  • 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."

  • Paradise !!!!

    "Our family had an amazing stay at the Laie Beach Retreat. The location of this property couldn’t be better. We loved that the backyard is steps away from the beach. There is a deck, a yard, and a knoll that all have spectacular views of the sea. We spent many hours enjoying the beautiful ocean views while drinking coffee in the morning, reading during the day, and then sipping beverages in the evening as the sun sets. The ocean issafe and super fun for young children and adults. It is perfect for bogie boarding, stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, and swimming.The house is wonderful for big families or groups. It is large, roomy, and has everything that families of all sizes would need. There is a spacious living room with an ocean view,a dining room, a large kitchen, and amply eating space. There is a private upstairs bedroom with a loft. There is a downstairs bedroom with a bathroom. There are two separate cottages for individual families. There is also a large lawn area in the back of the house that can be used for parking, as well an area for children to play.The house is well stocked and clean. There are plenty of towels, bedding, board games,books, and a washer and dryer. There is a wonderful outside shower with warm water that is great after a swim in the ocean.We spent a lot of time relaxing, reading, spending time together, and enjoying the ocean. There are also outstanding local restaurants. We were able to go on challenging hikes that had varied degrees of intensity. It is a perfect way to spend a vacation. We loved everything about this family home and wouldn’t stay anywhere else!!!"

  • 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!!"

  • Amazing and perfect!

    "This is the perfect location to be away from the crowds. The beach is so close and is perfect for lounging, swimming and snorkling. The bungalow is perfect for anyone looking to cook your own meals. It has everything you could possibly need. The front deck is huge and Greg was very accommodating with our need for a late check out and early check in. Couldn't have had a better experience!"
