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. We feel blessed to be able to share the ALOHA and open our home to guests from all over the world!

What makes this cottage unique

See our REVIEWS! This home is a rare gem because of the location, amazing amenities, quiet & comfort, history, VIEWS & pleasant home-away-from-home comforts :) COME VISIT TODAY!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our return visit here was beyond worth it! Your cottages, pier, beach, canoe/catamaran... Were a blessing. We hope to come back with our kiddos. :)

We love learning about Hawaii & look forward to coming back here. It is one of my favorite things to snorkel here. Sitting on the pier, drinking coffee, meeting neighbors, watching 4 or 5 turtles at a time & fish are definite joys of staying here. Thank you again so much for sharing your beachfront property with us.

Beautiful view and great peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

This rustic, cute and romantic beach house is right on the beach. We made great use of the semi private pier for champagne sunsets and coffee sunrises! Close to Kailua and far enough away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. Perfect for people like us-on their honeymoon who wanted seclusion and privacy!

Beautiful setting steps from beach but place needs some updating for the $395 pricetag

  • 3 of 5

View 5 out of 5 ,setting 5 out of 5 ,host Kalia 5 out of 5 , accommodations and amenities 3 out of 5 place needs an update shower stall stained and taps felt like they were gonna fall off in my hands. Shower curtain dirty and shower stall small epic struggle to get clean and not get dirty at the same time. Kitchen was fine and I realize most people don't eat in on holidays but the pots and pans looked like they had been salvaged from the uss arizona. Small things but at a $395 a night price point I expected a little more. That being said you are here for the view and the beach and they are stunning. Oh also for a 200 dollar cleaning fee the job done was sub standard sand all over the couch dishes left for me to put away vacuum left for me to put away BBQ dirty two pairs of I don't know who's shoes for me to deal with. Would I stay again only for the view. Also area is a little sketchy lots of homeless people wandering around none on property but just outside the gate they are everywhere also road noise a bit more than I would care for but the waves crashing do a good job of limiting it. All in all 3 out 5 at the price. Hope this helps!

Great spot, great stay.

  • 4 of 5

Great location near my favorite beach in Oahu. Cute little no frills bungalow with comfortable mattress and functional kitchen. Only minor gripe was lack of decent lighting in living room.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Great beach cottage in a great location. It's rustic, nothing fancy, but this feels appropriate for this style of home. I enjoyed my mornings on the front porch sipping coffee and watching the sun come up. I'd suggest two changes. 1. Cut back the plants in front of the porch because the all but block the million dollar ocean view. 2. Change out the shower stall. It's getting a bit dirty. Would I stay here again? Definitely! As a matter of fact, there are two other properties for rent on this lot and I'd stay at either one of them as well.

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!

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! :)
