traveler reviews for this waimanalo studio rental

Great place to stay

Review submitted: July 23, 2012   Date of arrival: July 11, 2012

I could not imagine staying in beautiful tropical Hawaii in a hotel or high rise. This wonderful B & B is set in a lovely tropical garden which is a great place to bird watch. Since it is 3 houses from the beach, you can enjoy your jet lag by greeting the sunrise on a perfect sand beach with few visitors and a great view.

The reviews before mine have said it all, great garden, wonderful spacious rooms as pictured, supplies laid in, kitchen and outdoor barbecue set up and a warm host who feels like a friend immediately. Making my own breakfast was a plus for me with my gluten free diet. I've been to many, many B & B's and this one is at the top of my list of favorites

Review submitted: October 30, 2008   Date of arrival: October 11, 2008

This neat and tidy studio is the perfect place to relax, after a wounderful day on the nicest,and quietest beach in all of Oahu. Herlinda and her friendly dog helped to make our anniversary a week of happiness in paradise. Wakeing to the sound of the surf and birds singing in the AM is awesome,enjoying a cool drink in the beautiful back yard at sunset, life doesn't get any better then that. All the things you need for a great vacation are at your disposal, the pictures don't lie. We would not hesitate to come back to Hale Nalo paradise found. Marty & Millie.

(5-Star Review as posted on TripAdvisor

Waimanalo is a great place to unwind and relax, only a short stroll to uncrowded Waimanalo Beach and great cafes and restaurants (esp. Sweet Home Waimanalo!) Bus stop is very close with buses frequently heading into Kailua and down to Makapuu. Hosts are extremely welcoming and the rooms, which are clean well designed, contain everything required for a perfect getaway.
