Nestled in the beachside residential community of Lanikai in Kailua, this home is beautifully appointed and has all the creature comforts that you would expect from an upscale, beachside home. It is a separate and distinct 2 bedroom, 1.5 bath cottage. Upstairs is a full kitchen and a living/dining area with a convenient half bath. Downstairs are two bedrooms: the master with a queen-sized bed and the second with two twins. They share a jack and jill full bathroom. The home is fully furnished, including a TV, books, games, toys as well as beach towels, linens, and an initial supply of paper products.
We have a very large monkey pod tree, spanning two properties that is home to large number of songbirds (manu mele) - our morning serenade!!
It is a five to seven minute walk to the world famous Lanikai beach which is the best swimming beach in all of Hawai’i. The town of Kailua is a seven minute drive, making us close to shopping, some great restaurants and the Kailua Beach Center which has kayaks and other ocean toys.

Nice clean yellow cottage
Nancy was helpful. Check in time was early and offered for us to stay later.
Really nice lady. Yellow cottage sits in back of the property very peaceful.
Was exceptionally clean . Had everything you would need as kitchen and bath ,
Walk to beach was not to long. Nice suburb area to walk through. If driving parking was not to bad.
Lanai Kai is a beautiful beach. Great snorkeling. calm waters
In love with this cute cottage
I loved my stay in the little yellow cottage. The house is in a great location; a quick walk to the beach and the Pill Box trail head. Nancy is a great hostess and the house was adorable with all of the amenities. Wish my trip was longer, but i'll definitely be back! Thanks for everything Nancy! Give Bella dog some pets for me!
Clean and comfortable
Stayed here for a week with Grandma, Grandpa, Mom (me), and 1 year old baby on the verge of walking. The place was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. Big bonus for me that Nancy had a travel crib, so we didn't have to haul ours. She had all the beach toys and towels you could need. Convenient to Kailua Town and beach. Nancy was friendly and welcoming, and even brought my daughter a gift.
The only negative was the mosquitos: there were so many in the yard outside that we couldn't spend time out there, which was frustrating as usually my daughter spends 75% of her time outside, and the pictures of the shaded yard were one reason we chose this place. We had to be careful when opening the door to not let them inside. I got eaten alive the first night! We didn't see mosquitos anywhere else around. (Our stay was mid-April).
A very good experience overall though -- recommended!
Many thanks for staying in the little yellow cottage. I’m pleased that you found it comfortable for you and your family. Besides the pack n’ play, I hope that you also made use of the high chair, baby gates, toys and children’s books.
Concerning your comment about mosquitoes: they are ever present in the tropics, but since February have been particularly annoying. The culprit is an unseasonal spate of rainy weather that has drenched Oahu for the past few months. There is little any of us can do, but wait for the warm sun of summer. Fortunately, mosquitoes stay away from beautiful Lanikai Beach!
Heaven on Earth
The Little Yellow Cottage is a piece of heaven here on earth. The cottage is well equipped, clean and bright. The grounds are like being in a tropical forest with lots of trees and beautiful song birds. The beach is less than a 10 minute walk and there is some beach equipment for use at the property. Nancy is a wonderful host and made us feel welcome. We plan to come back. Thanks for everything Nancy.
Beautiful, relaxing, private
I very much enjoyed my stay at this property...and most certainly will reserve here again!
Beautiful home with comfortable furnishings, very quiet and private setting, great location off the "Lanikai loop", and Nancy was simply wonderful to deal with before the trip and to talk to during the stay. All pictures are very accurate of the space. I loved the 2-story aspect (1st floor + lower level) with the bedrooms being located on the lower level, as this allowed for an even quieter sleeping space with greater privacy.
Absolutely lovely cottage!
This immaculately clean and comfy cottage was the perfect place to just sit back and relax. Beds were comfy, water nice and hot and the cottage itself is beautiful. In the morning, grab a cup of coffee then go sit on the front porch and listen to the birdsong. It's amazing. Just a short walk to the beach and you'll see turquoise blue ocean that just begs you to jump in. Kailua has wonderful shops (I highly recommend Lanikaui Bath and Body if you love scented lotions) and it's easy to navigate in the area. Nancy was a wonderful host from booking to checkout! In fact, I can't think of one negative thing to say!
Our most unique activity is just swimming in the calm, reef-protected Pacific Ocean at Lanikai beach, only a 5-7 minute walk from the little yellow. Down the road at the beach center, more fun can be had by renting kayaks, stand-up paddle boards as well as a bicycle or two!
