About the property

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 2015 Dr. Beach named it one of the best beaches in the U.S.----in 2003 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 very private yard lush with tropical plants. The backyard has a propane 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

My husband and I and our two teenage daughters loved this place. The beautiful grounds reminded us constantly that we were in a tropical paradise. The proximity to the beach is unbeatable. The property is definitely accurately protrayed. Thanks again Skye!

darling island beach cottage

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

wanted the island feel and close to beach...and we found it! cottage is full of personality, cozy and so secluded, yet 2 minutes to beach ( beautiful water and beach ). the garden area in back is very tropical with an authentic vibe. lots of windows providing wonderful sea breezes and great sleeping! high winds and rain kept us off the beach our entire 3 day stay, disappointing.

Skye was great to work with. very responsive and accessible.

Thanks again Skye! Hope to be back some day...with sunny weather!

This was our second time in this cottage, third time in waimanalo and it continues to be life changing. The cottage is unique and secluded. It offers all amenities and is a true beach Bach. One in a million.

Magnificent stay! Magical setting!

Our stay in Waimanalo was everything we hoped it would be. The pictures and reviews from previous guests were spot on. Skye was absolutely delightful to work with and was a very gracious host. The beach is breath taking and extremely secluded. The neighborhood is a quiet and quaint beach community. The coast line is some of the most picturesque in all of Hawaii. We were able to get to most any point on the island in less than 60 minutes. Snorkeling nearby (15 min) in Hanauma Bay is world class. We hope to return again at some point in the future. As someone who is a veteran VRBO renter -this is a "you can't go wrong" rental option for Hawaii. Aloha! Buck

Peaceful retreat!

Skye's cottage was clean, quiet and well equipped with any amenities a person or even a family would need. She was prompt in communication, as well as very warm and welcoming. The proximity to the beach is excellent, with a couple restaurants also within walking distance. Would not hesitate to stay here again!
