"We just arrived home and couldn't finalize our trip without taking time to thank you so much!
Your home is lovely and SO PERFECT for our family. It seemed that everything we could possibly need was at our fingertips... Everything from the ease and casual comfort of the layout to the extra special accommodations you made for us (the XBox, Apple TV, new snorkel gear and ping pong table)
made this a trip to remember.
Our favorite thing was the outdoor shower. All 5 of us took all our showers outside each day!
My husband and ALL 3 boys said this was the best vacation they have had."

"We have just returned from our stay in Makapu'u Hale. The house is exactly as shown in the photos. The views are breathtaking, and you can't get closer to the ocean! We loved sitting on the lanai, watching the surf and the sea turtles. The location is convenient to many of the island's attractions.
The whole house is nicely appointed. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes and cookware- there is even a variety of basic spices in the cupboard. The main bath is very large and well stocked with the essentials as well as some extras- like the hairdryer, curling iron, and straightening iron in the drawer. The second bath is a sink and tub/shower combo en-suite. The second toilet is in the laundry room and separated from the bedroom by only a curtain- so it got very little use. The beds were comfortable, though somewhat creaky. The air conditioning units worked great throughout the house. We found the house to be ample space for our family of 4 and we were very comfortable there.
For the price and location, this place is great. It certainly beats staying in a hotel with the oppressive crowds of Waikiki! Waimanalo Beach is a 5 minute drive and we rarely saw more than 30 people on the beach. It was lovely!
The downside of the property is the noise level. You are only feet from the highway and the traffic is constant.
Also, it is important to realize that you are sharing the property with two other rental homes and their tenants. This is great if your co-tenants are good, but not so great if they make a lot of noise or are otherwise difficult.
We wouldn't hesitate to return to this rental on future trips to Oahu and we would certainly recommend it to others!"

"We enjoyed staying at Rick and Tammy's in Waimanalo - away from the craziness of Honolulu and Waikiki, but close enough to anything we wanted to do (e.g. watching the sunrise and boogie boarding at Waimanalo Beach, snorkeling at Hanauma Bay, eating poke in Kailua, drinking beer at Kona Brewing, and touring Kauloa Ranch). The place comes with anything you could need, including cooking supplies. But what we, my husband and I as a pretty active couple, loved the most was the many "toys" we could use - we used the snorkel gear almost every day, and the boogie boards were so fun. We didn't get a chance to use the kayaks and paddle boards, but I'm sure we wouldn't enjoyed those as well. We also loved their sweet little dogs, Koa and George, and Tigger the cat. There is no AC, but we slept perfectly cool with the nice overhead fan. Overall, we had a wonderful experience, and wish we could have stayed longer. Thanks, Tammy and Rick!"

Great location for a beach wedding and reception all in one area
"I had my fantastic beach wedding on beautiful Waimanalo Beach! My day was perfect and magical. I am so happy to have found Waimanalo Beach Cottages & Weddings. It was a one stop shop they had every thing I needed for a perfect wedding day and reception. The wedding staff was great and very professional.
The cottages were perfect for me and my family and friends! We had many BBQ's and lots of beach time. We could see and hear the waves from our cottages and the best sunrises! Oh there are banana trees with fresh banana ready to eat. The owner was great and responded to all our questions.
We had a great time and we will return on our 1 year wedding anniversary.
Christy & Jadd"
