Overview

About the property

Picture This! Cottage w ocean view...sensibly priced... a minute from beach

Waimanalo is known for its lush green tropical trees, white sand beach and the Ko'olau Mountains as the backdrop. For this reason many film makers use this neighborhood, and so this property also was featured in the TV series Hawaii Five-O season 5.

We know you will appreciate the value - what you get for the money - when staying in our cottage. You have beautiful surroundings, all the amenities of home and a short minute walk to the beach!

The cottage is a traditional Hawaiian beach cottage which is ideal for 2 adults, however can accommodate up to 4. The bedroom is spacious with a queen bed. For additional guests, the sofa converts to a European designed bed that is not a spring mattress but fold out to a firm foundation for restful sleep.

The cottage is also equipped with washer/dryer, full kitchen with amenities for any meal preparation, and a BBQ grill on patio area.

You also have a designated parking space on a private driveway and plenty of grass yard to enjoy! And when you arrive, you'll find our free Aloha gift awaiting you. Tell us a few things about your food and beverage likes and dislikes, and we'll prepare something with you in mind!

A great cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed in this cottage and really enjoyed it. It's just across the street from Waimanalo Beach. The cottage is very nicely furnished and had everything we needed. John and Petra were very friendly and easy to work with. Highly recommend this cottage for a family or couple!

Want to comeback soon

  • 5 of 5

This place has everything you need, especially if you don't want to be in the crowed Honolulu area. It feel like home with a few steps from the ocean. Great host, don't look any further this is the place!

Beautiful well equipped cottage. Steps way from the most gorgeous beach.

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the cottage. It is very well equipped and nicely furnished and located on a quiet residential street. We enjoyed the closeness to the beach and the outdoor areas of the cottage with lawn chairs and BBQ. Great extras: boogie boards, beach chairs, beach umbrella, etc. The beach is one of the best ones on the island and never feels crowded. Great for long beach walks, swimming, boogie boarding. A big thank you to Petra and John for being fantastic hosts. We can't wait to be back. Angelika and Michael, San Francisco

Wonderful beach house in Waimanalo

  • 5 of 5

John and Petra were wonderful. The cottage is newly remodeled beautifully. Everything was updated, clean and neat. Boogie boards, beach accessories, towels were all provided. The kitchen was fully stocked so we enjoyed cooking meals for our children who live in Waimanalo. Thank you for your warm hospitality.

Close to beach, charming home with friendly and helpful hosts

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the cottage in Waimanalo. Both John and Petra were super friendly and helpful during our entire stay. The cottage was in a perfect location and the beach was right across a neighborhood street. The cottage itself was lovely and had all the essentials and plenty nonessential items to use. We were greeted with a welcome package and were allowed to check in a little early. We will definitely stay at the Picture This! cottage again and recommend staying here if you are looking for a quiet get-away, away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki Beach. Thank you John & Petra for an amazing and unforgettable honeymoon :) .

Quaint and quiet little cottage

  • 4 of 5

John and Petra are wonderful and accommodating hosts, it's not immediately clear from the pictures, but this VRBO is actually adjacent to their own home in Waimanalo and shares their driveway. We didn't mind this, they are very mindful of their guest's privacy, and have set up the cottage to be very easy to just walk into and start your vacation, from towels to bedding, furniture and a fully prepped kitchen with dishes, cutlery and appliances.

There is a running tradition of prior guests leaving behind things that future guests will enjoy or may have forgotten, like aloe or shampoo, ketchup in the fridge, etc.

You can't beat the beach here, the Waimanalo Beach is enormous, and really only locals come hang out there, as there are no hotels nearby. It's a very quiet neighborhood, and everyone is friendly. My partner and I spend a number of nights hanging out on the beach with nobody around, which is a hard thing to find on any inhabited tropical island.

I gave the review 4 stars only because of the general area: if you are looking for the "tourist" things to do, you'll find that you are going to be spending about 45 minutes or more driving to get there. Also, there isn't much in the way of local cuisine in Waimanalo, and nearby Kailua isn't much better. If you're a decent cook however, the cottage is close to a few grocery stores and the place is setup to cook in or BBQ at home.

Next time we plan a trip to Oahu, Waimanalo is where we plan on staying, and specifically at this cute little cottage. Thanks again to John and Petra!!
