  • Perfect getaway

    "My little family decided to have a staycation on the other side of the island for a few days and found this beach cottage. It is a true gem. It is even more picturesque than described, and is very authentic, quaint-- chabby chic. When we met Minerva and she walked us to the back to show us the view, we were delighted to count 6 sea turtles swimming around directly in front of the cottage! They were there every single day. There are many places to eat around the cottage-- breakfast is just a 3 minute stroll across the street to the Hukilau Cafe. It was easy to get groceries from the local markets and make fresh meals at the cottage-- we even grilled some steak and corn on a breezy evening. It was so relaxing early in the mornings to take a hot mug of freshly brewed coffee and sit on the edge of the yard, legs dangling over into the sand-- watching the Honu swimming gracefully by. The beach itself-- I must have walked the shore three times a day, and hardly met another person out there, which was so lovely and peaceful. Snorkeling right in front of the cottage also was amazingly refreshing, as well. They have a shed full of play things that the children can enjoy, and also body boards for the adults. Minerva was warm, genuine and absolutely lovely. She was always there for questions and concerns, and had many suggestions for local flavors in the area. There is an outdoor shower that has hot water, and proved useful after many excursions in the sand and water. Although there isn't any air conditioning, there was absolutely no need for it, as we had the windows open and doors for a perfect cross breeze-- that was my favorite part of our stay. The fresh ocean breeze. Waking up every morning to the gorgeous ocean view was unbelievably uplifting, and falling asleep to the crashing of tumultuous waves every night was simply mesmerizing. The little cottage is my favorite staycation thus far. Thank you so much, Minerva for creating such a unique and charming, delightful experience. My girls still ask to return to the Magical Honu Cottage."

  • Location was perfect!

    "My family & I attended a family reunion @ the Hukilau Beach and Marci's condo was absolutely perfect! There was a person who parked in my assigned parking spot but that was quickly resolved once Marci was informed. Having a washer & dryer directly in front of us was so convenient! We never had to go far for anything we needed as most were provided. I'd recommend this condo to anyone wanting a staycation or just some time away from the business of Waikiki. My family & I will definitely return in the future. Thank you again Marci for such a pleasant stay!!"

  • Great place!

    "We are locals and take a family stacation every year. This was a great place with plenty of room! It was comfortable and had a bunch of kitchen supplies. I do wish the living room area had screens on the windows and door too. There was a super nice breeze going through the house with the doors open but it let in a lot of flies. The big house next door had an event and there was a little bit of confusion about parking. First, I think it would have been really nice to have a courtesy call or email about having big trucks come through our lawn to set up. The coordinator was gracious enough to ask if we wanted it to be moved to the front, I told her to stay since it was parked well to the side and would have to load up after the event. And, they were told they could park in front of our house. We had a family member coming from work and had to let people know not to park there, and a couple of times some came knocking on our door. Aside from that, it was a great stay and am looking forward to it again."
