About The Owner

We are extremely blessed to live in Hawaii and want to share it with people who can appreciate the beauty and aloha Hawaii offers. We have lived on the island for 15 years and consider this home. We are blessed to live in such a wonderful community, an incredible place to live! We invite you to experience the joy we feel every morning when we wake up in paradise.

The Owner purchased this studio in 2005

Why The Owner chose Oahu

There are many things to do on the Island. Waimanalo in our opinion is one of the most beautiful places to live. Waikiki is approximately 35 minutes away. Beautiful beaches are within walking distance. Sea Life Park only 5 minutes away, Olomana Golf Course 5 minutes, shopping, dining and more within 5-10 minutes.

Good beach access

  • 2 of 5

On the plus side, the studio is nicely furnished. I especially liked the shower, which has a subterranean feel. Plentiful towels. It was very quiet. The most beautiful beach in the world is just down the street.

On the negative side, our stay coincided with a heat wave. The studio has a fan and an a/c unit. The a/c unit rattles and we had to turn it off to sleep. Very small windows and no cross ventilation. The mattress is lumpy and needs to be replaced. The sheets are old and not good quality. The entire property looks a bit forlorn.

clean, great location, quite neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

The room was clean and the property is in a fantastic location 5 doors from the beach. They provided beach chairs, towels and even buggy boards and a cooler. Very nice for a couple of nights stay in a basic clean small room. If staying longer you may want a little bit bigger of a place that there is room for a chair and table to sit at, but great for the purpose we needed it for.

Amazing place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This place was everything we needed and so close to the most beautiful beach. Thanks so much for opening your home! Directions were easy to follow, we appreciated the binder of information on places to eat and things to do on the island. The place was clean and beautiful. If we ever make it back to Oahu we will definitely stay here again if it's available!

Simply Perfect

  • 5 of 5

The owners are amazing! Bryce and Melissa were extremely helpful in helping us find the little treasures of Hawaii that the books don't tell you about- like the macadamia nut farm! The place itself is super cozy, comfy bed, great bathroom, and includes all the little necessaries of a high end hotel. No need for a kitchen because the tiki bar and grill are at your service. There is also a washer and dryer as needed.

The property is about about a 45 second walk to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, and being on the East side of the island allows for a more native experience. This property is perfect for any couple who doesn't plan on spending time in doors. And, with all the money you save from the great price, you can have that many more adventures!

Sorry Bryce and Melissa- it took me five years to write this review. I still remember you guys breaking out the champagne when we told you we were expecting. Thanks for some serious lasting memories!

Simple and Cozy

  • 5 of 5

The room was much smaller than I expected - but looking back at the photos, they are pretty accurate in depiction. It's not fancy and there aren't many frills, but it's perfect for someone who needs a nice, safe, comfy place to sleep and who plans to spend the majority of their vacation outside exploring. Less than a minute walk to the beach wth a gorgeous view of the mountains behind. The tiki bar outside is also super adorable and Bryce is SO friendly and accommodating. Definitely recommend.
