Space 1,250 sq. ft.

Minimum Stay 4 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Located on a Golden Sandy Beach Cove, we are direct ocean & cove front. One of the few where sea turtles rest daily. Relax in the shade of palms or swim in the cove with the turtles. A great place to enjoy the Hawaiian sunsets, in fact the point we are on is known as Sunset Point. The comfy/clean 3 bedroom 1-1/2 bath cottage is perfect for couples or small families to enjoy the sights and sounds of the Ocean & visit the island Of Oahu.

Still close enough to Waikiki for a day trip, but far enough away to see the 'real Hawaii'. Amenities on site are kayaks, snorkel

gear and Boogie boards. The home is our personal weekend getaway

so we keep it well stocked with all the conveniences of home.

We have fish ponds and tiki's to enjoy but of course the ocean & sunsets are the main focal point for all who visit. Tiki torches are available to create the ambiance of old Hawaii and you are far from street noise so the ocean will rock you to sleep and the birds will wake you in the morning. Many have called it paradise and repeat visitors are very important to us. Many return year after year.

Private Family fun away from all the tourist

  • 5 of 5

My family and I are actually still here, but leaving in a few hours. So her is our overview and opinion of the past week here. First of all Tom communicates very well from the first day you book the house. He connected us with a neighbor to show us the house since he and his family were going to be on vacation as well.

The drive to the location is about an 1hr and 30 min but is a very beautiful drive. You will drive through some rougher areas, but remember you are staying where the locals stay, not a 5 star resort.

Upon arrival we were settled in and blown away by the view and proximity to the beach. YOU CANNOT GET ANY CLOSER TO YOUR PRIVATE BEACH IN HAWAII. I brought my 7 and 10 year olds and they loved it.

If you are wanting a private get away in a well maintained home that is clean and friendly this is the place for you. There are air conditioners in the main bedroom and living room, but rarely needed. You have basic cable and good wifi. This is the placed to relax and enjoy the beach.

On the other hand if you are planning on going to various locations throughout the Island and shopping. This location is very far from the north shore and the windward side of the island. Around rush hour the traffic does get very bad.


We had a great time and are already discussing booking this house again!

We loved it

Thanks Tom, we had a fantastic time loved the location away from the bustle of Honolulu . Missing the sound of the waves, the beautiful beach at our doorstep, the turtles the friendly locals, the sunsets Wish we could have stayed longer and hope we can return next year. Everything we needed was provided and more. Saw whales offshore from the verandah on our last night which made a perfect end to our stay. highly recommended

Wonderful house with all the toys you ever wanted or needed!

  • 4 of 5

The house has all the the things you need already there. From pots to towels just arrived buy some food and have fun. Be prepared for a long drive to Honolulu or Waikiki but the turtles on the beach make up for it.

Best place we've ever stayed

  • 5 of 5

We arrived during a huge windstorm and the power was out, pitch dark, after midnight. The owner met us at the house with lanterns and flashlights and made us feel very safe and comfortable on a stormy night. When we awoke in the morning we finally saw that we were truly in paradise. The turquoise waves crashed in just beyond the front lawn, which has numerous coconut palms waving in the breeze. Right beside the house was a beautiful sandy beach in a little cove. Green sea turtles came to bask on the beach nearly every day. Birds, flowers, waves, mountains... Astounding beauty everywhere. And magnificent sunsets! The house was very roomy for 6 adults, all the beds comfy. The kitchen has nearly everything you could want for cooking, and we barbecued our dinners nearly every evening. The front deck is probably the best feature of the house, a place from which to view the beauty, to eat, to drink, to just relax. About a 10 minute drive south there are really good grocery stores, and it was really wonderful to mix with the locals. When we visited Honolulu and Waikiki we were so grateful that we were not staying there and were able to return to our quiet paradise. We returned home to Canada and lots of snow, but I can still see those crashing, frothy, turquoise waves.
