About Quinten

Hello Everyone!

My name is Quinten and I a was born and raised here Oahu. I recently graduated from LMU in LA with a degree in Entrepreneurship and International Business and have been working this past year as a English Language teacher while helping my mom renovate the guest house we are now offering on Airbnb.

I've had many friends come and stay here at Hale Wa'a in the past, and have had many good times with them staying at the guest house and showing them the awesomeness of this island.

I really look forward to meeting you and providing the Hawaii experience that will keep you coming back year after year \m/

Quinten purchased this house in 2013

Why Quinten chose Waialae - Kahala

This property is in the perfect intersection of downtown Waikiki and the beautiful nature of Oahu.

What makes this house unique

We provide amazing ocean views from the Lanai and you can enjoy the light trade winds coming in provide the perfect environment to relax.

I love taking a walking around the quiet neighborhood. Waialae Iki park is a short 1 minute walk away where you can enjoy the playground equipment and 2 basketball courts. There is also a huge field for running and exercise

The beach across the street is only a 5 minute walk away!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Ann and her family were wonderful guests! They are very friendly and respectful, and left the house quite tidy when they left. We were very happy that Ann and her family could make full use of the amenities we provided and that they had a wonderful stay at our guest house! We sincerely hope they come back again.

Beautiful location, fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Hale Wa'a house. It's a beautiful and well-maintained property in a quiet neighborhood just off of a main road. Gorgeous views from the balcony. Easy access to the all of the "touristy" and non touristy things to do. Very close to several grocery stores and multiple restaurants.

We did a fair amount of cooking, so it was really nice to have an abundance of utensils and cookware. There was fruit, snacks, coffee, and water awaiting us upon arrival. Quinten met us upon check-in and was kind enough to give us a tour and provide lots of information about the area. Elaine was a pleasure to meet, kind and gracious. I enjoyed chatting with her.

This was a fantastic stay for our family! thank you for your hospitality!

Quality Family Vacation Time

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking to spend some fun quality time with your family then look no further for place to stay. This is the IDEAL vacation home, very close to all amenities, clean, well-stocked...it has everything you can possibly need for a fun filled holiday. Quinten is gracious, kind, and very patient. Our 3 and 6 year old kids loved him and still can't stop telling people about him and he always had time to answer our questions or provide information. Thanks to Elaine also for providing extra toys and books and introducing us their own private zoo. It was our first vacation to Oahu and it was the perfect home for our family. We were very close to a private beach and playground; Starbucks and an abundant amount food services are just down the road. We did multiple day trips only to return to a peaceful home that we could unwind, enjoy a beverage, and watch the sun set over the ocean from our private balcony. I can not say enough about our fantastic vacation and stay at this house. When we come back to Oahu we will definitely stay here again.

Great location, spacious, clean and lots of Aloha spirit!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4, including two adult children, spent the Christmas holiday back “home”. The house was 10 minutes from my parents’ house which made it super convenient to go back/forth. It was convenient to Aina Haina shopping and eating (Foodland, Longs, chop suey, shave ice, Starbucks, and La Tour). Quinten and Elaine were the most gracious hosts. The townhouse was comfortable and spacious for eating breakfast and relaxing after the beach. Nice views of the ocean from the master bedroom. We recommend Hale Wa’a, especially for returning kamaaina!
