Looking for a safe, secluded, and beautiful place to stay, then this is the place! Go back in time to the real Hawaii in this beachfront cottage. Ocean views surround you on a tropical, white sandy beach. Relax on your lanai (patio) and listen to waves gently breaking on a distant reef. Sunrises and moonrises over the ocean greet you daily. This cottage has a spacious feeling, full kitchen, washer and dryer, flat-screen TV, and beach equipment. Parking and wifi are included.
“We had the fortunate ability to stay on the windward side of the Island at Karon’s cottage for a week. It’s close to the essentials but feels hundreds of miles away from the bustle of Honolulu. The beach area is right at your doorstep! The community is welcoming and full of wonderful people to meet. The waves at night are the most peaceful sound and can lull you right to sleep. Sunrises in the morning with a cup of coffee on the lanai became a favorite ritual. We were able to swim, float, snorkel, and paddle board right out front. No need to drive to a better location for water activities. The cottage is cozy and well stocked for homemade meals. The washer and dryer are huge which at times can be much needed! We saw turtles, geckos, birds, and lots of fish! Escape the resort feeling and live like a local. I would recommend this location to everyone and cannot wait to come back again. So much more to explore and do. Thank you Karon for allowing us to stay at your beautiful cottage.”

“The place is absolutely wonderful and I stated it's a bit better than expected because although I was expecting a great retreat, it's hard to describe how wonderful it is to wake up to the sounds of the ocean being so close to it. The listing is very thorough and you'll receive even more thorough instructions and recommendations. This airbnb not only had washer/dryer units on site, but they also provided a few detergent pods which were very thoughtful. I can only be nitpicky with very minor details since the listing was so thorough with great images and met my expectations well. The only couple things that would make this private place even better is if there was a full-body mirror and the TV was positioned differently. The cabinet mirrors sort of worked to see your full body, but were small. I was there for a wedding and would've liked to see my full outfit conveniently when I was getting ready. I had a "stay-in" night and wanted to watch an ocean-related movie from the bed with real ocean breeze/sounds for atmosphere. You can't really angle the tv to do so with the current mount position. Again, these are very nitpicky and watching a movie was totally unnecessary, esp from the bed at this location. As she listed, it's a Roku smart tv so it was already more than I would expect from a shared space. If I'm staying this far north for my next visit to Oahu, I'll definitely keep this location in mind or check if Kristen has other listings.”

“I have been to 35 countries. I have stayed in 100+Airbnb’s. This is by far in my top 5. The beach is less than a 15 second walk away from my bed, with our very own private beach. The location is the perfect mix between being completely desolate and surrounded by community. Shopping is minutes away. The beach is in a cove with minimal waves crashing near the sand so the subtle sound of the waves is soothing when you sleep. It also ensures the water is crystal clear so you see straight through to the bottom of the ocean floor. I was in contact to Jacqui before we got here and she was awesome. Always responded fast and allowed us to check in early. The house is perfect for a group. All the beds are unbelievably comfortable and everything down to the cable TV was a pleasant surprise. Kitchen is filled with everything if you want to cook. I will 100% come back to Hawaii and 100% will come back to jacqui’s property. We are so grateful to of found this spot in the most perfect destination.”
