Come and stay in our typical Hawaiian-style cottage just a few steps from the beach. It's a quiet beach, away from tourists and crowds. The incredible ever-changing ocean views include turtles swimming right in front of you, whales in the winter, lovely occasional rainbows, and awesome sunsets.
If you are looking for a small, newly renovated, afordable, picturesque enclave away from Honolulu, this is it. This is where people come to get away from the crowds and relax. Only 9 minutes to the historic town of Hale'iwa (site for 'Baywatch'), with unique art, shopping and restaurants, and just 15 minutes to Waimea Bay and Botanical Gardens.
The famous North Shore surf breaks are within a 15 minute drive, including Pipeline and Sunset Beach. There is a wide variety of excellent restaurants and great water sport activities right here.
For the golfers, Turtle Bay Golf and Tennis Resort is just a 30 minute drive, and Kahuku Golf just 40 minutes away.
There are no hotels in Mokuleia and almost empty white sand beaches go for miles in both directions. It is also a site for the TV Series 'Lost'. Sky Diving and Glider Rides are offered just down the street and kite-surfers will entertain you with their antics on the waves to the West at Mokuleia Beach Park.
There is a main house behind the cottage, and a small one-room unit in front, yet there's a nice yard and you have clear views of the ocean from the deck. Kids love the cottage because it's literally just a few steps to the beach, and it is safe and quiet -- except for that wonderful sound of the endless waves. You will find your stay here to be not only fun and relaxing, but even magical!
The main house behind the cottage is also available for rent.
It is a 5-bedroom and 4 bathroom home that sleeps 14 on 4 Queen-size beds, 2 bunk beds, 2 extra full size futons, 1 extra queen size air bed. Great for gathering a big family. Full kitchen with dishwasher, washer and dryer in the garage, decks around much of the house with ocean views, outside refrigerator, outside shower, large living room, 8-place dining table, flat-screen TV, DVD player. 3 suits upstairs, 2 bedroom downstairs with 1 bathroom. The master bedroom is upstairs with an exquisite view from the windows and decks, with a Queen-size bed, large closet, separate shower and a jacuzzi. The price is $2,000.00/night plus cleaning fee of $300.00 and 2,000.00 refundable damage fee deposit.
We're from Northern California, and fell in love with Hawaii many years ago. We always find our stays on the island to be relaxing, revitalizing, and always filled with some unique kind of Hawaiian magic. After so many years of visiting and renting, we were finally able to fulfill our dream of buying an oceanfront home, and we're happy to be able to share it with you.
Aurilene purchased this house in 2009
We like quiet, peaceful places away from crowds, where there are very few others on the beach. You can walk for miles on the beach and encounter very few people. It's a natural, magical place.
There's something about staying right on the ocean that we always find to be relaxing and rejuvenating. We feel the sound of the ocean and the ocean air have a wonderful healing effect.
We stayed for 10 days and love it. The cottage was as described. Very quiet. Just a short drive to town, and all the other beaches. We had breakfast and/or lunch on the patio, while watching the ski divers. The beach was just steps away, great for snorkeling and swimming. The views are incredible. Can't wait to return.
Highly recommend the Beachfront Cottage.
We spent 4 nights here. The setting was nice with a quiet neighborhood about 15 minutes drive from Haliewa. We watched gliders and sky divers daily, but did not see any sealife. Pretty choppy, so not so great for snorkeling this time, but we did use the provided snorkel gear (enough for most of our family- adults included) at other beautiful nearby beaches. Appreciated the new washer/dryer and the hammock outside. DVD player was nice, as we watched a movie from Redbox at the grocery store by Rainbow Bridge in town. This is not a new building, but it was clean and had most everything we needed.
It is so hard to find places like this one. My wife and I wanted to someplace quiet, simple, and by the ocean to spend our 5 year anniversary. This was it. The cottage was literally a stones throw from the ocean, and the views were incredible.
It was close enough to Haileiwa that we could run in for groceries or dinner etc..., but far enough away to be quiet and peaceful.
We stumbled upon this hidden gem by accident and boy, were we lucky!! The adorable, clean, well-kept cottage was such a great use of space. The place was such a treat for my young boys to have their beach time mere footsteps away, literally outside your door! It is the world's best secret!!!! The beach had a private feel and we could not believe that we saw turtles and WHALES while we were grilling our dinner on the patio! Skydivers and para-gliders also frequent the skies to get a glimpse of what we got to see every single morning. This place gave the ability to enjoy true "Hawaiian living". We had too much fun and can not wait to return. We just wanted to thank you for having such a wonderful house for us to enjoy, we were beyond thrilled.
This location is a mere 5 minutes on a spot where they filmed some footage for "LOST", if that counts for anything.
There is a Horseback Riding Ranch close to the property.
This was a great place to spend a week in Hawaii. It was a perfect fit for us (wife and me) and another couple. The property is very well maintained and the beach was great. We enjoyed seeing sky divers drifting down from the sky nearly every day to the nearby airport. It was a great place to do some swimming and snorkeling too. We will recommend it to our friends and family and would certainly book another visit if possible.
We enjoyed our five-night stay at the beachfront cottage. Everything is as described and photographed: very clean and comfortable. The cottage is on a quiet cul-de-sac and is just steps away from the beach. The two bedrooms were perfect for our family of four (with two twenty-something daughters). There is a nice patio right outside and, right by the beach, a BBQ area with a hammock.
The beach is beautiful (no sea wall here, which nearby properties may have). You can also get a great view of people parachuting.
My only suggestion for improvement would be to stock snorkeling equipment for adults.
Thanks for a great stay!
