About the property

Attached Studio Near The Beach

Come experience local family living on the island of O'ahu. Our humble neighborhood is nestled at the base of the Koolau Mountains and is 1 mile from Dr. Beach's #1 Beach for 2015, Waimanalo Bay. Our attached studio is a great budget alternative for flexible travelers that includes one designated uncovered parking stall.

Waimanalo is on the east side of the island, known as the "Windward Side." It is conveniently located between world famous Lanikai Beach and Waikiki Beach (about a 30 minute drive to each). Sea Life Park is nearby where guests can swim with dolphins during the day and enjoy a Hawaiian luau in the evening.

We are a busy family with toddlers, teenagers, and a Havanese dog so we will enjoy guests who make themselves at home. We live on site and are available for questions and needs. The unit sleeps 2 people and has a queen size bed and a fold out twin size futon for travelers with a young child or third individual which can be placed on the floor. We are baby/kid friendly.

Turn on the AC or the ceiling fans, close the windows, and tune out environmental noise. The park adjacent to us is open to the public. It typically gets locked at 7 pm except for parking use during special events at the community guest house on the weekends. We have chickens roaming around our neighborhood too. Quiet hours are between 10 pm - 7 am. The unit has access to an air conditioner which is VERY nice for the humid Hawaiian nights.

There is a laundry mat half a mile away but we do complimentary washing during your stay. The bus stop is very close to our house also. If you have further questions please let us know. We look forward to the possibility of having you as our guest.

We booked this unit for a short stay and couldn't be happier with our choice. The hosts were very accommodating, kind and helpful. The unit is spotless, and has all the amenities a couple could need or want. It's located in a quit cul de sac away from the hustle and bustle of larger towns, close to groceries/markets and restaurants. A quick zip down the road is a perfect beach. We would book this unit when we return next, you won't beat it.

Hawaiian Hospitality at its best

I cannot say enough good things about this studio and the owners. It's quiet, comfortable, and the hosts did everything possible to make us feel at home.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Kaui was a wonderful hostess. She even came out in a downpour to being us umbrellas. Room was clean and more than fully equiped with lots of extra supplies. Even beach chairs, umbrella, board, snorkel equipment. Anything we needed was there. Great greeting with chocolates and sparkling cider. Road noise took a day getting used to being from a quiet enviroment. Air Conditioned plus two ceiling fans but didn't use. Would highly recommend for a great price.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The unit was quiet and cozy, which had everything we needed (refrigerator, coffee maker, toaster, kitchenware, etc). It is close to the beautiful Kailua and Lanikai beaches as well as other beach parks nearby. Kaui and family are very nice host. If you want to stay away from the noises in Waikiki and like to experience the windward side of O’ahu (it’s also closer to the north shore), we highly recommend this place.

Wonderful option for Oahu !

  • 5 of 5

As many of the other very positive reviews have said this studio is a fantastic option for staying on Oahu during your vacation or a work related visit. The studio felt like a home and not a hotel room. It is roomy, well decorated and having a kitchen area is a bonus as we could prepare a light breakfast each morning as there is several grocery stores within a 10 minute drive. You will receive great "Aloha" hospitality from Kaui and her family. The location is great for a nice balance of beach options, distance from Honolulu and quick access to the North Shore. The studio is well stocked with towels, dishes, cleaning supplies and even sunscreen. The unit is clean and has a comfortable bed and pillows as well.The welcome note and box of chocolates was also a very nice touch. Cannot go wrong staying here. We will be back for sure !
