Overview

Kailua House Rental Photos and Description

The property has not been advertised during 2016. Chance to stay ON THE BEACH.

Our BEACHFRONT home is designed to provide you with a perfect vacation retreat. You will be as close to the beach as a house can be built.

The beach of Kailua is renown for its fine white sand, blue green waters and safety. This is not a crowded beach, but has a pleasant neighborhood feel.

The 4 Bed/3.5 Bath house gives plenty of space. Upstairs/downstairs and corner bedrooms offer privacy when needed yet togetherness as desired. The 1300 sq ft wrap around lanai gives everyone the feeling of participating in the adventures, whether watching and yelling encouragement, or showing off newly learned water skills.

Our house has everything you need and a casual feeling that will make you feel right at home. The Hawaiian style furnishing and feeling has made our home recommended by some true Hawaiian leader as the best Hawaiian home available.

A garage FULL of BEACH TOYS, YARD TOYS, BBQ OPTIONS, TEAK LOUNGERS, ROCKERS, & TABLES will ensure that you never have a dull moment. The Large Yard allows for plenty of play as well as relaxation.

Kailua is a charming town that has many delicious restaurants and shopping for everyone. You can get all the essentials and find many things to take home as moments of you Hawaiian vacation.

Getting to attractions such a PEARL HARBOR, the NORTH SHORE, HANAUMA BAY is very simple.

The House : The house has 3 Bedrooms Upstairs and 1 in the Lower Level.

The Upper Master Suite has a king bed, full bathroom, and private access to the lanai.

Garden Bedroom has a queen bed and tranquil mountain views

2 Koa Wood Twin Beds furnish the Koa Bedroom which has great views of the beach and yard.

A Large Living Room opens onto the Lanai overlooking the ocean and wrapping around three sides of the house providing views of the beach, the yard, and the mountains. Comfortable couches allow for maximum relaxation while taking in the views of watching a DVD on the flat screen tv. The dining table is perfect for gathering around for dinner conversation.

Downstairs consists of a semi Private Suite with King Bed and Private Half Bathroom.

The Lower Living area features a galley style service kitchen which opens up to a dining area, sitting room, and full bath.

The lower common areas lead one DIRECTLY into the large and beautifully landscaped lawn

The Property : The entire home was designed to be a true representation of Hawaii.

The Plantation style architecture celebrates Hawaii’s heritage of sugar and pineapple plantations; workers and land owners on the plantations would live in homes stylistically similar to ours.

The interior décor of our home reflects this tradition as well while providing modern convenience and comfort. Our furnishings are made of woods and materials traditionally found on the islands, Koa and Bamboo, and we strive to keep the feel of Hawaii throughout the house with tastefully chosen accessories.

Extras: EVERYTHING for your beach vacation is provided with the house- towels, chairs, bbq grill, loads of Beach Boys, and an outdoor shower with hot and cold running water.

*The sounds and views of the beach, ocean, and surf are always within range*

About Kat

When we first visited Hawaii we knew we had found another Paradise. Within 4 months of our first visit to Hawaii, we purchased this home. We have been selectively renting our home since then.

We enjoy sharing this wonderful bit of Hawaii. It is such a beautiful place we cannot keep it only for ourselves. It is so much fun making new friends from around the world.

(Funny.....we live in Kailua Town, but when in Hawaii and you go to 'town', you are going to Honolulu.)

Kat purchased this house in 2000

Why Kat chose Kailua

We strive to make our home reflect all that is beautiful and pleasant about Hawaii. We want our guests to have a easy and memorable vacation. We think the magic of visiting Kailua on the Windward side of Oahu is the best possible choice for a holiday. Live in a home that arguably has the best location and views in Hawaii. The drive over the Pali Highway or H-3 is magical. The charm and comforts of Kailua town. There are many colorful shops but yet all the amenities of a big town. The restaurants are delicious, and you can enjoy different cuisine every night and not choose a favorite. Need we mention the amazing beach literally at your front door. Kailua Beach is ranked as one of the nations premier beaches and it is Hawaii's safest. It's 3 miles of pristine white sands and blue waters are best viewed from our home.

What makes this house unique

Possibly the best beach access, the best beach, the best accessorized home, in the best town in Hawaii.

We offer A Taste Of Hawaii----Last summer we hosted a family who was recommended to our home by a 'Hawaiian Kahuna' friend because 'this is the house that best represents what he wanted his vacationing mainland friends to experience in Hawaii'.

Relaxing Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at this beautiful home. The location, the beach, the Island, and the home owners were fantastic! We enjoyed how well stocked the house was - from beach toys to kitchen utensils. It was very easy for us to relax, enjoy the gorgeous views, and feel like we were at home. We are definitely planning on coming back. Thank you Dan!

AMAZING HAWAIIAN VACATION HOME!!

  • 5 of 5

My family absolutely loved this vacation home. It has everything that you need and it feels very at home. We loved the gorgeous views and the cool breeze that would blow through the windows all day. Dan made every effort to make sure we had everything that we needed and was available to answer every question we had. This house is the best place to stay in Kailua!!! It is very conveniently located and has amazing restaurants near by. You can not beat the beach views that this property offers. We can not wait to return to Oahu to stay at Dan's house.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at Dan's oceanfront paradise twice now because it is a magical place. The sound and sight of the ocean is so peaceful, and you cannot get a house closer to the beach. Dan is a great host: great communication, very considerate and accommodating. The house is well appointed. We had everything we needed for fun- boogie boards, surf boards, snorkels, kayaks, etc etc. the beach is absolutely gorgeous and not crowded. Dan's house is a paradise and you won't want to ever leave. We look forward to staying there again one day.

Kailua is a laid back little town with all the amenities you need: amazing Hawaiian restaurants (Hale Kealoha is a must try. Uahi island grill is also delicious). Whole foods and other grocery store is five min away, yoga studios nearby, and the best Malasada at Agnes Portugeuse Bake shop. It's better than Leonard's, hands down. There's a great reason why the Obamas vacationed in kailua for many years. It's a great town.

Life doesn't get any better!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation was to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary, accompanied by grown up children and grandchildren. It was the first time we ever rented a vacation home, but I seriously doubt if we could have chosen a better house or more genial host. Most of what I wanted to say has already been said by others, so will add that just taking in the scenery through the glass walls while relaxing comfortably in the upstairs living room of this beautiful plantation style home, or from its lanai, seemed to make all the cares of the world fade away. The house is right on the beach, unlike most others around the bay, which are set back some distance, so we had a grandstand view of the beach and ocean. Just imagine falling to sleep at night and then waking up in the morning to the sound of the crashing surf just feet away from your bedroom window, or slipping down to the beach, morning coffee in hand to enjoy the sunrise, or watching the grandkids play with the boogie boards and other toys in the clear aquamarine ocean water. Life doesn’t get any better! Dan couldn’t do enough for us. He made sure we had all we needed, yet remained completely unobtrusive.

Best Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family vacation. Grandparents can sit on the veranda and read and watch/take pictures of kids and grand children enjoying the beach and the ocean. Good beds and furniture and the kitchen is very well equipped and stocked. Lots of beach/ocean and other toys and equipment. If you enjoy cooking and don't like the cost/hassle/long waits of eating out in Hawaii, go to Whole Foods up the street to shop or pick up something at the Deli. Dan was very attentive. We took side trips to the Polynesian Cultural Center, Dole Plantation, and the North Shore. Stop at Kua Aina for a great hamburger while at the North Shore and snorkel at Shark's Cove.

Kailua Beach
Car: recommended

Our home is on Kailua Beach, just 42 feet across a perfectly manicured lawn to 3 miles of tropical waters and sand Beach.

Kailua Town is a charming beach town with many great restaurants and great shopping. There are some particularity good upscale restaurants along with delicious casual dining. The area has many grocery and drug stores and other services to make your stay easy. There are four Farmers Markets each week, two within a few blocks from home. We are uniquely located in the middle of Kailua Town, Whole Foods is the nearest market, but remote enough that you will not see or hear a car or traffic from the house for the duration of your stay. Access to Kailua town (and to Honolulu) is easy, no more than two corners to turn.

There is always beach activities to watch or join. In addition to sunbathing and beach novels there is great boogie boarding, kayaking, windsurfing, kitesurfing, stand up paddling, and many other ocean sports to enjoy.

Surprisingly enough you will often have the beach to yourself. Kalama Beach Park is a mile in one direction, Kailua Beach Park a mile in the other but it is pure beach to the beach parks and beyond.

Kailua is the perfect vacation spot, out of the hustle and bustle of Waikiki but a nice and comfortable community with amenities galore. Kailua Beach is known as a favorite among locals for its incredible beauty and peacefulness. We are just a 30 minute drive from many of the local tourist attractions like Pearl Harbor, but you will feel a world away while enjoying our home.

Golf: Hawaii has some of the Best golf courses in the US. All of the courses on Oahu are easily accessible from our home

Closest courses and distances:

MId Pac Country Club-2.3 miles

Lauana HIlls Country Club-3m

Olomana Golf Links-5.7m

Pali Golf Course-4.5m

Fall is the best time to visit Hawaii. The summer heat is past yet the water retains the summer warmth. The winds and rains are less and best of all, the tourists are fewer.
