BEACH FRONT Estate Guest Cottage w/HEATED Pool Sandy Beach and Hot Springs Spa

Bedrooms 1
Space 800 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 6 nights


About the property

House, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Hale Honu means 'Home of the Turtle' and it is with good cause we chose this name, as the turtles arrive each afternoon to meet and greet our guests.

This charming 1 bedroom, 1 bath Guest Cottage is part of an ocean front gated estate. The cottage is just steps to the sand, with full ocean frontage views. Life doesn't get much better than this secluded beachfront cottage which will become your 'true hawaii' oasis.

Located on a quarter acre lot on the beach in secluded Waialua/Mokuleia, this is one of the most requested vacation rentals on the island of Oahu for a romantic getaway for 2 people (maximum).

The sound of the waves will provide tranquility to you from every room in the Cottage. Please read our unsolicited Guest Comments and then decide for yourself and email/call Pat.

The cottage is quiet, private, casually elegant, completely remodeled and upgraded with continuous improvements every year.

Amenities include full kitchen, quartzite floors, granite countertops, and Sub Zero Refrigerator/Freezer Drawers, Fisher& Paykel Dish Drawers, Viking Gas Range/Oven and separate laundry w/front loading Samsung W/D. Secure Wi-Fi enabled and Satellite receivers/recorders and HD TV's in living room and bedroom.

Note from Pat: Oceanside mossrock pool with deep blue ceramic tile was recently heated (solar system January 2013). It is a salt water system so the water is very soft and luxurious and void of the harsh chemicals in most pools. You will love the feel of the pool after a day here on the North can sit in the pool and watch the Pacific Ocean/beach.

Hono (Turtle) video of our ohana (family) of turtles is under development. This ohana is directly in our front yard ('the beach') and we are very happy to have them with us 12 months of the year. You are sure to fall in love with our federally protected and endangered Hawaiian Sea Green Turtles. Our Guests never want to leave the Guest Cottage or our property as your comfort is our #1 focus.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are so glad that our daughter found this beautiful place for us to spend our time out here on Oahu. Everything was perfect! The beach, the surf, the view, the wonderful accommodations, etc etc etc. And thank you for providing us with insight into what the surrounding area has to offer and some recreational equipment to help us enjoy it!

A wedding, family, and a vacation in paradise.

  • 5 of 5

We came to Oahu for a wedding and turned that into a wonderful family memory thanks to Pat and the lovely home on the North Shore. Nestled along a beautiful beach, with fantastic views of the surf and turtles, this home has it all. Pat has thought of every amenity, and then some.

Five stars, many thanks, and mahalo for the Island hospitality!

A wonderful time

  • 5 of 5

Great location on the North Shore close to, but far away enough from commercial activity. Five minutes away from Haleiwa, surf capitol of the world. Private and comfortable, with every amenity you will need. Plan to return soon.

Lovely Home!

  • 5 of 5

If you want a tranquil beach front vacation, you won't do any better than this lovely home. Pat has created an oasis inside and out! Complete with a wonderfullly stocked kitchen, comfortable bedroom and bath, a patio made for lounging, inviting pool and sweet outdoor shower. I am hard pressed to think of any additions to her amenities that are needed. We totally enjoyed the quiet neighborhood while still being close to a variety of wonderful beaches and just an hour from all the sites in Honolulu. It is, all in all, a gem!

Amazing; beautiful property & experience on Oahu

  • 5 of 5

Don & I want to thank you & tell you how much we enjoyed your beautiful cottage. It was an amazing experience & just exactly what we needed.

We certainly hope to visit you again in the future, your place is the one we will compare everything else to now & we have not stopped talking about how much we enjoyed everything.

We saw a seal on the beach up at the State Park to the west of you & of course, the sea turtles. Just beautiful.

So, many blessings to you, your lovely partner Jan & your beautiful doggies.

We had a wonderful stay. The property was clean and the pictures well reflected the rental. Pat went out of her was to meet us and show us through the property late at night due to our flight to the island. She was very helpful in showing us information that she had gathered of places to see and eat. Exploring the island by day and relaxing with a glass of wine and a grilled steak was just what we wanted. I would recommend this place to a couple that wanted to get away from it all.

Wailua beach house

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been vacationing yearly in Hawaii, mostly Maui, for 30 years. This was our first visit to Oahu and I have to say that Pat's Hale Honu is one of the best places we have stayed anywhere in the state. The amenities and privacy of this location are in no way overstated on this web site. The setting and views are remarkable. When our plans bring us back to Oahu, this will be the first place we book. Thanks Pat, it was really great!
