About the Property
Spacious Studio, 1 bath, Sleeps 2. Close to beach.
Hale Moana has interior teak and bamboo furnishings which rest on a cool, quartzite slate tile floor. Private parking & entry to a 750+ square foot studio and lanai. The interior also has a vaulted ceiling with skylights and plenty of light throughout. Gas two-burner cooking inside and a gas BBQ grill outside. 39' TV. Wifi - password provided.
Once settled in at Hale Moana, you will be a few delightfully sandy paces to beautiful Kailua Bay and Kalama Beach with views of Flat island, the Mokulua islands (Moku Nui and Moku Iki), outer islands (sometimes Molokai and Maui are visible in the distance) and wonderful sunrises too on our East facing, windward side of the island. Listen to the birds, ocean and breezes...
Many happy visits and repeats. Aloha for now!
Booking directly with me will save you a little on HomeAway/VRBO service/CC/reservation fees. If you wish to pay via CC, these fees will be charged by HA/VRBO.
Feb. 2016: A new law is in effect as of January 2016 which gives the city more manpower to stop vacation rentals operating without permits. There have been no permits issued since 1989. I am the owner/operator of a short and long term rental (mostly short term) - of an attached unit - at my home. I have run this small business for about 14 years with a desire that the city open up the permitting process to me and those like me. This new law is a serious push to shut down vacation rentals on Oahu; it remains to be seen how things shake out over the coming months with the City's enforcement, property visits, cease and desist letters and groups and individuals reporting to the City on rentals.
Update, late March 2016: Those opposed to the actions of the C&C of Honolulu regarding short term rentals have hired a law firm which is requesting the C&C stop their aggressive actions against short term rentals on Oahu.
Feb. 2017: Ongoing issues with B&B's/short term rentals/transient accommodations in the City and County of Honolulu. The C&C has issued my rental business a new tax ID number and continues to accept my tax payments. My visitors continue to enjoy and return to my Hale Moana.

Guest comment: 'This vacation was paradise, not at least because of this great place to stay! Though Germany is far, far away - we would love to come back and we will. Mahalo for everything (we will miss all the flowers!) N&T
Guest comment: 'We absolutely loved our stay here! Your place is so cute and we loved all the art and Hawaiian touches. Thank you for your hospitality & for the rose petals & lei - a very sweet touch. Our wedding was absolutely wonderful as well. We will certainly return & recommend your place to our friends. T&K

A majority of short term rentals on Oahu, especially Kailua, operate without a permit as there have been none issued since 1989. Legal action against the C & C is expected.

Why the Owner Chose Kalama Tract, Kailua, HI, USA:
This home was built for our tutu, Moana, in 1939-40; it was one of the first houses in the neighborhood, when the streets were paved with crushed coral. Moana married and moved to Kailua, from Waikiki, to raise a family of three. The older generation remained in Waikiki, in the family home there, until the mid '50's. We built onto the main house in 2003 to create what is now our studio, Hale Moana. We hope you enjoy the space we've created as much as our guests, friends and family members do.
