About Sarah J. Berntson, Realtor/Owner GE-093-694-5664-02 TA-093-694-5664-01 Tax ID

I love all water sports.....Hanalei has it all. I spend my time between two beautiful bays..Hanalei Bay and San Francisco Bay. Life is good, what could be better than experiencing the Hanalei lifestyle where the people are friendly, the fresh ahi is great and the beaches are long and beautiful. Come experience for yourself.

Why Sarah J. Berntson, Realtor/Owner GE-093-694-5664-02 TA-093-694-5664-01 Tax ID chose Hanalei Palms

The Cottage at Hanalei Bay is ideally located to everything. Nestled in the best small clusters of beach homes.

What makes this house unique

The Cottage at Hanalei Bay isn't just another rental it has been my home since 1983 and I am happy to share my charming Cottage with you.

Guestbook comments from the owner


Our 2 families totaling 6 adults were extremely comfortable in this beautiful cottage. Upon entering you are greeted by a spacious interior with large windows, a wood floor, original art, unusual antiques, and inviting seating areas. It is very welcoming and charming. Day by day we found that the rental has everything you need for a beach vacation.

The kitchen was a joy to use and we found all the equipment needed to cook and serve meals for 6 with attractive dinnerware. When we headed for the beach, there were chairs, towels and ice chests. Linens are top quality with plenty of extras if needed.

The configuration of the cottage lends itself well for 2 families to have comfort and privacy. On the main floor, there are two bedrooms and 1 ½ baths. Then up a short stairway is a large bedroom suite, sitting area, king bed and bath, with another queen bed and sitting area in the loft above. The loft bedroom shares the bath below but in a family setting it was not a problem. Each area has its own washer-dryer.

Originally we had wanted a house right on the beach but this house is so close that it seemed as if we were. It is a short walk (just 3 houses away) to the beautiful sandy beach on Hanalei Bay and its majestic setting with the Na Pali pinnacles as a backdrop. The bay has lifeguard stations and is one of the best swimming beaches in Hawaii. You can also walk to the charming town where there are lots of interesting shops as well as a variety of good restaurants and bakeries.

This house has been lovingly decorated, is extremely clean and meticulously maintained. It is also a quiet location where one can enjoy the serenity of a Hawaiian vacation.

It was a Mele Kalikimaka at the Hanalei Beach Cottage!!!

  • 5 of 5

This Hanalei home is a dream!!! Beautifully decorated, walking distance to the beach and very spacious. The home has a separate suite which was perfect for our teenagers to escape. The kids loved the outdoor shower after a morning surf in the bay. We loved being so close to the beach making early morning runs or an evening glass of wine at sunset so enjoyable. We also loved that we could walk into town to grab a coffee at our favorite spot, the Hanalei Bread Company, or to grab a bite to eat.

Sarah the owner was more than accommodating and so very gracious to us on Christmas Day! We greatly appreciate your hospitality and truly enjoyed working with you!

Great house great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful exceedingly well located property. Very clean, well appointed and well maintained by what you can tell is a very involved and meticulous owner. There are several house rules but to the owners credit she has great pride in this home and as a guest you feel compelled to treat it as your own.

We just returned from our stay at the Cottage and loved every single minute of it. Wonderful place just three houses from the beach. We also loved the short walk to town. The Cottage was spotless and had all we needed for a great stay. We did rent bikes and a surf board in town. Can't wait to plan our trip for next time

AMAZING in every way

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what a little piece of paradise, and by little I am not referring to the actual house. To be honest, this was only my second VRB/HA rental, and I think I am ruined for all future rentals, because I do not believe they will every be as nice as the Cottage. The house seemed all most brand new. Great breeze kept the upstairs apartment/loft cool at night, so no issue with lack of AC up there. The AC downstairs quickly cooled off the lower bedrooms. And again the openness of the house kept it cool, even in July. The house was impeccably clean, not even a single bug detected!

We didn't have a need to contact the host because everything was perfect, that said I did have a brief chat with host, and that went very well.

I can recommend the Cottage and its location with the highest confidence. AMAZING in every way!!!!

Perfection at the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in the Hanalei Beach Cottage. My husband and I had the upstairs unit, while my son, his wife, and their two small children were downstairs. That worked out perfectly! We've come many times to Hanalei and this was one of our best vacations. Five star for sure!
