About the Property
2 bedrooms, 2-1/2 bath, sleeps 5
Experience Hawaii like a native!
Miles of quiet beaches for walking and shell collecting. This is truly a special area of the islands, remote yet only a short drive into the world famous surf town of Haleiwa, and just a 45-minute drive to the excitement of Honolulu and Waikiki.
This lovely guest cottage on a gated beachfront lot is shared with the owner's home. There is an enclosed outdoor hot shower and toilet (in addition to the 1-1/2 baths in the cottage). Comfortably furnished with beautiful landscaping, and only steps to the quiet, secluded, sandy beach in this very quiet neighborhood.
Watch whales, turtles, reef fish, or go snorkeling in shallow water that covers the coral reefs. Watch the sun set over the ocean.
The cottage is on a private road, away from the traffic and congestion of Sunset Beach. The beach is one of the best on the island--very private and excellent for swimming and snorkeling.
I take personal checks or PayPal. A $500 security deposit will reserve your dates. Full payment is due 30 days in advance of your arrival date. Your security deposit will be return 14 days after you leave. I charge $225/night for the first two people and $25 per additional person ($250 for 3 people, $275 for 4, $300 for 5). There is also a $125 cleaning fee, 4.712% excise tax and 9.25% hotel tax (both of which you will pay at a hotel as well).
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.
Paying with a credit card on VRBO protects your payment for up to $10,000 against listing fraud. We recommend completing your booking on VRBO.Learn more

There are two houses on the property. The rental house is closer to the road with an ocean view from the patio. My parents live in the main house closest to the beach. They are friendly and quiet people who putter in the yard and sometimes have friends over for dinner. The two houses are close together and some renters feel like they're "in" my parents' space when they use the "common" areas like the grill, outdoor shower, yard, etc. Please don't feel this way. My parents are used to having renters and it doesn't bother them so don't let it bother you. However, both my parents and my neighbors would appreciate quiet after 9:00 p.m. We do not allow parties, weddings or camping. Check-in is 4:00 PM, check-out is 11:00 AM.
The house will be reserved for you as soon as the $500 security deposit is received. The $500 deposit will be returned 14 days after you leave (minus any damage to the property or extra cleaning fee for excessive amount of sand left in the house). The "subtotal" (daily rate + taxes + cleaning fee) is due 30 days before your arrival date. If today's date is less than 30 days from your arrival, the "total" amount is due ($500 security deposit + subtotal). Once I receive your $500 security deposit, I will email a standard rental agreement. I ask that you sign and date the agreement and return it to me. After I received the signed agreement, I will email instructions on how to get the key for the house, general information letter about the house, restaurant and sightseeing suggestions, and directions to the house from the airport.
Let me know if you would like to see a copy of the rental agreement. Lori
Owner's cancellation policy:
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.

This property is located 5 miles from Historic Haleiwa town (the surfing capitol of the world). It is on a private residential road with minimal traffic, away from the congestion of Sunset Beach. The beach is protected by a reef that makes for wonderful swimming and snorkeling. We don't have the huge waves and undertow of Sunset Beach and we don't have jellyfish like at the beaches at Laie. Mokuleia is truly the best beach on Oahu.
Year Purchased: 1962
About the owner: This is my family's private home. My parents live in the separate main house. Since I live in Texas, and use the 'Keiki Hale' (children's house) just a few weeks a year, we rent it out for short-term vacations. This property will always stay in my family as my husband and I plan to retire here and my kids love it.
Why the Owner Chose Waialua, O'ahu, HI, USA:
Our beach is exceptional for its beauty and privacy. You can sit on the beach for hours and not see another person. It's great for snorkeling and swimming because there's a reef that protects the beach. We live on a private residential street that is quiet (except for the occasional wild chicken).
