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. Kailua Beach is routinely voted one of the best beaches in the world and, with no hotels in town, only local residents and visitors who rent vacation homes get to enjoy our island lifestyle. 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 a little more than 1/2 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, or drift off to sleep in the comfortable 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), 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 and an initial supply of paper and soap products.
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.

My husband and I have had this property for about 25 years. At first, we rented it out to regular tenants but that limited our opportunities to use the place ourselves. Since my husband's family had lived in Kailua for many years during their high school years and had many fond memories of the island, we wanted to be able to bring our own family back to Kailua on a regular basis and create our own family memories. About 8 years ago, we decided to convert to vacation rentals and have been able to enjoy many happy days as a family here. We hope that you find our place as comfortable for your family as we do for ours!

Being located right around the corner from Kailua Beach Park means that you can go back and forth to the beach all day without loading and unloading everything into and out of the car. I love being able to pick up my latte at the Kalapawai Market in the morning before my beach stroll, and we have a family ritual of shave ice every afternoon from Island Snow (President Obama's favorite before-dinner snack with his kids!)
We had a blast in Kailua especially staying at the cottage! Thank you soo very much for everything! The cottage had everything that we needed. It's a home away from home! We'll probably return there sometime soon hopefully. We'll always keep your place in mind!
I stayed here with my husband and our 7 yr old for 9 days. We had a fantastic time. The cottage is very clean and pleasant. The private lanai and grill, w/d, outdoor heated shower, nice linens, boogie boards and well-outfitted kitchen were great. The convenience of being so close the beach and Kalapawai Store made our swim/eat/nap/repeat routine very easy and we could maximize our time on the beach. The owner and manager were very pleasant. Can't wait to get back there again!
Thoroughly enjoyed our week there, especially the easy walk to the beach followed by breakfast on the lanai. Barely noticed the people in the other house. My son found putting the couch cushions on the floor to be more comfortable than the sofabed. Owner and manager are very nice. Highly recommended!
My husband and I spent 10 days in the cottage over the holidays. I fell in love with the location and the cottage itself. I walked on the beach every morning without the hassle of driving to the beach! The cottage is small, but comfortable, convenient, and very cute! It was great to have off road parking and a washer and dryer for our own use. We definitely will stay again. A real gem in Kailua!
This was my first time in the cottage - and my first time in Hawaii. The cottage is in the perfect location - a quiet and peaceful setting and a quick walk to the beach, easy driving distance to everywhere. Also highly recommended is the little store on the way to the beach - coffee is great and so is the food. The cottage is well-outfitted for doing at least some of your own cooking - fully furnished kitchen and a grill on the lanai. Two of my favorite things: the beach was never crowded AND in the evenings I could sit out on the lanai and hear the surf and the wind in the trees!
This was our 2nd time at this cottage. You can't beat the location. It is by far one of the best in Kailua. A 30 second walk to Kalapawai Market and less than 2 miniutes to the beach.
The cottage is well outfitted for cooking if you choose and is very comfortable. I guess the real test is asking yourself if you would rent it again...and the answer is absolutely!
We had a fantastic vacation, and this was the perfect location. We rented the house and cottage together, because our entire family was there for a wedding. Great place. We used the Webber grill outside, and it was really nice to have our own washer and dryer at the cottage. Steps from the little Market (where we actually ate quite a few of our meals-awesome food), and very short walk to the beach. Lots of beach toys with the cottage as well. We were impressed.
