Cool and breezy, this is a second-story suite in a quiet area with private entrance and off-street parking on the beautiful Windward side of Oahu. Only a two-minute walk (300 yards) to the white sand of world famous Kailua Beach.
Over 1000 square feet of living space includes a large master bedroom/sitting room, huge walk-in closet, full bathroom, 2nd sleeping/living room with well equipped kitchenette with dining area and desk with free wi-fi connection. New whisper quiet split AC keep the suite cool, or if you prefer fresh air, , large ceiling fans, plenty of windows and sliding doors circulate the ocean breezes.
Sleeps 5 comfortably, with 2 Queen beds and a twin bed. If you are traveling as a family, the adults can have the bedroom/sitting room, while the children sleep/play/relax in the other room. This suite can also be connected to our adjoining studio suite (for an extra cost), making a 3 bedroom, 2 bath suite.
With high cathedral ceilings and very spacious, airy rooms, our guests often comment that the suite is much larger than the pictures can portray, and has a very comfortable, homey feel.. You can easily cook light meals in the kitchenette, as there is a glass top hot plate, a toaster oven, electric skillet, microwave, coffee maker and kettle. There is also a gas BBQ grill outside with a table and chairs for 4 for an outside eating option.
We provide beach chairs, boogie boards, a beach umbrella, cooler, and beach towels. The beach is a short 2-4 minute walk from the suite, being only 300 yards away, so it's easy to walk back and forth several times a day if you want..There's an outside shower for rinsing sand off before you come inside. If you like to rise early, it's really special to catch the sunrise and take an early walk along the beach, which is 2.5 miles of white sand with no rocks. Many of our guests have commented that even after checking out many of the beaches on the island, they prefer Kailua Beach best out of them all. Kailua Beach was actually voted the #1 beach in the US in 2014. It's also a family-friendly beach, as the waves don't ever get very big (unless there's a storm or front coming through). Lanikai Beach, another popular family friendly beach, is only 5 minutes or less by car.
Kailua town is only a couple of minutes from the suite by car, and it has grocery stores, restaurants, cafes, and some good shops and boutiques, as well as Target and Whole Foods. It's a nice town to stroll around and there's good shopping there.
Kailua is actually a central location, as Honolulu and the city attractions are about 30 minutes to the South of the suite, and the North shore and Windward coast attractions are about 40-50 minutes to the North. Waimanalo Beach, Hanauma Bay, Sea Life Park, and Mokapu Beach and Lighthouse hike are between 20-35 minutes along the coast to the South also, so Kailua is a very central place to stay as a base .
I have nothing but good things to say about this place and Amanda .it was hard for me to pick someplace on the Internet so far away with only trusting what I read,but I am so happy I picked it! It's huge clean,and beautiful. Great neighborhood. Felt very safe.locals so nice,and the beach so close and the most beautiful beach I've ever seen. Amanda is very nice and I will hope to be able to go again someday.we had our family with us for my daughters wedding and my sister and her son stayed in the downstairs unit. It was perfect! Thank you Amanda . Dianna
Mandy's property is a very cozy, quiet and safe oasis for our family of five, including a 17 months old toddler. The house is in a great location being so close to the beach. And you can drive five minutes to the shopping area in Kailua. You will get mostly what you need in this house, light cooking equipment, towels, board games, DVDs, books, etc. If one thing that I probably need more was shampoo and body wash. Of course, you can just bring a travel size shampoo and body wash on your own.
We also loved Mandy's family, her dog and cat. It was great experience for us. Thank you Mandy!
We enjoyed our stay here. The suite was clean and comfortable. It was tastefully decorated and had a great kitchenette and updated bathroom. Our family of 5 had lots of space. The walk to the beach was short and the kids loved the boogie boarding! We used this as our base for hikes to local waterfalls and botanical gardens as well as the snorkelling at Hanauma Bay. The town of Wailua and the beach are much quieter than Waikiki where we have stayed in the past. The property owners were helpful and friendly.
Clean, comfortable, very short walk to beach, plenty of beach towels, coffee was nice touch. Small caveats: door between two sleeping areas slatted, so not super private. Checkout is early-ish(10). A mirror in the super-roomy walk-in closet would have been nice. No stove, but grill outside and microwave, coffeemaker worked for us.
Our VRBO was clean, quiet and serene. It was well stocked and had everything we needed. We loved the movies and books, and we especially liked the large walk in closet....we were able to put all our things in there and not clutter up the place with our belongings. The walk to the beach was lovely and beautiful, and so close. Thank you Mandy for supplying the boogie boards, beach chairs and the umbrella...so thoughtful. We will be back. Aloha !
This suite is very centrally located--it is 20-25 minutes from Honolulu and 45 minutes from the North Shore. It is just a few minutes drive from Kailua town, and Kailua Beach is only 300 yards away. You can drive along the coast to the South and within 25 minutes get to Seal Life Park, Mokapu Beach, Hanauma Bay for snorkelling. Many of my guests have commented that they found the location perfect as it is so central to everything.
