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 Waimanalo Beach

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.

Nicely decorated garage guest room with good access to Honolulu and southeast coast

  • 2 of 5

This rental is a nicely decorated and spotless clean (incl. cleaning fee) garage guest room. The area is suburban and offers a good access to Honolulu and its sights. The room is rather small without a closet so prepare to arrange your bags. We recommend snacks only and to dine out as there is no inside table and one use for all sink (dishes/handwash, etc.).

Please note that the location circle and the information that you only have a few steps to the beach does not mean a beach front location, it is in a quiet side street with a 2-3 minute walk to the beach with a wonderful scenic view!

If you are the first time on Oahu and plan to explore from early morning until late evening this is a good starting point with nice restaurants close by. If you have to manage also rainy days then it might be worth to check your options.

We have not met the owner or experienced the Tiki Bar so we can not rate this, therefore a solid star for cleanliness and a strong star for decoration and the wonderful bed.

Overall we feel that the value for price ratio might not be in the top ranks and would prefer for a future stay on the island a beach front location with a nice view to have an all day Aloha experience.

Just as Good The Second Time

  • 5 of 5

We made a return trip to Waimanalo for Hopu Ka Lewa 2017 (the large Ultimate Frisbee tournament just down the road) and once again this rental was exactly what we needed (especially after a few inches of rain drenched everything around over the course of a few hours). Where the other 200+ participants had to deal with flooded tents, crowded showers and huge expanses of mud, we were able to show up when we needed to be there, retreat to warm and dry conditions when we didn't, and get a good night's rest. Bryce being awesome and the nice public beach access down the road was just icing on the cake. We hope to be back again!

This unit is very nice. The view is beautiful, to sit outside drink coffee looking at it in the morning was wonderful. Just a short walk to the nicest beach I have ever seen. Clean and it was almost like having a private beach to ourselves. The people we met were very nice and offered places to visit that were not tourist traps.Bruce was very nice and welcoming the time we met him. We will definitely be making a return to this wonderful getaway.

Dream vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy with our location!

It was the perfect spot to relax and get away from the hussle and bustle. We were close to some awesome local restaurants like Morning Brew, and a delicious Mexican place Sarge's. Be sure to order a Pina Colada! Being vegan and vegetarian the island had quite a few amazing restaurants.

The room was perfect! And Bryce was great! Even allowing us to check out a couple hours later so we could snorkel Right Down The Street!! One last time. Plus the beach was right around the corner! We watched the sunrise 5 times!

Looking forward to staying with Bryce again in a few years!
