About Karin OMahony

My family and I moved to Waimānalo in 2009, after having loved it for many years. This is truly where the country meets the ocean. The Beachlots community (as it is known locally) is a wonderful neighborhood set right on the most exquisite beach and nestled right into the majestic Ko'olau Mountains. We love to share the rich culture and Aloha spirit of Hawaii with our guests.

Why Karin OMahony chose Waimanalo Beach

This lovely property is beautiful, inviting and comfortable. Lots of windows and sliding doors let the cool ocean breezes right inside. You can hear the waves crashing while you lie in bed. The rooms are spacious, furniture comfortable and excellent quality, the beds are comfy and kitchen open and easy to use. In less than 1 minute your toes are in the sand for whatever beach adventure you wish. The property is fenced and gated and has a lovely yard filled with tropical fruit and flowers.

What makes this estate unique

My youngest son was 11 when we moved here, each time we stepped onto the beach he would exclaim, "Its just like a picture!" Even the drive home from Costco (15- 20 minutes) takes my breath away every time I round the corner by the Makapu'u lighthouse and see the blues and greens of Waimānalo Bay. In addition to the physical beauty, the rich, spiritually connected, culture of Hawaii is a treasure and blessing to all who come to be enveloped in it.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I will truly miss this place - best family vacation we have ever experienced! Thank you so much for your hospitality.

Very nice

  • 5 of 5

The home is great and did well accommodate our family of 5 with 3 kids.

The beach is 1 min walking distance, very quiet, perfect for body boarding (body boards were kindly provided by Karin) with shallow water on a long distance, perfect for kids.

Do not hesitate!

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Really great house with an amazing location. Right next to the beach. The only draw back was no real oven. Tried to used the microwave/oven but no luck. Other than that, perfect!

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed our lovely beach home! I'm so sorry I didn't know you needed help with the convection oven/microwave oven combination. I do leave the direction book but it sounds like you only used the microwave. Thanks for the feedback - I'll be sure to check in about oven.

Our stay at Karin's place couldn't have been better -- pure perfection! The house is beautiful and perfect for our 10 day stay. Karin stayed in contact with us and was always helpful. The nearby beach was amazing. We loved the Waimanalo community, and all of local attractions (Sea Life Park, local hikes, snorkeling, restaurants and shopping). Just a perfect setting between ocean and mountains. We appreciated having a washer/dryer, and enjoyed our mornings on the breathtaking lanai. Loved waking up to the mountain view and birds (& roosters) singing! We're already planning our next trip -- but this one will be hard to beat! Thanks so much to Karin for her hospitality and making this a trip of a lifetime! We were able to check everything off of our list for this trip.

Our new favorite place

  • 5 of 5

This is a spacious, clean and accommodating home. The owner was very attentive to all of our needs, and even let us know when fun events were happening nearby. It is a very "local" town, with a good grocery store within a mile, and a fantastic boogie boarding, castle building, swimming, kid friendly beach half a block from the rental. Worth every penny!

Large airy family house next to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. The house is large and airy. There is no A/C, but with the windows open and the fans on, we actually used blankets in the evening because we got chilly. Super large kitchen. Great for family gathering. My family of 6 (4 adults and kids age 12 & 4) slept and hung out in here with room to spare. They are literally 2 houses to the beach and they provide boogie boards, buckets, chairs, snorkel, umbrella, beach towels. We had everything we needed. Check in was super easy. Thank you for the use of your wonderful vacation home!!

Waimanalo Beach
Car: recommended

Waimānalo is a quiet country beach town, yet only 30 minutes from Waikiki. You can enjoy a wide range of water sports right here in Waimānalo Bay - swimming, snorkeling, boogie boarding, surfing, kayaking and stand up paddle boarding. When the wind is right, there is windsurfing and kite boarding too! It's always a great beach for a walk (or jog) and beach combing - 5 miles of white sand to enjoy.

These are just a few of the reasons "Dr Beach" named Waimānalo Beach # 1.
