Guestbook comments from the owner

(5-Star Review as posted on TripAdvisor www.tripadvisor.com/hale_nalo)



Very private romantic lush tropical cottage setting, far away from uber-tourista Waikiki. Peaceful and calm...just steps from the very uncrowded and beautiful Waimanalo Beach.



Our rental unit was incredibly well appointed with all the kitchen items you could ever need ....plus complete access to lots of beach equipment This includes masks, snorkels, fins, beach chairs, umbrellas, etc.



The best part is the hosts themselves...Erlinda and Wayne...the warmest, friendliest owner-innkeepers that you could ask for. Perfect for honeymoons and anniversaries. Hope to return one day. I give it 5 stars, only because that is as far as the rating scale goes!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

I could not imagine staying in beautiful tropical Hawaii in a hotel or high rise. This wonderful B & B is set in a lovely tropical garden which is a great place to bird watch. Since it is 3 houses from the beach, you can enjoy your jet lag by greeting the sunrise on a perfect sand beach with few visitors and a great view.

The reviews before mine have said it all, great garden, wonderful spacious rooms as pictured, supplies laid in, kitchen and outdoor barbecue set up and a warm host who feels like a friend immediately. Making my own breakfast was a plus for me with my gluten free diet. I've been to many, many B & B's and this one is at the top of my list of favorites

PARADISE FOUND RIGHT HERE AT HALE NALO

  • 5 of 5

This neat and tidy studio is the perfect place to relax, after a wounderful day on the nicest,and quietest beach in all of Oahu. Herlinda and her friendly dog helped to make our anniversary a week of happiness in paradise. Wakeing to the sound of the surf and birds singing in the AM is awesome,enjoying a cool drink in the beautiful back yard at sunset, life doesn't get any better then that. All the things you need for a great vacation are at your disposal, the pictures don't lie. We would not hesitate to come back to Hale Nalo paradise found. Marty & Millie.

Charming, private suite

  • 5 of 5

What a find this was; reasonably priced, well equipped, well run and a great location. We really had fun using this private suite as our home base to explore Oahu. Waimanalo beach is steps away and beautiful. Wayne had everything one would need to fully enjoy it; beach towels, umbrellas, chairs and snorkeling equipment (which we used at Hanauma Bay--gorgeous). The suite was spacious and had outdoor access to a peaceful, lovely private yard. The well stocked kitchen area was the perfect size and so handy. We didn't want to leave!

Peaceful and serene Hawaiian bungalow

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I took our first trip to Oahu together, and scored this awesome gem in Waimanalo! We rented the garden studio and it is perfect for a party of two! Plenty of space, your own private (ground) balcony, a nice updated kitchen with all of the amenities you need. In addition, they provided all kinds of gear for the ocean from snorkel masks, umbrellas, chairs and more. The house is nicely tucked away, literally a minute walk to the beautiful beach of Waimanalo, and is really quiet. Parking is free, easy and nicely secured in a gated driveway. Wayne was awesome to work with, such a pleasure to communicate easily and quickly, we had everything we needed with our late arrival and early departure. We'd definitely stay here again and highly recommend this place to any couple looking to enjoy the east side of Oahu. It's nice to get away from the madness of tourists down in Waikiki, and an easy drive to all the great local spots and other beautiful beaches. Mahalo, Wayne for making our stay memorable and a great vacation!

Relaxation in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent time at Hale Nalo celebrating our 25th + 2 wedding anniversary. This was our first time in Hawaii and we could not have picked a better place. Wayne was an incredible host and the location was fantastic just a few steps from beautiful Waimanalo beach. Several great eateries in Waimanalo Beach and nearby Lanikai, Kailua and Kaneohe. The accomodations were great and we will definitely be back as quickly as we can.

Good find

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I spent 8 days at Hale Nalo in one of the garden studios. We had originally reserved a hotel room near Waikiki but then learned about VRBO and changed our plans. We were glad we did. The property is located in a neighborhood and away from the noise and traffic in Waikiki; it was incredibly clean and offered all the amenities you would need. It is located very close to the beach and has beach chairs and coolers to use. If you like Poke, which is basically Hawaiian seasoned sashimi, then you have to try it from the local grocery store called Shima's.

Owner's Response: We too are glad you changed your plans KN. We do offer a wonderful alternative to the hustle and bustle of Waikiki (although stopping in at Duke’s for a Mai Tai just once...) and yes! Shima’s is the new best-place-for-poke! When we go whale watching (November - May) we get read-to-eat poke bowls from Paina Cafe and watch from close-by Lanai Lookout! If Oahu is on your itinerary, please come and stay, we’d love to see you again!

Car: recommended

Beautiful location just steps from Waimanalo Beach (aka Angel's Bay), named by FORBES Magazine to be the #5 Best Beach in the USA (2013) and ISLANDS magazine 'The World's BEST Summer Beach' (June 2010). Perfect for quiet getaways or fun explorations of Oahu. Easy day trips to anywhere on the island.

Minutes from Makapu'u Point (photo), known for its breathtaking views, picturesque lighthouse, walking trails, and whale watching (winters). A few minutes further is Hanauma Bay - a nature preserve where you can enjoy incredible snorkeling. Enjoy hiking, sailing, or a relaxing day on the beach. Easy drive to Waikiki, Honolulu, Northshore,...anywhere on Oahu really.

Other Activities: swimming with dolphins in the wild... reading a book on the beach with a big cold drink...kayaking, shelling, hiking, bird watching...

Golf: There are seven golf courses in our local area! Pali, Koolau, Olomana, Hawaii Kai, Turtle Bay, Waialae.... this is a golfer's paradise.
