Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Haleiwa - Beautiful Large Cottage

Sleeps 1-2. Carefree, quiet, relaxed, spacious vacation (honeymoon) heaven.

A large private cottage/home with full amenities located 2 miles above Waimea Bay, including an added outdoor shower area, beautiful acre of green lawn and a TV room with 50' Plasma TV/DVD.

Away from the crowds, this is a beautiful, serene, gated property for the honeymooners, couples or quiet individuals. Surrounded by tropical fruit trees and plants including Mango, Banana, Avocado, Star Fruit, Tangerine, Lychee, Jack Fruit, Lemon, Pomolo, Macadamia and Coconut trees.

Sleeps 1-2 adults maximum, no exceptions (one king size bed + one single bed). We added a single bed located in the TV room for two singles traveling. The TV/Bed room can be private by closing the curtains. To maintain the special nature and experience of your stay; sorry, not suitable for children and please, no smoking or visitors.

At the perfect elevation with cool Hawaiian breezes and away from noise and traffic this cottage/home gives you privacy with tinted glass windows, WiFi, cable, washer/dryer, microwave, dishwasher and of course, plenty of aloha!

For the quiet, private persons you will find this to be a very special place to stay for a total retreat and recharged vacation. You will feel at home and at peace in this beautiful, tropical paradise.

We like to think of our place as a retreat from the world. A place to recharge, a base to return to, a feeling of peace and beauty. It is a home, away from home. Of course, we want the cottage to reflects this and wish our guests this experience.

Simply Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful cottage is an absolute must-stay! I don't normally post any sort of reviews on line of any kind but this experience was so good I wanted to let others know of this excellent rental and the wonderful owners. My wife and I guarantee you that the cottage is even better in real life than the pictures, and my wife and I will always rent this cottage on any future trip to Oahu.

We met the owners as we arrived, and they were extremely nice, helpful and gracious hosts throughout our entire week-long stay. The cottage itself is a supremely clean and very high-end and well-outfitted place which had all the comforts of home and more. It has a great and very new kitchen and bathroom, full refrigerator and clothes washer and dryer, and very nice furniture and appliances throughout the cottage. My wife and I were blown away when we walked in the door and took a quick walk-around inside...the first impressions are "wow" and "this is an incredible place". This cottage could easily rent for two or three times more than we paid for it.

In addition to the outstanding privacy and security this cottage offers, there is a great view, an outside shower which we used frequently, and it is in a good neighborhood.

My wife and I stayed on Oahu for ten total days and had looked at numerous places to stay on the North Shore. We stayed at another place farther up the Shore for two nights, and ended up leaving that place one day early so we could get to this cottage, even though the early departure from the first place meant incurring an early departure fee - it was well worth it.

Advice to other travelers going to North Shore - what you see on line is not always what you get; our first location on this trip proved that. This cottage is exactly what is advertised and MUCH more. We HIGHLY recommend it for honeymooners, couples, and those who are seeking a very, very nice, clean, classy, secure and high-end place to stay on the North Shore. You will love it!

Quiet, clean, beautiful, serene, and clean( oh did I already say that?!?:)

  • 5 of 5

The grounds and cottage were simply beautiful. Up Pupukea above any noise and traffic the North Shore could occasionally bring, was literally a breath of fresh air to come home to every day and night. This was my wife's 1st time in Hawaii and while it'll never be debated that the place is amazing, this being my 4th, knew that while not bothersome, the sight of little bugs and geckos indoors are just part of the Aloha lifestyle. My wife being the city gal she is wasn't too fond of that idea, but boy is she spoiled now. There was actually not one little bug we seen, and believe me, my wife kept an eye out(hahah). Besides that, the space itself was wide open and modern with all the amenities(and more) anyone could hope for. The bed was as comfortable as mine at home, both indoor and outdoor showers were extremely clean and functional with excellent water pressure. Brand new laundry and kitchen appliances with granite countertops. There were wonderful beach chairs, coolers, and other beach necessities as well as private gated parking. As for Rick and Inga they could not have been anymore sweet, interesting, and non-intrusive. I could go on and on and haven't even touched on the actual place of the North Shore which believe me speaks for itself. The Foodland and food trucks at the bottom of the hill(a 5 min drive) can supply you with all your needs, i.e. food, alcohol, sunscreen- and Haliewa which is a cute little town with shopping, restaurants, and such as well as Turtle Bay with it's repertoire of such are only a 20 min drive away. Some of the best beaches in the world are less than 10 and there is no shortage of them. So why are you still reading this, go book with Rick and Inga(haha)-mahalo!!

A well-appointed, relaxing home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time staying at this cottage! The hosts, Rick and Inge, have thought of every detail and have created a low-key, elegant environment to enjoy the best of Oahu. The cottage is nestled in a quiet neighborhood up the hill from Pupukea beach, with easy access to Waimea Bay, Haleiwa, and not too far from the freeway to town. They have everything you'd need - a full kitchen, beach supplies, cable TV, and books everywhere. There's also a grocery store at the bottom of the hill that's convenient for a quick stop. If you want to be in the center of the action, this may not be the place for you...but if your idea of a perfect vacation is a place where you can enjoy all the sights and sounds of the city, then retreat to quiet comfort, do yourself a favor and don't stay in town. Stay here instead. We'll be back for sure.

Private and Secure

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay. It is private and gated. It is 2 miles up the mountain, but very easy to get to anything at the North Shore. The Foodland store is located at the bottom of the road, so it is very easy to get supplies.

The owners meet you and provide good advice for your stay.

Beautiful, Private and Unique Vacation Home: Very Close to Groceries, Beaches and Hiking.

  • 5 of 5

It was so exciting! We were finally in Hawaii again after our first visit 10 years ago. This time we were celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary and we were approaching our “cottage away from the world”, just a five-minute drive to the North Shore of Oahu where the beaches are wonderful and so is the hiking…

We walked in the front door and into a beautiful spacious kitchen that turned out to have everything one could ask for from the brand new appliances and spacious cabinets and counter tops to everything we needed for our meal preparation including a large salad bowl! (We enjoyed being in this cottage so much that we purchased all the groceries we needed at the full service grocery store at the bottom of the hill and prepared all our meals “at home”).

In the living room/bedroom area there was the very comfortable king-sized bed you see in the photo with a conveniently large night table and lamp on each side. The rest of the decor was eclectic with interesting cabinets, chests, tables, lamps, rugs and accessories, all very comfortably arranged, giving the house character and an air that was both chic and cozy.

I mustn’t neglect to mention the ample closet space behind louvered doors at the end of the room. There were plenty of hangers and space for three suitcases full of clothes and shoes!

But perhaps what I loved the most about this enchanting space were the three enormous plate glass windows that looked out into the garden. We would go to bed with the curtains open so that when we awoke in the morning all we had to do was open our eyes and we could gaze out the windows at the sky, the mountain in the background, the lawn and the trees along the edge of the property. It was wonderful and it really was private!

Then there was the den with its large, comfortable couch and large flat screen TV. This room has a sliding glass door that leads out to the outdoor shower - one more feature that makes this house such a gem.

The bathroom was also spacious with plenty of good lighting, a large mirror and large walk-in shower. The washer and dryer were brand new as well and there were plenty of towels stored in the cabinet above the dryer.

Rick and Inga are very conscientious and interesting people and have gone all out in preparing this vacation home and are dedicated to making sure their guests have everything they need for an enjoyable stay. My husband and I highly recommend this cottage as a unique and beautiful place to stay!

An extra special holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We researched where to stay for a long time before booking this property, especially reading reviews, as this was going to be a very special month long vacation and we did not want the accommodation to disappoint us. Well, it certainly did not disappoint us. It exceeded our expectations. We have stayed in other locations on Oahu and this property is the best by far.

The photographs are accurate.

We found the descriptions accurate and helpful. Attention to detail such as beach chairs, boogy boards, beach towels we have not experienced before.

We enjoyed the peace and quiet of the property and had great fun at the beaches, also shopping in Haleiwa.

The outdoor shower was a lovely treat every day when we got back from the beach and the indoor bathroom a completely added alternative. Having laundry facilities really completed the deal for a fabulous holiday.

This was truly an unforgettable experience and we will not hesitate to return. We will recommend this property to friends and family.

Thank you to Rick and Inge for providing everything we could have asked for.
