Overview

Kailua House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

The Happy Kailua Beach House is located 1/2 block down from Kalama Beach Park a small, clean local beach park which has showers, restrooms, and a nice grassy area with picnic benches. The waves at the beach are as gentle as the soothing tradewinds, and the white sand is as soft as flour. You'll have no excuse not to make the three minute walk to the beach each day! We have chairs, mats, boogie boards, snorkeling equipment, buckets, shovels, and a large wheeled cooler to equip your visits to this wonderful beach area.

Ours is a newer home on Hauoli Street, a quiet street off Kalaheo Ave. It offers you a clean place to relax and unwind, barbeque on the lanai with family and friends, or just nap the day away... We have a portable crib and high chair for your little ones. As well, wireless internet access is provided for your laptop. Our home has hardwood floors throughout, a spacious main room and kitchen area, a master bedroom with private renovated full bathroom, two guest bedrooms with another full bathroom, and a lanai and yard out back. Downtown Kailua with its coffee houses, great restaurants, and shops is near enough to go by foot (fifteen minutes)or beach cruiser (three minutes). The hot malasadas at Agnes' Portugese Bakery are to DIE for.

Enjoy your stay in Paradise!

About Bill Holt (owner)

My wife and I fell in love with Kailua Beach and decided to make it our home away from home and our antidote for the stresses of living in the SF Bay Area. We love bringing all our friends and showing them the Real Hawaii. Such a wonderful getaway!

Bill Holt (owner) purchased this house in 2005

Why Bill Holt (owner) chose Kailua

Visiting Kailua is unlike any other vacation to Hawaii you may have taken. There are no tall buildings, no throngs of people, no booze cruises. There is just a long, wonderful, white sand beach with no rocks, riptides, or reefs. At the Kalama Park, here at the center of the beach, the waves come in high enough to ride but break far enough out for little ones to play in the sand. There is a calm breeze from the northeast that keeps things from getting too hot, and showers and restrooms to keep you from having to go home too soon. But, hey, if you need to our house is just a half a block away.

Our Happy House is a great place to use as a base of operations, whether it be a day trip to the north shore to watch world class surfing, a trip into Honolulu for great shopping, or a series of three-minutes walks back and forth to the beach via Kalama Park. Nothing is too far away, and yet you're nicely removed. At the end of the day you'll be staying in a welcoming, diverse Hawaiian community that just feels GOOD. Waking up to the sunrise over the Mokes is a truly special experience.

The town of Kailua is big enough to offer many of the things you want while on vacation without being so busy and crowed to keep you from seeking them out. There are many great restaurants, shops, and coffee houses to enjoy by car, beach-cruiser, or foot.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Perfect home close to the perfect Hawiian beach. Very clean and equipped with everything you need in the house and on the beach. Very nice sized rooms. Much nicer than the pictures on the internet show. We loved it and will highly recommend it to others.

Amazing vacation rental

  • 5 of 5
I was on vacation in Hawaii for a wedding with 2 other couples. Staying in this house was one of the best decisions we made. Everything detailed in the listing was exactly as it was in person. The house was in excellent shape, and in a great location. The beach is literally a short walk away down the block! The rental also included snorkeling gear, boogie boards, coolers, and more. Not only is the beach a block away, but this is the nicest beach we visited on the whole island. We were also a short walk or drive away from the center of town, which included a row of unique restaurants, shops, supermarkets, etc. Our vacation was like a dream in paradise. Bill is so easy to work with, and so accommodating. I would definitely recommend this listing to all families and friends. Although we didn't need it, the house also had a pack and play and high chair.

Great place

Ideal location. Perfect "Hawaiian" bungalow. Incredibly clean so don't be deterred by the cleaning fee. So quiet you can hear a pin drop at night. Would highly recommend to anyone.

A Happy Home makes for Happy Travellers

  • 5 of 5
This home in Kailua is walking distance to the beach and the "hub" of Kailua where one could find the post office, delicious eateries, interesting retail shops. The house is exactly as described on the website. Well furnished; well maintained. There is definite pride in ownership. The kitchen is well stocked, although our family chose to eat out for lunch and dinner every day. There were so many great restaurants to discover! The bathrooms have toiletries in the event you forgot an item. The garage is filled with beach chairs and mats. It truly is a home away from home. Everything has been thought out for their guests. The owner Bill is quick to respond to any questions you may have. Emailing is preferred method of communication. The house is in Kailua, but the ease of highway access allows for effortless drives into Honolulu for dinner. This was our first time booking through VRBO; however, we do visit Hawaii a few times a year. We were certainly pleased and completely satisfied.

Spring Break 2014

  • 5 of 5
The home, amenities and location were perfect for our family. The home was spotless and well stocked. Early morning walks on the beach, around the neighborhood and into Kailua city center were safe and refreshing. Bill and his local agent were always professional. I would highly recommend this home and rental experience. We can't wait to return.

Spring break at the Happy Kailua Beachside Home

  • 5 of 5
We were lucky enough to take our three kids, ages 16, 13 and 11, to Kailua over spring break. The house perfectly accommodated our family. The three bathrooms and kitchen were updated and spotless, the beds were all comfortable and the private yard had a great barbecue and was full of lush Hawaiian plants. We all appreciated the proximity of the house to the beautiful white sand beach and the availability of kayaks and standup paddle boards for rent. We spent our days relaxing and playing on the beach. I cannot recommend this house highly enough, and my family and I cannot wait to go back!

More than 5 Star

  • 5 of 5
Everything was as indicated PLUS many unexpected pleasures as we settled into our 10 day stay. Just bring your family and some food and your favorite coffee and the rest is taken care of. All the kitchen, bath, beach, music, video, game and book choices were thought of. The home is bright, efficient, spotless and breezes pass thru keeping the temperature delightful. The owner was professional, forthright and friendly. Highly Recommended by my family.
