Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Waimanalo - Cottage by the Sea

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, sleeps 1-4

Welcome to 'Cottage by the Sea'---an ideal place for rest, relaxation and romance.

Imagine a place that feels so far off the beaten path you can still feel the spirit of 'Old Hawaii' gracing the rooms of this special Waimanalo gem.

It is simple yet perfect, complete with all the details that make a place truly comfortable and homey. The cottage is decorated with many personal touches, tropical and artistic with its own unique feeling.

Walk up a beautiful stone pathway; edged with colorful plants, tall palms, and banana trees, to enter into this very private enchanted domain.

The sun dappled porch calls to you, strewn with the fushia and purple petals of the bouganvillas that frame it, a symphony of birds singing their welcome. Feel the sense of peace, of coming to your home away from home.

A two minute walk down the road will take you to one of the most beautiful beaches in Hawaii. Sunrise is spectacular.

Enjoy a cup of coffee and watch the show!

A cool and romantic bedroom features a queen size bed with ceiling fan, and beautiful island art to create a sensual and very Hawaiian type of ambiance.

Guests repeatedly tell me how at home they feel here, with the cozy atmosphere and attention to detail so evident.

The cottage is nestled in a tropical garden filled with banana and papaya trees, colorful flowers and the fragrant aroma of plumerias floating on the ocean breeze. Birdsong and the sound of the ocean surf fill the garden with its own special music.

The location is ideal, in a residential country setting and only two houses from one of the most beautiful beaches on the island (in 2001 National Geographic named it one of the most beautiful beaches in the world!).

The beach is totally undeveloped, just miles of undisturbed beauty with the stunning grandeur of the Ko'olau Mountains hugging the coastline in a spectacular embrace.

All this is only a two minute walk from the cottage!

In the back there is a private yard lush with tropical plants. The backyard has a gas barbecue grill with a dining table and a couple of lounge chairs by the little water fall, perfect for star gazing at night or lounging under the endless summer sun.

Welcome to a little piece of paradise. Restore your spirit and feel the peace within.

Let the sound of the waves caress you to sleep at night and embrace the morning with another perfect day at the beach.

Dear Skye,

This cottage reminds us of a second home, or, more precisely, it feels like the original one: a dwelling of the heart.

This is why we return again and again.

UNIQUE - LUCKY US TO FIND YOU!

Many thanks Skye--our rest in your beachside haven was fantastic and the cottage is everything you said it was and much more. We've travelled and travelled since leaving beautiful Hawaii - LA, Vancouver, Alaska, UK and India - and the only time our feet really touched the ground and felt relaxed was with you and all the locals we met on The Bus and around Waimanalo - what fun!
We'll spread the word----but not too much!

All the best & cheers,

All True!

  • 5 out of 5
My husband, 25-yr old daughter and I stayed for 5 days and loved it there. I just re-read the description of the cottage and it is completely accurate. Everything I was going to say is already there. So colorful, comfortable, carefully maintained! Every little detail from the lovely (old?) photos of hula dancers in the bedroom to the interesting turquoise pottery dishes and glassware in the kitchen feels chosen with care. I feared it might be funky and was both relieved and delighted to find it spotless and lovely. As for Waimanalu itself: again, great description: "Old Hawaii". Rural, small and a community of permanent residents -- not just tourists. The beach is your tropical fantasy PLUS really safe and easy. We are water wimps and felt at ease there. We ate well at Sweet Home, Hawaii Time Cafe, Sergs and Keneke's. I can't imagine staying anywhere else on Oahu!

Perfect for Us

  • 5 out of 5
How lucky we are to have found this sweet cottage! We needed a place to relax and regroup after a very strenuous year and all our needs were met. The cottage itself is both whimsical and peaceful - a cozy, private refuge. We found Skye to be a warm and helpful host while providing complete privacy.

 We were happy just relaxing in the cottage but also appreciated having the most beautiful beach we have ever seen a very short walk away and we  swam at least twice every day. Also, within walking distance, were Serge's Mexican Restaurant and Sweet Home Waimanalo which were very convenient places to have a delicious and inexpensive meal. Kailua is an easy 20 minute drive away for shopping and entertainment and we did pick up some groceries there but there is a small supermarket in Waimanalo as well. 

We found our whole experience to be exactly what we were looking for!

Small but lovely cottage

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I and our two teenage sons stayed at Skye's Cottage by the Sea in mid July and were very happy with it. It was very clean, comfortable, and had everything we needed for our stay. It's in a residential neighborhood and was nice and quiet even though there are lots of houses close by.

There was a small grocery nearby as well as some restaurants that were within walking distance. The beach was a short walk down the street and was absolutely beautiful. We spent a lot of time there.

Although we didn't cook much while we were there, the kitchen appeared to be well stocked with pots and pans and utensils. Skye supplied coolers, chairs, boogie boards, and even has a gas grill in the private backyard.

Only downside was that it was pretty hot while we were there (unusually so, I think) and the little air conditioner had a hard time keeping up. We only ran it at night so it would be pretty hot in the cottage when we would come in in the afternoon. It would eventually cool things down but if you're really hot natured you might want to avoid July.

Overall, a nice stay.

Exceeded expectations!!!

  • 5 out of 5
Skye- Thank you for entrusting your home to us. This was our first official family vacation as a family of four- Owen 1 and Joshua 2, and it was perfect! The gorgeous beach, friendly people, quiet neighborhood, and home away from home was the right fit. We can't wait to return. The boys also LOVED dancing in the rain in the backyard:) Perfect location. We were hesitant at first booking a vacation rental online, but it was well worth it.

Great location for relaxation

  • 5 out of 5
We have stayed here twice and look forward to our third stay next year. Watch a sunrise on a beautiful beach to start your day. Enjoy the many things to do within an easy drive and return to the beach to watch the moonrise and stars which are outstanding to finish the day. As you fall asleep you can hear the waves softly lulling you to sleep. The cottage is very private and has everything you'll need to cook your meals which helps keep your costs down. We loved using the grill in our own private back yard. I've stayed at many locations on Oahu and have found the Cottage by the Sea to be the best. Can't wait to return.
