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.

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

For my husband and I it was home away from home.

The cottage had everything we needed and more.

We felt entirely comfortable during our entire stay.

We listened to the distant roar of the ocean on the reef.

We listened to the waves gently lapping on the sand.

We listened to the rustling of the coconut fronds in the warm trade winds.

We watched the the plumeria float gently to the green grass.

We watched the sunrise directly out in front every day.

We watched the full moon shine across the ocean.

We sat in the sunshine on loungers on the grass.

We sat under the shade of the cottage lanai.

We swam in the warm ocean twice a day.

We L O V E D every moment of our home away from home.

A hui hou malama pono.

Felt at home. Very close to Polynesian Cultural Center

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for something on the beach and away from the go go go of Honolulu. This was a great place to stay. Terrie made us feel right at home. This is not in the big condo complex, it is one of the only bungalow's that has a lanai that faces the water. It was so laid back and relaxing we would definitely stay again. The Polynesian Cultural Center is just 10 min away. Great loction and a great host.

Terrie, your cottage is amazing! We enjoyed our week there so much - steps to the beach and the sound of the waves at night - I was so sad to leave. The cottage has everything you could want, fully stocked with kitchen equipment, nice furnishings, super fast wifi for those of us techy geeks. We barbecued, snorkeled, sat in the sun, walked on the beach, cooked Mother's Day brunch. We enjoyed the lanai from sunup to sundown every day - my favorite new outdoor living space rain or shine. I've visited Oahu many many times and finally found the cottage that I want to visit again and again. Thanks so much for your hospitality. We'll be back again very soon.

This cottage deserves greater than 5 stars!!

  • 5 of 5


We can't thank you enough for allowing us into your beautiful cottage. Everything was absolutely just perfect & we had the greatest time. From the moment we stepped foot inside the door, we knew we found exactly what we had been hoping for. It was spotlessly clean, very well maintained and fully equipped with all the essential necessities. We were even so appreciative to be able to utilize the outdoor beach goodies & snorkel gear. We also thank you for the fishing guidance. How fun to be able to do your own fishing without having to drive anywhere. When we weren't enjoying our time on the beach or exploring the island, we took advantage of quiet dinner evenings on the lanai relaxing and listening to the ocean. (For those that are looking for a loud, party/nightlife atmosphere, this is not the place for you. This location is truly serene, quiet, peaceful and very easy to get lost in relaxation) Not only was this affordable, it was every bit of paradise we could have hoped for. Again, thank you so much for our wonderful stay. We are already preparing for our next stay with you on our vacation next summer.

All our best,

Chris & Jaime Brade

P.S. Chris says to try the Aloha Shrimp truck across the street. It was delicious!!

Verry nice, peacefull

  • 5 of 5

Hi Terrie,

Thank you so much for letting us rent your cottage, it is a really nice place and at a perfect location. So peaceful compared to most of the Island. The sunrises every morning were beautiful, we walked the empty beach with coffee every morning just before sunrise.

I wish we would have booked for a longer vacation, we didn't want to leave. We got to do a lot on the Island, more than I thought we could. We kayaked to the flat Island bird sanctuary and stopped at most of the beaches from Waikiki to Waimea bay, going by way of the windward side and up around north shore. We did some hiking, got half way up "crouching lion", and walked thru Waimea Valley to the waterfall. Did some snorkeling (for a first time ever) at your area, and down near Halewea and even had a turtle come up to us. The waves at North Shore were awesome on Sunday, I got some good videos there. And before we left on Monday, we went to Pali lookout, Wow!

Again, thank you so much, that is truely "Paradise"


Rick and LizAnne


Ps.. Sorry about the miss communication for the keys and parking.

Cozy and Quiet

  • 4 of 5

We were looking for a place that was quiet and away from the crowds. Her place meet our expectations for this. It is right on the ocean close to hear the waves "crashing" which made it easy to sit and sleep. The beach right outside your door is sandy and convenient. If you are looking for local flavor it has it with food trucks and small local places to eat near by. If you are looking for a place to unwind this is your spot.

We loved the Aloha Shrimp Truck just down the road.

This little piece of heaven is located right on A beautiful piece of property and the best beach for swimming and snorkeling. It is calm and private. Almost every morning you could see a large turtles relaxing in the sand or swimming nearby. The turtles let you swim close to them calmly. The cottage is completely furnished for all your needs while you're on vacation. We start you with a2roll supply of toilet tissue and 1 paper towel roll. Once you visit and stay here you want to return many times. The location is perfect for a small wedding on the beach. Plus we are a wedding company and can coordinate everything for you, including flowers What we don't offer above we can probably acquire for you no problem. If your wedding party needs another accommodation, we can coordinate with other owners on the property. There are no stairs, therefore easy for wheelchair accessibility. Can't express enough how lovely this location is. '
