Overview

About the property

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

A large private, free standing cottage/home with full amenities located 2 miles above Waimea Bay, including, in addition to the full bathroom, an added outdoor shower area, beautiful acre of green lawn and a TV room with 50' Plasma TV/DVD and quiet split Air Conditioning.

Away from the crowds, this is a beautiful, serene, gated property for the honeymooners, couples or quiet individuals. The acre and half is shared with the owners home on the same property. Less than 5 minutes to beach at a cool elevation. Surrounded by tropical fruit trees and plants including Mango, Banana, Avocado, Star Fruit, Tangerine, Lychee, Jack Fruit, Lemon, Pomolo, Macadamia and Coconut trees.

Sleeps 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.

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, AC 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, private 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.

This is just the best place to stay on the island!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is a lot bigger than it looks in pictures, it has a cozy TV room (you don't see the TV on the wall), the king bed is really comfortable, and the kitchen is as large a regular one at home. Rick is a great host, even helps you with your bags! The location is perfect, close to everything but far enough away to ensure a quiet haven. You want to go into Haleiwa and eat at Haleiwa Joe's, the Blackened Mahi Mahi is the best. The landscaping is beautiful and you will enjoy the outdoor private shower. The food trucks are an institution here and you have the largest concentration of them right down at the bottom of the hill. Ted's Bakery is just up the road, yum. At the bottom of the hill there is also a great beach with parking to watch the sunset. We would not even consider spending our next trip anywhere else.

Sounds like you had a great time trying all the amazing food offerings of the North Shore. One always thinks of the great beaches here but glad you mention the incredible variety of creative food offerings the North Shore has. Pretty cool combo! Hurry back! Aloha and Mahalo!

Great North Shore Cottage in Pupukea

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful cottage. It is spacious, clean, and comfortable and is located on a beautiful (and safe) property in the Pupukea uplands, perched above Waimea Bay and about 5 minutes drive from the shoreline. We were able to cook when we wanted, but the cottage is close enough to drive quickly to Haleiwa (when Kam Highway is not congested). We appreciated the use of beach chairs and umbrella. Had there been a wave in sight, I would have used the available boogie boards. (We visited in June, when the North Shore is calm and serious surfers have disappeared.) Cable TV was available if we had wanted to use it. Rick was responsive and helpful and our stay went very smoothly. I highly recommend this vacation rental.

Beautiful peacefuly large space amongst the trees

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful space to return to each day after discovering Oahu’s North Shore! We loved our stay at Rick and Inga’s, two beautiful souls who welcomed us with hospitality above and beyond. The space is huge and well equipped, the bed is so comfortable that we’ve come home and now want a new one ourselves!

We would recommend staying to anyone who wants to explore the north shore and have a beautiful retreat to return to each day. We would love to return some day.

Pupukea Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Great place. Great location. Quiet retreat, away from the tourist hustle and bustle. Comfortable bed. But the best part is the outdoor shower. Look forward to coming back sometime.

Really Nice Place to Stay on the North Shore

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is beautifully decorated and we loved the location! Very well tended and taken care of. Great value for the money!

Their was a rooster and some dogs that liked to be loud on the adjacent properties...that was a little bit annoying, but we would still stay here again because the house and property are that nice.

Just as an FYI...the cottage is located on the same property as the owner's home. I can't remember seeing that in the description. Still private, but just wanted to put that out there in case others wanted to know.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. As Justin said, neighbor has a couple of dogs and sometimes they bark. Lasts a 1-2 minutes and then they stop like someone flipped a switch! Weird. We, the owners, are on the same property, but totally separate. Total privacy. Other than occasional bark it’s really quiet. An acre and half of Country! Come back soon! And again, appreciate your taking the time to write your positive review. Aloha.

5 Nights

  • 5 of 5

This is a great pace to stay and relax. Cottage is actually very large and well stocked with beach items, soaps and various other items. Bed was the nicest of any we slept on in our 15 night trip; just like being home. The historical town of Haliewa and Turtle bay are each just 10 to 15 minutes away. We lost electricity on day due to high winds and Rich above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of. Grounds were beautifully maintained. We would stay here again in a heart beat.
