What a wonderful stay we had! This was my families first stay in Hawaii and we had a blast. We first stayed in a place in Waikiki. While that was nice it was very noisy and crowded. It was so refreshing to move away from all the crowds and noise to this very peaceful and charming cottage. We were still 5 minutes away from stores and restaurants but we didn't have to hear fire trucks and motorcycles. The owners are very nice and would e-mail back and forth prior to answer any of the questions we had. They live next door and are willing to assist you with anything you would need. They also respect your privacy and we hardly saw or heard them. The cottage was equipped with anything you could possibly want. They even leave you a few surprises. There is a huge deck that has a couch, TV, a hammock, and hot tub. I loved watching TV from the hot tub at night after a long day of tours. There was even an outdoor shower. They have a fire pit, grill, one person sauna, a shed with beach equipment, a/c (which we didn't need because of the breeze), cable TV and WiFi. There is one bed and then another bed up in a loft. I slept in the loft and I was very comfortable. Everything was very clean and new. I can't wait to plan another vacation. I know where I will be staying.
