About Richard Lewis

I am the CEO of a software company that has had to relocate to Ventura, CA. I came to Hawaii in 1987 from North Carolina and fell in love with the state and the island of Oahu. To escape the hectic pace of Honolulu I moved to Kailua in 2007. Kailua is definitely the best place on Oahu to live and vacation. Small town feel, safe, friendly people, gorgeous beaches, and wonderful weather. I am an avid Crossfitter and exercise enthusiast and love being outside as much as possible.

Richard Lewis purchased this house in 2007

Why Richard Lewis chose Keolu Hills

This location is central to everything. Close to the Enchanted Lake Shopping Center, close to Kailua town and close to the beaches. It is on a nice, quiet residential street and is a large, 9500 square foot flat lot. I also love the privacy of the large walled back yard.

What makes this house unique

The house has high, open-beam ceilings and an open floor plan. The back lanai extends the living space out into the yard under the palm trees. The private back yard is great for sun tanning, grilling and playing volleyball or catch. I enjoy entertaining friends, using the outdoor shower, cooking out and sitting out under the stars at night.

Nice clean property in a great location

  • 4 of 5

Nice clean property in a great location. Well stocked home, comfy beds and well appointed living area. We stayed with a family of 5 and there was ample room for everyone. Very close walking distance to restaurants and grocery store. Would definitely recommend this place to friends!

Clean comfortable private

  • 5 of 5

This property was everything promised, worked well for 4 adults and would be as comfortable with 6. We enjoyed sitting on the patio with morning coffee and watching the birds, walking to Safeway, Starbucks and nearby eats. Enjoyed the little house gecko for a couple of days (heard they are good luck). Appreciated being out of the traffic. Being our first visit to Oahu, we were busy everyday seeing the sights and did not take as much as beach time as we would have liked. Richard was very accommodating when we needed to find new lodging 3 days before arriving due to a major plumbing problem. This was always on our list but thought we wanted closer to the beach. We were not at all disappointed and would stay here again if we return to Oahu.

The house was absolutely everything we could have asked for!

  • 5 of 5

Check in and check out were very simple processes and the house was clean and ready for us as promised. The beds are all extremely comfortable and the rooms are setup great. The location of the house is great with Safeway, restaurants, and bars all within walking distance. Lanikai Beach is a quick 5-10 minute drive. The house comes comes fully equipped with anything you can imagine. The only thing missing is an oven but there is a fairly large toaster/oven which did the trick for us! We would highly recommend a stay here and we may even plan to stay again in the future if it is available for us! Thanks so much to our awesome host for a vacation we will never forget!

Very welcoming home!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect and had everything I was looking for in a vacation home! The house is stocked with the basics like dish soap, laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, etc. WiFi worked great! Air conditioning units kept home at comfort temperature. The owner was very accommodating and quick to respond when we had questions. I would absolutely rent this home again.

Perfect Location.

  • 5 of 5

The home is located in a perfect location. It is close to different beaches, shops and groceries and many interesting places to visit. If you want action, then you drive to Waikiki and walk the ‘strip’ with lots of malls and restaurants. You can come home and relax in your quiet backyard with fruit trees.

The home is very lovely with 1800 sq.ft. with a large living room and 3 good sized bedrooms.

I would definitely stay here again. We were 5 adults for two weeks and had plenty of room.

Great place for a family

  • 4 of 5

This was a great vacation location for a family! Close to beaches, shopping, and hiking, and also with a quiet, fenced yard and nice bbq setup for some down time after being at the beach all day!
