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!

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.

A wonderful, relaxing place

  • 5 of 5

We had four families stay here and let's just say it was far more enjoyable than a hotel would have been (cost was roughly the same). We spent so much time looking at stars, walking on the dock (only one in all of Oahu from what I can tell) and generally staying away from the touristy areas (which were easy to access when we wanted to get to them). Fantastic place, and hopefully we'll be able to return someday

It is truly "paradise" the way you want it...from the sunrise to sunset into the starry nights and the canoe sail. I enjoyed meeting you all and trust your return home was peaceful. Beachfront Villas would like to extend a fond Aloha and may your return be soon. From us all at Beachfront Villas..... Aloha Until We Meet Again Kalia, Beachfront Villas

Great spot!

  • 5 of 5

The location and house were fantastic. Far enough out to be peaceful but only 15 minutes from restaurants and shops. The pier is a great spot to see the sunrise. We will definitely be coming back!

This was an outstanding location for our first family trip to Hawaii.

  • 5 of 5

My wife wanted to plan the perfect trip to Hawaii for our kids and grandkids. We traveled from Indiana with 6 adults and 6 grandkids. We loved the place from the moment we pulled into the drive. The view was spectacular looking out at the dock and Rabbit island. The house beautiful, when everyone walked into the house we saw that it was going to be plenty big for all of us. My wife and I took the upstairs master bedroom, my son and his family were also upstairs and my daughter, her husband and 4 kids settled in downstairs. This arrangement work great for the 10 days we were on site. The place had everything we needed for a wonderful stay. The kids loved the hot tub, while my son and I enjoyed fishing from the dock with the equipment that was provided at the house. We also had boogie boards and snorkeling equipment that was kept in a organized storage area behind the house. There was enough equipment for the entire family and for all sizes young and old. Snorkeling at the house was very good as we saw many fish and even a sea turtle.

It was great waking up to the beautiful view every morning, so peaceful and relaxing. We really enjoyed the location as it was close to everything since this house is just off the main road. I think we visited most of the sites on the island, but the highlight of everyday was coming back to the house for a relaxing evening. The kids loved playing in the yard, hammock and tree house. My son the chef, even cooked out on the grill for us.

We met the owner, Mike a few times during our stay. However I think we were tooo busy to take him up on the offer for a boat ride. He and the property manager were very nice and helpful. They made sure that we had everything we needed for our stay. We liked the site because it was very private. The small beach right outside was a good place for the kids to play and wade in the edge of the ocean. Just a short walk down the beach was the perfect place for the smaller kids to swim and play. The town down the road was also a place for the grocery store and a couple of great restaurants.

This location was perfect for the most wonderful and relaxing family vacation we have ever been on together. This site proved to be a great choice and definitely added to our enjoyment of the island.

Thanks to Mike for opening his place to the Miller and Hudson families from Dec 29, 2016 - Jan 7, 2017. We enjoyed a great family vacation and hope to make it back some day. Mahalo!

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!
