This is a single dwelling cottage with direct beach access from the property. Walk on Mokulēi'a Beach for miles or swim, snorkel, kitesurf or play right in front of the property and fulfill your beach vacation dreams by enjoying the honu(green sea turtle) swimming or basking in the sun.

Our coastline is alive with Laysan Albatross, Hawaiian Monk Seals, Honus (Hawaiian green sea turtles), Humpback whales that migrate(November through May) every year from the North Pacific near Alaska, reef fish & more!
