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.

Very clean inside and outside

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful room in their home with a private entry , your own bathroom, mini fridge , all plates and utensils in your room. You share the living room with another room they rent. The first thing we notice is how clean they keep the outdoor and indoor. Very impressive. Rick and Tamy are very nice and it is a quiet neighbourhood ,across the street from a beautiful beach. Thanks again Rick and Tamy

Percect for two :)

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here very recently for a 5 night stay. It was everything we needed in a cozy, clean room on a quiet street with the unbelievable Waimānalo Beach only steps away. There are many restaurants in the neighboring town of Kailua and outdoor night markets on Thursday’s with live music and incredible food. It was a great place to enjoy gorgeous sunrises and Tammy and Rick were wonderful hosts who really took the extra care to make sure we had everything we needed. We hope to be back again. Don’t miss out on this great spot and the surf on the East shore!!

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Great suite across street to local uncrowded beach. Clean. Private. Lanai outside the bedroom was a plus. Rick was great host offering tips to favorite spots and let us use snorkeling equipment. Loved the dogs! We will come again.

We loved our stay. Owners were friendly. Beautiful, quiet beach steps away. Owners made sure we had anything we needed. The room was great, comfortable clean bed, the AC works great and doesn’t make any sound.

Beautiful Location & Welcoming Hosts

  • 5 of 5

For our second stay on Oahu, we wanted to explore the Waimānalo area. We are so thankful Rick and Tamy shared their home with us. My husband and I also enjoyed a glider flight on the North side with Rick and we were also generously invited to a family and friends party on our last night. The nearby beach is gorgeous and the location is so convenient. Whether driving to Honolulu or heading up the coast, each view is a delight with plenty of stop-worthy sights along the way. If you’re looking for a comfortable, friendly stay at a wonderful price, look no further! Mahalo to our new ohana!

Absolutely lovely!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed for 6 nights in January and thoroughly enjoyed myself. The room is exactly as the pictures look. I think the outside sitting area is actually nicer than the pictures depict as it seems a bit larger in real life. The bed is fantastic, there is a great selection of coffee, books and magazines, a fan and air conditioning (which I did not need), good t.v.-- you will be comfortable! The beach is almost outside your door and one of the most magnificent I have ever seen. If you enjoy playing a little with pets you are in luck, if not you will hardly know they are there.

Rick and Tamy are wonderful. You can have complete privacy if you wish, at the same time their friendliness is evident and you can always have a nice chat with them or get any help you might need.

Waimanalo is not a touristy town; Kailua is in 1 direction, Hawaii Kai in the other, which is kind of nice as it gives one a more varied experience of some areas of the island.

I definitely recommend staying here.
