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 unique 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 the community of 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, Hawai'i :)

Decent snorkeling right outside with great snorkeling just down the beach at Kaiona beach park. Plus the cottage includes tons of masks, snorkels flippers, etc. We didn't need our own gear. Outdoor shower and hot tub really hit the spot after snorkeling sessions. Great local supermarket with fantastic poke bar at Shima's. Lots of restaurants 15 minutes away at Hawaii Kai. Very fun farmer's market 15 minutes the other direction at Kailua. Close enough to Honolulu if that's what you want while far enough away if you don't.

                                                                          Stunning property with the best views

The hammock and swings were great for relaxing and the beach access was perfect. The house slept 6 of us great and the kitchen was nice and big. We felt very welcomed at the property and kalia made sure we were taken care of. I can't imagine a better place to stay. We will be back!

Central to all we wanted to see yet secluded and private. The owner was always gracious and accommodating. Thank you for making this such a great visit.

We were quick to respond to any request that they had.

One of my favorite moments of our entire 2 weeks in Hawaii was watching the sunrise on at the end of the pier. The house is clean and well maintained. Any issue we ran into (coffee pot not working, being stuck in house due to crazy rain storms) were addressed immediately (games and new coffee pot delivered within hours). Vicki is an amazing care taker and the only bad part of our stay was the shortness of the time we had there. Would love to return.
