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!

Close to a world class beach

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for one reason. It was close to the beach - two minute walk if you walk slow. We love this beach. The place is not big but has a bedroom, kitchen (no stove), bathroom with nice shower that takes 5 minutes for water to get hot, coffee maker, outdoor lani with granite table. If I was staying longer I would want a bigger kitchen, but as advertised it was great, so it gets 5 stars.

Cozy accommodations near an amazing beach

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place with everything you need for a wonderful stay in Waimanalo. Plenty of privacy with a lovely patio in the rear and two minutes' walk to one of the biggest beaches on Oahu. Perfect for a couple! Our hosts were very gracious and available should you need them. We will be back! Many thanks to our hosts!!

Nice little place close to the sea

  • 5 of 5

This is a nice, clean little cottage only a short stroll to one of the best beaches in Hawaii. The place is small, just big enough for two people, but had all we could have needed for our stay. It is next door to another rental and the owners live upstairs - they were very friendly and almost never around. Recommend it for a couple looking for a less pricey place to stay in real Hawaii, but not far from the amenities of Kailua and Honolulu.

Can’t beat the beach and the quiet neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

Location is perfect! Really enjoyed the simplicity of the unit - loved the outside area. AC unit is extra and worth it for night sleeping. The owner is lovely and has a ton of local suggestions and connections. Would stay again.

It was a place to sleep

  • 2 of 5

We came to Hawaii for my brothers wedding, picked this place due to the high reviews and hopes of hearing the ocean at night as well as my brothers wedding was right on the beach just a few minutes away.

It is close to the ocean (3 minute walk give or take) but not close enough to hear the waves at night.

Bed is super soft (fiance loved it, I however need a firmer bed so my back wasnt super happy in the mornings)

I didnt notice AC wasnt included in my rental unit and that it would cost an additional $15 a day. That was a bummer.

Ants.... oh my gosh ants... First time I turned on the toaster oven the counter was swarming with them. No matter what we did or how much we cleaned up after making food, ants.... I eventually bought a queen killer and that took care of most of them.

There is also a parrot in the back yard, I did not know this. It is fairly obnoxious at times.

The dryer, when ran, does make this room HOT (the vent is right by the bedroom window) its also impossible to have a quiet night in as other people are almost always using the washer and dryer until they cant at 9PM.

Room was non refundable by the time I found these out - my family rented a few other places off of VRBO (some more expensive, some cheaper) all were 100x's better than this place and within 1 minute walking to 2 minute driving distance. Reason for 2 stars is due to the equipment available to barrow, ability to wash and dry clothing without additional fees and location, also we never met the owners in person, this could be a plus to some people but not us, last time we came to Hawaii I enjoyed coffee and breakfast with the hosts', I understand every ones different but it was kind of a downer not even to get a hello in person.

I would only suggest this place if there is no other places in the area available.

My mother and father got a place 1 minute driving distance away, it came with a personal letter to welcome them, AC, some complimentary Hawaiian fruits and the renters offered to take them on a small tour if they wanted during their first day on arrival. This was the cheapest of all the rentals my friends and family rented... Everyone is different and have different schedules but I hope in the future people who rent out will upgrade their hospitality especially for the price of the room.

Cosy cottage close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was perfect for my wife and I. It was clean & well maintained. It is in a quiet neighborhood and only a couple houses down from the beach. They had beach chairs, mats, towels & boogie boards for our many trips to the beach. :-) This location worked well as our base for exploring Oahu and I would recommend it if you're looking for a relaxing vacation "out of the city". We would definitely stay again. Thanks Art & Jaime!
