If you are looking for a place with an excellent location, character, and gives you a hint of what Oahu was like before the high-rises, this is the place for you. The team at Trinity was professional and very helpful. The cottage is in terrific shape and has everything that you might want for either a short or long stay. I was there for three weeks. You are a short walk from Waikiki if you want to mingle with the tourist crowds but far enough away that you can ignore it. At Gold Coast Cottage you wake every morning and peer out of the bedroom window to check out the surf. ..just a peek but you are only about 50 feet from the ocean. Some other lucky folks have the spot right on the ocean. The cottage is spacious, tastefully furnished, and very comfortable. Because it is beautiful and historic you get lots of people stopping to admire it but they are not intrusive. So, all round: splurge, it is worth it!
