Barbara purchased this house in 2005

Why Barbara chose East Oahu

Waimanalo is a neighbohood a life style of the local culture has remained one which is about music,food, talking story & comes from the heart. Waimanalo beach you'll find yourself one of just a few people on the 5 miles of sandy beach. The ocean is very gentle & safe very unique area on an island of 1 million people

Perfect family retreat

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in Barbara's cottage. The space was more than adequate for our family of three, and would easily accommodate a family of 4. With more than 4, you'd have someone on the futon but with 3 kids, you probably don't care! Barbara is the perfect host. She was easy to get a hold of before arrival and left us be during our stay. She had stocked the kitchen with all necessities to get through breakfast (knowing we wouldn't have had a chance!). And, there was even a french press and ground coffee, to our delight. Barbara has thought of everything to make guests comfortable. There were plenty of towels and sheets and, several times, I bought something only to find it already there (nail polish remover!). The closest beach is perfect, with plenty of shade for those wanting it, and great sand-castle sand. There are beach toys, boogie boards, and even children-sized life jackets for the little ones. We took morning walks on the beach and enjoyed the sunrise. At night, we found It was all perfect! We definitely would stay here again.

We would do it all again!

  • 5 of 5

Jay and Barbara are great hosts. We arrived to a very clean bungalow with everything we were looking for! The neighborhood was quiet and within walking distance to a pristine beach and local market. We would do it again with huge smiles!

Thank you!

Quiet, peaceful and a perfect vacation getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our stay on Weimanalo was extremely comfortable and relaxing..the cottage was just what we wanted and other than the little critters on Sunday/Mon before we left, it was perfect..we enjoyed our time on Oahu and especially the closeness to the beach! Would recommend it to anyone who wants privacy away from the normal tourist hustle/bustle, but still close to almost everything .I'm envious of anyone who has the luxury of living in Waimanalo !!!

We will be back

  • 5 of 5

Net, Net: we loved the house, we loved the location, we adored the beach, Jay and Barbara were great and we'll be back. Just make sure this is the location for you.

My son and daughter-in-law live on island, but their place is too small for visitors, so we were looking for a place for 4 that's within easy driving distance of Honolulu where they work but away from most of the tourist stuff. They love the Waimanalo Beach area and we couldn't have lucked out better with Jay and Barbara's cottage. The size is great for 4 people. Its an easy, 3-5 minute walk to the beach with beach access right at the end of the block. The cottage is quiet, clean and well kept, a very workable kitchen, great shower, and an awesome lanai - bright and private. Jay and Barbara were great. House lit up and they were waiting for us when we arrived even though we arrived late in the evening and hours later than expected. They had breakfast foods laid out so we didn't need to worry about shopping. They were great landlords too. If we needed them, they were there and extremely happy to help, but otherwise we felt very much like the land was ours.

This area is great for people who want to be away from the tourist areas,. Just be aware there's not much around aside from from a convenience store , a very small grocery store, and a couple of eateries most frequented by the locals, so be prepared to drive for groceries or to restaurants. The residential neighborhood is eclectic range of locals and retirement/vacation homes to some pretty shabby properties. Regardless the neighborhood was quiet, safe and the beach never had more than a couple of people on it as there's much easier access to the beach both day trippers a mile south and a couple of miles north.

Incredibly thoughtful & extremely generous hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Barb & Jay for your hospitality, for being such thoughtful and generous hosts! We especially enjoyed the treats (fresh papaya, guava drinks, orange juice, chips, eggs, bread, milk, cream, cereal, granola bars, etc. ) waiting for us when we arrived, too tired to think of grocery shopping... we loved being so close to a wonderful beach (one where I could actually go in the water!) and having a cozy, comfy, quiet place to come back to after a day of hiking or swimming... other things we really appreciated: Barb's binder with info on local restaurants, etc. (our favourite was the Thai place) ; wifi that worked without a hitch ; a washer and dryer, and lots of hot water... we loved the deck, private yet open with lots of light, and the fact that the house was set back from the street, well-hidden in a quiet little nook... Barb & Jay, you were the perfect hosts, easy to do business with, great communicators, thank you again for a rental that we enjoyed immensely and that we recommend to other vacationers without hesitation.

Perfect Vacation Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Just arrived back home from a wonderful week at Jay & Barbara's cottage in Waimanalo. I was there with my sister, son, and 2 grandchildren to celebrate my daughters wedding. We couldn't have had a better place to stay. It was perfect in it's simplicity and we felt at home the minute we walked in the door. Jay and Barbara had fresh fruit waiting for us and all the fixings for breakfast so we didn't have to rush out and go to the store. Many of our friends and relatives were staying at different rentals in the area but everyone always seemed to want to hang out on the lanai at our place because it was so welcoming. Even my daughter and son-in-law (the one's who got married) hung out there every evening. It's just a short 1/2 block walk to the beach which is absolutely breaktaking. We all had a great time romping in the surf. I will definately be returning and hope to stay several weeks on our next visit.
