Enjoy your vacation in our island paradise -a spacious, clean and lovely beachfront home located in the center of one of the world's best beaches. With 76 feet of private beach frontage and plenty of space, Kalaka is the perfect spot to enjoy the charm and aloha of Hawaii with your family or closest friends. The home was remodeled in 2001 and is fully furnished with everything to help you live, relax, and entertain in style.
The home has spectacular views of the Kailua Bay, the Mokolua Islands and the Koolau Mountains and is a home for those who truly love the beach. Nearer to the ocean than many other nearby houses, the Pacific Ocean can be seen or heard throughout the home. Many of the homes in this neighborhood are advertised beachfront but actually are down the road and through a trail to the ocean. Here you can start your morning with fresh ocean breezes and a bright red sunrise over blue tropical waters. A quick yet challenging hike to watch the sun rise from the Lanikai 'pillboxes' is 5 minutes away. Whether your idea of fun is action packed ocean sports or mellower pursuits, Kailua Beach truly has something for everyone. Steps outside your door enjoy a lazy stroll on the sparkling white sand beach, a swim in the ocean, challenging water sports, or simply lounging on your own deck beneath coconut palms with a cool drink watching the it all. In the evenings, the bay results in truly spectacular sunsets as well as the moonrises for which Kailua is justly famous.
Cooking your own fresh dinner is easy on the gas grill or in the fully-equipped kitchen. In 2011 we added a granite island and upgraded the appliances which makes the kitchen even more inviting. The gas grill is easily accessed through a side entrance near the kitchen. The kitchen usually has a selection of spices and non perishables like tea and rice and we recommend checking out the kitchen before going to one of the nearby grocery stores. There are also many unexpected items such as small appliances you may not expect so look around - it is likely here. Alternatively, visit one of the many nearby bistros or take out restaurants for anything from quick bite or to a gourmet feast. There are many dining options in Kailua.
A gated driveway leads to your own private sanctuary nestled on around one-quarter acre. The home is spaciously laid out under one roof and is six bedrooms. The main living area contains a master suite with king bed and bathroom. There is also a room with a queen, a room with two twins, and a room with a single twin. The last two bedrooms are 'en-suite' with a shared full bath as well as a second dining roomand living area with another TV as well as a small beverage center and wet bar. The construction of the home is such that this area is quieter as the rooms face the front yard instead of the ocean and are acoustically isolated. This is the ideal place for a power nap, a family with younger children traveling with a bigger group, teens that wish to stay up late, or older guests who want to go to bed earlier. Although the area can be entered from a separate side door, the two bedroom portion is NOT available to be rented separately and remains vacant when a small family rents the house as a late booking.
The house is clean and fully furnished. Free high speed internet is available. The full kitchen has everything needed and a selection of beach toys mats and boogie boards are available. Every bedroom has vinyl windows with 100% ventilation to let in the fresh air and ceiling fans for the few times breezes are light.
Kailua itself is a lovely town with shopping, art galleries and grocery stores all within a small area. A Whole Foods is set to open along with a Target, something that can be looked at as good or bad depending on your attitude. There are already 4 other grocery stores in town as well as a Macy's and two competing drugstore chains. Yet, Kailua is a truly small town with no hotels and a distinctly local flavor. The quiet town is located only a short drive through a mountain tunnel to the night life and action of Waikiki. The unique combination of natural beauty, the nearby amenities, a variety of world-class sporting activities and the pace and 'aloha' of nearby Kailua town make renting this home much more practical and affordable than an expensive resort hotel - and much more personal and enjoyable!

My wife hails from Oahu and has always loved Kailua Beach. My first visit convinced me the place was paradise. We have three girls 11,10 and 8, and we wanted to share the beauty and aloha of Hawaii with them on a regular basis. When we happened upon this lovely home we knew it was perfect means to introduce them to the real Hawaii. We now live in Chicago, but return often and the home is the perfect gathering spot for the entire clan. When friends borrowed the property for a stay, we derived so much pleasure from hearing of their adventures we decided to rent the home to others when not in use by us or the family in Oahu. We hope you can visit and create memories to last a lifetime!

You will be right in the very middle of world famous Kailua Beach. The ideal location - away from the crowds but close to everything! And the deck, well, it has to be seen to be believed. The only one like it - the best spot in Kailua!!!!
