After a sun-soaked day, return home to your private backyard oasis where you can dine alfresco and listen to the waves just feet away.

The well-equipped kitchen has everything you need to cook tasty vacation meals.

Enjoy morning coffee at the two-person bar. When it’s time to eat, gather around the antique Hawaiian koa wood dining table, which comfortably seats six.


This home sleeps two in the bedroom and two children in the daybeds in the living room.

The bathroom is stocked with complimentary starter supplies of toiletries. Enjoy the unique experience of freshening up in the enclosed outdoor shower, which is equipped with both hot and cold water. (The sink and toilet are indoors, adjacent to the bedroom.)


The ocean views are stunning from the tropical backyard. Mature kamani and heliotrope trees provide ample shade, while a picnic table, chaise loungers, and a hammock offer appealing lounging areas.

Walk just steps to the lava rock shoreline, offering an excellent place to snorkel along the island's longest coral reef. At the end of a fun-filled day of exploring, fire up the charcoal BBQ grill and enjoy a seaside cookout.


Guest amenities include complimentary Wi-Fi, a coin-operated washer/dryer (coins provided for your stay) in the on-site laundry room, and parking for one vehicle in the driveway.

Although this home is not equipped with air conditioning, it is rarely needed with Hawaii’s pleasant trade winds. The cottage has several ceiling fans to ensure your comfort.
