Beautiful peaceful cottage.
Lovely peaceful cottage - truly a little piece of heaven a short walk to beautiful Lanikai Beach.
Comfortable and decorated with charm - a lovely deck surrounded by Hawaiian foliage to enjoy your morning coffee. Hosts Tony & Julie show what "ALOHA" means. They & Chopper their sweet dog were very welcoming and made us feel right at home- we came as strangers and left as friends. You have whatever you need- provided in the cottage as well as a day at the beach - chairs, cooler etc. If you want to escape the tourist traps and relax in paradise - this is the place! Make sure to try Buzz's restaurant and Kimo & Boots for banana pancakes with Macadamia Nut topping. Great location to explore other areas of the island - the pill box hike , the South & East coast with near by Kailia Beach Makapu'u Point, Halona Blowhole and snorkeling at Hanauma Bay. Even Diamond Head hike & Pearl Harbor are easy day trips. Even if you plan to do nothing but enjoy the beach - Lanikai Beach cannot be beat - it is gorgeous! Thank you Tony & Julie for sharing your piece of paradise - Mahalo & Aloha!
Perfectly situated to enjoy the best of Lanikai
My husband and I chose this lovely garden cottage for our honeymoon in Lanikai. The location was perfect - steps from the northernmost Lanikai beach access path and a short 5-min walk to the Pillbox Trail Head. Our hosts, Tony and Julie, were incredibly welcoming and gracious. They also have a very friendly white shepherd, Chopper, who often waited at the property gate to welcome us home from the beach in the afternoon. We stayed over Christmas, and our hosts had decorated the cottage with little festive touches, including a tiny Christmas tree. We discovered bell-shaped cookie cutters and decided to bake shortbread on Christmas Eve after a wonderful day at Lanikai Beach. The kitchen is very well-stocked. On our third day we exprienced a true Hawaiian thunderstorm! It stormed all day, and we were thankful for the nice living room area and TV with Netflix so that we could be cozy. The shower is also lovely and open to the air along the top. All of the windows and openings of the cottage were screened, so we didn’t have to worry about insects. After the thunderstorm, we noticed a lot more mosquitoes, so we bought bug spray for when we sat out on our lanai to enjoy meals. There is real privacy to the cottage, nestled at the back of the property with lush foliage all around. A natural wall of greenery and tall bamboo separates the cottage from the main house. We felt entirely comfortable sitting out on our lanai in our PJs to enjoy the morning songbirds with our breakfast. The cottage does not have AC, and in our opinion, you don’t need it. The lush, tall foliage on the property shades the cottage from the sun. There is a constant blow-through of natural air, and the ceiling fans do a great job. Our single recommendation for future guests is to bring some earplugs and/or a white noise maker (we brought both) to help get to sleep in the evenings. There is often noise from the neighboring property because they have a large, covered lanai and swimming pool out back, not even 20 feet from the bedroom of the cottage. The neighbours weren’t playing music or partying, it’s just that their loud voices and pool splashes were noisy. Overall, an incredible stay at this beautiful garden cottage. Muhalo Tony, Julie, and Chopper!
So glad you enjoyed your stay but also sorry to hear that the noise from the pool next door was an issue! We are in the process of looking at new windows and screens for the entire cottage that will preserve the airflow as desired, but be able to be closed to eliminate sound and make air-conditioning available as needed. Lanikai homes do tend be be close to each other-everyone wants a little piece of paradise!
Awesome everything! Looks better in real life than the pictures!!
Julie and Tony are the most wonderful people. Kind, warm and welcoming.
Even Chopper the most beautiful white German Shepard I have ever seen.
EVERYTHING is available for you for the beach. Which is so excellent when you are traveling with luggage...who wants to cart along in the luggage a beach towel! or a cooler! Not me! Our hidden Hide-a-way was very clean and we had everything we needed. The decor was nicely appointed, it felt very beachy and calm. Comfy bed with lots of extra towels and extra everything. And really just steps from the beach.
Tony you will be happy to know that I just came from the grocery store with Made in Italy, Italian soft wheat flour TIPO '00'. Edmund is thrilled and pizza on the menu tuesday!!!
Thank you again for all of your kindness and hospitality.
Yvonne and Edmund
Perfectly located a short walk to the most beautiful beach.
Cottage was clean and well appointed. Bed was super comfortable. Hosts Tony and Julie could not have been more helpful. They had fresh fruit and flowers for us upon arrival. Left us a list of things to do and places to eat. A key tag for grocery store discounts. Cottage is very private. They supplied beach chairs towels umbrellas books boogie board ect. An overall relaxing perfect vacation. We stayed for a week wished it could have been a month. Thanks for a perfect vacation Tony and Julie.
Really enjoyed our stay here. Great location, just a block way from some of the finest beaches in Hawaii. Tony and his wife are amazing hosts, extremely kind. Not trying to set expectations here, but Tony is Italian and loves to cook. Several times during our stay he came over with a plate of his hand-crafted fine Italian cooking. Yum! Made our already enjoyable stay even more pleasant. Would definitely recommend!

This cottage is private and close to the beach. It was clean, well decorated,light and airy. The bed quality and very comfortable. The
kitchen well equipped with all you need to prepare a banquet. As a bonus
beach equipment was available for use.
We stayed a week and that was not long enough. We difinitely would
return. Our visit was quite, however there is potential for noise as
as neighbors are very close. Thank you Tony and Julie.
