeling sessions. Great local supermarket with fantastic poke bar at Shima's. Lots of restaurants 15 minutes away at Hawaii Kai. Very fun farmer's market 15 minutes the other direction at Kailua. Close enough to Honolulu if that's what you want while far enough away if you don't.
Stunning property with the best views
We loved every minute of our stay. The property is a dream come true! The hammock and swings were great for relaxing and the beach access was perfect. The house slept 6 of us great and the kitchen was nice and big. We felt very welcomed at the property and kalia made sure we were taken care of. I can't imagine a better place to stay. We will be back!
It is alway a pleasure hosting gracious and fun loving groups. They were exceptional, and kept the home in great condition as they enjoyed their vacation.
It will be great to have them again!
Perfect introduction on our first ever visit
We don't believe we could have chosen a better place to accommodate our first visit to Hawaii. Central to all we wanted to see yet secluded and private. The owner was always gracious and accommodating. Thank you for making this such a great visit.
We are always glad to be of service to guests we are hosting. Being available 24/7 is comforting for them. We welcome any and all inquiries to local attractions.
They were conscientious in keeping the vacation home in great shape upon departing. This is greatly appreciated.
This beach house boasts many amenities you just don't get with typical resorts or other rental properties... privacy, personal beach and pier, an amazing viewpoint of the ocean and surrounding islands, a local owner, Mike, who really wants each guest to enjoy their island experience (even offering boat tours on his "one of a kind" sailing vessel!
The house was full of island character and charm, yet was well equipped with modern touches, large bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen, ...enjoy the hot tub with a drink or let the sun shine upon you while you dine on the huge lanai all while you listen to the waves crash against the breakers.... truly an awesome place to stay on Oahu and truly beyond expectations!
Amazing Views-Wonderful Stay
We came on Christmas Day and had a short 3 night stay. The yard and views were amazing. One of my favorite moments of our entire 2 weeks in Hawaii was watching the sunrise on at the end of the pier. The house is clean and well maintained. Any issue we ran into (coffee pot not working, being stuck in house due to crazy rain storms) were addressed immediately (games and new coffee pot delivered within hours). Vicki is an amazing care taker and the only bad part of our stay was the shortness of the time we had there. Would love to return.
Thank you for your kind words. At Beachfront Villas we strive to care for the guests immediately . It was a pleasure to meeting you.
