Relax in the ZEN Treehouse

This magnificent suite was requested by the iconic Condé Nast Traveler. After seeing it, it was called “the perfect place to stay in Waimanalo” in an issue of ISLANDS Magazine. In 2015, Waimanalo was ranked the “Top Beach in the US”. We are about 100 steps to this beach.

High vaulted ceilings provide copious space to unwind. Open gables and banks of windows and doors provide intimate access to the palm trees and mountains, to sounds of the ocean and birds, to fragrances of the sea, pikake and frangipani, all which delight the senses. (Guests nicknamed this studio the  “ZEN Treehouse”.)

An enormous granite countertop lends itself to casual dining, while the over-sized stone bathroom has a huge walk-in shower with a river rock floor (fabulous on bare feet) and an incredible rain shower head that must be felt to be believed… the shower becomes yet another sensual treat.

Spacious east-west decks provide stunning views of the Ko’olau Mountains and are the perfect place to enjoy your morning brew, catch a few rays or to savor a glass of wine while watching a sleepy moonrise.

The sumptuous premium king bed—even some of our self-proclaimed “bed snob” guests have raved about our choice of mattress—is dressed in the coolest 100%  pure cotton bed linens we could find.

Rates start at $289/night plus taxes (13.96%) and cleaning fee. Ask about monthly rates.
