About Morgan Beardsley
Morgan was born and raised here in Hawaii. Her great grandfather came to the islands from Norway in 1887. George was born and raised in Seattle Washington and comes from a long line of Norwegian fishermen. We both love to swim, snorkle, hike and boat. We live on the property and work in the real estate/building industry as real estate developers. The cottage was lovingly build by us on weekends, using recycled materials.
Morgan Beardsley purchased this Cottage in 2000
Why Morgan Beardsley chose Haleiwa
Park your car and walk! This is a great location if you want to walk and meander about the quaint town of Haleiwa. We have great beaches and surf breaks within walking distance of the property.
What makes this Cottage unique
Since we are situated on the Anahulu River, you can rent paddle boards and kayaks just down the street which allows you access to the river as well as the ocean.

Five stars! Could not have been better.
The location is great because the on-the-river landscape is beautiful and because it is possible to walk into the center of town or to the beach. The home itself is beautifully appointed and has everything you need for cooking or for going to the beach (or for sitting home and reading--lots of interesting books). All the practical needs have been thought of and taken care of and the aesthetic choices of furniture and decoration seem very thoughtfully chosen and pleasing. The porch that looks over the lawn and down to the river is enjoyable for grilling or dining or watching the stand-up paddlers and kayakers, two things you can do as well. The owners are attentive and very hospitable. I don't think a couple or a family could ask for a nicer place to stay on vacation.
Thank you for coming! It's always gratifying to have guests enjoy their time here in Haleiwa at our little guest house.
Morgan and George
The property was beautiful, clean and well laid out. Highly recommended
Our hosts were friendly, helpful and just great people. If we come in that direction again, we will be back. A wonderful experience.
Nice clean house near town and beaches
The house is charming, clean, and fresh. Well equipped kitchen. Easy walk to shops and restaurants. The private lanai looks down to the picturesque river and garden. You can paddle in front of the house with sea turtles. The only negative is some road noise and early morning roosters. I would recommend this house!
Charming and Quiet
We had a lovely week in the Haleiwa bungalow. Easy walk to beaches and town. Quiet and relaxing. The owners are very respectful. We would stay here again. Thank you. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Five stars.
We have been to most of the Hawaiian Islands and chose to use VRBO for the majority of our travels. When we first saw this cottage i was pleasently surprised how cute and quaint it was. In person.....WAY BETTER!!! I would recommend this cottage to anyone traveling to the North Shore! SUPER cute, SUPER clean, SUPER close to lots of shops, food and Rainbow Bridge where we found our kids joining in the fun of jumping off with the local boys! Morgan's hospitality was over the top! So kind and generous! Our family LOVED this cottage and can't wait to get back soon! Im sure we will be there again Morgan as our Daughter is getting ready for BYUH!
Cute Cottage But Beware
I'd like to give this cottage 4 stars, but because of my experience with the owner, I am being generous by giving 2. Here is our correspondence:
ME: We stayed at your cottage several weeks ago and I am now getting emails reminding me to write a review, which reminds me that I wanted to mention to you something about the cottage. When we checked in everything was neat and in order, except for that I noticed that the faucet in the bathroom still had toothpaste spit splatter on it. Then I noticed that the refrigerator doors and handle had smudges and hand marks on them. I cleaned them all off, but it did make me wonder what else hadn’t been done. Not exactly what one wants to see when they check into a rental.
I decided that I would not leave that information in the review before contacting you first.
ME: I didn’t hear back from you and am wondering if you received my email?
OWNER: I appreciate your feedback.
ME: well, thank you but that doesn't give me much of an explanation, or an apology that we found the cottage in an unacceptable condition upon arrival.
ME: Are you really not going to offer me anything more than an "appreciation" for my feedback?
Aaaannd, that's it. No explanation no apology, no reply, just a short, insincere response that didn't even address my concerns. Which is too bad because I would have considered staying here again if I had been offered a reasonable response. But I refuse to give someone who is so inept at customer service another dime of my money. Oh well. There are plenty of other places to stay in Oahu.
Our cottage is in walking distance to several beautiful beaches, paddleboarding access and Haleiwa town where you can find great restaurants, food trucks galore and many shops.
