KOI POND COTTAGE

$225 Special!

Charming Hawaiian style beachside one bedroom cottage with loft. Located on the North Shore coast line known as the surfing capital of the world - just 45 minutes to Honolulu and a short drive from historic Haleiwa Town, Waimea Bay, Pipeline and Sunset Beach.

The home itself is a classic example of island charm and there is a very special aura as you walk into this vintage Hawaiian style cottage. To enter you cross over a bridge, which extends over a koi fish pond, and step on to your ocean view deck which is ideal for dining and relaxing. Most guests spend many hours in the day enjoying the serenity of this indoor/outdoor area. The interior is decorated with Hawaiian Koa furniture and original art work by the artist Mar.

For those looking for surf or for a swim-- a number of prime surfing spots are located just in front or to the side of the property - Lani's, Holton's, Jocko's and Chun's Reef. For those looking for a swim or a beautiful beach walk, there are two pristine white sand swimming beaches near the home - Laniakea and Chun's Reef. Laniakea is shown in the pictures attached. As an added bonus, the private beach in front of the home is a favorite spot for large sea turtles who like to bask on the rocks. The sunsets are always breath taking and sometimes you will see turtles swimming in the surf, or dolphins and whales out in distance.

There are two homes on this lot, the other house has long-term tenants that love to share the yard and beachfront with visitors from all over the world.

Rates: $225 - $395 up to 2 guests, $50 each additional guest.

Please note pets are on property, dogs and cats.

This home is not recommended for children. The lanai is elevated and access to the pond is not secured for children.

Reviewer Comments:

We were looking very forward to staying at koi pond cottage. I have a lot of positives to say. It is clean, the home and grounds are just beautiful, you have your own spectacular beach! As stated in other reviews, there are ants and geckos, but that is the Hawaii. It seriously didn’t bother us one bit. There’s a friendly cat on the property named nacho that eats mice and birds around the yard and will totally sit on your lap all day if you let him! He was really sweet. If I didn’t have the odd experience I had with the booking agent/owners after our arrival I would give this place 5 stars..... I booked the place months in advance about how much it would be for my self, my husband, and our teenage daughter and paid that price. All three of our names were on the rental agreement and paid the price i was given. A day or so after our arrival, the booking agency contacted us and I was told I didn’t pay for our daughter and that I owed extra money. When I talked to the property owners, I was told the booking agency told them I only paid for one person which meant I would ow more! ...it seemed strange. I provided proof to both the booking agency and the owners of of the property of how many people I booked for. I could understand if I was being sneaky, but I wasn’t and felt very accused. Now, after a day or two of emailing back and forth, the rental company told us to rest assured that we would not have to pay more money, but the owners who shared the property were never kind to us again and avoided us at all costs. Even with my proof of booking it didn’t seem to make a difference. I really felt I had to contest my position strongly and it pretty much ruined my trip. Mind you, my daughter and husband had a wonderful time and that was important to me. So, in conclusion, the property is perfect, and everything is provided. Just make sure you keep all your booking emails. We were also were invited to church upon our arrival. Just

Owner's Response: We state as clearly as possible online that the rate applies to two guests, and any additional guests will be $50 per night. All quotes for 3 people include the extra person fee. The client booked online, but only registered 2 guests. Had she registered 3 guests the rate would have automatically gone higher. The owners contacted our office to inform us there were 3 guests, but ultimately allowed us to waive the fee. All correspondence with the guest involving this matter was extremely positive and professional, and this is the only complaint we have had in 15 years regarding the behavior of the owners. Guests come back year after year to this property, and the Aloha of the owners is one of the biggest reasons why. We are very sorry the guest felt accused, but are happy to have another opportunity to stress the rate structure to prospective clients. If you book online for two but add a third to the guest list at a later date, you will be charged for the extra guests upon arrival.

Reviewer Comments:

What a pleasure it was to stay in the Koi Pond Cottage. Guy and Mar were amazing hosts and now good friends! About a week ago I arrived here on the North Shore to work with the staff at Waialua High School. I stayed in a local hotel for a few days and then took some time to myself staying in this amazing home. I never know what to expect when I visit places like this but from day one I felt part of the North Shore. Here, they take great pride in O’hana, family, and that feeling permeated this place. Once a rural Sugar Cane focused area its now changing as Hawaii has pretty much abandoned this industry. So, a slow and maybe a bit frightening change is coming over this amazing North Shore destination as jobs change, property values soar and new people become anxious to live this Aloha Life style. I could go on forever about this but just wanted to say thanks to these people and this place for slowing me down and helping me refocus, once again, on what life’s about, those two words, O’hana and Aloha, say it all. I had some time to put the brakes on things, to hike in beautiful places, to swim with sharks in crystal blue water, paddle to an offshore Island, to sit on the beach and just listen to God talk in ways that you just can’t at home. So, Mahalo to this place, to the people who grew up here, to be able to listen as they “talk story” and share why this place needs to stay as it is, a place that reminds you of what this life should be about. This home and its beautiful view was just plain awe inspiring. Why would anyone want to leave this place? Ferris Bueller said it best “Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”

Reviewer Comments:

The Koi Pond Cottage was a very nice rustic and quant place to stay for our first trip to Haleiwa. For our family of 4, the cottage offers a bedroom with a loft and living room bed. With traveling to various parts of the island all day, the accommodations were quite suitable. Although not on the beach front itself, it is a short 60 foot walk away which was no issue. The biggest draw to the cottage are the turtles – there were up to 6 giant green turtles in the pools of ocean water around the lava rocks each morning. Although you want to give them their space, you can literally walk right up to the turtles. The owners themselves live in the frontal property and are a very nice couple with plenty of great tips for their residents. BTW, their cat Nacho is very friendly and will mug you with affection. As for the location, it was ideally located on the North Shore and was in walking distance to Laniakea Beach and Chun’s Reef as well as short drives to Waimea Bay Beach Park and further north to Turtle Bay. Although the cottage had no a/c, it was not an issue at all for us in late June – there was plenty of ventilation. Our family really enjoyed our stay at the Koi Pond Cottage.

We stayed at Koi Pond for 2 weeks and were so happy with our choice! The property was peaceful and so beautiful. We spent many hours sitting on the Lanai enjoying the yard and watching the birds and the ocean. Guy and Mar are fabulous hosts and welcomed us as family from the day we arrived. The location was just what we needed. Not too far from Honolulu and a short drive from shopping and the grocery store. Nacho the cat was a pleasure to have hanging around and often followed us down to the beach to see the sea turtles and the breathtaking sunsets. We truly felt that it was our home while there and so hope to be able to return to Koi Pond in the future!
