All that you read about it and much more

  • 5 of 5

I was really happy with this place. The residential space is large enough for 5 adults to sleep comfortably. It's clean and it feels new. The access to it is separate from the rest of the house. It has a covered lanai, in case it rains you can still stay outside. It also has a grass lawn to lay down or hang out in the sun. The beach has private access and it is smooth, there are no rocks in the water. The beach is literally behind the house. And John, he is so cool and layed back. He is there if you need him and out of the way if you don't. We met him when we first arrived at the property and asked him for things to do and places to eat. He typed a list of them and every single one was on point, and worthy. I don't ever write reviews, but this place deserves it. I hope to go back soon.

An awesome place in Kailua

  • 5 of 5

John's place is pretty amazing. Steps from the Kailua beach, which many times we had all to ourselves. Our family of four stayed here comfortably and we'd hit the beach when the sun came up, and sometimes did night time walks as well. Very quiet, but close enough to town to get groceries or dinner without hassle. John was super nice and helpful, providing tips on the island, surfing, etc. I'd highly recommend staying here.

Perfect stay for enjoying Kailua Beach

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable stay. John was a very supportive and responsive host. Our sons (12 and 14) loved the beach, that you reach in less than a minute. We would return without hesitation whenever we would have the chance.

** BEST PARADISE FAMILY VACATION **

  • 5 of 5

The beach house is located at the end of a cul-de-sac. So it's very private with our own beach entrance. It's literally less than a minute walk so it's super convenient! The home is great for a family of four. Our girls were very comfortable in their room. The master bedroom is large with plenty of windows to let the cool ocean breeze in. There's also AC. The kitchen had all the essentials for cooking. There's also a grill. No cooking for us since we planned on enjoying all the local grinds. There's a washer and dryer as well. We rented a car so getting around was super easy. For food, Safeway is located in Aikahi which is less than a 3 minute drive. If you want to hit Kailua town, that's less than five minutes. There's Target, Times Market, and WholeFoods. There's also tons of places to eat. Overall, our island experience could not have been possible without John who was very welcoming! This trip was to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday. We could have not asked for a more perfect home, location and host. We highly recommend this place for a family who wants a fantastic and comfortable time! Mahalo!

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our 2 teenage kids. It was perfect for the 4 of us. Very clean and updated. No oven, but there is a gas grill just outside the door. The unit is located at the back of the main house so it is nice and quiet. The biggest reason we chose this rental was the close distance to the beach. It's about a 30 second (if that) walk from the house to the gate to the beach! What is even better is that this part of the beach is private. That's why there's a locked gate. It is so nice because there was hardly anyone down there. Other than people walking or running on the beach. The beaches farther down from us were a lot more crowded because they are open to the public.

John is really cool! Very informative with any questions about the island.

For grocery shopping I recommend going to Safeway about a mile up the main road. We went to Foodland one time because we were in downtown and it was really expensive.

Definitely recommend staying here!

Perfect location, great apartment!

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is a great place to stay if you want to be steps away from a gorgeous beach, where you can work (morning and evening beach walk), rest (sit and let the world go by) & play (surf / body board).

The apartment is modern and clean and has the all amenities you require for a holiday (as long as you don’t mind washing a few dishes). Even if you do feel something is lacking/missing, don’t worry as the host John is extremely friendly and accessible. He gave us lots of good tips for shopping / eating / visiting.

Extras such as beach chairs, snorkels, beach umbrella and bodyboards (and good outside storage for these) really make a difference when you are travelling from a distance (Scotland) and can’t pack these items.

Kailua is a small town, with lots to offer. We had a car (parking easy at the apartment), which made getting to town centre simple and there you have access to a good range of shops / restaurants / coffee houses etc.

Whole Foods became a daily visit!

I loved the 12 days I spent on Oahu. The island has a lot to offer and Kailua is the perfect place to make as your base.

Don't forget to try the Shaved Ice!
