Located off the beaten path on East Oahu, and tucked snugly between the Ko'olau mountains and the sleepy shores of Punalu'u, this open concept studio offers a charming large bedroom and luxurious bathroom, where you can relax in beauty and comfort.
Sits on one acre of grassy land in the country and is surrounded with tropical beauty. The land is shared with the cottage and caretaker. Close to beach, but it's not ideal as a swimming beach. Also great views of mountains. The home is well loved and cared for and presented in a cozy, used, at home feel.
Washer and dryer, parking, fire pit and star gazing. Lounge chairs, beach towels and beach umbrella.
Interaction with guests
Caretaker shares property and is located on the ground level of the same building and is available as needed by phone when they are not on site. The yard care is extensive and you will likely cross paths while the caretakers are attending to the property and grounds. You are renting the upstairs of the two story section of the home. The two houses are joined with a common lanai. Lots of parking space on the back lawn makes for a relaxing and private feeling for coming and going.
Other things to note
Beaches are all along the surrounding area. Hiking trails nearby boast spectacular views!
Household Garbage: Any food waste must be wrapped in garbage bags and kept in the outdoor garbage bins daily. Food waste left inside the homes in Hawaii are invitations to unwanted pests. Please do not put anything down the sink that can clog or this will be cause for a charge on your damage deposit. Take the trash to the bins which are located across the lane and by the pond. The caretakers will take the bins out to the curb for pickup.
Air Conditioning: The air conditioner is not meant to run 24/7 and must be turned off when you are away from the home. The air conditioning works best if all of the windows and doors are shut. It is a simple Start/Stop button. Authorized management will enter home and turn it off if found left on and no one is home.
Remote Controls: An AC remote that is lost is $100 and TV remote that is lost is $75. Replacement costs are high due to the cost of a technician that has to program the remote specifically.
Screen Doors: When opening the screen door please make sure to push on the white frame around the screen and not the screen itself. If a screen is pushed through or damaged, a $50 repair fee will be assessed.
Beach Items: Feel free to use anything that you see outside or in the brown bin between the two houses.
Quiet and Peaceful Abode: Quiet hours are 9pm as it is a family neighborhood. No smoking allowed in or within fifty feet from lodging. Smoking is not allowed on the patios.
Self Checkout: 11am. If you strip the bed, leave sheets on bed so cleaner can easily know which go with which bed. Throw away food waste in outside trash bin. Please make sure to turn off AC unit. Leave the key inside on the table with the door unlocked behind you.

I am from the hot state of Arizona and I love it! Sunny, warm and beach places like Hawaii are magical places to visit and live. I have been managing the properties for my husband's sister there for three years now. The local beaches and hikes are amazing. Shopping is also something that is great to do on the island. I love spending time with my husband and family. We are so blessed!
