We absolutely love Hawaii and our special home in Waimanalo. We appreciate how blessed we are to be here and we want to share the gift of this beautiful community with others. We dreamed of one day returning to make Waimanalo Beach our permanent home after serving over 20 years in the Armed Forces. This dream became a reality because of our Hanai ('adopted') Grandparents (both Pearl Harbor survivors) and their family - it is through their love, support and generosity we are living our dream today. Our Grandparents had deep family roots in Hawaii stretching back to the 1880s and we look forward to sharing their story as a living legacy of the love and Ohana that anchors the true spirit of this place we call home
Rick purchased this Studio in 2004
Why Rick chose Waimanalo Beach
While dating, we stayed in a rental just down the road and it was our dream to come back and open our own rental. After a lot of sweat, tears, hard work and determination we were able to make our dream into a reality!
What makes this Studio unique
Our rental is located 100 yards from one of the most pristine five mile stretches of beach on the island. Rarely crowded, it will feel like your own private beach. Recently remodeled, our rental was designed by a 'Green' certified architect. The layout and design of our home captures both the sun rays and ocean breezes for the best natural lighting and cooling effects. Ceiling fans help to provide extra air flow so there is not a need for air conditioning. Soft colors add a warm and inviting feel to each room. The yard is a garden oasis. You will enjoy a variety of local trees, flowers and greenery. When blooming, the scent of Jasmine will fill your room. Each suite provides all the comforts of home with a private hotel style bath. An attached den (common area) offers a place for quiet leisure activities. Two extremely friendly outside dogs (Koa and George) and a Kitty named Billy will be happy to welcome you when you arrive and may visit you everyday during your stay.

We enjoyed our stay very much. Tamy and Rick are the model of Aloha. The accommodations are clean and very comfortable. The porch is a wonderful place to sit and enjoy their well planted, beautiful yard..
just right for us!
My husband and I spent our last three nights on Oahu in this lovely spot. The room is very clean and perfectly set up for a comfortable stay. The bed and linens were incredibly comfy! There is a common room but we really didn't spend any time there as we had a sweet little lanai all to ourselves. The common room is set up with a coffeemaker that we made very good use of(thanks for that!) as well as a toaster over. It's a perfect setup if you plan to get take out as it would be difficult to really cook meals here. I reheated the coconut shrimp(Ono's Steak and Shrimp Shack is a must!!!) in the toaster oven and picked up a salad at Shimo's and we enjoyed our meals on the lanai. There is a small fridge so we could keep some breakfast stuff in there.
The beaches here are stunningly beautiful although it was a bit windy and cool while we were there so we didn't get in the water. We took a drive down to Hanauma Bay and it was hot and sunny there so got some snorkeling in. My husband is a non swimmer but he could just walk into the water and see tons of fish, big ones too!! We did the walk up to Makapuu lighthouse, the views up there are spectacular! Even when it's too windy to go in the water, it's great fun to watch the surfers and body boarders on Sandy Beach.
We highly recommend a stay here, Tamy was very welcoming and it was just a very safe and comfortable spot for us! Thanks!!
This place was everything we needed and more. Beautiful setting, quiet and can't say enough great things about Tamy an Rick. Supper friendly, helpful with recommendations and make you feel welcome. Highly recommend this place. We hope to return someday. MAHOLO Tamy and Rick
Beautiful oasis for sure!
RIck and Tamy's orchid suite is indeed an oasis, far removed from the party side of Oahu. Evenings on the lanai were the best - a peaceful garden setting close enough to the ocean to enjoy the distant roar of surf, but remain protected from the winds. Suite has everything needed for a comfortable stay....sufficient cooking gear for light meals (electric grill was great for fresh fish, but mostly we got prepped dinners from Whole Foods in nearby Kailuah and just made breakkie and lunch), very comfy king bed with lovely linens, and a compact bathroom. We didn't bother showering indoors because it was a treat to be able to shower outdoors. We didn't get to use the beach toys (there are many)as we were there at a very windy time, but loved being able to pop across the road for long walks on the beach or some body surfing. At times we had the whole expanse of beach to ourselves. I must also thank Rick and Tamy for their kindness in helping us freeze some provisions for our forthcoming sailing trip. A lovely, restful place to vacation!
Beautiful, clean, perfect location
We loved our stay here and can't wait to go back. The room was quite, clean and comfy bed. The beach was perfect and just steps away. Can't wait to go back
Beautiful stay & great hospitality
We had our wedding in the beach right across the street from the room. Ricky married us and assisted with the reception which was held in their gorgeous backyard. Tamy and Ricky were outstanding and so helpful during our entire stay. At night you can hear the ocean so clear. Such a stunning vacation location.
