About Karin OMahony

My family and I moved to Waimānalo in 2009, after having loved it for many years. This is truly where the country meets the ocean. The Beachlots community (as it is known locally) is a wonderful neighborhood set right on the most exquisite beach and nestled right into the majestic Ko'olau Mountains. We love to share the rich culture and Aloha spirit of Hawaii with our guests.

Why Karin OMahony chose Waimanalo Beach

This lovely property is beautiful, inviting and comfortable. Lots of windows and sliding doors let the cool ocean breezes right inside. You can hear the waves crashing while you lie in bed. The rooms are spacious, furniture comfortable and excellent quality, the beds are comfy and kitchen open and easy to use. In less than 1 minute your toes are in the sand for whatever beach adventure you wish. The property is fenced and gated and has a lovely yard filled with tropical fruit and flowers.

What makes this estate unique

My youngest son was 11 when we moved here, each time we stepped onto the beach he would exclaim, "Its just like a picture!" Even the drive home from Costco (15- 20 minutes) takes my breath away every time I round the corner by the Makapu'u lighthouse and see the blues and greens of Waimānalo Bay. In addition to the physical beauty, the rich, spiritually connected, culture of Hawaii is a treasure and blessing to all who come to be enveloped in it.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I will truly miss this place - best family vacation we have ever experienced! Thank you so much for your hospitality.

Lovely setting for a Hawaiian week for six adults

  • 5 of 5

Six of us, all adults, visited for a week in mid April and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house was airy and cool, a bit quirky in places, but totally wonderful. The master bedroom was terrific and the other two were fine. The beds and bedding were comfortable and storage was more than adequate for our group. The only drawback to the bedrooms is that the walls are open at the ceiling level and not soundproof. The common areas are connected and lovely with a large well-equipped kitchen, dining area for six, and family room area. The only concern we had with the house was not being able to securely lock one of the the sliding doors and I believe the owner is addressing this issue. Outside there is a wrap-around patio, a gorgeous fenced yard, and a covered carport with an outside shower, clothing line, washer and dryer. There are lawn chairs, boogie boards, and other beach toys stacked neatly on the side of the carport. The location is very close to the beach, state park, and lifeguard. Shopping is minutes away and the airport and attractions in Honolulu were 30 to 40 minutes away. The owner, Karin, was available, responsive, and helpful. She even texted us during a thunderstorm and made sure we felt safe. We would gladly stay in this house again.

Very nice

  • 5 of 5

The home is great and did well accommodate our family of 5 with 3 kids.

The beach is 1 min walking distance, very quiet, perfect for body boarding (body boards were kindly provided by Karin) with shallow water on a long distance, perfect for kids.

Do not hesitate!

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Really great house with an amazing location. Right next to the beach. The only draw back was no real oven. Tried to used the microwave/oven but no luck. Other than that, perfect!

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed our lovely beach home! I'm so sorry I didn't know you needed help with the convection oven/microwave oven combination. I do leave the direction book but it sounds like you only used the microwave. Thanks for the feedback - I'll be sure to check in about oven.

Our stay at Karin's place couldn't have been better -- pure perfection! The house is beautiful and perfect for our 10 day stay. Karin stayed in contact with us and was always helpful. The nearby beach was amazing. We loved the Waimanalo community, and all of local attractions (Sea Life Park, local hikes, snorkeling, restaurants and shopping). Just a perfect setting between ocean and mountains. We appreciated having a washer/dryer, and enjoyed our mornings on the breathtaking lanai. Loved waking up to the mountain view and birds (& roosters) singing! We're already planning our next trip -- but this one will be hard to beat! Thanks so much to Karin for her hospitality and making this a trip of a lifetime! We were able to check everything off of our list for this trip.

Our new favorite place

  • 5 of 5

This is a spacious, clean and accommodating home. The owner was very attentive to all of our needs, and even let us know when fun events were happening nearby. It is a very "local" town, with a good grocery store within a mile, and a fantastic boogie boarding, castle building, swimming, kid friendly beach half a block from the rental. Worth every penny!

Waimanalo Beach
Car: recommended

Waimānalo is a quiet country beach town, yet only 30 minutes from Waikiki. You can enjoy a wide range of water sports right here in Waimānalo Bay - swimming, snorkeling, boogie boarding, surfing, kayaking and stand up paddle boarding. When the wind is right, there is windsurfing and kite boarding too! It's always a great beach for a walk (or jog) and beach combing - 5 miles of white sand to enjoy.

These are just a few of the reasons "Dr Beach" named Waimānalo Beach # 1.
