About Rachel

We have offered hospitality in Kailua for 27+ years and love to share our corner of paradise. Paul is an architect and Rachel is a landscape architect and planner. Our three children are young adults who are in and out but are primarily living on the mainland enjoying adventures and working in Utah and California..

Rachel purchased this house in 1987

Why Rachel chose Kailua

We love Kailua. We've hosted guests to our island for 25+ years in Kailua. The location between magnificent white sandy beach and tiny Kailua Town is perfect. You can add the Ginger Studio to your booking to make a unit which can sleep a party of five.

What makes this house unique

Sheffield House's location is extremely convenient to the beach, to Kailua town, or to Honolulu. We have been offering vacation rental hospitality for over 25 years. A truly unique benefit is the black cocker spaniel, named Mai'le who is now 12 years old and our unofficial greeter. (Mai'le is a girl's name. A former Miss Hawaii was named Mai'le. It is also the name of a green vine which is used for leis for men in traditional Hawaiian weddings or the prom.) Another unique benefit is the absolutely gorgeous white shower tree in the Garden of the Garden Suite which blooms from June - September.

Sheffield Suite is everything we could want. The interior space is plenty large enough for 2, and is clean, well kept, comfortable and attractive.

The out doors garden with table and chairs for eating or just sitting is beautiful. It adds a sense of privacy and seclusion in what in actuality is a residential neighborhood.

Paul and Rachel are wonderful hosts. They are friendly, interesting, and there to help with any questions or concerns.

We love staying in Kailua. It's quiet, has an exceptionally beautiful beach, and is only 20 -30 minutes to Honolulu is we want to do something in the city.

Quiet, but a great location

  • 5 of 5

The perfect location. It's a short walk to the beach and Kailua town, and super-easy access to the Pali highway to head elsewhere on the island. Possibly the best part though was spending every morning enjoying breakfast on the private patio.

I was fortunate enough to secure this booking last minute for the 4th of July weekend. The airshow and fireworks in Kailua were well worth the crowded streets and beach. Rachel and Paul were the utmost gracious of hosts, I immediately felt welcome and secure. I enjoyed our chats and appreciated that they invited me to a small BBQ they were having in their back yard. The cottage was clean and cozy, and it had everything I needed. The sense of community I experienced at the Sheffield house and in Kailua felt like the perfect way to spend this summer holiday!

Great get-away location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been to the Sheffield House many times and always find it immaculate. Paul & Rachel are both very accommodating and friendly, without being intrusive. As the vacation rental units are adjoined to their home, they are readily available for questions or concerns.

Regarding roaches that a previous guest mentioned, I do not understand how, if they emptied their trash daily (as is required), and stored their food in containers or in the frig that it was such a problem. Hawaii is the tropics, afterall, and sometimes no matter how clean a place is, they find their way in. But since that guest made such a big deal about it, I called and verified that the Sheffield's do have an account for regular pest control.

I highly recommend the Sheffield House and would not hesitate to return again

Cozy garden setting, feels like home

  • 5 of 5

I stayed only in the cottage, so this review is not for the garden suite. I arrived late evening and Rachel had left the lights on for me. I immediately felt like I was staying at a relative's home instead of a rental. The "secret garden" mentioned in the description feels like an outdoor living room for the unit, as it is just steps outside the door and for use only by the cottage guests. The unit is very private. I could hear the folks next door in the other unit (they are connected via a door) a tiny bit at times, but it was not bothersome or often. The fountains outside are wonderful to fall asleep to and although there is road noise at rush times (relatively speaking...Kailua is not a big town) it was not a problem for sleeping. Maile, the resident dog, is adorable and around, but only to say hi and move on. You are responsible for your own dishes and upkeep. There is no sink in the kitchenette, but a nice big bathroom sink. The beach is a very short walk. I've stayed at 6 properties in the Kailua area and this one is in my top two. Highly recommended for a romantic getaway or personal retreat.
