Views & Tradewinds at Cozy Cottage on a Hill, Minutes to World's 'Best Beaches'

Get a great deal in the best beachside town of Kailua when basic single room rates in Waikiki are up to $350/night!

The panoramic views of Kailua town and Enchanted Lake are amazing every time you step outside onto the wraparound lanai or look out its large windows. The cottage is clean, bright and airy, lit by skylights, and cooled from trade winds. Relax and enjoy your vacation in our quiet neighborhood away from all the hustle and bustle of Waikiki for a much better value driven price!

Built in 2002, this standard 2 bedroom, 2 bath cottage has approximately 1400 sq. ft. of cozy indoor and airy outdoor living spaces, furnished with elegant elephant bamboo furniture (a renewable resource), and energy efficient appliances, e.g. refrigerator, dishwasher, washer and dryer. You can use the electric stove in the kitchen, or use the stainless steel grill on the lanai for cooking.

***Please note*** The cottage is accessible only by stairs. The stairs start with 5 steps that lead to a 30 ft. landing, 4 steps that lead to a 10 ft. landing, then 12 steps that lead to the house.

Master bedroom has a king bed and en suite bathroom with jetted tub, television, ceiling fans, a/c, and a sky light.

Guest bedroom has a king bed and 2 twin beds; flat screen t.v., ceiling fans and a/c.

The dining table seats 6 comfortably with 2 seats at the breakfast bar.

The large lanai has two high dining table that seats 8 to relax and enjoy the views, and a stainless steel gas grill for you to enjoy outdoor meals.

We are strict about the 6 person maximum capacity of the house. This number includes toddlers and young children. If you have 7-8 people in your party, we recommend you rent the Studio as a 3rd bedroom option.

There is a large blue tiled turtle pool with a slide for the adventurous.

There are lots linens, bath and beach towels available.

The cottage is completely separated from the owner-occupied main house, located on the same property. The owners have two friendly black-lab mix dogs who are 8 years old that reside poolside by the main house. The dogs are gated in the pool patio area and are not allowed to access the guest house grounds.

Since we have our own 9 year old, we are family friendly with infants, toddlers, and children; we try to stock the cottage with amenities to make your stay safe, comfortable and fun.

The property is located about 2-3 miles from Conde Nast's rated three 'Best Beaches' in the world, Kailua, Lanikai, and Waimanalo Beaches. Kailua is famous for its water sports and we can recommend places to purchase or rent the toys to help you stay in the water, like surfboards, kayaks, windsurfers, masks and snorkels,and kitesurfing gear available. Let us know how we can make your vacation the best ever!

Excellent family rental, very clean and as advertised.

  • 5 of 5

I just spent 10 nights in this rental with my family (4 adults, a two year old and a baby) and it was the perfect set up for our vacation. Great central location for exploring various parts of the island with several child friendly beaches nearby.

There were a few minor things that the kitchen didn`t have initially but the owner spoke with us the first day as we were using the pool and as soon as it was mentioned a bag with the things we needed was run up immediately. The owners were very accommodating and great to deal with. We loved their dog Ula as well. Highly recommended.

Wonderful home away from home for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Hale o na Honu for five days and four nights when we were visiting Kailua for my cousin's wedding in Lanikai. The cottage was perfect for our family - my husband and me, our 7 year old twin daughters, and my father.

The cottage was bright, airy, clean, and well-stocked. There was plenty of room for all of us. After six days in standard hotel rooms for 2-4x the price, having all that space, two bathrooms, a full kitchen and washer/dryer was luxurious!

We especially enjoyed sitting on the lanai at breakfast and taking in the spectacular view and the amazing cooling tradewinds. We loved having access to beach gear, and the ability to stock our fridge and pantry with our favorite foods and beverages, and to cook and barbecue rather than relying on restaurants or the ubiquitous ABC stores of Waikiki. Th cottage is less than ten minutes away from Kailua town, which has everything you could ever want, and the beautiful beaches of Kailua and Lanikai - our favorite place on the island.

Our girls also loved having the pool all to themselves rather than fighting for space at an overcrowded and loud resort pool, and love love loved playing with the owners' sweet dog Ula.

Arlene and Josh are wonderful hosts, warm and welcoming, and always gracious when I contacted them with questions or requests - and if you want to give any water sports a try, they are experts and will definitely be able to hook you up and point you in the right direction.

Our girls told us they staying her the best of all the places we stayed (including a beachfront Waikiki resort with an ocean view and impressive pool playground complete with water slides - now that is saying a lot!) We can't wait to stay there again on our next visit.

Wow! What a gem.

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Oahu 8 times and can say this was the top place we've stayed. The hosts generously provide everything you need and more. The house was super clean, spacious and quiet. The BBQ, lanai and pool were a great bonus. We would recommend this place to families or couples looking for a quiet, authentic stay. Kailua itself is a casual beach town with lots to do while still enjoying privacy, exactly the same as the accommodations. We loved our stay, thanks again.

Excellent clean home with a view & a pool!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 2 weeks and really enjoyed our stay. Home had plenty of size for our family of 5. Lanai has beautiful view of Kailua. Pool was nice and private and the owners did not mind our kids splashing, playing and having fun. The owners were very easy to get a hold of and talk too with any questions but they also left us to ourselves and gave us plenty of space and privacy. If fact they were very accommodating when (with a little notice) we requested a late check out as our flights did not leave until 10pm. It was nice to be able to have beach chairs, beach towels, sand toys and a cooler available as other places we've stayed in the past did not have these items and we had to either purchase them, bring them, or make do. Homes location is extremely easy to get in and out of and is quite accessible to main roads. However it is far enough away from the main roads that it is very quiet. 5 min drive to down town Kailua as well as probably one of the best beaches in Oahu. 25 mins in good traffic from down town Honolulu. We stayed in Hawaii's "winter". So because the home is in the hills a bit, we tended to get some clouds and overcast. However once again, we were only 5 mins from the beach where the sun almost always shines so it was never a problem. If you are looking for a budget conscious vacation home for a family that includes a private pool, plenty of space and decent sized kitchen, eating and lounging area as well as bedrooms, than I would highly recommend this home. 2nd bedroom has a queen and 2 single beds with plenty of room for 4 people. Master was nice as we had our own bathroom. If you want to bring your family and some grand parents or a combination of family/friends this property also has a studio available just down the stairs from the rental home. Excellent stay. Thank you.
