About Tamy or Rick

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 or Rick purchased this studio in 2004

Why Tamy or Rick chose Waimanalo Beach

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 150 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.

Recently remodeled, our rental was designed by a 'Green' certified architect. 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 Jasmine will fill your room.

Each suite provides all the comforts of home with a private hotel style bath. An attached den (common area) offers a place for quiet leisure activities.

Two extremely friendly outside dogs (Koa and George) will be happy to welcome you when you arrive and visit you everyday during your stay.

Perfect for Us

  • 5 of 5

Tami and Ricks place was perfect for my wife and I. We stayed at their property for four nights, and couldn't have hoped for a better experience. The suite was well maintained, very clean, and was a short one to two minute walk to a beautiful, uncrowded beach. We would definitely stay at their property again.

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect location for a quiet, gorgeous location with beautiful crystal clear ocean and sandy beach 1 minute walk out the door. The housing was clean and adorable with a porch to eat dinner (great take-away in the area) and access to Keurig coffee-maker to enjoy a cup of coffee while watching the sunrise on the beach. Would highly recommend this place!

Fabulous location, gorgeous beach steps away, nice owners - room off of main house

  • 4 of 5

I stayed for 3 nights in the Pineapple room. It was very nicely appointed, with shampoo/conditioner in the shower and a mini fridge in the room. The location is superb! Mere steps from the gorgeous empty beach with turquoise water. If you want to be able to relax on a gorgeous beach without a lot of tourists this is the place for you. The property grounds are lovely, with lots of tropical plants. The owners supplied beach towels, beach chairs, snorkel sets and boogie boards - really everything you need. Directions to get to the home were great too (I arrived after dark so this was very helpful).

One night there was a lot of noise from the main house (the rental room is just a room off of the house so the sound carries). I didn't fully appreciate this was the setup before booking so I was a little surprised. It was fine as I traveled alone and it wasn't late at night, but could be an issue for others. Also the Internet was slow at times. I ate at the local Ono Shrimp Shack twice, but otherwise drove up to the Kailua area for shopping and food as the immediate options are very limited. I would definitely stay here again.
