Was a wonderful cottage and a beautiful beachfront.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is perfect for 3 people.

It has a beautiful beachfront.

Our grandson snorked with the sea turtles, fish and many other sea creatures.

Weather was wonderful.

Can't say enough about a wonderful trip.

Thank you, Hennreita.

Phenomenal views and access to beach!

  • 4 of 5

We absolutely loved the cottage. It had everything we needed, was fully stocked, and was right on the beach! If you're considering this property, book it. You will have a panoramic view of the ocean and only be a few steps away from a mostly private beach. The water in front of the cottage is a little rocky but if you go down a bit and swim in the waters in front of the condominiums, it's sandy and perfect. The water was always calm enough even for my 4 year old, and it stays shallow for several feet. The only drawback of this unit is that it has no air conditioning. We had to run 5 box fans with all windows open, which often still wasn't enough. However, it was worth it just for the sheer location and view!

quaint and quiet

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was a very nice change from downtown Honolulu. The beach was beautiful and coral washed up every morning. A sea turtle nested on our beach and it was not crowded at all. The cottage was a little small and needed some updates but overall it was perfect for our party of three to relax and vacation. The one issue we ran into were there weren't many places around to eat that stayed open late but as long as you planned, it worked. The sunrises were amazing. A beautiful place and very nice vacation.

A Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We lived in Wahiawa 25 years ago, and this was our first time back. We wanted the beauty and quiet away from downtown, and we were not disappointed. Mrs. Loo was so easy to work with. The cottage was just want we wanted. And the views were incredible. Walking on the beach one night, we say two sea turtles that had come ashore. There were several people that fished from the shore each day and snorkeled in front of the cottage. The views were amazing. The cottage was close enough to restaurants and conveniences, but not TOO close :) We did go to Waikiki one night, but to me this is the real Hawaii. The cottage, the view, hearing the ocean from the cottage ~ soothes the soul. Mahalo Mrs. Loo for sharing your Piece of Paradise.

**It should be noted that there is no air conditioning in the cottage. There are screens so you are able to open the windows. The winds blow constantly, and there are fans in the unit. We weren't expecting a/c, so this wasn't a problem for us.
