Well Equipped Light and Airy Suite- 1 Bedroom with Private Bath (Sleeps 2)
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
Tamy purchased this Studio in 2004
Why Tamy chose Waimanalo
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. In 2009 this place was remodeled with a "Green Build" design. 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 Night Blooming Jasmine will fill your room. Each suite provides all the comforts of home with a private hotel style bath. Three extremely friendly dogs (Charley, Koa, or George) and a Kitty named Billy will be happy to welcome you when you arrive and may visit you everyday during your stay.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
We enjoyed our 5 day stay in the Orchid Room! Tamy and Rick thought of every need we might have and provided it -- from the coffee pods for the 2 person Keurig to snorkel equipment and boogie boards for the beach. Those and more amenities, along with the lovely grounds and hot outdoor shower, made our Oahu vacation memorable and fun!
Great place to stay.
We had a great stay with very gracious hosts. Room was more then comfortable with all the amenities we could want. Beautiful yard...easy and short walk to the beautiful beach. We certainly would recommend staying here to any and all. Every morning we were awakened to the sound of the ocean.....absolutely wonderful.
Perfect Country Getaway
This private suite is the perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki’s city lights. Come here for a quick 30 second walk to the beach and then relax in garden paradise. It was nice to fall asleep to the running water and cool breeze. Tamy has been the perfect host, welcoming and kind. Not only do you get all of your creature comforts here, but a home away from home feeling as well. Mahalo Tamy!
Perfect place to relax!
This was the perfect place for us to relax. The studio room is attached to the main house, located on a beautifully quiet street. The room was comfortable and very clean (the pillows were my favorite!). The room is provided with a small fridge, microwave, an assortment of dishes and silverware and other amenities for the guest's convenience. The Waiamanolo beach is a very short walk away. The sands are beautiful, the water is perfect!! It is a little bit of a drive from Honolulu, but so worth it! I would highly recommend this studio room!!
This was a lovely place to stay. A beautiful cozy room with everything you need.
We really enjoyed our stay. It was perfectly located with an easily accessible beach across the street. Our sweet cozy apartment was just right with everything we needed for our stay. Also there was secure parking. Our hosts were welcoming and accommodating without being imposing. We were only there for 3 nights but I wish we had stayed longer. Such a beautiful home and garden with a gorgeous fountain and fish pond. I really hope we return.
Third stay still a charm
My third stay in the Orchid suite was a great as the last two. Beach access is across the street with super sunrise views that I can't get enough of. Rick and Tamy are gracious hosts who make you feel at home by treating you like family (Ohana). My stay was during the full moon and I was invited to attend the Moonrise Mele party they have with neighbors on the beach to watch the full moon rise while enjoying pupus, drinks and good company. The room is welcoming as well and comfortable with access to a living room area and a comfortable sofa. It is so peaceful there that it was easy to put in some time for work that I needed to do as well as relax. The Waimanalo location was far enough away from the city for a more country feel but close enough to enjoy the town. Aside from a battery failure in an appliance in the room which Rick addressed right away, the worst thing was that the time to leave came much too quickly.
