Overview

Hawaii Kai Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage,+ Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Incredible COTTAGE! How can you vacation in Hawaii and not have an ocean view!! My wife and I have a Rental Car and a Concierge Service business in Waikiki. We can assist you with renting a Smart Cars for 2 or planning your trip to Hawaii in making reservations for activities-attractions, inter-island flights, etc.

Authentic Hawaii vacation retreat in Hahaione Valley-Hawaii Kai-East Side of Oahu! Get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday day life, rejuvenate, and revitalize yourself at this unique property. This vacation cottage is nestled in the lush mountain-forest on the east side of Oahu (Hawaii Kai). The cottage was just built in 2011. Experience the best of both worlds with spectacular views of the ocean, while perched on the side of a mountain-valley. The cottage is at the highest point on the backside of the property located above the main estate home with a private entrance.

The retreat boasts a small kitchenette, bar, large covered lanai for lounging while enjoying the ocean/mountain peak views. If that’s not enough use the extended lanai for sunbathing or have a maitai in your own private Jacuzzi after a hard days work at the beach.

Very cool outside shower, hammocks, and firepit with a seperate deck.

It can sleep 2-4, queen bed, futon, and small loft for 2 small children. Some guests prefer to sleep on the sofa located on the lanai as another option while it’s easy to fall asleep under the stars while the cool trade winds are blowing.

For guests who prefer to eat at the cottage, all the basic necessary cooking appliances, grill, etc are available. In addition, the cottage comes with your necessary beach tool kit: beach chairs, umbrella, and boogie boards, snorkel gear, or ask about a private surf lesson.

The location is nearby famous attractions and beaches such Hanauma Bay, Sandy Beach, Maunalua Bay, and Sealife Park. Three shopping centers, Costco, pharmacy, and many restaurants are with in a few miles. Parking is free

In this desired area many of the vacation rentals are substantiality higher in cost. This retreat-cottage is a great value and offered at an affordable price point, based on the overall options and amenities. The pictures don’t do justice in how the property shows.

Pure Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We found this hidden gem when on Oahu to celebrate our daughter's graduation from University of Hawaii. It is tucked in the valley with a postcard perfect view of the ocean. The cottage is well equipped with anything you could need in the kitchen and the outdoor living space was exactly what we were looking for even though we didn't know it. The towels were fluffy and the bedding was good quality as were the furnishings and extra touches decorating the cottage. We made cedar plank salmon on the grill and sat around the fire pit roasting marshmallows as the sun set. Mike was available to answer questions and hook us up with coolers and Mochi stopped by in the evening for a little visit. This cottage is a true find.

Outstanding!! Simple Outstanding!!!

  • 5 of 5

Made our first trip to Hawaii and simply by chance found this beautiful Cottage to stay in for our last 3 nights. In retrospect should have stayed our entire trip but now we know when we return. We can't say enough about this hidden gem. It has everything you need to have a great romantic Hawaiian vacation. It is very quiet and secluded. The view is unbeatable. Loved the hammock and the hot tub as well as the flat screen on the porch. The outdoor shower was nice too but don't worry there is another inside. We stopped at Costco on the way up the hill to stock up on some delicious ribeye's and cooked on the grill a meal fit for a king. Be sure and inquire with Mike about all your rental car needs as he rents Smartcars also and they were the bomb!! We had a great time touring Oahu in our Smartcar and the rates were extremely good. I could go on and on about our fantastic time on the island but I will close by giving this cottage our gold stamp of approval!!!! We will return!!!!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

After so many trips to Hawaii, our stay at the Murray cottage was a welcomed treat away from the craziness of Waikiki! The cottage is located in a quiet neighborhood in Hawaii Kai with a beautiful view and so many amenities. Our daughters, ages 15 and 18, enjoyed relaxing in the hammock and playing with Mochi, the resident dog who greeted us on our first day. The cottage had everything we needed but after staying a week, the washing machine was a blessing to have. We definitely plan to stay here on our next trip and take advantage of the BBQ grill!

PARADISE FOUND!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow- how lucky did we get! The aloha spirit is alive and well- thanks to the gracious hospitality of the Murray family. What wonderful ambassadors for Oahu,they were so helpful and knowledgeable about the island. Their beautiful guest cottage had everything you could ask for and the view was amazing. Waking up each morning to the sounds of tropical birds and Palm trees swaying made us feel so thankful that we had chosen to stay here.

There are not enough words to express how much we enjoyed our visit ( personal favorite was the outdoor shower- very Gilligan's Island like!). Our time here exceeded every expectation and more. ********** Ten Stars! Thanks again- we will be back!

Beautiful Hawaiian Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from a stay at this lovely property and thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent there. We are a family of two adults and two children, 16 and 8, and this was a perfect fit for our family. The cottage is beautifully decorated, just as your own home would be. The kitchen was fully stocked with things you didn't realize you needed! The deck is spacious with absolutely gorgeous views. Our children fell in love with the owners' little dog Mochi, who sometimes would come up for a visit, and didn't want to leave the property during the day for fear of missing him! As an aside, I was born in Honolulu and spent a considerable part of my childhood there so I am familiar with the different areas. If you are looking for a relaxing stay away from the craziness of the Waikiki area, this is the place to be. There is nothing I would change. We would definitely consider staying here again.

Great, Grand, Terrific

  • 5 of 5

If there was a six star rating I'd gladly give it. The view, privacy and most important, the Murrays are fantastic. We've stayed here before and keep coming back...
