* Garden Cottage - Honolulu

Guest Rating:

Vacation rental cottage. Sleeps 6, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms. No pets allowed.

Honolulu, HI 96821 United States

Shaded by a glorious banyan tree, this home feels like an elegantly decorated tree house only steps away from the ocean. Decorated in an elegant hawaiian style, the property has a lush courtyard garden under a large banyan tree. It is idealy located, permitting access to Waikiki and all it has to offer, while living in a tranquil hawaiiian home. Conveniently located about 10 minutes outside of Waikiki, 5 minutes from Kahala Mall and 10 minutes to Hanauma Bay.

This home also has access to a large gated pool area that is shared with a few of your neighboring homes on the estate. The water in front of the home is shallow and calm, which is good for children. Surfing is possible during the summer months in front of the home if you walk out past the reef where it gets deeper. Amazing snorkeling is just a few minutes up the road at world famous Hanauma Bay.

    The E. Garden Cottage was nicely setup and a great location to boot. As stated in the Banyan Estate review and all other estate property reviews some TLC could be used for this building. The dishwasher was not working, no coffee maker and mold in the tubs.

    LISA C recommends this vacation rental

    Our family of 3 stayed in the Garden Cottage for 4-nights in March and we were very happy with the property. The layout of the unit is open, we had plenty of room and it was easy to stay organized. It was also great to have our own patio, access to a shared pool/hot tub and only be a few steps away from the beach. We enjoyed being outside of Waikiki, but still close to attractions, restaurants, and shopping. For us, it was the perfect combination. We had a private space, but could still socialize with the neighbors at the pool. In fact, we only spent the first half of our vacation here and we'd wished we'd stayed more nights. The only cons: the property is off of a very busy street and you can hear some traffic noise. Also, the kitchen was a little lacking (it could use some better cooking pans/skillets and more silverware). That said, we'd still recommend the cottage and we'd stay here again.

    The property is managed by Hawaii Beach Homes and they were very accommodating. They provided us with a mobile app to assist with an easy check-in and check-out.

    a guest from Portland, OR recommends this vacation rental

    There were so many positives about the house and area. You can't ask for a nicer location, both in setting and ease of getting around the island. The pool and hot tub were wonderful and the close beach access made it very special. The house could really use a deep cleaning though. There were a lot of cobwebs on lights and the walls. The bed pillows had seen better days and we wound up buying new ones as we couldn't sleep on the ones there. Other than that it was a really enjoyable stay and a truly picture perfect setting.

    Robin J from Harlingen, Texas recommends this vacation rental

    We loved the peacefulness of the place. It was just what we were looking for. There were some cleaning or attention to the details that might make things better. Such as a pool person to care for the outside. Also someone that takes a little more pride in dusting and cleaning. Dust on the walls near the bed, mold in the bathroom and dirty towels left in bathroom. Things we can over look, but maybe not so good for a different person. Also maybe a little more outside clean up in the patio area where that washer and dryer is located. Also some light for that area, people are gone during the day sight seeing, so night time doing laundry makes more sense to us older people. LOL A pool person needs to check around the area and make sure the pool vacuum picker upper needs to be repaired. Lots of debris in the pool.
    You asked, but I want you to know we enjoyed the time there. Thank you for your continued support while we were there. especially when I forgot the code , you saved me from waking up some tired old people. Appreciatted it very much.

    The house was nice and comfortable, decorated nicely with all the necessities. Close to Waikiki and shopping. Neighbors were noisy a couple times, but otherwise quiet and peaceful. The neighbors had dogs that barked some and I managed to step into their left overs. Can't blame the dogs for that. Overall the home was a decent choice and we would recommend to others.

    My family of 4 stayed at the garden cottage for 5 days. It was perfect for us. My grandson loved the pool and we loved the full, well stocked kitchen with plenty of dishes, pots and pans, 2 baths and comfortable living room. We were happy to find pool toys and beach toys, including beach towels. There were 2 barbecues there, one briquet and one gas bbq. The banyon tree in the back yard was so much fun for the 7 year old grandson that is home to lots lizards and birds nesting. It was really windy during our stay so the beach wasn't as much fun as it could have been. We had a wonderful vacation and will definately be back.

    My family and two friends stayed here for a week during our vacation. The cottage was relatively clean, functional and met most of our needs.

    The one issue I had during my stay was the lack of parking management. This cottage shares its parking with three other units on the property. When all units are occupied the parking lot is well beyond it's capacity and with no assignments it's first come.

    I really enjoyed my stay. The property is remote and quiet even though near a busy expressway.

    Eugene O from Glen Ellyn, IL does not recommend this vacation rental.

    The mildew smell almost knocked me over on entry (no worries we aired the place out) he carpet was filthy in the bedrooms, and the bedding was NOT clean either. We had sewer flies (that the rental people insisted were mosquitos -NOPE, SEWER FLIES!)ants nesting in the bath rugs and elsewhere - and I won't even go in to the two creatures we had to kill / capture when we first got there - cleaning people must have left the doors wide open. We hated the place but were rather stuck once we got there - rental managements solution was to give us a can of flying insect spray and two new bathmats - seriously? I'm not one to post bad ratings, but trust this rating is going VIRAL!

    • Manager Responded on 4/30/2014

      Aloha Eugene, Thank you for taking some time to review your experience about this tropical location. In efforts to help the issue of a damp bathmats management brought over a new replacement. In regards to help solving the bug issue insect spray can help. Fruit flies can contribute to unwanted pests very easily by leaving food open for multiple days as well as trash. We also have an open door policy with our guests, please contact us. If we don't know its an ongoing issue we can't help solve it. We regularly treat our homes monthly. Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes

    This vacation rental is in a quiet neighborhood with easy access to anywhere you want to go and very close to groceries and Costco. There were a few small issues which we identified upon our arrival and the hot tub was not working. Unfortunately the parts needed could not be found on the island and had to be shipped in. Thanksfully they were able to temporarily fix the hot tub so it warmed to a reasonable temperature and one set of the jets worked for a short time before cutting out but at least we were able to enjoy the hot tub almost every evening of our 12 night stay. All in all a nice cottage, relatively clean with a well equipped kitchen. I wouldn't hesitate to rent this property again or recommend to a friend.

    a guest from Galiano Island, BC recommends this vacation rental

    Our family of 5 stayed in the Garden Cottage for a week, and we enjoyed it very much. The cottage was clean, comfortable and well-equipped. The huge banyan
    Tree outside our door was spectacular--- a beautiful place to relax and appreciate the wonders of Hawaiian nature! The beach was less than a minute's walk, and was very peaceful, natural, with hardly any people there. Even though it is very shallow and not a great swimming beach, it was such a lovely place to sit and watch the sunrise and sunset. Being able to relax quietly on the beach was one of the highlights.
    The swimming pool was wonderful, we used it every day and loved it.
    The only real drawback to this property was the very busy, noisy highway nearby
    Which we could hear from the cottage. The worst part was driving out of the driveway, because the traffic was heavy and fast and there wasn't much room to get out and join the flow of traffic. However, we got used to it, and I'd say we mastered it. There are malls nearby, Whole Foods in one mall, and Foodland in another. Very convenient. Our teenage grandkids really appreciated the malls.
    The man who took care of the place was really nice and helpful.
    The reason I titled this "Unexpected Hideaway" is because, you would never know by driving by on the busy highway, that such a lovely and cozy place existed just off the highway. And the beach's peace and quiet offset the highway noise. It really was a great place for our family to stay...close to amenities but
    A private escape surrounded by trees and natural beauty.

    Lisa S from New Plymouth, New Zealand recommends this vacation rental

    We stayed for 4 nights in the Garden Cottage. At first we found the highway at the end of the drive a bit daunting as we come from a much quieter place BUT soon figured out how to get in and out safely. The shopping centre up the road was very convenient for supplies and restaurants. The compound and cottage itself was quiet and well set out. Beds were comfortable and the kids enjoyed the swimming pool and Jacuzzi. We found some of the dishes and cups were quite dirty and would recommend that mugs be replaced as many were cracked or chipped. However the decor in general was lovely and we really enjoyed ourselves. Being slightly out of town was no problem as (as previously mentioned) the highway was right outside the property and it was a quick trip into Waikiki, Aquarium, Zoo etc. This property would be fantastic if you had several families travelling together or for an occaision such as a reunion or anniversary as you could rent the other homes at the same time and have a wonderful communal but spacious time.

    This is a great location if you want to be away from the crowd, but a quick drive to everything. The cottage was great as you can hit the beach, your own pool and hot tub with out leaving the property. A Strip Mall is with-in walking distance. Will stay at this location on my next stay in Hawai'i.

    a guest from North Hollywood, CA recommends this vacation rental

    We had major problems with the plumbing while we were there. The last two days were spent with a plumbing company digging up the property to clear a tree root from the main line. This greatly affected our visit, as we could not use one of the toilets in the unit. In the middle of the night, we had to walk to another unit (in the pouring rain) to use the toilet. We do not blame the problem on the management company, but it definitely affected our enjoyment of this very nice place. When our visit ended, the problem had still not been completely fixed. But they were working hard to correct the problem.

    The location of the cottage was wonderful and it was a very nice unit. We just wish we hadn't had the plumbing issue.

    • Manager Responded on 12/7/2013

      The root has been cleared and all the plumbing issues have been taken off. We are very sorry that this happened during their stay. They were wonderful guests and we appreciated their patience while we did our best to resolve the problem. Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes

    We enjoyed our stay at the Garden cottage. The overall condition of the unit was good, although one of the
    chairs in the living room was broken and unusable. The cottage needs a deep cleaning. The location was great, but was hard to get out of the driveway because the main street was very busy. The maintenence crew cared for the pool, but never cleaned the deck area. There was debris everywhere.The kitchen was fairly well stocked, i had to call the management company to ask for a bottle opener, and they brought one that same day. The numbers on the microwave are completely worn off, so we just pushed random buttons to use for heating. A few other small issues came up and we will be addressing them with the management company. Overall we had a nice time, and nothing affected our stay in Hawaii.

      We have addressed all issues and have spoken to our cleaning crew and purchased and will be bringing a new microwave to the unit shortly. Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes

    Our family stayed for a week at this property and loved it. Property manager was very friendly and very helpful. Location worked out perfect for us.
    As it says in other comments, there were some issues with ants but I think that's a common problem in most of the first floor/one story buildings. They had sprays so we just used them as needed. Besides that, everything was fine!
    Looking forward to visit Hawaii again would love to stay here as well!

    A very enjoyable stay, close to town and shops. Generally clean and well presented. Could do with some extra linen and pillows if 6 guests were to stay. We used the sofa bed - suggest this be upgraded as the framework is bent and twisted which made it hard to use. Would be happy to return to the cottage in the future for a return vacation.

    The cottage needs a deep cleaning. The fans, air conditioner, base boards,mirrors, and light switches all need to be washed. We dare not turn any of those on because they were so gross. There was also a bad odor. The ad is very misleading...where was the lush garden? In our backyard, we had was a broken down hot tub, tree roots,BBQ, uncoiled garden hose, 2 lounge chairs and a table set. On our last day, we were locked out as the code was blocked. I left a message at the only info I had with me outside and received no response until morning, which was of no help at all. Fortunately, we left a window unlocked & crawled through. We had plenty of ants and cockroaches for inside visitors even though they claim they have a once a month service I am sure there is more that they could choose to do. This is the worst place any of our party has ever stayed in. We will not recommend this place or Hawaii Beach Homes to anyone.

    We found that this cottage occommodated the six of us quite well. There were enough bath & beach towels for us to use. The location was perfect for the activities we did. Wished the pool had been heated, it was too cool to swim in & the private beach would have been more usable. Sand was not easy to walk on & the water was too shallow to swim in & the bottom too mucky to walk out very far. Quite pleased with the cottage itself though. I would definitely stay there again.

    Other than the annoying lack of a corkscrew to open wine, the cottage was generally above our expectations. The cottage seemed larger than pictured on the internet site. A few suggestions: install a shelf in the hall bath so guests don't have to store toiletry items on top of the toilet tank; provide several folding luggage racks so guests don't have to live out of suitcases sitting on the floor (this was particularly hard on my wife with limited bending ability).

    We stayed for 6 nights with our friend family for a summer vacation. The property was only 10 munites from Waikiki by car, only 30 steps to the beach, also very convenient location to the eastside of Oahu, such as Hanauma Bay,Sea Life Park, Kailua Beach, Kualoa Ranch, and many golf courses. And It's also near to H-1 freeway, so Airport, Northshore, Westside of Oahu are also easy to access. The house is equipped with a BBQ grill and a big jacuzzi so we could bath altogether. We have realy wonderful time, except for some cockroach were found which I hope the management company will improve. And one thing to add, the entrance from Kalanianaole Hwy to the property is not outstanding ,so more detailed information would be nice to the traveler. Anyway it's a little thing for the house and location's attraction. I recomend the house for families.

    We loved the location, the privacy, the pool, the hot tub, the giant tree which provided shade for the back yard, the BBQ was great to have. The place doesn't look like much on the exterior, but the interior is well appointed, with new appliances, new TVs, the internet works well, the AC works well but not really needed with all the shade from the big tree. Minor item that could get repaired was the screen door on the living room slider (broken, only 1/2 functional). The kitchen was well equipped, except for shortage of frying pans (there only was one tiny pan) and the good selection of knives could use sharpening. In general only minor negatives, we over-all enjoyed our stay.

    We stayed there in the Paradise for 5 days. It was great. The location was just perfect like stated in the description.
    About the highway noise, from reading previous comments, we were worry about the highway noise, which did not bother us at all during our stay.
    The pool was great although there are leaves in it. We just wonder whether the thing in the bottom of the pool working at all!
    The place is nice and comfy. However be ready to see some tropical pest like cockroach. I guess the manager can't do much about this.
    Three improvements that will make the place closer to be perfect are:
    1. Add a local phone line in the Paradise unit. Not all tourists are from the US and it is roaming charge to use cellphone in the State.
    2. The internet somehow does not work (asking for password but we cannot find one). The admin office said that we don't need a password but there is no connection without asking for a password.

    Joshua H from Branchburg, NJ recommends this vacation rental

    We stayed for 7 nights in March-April 2011 and we had 2 adults and 3 young children and 1 teenager. Overall, the stay was WONDERFUL and FLAWLESS.

    The logistics, staff, and informations were very helpful. It felt like having a second home once we opened the front door.

    The jacuzzi and the pool was the highlight of the property, it was very private yet at the same time it was outdoor next to a wonderful banyan tree.

    You must have a rental car if you want to stay in this property. Once you do have a car, it is conveniently located to Koko Marina where you have wonderful mom and pop shops, wonderful South Shore Fellowship church, supermarket, and nice restaurants, not to mention the Hanauma Bay and Koko head; all in less than 7 miles from the house.

    Couple things that can be enhanced:
    1. Somewhere in the direction should mention the nearest cross street with the traffic light, instead of the development name. It was covered by the bush, and we missed it for another 2 miles looking for the address.
    2. The wi-fi signal is weak, we cannot get the signal even in the bedroom.
    3. The dryer takes a loooong time to dry.
    4. Carpeting in the bedrooms can be replaced.

    These are relatively small things compared to the overall experience, which was very positive. I highly recommend this property.

    Overall the stay was very pleasant. I think the only two negatives were that the cottage had not been cleaned when we arrived at 3PM to check-in. The property manager jumped on it quickly and had a cleaning crew there in 30 minutes. The property was finally able to be used starting at 6PM.

    We were told that the ocean was mild in this location, but envisioned at least enough swell to keep it kind of clean. The water was not very pleasant but I can understand why this is not expressly communicated (and it is a bit subjective :)).

    • Manager Responded on 2/21/2013

      Thank you for your patience with the cleaning crew. Our contract states that if need by we have until 6pm to finish, though 99% of the time our homes are ready by 3pm. The ocean in front of the estate is very shallow and calm for a few hundred yards, which is ideal if you have small children. If you put on reef shoes and walk past the rocky area, the water becomes deep and swimmable. This area is also great for kayaking and stand up paddling. Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes

    Ken l from Wan Chai, StarCrest recommends this vacation rental

    The lcoation is not in front of the beach but one house behind. The path to the beach made us more excited. It is nearly small private beach!
    Also the location is about 1 mile from Kahara mall and a few miles to Hanauma Bay. You cannot expect more for the location. It is close to the major blvd so it is not super serene.
    Overall, we are more than happy for the stay. Definitely go back again:)

    Ramona L from Voorburg, NL recommends this vacation rental

    Our stay at the Banyan tree cottage was very pleasant and we would definitely recommend it to others and would consider returning as well. The location was ideal and the general condition of the home was good.
    A few points of criticism are that the television reception was poor and maybe unnecessarily so since all the necessary equipment for a better reception was available in the home but had not been properly installed as well as there were no instructions as to how to use the tv, remotes or cable boxes. The same thing applies to the use of the microwave. This we also had to figure out by trial and error because a lot of symbols had been erased from the buttons on it and there were no further instructions as to how it worked. In the end we figured it out.
    Finally, the tone on the visitors instructions guide is quite harsh and unfriendly especially the part about having all towels washed on the property before departure or you may be charged a fee. Although I gladly left all towels washed, dried and folded before departure it added to the already long list of chores to do in preparation for departure for my family of five and is actually an added stress factor for travelers. This I thought was unfair seeing that such high cleaning fees are already charged for the use of the home.
    Having said all this, I add that even these points that could be improved did not outweigh our otherwise relaxing and wonderful stay at the cottage.

    • Manager Responded on 8/16/2010

      We're sorry the client found the instructions harsh, we ask the clients to start a load of towels to help out the cleaning staff but it is not required and we have never charged anyone for not doing so. If you find that you are confused by the remote control or kitchen appliances simply call the office, we will gladly come by help out.

    Samantha G from Victoria, BC recommends this vacation rental

    We booked the whole property from March 6-20 2010. Our over all stay was great. The house was close to everything we needed. The beachfront was a bit muddy but nice to have access to. The property located right off the highway and could be noisy at times especially by the pool. Two hot tubs broke down with in the first few days. One was fixed right away and the other didn't work for the rest of our stay which was to bad. The door handle on the master bedroom broke and we were locked in and out a couple times. Someone came by and had a look and said they would replace it the next day. They never came back to repair it and we had to take the door off ourselves to have access to the room for the second week. Other than that we were very happy to be there and can't thank Amanda from Hawaii beach homes enough for all her help with the booking. Thank you!

    • Manager Responded on 2/21/2013

      Thank you for the review, we are very sorry for the problems you had. The door has been fixed, and as the electrical system at the estate could not sustain so many jacuzzis we now have one communal pool and jacuzzi area on the Estate. Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes

    Billy B from Comfort, TX recommends this vacation rental

    Spent week here with another couple--plenty of room and privacy. Clean, well furnished everything as advertised. Convenient to attractions on South and East side, easy driving to North (during other than rush times). I Recommend it, if you have car--nothing in walking distance or very convenient. Be sure and have toiletries for one day, not even small bar of soap. Also plan on some rather picky rules e,g, strip beds, start towels in wash on departure, or pay penalties. Disappointed in maintenance--8-10 lights burned out, bed lamp broken. They replaced couple of bulbs and lamp, left bulbs for me to replace remainder. Notwithstanding, I would recommend to friend, and would stay again.

    • Manager Responded on 2/21/2013

      Thank you for your review. We are sorry for the lack of customer service, our maintanance man should have changed the lightbulbs instead of leaving them for you. We do try to protect guests' privacy, so this could have been the reason he did not enter the house. We do provide all guests with a starter kit that includes 1 roll of paper towels and a new sponge in the kitchen, liquid soap at every sink and in every shower, and 3 rolls of t.p. in every bathroom. If these run out, it is up to the guest to replace their own paper goods. Our move out instructions ask that you leave the bed unmade, no need to strip it, and if possible please start a load of towels. These are requests, there are no penalties if these things are not done. Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Beach House. It was clean, had easy to use amenities, and was spacious. The only drawback is being on a very busy road where it was sometimes hard to get out of the driveway because of rush hour traffic. There was not a lot of highway noise at the house itself, though, which was fortunate.

    We would definitely consider staying there again when we get back to Honolulu.

    The cleaning lady who was there when we arrived was very nice and helpful, by the way.

    • Manager Responded on 2/21/2013

      Thank you for your comments. The easiest way to exit the estate is to wait until the stop lights at the nearby intersection have halted traffic, than you have plenty of time to turn on to Kalanianaole Hwy. Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes

    Amanda was very helpful. She left the directions for the new lock box code and we were able to reach her right away when we had trouble opening it.

    We rented this cottage and loved it. The only short coming was that the beach was muddy, not sandy, but both the pool and hot tub were wonderful. I would recommend it to anyone.

    • Manager Responded on 2/21/2013

      Thanks for your review. It seems that poor weather affected the beach while you were here: usually there is sand, and the ocean in front of the estate is very shallow and calm for a few hundred yards, which is ideal if you have small children. If you put on reef shoes and walk past the rocky area, the water becomes deep and swimmable. This area is also great for kayaking and stand up paddling. Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes

    Then we stayed here @ Garden Cottage and actually we were very satisfied and spent a wonderful time!
    It was a little unconvenient 'cos it was a little far from Waikiki, though. You must have a car to go there.

    Lita A from Vacaville, CA recommends this vacation rental

    This property was very nice and just a short drive form Waikiki. It was great to be far enough away to not battle the traffic and parking. Our backyard with the private jacuzzi was beautiful and had a very tropical feel. The pool on the property was clean and it seemed that we were the only ones using it, so it felt like our own private pool. We did see other guests using it, just not when we were. It was never crowded. The beach was a mere 20 second walk from our front door! The house was clean with modern amenities. The washer and dryer was used frequently by us. It was nice to wash our towels after the beach and our clothes too. The only thing I would suggest is a TV in all rooms. There was one in the master bedroom and one in the living room. The other guest room did not have one. I rated the cleanliness as a 4 but only becuase we kept tracking in sand onto the hard wood floors. I highly suggest throw rugs by the front door and the sliding back door to eliminate the problem of the sand sticking to your feet. I did try to use the vacuum but it did not work good. Otherwise the place was spotless. Especially the bathrooms. I recommend this property to anyone who wants a tropical hideaway outside of the rowdiness of downtown Waikiki yet close enough to go back and forth easily. You can go in to the beach or shopping, come home and shower, and go back to Waikiki for dinner. I miss my home away from home!
