I was fortunate to spend 12 days at Hale Nalo for a much needed vacation with my husband. We absolutely loved staying at this little gem in Waimanalo. Our hostess, Herlinda, has created a charming, quiet environment for her guests to enjoy. Upon arrival to the Garden Room, we were greeted with fresh fruit from the garden and a spotless environment. The Garden Room had everything we needed for our stay, including the use of a washer and dryer, beach chairs, snorkeling equipment and beach mats and towels. There's a sweet private garden in the back with a grill and picnic table.
Hale Nalo is located in a residential community on the west side of Oahu within a short walk to the beach. Although we were a short drive from Honolulu, the ambiance made us feel as though we were far, far away from the heavily populated tourist area of the island.
Herlinda is a delight! She gave us information about everything from local eats to what time to show up for snorkeling at Hanauma Bay (very early!). She was there and accessible when needed. We're very glad we got to meet her and stay in her one of her lovely Garden Rooms. Hale Nalo is exactly what we were looking for and precisely what we needed for our vacation. I'd stay again in a heartbeat!
