I am a single dad with 2 teenage daughters. This is our home and we are excited to share it with you.
Chip Doyle purchased this house in 2007
Newly built and renovated in 2008. Resort-style finishes and furniture. High-end Wolf Sub-Zero appliances, piano, pool, outdoor cooking and living area...very fun family home across from the beach. Better than on the beach, believe me.
Quiet and private. Secure yard for little kids. Beach kayak and other beach toys available. Walk to Kailua town, Kalapawai Market, Lanikai Beach, Whole Foods, etc. Take a bottle of wine down to the beach and enjoy the stars.
We just arrived home after 9 days in Hawaii - 6 nights of our stay was at Chip's. My folks, husband, daughter and I loved this awesome beach house and plan to come back for 2 weeks next time. I hate to give it a 5 star review because I want to keep this hideaway all to myself and Kailua in general takes the shine off Honolulu. Truly the best area and place on Oahu.
First, it had everything we needed and more. In the evenings Grandpa had his own TV room and read a couple of recently published books that were in the house. The teenager had a room for movies - watching a few that Chip had in his collection and we all LOVED the big room for plotting our days and snacking. We enjoyed Hawaiian music on the TV channel 800. There is a useful book on Kailua at the house - I didn't notice it for a few days. The tourist office also has a big map we wish we would have had day one.
The kitchen was so easy that we ate out only a few times. (Buena Sera for Italian and Chianti, Big City Diner for Loco Moco, a giant pizza from Boston Pizza and 2 runs to Agnes Portuguese Bakery for Malasadas - they are to die for). Many great options but we grilled steaks, burgers, etc... and preferred the comfort of the house. There were also plenty of pots and pans, utensils, and enough Tupperware for our leftovers which was a plus.
Even though we took a daytrip to Pearl and another to the North Shore (eat Romy's shrimp there - yum) we rushed back to Chip's to chillax.
Kailua has great shopping with department stores, numerous grocery stores, pharmacies, etc.... We bought some jewelry from local artists at Sand People. Needed more time to shop!
The beach was a DREAM. We had a couple of windy days and one that was fairly cold. This area of beach is quiet and good for boogie boarding. It is an easy walk to the busier area for snorkeling. I originally looked at a house in the busier area (by the park) but was so glad we chose Chip's house. He also has great beach chairs, boogie boards, beach towels, toys, and a kayak that my husband and daughter used a lot. We just walked across the street and behind the next house and there it was! We went back and forth during the day for snacks and drinks. At the end of the day we jumped in the pool which was quite fresh but we know in regular weather it would be warmer.
We all agreed we would have been happy to stay until we ran out of money and lost our jobs....
Mahalo to Chip for your warm Aloha!
This house was a dream. It is modest in appearance on the exterior, but the interior was just beautiful. Our 7 person family was thrilled with the house and so grateful to its owner for sharing it with us. ThIs home is laid out perfectly for a large family – central living spaces flanked with four very private bedrooms. The Family Room, which opened to the gourmet kitchen and dining space, is a lofty, airy wonderfully appointed space. There are huge bi-parting glass doors that separated the Family Room from the outdoor living spaces. The pool is brand new and fantastic, and there is a roof over the Lanai and built in BBQ. The “Master Bedroom” is a killer, and along with the other three full size bathrooms with bathrooms helped to give everyone some space. What was really nice about this home was the very much appreciated details and touches the owner provided for our comfort and enjoyment – there were multiple televisions, a built-in Sonos stereo system, a gorgeous bar with a refrigerated wine cooler, and lot’s of goodies in the kitchen to help the family foodie to show off. But the best, by far, is the location of the house. It’s extremely private, but just a short walk to the beach. My wife and I would grab a cup of coffee every morning just before sunrise and head for the beach. Every morning was the start of another beautiful day. Thanks again, Chip….we will be back!

Beautiful home and property! Everything we needed for the week for 7 of us. Top of the line appliances with fully stocked kitchen supplies and more than enough linens for everyone. Wonderful location with the beach across the street and down a short trail and very close to shopping and restaurants. We would definitely recommend this property and rent again in the future. Baci Bistro is a must for a great Italian dinner!
We spent an incredible week in Kailua at this beautiful home and words can't express how fantastic our experience was. We had four adults and five small kids and everyone agreed that it was our best family vacation ever. The home is situated perfectly in a quiet neighborhood about 2 minutes walking from the beach. The beach itself felt like our own private getaway and was by far the nicest beach I've ever visited. The pool is perfect for both novice swimmers and those wanting more extensive exercise. The home is perfectly adorned with all the essentials for a great, relaxing vacation. There are plenty of great restaurants, grocery stores and shops within a 5 minute drive and Kailua is a short drive from virtually every major tourist attraction on Oahu. Perhaps most importantly, Chip (the owner) is incredibly nice and went above and beyond to ensure our stay was perfect. From beginning to end, it was the ideal home for an amazing vacation. I would highly recommend this home to anyone, especially those with a larger group or kids. It truly was outstanding.
We had a wonderful vacation at this house. This was the first time we rented a home for a family vacation and it couldn’t have been better! The house is beautiful, clean, well maintained and equipped with everything you would need for a family vacation. The house is located on a private street and the beach was right across the street. We all enjoyed swimming in the water and my son loved boogie boarding! We would return from the beach to the lovely swimming pool to cool off. We did not do that much cooking for ourselves, but the kitchen is stocked with everything you need and there is also a barbeque on the back deck. All of the bedrooms have a/c, which was nice to have to enjoy a comfortable nights sleep. The owner Chip, is just wonderful. I spoke with him a few times before we decided on renting this home. He greeted us when we arrived at the house and was available if we needed to reach him during our stay. We would definitely come back to this very special house for another family vacation!
Chip, thank you so very much for sharing your home with my family and I.
Your house was definitely the highlight of our trip! We wish we were back at your place:) I asked my parents what was their favorite part of their trip, they said hands down, your house!!!
You are a wonderful host and I would love to come back one day:)
For anyone wondering if this is the right house to rent....without a doubt, yes!! I hesitate writing all of this, since I feel like I'm sharing a really good secret!! Chip is a laid-back local man, the real-deal, no middle-man to deal with:) He has put so much attention to details in his home, he even gave us a basket with fruits and chocolates and wine when we arrived!! I have rented several homes in oahu before...this one is the best one I have ever stayed in! It is in a very upscale neighborhood, good mix of authentic hawaiian homes and modern renovations! You have the benefits of pool and beach (you don't even need shoes, you can walk on the path right in from of the house, super quite little street) safe, very clean and modern. It's like a high-end hotel but better since you have the whole place to yourself! Private, can't see the neighbors, no traffic on street and very quiet street. But perfectly located to explore Kailua and Lanikaii. We rented bikes and rode along the beach path, I'd recommend this, it's also great way to see more of Kailua without always needing to drive. The beach in front of Chip's house is beautiful, picture perfect, shallow water good for everyone! The pool is very clean, and this house had EVERYTHING you could think of!!
Chip, Thank you again for making our family vacation perfect!
