Hauula Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bath, Sleeps 6

Our Seaside cottage is a private home located right on the ocean, in the quaint Hawaiian village of Hauula. Within walking distance of 2 art galleries, our home offers the perfect setting for a family vacation. The outdoor covered lanai runs the length of the home, with steps leading right to the water. You could not get any closer to the sea, at high tide the water laps against the sea wall and crabe peek over to see whats goung on on the lanai. Its a great place to spend hours in the hammock while enjoying the ocean breeze with a good book, or sharing a meal with friends and family. Our home has 3 bedrooms; one with a king, one a queen ant the third has full bed. One of the bedrooms has a private bath. . While it will be hard to leave our seaside retreat, there are many nearby attractions. Kualoa Ranch, where you can journey by horseback or off road vehicles, to to the site where Jurassic Park was filmed is 10 minutes to the south. The famed Pollyinisian Cultural Center is just 10 minutes to the north.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Hi Debbie,



We'll be leaving the house in an hour or so and I wanted to email to let you know what a truly wonderful, relaxing time we've had.



We had practically a private beach for our whole stay and the snorkeling, swimming and sunshine was just perfect! No seals or turtles to be seen, but a lot of happy memories made. The house was in great shape.



Thank you for your work, opening up this house and making it vacation rental. It was truly one of the best vacations we've had as a family. .



Warm Regards,
Jul 2013

Loved it!

  • 4 of 5
We had 3 adults & 2 children & had plenty of room. There was not much of a beach at the house when we were there so we didn't get to spend the amount of time lounging on our "almost private beach" as we had planned.
The house was suprisingly clean. We travel a lot and have stayed in some pretty scary places. But we felt right at home here with no need to wipe things down before my kids started touching everything.
The beds were very comfortable. The King size bed had a very thick foam pad on top which I really liked. It was extremly hot & humid while we were there & with no a/c it could get pretty uncomfortable. But there are 5 ceiling fans and 2 floor fans which helped a lot. Most of the time there was a really nice ocean breeze. However when 2 hurricane's decide to vacation in Hawaii at the same time as you do all winds stop. But after they were out of the area the winds started up again. Deb was great thru both hurricanes. She called to make sure we were aware and updated on the storms and gave us her advice and opinions on what to do as we were nervous nelly's due to the fact that we are from Ohio and basicly live in the middle of a corn field (as most Ohioans do) so the ocean during a hurricane can be quite intimidating.
I loved having a washer and dryer. We were able to pack lighter and do laundry a couple of times which left more room to take home souvenirs.
The location of the house ended up being a little too far north for us. We ended up spending a lot more time on the southern part of the island than we thot we would. But this in part was due to the fact that it was our 1st time there so we had to do all the "touristy" things and that we have friends that live in Honolulu that we went to visit several times. Ended up spending a lot more time in the car than we expected. & with a 3 & 7 year old it made our days a lot longer than we would have liked.
It was pretty noisy most of the time due to the Kam Highway directly in front of the house, the ocean roaring behind it and 7 fans running all the time. But we got used to it after awhile.
All in all we had a great time at this house. I would definitely recommend it. Thanks Deb for being so accommidating. We really enjoyed our time on Oahu. And since the hurricanes may or may not have been our fault since bad weather seems to follow us I will be sure to let you know where we will be vacationing in the future so u can plan accordingly.

Sunrises at this house were spectacular !!

  • 4 of 5
Was sad that I didn't have the sandy beach as depicted in the pictures, but that could be due to the time of our stay. Right off the lanai are concrete steps leading to navigable rocks then a short stretch of sand. Steps lead you to an almost solitary stretch (hundreds of feet out) of water that was either knee, waist or chest deep (I'm 5' tall); plenty of space to snorkel and let the tide bring you in. The pictures of the house are accurate with the exception of some wear on the lanai due to water being, literally, right there. Rooms and linens were clean (beds could use a little softness added). This is a small house, but we were comfortable (4 grown adults). Negatives for the house would be 1) there is no A/C in the house; it took us a couple days to find the right window/door to floor fan circulation (the weather was hot and humid) and 2) lack of A/C makes open windows a must and, therefore, there is traffic noise as house is strides off the King's highway. There were some military exercises going for a couple days; navy ship in the distance and helicopters doing some rounds over the water, but it was not disturbing to our stay whatsoever.

The Only Way To Vacation

  • 5 of 5
This was our second stay at the Bungalow and as is was even better the second time, everything was perfect. Except a little water pipe episode but just like Debbie said "Welcome to the Beach" and immediately had the problem resolved. Brought new comers to the Island and showed them what real Aloha Spirit is and how the North Shore is where it is at. Beach was perfect in mornings with a cup of coffee on the lanai and watching granddaughter play and find treasurers. Thanks for a wonderful relaxing vacation.

Best Vacation EVER

  • 5 of 5
We arrived in Hauula late Saturday night using the directions provided to us by Deb. We had no problem getting into the cottage and immediately settled in. Although the location is a little bit away from the city, we quickly found out that it was actually in the perfect spot for our family. The location was just about half way between Honolulu and the North Shore. We spent more time on the North Shore than anywhere else as it was just the speed we needed for our vacation. Our kids fell in love with the beach and the big hammock out front. With this vacation, we found it very hard to leave as we were so comfortable in the house. This is a very different feeling than staying in a hotel room with 2 kids who are constantly on top of one another. The ability to be able to cook, BBQ, and do laundry throughout the trip allowed us to be more relaxed and made it feel almost like home.

Thank you very much for allowing us to stay in your cute bungalow - we want to come back next year!!!

Most relaxing family vacation!

  • 5 of 5
This clean, basic home was absolutely perfect for our family of 5 (three kids under 10). If you’re looking for a luxury vacation home this isn't it - but for our family it was exactly what was needed. With just a few neighboring houses on either side we assumed the beach area we was going to be quiet but we had practically a private beach for our whole stay - the snorkeling, swimming and sunshine was just perfect! There was a basket of previous guest's beach toys/equipment which was a nice bonus. The calm shore was perfect for our young children who swam, paddled and floated most of the day! At low tide the beach was clean. At high tide the sea comes right up to the home and makes for great snorkeling. No seals or turtles to be seen during our stay, but a lot of happy memories made.

The kitchen was well equipped, beds comfy, and bathrooms clean, stocked with plenty of towels. WiFi worked great, a rather varied collection of novels on the bookshelf, we never even turned on the TV! With no AC in the home we kept all the windows facing the sea open which kept the house fairly cool even in upper 80s temps.

It was an easy drive from HNL airport. This area of the North Shore is a short drive to shops, attractions, good restaurants etc. but honestly we were content to sit on the back deck or on the beach most of the day. In comparison to the hustle/bustle of Honolulu this area of Oahu is much quieter (noting the house is right on the main road but from the back porch you don't hear the traffic). Debbie the owner was a pleasure to connect with, very helpful, attentive, and obviously cares deeply about her guests and home.

It was truly one of the best vacations we've had as a family. Thanks Debbie!

Great beachside home

  • 5 of 5
We are 4 adults and 2 kids and find this home to be spacious and very comfortable. It has everything you need for a home away from home....there are even swim/sand toys for the kids to use. The house is spotless and a great location for the sites of the North Shore.

If you are looking for fancy resort location this is not it, this is way better...a great way to relax, get up, put on the shorts and flip flops and hit the beach....leave your high heels and fancy out fits at home.

Deb has been great to work with and is allowing us to stay until the end of the day on our final day, since our flight leaves in the evening (yes, we're still here). We will have no hesitation in returning or recommending this house to anyone.
