The reception gift of fruit was very nice. Also being greeted by the owner upon arrival was extra special. We enjoyed our stay and easy access to beaches.

Relaxing Retreat across from a beautiful and quiet beach

  • 5 of 5

We had the perfect 3 day escape to the cottage Koa and his wife Rose designed for their guests. There is a lovely covered sitting area just outside of it with plenty of seating to relax in and the cottage is comfortably furnished with all the necessities -including a basket with fresh fruit and coffee. Although they live in the main house in front of the cottage they were perfect, gracious hosts and did not ever intrude on our privacy and generously allowed us to leave our car parked there for a couple of hours after check out so that we could enjoy the beautiful beach across the road for a little longer. We look forward to returning the next time we find ourselves in Oahu!

Awesome view of mountain and step away from beach!

  • 5 of 5

Rosina's beach cottage was just step away from beach, and backyard view of mountain was beautiful!

There's no AC, but nice breezy comes from ocean so we didn't feel like AC was necessity. We've only met with Rosina's husband, he was very nice!! My family enjoyed staying at this beach cottage, thank you so much!!

The Perfect Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful beach cottage with our family. This was the absolute perfect place to stay as we moved our son into UH Manoa. On our arrival, Wilson was there to greet us and show us around and to top it off had a fruit basket waiting for us with the most wonderful pineapple, oranges and bananas. Rose and Wilson just made us feel so much a part of their family and made us feel so comfortable right off and made sure we had everything we needed. On our departure Wilson was there to send us off...We will most definitely we stay with them again. Thank you!

Owner's Response: We are thankful for the many conversations and stories we shared with this family. They definitely loved the beach and spent hours on their “amazing” beach. We loved sharing their company every time the opportunity allowed us both the spare time. We look forward to a return visit from this family. Thank you for the good memories.

We stayed at this house for 4 nights. Mom, dad and 2 tall teen age boys. Rosina was kind enough to bring a little mattress for one teen to sleep on while the other slept on futon. This was a perfect size house for the four of us. We ate breakfast in the gazebo. We had stunning views of the mountains behind the house and had a sliver of a view of the beach in front. The beach is VERY easy to get to. We allowed our teens to go back and forth from house to beach with no worries. The house had googled, boogie boards, beach chairs to use as well. Pro tip: order groceries from Safeway to be delivered to house - save time and money!
