                          Sweet Home Waimanalo

                          Car: Recommended

                          Beautiful location just steps from Waimanalo Beach, 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.

                          Year Purchased: 2008

                          About the owner: Took a few years off to sail across the Pacific Ocean on a 29' sailboat. Saw gorgeous beaches all along the way: from San Diego south to Cabo San Lucas (Mexico), to the Marquesas and westward to the Great Barrier Reef. So many beautiful beaches, but I choose to settle in Waimanalo because, well, honestly, the blue of the ocean and the incredible beauty of this island takes my breath away each and every day.

                          Why the Owner Chose Waimanalo Beach:
                          Authentic small-town Hawaii. The most gorgeous beach in the world, but you'll have it to yourself most of the time. Experience Hawaii like a local! One guest said 'We arrived as 'guests', but when we left we felt like family'. My wish for all who come :)

                          The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
                          Hale 'Nalo is an intimate beachside retreat located in a beautiful tropical setting. Three self-catering independent studio units, newly constructed in 2008. Simplicity, quiet, solitude, ocean, birdsong. Aloha, Namasté, and Welcome!
