  • 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."

  • Fantastic beach house in Laie

    "I was highly impressed with this beach house located off of a quiet stretch of turtle beach. There is a dune that provides privacy from people passing by on the beach. The outdoor shower with hot water was greatly appreciated. There are many locations on the property to relax. We barbecued in the patio near the front of the house, and sat in rocking chairs on the back deck to watch the sunset. We were pleasantly surprised at the variety of cookware and appliances. The house has many floor and ceiling fans. One major benefit of staying here is the number of actual beds on the property. Most other listings use a lot of air mattresses. The spacious yard accommodated all of our cars with space left over for the kids to run around. Excellent customer service from the property manager. Will definitely stay here again. Highly recommended."

  • A REAL RELAXING VACATION - PERFECT!!!

    "We took a family trip to Hawaii for a week. Sue was amazing! She made us feel like we were family staying the week. The view from the apartment is breathtaking and you can literally see/hear the ocean all day. I counted the steps from the stairs to the beach - 12. Every morning my wife, daughter (3 yrs), and I would wake up in the early morning and walk the beach while watching the sunrise. The beach is impeccable and the waves vary from smooth to fun, but never too strong or big. The location is superb if you want to explore the "real" Hawaii. I spent many hours researching where we would stay in Hawaii; trust me - Sue is the way to go."
