Car: Recommended

Our homes offer the best of both worlds: old Hawaiian style cottage living with all the modern amenities needed (plus more!). We provide authentic island style accommodations right on the beach, away from the hustle & bustle of Waikiki. We are in the small country town of Waimanalo, but are still just 15 minutes to Kailua Beach & Lanikai Beach, 25 minutes to Honolulu Town & Diamond Head, 45 minutes to Pearl Harbor & a 1 hour drive to the infamous North Shore. Waimanalo is home to one of the World’s most beautiful beaches as well as a few locally owned & operated restaurants & shops.

When you look out your window or step out onto your lanai (porch); you’ll see a heavenly view of Rabbit Island & the infamous Waimanalo ocean blues plus the majestic Ko’olau Mountain Range! Stroll down to your front yard & hunt for sea glass & seashells because you are ON the beach…

Enjoy your morning coffee (we recommend Hawai’i-grown Kona) & sunrise on our private pier, on one of our hand-made benches or even on your lanai (porch). Be sure to be on the lookout for our Hawaiian sea turtle ohana! The endangered “Honu” aka Hawaiian Sea Turtles love playing in the crashing waves of the Pacific…

During winter months (December to March) keep your eyes open for Humpback Whales!

Waimanalo Beach offers some of the SAFEST swimming & MOST SUPERB snorkeling in the Hawaiian Islands! The natural reef & plentiful native corals & fish provide protection to our coastlines & a plethora of color under the sea, sure to captivate you & your family… Some favorite guests seen from our pier include: the State Fish; Humuhumunukunukuapua’a & State Mammal; the endangered Hawaiian Monk Seal. We provide snorkels, fins & masks plus fishing gear upon request.

Waimanalo Bay Beach & Makapu’u Beach, both world-renowned for body surfing & are two of Oahu’s top boogie boarding beaches for beginners, are less than 2 miles from our Beachfront Villas PLUS we provide boogie boards for your use so you’re all good to go!

We LOVE our FREE CONCIERGE services from SeekSpot! Ask us or our SeekSpot Ohana about: Hiking, Beach-Combing, Meditation, Outdoor or Indoor Yoga, Scuba Diving,

Mountain Climbing, Horse-Back Riding, Sailing, Whale Watching, Bird Watching, Scenic Drives, Surfing, Paddling, Stand-Up Paddle Boarding, Golf or Minature Golf, Waterfalls, Sauna & Spa, Botanical Gardens, Restaurants, Shopping, Site-Seeing, Luaus, Historical Museums & MORE!

You’re in the perfect location to explore these activities & so much more without compromising authentic Hawaiian paradise & serenity!

Whether this is your 1st or 50th stay here in Hawai’i, we guarantee you’ll be impressed & won’t want to wait to book your next stay! Our guests all state… THE PICTURES DON’T DO OUR HOMES JUSTICE! :)
