Overview

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.

About Don Fenstermaker To ensure inquiries are received, always email and call us!

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.

Why Don Fenstermaker To ensure inquiries are received, always email and call us! chose Kailua

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!

Owner's Response: Thomas and Kristina,

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!

Mahalo and Aloha,

Don and Mari

Great place to stay in Kailua

  • 4 of 5
We are a family of 3 (mom, dad, toddler) who stayed here. There was plenty of room for us! The house is situated behind another house, just off the busy Oneawa street. All the town's amenities are just a mile down the road. The house had most amenities (hair dryer, toaster, microwave, stove/oven, coffee maker, washer/dryer, outdoor BBQ, etc) and even had some communal boogie boards, kids beach toys, snorkel gear. We also really liked the DVD collection of movies and big screen for the evenings. The property also has its own backyard, complete with patio furniture and a hammock. The least desirable aspect of the property was getting onto Oneawa Street. Lots of traffic in both directions, with obstructed view of traffic. The most desirable aspect of the property was the size of it. Large kitchen/dining room. The owners, Mari and Don, were most excellent to deal with. They were very kind and seemed to genuinely care that we have an enjoyable stay at their property. They checked in on us via e-mail and even called our house to see that we returned home OK! They were very attentive to our needs and offered advice on local places. I would recommend staying here!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you had a great time. Kailua is a very popular beach town and Oneawa Street is the most obvious way into Kailua town. For our future guests, there is an easier way to go to Kailua Town. N. Kainalu Dr is 1/4 mile towards the ocean, with zero traffic. It parallels Oneawa and takes you right into Kailua Town. This means a very easy right turn from our drive. We will be including this in our map to the beach accesses for our future guests. (We are adding the toddler eating utensils, as you suggested.) Mahalo, Mari and Don.

Great Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We are a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 teenage girls) and this place was more than enough for us. We had an awesome time at this house, we had all the amenities of home and little bit more. The girls enjoyed all the beach toys as well as the bikes provided. The house was super clean and very well stocked with clean bathroom towels as well as lots of beach towels. Its a beautiful property with enough backyard to relax after a long day at the beach. The BBQ grill was an added bonus, we got to enjoy it several times. We would definitely come back and gladly recommended to our friends and family. Thanks Don and Mary for your excellent and painless process of renting your place. Hope to be back soon.

Owner's Response: Jorge and Lupita,

Thank you for your kind words. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay. We have spent many evenings in the yard and on the patio. It is so nice to relax under those royal palms with the trades wafting through them after a day at the beach. I have fallen asleep more than once in the hammock with that sound. (As I am writing this, I can hear it - time to go back!)

Mahalo,

Mari and Don

"Girls" get away

"Girls" get away
  • 5 of 5
I say "girls" cause the the youngest of the group turned 30 on the day after we got there. The oldest is 80. The Kailua Beach Cottage was delightful. It is conveniently located right off H3, which made it easy to get to and from Honolulu. We basically used it as a base of operation on our assault of Oahu. The beds was comfortable, the house was clean, there was plenty of towels, and beach toys. The house is very private, tucked between 2 other homes just off the main street. The beach is over a mile away, so I would say you need a car, especially if you are venturing further than Kailua.

Owner's Response: Roni,
We are so glad you had a great time. One thing we including in our packet for future guests is a map for all of the Kailua Beach accesses. There are 3 accesses, the northern most, 89A, is 1/2 mile from our house. It is not obvious though. We are including a map with the parking spot (if you drive) for this access. Most people go to the Southern most assess, the beach park in Kailua Town. You need to bike or take a car to this access as Kailua beach is nearly 4 miles long. So, it is a bit of a distance from our house. All of Kailua Beach is stunning. We like the Northern part is less used, so is more private. Mahalo, Mari and Don.

Perfect for our family

  • 5 of 5
This house was perfect for my family. We have two teenage boys (17 and 18) and two young adult girls (20 and 22). The girls shared a room and the boys slept in the bed and pull-out in the living room, while we took the other bedroom. If your family/friends don't mind sharing a room/bed for a short time, this could be perfect for you too. The description of the house was very accurate and the photos were as well. The property was clean and well-maintained, although there were geckos all over the place - a friend of mine who lives down the street has the same issue - but that didn't bother us at all as it seems that's normal in the area. The owners were completely available and incredibly pleasant and hospitable. I especially appreciate their flexibility as they allowed us to check in a bit early (a couple of hours) and went out of their way to make that happen when we asked at the last minute. They even checked in on us during our stay to make sure all was going well. I would definitely recommend this place to a friend and would love to come back and stay again.
There are a few eateries in the area I would recommend. For breakfast, I loved Cinnamon's. Diichi Ramen was great for dinner as was Buzz's and Maui Taco is great for lunch. Lanikai Juice is a must. As for attractions, Lanikai Beach and Kailua Beach are beautiful and shouldn't be missed.

Wedding party preparations - Mari & Don are so wonderful!

Wedding party preparations - Mari & Don are so wonderful!
  • 5 of 5
I booked this wonderful property for a friend's wedding - the ceremony was taking place at a nearby church and the bride wanted somewhere close for us all to get ready for the wedding. Mari & Don were absolutely WONDERFUL throughout the whole process. Booked the property about 3 months in advance and Mari was very efficient with touching base with me every so often to provide any updates and just to make sure we would be prepared for our stay. Very helpful, beyond responsive, and just so so friendly and great to coordinate with!

When we got to the property, I was BLOWN AWAY with how well stocked everything was!! The house was also very spacious with GENEROUS sleeping room (which isn't easy to find - THREE beds, 2 couches, and tons tons of floor space for sleeping bags, you could easily sleep a small army!) and everything you could imagine you would need to make you feel at home and NOT on a vacation/staycation. The property gave off a very comfortable, homey feel and I did not want to leave! There was enough space for at least 10 people to run around and get ready for an early wedding ceremony.

The location of the house is also very convenient, close enough for shopping and easily accessible to buslines and major roadways. I highly recommend Mari & Don and their gorgeous property!! Great people, wonderful house, amazing experience. Thanks Mari & Don for a stupendous little staycation and great space for preparing for the wedding! Hope to be able to come back and enjoy a proper staycation :)

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!
