What makes this Cottage unique
How can you vacation in Hawaii and not have an ocean view!! Authentic Hawaii vacation retreat in Hahaione Valley! Get away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki, rejuvenate, and revitalize yourself at this unique property. These vacation cottages are nestled in the lush mountain-forest on the east side of Oahu (Hawaii Kai). The main cottage was just built in 2011 and new cottage suite completed December 2018. Experience the best of both worlds with spectacular views of the ocean, while perched on the side of a mountain-valley. The cottages are at the highest point on the backside of the property located above the main estate home with a private entrance. The retreat boasts a small kitchenette, bar, large covered lanai for lounging while enjoying the ocean/mountain peak views. New Suite is separate with private deck, and fire pit! If that’s not enough use the extended lanais for sunbathing or have a maitai in your own private Jacuzzi after a hard days work at the beach. The location is nearby famous attractions and beaches such Hanauma Bay, Sandy Beach, Maunalua Bay, and Sealife Park. Three shopping centers, Costco, pharmacy, and many restaurants are with in a few miles. Parking is free. In this desired area many of the vacation rentals are substantiality higher in cost. This retreat-cottage is a great value and offered at an affordable price point, based on the overall options and amenities. The pictures don’t do justice in how the property s

amazing view, peaceful setting
My husband and I stayed at this property during a brief househunting visit, and loved the amazing view from the deck and the peaceful location. The cottage was clean and comfortable. Parking is either up a steep and windy driveway that required backing down, or parking on the street below, and the cottage is up a somewhat steep stepstone path and a couple flights of stairs. The location is convenient to shopping (including Costco!). Mosquitoes were a problem but insect repellant was provided. Overall, we enjoyed our stay very much and recommend it for people who want to stay in Hawaii Kai.
We are very happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. Wr hope to have you back in the near future aloha!!!
Beautiful property with amazing views...close to everything...we would definitely stay here again...the property was clean and had everything you need...outside shower was just the best bonus...this was not our first time to Hawaii so we could pretty much navigate without assistance but the owners let us know if we needed any ideas for entertainment they were available...owner always quick to respond to messages...loved going to local small restaurants...the drive up the coast was absolutely amazing on the way to Kualoa Ranch (dont miss going there it is cool especially if you love movies!!!) I can not praise this place enough...location...views...everything spectacular. Thanks so much.
Aloha Kathryn, we are so happy you enjoyed your stay and then islands. Thank you for the wonderful review of our cottage. We hope to have you back in the near future!!!
As stated in the listing, the photos do NOT do it justice! Absolutely beautiful location and house. Property owner was very helpful and responsive. Honestly couldn’t have gone any better!
Thank you Daniel for the nice review. It was nice meeting you and your wife hope to have you back in the near future. Aloha
We had an absolute blast staying here at this cottage! It is nestled on a hill right behind the owners house but has an entry all its own so it did not feel like we were in his back yard. It was a well manicured NICE property with a BEAUTIFUL view, loved the hot tub and the grill was a nice plus. We only got to meet Mike once on our week stay; However, he was so nice and so very helpful as we communicated Via email due to his busy schedule (he and his family are busy with everyday work and life and not vacationing like us lol) but he answered all of our needs promptly and without hesitation! I HIGHLY recommend this cozy cottage to everyone!! THANK YOU MIKE, for printing out the luau tickets for us and for helping make our first trip to Oahu a memorable and fun one!!!
Mahalo for the kind words! We're very happy to hear you enjoyed your vacation and the cottage! Please visit us again!!! MM
Just what you need, but didn't think to look for.
This was an excellent place to stay. Located up on a neighborhood hillside a 1/2 hour from downtown, it's close enough to the city and remote enough allowing more privacy. It also gives you a head start up the coast. There's a great view of the ocean from your deck that has a table, hammock, lawn chairs, couch and flat screen TV plus a Jacuzzi. Adjacent you'll find a grill, fire pit and outdoor shower. There's even a washer and dryer. We can't thank Mike and Kendra enough! They're both so very kind, and they were extremely helpful with questions, suggestions and logistics. They recommended great places to eat and drink, where to find the best beaches, and arranged car rental and an absolutely unforgettable catamaran sunset cruise. They even provided a special nut cracker for the macadamia nuts growing just off the deck. This is an ideal location for anyone who desires easy access to all of the island with a touch of home. We definitely plan to return.

Hi Karen we are so happy that you guys enjoyed yourself during your stay in Hawaii. It was really nice meeting with you and your husband and spending some quality time with both of you. Hope to have you back in the near future as our guest. Aloha mm
BEAUTIFUL COTTAGE STAY
We trully enjoyed the property and the view. The outdoor living area was fabulous. Our son wanted to take the outdoor shower home with us. The loft worked out OK but the stairs were a lot steeper than was explained. I would caution anyone with small children to use it. I would also caution anyonw elderly or large to use it also. This site would be perfect for a couple looking for a romantic getaway. The view is to die for. Just remember there are 40 steps from the top of the driveway to the door and more if you have to park on the street.
Mahalo for the nice comments! Hope you visit us again in the near future!
East Side of Oahu nice residential area with many options for travelers.
