Guestbook comments from the owner

Steps to best beach on Oahu. Big space compared to Waikiki hotels at similar price. Usually stay in Waikiki for the deals but the $30-$50 a day for parking stinks. On Island for business and nice to have a peaceful spot 30 min from downtown. Been to island many times but never had or made time for an ocean swim. Swam every day this trip.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry I didn't know Will was having trouble with the wifi until after he left. The wifi works fine, there was a problem with the booster I didn't know about until his departure. I'm glad he enjoyed our lovely studio.

Beautiful location and stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in the beach studio. It was well-equipped with kitchen items but more so beach stuff like towels, boogie boards and chairs. The outdoor shower was helpful too after coming back from the beach. Karin was always very responsive and the location of the studio was incredibly close to the beach. While there wasn't full AC, there was an AC unit that kept the studio cool enough and comfortable. We would absolutely consider staying here again. Thanks for everything, Karin!

Well situated studio with very responsive manager.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the studio, and the manager was very responsive when we had any questions. It's just a half block walk to the beautiful beach where we saw 10 weddings during the course of our stay. There isn't an A/C in the studio, but there are plenty of fans. There are not many restaurants in Waimanalo, but it's a short drive to Kailua where there are restaurants, Target, a movie theater, and Safeway. The TV show "Hawaii 5-0" was filming down the street. We plan to return!

Lovely, big studio! My kids and I had a great time.

  • 5 of 5

We love this studio! Everything is so nice and clean - love the new, clean fridge. Its so easy to get to the beach - really nice with white sand and beautiful sea. Also a short walk to a co-op, healthy restaurant and a yoga studio! We enjoyed the laid back beach neighborhood and could still easily get to Waikiki and Pearl Harbor. We had two good queen beds, plenty of space, ocean breezes. It was great to have a kitchen and a full bath. We used the body boards and chairs - nice to have. We also went to the Chief's Luau a few miles away - really fun and good food.

High price for this basement condo

  • 2 of 5

We were welcomed very friendly when we arrived at the property. Karin told us helpful information about the things being around (supermarket, restaurants etc). Inside, we found everything we needed, the kitchen was fully equipped and enough towels for our party of three. Also additional beach towels have been provided. To feel more comfortable we cleaned all the kitchen stuff. The accommodation was equipped with only two chairs for 3 adults so one of us had to stand up during the meals. The missing air conditioning wasn't a problem because of the temperature but of the kind of moldy smell. The garden was very nice and the grill served its purpose, but there had been no garden furniture to also eat outside.

Overall, the stay was fine but in our opinion the price-performance ratio was not given for this basement condo.

Owner's Response: I'm so sorry that Walter and Inge didn't let me know they were unhappy. I could have remedied their concerns and even moved them to another location had I known of their complaints. With our in person, text and email correspondence during their stay I was not told they needed or disliked anything. I did notice when I arrived just after their departure that all their wet towels were closed in the bathroom - that will definitely create a moldy smell! Hanging the towels and leaving the bathroom door open for air circulation is the solution. A 600 sq foot studio with two queen beds, full kitchen and bath, close to Waimanalo Beach for $200 a night is a great deal and enables families to stay at the beach who might not otherwise be able to.

So close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay! The beach is amazing and very close to the house. The house was clean and nice - the yard was beautiful! We enjoyed having beach chairs and cooler to use. We cooked our meals in the big kitchen and loved the nearby market and cafe. The house had lots of fans and good breezes through lots of windows. Karin was very nice and answered all our questions and made sure we had what we needed. We felt safe and comfortable, we went for walks on the beach in the evening. We enjoyed snorkeling, swimming and riding waves. It was good to have a fenced yard and parking right there.

We recommend this place for small families, couples or friends traveling together.

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.
