Beautiful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had the nicest time staying here. Rob was a perfect host and the cottage was beautifully furnished and so clean with all the amenities you can think of. Close enough to anywhere you wanted to go in Honolulu but so peaceful. We looked forward to coming back every night after our busy days.

The pathway to the beach is something we did every day. What a wonderful find!!!

We hope to back again soon

Great location, cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is just as described. A great location in a quiet neighborhood, only steps away from a nice secluded beach with fantastic views. The room was comfortable and Ron was an excellent host, and he did not steer us wrong in his restaurant recommendations! We very much enjoyed our stay here!

Ron is a wonderful host - very friendly and easy to talk to. The cottage is private enough for comfort, but has many homey additions that make the stay just that extra bit nicer. The location is also great - far away from the hustle and bustle of the city, but easily reached with a short drive. Plus having a very quiet beach just two minutes’ walk away is ideal!

The rental is exactly as described. The location is great, and it is very clean and private. There is even a private patio to have your morning coffee on, or grab the beach chair and walk down the drive to the beach. Ron was a great host

Ron,s property met all our needs.

  • 5 of 5

Ron,s property allowed us to be near Honolulu but away from the crowds.

We were close to the beautiful beaches. We took our granddaughters

to Shark,s Cove for a day of snorkling. We experienced the food trucks,

in my opinion one of the best things about visiting O'ahu. Ron was a wonderful host. We were able to meet all our food needs across the

street in a most covenient shopping center We can add excellent restaurants to the list.
