Nalo Cottage is a private, secluded one bedroom garden cottage, half a block from one of the best beaches in Hawaii. We are located in a quiet, family neighborhood still evocative of old Hawaii. The comfortable, spacious cottage is detached from the main house. It has 10 foot high ceilings, 760 square feet of living space, and an exclusive outdoor patio. The cottage is equipped with wifi, basic cable, coffee, tea, linens, bath towels, beach towels and chairs, boogie boards and beach gear.
The cottage is furnished with vintage Koa wood furniture and Hawaiian memorabilia. Other furnishings are new, including a king bed and a queen sleeper sofa.
There is a new air conditioner in the bedroom.
For guests with small children, we provide a Graco pack n' play, high chair and beach toys.

We are Hawaiians at heart. For more than 15 years, we have been visiting all the islands, looking for the perfect spot to call home. We have fallen in love with Waimanalo Beach. It is off the beaten path, yet it is close to Honolulu, Kailua and Waikiki. We love the nurseries, farm fresh produce and eggs, our neighbors, and of course our spectacular beach. Terri is a gardener and writer, and Hal loves airplanes, woodworking and guitars.
