KAILUA COTTAGE - 250 STEPS TO PARADISE

Kailua Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

E komo mai to The Cottage at Hale Makai - our piece of island paradise in Kailua. Lying alongside a fabulous three-mile stretch of protected beach, Kailua is a small town on the windward side of Oahu. With no hotels in town, only local residents and visitors who rent vacation homes get to enjoy our island lifestyle. Kailua Beach was one of TripAdvisor's emerging "hot spots" for 2007 and is routinely voted one of the best beaches in the world by Dr. Beach. Your family will love this kama'aina (local) way to enjoy Hawaii.

You couldn't ask for a more perfect location! Set up for couples or small families, our one-bedroom, one-bath detached cottage is just 250 steps from Kailua Beach. Pick up your cappuccino at the Kalapawai Market on your walk to the beach every morning and your shave ice (snow cone) at Island Snow every afternoon on your walk home. Your family will love this Kama'aina (local) way to enjoy Hawaii.

Kailua town, with its restaurants, shopping, and entertainment is just a mile away. And, in just a short car ride, you can swim with the dolphins at Sea Life Park, snorkel in Hanauma Bay, hike the stunning Ko'olau mountains, swim/surf the North Shore, browse the "Swap Meet" at the Aloha Stadium, sample Honolulu's nightlife, walk Waikiki Beach, or get to the airport.

Kick back. Our cottage has been furnished in island style to make your stay relaxing and enjoyable. You will feel right at home while you barbecue dinner on the lanai, wander to and from the beach, watch movies or cable TV, play games with the family or drift off to sleep in the comfortable new bed. We also have wireless internet access if you have to stay connected!

The detached one-bedroom, one-bath cottage has a queen-size bed in a separate bedroom and queen-size sofa bed in the living room (sleeps two to three comfortably, sleeps 4 if the children are small), kitchen/eating area, and covered patio with a Weber gas grill and outdoor furniture. Includes access to all the beach toys - boogie boards, sand toys, beach chairs/mats/towels and cooler.

Located on a large lot with a separate, three-bedroom, two-bath detached house, the cottage is available to rent separately or together with the house for larger groups.

NOTE ABOUT AVAILABILITY: You can check availability of the cottage alone by clicking on the calendar on this listing. For availability for the house, see the calendar link on vrbo listing #55006. For availability for both, see vrbo listing #101378.

Great spot for a family getaway

Our family of 3 (including a 2-year old) stayed here in late November right before Thanksgiving. The cottage was exactly as advertised: it's right around the corner from the Kalapawai Market, which in turn is at the entrance to Kailua Beach Park. We settled into a relaxing daily rhythm that included coffee from the market, a walk in to town for breakfast, then beach time. We did have a car and used it occasionally but would have done just fine without one. It's about a mile from downtown Kailua where you have your choice of good eats as well as a well-stocked Whole Foods.

The cottage was nicely appointed with amenities that made us feel at home, including a gas stove and a nicely maintained propane grill so that we were able to cook at home a few times. The bedroom was big enough to set up our 2-year old in a pack-n-play and the manicured yard was a great place for him to stretch his legs. Lisa was a gracious and responsive host; we definitely recommend and would stay here again!

Wonderful experience

We had a wonderful stay at the Kailua Cottage. It's a 1 minute walk to coffee, 1 short block to the great Kailua Beach park, and walking distance to a small strip mall, and 2 - 3 minutes drive to downtown. Buzz's Grill is walking distance.

The cottage is very comfortable. Lisa asked for feedback regarding any possible improvements and I can't think of any. There is a beautiful soft lawn to lie, stretch, exercise etc on, and the rooms are great. The barbeque worked perfectly. The towels are ginormous.

The guests in the main house were fantastic and I suspect Lisa selects all her guests very carefully. There is good barrier privacy between the cottage and house, but we found the other guests to be pleasant to talk with, without being at all intrusive.

My girl and I spent several days in this cozy cottage located around the corner from Kailua Beach Park and thoroughly enjoyed being so close to the amazing beach. The cottage was well equipped for those who like to cook and was a quiet oasis for those leaving the urban centers of the world. Everything went smoothly in booking this property and would gladly refer friends and family to enjoy it at another future date.

The cottage is a perfect size for a couple. The photos are totally accurate. It is nicely furnished,
very clean and stocked with anything you could possibly need for your stay. It truly is only a few steps to the most incredible beach....miles of blue blue water and white sand. It is a great beach to take walks on and the water is warm and great for swimming (no giant waves). The store is just steps away as well and has great take out food (or you can eat in) as well as any grocery items, beer, wine etc you may need. There are also a number of larger grocery stores and restaurants in Kailua just a short drive from the cottage. There was a family staying in the house on the property as well the same time we were there. It was not an inconvenience in any way to have them next door. We would certainly stay here again if the opportunity came up.
