Great little cottage on a calm beach
What a cozy little cottage this is! The fact that you can just walk out to the lovely beach is unbeatable and the location is great. Tess was a wonderful host, very responsive and helpful! We had a great time!
It was so nice hosting a couple with a toddler and infant. Please come back again, or check out my other property, the oceanfront condo on secluded beach - corner- AC when you come back with the kiddies!
Cozy cottage with fabulous location and generous amenities
Tess's cottage is located just a few minutes' drive from beautiful Hanauma Bay and is near numerous grocery stores and restaurants. A short walk out the front door leads to a nice stretch of sandy beach. The cottage is well equipped with everything you could need for a comfortable and relaxing holiday: snorkeling gear, beach chairs, kayaks, paddle boards, a cooler, and much more. Tess was a wonderful communicator and sent us ample information about the area and local attractions. Highly recommended.
Aloha Ahna and Hau'oli Mahakiki Hou!
One of these days you may be back and I would love to host you again. Thank you for the lovely review!
