Walk to Beach from Our Quiet Garden Cottage at Sunset Beach, set in a fenced in green tropical landscaped yard, great for a couple. Walk to Backyards, Sunset, V-land and Pipeline. No smoking. Some of the unique things about our property is the quiet setting, the enclosed yard, and close proximity to the 'seven mile miracle's beautiful beaches; our property provides a real North Shore feel.
Sunset Beach and Unique Benefits of this Cottage : We bought our property as our home, living in the main house and use to long term the cottage but we like the flexibility that short term renting provides so we decided to switch over. I think one of the unique things about our property is the quiet setting, the enclosed yard, and close proximity to the 'seven mile miracle' beautiful beaches; our property provides a real North Shore feel.
Disclaimer: The North Shore is considered the country because of it's laid back, small town vibe. There is only one hotel within miles of the cottage and while there are many nature loving activities to do around here, we are not known for our fantastic dining or shopping options on this side of the island. Also, it is important to remember that this is a tropical climate, being such, there are tropical creatures. I have many guess surprised by the geckos, which are a part of every house in Hawaii unless large amounts of poisons are sprayed monthly. Considering poisons are toxic to people and the environment and geckos are not, I choose, as most people who live here, to live in peace with the geckos. So, if you think you will not be able to coexist with the geckos you should probably book yourself a hotel. If you are not up to being surrounded by the simplicity of nature, a hotel in Waikiki might be a better option for you.
We began renting this home in 1997 and purchased the property in 2003. This is the home that we brought both of our children home from the hospital and raised them as small children.
Dali Pyzel purchased this cottage in 2003
We really enjoyed staying at Dali's place. The cottage was very comfortable and well set out with everything you would need. The lanai looking out onto the garden was a great place to read a book when it rained or drink a beer after a day in the water. We appreciated the use of the bikes and snorkel gear and Dali was really helpful and responsive to any question we asked.
the studio was all that we hoped for. It was very relaxing sitting on the porch in the afternoons after a swim at the nearby beaches. Dali was really helpful and easy to speak with.
No air cond is not usually an issue but this little hot box was about 20 degrees warmer than outside - no cross flow ventilation as the fly screen to the front door was ripped and inoperable. 'Host' didn't provide any check in details apart from address. We arrived and just let ourselves in! I called owner but she didn't bother ringing back. No welcome note or anything! Property was ok but not very clean and lacked maintenance (some lights not working, remote for tv not working, dodgy gas hot plates, lots of minor issues) - photos are not what you get on arrival, they are about 6 years old. Took at least half hour to find kitchen light switch(under bench top). Bathroom Windows hadn't been cleaned for years ( had moss growing on them). Tenants in neighbouring house complained at 11pm of our very quiet music (we had to turn it off) on a friday night, then the following night they were very loud till about 1am! Lucky we found nearby private access to a great beach which was the highlight of our stay. Ok for the price, but disappointed with owners attitude and approach to guests.
My love and I found ourselves completely within the beauties of this amazing cottage! The porch was our sanctuary, the kitchen our morning ritual, and the beach across the street our heaven! Such an authentic experience staying in the residential neighborhood of Oahu. We felt 100% safe and loved the privacy of our temporary love nest! :-) Would recommend to any couple who wants to enjoy a romantic getaway. When we return to Oahu, hopefully this little gem will still be an option for our reunion to the island.
Perfect tranquil & cute cottage! Has everything we needed with plenty of room. Quiet neighborhood perfect for relaxing and close to everything. Had fun riding bikes and snorkeling with the gear provided. Thanks Dali! Hope to be back soon!
We loved our stay at this gorgeous little beach cottage. The gardens were beautiful and the house was well equip with everything we needed to enjoy our 3 night stay. Close to the beach and grocery store. We actually wanted to move in permanently! Thanks for a wonderful stay! We loved our holiday and your house!! - Kate and Tom, Australia
