About Jaime Dier Higgins

My name is Art and I live on the property. I have lived in Hawaii since 1979 and I am an avid water sportster. My favorite activities are kite surfing and dirt biking. I live on the most beautiful beach and I have opened the first floor of my house to guests so they can experience this paradise. I am available to talk story and give you local tips and ideas but only if you want to talk - otherwise you won't even know that I am there!

Jaime Dier Higgins purchased this house in 2015

Why Jaime Dier Higgins chose Waimanalo Beach

We are located across the street from the beach access to the most beautiful open expanse of white sand beach in Hawaii, and in the nation according to Dr. Beach (Waimanalo Beach voted #1 in 2015 in the US). It is still fairly unpopulated and you can go the beach and not see anyone else!

You feel like you are a million miles away from anything but yet you are still close to other attractions on Oahu.

Great location and easy access to a great beach

  • 4 of 5

No lack of beach toys stored at the house to use while you are there, Art is a great guy who was very helpful filling us in about places to see and visit while in the area.

The fish ponds were a great place to teach our grandson to swim.

Fantastic place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This place was great. It is a minutes walk from one of the best and quietest beaches on the island. We really enjoyed how quiet the neighborhood was.

absolutely beautiful spot!

  • 5 of 5

It was a privilege to stay with Art in his Waimanalo Beach house. We loved the location-- so close to the beautiful beach, walking distance to some great and locally loved spots to eat, and not far from great hiking and snorkeling! We enjoyed going to Hanauma Bay, Shark's Cove, Ono's, and Bella Bistro. Art was very kind and hospitable, and gave us lots of recommendations for enjoying our stay! The apartment was gorgeous, with all new appliances and a cute beachy theme. The beds were comfortable and we really appreciated having an outdoor shower in addition to the one inside! Art also has a beautiful parrot named Nui, and she is a total sweetheart :)
