Can't Wait to Go Back!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay for our family vacation. My wife and I along with our 11 year old daughter spent 8 days at the cottage. The location was fantastic as everything was an easy drive. Each day we were here, we were able to visit so many places and sights that the island had to offer. We visited Hanauma Bay, Dole Plantation, Punchbowl, Makaha Beach, North Shore, among others. The location of the cottage allowed for easy day trips to see the entire island. The most beautiful of all the beaches was actually right across the street, just steps away. We spent many mornings enjoying a cup of coffee while sitting on the beach during sunrise and finished most of our days with a quick, relaxing swim right there.

Another of the many reasons we would stay here again was the fact that you can wake up and prepare breakfast to start your day versus having to eat at a restaurant every meal during your trip. This definitely saved some money in the long run as well. We were also able to cook dinner on the gas grill at the cottage.

The last and most important reason we would stay here again is the owners of the cottage. From the first inquiry we made regarding availability, they were so helpful and answered all of our questions. Upon arrival, my family were truly greeted as though we were members of their family. We felt so welcomed and yet never once felt that we weren't given our own privacy. In fact, on a personal note, we wish we could have spent more time "talking story". They were very willing to share local knowledge (especially where to get the freshest fish to cook on the grill!) as well as suggestions of other sights to see.

I would absolutely recommend staying at this beach cottage and can't wait to see our new friends again!

Relaxing and beautiful, inside and out!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect home base for a "girfriends getaway." There were only two of us, but the cottage would be comfortable for 3-4 people. The location was in a quiet residential area, a 15-minute drive from multiple commercial areas with restaurants, grocery stores, etc. The highlight was the beautiful beach, just a short walk down the driveway and across the street. When we weren't at the beach or driving around the island, the multiple outdoor spaces on the property were beautiful and relaxing. Highly recommended!

Great Stay, Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Been to the islands many times and love this area. Found the cottage and had a very nice stay. Owners were welcoming, super friendly and accommodating. Cottage was nice and clean. Slept well with a good cross breeze. Amazing location! Literally across the street from Waimanalu beach. It's not a touristy beach. Quiet, open and beautiful. Nice easy scenic drive down to Hawaii Kai. Was nice to take day trips from here. Great relaxing stay.

The owners were wonderful and pointed us in the right direction to enjoy the best local seafood, the great local market, etc. Great swimming and kayaking across the road from the cottage. World class snorkeling a few miles away. Quiet beautiful beach. Koa and Rose were always available for questions and very respectful of us. We stayed 4 nights, it was spotlessly clean and I didn't want to leave to go to the Big Island! although we had fun there too.

Property is clean, nicely decorated, close to the beach, peaceful and quiet.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and our hosts were wonderful and helpful. We were out of the hustle and bustle of downtown, but close enough to drive to Honolulu for tours and shopping. It was wonderful to wake to the sounds of birds each morning and have the beach right across the road. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Authentic Hawaiian Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We are so lucky to have come upon this lovely cottage owned by such warm people. Kind Koa and the beautiful Ms. Rose were so accommodating and made our first time in Hawaii a lovely experience. The cottage was quaint with a pretty gazebo you can relax in and enjoy a beer, or read a book. The world famous waimanalo beach was a crosswalk away . We rented a car and did our own grocery shopping, cooked our own meals which helped save a lot, and we had all the time to visit the famous spots and swim in the beaches and had the warm cottage to come home to. They have all the stuff you need in the kitchen pantry and you can buy whatever you need at the supermarket five minutes drive away. A big Mahalo to Rose for our Royal treat at the Chief's Luau where we had a blast. A must see whenever in Hawaii. We hope to be back again soon.
