“Get away”
Reviewed 27 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

A wonderful spot to relax
The caretakers were very kind everything was in order
We were missing a channel changer for the tv but Rudy quickly helped and found us one he was a great guy
We enjoyed being out where there was no tourists yet not far to get a dinner and go to grocery
Definitely the place to stay hope our travels meet up again some day Blessings and Smiles from our family

“literally, right on the beach!”
Reviewed 19 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

This wonderful little cottage is literally right on the beach. as you lay in bed, you can look out and see the ocean, hear the crashing waves, and see all of the stars. i had a view of the little dipper as i went to sleep each night! the beach access is perfect. the cottage is cozy and just the right size for two people. the porch is the best part- covered to protect you from the sun and has plenty of seating. you are close enough to haliewa and to the sugar mill in wailua, but you are also far enough from everything that you feel like you are truly away from it all!

Bernadette and Rueben were lovely hosts - making us feel very welcome and offering aloe to soothe our sunburns!

the only thing i would change would be to put some sort of wall light near the bed for reading at night. otherwise, it's perfect! i want to go back!

“Best on the beach ever”

1 room cabin 10' off the beach. 4 mile beach with few people around. Just turtles & fish. The locals are great. No big resorts for miles. Come to enjoy how Hawaii used to be. Relax & breath.

“Didn't Want to Leave”
Reviewed 23 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

people found this review helpful

This wonderful tiny cottage is literally perched on a sand bluff feet away from the Pacific on a wild stretch of the north coast. It was almost like camping on the beach, except with the amenities of a house! Sea turtles swam in the shallow reef surrounding the beach which would be ideal for snorkeling. Mokuleia Beach Park, adjacent to the cottage, provides world-class kite boarding and wind surfing when the summer trade winds are blowing, Bernadette and Rubin were gracious hosts. Dreamy...

I will never forget Owen's retreat. It was a perfect stay. I can't call it rustic as it was perhaps the most comfortable bed of all time. Big fridge, powerful blender, great grille.
Perfectly romantic.
Mahalo!!

“Absolute beach front- Amazing”
Reviewed 13 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

people found this review helpful

Such a peaceful way to spend a few days on the north shore. Far enough away from town to not be busy but close enough that it was only a short drive to the shops to gather any supplies I needed.

The sound of the waves was such a nice way to fall asleep and to wake up to and, with the whales frolicking straight out the front of the cottage and the turtles swimming around on the shoreline, it was an absolute paradise which I would be happy to return too.

I only wish I had more time there.

Thanks Ruben for showing me around, look forward to seeing you again mate.
