About The Owner

My family and I have lived on the property for over 30 years. My dad is a retired firefighter, my husband works at the local newspaper and I work at a non-profit community center. Our family also includes our two teenagers, 2 dogs, and tortoise. When we are not working, you can find us at Sandy Beach where we enjoy bodysurfing, picking shells, and playing with our pets. We also enjoy hula, hiking and spending time with our friends and family.

Why The Owner chose East Oahu

My grand parents built the ohana cottage when I was born to accommodate their growing family. Now that everyone has grown up and moved out we share the house with visiting family and friends like you who want to experience Hawaii like a local instead of a tourist. Since Honolulu is one of the most expensive places to visit we wanted to offer budget and family friendly accommodation for malahini and kama'aina alike.

What makes this cottage unique

We live below the majestic Koolau mountain range. When it rains heavy here the water falls spill out and line the the entire mountain range from Kahalu'u to Likelike. The windward side is also blessed with beautiful greenery, sandy beaches, scenic drives and a much slower island pace.

Guestbook comments from the owner

TKS again for your house. Our family had a great vacation in Oahu!

The kids say HI to Roxy and Tie and Teddy of course ;-)))

Enjoyed our stay!

  • 4 of 5

At first it was difficult to find as the cottage is behind the main house on a hill. However, the cottage was perfect for our stay! There was 6 in our party and it was very comfortable for us. All is provided by the owner; from coffee filters to boogie boards! There's a washer & dryer in back which was great. The whole place was clean and neat with everything you'll need for a great stay in O'ahu. Thanks so much for having such a great place for us to stay!

We had a lovely stay !!!!!

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice stay at the property, on our arrival we were met by the lovely dogs which my kids loved it.

The house was very clean and organized, because of the location of the house, there was always a nice breeze coming through the windows.

The kitchen was well supplied with everything we needed, even some basic condiments.

We had beach towels available also beach toys, masks, boogie boards, which was very convenient and the girls enjoyed it very much.

As was advertised the entrance of the house is very steep so people who have any difficulty walking will be a problem.

Overall it was a very nice experience, we would definitely stay again and recommend to our friends.

A home on the island

  • 5 of 5

Staying in the cottage was a wonderful experience. Normally a hotel room would merely be a "command post" or just a central location. The cottage was HOME, and we referred to it as home. We had everything we could possibly need for cooking, visiting the beach or just understanding the islands.

The two dogs were definitely ambassadors of aloha, the greeted us with wagging tails every evening and sat waiting for us to leav every morning.

We could not think of one negative aspect of our visit. Thank you for making our trip a wonderful experience. The central location of the cottage made it easy to get to any part of the island quickly.

Great Accommodation for family of 6 after 3 weeks in the Mainland

  • 5 of 5

After a family trip from Disneyland, San Francisco and on our way home to Sydney, we stopped over Hawaii for a 6 night breather before heading back. We had arrived at Ahuimanu Cottage at 11:30pm, our kids were all asleep and exhausted. We were nervous about the walk up and flight of stairs that were written in other reviews and had my husband go up first to see if it was manageable for our kids (8, 10, 3 & 1yr olds). To our joy, it was NOT bad at all and a little exaggerated. There were lights to guide us up from the side with sensor lights to take us up. We were greeted by the husband who was so friendly and helpful. He offered straight away to take our bags up and took us up to our little cottage. Once we walked in we felt right at home and exactly what we needed after our big trip. The two bedroom cottage was so clean, simple, well stocked with all you need, the wi-fi was a brilliant touch to the cottage, it had a blow up mattress for our boys, the kitchen had all we needed and was so quiet with the best breeze coming through the louvres. There was a washing machine and dryer at the back which was perfect for our huge load of washings we arrived with.

There are two very friendly dogs who we asked Valzey to keep away from the kids when we arrived so the kids don't get startled and in the morning our kids absolutely adored the most well mannered and friendliest dogs, Roxy & Tai. And of course our kids also loved Teddy the tortoise.

The only thing that we found that may help with future guests with small kids is that the electrical sockets were too open for our crawling toddler. We had to have chairs and the lounge pushed to block it from them wanting to play with it. Maybe have it covered up from the kids or the TV unit pushed to have it out of sight

Apart from that, we were out all day at the beach and we used the boogie boards, beach chairs and towels provided which made it so easy for our trip. We used the esky and bags to fill up the kids snacks for our day trips and always great coming to the little cottage late at night jumping onto a comfy bed and quiet environment.

We would recommend this place for any families wanting to save while enjoying the real Hawaii.

Thank you so much Valzey and Loa for reminding us to get back to basics and enjoy the simple living of life. We fully enjoyed our stay! Mahalo
