This was the most amazing property right on Malaekahana beach. I can’t thank Linda and Ivan enough. Absolutely everything you could possibly want was available at the property and they were more than welcoming and accommodating. They welcomed our friends over to play volleyball and had absolutely everything we could have wanted on the beach and in the waves. We will definitely return and recommend their property to all our friends and family.
Location was unreal. The house was amazing with everything imaginable. Linda and Ivan were incredibly nice, and extremely hospitable. We will definitely be coming back!
This cottage was perfect in every way. Everything is new, fresh and clean. It seems bigger in person than in the pictures. All of the beds were very comfortable. The bath and beach towels are plush and seemed brand new. It was super helpful to have shampoo, conditioner, body wash, laundry detergent, dish detergent, etc provided. We cooked breakfast and dinner every day and the kitchen was well stocked. In addition to the boogie boards, beach chairs and towels (which are all in brand new condition) we enjoyed having access to kayaks, surf boards, spike ball, hammock, football, volleyball, etc. This house literally has everything you would need. We also enjoyed walks down the beach...there are swings in the trees at the beach park to the left (maybe a mile away) that made for beautiful sunrise pictures. The location was ideal. It was around a 12 minute drive to Ted’s Bakery and 15 minute drive to Shark’s Cove/Waimea Bay jumping rock. The Foodland directly across from Shark’s Cove sells beer/wine/liquor. There is also a Foodland in Laie, a 2 minute drive from the house. The food trucks are also a 2 minute drive. Our family (15 & 13 year old daughters) enjoyed many hikes using the ALLTRAILS APP and Oahu Revealed book....Ehukai Pillbox (Park at Sunset Beach Elementary School), Crouching Lion (steep climb!), Kane’ohe Bay Pillbox, Makapu’u Head (paved trail). We loved the Spitting Cave of Portlock, Lana’i Lookout (cross the road, jump the guard rail, climb down the ravine and walk through a tunnel under the road and you’ll have the best view), Halona Cove (From Here to Eternity) Lanikai Beach, Kailua Beach, Pounders Beach in Laie, Sunset Beach, Pipeline, Three Tables & Waimea Bay Beach. We rented a huge (6 person) Pau Hana paddle board at the rental shop across from Shark’s Cove and paddled that to Waimea Bay...so much fun! We also hiked Diamond Head, but that was our least favorite (crowded, even at sunrise). The owners live in the main house, above the rental cottage, but we hardly saw or heard them, it was essentially like having the property to ourselves...but nice to know someone would be available if we needed anything. Five Stars was the max Home Away would let me give...I wish I could somehow indicate that this house goes beyond the 5 Star limit. This was the best vacation ever...thank you for sharing your slice of heaven, Linda and Ivan! We enjoyed meeting you!
Thank you Linda and Ivan for making my milestone birthday one I will never forget. Your property & hospitality made us feel like we had been living there for years. So clean, comfortable, and fully equipped (love the soft robes & towels). The fact that I got up every morning to see the sunrise on my vacation speaks for itself, I wanted to make the most of every minute at your place. Lastly, thank you for sharing your friends & family with us for my (and Ivan's) birthdays! Don't change a thing! Please reach out when you are in AZ. We are glad to have made new friends! (that includes Muffin, the frogs and chickens!) Holding on the memories! Can't wait to come back.

Perfect property and getaway for our family with little kids. Great beach and location. Linda and Ivan were extremely accommodating! Will definitely return. Mahalo!
The perfect getaway!
One week wasn’t long enough to enjoy this beautiful little spot on Oahu.
The cottage is wonderfully appointed with everything a traveling family needs: scuba masks, boogie boards, beach towels, shower needs, and a full kitchen with pots/pans, utensils, some spices, etc. Everything you need to cook and grill out.
The home is immaculate and all the beds were very comfortable. Air conditioning kept us cool although the ocean breeze did most of the work. We loved hearing the ocean waves 24/7. We spent our days relaxing at the house and exploring Oahu. On those days we were always thrilled to head back to the cottage as we loved the north shore vibe.
We loved the wildlife and seeing sea turtles right in front of the house and peacocks in the yard every day. What an oasis!
We had planned to visit the ‘best beaches on Oahu’ while we were there but found no need to as we had an amazing beach out our front door. A sandy swimming is a couple houses to the right and we had water shoes for the rocks on the ocean floor. We took daily walks down the beach and had fun watching the crabs dig themselves into the sand when they saw people approaching.
Thank you for so much for sharing your beautiful home! I can’t wait to recommend this cottage to friends who travel to Oahu!
