About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5-6) Duplex

Come and relax at our Beautiful Surf Cottage! Just a walk away from a fun surf spot for all ages and levels of experience.

Located across the street from Sunset Beach Colony Homes, this cottage is a perfect place to spend a relaxing vacation in the paradise of Hawaii. Only a walk across the street and down the newly paved park entrance you will find a palm tree-lined beach where the surf is perfect for all levels of surfing, body boarding, body surfing, and even just swimming. On a clear day you can see forever through your snorkel mask over the beautiful Hawaiian reef.

This cottage sits at the end of the famous North Shore bike path where we have beach cruisers for you to enjoy the beautiful ride past the famous beaches of the North Shore. Sunset, Rocky Point, Pipeline, and the famous Waimea Bay are all yours to explore!

If you choose to take a short drive you will easily find places like the Turtle Bay Resort and Spa where you can golf, have a spa day or go horseback riding. The Polynesian Cultural Center is just a short drive to the east side where you can witness traditional Hawaiian Hula dances. Waimea Falls Park is also just a few minutes drive to the west where you can hike down a tropical path to the beautiful waterfall.

This cottage has everything you need to relax and have fun in Hawaii. In addition to the above mentioned amenities we've also provided beach towels, board games, and a selection of DVDs. We also have wireless internet for you to collect email or check the local swell and weather maps. You will not want to go home!!!

NOW WITH AC for a comfortable stay!!

There are two units on the property available to rent. Both are two bedroom/One bath and sleep 5-6 people. This house is a duplex and both sides are available to rent

It's been awhile since we stayed but wanted to write a review! We lo9ved this little place and wanted to re-book it for 2017 but it's booked up :(

It worked perfect for the four of us. One couple and two friends so the separate beds in the second room worked well. (great for kids too). We road the bikes to town and could walk to the beach. It was great!

Had one issue with toilet but owners fixed same day while we were out. Want to come back!

Great experience!

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our time and stay at the cottage. We stayed in unit B and it was just perfect. Loved the location and have absolutely no complaints. The newly installed AC was unexpected and a great addition! I wasn't able to find the hairdryer but realized we didn't really need it. Book this place now and you wouldn't regret it!

Exactly what we were looking for on the North Shore

  • 5 of 5

Kai/Heather were so responsive. First and foremost in any stay, that is my number one. Its their home/property and I feel like if I had any questions that they would be on top of them quickly. Top notch.

Our little family LOVED the feeling of the North Shore. The slow life. The 'hawaiian way'. The house was simple and we loved it. If you are looking for amenities this is not your place. But for us, this cottage was exactly what we were looking for.

I'd give it 5 out of 5 stars. And would TOTALLY stay and recommend it to anyone.

Avoiding the crowds

  • 5 of 5

The Surf Cottage is a great place to stay. The North Shore is low key and not overpopulated in the summer. Great place for kids with the beach 5 minutes away. Heather and Kai brought us extra sheets and gave us tips on where to go exploring. Great shrimp tacos from the food trucks. If you're looking to avoid the high rise hotels and to experience Hawaii more like the Hawaiians do, we recommend the North Shore and especially theSurf Cottage.

Great North Shore location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place! Kai and Heather were wonderful and really took care of everything! It is located at the end of North Shore, so far less crowded than other areas. The beach across the street is beautiful and was almost always deserted. It was perfect for snorkeling!

The house was very clean and worked well for the 2 of us and our 2 teenage children. Plenty of room! Kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed to cook. There was an issue with the fridge not working, but it was taken care of right away with a new fridge! There is no AC, which is pretty common on the island, but with the windows and doors open and the fans blowing, it really wasn't a problem. The Kam Hwy can be a bit busy (and noisy), making getting into the parking area a little tricky at times, but really not an issue at all. In walking distance to Ted's Bakery, so that was nice!

The boogie boards and bicycles were a great bonus!

The area is really laid back. Great experience all the way around. We will definitely stay here again if we ever make it back to the island and will surely recommend to others!

Classic North Shore property

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place. It is located at the end of the main North Shore beach area, so it is far less crowded than the Haleiwa, Waimea and Ehukai areas (especially on weekends) but still convenient to everything. Also, the beach across the highway is lovely and was just about deserted every time we went there (and is apparently a great surf spot when the waves are up).

The property itself is a classic Hawaii house, not fancy and probably not for people wanting an antiseptic tourist experience, but my wife, two teenage children and I loved it. Plenty of space with Comfortable beds, a nicely updated bathroom, outdoor showers, a nice front lanai, a decently outfitted kitchen, and a washer and dryer which were crucial after 10 days of traveling.

Visitors need to be aware that there is no AC, but we were just fine with keeping the windows open and the ceiling and box fans running. And yes, the neighborhood chickens rose earlier than we might have wanted to, but it's the country, so you have to get used to it. The entrance is right off the Kam Highway, so there's some traffic noise and the parking space can be a bit tricky to get in and out of with heavy traffic, but that's truly a minor hassle. The only drawback that I could really find was the refrigerator/freezer in the B unit seems to be nearing the end of its life and didn't keep things very cold (i.e. beer!).

To summarize, if you want the real North Shore experience instead of the Hawaii vacation that the big hotel chains make you think you want, this is the place for you. Honestly, our biggest complaint is that we wish we could have spent longer here and less time among the tourist throng in Waikiki. Aloha!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay and had a great vacation. Thank you for the great review. Sorry about the fridge not keeping the beer cold wish we would have known this during your stay. Fortunatley the next guests alerted us to the problem and we got a new fridge! So your next trip out will be accompanied by nice cold beer to enjoy on the lanai! We are working right now on installing AC as well! :-)
