About the property

Studio Bedroom,1 Bathroom Sleeps 4

This beach cottage is one of a kind. It is so calming to just sit there and watch the ocean which is only steps away. Turtles frequently swim nearby for your enjoyment.

All amenities are there in the cottage and on the property. The only thing you will need are groceries which can be bought on the way or 2 miles past the cottage at Tamuras Market. This is a vacation spot of a lifetime to remember.

About Lisa or Terrie

Being Raised on Oahu and now living in Oklahoma, this cottage will bring me home. It is like stepping back in time to be there watching the turtles and whales through the window in my living room. I come to relax and float in the clear, glass like, ocean which is just steps away. One must see to believe and experience to know.

Lisa or Terrie purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Lisa or Terrie chose Hauula

Perfect to get away from the hussle an bustle of Waikiki. Once you visit Waikiki it is perfect to drive back to Old Hawaii.

What makes this cottage unique

You get a well stocked, better view, equipped beach cottage equal to any hotel but as a lesser cost.

THE best place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The photos don't do justice for the cottage. I went with my 6 yr old daughter and it was perfect for us. It is equipped with anything you might need and the ocean is just feet away. We would sleep with the windows open listening to the waves crash, it was magical! We went around the island and this side was definitely the most beautiful part and not too packed with tourists. Staying here was a great way to get the real feel of Hawaii. I cannot wait to be back. Mahalo!

Perfect cottage! Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We stay at this cottage for 3 nights and enjoyed every minute. The cottage itself was cozy and the perfect size for our family of four.

We love going out to the beach which was just steps away. The water was calm and clear.

We also visited Kahuku Farms, Waimea Valley, and Koahua Ranch. They were all a short drive away.

This really is a piece of paradise!

Nice house directly on the beach

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the house for a week. If it rains at the house take your car and drive for 15 minutes and the sun is shining. You can reach all of Ohao in 1 to 1,5 hour drive. For groceries the Foodland is only a 10 minutes drive away to the north.

Owner's Response: We are so glad your stay was comfortable and convienent. You are so right. It can rain on one side of the island and be dry and sunny in just a few miles. We look forward to seeing you and your family again. Aloha

Great cottage feel right on a little beach.

  • 4 of 5

Cottage was exactly as described on website by owners . It was clean and fully equipped with everything we needed for cooking and lots of beach items . The breeze coming through every night was fantastic . We are used to AC being from Florida but were very comfortable there. The sounds of the ocean all day and night were fantastic and relaxing . I need to be honest so ...The only reason we didn’t give it 5 stars was because the bed was terrible , sunk in middle because the bottom frame underneath is broke . The mattress has seen its last days with springs coming through . The ceiling fan is missing a string so we were not able to adjust it to a higher speed over the bed . If your coming to get lots of sun you may need to go north or west where the sun is out more , but this cottage is a convenient central location for that . Teds bakery about 20 minutes north is the best ! . Favorite beach was Waimea beach park on the north shore with a really cool little town and shops with lots of food . We loved the polynesian cultural center and Kualoa ranch movie tour was fun . We had a great first visit to Hawaii . The sounds of the ocean and the sunrises and moon rises were worth the stay and if they got a new bed ,would definitely stay here again 🤗

Quaint, quiet, relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The condo was quaint, clean, and had an amazing view/proximity to the ocean. It was a perfect place for the middle of spring, with lots of windows to open and let the air flow through. I imagine it would get pretty hot in the summer months without air conditioning though. The place was well-maintained and provided adequate dishes, bedding, towels, and even a nearby laundry area that could be accessed with a key on the ground floor. That was very convenient and saved us space in not having to bring as much clothes. If you're looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of the touristy areas, this place is a great option. It's not too far from beaches of the north shore and you can still go down south easily with a car as well.

Owner's Response: So glad you were able to experience the magic of Punalu'u. The close proximity to the beach is great and the sea breezes do keep us cooled year round. We are so happy to be able to offer a piece of "old Hawaii" and so glad you and your family were able to enjoy. Mahalo
