Cute Cottage with a great view!
Cute Cottage with a great view!
This cottage was the best find ever! On the beach away from the hussle and bussle of Waikiki. Beautiful beach, snorkeling was great with lots of fish and turtles. Cottage was clean, well equipped and comfortable. Loved the view from the large windows overlooking the blue waters of the Pacific Ocean. Wish we could have stayed another week the atmosphere relax and scenery were so relaxing. Henrietta was so friendly and helpful when making the reservation. During our stay I knew I could make contact with her at any time if I had any problems or questions. Pictures and information on this rental were spot on. We were not disappointed and highly recommend this cottage rental to anyone wishing to experience the slow life and relaxation that the island has to offer. It's cute, compact yet just the right amount of space to unwind and feel comfortable with my husband and two teenaged grandchildren . For your eating experience, we recommend North Shore Tacos just a few minutes north and Giovanni's Shrimp Truck further north close to Turtle Bay Resort. If you make it in to Waikiki we recommend the Cheese Burger Waikiki restaurant, great food and ambiance. Thank you Henrietta for sharing your little piece of paradise with us - Mahalo

No better place to call "Home away from home."

We recently took an 8 day vacation to this wonderful island. (Oahu) We wanted a nice quite place to base our activities out of. This wonderful little cottage was the perfect place. Being right next to a multi story condo was in fact, a plus. Secure, reserved parking right next to the cottage was so handy. The second floor location gave a view out the picture window that was picture post card every morning. To me this was an ideal location for any activities on the island. And when we just wanted to hang out, it was perfect. The beach is right there. Snorkeling with the turtles, working on our tans, cooking out. I can't remember a better, more relaxing vacation. There is nothing like going to sleep or waking up to the gentle sounds of the waves. And the breakwater several hundred yards out had it's own amazing sound. 10 minute drive to the PCC. (look it up:) And in either direction there are local eateries that will make your mouth water. This was my first experience with VRBO and I have to say it was the smoothest, most enjoyable arraignment I have ever done regarding lodging. The owner answered all of my questions and concerns. She was a delight to work with. The exterior photo on the web doesn't do this place justice. Even better in person! And so many personal touches inside I felt right at home. I almost didn't write a review because it will make it harder to find an opening in the future. LOL If and when I get the opportunity to return to this wonderful island, rest assured I will be staying here. Thanks so much for the happy memories.

This was a great place to stay! Location was excellent if you are trying to avoid the crowds and bussiness of Waikiki/Honolulu area. The beach was private, we never saw more than 5-6 people on the beach at one time. The ONE day we visit Waikiki we were bumping elbows with people everywhere we went (beach and shops/restaurants). The view from the cottage is AMAZING...beach on one side, mountains on the other! The cottage was fully stocked with everything we needed from cooking supplies, to beach stuff, to cleaning supplies and toiletries. If we go back to Oahu we will defintely be staying there again!

Loved this place!

Our family stayed there for one week with a 4-year-old, it was amazing! Private beach with no waves (awesome for children) and snorkeling. All the beach stuff (umbrella, beach towels, snorkeling gear, fins included, so you barely need to bring any stuff with you). Sunrise view every morning. Cool spot for bbq and nice swimming pool. Very quite and comfort place. The window view is amazing! We was enjoying every meal at that house with that view. It is the best part. Sleeping with the sound of crashing waves is so relaxing.. The owner of the place is a very very sweet and nice Lady!! Enjoy!

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this place!! You really feel at home. LOL...My heart breaks as I write this because I NEVER wanted to leave. Im trying to convince my boyfriend to hurry up and take me back..LOL Anyways...this place has everything you need from boogie boards, to movies, guide books, they even had stuff to wrap your packages. They really did think of everything!! My favorite was waking up to the beach which is like seconds out your doorstep. At night you can hear the waves...I slept so peacefully. I love this this place because its not all crazy like Waikiki. If you stay here you'll love it! Just know i'll be super jealous :( I will definately be back!!!! :)

Our vacation plans changed last minute and we had to scramble to arrange something new. Fortunately we came upon this site and cottage. I was a bit apprehensive at first thinking I may get a run down room with a dingy bed. I could not be more wrong. The place is older but very well kept, showing pride in ownership. Clean and confortable for my family of 3. The queen size bed in nice and comfy, sourrounded by natures A/C. Its amazing waking up to the sunrise with the view of the blue sea. The studio is quite spacious, comfortable and functional.Great bonus here is that it comes with whatever you need for a day at the beach. From chairs to snorkelling stuff. No need to haul or buy a thing The location is simply outstanding. Right on the beach we have had our best sleeps of our lives falling asleep with the sound of the surf and the fresh Pacific breeze. The beach is private and you feel like you are in your own private paradise. It beats hand on falling over each other for a spot in the sun, here no need to reserve a spot. Most days we were on our own!!! My family and I can speak enough for this place. You are a car ride away from the hustle and bustle of Honolulu if you want to do the touristy thing and yet here you feel you are in the old Hawaii. A magical, not congested, void of souvenir hunting floks private paradise. Our only regret is that we only spend a week here. Next time it will be at least 2. Its that good and I cant wait to return. Thanks to the owners for giving us memories that will last a lifetime and will keep us looking forward to repeat the following year.

I just had to go back to this web site once more to see the beautiful beach. I just spent 10 days at this cottage and it was much to short a time. Everything you need is here without the crowds and traffic of Waikiki. The weather was perfect I will return and recommed this to all my friends

Enjoyed our stay very much. Punaluu is very peaceful and the beach is wonderful. We found the best unmolested coral formation 100 feet right off of the beach one afternoon - lots of fish surrounding it. The condominium unit was just right for the three of us, though it could sleep four easily. Our daughter used the sofa bed, and my wife and I enjoyed the bedroom with the wonderful windows that opened on three sides of the room. Each night, there were cooling winds that blew off of the ocean, then a wonderful sunrise each morning. The unit was spotless and all cookware, towels, kitchen supplies, dishes, etc. were in place and clean. We spent much time on the east and north side of Oahu, avoiding Honolulu except for a couple of hours at Waikiki (fun but crowded and the water was murky), and an afternoon in Chinatown, which was great (Dim Sum for lunch!). I highly recommend Henrietta's condominium unit in Punaluu. Thank you, The Watts Family

A wonderful cottage. Close to all the activities on the Windward side and the North shore, and only a 30 minute drive to Honolulu, but very quiet and peaceful. We loved being on the beach, and found the cottage to be very comfortable with every thing we needed to have a very enjoyable stay. Thanks for a wonderful vacation.
