A memorable family vacation in paradise

  • 5 of 5

This cozy Cottage is ideal for families of various ages (in our case, 2 grandparents, son, daughter-in-law, and a 13-year-old grandson). It is far enough back from the highway to avoid noise and danger. Close to the beach by a very short walk in either direction. The kids had a ball with boogie boarding, sand castle building, surf lessons, and general beach sports.

The xlnt Waimea Bay Botanic Garden is within a mile of the Cottage. We spent a full day there. This is 5-star "Bot" compared to the barely 2-star Foster Garden in Honolulu, and is right down the street! General admission is a bit high at $15, but senior tickets are just $7.50. There’s a waterfall and swimming hole at the end of the trail, so bring a swimsuit. Free access is included with your admission ticket. Lifeguards are on duty and life vests are provided.

The big Foodland market is within walking distance of the Cottage. Nearby historic Haleiwa proved to be a fun town for a day's visit. Kaneohe and Kailua are a lovely scenic drive along the east coast, another fine day trip.

We loved watching and photo'ing the intrepid surfers riding the world famous waves. Sections of beach with dangerous undertow conditions are clearly posted.

The Cottage amenities include a new BBQ grill, which was great for family dinners of steaks and chops. Lots of extra beach towels and boogie boards were a welcome addition to the other household supplies. The garden around the squeaky clean Cottage is lovely and restful. The sound of the surf at night lulls you to sleep. Three little green geckos kept watch over the house while we enjoyed the many attractions on the island during the day.

We all achieved our R&R goal at the Cottage, although I confess to doing some work on my forthcoming (April 2012) book "Arthritis and Autoimmune Disease: The Infection Connection." We were thankful for the strong WiFi connection that made this work possible, as well as keeping in touch by email with family and friends on the mainland. The week went by far too quickly!

Thanks to the owners, who went the extra mile to make sure our stay was trouble-free and wonderful.

Great Location, Well Maintained, and Friendly Service

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the Waimea Cottage with my wife, baby, and parents-in-law and we had a great time. I'm originally from Honolulu (now living abroad) and have spent a lot of time on the North Shore so I was especially picky when choosing this place and in the end we were all very happy with the choice.


- Overall a well-maintained and clean rental with nice little touches like soft bathroom towels, comfortable beds, and plenty of beach towels

- Hearing the ocean hit the rocks from our bedrooms

- Felt a little bigger than the pictures shown (the surrounding trees provide nice privacy but don't make it feel like the house is closed in, which is a fear I had before arriving)

- Privacy (neighbors cannot see into the house)

- Location (walking distance to great beaches and the best grocery store on the North Shore)

- Fun beach cruiser bikes for use

- Very friendly service overall made the booking and all interactions enjoyable

- We didn't have any indoor "pests" during our stay which is pretty rare for a rental in Hawaii

Cons (minor)

- Sliding door between two main bedrooms could be an issue for some since there is no sound privacy

- A info sheet for the property with some basic info and FAQs would have been useful (e.g. house line phone number, local grocery store opening hours, info on key attractions within walking distance)

Lastly, there is a very friendly reliable property manager who was extremely quick to respond to our questions/requests. That is a huge benefit as it can be a major bummer when you are staying somewhere and there is nobody around to answer your questions or fix any minor issues that might pop up.

I would definitely recommend this property to anyone.

Waimea Cottage Dream Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful vacation ever staying at this beach house just steps from Waimea Bay Beach and Three Tables Beach on the incredibly beautiful North Shore of Oahu. We could hear any waves hitting the shore at night - that's how close this cottage is to the beautiful white sand beaches (less than a minute walk away from the house). Every day we took beautiful long walks and used the cottage's bicycles to cruise along the bike path, exploring all the North Shore has to offer. The cottage is conveniently located just a block away from the Foodland supermarket and from the Coffee Bean cafe. The cottage is cozy and slept five of us comfortably. It has a small but well appointed kitchen and everything else you could need. At night we would BBQ on the deck and eat outside on the lanai. It's a great value - we would recommend this house any group or family.

Working with the owners of this property was fast, easy and convenient, and we have nothing but great things to say about our overall experience.

We are already booking our trip again for the same house next year.

Comfortable house, great location, perfect for our stay on the North Shore

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this property. It is exactly as advertised, and in fact the pictures and description do not do justice to how nice the house is and how many amazing beaches and other destinations there are nearby. It was also very convenient to have a full grocery store walking distance up the street. Great location!

We stayed with 3 adults (4 adults for 2 of the nights) and 2 children ages 10 and 12. The size of the cottage was perfect for us - definitely much better than trying to get hotel rooms for our group. The bedrooms were all very nice with very comfortable beds. I appreciated the large closets and full sized dressers and nights stands in each room so that we could unpack and feel at home for our 5 nights there. I also appreciated two very nice full-size bathrooms with showers so everyone could get cleaned up and ready quickly without waiting on a single bathroom. The living room couches are comfortable and it was nice to have the TV there for the kids during down time and I appreciated the wifi which was very reliable and strong.

The kitchen was very well stocked with everything we needed. We cooked out on the patio grill, and there is upgraded wood patio furniture that is currently not pictured, which was very nice. My girls loved having all of the boogie boards and beach equipment available, and it is perfectly located just a few steps from Three Tables Beach. The snorkeling at Three Tables and at Shark's Cove (just a little further up the street - also within walking distance) was phenomenal. Waimea Beach was amazing - we went there for swimming at sunset several times, and to jump off the famous rock. Not too many reviews have mentioned the Waimea Valley which is right there as well, just east of the beach. It has a beautiful botanical garden and walking trails that leads to a waterfall where you can swim. We really enjoyed visiting this area.

Aside from all of the beaches, attractions, and conveniences right within walking distance, I also found that the house was very centrally located for a variety of North Shore activities. Just a few miles to the south is historic Haleiwa Town, with great restaurants and quaint small surf town vibe. Just a few miles to the north are the can't-miss shrimp trucks in and around Kahuku. The Polynesian Cultural Center in Laie is also just a short drive. It's in the perfect location for all of your North Shore exploration. We will definitely return next time we visit Hawaii. Thanks!

Great Place For Families! Awesome Location!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this place! We will definitely be staying here again. Steps away a beautiful family friendly beach called Three Tables and the Foodland grocery store.

The snorkeling is awesome at Three Tables. We swam with sea turtles and schools of beautiful fish. We also walked to stunning Waimea bay to jump from the rocks.... did I mention this is an awesome location? :-)

This cottage is a clean, cozy, comfortable place to stay and it suited our needs very well.

Some of the complaints listed in other posts:

1 - Little privacy, The rooms are separated by sliding doors and so you can hear conversations from one room to the next. Not a problem for our family. In my opinion, this allows you to open up the house and let the cool breeze in. We liked this feature.

2 - In the morning, there is some road/traffic noise, but there are chickens crowing also. So even with out the road you will have some noise. Note: most houses on North Shore are close to the road.

3 - The kitchen is small. True, but not a problem for us.

For us, the location, washer/dryer, out door shower, clean, cozy setting far outweighed any of these minor complaints.

family graduation celebration

  • 5 of 5

We took a Hawaii vacation to celebrate a couple of graduations in the family and finally take a nice vacation together. We looked for rentals away from the madness of the city.....found this cottage and couldn't ask for anything more. It was relatively affordable compared to the hotel cost for 4 adults, and it was a very nice property. The cottage itself was VERY comfortable and well kept. There was not any point that we weren't completely relaxed there. The kitchen was great because we did not have to eat out every meal. Access to the beach was great......a 2 house walk down the street and there it was (very close). I have absolutely no complaints and only praise about this rental and would recommend it to everyone...........thanks guys for sharing this home this way

Car: recommended

We are located right on the ocean, in the middle of the world famous North Shore of Oahu, at Waimea Bay, 10 minutes north by car of the town of Haleiwa. Waimea Bay beach and and Three Tables Beach, Sharks's Cove, Foodland supermarket and Starbucks are all just a quick walk from our house. We are approximately a 45 minute drive away from Honolulu international airport. We have bicycles that you can rent to explore the bike path that wraps around the North Shore.

Other Activities: Walking to distance to the most famous beaches and surf spots in Hawaii.

Golf: Two full 18 hole courses are located at Turtle Bay Resort, just a 10 minute drive away form this house.
