About Judy Boyd

We are an active family that enjoys the outdoors. Boating, golfing, kiteboarding and stand up paddle boarding are some of the things we do around Kailua. We also enjoy traveling but get homesick if gone from the islands too long.

Disclosure: owner is related to real estate agent who holds a real estate license in the State of Hawaii.

Judy Boyd purchased this house in 1991

Why Judy Boyd chose Kailua

This property fits our island lifestyle. A place where you can remove your slippers (flip flops), BBQ and hang loose.

What makes this house unique

Pool is a great addition to this home, its a great way to enjoy the sun when not at the beach. Location of this home is a bonus where you can walk to Kailua town to shop, eat and explore Kailua town. Also, a 10min walk to Kailua beach, one of the most beautiful beach in the world.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Judy's home in Kailua was perfect for our family of 6 (4 adults and 2 children). The photos accurately depicted the space, which was comfortable, clean, and just enough room for all of us. Judy went out of her way to call me after we'd arrived to make sure everything was working properly (it was!), which was such a kind gesture. We'd absolutely recommend renting this house to anyone wanting a low-key Hawaiian vacation--Kailua and nearby Lanikai have some of the most incredible beaches I've seen anywhere. Plus the house is only 20 minutes or so away from Honolulu and Waikiki, if you're into the hustle and bustle. Mahalo again, Judy! And thank you for your lovely home! Best, Ashley

Hawaii life!

  • 4 of 5

We loved the house and how close it was to great dining and proximity to main roads and the beach. The pool was freezing, but we did go in February, which is a little cooler even in Hawaii. The house is perfect for sleeping with the windows open.

The two bathrooms are in the hallway which is great for a rental! The washer and dryer was a big bonus!

Judy sent multiple messages checking on us and always responded when we had questions.

I would highly recommend this property when staying in Kailua! We loved breakfast at Kono's and Over Easy, the Kailua pork is amazing!

Thank you, Judy!

Comfortable home, convenient location

  • 4 of 5

The property owner: Judy doesn't take personal ownership for any issues, dissatisfaction or lacking of amenities. I offered a very lengthy feedback email about several non-urgent issues and suggestions. She blamed all issues on "her" housekeepers and never ever apologized on her own behalf as the property owner. She doesn't believe it's necessary to have a household fire extinguisher or carbon monoxide detectors inside a home that has gas appliances. Her response was that I could have bought one& she would have reimbursed me. There were 6 washcloths and we had to wash them every morning for 7 days. Her response was that in October while she was in the home, there was an adequate amount. There was open food in the frig including tequila, ranch dressing without a label and shelves were not wiped clean. I can see leaving previous guests spices or unopened food. There was a used bar of soap in the shower. "Her" housekeepers may need to be supplied with a very detailed checklist if they are going to have oversights as such. I've vacationed in 6+ VRBO's and have never received such an unprofessional response from a property owner when offering feedback. The frontload washing machine was so full of brown slimy gunk on the rubber that I spent time wiping it and running a sanitizing cycle 3 times in my 8 day stay. She never even thanked me. She was rude and asumtious in stating that because the housekeeper found sand on the wood floor inside the house after our departure that no one must have rinsed off before entering the house and that posted vacationing rules were not followed by us. There were ZERO "rules" posted. It's odd that she even states that. The posting is very vague and is what was emailed to me after I booked. No mention about no dirt or sand can be on the floor. I did however pay a $400 cleaning fee and left that home in better condition in which I arrived.

The home was nice, comfy, accommodating, convenient and fit our family size. We enjoyed our beach vacation. Kalama beach is a short 2+ block walking distance and is clean and safe for families. The Crepe's restaurant down the road is yummy. Walgreens has overall better prices than Safeway and are more like Mainland prices. Whole Foods is better and fresher option for groceries over Safeway.

Owner's Response: Aloha, I appreciate every feedback and I'm always open to suggestions. I do apologize if your expectations were not met. I cater to everyone and that is why every single day you had questions I've always responded and asked you if you needed anything or if you have concerns. Your response was always that things are okay. It would have been very easy if you would have voiced your concerns, I could have correct them right there and then. Sometimes things gets missed or does not get done by our housekeeper and when this happens it's better to let me know so that I can send her back to the house and do a better job. And of course if you were in dire need of fire extinguisher I would have our housekeeper pick one up for you, and it would not be an issue. You made a big deal out of nothing. If you want something cleaned, mention it so that I can help you. Don't wait to go home and complain, how Am I suppose to service your needs if I do not know them. Vacating instruction is posted on the living room wall and also emailed to you along with your check in instruction. I practice ALOHA!

This property is fantastic for a Hawaii getaway on a budget

  • 5 of 5

We shared this property with friends and it was perfect for our needs. It meant we didn't have to spend alot of money on food and an expensive hotel and got to take advantage of its short distance to shops and the beach.

Very spacious, clean, lots of extras

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in Kailua! This house had plenty of space for us and provided many items (chairs, mats, boogie boards, coolers, towels, laundry, etc) that made our stay very enjoyable. The pool was a lot bigger than expected! We had some crazy weather but having a pool for the kids to swim in was such a blessing! Loved the outside shower and fully stocked kitchen! Thank you!

Clean, beautiful, and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. We had some issues with the airport and rental cars and the Boyd's helped us out by giving us rides for the first day. They were very accommodating and their house was well furnished and stocked for trips to the beach. When we return to Hawaii, I would absolutely stay at this house. Unbelievable.
