KAILUA BEACH JUST A FEW MINUTES AWAY FROM YOUR OWN SLICE OF HEAVEN!!

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.

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.

Amazing beach

Mari and Don were fantastic hosts answering all my questions immediately and dealing quickly with any concerns that arose. The house is a 5 minute drive from an amazing and uncrowded beach, though get there before 11 on weekends to get parking. Kailua is a great town to get around, lots of places to eat, and get supplies, yet we were only 30 minutes away from Honolulu.

We much preferred staying in Kailua to Honolulu where our meetings were taking place. The rest of the family much enjoyed the beautiful nearby beach (and playground!), the wonderful house with garden and plenty of space, and the responsive hosts. Thanks much, we had a great time and can recommend this property to anyone!

Great family place

We recently stayed in this nice home in Kailua. It was a great spot for our family. The great room was a nice place to relax and play games in the evening and had plenty of space for our 5 people. We enjoyed the kitchen which had everything we could need. We took walks to see the sunrise on the beach and loved this location in Kailua. We spent lots of time on the beach in Kailua along with hiking the pill box trail. Loved the Kailua community with the farmers market. Great place and highly recommend.

Owner's Response: We love the Pill Box Trail. It is so interesting to see the remnants of the WWII defenses. We also recommend, that is you or your children have not seen the Pearl Harbor Memorial, it is a must see. Pearl Harbor is very easy to get to from our home. The experience is very moving as the National Park Service and the Navy do a great job in explaining the attack, what lead to it, and what a monumental task was ahead for the United States. As you stare down into the twisted hulk of the USS Arizona and watch the fuel oil bubbles from her still leaking tanks rise to the surface, you realize they were the greatest generation. Go early and allow a full day. There is much to see and absorb and contemplate. My 7-year old was fascinated with it and she still asks questions.
Thank you for your kind comments. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Owner's Response: Mia and Dan,

We were very glad to be able to meet you. Thank you for your patience while we had the new washer and dryer installed. I really enjoyed driving Dan around Kailua in the Jeep on the mini-tour. We wish we could meet all of our guests. I agree, Kailua beach is stunning.

Mahalo,

Thank you Don & Mari! We absolutely loved your home! We really enjoyed Kailua and didn't want to leave. We tried out a lot of the restaurants you suggested and weren't disappointed. Kailua beach is beautiful, so we spent a lot of time there. Our Grandson loved playing with the geckos and we really enjoyed the hammock in the backyard. Would definitely come back!

Owner's Response: Cindy,

We are so glad you enjoyed our home. We are actually in the house right now. (It was the first open time in the house schedule in a very long time.) We were here upgrading a few things - new washer/dryer, window treatments, etc. We love it here too. Mari loves to walk that beautiful beach. It is four miles of white soft sand. I love to snorkel, especially to Flat Island.

I am glad your grandson loved the geckos. My daughter loves playing with them too. They do not forget those things.

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!
