About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2 adults and 2 children comfortably)

NOTE: As of January 2018 construction of a new house is underway ocean side of the property and could possibly be disruptive to your visit with construction noise. Contractors will only work between the hours of 8am to 3pm weekdays. As the work site is fairly removed from the cottage, I believe the noise will be minimal, but I want to make all interested parties aware of this issue. Please contact me for more information if you have concerns before booking as this is all new to me too!

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

Very Clean and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The owner makes a point of providing all the amenities that make a short or long stay comfortable, I.e., lots of fresh towels, including beach towels, shampoos, coffee filters, outlets on night stands for charging cell phones, etc. The peaceful view of colorful crotin leaves out the side Windows make for a very lovely environment.

A perfect stay, away from the noise of Waikiki but the beach just a few steps away.

  • 5 of 5

This quiet spacious cottage is wonderful. Very clean and nicely furnished, close to restaurants and shopping. It's a delight to wake up to birds singing, gather up the provided beach chairs and walk to the beach for the day. Thank you, Ron, for providing such comfort and a place I happily call home when I'm there.

Peaceful retreat, conveniently located

  • 5 of 5

The Cottage is ideal for a get away to Oahu. The beach is a 2 minute walk away and was very calm and inviting for a swim or wading. There were very few people at the beach. Hawaii-Kai has all the amenities (Restaurants, rentals, gas, Coscto, Safeway) you will need and you can stay away from downtown Honolulu. The house is also very near to many scenic attractions like Hanauma Bay and Sandy Beach. The cottage is humble, clean and comfortable.

Beautiful Cottage by the Bay delivers as advertised!

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate enough to stay at Ron's cottage on our recent trip to Oahu. The cottage is attached to the main house with views of the garden and large windows that open to enjoy the trade winds. The bay is just steps away and we enjoyed several sunsets while watching the boats and evening kayakers on the bay. The location is far enough away from Honolulu to not have a traffic issue and is close to snorkeling, hiking and a wide assortment of restaurants. Ron is a great host and the cottage is stocked with everything you could need including beach chairs, towels and a cooler. If we come back to Oahu, this is the only place we would stay. Mahalo Ron!
