About the property

Picture This! Cottage w ocean view...sensibly priced... a minute from beach

Waimanalo is known for its lush green tropical trees, white sand beach and the Ko'olau Mountains as the backdrop. For this reason many film makers use this neighborhood, and so this property also was featured in the TV series Hawaii Five-O season 5.

We know you will appreciate the value - what you get for the money - when staying in our cottage. You have beautiful surroundings, all the amenities of home and a short minute walk to the beach!

The cottage is a traditional Hawaiian beach cottage which is ideal for 2 adults, however can accommodate up to 4. The bedroom is spacious with a queen bed. For additional guests, the sofa converts to a European designed bed that is not a spring mattress but fold out to a firm foundation for restful sleep.

The cottage is also equipped with washer/dryer, full kitchen with amenities for any meal preparation, and a BBQ grill on patio area.

You also have a designated parking space on a private driveway and plenty of grass yard to enjoy! And when you arrive, you'll find our free Aloha gift awaiting you. Tell us a few things about your food and beverage likes and dislikes, and we'll prepare something with you in mind!

Wonderful and relaxing stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a perfect stay in Waimanalo for our "babymoon". The cottage was comfy and provided everything we needed for our vacation. It was clean and nicely appointed - the full kitchen was great and we loved being able to cook our own meals. We didn't have a car, so John graciously offered to take us to the local grocery store for supplies for our 4 day stay. John and Petra are a lovely couple and so very friendly and full of the aloha spirit. Just a quick walk to the beach was just what the doctor ordered as well, we didn't really bring anything with us to the beach because we were so close to it! Waimanalo is a beautiful beach and not crowded at all. Would definitely come back again for another relaxing stay!

Little bit of paradise...

  • 4 of 5

This smaller cottage is very strategically located...

Not only is it located within steps of a public access to a glorious beach but also close at hand to my family. I had all I needed for a very comfortable stay. The hosts were available, efficient and very hospitable. It is an extremely clean and well cared for property. Thank you to John and Petra.

Absolutely Perfect!!!!

  • 5 of 5

First off the pictures do not do this place justice! The cottage is beautiful and perfectly put together. Everything you could possibly need is there waiting for you. The bed was super comfy. All the towels and bedding you could possibly need. Also a washing machine and dryer with soap at the ready!

The owners Petra & John are so nice and very thoughtful and kind. It truly felt like an honour to be their guests. We were greeted with a beautiful basket including fresh fruit and wine to celebrate our anniversary. They truly are considerate and wonderful people. If we lived locally, I would be happy to have them as our neighbors.

The location could not have been more perfect. Literally 3 minutes walk from our door to the perfect spot on the beach. We walked back and forth to the cottage if we needed to get/do something in a blink. They provide chairs (and now I would think a little cooler) to take to the beach.

Honestly don’t look further, this is a rare and wonderful find. You will not regret a thing.

Lovely time!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay with John and Petra. The location was just a short jaunt to the beach, and the house was well-appointed and cozy. The hosts were a great combination of responsive while respecting our privacy and allowing us to enjoy our getaway. We would highly recommend this house for anyone looking for a peaceful and relaxing trip!

cozy cottage in paradise

  • 4 of 5

We spent 10 days here in early Dec, and it worked out perfectly for us. We did a lot of cooking in and that worked out just fine. Kailua isn't far but the traffic is busy, and that is where the restaurants are.There are a couple of " plate lunch" places and we walked to one ( they are all in the same area) in under 15 minutes. You can hear the ocean at night and it is a very close walk, with chairs and umbrella that are provided. That beach is beautiful! We played tennis at the local courts, just a mile and a half away. They aren't pretty but they are free and no waiting at the different times we went. I recommend a bike tour with Pedego bikes in Kailua. A good way to see the town and get the lay of the land. This is my 10th visit to Hawaii , and have avoided Oahu, except on layovers to see Pearl Harbor and I was pleasantly surprised.
