Everything we could possible want and more!

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful stay we had! This was my families first stay in Hawaii and we had a blast. We first stayed in a place in Waikiki. While that was nice it was very noisy and crowded. It was so refreshing to move away from all the crowds and noise to this very peaceful and charming cottage. We were still 5 minutes away from stores and restaurants but we didn't have to hear fire trucks and motorcycles. The owners are very nice and would e-mail back and forth prior to answer any of the questions we had. They live next door and are willing to assist you with anything you would need. They also respect your privacy and we hardly saw or heard them. The cottage was equipped with anything you could possibly want. They even leave you a few surprises. There is a huge deck that has a couch, TV, a hammock, and hot tub. I loved watching TV from the hot tub at night after a long day of tours. There was even an outdoor shower. They have a fire pit, grill, one person sauna, a shed with beach equipment, a/c (which we didn't need because of the breeze), cable TV and WiFi. There is one bed and then another bed up in a loft. I slept in the loft and I was very comfortable. Everything was very clean and new. I can't wait to plan another vacation. I know where I will be staying.

We loved our stay here! Minutes drive from Hanama Bay combined with luxurious comfort and a beautiful setting. We grilled out on the deck in the evenings and enjoyed the sunsets in the hot tub. Thank you for a great stay! We'll be back!

If you want to stay away from the crowds of Honolulu and Waikiki, enjoy a beautiful view, evening trade winds, a lovely patio, hot tub, and outdoor shower this is the place for you. Our daughter enjoyed staying in the cool loft. The location provided easy access to all areas yet was tucked away from the typical tourist scene. Not far away are a selection of restaurants to enjoy as well as a Costco and grocery store. Everything was clean and new. Highly recommend this property.

2nd year in a row here at this cottage and just as excellent as the first

  • 5 of 5
When my wife and I decided to go back to Oahu, there was no question as to where we would stay. In fact, I checked with the owners first to confirm what dates the cottage was available so as to book our trip around that timeframe.
This cottage is PERFECT for couples. The owners live right next store so if you need anything, they are available but you never see them otherwise. They are wonderful to work with but they completely respect your privacy.
The cottage itself is quite new and has everything you need. The view is to die for. Neither last year's visit nor this year's visit necessitated the use of the a/c though there is one. The cool breezes do the trick, especially since you are on a hill.

You are a 5 minute drive from shopping, restaurants, etc and a 20 minute drive from downtown Honolulu.

This place is perfect and the owners pay attention to every last detail, we'll be back a 3rd time.

Amazing views, nice hideaway, relaxing time, hammock!!

  • 5 of 5
Firstly I want to say my review is a little overdue but very much deserved; it was very easy to work with Mike & Kendra. With long working hours and emails at off hours Mike was able to answer back quickly and take my calls. When we arrived for our 5 night stay we arrived at the cottage, and up the steps, we were wow'd by the amazing views and our own little escape. With family on the island the location was close enough to be 15-20 mins from town/waikiki, but far enough from the hustle. The cottage is just a good 10-15 minutes away from snorkeling at Hanauma Bay and Koko Head hike. Local shopping, markets, and coffee shops very close by made it convenient. The cottage itself had all the amenities you will need and more. The outdoor deck makes for a great relaxing time with views, hot tub, outside TV and seating, and a hammock! Property has laundry and BBQ grill.
Although we did not get to spend as much time as we would have liked at the cottage it was a great place for us to turn in for the night and spend mornings on the deck. And even bigger plus is the ease of working with our hosts! Thank you!

Living la vida aloha!

This is, hands down, the best vacation experience we've had in recent memory. This hidden gem just outside bustling downtown Wikiki and Honolulu provided the perfect retreat oasis to bookend our 10-day vacation. Traveling with kids ages 14 and 5, this cottage is perfect. It was great for early morning soaks in the hot tub while kids joined in or played in the yard, and evening dinners on the bbq with friends who couldn't help but rave about the location, view and amenities. It was a hit with us and local guests. Our hosts were, well, fabulous and kind! We were greeted kindly with a little perk (won't spoil any surprises for new guests). Shopping was easy, breezy with Safeway, Costco and Komo Marina just 5 minutes drive away. Everything you needed to live well is right at your fingertips: linen, dishwear, cooking utensils, laundry facilities, and the outdoor TV was a big plus with hubby who tuned in to NBA play-offs, while the kids and I cuddled to Disney flicks. And, being from Seattle it was nice to have recylcing options too! I this place is a must see, must stay - you will not be disappointed. God willing, we'll be back again very soon. PS: the 44 steps from the private parking to the cottage is workout, so wear flats!
