Tired of the hustle and bustle of Waikiki? Forget all your worries and troubles in this quiet cottage just a short walk to the beach which also offers stunning views of the majestic Koolau mountain range. You are just a short walk to Kalapawai Market for some of the best Kona coffee around and you can enjoy it for a walk on the beach for sunrise where you might be lucky enough to see the whale spouts in the distance or the turtles closer to shore, or bring it back to the front garden to watch the sun light up the Koolaus.
Spend the day sightseeing or enjoying one of the many water sports available at Kailua Beach, but savor the peace and quiet of a residential neighborhood in the evening and wake up refreshed for another day in paradise.
You are just a short bike ride away to the start of the Lanikai Ridge Trail- something that is easy even for beginners, but offers unforgettable views of Kailua Bay and Lanikai Beach all the way to the Makapu'u Lighthouse. After stretching your legs on the hike you can go into town for breakfast at Cinnamon's and their delicious daily specials or to Boots and Kimo's for their famous macadamia nut pancakes. Spend the day window shopping through Kailua Town and the night offers many great restaurants, such as Buzz's Steakhouse which is just a short walk from the studio, and finish the night up with a drink or two at the Kailua Town Pub, Boardriders or one of the other bars in the area.
Come to the Aloha Cottage for the vacation of a lifetime.
Mahalo! Thank you!
We moved out of the big city of Tokyo a few years back and after a lengthy search found this home which we could rebuild to make our own. We love the quiet (no barking dogs!) neighborhood and the close proximity to Kailua and Lanikai Beaches.
The Owner purchased this cottage in 2009
We chose Kailua because it offers the best of everything in Hawaii- the pristine beaches, beautiful nature, wonderful people without the hectic pace of Waikiki or Honolulu. It also is one of the safest places we have ever lived and is welcoming to families and singles alike.
We have all the ocean activities you could want and many of the tools for enjoying it. You can also stop at Kailua Sailboards and Kayaks and rent a kayak to go out to the Mokuluas or try your hand at windsurfing or kite surfing. You can just enjoy the hedonistic pleasure of laying on the beach, too. Whichever path you take, Kailua has everything you want, and our Aloha Garden is just around the corner from it all.
Thanks so much for your gracious hospitality and great sightseeing and restaurant tips. We had a wonderful, comfortable, relaxing stay and hate to move on! Good luck with all the work you are doing on the place. Your cottage and Kailua are perfect.
Kite surfing, Scuba diving, the most amazing star watching you may ever experience made even better over a nightcap. Ideal location to view the moonrise- a rare view of the moon rising out of the ocean larger than life illuminating the night sky.
