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

THE best place to stay
The photos don't do justice for the cottage. I went with my 6 yr old daughter and it was perfect for us. It is equipped with anything you might need and the ocean is just feet away. We would sleep with the windows open listening to the waves crash, it was magical! We went around the island and this side was definitely the most beautiful part and not too packed with tourists. Staying here was a great way to get the real feel of Hawaii. I cannot wait to be back. Mahalo!
We are always so happy to hear that your visit was great and that you found the magic and the feel of Hawaii. You are welcome back any time. Aloha.
It’s so great to be right on the beach. When the sun is shining. It doesn’t get better than that. Had the best time!! Will be back again :):)
So glad you enjoyed your stay! We will look forward to your return. Aloha.
Quiet and beautiful location - Great Beach!
We stayed at this property from February 21 - 27 and used it as home base to explore as much of Oahu as we could. We are a family of four with two young children (6 & 2). The futons worked perfect for our kids who fell asleep to the crashing waves nightly (as did we).
The unit and the building had everything we needed to get by for the week. We used the laundry facilities below the unit several times, there was a little gym and small pool on the property as well. It gets pretty dark at night (on the beach side of the units) but I brought a flashlight for just this reason. At night, we walked the beach with the flashlight and watched the crabs scurry all over the place. The kids loved this. Apparently the turtles come onto this beach but not very often. There are better places for turtle viewing but we didn't hit any of the hot spots. Every once in a while you'll see one poke it's head out of the ocean.
We got groceries before leaving Oahu. There are some smaller grocery stores not far from the property but the prices are higher and the selection is more limited, which you would expect. The reason we chose this property was to be in more of a rural setting. The island is not that large so getting anywhere from here is easy. The north shore is a short drive and we found the weather to be much better there. It was great to watch the huge waves come rolling in and the surfers trying to conquer them.
The weather did not cooperate so our beach days were limited but we got out every chance we could. If it rained, we went to other parts of the island to escape it. The places we went were the Dole Pineapple farm, the zoo and aquarium in Waikiki, Pearl Harbour, and we checked out the Polynesian Centre up the highway. Pearl Harbour was really great but plan to be there for the day or do as we did and visit one or two exhibits. We went to the Missouri and the kids loved it.
We would definitely recommend the suite for a small family. It's not a huge place but it serves its purpose well. I would say we got exactly what we expected. There were no hiccups with finding or getting into the place. We would definitely consider going again. Mahalo for sharing your paradise with us!

We are so glad you found the cottage enjoyable both during the day and the nights. And yes you are right, it is easy to explore other island attractions from our location in the country. You are welcome back any time. Mahalo and Aloha.
Pros- location, privacy, clean, full kitchen, views and beach access. Cons- uncomfortable bed, we are not large people but bed sunk in the middle.
We are glad you found the cottage and location to be great. We will check into your note about the bed the bed and see how we can improve.
❤️every minute of our stay.
Stayed from 1/8/18-1/31/18 and not one minute of regret. Falling asleep and waking to the waves crashing was beyond anyone’s expectations. Fully equipped studio was the perfect size for us (2). Will definitely return!
We are so happy that you found the magic and enjoyment in our beach cottage. Aloha and E Komo Mai
Great jem away from the hustle & bustle of the city!
We stayed in Waikiki for 5 days then went to Likas paradise for 5 days and it was so nice to get away from the city and stay somewhere that was really quiet but offered such beautiful views of the ocean and mountains. We loved falling asleep to the crashing waves every night and the wonderful breezes were plenty to keep cool. Definitely try 'Aloha Shrimp" right down the street- my husband &I tried at least 3-4 different trucks and this one was the best! Loved Likas Paradise- you have everything you need and we didn't have any issues while we were there! They provided all the info and things we needed! Mahalo!
Mahalo, we are so glad you enjoyed the magic of Punalu'u. You are welcome back anytime.
