Guestbook comments from the owner

(5-Star Review as posted on TripAdvisor

Very private romantic lush tropical cottage setting, far away from uber-tourista Waikiki. Peaceful and calm...just steps from the very uncrowded and beautiful Waimanalo Beach.

Our rental unit was incredibly well appointed with all the kitchen items you could ever need complete access to lots of beach equipment This includes masks, snorkels, fins, beach chairs, umbrellas, etc.

The best part is the hosts themselves...Erlinda and Wayne...the warmest, friendliest owner-innkeepers that you could ask for. Perfect for honeymoons and anniversaries. Hope to return one day. I give it 5 stars, only because that is as far as the rating scale goes!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

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

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.

Beautiful, welcoming, tranquil paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Need I say more?

Herlinda offers a corner of paradise with her studios. This was our second trip to stay and both times we enjoyed the tranquil backyard, efficiency kitchen and the o-so-close beach! The studio bed is very comfortable, the backyard is nice for picnic breakfast, lunch or dinner. Herlinda offers so many thoughtful amenities for your day at the beach, bamboo mats, umbrellas, coolers, boogie board, snorkels, towels. We will return. Mahalo!

Owner's Response: It always gives us a special thrill to welcome back return guests, who we refer to as "Ohana" (Hawaiian for "family"). So easy to have, found happiness in everything. Yes, we do our best to provide excellent accommodation, thank you for saying so. Your happiness gives a great deal of satisfaction. Hope to see you again soon. Aloha HN

Great for business trips

  • 5 of 5

I stayed for two weeks for a business trip. The room was very clean and well stocked with everything I could possibly need. Wayne was a great host and the setting couldn't have been better for relaxing after work. The location can't be beat with the short 1 minute walk to a beautiful beach and a short drive to Hawaii Kai for shopping.

I will definitely consider staying here again on my next trip to Hawaii.

Charming, private suite

  • 5 of 5

What a find this was; reasonably priced, well equipped, well run and a great location. We really had fun using this private suite as our home base to explore Oahu. Waimanalo beach is steps away and beautiful. Wayne had everything one would need to fully enjoy it; beach towels, umbrellas, chairs and snorkeling equipment (which we used at Hanauma Bay--gorgeous). The suite was spacious and had outdoor access to a peaceful, lovely private yard. The well stocked kitchen area was the perfect size and so handy. We didn't want to leave!
