About The Owner

My family and I have lived on the property for over 30 years. My dad is a retired firefighter, my husband works at the local newspaper and I work at a non-profit community center. Our family also includes our two teenagers, 2 dogs, and tortoise. When we are not working, you can find us at Sandy Beach where we enjoy bodysurfing, picking shells, and playing with our pets. We also enjoy hula, hiking and spending time with our friends and family.

Why The Owner chose Oahu

My grand parents built the ohana cottage when I was born to accommodate their growing family. Now that everyone has grown up and moved out we share the house with visiting family and friends like you who want to experience Hawaii like a local instead of a tourist. Since Honolulu is one of the most expensive places to visit we wanted to offer budget and family friendly accommodation for malahini and kama'aina alike.

What makes this cottage unique

We live below the majestic Koolau mountain range. When it rains heavy here the water falls spill out and line the the entire mountain range from Kahalu'u to Likelike. The windward side is also blessed with beautiful greenery, sandy beaches, scenic drives and a much slower island pace.

Guestbook comments from the owner

TKS again for your house. Our family had a great vacation in Oahu!



The kids say HI to Roxy and Tie and Teddy of course ;-)))

Happy stay

  • 5 of 5

We lived in Ahuimanu Cottage for 4 nights in Oahu during Christmas and New Year vacation. It was a wonderful experiences. The location is not at the busiest west side of the island but it only took about 20~25min drive to wakiki beach. And you got the take a look of the beautiful mountain along the way. The cottage is cozy, clean and has everything you ever need in a vacation house. Val also provides beach towels, chairs and snorkel gears for kids to use which is very convenience for us. There are some steps to take to get to the cottage which is built on a slop; my Dad did need to take precautions on walking on the steps but for the rest of us it has no issues. Overall it is a good stay and if we would come back we would consider staying there again.

Great getaway and stress free

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 stayed for 2 weeks at this wonderful little cottage and it was so nice to feel like we came home at the end of a long, busy day! The dogs were wonderful greeters and my 3 kids just adored them, going out every morning to say hi to them and pet them. One of my kids even asked if we could take them home with us.lol The place was clean, comfortable, and laid back. The area was quiet and I slept so soundly when it rained at night. I woke up every morning feeling like I was in heaven. It was a sad day when we left to the airport to come home. My kids asked if we could just live there forever. Also just be aware, the parking spot is a little awkward next to the driveway of the place. It may feel lopsided, but it's sturdy. Be careful when walking down the driveway when wet. It's Hawaii after all. It didn't bother us though, we were just grateful to have a place to park!

sweet home on the quiet countryside of Oahu

  • 5 of 5

The sweet two bedroom house fits our family nicely and warmly on this thanksgiving. Both bedrooms equipped with TV, queen bed and crib for baby. Large comfortable air bed is provided too. Owners are just steps away for any questions but never come up to interrupt.

No air conditioner needed, and electric fans are definitely helpful. Full kitchen and restrooms.

Beach chairs, snorkel equips and even surf boards are ready and free. Thanks for the accommodation, love Oahu.

Only thing that other reviews suggested already is the steep ramp and stairs up to the room from the parking spot, could be slippery when wet. Thanks,

Enjoyed our stay!

  • 4 of 5

At first it was difficult to find as the cottage is behind the main house on a hill. However, the cottage was perfect for our stay! There was 6 in our party and it was very comfortable for us. All is provided by the owner; from coffee filters to boogie boards! There's a washer & dryer in back which was great. The whole place was clean and neat with everything you'll need for a great stay in O'ahu. Thanks so much for having such a great place for us to stay!
