SPECTACULAR OCEAN VIEWS FROM AFFORDABLE, PRIVATE HILLSIDE HAVEN, NEAR BEACHES!!

Kailua House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, sleeps max of 8

From this private, 2 story hilltop home located on the Kailua end of Kaneohe above Kaneohe Bay (it's an easy 6 minute drive to Kailua town and beach, a few minutes more to Lanikai beach, and less than 10 minutes to Kaneohe town), you'll have PANORAMIC POSTCARD VIEWS from nearly every room -- sailboats on the bay (the weekly races provide a colorful show of spinnakers), the sandbar in the distance (location of scenes in the movie '50 First Dates'), and the Koolau mountains as the backdrop.

You can sit on the front deck and gaze at Coconut Island, reading about its fascinating history--not only was it used for shots of 'Gilligan's Island,' but it once hosted presidents, actors and royalty, and military service members on R and R, and now serves as an important marine research facility. Or, you can watch for visiting yachts or other vessels -- with the filming of 'Pirates of the Caribbean 4' in the bay, the view from the deck included a pirate ship!

The home is cooled by HILLTOP BREEZES and ceiling fans and is fully furnished with all linens and full kitchen amenities, plus extra cooking items (blender, rice cooker, coffee grinder, electric kettle, crockpot, mini food chopper, Foreman grill, spices). We also provide body boards, snorkeling gear, beach towels, coolers, beach umbrella, sand toys, and beach chairs.

There is 1 bedroom downstairs, plus a tub and shower bathroom; there are 3 bedrooms upstairs, plus a shower-only bathroom. Toilet is separate from the sink/shower, and has its own door off the hallway.

Also included: wireless internet access, flat screen televisions, a full-size foosball table, books and board games. To help with your choice of activities, we provide brochures, maps and local menus. The indoor dining table accommodates six; there are also 2 counter chairs and outdoor chairs plus table on the lanai.

In 6 minutes you can drive to world-renown KAILUA BEACH, where, in addition to swimming, you can enjoy activities like body boarding, surfing, kayaking, windsurfing, and kite-boarding. A few minutes beyond Kailua beach is LANIKAI BEACH, also voted as one of the country's best. There are several nearby golf courses, both public and private (including Koolau, one of the country's most challenging and most beautiful).

MILITARY guests will appreciate the short 5 minute drive to the Kaneohe Marine Base and its commissary, exchange, and private beach.

For 'big city' action, you can get to HONOLULU or WAIKIKI in about 25 minutes, or you can access the nearby H-3 onramp to head toward Pearl Harbor, the Aloha Stadium swap meet, or the airport (about 23 minutes away). Kaneohe town (home of Windward Mall) is about 10 minutes away. Continue past Kaneohe and you'll be on a scenic drive to Kualoa Beach Park, or beyond to the north shore and its famous beaches. Or, if you prefer to just relax, you can sit on the lanai with a good book and spend your day enjoying the view.

We look forward to welcoming you to our hale with a basket of Hawaiian coffee and local treats. Don't forget your camera!

Special Note: ***The paved driveway up to the house is steep -- not suitable for trucks. (Cars and SUVS are recommended). The reward is the view!

Another special note ** While we want you to enjoy the house and its decks and views, we do request that you show aloha to our neighbors on the street below by refraining from loud, late partying on the decks at night**

(Please note: We don't allow smoking or pets in the house)

WONDERFUL GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
Our young family of four stayed at this wonderful family friendly house perched on the top of a hill near Kailua. We were warmly greeted by Bill and Joyce, who welcomed us and made us feel at home. It is a very spacious residence with a fully stocked kitchen and wraparound balcony. It is very private as it is the top house on the hill (you do need a car). There was ample beach toys for the kids and snorkel gear for the adults. The owners live next door, and were available at all hours to answer any questions or provide recommendations for what to do on those rainy days, but were very discrete and I didn't see them unless I had a question. The location is only a quiet 5 minute drive to Kailua Beach, and a 30 minute commute into downtown Honolulu. If you're looking to stay away from Waikiki, have access to beautiful beaches, and enjoy the rugged greenery of the Eastern windward side near Kailua, this is the place!

GREAT FOR FAMILIES

  • 5 of 5
The ten days we spent at Hillside Haven were just wonderful. For a large, close knit family our daily lives and jobs limit the time we can spend together so we were looking for a location and a vacation home where we could get some intense family time. Hillside Haven was perfect for that kind of family vacation. We were able to prepare and eat a meal every evening after an excursion and relax around the dining table or the balcony for conversation and games. The living spaces on the two floors were perfect for small gatherings when some of the group chose to retire early. And last but not least—you promised a fantastic view of the bay and you really delivered!

THE PERFECT VACATION HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
We have been frequent renters of vrbo properties in the past, but this was by far our best vrbo vacation experience yet, mostly due to the warm and welcoming environment presented by Bill and Joyce. We stayed there for a family reunion consisting of seven adults, but the house was relaxed and roomy enough to fit all of us very comfortably. Bill and Joyce made us feel like their special guests, with wonderful thoughtful touches provided for us, like a pound of Hawaiian coffee, a large basket of tropical fruit, lovely toiletries, lots of helpful maps, guide books and restaurant menus and reviews, and seasonal decorations that even included a little decorated Christmas tree! They were the consummate hosts, yet we also had total privacy, feeling like we lived on top of the mountain in our own little castle. But by far, the most amazing feature of the property is the jaw-droppingly gorgeous view from just about every room in the house. Please understand that the pictures of the view from the deck that are included in the rental listing do not in any way do justice to the magnificence of that view over the bay. We would go back to that house in a heartbeat. I think we're now spoiled for ever staying in any other rental house.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED VACATION HOME!

  • 5 of 5
Finding a place that will accommodate 7 adults for an extended-family vacation was not an easy task, but luckily I found this gem in Oahu!
Bill and Joyce's property provided plenty of privacy for everyone and had great amenities for a cozy family gathering. The view was fantastic, and the house was well stocked with everything necessary for a family vacation (From beach gear to cooking gadgets). The location was great as well! Just a short drive away from many yummy restaurants in Kailua! We even stumbled into the weekly farmer's market on Thursdays in Kailua and picked up some great souvenirs that you can't get at typical tourist trap attractions on the island. We were able to visit several beaches on the island, snorkel, site seeing north shore and Pearl Harbor while mostly driving in the opposite direction of rush hour traffic.
The house was everything promised in the description and the hosts are so helpful. From my first contact to receiving the deposit return, Bill and Joyce went over and beyond by sending helpful vacation planning tips/restaurant suggestions that made this trip not stressful at all!

PERFECT PLACE FOR MY FAMILY

  • 5 of 5
This was our 3rd trip to Hawaii in 2 years as our son is stationed there. This was the best place we have stayed so far. We took our family this time which included our son, wife, friend and 2 year old son. It was a perfect family place, plenty of space for everyone, the kitchen was awesome in that it was fully furnished with all the items you would need to cook meals and all the basic staple foods (seasonings, oils, extras). The very best thing about the house is the deck that surrounds the entire house. Our grandson just loved running all the way around the house on the deck and sitting watching the boats, planes and helicopters from the marine base doing exercises in the bay. The hosts were so gracious and helpful, awaiting us when we arrived at 10:00p.m. with fresh fruit. The day we were leaving we had to take a few things back to our son's house and they even offered to do that for us, very impressive. The bedrooms are very large with plenty of room for luggage and comfortable beds. We never had to close the windows or worry about our items because it is somewhat secluded and the owners live beside it. The house is also just a short drive from anything you would want to do. I especially liked it not being right on the beach and having the deck surrounding the house, this gave our grandson lots of freedom to run but in a contained area so we did not have to worry about him going somewhere he wasn't supposed to. It was between our son's home and work, making it very convenient for him. I just cannot say enough wonderful things about this place and will definitely stay there when we go back. Since we have been home we have recommended this house to several people that are planning a Hawaii trip. We have also had much communication with the Chandlers since we have been home.They are like friends, so easy to talk to, wanting everything to be perfect for your stay and wanting to help in any way they can. The perfect place for a paradise vacation.

FANTASTIC LOCATION AND BEATIFUL SETTING

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed here for a week in May. The location is great and the view every morning and evening make the stay truely a fantastic place to stay while on Oahu. You will need a car while staying here but everything you need is very close. The house has plenty of room for everyone,. We had two kids 11 and 10, my mom, my brother and myself. 3 Bedrooms were very large and the owners actually bought a new bed for the fourth bedroom during our stay. We had plenty of household items in the kitchen, living room had plenty of kid games, lots of travel guides, bath towels, etc. The owners actually left us fresh fruit and were very helpful in guiding us around the island, making suggestions, etc. The location is on the windward side of the island and we left all windows open all the time for fresh air. If I visit the island again I would stay here again.
