About the property

Large Studio, A/C, outside terrace, BBQ and sleeps 4.

Right on the beach , this is a truly unique place to stay in Hawaii for a couple. Next door to Magnum PI shooting location with gated entrance and your own private parking this studio looks like a first-class Apartment Suite with air conditioning, two queen size beds and a roomy dining area. Check out the photos to appreciate it. Outside you have a tropical garden perfectly manicured and access to a magnificent beach, protected and secluded.

This location is not only historical from the numerous movies shot on-site like Hawaii Five O and Magnum PI cross over episodes but is also an Hawaiian Landmark with a turtle pond "Pahonu"' built by the Ancient Hawaiians and safe for the children to swim in. The beach next to the property is pristine, safe and ideal for snorkeling. Waimanalo is known for its long white sandy beach, the longest stretch of sand on the island. Close by we have a small grocery store type 7-11 and several local restaurants, one mexican ' Sergio ' and the other serve all the favorite local dishes ' ONO Steaks '. The closest towns are Hawaii Kai and Kailua, located 15 minutes away by car and Waikiki at 35 minutes.

Included amenities are snorkeling gear, lounge chairs for the beach , beach towels, umbrellas, BBQ grill and more.

Incredible property and the perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Had an amazing stay at this beach studio. The studio itself is tastefully designed, well appointed and comfortable. Communication was fantastic by Gilles and check in/out was as easy as can be. The property is very well maintained and the location was perfect - easy access to the beach and water with all of the beach and lounging accoutrements provided. Also close to Kialua for groceries and dining, and close to the many incredible hiking spots. I can't say enough about how fantastic my stay was and my GF, who initially wanted to stay at a hotel so she could be served drinks poolside, kept telling me over and over, "you were right about this spot. It's so much better than a hotel." Never got tired of hearing it haha!

Wonderful Location!

  • 5 of 5

We were happy to discover this nice vacation rental! Nearby is beautiful mountains and a lovely beach. Also, there are easy shopping spots and plenty attractions to see. The property is beautiful and well maintained. We frequently went to Hawaii Kai shopping center and sometimes Koko Marina Shopping Center. A nice highlight was going north to view a tour of the Kualoa ranch. I highly recommend staying here! We drove around the entire island and Waimanalo is an ideal area for sure! We are thankful and the stay was so lovely. I feel like I can go back right now! Mahalo from Washington D.C. visitors :-)

Romantic Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time in this apartment. The beach access was a plus, the short drive to Waimanalo was convenient. There are lots of local places to eat but it was easy to make meals at the apartment, too. The beds were comfortable, the water pressure in the shower was great. This place was perfect for us as a couple but would also work well for a family with 2 children along. We had a wonderful Hawaiian get-away! Mahalo!

Our stay at this property was amazing, and we feel very fortunate to have spent our 30th wedding anniversary here. We had never rented through VRBO before, so I hoped for the best and prepared for the worst. We found the property to be exactly – no – better than described. No surprises, and no issues. The studio is in great shape, and it has obviously been well taken care of (well done, Giles!). The sat TV worked well and the WiFi was fast. There are two other rental buildings on the property, but both were unoccupied during our stay. It is about 15 - 25 minutes to shopping, but we came well prepared for that. We wanted solitude, and we found it.

The beach… oh, my. Gorgeous, and nearly private – again – exactly as depicted. There were a few people on the beach on Saturday & Sunday, but otherwise it was nearly deserted, and always stunning. During our mornings and evenings at the beach, we met & chatted with two of the nearby property owners (and one brought us a fresh bag of star fruit – delicious!).

We had to work hard to come up with any criticisms, but here they are: 1) More comfortable beds would have been nice, but honestly we slept fine (even though we both have temperamental backs). 2) Sharper steak / cleaving knives. Yep – that’s all we could come up with!

As we prepare to leave for our flight, we find ourselves starting to plan for our next trip here. We are convinced that if we stay anywhere else next time, we will be disappointed, so... we’ll be back. I've already recommended it to several friends.

Wonderful in paradise

The house was amazing but words can't describe the beach. Surprised my wife for a big birthday and she was in awe the whole time. Was a wonderful time all around....

Slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect. It's a studio style home with everything you could possibly need. You are literally steps away from the ocean. It's like having a private beach...the only time we saw a crowd was on Saturday.

We started our day by watching the sun rise, chasing crabs and looking for shells. Then we'd head up, cook breakfast and then head back for snorkeling. The drive to the bigger town (to the left when you leave the home) had amazing views and many places to stop and gaze.

Everyone was so friendly and helpful....making it hard for us to leave. Will definitely be back to this little slice of heaven one day!!
