Wiamanalo Beach Cottage
The cottage is located at the rear of a property with another cottage to the east and the main house to the south. There is mature shrubbery and fencing which provides good privacy. Cottage is older, in good condition with a dated decor, well maintained, clean, with all necessary amenities. Front deck area is in average condition with several deck boards needing replacement and the furniture is in need of replacement. The cottage is located within a very easy, 5 minute walk to a spectacular beach with incredible views and picture perfect setting. Mostly locals at the beach, with some tourists, but lots of room for everyone and great swimming. No snorkelling opportunities. Located in the village of Wiamanalo, minimal shopping, but an easy 15 minute drive to Kailua to the north with everything you will need. Downtown Honolulu and Waikiki are about a 45 minute drive, good roads and freeway for easy access to the city. Easy to get anywhere on the island from this location and can be to most areas from 1 to 1.5 hours driving time. Many amenities very close to this cottage, including Hanauma Bay, SeaLife Park, Diamond Head crater and several hiking trails and lookouts. An excellent location for a quiet, relaxing vacation, but close enough to all amenities. Highly recommend.
Jay and Barbara are very nice and live in the house next to the cottage. They provide food to get you through the first day.
The cottage itself is older and needs updating. The beds need to be replaced as does most of the furniture. There is no heating or ac which would be fine if the windows opened and closed more easily.
It was clean and the location was in a nice quiet neighborhood. The beach cannot be seen from the cottage. A short walk down the road gives access to a beautiful beach.
Best family friendly cottage
We had a great experience renting this cottage from Barb and Jay. It was so close to the beach we strolled there every day. We appreciated the food and coffee they left as welcome gifts, it made our late flights bearable. The house is quaint and filled with so many useful things it made our stay very comfortable. Already looking to see when we can return. Mahalo.
No frills, but close to beach
Owners are great, very friendly and accommodating
Kitchen had eggs, milk, juice, cereal, coffee and papaya stocked when we arrived
Its only a 5 minute walk to the beach
House had all the kitchen and bathroom basics plus beach toys, chairs, etc
Privacy......There are 3 houses on the property and although some plants help create a visual barrier, everyone has their jalousie windows open so you hear, TVs, coughing, etc and know that everyone can hear your conversations on the deck as well.
Smell...compost, sewage...not sure..but it was strong sometimes and we had to leave
Cleanliness... Shower curtain, baseboards, grout, curtains, all had mold. Humidity makes it harder to keep up on, I get that, but as a guest, be prepared. Same with bugs. By the last day I was taking a shower with bugs on the floor and the black mold shower curtain sticking to my legs and was very ready to go home! Also lots of cabinets and drawers contained other peoples leftover stuff which was kind of gross... half used jar of peanut butter, used toothpastes, body wash, hair brushes, random hats, socks, etc,
Appliances.... Dryer and Fridge are both tiny. Tough to stock up on groceries so we had to make several trips and dryer could only handle about 3 towels at a time so laundry took a while too.
Photos...the listing photos of the main areas are pretty accurate but there's a reason that the owners haven't included photos of the kitchen and bathroom. Although functional, they are pretty shabby.
COMFORT..... Beds and pillows are not very comfortable. Also couch is a very firm futon
If you're looking for a very basic, no frills, home base and plan to spend most of your time at the beach, this is a great spot. If you're particular about cleanliness, privacy or luxury, you probably want to keep looking
Some additional comments: We are in a local neighborhood adjacent to the most beautiful beach in Hawaii. There are also spectacular mountain views above the houses. Part of living in a neighborhood in Hawaii is being able to, for better or worse, hear your neighbors. (as well as the ocean.) We too, smelled something and found the people on next street were having their septic tank pumped. Other issues mentioned have been addressed, as we had a long period of heavy rain and wind just before the dates guests were were here. It's all rainbows over the mountains now . Cottage is affordable and feels homey, it does not have a resort ambiance.
Home away from home
This is a great place to go to get away from the traffic and noise from the city. Cozy cottage with all the essentials. We were on the move most of our vacation but it was great to have a place where we could go and relax and cook meals before taking a short walk down to the beach. Barbara and Jay are super nice, and went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. I have read other reviews complaining about ants but we had no troubles with them. The beds were comfortable and everything was clean. If you're looking for a resort experience this is not the place for you, but if you are looking for a nice comfortable place to call home for your vacation then I highly recommend staying here. The beach here is beautiful and never crowded. We loved our experience here.
