The address is 34 Puukani Pl. Kailua, HI.
A private setting in a detached home on a wonderful street!
To answer the most common question, yes, we are 'steps' away: 80 medium sized steps for me! The beach is down a sandy path and is a one of the world's best. We are located near the beach park in Kailua.
The unit is a freestanding, not connected to the main home. It has its own entrance from the street. It is not a room in a home and we do not serve breakfast (sorry) but you get privacy!
The main part of the house is an 'L' shaped room with the kitchen at one end and a queen-size bed at the other. The middle of the ‘L’ has a sofa and chair. The separate bedroom has two twin beds. The kitchen and bath were remodeled in the fall of 2014 and look great! There kitchen is equipped with anything you need for cooking. There is a phone and TV with VCR/DVD and a wireless internet connection. The inside is very nice. There is parking for one car on the street. There are more pictures at our stepstobeachdotcom site.
There are two vendors within walking distance for windsurfing equipment. One is Naish Hawaii: Please ask us for their phone number. They have equipment on the beach. Kailua Sailboards and Kayaks rents kayaks and bikes as well: Please ask us for their phone number. There are plenty of good restaurants in Kailua we can tell you about when you are here.
No Smoking in the guesthouse or on the premises please.
We stayed in this rental for a week at the beginning of the year, and it was perfect for our family. The location is ideal - we could walk to the beach in less than a minute, it's an easy walk to Kailua town, and a quick drive to the other places we planned to go. The guesthouse was clean and had all the amenities we needed. The owners were friendly and welcoming (in hindsight, I think our kids played soccer together at some point many years ago!). We had a great visit, and would definitely stay again on our next trip!
My husband, our 5 year old and 7 year old boys and my mother in law stayed for two weeks in August and this place truly became like home. It is very spacious, with the full kitchen and plenty of space and the proximity to the beach was perfect. We would go to the beach every day and it was nice to be so close to the guesthouse and run back to use the bathroom or grab a cold drink. Mark and Lisa were very friendly and never bothered us, but were right there if we needed them. My only complaints were that it was kinda hot in the cottage for our stay and it would be nice to see the place decorated a little cuter and with an actual living room area. It's such a cute place and I think it would be a lot of fun to decorate and add some color! But overall, we absolutely loved our stay and we can't wait to go back! Perfect for a family!
Our trip to Kailua was nothing but fantastic, and we would stay at the guesthouse just steps from the beach again in a heartbeat! It was perfect for our family, and we enjoyed the beautiful beaches in Kailua and nearby Lanikai, which was a very short drive. Mark and Lisa were very accommodating, letting us use their bbq grill for our stay. It was very peaceful and quiet in the area, which made it feel truly more relaxing. Thank you again, Mark and Lisa! Look forward to returning!
Pictures do not do it justice. Quite roomy, with a large kitchen area -- nothing fancy, but well maintained and clean. Location is absolutely perfect for the beach and for getting around town via bike or foot. To top it off, owners Mark and Lisa could not be nicer! I can't wait to return....
There were five of us that stayed in the beach house. Myself, husband, two children, and my mother. The house was absolutely perfect in every way! The pictures do not do the house justice and everything that you would need is available to you. The beach is right down a private path and is breathtaking. The house was very clean and very well maintained. During our stay we saw gardeners, painters, and exterminators (by the way we saw NO bugs, a few lizards that we welcome and my kids loved them). The people working around the outside of the house were quiet friendly and were no problem at all. We didn't get to meet the owners but we did communicate through email and he was always very quick with his responses and very helpful, and the ladies watching the house in the beginning of our stay were very nice. The area is very nice as well. One tip if you have children do not go to Buzz steakhouse as they are not child friendly at all and treated us terrible. Baci bistro was a great place to eat but make a reservation. The rental is wonderful and I would recommend it to everyone!! Book it because you will not be disappointed!
We stayed at the "Guest House" for 10 days and enjoyed it immensely. Location, location, location! Our goal was to beach it, and this property was perfect for us. The accomodations were exactly as depicted in pics, and we wanted for nothing. Mark, Lisa and family were very friendly and helpful. The accomodations were clean and it was a delight to come "home" at the end of a day and relax. The proximity to town was perfect for walking, biking or a very quick drive. The beach is awesome, people were friendly, and it was a wonderful getaway. Hope to come back!
