About the property

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (1 outdoor shower with toilet) sleeps 4

This cozy little beach side cottage, is located across the street from the beautiful beach in Hauula, which is on the Windward coast of Oahu. The cottage is reminiscent of old Hawaii. Originally built in 1946, the cottage was renovated in 2006. It is a little slice of paradise with great views of the mountains out back and the ocean in front.

The beach right across the street is great for swimming--the water is clear and calm. The large yard is great for playing, and there is a patio in the back for barbecuing. You can sit on the front porch and watch the sunrise and the ocean. Or you can hang out under the plumeria tree in the yard and relax. The living room and the back bedroom have an air conditioners and there are three ceiling fans. We also have a whole house fan! Check out the comments in our reviews!

There is also a great outdoor shower and toilet area. Two boogie boards, snorkels and masks are provided as well as everything you would need to kick back and have a great stay in this very special place filled with aloha. There are lots of children's floats, buckets and shovels.

Feel the Aloha of Old Hawaii: Our cottage is a slice of the past with all of the modern conveniences. We have some restored authentic furniture with monkeypod tables and rattan sofa and chair.

There are several books about Hawaii as well as visitor guidebooks.

Our family beach cottage.: This cottage has been in our family since the 1960's. It was built in 1946 and has been renovated twice--most recently in 2006. Our children and now our grandchildren enjoy spending time here. There's lots of room in the large yard to play and the beach is right across the street. The street is Kamehameha Highway, the highway that goes almost around the island of Oahu. The beautiful mountains can be seen from the back of the cottage.

Cozy. quaint cottage with a great view

  • 4 of 5

This home made our first trip to the Hawaiian islands enjoyable. We loved the north shore and all the great beaches, snorkeling and surfing within 30 Min of this home. It was great to come home to the cottage with a great front porch to have a drink and listen to the waves. It was perfect for our family of 4 and we would definitely rent again. The home had everything you need as if it was your own. I loved that it was like stepping back into old Hawaii of the 60s and 70s in this cottage. Thank you for opening your home to us!

Steps from the Ocean

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the beautiful cottage near the ocean with 4 adults and had a wonderful time. Upon arriving to the cottage there were chocolates waiting and the next day Dianne called to make sure we made it in and everything was ok. Over the 10 days we stayed at the cottage we found it extremely relaxing. We even received a phone call letting us know that the exterminator would be arriving and though we didn’t need to be at the house it was very nice to know that someone was on the property.


Almost anything you desire is in the place. We found the heating pad a pleasant surprise when my husband strained his back.

Open layout made the house feel bigger

Outdoor bathroom-we are fans of an outdoor shower but with 4 adults having an additional bathroom came in handy.

Clothes line to hang wet bathing suits

Coffee pot a must in our opinion

Air conditioner in one bedroom and the living room. Whole house fan system and ceiling fans help keep the house cool and comfortable.

Sunrises with coffee on the front porch while looking at the ocean

Ocean is across the street. When it is calm there is great snorkeling and many fish to see.

Papa O’les Kitchen. Great food (especially cheeseburger’s) fantastic prices.

The keys for the house also come with discount cards for Long drugs and the local grocery store. That was a pleasant surprise and we used them to save some money while staying there.

The street in front of the house is busy, but it is set back from the road so it is more insulated then most. We didn’t find it to be a problem.

We can’t wait to come back and stay next year!!!

Perfect Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. 2 adults and 2 teens (13G, 16B). We brought our own air mattress but there is one supplied already so our son slept on that in the living room and it worked out well. During the day we opened the windows and used the whole house fan and the 2 air conditioners worked well to keep us cool at night. Surprisingly the outdoor bathroom was a hit and got a lot of use.

The cottage really has EVERYTHING! All your paper products, garbage bags, reusable bags. Bath stocked with shampoo, soap, conditioner, etc. Kitchen had sugar, spices, condiments, gadgets galore, really all those things you miss from home but don't really want to buy or have to buy in such large quantities you'll never use them all. For the beach, towels, snorkeling, boogie boards, fishing pole! My daughter loved sitting in the tree and reading her book. The kids had a great time playing paddle ball in the yard. The yard is HUGE, perfect for little kids or big kids to play catch, paddle, soccer, baseball, you name it. My husband and I would sit under the palms and watch the antics. The beach right in front is a little rocky but a 1 minute walk north gives nice sand and waves. The highway in front is busy but very doable and did not impact our stay or enjoyment. Close to several markets for food and food trucks. Perfect area for seeing Kualoa, the Polynesian Culture Center, North Shore and more. Great hike up the mountains behind the cottage on the Ma'akua trail - moderately hard at times but shaded, great views and only 5 minutes away - beats some of the more well known hikes much further away! Our stay at the cottage was a great way to get a real feel for the Island and culture. We went to Aulani after and it was little over whelming at first after the quiet of the cottage. Highly recommend a stay here!

We had a wonderful time staying at this cozy cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at this cozy cottage!

It was clean and comfortable and a perfect amount of space for me, my husband and our 2 year old.

It was so nice to have a yard and a BBQ!

The house is well stocked with anything you might need for a great time at the beach.

Dianne really thought of everything!

The house it set back off the highway and feels very private.

There is an amazing breeze every evening that sweeps through the house. It keeps everything cool and it feels amazing! It was so lovely in the morning and in the evening to watch the sun rise and set, spend some time in the yard with our toddler running around.

It is not really in walking distance to anything. You really must have a car rental.

The shrimp trucks 15 min North are AMAZING!

Both Dianne and her house manager were so helpful and accommodating!

Both are very responsive and just lovely people!

We had such a lovely and relaxing time that if we come back to Oahu, we will most definitely stay again!
