About Billie Lefton

We moved here from the Midwest . We feel very fortunate to be here. We have been blessed with 5 children. All on the mainland. We have a small dog (who has been our baby for the last 12 years). We both work in Honolulu. I am a waitress ( I love it) and my husband is a estimator for a small company.

Billie Lefton purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Billie Lefton chose Hauula

Location!!! Coming from the Midwest and to be able to fall alsleep at night with the sound of the ocean is amazing! Also being across the street from the beach, or looking out our windows and seeing the water is like a dream come true. Or looking back towards the lush Mountains.

We have put our heart and soul into our cottage. I feel like it is someplace I would enjoy staying at. It took us awhile but the end result was amazing. We did the work ourself in our spare time.

We live iin a small town . Grocery store, restaurants a block away!! Very loving people!! Lots of Aloha here

What makes this cottage unique

We love it here because we can cross the street and be at the beach!! We have had monk seals, turtles, and whales . Nice to sit out on the lanai and see whales go by!!! Or walk up the road to 3 beautiful hikes. One has a beautiful waterfall. The other 2 are great for trail running!! Here you can enjoy everything Hawaii has to offer!

Great "home base"

  • 5 of 5

The Salty Kisses Cottage was the perfect place for our stay on O'ahu. We liked to be in a residential area in a small village away from the crowds and the busyness. Still the things we wanted to see and do were not too far a drive away. We felt very much at home in this nice and clean cottage. The only thing we missed was space to hang our wet beach stuff (we couldn't really use the clothes line as it rained quite often) and somewhere to store our surfboards. It was also nice to meet Billie, the owner. Communication with her was easy and so was checking in and out. We can definitely recommend Salty Kisses Cottage and would come again!

Awesome little cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Salty Kisses Beach Cottage! It was just what we were looking for and is a great place to stay if you are looking to relax but still be close to some great beaches and North Shore attractions. Billie is such a lovely host! We will be back for sure.

Perfect, relaxing cottage - fall asleep to the sound of the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I had an absolutely lovely stay at Salty Kisses cottage! Such a cozy place. Gorgeous views of the ocean across the street, and mountain views on the other side. We loved having our morning coffees in front of the water across the road, or even from our balcony! Views everywhere.

Also, softest bed sheets I’ve ever felt! The outdoor shower was great, and we loved the extra touches like the complimentary bottle of wine and welcome note.

Would definitely recommend if you want an authentic North Shore experience away from the crowds!

Romantic reunion

  • 5 of 5

Billie's Salty Kisses Cottage was the perfect place for staying on the north shore. Very close to the Polynesian Cultural Center, grocery shopping, fish market, beaches, restaurants, and more. Billie was a fantastic host. Very attentive and kind. The house had all the amenities one would need for a comfortable stay. The kitchen, grill, and outdoor shower were wonderful. The bed and linens were comfy. The table and chairs on the front porch were a perfect spot for lounging and meals. The property and house are well cared for, with beautiful plants, furnishings, and everything was nice and clean. I have already recommended her place to several friends, and hope I get to visit again in the near future.

Beautiful cottage, modern with excellent furnishings.everything you need for a perfect vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Billie was an outstanding host, makes you feel right at home instantly. I have stayed at airbnb and vrbo properties and Billie was the nicest, caring host we have ever come across. This property is quiet, close to beaches, nearby restaurants, grocery stores etc. You are in a neighborhood with locals, and feel part of a community vs a busy tourist area of hotels. Do not hesitate to book billie's place for your vacation, we would most definitely return here again. Thank you Billie and your husband for letting us stay at your wonderful property.

The cottage was super clean & nicely remodeled in a great location with ocean breezes.

  • 5 of 5

The owner was very accommodating from the start. She was available without being intrusive & was respectful of our time & space at the cottage. First impression was how fresh & clean the cottage was. The decor was light & tranquil. The cottage had been remodeled in recent years. The flooring, kitchen, bathroom & furniture were very nice. Though there is no air conditioning we didn't miss it. The ocean breeze and multiple good quality ceiling fans made the cottage completely comfortable & cool. We made use of the beach chairs, beach towels & snorkel gear. The kitchen pots & pans were very good quality. We also grilled in the propane grill & enjoyed sunrise on the wrap around deck. The outdoor shower, offering much privacy, was spa-like with tropical plants & fancy soaps, etc. The indoor bathroom has a shower & tub, too. We loved the location- easy drives to Shark's Cove, Turtle Bay, the Polynesian Cultural Center, Kaaawa Valley & several trail heads. We would not hesitate to stay here again!
