Why Kalia Kalama chose Waimanalo
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!

Quaint home near steps from the ocean. Great views and minutes from all the wonderful sights of the island. Thank you for your amazing home.
We booked this house mainly for the amazing views and its backyard amenities.
The main house met our basic requirements.
We would prefer to have the inside shower more updated as the water pressure was weak; the outside shower's water pressure was great.
Also, we would of preferred to have the inside shower to have been cleaned more thoroughly.
We would love to come back in the future.
Perfect place for family vacation
We rented another bigger house on the property for 7 nights, but added this place for 3 nights for our young adults in the family. It is a charming place for three of them to enjoy. The property has beautiful view and the perfect snorkeling spot in the front. We enjoyed every moment and plan to go back for our next family reunion. The property manager was very helpful in meeting our requests.
Aloha to Noriko-san and family. They were amazing to have as guests and will be welcomed back in the future. We at Beachfront Villas Hawaii wish them a safe journey home.
Your own little paradise!!
We absolutely loved our stay here...a quick drive from the craziness of Waikiki, but you feel worlds away! Also a close drive to Kailua, Lanikai beach and Hanauma Bay! The cottage is as shown and was perfect for our family of four. Simple, but clean and a stocked kitchen supply wise. The property was the best part though with your very own little beach and snorkeling bay (with lots of equipment provided). There’s a hammock, swings and Mike the owner took us out on his amazing catamaran! We would love to come back ASAP...thank you!!
So Happy we chose Waimanalo Honu Cottage
Our family, (2 adults, 2 kids) just recently returned from our trip to Oahu. There were several times when we thanked our VRBO stars that we chose the Waimanalo Honu Cottage. It was exactly as described, situated beautifully on the eastern Oahu Shores. Beautiful views of the near bye mountains and islands and a fun semi-private beach for us to swim in. WE saw lots of gekkos and salamanders and even Whales surfacing in the distance. The drive to and from was beautiful in and of itself with many roadside turnoffs with spectacular views of the ocean and shore. The town of Waimanalo was also fun with a great roadside eatery Ono Stakehouse (as recommended by the property) and an ice cream shop (Dave's) that the kids enjoyed returning to frequenty. The people in the area were very friendly and the gift shops much more reasonable than downtown Honolulu. We did enjoy driving to Waikiki as well and were glad to make a day trip out of it, but it was nice to retire away from the hub-bub of the main hotel touristy areas.
The cottage was in a great location. An easy day trip up to the Polynesian center for Luau and show, near Hanuau Bay (sp?) and Eastern Honolulu and the Kona Brewing company restaurant which was a nice hangout.
The cottage itself was cozy for four but even the downstairs pullout bed was comfortable. Great that they had a big bin full of recreational equipment we could use for the beach. Kids enjoyed the hammock as did I on late moonlit nights.
Saved big money preparing our own breakfasts and a couple of dinners in the kitchen which was also appreciated.
Would stay there again if and when we return to Hawaii. Thank you for letting us share in your cottage. Hawaii and Hawaiians were great!
Aloha Bryan (sp), its is always a great opportunity to host such enjoyable guest such as you and your family. We would be thrilled to have you return anytime you like. Until then, be well, have a safe journey and keep smilin!
Aloha and Mahalo Nui Loa.....Kalia Kalama, Property Manager

Waimanalo is home to one of the World’s most beautiful beaches as well as a few locally owned & operated restaurants & shops.

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).
