About Terrie

I have lived in Hawaii all my life and finally got a place near the ocean to enjoy in my Senior years. I spend days here and have a difficult time going back to my city house. I love fishing and swimming and can watch my fishing pole from the living room, however, now I can also enjoy the sound of the waves, the beautiful mornings and lovely sunsets from my little Hale.

Why Terrie chose North Shore Oahu

I have rented house all the way down the shore of Punaluu, Hauula, and Laie. This area was always my favorite because of the excellent beach that is never crowded. To be able to stay in my swim suit all day going into the water, out to cook, into the water, out for a drink and back into the water is the true Hawaiian Lifestyle.

What makes this cottage unique

This little cottage actually is enjoyed by all my family and friends. It is just the right size to entertain or just be an intimate hideaway. The right music at sunset will make for a wonderful memory.

Great oceanfront cottage

  • 4 of 5

Had a great time staying in Terrie's cottage! Being right on the waterfront was great as was the beautiful sunrises every morning. The cottage is small as described but it was just my husband and I, so it was fine. Very cute inside. The area was quiet but yet close to beautiful beaches and things to do. Terrie was very good in answering any questions and concerns we had. All in all, we had a great week.

Aloha Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

5 Stars are not enough for this paradise!

ON THE BEACH! This amazing beach house is everything you could possibly want! Wake up in this cute 1 bedroom cottage on the beach to the smells of gardenias and plumerias as the sound of the waves and rustling palm trees greets your morning.

About the cottage: No need to pack anything but your bathing suit. The cottage is fully stocked with towels, bedding, water toys, snorkel gear, flippers, chairs, onsite BBQ, onsite kayak rental, laundry right outside your door, clean kitchen with all the flatware and silverware you would need. The bed is SO comfortable I had the best night's sleep ever! Safe and quiet neighborhood with friendly locals. Terrie is the MOST gracious hostess and we are already planning our return trip!

Things to do: We woke up every morning and had our coffee on the beach while planning our next adventure filled day. Your own beach right in front of the cottage is all you will need, but if you want more adventure, the cottage is perfectly situated with plenty of beautiful waterfall hikes and amazing snorkeling in every direction. Visit Shark's Cove just up the way or the Polynesian Cultural Center minutes away! Shop and eat at local nearby stores and food trucks and bask in the paradise of Hauula!

Texas, origins in South Dakota and New Jersey

Out of the way beach resort.

  • 3 of 5

Lights from rentals above and directly next door lit up the bedroom making sleep difficult. The cottage was listed for occupancy of 4. There were obviously large groups that stayed there as the cottage was FULL of furnishings.

The lanai was the perfect place to enjoy the ocean. Unfortunately the trade winds were up so surf conditions were dangerous.

Owner's Response: This cottage sleeps only 4 because it is a small cottage and my choice so as not to have the nice things I provide overused. As the pictures show, there is a day bed, two chairs, a loveseat and smaller items for comfort. Each window has a curtain provided to keep out the lights that may be on in surrounding units. (I sleep like a baby especially with the sound of the waves nearby). Sorry I can't control the wind but the waves are not usually big as we are situated in a cove surrounded by reef and most of the time the water is as clear as glass. In Winter the ocean might be a little rougher than usual but never high surf. I am sad to have my first review lower than a 4 1/2 star. Seeing is believing.
