Hauula cottage description

Located off the beaten path on East Oahu, and tucked snugly between the Ko'olau mountains and the sleepy shores of Punalu'u, this boutique style home offers a charming three bedroom cottage where you and yours can relax in style and comfort.

The Space
Sits on one acre of grassy land in the country and is surrounded with tropical beauty. Close to beach and mountains.

Guest Access
Washer and dryer, parking, fire pit and star gazing. Lounge chairs, snorkel gear and beach umbrella.

Interaction with Guests
Caretaker shares property and is available as needed by phone. The yard care is extensive and you will likely cross paths while the caretakers are attending to the groundskeeping. You are renting the one story cottage and the two story adjacent cottage has a one bedroom suite which is rented separately or can be combined with an additional rental agreement if available. The two houses are joined with a common lanai. Lots of parking space on the back lawn makes for a relaxing and private feeling for coming and going.

The Neighborhood
Rural, nature, safe, convenient, quaint, quiet, beauty, mountains, hiking nearby, beach combing down the lane and across the road… five houses away. A stream with large trees create a canopy on the sand paved lane called Hulahula Place, which is lined with a few owner occupied cottages.

Getting around
Bus stops are minutes away by walking distance. Everyone usually has a rental car which is ideal.

Other Things to Note
Beaches are all along the surrounding area.

                              20 minutes from Oahu's famous North Shore

                              Located close to secluded waterfalls, art galleries, movie set tours, and Hawai’i's number one paid attraction--the Polynesian Cultural Center, which shares food, dance and traditional customs from island cultures throughout the entire South Pacific. Also nearby is the historic LDS temple, as well as Brigham Young University-Hawaii campus, where both cultural and collegiate productions dot the year-round calendar. Bonus: in twenty minutes you can be taking in some sun and surf on the North Shore at famous beaches like Sunset, Pipeline or Waimea. Don’t forget to pick up a chocolate haupia pie at Ted's Bakery on your way, or keep driving to Haleiwa for a taste of the worlds yummiest shave ice at Matsumoto's.


                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2002

                              About the owner: Dolly goes back and forth between being a full time and part time resident of Hawaii since 1996. Claiming it as home is a privilege. Even though throughout the past two decades she has made a home out of everything from an RV traveling across America or a dorm room in China to a villa in the Middle East or Africa... this Hawaii home is her favorite. She shares it because it was an amazing gift to receive in the first place.

                              Why the Owner Chose Hauula:
                              Dolly and Norman agree that it's hard to take credit for finding such a rare piece of paradise, because it sort of found them. Formerly this property was a Hawaiian homestead and recently, the property had not changed hands in 70 years and was not even on the market. Serendipitously, circumstances unfolded which allowed them stewardship over this piece of paradise. Renting the home and allowing the Wedding Cottage business was apparently fate for me,' says Dolly. 'It’s what I do when I'm on autopilot. I made it welcoming and people just started asking me to let them rent it.”

                              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                              It's a rare thing to have a clear, flat one acre back yard full of amazing views and hardy grass. Add to that a charming cottage and we become a little irresistible.
