'The best bed I've slept on in my life' (many guests have said this!)
Plenty of windows surround the bed, inviting lots of cooling breezes...
Relaxing and beautiful art hangs on the walls...
The stone bathroom is as spacious as some bedrooms. Rain shower head, open architecture, big enough for two, windows...
We provide the EO product line of soaps for hands and body and hair. It is sumptuous.
More EO...because there is simply nothing too good for our guests.
Air, breezes, light, and the luxury of space...
Huge granite countertop, plenty of room to relax...
View from inside the kitchenette...with everything you'll need to prepare simple meals.
Big bright new kitchenette, clean and spacious
Many guests tell us these photos do not do this space 'justice'...
Let the frog set the mood....
Enjoy locally-grown organic fruit, (when available) often from our own trees, and Hawaii-made chocolates. Buy local!
The view from the Mountain Deck...wow... the gorgeous Koolau Mountains.
Beachside deck: Perfect for al fresco dining...
...or watching a beautiful clear moonrise...
Mountain deck: just outside of the kitchenette...great place to catch rays by day, and enjoy your private Weber bbq in...
Fragrant plumeria from our gardens...
One of the many spectacular sunrises, just steps from our front door...
This welcoming guest lobby is where you pass through to your upstairs suite.
The door to the ZEN Treehouse is open and there on the left...
Everywhere you turn there are beautiful things...
Waimanalo: Ranked the #1 BEST SUMMER BEACH IN THE WORLD. Yes, it's true (don't tell anyone!)
Complimentary: a Macbook in the lobby for you to use; and an iPhone is available to borrow (for int'l guests)
Outside the lobby you'll find loaner beach chairs, boogie boards, coolers... all for your use and enjoyment.
Our property is photovoltaic! Powered by the sun!
Hawaii's official state flower: the radiant hibiscus
This little bird puts out the most beautiful melodies... usually around dinner time...
Fragrant frangipani floats on the breezes all around the property...
These cute birds are Java sparrows. They hop around the garden and are very friendly...
This is our parking area, the big sliding doors lead into the lobby...so convenient!
Our welcoming front gate.
The view from our driveway...the walk to this public beach access is short.
The Makapu'u Lighthouse is just up the road, a 4 minute drive. Spectacular coastline walk, fantastic whale watching...
This is a Hawaiian sea turtle, or 'honu'. We cherish their presence in our bay...
The view north from Makapu'u Lighthouse. Spectacular!
From December to April, migrating humpack whales frequent the waters around Hawaii. A wonderful experience to watch.
Another beautiful sunrise, guest photo, taken on Waimanalo Beach.
Sophie, our playful tail-waggin' pooch! Loves making new friends and tummy rubs!

Waimanalo, Oahu, Hawaii
Perfect for a quiet adult getaway, this very spacious studio apartment (900f²/84m²) includes a very roomy bathroom, spacious kitchen with huge granite slab countertop, plus two big decks. The unique 14 foot high vaulted ceilings makes this space even more spacious and airy. Enjoy the luxury of copious room to spread out and breathe.Hotel-grade king bed is dressed in luxurious bedding and exquisitely soft linens. Plentiful double glass doors and banks of large windows give the feeling of being in nature (in a tree, some say, hence the nickname 'treehouse'). Property is located just a one minute stroll to the ocean, close enough to hear the sound of gentle ocean waves.
