Koi Pond Cottage

Aloha! We are a boutique agency on the island of Oahu that has been in business for over 30 years. Our staff is located in Hawaii and very familiar with all the properties. We would love to help you find the perfect home for your Hawaiian Vacation – the right house, in the right location, at the right price! Though we are not permitted to list our direct phone line on VRBO or Homeaway ads, you can reach Hawaii Beach Homes© directly by clicking the “Contact Manager” button below. We look forward to hearing from you.

$225 Special!

Charming Hawaiian style beachside one bedroom cottage with loft. Located on the North Shore coast line known as the surfing capital of the world - just 45 minutes to Honolulu and a short drive from historic Haleiwa Town, Waimea Bay, Pipeline and Sunset Beach.

The home itself is a classic example of island charm and there is a very special aura as you walk into this vintage Hawaiian style cottage. To enter you cross over a bridge, which extends over a koi fish pond, and step on to your ocean view deck which is ideal for dining and relaxing. Most guests spend many hours in the day enjoying the serenity of this indoor/outdoor area. The interior is decorated with Hawaiian Koa furniture and original art work by the artist Mar.

For those looking for surf or for a swim-- a number of prime surfing spots are located just in front or to the side of the property - Lani's, Holton's, Jocko's and Chun's Reef. For those looking for a swim or a beautiful beach walk, there are two pristine white sand swimming beaches near the home - Laniakea and Chun's Reef. Laniakea is shown in the pictures attached. As an added bonus, the private beach in front of the home is a favorite spot for large sea turtles who like to bask on the rocks. The sunsets are always breath taking and sometimes you will see turtles swimming in the surf, or dolphins and whales out in distance.

There are two homes on this lot, the other house has long-term tenants that love to share the yard and beachfront with visitors from all over the world.

Rates: $225 - $395 up to 2 guests, $50 each additional guest.
Please note pets are on property, dogs and cats.
This home is not recommended for children. The lanai is elevated and access to the pond is not secured for children.

    Becky M from Anaheim, CA recommends this vacation rental

    Koi Pond Cottage is perfectly located on a quiet private access road between two beautiful beaches within a 5-minute walk. The view from the porch is a partial ocean view as there a second oceanfront house on the same property. The rental exudes the feel of 'old Hawaii' from the wrap around lenai to the furnishings inside. The outdoor bamboo shower (ferns galore!) is a great way to clean up after a day at the
    beach. The cottage is best suited for four guests as the micro loft area with two beds has a steep ladder and is only accessed by crawling under the low ceiling. The comfortable and ample living room where the queen bed is located. There is a separate small double bedroom and bath in the back in addition to the main house. A BBQ, 3 beach chairs and water shoes are provided. Some snorkeling equipment, a beach umbrella and an additional chair is suggested should there be four guests.) As frequent renters of vacation properties, we found this property to be on the pricey side, particularly when discovering that each additional guest over two is charged an additional $50 per night. (We did not read carefully enough when making the original booking). We would highly recommend this property for its beautiful location on the NS, proximity to the beach and the traditional Hawaiian feel.

    We had the most wonderful time at this magically place. So private and secure...our 7 and 10 year olds had the freedom to roam and play. Fell asleep to the crashing waves and tranquil koi pond every night. Guy & Mar were so warm and inviting...even letting us tag along to there Easter Sunday Service! The location is perfectly situated on the north shore, just a short drive to town, groceries and the best surf spots. We look forward to our next stay at the Koi Pond Cottage...hopefully sooner than later!

    Stefanie O recommends this vacation rental

    We loved the Koi Pond Cottage with its beautiful view towards ocean - we were here at whale season and could watch lots of whale activity from the whales in the ocean in the morning and afternoon. What a special place - great hosts who shared the property with us. Guy who was feeding the Koi fish every morning was always there for a lovely chat, was showing us the farmers market to go shopping for fresh fish and veggies and was a great host. The rental was well supplied at our arrival, lots of books to read, towels and beach chairs for beach trips and a great atmosphere on the whole property - we loved it every evening to pull into our driveway. The garden is so inviting with its lovely flowers and the cottage is decorated in a very unique and own charm - just how we loved it. We immediately fell in love with it and it felt like 2nd home! We can highly recommend this place and if we ever come back to Oahu - this would be the place where we would want to stay again.

    As longtime visitors to Hawaii (with family on two islands, we consider it our second home!), we were thrilled to return to what is now our favorite place to stay - the Koi Pond Cottage! As always, the cottage was spotless and the hosts were fantastic (we feel like we're old friends). You can fall asleep and wake up to the sounds of the surf every day, and you're within a short drive (or walk) from town. We will return again and again.

    Koi Cottage is a rustic, charming retreat, but the tropical gardens and ocean view steal the show. We visited in January, so the surf was fantastic and could be heard day and night. We had a lovely, relaxing stay.

    The weather was also lovely and temperate, so the fans were sufficient to keep the cottage cool. We were unable to connect to the wifi, but the cell service worked.

    What a fantastic cottage! We've been coming to Hawaii for decades, and this is by far our favorite place we've stayed. The cottage was clean and surprisingly spacious - plenty of room for two. The view was unparalleled, and you couldn't ask for a better location. The property has its own lava beach (perfect for reading and watching turtles!), and Laniakea Beach is right next door. Just a couple miles from the shops in Haleiwa - if you're up for a workout, you can walk all the way there from the beach. The hosts were friendly and hospitable. We will absolutely be back.

    Step back in time and forget your troubles at Koi Pond Cottage. This is not for those who need night life and the Wai KiKi experience. It is the opposite side of the island for a reason. Bring a good book and an intention to relax. The residnet cats, Micha and Nacho, are there to give an example of how to "hang out" in case you have forgotten what that is like. Guy and Mar are just like the cats...easy going, gracious and hospitable.Seeing sea turtle each morning is an added bonus! We will go back.

    Donna S from Galt, Ca does not recommend this vacation rental.

    We enjoyed our two week stay at the cottage. The location is ideal. You are ten minutes outside of Haleiwa and ten minutes away from Waimea in the opposite direction. The owners live on the property in the front house and are very helpful with places to eat and visit. They maintain a low profile. The cottage is rustic and in need of a professional cleaning. It is small but for a couple it is fine. There is no air conditioning but a ceiling fan and a floor fan was provided. You can hear the ocean waves from the cottage and the view is outstanding. The beach below is where you will find the sea turtles. We counted eleven of them resting on the rocks. Some of the overgrown bushes have blocked the ocean view but it's nothing that can't be fixed.

    a guest from Vancouver, WA recommends this vacation rental

    We had a fantastic stay at this little piece of paradise. North Shore Location: There are awesome wave breaks just outside the rocky shoreline and sea turtles in the morning. It’s only a short walk to two beautiful beaches, Haleiwa is a few miles one direction and Waimea Bay is only a few miles in the other direction. The Cottage: Large open space with lots of natural light and beautiful artwork on the walls. The Lanai is fantastic and faces the ocean. Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner or Drinks all work well on this Lanai! The Koi Pond is alive with colorful fish and chirping birds in the trees. The Residents: Guy and Mar are great souls, were fun to chat with and very helpful during our stay. Julio, the dog, is easy going and sweet. The cats, Nacho and ????, may be the friendliest cuddliest cats we have ever met. This place is close to everything and yet separated enough for you to truly relax and enjoy a peaceful paradise. We will be back next year. Thank You!

    I am usually someone that can't sit still, I work big hours, managing my business and running a family. This property was the ultimate place to relax and unwind. As I was recovering from major surgery, I needed somewhere tranquil and peaceful. This gorgeous place was just that and more. So close to the historic township of Haleiwa, so all amenities were catered for. The hosts were delightful and generous without being intrusive. I am planning an annual trip, as it has made me aware that 2 weeks of paradise is so good for the soul. Thank you for sharing your stunning home with us!!!

    We traveled to Hawaii for a friend's wedding and spent a terrific 10 days at the cottage. We enjoyed every minute of our stay. The cottage is as pictured, but pictures cannot effectively convey the sheer beauty of the location. We spent a major portion of our visit sitting on the Lanai with the magnificent view of the ocean. We took a day trip to Waikiki Beach and could not wait to get back to the North Shore and the cottage. I would recommend the cottage to anyone who wants a beautiful, tranquil location away from the hustle and bustle and crowds that Honolulu has become. This spot is very special and we will be back !!

    My wife and I absolutely loved our stay at Koi Pond Cottage. We stayed for 5 nights with our 15 month old son (who just loved the pond, the big yard, and the rock pools down the front) and feel its the most relaxing place we've stayed. Mar and Guy, who live in the house at the front, are absolutely lovely hosts, and we really enjoyed getting to know them during our stay. The cottage was so homely, beautifully kept, and we'll sure miss waking up every morning with views out to the ocean. Was just perfect!

    The cottage was perfect for my husband and I to escape the Seattle drizzle for a few days! We loved walking on Turtle Beach, watching the surfers, and the giant waves. One night it rained and we just sat on the Lanai and enjoyed the view. The cabin has a great Hawaiian feel to it. Very comfortable. This is a guest house and Guy and Mar live in the main house. Very nice people that give you your space but are also very welcoming. We enjoyed the visits from their Dog and cats. My husband isn't really a cat person, but even he enjoyed their company. Overall a great vacation. 5 drive from Haleiwa, 25 min drive to Turtle Bay, and walking beaches within walking! Thank you Guy and Mar, we had a wonderful time and will be returning for sure!

    My partner Colleen and I recently stayed at the Koi Pond cottage.
    It looks good in the photos but they don't do justice to the slice of paradise that it is. Great surf beach on either side and in the right swell a break straight out the front. The cottage itself is beautifully constructed from native timber and the wrap around verandah ( sorry, Lanai) is so comfortable to while away an afternoon.
    The extensive library is a bonus, lovely to kick back and enjoy the sea air and warm weather with a good book. Highly recommended.

The owners were helpful with recommendations. If they recommend a surf lesson with Sergio DO IT! This place was great for my husband and but would have been great for our kids. They could have stayed in the loft. There is separate room with a toilet that would have been great for grandparents! Outdoor shower was fun too.Highly recommend!

    Richard G from indianapolis , IN recommends this vacation rental

    The Koi pond cottage is a pleasent escape from the busy craziness of Haleiwa traffic. This place offers comfort like visiting family who have opened their personal space for you to enjoy. If you visited your grand mother or cousin and would be quick to compare their housing to a fancy hotel you will be disappointed at the casual openness offered here. Mar and Guy are exceptional, well traveled people who are opening their private space. When the koi pond cottage is rented you are entering their personal property which they share with you. While I thought I was prepared for this reality the experience of getting to know them was a treat I was not anticipating. They are wonderful hosts and I'm grateful for their hospitality. The visitor needs to know this place, while filled with loving memories and beautiful views and incredible sounds, is dated from a decoration perspective. It feels like stepping back to a time when things were less flashy and high end was yet to become vogue. If your expectation is beautiful views and 4-5 star physical surroundings it would be best to look on as only the views will leave you stunned, in a very good way. It was hot while I visited in June 2015. The outside breeze was minimal causing me to rely on the ceiling fan and another portable fan, suffice it to say I got hot and would fine that I appreciated the comfort of the AC in the car, but that meant dealing with traffic. This is a place to escape, leaving many current earthly vices behind. If that appeals to you you shouldn't be disappointed.

    This was the second year in a row I stayed at the adorable Koi Pond Cottage and it was just as wonderful as I remembered! Actually it may have been better.. last year I divided my stay on Oahu between the cottage and a fancy Waikiki hotel. But this time I stayed the whole ten days in the cottage, which just shows how much I enjoyed it before. I actually missed it when I went to the hotel.

    The location is ideal, especially for lovers of the local wildlife like me. I even got to see a monk seal in the tide pools this time! And the hosts, Guy & Mar, could not be more gracious.

    I hope to be able to make this an annual visit for years to come!

    This is one of the best beach spots we have ever experienced. The cottage itself is so private with a spectacular view. The inside is comfortable and has everything you need and the outdoor space extends the living outside with more comfortable seating. The beach is rocky but provides whale watching, sea turtles and tide pools filled with small reef fish. Two sandy beaches are just a few minutes walk away. The owner was friendly, helpful and available when needed. I would definitely recommend this piece of paradise!

    a guest from Chico, CA recommends this vacation rental

    The setting was gorgeous. Lush plants and flowers surrounding the beach cottage and the view of the ocean and waves were beautiful. We really enjoyed the convenience of a kitchen. One main grocery shop after we arrived in Honolulu and we were set for the week. Loved the outdoor shower and the privacy with a detached bedroom and bath. Plenty of room to find a quiet retreat either down at the beach or on the lanai. The North Shore allows you to get away from the commercialized city but close enough to drive in for entertainment and nightlife. Guy and Mar were gracious hosts. The only thing that would have made it better was if the beds were a little more comfortable, nothing that spoiled our visit. Hope to stay there again soon. Mahalo

    We had the pleasure of staying in the Koi Pond Cottage for a month and there are no words to describe this slice of heaven on Oahu. We have been to all the islands and Maui was always our favorite until now....The North Shore was fabulous and exactly what we needed. Guy and Mar are wonderful hosts and we even found we have shared connections. The cats and dog were an added bonus. The cottage had everything we needed. We were in want of nothing. Our goal is to come back yearly!

    It is hard to describe a place that feels like home the moment you enter it. However, that is how we all felt at Koi and Ginger Cottage. It was a place that had a great, positive vibe. We enjoyed the garden and the walk to the tide pools to watch the turtles and it is an easy walk to beaches on either side of the property for swimming, surfing, etc. Marilyn and Guy were very hospitable and respectful of our privacy but available if we had questions. We loved our experience and plan to return.

    This location was ideal as it was quiet and near several wonderful beaches. Every morning at low tide several sea turtles would sun themselves in the nearby tide pools. The cottage is charming and naturalistic. The cottage has screen doors and windows all the way around. With the sound of geckos and the koi pond one feels he/she is truly experiencing a Hawaiin lifestyle. Guy, our host, and his wonderfully friendly pets made one feel right at home.

    Having never been to Hawaii and only ever dreaming of coming to these magnificent Islands I had the most exceptional visit ever.
    Having been ill for so long and for filling my bucket list This home provided me with the true Hawaiian experience.
    I wanted to get to know the locals not up for the true touristy experience i wanted to know what it would be like to live in Hawaii.
    I was not disappointed .
    The owners made us most welcome and and their house sitters when away.
    everything was so close to town the Honu the beaches even a monk seal.
    The cottage simple and full of local knowledge in books and paintings that lined the walls
    The history of the cottage and surrounding area.
    I truly git to have the full North Shore experience.
    Thank you so much we will be coming back
    All my friends in Australia Loved the photos i sent and have all asked where i stayed. They all want the Koi Cottage experience I had .

    As soon as I arrived I knew I wasn't going to want to leave! The Koi Pond Cottage is in a word, ideal.
    It looks exactly like the pictures, which is always a relief, yet somehow, in some way I can't explain, it was even better than I expected.
    For me the location was perfect, I'm a former Hawaii resident and it was near every where on the North Shore I wanted to be. The property is beautiful the views are amazing, and you can hear the ocean all night.
    Also, the Tuckers are warm, welcoming, gracious hosts and cannot wait to return!

    This was the perfect location- smack dab between Turtle Beach and Chun's Reef. It's your own little slice of secluded paradise. The rocks make it so that no one from the sandy beach make it to your location. It was amazing to sit on the porch and watch the huge waves. Going to sleep and awakening to the sound of the ocean can't be beat. If you are detered by having property owners at your location, don't make it stop you from booking Koi Cottage. Guy and Mar were very nice and helpful while yet being respectful of our privacy. We saw sea turtles every day and even had a hawaiian monk seal rest in the rocky cove at our beach. Gorgeous sunsets, huge waves, amazing view. I was pleasantly surprised by the cottage. It was roomer than I expected. We were greeted with fresh flowers that made the whole cottage smell heavenly. Everything was super clean, a glorious ocean breeze blowing through the open windows, lush tropical garden, and trickling Koi pond. There was no lacking items. Tons of seating both in and outdoors. Well appointed kitchen. Loads of towels. It was truly relaxing and quite comfortable. It was difficult to leave. We traversed the whole island several times over. This by far is the best place to be.

    The location of this rental is hands down lovely with a grand view of the North Shore's big surf. The cottage itself needs a spiffing up...indoor shower and loft and annex bed. Part of the ambiance of the property is the Koi Pond which surrounds half the cottage. Along with the pond comes the rascal mosquitoes. Guess they are impossible to control. The owners and their darling dog and cats were memorable.

    Overall we loved Koi Pond Cottage and our stay there. I gave it a "3" on general condition because the microwave was broken and the cottage was more cluttered with books and things than I would have normally enjoyed. This also influence the cleanliness of the cottage - the general appearance was okay but because it was so cluttered with things I did wonder how well anyone could get in and clean the place. Having said all this, Guy promptly refilled the propane for the BBQ and there is nothing that can spoil the ambience and views of the ocean from Koi Pond Cottage which we found incredibly relaxing. It is also a great location - it cannot be beat. I would return again I just wish the place had less books; shell leis etc so the inside could be as relaxing as the outside.

    This was our 3rd stay at Koi Pond and for good reason. The Tucker's are like family to us after the years of coming here and there is more Aloha here than any other place we have stayed.I personally have been coming to Hawaii almost twice a year for 20 years and have been in my share of beach rentals. This is by far the most special place at least for my Husband, who is an avid surfer, and me to stay.We unfortunatly could not book our entire 2 week vacation here and had to leave and go to another place for a few nights and boy did we miss this place. We came back to see the Tucker's and have dinner with them because we missed them and their beautiful home so much! We highly recommend it!

    From the very beginning Sarah with Hawaii Beach Homes helped my very frustrated husband and I find our home with patience and grace. Once we got in we were instantly comfortable and felt like we had landed right where we belonged. Guy and Mar were perfect hosts and gave us all the privacy we needed along with helpful advice when we turned to their experience. When our friends stopped by to pick us up or meet us for outings they were all jealous of the amazing place. They all vowed to book it instead of the ones they had currently for their next stay.

    We had a fabulous stay here, it has everything you need to feel at home. The views and gardens are beautiful, the owners friendly but not intrusive (including their pets). We arrived late at night but had no problems finding the cottage and the lights had been left on for us. There was plenty to do near by and we found some great places for breakfast in Haleiwa. The Shrimp trucks heading the other dircection from Haleiwa towards the polynesian culture centre were also great - Giovanni's being the most famous. And if you ever watched Lost, a 10-20 minute walk down the beach, past the turtles and you are on one of the beaches they filmed at! We loved every minute of our stay, if we go back to Oahu we will be checking availability here before we book our flights, we wouldn't want to stay anywhere else.

    After 3 nights in Waikiki and a 7 day Hawaiian Island cruise, we spent 5 nights in this little slice of paradise. The cottage is in a great location and the property itself is absolutely lovely! Black lava rock beach with sandy beaches close by, daily visits by multiple magnificent turtles (don't tell all the turtle watchers on the sandy beach!!), waking up to the sound of the ocean and the koi pond, the experience of an outdoor shower, sitting on the veranda and counting the surfers out catching waves in the morning and seeing the stars through the palm trees at night - if you want a real taste of Hawaii this is it! The property owners Guy and Mar are great and you will have all the privacy you want. Can only hope to make it back there some day!

    Nothing like a cup of tea and a tropical breeze to start your morning.. True Paradise is found here..This was our 2nd time here and we just booked it again for November.. I have been all over the islands and this is our favorite area to stay. WE can sit for hours and just watch the waves from the porch or walk down to the beach and check out the tidal pool and Hubby can jump in and go surfing.. It is a very special place. WE just like to hang out and relax and not do to much site seeing.. since we have been so many times it is nice to find a place that you are comfortable enough to just be content there. The owner's of the property are wonderful and really make you feel welcome to share their beautiful piece of Paradise..Oh did I mention the amazing Koi pond they have.. Wow and to hear how they made it is remarkable.. Definately a thumbs up and 10 toes too!!

    We spent 4 days on the North Shore and we were so sad when we had to leave! Secluded enough to have almost absolute privacy if wanted, but close enough to town to be convenient, this rental is in the perfect location.
    We visited with the turtles, played in the waves at Waimea Bay, swam in the falls at Waimea Valley, and took long drives along the shoreline.
    We visited other areas of Hawaii during our vacation, and this remains one of our favourites.

    My wife and I chose Koi Pond Cottage for the second part of our honeymoon (after a week in New York prior). The property was amazing and we could feel the 'aloha' as soon as we walked in the door.
    Upon arrival the property was super clean, breezy, eclectically decorated and very welcoming. The view from the verandah was amazing as we saw the 10 foot waves through the palm trees. The garden was lush and tropical and the koi pond was great (look out for 'big guy'!).
    The property is well appointed with all the furniture and appliances you could need plus kitchen items, laundry, TV/DVD, wifi, etc. There is heaps of outdoor seating, beach chairs and umbrella, BBQ, etc. There's also secure off-street parking. It property is completely self contained if you want it!
    The property owners, Guy and Mar were lovely and helpful. They were there when we needed but left us to enjoy our stay alone. Their dog Julio was a welcome visitor each morning!
    The private beach at the bottom of the garden was a bonus and sharing it with the resident green sea turtles was absolutely amazing!
    For surfers (like me) the breaks of Laniakea, Chun's Reef and Jocko's are right on your door step. The rest of the North Shore breaks from Haleiwa to Sunset are a 5-10 minute easy drive away.
    We loved going to sleep to the sound of the ocean each night and waking up to an ocean view in the morning was awesome.
    It was very hard leaving Koi Pond and we know we'll be back one day. Koi Pond felt like our new home rather than a holiday rental!
    Mahalo!

    Love the place. Visited Waikiki and looped around the island 3 times and realized we had the perfect spot. Waves were high, definitely for experience surfer, which I can't wait to be. Waikiki..tourist trap, will not be returning there anytime soon. Kailua, love it, best restaurant called the Gorve and people-awesome! Mar, the owner there was very gracious and kind.

    I really couldn't ask for a more relaxing vacation home. From the moment you step foot on the property, it's pure paradise. The slat windows let in soft ocean breezes and tropical floral scents. The cottage is surrounded by lush green foliage and so many hibiscus you can't count them all. Some are nearly the size of a dinner plate. they are quite magnificant. There are a few nightly Gecko visitors who keep the moths in check. All were friendly as can be. We were never disturbed by the property owners, even though they were close by if we needed anything. Sitting on the Lanai with a cup of Kona coffee, watching the waves crash ashore. Who could really as for a better stay? I can't wait to visit again. The only thing they need is a hammock. Then it would be perfect. Aloha!

    We couldn't think of a better place to spend 3 weeks on the North Shore. The cottage was charming & comfortable, location was perfect with a spacious lanai and a great view of the fabulous garden through to the ocean. We ate every meal outside with the resident geckos. The spectacular beach out front often had visiting turtles, monk seals and the tidal pools were like an aquarium. We never used the bathroom shower because the hot outdoor shower was way more fun. Our hosts Guy & Mar we're more than accommodating and their dog Julio often came by for a friendly visit. No contest, best place on the North Shore. We'll be back.

    We couldn't have been happier with our time at Koi Pond Cottage. On arrival Guy took us down to the ocean and pointed out a group of 14 green turtles resting on the shore, less than 100' from our porch. Quite a start to our stay! The location of the cottage was ideal for exploring the North Shore community and beaches, with several local Farmers Markets available to buy fresh seafood and produce. The privacy of the cottage and beach was great, the North Shore can tend to get overrun with tourists. The well supplied kitchen came in handy for preparing several great meals of local fish and vegetables. All told, a great experience, our thanks to Guy and Mar for providing such a warm and relaxing place to stay. Thanks, Tim & Susan

    We absolutely loved Koi Pond Cottage. My husband and I stayed with our 8 year old and it is hard for me to imagine a place that would be more perfect for us. Everything about the place is breathtakingly beautiful without being the slightest bit overdone. We felt at home the moment we arrived. Our son adored the loft bed, which gave him his own private club house space, while being close to us. We got up every morning and walked down to the rocky beach which had some of the best beach combing we found on our whole trip. We could watch great surf action from our porch from the moment we woke up to sunset. I am a huge plant lover and gardens on the property clearly show the touch of the property owner who is a wonderful artist. (Her paintings in the cottage are part of its overwhelming charm). The sea turtles that would show up in afternoon were a total delight. My husband was also thrilled to see a humpback whale breach just past our beach front. My son love watching the koi who greeted us when we came home, hoping it was feeding time. Our last night, we had a hard time getting to bed because we didn't want to have to leave. This place is truly a gem I only hope that we will get a chance to return. Mahalo to Guy and Mar for creating such a wonderful place.

    Our family of four stayed for 8 nights at Koi Pond Cottage in Haleiwa just last week. Although the pictures online looked good you never know what you might find when you arrive so we were ecstatic when the reality was even better than the pictures promised. The cottage is so comfortable and relaxing with a beautiful view of the ocean and, while we were there, the huge waves! Waking up in the morning to the view of the backyard and the water was wonderful. The main room of the cottage is comprised of three walls of louvered windows with pull-down roman blinds so when the blinds are all open it is like bringing the outside in. There are 2 doors to the back lanai and the trees, plants and flowers are beautiful; not to mention the great koi pond filled with beautiful fish and greenery. There is also a separate bedroom/bathroom steps from the main cottage. We felt very safe and the home is off of the highway so very private too. The owners are friendly and accommodating, while at the same time giving us privacy, providing recommendations for restaurants and other things to do in the area when we asked. Haleiwa is a great little town and we loved walking around and eating there; especially at Cafe Haleiwa and Konos; our two favorites! We hope to be able to return to Koi Pond Cottage again and will if we can make it happen!

    Loved the property and the location. Loved the tide pools and walking to local beaches. Very comfortable bed and loved the decor, lanai and Koi Pond.
    I would have liked the ceiling fan to have been cleaned. My daughter has allergies to dust mites and it was covered in dust and I couldn't use it. I thought about asking for a ladder so that I could clean it, but didn't. The Koi Pond is lovely, but it did create a haven for mosquitos, so I didn't get to use the lanai in the evening as I would have loved to eat out there. Guy and Mar were very nice. We didn't see them much, but when we did, they were lovely. The house was bigger then I expected, which was a nice surprise. We weren't there much, because we were at the beaches, but when we were, it was a great place to hang, cook in the kitchen and grill with the beautiful star filled sky. I would highly recommend this property!

    Location on North Shore was nice, very accessable to all points onthe island. View of ocean was obstructed by owners residence, not what we expected from the pictures.

Property was well maintained and the owners were very pleasant. Cabin had a musty smell, not fresh.

    Ryan L from Ocean City, nj recommends this vacation rental

    For those looking for a different kind of Oahu vacation, separate from the big, high-priced resorts of Waikiki, then the Koi Pond Cottage in Haleiwa is for you. Set back behind the main living quarters, the cottage still has a great ocean view, and a wonderful porch to sit and view it from while enjoying your morning Kona coffee. It has a nice, open air floor plan and we enjoyed the outside tiki hut shower very much. The bed was comfortable, and we enjoyed the most restful sleep of our vacation here. The house is inside a gated property, which helps create a quiet solitude. Guy and Mar were gracious hosts and their 2 friendly dogs would greet us every morning. The town of Haleiwa, a quaint village with surf shops and great places to eat, is about 2 miles away. You can take the bus, but having a rental car is a good choice for getting around, since the bus can get crowded and the schedule isn't always easy to predict. Some of the best surf beaches in the world are within walking distance (a solid walk), or a short drive if you have a car. There's a nice beach for lounging just a few hundred feet from the house and sea turtles are spotted there sunning themselves almost daily. Or drag lounge chairs down to the rocks right in front of the house (there's a small sitting area that's very nice). We watched the sun set from this spot every night. As mentioned in the headline of this review, this is NOT your traditional resort stay. Haleiwa is NOT Waikiki. In fact, there are no major resorts in the area. You're living like a local. Visit a farmer's market for great local produce. I recommend a breakfast burrito from Kono's and maybe the best Thai food you'll ever have at Opal Thai. The popular Ted's Bakery is about 5 miles away. The people are friendly, the beaches aren't crowded, and the surfing is incredible, even if you just want to watch. And that's exactly why the Koi Pond Cottage and it's location are so special.

    • Manager Responded on 2/26/2013

      Thank you, Ryan, what a fantastic review! Opal Thai is delicious, and the farmers market on Sundays is good for both produce and meals (next time try the farmers market pizza, made with local tomatoes and basil then grilled...yum). Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes

    Since we come from mountain country, we were thrilled to find a small cozy, very comfortable Hawaian style "cabin" next to the ocean only a couple of miles from a fun historic town. We relished sitting in the lounge chairs on the private beach watching the sun go down or spotting the big turtles right in front. But we also enjoyed breakfast or cocktails on the large lanai wrapping the house when the rain fell. The owners of the property, Guy and Mar were wonderful hosts and helpful in many ways.

    We loved the Koi Pond Cottage. The minute we walked in the door we felt at home and all of our busy life was left behind. Guy and Mar are the perfect hosts - there when needed and allowing us our privacy. Everything that we needed was provided in the cottage. We enjoyed exploring the island - this is a perfect location to do so - and yet, we were the happiest when we returned home to our little bit of paradise... sitting on the porch watching the surf, sunsets on the beach, the short walk to turtle beach to see the turtles romp in the surf and say 'hello' to Brutus, a large male turtle who rests each evening on the beach, and we enjoyed visits from the pups and our favorite gecko who often joined us for breakfast and dinner on the porch railing. We returned home with a piece of Mar's art - a painting of the cottage which is hanging in our dining room to remind us of a place that we will surely return to one day. Thank you Guy and Mar for sharing your little bit of paradise with us. Pat & Keith

    My buddy and I stayed at the Koi Pond Cottage for three nights and we really enjoyed it. I LOVED the location--so close to the best that the North Shore has to offer. The cottage ambiance is really nice; you never forget that you're on a beautiful tropical island. My only complaint would be the lack of air conditioning. I know it can be fun to leave the windows and doors open at night and hear the ocean and crickets, but sometimes it got very humid and stuffy in the house, with little relief. Sleeping was difficult sometimes. Other than that, I would definitely recommend this location to friends planning on staying on the North Shore.

    Absolutely wonderful! We have stayed in several vacation rentals in north shore, and this is BY FAR OUR FAVORITE! This home has a beauty and spirit that welcomes you the minute you walk in the door. True Aloha. It has a warm and welcoming personality and
    you know you have found a home in paradise! It is clean, well appointed and filled with Mar's beautiful artwork. You can tell that the owners truly love and care for this special place. It was the perfect size for our family of 4. We also rented the extra
    bedroom which is unattached, but right there. Perfect for mom and dad, while the kids loved the loft. This cozy guest house sits on an oceanfront property nestled in beautiful tropical landscaping behind the owner's home. Guy and Mar are terrific people. Friendly
    and helpful, always ready with a "hello" and there if we needed anything, yet we still felt we had complete privacy. I cant thank you both enough for the best stay EVER and hope to return as soon as possible! Location is also fantastic, right next to Chun's
    Reef. A great beach and good summer surfing. This is often where the best surf schools set up in summer. I definitely recommend taking a lesson. You will LOVE it! My husband and I are both 50- and total beginners. Kids are quick naturals. Any age, Go FOR IT!
    They say the best surfer in the world is the one having the most fun, so I guess that makes us pros! Any way, we are all hooked for life! The beach on the other side is filled with sea turtles and you will see them every day. Magical memories. Be sure to check
    out the farmers markets in Wailua and Haleiwa and pie at Ted's is a must, so is the garlic shrimp. Kua Aina, the best burger on the island. Aoki's shave ice, yum. Try the "local mix" extra li hing mui. Killer! Hawaii beach homes is also a great company. We

    We stayed at the Koi Pond Cottage for ten days with our three teenaged children and had a wonderful time. The cottage is adorable, and was roomy enough for us all. We loved listening to the rain at night and sitting on the porch with our coffee each morning. Guy and Mar are very gracious hosts, they made us feel like we were at home. A big plus was the daily visits from Julio and Remy, the Tucker's dogs, as we were missing our dogs back at home. There are two great beaches walking distance, so parking was never an issue. We would definitely stay here again.

    This cottage is so homey and comfortable, with a covered veranda where we spent many midday hours watching the surf (and the remarkable souls who play in those big waves!). The caretakers were friendly and helpful. We LOVED the outdoor shower, and the private beach and lawn chairs. I would unhesitatingly recommend this place to any couple or small family.

    Guy and Mar are first rate! The place was great. Wish internet was a bit better, but other than than, almost perfect setting in paradise.
