ROMANTIC COTTAGE BY THE SEA, NESTLED IN LUSH TROPICAL GARDEN

Waimanalo Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, sleeps 1-4

Welcome to 'Cottage by the Sea'---an ideal place for rest, relaxation and romance.

Imagine a place that feels so far off the beaten path you can still feel the spirit of 'Old Hawaii' gracing the rooms of this special Waimanalo gem.

It is simple yet perfect, complete with all the details that make a place truly comfortable and homey. The cottage is decorated with many personal touches, tropical and artistic with its own unique feeling.

Walk up a beautiful stone pathway; edged with colorful plants, tall palms, and banana trees, to enter into this very private enchanted domain.

The sun dappled porch calls to you, strewn with the fushia and purple petals of the bouganvillas that frame it, a symphony of birds singing their welcome. Feel the sense of peace, of coming to your home away from home.

A two minute walk down the road will take you to one of the most beautiful beaches in Hawaii. Sunrise is spectacular.

Enjoy a cup of coffee and watch the show!

A cool and romantic bedroom features a queen size bed with ceiling fan, and beautiful island art to create a sensual and very Hawaiian type of ambiance.

Guests repeatedly tell me how at home they feel here, with the cozy atmosphere and attention to detail so evident.

The cottage is nestled in a tropical garden filled with banana and papaya trees, colorful flowers and the fragrant aroma of plumerias floating on the ocean breeze. Birdsong and the sound of the ocean surf fill the garden with its own special music.

The location is ideal, in a residential country setting and only two houses from one of the most beautiful beaches on the island (in 2001 National Geographic named it one of the most beautiful beaches in the world!).

The beach is totally undeveloped, just miles of undisturbed beauty with the stunning grandeur of the Ko'olau Mountains hugging the coastline in a spectacular embrace.

All this is only a two minute walk from the cottage!

In the back there is a private yard lush with tropical plants. The backyard has a gas barbecue grill with a dining table and a couple of lounge chairs by the little water fall, perfect for star gazing at night or lounging under the endless summer sun.

Welcome to a little piece of paradise. Restore your spirit and feel the peace within.

Let the sound of the waves caress you to sleep at night and embrace the morning with another perfect day at the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear Skye,

This cottage reminds us of a second home, or, more precisely, it feels like the original one: a dwelling of the heart.

This is why we return again and again.

Small but lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I and our two teenage sons stayed at Skye's Cottage by the Sea in mid July and were very happy with it. It was very clean, comfortable, and had everything we needed for our stay. It's in a residential neighborhood and was nice and quiet even though there are lots of houses close by.

There was a small grocery nearby as well as some restaurants that were within walking distance. The beach was a short walk down the street and was absolutely beautiful. We spent a lot of time there.

Although we didn't cook much while we were there, the kitchen appeared to be well stocked with pots and pans and utensils. Skye supplied coolers, chairs, boogie boards, and even has a gas grill in the private backyard.

Only downside was that it was pretty hot while we were there (unusually so, I think) and the little air conditioner had a hard time keeping up. We only ran it at night so it would be pretty hot in the cottage when we would come in in the afternoon. It would eventually cool things down but if you're really hot natured you might want to avoid July.

Overall, a nice stay.

Skye- Thank you for entrusting your home to us. This was our first official family vacation as a family of four- Owen 1 and Joshua 2, and it was perfect! The gorgeous beach, friendly people, quiet neighborhood, and home away from home was the right fit. We can't wait to return. The boys also LOVED dancing in the rain in the backyard:) Perfect location. We were hesitant at first booking a vacation rental online, but it was well worth it.

Great location for relaxation

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed here twice and look forward to our third stay next year. Watch a sunrise on a beautiful beach to start your day. Enjoy the many things to do within an easy drive and return to the beach to watch the moonrise and stars which are outstanding to finish the day. As you fall asleep you can hear the waves softly lulling you to sleep. The cottage is very private and has everything you'll need to cook your meals which helps keep your costs down. We loved using the grill in our own private back yard. I've stayed at many locations on Oahu and have found the Cottage by the Sea to be the best. Can't wait to return.

Staying here did not disappoint! Skye immediately makes you feel at home. This cottage was everything we had expected. It truly is a 4 minute walk to a beautiful beach. The cottage is quiet and private and comfortable. We found it to be the perfect location. You can drive up the beautiful shorelines either direction and find and multitude of things to do. It was great to be able get back from a busy day and relax, walk to the beach and sip our favorite beverage and possibly find some waves. Being able to cook our own meals is a big plus too! Beats $70 on average for a meal in Waikiki. Highly recommend! Mahalo nui loa Skye. Great memories.

'NALO TOWN... BEST SIDE OF THE ISLAND TO STAY!!!

'NALO TOWN... BEST SIDE OF THE ISLAND TO STAY!!!
  • 5 of 5
First off, Skye was amazing to work with! So cool and down to earth! She provided us with boogie boards, a cooler, beach chairs and snorkeling gear without even asking! She even brought us a battery powered lantern as Hurricane Flossie approached Oahu. She assured us that she was not worried at all and that put us at great ease. The storm never hit by the way, but if it did, we knew we would've been in great hands with Skye.
You think these photos look amazing? Wait till you see it all in person. Nothing can describe the calm and beauty of the property and the (literally 1-2 minute walk to) white sand beach next door.
We fell in love with Cottage by the Sea. I'm definitely coming back.
You like food??? So many great eateries within minutes (walkable for sure) of the cottage. You'll probably read about many of these places in your guidebooks and some not so much. Do not miss out on Tersty Treats. Specializing in fresh caught fish and the best fresh poke and not just Ahi. Salmon, mussel, crab, etc.. such great people and right next door to 7/11 for your spam musubi cravings. Shima's supermarket, also next door, has everything (cheap booze/beer). It's a one stop shop before you hit the beach for the day.
Keneke's plate lunch is the epitome of Hawaiian fare. Walking distance and cheap as all hell. Sweet Home Waimanalo was AMAZING and very environmentally conscious. Specializing in locally grown produce and very tasty. Plenty of options for all kinds of diets... Vegan, veggie, glutards, carnivores, etc... Get the acai smoothie for your hangover. Ooh make sure to drive 15 minutes north to Kailua Beach! Worth it all the way! Stop in at Whole Foods (I know, I know) on the way back to the cottage and get a fresh piece of monchong (Hawaiian "halibut") to BBQ in your sweet private yard. A MUST.
Visit Sandy Beach for sure. Take a hike up the Makapu'u Lighthouse for an unforgettable view of this side of the island.
Overall, very old school Hawaii feel here with the nicest of people. You will see some poverty here and there in 'Nalo Town, but it's the reality of all places, especially here in Oakland, CA where I write this now. But this is real and I'll take it any day over Waikiki. Real people, real food, real safe, really affordable and REAL RELAXING. There is so much more I can write here but I'm running out of room. TRUE PARADISE!
Thank you Skye!

We'll see you again ASAP!

Oscar from Oakland, CA.

We had such a wonderful time at the cottage by the sea. In our opinion it is the only way go. It is so nice to come back to the cottage after a long day out. No sky rise hotel no traffic no thousands of tourists. It just felt like coming home each day. We have used VRBO many times for our vacation destinations and have never been disappointed. The cottage by the sea is now our favorite.
