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.

My children and I used to live on Oahu, we visited this past 11-26June 2018 . We wanted to be away from the tourist areas to feel again like Ohana ~ Kama'aina.

Auntie Karin has such a sweet spirit ! She inquired about us well before our arrival to make sure we would be comfortable , if we were familiar with the islands and to suggest things to do. We could feel the Aloha all the way from Florida which excited us much more!!

Upon our arrival, I had a little difficulty finding the studio but quickly saw Karin was already inquiring about where we were and if we needed assistance. With her help we found the studio no problem.

Our stay was incredible! It was exactly what we were looking for . Gorgeous private property with a quiet ,impeccable yard full of fruit and flowering trees , even a Mama and baby chicken - that’s steps away from Waimānalo Beach -which is not frequented by tourist. I used to spend time here with my local friends who since left the island - it touched my heart greatly to be here again .

If you are unfamiliar with the island , this is a great location to be away from the city, out of traffic yet close to so many spectacular locations! There is also great restaurants just around the corner if you don’t feel like cooking .

It was amazing to feel like we were home again ! To have access to a kitchen , grill , beach chairs, boogy boards ,coolers , towels and beach toys was incredible. I didn’t have to spend my time aquiring these items ! So convenient! Just show up and sink into aloha time !

Karin checked in on us frequently by the app , text and in person .

It was really special to us to see a familiar face who really cared about us . We felt the real spirit of aloha staying with Karin. She went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable .

If I have to leave a down side .... the only thing is that we no longer live on Oahu ~ If we did : I have no doubt that Karin, my children and I would be Ohana . We would like to be so from afar !!

A hui hou !!! Much Aloha Karin !!!

We were very comfortable and at the best beach!

  • 5 of 5

Big, clean and comfortable. We appreciated the beach gear, towels and chairs. It got warm in the late afternoons but if we were inside we just turned on the air conditioning and were very comfortable. Beautiful yard with flowers and coconuts. It was a great place for my daughter and I to relax. We swam everyday, went to a luau really nearby at Sea Life Park. We spent one day in Waikiki - which was fun but we really liked our quiet empty beach here in Waimanalo. Recommend for couples, friends traveling together (2 queen beds), parents with a child or two.

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.

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.
