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.

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.

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

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.

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!

A very peaceful and relaxed place to stay away from the fast paced Waikiki beach side. We loved being on this side of the island and explored all the beaches from the North Shore down to Kailua. Found a turtle on our beach the very first night and watched it meander back into the ocean. Lazy mornings eating breakfast on the patio and taking walks were a perfect start to our day. Lovely 12 day stay!

Wonderful place to stay if you want to get away from the busyness of Waikiki/Honolulu area. Nice long stretch of beach in both directions make for great peaceful strolls in paradise. Accommodations were great with trundle bed this gives two nice twin beds in living area and the futon...makes for cozy arrangements. Lanai/patio is wonderful to enjoy morning and evening meals. Very nice to have beach chairs to use. Kitchen spices were very limited so we purchased already marinated meats to BBQ. Our only want, other than wanting to stay another week, was for a small cooler to pack a lunch when going out for the day.
Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review. We have a cooler added to our cottage items. Please come c
Back again to our Perfect Paradise.

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. '
