About Terrie

I have lived in Hawaii all my life and finally got a place near the ocean to enjoy in my Senior years. I spend days here and have a difficult time going back to my city house. I love fishing and swimming and can watch my fishing pole from the living room, however, now I can also enjoy the sound of the waves, the beautiful mornings and lovely sunsets from my little Hale.

Why Terrie chose Punaluu

I have rented house all the way down the shore of Punaluu, Hauula, and Laie. This area was always my favorite because of the excellent beach that is never crowded. To be able to stay in my swim suit all day going into the water, out to cook, into the water, out for a drink and back into the water is the true Hawaiian Lifestyle.

What makes this cottage unique

This little cottage actually is enjoyed by all my family and friends. It is just the right size to entertain or just be an intimate hideaway. The right music at sunset will make for a wonderful memory.

It is perfect for an intimate wedding which we can arrange for you. www.easleydesigns.com

Wow!

What an amazing place to get away and relax! We spent the week of Christmas at Terrie's beautiful piece of paradise. It was exactly what my family was looking for. We were able to swim and snorkel every day, explore the island, and just spend time together relaxing. Terrie was very helpful from answering questions to providing all the comforts of home. We will be back!

Wonderful home away from home - only more relaxing

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful stay we had - best in years and years. Being almost on the beach with a covered porch was delightful; nothing like putting up your feet, sipping coffee and watching the sunrise was unbeatable. then going for a walk on the beach by strolling there in a couple seconds - ah! wish we could have stayed longer than our 9 nights.

Everything in the cottage was clean, attractive, neatly prepared, high quality. The chairs and table on the beach were attractive, comfortable and solid metal frames; the décor inside was attractive, thoughtful and fun (turquoise kitchen utensils),

Every thing we needed was already there: silverware, cooking utensils, pots and pans, towels, shampoo. All we needed was our clothing and food. The location is only a few minutes from a major general food store and sightseeing is minutes away, too with lush cliffs if you turn one way and other sights if you drive the other way.

Oh, and the manager was really helpful in so many ways, and really friendly. Highly recommended..

Sigh! Oh, to go back!

Authentic Hawaii

  • of 5
The property is located between spectacular mountains and a beautiful beach, about 50 minutes from Honolulu. This is a perfect location for anyone who is seeking a quiet place as a vacation destination. The cottage is cozy and has everything you'll need for your stay. We ate all our meals on lanai, which faces the ocean. What a treat!! The beach is about 20 steps from the lanai. The biggest plus of the property is its location in an undeveloped, authentic Hawaiian countryside.

Welcoming & right on the beach

Welcoming & right on the beach

The cottage was very quaint and fully stocked. The pictures are very accurate. We snorkelled almost every day. I saw the resident turtle following my mom while we were snorkelling but it always stayed behind her so she missed it. Terry helped me surprise my mom for her 60th birthday with beautiful Hawaiian flower bouquet & a gift bag of goodies. She had it all set up & waiting when we arrived! The men walking around at night with flashlights are security guards for the property. It took us a day to figure that out. During the day we noticed their shirts are marked but that was difficult to see at night. The lanai was amazing. We only we inside to sleep/shower. Otherwise we were outside on the beach or lanai. Thank you, Terry for sharing your sweet little cottage with such generousity. It was a delight!

Owner's Response: Next time you're here I'll try to get the turtle to swim in front of your mom so she can make friends with them. So much for coming and for taking such good care of my little paradise.

a perfect getaway!

  • 4 of 5
A great place to get away from it all and just relax! Terri's by the sea is the perfect spot for a couple's getaway. Located on a quiet beach, the place was stocked with everything we needed for a week by the sea. Plenty of dishes and pot and pans, some snorkel gear and boogie boards, and towels, beach chairs etc. Just bring groceries and a swim suit and you'll be good to go!

For a relaxing time this is hard to beat.

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I just returned from a week here and had a brilliant time.

We selected this apartment because it was right on the beach - I counted and it was 14 steps to the beach. It is part of a little complex - Pats of Punaluu - and as such you get to use the facilities that they have: pool (we never did as the sea is closer!); fitness room; BBQ's.

In addition to the main building, their are 3 cottages, each comprising 4 units. We picked this particular unit because (a) it is on the ground floor, so no walking up and down stairs - you are straight on the beach & (b) this has its patio area directly out front whereas the others have theirs to the side.

We loved the beach. It's not the widest, but it's clean and quiet and it's 1 mile long (ran it every day). The water is clear and it's shallow with some coral. I swam every day and saw the resident turtle several times.

The unit itself was comfortable and fairly well equipped, but you need to bear in mind that this is an older complex and it does show some signs of wear: you are not staying at the Westin or Hilton or Marriott. If you're expecting egyptian cotton sheets and memory foam mattresses, then Turtle Bay is right up the road.

Facility wise, the unit has; shower, single vanity sink, kitchen, cooker, toaster, microwave, fridge, plates/glasses/cutlery for 4-6, pots, griddle, blender, coffee maker, cable TV, DVD player, wi-fi, radio. We found the kitchen had enough for what we needed and enjoyed making breakfast and sitting on the patio every morning.

There's quite a few nice touches that make me believe the owner really cares for this place: there's basins of water placed out front and back for you to wipe your feet; the kitchen units and pots feel relatively new; the radio has a Bluetooth connection to connect your phone/tablet to play music.

Location wise, the unit is excellent - right on the beach, what's more to ask for!?! The wider area of Punaluu itself doesn't have that much. There's a Subway sandwich shop a few minutes away. There's a shrimp-truck & market a mile away. Other than that you're driving: to the super-market, to the restaurants, to the North Shore, to Waikiki.

For a couple (small family at a push) looking to relax and unwind, it was perfect. If your party is larger or you want 'facilities' or you want to be able to walk to entertainment nearby, you may want to re-think.

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a nice review! You are right, I just love my cottage and only want people like you who know the fine points to look for to rent it. As you say it is for people who want a part of old Hawaii....shabby-sheek. Please come back again and I'll be sure to meet and greet you. Mahalo!

Notes:
This little piece of heaven is located right on A beautiful piece of property and the best beach for swimming and snorkeling. It is calm and private. Almost every morning you could see a large turtles relaxing in the sand or swimming nearby. The turtles let you swim close to them calmly. The cottage is completely furnished for all your needs while you're on vacation. Once you visit and stay here you want to return many times. The location is perfect for a small wedding on the beach. Plus we are a wedding company and can coordinate everything for you, including flowers www.easleydesigns.com What we don't offer above we can probably acquire for you no problem. If your wedding party needs another accommodation, we can coordinate with other owners on the property. There are no stairs, therefore easy for wheelchair accessibility. Can't express enough how lovely this location is. '
