About Waimanalo Beach Cottages

Historical Waimanalo Beach Cottages is a beautiful country get away. Steps from beautiful Waimanalo Beach were you see the most amazing sunrise.

Our business is a Hawaii State Licensed vacation rental. We offer nine spacious cottages that comfortably accommodate up to 24 guests. We have full size kitchens that include the comforts of home for you family and friends. Our local grocery stores are near by make your stay relaxed and affordable.

Our journey began over 60 years when Andrea Peters, mother and grandmother purchased Waimanalo Beach Cottages, formerly known as Waimanalo Motel by a family who managed the Waimanalo sugar mill. At this time many military personal would vacation at the cottages with friends and family.

Once purchased Waimanalo Beach Cottages were occupied by local residents for long-term rentals. Within the last 15 years Waimanalo Beach Cottages has transformed from residential rentals to vacation rentals, allowing our many visitors to enjoy our part of history and experience old Hawaii at its best. Currently we have an old time resident that continues to lives on our property for the past 20 years.

So what makes us different?

Our family-run business has grown significantly over the years, but our commitment to giving you an extensive range of quality cottages at a good value hasn’t changed.

Our unmatched customer service brings our customers back time and time again, and with over 1000 holidays and weddings booked each year, we must be getting something right!

Waimanalo Beach Cottages offers you Aloha. Each cottage in has been personally inspected and approved by our owners prior to your check in. From breath-taking ocean views and landscapes, we offer something for everyone. Enjoy your Stay!

Why Andrea Peters, Owner chose East Oahu

An original piece of Hawaii local style. No high rises or man made sand. Beautiful aqua colored ocean. Local restaurants walking distance. Cute shops. Lots of beach activities and hiking trails. Great spot for boogie boarding and surf spots for experience surfers.

What makes this cottage unique

Sunrises and long beach walks. Wonderful sound of the ocean that is step from the cottages. Wonderful views of the ocean and mountain range. Great for gatherings for a fun filled Hawaii Vacation or stay-cation.

Great location for a beach wedding and reception all in one area

  • 5 of 5

I had my fantastic beach wedding on beautiful Waimanalo Beach! My day was perfect and magical. I am so happy to have found Waimanalo Beach Cottages & Weddings. It was a one stop shop they had every thing I needed for a perfect wedding day and reception. The wedding staff was great and very professional.

The cottages were perfect for me and my family and friends! We had many BBQ's and lots of beach time. We could see and hear the waves from our cottages and the best sunrises! Oh there are banana trees with fresh banana ready to eat. The owner was great and responded to all our questions.

We had a great time and we will return on our 1 year wedding anniversary.

Good, but could be better

  • 4 of 5

Great location, probably best beach on island. Very quiet and no one on the beach. Restaurants, attractions all close by. Cottages look real nice and on first glance very clean. However, for the cleaning fee charged, we did expect it to be cleaner (cutlery drawers dusty, ants) and the outside seating area could have been cleaner (chairs were dusty, concrete littered with debris). Having said that, very peaceful, great location, and steps from the best beach. We had a great time, but for the cost/night + cleaning fee we did expect a little more. (We also stayed at another location for a few $ more/night and there was a huge difference)

Owner's Response: Aloha Dee, We very much appreciate you taking the time to provide us with your review. I am sorry to read about the dust and patio debrie. The week you stayed at the cottages we encountered 2 storms creating severe high winds. Since the cottages are so close to the beach and surrounded by its lovely nature it doesn’t surprise me that there was dust and debrie on the patio furniture. When our tropical weather conditions are stormy and there are high winds its very challenging to keep the debris and dust away. However, we do our best. As for our friendly ants this also occurs with our tropical weather changes. Our kitchens are equipped with a few pots and pans and basic culinary. Many of our guest love to cook and BBQ at our cottages, therefore we appreciate when our guest call to request certain cooking items to make their stay comfortable. We are very happy we were able to accommodate your cooking needs. Mahalo for your comments we sincerely appreciate learning more about your stay. We hope to see you next year. Sincerely, Waimanalo Beach Cottages Management Team

My 3 friends stayed at the cottages for only 3 nights really wished we could have stayed longer but had to get back to work. We were greeted by Tommy & Carolyn they were so helpful and super friendly. The beach in front of the cottages was soooo beautiful! We could hear the ocean at night. The grounds were green and very well manicured. I love the banana trees and we got to eat fresh bananas every day!

We will be back soon!

The cottage are so peaceful with the sounds of the crashing waves. We saw the most amazing sunsets and took long morning walks on the beach without a sole in site.

Our perfect piece of Haven!

Best Place on Oahu to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I make a few trips a year to Oahu to visit family and Waimanalo Beach Cottages is an amazing place to stay. Close to stores and easy drive to any side of the island and only 40 minutes from the airport! Highly recommend this location for your stay on Oahu. Mahalo!

Charming, relaxing retreat in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Quiet, rustic, charming, relaxing. This hidden gem is on the rural east shores of Oahu.

Our group had 6 of the 9 cottages, each with its own unique style and theme. It turned out that this was a good "base" for our party, within steps of the miles-long coast of an open, white sandy beach and minutes from the nightlife of downtown and Waikiki.

The manager on property was a nice surprise as most vacation rentals are without staff; he was knowledgeable & helpful, always available to assist with a question or request. When we arrived, he was there to greet us & give us a short tour of the property and to our cottages. He also told us of the few good eateries within walking distance. Ono Steaks, 1 minute walk, the BEST Ahi plate I’ve ever had & the “Hawaiian Style Café”s “Gorgonzola” breakfast sandwich & fresh brewed Kona coffee was a great start to our mornings.

Our second day we met the owner Tommy, who like the manager, made it a point to ask how we were doing and if we needed anything. A “local” and surfer, he turned us on to Roy’s restaurant and set us up with a deep sea fishing charter which allowed us to keep a large portion of our catch.

The cottages also has a large patio area with tables and bbq for our nightly "luaus" & our fellow guests from Canada and Germany were always a welcome addition to our evening social hours.

The grounds are secure with a keypad, locked gate and fence, and the grounds well lit in the evenings. The property is in the middle of a neighborhood so this is not a location for wild, crazy parties (although they did assist in arranging a "party bus" for our group one night to take us to Waikiki)

The description and photos on VRBO and their website are accurate and fair. This is not a high-end luxury property, but we enjoyed the comfortable, relaxed atmosphere of our cottage & the grounds. The cottages themselves are clean and well maintained, being near the ocean, there was some rust around a couple of the appliances, but that’s to be expected.

Lastly, Waimanalo Beach. This is what we came to Hawaii for! We practically had the entire beach to ourselves! In fact, the only time we found any amount of people was on the weekends. Most mornings, we took a walk along the shores and were lucky if we passed one or two people.

Overall, we had a wonderful experience at the Waimanalo Beach Cottages & highly recommend them for any traveler looking for a relaxing vacation at a reasonable cost.
