Beautiful ocean views surround you in these romantic cottages on a secluded, white, sandy beach. Relax in comfort on your lanai (patio) and listen to the waves gently breaking on a distant reef. Sunrises and moonrises on the ocean's horizon will surprise and amaze you. These cozy 500 sq. ft. beachfront cottages have a spacious feeling, fully equipped kitchens, washers and dryers, Flat-screen TVs, and lots of beach toys and equipment. Parking and wifi are included.
Swimming, relaxing on the lanai, BBQs and walking on the beach and are my favorite things to do here; but there are great tourist attractions nearby to enjoy too. The Polynesian Cultural Center is 5 miles north, the Turtle Bay Resort is 10 miles north, followed by 7 miles of the world's most famous surfing beaches and the historic surfing town of Haleiwa. Pack lightly, all you will need are a few clothes, your favorite food and drink items and you won't want to leave once you get here! (See photos for Cottage A and Cottage R and choose which beachfront cottage you prefer when requesting a booking.)
City life in Honolulu can be hectic, so I retreat to these cottages in the country for fun and relaxation. I live and work in Honolulu, but originally came from California, then lived on Kauai and Maui, before finally moving to Oahu. I love island living, and when traveling, I like to visit other islands. I'm a teacher, like to travel during vacations, and would be willing to trade time in my vacation cottage, in exchange for time in your vacation home, depending on the destination.
Karon Hansen purchased this condo in 1990
I've been coming to these beachfront cottages for 20+ years, and stay often to relax and enjoy the beach. I fell in love with these cottages the moment I saw them because they are only 45 minutes from Honolulu; in a quiet, tropical setting and on a wonderful, safe beach for children. Since then, this place has become my 'secret getaway' with its semi-secluded location, white sandy beach, and warm tropical waters. Many wedding proposals, and small intimate wedding take place at this location. The homeowners and guests are friendly and many homeowners have owned their apartments for many happy years. The location is truly a secret spot, and you'll feel like time stops when you're here.
If you have a busy life and want to get back to basics and nature, with modern amenities, but without the hassles of camping--this is the place. If you want to experience a stress-free island lifestyle--this is the place. If you've always dreamed of living on your own beach--this is the place. If you want the benefits of a big metropolitan city and live in the country at the same time--this is the place. Everything has been well thought out for your enjoyment--you'll have an outdoor beach shower, beach chairs and towels, BBQ, boogie boards, snorkeling equipment, and peace of mind.
I think the WiFi info was not correct. Not worked as per instructions. And they differed per owner email and from Home Away.Get a kcup machine, include alot of bottled water. Fresh Flowers on table.It met our needs for a honeymoon and despite being dated all said did not detract from our stay. Would stay again here,absolutely. Beautiful view, semi private beach,right outside the back. Really amazing. A lot for a little.
My wife and I really enjoyed staying in our cottage on the North Shore! It was very quite and relaxing away from all the tourist. Right on the beach too which was an awesome view and it was like a private beach to ourselves. We recommend this place to couples or even families.
Amazing location! The cottage was very comfortable and had everything we needed.
Shopping close by, as well as the spectacular beach. Would not hesitate to come back
Very cozy Oceanfront condo. We stayed in the R cottage for a week and really enjoyed it. There was everything going we needed in it and Karon was very responsive to the questions we had and gave great suggestions on food in the area and activities. Even though this is part of a large condo complex we felt it was quite private and very relaxing. It was fantastic to lay in bed and watch TV while you stare out at the ocean. We listened to the waves all night long and just had an all around great time. We would definitely stay again
My husband and I spent a wonderful week in this clean, cute cottage. They are situated on a lovely beach. I got up every morning and did yoga on the grass lawn, overlooking the ocean, watching the sun come up. We snorkeled right off the beach, and I even ran into a turtle! There were not many other people staying there when we were, so we often had the beach all to ourselves. The buildings are definitely sea worn, and will need updating, but they are clean and cute and none of this affected our enjoyment. Located near shopping, and lots of great food options. Would definitely stay here again. Great location, great price.
We had a fairly unfortunate experience. Expecting that I would receive details prior to our arrival on Oahu, nothing was sent and we were unable to contact the owner. We were pretty much stranded with our 1 year old daughter during a massive rain storm on the windward side of the island at night trying to access a condo. According to the host she sent the information but used her private email instead of the website (Homeaway) which unfortunately went into my junk folder never to be seen. We spent our first evening navigating through home away's customer service sitting in the car charging the cell with spotty cell service and a one year old child crying in the back seat. Homeway's customer service was prompt and after a few hours they were able to get us into the condo. Once in, we had no direction. The internet and tv didn't work and no information about the laundry, pool, garbage and so on. Homeaway informed us to contact the owner of the property to manage the situation but our contact (Karon) was not answering the phone and so we asked to be placed into a similar condo but Homeaway could only offer us a shared room in a house a couple miles away which was unacceptable.
As for the owner of the studio she contacted us a few days later and put us up in a similar studio in the same complex. She promised us a refund for the nights without internet/tv but we have yet to hear anything. The place is situated in a beautiful spot with gorgeous views of the ocean. The condo is a little rickety but quaint and charming. Beware of the giant cockroaches run around on the floor at night.
Great location for families, couples, and retirees who want to relax and spend time on a semi-secluded beach. Best features are: relaxing atmosphere, lovely beach, beautiful sunrises and moon rises over the water, and romantic starry nights. Time seems to stop here and you get the feeling that you've gone back in time to what Hawaii must have been like 50 years ago, and one recent guest wrote that if they could go back in time, they would want to live here!' There are plenty of things to see and do, onsite and nearby, and you are only 10 miles away from world famous surfing beaches, two 1st class golf courses, and the historic town of Haleiwa.
