I definitely plan on staying at Ron's place again next time I'm in Hawaii! He is a great host and the place has an amazing view. The cottage is comfortable and is walking distance to plenty of places to eat.

Great place for any type of trip. Quiet neighborhood that's close enough for good sight seeing and dinner in Waikiki.

Our family of four was looking for something less touristy than a hotel in Waikiki for our vacation to Oahu & found it with Ron’s Cottage by the Bay. The Cottage is located in a lovely, quiet residential area on a bay. The marina is nearby with a number of fast food & sit down restaurants, a Walgreens, gas station, Foodland & various other local shops. The neighborhood is off of a major road with easy access getting all parts of the island. The Cottage itself is like a larger hotel room, the space was clean, the queen bed & sofa/futon comfortable to sleep in, the bathroom/shower in working order. The host provided wifi & there was free on-street parking across the street. He also had beach towels, chairs, a tent & cooler for taking trips to the beach. The kitchenette was just enough for our purposes… mostly breakfasts & keeping cold drinks. For fellow travelers who need their A/C note that the Cottage includes an A/C window unit. We were gone mostly all day exploring the island, so turned the unit on once returned & it cooled down fairly quickly. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay at the Cottage & truly appreciated Ron’s hospitality.

Wonderful place to stay in the Hawaii Kai area of the island. Just close enough to Waikiki without being too close to all the hustle and bustle of downtown. Very close to both Hanauma Bay and Diamond head.

The cottage by the bay was a perfect place for me to come for five days while working on a research project in Oahu. The unit had everything I needed, including plenty of towels (bath, hand, washcloths) as well as beach towels and chairs (even sunscreen!) The kitchenette also was completely stocked with glasses, plates, utensils, napkins, extra coffee and tea, a little fridge and sink and drying rack. In addition to the coffee maker, there was also a hot water heater, a blender, a toaster and a microwave. The cottage was very clean, and I noticed all the attention to detail--including that the sponge was still in its wrapper and thus unused. The absolute best part of the cottage was its location. Someone had written that it is a 15 second walk to a small beach, and it is true. The sunsets over Diamond Head were absolutely stunning every night. It was also a short, and beautiful!, drive to Sandy Beach and some amazing scenic look-outs, where I watched the sunrise several mornings. Parking on the street is ample and free and from the cottage I walked to starbucks, a little breakfast place, kona brewery, 24 fitness gym. Ron made arrival simple with the cottage open and the key on a small table. He was available for any questions, but not at all intrusive in terms of my need for space and privacy. I would absolutely stay here again, and hope I have occasion to before too long!
