About the property

Studio Bedroom,1 Bathroom Sleeps 4

This beach cottage is one of a kind. It is so calming to just sit there and watch the ocean which is only steps away. Turtles frequently swim nearby for your enjoyment.

All amenities are there in the cottage and on the property. The only thing you will need are groceries which can be bought on the way or 2 miles past the cottage at Tamuras Market. This is a vacation spot of a lifetime to remember.

About Lisa or Terrie

Being Raised on Oahu and now living in Oklahoma, this cottage will bring me home. It is like stepping back in time to be there watching the turtles and whales through the window in my living room. I come to relax and float in the clear, glass like, ocean which is just steps away. One must see to believe and experience to know.

Lisa or Terrie purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Lisa or Terrie chose North Shore Oahu

Perfect to get away from the hussle an bustle of Waikiki. Once you visit Waikiki it is perfect to drive back to Old Hawaii.

What makes this cottage unique

You get a well stocked, better view, equipped beach cottage equal to any hotel but as a lesser cost.

Perfect location, literally steps from the beach. Room is clean.

  • 5 of 5

I love this cottage, the view is amazing. I didn't have to pack amd drive to the beach, the beach was literally 30 steps from the door. Love the sounds of the waves at night. The location is perfect, close to north shore, haleiwa and many more beaches. It is so calming to be here, away from all the city noise and traffic. Yet only 25mins from the city of Kaneohe. Our room A4 has the perfect view, large windows facing the window with no obstructed view (no big palm trees swaying in front of us). My friend has already asked for the address to this place. We all love that the beach us right there, like our own private beach because there is no public beach access so it's very clean and peaceful. And the price is amazing compared to those high towers that charge outrageous price for a view like this

this is the perfect location to see the real Oahu

  • 5 of 5

beautiful place in Punaluu! You can role out of your bed right onto the beach. I saw about a dozen sea turtles and snorkeled with a ton of fish! the reefs are right out there, easy swimming distance. behind you is a killer view of the mountains.The place is clean and has all that you need. Dont buy anything but food and maybe charcoal (they had it but we grill alot).. if you like to be away from the hustle this is the place. and your only about 50 minutes from Honolulu and Waikiki. and the 50 minutes goes by fast cause the drive is insanely beautiful. well worth it to be out of Honolulu and see the real Oahu. the place has no air conditioning but you do not need it. the breeze off the ocean is perfect at night.

If you stay here you will see more of Hawaii than other tourists. In fact you will feel like a local! Which when i travel i want to feel like. its 10 minutes away from the Polynesian Culture Center, which is a must.. Close to hiking, waterfalls, Sharks cove (ridiculous sunset and food trucks! cant pass up!), Banzai pipeline, Kaneoha Bay, etc. its worth people to find out themselves and explore from here! great place, great location. Mahalo!

Owner's Response: Sounds like you did find the magic of the beach cottage and "old" Hawaii! The cottage is perfect for either relaxing and enjoying your almost private beach or allowing you to explore the island on your own. And yes grilling out with the ocean as your back drop is a perfect way to end your day. We are so glad that you truly enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

Enjoyed the cottage. Loved having the ocean lull us to sleep and wake us in the morning. The accommodations were very comfortable. It was nice having a fully stocked kitchen to be able to use and cook a few meals during our stay. We even used the outdoor grill one day and enjoyed cooking while almost on the beach. We were looking for peace and quiet and this place was perfect. Yet we were close enough to grocery stores and a few restaurants just up the road.

Cute but not worth the price

  • 3 of 5

very small property, we got there late at night to find a thumb size cock roach near our bed, there were ants on floor, counter & table, we didn't even eat in there we ate out, only showered & slept. could not watch movies @ night, down stairs people complained. it did have a nice view & shower head was great, but way too small for honeymooners..probably would not stay there again, too small.

Owner's Response: Living in the tropics and Hawaii does bring one to paradise. But the other side of paradise is that we do have to constantly be vigilant for insects and pests. This is one of the reasons we pay Terminex, an exterminator a monthly contract fee for them to help us stay ahead of the possible bugs that may try to share our hale's with us. In addition to their service we also keep insect traps and sprays under the sinks for use just in case a stray bug appears or if the ants find their way inside. Our housekeeper is very good at keeping these supplies and others stocked and ready for use if need be. And yes the cottage is cozy, like many studio properties in Hawaii. Its size of 550 sq ft is clearly listed in the description of the amenities. And cost comparison of studio/one bedrooms with direct semi private beach access make this cottage a rare commodity and a return to old Hawaii.
