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!

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.

Koa and Rose provided the perfect real Hawaiian getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Koa and Rose were the perfect hosts. We started our trip with homemade mango cake delivered by Rose. Koa was incredibly helpful with local info.the cottage was beautifully decorated and they made us feel like guests in their home not renters. The outside seating area was amazing , set out every night and enjoyed morning coffees every morning.I would love to stay here again

Owner's Response: This was a “going away” trip for a son headed to college. The family was so close between parents and sons (2) and we were impressed at their family relationship with each other. Our “talking” sessions was informal, friendly and at times we felt like a part of their family. We would definitely love to have them back for school visits with the older son. What a wonderful family.

Tucked behind the main house, its own cottage with front porch & lanai was amazing true to pictures!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter & I had a wonderful stay! Koa waited for us outside the gate to help us find their home since it was late & dark! So warm & welcoming. Loved the cottage front porch, nice front room & separate kitchen & bedroom. Everything was clean & appreciated all the beach details. Home decorated so awesome.

They had fresh fruit, Hawaiian coffee & condiments in fridge if needed.

Fresh linens, towels, beach towels, chairs & beach toys as well.

The beach right across the street is just too beautiful to describe. One of the nicest beaches we have ever been to. We live in Southern California & go to Maui every year. Was simply amazed how beautiful & almost our own private beach. Hardly anyone near us, felt like a slice of heaven.

Koa & Rosa are so nice & we loved our conversations with Koa!

Wonderful dinners at Ono's, Buzz's & Roys!!

Pill Box hike, lighthouse hike at sunrise just to name a few great things to do.

We would love to come back.. loved every minute & greatly appreciate Koa & Rosa making our vacation so wonderful!!

Owner's Response: Our guests were a Mother and Daughter on a graduation gift travel visit. We got into great conversations for recommendations of places to visit, to eat and to share the outdoors. During their stay they were very active to touring ideas and also spent many hours on the beach. They also had friends who also gave them ideas of where to visit, eat and play. They were here for the food, weather and fun and they made the most of it. We loved sharing thoughts and intimate stories about Hawaiian history as they wanted to know all about Waimanalo and the Windward side. Most appreciative was their relationship with each other as best friends and family. We hope to have the chance to see them again on another visit to the islands. Very wonderful people to spend time with. We will miss them.

Owner's Response: The couple were very nice. They both had families on the island so they spent a lot of time away from the property. We appreciated having them stay with us. We engaged in good conversations. Thank you,
