* The Sand Dollar Cottage - Beachfront

Guest Rating:

Vacation rental house. Sleeps 4, 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom. No pets allowed.

Waialua, HI 96791 United States

- The Sand Dollar Cottage -

Of the 26 charming duplex cottages in the gated Mokuleia Beach Colony, only five actually face the ocean; and this is one of them! You’ll wake to the sound of waves, sit on your open lanai and see nothing but aquamarine water and morning sky. The ocean is right there in front of you, just a few steps away. This beach bungalow was designed in the 1960s and has been decorated by a Hawaiian-born artist, whose paintings of the Mokuleia ocean, sky and landscape hang on the walls.

- The Beach -

The Sand Dollar Cottage offers a stunning view of a beach that stretches for miles in either direction; ideal for swimming, walking and snorkeling in the coral reef. You rarely see anyone and have warm water, day and night!

- The Neighborhood -

A twelve minute drive down a country road will take you to the famous surfing town of Haleiwa; where you can dine in one of the many restaurants and shop for clothes, local art, shave ice and fresh fish, steaks and produce. The Colony has a beautiful guest-only pool and five minutes up the road towards Ka’ena Point, there’s kite surfing and skydiving.

- From the Owners -

The home has more return guests than any other in our inventory, but after years of 5 star ratings it has recently received some critical reviews. The owners have taken these to heart and have addressed all maintenance issues in the house. Below is a word from the owners:

Aloha to all of our longtime guests. Wanted you to know we spent a couple of weeks in March renovating and restoring 13B. It needed it. You'll find a new kitchen: counters, cabinets, sink, faucet and a new glass-top stove. We also painted the unit, put in a new, higher vanity, sink and faucet, and new outdoor lighting. We restored all the louvers and jalousies that needed it and even added a more powerful modem for better WiFi. We left the ocean view and sunsets alone since no one could improve that.

Smoking strictly prohibited at Mokuleia Beach Colonies, both indoors and outdoors. The State of Hawaii prohibits smoking in public parks and at all beaches. There are no areas near the unit designated for smokers. These bans include e - cigarettes.

    Nancy R from Woodbridge, VA recommends this vacation rental

    The property was excellent. Just the right size for two people. Location was very quiet and secluded which was nice to come back to after doing touristy stuff all day. The pictures showed a little beach area off the back of the house, but the water was too high so we just went down the street to the public access. Also would have been nice if the home had AC. It was a bit hot although it did cool down some in the evening.

    a guest from Hendersonville, TN recommends this vacation rental

    The location & the cottage were excellent for a North Shore stay. We would definitely recommend & would not consider staying anywhere else. Unit is right on top of the ocean for excellent view (no beach). Unfortunately, the breezes do not make it inside & the cinder block walls keep the unit unbearably sweltering hot during the day in the week we were there in August. Unit has been recently updated, décor is very beachy, original art is phenomenal. The only suggestions we have are to add more electrical fans (2 are not enough in August). Also, suggest management company makes sure everything is clean (we had to take the one working electrical fan apart & clean with hose before use)& working (fans, remote controls, etc.) before guest arrival. Strong wifi. Security gate. Quiet community. Only 6 miles from town, but you feel worlds away. The best beaches just west past the condo community. From the Lanai, we could see the ocean, the mountains, sunset, sunrise, multiple rainbows, distant rain showers, kite surfers, parachutists, etc.

    a guest from Vancouver, WA recommends this vacation rental

    PROS: Nice little beach cottage in a quiet area on the North Shore. Easily hear the sound of the ocean at night and the sunsets are beautiful. Horse property next door. Town is a 15 minute car ride away (this can be good or bad depending on who you are). Neighbors are friendly and the grounds are well maintained. The cottage itself was nice and clean.
    CONS: Although there is no beach in front of the seawall, you can walk to the beach next door at low tide. Shower area could use some updating. No air conditioning (but they have fans!). Town is a 15 minute car ride away.

Sleeping to the sound of the ocean waves is so relaxing. We have recommended to our parents and would do so to anyone who wants a peaceful beachside area.

    The condo was in a quiet area and you could enjoy the ocean waves all night. No AC so if this is a problem not for you. We opened all windows and there were fans and we were comfortable. Loved the ocean right there so we could jump in whenever we wanted. Farther away if you want to do all tourist things. We went out a couple days but thoroughly enjoyed just being by ocean and very few people. Condo was older but maintained well. Charming in the "old" Hawaii style. Loved that. Clean, only complaint was sofa and chairs very uncomfortable. Seems the norm in all places we've stayed other than hotels. Bed was fine.

    This was my second stay at this cottage and again I cried as I packed to return home. The combination of the ocean literally at your door, mountains on the back side and the beautiful flowers on the grounds, providing the sweet exotic fragrance of pikaki the moment you awake makes this place number one on my list of homes away from home. The ocean can be super loud and the geckos will join you inside...and the drive for groceries can be ways out. Ahhh, island life. I miss it so much already . Mahalo!

    Luke D from Ocean Shores, NSW does not recommend this vacation rental.

    This cottage is located as advertised on beachfront, there is however no beach in front of property as the shallow lagoon comes right up to the seawall.
    We unfortunately experienced some windy conditions as the trade winds were quite strong. This part of the coast faces toward the direction of the onshore winds.
    We found the cottage to be run down and not so clean. Some linen looked to be mouldy and a towel appeared to be dirty. Bathroom was in need of a good scrub with mouldy residue around rim of bath. When agency was contacted they did send a cleaner to rectify to some degree.
    The barbecue supplied with coals (nice touch) was unfortunately filthy with rotten food residue on the grill. Same for one of the pans we needed to use, food residue not cleaned off from previous use.
    I appreciate the time of year and lack of available properties led to us having to take this property but the place could do with some attention and freshening up, especially considering the location. In saying that the entire complex looks a little run down. Staff at reception seemed unwelcoming and unhelpful, perhaps due to the Vacation Rental firm being a different outfit to the complex management staff.
    We won't be staying there again.

We agree that this cottage is in need of repairs and we are working to get everything refurbished in between confirmed bookings. We ask guests to wash their dishes upon departure which is probably why some pots were dirty and the cleaner didn't catch it. We are making a note for the cleaner to check on the grill better in the future and once this property is revamped we hope you will give it a second chance! Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes

    ATTINA B from TACOMA, WA does not recommend this vacation rental.

    The location is amazing. The WiFi worked great. The overall complex was very peaceful and we loved the pool. We loved being way out in the country and my husband loved being able to kitesurf down-winders to Mokuleia Beach Park or drive a short distance to his favorite surf breaks.

    As far as the rental unit, we would definitely stay within the Mokuleia Beach Colony again but we would never stay in this unit again until it gets some much needed TLC. Previous reviews were not exaggerating the condition of the unit. It seems like it has been neglected for a long time and on an island everything requires constant maintenance.

    The doors and windows are corroding. The outside storage door is falling off. There were layers and piles of bug and dirt debris behind furniture and curtains. (Behind the bed and dressers was especially scary!) The floor was filthy. The sliding door and screen were so dirty we could not see out. We spend half of our first day there cleaning just to get it basically clean. We are "wash & wear" and usually go camping but even we could not spend two weeks living in those conditions.

    We have previously lived in Hawaii and know to keep all our food in the fridge and to clean up after meals right away but we still had many many roaches.

    After our first full day we emailed property management to let them know the basic condition of the unit and to let them know that one of the kitchen chairs is broken, the TV remote is corroded and does not work, and the storage shed door is corroded and broken but we did not get a reply.

    This unit has so much potential and it is such a shame to see it quickly deteriorating.

    a guest from Flower Mound, TX recommends this vacation rental

    I have stayed at this location as well as the cottage next door twice, so it feels like home. This cottage has the advantage of having the lanai, which I love. I was out there to watch for sea turtles with coffee every morning and wine every evening. I absolutely love the location. The residents and property manager are so friendly and the grounds are very well maintained. We really enjoyed the pool and the brand new washers and dryers in the laundry room. The only drawback is the cottage itself- it is badly in need of repairs and updating. Many of the window slats and handles are broken. The sliding door screen is ripped next to the handle and the latch does not work. Both the front and back doors are difficult to close and lock, which would have caused me a lot of concern had I not stayed there before and know the area to be quiet and relatively safe. I also noticed an increase in critters over the last time I stayed- we were greeted by a giant waterbug hanging out on the bedroom wall the first morning and there were constant small insects in the bathroom, which drew an(admittedly adorable)baby gecko to the bathtub. The kitchen floor was a little grungy and I felt the need to wash all of the dishes, pots and pans before use, as well as the coffeemaker, due to all the critters. There was sand on the bedspreads but the sheets were clean. The towels, not so much. I used one to dry my face after a shower- I will leave the gross details as to how I discovered they had not been washed well to the imagination of the reader. Overall,not for the high maintenance or squeamish and a little more rustic than the cleaner,updated and better equipped cottage next door. But if the interior were renovated and repairs made, this place would be perfect. It really is in a great location, which made up for the issues.

    The stay at Sand Dollar Cottage was fabulous, the location was great and the property was clean, however, it is in a general state of disrepair, most of which was ok for my family, but are things that should be dealt with. Storage shed locks rusty and broke. Fridge shelving bad... things constantly falling over, or out of the fridge, as well as the insulated door stripping was starting to remove. Window and door slats didn't all work, and some of the slats fell off.

    We really enjoyed our stay at the Sand Dollar Beach Cottage! It was exactly as we envisioned and exactly as it was pictured on the website. The gated community is very safe and quiet - the only noise was the sound of the surf! If the cottage was any closer to the ocean you'd be in it. We had just a couple of issues after arriving which were quickly taken care after a phone call to Hawaii Beach Homes. Everything in the cottage was in working condition - the kitchen and bathroom could use some TLC but were well equipped with whatever you may need. It was very clean upon check in. The queen bed was super comfy! Watching the 30 to 40 foot waves at Bonzai and Sunset Beach were amazing! You can rent beach cruisers to ride the bike path from Shark's Cove up to Sunset Beach. Haleiwa is a really neat town to explore - lots of neat shops and markets. Waimea valley is beautiful and the hike to the falls was perfect. Dillingham airfield is close to the cottage for sky-diving. It was a 100% change of pace from Waikiki - I wish we had stayed at the cottage the whole vacation and skipped Waikiki altogether!

    I didn't really know where I wanted to stay... I didn't want the crazy city life of Waikiki, we wanted to decompress and reconnect, we nailed it with this place. Our mouths dropped when we saw how close the water was to the unit. It is right there!! It was perfect for 2 people, but we were talking if we brought friends how it would be, I think you could do 4 maybe 5 People with no problem. This place is a cute little beach cottage with everything you need to get started, we were here for 9 days and it was very hard to leave. Everyone in the complex was very nice to us, it was nice to get to know the locals at the pool. We will be back!

    The futon made a very uncomfortable sofa. It has a weird pitch at the back and the mattress did not stay put. I don't know why it is there because it had brackets attached that prevented it from being opened. A normal sofa and a King size bed would be a huge upgrade.

    • Manager Responded on 1/15/2015

      Aloha Laure, Thank you for taking the time to review The Sand Dollar Cottage. We appreciate your feedback about the sofa. The bed size that is currently currently 1 queen size bed and 2 twin beds. The owner feels that since this is a 1 bedroom the sleeping arrangement are great for medium size groups. The area in the bedroom would make a king size bedroom take away from more floor space. We hope you took advantage of being beachfront with a pool! We look for an opportunity to host you again in the future. Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes

    The location of this bungalow is absolutely perfect - right at the water's edge. Listening to the waves at night really gave us a sense of peacefulness and we felt so lucky to see a gorgeous sunset every night. People from bungalows further back from the beach would bring chairs up to sit and enjoy the sunset. Also enjoyed walking the beach each day and spending hours with the kids in the water. Sunday afternoon Polo match next door was fun to check out too! Would be nice to update the apt though. Needs a little love and care. Management was very responsive and helpful though - brought us an extra fan as soon as I sent an email! Thank you! Never did see the fix-it guy who was supposed to repair the dishwasher though. Oh well, we weren't bothered with it anyway. Love the location though, so we will be back!

    Have stayed in this complex several times in other units. Although this unit could use a facelift in the kitchen ad definitely the bathroom our stay was great. The place is comfortable, well equipped, and the location on the water is perfect. Proximity to Honolulu is fine as we love the peace and quiet vs. the brutal traffic on the H1 thru Honolulu. Recommendations; ask the owner to update the bath. It doesn't need to be fancy, but newer fixtures and a vanity not made for a munchkin would be good. If you are tall, be prepared to bend way over to brush your teeth. Overall, we enjoyed it and would stay again. Thank you.

    This condo sits right next to the ocean so you can sit on the patio and listen to the waves. The beach is very narrow and soft here, so not too good for walking. Sometimes the wind came directly across the ocean and made it cold but generally comfortable. There is no air conditioning, but it was not needed. Some of the window louvres are not functional, so some needed to be propped open. The blinds do not block the light.

    My wife and I spent our 10 year anniversary here for a week and had a wonderful at the cottage. The full kitchen was very nice to cook our own meals and the ocean waves were splendid to go to bed and wake up to. This cottage is right on the beach. There is about a 6 foot retaining wall between the patio and the beach (the small waves come all the way up to the retaining wall). The decorations were very Hawaiian and everything worked well for us. The bathroom and kitchen were a little dated in terms of construction but we were more interested in proximity to the beach and ocean. The grounds that this cottage is a part of (Mokuleia Beach Colony) are beautiful and peaceful. I would highly recommend this to others and we will definitely be going back.

    This vacation spot is worthy of best possible reviews and has virtually everything set up so that you immediately get into the swing of relaxing and being on holidays. I am surprised at how much opportunity there is to fish and snorkle because of the easy access to the beach and you only realize this by being here. Fish right off the walkway overlooking the ocean while your family suntans on the lawn. Things are set up so that once you are settled and groceries are in the fridge you can stay the intire holiday without leaving before you go home.

    ALOHA! Words can't even begin to describe how wonderful our getaway experience was at the Sand Dollar Cottage! Everything was absolutely perfect! The bungalow is positioned oceanfront and offers spectacular sweeping views of the ocean, beach and mountainsides. The sunrises and sunsets from the private lanai were breathtaking! The ocean is so close that we felt like we spent a week on a private boat/yacht. We enjoyed the sea turtles dancing in the water, watching the kite surfers glide in the air and glisten across the water off in the distance, parachuter's float in the sky above the ocean and the constant sounds of the ocean waves! We even had a couple of gorgeous rainbows stretch across the ocean and skies! The Mokuleia Beach Colony is very quiet, quaint and magical! The guests and residents were all extremely friendly and lovely people! You really can walk for what seems like miles and hardly see anyone. The long stretch of beach is beautiful and private! The small outlying towns are quiet and away from the chaos of the city. The beaches along the North Shore were some of the most beautiful beaches we've ever seen on the Hawaiian Islands! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and cannot wait to go back! We have a lot of friends and acquaintances that have asked for us to send the links to the Sand Dollar to them so that they can enjoy the ultimate experience on their next trip to the North Shore! MAHALO! Howard & Wendi :)

    We had a nice experience at D4 sand Dollar. The view was amazing, right on the ocean. The unit could really use updating. The unit is about 15 min from the closest town which wasn't bad. We liked sitting outside watching the sunrise and sunset, but the furniture was not comfortable enough to sit out for very long. And the futon in side was really uncomfortable. Just a few updating I would give it 5 stars.

    This house is just as the pictures show and it is directly on the beach. The patio setting feels like you are on a boat -- its so close to the water. The setting is somewhat remote and therefore blissfully quiet. Many walks on the beach with no one else for as far as you could see. The house is simple, but who cares with a setting like this. We slept 4 (2 adults, 2 teenagers) very comfortably. Bring an extra fan for better sleeping at night. Friendly, very nice neighbors. Love it! We'll be back!

    Glen S from Prince George, BC recommends this vacation rental

    The property was just what we expected, it was perfect for our stay, were not ones for big hotels and luxury resorts, we like to be off the beaten path and this property provided those needs,We had two little lizards greet us upon arrival and they were there every night after that. The property was quiet the neighbors where very friendly,and the grounds were well maintained, there are only two things I would do to improve upon the first being maybe consider adding curtains to the bedroom area window just for a little added privacy, and second the furniture on the lanai was a little uncomfortable. Other than that we loved every minute while we were there and will be certainly be returning next year.

    Katie Y from Honolulu, Hi recommends this vacation rental

    My husband and I rented the SD for our 8 yr. anniversary. The location was gorgeous and perfect, just what we wanted. I was a bit disappointed by all of the extra "fees" included. The unit is priced at $150 a night but with all of the extra fees it was much more. This should be indicated on the website. Also, I live in HI and know that there are going to be insects in homes, however the cottage has a SERIOUS ant problem. Every time I went to take a bath/shower, I had to clean the tub as there were literally 400 ants. We wrapped up our food tightly every night and still found ants in our bread, sugar and leftover, despite putting them in Tupperware. I still very much enjoyed my stay and would love to stay there (or another of your properties again), but for a lesser price. Maybe you should offer email discounts for students/kama'aina or frequent visitors? We have many friends and family visit that we could book for. In any case, thank you for a fun stay on the beach!

    a guest from San Francisco, CA recommends this vacation rental

    The drive up there was a beautiful long road with greenery everywhere, a nice relaxing intro. Ours was one of only 5 or so of the cottages right on the water. There's a patio we ate breakfast on, then a 10 foot strip if grass, then a 20 foot strip of beach, then all ocean. Beautiful just like the pics. The home was open and has nice typical Hawaiian light-green decorating. Nice bed with cool drapes. A few bugs but I'm sure that's typical of a beach house in Hawaii. It was cool being greeted on the first day by a little lizard though, though he never returned. The staff was great, like a idiot I left my laptop there and they had it returned to me within 3 days. Thanks! But a classic hawaii beach home, DON'T GET SOME 10th FLOOR HOTEL ROOM DOWNTOWN! this is the classic & best way to experience Hawaii I think. It's a little isolated gated community that feels safe & sorta in the country. But are u going to Hawaii to go clubbing or to relax?

    We booked this property after our first choice was unavailable and it worked out great! First, you have to know it is not close to the main town with shops, etc so you must have a car to get back and forth. The cottage itself was clean with everything we needed. The only complaints we have is the bbq was charcoal and there was non onsite so we had to return to a store to buy some. Second, we never did find out the wireless password. The cottage has a wonderful patio and we spent every evening out there enjoying the sunset and watching the sea turtles!

We were so close to the water; it was amazing. We woke up every morning to the waves and the sunlight. We loved that it had every amenity that we could think of. Overall, excellent, outstanding, fantastic place! Highly recommended especially for the price!

    John F from St. Louis, MO recommends this vacation rental

    We had a great time for 7 days at this location. Had a great ocean view and just had to walk a short distance to get to the beach. The unit was clean, and had all the kitchen appliances needed and plenty of towels. Waialua was a short drive down the road and Haleiwa was just down the road. Would definitely stay at the Sand Dollar again and would recommend it. Two things to keep in mind: 1) it is basically one large living area with a curtain separating the queen bed from the two double beds; 2) the couch and two chairs aren't that comfortable - but how much time are you going to spend watching TV?

    The unit is in need of an upgrade and had to share food with the ants but hey, who spends time inside anyway. The outside grounds and facilities were very nice, well maintained and the location was amazing. It was very safe, quiet, and perfect for a relaxing get away. Snorkel and sun were a few steps away and it was just a short drive to Hale'iwa and other beaches and surf spots. Great value, and perfect if you spend most of your time outside...

    Shearer W from Anderson, South Carolina recommends this vacation rental

    The cottages and location were beautiful! We really enjoyed the trip!! However there are a few issues that i\I would like to address. We understand that the cottages are primarily set up for locals or frequent visitors but we felt some rules were not clearly displayed and were rudely enforced by the property manager. One of these issues was the laundry facility. The only display of the hours and rules for this area was posted on the door; not clearly visible during open hours because the door was open. So, one evening we left our laundry washing and returned before 9 pm to find the laundry door locked. We contacted the manager (still before 9 pm) and practically had to beg him to let us in to get our clothes. And even though he was aware that we were leaving at 6 am the next morning, he refused to let us dry our clothes for even 30 or 40 minutes. Now, once we saw the sign on the closed door, we were clearly aware that we were in the wrong. I understand him enforcing the rule. I even understand his reluctance to let us get our clothes. I do not understand his need to be speak rudely or loudly to us, imply we were stupid or act like we had just roused him from a heavy sleep. So, we took our wet laundry back to our cottage, hung it freely through the house and traveled home with wet laundry... about a 24 hour travel window. It probably wouldn't have frustrated us so much if he had just been civil.
    The locals were extremely nice and helpful and on most occasions so was the management. I would stay here again and would like to know that it was everything i thought it could be. Just want to make you aware in the future of some stuff that would help with the customer service and satisfaction for the upcoming guests.
    All in all, we had a wonderful stay and were very glad we chose to stay on the North shore instead of in the crowded touristy areas in the south.
    Thanks again!

    a guest from Kuesnacht, Switzerland does not recommend this vacation rental.

    It rained 6 out of 7 days we stayed in The Sand Dollar Cottage and the stormy conditions around Oahu did affect our stay in Mokuleia Beach Colony where the cottage locates. Because of the heavy precipitations over the 6 days on the northern coast of the island, roads leading to the premises got flooded in some areas and the cottage itself was bearly withstanding the torrential rains and strong winds. The cottage's walls were not 100% insulated and we were worried if the water from the storm or the high-tide would set in to the cottage. The cottage was in OK conditions but not really modern and clean.

    We got pretty much what we expected, and were generally pleased. Property grounds were in excellent condition. Unit was generally "well used but clean", but really in need of an update. And when I stay in an owner occupied property, generally the owners belongings are stowed away somewhere out of sight, not in every closet I open. Having the tenants wash towels upon departure may not be the best policy, as I felt that the towels smelled bad as soon as they got wet from use. I washed some "clean" towels myself and then they were fine.

    Overall, like our last stay, a good experience. Just a couple of negatives:



    1) The laundry is located at the far end of the site; would have preferred a portable in home unit.

    2) The restriction laundry room hours from 8 to 8. This left our laundry taken hostage for the night and actually forced us to move a business meeting the next morning to accommodate pick up.



    Loved the location, cleanliness and helpful staff. For the price, would choose it all again.
