Property description

Absolutely perfect for a restful retreat, this beautifully appointed, spacious studio apartment is in pristine condition (built in 2008 and lovingly maintained since completed). This studio has a well-equipped kitchen, a huge bathroom (a lovers’ shower roomy enough for two), a sleeping area that can double for a personal sanctuary, a comfortably open adjacent living area with very comfortable and supportive seating, and two decks - one facing east, one facing west - perfect for morning coffee and moon-rise.

PEERLESS LOCATION: mere steps to the “Best Beach in the US” (Dr. Beach, May 2015). Our property is so close that you can stroll there in about one minute, and at night, you’ll hear the gentle sound of the ocean. If you love the beach, you will be thrilled by this beach and our location.

We promise: a spotlessly clean, beautiful, comfortable suite that is accurately represented by current photos, situated safely on a well-cared for property just steps from a world-class beach, first-rate amenities, privacy, peaceful surroundings, friendly professional guest services, and a truly warm welcome.

Worth a mention: the 14-foot high vaulted ceilings make our suites an exceptional value, given they provide copious *additional* space, enjoy the abundance of breath, light, and comfort. Also, the serene décor and open views, as well as being situated at “treetop” level has earned this beloved suite the nickname “treehouse”.

Convenient location: what is available walking distance, and nearby: Waimanalo is an authentic Hawaiian residential community, famous for its beach and sleepy no-rush vibe, horse stables, tropical plant nurseries, and support of non-GMO organic food production. A good local supermarket is nearby, and four good locally-owned restaurants (Hawaiian-style plate lunches/dinners, a popular Mexican restaurant, a terrific breakfast and coffee cafe, and an exemplary Vegan restaurant, all of these are within easy walking distance). Also nearby is our Waimanalo Co-op which specializes in locally-grown: organic produce, clothing and gifts; a McDonalds, Jack in the Box and Subway.

Waimanalo is centrally located but off-the-beaten-path, make easy day trips to everywhere on Oahu.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: I've always liked to travel and explore. As a kid, if I wasn't hiking to, and camping in, places I should not have been, I was riding my bike to places too far from home for a girl on her own. As an adult, I've continued this proud tradition by taking off to far away places as often as I can (photo: Ring of Brogar, Scotland).

Why the Owner Chose Waimanalo Beach, HI, USA:
Sailed across the entire Pacific Ocean on a 29' sailboat. This took a few years. I saw gorgeous beaches all along the way. Started in San Diego (US), south to Cabo (Mexico), across Polynesia (Marquesas, French Polynesia, Tonga, the Cook Islands, Fiji, New Zealand); ended this particular trip by sailing the entire length of the Great Barrier Reef. Of the many beautiful beaches I’ve seen, I choose to live at Waimanalo because the color of the water and the incredible mountain views take my breath away each and every day. Plus I get to live in Hawaii, a place with the beach and easy availability of Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia. Can't beat that.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
We have on property three magnificent, fully-independent studios: the luxurious ZEN Treehouse (900f²), and two very lovely Garden Suites (each at 400f²). All share, along with the caretakers cottage, a beautiful gated private property. Our guests enjoy simple yet elegant accommodations, thoughtful amenities, weekly housekeeping, spacious tropical gardens, and exemplary guest care. Hale ‘Nalo is deal for those seeking a quality extended stay, solitude, an unspoiled world-class beach, the warm aquamarine ocean, cheerful birdsong and play, fitness/yoga, perfect for mature singles and couples.
