What a dream!

  • 5 of 5

Kate's cottage is the type of place you wish your own home looked like. It was luxurious and romantic in a Hawaii honeymoon type of way, but also very cozy, comfortable and home-y. The pictures don't do it justice! The bed was like a cloud, and the shower head / water pressure felt amazing after a long day of hiking / surfing. Overall, we didn't spend too much time inside except to shower and sleep because Lanikai Beach and the Lanikai Pillboxes (hike) were both short walks away. The drive out to beautiful North Shore was also so much shorter from Lanikai than from any hotel in Waikiki / Honolulu. After staying in this neighborhood, I never want to stay in Waikiki again!

Beautiful Cottage in Lanikai close to beach!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for an immaculate, beautifully decorated cottage equipped with anything you could possibly need located near a dream-like beach, this is the perfect one! The homeowners were very friendly and helpful during our time at the cottage. The location is magnificent- steps away from the most beautiful beach in the United States! Wonderful restaurants (would highly recommend Buzz's ) and the park are very close by. The cottage was perfect for my husband and I with beautiful outside space. Would recommend it to anyone with 5 stars!

This is the place! No need to keep searching!

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't be more perfect. Every last detail has been thought of to make your stay comfortable and convenient. This cottage is cute, cozy, and impeccably clean. It's a 3-minute walk to the most amazing beach in Hawaii. Beach gear also provided. A quick 30 minute drive to Waikiki if you want a big city experience. Otherwise this beach and community offer plenty to do. This destination and this wonderful cottage is definitely on our top 10 list, make that top 5!

Absolutely satisfied

  • 5 of 5

Love this place, i stayed for a week and decided to come back for a month. Great location, 2min walk to the beautiful beach; the garden is my favourite, high plants and fence around provide enuf privacy, a tall tree provides shade, the beach is quite windy so i like to sunbath in the garden sometimes; the owner Kate is very friendly and considerate to buy me a cusion for outdoor use and a drying rack in the garden, she also gave me lots of helpful local information; the room is very nicely decorated, it feels bright, warm and sweet, perfect for couples.
