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 special corner of paradise with guests from all over the world!

Kalia Kalama purchased this House in 1972

Why Kalia Kalama chose Waimanalo Beach

My family and I cherish 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, Hawaii!

                                                                        April Elaine Y.

                                                                        My family and I loved the convenience of being right on the beach. There were so many amenities and the hot tub was a hit! Even when it rained, the house was large enough to keep us entertained for more than enough time and the covered lanai was a very popular place to hang out with an awesome view.

                                                                        A wonderful, relaxing place

                                                                        Mike P.

                                                                        We had four families stay here and let's just say it was far more enjoyable than a hotel would have been (cost was roughly the same). We spent so much time looking at stars, walking on the dock (only one in all of Oahu from what I can tell) and generally staying away from the touristy areas (which were easy to access when we wanted to get to them). Fantastic place, and hopefully we'll be able to return someday

                                                                        Owner's Response:

                                                                        Aloha To The Pacchione Group,

                                                                        It was a great pleasure to have you stay with us at Beachfront Villas. It is truly "paradise" the way you want it...from the sunrise to sunset into the starry nights and the canoe sail. I enjoyed meeting you all and trust your return home was peaceful. Beachfront Villas would like to extend a fond Aloha and may your return be soon.

                                                                        From us all at Beachfront Villas.....

                                                                        Aloha Until We Meet Again


                                                                        Beachfront Villas

                                                                        Fantastic location and spacious

                                                                        Lawrence T.

                                                                        The setting is truly spectacular with beautiful views both morning and evening. The long dock is great, the little beach is great, and the snorkeling is very good (even by Hawaii standards). We were visiting for 10 days around Christmas with our 3 grown children and their partners and we spent every morning and evening enjoying the serenity and beauty from the large porch.

                                                                        It is also fairly private; there may be other guests renting the smaller neighboring houses and a few outside folks walked up the rocky shore to visit and take photos from the dock.

                                                                        The house itself is spacious, clean and comfortable with two complete living areas and kitchens up and down stairs. The younger set in our group could hang out in the lower level, play cards, cook, eat, etc. as late as they wanted and never bother my wife and I sleeping upstairs. The furnishings and finishes are casual and somewhat dated, but quite comfortable for a relaxed visit. There was more than enough space for our 10 days with 8 adults and all couples had bedrooms. The three full bathrooms and full washer dryer made the stay easy and comfortable. The kitchens were well-stocked and the upstairs dining table was just right for 8 adults so we cooked and shared most of our dinners as a large family. The provided snorkel gear was appreciated. We were tempted to rent kayaks but ended up doing that up the coast a bit.

                                                                        The location on the southeast coast of Oahu was also very convenient for site-seeing. Fantastic overlooks were just around the corner to the west, and long calm beach within 1 mile to the northeast. Honolulu was about 40 minutes away and the North Shore about an hour.

                                                                        The house is right on the busy loop highway which generates more road noise than we would have liked, noticeable mainly inside the house but almost not perceptible on the porch and beach. It also means you can't walk anywhere; you have to drive.

                                                                        The owners checked in periodically and were helpful and available without being intrusive. We did not have a chance to take Mike up on his sailing offer.

                                                                        All and all it was an amazing place to stay.

                                                                        Owner's Response:
