Property description

Welcome to 'Cottage by the Sea'---an ideal place for rest, relaxation and romance.

Imagine a place that feels so far off the beaten path you can still feel the spirit of 'Old Hawaii' gracing the rooms of this special Waimanalo gem.

It is simple yet perfect, complete with all the details that make a place truly comfortable and homey. The cottage is decorated with many personal touches, tropical and artistic with its own unique feeling.

Walk up a beautiful stone pathway; edged with colorful plants, tall palms, and banana trees, to enter into this very private enchanted domain.

The sun dappled porch calls to you, strewn with the fushia and purple petals of the bouganvillas that frame it, a symphony of birds singing their welcome. Feel the sense of peace, of coming to your home away from home.

A two minute walk down the road will take you to one of the most beautiful beaches in Hawaii. Sunrise is spectacular.
Enjoy a cup of coffee and watch the show!




A cool and romantic bedroom features a queen size bed with ceiling fan, and beautiful island art to create a sensual and very Hawaiian type of ambiance.

Guests repeatedly tell me how at home they feel here, with the cozy atmosphere and attention to detail so evident.
The cottage is nestled in a tropical garden filled with banana and papaya trees, colorful flowers and the fragrant aroma of plumerias floating on the ocean breeze. Birdsong and the sound of the ocean surf fill the garden with its own special music.
The location is ideal, in a residential country setting and only two houses from one of the most beautiful beaches on the island (in 2015 Dr. Beach named it one of the best beaches in the U.S.----in 2003 National Geographic named it one of the most beautiful beaches in the world!).

The beach is totally undeveloped, just miles of undisturbed beauty with the stunning grandeur of the Ko'olau Mountains hugging the coastline in a spectacular embrace.

All this is only a two minute walk from the cottage!

In the back there is a very private yard lush with tropical plants. The backyard has a propane barbecue grill with a dining table and a couple of lounge chairs by the little water fall, perfect for star gazing at night or lounging under the endless summer sun.

Welcome to a little piece of paradise. Restore your spirit and feel the peace within.

Let the sound of the waves caress you to sleep at night and embrace the morning with another perfect day at the beach.
