Kuulei Tract Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2)

Come and enjoy our island home with us. Koi Palms Cottage is located within our gated property alongside our lovely Koi pond, in the quaint town of Kailua. The owners live on the property in the main house.

The cottage is a 600 square foot 1 bedroom unit. The kitchen is equipped with 2 induction hot plates with stainless steel cookware and a convection oven / microwave oven suitable for baking. A full size refrigerator, dishwasher and a large granite island complete the kitchen space. The bedroom has a king sized bed with luxury linens and a flat screen TV. The living room area is comfortable and inviting. With a 40 inch LED Smart TV and a small library of books from titles we've read to books guests have left behind. Feel free to take one for the plane ride home.

Stroll two blocks to the white sands of Kailua Beach with your morning coffee or tea to see a breathtaking sunrise or through Kailua town at night. Relax and enjoy the tumbling waters of our pond and its colorful Koi fish dancing below your windows. The vacation cottage has one parking space and a private entrance.

This is a non-smoking property.

  • 5 of 5

We loved or stay here and would choose this place again. This place is exactly liked pictured. The kitchen is great with everything you need. The chair and futon couch in living room are extremely comfortable and the TV has great cable with more than plenty of stations. We enjoyed the Kailu Beach Park which is very nice and close with plenty of easy parking and owner had book recommending this great place as well as a few local restaurants that we tried. They also have a great TV in bedroom with a King Size bed that was very comfortable and decor is beautiful. We were able to hang our clothes and use the dresser for everything. The bathroom is great and shower is awesome. Air conditioning was in kitchen/living room and a another in the bedroom and work extremely well (had to make husband turn it up as he was freezing me out lol). The provided lines were extremely nice, loved the Tommy Bahama beach towels. We washed clothes in the washing machine and dryer that were very nice. The beach chairs were great as well as umbrella, boggy boards and ice chest. All in all we could not have asked for a better place to stay. I would highly recommend this place for a couple that wanted a nice comfortable place to stay. I would not change a thing, and I am usually very picky about the places we stay. We were there with family that had all stayed at different places and ours was by far the most beautiful and most comfortable. Thank you for having a beautiful place with very reasonable rates.

Perfect retreat/wonderful owners

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for eight nights and loved every minute of it. The description of property and location is absolutely accurate. The owners care for this as if it was their very own space. It is clean and beautiful, updated, comfortable, and stocked with everything anyone would need. The koi pond is such a sweet bonus, relaxing and right outside the window. The neighborhood is beautiful and the walk to the beach is easy and very safe. The location is perfect for walking into town as well and there are more choices of restaraunts and shopping than anyone could hope for. The landscaping is like a little tropical paradise. Tricia has just the right approach, happy to help with any questions or concerns but totally respectful of privacy. This was one of the best rentals I have ever stayed. Thank you so much!

Great location in a quiet neighborhood in Oahu

  • 5 of 5

I was very pleased with the overall experience at the cottage. It was a nice quiet getaway and away from the craziness of Waikiki. I would recommend this place for anyone looking for a peaceful vacation in Oahu.

Great location! Spotless and well equipped cottage.

  • 5 of 5

I had such a relaxing time at the cottage. The description was exactly as I found the property. I appreciated that you ( host ) were available but didn't 'hover' during my stay. Thanks for the absolutely comfortable and spotless cottage! Enjoyed the beach accoutrements: chairs, towels, umbrella. And an added bonus of a washer and dryer!

Great stay and thanks for opening your beautiful cottage as a rental!

Clean and updated cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at many rentals over the years and the Koi Palms is one of the best places we have ever rented. This rental is in a great neighborhood, short walk to the beach, clean and very comfortable.

The bed was very comfortable. We both have bad backs, so it was a plus to have a good mattress. This unit had AC in the kitchen/living area and the bedroom. We didn't need the AC most days, but having the option to use the AC in the bedroom at night was an added plus.

I can't think if anything we needed while staying a Koi Palms. We made use of the grill, beach chairs, umbrella and cooler that were provided for our stay.

We would definitely stay here again.

Car: not necessary

Koi Palms Luxury Cottage is conveniently located within walking distance of world famous Kailua Beach and Kailua town restaurants and shops. We love to scroll the beach at sunrise and then walk to town in the early evening for a fantastic meal at Sangs Sushi Bar and Thai restaurant .
