NUC #: 90/TVU-0632

Ultra High Speed Internet - Desk/Work Space - Pets Negotiable -

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 and pets are not permitted on the property. Service animals are permitted only with prior approval of the Mokuleia Beach Colony board. 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.

Visit to Hawaii
Our stay at Sand dollar cottage was perfect!! Exactly what we were looking simple accommodations located right on the water, we slept to the sounds of the waves every night. We look forward to our next stay

Best Hawaii trip yet!
So nice! Our 7th trip to Hawaii, 4 Islands. This the best relaxing stay.
We were up before sunrise every day and there for every sunset. It’s amazing that both are in plain view from the same place. Having an open patio was great. We read our Bibles each day outside, watching the sunrise and enjoying the waves.
We saw 5 turtles our very first hour and even snorkeled with 3 during our stay. We snorkeled every morning as the tide was at its lowest, no wind in the morning. Even directly out front had good snorkeling, beautiful fish of all types. You had to find the pockets where they hung out.
We stayed put most of the time with few excursions, that’s how much we likes the setting.
I highly recommend stopping at Costco before you check in and buy your food. That way you can have oceanfront dining always.����.
The interior of the cottage is not the high end, but it’s the oceanfront we loved. Be aware of no air conditioning, fans helped.
We have done nothing but tell our friends and family how much we enjoyed our stay.

View of Views
About six yards from the water, I paced it off. A sea wall of around ten feet is all that keeps the ocean back, amazing unobstructed view you never tire and rocks you to sleep. The condo lanai overlooking the ocean is the best feature, inside is adequate but dated. Newer appliances help that part. A studio floor plan so a single, a couple or family with small children, are best suitability. You will never be closer and have a more spectacular view of the tropical ocean.

Cottage on the. Beach
The rental met our expectations and although we planned on just the two of us, when our daughter and son-in-law joined us, we were still comfortable. It had everything we needed, was clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the laidback vibes of the area and the friendly people we met.

Paradise at Your Front Door
Beautiful views of the North Shore. This rental is a little gem for those that don't want to stay in a touristy area. Private, safe and perfect for a couple. No air conditioning but we adjusted quickly. Very quiet, gated community that smells of Plumeria trees. Just breathtaking!

A Hidden Paradise
Sand Dollar Cottage is located in Mokuleia Beach Colony Resort. This place is a hidden gem on Oahu. The property is well maintained, the landscaping is gorgeous and it is very quiet and peaceful. Sand Dollar Cottage is located directly oceanfront. The cottage itself is very simple and clean. The view from your lanai, the stars at night and the sound of the ocean is magnificent. We've stayed here 5 times and can't wait to come back!

Tranquil vacation spot
Very relaxing 10 days, quiet and layed back. The grounds were beautiful and well maintained. The views were beautiful and I saw turtles everyday.. two days in a row I saw a harp seal catching and eating fish in the water directly in front of our patio. A bit warm as the breezes off the ocean die down in the evenings. The fans helped. I definitely would return to this spot. It’s a studio and small, but it was perfect for just the two of us.

Amazing
Our stay here was excellent. Waking up to the ocean right out front and mountains in the background. It was gated so we felt pretty safe. There was a plumbing issue that was dealt with promptly and everyone on the grounds was friendly. I hope to one day make it back there. It’s perfect for our family and our little honeymoon.

Cozy beach cottage
I spent 1 week in the Sand Dollar Cottage with partner and kids. The cottage offered everything we needed; we enjoyed our dinners on the porch while watching the sunset and beaches and nature walks were in very close proximity.
The interior is a little dated and there is no aircon.

Beach Life
I came for a week with my son after a week on the Big Island for a tour group. The community was beautiful done, being gated made us feel even more secure during our stay. The unit we has is right on the beach and we couldn't have asked for better. We wanted to relax and this was the perfect.place to stay and relax. We had access to the pool but the ocean was what called us. If I could I would buy this unit, that's how much we loved it. Having the constant breeze was amazing. The unit itself was ocean front and well done. We would recommend upgrading the ceiling fan but it worked well, my son just gets overheated easily. All in all we didn't want to leave.

Excellent beachfront location!
We went to Oahu to have a peaceful, quiet, beachfront experience and this home provided exactly what we were looking for. The ocean is 40 feet from your door. You have your own slice of beach without having to travel anywhere. Plus, there aren't crowds to worry about. You can snorkel all over the reef that spans over a hundred yards out from the beach. The home has all the amenities you need for your stay. It was clean when we arrived. The location is quiet and safe.

Quiet, great view, with well equipped kitchen and plenty of staples ie paper products etc.
Our one suggestion is that the floors be more properly cleaned before the arrival of new guests as they were not clean when we arrived.

Also, we had no direction to actually locate our cottage when we first arrived, but after hit and miss we found ur!

Great getaway.
Great relaxing place to spend a vacation. Very rural but close to the town of Haleiwa to eat, shop and take in the wonders of the ocean. If it had A/C in the bedroom it would be perfect. Gated community offers plenty of privacy. Oceanfront but no beach. There are some great beaches a short distance away. Property has pool and tennis courts for guest use. There is horseback riding and skydiving a short distance away. Very close to one of Oahu’s state parks for hiking. Management was good and the property was clean.

Ocean Front Relaxation
This was a great rental for the two of us. Out in the country and away from the hustle bustle. Nice manicured grounds with fragrant flowers, beautiful sunsets, long beach strolls at low tide. We will definitely return to this gem. Loved it so much we are keeping our eye out for one of the units to go on the market.

North Shore Gem
Staying in a cottage directly on the North Shore of Oahu was truly amazing!
We will never forget the sounds and the beauty of the ever changing ocean. The colors of the water, the power of the waves, the crabs, snails, turtles and geckos all added to our experience. The landscaping of the grounds, the horses across from the parking lot and the sunsets were all definite plusses. I enjoyed my first stay here so much that I rented the cottage again to share with my life partner.

A Peaceful Place by the Ocean
If your idea of Hawaii is partying on Waikiki, Kona or Maui, this is not your place. It is on the sleepy North Shore. The grounds are beautiful and you are right on the ocean. The furnishings are basic; nothing fancy. But, it has everything you need and it is on the ocean. Note that the ocean can be noisy so bring ear plugs if you are sensitive to noise while sleeping. This was our second stay here and God-willing there will be more in the future.

North Shore Gem
I absolutely loved this cottage from the minute I arrived.
The setting is unbeatable...three steps from the ocean. I really enjoyed sitting on the covered patio and watching and listening to the waves.
The landscaping within the colony is beautiful with so many different plants. There are birds and geckos to watch, too.
I felt very comfortable at the cottage. It had everything I needed.
The location worked great. It was out of the hustle-bussle but not far from anything.
Watching the skydivers was so much fun. One afternoon we got lunch at a food truck located at the airfield and watched them come in for their landings. The food was really good too!
My daughter, son-in-law and new grandson live on the military base. The travel time was about 20 minutes which was great. We could get together easily.
I would highly recommend staying here and in fact have already booked ten days in February 2022!

Mokuleia Beach Colony Cottage 13B
We had a quiet and restful stay at 13B. It was very relaxing to be next to the water, hearing the waves and overlooking water to the horizon. We had every thing we needed and the management was responsive to emails and when we were unable to get into the unit upon arrival due to a faulty lock. The cottage may be warm in the summer as we, in November, still needed fans as there was no A/C. It was also surprising that taking out trash required going outside the gates to place into dumpsters; it was a trek for us as we, being close to the water, were among the farthest to the gates. Small details such as remotes needing new batteries or a couple of burned out light bulbs did not matter over a short stay. Our biggest regret was not discovering until almost the end of our stay how easy it was to go the the small beach next to the property once you go down the steps at the seawall. Overall, we would consider coming back and would recommend this to friends to consider.

Beautiful ocean view
It’s a beautiful location. Sitting on the lanai watching and listening to the waves, perfect. BUT remember this is NOT a hotel, bring your own bar of soap for the shower.

Right on the Water!
This is a comfortable cottage that is right on the water, as advertised. It is not luxurious, but basic and comfortable. On high surf days the ocean can be a little noisy at night, but that was a small price to pay! The kitchen was serviceable but basic. Note that there is no beach in the winter due to the higher tides.

This is a great place for R & R: quiet and secluded. It is a short drive to Haleiwa where you can buy groceries. We would stay there again.

Quite location with a beautiful view
Beautiful place to stay. We were right on the beach. Some renovations were going on while we were there and we did have some trouble with our parking. They also started demoing our roof the day before we left. Other than that we had a great stay. It was clean and well kept up

Paradise Found!
Our family of four loved our stay at the Sand Dollar Cottage. We had a late arrival, and it was a little tricky finding our way around in the dark, but a call to Hawaii Beach Rentals was very helpful. The view from the cottage is amazing, just feet from the ocean. We spent a lot of time on the patio every day, and had the pool to ourselves every time we went. The grounds were like a botanical garden, just beautiful. Loved everything about it, right down to the friendly geckos!

Peaceful Paradise
Our vacation, For my Wife's Birthday was incredible at " The Sand Dollar" !This cottage, "one side of a duplex" right on the ocean is fantastic! Vary enjoyable , because it was so relaxing and yet the sounds of the pounding surf lulled us to sleep at night. Because it's location is so far from any city lights , the stars you can see at night were awe inspiring as well. The property is in the midst of several duplex units with winding sidewalks, with mature flora & fauna all around. The aroma of flowers was so intense !!! The interior was simple but comfortable. We found the kitchen adequate with coffee maker, blender, pots& pans , utensils o.k. We needed a cutting board, not found. The BBQ grill was small and in need of replacement. we also needed more linens , One set of bedsheets and bathrooms towels is a big negative. There is a coin laundry on the property at the other end in the management office. The horses at the polo fields next to the property were fun to watch as well.Over all we were very pleased with the property and location! It is within 20 min. of all the neat stuff on the north shore. we will be back!! The property mgt. team was vary helpful with all our needs, and made our experience vary comfortable!! If you want to get away from all the commercial crazyness of big city lights. The Sand Dollar is the place!!! Aloha & Mahalo !

We had a wonderful time. The cottage really is right on the water, and we made good use of the facilities. Only draw back for us was no AC, because it was in the 90's during our stay.

Very nice and relaxing!
Very quaint and comfortable with a great view! This was one of the most relaxing vacations I’ve had largely due to the area and view. We thoroughly enjoyed it stay. This is a place we would definitely stay again. We loved this place-only had a few minor problems. The chairs on the patio were falling apart. They need to be replaced so someone doesn’t fall through. There was a stain on one of the bedspreads that was yellowish. The bathroom door sticks. I got stuck in there twice trying to get out for several minutes before it finally opened. The BBQ lid is almost falling off.

Stunningly situated north shore beachfront duplex
Amazing peaceful location right on the beach! Sleeps 3 comfortably. Great kitchen, bathroom & facilities. Comfortable & an easy 30 minutes from Waikiki / Honolulu. Lots of things to see & experience on the north shore t. Awesome location for those looking for a place to rest after a big day exploring. BYO all food including condiments, foil wrap etc but great cooking facilities. Door is a little tricky to open but do it before it times out. Loved it! Great stay!

Loved the view, but......
If your priority is being mesmerized by the ocean, this is the place for you. The porch is a few steps from the water, and we sat there for hours. If your priority is an upscale property, not so much. The website pictures oversell the property somewhat. The refrigerator is not as nice as the one shown, and it makes a lot of noise. The living room is quite dark at night, so would suggest the lighting be upgraded. The TV remote didn’t work during our stay. The BBQ hadn’t been cleaned in some time. It’s about a 10-15 minute drive to Haleiwa and services, so keep that in mind depending on your needs. For a Hawaii rental, the price is reasonable.

Winter on the north shore
We had a fantastic time and the location is amazing. We saw some turtles and whales (though a ways off shore) from the lanai. We sat and watched the ocean every morning. Going to sleep and waking to the sound of the waves was wonderful. Also being able to see the ocean from the bed was great.

There are a couple beaches that are a short walk away to walk on. There is a sea-wall directly in front of the cottage that has some sand but really only accessible when the tide is low. Our favorite beach was about a 5min drive (just past the end of the small airport) which has perfect soft sand and hardly any people. This area of the island is very quiet and restful. The small nearby town has plenty of food and shopping but is also slower paced like we wanted.

The cottage itself is a little on the rustic side and we were slightly disappointed when we first arrived but that soon didn't matter since most of our time was spent outside and the price was right. We would absolutely return to this location.

Oasis
Very nice secluded out of the way of tourists and away from the busy traffic of Oahu. Hear the crash of waves and the music of songbirds. Just a short distance from a wonderful hike to an albatross refuge and protected area.

Anniversary Vaca
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.

Ideal Location almost on top of ocean
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.

Quiet & Relaxing
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.

Absolutely wonderful! The grounds area was always clean. It was very peaceful and quiet there. The view was amazing? You looked out the patio doors and the ocean is right there. 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.

Sand Dollar Cottage ROCKS!
The Sand Dollar Cottage is tucked away is a quiet corner of Oahu. If you LOVE to hear to sound of the ocean, this is the place for you. Due to the big waves of the North Shore, there isn't a beach but that didn't matter to us. We LOVED this place and can't WAIT to return!!!

Great location
Lovely beach cottage very near the sea. We loved the location up on the north coast. Very quiet area. cottage is not luxurious but clean with new work tops in kitchen and vanity area. Loved sitting on the patio every morning overlooking the sea. Would highly recommend, you defiantly need a car.

Quiet rest
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!

The newly remodeled kitchen and bathroom area were greatly appreciated. The location is lovely, with views of the kite boarders and the parachutists an added dimension of the North Shore ambiance. Suggestions: Fix the pots and pan shelving and the lock box and buy better frying pans.

Peaceful environment, quiet location, calm serf, long beach. This trip was arranged last minute and although I had to wait two hours to check in, as it was being cleaned, I was able to swim in the pool. It was very nice. Have already planned another stay here for my next trip! Thank you??????

open, airy, fully equipped bungalow facing the ocean! We stayed 5 nights, slept like babies to the sound of crashing waves. This house has everything you could possibly want at the beach, from snorkels to paddle balls, you can watch the sunsets from the patio.. We loved it!! Beach access also a huge plus. Mahalo

Couldn't be happier with my stay at the SDC during my vacation. Place is ideally situated and afforded unobstructed views of the ocean and surrounding mountains. Place was very tidy and spacious. Haliewa is nearby and although the nearest Foodland is a few miles away the views along the drive are well worth the distance. Hated to leave.

Perfect Home away from Home!
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!

Million $ view
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!

A kamaina staycation
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 Response: 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

Perfect Beachfront Cottage
Perfect little get away for my wife and I. We loved to enjoy our coffee in the morning while listening to the waves break on the wall.

aaahhhhhhhhh, the warmth of the ocean...the sounds...the smells..
I used to live in one of these cottages...they have not changed a bit. they are not Waikiki or Turtle Bay...that's exactly why you come to this little escape away from all the hubbub and tourist traps....reasonable in price it is clean and well kept. There are very few others visitors and the beach is empty of any souls....not a person on the beach....big waves....wonderful stay....mahalo nui loa

Cozy Condo
Very charming, the perfect getaway for my wife and I. The reservation staff was very friendly and helpful, especially Zoe and Jessica. We had one small issue with a coffee maker but a new one was brought to us the same day. Will definitely be coming back many times over.

Ocean side beauty
Lovely location with turtles surfacing outside the front door, our only criticism was a dishwasher that did not work and plumbing in the kitchen that made things harder to keep clean.

Manager Response: Aloha Mary, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. Please note we did replace the part in the dishwasher the next day and solved the plumbing issue. We are happy to hear you got to see turtles! Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes

Idyllic location
Fantastic location - very quiet and peaceful! We so enjoyed our stay here and definitely would choose to stay here again.
The bungalow could use a little updating but it did not detract us from having a marvelous time.

Manager Response: Aloha Lynn, Thank you for taking the time to review The Sand Dollar. It is a very quiet location and it is a peaceful destination. We will pass along the updating suggestions to the owner. Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes

Beautiful Sunsets!
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!
