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 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.

Perfect home base for our Hawaiian adventure!

  • 5 of 5

Sweet welcome note when we arrived, clean, bug free suite, cute puppy coming by for steak scraps.... it was perfect! Rachel and Paul have created a very private oasis in a convenient spot. Easy access to the best beach ever! Kailua town is awesome and a perfect home base to explore the whole island.

The suite had everything we needed. Loved the open air shower. Bed was not too hard or too soft and had plenty of pillows. The ceiling fans and ac made it easy to stay comfortable. Loved having an assigned parking spot and wifi. As some other reviews have mentioned, we did hear the folks in the room next door a couple times but, im sure they heard us and it wasn't a big deal.

All in all, we were super happy with our vacation and we didn't want to leave.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

A great experience all-around. The location could not be better - within walking distance of most anything you'd want to see or go to in Kailua. Access to the beach is a short 5-minute walk away. The living space was lovely - much thought was put into the amenities and conveniences that would be appreciated. It is probably best if the two suites were on the same time table since it is possible to hear their movements and background noise of their conversations, but this is a small item of note. All around just terrific!

I Knew It When I Saw It

  • 5 of 5

As soon as I saw the website for this place, I thought, "This is It" Luckily the dates were open, and we reserved the Garden Suite. We LOVED it. A little fully equipped kitchen, saltillo tile, light, bright, airy with louvered windows, a private front garden, and an *open air tiled shower* My favorite thing!!! All the beach toys were there, and a short walk took us to Kailua Beach for a morning walk. The cinnamon bread for breakfast was ONO! And the best thing was going to buy poke in Kailua town, and bringing it back to eat with a couple of beers! We will be ever grateful to Rachel for turning us on to Poke! The owners were fun and easy to chat with. This would be my Go To place on Oahu! Easy to get everywhere! Cata & Doug

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.

We are located between Kailua Beach and Kailua Town.

Beautiful sandy Kailua beach is 10 houses in the other direction. A hike to the pillboxes (concrete lookout stations built in World War 2) over Lanikai gives a wonderful view of Kailua bay and the ocean.
