About Kalia Kalama

I grew up in Waimanalo and raised my 3 children there as well. Our family enjoys Surfing, Kayaking, Boogie Boarding, Sailing, Fishing and long walks on the beach, we love and respect the ocean and we hope you and your family will enjoy this beautiful home as much as we do! We feel blessed to be able to spread the ALOHA and share this special corner of paradise with guests from all over the world!

Kalia Kalama purchased this house in 1972

Why Kalia Kalama chose Hawaii Kai

My family and I cherish 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, Hawaii!

What makes this house unique

See our REVIEWS! These homes are rare gems because of the location, semi-private pier & sailing catamaran plus the amazing amenities, VIEWS & home :)

Fantastic location and spacious

  • 5 of 5

The setting is truly spectacular with beautiful views both morning and evening. The long dock is great, the little beach is great, and the snorkeling is very good (even by Hawaii standards). We were visiting for 10 days around Christmas with our 3 grown children and their partners and we spent every morning and evening enjoying the serenity and beauty from the large porch.

It is also fairly private; there may be other guests renting the smaller neighboring houses and a few outside folks walked up the rocky shore to visit and take photos from the dock.

The house itself is spacious, clean and comfortable with two complete living areas and kitchens up and down stairs. The younger set in our group could hang out in the lower level, play cards, cook, eat, etc. as late as they wanted and never bother my wife and I sleeping upstairs. The furnishings and finishes are casual and somewhat dated, but quite comfortable for a relaxed visit. There was more than enough space for our 10 days with 8 adults and all couples had bedrooms. The three full bathrooms and full washer dryer made the stay easy and comfortable. The kitchens were well-stocked and the upstairs dining table was just right for 8 adults so we cooked and shared most of our dinners as a large family. The provided snorkel gear was appreciated. We were tempted to rent kayaks but ended up doing that up the coast a bit.

The location on the southeast coast of Oahu was also very convenient for site-seeing. Fantastic overlooks were just around the corner to the west, and long calm beach within 1 mile to the northeast. Honolulu was about 40 minutes away and the North Shore about an hour.

The house is right on the busy loop highway which generates more road noise than we would have liked, noticeable mainly inside the house but almost not perceptible on the porch and beach. It also means you can't walk anywhere; you have to drive.

The owners checked in periodically and were helpful and available without being intrusive. We did not have a chance to take Mike up on his sailing offer.

All and all it was an amazing place to stay.

Wonderful option for large families

  • 5 of 5

We had a family of 8 adults and 8 kids, has both this property and the Honu Cottage next door. It was just the right amount of space for everyone. The property is well maintained and has just about everything you need for a relaxing stay. We also appreciated that it is gated and secure. Beach access was perfect, snorkeling great, and the ride on the catamaran with Owner Mike was fabulous.

Fantastic location in a dramatic landscape.

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 8 from Australia and were so delighted with our stay in this magnificent location . The views and the comfortable surroundings were enjoyed so much by all of us, we were sad to leave but so happy to have had this experience away from the business of Waikiki. We hired cars and explored the rest of the island. Thankyou and we would definitely recommend this destination to our friends. The house was clean and had everything necessary to enjoy your stay.

Your front yard!
Car: recommended

Our homes offer the best of both worlds: old Hawaiian style cottage living with all the modern amenities needed (plus more!). There are 3 homes on this stunning and spacious Waimanalo property.

We provide authentic island style accommodations right on the beach, away from the hustle & bustle of Waikiki. We are in the small country town of Waimanalo, but are still just 15 minutes to Kailua Beach & Lanikai Beach, 25 minutes to Honolulu Town & Diamond Head, 45 minutes to Pearl Harbor & a 1 hour drive to the infamous North Shore. Waimanalo is home to one of the World’s most beautiful beaches as well as a few locally owned & operated restaurants & shops.

When you look out your window or step out onto your lanai (porch); you’ll see a heavenly view of Rabbit Island & the infamous Waimanalo ocean blues plus the majestic Ko’olau Mountain Range! Stroll down to your front yard & hunt for sea glass & seashells because you are ON the beach…

Enjoy your morning coffee (we recommend Hawai’i-grown Kona) & sunrise on our private pier, on one of our hand-made benches or even on your lanai (porch). Be sure to be on the lookout for our Hawaiian sea turtle ohana! The endangered “Honu” aka Hawaiian Sea Turtles love playing in the crashing waves of the Pacific…

During winter months (December to March) keep your eyes open for Humpback Whales!

Waimanalo Beach offers some of the SAFEST swimming & MOST SUPERB snorkeling in the Hawaiian Islands! The natural reef & plentiful native corals & fish provide protection to our coastlines & a plethora of color under the sea, sure to captivate you & your family… Some favorite guests seen from our pier include: the State Fish; Humuhumunukunukuapua’a & State Mammal; the endangered Hawaiian Monk Seal. We provide snorkels, fins & masks plus fishing gear upon request.

Waimanalo Bay Beach & Makapu’u Beach, both world-renowned for body surfing & are two of Oahu’s top boogie boarding beaches for beginners, are less than 2 miles from our Beachfront Villas PLUS we provide boogie boards for your use so you’re all good to go!

We LOVE our FREE CONCIERGE services from SeekSpot! Ask us or our SeekSpot Ohana about:
