Why Vickie Groten chose East Oahu

My family and I cherish Waimanalo and the ability to get away from the city and enjoy the peacefulness of the countryside, unwind on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world and still be minutes away from great restaurants, shopping, the cinema and all major Hawaii attractions. We feel blessed to be able to share the ALOHA and open our home to guests from all over the world!

What makes this cottage unique

See our REVIEWS! This home is a rare gem because of the location, amazing amenities, quiet & comfort, history, VIEWS & pleasant home-away-from-home comforts :) COME VISIT TODAY!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our return visit here was beyond worth it! Your cottages, pier, beach, canoe/catamaran... Were a blessing. We hope to come back with our kiddos. :)

We love learning about Hawaii & look forward to coming back here. It is one of my favorite things to snorkel here. Sitting on the pier, drinking coffee, meeting neighbors, watching 4 or 5 turtles at a time & fish are definite joys of staying here. Thank you again so much for sharing your beachfront property with us.

Cozy Hawaiian Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved the view from the porch (ocean, pier, Rabbit Island, sunrises), spending much morning and evening time there. Many friendly geckos entertained us. Proximity to Kailua (Buzz's restaurant) and to Honolulu made getting where we wanted to go quick. We spent time on nearby, beautiful, expansive Waimanalo Beach, enjoying the dozens of Japanese wedding photo sessions going on there at various times, and the interesting military aircraft maneuvers over the beach and bay. A visit to nearby Doris Duke's Shangri La estate, via the Honolulu Museum of Art tour, was memorable and highly recommended. We loved your place and getting to know your part of Oahu better.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here last week, while visiting our son who lives nearby! It was charming! It's in a great location with wonderful water views and access to the water. Mike, the owner took us for a sail- which was a highlight of our visit! Vicki was so easy to work with! Highly recommend!

Right up our "alley!"

  • 5 of 5

This is a converted barn. We live in an old farmhouse, so we felt right at home. The property is well-maintained, but I could have had even more fun with some clippers (I love to garden). The cottage has good privacy. You can lay on the bed in the loft and read, glance at the sea, then read some more. The stairs were a bit "sketchy" for this woman "of a certain age," but they are going to be remedied in early June. The porch is great. The little pier into the ocean is wonderful to walk on, feel the breeze in your hair, and look for turtles and fish. The owner, Mike, was so gracious and took us sailing TWICE!! Wonderful, just wonderful. Vickie is a great manager and is "there" when you need her. We had good neighbors, wonderful bbq's, good swimming in the honu pool down the beach, but most of all, were able to relax and just enjoy Mother Nature at her finest.

AMAZING LOCATION

  • 5 of 5

The location of this house was amazing! If you are able, get up every morning and watch the sunrise over Rabbit Island while sitting on the bench by the pier. The house had everything we needed, dishes, towels, even beach chairs & snorkel gear.

Everything in the house was in great condition and we truly enjoyed our stay!

Note: The stairs to the bedroom loft are very narrow and a little sketchy, not for the faint of heart.

Also - the cleaning lady was there are 9:40 sharp, and stood outside the house waiting for us to finish packing up the car, so be ready to check out PROMPTLY at 10AM!

Hidden paradise treasure

  • 5 of 5

Well for starters when we arrived to this beautiful cottage we made mixed drinks to unwind and took in the view on a private beach with its own pier. When the kayak rental guys dropped off our kayaks they told us they knew the island like the back of thier hands but never seen this hidden treasure before! After they left, it was time to enjoy ocean kayaking after that we then decided to try snorkeling and actually swam alongside three sea turtles and even a sea snake with caution of course as we video taped it all with our gopros and water cameras then fished off the pier and caught hawaiin pink snapper,trigger fish,goat fish and even a moray eel that we released. Another great benefit of this location is that it's near to all the amenities like the Chiefs Luau, swimming with the dolphins, diamond head point longest drive is to the north shore for the shark cage which is a must! Overall this place is worth every penny....special thanks to Mike the owner for offering us a free ride on his sail boat and Vikki for going out of her way to making sure all needs were met which went way above and beyond. This experience was much needed...we went by our hawaiin names Keoni(Joe) and Kona(Donna) which we learned at kailua ranch zipline gift shop while looking at engraved key chains.lol! Thank you so much guys...sincerely Joe and Donna

Our homes offer the best of both worlds: old Hawaiian style cottage living with all the modern amenities needed (plus more!). We provide authentic island style accommodations right on the beach, away from the hustle & bustle of Waikiki. We are in the small country town of Waimanalo, but are still just 15 minutes to Kailua Beach & Lanikai Beach, 25 minutes to Honolulu Town & Diamond Head, 45 minutes to Pearl Harbor & a 1 hour drive to the infamous North Shore. Waimanalo is home to one of the World’s most beautiful beaches as well as a few locally owned & operated restaurants & shops.

When you look out your window or step out onto your lanai (porch); you’ll see a heavenly view of Rabbit Island & the infamous Waimanalo ocean blues plus the majestic Ko’olau Mountain Range! Stroll down to your front yard & hunt for sea glass & seashells because you are ON the beach…

Enjoy your morning coffee (we recommend Hawai’i-grown Kona) & sunrise on our private pier, on one of our hand-made benches or even on your lanai (porch). Be sure to be on the lookout for our Hawaiian sea turtle ohana! The endangered “Honu” aka Hawaiian Sea Turtles love playing in the crashing waves of the Pacific…

During winter months (December to March) keep your eyes open for Humpback Whales!

Waimanalo Beach offers some of the SAFEST swimming & MOST SUPERB snorkeling in the Hawaiian Islands! The natural reef & plentiful native corals & fish provide protection to our coastlines & a plethora of color under the sea, sure to captivate you & your family… Some favorite guests seen from our pier include: the State Fish; Humuhumunukunukuapua’a & State Mammal; the endangered Hawaiian Monk Seal. We provide snorkels, fins & masks plus fishing gear upon request.

Waimanalo Bay Beach & Makapu’u Beach, both world-renowned for body surfing & are two of Oahu’s top boogie boarding beaches for beginners, are less than 2 miles from our Beachfront Villas PLUS we provide boogie boards for your use so you’re all good to go!

We LOVE our FREE CONCIERGE services from SeekSpot! Ask us or our SeekSpot Ohana about: Hiking, Beach-Combing, Meditation, Outdoor or Indoor Yoga, Scuba Diving,

Mountain Climbing, Horse-Back Riding, Sailing, Whale Watching, Bird Watching, Scenic Drives, Surfing, Paddling, Stand-Up Paddle Boarding, Golf or Minature Golf, Waterfalls, Sauna & Spa, Botanical Gardens, Restaurants, Shopping, Site-Seeing, Luaus, Historical Museums & MORE!

You’re in the perfect location to explore these activities & so much more without compromising authentic Hawaiian paradise & serenity!

Whether this is your 1st or 50th stay here in Hawai’i, we guarantee you’ll be impressed & won’t want to wait to book your next stay! Our guests all state… THE PICTURES DON’T DO OUR HOMES JUSTICE! :)
