KAILUA BEACH COTTAGE, STEPS AWAY FROM THE BEST BEACH IN HAWAII!!

Kailua House Rental Photos and Description

If you want a tropical paradise, this is it! And a hammock to enjoy it all!

After a day of sightseeing or hanging out at the beach, my home welcomes you back with Hawaiian hospitality. Before the evening activities, you might want to take a short nap out back in the hammock, catch up on the latest news on the 47' TV or with the free WiFi, or grill some fresh Hawaiian shish-ka-bobs from Hibachi's on the patio. After dinner in the beautiful dining room, you can go for a leisurely bike ride through this lovely neighborhood. And then catch the beautiful Hawaiian sunset -- it can't be beat. After getting one of best nights of sleep you've had in a long time, thanks to some of the most comfortable linens available and awesome mattresses, you get the tough decision of what to do today... Catching the sunrise? Snorkeling? Surfing? Checking out the sea turtles? The list goes on & on.

The house has 2 private bedrooms with closet storage. There is also a queen bed situated off to the side of the great room, and the leather sofa is also a queen size bed. There is a Graco Pack' n Play for your baby.

For your entertainment, the house has WiFi, a 47' flat screen TV with 70 channels with DVD player, boogie boards, a surf board, snorkeling equipment, 3 bikes, etc.

Just bring your shorts, shirts, sandals, bathing suits, and toothbrush & you're set to go.

I am Don. I spent the early years of my childhood on Bellows Beach, just around the corner from Kailua. I love it here. One unexpected benefit of sharing our home is we are so excited about Kailua and Hawaii, in general that we love for others to experience this wonderful place. Our guests have told us how sad they are to leave. We remind them that the Islands will be here for them when they return.

Mari is from Rio de Janeiro and grew up on Ipanema Beach. (She is my 'Girl from Ipanema.') She was skeptical that anything could compare with Rio. The moment she stepped through the beach access onto Kailua Beach she said she knew that this is where she wanted to spend the rest of her life. It blew Ipanema Beach away.

We both love the water and out of doors. Mari is a dance instructor and helps our guests with what they need to have a memorable Hawaii experience.

We live in Phoenix, full time due to other life commitments. Our plan is to one day, live in Kailua, Hawaii full time.

Don Fenstermaker To ensure inquiries are received, always email and call us! purchased this house in 2011

Kailua has the best location in all of the Islands. It has all of the charm of a small beach town with easy access to Honolulu.

I picked this house for my own retreat. I looked at many. It had the right balance of seclusion, beach access, compactness and efficiency, airport proximity, and charm. It made it possible for us to leave on the 8AM Hawaiian Airlines flight and be on the beach by 1. Where else can you do that?

We have outfitted this house with 'the best.' The bedding is all Martha Stewart 600 thread count, the kitchen pots, pans and utensils are all Williams and Sonoma first quality.

In July, we will be hanging a very large (7'x5.5') original oil by Pat Bailey on the dining room wall. If you stay with us before then and wonder about the 3 spot lights on the wall, they are for this art we want you to enjoy.

We have tried to ensure most of what you need to have fun is provided - boogie boards, snorkeling equipment, bikes and surfboard.

PERFECT FOR OUR FAMILY GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay. The cottage was clean and everything as described and perfectly equipped. With a car, the location is perfect to quick start to all the fantastic spots on O'ahu: Quiet beaches on east side or within 30min to buzzling Waikiki beach/Outlet Malls or Pearl Habour. Thanks a lot Mari and Don - we want to come back!

Thank you so much for staying with us. We are glad you had such a nice time. I am glad you found Kailua Beach and town as amazing as we do.

Thank you also for the kind comments on the cottage. We work very hard to make sure everything is a perfect as possible. If the house welcomes you home after a great day around Oahu, then that is what we want. It is your sanctuary!

GREAT HOUSE, GREAT EXPERIENCE!

  • 5 of 5
I was born and raised in Kailua, but live on the mainland now and was coming home for a friend's wedding with my husband and 13 month old. From the beginning, Mari and Don were very friendly, accommodating, and quick to respond. The house is awesome. Tucked away from the street, so it feels private. There is plenty of open space inside and a secure yard outside, so it was PERFECT for my very active and mobile toddler. I could let her roam around knowing there wasn't a lot she could get into or hurt by. The living and sleeping spaces are very comfortable, and the house has a lot a ceiling fans and windows for cross ventilation... which is crucial in Hawaii with the humidity. We were very comfortable there and felt very safe. The house is also well stocked with just about everything you could need for the beach and water, along with plenty of cooking supplies (even All-Clad pots and pans!). In terms of location, as someone from Kailua, this is great for tourists. It is easy to get to from H-3 and you are literally on the road that goes directly into Kailua town. It would be a bit of a walk, but an easy bike ride. Our main concern in booking, was how the house would work for our toddler and it ended up being perfect. They even had a brand new pack-n-play for us, so we didn't need to haul our own. Mari and Don gave us a call and sent a few texts while we were there, just to make sure everything was going ok and that we were happy... something I really appreciated. We will definitely try to stay here again the next time we are in town. I'd highly recommend this home to anyone looking to stay in Kailua.

KAILUA GEM

  • 5 of 5
we stayed for 3 nights at Don/Mari's cottage and left feeling we should have stayed for more. Three things we noticed immediately when we arrived: - accessibility of the cottage from major attractions/beach/shops around Kailua as well as freeway to Honolulu/Waikiki - cleanliness & quietness of the cottage - and availability of Don/Mari to help with everything, from the house itself to advice in/around Kailua. We forgot our paperwork and arrived late, Mari immediately txted and faxed them so we can get the needed info immediately. They seem to be available 7/24, calling & txting whenever needed, ensuring we had the most memorable vacation. All the rooms are in one floor which helped us as we had elders that would have a hard time going up/down the stairs. The kitchen has just about everything you need, and you can save lots of money cooking and bbq in the patio which we often did. There is a spare queen bed in the large living room as well as bikes, surfboards, beach towels to use. All in all, we are very happy and look forward for our next stay there!!

Owner's Response: Budi,

Thank you for your kind comments. We are so glad you had a great stay. I know how important this trip was to you and to your family as it was your son's promotion ceremony on the Arizona Memorial. We always want to make sure that every guest gets the help and support they need in an unfamiliar environment - even in paradise.

Again, thank you and we look forward to seeing you and your family again.

Mahalo,

FANTASTIC, GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time in your home. First, the house was immaculately clean. We love to cook and when we did cook, everything we needed was there. We actually ate on the patio because it was so beautiful and peaceful outside. The house was close to the beach, we walked there and rode the bikes. Don and Mari were very helpful in pointing out great local places and helped us get settled on our arrival. Thank you, we'll be back.

Owner's Response: Michael,

We are glad you enjoyed our home so much. I know you tried some of our recommendations and it seems you were very happy - especially the best place to get shish-kabobs for grilling. We love that place.

Kailua is the quintessential beach town and is known for its world famous beach and quaint feel. I fell in love with this area at age 6 and it has never left my memory and heart at 56. Honestly, it is the sweetest place on earth!

This beautiful Kailua sanctuary for your family and friends is a 1200 sq ft home completely surrounded by 20 royal and 3 coconut palms with a hammock to enjoy the constant ocean breeze. There are two very cute bedrooms with queen size beds and an additional queen bed and a couch that converts to a queen. You could sleep 8 if you really love all of them, but 6 is very comfortable. There is a fully equipped kitchen with a bar and a beautiful dining room. If you enjoy outdoor cooking, there is a gas bar-b-que, two outdoor dining tables and patio seating (you can get some amazing Hawaiian shish kabobs and poke from Hibachi's in Kailua). There is also a washer/dryer, 47' flat screen, boogie boards, a surf board and snorkeling equipment. To get around, there are two folder bicycles and one Electra beach cruiser and a place to park your rental car.

The house is about 3/4 mile from beach access 89A (shown in the photo) and a very easy 5 minute bike ride or 15 minute walk on Duck Lane (not the official name, but there are lots of ducks on this beautiful boulevard).

The house is 25 minutes from the airport and has great access to the famous North Shore and if you want to try kite boarding or some great sea kayaking, Kailua Beach Park is the perfect spot. There are lots of sea turtles, too!
